AD NUMBER: 2007-07-01
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2007-07-01
SUMMARY: The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness
directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model A300-600 airplanes.
This AD requires an inspection to determine if certain spoiler
actuators having certain part numbers are installed, and eventual
replacement of all affected actuators. This AD results from failure
of a distribution block, which was detected during fatigue
qualification tests of certain spoiler actuators.
We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the distribution
block, which could result in leakage of the hydraulic fluid that
supplies those actuators.
This failure could cause failure of one of the three spoiler
actuators and the associated hydraulic circuits, which could result
in loss of those hydraulic circuits and consequent reduced
controllability of the airplane.
