AD: Airbus

AD NUMBER: 2004-20-06
MANUFACTURER:
Airbus
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2004-20-06
SUMMARY: The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model A330 and A340series airplanes. This AD requires revising the airplane flight manual to provide procedures forthe flightcrew to follow in the event of the loss of all liquid crystal display (LCD) units on airplanes equipped with the EIS2 standard of electronic instrument system. This AD is prompted by reports of the brief but total loss of all LCD units during cruise on airplanes equipped with the EIS2standard of electronic instrument system. We are issuing this AD to provide procedures to theflightcrew to restore operation of these LCD units and prevent prolonged loss of critical flight information to the flightcrew and the consequent reduced ability of the flightcrew to control theairplane during adverse flight conditions.
