MANUFACTURER: Airbus Model A300 and A310 Series
Airplanes, and Model A300 B4-600, B4-600R, and F4-600R Series
Airplanes, and Model C4-605R Variant F Airplanes (Collectively
Called A300-600 Series Airplanes) SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2011-10-17
SUMMARY: This AD results from mandatory
continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an
aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an
unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the
unsafe condition as:
The airworthiness limitations
applicable to the Damage Tolerant Airworthiness Limitation Items
(DT ALI) are currently listed in Airbus ALI Documents, which are
referenced in the A300, A310, and A300-600 Airworthiness
Limitations Section (ALS) Part 2. Airbus has recently revised the
ALI Documents, which have been approved by the European Aviation
Safety Agency (EASA).
The actions contained in these
revised documents, which introduce more restrictive maintenance
requirements and/or airworthiness limitations, have been identified
as mandatory actions for continued airworthiness.
The unsafe condition is fatigue cracking, damage, or corrosion
in principal structural elements, which could result in reduced
structural integrity of the airplane.
