AD: Eurocopter France

AD NUMBER: 2008-05-16
MANUFACTURER: Eurocopter France
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2008-05-16
SUMMARY:
This amendment adopts a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Eurocopter France (ECF) Model EC130 B4 helicopters that requires, within 110 hours time-in-service (TIS), modifying and testing the wiring of the battery overheat sensing circuit.

This amendment is prompted by a malfunction in the battery overheat sensing circuit found during a scheduled inspection.

The actions specified by this AD are intended to correct the connection of the thermal switch to the cockpit indicator light, to notify the flight crew of an overheated battery, and to prevent a thermal runaway of the battery, an in-flight fire, and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.
