AD: Airbus

AD NUMBER: 2005-20-32
MANUFACTURER: Airbus
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2005-20-32
SUMMARY:
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus Model A330-200 and -300 and A340-200 and -300 series airplanes. This AD requires inspecting to determine the part number and serial number of the left- and right-hand elevator assemblies, performing related investigative and corrective actions if necessary, and re-protecting the elevator assembly. This AD results from reports that areas on the top skin panel of the right-hand elevator have disbonded due to moisture penetration.

We are issuing this AD to prevent disbonding of the elevator assembly, which could reduce the structural integrity of the elevator and result inreduced controllability of the airplane.
