AD: Airbus SAS Airplanes

AD NUMBER: 2019-08-06

PRODUCT: Certain Airbus SAS Model A330-200 Freighter, -200, and -300 series airplanes.

ACTION: Final Rule.

SUMMARY: The FAA is superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2016-16-01, which applied to the aircraft listed above.

AD 2016-16-01 required an inspection of affected structural parts in the cargo and cabin compartments to determine if proper heat treatment has been done, and replacement or repair if necessary.

This AD retains the requirements of AD 2016-16-01 and requires inspection of additional locations of the cabin compartment structure. This AD was prompted by a report of a manufacturing defect (i.e., improperly heat-treated materials) that affects the durability of affected parts in the cargo and cabin compartments.

DATES: This AD is effective June 13, 2019.

COST: The FAA estimates that this AD affects 20 airplanes of U.S. registry. Operators may incur the following costs in order to comply with this AD:

  • Retained actions from AD 2016-16-01: 11 work-hours × $85 per hour = $935 per airplane.
  • New additional work: 5 work-hours × $85 per hour = $425 per airplane.
  • Estimated Costs of On-Condition Action: 45 work-hours × $85 per hour = $3,825 per airplane.
FMI: AD
