AD: Airbus

AD NUMBER: 2006-12-02
MANUFACTURER: Airbus
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2006-12-02
SUMMARY:
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus Model A318, A319, A320,and A321 airplanes. This AD requires inspecting to determine the part number and serial number of the fuel tank boost pumps and, for airplanes with affected pumps, revising the Airplane Flight Manual (AFM) and the FAA-approved maintenance program. This AD also provides for optional terminating action for compliance with the revisions to the AFM and the maintenance program.This AD results from a report that a fuel tank boost pump failed in service, due to a detached screw of the boost pump housing that created a short circuit between the stator and rotor of the boost pump motor and tripped a circuit breaker. We are issuing this AD to ensure that the flight crew is aware of procedures to prevent the presence of a combustible air-fuel mixture in the fuel tank boost pump, which, in the event of electrical arcing in the pump motor, could result in an explosion and loss of the airplane.
