AD: Airbus

AD NUMBER: 2006-12-05
MANUFACTURER: Airbus
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2006-12-05
SUMMARY:
The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD), which applies to certain Airbus Model A300 B4-600 and A300 C4-600 series airplanes. That AD currently requires a one-time inspection to detect damage of the pump diffuser guide slots (bayonet) of the center tank fuel pumps, the pump diffuser housings, and the pump canisters; repetitive inspections to detect damage of the fuel pumps and the fuel pump canisters; and corrective action, if necessary. This new AD adds, for new airplanes, repetitive inspections of the pump bodies for cracking, damage,and missing and broken fasteners; repetitive inspections of the fuel pump canisters for a cracked flange web; and corrective actions if necessary. For all airplanes, this new AD also adds replacement of the fuel pump canisters with new reinforced fuel pump canisters, which ends the repetitive inspections. This AD results from fuel system reviews conducted by the manufacturer.We are issuing this AD to detect and correct damage of the center tank fuel pumps and fuel pump canisters, which could result in separation of a pump from its electrical motor housing, loss of flame trap capability, and a possible fuel ignition source in the center fuel tank.
