AD: The Boeing Company 737 Airplanes

AD NUMBER: 2012-08-17

PRODUCT: Certain Boeing Company Model 737-100, -200, -200C, -300, -400, and -500 series airplanes equipped with analog transient suppression devices (ATSDs) installed in accordance with Supplemental Type Certificate ST00146BO.
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2012-08-17
ACTION: Final Rule

SUMMARY: This AD was prompted by multiple reports of corrosion on ATSDs. This AD requires revising the maintenance program to incorporate certain limitations. The FAA is issuing this AD to detect and correct corrosion on ATSDs, which could result in the loss of high voltage transient protection (e.g., lightning protection) in the fuel tanks and consequent fuel tank explosion and loss of the airplane.

DATES: This AD is effective May 31, 2012.

FMI: AD
