Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2021-07003
Type: Rule
Date: 2021-04-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2020-01- 10, which applied to certain Airbus SAS Model A350-941 airplanes. AD 2020-01-10 required installing flight control and guidance system (FCGS) software (SW) X11 Standard (STD).
