Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-25747
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-11-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model A318, A319, A320, and A321 series airplanes; all Model A330-200 Freighter, -200, and -300 series airplanes; and all Model A340-200, -300, -500, and -600 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of false traffic collision avoidance system (TCAS) resolution advisories.

We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
