Airworthiness Directives; BAE Systems (Operations) Limited Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-18821
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-08-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2010-10-13, for all BAE Systems (Operations) Limited Model BAe 146 and Avro 146 series airplanes. AD 2010-10-13 required repetitive inspections of the wing fixed leading edge and front spar structure for corrosion and cracking, and repair if necessary. This new AD requires revised inspection procedures that terminate a previously approved inspection procedure. This AD was prompted by revised inspection procedures issued by the Design Approval Holder (DAH). We are issuing this AD to detect and correct corrosion and cracking of the wing fixed leading edge and front spar structure, which could result in reduced structural integrity of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-18169
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-08-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus Model A318, A319, A320, and A321 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of premature aging of certain passenger chemical oxygen generators that resulted in the generators failing to activate. This AD requires an inspection to determine if certain passenger chemical oxygen generators are installed and replacement of affected passenger chemical oxygen generators. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the passenger chemical oxygen generator to activate and consequently not deliver oxygen during an emergency, possibly resulting in injury to the airplane occupants.
