Type: Rule
Date: 2018-08-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2017-15-17, which applied to certain Airbus Model A300 B4-600R series airplanes, Model A300 C4-605R Variant F airplanes, and Model A300 F4-600R series airplanes. AD 2017-15-17 required an inspection of the lower area of a certain frame (FR) radius for cracking, and corrective action if necessary. This AD requires new repetitive inspections of the forward fitting lower radius of a certain frame for cracking, and corrective actions if necessary. This AD was prompted by a determination that repetitive inspections and applicable corrective actions are necessary. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
