Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus SAS Model A350-941 airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report of un-torqued nuts on certain slat and flap shaft junctions of the wings. This AD requires a one-time inspection on each junction of certain slat and flap shafts for discrepancies, and corrective actions if necessary. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Trig Avionics Limited Transponders
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Trig Avionics Limited TT31, Avidyne Corporation AXP340, and BendixKing/Honeywell International KT74 Mode S transponders. This proposed AD was prompted by the discovery that the retaining cam that engages in the mounting tray may not withstand g-forces experienced during an emergency landing. This proposed AD would require a one-time inspection of the transponder installation to determine if this is a conventional aft-facing installation, and depending on the findings, removal of the affected transponder for modification. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
