EASA hasn't issued an airworthiness directives for several days but it is making up for it today.
One you should be aware of is a proposed airworthiness directive (10-016) to replace the Airbus A340's thrust reverser actuation system doors.
EASA issued the proposed AD, which effects A340-200 and -300 aircraft, because the thrust reverser pivoting doors opened on two -200 aircraft during climb. "These events were the result of a primary lock malfunction and incorrect engagement of the secondary lock," says EASA.
To prevent more door openings, EASA proposes requiring operators to install a "new modified primary lock and a new modified actuator on the 10 critical thrust reverser pivoting doors."
If you want to comment on this proposed AD, please do so before March 10. Email comments to ADs@easa.europa.eu.
