Compliance:

For Requirements 1 and 2 - Within 30 days after the effective date of this Directive or
prior to the issue of a Certificate of Airworthiness, whichever occurs first.
This Airworthiness Directive becomes effective on 22 June 2007.

Background:

The DGAC and EASA ADs listed in Table 1 and 2 of this Directive require one time
actions for which the compliance date and/or period has passed. CASA has
determined that these ADs may be applicable to recently registered or imported
Australian aircraft. This Directive is issued to ensure all State of Design ADs are
complied with.
CASA appreciates that, due to date of aircraft manufacture or aircraft configuration
and modification status, not all the ADs listed in Table 1 and 2 will be applicable to
all ATR 42 series aeroplanes.

AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVE
For the reasons set out in the background section, the CASA delegate whose signature appears below issues the following Airworthiness Directive (AD) under
subregulation 39.001(1) of CASR 1998. The AD requires that the action set out in the requirement section (being action that the delegate considers necessary to
correct the unsafe condition) be taken in relation to the aircraft or aeronautical product mentioned in the applicability section: (a) in the circumstances mentioned in
the requirement section; and (b) in accordance with the instructions set out in the requirement section; and (c) at the time mentioned in the compliance section.

AD/ATR 42/3

Propeller Pitch Change System Components

8/2007

Applicability:

ATR 42-200, -300 and -320 series aircraft.

Requirement:

Carry out ultrasonic cleaning of the Propeller Control Unit servo ball screw on
Hamilton Sundstrand 14SF5 propellers in accordance with Hamilton Sundstrand
Component Maintenance Manual 61-21-07.
Note: DGAC AD 2002-070-090(B) R1 dated 15 May 2002 refers.

Compliance:

Before reaching 10,500 flight hours since new or since last critical inspection; or
Before further flight, in the case of contamination; or
Before further flight, in the case of anomalies found during production acceptance
tests.
This Airworthiness Directive becomes effective on 2 August 2007.

Background:

Three cases of propeller pitch lock during final approach have been experienced on
ATR aircraft. During two of these events the asymmetric power resulting from the
propeller pitch lock was not recognized by the crew during landing and the aircraft
veered off the runway after selection of reverse power while the Low Pitch
condition was not effective for both engines.
On one case the investigation led on the suspected components of the propeller pitch
control system showed significant anomalies of the pitch control unit ball screw. The
hang up and the loss of efficiency noted on the test bench are due to ball screw
contamination. These anomalies could contribute to a pitch lock condition when the
combine with another propeller component failure of the pitch control system.
The actions detailed in the AD are intended to clean the ball screw and avoid the
propeller lock situation which could lead to reduced controllability of the aircraft
during landing.

This Airworthiness Directive becomes effective on 25 October 2007.

Background:

An ATR 42-300 experienced a collapse of the Right (Starboard) Main Landing Gear
when taxiing. The cause of the failure was subsequently found to be a crack in the
side brace assembly originating from a corrosion pit in a very highly stressed area of
the upper arm. The dimensions of the corrosion pit were lower than the minimum
defect size that can be detected during overhaul inspections.
This AD is issued to require re-inspection of MLG side brace assemblies previously
inspected in accordance with Rev 1 of Messier Dowty SB 631-32-191 and reduces the
inspection interval initially proposed in EASA AD 2007-0112 in order to maintain the

screw. The concerned wiring harness includes rudder trim, pitch trim and stick
pusher control wires. Damages on those wires might lead to the loss of fail safe
criteria for those critical functions.
To address the unsafe condition, this Directive mandates a one-time inspection and a
routing modification of the electrical wires in the bulkhead area.

AD/ATR 42/24 (continued)
Background:

DGAC AD F-1986-130-003 was issued following an incident during a training flight


when a temporary loss of the aircraft pitch control occurred due to a suspected
tailplane stall that would have been caused by the conjunction of ice accretion on tail
surface, flaps extension at 45 and airplane by the approach speed.
Revision 1 of AD F-1986-130-003, in April 1997, prohibited the use of flaps at the
45 configuration, except for emergency situations, and mandated the installation of a
mechanical stop along with new markings through ATR modification (Mod) 01192
(ATR Service Bulletin (SB) ATR 42-27-0008). However the DGAC AD let the
possibility for some operators to request an operational exemption, based on the
aircraft operating network, granted by their National Aviation Authority. For these
specific cases, the mechanical stop could be removed and the markings modified, in
accordance with Mod 01314 (SB ATR42-27-0080).
These days, with second-hand aircraft movements worldwide, it is likely that some
aircraft which were previously granted with an operational exemption can be
currently operated without the flaps 45 limitation in geographic locations where the
use of the 45 configuration may represent an unsafe condition.
This AD mandates AFM TR No.51 of the AFM with modification of the aircraft so as
to restrict the maximum flaps extension to 30. These actions are intended to prevent
an uncontrollable nose pitch-down at low altitude resulting from a tail plane stall
caused by ice accretions on tail surfaces in conjunction with full flaps down at 45
and the aircraft at approach speeds.

AD/ATR 42/27 (continued)
Compliance:

Not later than the second C check or within 72 months, whichever occurs first after
the effective date of this Directive.
This Airworthiness Directive becomes effective on 22 October 2009.

Background:

This Directive is intended to minimize hazards on ATR42 aeroplanes associated with


the inadvertent encounter of severe icing conditions (which are beyond current
certification envelope requisites for Part 25 aeroplanes) by providing the flight crew
with measurable and objective evidence and timely alert when such severe ice
conditions are encountered.
The accumulated experience on the worldwide fleet of commuter aeroplanes together
with recently reported ATR42/72 in-flight incidents, show that a long exposure to
severe icing conditions, outside the certification envelope, can result in unsafe
conditions. This could lead to rapid performance degradation resulting in sudden
stall of the lifting/controlling aerodynamic surfaces and subsequent loss of control of
the aeroplane.
Prolonged exposures to these severe icing conditions are due to the lack of crew
awareness of these extreme environmental conditions leading to their late detection
and/or untimely or incorrect application of the existing AFM procedures, which
require the flight crew to actively monitor the encountered icing conditions and to
leave them as soon as they are recognised as severe.
Current ATR42 AFM emergency procedures for the encounter of severe icing
conditions remain valid and must be applied by the flight crew. However, their
application is based on the detection of such severe icing conditions by means of
flight crew subjective interpretation of:

an unexpected decrease of the aeroplane speed and/or rate of climb and/or;

a set of very different visual cues like ice covering unheated portion of either
forward side windows, possibly associated with water splashing and streaming
on the windshield and/or;

several secondary indications based on visual observation of ice accretion on


different parts of the airframe.

All these together require the flight crew to perform a final qualitative judgement
based upon its experience to fly icing conditions, and which could be different
depending on the specific circumstances of each case where other concurrent
environmental factors like poor light conditions, night operations, etc., can impair the
decision-making process.

AD/ATR 42/27 (continued)
In addition, even if the severe icing conditions are quickly identified by the crew and
the escape manoeuvre promptly initiated, it may still take a few minutes for the
aircraft to exit these conditions.
In order to improve flight crew situation awareness in icing conditions, ATR
developed a new function called Aircraft Performance Monitoring (APM) that is
available on ATR aeroplanes with Multi Purpose Computer (MPC) installed.
The APM processes a collection of different parameters (among them the aeroplane
take-off weight as selected by the crew on a specific rotary selector), and in particular
computes and compares the actual drag on the current flying path with the
theoretical/expected value. From the comparison, a measurable and objective
determination of the performance degradation possibly due to abnormal ice accretion
can be calculated. When the performance degradation passes given thresholds, the
APM annunciates warning signals by triggering up to two different levels of alerts
while on climb/descent and three levels of alerts on cruise to the flight crew to make
them aware of potential severe icing conditions degrading the aircraft performance.
It is recognised that, although the ice protection system of the aeroplane is compliant
with the current certification envelope for flight into known-icing conditions, the
possible unsafe condition originating from a prolonged exposure to severe icing
environment will be annunciated by the alert(s) provided by the APM, which has
proved to be reliable during its in-service experience.
Because the APM warning will only indicate the significant aerodynamic penalties,
the current AFM Emergency Procedures for severe icing remain totally valid and
applicable. No relief to the pilot procedures concerning the current visual cues to
detect severe icing conditions can result from this Directive because APM function
provides flight crews with objective indications which complement and enhance the
situation awareness.

(EC) No 216/2008 on behalf of the European Community, its Member States and of the
European third countries that participate in the activities of EASA under Article 66 of that
Regulation.
This AD is issued in accordance with EC 1702/2003, Part 21A.3B. In accordance with EC 2042/2003 Annex I, Part M.A.301, the
continuing airworthiness of an aircraft shall be ensured by accomplishing any applicable ADs. Consequently, no person may

Manufacturer(s):

ATR-GIE Avions de Transport Rgional (formerly AEROSPATIALEAERITALIA, AEROSPATIALE-ALENIA, AEROSPATIALE ATR-ALENIA,

Applicability:

All ATR 42 series aircraft models, all serial numbers, except aircraft that
have received ATR modification 05355 in production or ATR Service Bulletin
(SB) ATR42-28-0039 Revision 3 or any later approved revision in service
and
All ATR 72 series aircraft models, all serial numbers, except aircraft that
have received ATR modification 05356 in production or ATR SB ATR72-281019 Revision 5 or any later approved revision in service.

Reason:

Further to the accident of Boeing 747-131 (flight TWA 800), the FAA has
published a set of new rules related to the fuel tank safety, including the
Special Federal Aviation Regulation 88 (SFAR 88).
The JAA has issued an Interim Policy JAA INT/POL 25/12, to recommend
the application of a similar requirement to the National Aviation Authorities
(NAA).
This recommendation was followed by French DGAC, which rendered the
compliance to JAA INT/POL 25/12 mandatory for all ATR Aircraft.
Under this regulation, all holders of type certificates are required to conduct a
design review of their fuel tank systems against explosion risk. It also
requires the development and implementation of maintenance and

EASA Form 110

Page 1/3

EASA AD No : 2007-0226R1

inspection instructions to maintain the safety of the fuel tank system.


To answer JAA INT/POL 25/12, and in accordance with SFAR 88
requirements and guideline, ATR carried out a safety review on the fuel tank
systems and zones adjacent to the fuel tanks on all ATR models using
relevant safety assessment methods of JAR 25.1309.
As a result of this safety review, ATR developed for ATR 42 the modification
05355 (SB ATR42-28-0039), and for ATR 72 the modification 05356 (SB
ATR72-28-1019). Those modifications consist in the installation of fuses
adapters on wiring entering the fuel tanks and current limitation devices. For
ATR 72 aircraft, the modification also requires replacement of the high level
sensors with new sensors having shorter harness.
Embodiment of these modifications or Service bulletins provides full
compliance with JAR 25.1309 and eliminates the unsafe conditions in
accordance with SFAR 88 and AC 25-981-1B guidelines.
EASA Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2006-0186 was issued to mandate
compliance with SB ATR42-28-0039 Revision 1 and SB ATR72-28-1019
Revision 1. Missing components or discrepancies depending on aircraft
variants were evidenced during its application. Consequently, both SBs were
revised to correct these situations.
The initial issue of the present AD superseded AD 2006-0186, and required
application of SB ATR42-28-0039 Revision 3 and ATR72-28-1019 Revision
5 as well as some additional works for aircraft to which a previous revision of
those SBs has been applied.
For logistical considerations and after evaluation of fleet exposure, the
revision 1 of this AD is published to extend the compliance date from 31
December 2009 to 28 August 2011.

ATR72-201, ATR72-102, ATR72-202, ATR72-211, ATR72-212, and ATR72212A aeroplanes, all serial numbers.

Reason:

Following a policy statement about demonstration of compliance with the


certification requirements for prevention of ignition sources inside the fuel
tanks of transport category airplanes ATR conducted a safety review of the
aircraft fuel tank system against safety requirements of CS 25.901(c) and
25.1309.The assessment showed that it was necessary to introduce specific
fuel system related Maintenance Significant Items (MSIs) and Critical Design
Configuration Control Limitation (CDCCL) items in order to preserve the fuel
tank system ignition source prevention features from any configuration
alterations that could occur during maintenance actions, repairs or
modifications. Failure to preserve those critical ignition source prevention
features could result in a fuel tank explosion.
The Time-Limits Document - that is appended to the ATR Maintenance
Review Board Report (MRBR) - is an EASA-approved document that
synthesizes all MSIs, as are the systems Certification Maintenance
Requirements (CMRs) and Structural Significant Items (SSIs).
CMRs and SSIs are requisites of the design approval. Failure to comply with
the CMRs and SSIs requirements nullifies the design approval because any

EASA Form 110

Page 1/3

EASA AD No : 2009-0242

non-compliance could result in a catastrophic failure.


Time-Limits documents at Revision 7 for ATR42-200/-300/-320, Revision 6 for
ATR42-400/-500 and Revision 8 for ATR72 were issued to introduce the
Functional test of fuse adapters (Task 28.10.00-2) - whose installation has
been mandated by AD 2007-0226 - to extend to 12.5 years (150 Months) the
interval for the detailed visual inspection of the fuel tanks and associated parts
and components thereof (Task 28.10.00-1) and to add the CDCCL section
related to the fuel tank safety.
Consequently, to ensure the management and control of the Airworthiness
Limitations, this AD retains the requirements of AD 2006-0219R2, which is
superseded, and clarifies the required compliance schedules, without
introducing additional technical requirements.

LHotellier Service Bulletin (SB) 863521-26-001 Revision 2 dated 04 February
2010.
The Civil Aviation Authority of the United Kingdom (UK) has informed EASA that
significant quantities of Halon 1211 gas, determined to be outside the required
specification, have been supplied to the aviation industry for use in fire
extinguishing equipment. Halon 1211 (BCF) is used in lavatory waste bin fire
extinguishers and portable fire extinguishers, usually fitted or stowed in aircraft
passenger cabins and flight decks.

Reason:

EASA published Safety Information Bulletin (SIB) 2009-39 on 23 October 2009


to make the aviation community aware of this safety concern.
The results of the ongoing investigation have now established that LyonTech
Engineering Ltd, a UK-based company, has supplied further consignments of
Halon 1211 (BCF) to LHotellier that do not meet the required specification. This
Halon 1211 has subsequently been used to fill certain P/N 863521-01 portable
fire extinguishers that are now likely to be installed in or carried on board ATR
aeroplanes.

EASA Form 110

Page 1/3

EASA AD No.: 2010-0061

The contaminated nature of this gas, when used against a fire, may provide
reduced fire suppression, endangering the safety of the aeroplane and its
occupants. In addition, extinguisher activation may lead to the release of toxic
fumes, possibly causing injury to aeroplane occupants.
For the reasons described above, EASA issued AD 2009-0276 to require the
identification and removal from service of certain batches of fire extinguishers
and replacement with serviceable units.
Since that AD was issued, LHotellier discovered that when revising the SB to
revision 1, a group of serial numbers was inadvertently deleted.
For the reason described above, this AD retains the requirements of EASA AD
2009-0276R1, which is superseded, and expands the Applicability by
referencing the corrected LHotellier SB 863521-26-001 Revision 2.
Effective Date:

14 April 2010
Required as indicated, unless accomplished previously:
Re-statement of AD 2009-0276R1 requirements, applicable to aeroplanes with
LHotellier fire extinguishers installed, listed by s/n in LHotellier SB 863521-26001 Revision 1 dated 28 January 2010:
(1) Within 4 months after 06 January 2010 [the effective date of EASA AD
2009-0276], accomplish the following:
(1.1) Identify the s/n of the P/N 863521-01 fire extinguisher(s) installed or
carried on board the aeroplane, and
(1.2) If any P/N 863521-01 fire extinguisher identified by s/n as required by
paragraph (1.1) of this AD is listed in LHotellier SB 863521-26-001,
remove it from the aeroplane and replace it with a serviceable unit.

One ATR operator has experienced in-flight elevator travel limitations with
unusual effort being necessary on pitch axis to control the aeroplane, while
the pitch mistrim message appeared on the ADU display. The elevators
seemed to be jammed.

Reason:

During the post-flight Inspection, it was discovered that the LH elevator lower
stop assembly was broken at the level of the angles, which may have
prevented the elevator to respond normally to the flight control input.
This condition, if not detected and corrected, could lead to reduced control of
the aeroplane.
For the reasons described above, and as a precautionary measure, this AD
requires a one-time inspection of the elevator hinge fittings and the reporting
of all findings. Depending on the results, further action may be considered.

Effective Date:

Applicability:

ATR 42-500 aeroplanes, from Manufacturer Serial Number (MSN) 671 to 815
inclusive, except MSN 811.
ATR 72-212A aeroplanes, from MSN 769 to MSN 914 inclusive, except MSN

Note: Not all aeroplanes to which this AD applies are affected by all the required
actions; see paragraph (1) of the Required Actions section of this AD which
refers to ATR Service Bulletins for detailed applicability and exceptions.

Reason:

Prompted by the findings that led to publication of EASA AD 2010-0063-E,


additional quality investigation showed that the non-conformity of certain
control rods, which was due to incorrect polishing during the rod manufacturing
process, could also affect other flight control rods.
These other potentially non-conforming control rods are installed on elevator
controls, rudder pedal assemblies and rudder tab controls of certain ATR
aeroplanes.
This condition, if not detected and corrected, could lead to failure of an
affected control rod which, under certain circumstances, could result in
reduced control of the aeroplane.
As a result of further investigations, other batches have been incriminated, in
addition to the ones identified by EASA AD 2010-0063-E, and new safety

EASA Form 110

Page 1/6

EASA AD No :2012-0064

analyses also indicate the need for replacement of the rods (within an adapted
compliance time), which had passed the check required by EASA AD 20100063-E. Consequently, EASA AD 2010-0063-E is superseded by this new AD.
For the reasons described above, this AD requires a one-time inspection of the
affected control systems rods and, depending on findings, replacement of the
affected rods.
Effective Date:

04 May 2012

Manufacturer(s):

ATR-GIE Avions de Transport Rgional (formerly Aerospatiale Aeritalia,


Aerospatiale Alenia, Aerospatiale ATR Alenia, EADS ATR Alenia).

Applicability:

Models ATR 42-200, 42-300, 42-320, 42-400 and 42-500 aeroplanes, from
Manufacturer Serial Number (MSN) 003 up to MSN 623 inclusive, and
Models ATR 72-101, 72-102, 72-201, 72-202, 72-211, 72-212 and 72-212A
aeroplanes, from MSN 108 up to MSN 710 inclusive.

Reason:

Some cases of defective sealing have been reported on in-service aeroplanes


on Left-Hand (LH) and Right-Hand (RH), between the nacelle lower fairing and
the underwing box.
Investigation results have shown that this issue was due to either damaged or
missing seal and/or incorrect adjustment of the nacelle lower fairing.
This condition, if not detected and corrected, may decrease the extinguishing
agent efficiency, delay the fire extinction and allow fire propagation out of the
nacelle fire protected area, possibly resulting in damage to the aeroplane.
For the reasons described above, this AD requires a one-time inspection of the
affected area and, depending on findings, accomplishment of applicable
corrective actions to restore the area integrity.

AD No.: 2012-0193

Date: 25 September 2012


Note: This Airworthiness Directive (AD) is issued by EASA, acting in accordance with Regulation
(EC) No 216/2008 on behalf of the European Community, its Member States and of the European
third countries that participate in the activities of EASA under Article 66 of that Regulation.
This AD is issued in accordance with EC 748/2012, Part 21.A.3B. In accordance with EC 2042/2003 Annex I, Part M.A.301, the
continuing airworthiness of an aircraft shall be ensured by accomplishing any applicable ADs. Consequently, no person may operate an
aircraft to which an AD applies, except in accordance with the requirements of that AD, unless otherwise specified by the Agency [EC
2042/2003 Annex I, Part M.A.303] or agreed with the Authority of the State of Registry [EC 216/2008, Article 14(4) exemption].

Amendments

Manufacturer(s):

ATR-GIE Avions de Transport Rgional (formerly Aerospatiale Aeritalia,


Aerospatiale Alenia, Aerospatiale ATR- Alenia, EADS ATR Alenia).

Applicability:

ATR 42-200, ATR 42-300, ATR 42-320, ATR 42-400 and ATR 42-500 models, all
manufacturer serial numbers.

Reason:

Floor beam at Frame 26: During maintenance checks, the floor beam at frame
(FR) 26 was found cracked on several ATR 42 aeroplanes.
This condition, if not detected and corrected, could lead to reduce the structural
integrity of the aeroplane. A new Structural Significant Items (SSI) task will be
introduced in the next revision of the ATR42 Time Limits document in order to
address this issue.
MRBR / MPD discrepancy on Wings item: A discrepancy has been noticed
between the Maintenance Review Board Report (MRBR) / Maintenance Planning
Document (MPD) and the Time Limits document. ATR modifications 02805 and
08039 were erroneously stated similar in the MRBR/MPD, inducing misleading
applicability of the SSI tasks depending upon the document used and leading
operators to miss several inspections, as evidenced during a recent review.
Following the structural investigation, new inspection thresholds have been
calculated and will be introduced in the next revisions of the ATR Time Limits
documents (Revision 8 and Revision 9, as applicable to the aeroplane models)
and MRBR/MPD documents.
For the reasons described above, this AD requires repetitive inspections of the
FR26 floor beam, and of several areas of the wings, as defined in the ATR42
Time Limits document and, depending on findings, the accomplishment of

TE.CAP.00110-003 European Aviation Safety Agency. All rights reserved.

Reason:

During the investigation performed on a failed dual distributor valve (DDV)


shipped to the DDV manufacturer, a non-conformity of crimping on an internal
valve has been detected by the DDV manufacturer. This defective crimping
creates a lack of tightness that prevents the complete deflation of the related
de-icing boot chamber during de-icing cycles.

discrepancy, has been identified by the DDV manufacturer.


This condition, if not detected and corrected, may affect the efficiency of the
pneumatic de-icing system, which could reduce flight safety in icing conditions.
For the reasons described above, this AD requires a one-time inspection of
each DDV to identify the serial number (s/n) and replacement of the nonconforming DDV units.
The affected DDV units installed on aeroplanes and those delivered as spares
have been retraced by ATR and all non-installed spare units have been
quarantined, which is why this AD only applies to specific MSN aeroplanes.

Windows Cockpit Forward Side Windows Inspection /


Replacement

Manufacturer(s):

ATR-GIE Avions de Transport Rgional (formerly Aerospatiale Aeritalia,


Aerospatiale Alenia, Aerospatiale ATR Alenia, EADS ATR Alenia).

Applicability:

ATR 42 and ATR 72 aeroplanes, all certified models, all manufacturer serial
numbers.

Reason:

In 2009, a Left-Hand (LH) forward side glass window of an ATR 72-212


aeroplane blew out while performing a ground pressure test. The investigation
results revealed some anomalies on the forward side window at the level of the
z-bar on the windows external side and at the level of the inner retainer on the
windows internal side. Such anomalies are considered as precursors of this
kind of failure. Air or water leakages between the z-bar and the outer glass ply,
or between the inner retainer and inner glass ply indicate the presence of
deteriorating structural components in the window.
Neither ATR nor PPG Aerospace have authorized repairs on the window z-bar
or z-bar sealant. Any attempted repairs on these forward side window z-bars
and/or z-bar sealants could lead to a similar event as described above.
In-flight loss of a forward side window would cause rapid cabin decompression,
possibly resulting in flight crew incapacitation and consequent reduced control,
or loss of control of the aeroplane, and cause the risk of injury to persons on
the ground. The loss of a forward side window while the aeroplane is on the
ground, due to differential cabin pressure, could result in injury to aeroplane
occupants or to persons outside the aeroplane.
To address this potential unsafe condition, EASA issued AD 2009-0159-E to

TE.CAP.00110-003 European Aviation Safety Agency. All rights reserved.

require repetitive inspections of the affected LH and right-hand (RH) cockpit


forward side glass windows and, in case discrepancies are found as defined in
PPG Aerospace Service Bulletin (SB) NP-158862-001, the replacement of the
window(s).
Since that AD was issued, a cockpit forward RH-side window blew out during
flight on an ATR72-212 aeroplane. Degradation of the window is considered to
have been the cause for this failure.
For the reasons described above, this AD retains the requirements of EASA AD
2009-0159-E, which is superseded, adds another inspection interval of 750
flight cycles (FC) and requires to accomplish the inspections in accordance with
the instructions of Revision 1 of PPG Aerospace SB NP-158862-001, which
provides more information on examples of discrepant conditions.
This AD also requires the removal from service of the affected Part Number
(P/N) NP158862-1 and P/N NP158862-2 cockpit forward side windows, which
constitutes terminating action for the repetitive inspections required by this AD.
Effective Date:

23 April 2013

Required Action(s)
and Compliance
Time(s):

Required as indicated, unless already accomplished:


(1) For all ATR 42 and ATR 72 aeroplanes that are equipped with PPG
Aerospace cockpit forward side glass windows P/N NP158862-1 and/or
P/N NP158862-2: Within 2 000 FC since first installation of the cockpit
forward side window on an aeroplane, or within 10 days after the effective
date of this AD, whichever occurs later, and, thereafter, at intervals not
exceeding 550 flight hours (FH) or 750 FC, whichever occurs first, inspect
the cockpit forward side window to detect any damage or discrepancies in
accordance with the instructions of PPG Aerospace SB NP-158862-001
Revision 1.
Note1: If, for a given cockpit forward side window, the FC accumulated since its
first installation on an aeroplane cannot be established, the total FC
accumulated by the aeroplane must be used to determine the compliance time
for the initial inspection of the affected cockpit forward side window.
(2) If, during any inspection as required by paragraph (1) of this AD, one of the
conditions, as specified in Table 1 of this AD, is found, reduce the interval
of the inspection as required by paragraph (1) to 50 FC or 7 days,
whichever occurs later.
Table 1 Detected Conditions
a.

sealant separation between the Z-bar and the outer glass ply,
with depth less than 4 mm (0.160 in)

b.

sealant separation between inboard retainer and inner glass


ply, with depth less than 7,5 mm (0.300 in) and cumulative
length less than 300 mm (12.000 in)

c.

and the outer ply, and separation between inboard retainer and
inner glass ply, common to the same holes location with a
length less than 225 mm (8.860 in), and not covering the entire
arc of a window corner

(3) If, during any inspection as required by paragraph (1) or (2) of this AD, any
discrepant condition, as defined in PPG SB NP-158862-001 Revision 1, is
found, before the next pressurized flight, or within 10 days after the
inspection, whichever occurs first, replace the affected window(s) in

inclusive, from MSN 1096 to 1099 inclusive and MSN 1101.

Reason:

During inspection of an aeroplane on the production line, interference was


detected between electrical harnesses (2M-2S-6M) and a bonding lead, located
in zone 214, positioned above and forward of the 120VU shelf. Subsequent
investigation revealed that the interference was a result of an incorrect
installation of the affected bonding lead.
This condition, if not detected and corrected, could lead to arcing and chafing,
possibly resulting in an uncontrolled fire.
To address this potential unsafe condition, ATR issued Service Bulletin (SB)
ATR42-92-0025 and SB ATR72-92-1034, as applicable to aeroplane model, to
provide inspection instructions.
For the reasons described above, this AD requires a one-time inspection of the
electrical harness 2M-2S-6M in zone 214 and, depending on findings,
accomplishment of corrective action(s).

Landing Gear Main Landing Gear Hinge Pin Inspection /


Replacement

Manufacturer(s):

ATR-GIE Avions de Transport Rgional (formerly Aerospatiale Aeritalia,

Applicability:

ATR 42 and ATR 72 aeroplanes, all certified models, all manufacturer serial
numbers.

Reason:

Prompted by cases of rupture of Main Landing Gear (MLG) rear hinge pin part
number (P/N) D61000 encountered in service in 1994 and 1996, DGAC France
issued AD 96-131-064 (B) for ATR 42 aeroplanes and AD 96-096-029 (B) for
ATR 72 aeroplanes to require inspection and, depending on findings, corrective
action.
Since those ADs were issued, new occurrences of cracked rear hinge pin P/N
D61000 were reported on ATR72 MLG.
The result of subsequent investigation revealed that the affected pins were
subjected to a non-detected thermal abuse done in production during grinding
process. Analysis also showed that other MLG pin P/Ns could be affected by
the same nonconformity.
This condition, if not detected and corrected, could lead to MLG structural
failure, possibly resulting in collapse of the MLG and consequently injury to the
occupants of the aeroplane.
For the reasons described above, this AD requires inspection and, depending
on findings, replacement of affected pins.

Reason:

An erroneous cockpit indication has been reported on an in-service aircraft.


Subsequent investigation identified chafed wiring between harnesses
(2M-2S-6M) and the metallic structure of the cargo lining panel above the
electronic rack 90VU shelf. The chafing was most likely the result of incorrect
harness installation. In some cases, the bracket, which supports the
harnesses, could be incorrectly positioned. Consequently, the wiring
harnesses, and in certain configurations, the adjacent air duct, could be
incorrectly routed.
This condition, if not detected and corrected, could lead to wiring harness
chafing and arcing, possibly resulting in an on-board fire.

of ground connection on the terminal block of the fuel probe, due to an incorrect
application of wiring instructions in production during fuel probe manufacturing
between June 2011 and August 2013. The investigation identified a batch of
parts, suspected to be affected by this manufacturing defect. Some of these
probes were delivered as spares, and operators may have installed these
probes on their in-service aeroplanes.
In case an affected fuel probe is installed on each wing of an aeroplane, being
not equipped with an independent fuel low level measurement system or an
aeroplane operated in accordance with ETOPS rules, the defected fuel probes
could indicate a higher fuel quantity value than the real quantity of the on-board
fuel.
This condition, if not detected and corrected, could lead to an undetected fuel
starvation and consequent dual engine in-flight flame out.
For the reasons described above, this AD requires the identification and
replacement of the affected fuel probes.
This AD is revised to correct typographical errors.

AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVE
AD No.: 2014-0144R1

Date: 10 June 2014


Note: This Airworthiness Directive (AD) is issued by EASA, acting in accordance with Regulation
(EC) No 216/2008 on behalf of the European Community, its Member States and of the
European third countries that participate in the activities of EASA under Article 66 of that
Regulation.
This AD is issued in accordance with EU 748/2012, Part 21.A.3B. In accordance with EC 2042/2003 Annex I, Part M.A.301, the
continuing airworthiness of an aircraft shall be ensured by accomplishing any applicable ADs. Consequently, no person may operate
an aircraft to which an AD applies, except in accordance with the requirements of that AD, unless otherwise specified by the Agency
[EC 2042/2003 Annex I, Part M.A.303] or agreed with the Authority of the State of Registry [EC 216/2008, Article 14(4) exemption].

Fire protection Engine Fire Extinguishing Pipe Inspection

Manufacturer(s):

ATR-GIE Avions de Transport Rgional (formerly Aerospatiale Aeritalia,


Aerospatiale Alenia, Aerospatiale ATR Alenia, EADS ATR Alenia)

Applicability:

Model ATR 42-500 aeroplanes, Manufacturer Serial Number (MSN) 859, and
MSN 1001 through 1010 inclusive.
Model ATR 72-212A aeroplanes, MSN 988 and 989; MSN 993 through 1000
inclusive, except MSN 996; and MSN 1020 through 1142 inclusive, except MSN
1071,1135, 1139, 1140 and 1141.

Reason:

Damage of an engine fire extinguishing pipe was reported on an in-service ATR


72-212A aeroplane. The damage was induced by chafing between the engine
fire extinguishing pipe and a fastener assembly installed between flap arm and
hinge flap at rib 4 during flaps extension to the 30 degrees position. The
subsequent investigation also determined that the chafing occurred as a result
of an incorrect (back to front) installation of the pipe.
This condition, if not detected and corrected, could lead to damage of the fire
extinguishing pipe, possibly generating a leak, leading to loss of available
extinguishing agent and resulting in reduced capability to extinguish an engine
fire.
To address this potential unsafe condition, ATR issued Service Bulletins (SB)
ATR42-26-0031 and ATR72-26-1027 to provide inspection instructions, as
applicable to aeroplane model.
For the reasons described above, this AD requires a one-time visual inspection
of the affected area and, depending on findings, accomplishment of applicable

TE.CAP.00110-003 European Aviation Safety Agency. All rights reserved.

Modification

Manufacturer(s):

ATR-GIE Avions de Transport Rgional (ATR), formerly Aerospatiale


Aeritalia, Aerospatiale Alenia, Aerospatiale ATR ALENIA, EADS
ATR - Alenia.

Applicability:

ATR 42-500 aeroplanes, all manufacturer serial numbers (MSN), on which ATR
Modification (mod) 6518 has been embodied in production, except those
aeroplanes on which ATR mod 7294 has been embodied in production.
ATR 72-212A aeroplanes, all MSN, on which ATR mod 6517 has been
embodied in production, except those aeroplanes on which ATR mod 7294 has
been embodied in production.
Note: ATR mod 6517 and mod 6518 install the Armonia Cabin respectively on
ATR 72-212A and ATR 42-500 aeroplane.

Reason:

Interference between a Type III Emergency Exit door opening and surrounding
passenger cabin furnishing was detected during a production check.
Subsequent investigation identified an insufficient gap between the emergency
exit door internal skin structure and the overhead stowage compartment fitting,
installed on the rail, as a cause of the interference.
This condition, if not detected and corrected, could prevent an unobstructed
opening of both Type III Emergency Exit doors in case of emergency
evacuation.
Prompted by this finding, EASA issued AD 2013-0280 to require a one-time
check of the gap between the Type III Emergency Exit door internal skin and a

relevant fitting and, depending on findings, the accomplishment of applicable


corrective action(s). That AD was considered to be a temporary measure.
Since that AD was issued, ATR developed a design solution to ensure that no
interference with surrounding structure occurs during opening of an emergency
exit. ATR Service Bulletins (SB) ATR42-25-0185, SB ATR42-25-0186, SB
ATR72-25-1148 and SB ATR72-25-1149 were issued to provide the necessary
modification instructions for in-service aeroplanes.
For the reason described above, this AD retains the requirements of EASA AD
