Final rule; correction.


The FAA is correcting a typographical error in an existing airworthiness directive (AD) that was published in the Federal Register on March 24, 2009 (74 FR 12247). The error resulted in publication of an incorrect AD number. This AD applies to certain Airbus Model A318, A319, A320, and A321 airplanes. This AD requires the installation of improved cockpit door latch/striker assemblies.


Effective April 28, 2009.

On March 12, 2009, the FAA issued AD 2009-06-22, amendment 39-15859 (74 FR 12247, March 24, 2009), for certain Airbus Model A318, A319, A320, and A321 airplanes. The AD requires the installation of improved cockpit door latch/striker assemblies.

As published, that final rule incorrectly specified the AD number in a single location in the AD as “2009-09-22” instead of “2009-06-22.”

No other part of the regulatory information has been changed; therefore, the final rule is not republished in the Federal Register.

The effective date of this AD remains April 28, 2009.
