The Proposed Amendment Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the FAA proposes to amend 14 CFR part 39 as follows: Actions and Compliance PART 39—AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES 1. The authority citation for part 39 continues to read as follows: Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701. § 39.13 [Amended] 2.

Comments Due Date (a) We must receive comments by September 22, 2008. yshivers on PROD1PC62 with PROPOSALS Applicability (c) This AD applies to the following Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) turbofan engines with compressor air to HMU delivery tube, part number (P/N) 3119150–01 installed: (1) JT15D–5 turbofan engines, serial numbers (SNs) below and including SN PCE– 100411. (2) JT15D–5 turbofan engines, SNs below and including SN PCE–JA0818. (3) All JT15D–5B turbofan engines. (4) All JT15D–5F turbofan engines. (5) JT15D–5R turbofan engines SNs below and including SN PCE–JG0104. (6) All JT15D–5 turbofan engines converted to model JT15D–5R by incorporation of P&WC Service Bulletin No. 7605. These engines are installed on, but not limited to, Cessna models 500; 501; 550; 551; S550; 560; and 560 Ultra airplanes; Mitsubishi models 300 and 300–10 airplanes; and Hawker Beechcraft models 400; 400A; and 400T airplanes. Reason (d) Transport Canada AD CF–2008–23, dated June 27, 2008, states: There have been several reported incidents of high altitude, dual engine flameout on JT15D–5 engines powered aircraft operating in certain meteorological conditions. Subsequent to the investigation of incidents, review of the engine design has revealed that the Fuel Control Hydro Mechanical Unit (HMU) P3 servo can be exposed to excessive 15:15 Aug 21, 2008 Jkt 214001 (e) Unless already done, do the following actions. (1) Within 200 flight hours after the effective date of this AD or by December 31, 2008, whichever occurs first, remove from service compressor air to HMU delivery tube, P/N 3119150–01. (2) Install a serviceable compressor air to HMU delivery tube. (3) Tube installation in accordance with P&WC Alert Service Bulletin (ASB) No. JT15D–72–A7611, Revision 1, dated June 16, 2008, meets the requirements of this AD. Prohibition of Compressor Air to HMU Delivery Tube, P/N 3119150–01 Affected Airworthiness Directives (ADs) (b) None. VerDate Aug<31>2005 moisture and freezing. To preclude P3 servo freezing, P&WC has issued JT15D Alert Service Bulletin (ASB) JT15D–72–A7611 to re-route compressor delivery air to the HMU and improve moisture separation. Considering the potentially hazardous consequence of possible in-flight dual engine flameout, this airworthiness directive is issued to mandate the incorporation of P&WC ASB JT15D–72–A7611 to the affected JT15D– 5 engines, in order to minimize the possibility of this hazard. We are issuing this AD to prevent engine flameout, and possible dual-engine flameout events, caused by excessive moisture and freezing in the P3 servo, during certain flight conditions. (4) After the effective date of this AD, do not install any compressor air to HMU delivery tube, P/N 3119150–01, onto any engine. Definition (f) For the purpose of this AD, a serviceable compressor air to HMU delivery tube is a compressor air to HMU delivery tube that is other than the old/removed tube part number listed in this AD. (g) Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs): The Manager, Engine Certification Office, FAA, has the authority to approve AMOCs for this AD, if requested using the procedures found in 14 CFR 39.19. Previous Credit (h) Replacement of the compressor air to HMU delivery tube using P&WC ASB No. JT15D–72–A7611, dated March 26, 2008, before the effective date of this AD, meets the requirements of this AD.
