Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce Deutschland Ltd & Co KG Turbofan Engines

This proposed AD would require removing the pawl carrier pivot pins, part number (P/N) BRR17117, from service and replacing them with parts eligible for installation. We are proposing this AD to prevent failure of the fuel shut-off mechanism, uncontained part release, damage to the engine, and damage to the airplane.

This proposed AD was prompted by reports of multiple cracks in the steel horizontal tube of the cockpit control column.

We are proposing this AD to correct the unsafe condition on these products.
