Airworthiness Directives; Dowty Propellers Type R321/4-82-F/8, R324/4-82-F/9, R333/4-82-F/12, and R334/4-82-F/13 Propeller Assemblies
Document Number: 05-23826
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-12-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for Dowty Propellers Type R321/4-82-F/8, R324/4-82-F/9, R333/4-82- F/12, and R334/4-82-F/13 propeller assemblies. That AD currently requires initial and repetitive ultrasonic inspections of propeller hubs, part number (P/N) 660709201. This AD requires the same initial and repetitive ultrasonic inspections, but makes some needed corrections. This AD results from comments received on AD 2005-20-12. We are issuing this AD to prevent propeller hub failure due to cracks in the hub, which could result in loss of control of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Fokker Model F27 Mark 050 Airplanes
Document Number: 05-23779
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-12-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD), which applies to all Fokker Model F27 Mark 050 series airplanes. The existing AD currently requires using a torque wrench to repetitively tighten the screws for the attachment of the leading edges of the elevators, rudder, and ailerons. This new AD requires the same actions as those of the existing AD, but with reductions in the intervals for repetitive actions. This AD also requires modifying the elevator, rudder, and aileron leading edge attachments with additional locking devices. This AD results from a report of an in-flight vibration caused by a loose leading edge section of the elevator. We are issuing this AD to prevent binding of the flight controls caused by loose attachment screws, which could result in reduced controllability of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Raytheon Aircraft Company, Model 390, Premier 1 Airplanes
Document Number: 05-23773
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-12-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA adopts a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Raytheon Aircraft Company (Raytheon), Model 390, Premier 1 airplanes. For certain airplanes, this AD requires you (unless already done) to replace the plastic cover over the air conditioning motor module with a metallic cover and modify the air conditioning compressor motor module electromagnetic interference-radio frequency interference (EMI-RFI) filter located under the cover and reidentify the module part number. For all airplanes, the AD limits future installations of the cover for the air conditioner and the air conditioning compressor motor module. This AD results from reports that the plastic cover over the air conditioning motor module was found melted or burned and that the overheating of the EMI-RFI filter assembly located under the cover caused this damage. We are issuing this AD to prevent the melting or burning of the plastic cover. The burning of the plastic cover could result in a fire.

Type: Rule
Date: 2005-12-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA adopts a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Shadin ADC-2000 air data computers (ADC) installed on airplanes. This AD requires you to replace affected ADC-2000 units with a modified unit. This AD results from reports that certain ADC-2000 units display incorrect altitude information on the Electronic Flight Information System (EFIS) to the pilot. We are issuing this AD to prevent ADC-2000 units, part numbers (P/Ns) 962830A-1-S-8, 962830A-2-S-8, and 962830A-3- S-8, configurations B, C, and D, from displaying incorrect altitude information. This could cause the flight crew to react to this incorrect flight information and possibly result in an unsafe operating condition.

Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 747-400 Series Airplanes
Document Number: 05-23833
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-12-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Boeing Model 747-400 series airplanes. This proposed AD would require inspecting the support bracket of the crew oxygen cylinder installation to determine the manufacturing date marked on the support, and performing corrective action if necessary. This proposed AD results from a report indicating that certain oxygen cylinder supports may not have been properly heat-treated. We are proposing this AD to prevent failure of the oxygen cylinder support under the most critical flight load conditions, which could cause the oxygen cylinder to come loose and leak oxygen. Leakage of oxygen could result in oxygen being unavailable for the flightcrew or could result in a fire hazard in the vicinity of the leakage.
Airworthiness Directives; Gulfstream Model GV-SP Series Airplanes
Document Number: 05-23832
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-12-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Gulfstream Model GV-SP series airplanes. This proposed AD would require an inspection to determine the serial number of the anti- skid control unit (ACU) in the right electronics equipment rack, and replacement of the ACU with a new or serviceable ACU if necessary. This proposed AD results from a report that an airplane temporarily lost normal braking function during landing rollout on a pre-delivery flight. We are proposing this AD to prevent loss of normal braking function, which could result in a runway overrun that could cause injury to flightcrew or passengers or damage to the airplane.

Airworthiness Directives; BAE Systems (Operations) Limited Model BAe 146 Airplanes and Model Avro 146-RJ Airplanes
Document Number: 05-23778
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-12-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all BAE Systems (Operations) Limited Model BAe 146 airplanes and Model Avro 146-RJ airplanes. This proposed AD would require repetitive replacement of the elevator servo tab hinge bearings, elevator servo tab mechanism bearings, elevator trim tab hinge bearings, and elevator trim tab drive rod bearings with new bearings. This proposed AD results from reported incidents of flight control surface restrictions due to the deterioration of flight control surface bearings. We are proposing this AD to prevent corrosion of flight control surface bearings and freezing of moisture inside the bearings, due to loss of lubrication in the bearings, which could lead to flight control restrictions and result in reduced controllability of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 757 Series Airplanes
Document Number: 05-23777
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-12-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to supersede an existing airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to certain Boeing Model 757 series airplanes. The existing AD currently requires revising the Airworthiness Limitations Section of the maintenance manual (757 Airworthiness Limitations Instructions (ALI)) to incorporate certain inspections and compliance times to detect fatigue cracking of principal structural elements (PSEs). This proposed AD would require incorporating a new revision to the Airworthiness Limitations section of the Instructions of Continued Airworthiness to mandate certain repetitive inspections for fatigue cracking of PSEs. This proposed AD also would add airplanes to the applicability in the existing AD. This proposed AD results from a new revision to the ALI. We are proposing this AD to ensure that fatigue cracking of various PSEs is detected and corrected; such fatigue cracking could adversely affect the structural integrity of these airplanes.
Airworthiness Directives; BAE Systems (Operations) Limited Model BAe 146 and Avro 146-RJ Airplanes
Document Number: 05-23776
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-12-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This document revises an earlier proposed airworthiness directive (AD), applicable to all BAE Systems (Operations) Limited Model BAe 146 and Avro 146-RJ airplanes, that would have required installation of a linear fluid-filled damper between each elevator surface and the airplane structure on both the left and right sides of the airplane, along with related structural and system modifications. This new action revises the proposed rule by updating and adding service information, and changing the compliance time. The actions specified by this new proposed AD are intended to prevent pitch oscillation (vertical bouncing) of the fuselage due to excessive ice buildup on the elevator servo tab, and consequent reduced controllability of the airplane. This action is intended to address the identified unsafe condition.
Airworthiness Directives; Cirrus Design Corporation Model SR20 and SR22 Airplanes
Document Number: 05-23772
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-12-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Cirrus Design Corporation (CDC) Model SR20 and SR22 airplanes. This proposed AD would require you to inspect the fuel line and wire bundles for any chafing damage; if any chafing damage is found, replace any damaged fuel line and repair any damaged wires or sheathing of the wire harness; and install the forward loop clamp, fuel line shield, aft loop clamp, and anti-chafe tubing. This proposed AD results from reports of fuel line leaks resulting from wire chafing on the fuel lines. We are issuing this proposed AD to detect and correct damage to the fuel line and wire bundles, which could result in fuel leaks. This failure could lead to unsafe fuel vapor within the cockpit and possible fire.
Airworthiness Directives; Hamilton Sundstrand Model 14RF-19 Propellers
Document Number: 05-23770
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-12-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Hamilton Sundstrand (formerly Hamilton Standard Division of United Technologies Corporation) Model 14RF-19 propellers. This proposed AD would require replacing certain actuator yokes with improved actuator yokes. This proposed AD results from certain propeller system actuator yoke arms breaking during flight. We are proposing this AD to prevent actuator yoke arms breaking during flight, which could cause high propeller vibration, requiring the pilot to feather the propeller, and could contribute to reduced controllability of the airplane.

The exemptions will enable these individuals to qualify as drivers of commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) in interstate commerce without meeting the vision standard in one eye for various reasons, including amblyopia, macular and retinal scars, and loss of an eye due to trauma.
Airworthiness Directives; McDonnell Douglas Model DC-9-10, DC-9-20, DC-9-30, DC-9-40, and DC-9-50 Series Airplanes
Document Number: 05-23655

The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain McDonnell Douglas Model DC-9-10, DC-9-20, DC-9-30, DC-9-40, and DC-9-50 series airplanes. This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections for stress corrosion cracks of the main fuselage frame, and corrective actions if necessary. This proposed AD also would provide an optional terminating action for the repetitive inspections. This proposed AD results from several reports of cracking of the main fuselage frame. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct stress corrosion cracking of the main fuselage frame, which could result in extensive damage to adjacent structure, and reduced structural integrity of the airplane.
