Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce plc Turbofan Engines
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Rolls-Royce plc (RR) models RB211 Trent 768-60, 772-60, and 772B-60 turbofan engines. This proposed AD was prompted by low-pressure (LP) compressor blade partial airfoil release events. This proposed AD would require a one-time ultrasonic C-scan inspection of LP compressor blades that had accumulated more than 2,500 flight cycles since new. We are proposing this AD to prevent LP compressor blade airfoil separations, engine damage, and damage to the airplane.
Amendment of Class E Airspace; Lincoln, ME
This action amends Class E Airspace at Lincoln, ME, as the Lincoln Non-Directional Beacon (NDB) has been decommissioned and new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures have been developed at Lincoln Regional Airport. This action enhances the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport.
Airworthiness Directives; Turbomeca S.A. Turboshaft Engines
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Turbomeca S.A. Arriel 2D turboshaft engines. This AD was prompted by a low fuel pressure event caused by deterioration and a loss of the low- pressure drive function within the hydro-mechanical metering unit (HMU). This AD requires replacing the HMU at a reduced life. We are issuing this AD to prevent an uncommanded in-flight shutdown of the engine, and possible loss of the helicopter.
Amendment of Class E Airspace; Ontonagon, MI
This action amends Class E airspace at Ontonagon, MI. Additional controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate new Area Navigation (RNAV) Standard Instrument Approach Procedures at Ontonagon CountySchuster Field Airport. Also, this action renames the airport. The FAA is taking this action to enhance the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rule (IFR) operations at the airport.
