Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce plc Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2018-17405
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-08-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2017-03- 02, which applies to certain Rolls-Royce plc (RR) RB211 Trent 768-60, 772-60, and 772B-60 turbofan engines. AD 2017-03-02 requires initial and repetitive ultrasonic inspections (UIs) of the affected low- pressure (LP) compressor blades. Since we issued AD 2017-03-02, RR issued revised service information to reduce the inspection threshold for UIs of the affected blades. This proposed AD would retain the UIs in AD 2017-03-02 while reducing the inspection threshold. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-08-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Rolls-Royce plc (RR) Trent 1000-A2, Trent 1000-C2, Trent 1000-D2, Trent 1000-E2, Trent 1000-G2, Trent 1000-H2, Trent 1000-J2, Trent 1000-K2, and Trent 1000-L2 turbofan engine models. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of intermediate-pressure compressor (IPC) rotor seal failures. This proposed AD would require initial and repetitive on-wing borescope inspections (BSI) of affected IPC rotor seals, and removing any cracked parts from service. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Helicopters
Document Number: 2018-16638
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-08-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Airbus Helicopters Model EC225LP helicopters. This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections of each life raft inflation cylinder percussion system bellcrank (bellcrank). This proposed AD is prompted by reports of jammed bellcranks. The actions of this proposed AD are intended to prevent an unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-16504
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-08-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus SAS Model A318-111 and -112 airplanes, Model A319-111, -112, - 113, -114, and -115 airplanes, Model A320-211, -212, -214, and -216 airplanes, and Model A321-111, -112, -211, -212, and -213 airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report of a production quality deficiency on the inner retainer installed on link assemblies of the aft engine mount, which could result in failure of the retainer. This AD requires modifying and re-identifying the aft engine mount assemblies. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Notice of Release From Federal Surplus Property and Grant Assurance Obligations at Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL), Honolulu, Hawaii
Document Number: 2018-16971
Type: Notice
Date: 2018-08-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes to rule and invites public comment on the application for a release of approximately 9.34 acres of airport property at the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL), Honolulu, Hawaii from all federal obligations contained in the Quitclaim Deed, dated April 18, 2000, and Grant Assurances because the portion of land is not needed for airport purposes. The land requested to be released is located approximately one mile east of the airport completely separated by a lagoon and the Sand Island Access Road, a major public roadway. The release will allow the State of Hawaii (State) to transfer the property from the State Airports Division at fair market value to the State Highways and Harbors Divisions, thereby benefiting the Airport and serving the interest of civil aviation. The proposed use of the land after the transfer of jurisdiction will be compatible with the airport and will not interfere with the airport or its operation.
