Standard Instrument Approach Procedures; Miscellaneous Amendments
Document Number: 05-10606
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-05-31
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This amendment establishes, amends, suspends, or revokes Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) for operations at certain airports. These regulatory actions are needed because of the adoption of new or revised criteria, or because of changes occurring in the National Airspace System, such as the commissioning of new navigational facilities, addition of new obstacles, or changes in air traffic requirements. These changes are designed to provide safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace and to promote safe flight operations under instrument flight rules at the affected airports.
Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce plc RB211 Trent 800 Series Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 05-10635
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-05-27
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to supersede an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for Rolls-Royce plc (RR) models RB211 Trent 875-17, Trent 877-17, Trent 884-17, Trent 884B-17, Trent 892-17, Trent 892B-17, and Trent 895-17 turbofan engines with low pressure (LP) compressor fan blades, part number (P/N) FW18548 installed. That AD currently requires LP compressor fan blade replacement with new or previously reworked blades, or rework of the existing LP compressor fan blades. This proposed AD would require the same actions but at reduced compliance times for certain airplane and engine rating combinations and certain maximum gross weight limits. This proposed AD results from a number of new production LP compressor blades found with surfaces formed outside of design intent. We are proposing this AD to prevent possible multiple uncontained LP compressor fan blade failure, due to cracking in the blade root caused by increased stresses in the shear key slots.
Airworthiness Directives; Turbomeca S.A. Arrius Models 2B, 2B1, and 2F Turboshaft Engines
Document Number: 05-10634
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-05-27
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to revise an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for Turbomeca S.A. Arrius Models 2B, 2B1, and 2F turboshaft engines. That AD currently requires replacing the right injector half manifold, left injector half manifold, and privilege injector pipe. This proposed AD would require the same actions, but relaxes the compliance time for the repetitive replacements on Arrius 2F engines. This proposed AD results from Turbomeca relaxing the repetitive replacement interval for Arrius 2F engine fuel nozzles based on review of returned fuel nozzles to Turbomeca. We are proposing this AD to prevent engine flameout during rapid deceleration, or the inability to maintain the 2.5 minutes one engine inoperative (OEI) rating, and to prevent air path cracks due to blockage of the fuel injection manifolds.

Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier Model CL-600-1A11 (CL-600), CL-600-2A12 (CL-601), and CL-600-2B16 (CL-601-3A, CL-601-3R, and CL-604) Airplanes Modified by Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) SA4900SW
Document Number: 05-10536
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-05-27
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier Model CL-600-1A11 (CL-600), CL-600-2A12 (CL-601), and CL-600-2B16 (CL-601-3A, CL-601-3R, and CL-604) airplanes modified by STC SA4900SW. This AD requires revising the airplane flight manual (AFM) to require repetitive visual checks of the microphone jack assemblies on both control columns to detect damage that may interfere with movement of the control column. This AD also requires modification of the microphone jack assembly, related investigative actions, and corrective actions if necessary, which allows the AFM revision to be removed from the AFM. This AD is prompted by a report of a rejected take-off and subsequent runway overrun due to restricted movement of the co-pilot's control column, which resulted in collapse of the nose landing gear and consequent damage of the forward fuselage. We are issuing this AD to prevent a damaged microphone jack assembly from interfering with movement of the control column, which could result in loss of control of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 767-200, -300, and -300F Series Airplanes
Document Number: 05-10433
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-05-27
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD), which applies to certain Boeing Model 767-200, -300, and -300F series airplanes. That AD currently requires inspections for fatigue cracking of the horizontal stabilizer pivot bulkhead, and repetitive inspections or other follow-on actions. That action also provides a permanent repair, which is optional for airplanes with no cracks, and, if accomplished, ends the repetitive inspections. For airplanes on which the permanent repair is not installed, this new AD requires repetitive inspections of the same and additional inspection locations at new inspection intervals; a one-time torque test; and related investigative and corrective actions. For airplanes on which the permanent repair is installed, this new AD would require repetitive inspections of the repaired area and, if necessary, corrective action. This AD is prompted by reports of loose tension bolts and crack indications in the fuselage skin. We are issuing this AD to find and fix fatigue cracking of the horizontal stabilizer pivot bulkhead and adjacent structure, which could result in loss of the horizontal stabilizer.
Airworthiness Directives; McDonnell Douglas Model 717-200 Airplanes
Document Number: 05-10428
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-05-27
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain McDonnell Douglas Model 717-200 airplanes. This AD requires replacing eight brake fuses of the hydraulic quantity limiter with new or modified and reidentified fuses. This AD is prompted by reports indicating that brake fuses of the hydraulic quantity limiter of the main landing gear have failed. We are issuing this AD to prevent loss of both hydraulic and brake systems if one fuse on each hydraulic system were to fail simultaneously, and consequent reduced controllability of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Turbomeca S.A. Arrius 1A Turboshaft Engines
Document Number: 05-10295
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-05-27
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Turbomeca S.A. Arrius 1A turboshaft engines.

Date: 2005-05-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all EMBRAER Model EMB-110P1 and EMB-110P2 airplanes. This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections for corrosion or cracking of the rotating cylinder assembly in the nose landing gear (NLG), and related investigative/corrective actions if necessary. This proposed AD would also require the eventual replacement of the rotating cylinder assembly with a new part, which terminates the need for the repetitive inspections. This proposed AD is prompted by reports of corrosion on the NLG rotating cylinder assembly. We are proposing this AD to prevent cracks from emanating from corrosion pits in the NLG rotating cylinder assembly, which could result in failure of the NLG.

The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Boeing Model 747-200C and 747-200F series airplanes. This AD requires repetitive inspections for cracking of the left and right C-3 frame upper closure fittings of the nose cargo door, and corrective actions if necessary. This AD also provides an optional modification that, if done, terminates inspections in certain areas. This AD is prompted by reports indicating that fatigue cracking was found in the inboard flange above the flight deck floor on the C-3 frame upper closure fittings of the nose cargo door. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct cracking of the C-3 frame upper closure fittings, which could extend and result in rapid depressurization of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; AeroSpace Technologies of Australia Pty Ltd. Models N22B, N22S, and N24A Airplanes
Document Number: 05-9976
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-05-23
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA adopts a new airworthiness directive (AD) to supersede AD 2003-14-20, which applies to all AeroSpace Technologies of Australia Pty Ltd. (ASTA) Models N22B and N24A airplanes. AD 2003-14-20 requires you to repetitively inspect, using either dye penetrant or magnetic particle methods, the rudder control lever shafts for cracks; inspect (one-time) all lever shaft side plates by measuring the thickness; and if cracks or discrepancies in thickness are found, replace unserviceable parts with new or serviceable parts. Since AD 2003-14-20 was issued, we determined that the AD should also affect Model N22S airplanes. The manufacturer has also revised the service information to include a rudder control lever shaft part number (P/N) that was not part of AD 2003-14-20. Consequently, this AD retains the actions of AD 2003-14-20, adds Model N22S airplanes to the applicability, and adds rudder control lever shaft P/N 1/N-45-1102 to the inspection requirements. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct cracks in the rudder control lever torque shafts and discrepancies in the thickness of the lever shaft side plates, which could result in failure of the rudder control lever torque shaft. Such failure could lead to reduced controllability of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; DG Flugzeugbau GmbH Model DG-500MB Sailplanes and Glaser-Dirks Flugzeugbau GmbH Model DG-800B Sailplanes
Document Number: 05-9975
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-05-23
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA adopts a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all DG Flugzeugbau GmbH Model DG-500MB sailplanes equipped with a Solo engine and Glaser-Dirks Flugzeugbau GmbH Model DG-800B sailplanes equipped with a Solo engine. This AD requires you to inspect the propeller for damage, specifically foam core separation, and replace any damaged propeller. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by the airworthiness authority for Germany. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct damage to the propeller, which could result in failure of the propeller to perform properly. This failure could lead to reduced or loss of control of the sailplane.
