Federal Aviation Administration July 19, 2005 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A330-200, A330-300, A340-200, and A340-300 Series Airplanes
Document Number: 05-14172
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-07-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model A330-200, A330-300, A340-200, and A340-300 series airplanes. This proposed AD would require operators to modify the hydraulic control block of the nose landing gear. This proposed AD is prompted by a report of an unexpected steering event (swerve) during the take-off roll of one affected airplane. We are proposing this AD to prevent loss of airplane steering while on the ground, which could result in the airplane going off the side of the runway.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A320-111 Airplanes, and Model A320-200 Series Airplanes
Document Number: 05-14171
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-07-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model A320-111 airplanes, and Model A320-200 series airplanes. This proposed AD would require installing a bonding strip between each of the two water scavenge jet pumps of the center fuel tank and the rear spar in section 21. This proposed AD is prompted by the results of fuel system reviews conducted by the manufacturer. We are proposing this AD to prevent an ignition source for fuel vapor in the wing, which could result in fire or explosion in the center wing fuel tank.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A320-111 Airplanes; and Model A320-200, A321-100, and A321-200 Series Airplanes

The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model A320-111 airplanes; and Model A320-200, A321- 100, and A321-200 series airplanes. This proposed AD would require installing a bonding lead between the low pressure valve and the adjacent pipe assembly in each wing. This proposed AD is prompted by the results of fuel system reviews conducted by the manufacturer. We are proposing this AD to prevent an ignition source for fuel vapor in the wing, which could result in fire or explosion in the adjacent wing fuel tank.
