Airworthiness Directives; Engine Components Inc. (ECi) Reciprocating Engine Cylinder Assemblies
Document Number: 05-17893
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-09-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Lycoming Engines (formerly Textron Lycoming) models 320, 360, and 540 series, ``Parallel Valve'' reciprocating engines, with certain Engine Components Inc. (ECi) cylinder assemblies, part number (P/N) AEL65102 series ``Classic Cast,'' installed. This proposed AD would require replacing these ECi cylinder assemblies. This proposed AD results from reports of about 30 failures of the subject cylinder assemblies marketed by ECi. We are proposing this AD to prevent loss of engine power due to cracks in the cylinder assemblies and possible engine failure caused by separation of a cylinder head.

State Court Decision Affecting Recordation of Artisan Liens
Document Number: 05-17835
Type: Notice
Date: 2005-09-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
Consistent with Agency policy, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) gives notice of the holding in Creation Aviation, Inc., vs. Textron Financial Corporation, Florida District Court of Appeal, Fourth District, No. 4D04-2178, decided on April 27, 2005. The Court in Creston held that Federal law pertaining to recording with the FAA Aircraft Registry did not preempt a Florida statute requiring that an artisan lien for work on an aircraft first be filed in the county where the work was performed in order to enforce the lien under Florida law. Accordingly, the FAA is advising the public that recording an artisan lien with the FAA Aircraft Registry only, may be insufficient to enforce an artisan lien under Florida law.

Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier Model DHC-8-400 Series Airplanes
Document Number: 05-17779
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-09-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier Model DHC-8-400 series airplanes. This AD requires a one-time inspection of the fuel and hydraulic tubes, and corrective actions if necessary. This AD also requires modifying fairlead plate assemblies. This AD results from reports of chafing between fuel and hydraulic tubes and the fairlead plate where the tubes pass through the firewall. We are issuing this AD to prevent chafing of the fuel and hydraulic tubes, which could lead to fuel and/or hydraulic fluid leakage in the engine nacelle area and consequent fire or explosion.
Airworthiness Directives; Goodrich De-icing and Specialty Systems “FASTprop” Propeller De-icers
Document Number: 05-17773
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-09-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Goodrich De-icing and Specialty Systems ``FASTprop'' propeller de- icers, part numbers P4E1188 series, P4E1601 series, P4E2200 series, P4E2271-10, P4E2575-7, P4E2575-10, P4E2598-10, P5855BSW, P6199SW, P6592SW, P6662SW, and P6975-11, installed. This AD requires inspection, repair, or replacement of those ``FASTprop'' propeller de-icers that fail daily visual checks. This AD results from reports of Goodrich ``FASTprop'' propeller de-icers becoming loose or debonded, and detaching from propeller blades during operation.
Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 757 Airplanes
Document Number: 05-17772
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-09-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Boeing Model 757 airplanes. This AD requires inspections of certain wire bundles in the left and right engine-to-wing aft fairings for discrepancies; installation of back-to-back p-clamps between the wire and hydraulic supply tube at the aft end of the right-hand strut only; and associated re-routing of the wire bundles, if necessary. This AD results from a report indicating that a circuit breaker for the fuel shutoff valve tripped due to a wire that chafed against the structure in the flammable leakage zone of the aft fairing, causing a short circuit. We are issuing this AD to prevent chafing between the wire bundle and the structure of the aft fairing, which could result in electrical arcing and subsequent ignition of flammable vapors and possible uncontrollable fire.
Airworthiness Directives; Fokker Model F27 Mark 200, 400, 500, and 600 Airplanes
Document Number: 05-17771
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-09-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Fokker Model F27 Mark 200, 400, 500, and 600 airplanes. This AD requires a general visual inspection of the rotary knobs for the fuel tank isolation valves to determine if the seal wire has been installed correctly, and corrective actions if necessary. This AD results from investigation of a recent accident, which found that the rotary knobs controlling the fuel tank isolating valves had been in the shut position. We are issuing this AD to ensure that the rotary knobs are not inadvertently moved to the shut position, which could result in fuel starvation to both engines and consequent inability to maintain controlled flight and landing.
Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 777 Airplanes
Document Number: 05-17762
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-09-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This document publishes in the Federal Register an amendment adopting airworthiness directive (AD) 2005-18-51 that was sent previously to all known U.S. owners and operators of Boeing Model 777 airplanes by individual notices. This AD supersedes an existing AD that applies to certain Boeing Model 777-200 and ``300 series airplanes. The existing AD currently requires modification of the operational program software (OPS) of the air data inertial reference unit (ADIRU). This new AD requires installing a certain OPS in the ADIRU, and revising the airplane flight manual to provide the flightcrew with operating instructions for possible ADIRU heading errors and for potential incorrect display of drift angle. This AD results from a recent report of a significant nose-up pitch event. We are issuing this AD to prevent the OPS from using data from faulted (failed) sensors, which could result in anomalies of the fly-by-wire primary flight control, autopilot, auto-throttle, pilot display, and auto-brake systems. These anomalies could result in high pilot workload, deviation from the intended flight path, and possible loss of control of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Hartzell Propeller Inc. Propellers
Document Number: 05-17667
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-09-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Hartzell Propeller Inc. propellers. This AD requires inspecting the propeller blades and other critical propeller parts for corrosion and mechanical damage. This AD results from two events where a ``Z- shank'' blade failed and separated and the results of teardown inspections that detected corrosion in the blade bore. We are issuing this AD to detect corrosion and mechanical damage that can cause failure of a propeller, which could result in loss of control of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Avions Marcel Dassault-Breguet Model Falcon 10 Airplanes
Document Number: 05-17598
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-09-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to all Dassault Model Falcon 10 series airplanes. The existing AD currently requires revising the airplane flight manual (AFM) and installing a placard in the flight deck to prohibit flight into known or forecasted icing conditions. In lieu of the AFM revision and placard installation, that AD allows identifying the part number of each flexible hose in the wing (slat) anti-icing system, performing repetitive inspections of each hose for delamination, and performing corrective actions if necessary. This AD adds the following actions (also in lieu of the AFM revision and placard installation): New repetitive inspections for delamination at reduced intervals, corrective actions if necessary, and an additional AFM revision to include a statement to track flight cycles when the slat anti-icing system is activated. This AD also provides an option to repetitively replace the existing flexible hoses with improved flexible hoses, which terminates the repetitive inspection requirements. This AD results from a report of in-service delamination of a flexible hose in the slat anti-icing system at a time earlier than previously reported. We are issuing this AD to prevent collapse of the flexible hoses in the slat anti-icing system, which could lead to insufficient anti-icing capability and, if icing is encountered in this situation, could result in reduced controllability of the airplane.
