Federal Aviation Administration June 15, 2012 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; PIAGGIO AERO INDUSTRIES S.p.A Airplanes
Document Number: 2012-14723
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2012-06-15
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for PIAGGIO AERO INDUSTRIES S.p.A. Model P-180 airplanes. This proposed AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as jamming of the external bearing of the screwjack drive gear, which resulted in failure of the main wing outboard flap external actuator. We are issuing this proposed AD to require actions to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Diamond Aircraft Industries GmbH Airplanes
Document Number: 2012-14705
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2012-06-15
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Diamond Aircraft Industries GmbH Models DA 42, DA 42 NG, and DA 42 M-NG airplanes. This proposed AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as excessive voids in the adhesive joint between the center wing spars and the upper center wing skins. This condition could cause the wing to fail, which could result in loss of control of the airplane. We are issuing this proposed AD to require actions to address the unsafe condition on these products.
