Airworthiness Directives; Empresa Brasileira de Aeronautica S.A. (EMBRAER) Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-21059
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-09-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Empresa Brasileira de Aeronautica S.A. (EMBRAER) Model EMB -135ER, - 135KE, -135KL, -135LR, -145, -145ER, -145MR, -145LR, -145XR, -145MP, and -145EP airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by our determination of the need to revise the airplane airworthiness limitations to the pylon and fuselage. This proposed AD would require revising the maintenance or inspection program. We are proposing this AD to prevent fatigue cracking of various structural elements, which could affect the structural integrity of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-21055
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-09-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2007-22- 10, for all Airbus Model A330-200, A330-300, A340-200, A340-300, A340- 500, and A340-600 series airplanes. AD 2007-22-10 currently requires repetitive inspections of the left-hand and right-hand wing main landing gear (MLG) rib 6 aft bearing lugs (forward and aft) to detect any cracking, and replacement if necessary. Since we issued AD 2007-22- 10, we have received reports of additional cracking of the MLG rib 6 aft bearing forward lug. This proposed AD would expand the applicability and reduce certain compliance times. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct cracking of the MLG rib 6 aft bearing lugs, which could result in collapse of the MLG upon landing.
Airworthiness Directives; Dassault Aviation Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-21037
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-09-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2011-16-01 for all Dassault Aviation Model FALCON 7X airplanes. AD 2011-16-01 required adding an automatic reversion logic and a means for the pilot to override pitch trim control normal modes, and installing placards in the cockpit; replacing the frame of the emergency switch box; replacing certain horizontal stabilizer electronic control units (HSECU); revising the Limitations section of the airplane flight manual (AFM); and revising the maintenance program to incorporate a certain task. This new AD requires modifying the fly-by-wire (FBW) standard; and operational testing of the electric motors reversion relays and trim emergency command of the horizontal stabilizer trim system (HSTS), and repairs if necessary. This AD was prompted by an uncontrolled pitch trim runaway during descent. We are issuing this AD to prevent an uncontrolled pitch trim runaway, which could result in loss of control of the airplane.
