Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Helicopters, Inc. (Previously Eurocopter France) Helicopters
Document Number: 2014-21921
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-09-15
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Airbus Helicopters, Inc. (previously Eurocopter France) Model AS355E, AS355F, AS355F1, and AS355F2 helicopters with a Fueltron flowmeter installed. This proposed AD would require removing each flowmeter, replacing the fuel system hoses, and disabling the electrical connections for the flowmeter installation. This proposed AD is prompted by a report of particle contamination creating an obstruction in a flowmeter which resulted in an uncontrolled flame-out of the engine. The proposed actions are intended to prevent obstruction of the fuel supply to the flowmeter, which could result in engine flame-out and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.
Airworthiness Directives; Bell Helicopter Textron Canada (Bell) Helicopters
Document Number: 2014-21919
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-09-15
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede airworthiness directive (AD) 2001-13- 51 for Bell Model 206L-4, 407, and 427 helicopters. AD 2001-13-51 currently requires inspecting certain driveshafts for a crack, a loose bolt or nut, or red powder residue and replacing a driveshaft if there is a crack, a loose bolt or nut, or red powder residue. AD 2001-13-51 also requires notifying the FAA within 10 days if a crack is found in the driveshaft. Since we issued AD 2001-13-51, the Model 429 helicopter has been certificated, and the reporting requirement is no longer necessary. This proposed AD would retain the inspection requirement of AD 2001-13-51, expand the applicability to include the Model 429 helicopter, and remove the reporting requirement. These proposed actions are intended to prevent failure of a driveshaft, loss of drive to the main rotor system, and a subsequent emergency landing.

Airworthiness Directives; Rockwell Collins, Inc. Transponders
Document Number: 2014-21027
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-09-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Rockwell Collins TDR-94 and TDR-94D Mode select (S) transponders that are installed on airplanes. This AD was prompted by instances where the TDR-94 and TDR-94D Mode S transponders did not properly respond to Mode S Only All-Call interrogations when the airplane transitioned from a ground to airborne state. This AD requires inspecting the setting of the airplane type code category strapping and requires either modifying the airplane type code category setting or installing the software upgrade to convert the affected transponders to the new part number. We are issuing this AD to correct the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Gulfstream Aerospace LP (Type Certificate Previously Held by Israel Aircraft Industries, Ltd.) Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-18311
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-09-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2013-03-23 for all Gulfstream Aerospace LP (Type Certificate previously held by Israel Aircraft Industries, Ltd.) Model Gulfstream G150 airplanes. AD 2013-03- 23 required revising the airplane flight manual (AFM) to include procedures to advise the flightcrew of certain runway slope and anti- ice corrections and takeoff distance values. This new AD requires revising the Performance section of the AFM, which includes the revised procedures. This AD was prompted by the issuance of a revision to the AFM, which modifies runway slope and anti-ice corrections to both V1 and takeoff distance values. We are issuing this AD to prevent the use of published, non-conservative data, which could result in the inability to meet the required takeoff performance, with a consequent hazard to safe operation during performance-limited takeoff operations.
Special Conditions: Airbus Model A350-900 Airplane; Lightning Protection of Fuel-Tank Structure To Prevent Fuel-Tank Vapor Ignition
Document Number: 2014-21245
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-09-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These special conditions are issued for Airbus Model A350-900 airplanes. These airplanes will have a novel or unusual design feature that will incorporate a nitrogen generation system (NGS) for all fuel tanks, to actively reduce flammability exposure within the fuel tanks significantly below that required by the fuel-tank flammability regulations. Among other benefits, the NGS significantly reduces the potential for fuel-vapor ignition caused by lightning strikes. The applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for this design feature. These special conditions contain the additional safety standards that the Administrator considers necessary to establish a level of safety equivalent to that established by the existing airworthiness standards.
