Notice of Industry Meeting
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is hosting a public meeting for the Aircraft Access to System Wide Information Management (AAtS) Phase 2 Working Group. The Working Group Meeting will be a forum for discussions regarding the operational needs for a capability such as AAtS. This meeting is not a precursor to a request for proposal (RFP) or request for offer (RFO). The FAA is not seeking or accepting unsolicited proposals.
Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce plc Turbofan Engines
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Rolls-Royce plc (RR) Trent 1000-A, 1000-C, 1000-D, 1000-E, 1000-G, and 1000-H turbofan engines. This AD requires removing engine electronic controller (EEC) software earlier than standard MB6.15 and replacing with a software standard eligible for installation. This AD was prompted by a finding that an intermediate pressure (IP) shaft failure may not be detected by EEC software earlier than standard MB6.15. We are issuing this AD to detect IP shaft failure and prevent IP compressor turbine burst, uncontained engine failure, and damage to the airplane.
