Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-10140
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-05-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model A300 B4-600, B4-600R, and F4-600R series airplanes, and Model A300 C4-605R Variant F airplanes (collectively called Model A300-600 series airplanes); and Model A310 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by cracking in the door sill area of the aft cargo door. This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections of the aft cargo door lower torsion box area, and corrective actions if necessary. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Saab AB, Saab Aeronautics (Formerly Known as Saab AB, Saab Aerosystems) Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-10139
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-05-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Saab AB, Saab Aeronautics Model 340A (SAAB/SF340A) airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by the discovery of circuit breakers of unsuitable strength that fail to protect the system from overcurrent. This proposed AD would require replacing certain circuit breakers. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-10138
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-05-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model A319 series airplanes; Model A320-211, -212, -214, -231, -232, and -233, airplanes; and Model A321-111, -112, -131, -211, -212, -213, -231, and -232 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of cracks on frame forks and outer skin on the forward and aft cargo compartment doors. This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections of the frame forks, and corrective actions if necessary. This proposed AD would also include optional modifications that constitute terminating action. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-10137
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-05-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model CL-600-2B16 (CL-601-3A, CL-601-3R, and CL-604 Variants) airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report indicating that the lanyard length of the passenger drop down oxygen masks is too long. This proposed AD would require replacing the existing oxygen mask lanyards with lanyards of the correct length. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Embraer S.A. Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-10136
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-05-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are revising an earlier notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to supersede an Airworthiness Directive (AD) for all Embraer S.A. Model ERJ 190-100 STD, -100 LR, and -100 IGW airplanes; and Model ERJ 190-200 STD, -200 LR, and -200 IGW airplanes. This action revises the NPRM by adding a requirement to revise the maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new airworthiness limitations and adding certain airplanes to the applicability. We are proposing this airworthiness directive (AD) to address the unsafe condition on these products. Since these actions impose an additional burden over those proposed in the NPRM, we are reopening the comment period to allow the public the chance to comment on these proposed changes.
Airworthiness Directives; Dassault Aviation Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-10135
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-05-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Dassault Aviation Model FALCON 2000 and FALCON 2000EX airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of ice accretion on the airplane wing due to the failure of certain anti-ice piccolo tubes in the wing outboard slats. This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections of each anti-ice piccolo tube and corrective action if necessary. This proposed AD also provides an optional terminating action for the repetitive inspections. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
