Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce plc Turbojet Engines
Document Number: 2018-09913
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-05-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Rolls- Royce plc (RR) Viper Mk. 601-22 turbojet engines. This AD requires removing the oil pump assembly, part number (P/N) V112027, and oil pressure filter, P/N V21264, from service and replacing them with parts eligible for installation. This AD was prompted by a report of an engine failure caused by installation of an incorrect oil filter. We are issuing this AD to correct the unsafe condition on these products.

Airworthiness Directives; ATR-GIE Avions de Transport Régional Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-09746
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-05-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain ATR-GIE Avions de Transport R[eacute]gional Model ATR42-200, - 300, and -320 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a determination that more restrictive maintenance requirements and airworthiness limitations are necessary. This proposed AD would require updating the maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new or more restrictive maintenance requirements and airworthiness limitations. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-09743
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-05-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus Model A330-200 Freighter series airplanes, Model A330-200 series airplanes, Model A330-300 series airplanes, Model A340-200 series airplanes, Model A340-300 series airplanes, Model A340-500 series airplanes, and Model A340-600 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of deficient fatigue performance of high strength steel used in forgings. Components made from the affected high strength steel are installed on the main landing gear (MLG), nose landing gear (NLG), and center landing gear (CLG). This proposed AD would require identifying the part number and serial number of certain components installed on the MLG, NLG, and CLG; replacing affected parts; identifying the airplane's weight variant; and determining the applicable life limit for certain components installed on the MLG, NLG, and CLG. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Helicopters
Document Number: 2018-09742
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-05-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Airbus Helicopters Model AS-365N2, AS 365 N3, EC 155B, EC155B1, SA- 365N1, and SA-366G1 helicopters. This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections of the aft fuselage outer skin. This proposed AD is prompted by several reports of aft fuselage outer skin disbonding. The actions of this proposed AD are intended to address an unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; SOCATA Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-09602
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-05-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 98-16-03 for SOCATA Models TB 9 and TB 10 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 fatigue cracking of the wing front attachments on the wing and fuselage sides. We are issuing this proposed AD to require actions to address the unsafe condition on these products.
