We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain International Aero Engines (IAE) PW1133G-JM, PW1133GA-JM, PW1130G-JM, PW1127G-JM, PW1127GA-JM, PW1127G1-JM, PW1124G-JM, PW1124G1-JM, and PW1122G-JM turbofan engines. This AD requires a one-time visual inspection of the engine fan hub for damage, and removal of parts if damage or defects are found that are outside the serviceable limits. This AD was prompted by reports of damage to the engine fan hub. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

Document Number: 2018-13611
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-06-26
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This amendment adopts miscellaneous amendments to the required IFR (instrument flight rules) altitudes and changeover points for certain Federal airways, jet routes, or direct routes for which a minimum or maximum en route authorized IFR altitude is prescribed. This regulatory action is needed because of changes occurring in the National Airspace System. These changes are designed to provide for the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace under instrument conditions in the affected areas.
