Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce plc Turbofan Engines
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2017-03- 02, which applies to certain Rolls-Royce plc (RR) RB211 Trent 768-60, 772-60, and 772B-60 turbofan engines. AD 2017-03-02 requires initial and repetitive ultrasonic inspections (UIs) of the affected low- pressure (LP) compressor blades. Since we issued AD 2017-03-02, RR issued revised service information to reduce the inspection threshold for UIs of the affected blades. This proposed AD would retain the UIs in AD 2017-03-02 while reducing the inspection threshold. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 737-600, -700, -700C, -800, -900, and -900ER series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of cracks in the skin and a certain chord at three fastener locations common to the drag link assembly at the chord. This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections of the skin under the drag link assembly for any cracks, and applicable on-condition actions. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
