Airworthiness Directives; Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-21103
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-09-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation (Gulfstream) Model GVI airplanes. This AD requires revising the Normal and Abnormal Procedures sections of the airplane flight manual (AFM). This AD was prompted by potential failure of the bi-directional data bus that sends and receives critical signals between the flight control computer (FCC) and the flight control surfaces.

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-20951
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-09-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 98-18-24, which applied to certain Airbus SAS Model A320 series airplanes. AD 98- 18-24 required repetitive inspections to detect cracking in the inner flange of a certain door frame, and corrective actions, if necessary. AD 98-18-24 also provided an optional terminating action for the repetitive inspections. This AD continues to require the repetitive inspections of the inner flange of a certain door frame, with reduced repetitive inspection intervals, and corrective action if necessary. This AD was prompted by a report of cracks on the inner flange of a certain door frame, and by the results of a full scale fatigue test that indicated the intervals for the repetitive inspections required by AD 98-18-24 must be reduced. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

Document Number: 2018-20931
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-09-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus SAS Model A310 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by a determination that new or more restrictive maintenance requirements and airworthiness limitations are necessary. This AD requires revising the maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new or more restrictive maintenance requirements and airworthiness limitations. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Embraer S.A. Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-20929
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-09-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation

Model ERJ 190-100 STD, -100 LR, -100 ECJ, and -100 IGW airplanes; and Model ERJ 190-200 STD, -200 LR, and -200 IGW airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of bushing migration and loss of nut torque on the engine pylon lower inboard and outboard link fittings. This AD requires modification of the attaching parts of the left-hand (LH) and right-hand (RH) pylon lower link fittings, inboard and outboard positions. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

Type: Rule
Date: 2018-09-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all BAE Systems (Operations) Limited Model 4101 airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report of an improperly installed spacer around the electrical pins in the cartridge connector for the fire bottle extinguisher cartridge. This AD requires repetitive inspections for excessive or missing spacers, and applicable corrective actions. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-20920
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-09-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 727 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of cracking in the inboard lower flange and adjacent web near the forward attachment of the outboard flap track at a certain position on a Model 737-300 airplane. The flap tracks of Model 737-300 airplanes are similar to the flap tracks of Model 727 airplanes. This proposed AD would require repetitive detailed inspections and surface high frequency eddy current (HFEC) inspections of each outboard flap track at certain positions for any crack and discrepancy, and applicable on-condition actions. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Fokker Services B.V. Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-20919
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-09-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Fokker Services B.V. Model F28 Mark 0070 and 0100 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of electrical arcing between the auxiliary power unit (APU) starter motor positive terminal and the APU fuel drain line. This proposed AD would require the removal of certain clamps and replacement of the flexible APU fuel drain line. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-20918
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-09-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 707, 720, and 720B series airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report indicating that a fracture of the midspar fitting resulted in the separation of the inboard strut and engine from the airplane, and a determination that existing inspections are not sufficient for timely detection of cracking. This AD requires repetitive inspections of certain nacelle strut spar and overwing fittings, and diagonal braces and associated fittings; replacement of the diagonal brace assembly on certain airplanes; and applicable related investigative and corrective actions. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

This AD was prompted by the results of a fleet survey, which revealed cracking in bulkhead frame webs at a certain body station. This AD requires repetitive inspections of the bulkhead frame web at a certain body station and applicable on-condition actions. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
