Federal Aviation Administration November 12, 2019 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-24501
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-11-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 787-8 airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report of an escapement from the wing spar terminal fitting supplier indicating that the engineering requirements provided by Boeing for controlling machine mismatch were incorrect for part faying surfaces, which can result in a reduced fatigue capability at the interface of the side of body (SOB) rib. This AD requires repetitive inspections for fatigue cracking and applicable on-condition actions for the SOB rib webs where fastener locations attach the terminal fittings. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-24495
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-11-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440), CL-600-2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701 & 702), CL-600-2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705), CL-600-2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900), and CL-600-2E25 (Regional Jet Series 1000) airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of power control unit (PCU) rod end fractures due to pitting corrosion. This AD requires revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new maintenance tasks. This AD also requires detailed inspections of the elevator PCU rod ends and applicable corrective actions. This AD also prohibits using certain aircraft maintenance manual tasks. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-24492
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-11-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus SAS Model A330-200, A330-300, A340-200, and A340-300 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report that revealed the wheel axles of the main landing gear (MLG) were machined with a certain radius and a determination that the life limit for the affected wheel axles of the MLG must be reduced. This AD requires an inspection to determine the part number and serial number of each MLG wheel axle and replacement of affected parts prior to exceeding the reduced life limits. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
