Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-12226
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-06-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is withdrawing a supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking (SNPRM) that proposed to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) that would have applied to all Airbus SAS Model A330-200, A330-200 Freighter, A330-300, A340-200, A340-300, A340-500, and A340-600 series airplanes. The SNPRM would have required repetitive tests of affected free fall actuators (FFAs), and replacement of any affected FFA that fails a test with a serviceable FFA; as specified in European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD 2019-0164, dated July 11, 2019 (``EASA AD 2019-0164''). Since issuance of the SNPRM, the FAA has determined that the SNPRM does not adequately address the identified unsafe condition. Accordingly, the SNPRM is withdrawn.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-12225
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-06-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2017-18-17, which applies to all Airbus SAS Model A300 B4-603, A300 B4- 620, A300 B4-622, A300 B4-605R, A300 B4-622R, A300 F4-605R, A300 F4- 622R, and A300 C4-605R Variant F airplanes. AD 2017-18-17 requires modifying certain fuselage frames and a repair on certain modified airplanes. Since AD 2017-18-17 was issued, the FAA has determined that, for certain airplanes, a rotating probe inspection must be performed prior to oversizing of the open-holes, and consequently more work is necessary for airplanes that have previously been modified. This proposed AD would continue to require the actions in AD 2017-18-17. This proposed AD would also require, for certain airplanes, an inspection to determine if rotating probe inspections were performed prior to oversizing of the open-holes, and repair if necessary, as specified in a European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which will be incorporated by reference. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; General Electric Company Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2020-12160

AD 2018-15-04 requires ultrasonic inspection (UI) of high-pressure turbine (HPT) stage 1 and stage 2 disks. Since we issued AD 2018-15-04, GE determined the need to expand the population of affected disks. This proposed AD would retain the required inspections while expanding the population of affected disks. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
