Ford Motor Company; Denial of Petition for Inconsequentiality
Document Number: 2021-01540
Type: Notice
Date: 2021-01-25
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
On July 10, 2017, Takata Corporation (``Takata'') filed a defect information report (``DIR'') in which it determined that a safety-related defect exists in phase-stabilized ammonium nitrate (``PSAN'') driver-side air bag inflators that it manufactured with a calcium sulfate desiccant and supplied to Ford Motor Company (``Ford''), Mazda North American Operations (``Mazda''), and Nissan North America Inc. (``Nissan'') for use in certain vehicles. Ford petitioned the Agency for a decision that the equipment defect determined to exist by Takata is inconsequential as it relates to motor vehicle safety in the Ford vehicles affected by Takata's DIR, and that Ford should therefore be relieved of its notification and remedy obligations under the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966 and its applicable regulations. After reviewing the petition, NHTSA has concluded that Ford has not met its burden of establishing that the defect is inconsequential to motor vehicle safety, and denies the petition.

Document Number: 2021-01306
Type: Rule
Date: 2021-01-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2021-01161
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-01-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2017-14-13, which applies to certain The Boeing Company Model 737-600, -700, -700C, -800, -900, and -900ER series airplanes. AD 2017-14-13 requires a torque check of the screws in the cover assembly of the heel rest for both the captain's and the first officer's rudder pedals, and corrective action if necessary. Since the FAA issued AD 2017-14-13, operators have continued to find loose rudder pedal cover fasteners on previously inspected airplanes and airplanes outside the applicability of AD 2017-14-13. This proposed AD would require modifying the rudder pedal cover and shroud, and apply to all The Boeing Company Model 737- 600, -700, -700C, -800, -900, and -900ER series airplanes and Model 737-8 and 737-9 airplanes. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is revising an earlier proposal for all The Boeing Company Model 737-100, -200, -200C, -300, -400, and -500 series airplanes. This action revises the notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) by reducing the compliance time for certain airplanes. The FAA is proposing this airworthiness directive (AD) to address the unsafe condition on these products.

Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce Deutschland Ltd & Co KG (Type Certificate Previously Held by Rolls-Royce Deutschland GmbH, Formerly BMW Rolls-Royce GmbH) Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2021-00672
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-01-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation

This proposed AD was prompted by an investigation by RRD, which revealed a quality escape during the high-pressure turbine (HPT) stage 1 disk rim cooling air hole manufacturing process. This proposed AD would require removing affected HPT disks from service prior to reaching specified compliance times or at the next engine shop visit, whichever occurs first. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
