Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-20333
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-09-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) AD 2015-24-04, which applies to certain Bombardier, Inc., Model CL-600- 2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes, Model CL-600-2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701, & 702) airplanes, Model CL-600-2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705) airplanes, Model CL-600-2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900) airplanes, and Model CL-600-2E25 (Regional Jet Series 1000) airplanes. AD 2015-24-04 requires repetitive inspections of the cage assembly for damaged or detached window louver panel assemblies (WLPAs) and blowout panels (BOPs), and corrective actions if necessary. Since AD 2015-24-04 was issued, the FAA has determined that new airworthiness limitations, as well as additional actions, are necessary to address the unsafe condition. This proposed AD would require one-time inspections of the WLPAs and BOPs, corrective actions if necessary, and a revision of the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new airworthiness limitations, which would terminate the proposed inspection requirement. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

This proposed AD would require removal, inspection, and replacement of the affected HPT inner stationary seal, and depending on the findings, removal and replacement of the rotating air HPT front seal. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-20184
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-09-18
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 737 series airplanes, excluding Model 737-100, -200, -200C, -300, -400, and -500 series airplanes.

The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain 328 Support Services GmbH Model 328-100 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of missing rivets on landing flap support arm 2. This proposed AD would require an inspection of the landing flap support arms for missing rivets and corrective actions 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; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-19295
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-09-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model DHC-8-401 and -402 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report that certain fuselages were delivered with non-conforming keel tension fittings and stringer end fittings. This proposed AD would require a detailed visual inspection of stringer end fittings and keel fittings for loose or working fasteners, signs of wear, and corrosion, and repair if necessary; and a general visual inspection of the keel tension fitting and stringer end fittings, as applicable and repairs and replacement of the keel and stringer end fittings if necessary. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Standard Instrument Approach Procedures, and Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures; Miscellaneous Amendments
Document Number: 2019-18981
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-09-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This rule establishes, amends, suspends, or removes Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) and associated Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures (ODPs) for operations at certain airports. These regulatory actions are needed because of the adoption of new or revised criteria, or because of changes occurring in the National Airspace System, such as the commissioning of new navigational facilities, adding new obstacles, or changing air traffic requirements. These changes are designed to provide safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace and to promote safe flight operations under instrument flight rules at the affected airports.

Establishment of Class E Airspace; Lander, WY
Document Number: 2019-19249
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-09-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Hunt Field, Lander, WY, to accommodate new area navigation (RNAV) procedures at the airport. This action is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations within the National Airspace System.
Airworthiness Directives; General Electric Company Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2019-19169
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-09-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all General Electric Company (GE) CF6-80C2A5F, -80C2B1F, -80C2B2F, -80C2B4F, -80C2B5F, -80C2B6F, -80C2B6FA, -80C2B7F, -80C2B8F, -80C2D1F, -80C2K1F, -80C2L1F, -80E1A2, -80E1A3, -80E1A4, and -80E1A4/B model turbofan engines with a certain hydromechanical unit (HMU) installed. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of fuel coking of the HMU fuel metering valve (FMV) electro-hydraulic servo valves (EHSV) resulting in tailpipe fire. This proposed AD would require removal of the HMU and replacement with a part eligible for installation. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Proposed Revocation of VHF Omnidirectional Range (VOR) Federal Airway V-61 and Amendment of Area Navigation Route T-286 Due to the Decommissioning of the Robinson, KS, VOR
Document Number: 2019-19112
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-09-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to remove VHF Omnidirectional Range (VOR) Federal airway V-61 in its entirety and extend area navigation (RNAV) route T-286 in its place. The FAA is proposing this action due to the planned decommissioning of the Robinson, KS (RBA), VOR portion of the Robinson VOR/Distance Measuring Equipment (VOR/DME) navigation aid (NAVAID). The Robinson VOR is being decommissioned in support of the FAA's VOR Minimum Operational Network (MON) program.
Airworthiness Directives; Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation Helicopters
Document Number: 2019-19104
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-09-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation (Sikorsky) Model S-70, S-70A, S-70C, S-70C(M), and S-70C(M1) helicopters. This proposed AD was prompted by four incidents of disbonding between the tail rotor (T/R) blade pitch horn and the torque tube. This proposed AD would require recurring visual and tap inspections of the T/R blade, and depending on the outcome, replacing the T/R blade. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
