Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-02938
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-02-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2017-07-05, which applied to all Airbus SAS Model A300 series airplanes; and Model A300 B4-600, B4-600R, and F4-600R series airplanes, and Model A300 C4- 605R Variant F airplanes (collectively called Model A300-600 series airplanes). AD 2017-07-05 required repetitive detailed visual inspections of the main landing gear (MLG) leg components and replacement of the MLG leg if cracked components are found. This AD retains the requirements of AD 2017-07-05 and removes the credit for doing an MLG overhaul in lieu of the initial inspection of the MLG leg components. This AD was prompted by further investigation after AD 2017-07-05 was issued, which revealed that overhaul of the MLG does not alleviate the need for inspecting the MLG hinge arm/barrel pin for cracking. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

Foreign Civil Aviation Authority Certifying Statements
Document Number: 2019-02634
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-02-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to revise a regulation that imposes a duplicative requirement on foreign applicants for type certificates of import products. Existing FAA regulations require all applicants to submit two documents: A compliance listing to document the means of compliance with applicable standards; and a corresponding statement of compliance from the applicant certifying that all the requirements in the certification basis have been complied with. These compliance documents are duplicative and redundant to the certifying statement that the FAA already requires from the foreign civil aviation authority of the country or jurisdiction having State of Design responsibility for the design approval holder of the product. The FAA proposes to no longer require either the compliance listing or the accompanying statement of compliance from the foreign applicant.
