Airworthiness Directives; Raytheon Aircraft Company Model 390 Airplanes
Document Number: E6-22382
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-12-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) to supersede AD 2006-02-51, which applies to certain Raytheon Aircraft Company Model 390 airplanes. AD 2006-02-51 currently requires you to inspect the left engine hydraulic pump outlet tube and the clamp; replace the clamp at each inspection; replace the hydraulic pump outlet tube immediately if any problem is found; and report the results of each inspection or replacement to the FAA. This AD is the result of several hydraulic pump outlet tube failures after issuance of AD 2006- 02-51, including failures on the right engine. This AD requires you to visually inspect the hydraulic pump outlet tube on both engines on a recurring basis and immediately replace the tube if damage is found. This AD also requires incorporation of an Airplane Flight Manual (AFM) change to not allow operation of an engine with its associated firewall hydraulic shutoff valve closed. In addition, this AD requires you to replace the hydraulic pump outlet tube if an engine is operated with its firewall hydraulic shutoff valve closed. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the hydraulic pump outlet tube and consequent leaking of hydraulic fluid. Such leakage could result in a fire. There is also a risk of loss of hydraulic system functions including normal gear extensions, speed brakes, roll spoilers, lift dump, and normal brakes.
Airworthiness Directives; Fokker Model F.28 Mark 0070 and 0100 Airplanes
Document Number: E6-22282
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-12-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Fokker Model F.28 Mark 0070 and 0100 airplanes. This proposed AD would require inspecting the carbon-fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) main landing gear (MLG) door to determine whether certain part numbers are installed. For airplanes having certain doors, this proposed AD would require inspecting the MLG outboard door for cracks, play, and loose sealant/bolts/nuts, and related investigative and corrective actions if necessary. This proposed AD would also require, for airplanes having certain doors, modifying the rod bracket attachment of the MLG outboard door. This proposed AD results from a report of a rod bracket of the MLG door detaching during flight. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct cracks in the rod bracket attachment bolts, which could result in the rod brackets detaching from the MLG door and blocking the proper functioning of the MLG.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A330 Airplanes and A340-200 and -300 Series Airplanes
Document Number: E6-22281
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-12-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model A330 airplanes and A340-200 and -300 series airplanes. For certain airplanes, this proposed AD would require inspecting to determine the part number of certain S4- and MZ-type spoiler servo-controls (SSCs). For certain other airplanes, this proposed AD would require inspecting to determine the part number of all SSCs. This proposed AD would also require replacing any affected SSC with a new SSC. This proposed AD results from a new load duty cycle defined by the manufacturer. Additional fatigue tests and calculations done on this basis indicated that the spoiler valve manifold of the S4- type SSCs, and, on certain airplanes, the maintenance cover of the MZ- type SSCs, may crack during its service life due to pressure impulse fatigue. We are proposing this AD to prevent fatigue cracking of certain SSCs, which could result in hydraulic leakage and consequent loss of SSC function and loss of the associated hydraulic system. These conditions could affect all three hydraulic systems, which could result in reduced controllability of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A319, A320, and A321 Airplanes
Document Number: E6-22280
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-12-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model A319, A320, and A321 airplanes. This proposed AD would require installing spacer assemblies at the attachment points of the YZ-latches of the cargo loading system in the forward and aft cargo compartments, as applicable. This proposed AD results from tests that have shown that the attachment points of the YZ-latches of the cargo loading system fail under maximum loads. We are proposing this AD to prevent failure of the attachment points of the YZ-latches, which could result in unrestrained cargo causing damage to the fire protection system, hydraulic system, electrical wiring, or other equipment located in the forward and aft cargo compartments. This damage could adversely affect the continued safe flight of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Fokker Model F.28 Mark 0070 and 0100 Airplanes
Document Number: E6-22279
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-12-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is revising an earlier NPRM for an airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to certain Fokker Model F.28 Mark 0070 and 0100 airplanes. The original NPRM would have superseded an existing AD that currently requires a one-time inspection of the sliding members in the main landing gear (MLG) for cracking and replacement of the sliding members with serviceable parts if necessary. The original NPRM proposed to require repetitive magnetic particle inspections of the sliding members of the MLG for cracking and corrective actions as necessary. The original NPRM resulted from inspection findings that have shown repetitive inspections are needed to establish fleet safety. This new action revises the original NPRM by correcting a certain part number in the applicability. We are proposing this supplemental NPRM to detect and correct fatigue cracking of the sliding member, which could result in possible separation of the MLG from the airplane and consequent reduced controllability of the airplane upon landing and possible injury to passengers.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier Model CL-600-2B16 (CL-604) Airplanes and Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) Airplanes
Document Number: E6-22271
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-12-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is revising an earlier NPRM for an airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to certain Bombardier Model CL-600-2B16 (CL-604) airplanes and Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes. These models may be referred to by their marketing designations as RJ100, RJ200, RJ440, CRJ100, CRJ200, CRJ440, and CL-65. The original NPRM would have superseded an existing AD that currently requires revising the Emergency Procedures section of the airplane flight manual (AFM) to advise the flightcrew of additional procedures to follow in the event of stabilizer trim runaway. The existing AD also requires revising the Abnormal Procedures section of the AFM to advise the flightcrew of procedures to follow in the event of MACH TRIM, STAB TRIM, and horizontal stabilizer trim malfunctions. The existing AD also requires revising the Normal section of the AFM to require a review of the location of certain circuit breakers and a functional check of the stabilizer trim system. In addition, the existing AD requires installing circuit breaker identification collars and provides an optional terminating action for the requirements of the AD. The original NPRM proposed to require doing the previously optional terminating action (installation of a new horizontal stabilizer trim control unit). The original NPRM resulted from a determination that the terminating action is necessary to address reports of uncommanded horizontal stabilizer trim motion. This new action revises the original NPRM by not allowing the removal of applicable temporary revisions (TRs) to the Emergency and Abnormal Procedures sections of the AFM and by adding the proposed requirement for certain airplanes to re-insert the applicable TRs of the Emergency and Abnormal Procedures sections of the AFM under certain conditions. We are proposing this supplemental NPRM to prevent horizontal stabilizer trim uncommanded motion, which could result in reduced controllability of the airplane.
Standard Instrument Approach Procedures; Miscellaneous Amendments
Document Number: E6-21954
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-12-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This amendment amends Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) for operations at certain airports. These regulatory actions are needed because of changes occurring in the National Airspace System, such as the commissioning of new navigational facilities, addition of new obstacles, or changes in 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.

Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations, part 71 (14 CFR 71) by modifying the Class E airspace area at Creston Municipal Airport, IA. An examination of controlled airspace for Creston, IA, revealed discrepancies in the legal description for the Class E airspace area. The intended effect of this rule is to provide controlled airspace of appropriate dimensions to protect aircraft executing Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAP) to Creston Municipal Airport.
Airworthiness Directives; Empresa Brasileira de Aeronautica S.A. (EMBRAER) Model EMB-135BJ Airplanes
Document Number: E6-22115
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-12-27
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Empresa Brasileira de Aeronautica S.A. (EMBRAER) Model EMB- 135BJ airplanes. This proposed AD would require modifying the forward and aft auxiliary fuel tanks. This proposed AD results from a report of sparks due to chafing between the harnesses of the forward and aft auxiliary fuel tanks, between certain harnesses attached to the aircraft structure, or between certain harnesses attached to certain mechanical components. We are proposing this AD to prevent a potential ignition source inside a fuel tank, which, in combination with flammable fuel vapors, could result in a fuel tank explosion.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A330 and A340 Airplanes
Document Number: E6-22111
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-12-27
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus Model A330 and A340 airplanes. This proposed AD would require revising the Airworthiness Limitations section of the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness by incorporating new and revised certification maintenance requirements (CMRs). This proposed AD results from the manufacturer's determination that additional and revised CMRs are necessary in order to ensure continued operational safety of the affected airplanes. We are proposing this AD to prevent safety-significant latent failures that would, in combination with one or more other specific failures or events, result in a hazardous or catastrophic failure condition.
Airworthiness Directives; Fokker Model F27 Mark 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, and 700 Airplanes
Document Number: E6-22042
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-12-27
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Fokker Model F27 Mark 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, and 700 airplanes. This AD requires revising the Limitations section of the airplane flight manual regarding the use of continuous ignition, fuel filter heating, and resetting circuit breakers during flight in certain conditions such as icing. This AD results from reports of power loss on one or both engines in icing conditions. We are issuing this AD to advise the flightcrew that continuous ignition will not reduce the probability of power loss, and what action they must take to avoid this hazard. Loss of power in one or more engines during flight, if not prevented, could result in loss of control of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Empresa Brasileira de Aeronautica S.A. (EMBRAER) Model EMB-145XR Airplanes

Type: Rule
Date: 2006-12-27
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain EMBRAER Model EMB-145XR airplanes. This AD requires replacement of certain segments of the passenger seat tracks with new, improved seat tracks. This AD results from instances where the shear plungers of the passenger seat legs were not adequately fastened. We are issuing this AD to prevent inadequate fastening of the seat leg shear plungers, which could result in failure of the passenger seat tracks during emergency landing conditions and consequent injury to passengers.
Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 777-200 and -300 Series Airplanes Equipped with Rolls-Royce Engines
Document Number: E6-22040
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-12-27
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Boeing Model 777-200 and -300 series airplanes equipped with Rolls-Royce engines. This AD requires repetitive inspections to detect cracks of the outer V-blades of the thrust reverser, and corrective action if necessary. This AD also provides for optional terminating action for the repetitive inspections. This AD results from reports of cracked outer V-blades in the thrust reversers. We are issuing this AD to prevent separation of a thrust reverser from the airplane during normal reverse thrust or during a refused takeoff, which could result in impact damage to other airplane areas. If a thrust reverser separates from the airplane during a refused takeoff, the engine could produce forward thrust, resulting in unexpected thrust asymmetry and a possible runway excursion.

Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) Airplanes
Document Number: E6-22043
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-12-26
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes. This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections of the bolts that attach the exhaust nozzle to the aft engine flange to determine if any bolts are missing or fractured, and replacement of the existing bolts with new, improved bolts. This proposed AD results from reports of the engine exhaust nozzle and fairing departing from the airplane in flight due to missing attachment bolts. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct missing or fractured attachment bolts, which could lead to the loss of an engine exhaust nozzle during flight and consequent structural damage to the airplane and hazard to people or property on the ground. Damage to the airplane could cause the airplane to yaw and result in reduced controllability of the airplane.

Document Number: E6-21352
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-12-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for Rolls-Royce Corporation (RRC) 501-D series turboprop engines. That AD requires removal from service of certain turbine rotor components at reduced life limits. This AD requires the same actions but adds two new life limits. This AD results from RRC reevaluating and revising component life limits for 501-D22 series turboprop engines. We are issuing this AD to prevent uncontained turbine rotor failure resulting in an in-flight engine shutdown and possible damage to the airplane.
