Notice of Intention To Grant Exclusive License in Government-Owned Invention
The FAA hereby gives notice of its intention to grant an exclusive license in the invention titled ``Automated System for Assisting Employees to Comply with Filing Requirements'', Application Number 11/174,642, to HRWorx LLC, a small business located in Herndon, VA. HRWorks is participating in a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement with the William J. Hughes Technical Center to further develop and commercialize the Government-owned invention. (Authority: 35 U.S.C. 209, 15 U.S.C. 3710a, 37 CFR part 401)
Airworthiness Directives; Turbomeca Arriel 1B, 1D, and 1D1 Turboshaft Engines
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Turbomeca Arriel 1B, 1D, and 1D1 turboshaft engines. This AD requires inspecting the 2nd stage nozzle guide vanes (NGV2) for wall thickness. This AD results from one instance of a fractured 2nd stage turbine blade followed by an uncommanded engine shutdown. We are issuing this AD to detect and prevent perforation of the NGV2 that could cause fracture of a turbine blade that could result in an uncommanded engine in-flight shutdown on a single-engine helicopter.
Airworthiness Directives; Lycoming Engines (Formerly Textron Lycoming) AEIO-360, IO-360, O-360, LIO-360, and LO-360 Series Reciprocating Engines
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Lycoming Engines (formerly Textron Lycoming) AEIO-360, IO-360, O-360, LIO-360, and LO-360 series reciprocating engines. This AD requires replacing certain crankshafts. This AD results from a crankshaft failure in a Lycoming LO-360-A1H6 reciprocating engine. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the crankshaft, which could result in total engine power loss, in-flight engine failure, and possible loss of the aircraft.
