Advisory Circular 33.87-1, Calibration Test, Endurance Test, and Teardown Inspection for Turbine Engine Certification (§§ 33.85, 33.87, 33.93)
This notice announces the issuance of Advisory Circular 9AC) 33.87-1, Calibration Test, Endurance Test, and Teardown Inspection for Turbine Engine Certification. This AC sets forth acceptable methods of compliance for aircraft engines with the provisions of Sec. Sec. 33.85, 33.87, and 33.93 of Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations. This AC provides guidance for part 33 type certification endurance testing of all classes of turbine engines.
Draft Order 8040.2, Airworthiness Directive Process for Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information
This notice announces the availability of, and requests comments on draft Order 8040.2, Airworthiness Directive Process for Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information. The draft order describes new policy and procedures for developing and issuing Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) airworthiness directives (AD) on imported products where the State of Design Authority issued mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI). The process will allow for a timelier issuance of ADs.
Standard Instrument Approach Procedures, Weather Takeoff Minimums; Miscellaneous Amendments
This amendment establishes, amends, suspends, or revokes Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) and/or Weather Takeoff Minimums 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, 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.
Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 767-200, -300, and -300F Series Airplanes
The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD), which applies to certain Boeing Model 767-200, -300, and -300F series airplanes. That AD currently requires repetitive inspections of the lubrication passage and link assembly joint in the inboard and outboard flaps of the trailing edge for discrepancies, and corrective action if necessary. This new AD requires new inspections for cracking or severe wear of the bearings of the link assembly, inspections of any link assembly not previously inspected for damage, and corrective actions if necessary. This AD also ends the existing repetitive inspections for certain airplanes, and extends the repetitive interval for the existing repetitive inspections and the compliance time for the corrective action on certain other airplanes. This AD also provides an optional terminating action. This AD results from additional reports indicating fractured bearings of the link assembly joint in the inboard and outboard flaps of the trailing edge. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the bearings in the link assembly joint, which could result in separation of the inboard or outboard flap and consequent loss of control of the airplane.
