Federal Aviation Administration July 12, 2007 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce plc RB211-524 and -535 Series Turbofan Engines
Document Number: E7-13410
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-07-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Rolls-Royce plc (RR) RB211-524 and -535 series turbofan engines. This AD requires initial and repetitive fluorescent penetrant inspections (FPI) of the high pressure (HP) compressor stage 1 and 2 rotor discs for cracks. This AD results from reports of low-cycle- fatigue cracks found at overhaul in the interface weld between the HP compressor stage 1 and 2 rotor disc. We are issuing this AD to prevent uncontained engine failure and damage to the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; AEROTECHNIC Vertiebs-u. Service GmbH Model Honeywell CAS67A ACAS II Systems Appliances
Document Number: E7-13249
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-07-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as:
Airworthiness Directives; Cirrus Design Corporation Models SR20 and SR22 Airplanes
Document Number: E7-13248
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-07-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Cirrus Design Corporation (CDC) Models SR20 and SR22 airplanes. This AD requires you to replace the pick-up collar support and nylon screws, of the Cirrus Airplane Parachute System (CAPS), with a new design pick-up collar support and custom tension screws. This AD results from a CDC report of an in-flight CAPS activation where the parachute failed to successfully deploy. We are issuing this AD to correct pick-up collar support fasteners of the CAPS, which could result in the premature separation of the collar. This condition, if not corrected, could result in the parachute failing to successfully deploy (CAPS failure).
Airworthiness Directives; Pacific Aerospace Corporation, Ltd Model 750XL Airplanes
Document Number: E7-13242
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-07-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as:
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A330 and A340 Airplanes
Document Number: E7-13117
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-07-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus Model A330 and A340 airplanes. This AD requires revising the Airworthiness Limitations Section of the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness to incorporate new limitations for fuel tank systems. This AD results from fuel system reviews conducted by the manufacturer. We are issuing this AD to prevent the potential of ignition sources inside fuel tanks, which, in combination with flammable fuel vapors caused by latent failures, alterations, repairs, or maintenance actions, could result in fuel tank explosions and consequent loss of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier Model CL-600-1A11 (CL-600), CL-600-2A12 (CL-601), CL-600-2B16 (CL-601-3A, CL-601-3R, and CL-604) Airplanes
Document Number: E7-13081
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-07-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier Model CL-600-1A11 (CL-600), CL-600-2A12 (CL-601), and CL-600-2B16 (CL-601-3A, CL-601-3R, and CL-604) airplanes. This AD requires inspecting to identify the part number and serial number of the selector valves of the nose landing gear (NLG) and the nose gear door, and doing related investigative and corrective actions if necessary. This AD results from reports of uncommanded partial retractions of the NLG. We are issuing this AD to prevent internal leakage of the selector valve, which, under certain conditions, could result in an uncommanded retraction of the NLG with consequent damage to the airplane and possible serious injury to ground personnel.
