Federal Aviation Administration September 11, 2007 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; Saab Model SAAB 2000 Airplanes
Document Number: E7-17832
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-09-11
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This proposed AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated 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; Fokker Model F27 Mark 050, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, and 700 Airplanes
Document Number: E7-17831

Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 767 Airplanes
Document Number: E7-17830
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-09-11
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Boeing Model 767 airplanes. This proposed AD would require installing an automatic shutoff system for the auxiliary fuel tank pump, revising the airplane flight manual (AFM) to advise the flight crew of certain operating restrictions for airplanes equipped with an automatic auxiliary fuel tank pump shutoff control, revising the Airworthiness Limitations (AWLs) section of certain maintenance documents to include new inspections of the automatic shutoff system for the auxiliary fuel tank boost pumps, and, for certain airplanes, installing a placard to alert the flight crew of certain fuel usage restrictions. This proposed AD results from a design review of the fuel tank systems. We are proposing this AD to prevent an overheat condition outside the pump explosion-resistance area that is open to the pump inlet, which could cause an ignition source for the fuel vapors in the fuel tank and result in fuel tank explosions and consequent loss of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; General Electric Company CF6-80E1 Series Turbofan Engines
Document Number: E7-17678
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-09-11
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for General Electric Company (GE) CF6-80E1 series turbofan engines with certain part number (P/N) compressor rear frames (CRFs) installed. This AD requires revisions to the Airworthiness Limitations Section (ALS) of the manufacturer's Instructions for Continued Airworthiness (ICA) and air carrier's approved Continued Airworthiness Maintenance Programs (CAMP) to include initial and repetitive eddy current inspections (ECIs) or fluorescent penetrant inspections (FPIs) of the affected CRFs. This AD results from the need to require enhanced inspections of the CF6-80E1 series engine CRFs for cracks. We are issuing this AD to prevent rupture of the CRF, which could result in an under-cowl engine fire.
