Airworthiness Directives; Fokker Model F27 Mark 050 Airplanes
Document Number: E7-23346
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-12-03
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) 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; Airbus Model A330 Airplanes

Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 727 Airplanes
Document Number: E7-23342
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-12-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Boeing Model 727 airplanes. This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections for any cracking of or damage to the left side and right side flight deck No. 2, No. 4, and No. 5 windows, as necessary, and corrective actions if necessary. This proposed AD results from reports of in-flight departure and separation of the flight deck windows. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct cracking in the vinyl interlayer or damage to the structural inner glass panes of the flight deck No. 2, No. 4, and No. 5 windows, which could result in loss of a window and rapid loss of cabin pressure. Loss of cabin pressure could cause crew communication difficulties or crew incapacitation.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) Airplanes
Document Number: E7-23339
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-12-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation

The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as:
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A330 Series Airplanes and Model A340-200 and -300 Series Airplanes
Document Number: E7-23338
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-12-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model A330 series airplanes and Model A340-200 and - 300 series airplanes. This proposed AD would require revising the airplane flight manual (AFM) to prohibit the flightcrew from performing CAT 2 and CAT 3 automatic landings and roll-outs at certain airports. This AD also provides an optional terminating action for the AFM revision. This proposed AD results from data showing that the magnetic variation table installed in certain Honeywell and Northrop Grumman air data inertial reference units (ADIRUs) is obsolete at certain airports. We are proposing this AD to prevent the airplane from departing the runway during a CAT 2 or CAT 3 automatic landing or roll-out, due to differences between actual magnetic variation and the values in the ADIRU magnetic variation tables.
Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 707 Airplanes and Model 720 and 720B Series Airplanes
