Federal Aviation Administration December 11, 2008 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A319, A320, and A321 Series Airplanes Equipped With International Aero Engines (IAE) Model V2500-A1 Engines or Model V25xx-A5 Series Engines
Document Number: E8-29182
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-12-11
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; Boeing Model 757 Airplanes
Document Number: E8-29079
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-12-11
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Boeing Model 757 airplanes. This AD requires changing the wiring of the fuel boost pump and doing other specified actions. This AD results from reports of short circuits in an electrical connector at the wing-to- body electrical disconnect panel. We are issuing this AD to prevent a short circuit of the electrical connector for the fuel boost pump, which could cause the instruments for fuel, flap, slat, and aileron systems to malfunction and create a potential ignition source inside the fuel tanks. A potential ignition source inside the fuel tank in combination with flammable fuel vapors could result in a fuel tank explosion and consequent loss of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier Model CL-600-2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701 & 702) Airplanes and Model CL-600-2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900) Airplanes
Document Number: E8-29077

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A330 Airplanes; and Model A340-200 and -300 Airplanes
Document Number: E8-29076

Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 747-100, 747-100B, 747-100B SUD, 747-200B, 747-200C, 747-200F, 747-300, 747-400, 747-400D, 747-400F, and 747SR Series Airplanes
Document Number: E8-29073
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-12-11
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Boeing Model 747-100, 747-100B, 747-100B SUD, 747-200B, 747-200C, 747- 200F, 747-300, 747-400, 747-400D, 747-400F, and 747SR series airplanes. This AD requires repetitive inspections for cracks or fractures of the forward end attachment and the forward lower flange of the flap tracks of the trailing edge flaps, and corrective actions if necessary. For certain airplanes, this AD would also require modifying the fail-safe links of the main carriage. This AD results from a detailed structural analysis of the flap attach structural and fail-safe components, accomplished as a result of a dynamic stability and control analysis, which could not demonstrate continued safe flight and landing of the airplane after the loss of a trailing edge flap. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct cracks or fractures of the primary structural and fail-safe load paths of the inboard and outboard trailing edge flaps, which could result in the loss of a flap during takeoff or landing, reducing flightcrew ability to maintain the safe flight and landing of the airplane.
