Airworthiness Directives; International Aero Engines (IAE)
Document Number: E9-9965
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2009-04-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for IAE V2500-A1, V2527E-A5, V2527M-A5, V2528-D5, V2530-A5, and V2533- A5 turbofan engines. This proposed AD would require a onetime inspection of certain vortex reducers for cracks, and replacing the reducer and high-pressure (HP) compressor stage 3-8 drum if the reducer is cracked. This proposed AD results from reports of fractured vortex reducers found at shop visits. We are proposing this AD to inspect for cracks in the vortex reducer. Cracks in the vortex reducer could cause an uncontained failure of the HP compressor stage 3-8 drum, which could result in damage to the airplane.

Document Number: E9-9714
Type: Rule
Date: 2009-04-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD), which applies to certain Airbus Model A318-100 and A319-100 series airplanes; A320-111 airplanes; A320-200 series airplanes; and A321-100 and A321-200 series airplanes. That AD currently requires a one-time inspection of the horizontal hinge pin of the 103VU electrical panel in the avionics compartment to determine if the hinge pin can move out of the hinge, and related investigative and corrective actions if necessary. This new AD instead requires installing a hinge pin stopper on the internal door of the 103VU electrical panel. This AD results from a report indicating that electrical wire damage was found in the 103VU electrical panel due to contact between the hinge pin and the adjacent electrical wire harness. We are issuing this AD to prevent contact between the horizontal hinge pin and the adjacent electrical wire harness, which could result in damage to electrical wires, and consequent arcing and/or failure of associated systems.

Document Number: E9-9713
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2009-04-29
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: An A340 operator has reported an uncommanded engine N[deg]4 shut down during taxi after landing. The root cause of this event has been identified as failure of the fuel pump Non Return Valve (NRV) preventing the collector cell jet pump from working. This led to engine N[deg]4 collector cell fuel level to drop below the pump inlet and consequently causing engine N[deg]4 flame out. Multiple NRV failures in combination with failure modes trapping fuel could potentially increase the quantity of unusable fuel on aircraft possibly leading to fuel starvation which could result in engine in-flight shut down and would constitute an unsafe condition. The proposed AD would

Airworthiness Directives; Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation Model S-92A Helicopters
Document Number: E9-9301
Type: Rule
Date: 2009-04-27
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This document publishes in the Federal Register an amendment adopting Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2009-07-53, which was sent previously to all known U.S. owners and operators of Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation (Sikorsky) Model S-92A helicopters by individual letters. This amendment is prompted by the failure of 2 main gearbox filter bowl assembly studs (studs) that were found broken during a fatal accident investigation in Canada. Prior to the accident, the manufacturer was investigating a July 2008 incident that also involved broken studs. In both cases, the broken studs resulted in rapid loss of oil. The failures have been tied to fretting and galling of the original titanium studs; therefore, this AD requires removing all titanium studs and replacing them with steel studs. The actions specified by this AD are intended to prevent failure of a stud, which could result in rapid loss of oil, failure of the main gearbox, and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.
