Federal Aviation Administration September 2, 2010 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; Thielert Aircraft Engines GmbH (TAE) Models TAE 125-01 and TAE 125-02-99 Reciprocating Engines Installed In, But Not Limited To, Diamond Aircraft Industries Model DA 42 Airplanes; Correction
Document Number: C1-2010-21870
Type: Rule
Date: 2010-09-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is correcting airworthiness directive (AD) 2010-11-09, which published in the Federal Register. That AD applies to TAE models TAE 125-01 and TAE 125-02-99 reciprocating engines, installed in, but not limited to, Diamond Aircraft Industries model DA 42 airplanes. The part number for engine model TAE 125-01 is missing a digit in paragraph (c) and in paragraph (e)(3). This document corrects those part numbers. In all other respects, the original document remains the same.

Document Number: 2010-21910
Type: Notice
Date: 2010-09-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
Pursuant to Section 10(a)(2) of the Federal Advisory Committee Act (Pub. L. 92-463, 5 U.S.C. App. 2), notice is hereby given of a meeting of the Commercial Space Transportation Advisory Committee (COMSTAC). The meeting will take place on Thursday, October 7, 2010, starting at 8 a.m. at the National Housing Center, 1201 15th Street, NW., Washington, DC 20005.
Airworthiness Directives; Robert E. Rust, Jr. Model DeHavilland DH.C1 Chipmunk 21, DH.C1 Chipmunk 22, and DH.C1 Chipmunk 22A Airplanes
Document Number: 2010-21741
Type: Rule
Date: 2010-09-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Robert E. Rust, Jr. Models DeHavilland DH.C1 Chipmunk 21, DH.C1 Chipmunk 22, and DH.C1 Chipmunk 22A airplanes. This AD requires you to do a one-time inspection of the flap operating system for an unapproved latch plate design installation, with replacement as necessary. This AD results from a report of a latch plate failing in service that was not made in accordance with the applicable de Havilland drawing. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct an unauthorized latch plate design installation which could result in an un-commanded retraction of the flaps. This failure could lead to a stall during a landing approach.
Airworthiness Directives; GA 8 Airvan (Pty) Ltd Models GA8 and GA8-TC320 Airplanes
Document Number: 2010-21725
Type: Rule
Date: 2010-09-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are revising an existing 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; Agusta S.p.A. (Agusta) Model A119 and AW119 MKII Helicopters
Document Number: 2010-21593
Type: Rule
Date: 2010-09-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This document publishes in the Federal Register an amendment adopting Emergency Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2010-12-51, which was sent previously to all known U.S. owners and operators of the specified Agusta model helicopters by individual letters. This AD requires, before further flight, removing the forward boot from the hub-locking nut (nut) and inserting a gauge between the tail rotor control rod (rod) and nut until the gauge stops. This AD then requires, depending on the depth measurement from the face of the nut, either reidentifying the tail rotor gearbox (TGB) with a new part number (P/N) or replacing the TGB and the associated parts with airworthy parts. This AD is prompted by a report of a missing rod bushing (bushing) from a 90- degree TGB installed on a Model AW119 MKII helicopter. The Agusta Model A119 helicopters also have the affected TGB installed; therefore, they are also included in the applicability of this AD. The actions specified by this AD are intended to detect a missing bushing in the TGB and to prevent abnormal vibration, damage to the tail rotor system, loss of the yaw control function, and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.
Airworthiness Directives; Eurocopter France Model SA330J Helicopters
Document Number: 2010-21578
Type: Rule
Date: 2010-09-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This document publishes in the Federal Register an amendment adopting Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2010-16-51, which was sent previously to all known U.S. owners and operators of Eurocopter France (Eurocopter) Model SA330J helicopters by individual letters. This AD requires, within 10 hours time-in-service (TIS), inspecting for a gap between the main gearbox (MGB) oil cooling fan assembly (fan) rotor blade and the upper section of the guide vane bearing housing. This inspection must be accomplished by using a feeler gauge attached to a rigid rod. If the feeler gauge cannot be inserted between the blade and the housing, this AD requires replacing the two fan rotor shaft bearings with two airworthy bearings. This AD is prompted by the separation of a fan rotor blade that caused puncture holes in the transmission deck. This condition, if not corrected, could lead to damage to the hydraulic lines and flight controls, and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701, & 702); Model CL-600-2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705); and Model CL-600-2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900) Airplanes

Document Number: 2010-21415
Type: Rule
Date: 2010-09-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding an existing 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; BAE Systems (Operations) Limited Model BAe 146 and Avro 146-RJ Airplanes
Document Number: 2010-21411

Date: 2010-09-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Model 737-100 and -200 Series Airplanes
Document Number: 2010-20491
Type: Rule
Date: 2010-09-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Model 737-100 and -200 series airplanes. This AD requires repetitive inspections for cracking and damaged fasteners of certain fuselage frames and stub beams, and corrective actions if necessary. For certain airplanes, this AD also requires repetitive inspections for cracking of the inboard chord fastener hole of the frame at body station 639, stringer S-16, and corrective actions if necessary. For certain airplanes, this AD also requires an inspection to determine the edge margin of the lower chord. For airplanes with a certain short edge margin, this AD requires repetitive inspections for cracking, and corrective actions if necessary; replacing the lower chord terminates the repetitive inspections. This AD requires an eventual preventive modification. For certain airplanes, doing the modification or a repair terminates the repetitive inspections for the repaired or modified frame only. For airplanes on which the modification or repair is done at certain body stations, this AD requires repetitive inspections for cracking of certain frame webs and inner and outer chords, and corrective actions if necessary. For certain other airplanes, this AD requires a modification which includes reinforcing the body frame inner chords, replacing the stub beam upper chords and attach angles, and reinforcing the stub beam web. This AD results from reports of fatigue cracks at certain frame sections, in addition to stub beam cracking, caused by high flight cycle stresses from both pressurization and maneuver load. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct fatigue cracking of certain fuselage frames and stub beams, and possible severed frames, which could result in reduced structural integrity of the frames. This reduced structural integrity can increase loading in the fuselage skin, which will accelerate skin crack growth and result in rapid decompression of the fuselage.
