Airworthiness Directives; Cessna Aircraft Company (Cessna) Model 402C Airplanes Modified by Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) SA927NW and Model 414A Airplanes Modified by STC SA892NW
Document Number: 2010-27460
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-10-29
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This proposed AD would require a complete inspection of the flap system and modification of the flap control system. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of a Cessna Model 414A airplane modified by STC SA892NW that experienced an asymmetrical flap condition causing an un-commanded roll when the pilot set the flaps to the approach position. We are proposing this AD to prevent failure of the flap system, which could result in an asymmetrical flap condition. This condition could result in loss of control.

Airworthiness Directives; Eurocopter Deutschland GmbH Model MBB-BK 117 C-2 Helicopters
Document Number: 2010-26563
Type: Rule
Date: 2010-10-29
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This amendment supersedes an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for the Eurocopter Deutschland GmbH (ECD) Model MBB BK 117 C-2 helicopters. This amendment results from a mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) AD issued by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the European Community. The MCAI AD states there was an in- flight incident in which a dynamic weight broke off the control lever leading to considerable vibrations. A visual inspection revealed that the threaded bolt of the control lever had broken off. The actions specified by this AD are intended to prevent separation of dynamic weights, severe vibration, and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.
Airworthiness Directives; McDonnell Douglas Corporation Model MD-90-30 Airplanes
Document Number: 2010-26555
Type: Rule
Date: 2010-10-29
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. That AD currently requires a detailed inspection for certain defects of the upper fasteners of the aft mount support fittings of the left and right engines, and corrective actions if necessary. This new AD requires repetitive replacement of the upper row of fasteners of the support fittings of the engine aft mount with new fasteners; and repetitive general visual inspections for defects of the lower row fasteners (Row B) of the support fittings of the left and right engine aft mounts, and replacement of all clearance fit fasteners in the lower row if necessary. This AD was prompted by reports of loose, cracked, or missing fasteners in the aft mount support fitting of the left and right engines. We are issuing this AD to prevent loose, cracked, or missing fasteners in the engine aft mount support fittings, which could lead to separation of the support fittings from the pylon, and could result in separation of the engine from the airplane.
