Federal Aviation Administration December 14, 2010 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; Saab AB, Saab Aerosystems Model SAAB 2000 Airplanes
Document Number: 2010-31378
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-12-14
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:
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Model 747 Airplanes
Document Number: 2010-31375
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-12-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to supersede an existing airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to all Model 747 airplanes. The existing AD currently requires repetitive inspections to detect damage of the sleeving and wire bundles of the boost pumps of the numbers 1 and 4 main fuel tanks, and of the auxiliary tank jettison pumps (if installed); replacement of any damaged sleeving with new sleeving; and repair or replacement of any damaged wires with new wires. For airplanes on which any burned wires are found, the existing AD also requires an inspection to detect damage of the conduit, and replacement of any damaged conduit with a serviceable conduit. This proposed AD would reduce the initial compliance time and repetitive inspection interval in the existing AD. This proposed AD results from fleet information indicating that the repetitive inspection interval in the existing AD is too long because excessive chafing of the sleeving continues to occur much earlier than expected between scheduled inspections. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct abrasion of the Teflon sleeving and wires in the bundles of the fuel boost pumps for the numbers 1 and 4 main fuel tanks and of the auxiliary tank jettison pumps (if installed), which could result in electrical arcing between the wires and aluminum conduit and consequent fire or explosion of the fuel tank.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Model 767 Series Airplanes
Document Number: 2010-31371
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-12-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to supersede an existing airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to all Model 767 airplanes. The existing AD currently requires repetitive inspections to detect discrepancies of the wiring and surrounding Teflon sleeves of the fuel tank boost pumps and override/jettison pumps; replacement of the sleeves with new sleeves, for certain airplanes; and repair or replacement of the wiring and sleeves with new parts, as necessary. This proposed AD would reduce the initial compliance time and repetitive inspection interval in the existing AD. This proposed AD results from fleet information indicating that the repetitive inspection interval in the existing AD is too long because excessive chafing of the sleeving continues to occur much earlier than expected between scheduled inspections. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct chafing of the fuel pump wire insulation and consequent exposure of the electrical conductor, which could result in electrical arcing between the wires and conduit and consequent fire or explosion of the fuel tank.
