Aviation Rulemaking Advisory Committee Meeting on Transport Airplane and Engine Issues
Document Number: 2011-5983
Type: Notice
Date: 2011-03-15
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This notice announces a public meeting of the FAA's Aviation Rulemaking Advisory Committee (ARAC) to discuss transport airplane and engine (TAE) issues.
Airworthiness Directives; Dassault-Aviation Model FALCON 7X Airplanes
Document Number: 2011-5899
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-03-15
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 DC-8-11, DC-8-12, DC-8-21, DC-8-31, DC-8-32, DC-8-33, DC-8-41, DC-8-42, and DC-8-43 Airplanes; DC-8-50 Series Airplanes; DC-8F-54 and DC-8F-55 Airplanes; DC-8-60 Series Airplanes; DC-8-60F Series Airplanes; DC-8-70 Series Airplanes; and DC-8-70F Series Airplanes
Document Number: 2011-5898
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-03-15
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Model DC-8-11, DC-8-12, DC-8-21, DC-8-31, DC-8-32, DC-8-33, DC- 8-41, DC-8-42, and DC-8-43 airplanes, DC-8-50 series airplanes, DC-8F- 54 and DC-8F-55 airplanes, DC-8-60 series airplanes, DC-8-60F series airplanes, DC-8-70 series airplanes, and DC-8-70F series airplanes. This proposed AD would require repetitive high frequency eddy current or repetitive low frequency eddy current inspections for cracks on the area around certain fasteners of the access opening doubler on the left and right wing center spar lower cap, and repair, if necessary. This proposed AD results from reports that cracks in the center spar lower cap and, in some cases, the web of the spar, have been found at stations Xrs=168.00, Xrs=251.00, and Xrs=358.00. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct cracks in the area around certain fasteners of the access opening doubler on the left and right wing center spar lower cap, which could compromise the structural integrity of the wing structure.
