Airworthiness Directives; General Electric Company Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2013-07510
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-04-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for General Electric Company (GE) CF34-8C and CF34-8E turbofan engines with certain part numbers (P/N) of operability bleed valves (OBV) installed. This AD was prompted by three failure events of ring lock fuel fittings on the OBV. Two of those events led to an engine fire. This AD requires the affected OBVs be removed from service and replaced with OBVs eligible for installation. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of OBV ring lock fuel fittings, engine fuel leakage, uncontrolled fire, and damage to the airplane.
Modification of VOR Federal Airways V-68, V-76, V-194, and V-548 in the Vicinity of Houston, TX
Document Number: 2013-07472
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-04-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action amends VHF Omnidirectional Range (VOR) Federal airways V-68, V-76, V-194, and V-548 in the vicinity of Houston, TX. The FAA is taking this action to correct the airway descriptions contained in Part 71 to ensure they match the information contained in the FAA's aeronautical database and depicted on the associated aeronautical charts.
Airworthiness Directives; General Electric Company Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2013-07546
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-04-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain General Electric Company (GE) GE90-76B, -85B, -90B, -94B, - 110B1, and -115B turbofan engines. This proposed AD was prompted by multiple reports of failure of certain stage 1 high-pressure turbine (HPT) stator shrouds due to accelerated corrosion and oxidation. This proposed AD would require initial and repetitive on-wing borescope inspections (BSIs) for corrosion and oxidation, of the affected stage 1 HPT stator shrouds, and removal from service before further flight, if the parts fail the inspection. We are proposing this AD to prevent failure of the stage 1 HPT stator shrouds, resulting in in-flight shutdown of one or more engines, loss of thrust control, and damage to the airplane.
Interpretation of the Rest Requirements of Nonstop International Supplemental Operations
Document Number: 2013-07375
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-04-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action provides interested persons with the opportunity to comment on the FAA's draft interpretation regarding nonstop international supplemental operations scheduled for longer than 12 hours. Additionally, this draft interpretation discusses the appropriate international flight time limitations that would apply to the operation. As discussed in the draft interpretation, the FAA finds that the operation of such flights would be precluded under the flight time limitations of the ``U.S. mainland rules'' found in the supplemental flight and duty rules. However, the operation could be conducted under the ``international rules'' provisions of our regulations.
