Federal Aviation Administration June 13, 2013 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce Deutschland Ltd & Co KG Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2013-14034
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-06-13
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Rolls-Royce Deutschland Ltd & Co KG (RRD) model Tay 650-15 turbofan engines. This proposed AD was prompted by excessive deterioration of the high-pressure (HP) air bleed valve operating mechanism. This proposed AD would require a one-time inspection of the HP air bleed valve operating mechanism and, depending on findings, corrective action. We are proposing this AD to prevent multiple fan blade failure, which could result in uncontained engine failure and damage to the airplane.
