Airworthiness Directives; the Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2013-18110
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-07-26
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 787-8 airplanes. This AD requires either removal or inspection of the Honeywell fixed emergency locator transmitter (ELT), and corrective action if necessary. This AD was prompted by a report of a fire involving a Honeywell fixed ELT. We are issuing this AD to prevent a fire in the aft crown of the airplane, or to detect and correct discrepancies within the ELT that could cause such a fire.

Critical Parts for Airplane Propellers; Correction
Document Number: 2013-17931
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-07-26
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is correcting a final rule published on January 18, 2013 (78 FR 4038). In that rule, the FAA established airworthiness standards for airplane propellers. That action required a safety analysis to identify a propeller critical part. Manufacturers would identify propeller critical parts, and establish engineering, manufacturing, and maintenance processes for propeller critical parts. An unintentional error was introduced in Sec. 35.15 when we revised paragraph (d). We did not intend to revise paragraph (d). This correction will add paragraph (d) to the end of paragraph (c), and restore the former paragraph (d).
Airworthiness Directives; Hartzell Propeller, Inc. Propellers
Document Number: 2013-17664
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-07-26
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Hartzell Propeller, Inc. propeller models HC-(1,D)2(X,V,MV)20-7, HC- (1,D)2(X,V,MV)20-8, and HC-(1,D)3(X,V,MV)20-8. This AD was prompted by failures of the propeller hydraulic bladder diaphragm and resulting engine oil leak. This AD requires replacement of the propeller hydraulic bladder diaphragm. We are issuing this AD to prevent propeller hydraulic bladder diaphragm rupture, loss of engine oil, damage to the engine, and loss of the airplane.
