Airworthiness Directives; Diamond Aircraft Industries Airplanes
Document Number: 2013-22570
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-09-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Diamond Aircraft Industries Model DA 40 and DA 40 F Airplanes. 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 fatigue strength found in the aft main spar does not ensure unlimited lifetime structural integrity. We are issuing this proposed AD to require actions to address the unsafe condition on these products.

Airworthiness Directives; the Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2013-22414
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-09-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 767-200, -300, -300F, and -400ER series airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of cracked and corroded nuts on an outboard flap support rib. This AD requires, for certain airplanes, repetitive inspections of the cap seal for damaged sealant on nuts common to certain outboard flap support ribs, and related investigative and corrective actions if necessary. For certain other airplanes, this AD also requires repetitive inspections of the cap seal for damaged sealant on nuts common to certain outboard flap support ribs, related investigative and corrective actions if necessary, and if necessary, a detailed inspection to determine the nut type installed in the outboard flap support rib and corrective actions. This AD also provides terminating action for the repetitive inspections under certain conditions. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct cracked and corroded nuts and bolts and the installation of incorrect nuts on certain outboard flap support ribs, which could lead to additional nut and bolt damage in the joint, result in loss of an outboard flap, and adversely affect continued safe flight and landing of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2013-22408
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-09-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding airworthiness directive (AD) 2010-20-08, which applied to certain The Boeing Company Model 747-100, 747-100B, 747-100B SUD, 747-200B, 747-200C, 747-200F, 747-300, 747-400, 747-400D, 747-400F, and 747SR series airplanes. AD 2010-20-08 required repetitive inspections to find cracking of the web, strap, inner chords, inner chord angle of the forward edge frame of the number 5 main entry door cutouts; the frame segment between stringers 16 and 31; repair if necessary; and repetitive inspections for cracking of repairs. This new AD expands the previous fuselage areas that are inspected for cracking. This AD was prompted by multiple reports of cracking outside of the previous inspection areas and a report of a crack that initiated at the aft edge of the inner chord rather than initiating at a fastener location. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct such cracks, which could cause damage to the adjacent body structure and could result in depressurization of the airplane in flight.
Airworthiness Directives; Eurocopter France Helicopters
Document Number: 2013-22295
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-09-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Eurocopter France (Eurocopter) Model AS350 and AS355 helicopters, to require inspecting for a crack in the control lever attachment yokes, and if needed, replacing the tail rotor gearbox (TGB). This AD is prompted by improper casting of TGB casing assemblies, which may lead to cracking. A crack in the control lever attachment yokes could cause a loss of tail rotor pitch control, and consequently, loss of control of the helicopter.
