Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2013-10- 06, for all Airbus Model A330-200 Freighter, A330-200, A330-300, A340- 200, A340-300, A340-500, and A340-600 series airplanes. AD 2013-10-06 currently requires an inspection to identify the installed windshields, and replacement of any affected windshield. Since we issued AD 2013-10- 06, the manufacturer has identified a new batch of affected windshield parts on the airplane. This proposed AD would expand the inspection area to 15 additional windshields' serial numbers. We are proposing this AD to prevent significantly increased workload for the flightcrew, which could, under some flight phases and/or circumstances, constitute an unsafe condition.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model DHC-8-400 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of swing arm assemblies of engine fuel feed ejector pumps detaching from the outlet port of the engine fuel feed ejector pump and partially blocking the engine fuel feed line. This proposed AD would require installing a restrictor into the engine fuel feed line. We are proposing this AD to prevent blocked engine fuel flow and possible engine flameout.
