Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce plc Turbojet Engines
Document Number: 2016-05319
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-03-10
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding airworthiness directive (AD) 2013-11-13 for all Rolls-Royce plc (RR) Viper Mk. 601-22 turbojet engines. AD 2013-11- 13 required reducing the life of certain critical parts. This AD adds two new engine models and additional engine parts to the applicability. This AD was prompted by a determination by RR that additional parts for the RR Viper Mk. 601-22 as well as additional engine models are affected. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of life-limited parts, which could lead to an uncontained part release, damage to the engine, and damage to the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Turbomeca S.A. Turboshaft Engines
Document Number: 2016-05318
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-03-10
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Turbomeca S.A. Arriel 2B, 2B1, 2C, 2C1, 2C2, 2D, 2E, 2S1, and 2S2 turboshaft engines. This AD requires inspection, and, depending on the results, removal of the engine accessory gearbox (AGB). This AD was prompted by a report of an uncommanded in-flight shutdown (IFSD) of an Arriel 2 engine caused by rupture of the 41-tooth gear, which forms part of the bevel gear in the engine AGB. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the engine AGB, which could lead to in-flight shutdown, damage to the engine, and damage to the aircraft.
