Airworthiness Directives; General Electric Company Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2016-07377
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-04-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all General Electric Company (GE) CF6-80E1 turbofan engines with rotating compressor discharge pressure (CDP) seal, part number (P/N) 1669M73P02, installed. This AD was prompted by reports from the manufacturer of cracks in the teeth of two rotating CDP seals found during engine shop visits. This AD requires stripping of the coating, inspecting, and recoating the teeth of the affected rotating CDP seals. We are issuing this AD to prevent cracking of the CDP seal teeth, uncontained part release, damage to the engine, and damage to the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Technify Motors GmbH Reciprocating Engines
Document Number: 2016-07376
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-04-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Technify Motors GmbH (type certificate previously held by Thielert Aircraft Engines GmbH) TAE 125-02-99 and TAE 125-02-114 reciprocating engines. This AD requires removal of affected fuel feed pumps. This AD was prompted by reports of in-flight shutdowns on TAE 125-02 engines. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the fuel feed pump, damage to the engine, and damage to the airplane.
Research, Engineering and Development Advisory Committee Meeting
Document Number: 2016-07400
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-04-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is issuing this notice to advise the public of the Research, Engineering & Development Advisory Committee meeting.
Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce Deutschland Ltd & Co KG Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2016-07378
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-04-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Rolls-Royce Deutschland Ltd & Co KG (RRD) BR700-710A1-10, - 710A2-20, and -710C4-11 turbofan engines. This proposed AD was prompted by a seized low-pressure turbine (LPT) fuel shut-off pawl carrier caused by corrosion of the pawl carrier pivot pin. This proposed AD would require removing the pawl carrier pivot pins, part number (P/N) BRR17117, from service and replacing them with parts eligible for installation. We are proposing this AD to prevent failure of the fuel shut-off mechanism, uncontained part release, damage to the engine, and damage to the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; M7 Aerospace LLC Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-07371
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-04-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for M7 Aerospace LLC Models SA26-AT, SA26-T, SA226-AT, SA226-T, SA226-T(B), SA226-TC, SA227-AC (C-26A), SA227-AT, SA227-BC (C-26A), SA227-CC, SA227-DC (C-26B), and SA227-TT airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of multiple cracks in the steel horizontal tube of the cockpit control column. This proposed AD would require inspection of the cockpit control column horizontal tube with repair or replacement as necessary of the cockpit control column. We are proposing this AD to correct the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-07190
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-04-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 787-8 and 787-9 airplanes. This AD requires revising the airplane flight manual (AFM) to instruct the flightcrew to avoid abrupt flight control inputs in response to sudden drops in airspeed, and to reinforce the need to disconnect the autopilot before making any manual flight control inputs. This AD was prompted by reports indicating that in certain weather conditions with high moisture content or possible icing, erroneous low airspeed may be displayed to the flightcrew before detection and annunciation via engine-indicating and crew-alerting system (EICAS) messages. We are issuing this AD to ensure that the flightcrew avoids abrupt pilot control inputs in response to an unrealistic, sudden drop in displayed airspeed at high actual airspeed. Abrupt pilot control inputs in this condition could exceed the structural capability of the airplane.
