Federal Aviation Administration March 22, 2017 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-05251
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-03-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are revising an earlier proposal to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2013-10-03 for all Airbus Model A330-200, -200 Freighter, and -300 series airplanes; and Model A340-200, -300, -500, and -600 series airplanes. This action revises the notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) by adding a replacement of certain main landing gear (MLG) with MLG that have an improved bogie beam. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products. Since these actions impose an additional burden over those proposed in the NPRM, we are reopening the comment period to allow the public the chance to comment on these proposed changes.
Airworthiness Directives; CFE Company Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2017-05242
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-03-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is withdrawing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). The NPRM proposed a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain CFE Company (CFE) turbofan engines that published in the Federal Register on January 5, 2017. The proposed action that published in the Federal Register on January 5, 2017 was a duplicate of an NPRM, Directorate Identifier 2016-NE-21-AD, that published in the Federal Register on January 3, 2017. Accordingly, we withdraw the proposed rule that published in the Federal Register on January 5, 2017.
Airworthiness Directives; BAE Systems (Operations) Limited Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-05163
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-03-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is correcting an airworthiness directive (AD) that published in the Federal Register. That AD applies to all BAE Systems (Operations) Limited Model 4101 airplanes. As published, the Product Identification line of the regulatory text contains an error. This document corrects that error. In all other respects, the original document remains the same.
Airworthiness Directives; Fokker Services B.V. Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-05161
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-03-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Fokker Services B.V. Model F28 Mark 0100 airplanes equipped with Rolls-Royce TAY 650-15 engines. This AD was prompted by reports of uncontained engine fan blade failures in Rolls-Royce TAY 650-15 engines. This AD requires installation of a caution placard in the flight compartment. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
