Airworthiness Directives; ATR-GIE Avions de Transport Régional Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-26949
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-12-18
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain ATR-GIE Avions de Transport R[eacute]gional Model ATR42-300 and -500 airplanes and Model ATR72-202 and -212A airplanes. This AD requires identifying the serial number of the dual distributor valve (DDV), and replacement of affected DDVs. This AD was prompted by an investigation performed on a failed DDV that revealed a nonconformity of crimping on an internal valve. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Dassault Aviation Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-26841
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-12-18
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Dassault Aviation Model FALCON 2000EX airplanes. This AD was prompted by a quality review of delivered airplanes, which identified a manufacturing deficiency of some engine air inlet anti-ice ``piccolo'' tubes. This AD requires inspecting each anti-ice ``piccolo'' tube assembly of certain engine air inlets for discrepancies, and doing corrective actions if necessary. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes

We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus Model A330-200 Freighter, -200, and -300 series airplanes; and Airbus Model A340-200, -300, -500, and -600 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report that the trimmable horizontal stabilizer actuator (THSA) might not function as intended after failure of the primary load path. This AD requires repetitive detailed visual inspections for discrepancies of the THSA upper attachments and no-back housing. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-26834
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-12-18
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 737-100, -200, -200C, -300, -400, and -500 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of cracking in the webs of the stub beams at certain fuselage stations. These cracks are the result of fatigue caused by cyclical loading from pressurization, wing loads, and landing loads. This AD requires repetitive inspections for cracking of the webs of the stub beams at certain fuselage stations, and applicable on-condition actions. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
