Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-28148
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-01-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 757-200, -200CB, and -300 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report of fatigue cracking found in a certain fuselage frame web. This AD requires inspection of the fuselage frame for existing repairs, repetitive inspections of the frame, and applicable repairs. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; ATR-GIE Avions de Transport Régional Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-28147
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-01-03
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 ATR42-500 and ATR72- 212A airplanes. This AD requires revising the airplane flight manual (AFM) to provide procedures to the flight crew for operational restrictions affecting in-flight use of the autopilot (AP) or yaw damper (YD) during dual-engine operation. This AD also provides an optional software modification, which would terminate the AFM requirement. This AD was prompted by flight test evaluations that revealed that after engine failure during AP or YD re-engagement, the YD unit commanded the rudder to return to neutral position, leading to inadequate balancing of the asymmetric power. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; ATR-GIE Avions de Transport Régional Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-28146
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-01-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain ATRGIE Avions de Transport R[eacute]gional Model ATR 42-500 airplanes and Model ATR 72-212A airplanes. This AD requires a one-time inspection for damage of the engine fire extinguishing pipes and incorrect pipe installation, and corrective actions if necessary. This AD was prompted by a report of damage to an engine fire extinguishing pipe due to chafing between the pipe and a fastener assembly; the chafing occurred as a result of incorrect installation of the pipe. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

Document Number: 2017-28303
Type: Notice
Date: 2018-01-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This notice contains a summary of a petition seeking relief from specified requirements of Federal Aviation Regulations. The purpose of this notice is to improve the public's awareness of, and participation in, the FAA's exemption process. Neither publication of this notice nor the inclusion or omission of information in the summary is intended to affect the legal status of the petition or its final disposition.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-28151
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-01-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 747-8 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of restricted movement of the right brake pedals after landing rollout. This proposed AD would require revising the airplane flight manual (AFM) by adding an autobrake system limitation. This proposed AD would also require modifying intercostal webs near a main entry door, which would terminate the AFM limitation. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-28149
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-01-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Bombardier, Inc., Model CL-600-2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701, & 702) airplanes, Model CL-600-2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705) airplanes, Model CL-600-2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900) airplanes, and Model CL- 600-2E25 (Regional Jet Series 1000) airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report that Belleville washers installed on the shimmy damper of the main landing gear may fail due to fatigue. This proposed AD would require revising the maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate a repetitive task specified in the maintenance review board report. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
