Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-13337
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-06-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus SAS Model A318 and A319 series airplanes; Model A320- 211, -212, -214, -216, -231, -232, and -233 airplanes; and Model A321- 111, -112, -131, -211, -212, -213, -231, and -232 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report that during a maintenance check, cracks were found in a stiffener of a certain lateral window frame. This proposed AD would require repetitive high frequency eddy current (HFEC) inspections for cracking of a stiffener of a certain lateral window frame, and applicable related investigative and corrective actions, as specified in a European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which will be incorporated by reference. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-13333
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-06-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus SAS Model A330-200 Freighter, A330-200, and A330-300 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a determination that new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations are necessary. This proposed AD would require revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Proposed Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace, and Establishment of Class E Airspace; Spokane, WA
Document Number: 2019-13291
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-06-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to modify Class D airspace, Class E surface area airspace, and establish Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Felts Field Airport, Spokane, WA. After a biennial review, the FAA found it necessary to amend existing airspace and establish new controlled airspace for the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at this airport. This action also would make a minor editorial change to the airspace designation and would replace the outdated term Airport/Facility Directory with the term Chart Supplement. The Class D and Class E surface areas would be extended to the Spokane International Airport Class C surface area on the southwest and expanded 1.2 miles on the northeast. The Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface would be established to provide airspace for aircraft transitioning to and from Felts Field airport.
Amendment of Class E Airspace; Monroe, GA
Document Number: 2019-13288
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-06-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action corrects a final rule published in the Federal Register on June 7, 2019, amending Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface in Monroe, GA. The legal description listed the airport name as Monroe-County Airport. The correct name is Monroe-Walton County Airport.
Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce plc Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2019-13194
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-06-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to supersede airworthiness directive (AD) 2016-24-08 which applies to all Rolls-Royce plc (RR) RB211-Trent 875- 17, RB211-Trent 877-17, RB211-Trent 884-17, RB211-Trent 884B-17, RB211- Trent 892-17, RB211-Trent 892B-17, and RB211-Trent 895-17 model turbofan engines. AD 2016-24-08 requires repetitive inspections of the engine upper fairing and repair or replacement of any fairing that fails inspection. Since the FAA issued AD 2016-24-08, RR has developed a modification of the engine upper bifurcation nose fairing assembly that terminates the inspection requirements of this AD. This proposed AD would continue the repetitive inspections until the terminating action is performed at the next engine shop visit. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Pratt & Whitney Canada Corp. Turboprop Engines
Document Number: 2019-13193
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-06-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Pratt & Whitney Canada Corp. (P&WC) PW150A turboprop engines. This proposed AD was prompted by a determination by the manufacturer that certain PW150A engine high-pressure (HP) centrifugal impellers may exhibit a material microstructure anomaly that has a potential to adversely affect the low cycle fatigue characteristics of the part. This proposed AD would require replacement of the affected HP centrifugal impellers. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Various Transport Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-13084
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-06-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for various transport airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of smoke and fumes in the flight deck. This proposed AD would require modification of certain universal serial bus (USB) receptacles located in the flight deck. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-13048
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-06-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus SAS Model A320-251N and A321-253N airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of cracks on the pylon block seals. This proposed AD would require replacement of the pylon block seals, as specified in a European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which will be incorporated by reference. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
