Federal Aviation Administration June 25, 2019 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-13336
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-06-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2013-07-09, which applies to certain The Boeing Company Model 737-700, -700C, -800, and -900ER series airplanes, Model 747-400F series airplanes, and Model 767-200 and -300 series airplanes. AD 2013-07-09 requires a general visual inspection for affected serial numbers of the crew oxygen mask stowage box units, and replacement or re- identification as necessary. Since the FAA issued AD 2013-07-09, the agency has determined that the affected parts may be installed on airplanes outside the original applicability of AD 2013-07-09. This proposed AD would retain the requirements of AD 2013-07-09 and expand the applicability to include those other airplanes. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-13332
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-06-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus SAS Model A300 series airplanes; Airbus SAS Model A300 B4-600, B4-600R, and F4-600R series airplanes, and Model A300 C4-605R Variant F airplanes (collectively called Model A300-600 series airplanes); and Airbus SAS Model A310 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report indicating that the trimmable horizontal stabilizer (THS) actuator ball nut trunnion lower attachment was missing parts. This proposed AD would require a one-time detailed inspection of the THS actuator right-hand spherical bearing and retaining parts (bolt, tab washer, and end cap) for correct installation of the retaining parts and correct bolt position, and applicable corrective actions, as specified in an 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; Leonardo S.p.A. Helicopters
Document Number: 2019-13247
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-06-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Leonardo S.p.A. (type certificate previously held by Finmeccanica S.p.A., AgustaWestland S.p.A.) Model AW139 helicopters. This AD requires inspecting and altering the number 1 driveshaft (driveshaft). This AD was prompted by reports of scratches that were found on the driveshaft. The actions of this AD are intended to address an unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-13049
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-06-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 737-300, -400, and -500 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by fuel system reviews conducted by the manufacturer. This proposed AD would require applying sealant to the fasteners in the fuel tanks, replacing wire bundle clamps external to the fuel tanks and installing Teflon sleeving under the clamps. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
