Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-14416
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-07-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model CL-600-2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705), CL-600-2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900), and CL-600-2E25 (Regional Jet Series 1000) airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports that certain aft fuselage fittings are susceptible to cracking because they were not manufactured correctly. This AD requires replacement of those fittings with correctly manufactured parts, an eddy current inspection of certain fastener holes for cracking, and corrective actions if necessary. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-14415
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-07-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model BD-700-1A10 and BD-700-1A11 airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of low clearance between the variable frequency generator (VFG) power feeder cables and adjacent hydraulic lines and/or fuel lines in the aft equipment bay, which could cause chafing damage. This AD requires modifying the routing of the VFG power feeder cables and harnesses in the aft equipment bay. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-14413
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-07-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus SAS Model A350-941 airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report that the capability of the diagonal struts fitted at a certain frame is below the expected design specifications. This AD requires replacing the original diagonal struts at a certain frame with new, improved parts, as specified in an European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which is incorporated by reference. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-14412
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-07-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model DHC-8-102, -103, and -106 airplanes; Model DHC-8-200 series airplanes; and Model DHC-8-300 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by the reported loss of an elevator spring tab balance weight prior to takeoff. This AD requires inspecting the two balance weights and the two hinge arms on each elevator spring tab, and corrective actions if necessary. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Rockwell Collins, Inc. Flight Display System Application
Document Number: 2019-14307
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-07-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain part-numbered Rockwell Collins, Inc. (Rockwell Collins) FDSA- 6500 flight display system applications installed on airplanes. This AD imposes operating limitations on the traffic collision avoidance system (TCAS) by revising the Limitations section of the airplane flight manual (AFM) or AFM supplement (AFMS) and installing a placard on each aircraft primary flight display. This AD was prompted by a conflict between the TCAS display indications and aural alerts that may occur during a resolution advisory (RA) scenario. The FAA is issuing this AD to require actions that address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-14286
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-07-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus SAS Model A320-251N and -271N airplanes, and Model A321- 251N, -253N, -271N, and -272N airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports that the regulated bleed temperature was measured above the design target with a temperature regulation shift phenomenon, and investigation results show that incorrect temperature regulation can degrade pneumatic system components located downstream of the pre- cooler. This proposed AD would require uploading improved bleed monitoring computer (BMC) software (SW), 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; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-14285
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-07-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 737-100, -200, -200C, -300, -400, and -500 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of a fuel leak resulting from a crack on the left in-spar upper wing skin. This proposed AD would require repetitive surface high frequency eddy current (HFEC) inspections of the left and right upper wing skin, and repetitive general visual inspections of the upper wing skin in the adjacent rib bay areas for any crack, and applicable on-condition actions. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-14284
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-07-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2017-12-07, which applies to certain The Boeing Company Model 737-800, -900, and -900ER series airplanes. AD 2017-12-07 requires replacing the affected left temperature control valve and control cabin trim air modulating valve. Since the FAA issued AD 2017-12-07, the agency determined that the affected parts may be installed on airplanes outside the original applicability of AD 2017-12-07. This proposed AD would retain the requirements of AD 2017-12-07, expand the applicability to include those other airplanes, and add a new requirement for certain airplanes to identify and replace the affected parts. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
