Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-00700
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-01-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2017-12- 07, which applied to certain The Boeing Company Model 737-800, -900, and -900ER series airplanes. AD 2017-12-07 required replacing the affected left temperature control valve and control cabin trim air modulating valve. This AD retains the requirements of AD 2017-12-07, expands the applicability to include additional airplanes, and adds a new requirement for certain airplanes to identify and replace the affected parts. This AD was prompted by reports of in-flight failure of the left temperature control valve and control cabin trim air modulating valve. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-00448
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-01-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 727, 727C, 727-100, 727-100C, 727- 200, and 727-200F series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of nuisance stick shaker activation while the airplane accelerated to cruise speed at the top of climb. This proposed AD was also prompted by an investigation of those reports that revealed that the angle of attack (AOA) (also known as angle of airflow) sensor vanes could not prevent the build-up of ice, causing the AOA sensor vanes to become immobilized, which resulted in nuisance stick shaker activation. This proposed AD would require a general visual inspection of the AOA sensors for certain AOA sensors, and replacement of affected AOA sensors. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Embraer S.A. Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-00447
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-01-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Embraer S.A. Model ERJ 170 airplanes and Model ERJ 190-100 STD, -100 LR, -100 ECJ, -100 IGW, -200 STD, -200 LR, and -200 IGW airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a determination that certain main landing gear (MLG) aft pintle pins repaired using a sulphamate nickel plating have a life limit that is less than the certified life limit. This proposed AD would require a one-time records review and a general visual inspection (GVI) of the MLG aft pintle pins to determine if certain repairs were done, and replacement of certain MLG aft pintle pins with serviceable MLG aft pintle pins, as specified in an Ag[ecirc]ncia Nacional de Avia[ccedil][atilde]o Civil (ANAC) Brazilian AD, which will be incorporated by reference. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; ATR-GIE Avions de Transport Régional Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-00446
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-01-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain ATRGIE Avions de Transport R[eacute]gional Model ATR42 airplanes and Model ATR72 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of interference and chafing between a propeller brake hydraulic pipe and an electrical wire bundle bracket screw installed in the underwing box of the right-hand (RH) engine nacelle. This proposed AD would require a modification of the electrical wiring routing in the engine nacelles, a one-time detailed visual inspection (DVI) of the propeller brake hydraulic pipe and electrical wire bundle bracket screw head in the underwing box of the RH engine nacelle and, depending on findings, accomplishment of applicable corrective actions, as specified in a European Union 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; Saab AB, Support and Services (Formerly Known as Saab AB, Saab Aeronautics) Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-00445
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-01-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Saab AB, Support and Services Model SAAB 2000 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, as specified in a European Union 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.
