Federal Aviation Administration February 14, 2020 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-02974
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-02-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2014-24- 07, which applied to certain Airbus SAS Model A318 series airplanes; Model A319-111, -112, -113, -114, -115, -131, -132, and -133 airplanes; A320-211, -212, -214, -231, -232, and -233 airplanes; and Model A321- 111, -112, -131, -211, -212, -213, -231, and -232 airplanes. AD 2014- 24-07 required repetitive rototest inspections for cracking; corrective actions if necessary; and modification of the torsion box, which terminates the repetitive inspections. This AD continues to require the actions in AD 2014-24-07, with certain revised compliance times, as specified in a European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which is incorporated by reference. This AD was prompted by a report of a crack found in the side box beam flange of the fuselage at the frame (FR) 43 level during a fatigue test campaign. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; General Electric Company Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2020-02865
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-02-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain General Electric Company (GE) GE90-110B1 and GE90-115B model turbofan engines. This AD was sent previously as an emergency AD to all known U.S. owners and operators of the GE GE90-110B1 and GE90-115B model turbofan engines with certain engine serial numbers. This AD requires the removal from service of the interstage seal, part number 2505M72P01 or 2448M33P01, from the affected engines. This AD was prompted by a recent event involving an uncontained high-pressure turbine (HPT) failure that resulted in an aborted takeoff. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
