Federal Aviation Administration May 21, 2020 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Helicopters
Document Number: 2020-10936
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-05-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Airbus Helicopters Model AS332C, AS332C1, AS332L, AS332L1, AS332L2, and EC225LP helicopters. This AD requires revising the Rotorcraft Flight Manual (RFM) for your helicopter and either installing placards or removing the hoist arm. This AD was prompted by a failure of a right- hand (RH) side lateral sliding plug door (sliding door) to jettison. The actions of this AD are intended to address an unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Learjet Inc. Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-10915
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-05-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Learjet Inc. Model 60 airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report of a reverse thrust command accelerating the airplane instead of decelerating the airplane. The acceleration with reverse thrust commanded occurred when the thrust reverser doors were in the stowed position instead of the deployed position. This AD requires installing a thrust reverser (T/R) Voice Command Warning System (VCWS) to alert the crew of a T/R malfunction. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Helicopters
Document Number: 2020-10907
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-05-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is revising an earlier proposed airworthiness directive (AD) for Airbus Helicopters Model SA330J helicopters that proposed to require replacing certain left-hand (LH) and right-hand (RH) hydraulic pumps. The NPRM was prompted by reports that bolts that attach the cover of the hydraulic pump were broken. This action revises the NPRM by expanding the applicability, changing the proposed requirements, and correcting nomenclature. Since this imposes an additional burden over that proposed in the NPRM, the FAA is reopening the comment period to allow the public the chance to comment on these changes.
