Federal Aviation Administration August 3, 2020 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-16728
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-08-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus SAS Model A320-214, -216, -231, -232, -233, -251N, and - 271N airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report that following the installation of a second cargo fire extinguishing bottle, insufficient clearance between the cargo compartment fire extinguishing pipes was found. This AD requires inspection and modification of the cargo compartment fire extinguishing pipes, and on-condition actions if necessary, as specified in a European Union 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: 2020-16727
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-08-03
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 a report that the anti-fretting coating on the piston rods of certain ram air turbine (RAT) deployment actuators may have been incorrectly applied. This AD requires a review of airplane maintenance records or an inspection of the RAT deployment actuator to determine the serial number and, depending on the findings, replacement with an upgraded RAT deployment actuator. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Dassault Aviation Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-16629
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-08-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2019-23-03, which applies to certain Dassault Aviation Model FALCON 900EX airplanes. AD 2019-23-03 requires revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new or more restrictive maintenance requirements and/or airworthiness limitations. Since the FAA issued AD 2019-23-03, the FAA has determined that new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations are necessary. This proposed AD would continue to require those maintenance or inspection program revisions, and would also require revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate additional 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.
