Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Helicopters Deutschland GmbH Helicopters
Document Number: 2020-17682
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-08-13
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Helicopters Deutschland GmbH Model MBB-BK 117 D-2 helicopters.

Airworthiness Directives; General Electric Company Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2020-17594
Type: Proposed Rule

The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain General Electric Company (GE) GE90-110B1 and GE90-115B model turbofan engines. This proposed AD was prompted by the detection of melt-related freckles in the billet, which may reduce the life limits of certain high-pressure turbine (HPT) rotor stage 2 disks and certain rotating compressor discharge pressure (CDP) HPT seals. This proposed AD would require replacement of the affected HPT rotor stage 2 disks and rotating CDP HPT seals. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
