Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2021-13932
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-06-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 787-8, 787-9, and 787-10 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report that during a fleet sampling inspection, cracks were found on the inner cylinder pivot pins of the left and right main landing gear (MLG) on one of the airplanes. This proposed AD would require repetitive lubrications of the left and right MLG truck beam and inner cylinder pivot joint, reviewing the maintenance program documentation to verify certain lubrication tasks are incorporated, doing repetitive inspections of the MLG inner cylinder pivot pins and inner cylinder bushings of the MLG truck beam and inner cylinder joint for any friction, heat damage, excessive wear, cracking and smearing of bushing material, and applicable on-condition actions. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2021-13931
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-06-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2019-03-26, which applies to certain The Boeing Company Model 737-600, -700, -700C, -800, -900, and -900ER series airplanes. AD 2019-03-26 requires modifying the passenger service units (PSUs) and life vest panels by replacing the existing inboard lanyard and installing two new lanyards on the outboard edge of the PSUs and life vest panels; measuring the distance between the hooks of the torsion spring of the lanyard assembly; replacing discrepant lanyard assemblies; and re- identifying serviceable lanyard assemblies. Since the FAA issued AD 2019-03-26, it has been determined that certain airplanes are listed in the wrong configuration and certain PSUs have not been correctly re- identified. This proposed AD would retain the requirements of AD 2019- 03-26, and, for certain airplanes, would require an inspection to determine if the re-identified PSU part number is correct, and further re-identification if necessary. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2021-13930
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-06-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2005-05-18, which applies to certain The Boeing Company Model 737-600, -700, -700C, -800, and -900 series airplanes. AD 2005-05-18 requires repetitive inspections for cracking of the webs of the aft pressure bulkhead at a certain body station, and corrective action if necessary. Since the FAA issued AD 2005-05-18, cracking was found in that inspection area on airplanes not identified in the applicability of AD 2005-05-18. This proposed AD would retain the requirements of AD 2005- 05-18, revise the applicability to include additional airplanes, and add an inspection for existing repairs on the newly added airplanes. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Mesa Del Rey Airport, CA
Document Number: 2021-13844
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-06-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to establish Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Mesa Del Rey Airport, King City, CA.

Airworthiness Directives; ATR-GIE Avions de Transport Régional Airplanes
Document Number: 2021-13782
Type: Rule
Date: 2021-06-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain ATR-GIE Avions de Transport R[eacute]gional Model ATR42-300, - 320, and -500 airplanes; and all Model ATR72-101, -102, -201, -202, - 211, -212, and -212A airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of defective seat tracks. This AD requires a detailed visual inspection of each affected part for deficiencies (sealant blockage and out of tolerance ligaments), and depending on findings, accomplishment of applicable corrective actions, 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; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2021-13781
Type: Rule
Date: 2021-06-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus SAS Model A330-200, A330-200 Freighter, A330-300, A340-200, and A340-300 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report that the auxiliary power unit (APU) aft fuel pump printed circuit board (PCB) varnish had deteriorated; the varnish is one of the layers of protection against development of an ignition source. This AD requires replacing each affected APU aft fuel pump, 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.
