Airworthiness Directives; Gulfstream Aerospace LP Airplanes; Correction
Document Number: 2021-20404
Type: Rule
Date: 2021-09-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is correcting an airworthiness directive (AD) that was published in the Federal Register. That AD applies to certain Gulfstream Aerospace LP Model Gulfstream G280 airplanes. As published, the document number of the Civil Aviation Authority of Israel (CAAI) AD specified in the preamble and regulatory text is incorrect. This document corrects that error. In all other respects, the original document remains the same.
Airworthiness Directives; Pratt & Whitney Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2021-20365
Type: Rule
Date: 2021-09-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Pratt & Whitney PW1500G and PW1900G series turbofan engines with a certain high-pressure turbine (HPT) 1st-stage hub or HPT rotor 1st- stage blade retaining plate installed. This AD was prompted by a report from the manufacturer who determined that the HPT 1st-stage hub and HPT rotor 1st-stage blade retaining plate fail to meet the published life- cycle limits for each part. This AD requires removal and replacement of the HPT 1st-stage hub and HPT rotor 1st-stage blade retaining plate prior to reaching certain cycle limits. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
