Proposed Rules

  • Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Model  CL–600–2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) Airplanes. 14 CFR Part 39 [Docket No. FAA–2010–1039; Directorate Identifier 2010–NM– 002–AD] RIN 2120–AA64. SUMMARY: We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above  that would supersede an existing AD. This proposed AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority  of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation  product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as: There has been numerous  reported failures of the Regional Jet engine TCGB [throttle control gearbox]  P/Ns: 2100140–003, 2100140–005 & 2100140–007. Some of these failures  have resulted in in-flight engine shutdowns. Post incident investigations revealed  that excessive wear within the engine TCGB could alter the rigging position or  cause the throttle to jam. With the rigging position altered, movement of the  throttle lever towards the idle position can result in throttle moving too close to  the fuel shut-off position, which potentially, can cause the engine to flame out. * *  * * * The proposed AD would require actions that are intended to address the  unsafe condition described in the MCAI. DATES: We must receive comments on this proposed AD by December 6, 2010.
  • Airworthiness Directives; Fokker Services B.V. Model  F.28 Mark 0070 and 0100 Airplanes. 14 CFR Part 39 [Docket No. FAA–2010–1038; Directorate Identifier 2009–NM– 250–AD] RIN 2120–AA64. SUMMARY: We propose to adopt a new
    airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This proposed AD  results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated  by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe  condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as: During a normal walkaround check on a F28 Mark 0100 aeroplane, a large crack  was discovered in the lower portion of the right (RH) MLG [main landing gear]  piston. The affected MLG unit had accumulated 7909 flight cycles (FC) at the  time of detection. * * * This condition, if not detected and corrected, could lead to  MLG failure, possibly resulting in loss of control of the aeroplane during the  landing roll-out. The proposed AD would require actions that are intended to  address the unsafe condition described in the MCAI. DATES: We must receive  comments on this proposed AD by December 6, 2010.
