PROPOSED RULES

Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce Corporation Turbofan Engines [FR DOC# 2013-19162] SUMMARY: We propose to supersede an existing airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to certain Rolls-Royce Corporation (RRC) AE 3007A series turbofan engines. The existing AD currently requires removing certain high-pressure turbine (HPT) stage 2 wheels, or performing inspections on them, and reduces their approved life limits. This proposed AD would clarify the AE 3007A turbofan engine model applicability, would further reduce the approved life limits of affected HPT stage 2 wheels, and would eliminate the inspections required by the existing AD. We are proposing this AD to prevent uncontained failure of the HPT stage 2 wheel, damage to the engine, and damage to the airplane.

 

RULES

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes [FR DOC# 2013-19023] SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus Model A318, A319, A320, and A321 series airplanes. This AD requires an inspection to determine airplane configuration and part numbers of the landing gear control interface unit and main landing gear (MLG)
door actuators; and, for affected airplanes, repetitive inspections of the opening sequence of the MLG door actuator, and replacement of the MLG door actuator if necessary. This AD also provides optional terminating action for the repetitive inspections. This AD was prompted by a report of a MLG failing to extend during landing, and a determination that a
certain configuration of landing gear control interface unit and actuators may result in masking of centralized fault display system messages that are necessary to mitigate risks associated with failure of MLG extension or down-locking. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct such a configuration, which could prevent the full extension or down-locking of the MLG, possibly resulting in MLG collapse during landing and consequent damage to the airplane and injury to occupants.

Amendment of Class D Airspace; Columbus, Rickenbacker International Airport, OH [FR DOC# 2013-18696] SUMMARY: This action amends Class D airspace at Rickenbacker International Airport, Columbus, OH.
