AD on High pressure turbine stage 2 wheels for Rolls Royce Engines

Friday, January 3rd, 2014

The FAA is superseding airworthiness directive (AD) 2010-19-01 for certain Rolls-Royce Corporation (RRC) AE 3007A series turbofan engines. AD 2010-19-01 required removing certain high-pressure turbine (HPT) stage 2 wheels, or performing inspections on them, and reduced their approved life limits. This new AD clarifies the AE 3007A turbofan engine model applicability, further reduces the approved life limits of affected HPT stage 2 wheels, and eliminates the inspections required by the existing AD. This AD was prompted by additional analysis that concluded that lower life limits for the affected HPT stage 2 wheels are necessary. They are issuing this AD 2013-26-06 to prevent uncontained failure of the HPT stage 2 wheel, damage to the engine, and damage to the airplane. DATES: This AD is effective February 7, 2014. pdf icon 2013-26-06.pdf

AD on High pressure intermediate pressure turbine bearing support oil feed tube outer heat shield Rolls Royce Tent Engines

Saturday, December 29th, 2012

The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) 2012-25-08 for certain serial numbers (S/Ns) of Rolls-Royce plc (RR) RB211-Trent 768-60, 772-60, and 772B-60 turbofan engines. This AD requires initial and repetitive on-wing or in-shop inspections of the high pressure/intermediate pressure (HP/IP) turbine bearing support oil feed tube outer heat shield. This AD also requires installation of a revised HP/IP turbine bearing support structure as terminating action to the repetitive inspections of the HP/IP turbine bearing support oil feed tube outer heat shield. This AD was prompted by a report of high oil consumption due to an oil leak from the HP/IP turbine bearing support oil feed tube. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the HP turbine disc, uncontained engine failure, and damage to the airplane.

DATES: This AD becomes effective January 10, 2013. They must receive comments on this AD by February 11, 2013.
