AD: General Electric Company Turbofan Engines

AD 2020-18-14 Prompted By A Report From The Manufacturer That A Subsurface Anomaly Was Found

The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all General Electric Company (GE) GE90-110B1 and GE90-115B model turbofan engines with a certain high-pressure turbine (HPT) rotor stage 2 disk installed. This AD was prompted by a report from the manufacturer that a subsurface anomaly was found on a HPT rotor stage 2 disk. This AD requires an ultrasonic inspection (USI) of the HPT rotor stage 2 disk and, depending on the result of the inspection, replacement of the HPT rotor stage 2 disk with a part eligible for installation. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products. This AD is effective October 21, 2020.

AD: Honeywell International Inc. Turbofan Engines

AD 2020-18-09 Prompted By A Report Of An Engine Experiencing An Uncontained Release Of LPT Blades

The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Honeywell International Inc. (Honeywell) ALF502L, ALF502L-2, ALF502L-2A, ALF502L-2C, ALF502L-3, ALF502R-3, ALF502R-3A, ALF502R-4, ALF502R-5, ALF502R-6, LF507-1F, and LF507-1H model turbofan engines. This AD was prompted by a report of an engine experiencing an uncontained release of low-pressure turbine (LPT) blades. This AD requires initial and repetitive visual inspections of the overspeed fuel solenoid valve assembly and the fuel filter outlet. Depending on the results of these inspections, the AD may require inspection of the adjacent fuel system tube assemblies as well as replacement or overhaul of the overspeed fuel solenoid valve assembly. This AD also requires periodic overhaul of the overspeed fuel solenoid valve assembly. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products. This AD is effective October 21, 2020.

ANN's Daily Aero-Linx (09.20.20)

Aero Linx: The Aircraft Engine Historical Society, Inc. The Aircraft Engine Historical Society, Inc. was organized in July of 2001 by a small group interested in preserving the rich history of all engines used in aerial propulsion, including rocket engines. The organizers hoped to achieve this goal by bringing together aircraft engine authors, collectors, operators, researchers and enthusiasts within a single non-profit organization. Since that time, the AEHS quarterly journal, Torque Meter, has been read by tens of thousands, and the AEHS web site has been visited by millions of people from around the world. Publication of Torque Meter was abandoned at the end of 2008 in favor of an all-web presence.
