AD NUMBER: 2003-05-04
MANUFACTURER: Rolls Royce
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2003-05-04
SUMMARY: This amendment supersedes an existing airworthiness
directive (AD) that is applicable to Rolls-Royce Deutschland Ltd.
& Co KG (RRD) Model Tay 620-15 and
650-15 turbofan engines. That AD currently
requires initial and repetitive inspections of certain low pressure
(LP) fuel tubes. This amendment requires the same inspections and
adds two engine models to the applicability. Thisamendment is
prompted by a report that certain Tay 611-8 and
651-54 turbofan engines may use the same LP fuel
tube. The actions specified in this AD are intended to prevent a
dual-engine flameout due to fuel exhaustion, which could lead to
forced landing and possible damage to the airplane.
