AD: International Aero Engines AG Turbofan Engines

AD NUMBER: 2012-09-09

PRODUCT: All International Aero Engines AG (IAE) V2500-A1, V2525-D5 and V2528-D5 turbofan engines, and certain serial numbers (S/Ns) of IAE V2522-A5, V2524-A5, V2527-A5, V2527E-A5, V2527M-A5, V2530-A5, and V2533-A5 turbofan engines.
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2012-09-09
ACTION: Final Rule

SUMMARY: The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. That AD currently requires initial and repetitive ultrasonic inspections (USIs) of certain high-pressure compressor (HPC) stage 3 to 8 drums, and replacement of drum attachment nuts.

This new AD expands the affected population for initial and repetitive inspections of the HPC stage 3 to 8 drum, introduces an eddy current inspection (ECI) procedure, and requires additional cleaning and repetitive USI of some HPC stage 3 to 8 drums.

The FAA is issuing this AD to prevent uncontained failure of the HPC stage 3 to 8 drum, which could result in damage to the airplane.

DATES: This AD is effective June 27, 2012.

FMI: AD
