AD NUMBER: 2011-26-08

MANUFACTURER: Rolls-Royce plc (RR) RB211-Trent 800 Series Turbofan Engines
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2011-26-08
ACTION: Final Rule

SUMMARY: The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Rolls-Royce plc (RR) RB211-Trent 800 Series Turbofan Engines.

The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as:

Fuel leaks from the engine due to damage to sections of the fan case low-pressure (LP) fuel tubes.

The FAA is issuing this AD to prevent engine fuel leaks, which could result in risk to the airplane.

DATES: This AD becomes effective January 24, 2012

FMI: AD
