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. This AD results from
mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by
an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an
unsafe condition on an aviation product.
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
The FAA is issuing this AD to prevent engine fuel leaks, which
could result in risk to the airplane.
