AD: General Electric Company (GE) CF6 Turbofan Engines

AD NUMBER: 2011-23-04

MANUFACTURER: General Electric Company (GE) CF6 Turbofan Engines
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2011-23-04
ACTION: Final rule

SUMMARY: The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for the engines identified above. That AD currently requires initial and repetitive visual inspections of the forward engine mount assembly side links for cracks, stripping and reapplying the Sermetel W coating on the side links at every exposure of the side link. This new AD requires those same inspections, stripping and reapplying the Sermetel W coating, and adds two part numbers to the applicability. This AD was prompted by a review of the inspection program, which revealed that GE had omitted two affected side link part numbers from the applicability. The FAA is issuing this AD to prevent failure of the side links and possible engine separation from the airplane.

DATES: This AD is effective December 12, 2011.

FMI: AD
