AD: Rolls Royce

AD NUMBER: 2006-17-12
MANUFACTURER: Rolls Royce
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2006-17-12
SUMMARY:
This amendment supersedes an existing airworthiness directive (AD), that is applicable to Rolls-Royce plc (RR) models RB211-535E4-37, RB211-535E4-37, RB211-535C-37, RB211-535E4-B-75, RB211-535E4-C, and RB211-22B-02 turbofan engines. That AD currently requires inspecting certain high pressure (HP) turbine discs, manufactured between 1989 and 1999, for cracks in the rim cooling air holes, and, if necessary, replacing the discs with serviceable parts. The manufacturer identified reaming-induced machining anomalies (RIMA) as the cause for the cracking. This amendment requires the same inspections, and reduces the compliance times for eddy current inspection (ECI) for the RR RB211-22B-02 engines. This amendment results from the manufacturer reducing their recommended compliance times for inspections on RB211-22B-02 engines. We are issuing this AD to prevent possible disc failure, which could result in an uncontained engine failure and damage to the airplane.
