AD NUMBER: 2005-23-09
MANUFACTURER: General Electric
SUBJECT: Airworthiness Directive 2005-23-09
FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for General
Electric Company (GE) CF6-80E1A1, -80E1A2, -80E1A3, -80E1A4, and
-80E1A4/B turbofan engines.
This AD requires initial and repetitive fluorescent-penetrant
inspections (FPI) of certain areas of high pressure compressor
(HPC) cases, part number (P/N) 1509M97G07 and P/N 2083M69G03.
This AD results from the discovery that HPC cases, P/N
1509M97G07 and P/N 2083M69G03, were inadvertently left out of the
Airworthiness Limitations Section (ALS), Chapter 05-21-02, of GE
Engine Manual, GEK 99376, Revision 17.
We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the HPC case aft
mount flange, due to cracking.
