AD: General Electric Company Turbofan Engines

AD 2020-18-14 Prompted By A Report From The Manufacturer That A Subsurface Anomaly Was Found

The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all General Electric Company (GE) GE90-110B1 and GE90-115B model turbofan engines with a certain high-pressure turbine (HPT) rotor stage 2 disk installed.

This AD was prompted by a report from the manufacturer that a subsurface anomaly was found on a HPT rotor stage 2 disk. This AD requires an ultrasonic inspection (USI) of the HPT rotor stage 2 disk and, depending on the result of the inspection, replacement of the HPT rotor stage 2 disk with a part eligible for installation. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products. This AD is effective October 21, 2020.

Supplementary Information: The FAA issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 by adding an AD that would apply to all GE GE90-110B1 and GE90-115B model turbofan engines with a certain HPT rotor stage 2 disk installed. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on May 18, 2020 (85 FR 29676). The NPRM was prompted by a report from the manufacturer that a subsurface anomaly was found on a HPT rotor stage 2 disk. The NPRM proposed to require a USI of the HPT rotor stage 2 disk and, depending on the result of the inspection, replacement of the HPT rotor stage 2 disk with a part eligible for installation. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
