AD: Honeywell International Inc. Turbofan Engines

AD 2020-18-09 Prompted By A Report Of An Engine Experiencing An Uncontained Release Of LPT Blades

The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Honeywell International Inc. (Honeywell) ALF502L, ALF502L-2, ALF502L-2A, ALF502L-2C, ALF502L-3, ALF502R-3, ALF502R-3A, ALF502R-4, ALF502R-5, ALF502R-6, LF507-1F, and LF507-1H model turbofan engines.

This AD was prompted by a report of an engine experiencing an uncontained release of low-pressure turbine (LPT) blades. This AD requires initial and repetitive visual inspections of the overspeed fuel solenoid valve assembly and the fuel filter outlet. Depending on the results of these inspections, the AD may require inspection of the adjacent fuel system tube assemblies as well as replacement or overhaul of the overspeed fuel solenoid valve assembly. This AD also requires periodic overhaul of the overspeed fuel solenoid valve assembly. 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 Honeywell ALF502L, ALF502L-2, ALF502L-2A, ALF502L-2C, ALF502L-3, ALF502R-3, ALF502R-3A, ALF502R-4, ALF502R-5, ALF502R-6, LF507-1F, and LF507-1H model turbofan engines. The NPRM published in the  Federal Register on May 4, 2020 (85 FR 26375). The NPRM was prompted by a report of an engine experiencing an uncontained release of LPT blades. The NPRM proposed to require initial and repetitive visual inspections of the overspeed fuel solenoid valve assembly and the fuel filter outlet. Depending on the results of these inspections, the NPRM proposed to require inspection of the adjacent fuel system tube assemblies as well as replacement or overhaul of the overspeed fuel solenoid valve assembly. The NPRM also proposed to require periodic overhaul of the overspeed fuel solenoid valve assembly. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
