AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of Transportation (DOT).

ACTION:

Final rule; correction.

SUMMARY:

The FAA is correcting a typographical error in an existing airworthiness directive (AD) that was published in the Federal Register on May 22, 2007 (72 FR 28597). The error resulted in a confusing compliance time. This AD applies to all Boeing Model 737-100, -200, -200C, -300, -400, and -500 series airplanes. This AD requires repetitive detailed inspections for damage of the electrical wire and sleeve that run to the fuel boost pump through a conduit in the fuel tank, and arcing damage of the conduit and signs of fuel leakage into the conduit; replacement of the sleeve with a new, smaller-diameter sleeve; and related investigative and corrective actions, as applicable.

DATES:

Effective June 6, 2007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On May 2, 2007, the FAA issued AD 2007-11-07, amendment 39-15064 (72 FR 28597, May 22, 2007), for all Boeing Model 737-100, -200, -200C, -300, -400, and -500 series airplanes. The AD requires repetitive detailed inspections for damage of the electrical wire and sleeve that run to the fuel boost pump through a conduit in the fuel tank, and arcing damage of the conduit and signs of fuel leakage into the conduit; replacement of the sleeve with a new, smaller-diameter sleeve; and related investigative and corrective actions, as applicable.

As published, paragraph (k) of AD 2007-11-07 reads “* * * Thereafter, repeat the detailed inspection at intervals not to exceed 15,000 flight cycles. * * *” The correct term, “flight hours” (not flight cycles), appears in all other compliance times cited in the AD, as intended.

No other part of the regulatory information has been changed; therefore, the final rule is not republished in the Federal Register.

The effective date of this AD remains June 6, 2007.
