 General Electric CF6-50 Engines
General, Electric Company, the owner of Type Certificate No. E23EA-1 for the Model CF6 engine, has filed an application to amend that type certificate to include the Model CF6-50 engine.
The certification basis for the General Electric Model CF6 engine as incorporated in its type certificate, which is also applicable to the amended type certificate, is Part 33, effective February, 1, 1965, and Amendments 33-1, 33-2, and 33-3, and Special Condition No. 33-9-EA-4.
The General Electric Model CF6-50 engine is a growth version of the Model CF6-engine and will incorporate mayor changes to the Model CF6 type design, including a high bypass ratio due to unusually large diameter fan blades which produce an unusually large ratio between the largest and the smallest rotor blades in the engine.

 General Electric CF6
The CF6 high-bypass turbofan was based on the TF39 and was designed to power the McDonnell Douglas DC-10 and Lockheed L-1011.
The DC-10 was launched with the CF6; however, the Lockheed went with the Rolls-Royce RB.211.
The CF6 is known as the F103 by the U.S. military.

 General Electric Company CF6-50, -80A1/A3, and -80C2A
SUMMARY: This amendment adopts a new airworthiness directive (AD), applicable to General Electric Company (GE) CF6-50, -80A1/A3, and -80C2A series turbofan engines installed on Airbus A300 and A310 series airplanes, that requires initial and repetitive thrust reverser inspections and checks, and allows extended repetitive inspection intervals if an optional double p-seal configuration is installed.
Revision 3 of SB No. 78-1002 includes inspections of electrical cables, the aft frame, and the ball screw housing that are not included in earlier revisions.
One commenter states that airplanes that have not had components removed, replaced, or modified which could alter the actuation system rigging, or that have undergone previous health check inspections, should not be required to have the fan reverser operational check portion of the initial inspection performed.

 New cure found for CF6-50 problems-09/01/2001-Flight International
Operators of General Electric CF6-50 engines are expected to be given new options to meet a forthcoming US Federal Aviation Administration airworthiness directive (AD) which will call for corrective actions to the engine's low pressure turbine (LPT) nozzle locks.
The value of General Electric stock fell nearly 9% in a few hours earlier this month amid news reports about problems with the engine, which powers nearly 2,000 airliners worldwide.
This follows the uncontained failure of a CF6 engine on a US Airways Boeing 767 in September.

Transmitted as follows is emergency airworthiness directive (AD) 2002-08-51, for the attention of all owners and operators of Airbus Model A300 B2 and B4 series airplanes equipped with General Electric CF6-50 engines.
Model A300 B2 and B4 series airplanes equipped with General Electric CF6-50 engines have the same nacelle and thrust reverser system as the airplane on which the event described previously occurred.
The FAA is planning to issue an airworthiness directive similar to this one, to require revising the AFM and deactivating the thrust reversers under certain conditions on those airplanes.

The General Electric TF39 and CF6 are a family of high-bypass turbofan engines.
General Electric intends to replace the CF6 family with the GEnx, which will have an entry into service date of 2008.
This initial version of the CF6 comprises a single stage fan, with one core booster stage, driven by a 5-stage LP (low pressure) turbine, supercharging a 16-stage HP (high pressure) axial compressor driven by a 2-stage HP turbine; the combustor is annular and exhaust separate jets.

This proposed AD would require modifying the airplane and the engine/nacelle to install a third line of defense, in accord with a manufacturer report, against inadvertent deployment of the thrust reverser in flight.
This proposed AD would also require two other actions that must be accomplished before or concurrently with the modification: installing a structural change in the fan cowl to avoid interference; and installing a dedicated, shielded electrical circuit.

General Electric and P&W formed the Engine Alliance and designed the GP7200 turbofan to power the stretched 747.
At the time of its launch, the term "jumbo jet" had already been coined by the media to describe a general class of new wide-bodied airliners then being developed, including the Lockheed L-1011 TriStar and McDonnell Douglas DC-10.
Boeing was quite keen to discourage the media and the public using the term "jumbo jet" for the 747, but their efforts were in vain, and now the term is synonymous with the 747.

On 07 September 1997, a Canadian Airlines International Boeing 767-300ER was at the start of its take-off from Beijing, China to Vancouver, British Columbia, when the left engine had an uncontained failure of the high pressure compressor (HPC).
In order to advance aviation safety in the most expeditious manner, the NTSB, in consultation with the TSB, decided to issue safety recommendations concerning the General Electric CF6-50 and -80 series jet engines in the United States.
The HPC case was ruptured and portions of the disk had separated from the spool, exited the engine, and broke into three pieces, all of which were recovered.

This means that although many A300B4s are not legally required to comply with the new regulation, they can be operated in airports with strict noise restriction as they will in fact be compliant with the new requirements.
