Description: National Aeronautics and Space Administration

Armstrong Flight Research Center

Office of Procurement

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) operates a Douglas (Boeing) DC-8-72 as an airborne science laboratory called the DC-8. The DC-8 project owns four (4) CFM56-2-C1 engines as spares (one each of which is in current configuration and in current airworthiness status). In support of the DC-8 science project, NASA/AFRC has a requirement to perform a one-time maintenance inspection for configuration compatibility and to assess the airworthiness status on three (3) each of the four DC-8 CFM56-2-C1 engines. The overall objective of the requirement is to have the three (3) currently non-airworthy engines assessed for proper interfaces and configuration to facilitate installation on the DC-8; and to also include a detailed engine records review to identify any and all inspection/maintenance items required and/or currently due before operation of the engines. The detailed records inspection is to include a report on component time remaining and recommend inspections, maintenance/repairs, service letters, service bulletins, and airworthiness directives to be complied with in order to bring engines to airworthiness. The assessment for compatibility and engine records review for airworthiness shall be performed at the NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center facility located at Edwards Air Force Base, California. Subject Engine Information: CFM56-2-C1 Engine # 1 S/N 692477 Engine # 2 S/N 692539 Engine # 3 S/N 693293 In accordance with the Attachment A -- Statement of Work (SOW), the Contractor shall comply with the technical requirements delineated in Sections 2.0 Objectives, 3.0 Scope, 4.0 Tasks, and 5.0 Deliverables.
