We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Fiberglas-Technik Rudolf Lindner GmbH & Co. KG (type certificates formerly held by GROB-WERKE GMBH & CO KG and BURKHART GROB LUFT- UND RAUMFAHRT GmbH & CO KG) Models G102 STANDARD ASTIR III, G102 CLUB ASTIR III, G102 CLUB ASTIR IIIb, G103 TWIN II, G103A TWIN II ACRO, G103C TWIN III ACRO, and G 103 C Twin III SL gliders. This AD revises AD 2014-15- 02, which required inspection of the rudder control unit for installation of plastic cable pulleys and replacement of plastic cable pulleys with aluminum cable pulleys. This AD retains the actions of AD 2014-15-02 but clarifies the suffixes of serial numbers (S/Ns) in paragraph (c) Applicability. This AD was prompted by reports of plastic control cable pulleys developing cracks due to aging, which could lead to breaking of the pulley and potentially jamming the rudder control unit, possibly resulting in loss of control. We are issuing this AD to require actions to address the unsafe condition on these products.

Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-10-23
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Grob-Werke Models G115EG and G120A airplanes. This proposed AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as a defective starter solenoid. We are issuing this proposed AD to require actions to address the unsafe condition on these products.

Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-10-23
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model DHC-8-400 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of hydraulic fluid loss from the reservoir of the main landing gear's (MLG's) alternate extension system. This proposed AD would require inspection for correct assembly of the MLG's alternate extension system reservoir lid, and corrective action if necessary. We are proposing this AD to, in the event of a failure of the primary MLG extension system, prevent failure of the alternate MLG extension system to fully extend the MLG into a down-and-locked position, which could result in collapse of both MLG during touchdown.

Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Beechcraft Corporation (Type Certificate Previously Held by Hawker Beechcraft Corporation; Raytheon Aircraft Company; Beech Aircraft Corporation) Model 400, 400A, 400T, and MU-300 airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report of a failure of the Acme nut threads in a pitch trim actuator (PTA). This AD requires an inspection to determine if PTAs having a certain serial number and part number are installed, and replacement if they are installed. This AD also requires repetitive replacements of PTAs with new PTAs or certain overhauled PTAs. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the Acme nut threads in the PTA, which could lead to loss of control of pitch trim and reduced controllability of the airplane.

We are superseding airworthiness directives (ADs) 90-26-01, 91-20-02, and 2009-05-02 for all General Electric Company (GE) CF6-80C2 and CF6-80E1 series turbofan engines. This AD retains the requirements of those ADs and requires removal of additional fuel manifold part numbers (P/Ns), additional repetitive inspections, replacement as required of certain fuel manifold P/Ns and tube (block) clamps, and replacement of loop clamps. This AD was prompted by a report of an under-cowl fire caused by a manifold high-pressure fuel leak, and several additional reports of fuel leaks. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the fuel manifold, which could lead to uncontrolled engine fire, engine damage, and damage to the airplane.

Document Number: 2014-25023
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-10-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2011-19- 04, for all Airbus Model A318, A319, A320, and A321 series airplanes. AD 2011-19-04 currently requires repetitive inspections of the left- hand and right-hand inboard and outboard elevator servo-control rod eye-ends for cracking, and corrective actions if necessary. Since we issued AD 2011-19-04, we have determined that certain elevator servo- control parts that do not conform to the approved type design have been installed and may have the potential of cracks in the rod eye-end. This proposed AD would also require an inspection to determine if certain elevator servo-control parts are installed, and replacement if necessary. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct rod eye-end cracking, which could result in an uncontrolled elevator surface and consequent reduced control of the airplane.

We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2014-06- 08, for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model DHC-8-100, -200, and -300 series airplanes. AD 2014-06-08 currently requires repetitive functional checks of the nose and main landing gear, and corrective actions if necessary; and also provides optional terminating action modification for the repetitive functional checks. Since we issued AD 2014-06-08, we have determined that the optional terminating action modification is necessary to address the identified unsafe condition. This proposed AD would also require the terminating action modification. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct a false down-and-locked landing gear indication, which, on landing, could result in possible collapse of the landing gear.

Document Number: 2014-24557
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-10-16
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus Model A318, A319, and A321 series airplanes; and Model A320-211, -212, -214, -231, -232, and -233 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of wear of the trimmable horizontal stabilizer actuator (THSA). This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections of the THSA for damage, and replacement if necessary; and replacement of the THSA after reaching a certain life limit. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct wear on the THSA, which would reduce the remaining life of the THSA, possibly resulting in premature failure and consequent reduced control of the airplane.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is considering a proposal to authorize the release and exchange of approximately 7.231 acres of the airport property at the Acadiana Regional Airport, New Iberia LA, owned by the New Iberia Parish. The Parish is proposing a land swap to exchange this 7.231 acre parcel for another parcel of approximately 10.548 acres. The acreage being released is not needed for aeronautical use as currently identified on the Airport Layout Plan. The new proposed parcel will be used for the Acadiana Regional Airport, New Iberia LA, Access Road project from Louisiana Highway 675 (Jefferson Island Road) to Louisiana Highway 3212 (Northwest Bypass). The acreage being released comprising this parcel was originally acquired in 1970 when the Parish governing body petitioned the U.S. government for release of 2,100 acres of previously the Naval Air Station New Iberia property for civil aviation use through the General Services Administration excess land disposal process. In exchange for the 7.231 acres the airport will receive a new parcel of land described above for the Acadiana Regional Airport, New Iberia LA, Access Road project. The 7.231 acre parcel (Tract 14) is Zoned ``I-1: Industrial'' and has access to LA Highway 3212 (Prairie Road) and is being proposed to be swapped for approximately 10.548 acres (Tract 13) Zoned ``A-1: Agricultural''. The appraised fair market value of the proposed 7.231 acres parcel is $64,000, the fair market value of the proposed acquired parcel is $58,000. The difference of $6,000 in fair market value between Tract 14 and Tract 13 will be compensated by the Iberia Parish Council to the Iberia Airport Authority to accommodate FAA auditing standards and requirements to prevent the potential for ``diversion of funds (assets)''. A Phase I, Environmental Site Assessment was conducted and published on April 14, 2014 resulting in the assessment that did not reveal any evidence of Recognized Environmental Conditions (RECs) in connection with the new acquired property. This action and the affected properties have been evaluated by the Department of the Army, New Orleans District, Corps of Engineers, the State Office of Historic Preservation, Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism, and the Louisiana Ecological Services Office with a determination of an activity that would not negatively affect any wetland subject to Corps' jurisdiction, historical properties or threatened or endangered species respectively. Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the disposal of the subject property nor a determination of eligibility for grant-in-aid funding from the FAA. The disposition of proceeds (or compensation) from the disposal of the airport property will be in accordance with FAA's Policy and Procedures Concerning the Use of Airport Revenue, published in the Federal Register on February 16, 1999. In accordance with section 47107(c)(2)(B) of title 49, United States Code, this notice is required to be published in the Federal Register 30 days before modifying the land-use assurance that requires the property to be used for an aeronautical purpose and concurring with the proposed land swap.

We are revising an earlier proposed airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation (Sikorsky) Model S-61A, D, E, L, N, NM (serial number 61454), R, and V; Croman Corporation Model SH-3H, Carson Helicopters, Inc., Model S-61L; Glacier Helicopters, Inc. Model CH-3E; Robinson Air Crane, Inc. Model CH-3E, CH-3C, HH-3C, and HH-3E; and Siller Helicopters Model CH-3E and SH-3A helicopters. This SNPRM is prompted by comments received in response to a previous SNPRM and a reevaluation of the relevant data. This SNPRM retains the proposed actions in the previous SNPRM, provides an increased estimated cost of the main rotor shaft (MRS) replacement, and clarifies some of the language in the Required Actions section of the AD. The proposed actions are intended to prevent MRS structural failure, loss of power to the main rotor, and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.
