Amendment of Class E Airspace; Binghamton, NY
This action amends Class E airspace at Binghamton, NY. The development of multiple area navigation (RNAV) Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAP) for numerous airports within the Binghamton, NY geographical area with approved Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations and the resulting overlap of designated Class E-5 airspace have made this action necessary. This action consolidates the Class E-5 airspace designations for five airspace and one heliport and results in the rescission of the five Class E-5 descriptions through separate rulemaking action. The area will be depicted on aeronautical charts for pilot reference.
Establishment of Area Navigation Instrument Flight Rules Terminal Transition Routes (RITTR); Cincinnati, OH
This action establishes three Area Navigation Instrument Flight Rules Terminal Transition Routes (RITTR) in the Cincinnati, OH, terminal area. The FAA originally proposed to establish four routes as part of this action, but one route (T-212) was deleted because it did not meet RITTR design criteria and its short length would provide limited benefits. RITTR's are low altitude Air Traffic Service (ATS) routes, based on Area Navigation (RNAV), for use by aircraft having Instrument Flight Rules (IFR)-approved Global Positioning System (GPS)/ Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) equipment. The FAA is taking this action to enhance safety and facilitate the more flexible and efficient use of the navigable airspace in the Cincinnati terminal area.

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A320-111, -211, -212, and -231 Airplanes
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model A320-111, -211, -212, and -231 airplanes. This AD requires, for certain airplanes, modifying the cables and access holes to the inner tank fuel pumps; and, for certain other airplanes, inspecting the fuel pump access holes and modifying the access holes, if necessary. This AD results from fuel system reviews conducted by the manufacturer. We are issuing this AD to prevent chafing of the fuel pump cables, which could result in electrical arcing and possible ignition of fuel vapors and consequent explosion of the fuel tank.
Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 757-200, -200PF, and -300 Series Airplanes
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Boeing Model 757-200, -200PF, and -300 series airplanes. This AD requires inspecting for damage of the ground brackets, ground wires, and terminal lugs of the auxiliary power unit (APU) battery and the APU start transformer rectifier unit (TRU) as applicable; and corrective and related investigative actions. This AD results from reports indicating that during inspections on two airplanes, the ground brackets for the APU battery were found damaged. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct a damaged electrical bonding surface of the APU battery and APU start TRU ground connections, which could cause overheating of the ground connections and lead to possible consequent ignition of the adjacent insulating blankets.
Airworthiness Directives; Empresa Brasileira de Aeronautica S.A. (EMBRAER) Model EMB-135BJ, -135ER, -135KE, -135KL, -135LR, -145, -145ER, -145MR, -145LR, -145XR, -145MP, and -145EP Airplanes
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain EMBRAER airplane models as identified above. This AD requires modifying the total air temperature (TAT) sensor heating system. This AD also allows replacing the fully automated digital electronic control (FADEC) assemblies with new or modified assemblies as an additional means of compliance. This AD results from a report indicating that the FADEC unit failed to compensate for ice accretion on the engine fan blades due to a false temperature signal from the TAT sensor to the FADEC. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the TAT sensor, which could result in insufficient thrust to take off or (if coupled with the loss of an engine during takeoff) to abort the takeoff in a safe manner, and consequent reduced controllability of the airplane.

Private Land Mobile Services; 800 MHz Public Safety Interference Proceeding; NPSPAC Regions Assigned to Wave 2
As part of the 800 MHz band reconfiguration process, the Commission stated that it would issue a public notice thirty days before reconfiguration is scheduled to start in each National Public Safety Planning Advisory Committee (NPSPAC) region. Each such public notice will specify a three-month voluntary negotiation period during which time identified licensees in the regions being reconfigured are encouraged to reach agreement with Nextel on the details of relocating. The voluntary negotiation period would be followed by a three-month mandatory negotiation period, if necessary. The Commission also stated that it would freeze the filing of certain 800 MHz applications for the regions being reconfigured when it issued a public notice announcing the date when voluntary negotiation of relocation agreements must be concluded. The Commission explained that this freeze is necessary in order to maintain a stable spectral landscape during the reconfiguration process in each region.

Airworthiness Directives; Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation Model S-76A, B, and C Helicopters
This amendment adopts a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation (Sikorsky) Model S-76A, B, and C helicopters. This action requires certain inspections of the main rotor lower bifilar arm assembly in the attachment area around the lower bifilar lugs for a crack. If a crack is found on any bifilar lug, this AD requires replacing the bifilar arm assembly with an airworthy bifilar arm assembly. If no crack is found, this AD requires a one-time test for the required torque on the lug nuts and, if necessary, applying the required torque and conducting the torque stabilization tests. This amendment is prompted by four reports of cracked bifilars. The actions specified in this AD are intended to prevent failure of a bifilar lug, damage to the main rotor control system, and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.
Airworthiness Directives; Pilatus Aircraft Ltd. Models PC-12 and PC-12/45 Airplanes

Preliminary Results of Full Sunset Review: Brass Sheet and Strip from France
On April, 1, 2005, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') initiated a sunset review of the countervailing duty (``CVD'') order on brass sheet and strip from France, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). On the basis of a notice of intent to participate and an adequate substantive response filed on behalf of the domestic interested parties and an adequate response from respondent interested parties, the Department determined to conduct a full sunset review of this CVD order pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(2). As a result of our analysis, the Department preliminarily finds that revocation of the CVD order would likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of a countervailable subsidy at the level indicated in the ``Preliminary Results of Review'' section of this notice.
