Document Number: E8-30168
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-12-24
Agency: Federal Highway Administration, Department of Transportation
The purpose of this final rule is to revise Part 924 to incorporate changes to the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) that resulted from the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU), as well as to reflect changes in the overall program that have evolved since the FHWA originally published 23 CFR Part 924.
Airworthiness Directives; Cessna Model 560 Airplanes
Document Number: E8-30125
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-12-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD), which applies to certain Cessna Model 560 airplanes. That AD currently requires installing new minimum airspeed placards to notify the flightcrew of the proper airspeeds for operating in both normal and icing conditions. That AD also requires revising the airplane flight manual to provide limitations and procedures for operating in icing conditions, for operating with anti-ice systems selected ``on'' independent of icing conditions, and for recognizing and recovering from inadvertent stall. That AD also provides an optional terminating action for the placard installation. This new AD requires the previously optional terminating action. This AD results from an evaluation of in-service airplanes following an accident. The evaluation indicated that some airplanes might have an improperly adjusted stall warning system. We are issuing this AD to prevent an inadvertent stall due to the inadequate stall warning margin provided by an improperly adjusted stall warning system, which could result in loss of controllability of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce Corporation (RRC) AE 3007A Series Turbofan Engines
Document Number: E8-30051
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-12-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is superseding emergency airworthiness directive (AD) 2008-19-51 that we sent previously to all known U.S. owners and operators of RRC AE 3007A series turbofan engines. That AD requires performing initial and repetitive eddy current inspections (ECIs) on the high-pressure turbine (HPT) stage 2 wheel for cracks. This AD continues to require those same inspections, but revises the compliance schedule for the initial inspection and specifies the affected HPT stage 2 wheels by part number (P/N). This AD results from reports of cracked HPT stage 2 wheels. We are issuing this AD to detect cracks in the HPT stage 2 wheel, which could result in a possible uncontained failure of the HPT stage 2 wheel and damage to the airplane.
Bylaws of the Board of Governors
Document Number: E8-30020
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-12-24
Agency: Postal Service, Agencies and Commissions
The Board of Governors of the United States Postal Service has adopted a considerable number of amendments to its Bylaws, set forth in subchapter A, parts 1 through 11, of title 39 of the Code of Federal Regulations. These amendments implement changes in the authority, responsibilities, and procedures of the Board made necessary by the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act of 2006 (PAEA), Public Law 109-435. The Postal Service hereby publishes this final rule revising subchapter A to reflect the changes in the Board's Bylaws.
Airworthiness Directives; Air Tractor, Inc. Models AT-200, AT-300, AT-400, AT-500, AT-600, and AT-800 Series Airplanes
Document Number: E8-29568
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-12-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) to supersede AD 2008-11-17, which applies to certain Air Tractor, Inc. Models AT-200, AT-300, AT-400, AT-500, AT-600, and AT-800 series airplanes. AD 2008-11-17 currently requires you to install an overturn skid plate kit or a modification to the overturn skid plate already installed. Since we issued AD 2008-11-17, the manufacturer has notified us that Model AT-401B airplanes also need a modification to the overturn skid plate. Consequently, this AD would retain the actions of AD 2008-11-17 and add the requirement to modify the overturn skid plate installed on Model AT-401B airplanes. We are issuing this AD to prevent the front and rear connections of the overturn skid plate to the airplane from breaking, which could allow foreign debris to enter the cockpit during an airplane overturn. This condition, if not corrected, could lead to pilot injury.
Airworthiness Directives; McDonnell Douglas Model DC-8-11, DC-8-12, DC-8-21, DC-8-31, DC-8-32, DC-8-33, DC-8-41, DC-8-42, and DC-8-43 Airplanes; Model DC-8-51, DC-8-52, DC-8-53, and DC-8-55 Airplanes; Model DC-8F-54 and DC-8F-55 Airplanes; Model DC-8-61, DC-8-62, and DC-8-63 Airplanes; Model DC-8-61F, DC-8-62F, and DC-8-63F Airplanes; Model DC-8-71, DC-8-72, and DC-8-73 Airplanes; and Model DC-8-71F, DC-8-72F, and DC-8-73F Airplanes
Document Number: E8-29233
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-12-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD), which applies to all McDonnell Douglas Model DC-8 airplanes. That AD currently requires, among other things, revision of an existing program of structural inspections. This new AD requires implementation of a revised program of structural inspections of baseline structure to detect and correct fatigue cracking in order to ensure the continued airworthiness of these airplanes as they approach the manufacturer's original fatigue design life goal. This new AD also reduces the inspection threshold for certain principal structural elements. This AD results from a significant number of these airplanes approaching or exceeding the design service goal on which the initial type certification approval was predicated. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct fatigue cracking that could compromise the structural integrity of these airplanes.
Airworthiness Directives; MD Helicopters, Inc. Model MD900 Helicopters
Document Number: E8-28367
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-12-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This document publishes in the Federal Register an amendment adopting Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2008-17-51, which was sent previously to all known U.S. owners and operators of MD Helicopters, Inc. (MDHI) Model MD900 helicopters by individual letters. This AD requires, before further flight, fluorescent magnetic particle inspecting the aft threads of the forward directional control cable (control cable) for a crack and replacing the control cable with an airworthy part if you find a crack. If you do not find a crack, this AD requires that you demagnetize the cable threads until you reach a certain gauss level. This AD also requires visually inspecting the aft cable attach bracket for a crack and for interference with movement of the control cable or for deformation of the aft cable attach bracket. If a crack or interference with movement of the control cable or deformation of the aft cable attach bracket exists, this AD requires replacing the bracket with an airworthy part. This AD also requires modifying the control cable conduit and the rotating cone control rod and identifying the rotating cone control rod with a certain part number. This amendment is prompted by three reports of in-flight failure of the control cable and loss of yaw control resulting in emergency landings and subsequent damage to the helicopter. The actions specified by this AD are intended to prevent loss of yaw control and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.
