Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-12-24
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to approve a State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision submitted by the State of New Hampshire.

Document Number: 2013-30532
Type: Notice

Airworthiness Directives; M7 Aerospace LLC Airplanes
Document Number: 2013-30503
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-12-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all M7 Aerospace LLC Models SA226-AT, SA226-T, SA226-T(B), SA226-TC, SA227- AC (C-26A), SA227-AT, SA227-BC (C-26A), SA227-CC, SA227-DC (C-26B), SA227-TT, SA26-AT, and SA26-T airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of airplanes with multiple fatigue cracks in the FS 69.31 front pressure bulkhead. This proposed AD would require repetitively inspecting (visually) the FS 51.31 front pressure bulkhead on SA26 series airplanes and FS 69.31 front pressure bulkhead on SA226 and SA227 series airplanes for cracks, and repairing any cracked bulkhead. This proposed AD also requires reporting certain inspection results to M7 Aerospace LLC. We are proposing this AD to correct the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Turbomeca S.A. Turboshaft Engines
Document Number: 2013-30488
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-12-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede airworthiness directive (AD) 2007-19- 09R1 that applies to Turbomeca S.A. Arriel 2B1 turboshaft engines that do not have modification TU157 incorporated. AD 2007-19-09R1 requires replacement of the hydromechanical metering unit (HMU) with a serviceable HMU. Since we issued AD 2007-19-09R1, we received reports of ruptures on HMU constant delta pressure valves that have less than 2,000 hours in service. This proposed AD would continue to require HMU replacement; reduce the compliance interval; and include the power turbine (C2) cycle consumption rate when determining compliance times. We are proposing this AD to prevent failure of the HMU, which could lead to damage to the engine, and damage to the aircraft.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes
Document Number: 2013-30468
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-12-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede airworthiness directive (AD) 2010-13- 04, which applies to certain Bombardier, Inc. Model DHC-8-400 series airplanes. AD 2010-13-04 requires modifying the nose landing gear (NLG) trailing arm. Since we issued AD 2010-13-04, we received a report of several missing or damaged pivot pin retention bolts. This proposed AD would require installing a new pivot pin retention mechanism. This proposed AD would also add airplanes to the applicability. We are proposing this AD to prevent failure of the pivot pin retention bolt, which could result in a loss of directional control or loss of a NLG tire during take-off or landing.
Airworthiness Directives; Schempp-Hirth Flugzeugbau GmbH Gliders
Document Number: 2013-30460
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-12-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Schempp-Hirth Flugzeugbau GmbH Model Duo Discus T gliders. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued 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 the instructions provided to inspect the propeller hub and blades are insufficient for detecting cracks and/or other damage, and other operating instructions provided by the flight and maintenance manual are incorrect and insufficient. We are issuing this AD to require actions to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Turbomeca S.A. Turboshaft Engines
Document Number: 2013-30459
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-12-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Turbomeca S.A. Arriel 1A1, 1A2, 1B, 1C, 1C1, 1C2, 1D, 1D1, 1E2, 1K1, 1S, and 1S1 turboshaft engines. This AD requires a one-time inspection of the free turbine (FT) module (M04) for the affected Turbomeca S.A. Arriel 1 engines and, if a discrepancy is found, repair of the affected module. This AD was prompted by a ``chip illumination event'' in flight on a Turbomeca S.A. Arriel 1 engine. We are issuing this AD to prevent a loss of FT bearing lubrication, resulting in FT module failure, damage to the engine, and damage to the aircraft.
