Hours of Service of Drivers: Timberdoodle Company's Application for Exemption
Document Number: 2014-07805
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-04-08
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA announces its denial of Timberdoodle Company's (Timberdoodle) request for an exemption from section 395.3(b)(1) of the ``Hours of Service [HOS] of Drivers'' regulations (49 CFR part 395). Section 395.3(b)(1) prohibits the operation of a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) by anyone who has accumulated 60 hours of on-duty time in a period of 7 days. Timberdoodle requested that its drivers be allowed to exclude from this calculation all on-duty time other than time actually driving a CMV. FMCSA concluded that Timberdoodle has not demonstrated how its CMV operations under such an exemption would be likely to achieve a level of safety equivalent to or greater than the level of safety that would be obtained in the absence of the exemption.

These rescissions are due in part to the U.S. Secretary of Commerce's December 2008 decision upholding the California Coastal Commission's (CCC) objection to the Foothill/ Eastern Transportation Corridor Agency's (TCA) consistency determination for the proposed project. This NOI rescinds both NOIs.

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-07801
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-04-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus Model A300 series airplanes, Model A300 B4-600, B4-600R, and F4- 600R series airplanes, and Model A300 C4-605R Variant F airplanes (collectively called Model A300-600 series airplanes). This proposed AD was prompted by a report of chafing found on the overflow sensor harness of the surge tank, and subsequent contact between the electrical wiring and fuel tank structure. This proposed AD would require a one-time inspection for chafing of the overflow sensor harness and structural damage of the outer tank, and repair if necessary. This proposed AD would also require modification of the sensor harness. We are proposing this AD to prevent chafing of the harness and subsequent contact between the electrical wiring and fuel tank structure, which could result in electrical arcing and a fuel tank explosion and consequent loss of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-07800
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-04-08
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 two in-service incidents where one side of the main landing gear (MLG) did not achieve down-lock. This proposed AD would require a detailed inspection of the apex joints of the stabilizer brace lock link in the MLG for clearance; rectifying and repairing the clearance gap, if necessary; and lubricating the apex joints of the stabilizer brace lock link in the MLG. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct insufficiently greased stabilizer brace lock linkage of the MLG and over-torqued lock linkage attachment bolts, which could lead to the failure to extend and down-lock the MLG, and could affect the safe landing of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-07799
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-04-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede airworthiness directive (AD) 2011-17- 08, which applies to all Airbus Model A330-200 series airplanes, Model A330-200 Freighter series airplanes, and Model A330-300 series airplanes. AD 2011-17-08 currently requires revising the maintenance program by incorporating certain Airworthiness Limitation Items (ALIs). Since we issued AD 2011-17-08, Airbus has revised a certain ALI document, which specifies more restrictive instructions and/or airworthiness limitations. This proposed AD would revise the maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new or revised structural inspection requirements. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct fatigue cracking, damage, and corrosion in certain structure, which could result in reduced structural integrity of the airplane.
