Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company
Document Number: 2014-08320
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-04-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 737-600, -700, -700C, -800, -900, and -900ER series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of latently failed fuel shutoff valves discovered during fuel filter replacement. This proposed AD would require revising the maintenance or inspection program to include new airworthiness limitations. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct latent failures of the fuel shutoff valve to the engine, which could result in the inability to shut off fuel to the engine and, in case of certain engine fires, an uncontrollable fire that could lead to wing failure.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-08319
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-04-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus Model A330-200 Freighter, A330-200 and -300, and A340-200, -300, -500, and -600 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reassessment of an unsafe condition related to MZ-type spoiler servo- controls (SSCs) that did not remain locked in the retracted position (hydraulic locking function) after manual depressurization of the corresponding hydraulic circuit. This reassessment resulted in the determination that performing repetitive operational tests of all SSC types is necessary. This proposed AD would require repetitive operational tests of the hydraulic locking function on each SSC installed on the blue or yellow hydraulic circuits, and replacing any affected SSC with a serviceable SSC. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct loss of the hydraulic locking function during take-off, which, in combination with one inoperative engine, could result in reduced controllability of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; British Aerospace Regional Aircraft Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-08318
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-04-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all British Aerospace Regional Aircraft Jetstream Model 3201 airplanes that would supersede AD 2007-10-16. 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 the need to incorporate revisions to the Airworthiness Limitations section of the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness. We are issuing this proposed AD to require actions to address the unsafe condition on these products.

Privacy Act of 1974: New System of Records
Document Number: 2014-08316
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-04-14
Agency: Office of Personnel Management
The Office of Personnel Management is proposing to add a new system of records to its inventory of record systems subject to the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), as amended. This action is necessary to meet the requirements of the Privacy Act to publish in the Federal Register notice of the existence and character of records maintained by the agency (5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(4)). The Integrity Assurance Officer Control Files (Internal 20) system of records has been operational since February 2005 without incident. Previously, OPM has relied on preexisting Privacy Act system of records notices for the collection and maintenance of these records. In an effort to increase transparency, OPM is publishing a separate notice for this system.

Airworthiness Directives; Diamond Aircraft Industries GmbH Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-08312
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-04-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Diamond Aircraft Industries GmbH Models DA40 and DA40F airplanes that would supersede AD 2013-24-14, which resulted 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 the fatigue strength found in the aft main spar not ensuring unlimited lifetime structural integrity. We are issuing this proposed AD to require actions to address the unsafe condition on these products and to change the compliance time to coincide with other regulatory requirements.

Notice of Application for Withdrawal and Opportunity for Public Meeting; San Bernardino, CA
Document Number: 2014-08310
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-04-14
Agency: Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management
The United States Forest Service (USFS) filed an application with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), requesting the Secretary of the Interior to withdraw, for 20 years, subject to valid existing rights, approximately 4,203 acres of Federal lands in the San Bernardino National Forest (SBNF), California, from location and entry under the United States mining laws in order to maintain and conserve habitat for four listed threatened and endangered species (Cushenbury buckwheat, Cushenbury Milk-vetch, Cushenbury oxytheca, and Parish's daisy). The application also requests that approximately 440 acres of non-Federal lands within the boundaries of the lands proposed for withdrawal be included in the withdrawal if they are acquired by the United States. This notice temporarily segregates the lands for up to 2 years from location and entry under the United States mining laws, but not from the mineral material sales or mineral or geothermal leasing, to protect the biological resources while the withdrawal application is being processed. This notice also provides the public an opportunity to comment on the proposed withdrawal application and to request a public meeting.

Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-08304
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-04-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701, & 702) airplanes, Model CL-600-2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705) airplanes, Model CL-600-2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900) airplanes, and Model CL-600-2E25 (Regional Jet Series 1000) airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by two in-service reports of fracture of the rudder pedal tubes installed on the pilot-side rudder bar assembly. This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections for cracking and damage of the pilot-side rudder pedal tubes, and corrective action if necessary. This proposed AD would also provide optional terminating action for the repetitive inspections. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct cracked and damaged pilot-side rudder pedal tubes, which could result in loss of function of the pilot's rudder pedal during flight, takeoff, or landing, and could result in reduced controllability of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-08303
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-04-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model A300-600 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of cracking found in the pylon box, which was due to the stresses resulting from the pressure applied by the engines' thrust reverser cowl bumpers. This proposed AD would require repetitive high frequency eddy current (HFEC) inspections for cracking, and replacement of all fittings if necessary. Replacement of all fittings would terminate the repetitive HFEC inspections. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct cracks of the pylon rib 5, which could result in reduced structural integrity of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Lockheed Martin Corporation/Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-08302
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-04-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 95-26-11, which applies to all Lockheed Martin Corporation/Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company Model L-1011 series airplanes. AD 95-26-11 currently requires inspections to detect cracking of the fittings that attach the aft pressure bulkhead to the fuselage stringers, inspections to detect cracking of the fittings and of the splice tab of the aft pressure bulkhead, and corrective actions if necessary. Since we issued AD 95-26-11, we have determined that the fittings at stringer attachments to the upper region of the aft pressure bulkhead are subject to widespread fatigue damage (WFD), which could result in cracking in the aft pressure bulkhead. This proposed AD would reduce the compliance time; add inspections for cracking of certain aft fuselage skin panels; add a structural modification; and also add a post modification inspection program. We are proposing this AD to prevent simultaneous failure of multiple stringer end fittings through fatigue cracking at the aft pressure bulkhead, which could lead to rapid decompression of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-08301
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-04-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2008-17- 03, which applies to certain The Boeing Company Model 737-100, -200, - 200C, -300, -400, and -500 series airplanes. AD 2008-17-03 currently requires repetitive inspections to detect fuselage frame cracking, and corrective action if necessary. AD 2008-17-03 also provides for optional terminating action (repair/preventive change) for the repetitive inspections. Since we issued AD 2008-17-03, we have determined that additional airplanes may be subject to the identified unsafe condition. This proposed AD would add airplanes to the applicability. For the newly added airplanes, however, this proposed AD would not provide terminating action for the repetitive inspections because service information has not been provided for a repair/ preventive change. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct fuselage frame cracking, which could prevent the left forward entry door from sealing correctly, and could cause in-flight decompression of the airplane.
