Public Notice for Waiver of Aeronautical Land-Use Assurance
Document Number: 2014-09633
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-04-29
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is considering a proposal to change a 29.8 acre parcel of airport land from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use and to authorize this parcel to be leased for revenue-producing, non- aeronautical purposes at Port Columbus International Airport, Columbus, Ohio. The aforementioned land is not needed for aeronautical use. The parcel is located on the north side of Bridgeway Avenue, between Goshen Lane and James Road. The majority of the parcel is a mowed field. There are three (3) existing buildings located on the parcel. These buildings are not needed for aeronautical use and are to be removed. The parcel presently serves the primary purpose of protecting airport aeronautical (imaginary) surfaces which are needed for safe and efficient use of navigable airspace. The parcel will continue to serve in this same capacity through reservations and restrictions retained in the lease document. The parcel will be leased and developed for office/warehouse and office/call center facilities.

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-09623
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-04-29
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2014-03-08 for all Airbus Model A318, A319, A320, and A321 series airplanes. AD 2014- 03-08 required an inspection to determine the part number of the interconnecting struts installed on the wings, identifying the part number and the serial number of the associated target and proximity sensor if applicable, and replacing or re-identifying the flap interconnecting strut if applicable. This new AD corrects a typographical error that affects the definition of a serviceable interconnecting strut. This AD was prompted by a report that an investigation showed that when a certain combination of a target/ proximity sensor serial number is installed on a flap interconnecting strut, a ``target FAR'' signal cannot be detected when it reaches the mechanical end stop of the interconnecting strut. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct a latent failure of the flap down drive disconnection due to an already-failed interconnecting strut sensor, which could result in asymmetric flap panel movement and consequent loss of control of the airplane.

Airworthiness Directives; British Aerospace (Operations) Limited Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-09540
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-04-29
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding an airworthiness directive (AD) 87-02-04 for British Aerospace (Operations) Limited Model HP.137 Jetstream MK.1, Jetstream Series 200, and Jetstream Series 3101 airplanes. 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 cracking of the forward main landing gear yoke pintle resulting from corrosion pits leading to stress corrosion. We are issuing this AD to require actions to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Biweekly Notice; Applications and Amendments to Facility Operating Licenses and Combined Licenses Involving No Significant Hazards Considerations
Document Number: 2014-09489
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-04-29

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-09412
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-04-29
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model A330-200 and -300 series airplanes, and Model A340-200 and -300 series airplanes. This AD requires repetitive inspections of certain sidestay upper cardan pins of the main landing gear (MLG), and associated nuts and retainer assemblies, and pin replacement if necessary. This AD also provides for an optional measurement of the cardan pin clearance dimensions (gap check) and corrective actions if necessary, which would terminate the repetitive inspections. This AD was prompted by a report of a sidestay upper cardan pin of the MLG migrating out of position. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct migration of the sidestay upper cardan pin, which could result in disconnection of the sidestay upper arm from the airplane structure, and could result in a landing gear collapse and consequent damage to the airplane and injury to occupants.
Airworthiness Directives; Austro Engine GmbH Engines
Document Number: 2014-09349
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-04-29
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding airworthiness directive (AD) 2013-14-08 for all Austro Engine GmbH model E4 engines. AD 2013-14-08 required removing from service certain part number (P/N) waste gate controllers. This AD requires removing certain additional P/N waste gate controllers from service. This AD was prompted by several reports of power loss events due to fracture of the waste gate controller lever. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the waste gate controller lever, which could lead to damage to one or more engines, loss of thrust control, and damage to the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; the Boeing Company Airplanes

Date: 2014-04-29
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2009-24-07 for certain the Boeing Company Model 737-600, -700, -700C, and -800 series airplanes. AD 2009-24-07 required repetitive lubrications of the right and left main landing gear (MLG) forward trunnion pins. AD 2009-24-07 also required an inspection for discrepancies of the transition radius of the MLG forward trunnion pins, and corrective actions if necessary. For certain airplanes, AD 2009-24-07 required repetitive detailed inspections for discrepancies (including finish damage, corrosion, pitting, and base metal scratches) of the transition radius of the left and right MLG trunnion pins, and corrective action if necessary. Replacing or overhauling the trunnion pins terminates the actions required by AD 2009-24-07. This new AD adds airplanes to the applicability of AD 2009-24-07. This AD was prompted by reports of corrosion protection damage to the forward trunnion pin on additional airplanes. We are issuing this AD to prevent stress corrosion cracking of the forward trunnion pins, which could result in fracture of the pins and consequent collapse of the MLG.
Airworthiness Directives; the Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-08987
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-04-29
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 737-200, -200C, -300, -400, and -500 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of cracking found in the skin at the lower aft corner of the forward entry doorway on airplanes that do not have an airstair door cutout. This AD requires repetitive inspections for cracking in the lower corners of the forward entry doorway on airplanes that do not have an airstair door cutout, and repair if necessary. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct cracking in the lower corners of the forward entry doorway, which could lead to crack progression and consequent rapid decompression of the airplane.
