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.

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
Document Number: 2014-09309
Type: Rule
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.

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.

Energy Conservation Program: Energy Conservation Standards for General Service Fluorescent Lamps and Incandescent Reflector Lamps
Document Number: 2014-08740
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-04-29
Agency: Department of Energy
The Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975 (EPCA), as amended, prescribes energy conservation standards for various commercial and industrial equipment and certain consumer products, including general service fluorescent lamps (GSFLs) and incandescent reflector lamps (IRLs). EPCA also requires the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to determine whether more-stringent, amended standards would be technologically feasible and economically justified, and would save a significant amount of energy.

Airworthiness Directives; the Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-07339
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 747 airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of cracking in particular areas of the bulkhead structure at body station (BS) 2598. This AD requires repetitive inspections, including post-repair and post-modification inspections, for cracking in the bulkhead structure at BS 2598; certain one-time inspections of certain fasteners and support frame modifications on certain airplanes; related investigative and corrective actions, if necessary; and an interim modification that would terminate certain repetitive inspections. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct fatigue cracking of the BS 2598 bulkhead structure, which could adversely affect the structural integrity of the bulkhead and the horizontal stabilizer support structure, and result in loss of controllability of the airplane.

Proposed Waiver and Extension of the Project Period for the Training and Advisory Services-Equity Assistance Centers Program
Document Number: 2014-09603
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-04-28
Agency: Department of Education
For 36-month projects funded in fiscal year (FY) 2011 under the Training and Advisory ServicesEquity Assistance Centers (EACs) program, the Secretary proposes to waive the requirements in 34 CFR 75.261(c)(2), which prohibits the extension of project periods involving the obligation of additional Federal funds. The Secretary also proposes to extend the project period of these grants for up to an additional 24 months. This would enable the 10 current EAC grantees to continue to receive Federal funding annually for project periods through FY 2015 and possibly through FY 2016. Further, the waiver and extension, as proposed, would mean that we would not announce a new competition or make new awards in FY 2014. We intend to announce a new competition in either FY 2015 or FY 2016.
