Transferring Certain Dispute Resolution Service Matters to the Commission's Landowner Helpline
Document Number: 2016-01812
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-02-02
Agency: Department of Energy, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
The Commission is revising its regulations to reflect an internal reorganization. On June 14, 2013, the Dispute Resolution Service moved from the Commission's Office of Administrative Litigation (OAL) to the Commission's Office of Administrative Law Judges (OALJ), and the resulting new office was named the Office of Administrative Law Judges and Dispute Resolution (OALJDR). On January 11, 2015, the Commission designated a Landowner Helpline function in the OALJDR. The revised regulations substitute the Commission's recently established Landowner Helpline in place of the Commission's Dispute Resolution Service (DRS) as the contact for handling dispute-related calls, emails, and letters, pertaining to the construction and operation of jurisdictional infrastructure projects. This revision does not preclude disputants from utilizing other means to address disputes at the Commission. The transfer of responsibility for dispute-related calls, emails, and letters pertaining to infrastructure projects to the Landowner Helpline reflects an allocation of dedicated resources to serve the public interest.

Airworthiness Directives; Turbomeca S.A. Turboshaft Engines
Document Number: 2016-01770
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-02-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Turbomeca S.A. Astazou XIV B and H turboshaft engines. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of a crack on the 3rd stage turbine wheel. This proposed AD would require a one-time inspection of the front surface of the 3rd stage turbine for a groove. We are proposing this AD to prevent cracks in the 3rd stage turbine wheel, failure of the engine, in-flight shutdown, and loss of control of the helicopter.
Airworthiness Directives; Bell Helicopter Textron Canada Limited
Document Number: 2016-01747
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-02-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Bell Helicopter Textron Canada Limited (Bell) Model 429 helicopters. This AD requires inspecting each tail rotor (T/R) pitch link (link) bearing bore for corrosion and pitting and either replacing the T/R link or applying sealant. This AD also requires a recurring inspection of the sealant and repeating the inspections for corrosion and pitting if any sealant is missing. This AD is prompted by an incident in which a helicopter experienced an in-flight failure of a T/R link. These actions are intended to detect corrosion or pitting and to prevent failure of a T/R link and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-01741
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-02-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model BD-100-1A10 (Challenger 300) airplanes. This AD was prompted by multiple reports of a short circuit between the heater element and the metal sheath of the pitot-static probe heater. This AD requires replacement of the left and right pitot-static probes with newly redesigned left and right pitot-static probes. We are issuing this AD to prevent degradation of the heating ability of the pitot- static probe heater, resulting in erroneous airspeed indication during flight in icing conditions and consequent reduced controllability of the airplane.
