Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-03213
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-02-16
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 757 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of bolt rotation in the engine drag fitting joint and fasteners heads; an inspection of the fastener holes revealed that cracks were found in the skin on two airplanes. This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections for skin cracking and shim migration at the upper link drag fittings, diagonal brace cracking, and fastener looseness; and applicable on-condition actions. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-03185
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-02-15
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus Model A320-271N, A321-271N, and A321-272N airplanes. This AD requires de-pairing certain International Aero Engines (IAE) engines in order to continue to operate affected airplanes and discontinuing extended operations (ETOPS) for airplanes with at least one affected engine. This AD was prompted by reports of two engine in-flight shutdowns (IFSDs) and two rejected takeoffs. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

Parts and Accessories Necessary for Safe Operation, Lamps and Reflective Devices; Application for an Exemption From STEMCO LP
Document Number: 2018-03033
Type: Notice
Date: 2018-02-14
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announces its decision to grant STEMCO LP's (STEMCO) application for a limited 5-year exemption to allow motor carriers to operate certain commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) that are equipped with STEMCO's TrailerTail[supreg] aerodynamic device with rear identification lamps and rear clearance lamps that are mounted lower than currently permitted by the Agency's regulations. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) require rear identification lamps and rear clearance lamps to be located ``as close as practicable to the top of the vehicle.'' While the TrailerTail[supreg] aerodynamic device is currently mounted slightly below the roof of the vehicle, STEMCO states that this offset prevents the device from delivering the maximum available fuel economy benefit as opposed to mounting it flush with the top of the vehicle which may block the visibility of the rear identification lamps and rear clearance lamps. The Agency has determined that locating the rear identification lamps and rear clearance lamps lower on the trailers and semitrailers, mounted at the same level as the stop lamps, tail lamps, and turn signals will maintain a level of safety that is equivalent to, or greater than, the level of safety achieved without the exemption.

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-03026
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-02-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2017-01- 02, which applies to certain The Boeing Company Model 787-8 and 787-9 airplanes. AD 2017-01-02 requires an inspection for discrepant inboard and outboard trailing edge flap rotary actuators. Since we issued AD 2017-01-02, we have determined that it is necessary to revise the applicability to include additional airplanes, and to reduce the number of affected actuators. This proposed AD would continue to require an inspection of the inboard and outboard trailing edge flap rotary actuator for any discrepant rotary actuator, and corrective actions if necessary. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; GE Aviation Czech s.r.o. Turboprop Engines
Document Number: 2018-02994
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-02-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation

This AD requires removal of certain power turbine (PT) disks installed on the affected engines. This AD was prompted by a design review by the manufacturer that determined PT rotors with certain disks have less overspeed margin than originally stated during product certification. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

Document Number: 2018-02917
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-02-13
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation

This AD requires initial and repetitive visual inspection and fluorescent- penetrant inspection (FPI) of the main propeller shaft. This AD was prompted by the failure of a main propeller shaft. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Removing Regulatory Barriers for Vehicles With Automated Driving Systems
Document Number: 2018-02895
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-02-13
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
NHTSA is announcing a public meeting as part of the Agency's effort to seek public comments to identify any regulatory barriers in the existing Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) to the testing, compliance certification, and compliance verification of vehicles with Automated Driving Systems (ADSs) and certain unconventional interior designs. The Agency published a Federal Register Notice of Request for Comments (RFC) titled Removing Regulatory Barriers for Vehicles with Automated Driving Systems on January 18, 2018, that included specific questions for which the Agency seeks comment (83 FR 2607, Docket No. NHTSA-2018-0009). NHTSA is holding this public meeting to present to the public a summary of the RFC and activities underway at NHTSA and across the industry regarding the identification and removal of barriers that might impede safe deployment of ADSs. This material is intended to better inform the public as they prepare comments in response to the RFC. Public comments are welcome at this meeting, but all should be oral, and any supporting presentations or materials should be submitted to the docket for consideration.
Parts and Accessories Necessary for Safe Operation; Application for an Exemption From TowMate, LLC
Document Number: 2018-02890
Type: Notice
Date: 2018-02-13
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA announces its decision to renew for a period of 5 years TowMate, LLC's (TowMate's) current exemption allowing motor carriers to operate rechargeable wireless temporary stop, turn, and tail lighting systems during temporary towing operations. Under the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs), all required lamps, with the exception of battery-powered lamps used on projecting loads, must be powered by the electrical system of the motor vehicle. The Agency has concluded that granting this exemption renewal would not have an adverse impact on safety, and that use of rechargeable wireless temporary stop, turn, and tail lighting systems during temporary towing operations would likely achieve a level of safety equivalent to or greater than the level of safety provided by the regulation. However, the Agency requests comments and information on the exemption, especially from anyone who believes this standard will not be maintained.

Airworthiness Directives; Stemme AG Gliders
Document Number: 2018-02749
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-02-13
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2017-10-11 for Stemme AG Model Stemme S10-VT gliders (type certificate previously held by Stemme GmbH & Co. KG). This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by an aviation authority of another country to identify and address an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as certain propeller front transmission gear wheels having insufficient material strength because of improper heat treatment during manufacturing. We are issuing this AD to require actions to address the unsafe condition on these products and to add Stemme AG Model Stemme S 12 gliders to the Applicability section.
