Airworthiness Directives; Raytheon Aircraft Company Models 58P and 58TC Airplanes
Document Number: 05-23055
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-11-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Raytheon Aircraft Company (Raytheon) Models 58P and 58TC airplanes used as a lead airplane by the United States Forest Service. This proposed AD would require you to insert a new supplement into the Limitations Section of the Pilot's Operating Handbook and Airplane Flight Manual (POH/AFM) that establishes new limits for the structural life of the airframe (wing, fuselage, empennage, or associated structure); and dispose of the life-limited airframe following 14 CFR 43.10 when the limit of the structural life of the airframe is reached. This proposed AD results from Raytheon issuing a POH/AFM supplement that establishes the structural life limit of 4,500 hours time-in- service (TIS) for the airframe (wing, fuselage, empennage, and associated structure) for any Models 58P and 58TC airplanes used as a lead airplane by the United States Forest Service; and FAA's determination that the structural life limit is necessary. We are issuing this proposed AD to prevent cumulative fatigue damage and fatigue cracking damage that would sufficiently reduce residual strength of the airframe and result in failure. Failure of the airframe (wing, fuselage, empennage, or associated structure) could lead to loss of control of the airplane.

Airworthiness Directives; BAE Systems (Operations) Limited Model BAe 146 and Model Avro 146-RJ Airplanes
Document Number: 05-22970
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-11-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD), which applies to all BAE Systems (Operations) Limited Model BAe 146 and Model Avro 146-RJ airplanes. That AD currently requires revising the Airworthiness Limitations Section (ALS) of the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness to incorporate life limits for certain items and inspections to detect fatigue cracking in certain structures. This new AD requires revising the ALS of the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness to incorporate new and more restrictive life limits for certain items and new and more restrictive inspections to detect fatigue cracking in certain structures. This new AD results from issuance of a later revision to the airworthiness limitations of the BAe/Avro 146 Aircraft Maintenance Manual, which specifies new inspections and compliance times for inspection and replacement actions. We are issuing this AD to ensure that fatigue cracking of certain structural elements is detected and corrected; such fatigue cracking could adversely affect the structural integrity of these airplanes.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A310-200 and -300 Series Airplanes
Document Number: 05-22971
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-11-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model A310-200 and -300 series airplanes. This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections for cracks and corrosion of the areas behind the scuff plates below the passenger/crew doors and bulk cargo door, and repair of any cracked or corroded part. This proposed AD also would require repetitive inspections for cracks of the holes of the corner doublers, the fail-safe ring, and the door frames of the passenger/crew door structures. This proposed AD is prompted by reports of corrosion behind the scuff plates at passenger/ crew doors and the bulk cargo door and fatigue cracks on the corner doublers of the forward and aft passenger/crew door frames. We are proposing this AD to prevent such corrosion and fatigue cracking, which could result in reduced structural integrity of the door surroundings.

Federal Motor Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard
Document Number: 05-22819
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-11-17
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
This document denies a petition for reconsideration of the agency's newly expanded parts marking requirements. The Anti Car Theft Act of 1992 required NHTSA to conduct a rulemaking to extend the parts marking requirements of that Standard to all passenger cars and multipurpose passenger vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating of 6,000 pounds or less regardless of theft rate, unless the Attorney General found that such a requirement would not substantially inhibit chop shop operations and motor vehicle thefts. The initial final rule extending the parts marking requirement was published in April of 2004. In May 2005, NHTSA responded to petitions for reconsideration of the April 2004 final rule and established a phase in schedule for the new requirements. We also decided to exclude vehicle lines with annual production of not more than 3,500 vehicles from the parts marking requirements because the benefits of marking these vehicle lines would be trivial or of no value. The agency received a petition for reconsideration of the May 2005 final rule from International Association of Auto Theft Investigators. The petition asked the agency to reconsider the phase-in and small volume exclusion as it applied to large volume vehicle manufacturers. This document denies that petition because it did not provide sufficient information in support of their request to reconsider the May 2005 final rule.

PHMSA is considering requirements to address the current safety and security risks associated with the storage of explosives during transportation. In this notice, we are soliciting comments concerning measures to reduce the risks posed by the storage of explosives while they are in transportation and whether regulatory action is warranted. We also invite comments as to whether enhanced requirements for storage incidental to movement should apply to other hazardous materials (e.g., materials toxic by inhalation).
Airworthiness Directives; McCauley Propeller Systems Models 3A32C406/82NDB-X and D3A32C409/82NDB-X Propellers
Document Number: 05-22712
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-11-16
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for McCauley Propeller Systems models 3A32C406/82NDB-X and D3A32C409/ 82NDB-X propellers, installed on Teledyne Continental Motors (TCM) IO- 520, TSIO-520, or IO-550 reciprocating engines. These propellers are herein referred to as C406 and C409 propellers, respectively. This proposed AD would require adding an operational revolutions per minute (rpm) restriction on the C406 and C409 propellers, and installing an rpm restriction placard in the cockpit. This proposed AD would also add a 10,000-hour total time-in-service (TIS) life limit for these propellers. This proposed AD would also remove from service any propeller that has 10,000 hours or more total TIS, or that has an unknown total TIS. Also, this proposed AD would require initial and repetitive propeller blade inspections for damage, and repair if necessary. This proposed AD results from testing by the manufacturer that identified stress conditions that affect the fatigue life and damage tolerance of C406 and C409 propellers, when installed on TCM IO- 520, TSIO-520, or IO-550 reciprocating engines. We are proposing this AD to prevent blade or hub failure that could result in separation of a propeller blade and loss of control of the airplane.

Hours of Service of Drivers: United States Postal Service Application for Exemption
Document Number: 05-22648
Type: Notice
Date: 2005-11-16
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA announces that it has received an application for exemption from the hours-of-service (HOS) requirements from the United States Postal Service (USPS) on behalf of motor carriers that transport mail under contract for USPS. USPS requests that some of its contract motor carriers be allowed to operate under the HOS rules in effect prior to January 4, 2004. USPS believes the exemption would likely achieve a level of safety equivalent to, or greater than, the level achieved under the HOS rules applicable to operators of property- carrying vehicles rules after January 4, 2004. FMCSA requests public comment on the USPS application for exemption.
