Proposed Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace; Baltimore, MD
Document Number: 2011-22319
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-08-31
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend Class D and Class E Airspace at Baltimore, MD, as the Martin Non-Directional Beacon (NDB) has been decommissioned and new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures have been developed at Martin State Airport.

Notice of Procedural Changes to the Performance and Registration Information Systems Management (PRISM) Program
Document Number: 2011-22318
Type: Notice
Date: 2011-08-31
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA extends until September 1, 2012, the effective date for the procedural change to eliminate use of the ``registrant-only'' USDOT Number as part of the PRISM program. In an August 9, 2010, Federal Register notice, the Agency initially set September 1, 2011, as the effective date of the change. The extension will allow the Agency to provide additional implementation guidance based on feedback and information received since the August 9, 2010, notice of procedural change and will allow States and other stakeholders to make necessary changes to their systems and processes pursuant to this additional guidance.

Pilot in Command Proficiency Check and Other Changes to the Pilot and Pilot School Certification Rules
Document Number: 2011-22308
Type: Rule
Date: 2011-08-31
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This final rule amends the FAA's regulations concerning pilot, flight instructor, and pilot school certification. This rule will require pilot-in-command (PIC) proficiency checks for pilots who act as PIC of turbojet-powered aircraft except for pilots of single seat experimental jets and pilots of experimental jets who do not carry passengers. It allows pilot applicants to apply concurrently for a private pilot certificate and an instrument rating and permits pilot schools and provisional pilot schools to apply for a combined private pilot certification and instrument rating course. In addition, the rule will: Allow pilot schools to use internet-based training programs without requiring schools to have a physical ground training facility; revise the definition of ``complex airplane;'' and allow the use of airplanes with throwover control wheels for expanded flight training. The final rule also amends the FAA's regulations concerning pilot certificates to allow the conversion of a foreign pilot license to a U.S. pilot certificate under the provisions of a Bilateral Aviation Safety Agreement (BASA) and Implementing Procedures for Licensing (IPL). The FAA has determined these amendments are needed to enhance safety, respond to changes in the aviation industry, and reduce unnecessary regulatory burdens.

Airworthiness Directives; 328 Support Services GmbH (Type Certificate Previously Held by AvCraft Aerospace GmbH; Fairchild Dornier GmbH; Dornier Luftfahrt GmbH) Model 328-100 Airplanes
Document Number: 2011-22226
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-08-31
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This proposed AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated 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:
Airworthiness Directives; Cessna Aircraft Company Model 680 Airplanes
Document Number: 2011-22225
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-08-31
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This proposed AD would require adding diodes to the fuel cross-feed wiring, and revising the airplane flight manual to include procedures to use when the left or right generator is selected OFF. This proposed AD was prompted by a false cross-feed command to the right-hand fuel control card, due to the cross-feed inputs on the left- and right-hand fuel control cards being connected together and causing an imbalance of fuel between the left and right wing tanks. We are proposing this AD to prevent lateral imbalance of the airplane, which can be corrected by deflecting the aileron trim, but which increases the pilot's workload. Uncontrolled fuel cross-feed results in lateral imbalance that could exceed the airplane's limitation in a short period of time. Exceeding the lateral imbalance limit could result in reduced control of the airplane.

Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards; Seat Belt Assemblies
Document Number: 2011-21949
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-08-29
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
This document denies a petition for rulemaking submitted by Mr. Michael R. Schramm, to amend the Federal motor vehicle safety standard on seat belt assemblies, to include a requirement that seat belts be releasable without unbuckling. We are denying the petition because the petitioner did not demonstrate a safety need for such a requirement or show how such a requirement could be implemented without increasing inadvertent release of seat belts during normal vehicle operation and certain crash scenarios, resulting in increased risk to vehicle occupants.
Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards: Occupant Crash Protection
Document Number: 2011-21946
Type: Rule
Date: 2011-08-29
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
This final rule amends the Federal motor vehicle safety standard (FMVSS) on occupant crash protection to remove the sunset of a requirement that a vehicle's lap belt must be lockable, without the use of special tools, to tightly secure a child restraint system (CRS). We refer to this as the ``lockability'' requirement. Under the current standard, the lockability requirement ceases to apply to seating positions that are equipped with a child restraint anchorage system (commonly referred to as a ``LATCH'' system) on vehicles manufactured on or after September 1, 2012. Because data indicate that motorists are still using lockable belts to install CRSs even in seating positions with LATCH, there is a continuing need for the lockability requirement even in seating positions with LATCH. Thus, this final rule ensures that the lockability requirement continues in effect for all seating positions past September 1, 2012.

Airworthiness Directives; Viking Air Limited (Type Certificate No. A-815 Formerly Held by Bombardier Inc. and de Havilland, Inc.)
Document Number: 2011-21876
Type: Rule
Date: 2011-08-29
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for all Viking Air Limited (type certificate No. A-815 formerly held by Bombardier Inc. and de Havilland, Inc.) Model DHC-3 airplanes. That AD currently requires repetitively inspecting the elevator control tabs for discrepancies, taking necessary corrective actions to bring all discrepancies within acceptable tolerances, and reporting certain inspection results to the FAA. This new AD retains the actions currently required in AD 2011-05-02 and removes the Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) SA01059SE condition in the Applicability section. This AD was prompted by our determination that we inadvertently omitted certain airplanes from the Applicability section. We are issuing this AD to correct the unsafe condition on these products.
