Airworthiness Directives; Short Brothers & Harland Ltd. Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-28700
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-12-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Short Brothers & Harland Ltd. Model SC-7 Series 3 airplanes. 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 fatigue cracking, which could lead to structural failure of the nose landing gear (NLG). We are issuing this proposed AD to require actions to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Pacific Aerospace Limited Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-28699
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-12-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Pacific Aerospace Limited (PAL) Model 750XL airplanes. 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 PAL Model 750XL airplanes manufactured with only one attitude indicator. A second attitude indicator is required for flights under instrument flight rules. We are issuing this proposed AD to require actions to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Qualification of Drivers; Exemption Applications; Vision
Document Number: 2014-28694
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-12-08
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA announces its decision to renew the exemptions from the vision requirement in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations for 10 individuals. FMCSA has statutory authority to exempt individuals from the vision requirement if the exemptions granted will not compromise safety. The Agency has concluded that granting these exemption renewals will provide a level of safety that is equivalent to or greater than the level of safety maintained without the exemptions for these commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers.
Qualification of Drivers; Exemption Applications; Vision
Document Number: 2014-28689
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-12-08
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA announces its decision to exempt 33 individuals from the vision requirement in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs). They are unable to meet the vision requirement in one eye for various reasons. The exemptions will enable these individuals to operate commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) in interstate commerce without meeting the prescribed vision requirement in one eye. The Agency has concluded that granting these exemptions will provide a level of safety that is equivalent to or greater than the level of safety maintained without the exemptions for these CMV drivers.
