Special Conditions: Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation, Model GV-SP Airplane; Non-Rechargeable Lithium Battery Installations
Document Number: 2017-09202
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-05-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These special conditions are issued for non-rechargeable lithium battery installations on the Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation (Gulfstream) Model GV-SP airplane. Non-rechargeable lithium batteries are a novel or unusual design feature when compared to the state of technology envisioned in the airworthiness standards for transport category airplanes. The applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for this design feature. These special conditions contain the additional safety standards that the Administrator considers necessary to establish a level of safety equivalent to that established by the existing airworthiness standards.
Special Conditions: Gulfstream Aerospace LP, Model Gulfstream G280 Airplane; Non-Rechargeable Lithium Battery Installations
Document Number: 2017-09201
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-05-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These special conditions are issued for non-rechargeable lithium battery installations on the Gulfstream Aerospace LP (GALP) Model Gulfstream G280 airplane, as modified by Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation (Gulfstream). Non-rechargeable lithium batteries are a novel or unusual design feature when compared to the state of technology envisioned in the airworthiness standards for transport category airplanes. The applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for this design feature. These special conditions contain the additional safety standards that the Administrator considers necessary to establish a level of safety equivalent to that established by the existing airworthiness standards.
Airworthiness Directives; SOCATA Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-09042
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-05-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for SOCATA Model TBM 700 airplanes that would supersede AD 2002-19-01. 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 the flight control wheel traveling beyond normal roll control limits and jamming in a position that could cause loss of control. We are issuing this proposed AD to require actions to address the unsafe condition on these products.
