Notice of Land Use Change and Release of Grant Assurance Restrictions at the Reid Hill View Airport and San Martin Airport, Santa Clara County, California
Document Number: 2017-10567
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-05-23
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes to rule and invites public comment on the application for a land-use change for approximately 2.7 acres of airport property at Reid Hill View Airport, and approximately 2.999 acres at San Martin Airport, Santa Clara County, California. The land use change will allow a partial release of airport land from the aeronautical use provisions of the Grant Assurances that require it to serve an airport purposes since the land is not needed for aeronautical uses. The land for partial release is 2.7 acres of a 55.09 acre parcel at Reid Hill View Airport and is currently vacant. The land for partial release is 2.999 acres of a 63.79 acre parcel at San Martin Airport and is also currently vacant. Solar systems will be placed on the leased parcels to generate clean renewable energy for Santa Clara County. In return, fair market value rent will be paid as lease revenue at both airports. This project will serve the interest of civil aviation by contributing to the self- sustainability of the two airports.

Commercial Driver's License Standards: Application for Exemption; Daimler Trucks North America (Daimler)
Document Number: 2017-10554
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-05-23
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA announces its decision to grant an exemption to Daimler Trucks North America (Daimler) for one of its commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers. Daimler requested a 5-year exemption from the Federal requirement to hold a U.S. commercial driver's license (CDL) for Mr. Kai Zeuner, a project engineer for the Daimler Trucks and Bus Division. Mr. Zeuner holds a valid German commercial license and wants to test- drive Daimler vehicles on U.S. roads to better understand product requirements for these systems in ``real world'' environments, and verify results. Daimler believes the requirements for a German commercial license ensure that holders of the license will likely achieve a level of safety equal to or greater than that of drivers who hold a U.S. State-issued CDL.

Airworthiness Directives; Embraer S.A. Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-10136
Type: Proposed Rule

We are revising an earlier notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to supersede an Airworthiness Directive (AD) for all Embraer S.A. Model ERJ 190-100 STD, -100 LR, and -100 IGW airplanes; and Model ERJ 190-200 STD, -200 LR, and -200 IGW airplanes. This action revises the NPRM by adding a requirement to revise the maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new airworthiness limitations and adding certain airplanes to the applicability. We are proposing this airworthiness directive (AD) to address the unsafe condition on these products. Since these actions impose an additional burden over those proposed in the NPRM, we are reopening the comment period to allow the public the chance to comment on these proposed changes.

This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections of each anti-ice piccolo tube and corrective action if necessary. This proposed AD also provides an optional terminating action for the repetitive inspections. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2014-08- 01, for all Airbus Model A318, A319, A320, and A321 series airplanes. AD 2014-08-01 currently requires an inspection for part numbers of the interconnecting struts and, for affected interconnecting struts, identification of the part and serial numbers of the associated target and proximity sensors and replacement or re-identification of the flap interconnecting strut if necessary. Since we issued AD 2014-08-01, we have determined that certain airplanes must be inspected to verify the interconnecting strut part number. This proposed AD would add airplanes to the applicability. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model BD-100-1A10 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of low clearance in the aft equipment bay between auxiliary power unit (APU) generator power cables and a hydraulic line, which can cause damage to wire insulation. This proposed AD would require an inspection of the APU generator power cables and the adjacent hydraulic line for damage, and repair, if necessary; and modification of the APU generator power cable installation. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
