Airworthiness Directives; Honeywell International Inc. Turboprop and Turboshaft Engines
Document Number: 2017-19314
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-09-13
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Honeywell International Inc. TPE331 turboprop and TSE331 turboshaft engines. This proposed AD was prompted by recent reports of failures of the direct drive fuel control gears and bearings in the hydraulic torque sensor gear assembly, part number (P/N) 3101726-3. This proposed AD would require initial and repetitive engine oil filter sampling and analysis of the affected engines. This proposed AD would also require inspection of hydraulic torque sensor gear assemblies that do not meet oil filter inspection requirements. This proposed AD would further require improved component overhaul procedures that would remove from service, by attrition, certain P/N hydraulic torque sensor gear assemblies. We are proposing this AD to correct the unsafe condition on these products.

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Helicopters
Document Number: 2017-18973
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-09-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede airworthiness directive (AD) 2015-22- 53 for Airbus Helicopters (Airbus) Model AS350B3 helicopters. AD 2015- 22-53 requires revising the rotorcraft flight manual (RFM) to perform the yaw load compensator check after rotor shut-down and to state that the yaw servo hydraulic switch must be in the ``ON'' position before taking off. Since we issued AD 2015-22-53, Airbus developed a modification of the ACCU TST switch. This proposed AD would retain the requirements of AD 2015-22-53 and require modifying the yaw servo hydraulic switch (collective switch) and replacing the ACCU TST button. The actions of this proposed AD are intended to address an unsafe condition on these products.

FMCSA announces that it has received an application from the National Asphalt Pavement Association, (Inc.) (NAPA) requesting exemptions from two requirements of the hours-of-service (HOS) regulations for drivers of certain commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) operated by NAPA members, the 30-minute rest break provision and the requirement that short-haul drivers utilizing the record of duty status (RODS) exception return to their work-reporting location within 12 hours of coming on duty. The first exemption would enable drivers engaged in the transportation of asphalt and related materials to use 30 minutes or more of on-duty ``waiting time'' to satisfy the requirement for the 30-minute rest break, provided they do not perform any other work during the break. The second exemption would allow these drivers to use the short-haul exception but return to their work- reporting location within 14 hours instead of the usual 12 hours. FMCSA requests public comment on NAPA's application for exemptions.
