Parts and Accessories Necessary for Safe Operation; Application for an Exemption From Castignoli Enterprises
Document Number: 2018-22704
Type: Notice
Date: 2018-10-19
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announces its decision to grant Castignoli Enterprises' (Castignoli) application for a limited 5-year exemption to allow a sleeper berth to be installed in the bed of a Ford F350 pickup truck that, when operated in combination with certain trailers, is a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) under the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs). A sleeper berth installed in the bed of the pickup truck does not meet the access, location, exit, communication, or occupant restraint requirements for sleeper berths as prescribed in the FMCSRs. The Agency has determined that allowing the sleeper berth to be installed in the bed of the pickup would not have an adverse impact on safety and that adherence to the terms and conditions of the exemption will likely achieve a level of safety equivalent to or greater than the level of safety provided by the regulation.

Airworthiness Directives; ATR-GIE Avions de Transport Régional Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-22153
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-10-16
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2006-07-26, which applied to all ATR-GIE Avions de Transport R[eacute]gional Model ATR42 airplanes. AD 2006-07-26 required a one-time inspection to detect discrepancies (e.g., cracking, loose/sheared fasteners, distortion) on the left-hand and right-hand wings, of the outer wing box upper skin and upper rib feet, and repair if necessary. Since we issued AD 2006- 07-26, after initial findings had suggested the cracking was isolated to a few airplanes, we received reports of cracking in these same areas on other Model ATR42 airplanes. This AD requires repetitive inspections to detect discrepancies on the left-hand and right-hand wings, of the outer wing box upper skin and upper rib feet, and repair if necessary. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
