Federal Aviation Administration June 1, 2005 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; Gulfstream Aerospace LP Model Galaxy and Gulfstream 200 Airplanes
Document Number: 05-10869
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-06-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA withdraws a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) that proposed a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Gulfstream Aerospace LP Model Galaxy and Gulfstream 200 airplanes. That action would have required inspecting for incorrect torque of the retaining bolt of the aft trunnion of the main landing gear (MLG), and for associated damage to certain components, and adjustments or repairs if necessary. Since the issuance of the NPRM, we have received new data that the identified unsafe condition has been corrected on 100% of the affected worldwide fleet. Accordingly, the NPRM is withdrawn.
Airworthiness Directives; Empresa Brasileira de Aeronautica S.A. (EMBRAER) Model ERJ 170 Series Airplanes
Document Number: 05-10868
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-06-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA withdraws a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) that proposed a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all EMBRAER Model ERJ 170 series airplanes. That action would have required inspecting the engine fire handles of the overhead panel in the cockpit, and replacing the engine fire handles if necessary. Since the NPRM was issued, we have received new data that the identified unsafe condition has been corrected on all airplanes that would have been subject to the NPRM. Accordingly, the proposed AD is withdrawn.
Airworthiness Directives; Raytheon Aircraft Company, Model 390, Premier 1 Airplanes
Document Number: 05-10865
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-06-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Raytheon Aircraft Company (Raytheon), Model 390, Premier 1 airplanes. This proposed AD would require you to install a kit to correct chafing conditions in the powerplant left hand and right hand engine installations. This proposed AD results from reports of inadequate left hand and right hand engine assembly cable, wire, and hose routing clearance. We are issuing this proposed AD to detect and correct chafing conditions in the engine installation, which could result in leaking flammable fluids near an ignition source. This failure could lead to fire damage or loss of airplane control.
Safety Approvals
Document Number: 05-10723
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-06-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Aviation Administration proposes to amend commercial space transportation regulations by adding procedures for obtaining a safety approval. Application for a safety approval is voluntary. A safety approval is an FAA determination that a licensed launch or reentry may be conducted using a launch vehicle, reentry vehicle, safety system, process, service, or personnel approved under this part. The safety approval holder could then offer a launch vehicle, reentry vehicle, safety system, process, service, or personnel to prospective launch and reentry licensees for use within a defined and proven envelope. Those licensees would not need added FAA approval of that portion of their license application. Proposed rules are needed to establish the procedures for obtaining a safety approval from the FAA.
