Federal Aviation Administration June 9, 2005 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; Cirrus Design Corporation Model SR20 and SR22 Airplanes
Document Number: 05-11456
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-06-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This document proposes to revise an earlier proposed airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Cirrus Design Corporation (CDC) Model SR20 and SR22 airplanes. The earlier NPRM would have required you to measure and adjust the crew seat break-over bolts and to replace the crew seat recline locks on both crew seats. The earlier NPRM resulted from CDC discovering that the crew seats, under emergency landing dynamic loads, may fold forward at less than the 26 G required by the regulations. Since issuing the earlier NPRM, FAA received and evaluated new service information that increases the serial number effectivity of the earlier NPRM. The new proposed AD includes the additional serial numbers in the applicability section. Since the change imposes an additional burden over that proposed in the earlier NPRM, we are reopening the comment period to allow the public additional time to comment on the proposed AD.
Airworthiness Directives; The Cessna Aircraft Company Models 401, 401A, 401B, 402, 402A, 402B, 402C, 404, 411, 411A, 414, 414A, 421, 421A, 421B, 421C, 425, and 441 Airplanes
Document Number: 05-11454
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-06-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Cessna Aircraft Company (Cessna) Models 401, 401A, 401B, 402, 402A, 402B, 402C, 404, 411, 411A, 414, 414A, 421, 421A, 421B, 421C, 425, and 441 airplanes equipped with certain avionics bus circuit breaker switches. This proposed AD would require you to inspect the avionics bus circuit breaker switch to determine the date code and replace any without a date code. This proposed AD would also impose a 1,000-hour safe life limit on avionics bus circuit breaker switches with a date code earlier than 0434. This proposed AD results from reports of smoke and a burning smell in the cockpit. We are issuing this proposed AD to prevent failure of the avionics bus circuit breaker switch, which could result in smoke and a burning smell in the cockpit. This failure could lead to reduced ability to control the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; General Electric Company CF6-45A, CF6-50A, CF6-50C, and CF6-50E Series Turbofan Engines; Correction
Document Number: 05-11442
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-06-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This document makes a correction to Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2005-07-05. That AD applies to General Electric Company (GE) CF6- 45A, CF6-50A, CF6-50C, and CF6-50E series turbofan engines that have not incorporated GE Service Bulletin (SB) No. CF6-50 S/B 72-1239, Revision 1, dated September 24, 2003, or that have not incorporated paragraph 3.B. of GE SB No. CF6-50 S/B 72-1239, original issue, dated May 29, 2003. We published AD 2005-07-05 in the Federal Register on March 30, 2005, (70 FR 16096). A descriptive phrase was inadvertently left out of compliance paragraph (f). This document corrects compliance paragraph (f). In all other respects, the original document remains the same.
Conducting Component Level Tests To Demonstrate Compliance; Correction
Document Number: 05-11411
Type: Notice
Date: 2005-06-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This document contains a correction to the Notice of final policy on conducting component level tests in order to demonstrate compliance with the requirements of Sec. 25.785(b) and (d), that was published in the Federal Register on May 20, 2005 (70 FR 29374). In the ``Background'' section of that notice, the FAA inadvertently left out a portion of a sentence in the second paragraph. This action corrects that error.
Acceptable Methods of Compliance With Section 25.562(c)(5) for Front Row Passenger Seats
Document Number: 05-11410
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-06-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces the reopening of the comment period on a proposed policy on Acceptable Methods of Compliance with Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 25.562(c)(5) for Front Row Passenger Seats. This reopening is necessary to afford all interested parties an opportunity to further present their views on the proposed policy.
Modification of Restricted Areas 5103A, 5103B, and 5103C and Revocation of Restricted Area 5103D; McGregor, NM
Document Number: 05-10902
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-06-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action corrects a final rule (Airspace Docket No. 04-ASW- 11) published in the Federal Register on December 13, 2004 (69 FR 72113). That action modified Restricted Areas 5103A (R-5103A), 5103B (R-5103B), and 5103C (R-5103C) and revoked Restricted Area 5103D (R-5103D), at the request of the United States (U.S.) Army. Subsequent to the issuance of the final rule, the U.S. Army identified an error in their requested boundaries for R-5103C. This action corrects that error.
