Document Number: 05-11047
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-06-03
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 McDonnell Douglas transport category airplanes. The proposed AD would have required replacement with new, improved parts of the inboard flap, outboard hinge, forward attach bracket, and lower attach bolt assemblies. The proposed AD also would have required an inspection for certain parts, and related investigative and corrective actions if necessary. Since the proposed AD was issued, we have confirmed data indicating that an existing AD adequately addresses the unsafe condition. Accordingly, the proposed AD is withdrawn.
Airworthiness Directives; Empresa Brasileira de Aeronautica S.A. (EMBRAER) Model ERJ 170 Series Airplanes
Document Number: 05-11046
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-06-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all EMBRAER Model ERJ 170 series airplanes. This proposed AD would require inspecting the hydraulic pressure tubes at the outlet of the engine-driven hydraulic pumps to determine the part and serial numbers; and replacing hydraulic pressure tubes having certain serial numbers with new hydraulic pressure tubes. This proposed AD is prompted by failure of a hydraulic system due to leakage of hydraulic fluid from a crack in the pipe coming from the pressure side of the engine driven pump. We are proposing this AD to prevent cracking of the hydraulic pressure pipes, which could result in failure of hydraulic system 1 or 2 or both, and consequent reduced controllability of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; The New Piper Aircraft, Inc., Models PA-28-160, PA-28-161, PA-28-180, and PA-28-181 Airplanes
Document Number: 05-10948
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-06-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The New Piper Aircraft, Inc. (Piper) Models PA-28-160, PA- 28-161, PA-28-180, and PA-28-181 airplanes that incorporate Petersen Aviation, Inc. Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) SA2660CE installed between April 20, 1998, and April 1, 2005, and incorporate Petersen Aviation, Inc. Service Bulletin SB98-1. This proposed AD would require you to replace the AN894-6-4 bushing screw thread expanders on the gascolator and bushing attached to the inlet of the top fuel pump with NAS1564-6-4J reducers and AN818-6 nuts. This proposed AD results from reports of fuel leaks during the post STC installation tests. We are issuing this proposed AD to prevent fuel fittings used in STC SA2660CE from leaking fuel in the engine compartment, which could result in an engine fire. This condition could lead to loss of control of the airplane.

Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Eagle, CO
Document Number: 05-10905
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-06-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This proposal would establish Class E airspace at Eagle, CO. Additional Class E airspace is necessary to accommodate aircraft using a new Instrument Landing System or Localizer Distance Measuring Equipment (ILS or LOC.DME) Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAP) at Eagle County Regional Airport. This change is necessary for the safety of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) aircraft executing the new SIAP at Eagle County Regional Airport, Eagle, CO.
Establishment of Area Navigation Routes; FL
Document Number: 05-10904
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-06-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action establishes seven high altitude area navigation (RNAV) routes in Florida in support of the High Altitude Redesign (HAR) program. The FAA originally proposed to establish eight routes as part of this action, but one route was deleted due to operational problems with the route alignment. The FAA is taking this action to enhance safety and to facilitate the more flexible and efficient use of the navigable airspace within the Jacksonville Air Route Traffic Control Center's (ARTCC) area of responsibility.
Proposed Federal Aviation Administration Order 8100.14A, Interim Procedures for Working With the European Community on Airworthiness Certification and Continued Airworthiness

Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This notice announces the availability of and requests comments on proposed Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Order 8100.14A, Interim Procedures for Working with the European Community on Airworthiness Certification and Continued Airworthiness. The proposed revision will replace FAA Order 8100.14; Interim Procedures for Working with the European Community on Airworthiness Certification and Continued Airworthiness dated September 30, 2003. The proposed revised Order provides guidance to Aircraft Certification Field Offices personnel on how to work with their counterparts in the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the National Aviation Authorities (NAA) of European Union Member States.
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.
