Approval of Noise Compatibility Program; Capital City Airport, Lansing, MI
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces its findings on the noise compatibility program submitted by Capital Region Airport Authority under the provisions of 49 U.S.C. (the Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act, hereinafter referred to as ``the Act'') and 14 CFR part 150. These findings are made in recognition of the description of Federal and nonfederal responsibilities in Senate Report No. 96-52 (1980). On February 7, 2005 the FAA determined that the noise exposure maps submitted by Capital Region Airport Authority under part 150 were in compliance with applicable requirements. On August 5, 2005, the FAA approved the Capital City Airport noise compatibility program. All of the recommendations of the program were approved. No program elements relating to new or revised flight procedures for noise abatement were proposed by the airport operator.
Agency Information Collection Activities Under OMB Review
In compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), this notice announces that the Information Collection Requests (ICR) abstracted below have been forwarded to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for extension of the currently approved collections. The ICR describes the nature of the information collection and the expected burden. The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on the following collections of information was published on May 25, 2005, page 30180.
Receipt of Noise Compatibility Program and Request for Review
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces that it is reviewing a proposed noise compatibility program that was submitted for Santa Barbara Airport under the provisions of 49 U.S.C. 47501 et seq. (the Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act, hereinafter referred to as ``the Act'') and 14 CFR part 150 by City of Santa Barbara. This program was submitted subsequent to a determination by FAA that associated noise exposure maps submitted under 14 CFR part 150 for Santa Barbara Airport were in compliance with applicable requirements, effective June 28, 2005, (FR Vol. 69 pages 40452-40453 published on July 2, 2004). The proposed noise compatibility program will be approved or disapproved on or before January 29, 2006.
Airworthiness Directives; Shadin ADC-2000 Air Data Computers
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Shadin ADC-2000 air data computers (ADC) installed on airplanes. This proposed AD would require you to replace affected ADC- 2000 units with a modified unit. This proposed AD results from reports that certain ADC-2000 units display incorrect altitude information on the Electronic Flight Information System (EFIS) to the pilot. We are issuing this proposed AD to prevent ADC-2000 units, part numbers (P/Ns) 962830A-1-S-8, 962830A-2-S-8, and 962830A-3-S-8, configurations B, C, and D, from displaying incorrect altitude information. This could cause the flight crew to react to this incorrect flight information and possibly result in an unsafe operating condition.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A319-100 Series Airplanes, Model A320-111 Airplanes, Model A320-200 Series Airplanes, and Model A321-100 Series Airplanes
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Airbus Model A319-100 series airplanes, Model A320-111 airplanes, Model A320-200 series airplanes, and Model A321-100 series airplanes equipped with any additional center tank (ACT). This proposed AD would require identifying the part number of the ACT and, for certain ACTs, replacing the outer ACT manhole cover and seal. This proposed AD is prompted by reports of an ACT fuel transfer failure due to air leakage around the seal of the outer manhole covers of the ACTs. We are proposing this AD to prevent this leakage, which could result in fuel or fuel vapor leaking into the cargo compartment, and consequent increased risk of a fire in the cargo compartment.
Airworthiness Directives; Empresa Brasileira de Aeronautica S.A. (EMBRAER) Model EMB-135BJ, -135ER, -135KE, -135KL, -135LR, -145, -145ER, -145MR, -145LR, -145XR, -145MP, and -145EP Airplanes
The FAA is revising an earlier NPRM for an airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to certain EMBRAER airplane models as identified above. The original NPRM would have required modifying the total air temperature (TAT) sensor heating system. The original NPRM was prompted by a report indicating that the fully automated digital electronic control (FADEC) unit failed to compensate for ice accretion on the engine fan blades due to a false temperature signal from the TAT sensor to the FADEC. This action revises the original NPRM by requiring modification of additional electrical connections for the TAT sensor heating system. This action also would expand the applicability of the original NPRM because the additional electrical connections must be modified on airplanes that had the TAT sensor heating system modified previously (e.g., in production). This action also adds replacing the FADEC assemblies with new or modified assemblies as an additional means of compliance. We are proposing this supplemental NPRM to prevent failure of the TAT sensor, which could result in insufficient thrust to take off or (if coupled with the loss of an engine during takeoff) to abort the takeoff in a safe manner, and consequent reduced controllability of the airplane.
