Noise Exposure Map Notice
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces its determination that the noise exposure maps submitted by the City of Dayton for the Dayton International Airport under the provisions of 49 U.S.C. 47501 et seq. Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act) and 14 CFR part 150 are in compliance with applicable requirements.
Establishment of Class E Airspace; Chehalis, WA
This final rule will establish Class E airspace at Chehalis, WA. This additional Class E airspace is necessary to accommodate the new Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) Standard Instrument Approach Procedure (SIAP) at Chehalis-Centralia Airport. This change will improve the safety of Instrument Flight rules (IFR) aircraft executing the new RNAV GPS SIAP at Chehalis-Centralia Airport, Chelialis, WA.
Aviation Financing Reauthorization
The current taxes and fees paid into the Aviation Trust Fund, which provide funding for the National Aviation System, are only authorized through September 30, 2007. Since there is only a small and declining balance in the Trust Fund, it is critical that the financing not be allowed to lapse. The new financing structure should generate stable and predictable revenue, maintain the appropriate levels of service, and enable FAA to make long-term investments and tie revenues raised for the system to the infrastructure and operational costs of the system. The FAA has developed a series of data packages in examining FAA costs, paid for through the Trust Fund, from a managerial reporting standpoint. These packages will advance everyone's understanding of FAA costs and what the Agency faces as it considers a range of future funding options. They are available at http:// www.faa.gov/about /officeorg/ headquartersoffices/aep/aatf/.
Airworthiness Directives; BAe Systems (Operations) Limited Model ATP Airplanes
The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD), which applies to all BAe Systems (Operations) Limited Model ATP airplanes. That AD currently requires revising the Airworthiness Limitations Section (ALS) of the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness to incorporate life limits for certain items and inspections to detect fatigue cracking in certain structures. This new AD requires a revision to the ALS of the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness to incorporate new inspections to detect fatigue cracking of certain significant structural items (SSIs) and to revise life limits for certain equipment and various components. This AD is prompted by a determination that existing inspection techniques are not adequate for certain SSIs and by the revision of certain life limits. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct fatigue cracking of certain structural elements, which could adversely affect the structural integrity of these airplanes.
Airworthiness Directives; Raytheon Aircraft Company Models 1900, 1900C, 1900C (C-12J), and 1900D Airplanes
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Raytheon Aircraft Company Models 1900, 1900C, 1900C (C-12J), and 1900D airplanes. This AD requires you to inspect all elevator hinge support attachments on both left and right elevators for loose and missing rivets, replace rivets if loose or missing rivets are found, inspect the elevator hinge joints for looseness and clearance of each elevator to its stabilizer, correct looseness and clearance if incorrect, and report results of the required inspections. This AD results from a report of excessive movement of the elevator and elevator trim. The hinge support attachment that attaches the elevator to the horizontal stabilizer was loose and had loose and missing rivets. The elevator counterweight horn showed evidence of rubbing against the horizontal stabilizer, indicating possible incorrect clearance. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct any looseness in the elevator hinge support attachments, which could result in binding of the elevator control system. This elevator binding could lead to loss of control of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Raytheon Aircraft Company Model 390 Premier 1 Airplanes
The FAA adopts a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Raytheon Aircraft Company (Raytheon) Premier 1 390 airplanes. This AD requires you to verify minimum clearances to correct chafing conditions in the powerplant left-hand and right-hand engine installations. This AD results from reports of inadequate left-hand and right-hand engine assembly cable, wire, and hose routing clearance. We are issuing this 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.
