Document Number: 05-19596
Type: Notice
Date: 2005-09-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces its determination that the noise exposure maps submitted by the City of Laredo for Laredo 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.
Airworthiness Directives; Cessna Model 500, 550, S550, 560, 560XL, and 750 Airplanes
Document Number: 05-19568
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-09-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Cessna Model 500, 550, S550, 560, 560XL, and 750 airplanes. This proposed AD would require installing identification sleeves on the wires for the positive and negative terminal studs of the engine and/or auxiliary power unit (APU) fire extinguishing bottles, as applicable, and re-connecting the wires to the correct terminal studs. This proposed AD results from a report of mis-wired fire extinguishing bottles. We are proposing this AD to ensure that the fire extinguishing bottles are activated in the event of an engine or APU fire, and that flammable fluids are not supplied during a fire, which could result in an unextinguished fire in the nacelle or APU.
Airworthiness Directives; Empresa Brasileira de Aeronautica S.A. (EMBRAER) Model ERJ 170 Airplanes
Document Number: 05-19567
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-09-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain EMBRAER Model ERJ 170 airplanes. This proposed AD would require doing a general visual inspection of the passenger seat track attachments to determine if the attachment rod is installed and to check the torque value of the attachment bolts, and doing any corrective actions if necessary. This proposed AD results from the finding of missing rods, which attach the passenger seat tracks to the airplane structure to absorb loads. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct missing attachment rods, which could result in reducing the ability of the seat to withstand a hard landing or rejected takeoff and possible injury to passengers.
Airworthiness Directives; Dassault Model Falcon 2000 Airplanes Equipped With CFE Company CFE738-1-1B Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 05-19566
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-09-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Dassault Model Falcon 2000 airplanes equipped with CFE Company CFE738-1-1B turbofan engines. This proposed AD would require determining the serial number of the engines installed on the airplane, inspecting any affected engine to verify that a spherical bearing is installed on the attachment fitting of the engine mount, and corrective action if necessary. This proposed AD results from a report of a missing spherical bearing on the attachment fitting of the front engine mount on an in-service airplane, and subsequent damage and abnormal fatigue of the attachment fitting. We are proposing this AD to prevent reduced structural integrity of the engine mount, which could result in possible separation of an engine from the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; McDonnell Douglas Model MD-11 and MD-11F Airplanes
Document Number: 05-19565
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-09-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to supersede an existing airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to certain McDonnell Douglas Model MD-11 and MD-11F airplanes. The existing AD currently requires replacement of the upper and lower reading lights in the forward crew rest area with a redesigned light fixture. This proposed AD would add airplanes to the applicability of the existing AD. This proposed AD results from a report of the old reading lights being inadvertently sent to an additional ten airplanes. We are proposing this AD to prevent a possible flammable condition, which could result in smoke and fire in the forward crew rest area.
Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 747-100, 747-100B, 747-100B SUD, 747-200B, 747-200C, 747-200F, 747-300, 747SR, and 747SP Series Airplanes
Document Number: 05-19564
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-09-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is correcting a typographical error in an existing airworthiness directive (AD) that was published in the Federal Register on September 15, 2005 (70 FR 54474). The error resulted in an inadvertent reference to a nonexistent paragraph. This AD applies to certain Boeing Model 747-100, 747-100B, 747-100B SUD, 747-200B, 747- 200C, 747-200F, 747-300, 747SR, and 747SP series airplanes. This AD requires repetitive detailed and ultrasonic inspections of the thrust links of the rear engine mounts for any crack or fracture and corrective actions if necessary.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier Model DHC-8-400 Series Airplanes
Document Number: 05-19558
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-09-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is correcting a typographical error in an NPRM that was published in the Federal Register on September 14, 2005 (70 FR 54316). The error resulted in an incorrect Docket No. The NPRM applies to certain Bombardier Model DHC-8-400 series airplanes. The NPRM would require an inspection of the laminated shims for cracks, damage, or extrusion between the forward attachment fittings of the horizontal stabilizer and the top rib of the vertical stabilizer; a torque check of the attachment bolts in the attachment fittings of the front, middle, and rear spars; and corrective actions if necessary.
Airworthiness Directives; Sabreliner Model NA-265, NA-265-20, NA-265-30, NA-265-40, NA-265-50, NA-265-60, NA-265-65, NA-265-70, and NA-265-80 Series Airplanes
Document Number: 05-19557
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-09-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is correcting a typographical error in an NPRM that was published in the Federal Register on September 14, 2005 (70 FR 54318). The error resulted in an incorrect Docket No. The NPRM applies to certain Sabreliner Model NA-265, NA-265-20, NA-265-30, NA-265-40, NA-265-50, NA-265-60, NA-265-65, NA-265-70, and NA-265-80 series airplanes. The NPRM would require repetitive inspections for discrepancies in the front and rear spars of the wing in the area of the wing center section, and in the lugs on the rear spar and wing trailing edge panel rib, and corrective actions if necessary. The NPRM also would require inspections for fuel leaks of the front and rear spars of the wing, and for discrepancies in the front and rear spars of the wing in the area of the wing center section, and in the lugs on the rear spar and wing trailing edge panel rib; and related investigative and corrective actions, if necessary.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A340-200 and -300 Series Airplanes
Document Number: 05-19556
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-09-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is correcting a typographical error in an existing airworthiness directive (AD) that was published in the Federal Register on September 14, 2005 (70 FR 54251). The error resulted in in an incorrect Docket No. This AD applies to certain Airbus Model A340-200 and -300 series airplanes. This AD requires revising the airplane flight manual to incorporate new procedures for the flightcrew to follow to correct miscalculation of the takeoff and accelerating or stopping distance of the airplane during a ferry flight under certain conditions.
