Airworthiness Directives; Cessna Model 500, 501, 550, S550, 551, and 560 Airplanes
Document Number: 05-21309
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-10-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is revising an earlier proposed airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Cessna Model 500, 501, 550, S550, 551, and 560 airplanes. The original NPRM would have required revising the airplane flight manual (AFM) to prohibit use of the wing fuel boost pumps for defueling under certain conditions; installing a placard; doing other specified investigative and corrective actions as necessary; and modifying the boost pumps. The original NPRM also would have required the subsequent removal of the AFM revision and placard. The original NPRM resulted from a report of a chafed electrical wiring harness, which was arcing inside the fuel tank. This action revises the original NPRM by identifying certain service information not identified in the original NPRM. We are proposing this supplemental NPRM to prevent potential fuel vapor ignition in a fuel tank, which could result in explosion and loss of the airplane.

Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Tok Junction, AK
Document Number: 05-21232
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-10-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to establish new Class E airspace at Tok Junction, AK. Two new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) are being published for the Tok Junction Airport. There is no existing Class E airspace to contain aircraft executing the new instrument procedures at Tok Junction, AK. Adoption of this proposal would result in the establishment of Class E airspace upward from 700 feet (ft.) and 1,200 ft. above the surface at Tok Junction, AK.
Establishment of Class E Airspace; Deering, AK
Document Number: 05-21231
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-10-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action establishes Class E airspace at Deering, AK to provide adequate controlled airspace to contain aircraft executing four new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs). This rule results in new Class E airspace upward from 700 feet (ft.) and 1,200 ft. above the surface at Deering, AK.
Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Nondalton, AK
Document Number: 05-21230
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-10-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to establish new Class E airspace at Nondalton, AK. One new Standard Instrument Approach Procedure (SIAPs) and one Departure Procedure (DP) are being published for the Nondalton Airport. There is no existing Class E airspace to contain aircraft executing the new instrument procedures at Nondalton, AK. Adoption of this proposal would result in the establishment of Class E airspace upward from 700 feet (ft.) above the surface at Nondalton, AK.

There is no existing Class E airspace to contain aircraft executing the new instrument procedures at New Stuyahok, AK. Adoption of this proposal would result in the establishment of Class E airspace upward from 700 feet (ft.) above the surface at New Stuyahok, AK.
Proposed Revision of Class E Airspace; Koliganek, AK
Document Number: 05-21228
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-10-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to revise Class E airspace at Koliganek, AK. Two new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) are being published for the Koliganek Airport. Additional Class E Airspace is needed to contain aircraft executing instrument approaches at Koliganek Airport. Adoption of this proposal would result in additional Class E airspace upward from 1,200 feet (ft.) above the surface at Koliganek, AK.

The FAA proposes to rule and invites public comment on the application to impose a PFC at MCI for use at MCI and MKC under the provisions of the 49 U.S.C. 40117 and Part 158 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR Part 158).
Wet Lease Policy Guidance
Document Number: 05-21226
Type: Notice
Date: 2005-10-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
It has long been contrary to Federal Aviation Regulations for an air carrier to ``wet lease'' an aircraft from an individual or entity that is not separately authorized to engage in common carriage. By this notice, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) seeks comment on proposed policy guidance identifying those commercial arrangements that would be considered to be unlawful wet lease arrangements under these regulations as well as those that would be permissible. Additionally, we seek comment on our proposed treatment of certain other commercial arrangements between air carriers and aircraft owners thatwhile not amounting to illegal wet leasescould nevertheless result in the air carrier impermissibly ceding operational control of flight to non-certificated entities.
Airworthiness Directives; Gippsland Aeronautics Pty. Ltd. Model GA8 Airplanes
Document Number: 05-21176
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-10-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Gippsland Aeronautics Pty. Ltd. (Gippsland) Model GA8 airplanes. This AD requires you to repetitively inspect the upper and lower grooves of the forward cargo door slide for cracks, excessive wear, and excessive width. This AD also requires you to replace the forward cargo door slide if any of the above conditions are found during any inspection. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by the airworthiness authority for Australia. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the forward cargo door slide caused by cracks, excessive wear, or excessive width. This failure could result in the cargo door detaching from the airplane in flight, potentially causing damage by hitting the back end of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce Corporation (Formerly Allison Engine Company) 501-D22A, 501-D22C, and 501-D22G Turboprop Engines
Document Number: 05-21173
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-10-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Rolls-Royce Corporation (RRC) (formerly Allison Engine Company) 501- D22A, 501-D22C, and 501-D22G turboprop engines. This AD requires a onetime inspection for proper metal hardness of certain 1st stage, 2nd stage, 3rd stage, and 4th stage turbine wheels. This AD results from a report of a turbine wheel found to be over dimensional limits, caused by improper metal hardness. We are issuing this AD to prevent uncontained turbine wheel failure, leading to damage of the airplane and total loss of engine power.
