Airworthiness Directives; Air Tractor, Inc. Models AT-602, AT-802, and AT-802A Airplanes
Document Number: E7-12627
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-07-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) that supersedes AD 2006-22-08, which applies to all Air Tractor, Inc. (Air Tractor) Models AT-602, AT-802, and AT-802A airplanes. AD 2006-22-08 currently requires you to repetitively inspect the engine mount for any cracks, repair or replace any cracked engine mount, and report any cracks found to the FAA. Since we issued AD 2006-22-08, the FAA has received reports of two Model AT- 802A airplanes with cracked engine mounts below the initial compliance time in AD 2006-22-08. The FAA has determined that an initial inspection is required when the airplane reaches a total of 1,300 hours time-in-service (TIS) instead of 4,000 hours TIS required by AD 2006- 22-08. Consequently, this AD retains the actions of AD 2006-22-08 while requiring the initial inspection when the airplane reaches a total of 1,300 hours TIS. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct cracks in the engine mount, which could result in failure of the engine mount. Such failure could lead to separation of the engine from the airplane.

Agency Information Collection Activity Seeking OMB Approval
Document Number: 07-3256
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-07-05
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA invites public comments about our intention to request the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) revision of a current information collection. The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on the following collection of information was published on March 26, 2007, vol. 72, no. 57, page 14162. This collection establishes requirements for the certification, operation, and maintenance of light-sport aircraft.
Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 747-400, 747-400D, and 747-400F Series Airplanes; Model 757-200 Series Airplanes; and Model 767-200, 767-300, and 767-300F Series Airplanes
Document Number: E7-12836
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-07-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Boeing Model 747-400, 747-400D, 747-400F, 757-200, 767-200, 767-300, and 767-300F series airplanes. This proposed AD would require inspecting to determine the date code of the time delay relay for the cargo fire suppression system, and replacing the relay if necessary. This proposed AD results from a report indicating that failure of a time delay relay on an ELMS (electrical load management system) panel led to testing of other time delay relays at Boeing and at the supplier. Similar relays are used in the cargo fire suppression system. The time delay relay controls when the fire bottles discharge. We are proposing this AD to ensure there is sufficient fire suppressant to control a cargo fire if the airplane is more than the relay delay time from a suitable airport, which could result in an uncontrollable fire in the cargo compartment.
Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 777-200, -200LR, -300, and -300ER Series Airplanes
Document Number: E7-12835
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-07-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Boeing Model 777-200, -200LR, -300, and -300ER series airplanes. This proposed AD would require revising the Airworthiness Limitations (AWLs) section of the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness by incorporating new limitations for fuel tank systems to satisfy Special Federal Aviation Regulation No. 88 requirements. This proposed AD also would require the initial performance of certain repetitive inspections specified in the AWLs to phase in those inspections, and repair if necessary. This proposed AD results from a design review of the fuel tank systems. We are proposing this AD to prevent the potential for ignition sources inside fuel tanks caused by latent failures, alterations, repairs, or maintenance actions, which, in combination with flammable fuel vapors, could result in fuel tank explosions and consequent loss of the airplane.

Modification of Restricted Areas 3601A and 3601B; Brookville, KS
Document Number: E7-12703
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-07-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action revises Restricted Areas 3601A (R-3601A) and 3601B (R-3601B), at Brookville, KS, in response to a request from the United States Air Force (USAF). Specifically, this action revises R-3601A and R-3601B by combining their lateral boundaries, expanding the ceiling to flight level 230 (FL230), and re-designating the lower portion of the combined area as R-3601A and the upper portion as R-3601B. Additionally, this action changes the using agency of R-3601A and R- 3601B from ``Commander, Kansas ANG, McConnell AFB, KS'' to ``Air National Guard, 184th Air Refueling Wing, Detachment 1, Smoky Hill ANG Range, Salina, KS.'' These revisions will fulfill new USAF requirements for high altitude release bomb training for fighter aircraft and medium-to-high altitude release bomb training for bombers.
