The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes to rule and invites public comment on the application for a release of approximately 16.02 acres of airport property at the Fresno Yosemite International Airport, Fresno, California from all conditions contained in the Grant Assurances since the parcels of land is not needed for airport purposes.

Airworthiness Directives; Pratt & Whitney (PW) Division Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2012-5094
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2012-03-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain PW4000 series turbofan engines. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of 3rd and 4th stage vane fractures in the low pressure turbine (LPT) of certain PW4000-94'' and PW4000-100'' turbofan engines. These fractures caused an uncontained engine failure, an LPT case puncture, and multiple in flight shutdowns. We are proposing this AD to prevent 3rd and 4th stage vane fractures in the LPT, which could damage the LPT rotor and lead to an uncontained engine failure and damage to the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Hawker Beechcraft Corporation Airplanes
Document Number: 2012-5086
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2012-03-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Hawker Beechcraft Corporation Models 58 and G58 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by installation of oversized clamps on fuel vapor return and/or fuel vent lines in the outboard sections of the left and right wings. This proposed AD would require inspecting for oversized or deformed fuel hose clamps and replacing as necessary. We are proposing this AD to correct the unsafe condition on these products.
