Federal Aviation Administration July 9, 2012 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Special Conditions: Boeing, Model 737-800; Large Non-Structural Glass in the Passenger Compartment
Document Number: 2012-16720
Type: Rule
Date: 2012-07-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These special conditions are issued for the Boeing Model 737- 800 airplane. This airplane as modified by Lufthansa Technik will have a novel or unusual design feature associated with the installation of large non-structural glass items in the cabin area of an executive interior occupied by passengers and crew. The installation of these items in a passenger compartment, which can be occupied during taxi, takeoff, and landing, is a novel or unusual design feature with respect to the material used. The applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for this design feature. These special conditions contain the additional safety standards that the Administrator considers necessary to establish a level of safety equivalent to that established by the existing airworthiness standards.

Notice of a Non-Aeronautical Land-Use Change Effecting the Quitclaim Deed and Federal Grant Assurance Obligations at Delano Municipal Airport, Delano, CA
Document Number: 2012-16691
Type: Notice
Date: 2012-07-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes to rule and invites public comment on the application for a non-aeronautical land- use change for approximately 38 acres of airport property at Delano Municipal Airport, Delano, California, from the aeronautical use provisions of the Quitclaim Deed and Grant Agreement Assurances since the land is not needed for aeronautical purposes. The property will be leased for its fair market value and the rental proceeds deposited in the airport account for airport use. The reuse of the land for a solar farm and the non-aeronautical use of an old administrative building represent compatible land uses that will not interfere with the airport or its operation, thereby protecting the interests of civil aviation and contributing to the self-sustainability of the airport.

Only a minimal amount of data is requested to identify the affected parties and determine whether the purpose for the flight is one of those enumerated by law.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2012-16668
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2012-07-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are revising an earlier proposed airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 747-400, -400D, and -400F series airplanes. That NPRM proposed to require repetitive operational tests of the engine fuel suction feed of the fuel system, and other related testing if necessary. That NPRM was prompted by reports of two in-service occurrences on Model 737-400 airplanes of total loss of boost pump pressure of the fuel feed system, followed by loss of fuel system suction feed capability on one engine, and in-flight shutdown of the engine. This action revises that NPRM by proposing to require repetitive operational tests and corrective actions if necessary. We are proposing this supplemental NPRM to detect and correct loss of the engine fuel suction feed capability of the fuel system, which in the event of total loss of the fuel boost pumps could result in dual engine flameout, inability to restart the engines, and consequent forced landing of the airplane. Since these actions impose an additional burden over that proposed in the previous NPRM, we are reopening the comment period to allow the public the chance to comment on these proposed changes.
