Federal Aviation Administration October 23, 2014 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Special Conditions: Boeing Commercial Airplanes, Model 767-2C Airplane; Interaction of Fuel Systems and Structures
Document Number: 2014-25242
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-10-23
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These special conditions are issued for the Boeing Model 767- 2C airplane. This airplane will have novel or unusual design features when compared to the state of technology envisioned in the airworthiness standards for transport category airplanes. These design features include the addition of four body fuel tanks and a modified fuel management system that, directly or as a result of failure or malfunction, could affect the airplane's structural performance. The applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for these design features. 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.
Special Conditions: Bombardier Aerospace, Models BD-500-1A10 and BD-500-1A11 Series Airplanes; Airplane Electronic System Security Protection From Unauthorized External Access
Document Number: 2014-25241

Date: 2014-10-23
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This document corrects two errors that appeared in Docket No. FAA-2014-0698, Special Conditions No. 25-567-SC, which was published in the Federal Register on September 12, 2014 (79 FR 54574). There is an error in the header information and in one instance of one of the airplane model numbers in the publication.
Special Conditions: Bombardier Aerospace, Models BD-500-1A10 and BD-500-1A11 Series Airplanes; Isolation or Airplane Electronic System Security Protection From Unauthorized Internal Access
Document Number: 2014-25240
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-10-23
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This document corrects two errors that appeared in Docket No. FAA-2014-0666, Special Conditions No. 25-566-SC, which was published in the Federal Register on September 12, 2014 (79 FR 54572).

Special Conditions: Bombardier Aerospace, Models BD-500-1A10 and BD-500-1A11; Composite Wing and Fuel Tank Structure Post-Crash Fire Survivability
Document Number: 2014-25239
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-10-23
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These special conditions are issued for the Bombardier Aerospace, Models BD-500-1A10 and BD-500-1A11 series airplanes. These airplanes will have novel or unusual design features when compared to the state of technology envisioned in the airworthiness standards for transport category airplanes. These design features are composite materials used in the construction of the fuel tank skin and structure, which may behave differently in a post-crash fire than traditional aluminum construction. 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.
Airworthiness Directives; Grob-Werke Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-25226
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-10-23
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Grob-Werke Models G115EG and G120A airplanes. This proposed AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as a defective starter solenoid. We are issuing this proposed AD to require actions to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-25179
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-10-23
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model DHC-8-400 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of hydraulic fluid loss from the reservoir of the main landing gear's (MLG's) alternate extension system. This proposed AD would require inspection for correct assembly of the MLG's alternate extension system reservoir lid, and corrective action if necessary. We are proposing this AD to, in the event of a failure of the primary MLG extension system, prevent failure of the alternate MLG extension system to fully extend the MLG into a down-and-locked position, which could result in collapse of both MLG during touchdown.
Notice of Opportunity To Participate; Criteria and Application Procedures for Participation in the Military Airport Program
Document Number: 2014-25161
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-10-23
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This document announces the criteria, application procedures, and schedule to be applied by the Secretary of Transportation in designating or redesignating, and funding capital development for up to 15 current joint-use or former military airports seeking first time designation or redesignation to participate in the MAP.
Twenty-Eighth Meeting: RTCA Special Committee 224, Airport Security Access Control Systems
Document Number: 2014-25159
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-10-23
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is issuing this notice to advise the public of the twenty-eighth meeting of the RTCA Special Committee 224, Airport Security Access Control Systems.
Third Meeting: RTCA Special Committee 229, 406 MHz Emergency Locator Transmitters (ELTs) Joint With EUROCAE WG-98 Committee
Document Number: 2014-25157
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-10-23
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is issuing this notice to advise the public of the third meeting of the 406 MHz Emergency Locator Transmitters (ELTs) Joint with EUROCAE WG-98 Committee.
Airworthiness Directives; Beechcraft Corporation (Type Certificate Previously Held by Hawker Beechcraft Corporation; Raytheon Aircraft Company; Beech Aircraft Corporation) Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-24963
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-10-23
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Beechcraft Corporation (Type Certificate Previously Held by Hawker Beechcraft Corporation; Raytheon Aircraft Company; Beech Aircraft Corporation) Model 400, 400A, 400T, and MU-300 airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report of a failure of the Acme nut threads in a pitch trim actuator (PTA). This AD requires an inspection to determine if PTAs having a certain serial number and part number are installed, and replacement if they are installed. This AD also requires repetitive replacements of PTAs with new PTAs or certain overhauled PTAs. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the Acme nut threads in the PTA, which could lead to loss of control of pitch trim and reduced controllability of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Pacific Aerospace Limited Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-24698
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-10-23
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Pacific Aerospace Limited Model FU24-954 and FU24A-954 airplanes. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as cracking of the control column at the wiring access hole, which could lead to loss of control. We are issuing this AD to require actions to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; General Electric Company Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2014-24697
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-10-23
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding airworthiness directives (ADs) 90-26-01, 91-20-02, and 2009-05-02 for all General Electric Company (GE) CF6-80C2 and CF6-80E1 series turbofan engines. This AD retains the requirements of those ADs and requires removal of additional fuel manifold part numbers (P/Ns), additional repetitive inspections, replacement as required of certain fuel manifold P/Ns and tube (block) clamps, and replacement of loop clamps. This AD was prompted by a report of an under-cowl fire caused by a manifold high-pressure fuel leak, and several additional reports of fuel leaks. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the fuel manifold, which could lead to uncontrolled engine fire, engine damage, and damage to the airplane.
