Federal Aviation Administration June 12, 2017 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-12058
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-06-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 787-8 and 787-9 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report that the Parking Brake and Alternate Pitch Trim Module (PBM) may unintentionally disengage, fail to set, fail to release, or become jammed. This proposed AD would require replacing the PBM and doing a PBM installation test. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Dassault Aviation Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-12057
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-06-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Dassault Aviation Model FALCON 7X airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a review showing that inadequate clearance may exist between certain electrical wiring and nearby structures. This proposed AD would require an inspection of certain electrical wiring bundles and feeders, modifications, and corrective actions if necessary. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-12056
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-06-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus Model A300 B4-603 and A300 B4-622 airplanes; Model A300 B4-600R series airplanes; Model A300 C4-605R Variant F airplanes; Model A300 F4-600R series airplanes; and Model A310-203, A310-221, A310-222, A310- 304, A310-322, A310-324, and A310-325 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by an evaluation by the design approval holder (DAH) that indicates that a section of the fuselage structure above the forward cargo door is subject to widespread fatigue damage (WFD). This proposed AD would require an inspection for cracks of the fastener and tooling holes at certain locations and a check of the diameter of the holes, and repair or modification of the affected fuselage structure if necessary. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-12055
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-06-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus Model A300 series airplanes; Model A300 B4-600, B4-600R, and F4- 600R series airplanes, and Model A300 C4-605R Variant F airplanes (collectively called Model A300-600 series airplanes); and Model A310 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a static analysis performed by Airbus that revealed that some areas of the wing structure cannot sustain the damage previously published in certain structural repair manuals. This proposed AD would require an inspection to determine that no repair or damage to certain wing areas is beyond the allowable limits; and repair if necessary. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Petition for Exemption; Summary of Petition Received
Document Number: 2017-12027
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-06-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This notice contains a summary of a petition seeking relief from specified requirements of Federal Aviation Regulations. The purpose of this notice is to improve the public's awareness of, and participation in, this aspect of the FAA's regulatory activities. Neither publication of this notice nor the inclusion or omission of information in the summary is intended to affect the legal status of the petition or its final disposition.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Helicopters
Document Number: 2017-11986
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-06-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding airworthiness directive (AD) 2016-20-04 for Airbus Helicopters Model SA341G and SA342J helicopters. AD 2016-20-04 prohibited autorotation training flights until the landing gear rear crosstube (crosstube) was inspected. This new AD adds additional part- numbered crosstubes to the applicability and revises the hardness criteria for the inspection. This AD is prompted by a determination that an additional part-numbered crosstube may have the same unsafe condition. The actions of this AD are intended to detect and prevent an unsafe condition on these helicopters.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-11278
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-06-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2016-11- 02, which applies to all Bombardier, Inc., Model CL-600-2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701, & 702) airplanes; Model CL-600-2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705) airplanes; Model CL-600-2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900) airplanes; and Model CL-600-2E25 (Regional Jet Series 1000) airplanes. AD 2016-11-02 requires repetitive inspections of the upper and lower engine pylons for protruding, loose, or missing fasteners; and repair if necessary. Since we issued AD 2016-11-02, we have determined that a terminating action is necessary to address the unsafe condition. This proposed AD would continue to require the repetitive inspections of the upper and lower engine pylons for protruding, loose, or missing fasteners; and repair if necessary. This proposed AD would also require replacement of affected fasteners, which terminates the inspections. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
