Notice of Intent of Waiver With Respect to Land; Bolton Field Airport, Columbus, OH
Document Number: 2018-01301
Type: Notice
Date: 2018-01-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is considering a proposal to change 2.128 acres of airport land from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use and to authorize the lease of airport property located at Bolton Field Airport, Columbus, OH. The aforementioned land is not needed for aeronautical use. The property is located in the northeast corner of the airport adjacent to the existing Columbus State Community College Building. The property is currently designated as aeronautical use for future hangar development. The proposed non-aeronautical use of the property is for the expansion of the Columbus State Community College Campus for the construction of a Fire Science Training Facility.
Airworthiness Directives; Honeywell International Inc. Turboprop and Turboshaft Engines
Document Number: 2018-01228
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-01-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Honeywell International Inc. (Honeywell) TPE331 turboprop and TSE331 turboshaft engines. This AD was prompted by reports that combustion chamber case assemblies have cracked and ruptured. This AD requires inspection of the affected combustion chamber case assembly, replacement of those assemblies found cracked, and removal of affected assemblies on certain TPE331 and TSE331 engines. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; GE Aviation Czech s.r.o. Turboprop Engines
Document Number: 2018-01124
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-01-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for GE Aviation Czech s.r.o. M601D-11, M601E-11, M601E-11A, M601E-11AS, M601E- 11S, M601F, H80, H80-100, H80-200, H75-100, H75-200, H85-100, and H85- 200 turboprop engines. This proposed AD was prompted by a review by the manufacturer that identified the possibility of a power turbine (PT) rotor overspeed and the uncontained release of PT blades. This proposed AD would require installing a modified engine outlet system. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Zodiac Aero Evacuation Systems
Document Number: 2018-00951
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-01-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are revising an earlier proposal for Zodiac Aero Evacuation Systems (formerly known as Air Cruisers) fusible plugs installed on emergency evacuation equipment for various transport category airplanes. This action revises the notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) by extending the proposed compliance time, clarifying the applicability, and clarifying certain proposed requirements. We are proposing this airworthiness directive (AD) to address the unsafe condition on these products. Since these actions would impose an additional burden over those in the NPRM, we are reopening the comment period to allow the public the chance to comment on these changes.
