Federal Aviation Administration February 14, 2018 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-03026
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-02-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2017-01- 02, which applies to certain The Boeing Company Model 787-8 and 787-9 airplanes. AD 2017-01-02 requires an inspection for discrepant inboard and outboard trailing edge flap rotary actuators. Since we issued AD 2017-01-02, we have determined that it is necessary to revise the applicability to include additional airplanes, and to reduce the number of affected actuators. This proposed AD would continue to require an inspection of the inboard and outboard trailing edge flap rotary actuator for any discrepant rotary actuator, and corrective actions if necessary. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; GE Aviation Czech s.r.o. Turboprop Engines
Document Number: 2018-02994
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-02-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for GE Aviation Czech s.r.o. M601D-11, M601E-11, M601E-11A, M601E-11AS, M601E- 11S, and M601F turboprop engines. This AD requires removal of certain power turbine (PT) disks installed on the affected engines. This AD was prompted by a design review by the manufacturer that determined PT rotors with certain disks have less overspeed margin than originally stated during product certification. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Notice of Opportunity for Public Comment on a Disposal of 17.6 Acres of Airport Land at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, Manchester, NH
Document Number: 2018-02942
Type: Notice
Date: 2018-02-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
Notice is being given that the FAA is considering a request from the Manchester-Boston Regional Authority to dispose of 17.6 acres of airport land. The parcel is located three miles south of the airport and surrounded by residential development. Considering its remote location and no aviation development potential, disposal of the property is approved. The airport will obtain fair market value for the disposal and the proceeds deposited into the airport's account for operation and maintenance of the facility.
