Fourteenth RTCA SC-230 Airborne Weather Detection Systems Plenary
Document Number: 2018-06600
Type: Notice
Date: 2018-04-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is issuing this notice to advise the public of a meeting of Fourteenth RTCA SC-230 Airborne Weather Detection Systems Plenary.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-06590
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-04-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model A318, A319, and A320 series airplanes, and Model A321-111, -112, -131, -211, -212, -213, -231, -232, -251N, -253N, and - 271N airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a revision of an airworthiness limitations document that specifies more restrictive maintenance requirements and airworthiness limitations. This proposed AD would require revising the maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate the specified maintenance requirements and airworthiness limitations. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Research, Engineering and Development Advisory Committee Meeting
Document Number: 2018-06586
Type: Notice

Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is issuing this notice to advise the public of the Research, Engineering & Development Advisory Committee meeting.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Helicopters Deutschland GmbH (Previously Eurocopter Deutschland GmbH) Helicopters
Document Number: 2018-06448
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-04-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to revise Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2013-21-05 for Eurocopter Deutschland GmbH (now Airbus Helicopters Deutschland GmbH) (Airbus Helicopters) Model EC135 P1, P2, P2+, T1, T2, and T2+ helicopters. AD 2013-21-05 requires an initial and repetitive inspections of certain bearings and modifying the floor and a rod. Since we issued AD 2013-21-05, we have determined that modifying the floor and rod removes the unsafe condition. This proposed AD would retain the requirements of AD 2013-21-05 but remove the repetitive inspections. The actions of this proposed AD are intended to prevent an unsafe condition on these products.
