Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended (NEPA), Council on Environmental Quality NEPA implementing regulations, and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Order 1050.1F, Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures, the FAA is announcing the availability of the Final Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact/Record of Decision for the Shuttle Landing Facility (SLF) Launch Site Operator License (Final EA and FONSI/ROD).
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-25002
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-11-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is correcting an airworthiness directive (AD) that published in the Federal Register. That AD applies to certain Bombardier, Inc., Model DHC-8-300 series airplanes. As published, a service information citation is incorrect. This document corrects the error. In all other respects, the original document remains the same.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-25001
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-11-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 737-100, -200, -200C, -300, -400, and -500 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports indicating that the pitot heat switch is not always set to ON, which could result in misleading air data. This proposed AD would require replacement of pitot anti-icing system components, installation of a junction box and wiring provisions, repetitive testing of the anti- icing system, and applicable on-condition actions. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Helicopters Deutschland GmbH Helicopters
Document Number: 2018-24995
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-11-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Airbus Helicopters Deutschland GmbH (Airbus Helicopters) Model MBB-BK 117 C-2 helicopters. This proposed AD would require establishing or reducing the life limit of various parts. This proposed AD is prompted by recalculations. The actions of this proposed AD are intended to address an unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Pratt & Whitney Division Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2018-24965
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-11-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2016-22- 05, which applies to certain Pratt & Whitney Division (PW) PW4164, PW4164-1D, PW4168, PW4168-1D, PW4168A, PW4168A-1D, and PW4170 turbofan engines. AD 2016-22-05 requires initial and repetitive inspections of the affected fuel nozzles and their replacement with parts eligible for installation. Since we issued AD 2016-22-05, PW introduced newly forged fuel nozzles, fuel manifold brackets, and clamps. This proposed AD would require initial and repetitive inspections of the affected fuel nozzles and fuel nozzle supply manifold assemblies, replacement of the affected fuel nozzles with parts eligible for installation, and the installation of new brackets and clamps on the fuel supply manifold assemblies with parts eligible for installation. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Pratt & Whitney Division (PW) Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2018-24944
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-11-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Pratt & Whitney Division (PW) PW4158 turbofan engines. This proposed AD was prompted by several reports of high cycle fatigue (HCF) cracks found in the fuel nozzle supply manifold. This proposed AD would require replacement of the affected fuel nozzles and fuel nozzle manifold supply assemblies with parts eligible for installation. This proposed AD would also require installation of new brackets and clamps on the fuel supply manifold assemblies. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
