Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; Clearance of a Renewed Approval of Information Collection: Human Space Flight Requirements for Crew and Space Flight Participants
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FAA invites public comments about our intention to request the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to renew an information collection. The collection involves information demonstrating that a launch or reentry operation involving a human participant will meet the risk criteria and requirements to ensure public safety. The information to be collected is necessary for the FAA to assess crew qualification and training; for operators to inform space flight participants and crew members of the risks associated with launch and reentry activities; for the implementation of waiver of claims; and to ensure environmental control and life support systems and other systems adequately protect public health and safety.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 737-600, -700, -700C, -800, -900, and -900ER series airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of cracks in the skin and a certain chord at three fastener locations common to the drag link assembly at the chord. This AD requires repetitive inspections of the skin under the drag link assembly for any cracks, and applicable on-condition actions. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
