Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; Clearance of Renewed Approval of Information Collection: Mitsubishi MU-2B Series Airplane Special Training, Experience, and Operating Procedures
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 of information is necessary to document participation in, completion of, and compliance with the pilot training program for the MU-2B series airplane under the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).
Amendment of Class E Airspace; Sibley, IA
This action corrects a final rule published in the Federal Register of May 17, 2019, that modifies Class E airspace at Sibley Municipal Airport, Sibley, IA. The geographic coordinates of the airport will be amended to be in concert with the FAA's aeronautical database.
Airworthiness Directives; Piper Aircraft, Inc.
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Piper Aircraft, Inc. (Piper) Model PA-46-600TP (M600) airplanes. This AD requires inserting a ground operations limitation into the Limitations section of the airplane flight manual (AFM) and installing a placard limiting ground operations. This AD also includes optional actions to terminate the ground operating limitations. This AD was prompted by a report of understrength rivets installed during manufacture of the bulkhead assembly. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
The FAA is superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2007-11-11 and AD 2017-01-11, which applied to all Airbus SAS Model A318 and Model A319 series airplanes; Model A320-211, -212, -214, -231, -232, and -233 airplanes; and Model A321 series airplanes. AD 2007-11-11 required an inspection to determine the serial number of both main landing gear (MLG) sliding tubes, repetitive inspections for cracking of the affected MLG sliding tubes and corrective actions if necessary, and eventual replacement of both MLG shock absorbers. AD 2017-01-11 required identification of the part number and serial number of the MLG sliding tubes; inspection of affected chromium plates and sliding tube axles for damage; and replacement of the sliding tube if necessary. This AD retains certain requirements of AD 2007-11-11 and AD 2017-01-11. This AD also requires repetitive inspections of affected MLG sliding tubes for cracking, replacement of cracked MLG sliding tubes, and eventual replacement of each affected MLG sliding tube. This AD was prompted by cracks found in the MLG sliding tubes due to certain manufacturing defects that might not be identified using the current on-wing scheduled inspections. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Fokker Services B.V. Airplanes
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Fokker Services B.V. Model F28 Mark 0070 and 0100 airplanes. This AD was prompted by a determination that new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations are necessary. This AD requires revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
The FAA is adopting an airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 757 airplanes. This AD requires repetitive checks of the aileron trim actuator bearing for free rotation, repetitive detailed inspections of the aileron trim actuator attachment lug for damage and cracking, and applicable on-condition actions. This AD was prompted by a report of the failure of the aileron trim actuator attachment lug. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus SAS Model A318-112, -121, and -122; A319-111, -112, - 115, -131, -132, and -133; A320-214, -216, -232, -233, -251N, and - 271N; and A321-211, -212, -213, -231, -232, -251N, -253N, -271N, and - 272N airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of missing or loosened fasteners on connecting brackets of overhead stowage compartments (OHSC) and pivoting OHSC (POHSC). This proposed AD would require modification of the OHSC and POHSC attachments, as specified in a European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which will be incorporated by reference. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
