Document Number: 2020-12087
Type: Notice
Date: 2020-06-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
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 Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on the following collection of information was published on March 20, 2020, no comments were received. The collection involves the applicant entering information onto and submitting the FAA Form 8310-3, Application for Repair Station Certificate and/or Rating to the appropriate FAA field office. Persons requesting to obtain an initial Air Agency Certificate to operate as an FAA certificated repair station or request changes to an existing repair station (air agency) certificate do so by submitting the request through the submission of the FAA Form 8310-3. This form is available to the applicant/respondent via www.faa.gov, email, in person, or by mail. The FAA Form 8310-3, Application for Repair Station Certificate and/or Ratings captures information such as, but not limited to; official name of repair station, location where business is conducted, official mailing address, any doing business as name, changes in ratings, or if initial certification, ratings sought, changes in location or housing and facilities, change in name or ownership, or any other purpose for which the applicant requests, including a request for approval to contract maintenance functions to outside entities. The FAA has identified an inaccuracy in how burden calculations are determined associated with initial repair station certifications and subsequent changes to an existing repair station certificate. The FAA has identified that the information collected through the FAA Form 8310-3 does not capture the entire repair station certification activities or changes to an existing certificate. OMB Control Number 2120-0682 is not only authorizing the Agency to receive information collected on the FAA Form 8310-3, but should also encapsulate the entire calculation burden associated with repair station certification and subsequent changes to an existing certificate. Once burden calculations associated with repair station certification activities are properly assessed, the FAA will publish a new notice to the Federal Register capturing the entire burden calculation for repair station certification and subsequent changes to an existing certificate.

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Helicopters
Document Number: 2020-12028
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-06-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Helicopters Model AS332C1 and AS332L1 helicopters. This proposed AD was prompted by a report that the affected helicopters use the same ``flight/ground'' logic signal instead of independent redundant signals. This proposed AD would require amending the emergency procedures of the rotorcraft flight manual (RFM) for your helicopter, a wiring modification of the ``flight/ground'' logic signal source of the attitude heading and reference system (AHRS) 1, and then removal of the amendment to the RFM for your helicopter. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-12025
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-06-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 99- 01-19 and AD 2004-25-02, which apply to certain Airbus SAS Model A320 series airplanes. AD 99-01-19 and AD 2004-25-02 require repetitive inspections to detect fatigue cracking in certain areas of the fuselage, and corrective action if necessary. AD 2004-25-02 also provides an optional terminating action for the repetitive inspections. Since the FAA issued AD 2004-25-02, it has been reported that, during full scale tests to support the Model A320 structure extended service goal (ESG) exercise, several cracks were found on both sides of the overwing emergency exit door cut-outs at fuselage section 15. This proposed AD would continue to require, for certain airplanes, repetitive inspections of the fastener holes for any cracking, and repair if necessary, and would provide an optional terminating action for the fastener hole inspections. This proposed AD would also expand the applicable airplanes and require, for all airplanes, inspections of the emergency exit door structure for any cracking and repair if necessary; as specified in a European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which will be incorporated by reference. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

Airworthiness Directives; Honeywell International Inc. (Honeywell) Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System (EGPWS)
Document Number: 2020-11848
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-06-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is withdrawing a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) that proposed to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) that would have applied to various normal and transport category rotorcraft with certain Honeywell enhanced ground proximity warning systems (EGPWS) installed. The NPRM was prompted by a software defect that prevents the EGPWS from providing terrain warnings. The NPRM would have required updating the software version of the EGPWS. Since issuance of the NPRM, the FAA has determined that the unsafe condition no longer exists and has confirmed that the majority of operators have updated their software as specified in the NPRM. Accordingly, the NPRM is withdrawn.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-11828
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-06-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 737 series airplanes, excluding Model 737-100, -200, -200C, -300, -400, and -500 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of cracked or completely severed lugs in the upper aft corner stop fitting assembly of the forward entry door. This proposed AD would require an inspection, a measurement, or a records check of that assembly to determine the part number, and replacement if a certain part is found. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Leonardo S.p.A. Helicopters
Document Number: 2020-11822
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-06-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Leonardo S.p.A. Model AW169 and AW189 helicopters. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of a broken extrusion rubber window seal. This proposed AD would require installation of a reinforcement around the rubber filler wedge where the extrusion rubber window seal meets the door's emergency exit handle. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Helicopters
Document Number: 2020-11821
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-06-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2018-08-01 for Airbus Helicopters Model EC225LP helicopters. AD 2018- 08-01 requires inspecting the control rod attachment yokes (yoke) of certain main rotor rotating swashplates (swashplate). Since the FAA issued AD 2018-08-01, Airbus Helicopters has identified additional swashplate serial numbers affected by the unsafe condition and has established a life limit for the swashplates. This proposed AD would retain the inspection requirements of AD 2018-08-01, expand the applicability, establish a life limit, and add a one-time inspection of stripped yokes. The actions of this proposed AD are intended to address an unsafe condition on these products.
Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Guntersville, AL
Document Number: 2020-11710
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-06-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Guntersville Municipal Airport-Joe Starnes Field (formerly Guntersville Municipal Airport), Guntersville, AL, to accommodate new Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures serving this airport. This action would also update the geographic coordinates of the airport. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations in the area.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-11654
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-06-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model BD-100-1A10 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report that corrosion was found on the shock strut cylinders during unscheduled maintenance of the nose landing gear (NLG). This proposed AD would require a modification of the NLG shock strut cylinder. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Piper Aircraft, Inc. Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-11343
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-06-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is revising an earlier proposal for certain Piper Aircraft, Inc. (Piper) Models PA-28-140, PA-28-150, PA-28-151, PA-28- 160, PA-28-161, PA-28-180, PA-28-181, PA-28-235, PA-28R-180, PA-28R- 200, PA-28R-201, PA-28R-201T, PA-28RT-201, PA-28RT-201T, PA-32-260, and PA-32-300 airplanes. The notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) was prompted by a report of a wing separation caused by fatigue cracking in a visually inaccessible area of the lower main wing spar cap. This action revises the NPRM by adding and removing certain models of airplanes in the Applicability, proposing to require the use of service information that was issued since the NPRM, and clarifying some of the proposed actions. The FAA is proposing this airworthiness directive (AD) to address the unsafe condition on these products. Since these actions would impose an additional burden over those proposed in the NPRM, the FAA is reopening the comment period to allow the public the chance to comment on these changes.
