Federal Aviation Administration February 22, 2006 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce Corporation (Formerly Allison Engine Company) 501-D Series Turboprop Engines
Document Number: E6-2454
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-02-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to supersede an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for Rolls-Royce Corporation (formerly Allison Engine Company) (RRC) 501-D series turboprop engines. That AD currently requires removal from service of certain turbine rotor components at reduced life limits. This proposed AD would require the same actions but adds two new life limits. This proposed AD results from RRC reevaluating and revising component life limits for 501-D22 series turboprop engines. We are proposing this AD to prevent uncontained turbine rotor failure resulting in an in-flight engine shutdown and possible damage to the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A319-100 and A320-200 Series Airplanes; and A320-111 Airplanes
Document Number: E6-2453
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-02-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model A319-100 and A320-200 series airplanes; and A320-111 airplanes. This proposed AD would require modifying the wiring to the fuel pump control of the center fuel tank. This proposed AD results from reports that the low-pressure warning for the fuel pumps of the center fuel tank has come on in flight. We are proposing this AD to ensure that the fuel pumps do not run while dry, which could result in a potential ignition source inside the center fuel tank which, in combination with flammable fuel vapors, could result in a fuel tank explosion and consequent loss of the airplane.
Establishment of Class E5 Airspace; David City, NE
Document Number: 06-1569
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-02-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This rule establishes a Class E surface area airspace area extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at David City, NE. The effect of this rule is to provide appropriate controlled Class E airspace for aircraft departing from and executing instrument approach procedures to, David City Municipal Airport, NE and to segregate aircraft using instrument approach procedures in instrument conditions from aircraft operating in visual conditions.
