Airworthiness Directives; Stemme GmbH & Co. KG Models S10, S10-V, and S10-VT Sailplanes
Document Number: E6-8609
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-06-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Stemme GmbH & Co. KG Models S10, S10-V, and S10-VT sailplanes. This proposed AD would require you to inspect the connection between the aileron push-rod and the connecting shaft to determine if a safety washer is installed. If there is no safety washer installed, this proposed AD would require you to modify the aileron control assembly. This proposed AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by the airworthiness authority for Germany. We are proposing this AD to prevent a loose bearing in the aileron control lever, which could result in separation of the aileron control system. Separation of the aileron control system could lead to loss of aileron control.
Airworthiness Directives; International Aero Engines (IAE) V2500 Series Turbofan Engines
Document Number: E6-8562
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-06-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for IAE V2500-A1, V2522-A5, V2524-A5, V2527-A5, V2527E-A5, V2527M-A5, V2530-A5, V2533-A5, V2525-D5, and V2528-D5 turbofan engines. This proposed AD would require repetitive monitoring of N2 vibration on all IAE V2500 series engines to identify engines that might have a cracked high pressure turbine (HPT) stage 2 air seal. This proposed AD results from a report that HPT stage 2 air seals have developed cracks. We are proposing this AD to prevent uncontained failure of the HPT stage 2 air seal.
Modification of VOR Federal Airways; and Establishment of Area Navigation Route; NC
Document Number: 06-5035

Antidrug and Alcohol Misuse Prevention Programs for Personnel Engaged in Specified Aviation Activities
Document Number: 06-5028
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-06-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
On January 10, 2006, the FAA published a regulation titled ``Antidrug and Alcohol Misuse Prevention Programs for Personnel Engaged in Specified Aviation Activities; Final Rule.'' This final rule contains information collection activities subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3507(d)). No agency may conduct or sponsor and no person is required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act, documentation describing the information collection activities was submitted to OMB for review and approval. OMB approved this control number, 2120-0689, on March 7, 2006 and it is being published in the Federal Register. This OMB control number will expire on March 31, 2007. The January 10, 2006, rule imposes additional reporting and recordkeeping requirements on regulated employers (part 121 and 135 certificate holders and operators as defined in Sec. 135.1(c)).

Document Number: 06-5027
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-06-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to revise Class E airspace at Adak, AK. A Special Standard Instrument Approach Procedure (SIAP) is being amended and a special departure procedure is being developed for the Adak Airport.

Airworthiness Directives; Eurocopter France Model AS350B, BA, B1, B2, B3, C, D, and D1 Helicopters
Document Number: 06-5003
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-06-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This amendment adopts a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Eurocopter France (Eurocopter) Model AS350B, BA, B1, B2, B3, C, D, and D1 helicopters that have a Geneva Aviation, Inc. (Geneva) P132 console (console) installed. This AD requires installing right and left side Geneva cyclic control sticks and modifying the cyclic grips and the co- pilot cyclic stand (receptacle). This amendment is prompted by reports that pilots had restricted cyclic stick travel when using Eurocopter factory-installed cyclic sticks in a helicopter modified under a certain Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for the installation of a Geneva P132 console. The actions specified by this AD are intended to prevent restricting full lateral movement of the cyclic control during high lateral center of gravity (CG) load operations in high cross winds and during slope takeoffs or landings and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.
