Federal Aviation Administration July 17, 2006 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Proposed Revision of Class E Airspace; Village of Iliamna, AK
Document Number: E6-11188
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-07-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to revise Class E airspace at Iliamna, AK. One Standard Instrument Approach Procedure (SIAP) is being amended for the Iliamna Airport. Adoption of this proposal would result in revision of existing Class E airspace upward from 700 feet (ft.) and 1,200 ft. above the surface at Iliamna Airport, Village of Iliamna, AK.
Modification of Legal Description of Class D and E Airspace; Fairbanks, Fort Wainwright Army Airfield, AK
Document Number: E6-11168
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-07-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The U.S. Army will soon be changing the name of Fort (Ft.) Wainwright Army Airfield (AAF) to Ladd AAF. This action amends the airport name accordingly for each of the Class D and Class E airspace descriptions in FAA Order 7400.9N. This action also amends an altitude omission which currently does not exist in the FAA Order 7400.9N. This action also redefines the airspace description to account for recent updates to the airfield coordinates.
Proposed Revision of Class E Airspace; Saint (St.) Mary's, AK
Document Number: E6-11158

Date: 2006-07-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to revise Class E airspace at St. Mary's, AK. Three Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) are being amended and one SIAP is being developed for the St. Mary's Airport. Adoption of this proposal would result in revision of existing Class E airspace upward from the surface and 700 feet (ft.) above the surface at St. Mary's Airport, St. Mary's, AK.
Proposed Revision of Class E Airspace; Mountain Village, AK
Document Number: E6-11157
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-07-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to revise Class E airspace at Mountain Village, AK. Two new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) are being developed along with a Departure Procedure (DP) for the Mountain Village Airport. Adoption of this proposal would result in revision of existing Class E airspace upward from 700 feet (ft.) above the surface at Mountain Village Airport, Mountain Village, AK.
Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Kokhanok, AK
Document Number: E6-11155
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-07-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to establish Class E airspace at Kokhanok, AK. Two new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) and a new Departure Procedure (DP) are being published for the Kokhanok Airport. Adoption of this proposal would result in creation of new Class E airspace upward from 700 feet (ft.) and 1,200 ft. above the surface at Kokhanok Airport, Village of Kokhanok, AK.
Special Conditions; Cessna Aircraft Company Model 510 Airplane; Turbofan Engines and Engine Location
Document Number: E6-11153
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-07-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
On June 23, 2006, we published a document on proposed special conditions for Cessna Aircraft Company on the Model 510 airplane for turbofan engines and engine location. There was an error in the background of the document in reference to the future type certificate number. This notice removes that sentence from the background; no change to the proposed special conditions portion is necessary.
Third Meeting: Special Committee 209, Air Traffic Control Radar Beacon Systems (ATCRBS)/Mode S Transponder
Document Number: 06-6243
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-07-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is issuing this notice to advise the public of a meeting of RTCA Special Committee 209, Air Traffic Control Radar Beacon Systems (ATCRBS)/Mode S Transponder.
Airworthiness Directives; Twin Commander Aircraft Corporation Models 690, 690A, and 690B Airplanes
Document Number: 06-6225
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-07-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Twin Commander Aircraft Corporation (Twin Commander) Models 690, 690A, and 690B airplanes. This AD requires you to inspect, visually and using fluorescent dye penetrant, the support structures for the inboard and center aileron hinge fittings on both wings for cracks and replace any cracked support structure. This AD requires you to reinforce the support structures for the inboard and center aileron hinge fittings on both wings. This AD results from reports that cracks were found in the support structures for the inboard and center aileron hinge fittings on both wings. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct cracks in the support structures for the inboard and center aileron hinge fittings on both wings, which could result in aileron failure. This failure could lead to reduced controllability or loss of control of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A330-200 and -300, and A340-200 and -300 Series Airplanes
Document Number: 06-6180
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-07-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model A330-200 and -300, and A340-200 and -300 series airplanes. This AD requires modifying certain rotary actuator assemblies for the leading edge slat. This AD results from a leak found at the seal of the torque limiter output shaft of the Type A rotary actuator of leading edge slat No. 1. We are issuing this AD to prevent a decrease in the torque limiter function, which could result in degradation and damage to the attachment bolts of the leading edge slat, loss of the slat, and consequent reduced control of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Mitsubishi Heavy Industries MU-2B Series Airplanes
Document Number: 06-6179
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-07-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA adopts a new airworthiness directive (AD) for some Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) MU-2B series airplanes. This AD requires you to verify that the current flight idle blade angles are set at 12 degrees. If not already set at that angle, set the flight idle blade angles to 12 degrees. This AD results from a recent safety evaluation that used a data-driven approach to analyze the design, operation, and maintenance of the MU-2B series airplanes in order to determine their safety and define what steps, if any, are necessary for their safe operation. Part of that evaluation was the identification of unsafe conditions that exist or could develop on the affected type design airplanes. We are issuing this AD to prevent incorrect flight idle blade angle settings. This unsafe condition, if not corrected, could lead to an asymmetric thrust situation in certain flight conditions, which could result in airplane controllability problems.
Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 737-100, -200, and -200C Series Airplanes
Document Number: 06-6152
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-07-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD), which applies to certain Boeing Model 737 series airplanes. That AD currently requires inspection of the elevator tab inboard hinge support structure to detect fatigue cracking and corrective action if necessary. That AD also provides an optional terminating action. This new AD adds airplanes to the applicability and requires new repetitive inspections. For airplanes having elevators with laminated rear spars, this new AD requires repetitive inspections for interlaminar corrosion, delamination, or disbonding in the rear spar, repetitive inspections for cracking in the spar web, and repair including related investigative/corrective actions if necessary. For airplanes having elevators with solid rear spars, this new AD requires repetitive inspections for cracking in the spar web and repair including related investigative/corrective actions if necessary. This AD results from reports of cracks in the elevator rear spar web at the tab hinge bracket locations. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct cracking, corrosion, interlaminar corrosion, delamination, and disbonding in the elevator rear spar, which may reduce elevator stiffness and lead to in-flight vibration. In-flight vibration may lead to elevator and horizontal stabilizer damage and reduced controllability of the airplane.
