Airworthiness Directives; Eurocopter Canada Limited Model BO 105 LS A-3 Helicopters
This amendment adopts a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Eurocopter Canada Limited (Eurocopter) Model BO 105 LS A-3 helicopters that requires replacing certain fixed bolts and nuts, re-identifying certain main rotor nuts, and revising the Airworthiness Limitations Time Change Items (TCI) list to reflect the new life limits and new part numbers. This amendment is prompted by a re-evaluation of certain fatigue-critical parts, which resulted in establishing new life limits for certain like-numbered parts and re-identifying a certain existing part with a different part number, or in some cases, replacing them with new parts. The actions specified by this AD are intended to prevent fatigue failure of the fixed bolts and nuts, and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.
IFR Altitudes; Miscellaneous Amendments
This amendment adopts miscellaneous amendments to the required IFR (instrument flight rules) altitudes and changeover points for certain Federal airways, jet routes, or direct routes for which a minimum or maximum en route authorized IFR altitude is prescribed. This regulatory action is needed because of changes occurring in the National Airspace System. These changes are designed to provide for the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace under instrument conditions in the affected areas.
