Airworthiness Directives; BAE Systems (Operations) Limited Model BAe 146 Airplanes
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all BAE Systems (Operations) Limited Model BAe 146 airplanes. This AD requires inspecting the three-phase circuit breakers and three-phase circuit breaker panels for discrepancies; and fixing any discrepancy and replacing unserviceable units with new units, if necessary. This AD results from reports of three-phase circuit breakers overheating on in- service airplanes. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of a three-phase circuit breaker. Such failure could prevent an electrical load from being isolated from its electrical supply, which could result in smoke or fire in the flight deck.
Airworthiness Directives; BAE Systems (Operations) Limited Model BAe 146 and Avro 146-RJ Airplanes
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all BAE Systems (Operations) Limited Model BAe 146 and Avro 146-RJ airplanes equipped with certain hydraulic accumulators. This AD requires inspecting the hydraulic accumulators to identify certain serial numbers, and replacing any affected accumulator with a new or serviceable accumulator. Operators may delay doing the replacement by doing repetitive inspections of the affected hydraulic accumulators for signs of failure (leaking or cracking), and replacing any failed accumulator with a new or serviceable unit. This AD results from a report that one hydraulic accumulator failed in service, which caused the loss of the yellow hydraulic system when the airplane was configured for landing. We are issuing this AD to prevent damage to the pressure skin, failure of certain hydraulic systems, contamination of the cabin with hydraulic mist, increased workload for the flightcrew associated with the loss of one or more hydraulic circuits, and consequent reduced controllability of the airplane.
Request for Public Comment on Noise Analysis for Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, Broward County, FL
Petitions for Exemption; Summary of Petitions Received
In accordance with 14 CFR 11.47(c), the FAA has received a petition from the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, AFL-CIO (AFA- CWA). That petition requested an extension of the comment period for Alaska Airlines, Inc. petition for exemption. That exemption, if granted, would allow Alaska Airlines to eliminate the requirement for a procedure on their B737-400 combination passenger/cargo operations for a flight attendant to enter the pilot compartment in the event a flight crew member becomes incapacitated. The FAA finds that AFA-CWA has a substantive interest in the exemption request and has shown that good cause exists to extend the comment period if consistent with public interest.
