Proposed Revocation of Class E Airspace; Adak, Atka, Cold Bay, Nelson Lagoon, Saint George Island, Sand Point, Shemya, St. Paul Island, and Unalaska, AK
Document Number: E6-20183
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-11-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to revoke the Class E2 and E5 controlled airspace descriptions for Adak, Atka, Cold Bay, Nelson Lagoon, Saint George Island, Sand Point, Shemya, St. Paul Island, and Unalaska, AK. These locations lie within the boundaries of the Offshore Airspace Area Control 1234L. Since these airports lie within Control 1234L, the controlled airspace associated with these airports should be listed in the Control 1234L area description. A concurrent airspace action (docket 06-AAL-29) would incorporate this controlled airspace. There is one exception. The Class E2 surface area at Shemya, AK is no longer necessary and the docket 06-AAL-29 will not be carrying it forward. If both proposals are adopted there will be no change to controlled airspace, except for the revocation of the Shemya Class E surface area. The controlled airspace descriptions would be listed in paragraph 6007 of FAA Order 7400.9P, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, Control 1234L.

Airworthiness Directives; EADS SOCATA Model TBM 700 Airplanes
Document Number: E6-20122
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-11-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This proposed AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as a report of a master cylinder yoke failure. The proposed AD would require actions that are intended to address the unsafe condition described in the MCAI.

Agency Information Collection Activity Seeking OMB Approval
Document Number: 06-9437
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-11-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA invites public comments about our intention to request the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) revision of a current information collection. The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on the following collection of information was published on June 28, 2006, vol. 71, no. 124, page 36868.

Airworthiness Directives; EADS SOCATA Model TBM 700 Airplanes
Document Number: 06-9429
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-11-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This proposed AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as the discovery of propeller control cables with a defective crimping. Two cable ends were found uncrimped at the factory after an engine run-up test, and one cable end was also found uncrimped on the first 100 hour aircraft maintenance check. The proposed AD would require actions that are intended to address the unsafe condition described in the MCAI.
Airworthiness Directives; Short Brothers & Harland Ltd. Models SC-7 Series 2 and SC-7 Series 3 Airplanes
Document Number: 06-9427
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-11-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to revise Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2003-17-05, which applies to all Short Brothers & Harland Ltd. (Shorts) Models SC-7 Series 2 and SC-7 Series 3 airplanes. AD 2003-17-05 currently establishes a technical service life for these airplanes and allows you to incorporate modifications, inspections, and replacements of certain life limited items to extend the life limits of these airplanes. Since we issued AD 2003-17-05, Shorts Service Bulletin SB 51-51 was revised to Revision 8, dated July 5, 2006, and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the European Community, issued an AD for the European Community to correct an unsafe condition for the specified product. AD 2003-17-05 contains conflicting information on the repetitive visual inspection requirement. Consequently, this proposed AD would retain the technical service life for these airplanes; would continue to allow modifications, inspections, and replacements of certain life limited items to extend the life limits of these airplanes; and would clarify the repetitive visual inspection requirement between one of the service bulletins and the maintenance program if an operator chooses to extend the life limit. The actions specified by this proposed AD are intended to clarify the inspection information to prevent failure of critical structure of the aircraft caused by fatigue.
