Federal Aviation Administration December 19, 2006 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; Turbomeca S.A. Makila 1A and 1A1 Turboshaft Engines
Document Number: E6-21586
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-12-19
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:
Revision of Class E Airspace; St. Michael, AK
Document Number: E6-21537
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-12-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action revises Class E airspace at St. Michael, AK to provide adequate controlled airspace to contain aircraft executing one amended Standard Instrument Approach Procedure (SIAP). This rule results in the revision of Class E airspace upward from 700 feet (ft.) and 1,200 ft. above the surface at St. Michael, AK.
Revision of Class E Airspace; Kodiak, AK
Document Number: E6-21535
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-12-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action revises Class E airspace at Kodiak, AK to provide adequate controlled airspace to contain aircraft executing Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs). The FAA Instrument Flight Procedures Production and Maintenance Branch had noticed that a section of airspace north of Kodiak, AK, needed to be converted to controlled airspace. This rule addresses this issue and results in the revision of Class E airspace upward from 3,500 feet (ft.) above the surface at Kodiak, AK.
Revision of Class E Airspace; Homer, AK
Document Number: E6-21534
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-12-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action revises Class E airspace at Homer, AK to provide adequate controlled airspace to contain aircraft executing four new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs). This rule results in the revision of Class E airspace upward from the surface, from 700 feet (ft.), and from 1,200 ft. above the surface at Homer, AK.
Revision of Class E Airspace; Perryville, AK
Document Number: E6-21533
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-12-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action revises Class E airspace at Perryville, AK to provide adequate controlled airspace to contain aircraft executing a new Standard Instrument Approach Procedure (SIAP) and a new Stardard Instrument Departure procedure (SID). This rule results in the revision of Class E airspace upward from 700 feet (ft.) and 1,200 ft. above the surface at Perryville, AK.
Revision of Class E Airspace; Hooper Bay, AK
Document Number: E6-21532
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-12-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action revises Class E airspace at Hooper Bay, AK to provide adequate controlled airspace to contain aircraft executing two new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs). This rule results in the revision of Class E airspace upward from 700 feet (ft.) and 1,200 ft. above the surface at Hooper Bay, AK.
Revision of Class E Airspace; Tok Junction, AK
Document Number: E6-21516
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-12-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action revises Class E airspace at Tok Junction, AK to provide adequate controlled airspace to contain aircraft executing a new Standard Instrument Approach Procedure (SIAP). This rule results in the revision of Class E airspace upward from 700 feet (ft.) and 1,200 ft. above the surface at Tok Junction, AK.
Airworthiness Directives; CFM International, S.A. CFM56 Series Turbofan Engines
Document Number: E6-21485
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-12-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain CFM International CFM56 Series turbofan engines. This AD requires replacing certain fuel filters manufactured under parts manufacturer approvals (PMA). This AD results from 12 reports of failed fuel filters. We are issuing this AD to prevent the loss of engine thrust that could result in loss of control during takeoff or landing.
Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce Corporation 501-D Series Turboprop Engines
Document Number: E6-21352
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-12-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for Rolls-Royce Corporation (RRC) 501-D series turboprop engines. That AD requires removal from service of certain turbine rotor components at reduced life limits. This AD requires the same actions but adds two new life limits. This AD results from RRC reevaluating and revising component life limits for 501-D22 series turboprop engines. We are issuing this AD to prevent uncontained turbine rotor failure resulting in an in-flight engine shutdown and possible damage to the airplane.
