Airworthiness Directives; Cessna Model 500, 501, 550, 551, S550, 560, 560XL, and 750 Airplanes
The FAA proposes to supersede an existing airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to certain Cessna Model 500, 550, S550, 560, 560XL, and 750 airplanes. The existing AD currently requires installing identification sleeves on the wires for the positive and negative terminal studs of the engine and/or auxiliary power unit (APU) fire extinguishing bottles, as applicable, and re-connecting the wires to the correct terminal studs. This proposed AD would retain the requirements of the existing AD; add airplanes to the applicability; and, for certain airplanes only, require a review of wiring changes made using the original issue of one service bulletin and corrective actions if necessary. This proposed AD results from a determination that additional airplanes are subject to the unsafe condition described in the existing AD. We are proposing this AD to ensure that the fire extinguishing bottles are activated in the event of an engine or APU fire, and that flammable fluids are not supplied during a fire, which could result in an unextinguished fire in the nacelle or APU.
Airworthiness Directives; General Electric Company (GE) CF6-80 Series Turbofan Engines
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for GE CF6-80 series turbofan engines having fuel shroud retaining snap rings, part number (P/N) J204P0084, installed. This proposed AD would require replacing those snap rings with a more robust design snap ring. This proposed AD results from two events of external engine fuel leakage and a subsequent under-cowl engine fire. We are proposing this AD to prevent an under-cowl engine fire and damage to the airplane during a high engine vibration event.

This notice announces a meeting to discuss various FAA rotorcraft safety initiatives and to gether any relevant information that will help to reduce general aviation rotorcraft accidents.
Extended Operations (ETOPS) of Multi-Engine Airplanes
The Federal Aviation Administration is correcting a final rule published in the Federal Register on January 16, 2007 (72 FR 1808). That final rule applied to air carrier (part 121), commuter, and on- demand (part 135) turbine powered multi-engine airplanes used in passenger-carrying, and some all-cargo, extended-range operations. This amendment corrects the rule language applicable to dual maintenance and formatting of a Part 1 definition and section of Appendix G. None of these changes is substantive, but will clarify the FAA's intent of the final rule for the public.
