Federal Aviation Administration March 8, 2007 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; Pratt & Whitney JT9D Series Turbofan Engines
Document Number: E7-4139
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-03-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for Pratt & Whitney (PW) JT9D series turbofan engines. That AD currently requires revisions to the Airworthiness Limitations Section (ALS) of the manufacturer's Instructions for Continued Airworthiness (ICA) to include required enhanced inspection of selected critical life-limited parts at each piece-part opportunity. This AD modifies the JT9D series engines ALS sections of the manufacturer's manuals and an air carrier's approved continuous airworthiness maintenance program to incorporate additional inspection requirements. This AD results from the need to require enhanced inspection of selected critical life- limited parts of JT9D series turbofan engines. We are issuing this AD to prevent critical life-limited rotating engine part failure, which could result in an uncontained engine failure and damage to the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; REIMS AVIATION S.A. Model F406 Airplanes
Document Number: E7-4131
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-03-08
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) originated 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:
Airworthiness Directives; Pacific Aerospace Corporation Ltd Model 750XL Airplanes
Document Number: E7-4130
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-03-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This document makes a correction to Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2007-04-01, which was published in the Federal Register on February 14, 2007 (72 FR 6931), and applies to certain Pacific Aerospace Corporation Ltd Model 750XL airplanes. AD 2007-04-01 requires that you inspect the rivets in the fuselage roof at STN 180.85, BL 19.67, WL 86.2, and replace undersize rivets. Current language in Sec. 39.13 [Amended] of AD 2007-04-01 references ``* * *'' instead of ``2007-04-01.'' This document corrects that paragraph by changing the reference from ``* * *'' to ``2007-04-01.''
Airworthiness Directives; Empresa Brasileira de Aeronautica S.A. (EMBRAER) Model EMB-135BJ Airplanes
Document Number: E7-4128
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-03-08
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) originated 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:
Airworthiness Directives; EADS SOCATA Model TBM 700 Airplanes
Document Number: E7-3990
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-03-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This 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 finding of an improper geometry of some pulley brackets, which can offset the cable in the sheave. We are issuing this AD to require actions to correct the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Glasflugel Models H 301 “Libelle,” H 301B “Libelle,” Standard “Libelle,” and Standard Libelle-201B Sailplanes
Document Number: E7-3989
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-03-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA adopts a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Glasflugel Models H 301 ``Libelle,'' H 301B ``Libelle,'' Standard ``Libelle,'' and Standard Libelle-201B sailplanes. This AD requires you to replace the rudder actuator arm (manufactured according to drawing No. 301-45-10) with an improved design rudder actuator arm (manufactured following drawing No. 301-45-13). This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by the airworthiness authority for Germany. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct damage to the rudder actuator arm, which could result in failure of the rudder actuator arm. This failure could result in reduced or loss of rudder control.

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A319, A320, and A321 Airplanes
Document Number: E7-3840
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-03-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model A319, A320, and A321 airplanes. This AD requires installing spacer assemblies at the attachment points of the YZ-latches of the cargo loading system in the forward and aft cargo compartments, as applicable. This AD results from tests that have shown that the attachment points of the YZ-latches of the cargo loading system fail under maximum loads. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the attachment points of the YZ-latches, which could result in unrestrained cargo causing damage to the fire protection system, hydraulic system, electrical wiring, or other equipment located in the forward and aft cargo compartments. This damage could adversely affect the continued safe flight of the airplane.
Standard Instrument Approach Procedures, Weather Takeoff Minimums; Miscellaneous Amendments
Document Number: E7-3680
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-03-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This amendment establishes, amends, suspends, or revokes Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) and/or Weather Takeoff Minimums for operations at certain airports. These regulatory actions are needed because of the adoption of new or revised criteria, or because of changes occurring in the National Airspace System, such as the commissioning of new navigational facilities, addition of new obstacles, or changes in air traffic requirements. These changes are designed to provide safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace and to promote safe flight operations under instrument flight rules at the affected airports.
Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 737-600, -700, -700C, and -800 Series Airplanes
Document Number: E7-3006
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-03-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is revising an existing airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to certain Boeing Model 737-600, -700, -700C, and -800 series airplanes. That AD currently requires inspecting/measuring the length of the attachment fasteners between the nacelle support fittings and the lower wing skin panels, and related investigative/corrective actions if necessary. That AD resulted from a report from the manufacturer that in production, during the installation of certain attachment fasteners for the nacelle support fittings, only one washer was installed instead of two. This new AD corrects errors found in the existing AD. We are issuing this AD to prevent inadequate fastener clamp-up, which could result in cracking of the fastener holes, cracking along the lower wing skin panels, fuel leaking from the wing fuel tanks onto the engines, and possible fire.
