Federal Aviation Administration March 16, 2007 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; Saab Model SAAB 2000 Airplanes
Document Number: E7-4862
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-03-16
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; DORNIER LUFTFAHRT GmbH Models Dornier 228-100, Dornier 228-101, Dornier 228-200, Dornier 228-201, Dornier 228-202, and Dornier 228-212 Airplanes

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A330 Airplanes
Document Number: E7-4740
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-03-16
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD), which applies to certain Airbus Model A330-300 airplanes. That AD currently requires reinforcement of the structure of the center fuselage by installing external stiffeners (butt straps) at frame (FR) 53.3 on the fuselage skin between left-hand (LH) and right-hand (RH) stringer (STR) 13, and related investigative and corrective actions. This new AD requires additional reinforcement of the structure of the center fuselage by installing external stiffeners (butt straps) at frame FR53.3 on the fuselage skin between LH and RH STR13, and related investigative and other specified actions. This AD also adds airplanes to the applicability. This AD results from cracking found at the circumferential joint of FR53.3. We are issuing this AD to prevent fatigue cracking of the fuselage, which could result in reduced structural integrity of the fuselage.
Airworthiness Directives; EADS SOCATA Model TBM 700 Airplanes
Document Number: E7-4736
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-03-16
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 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. We are issuing this AD to require actions to correct the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A300 B4-600, B4-600R, and F4-600R Series Airplanes, and Model C4-605R Variant F Airplanes (Collectively Called A300-600 Series Airplanes); and Model A310 Airplanes; Equipped With General Electric CF6-80A3 or CF6-80C2 Engines
Document Number: E7-4734
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-03-16
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus airplane models, as specified above. This AD requires installing electro-pneumatic locking bar devices (TRAS lock systems) in the engine nacelles, installing a dedicated and shielded electrical circuit that is segregated from the existing thrust reverser control system, and performing related investigative/corrective actions if necessary. This AD results from the manufacturer's reassessment of the thrust reverser systems in the Airbus airplane models specified above, which showed that the thrust reverser could inadvertently deploy in flight under certain conditions. We are issuing this AD to prevent inadvertent deployment of thrust reversers in flight, which could result in reduced controllability of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; B-N Group Ltd. BN-2, BN-2A, BN-2B, BN-2T, and BN-2T-4R Series (All Individual Models Included in Type Certificate Data Sheet (TCDS) A17EU, Revision 16, Dated December 9, 2002), and BN-2A-Mklll Trislander Series (All Individual Models Included in Type Certificate Data Sheet (TCDS) A29EU, Revision 4, Dated December 9, 2002) Airplanes

Proposed Revision of Class E Airspace; Kodiak, AK
Document Number: 07-1208
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-03-16
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to revise Class E airspace at Kodiak, AK. Four Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) are being amended for the Kodiak Airport. A Standard Instrument Departure (SID) and a Departure Procedure (DP) are also being amended. Adoption of this proposal would result in revision of existing Class E airspace upward from the surface and from 700 feet (ft.) and 1,200 ft. above the surface at Kodiak Airport, Kodiak, AK.
Proposed Revision of Class E Airspace; Port Heiden, AK
Document Number: 07-1207
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-03-16
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to revise Class E airspace at Port Heiden, AK. Two new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) are being developed, and two procedures are being amended for the Port Heiden Airport. A Departure Procedure (DP) is also being amended. Adoption of this proposal would result in revision of existing Class E airspace upward from 700 feet (ft.) and 1,200 ft. above the surface at Port Heiden Airport, Port Heiden, AK.
