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

Airworthiness Directives; Cessna Aircraft Company Models 150 and 152 Airplanes
Document Number: E7-7180
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-04-16
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Cessna Aircraft Company (Cessna) Models 150 and 152 airplanes. This proposed AD would require replacing the rudder stop, rudder stop bumper, and attachment hardware with a new rudder stop modification kit. This proposed AD also requires replacing the safety wire with jamnuts. This proposed AD results from two accidents where the rudder was found in the over-travel position with the stop plate hooked over the stop bolt heads. We are proposing this AD to prevent the rudder from traveling past the normal travel limit and becoming jammed in the over-travel position. This condition could result in loss of control.
Standard Instrument Approach Procedures, Weather Takeoff Minimums; Miscellaneous Amendments
Document Number: E7-7063
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-04-16
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.
Standard Instrument Approach Procedures; Miscellaneous Amendments

Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce plc RB211 Series Turbofan Engines
Document Number: E7-7032
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-04-16
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is revising an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for Rolls-Royce plc (RR) RB211-22B series, RB211-524B, -524C2, -524D4, -524G2, -524G3, and -524H series, and RB211-535C and -535E series turbofan engines with high pressure compressor (HPC) stage 3 disc assemblies, part numbers (P/Ns) LK46210, LK58278, LK67634, LK76036, UL11706, UL15358, UL22577, UL22578, and UL24738 installed. That AD currently requires removing from service certain disc assemblies before they reach their full published life if not modified with anticorrosion protection. This AD requires the same actions but relaxes the removal compliance time for certain disc assemblies that have a record of detailed inspection. This AD results from the FAA allowing certain affected disc assemblies that entered into service before 1990 that have a record of detailed inspections, to remain in service for a longer period than the previous AD allowed. We are issuing this AD to relax the compliance time for certain disc assemblies and track the disc life based on a detailed inspection rather than by its entry into service date, while continuing to prevent corrosion-induced uncontained disc assembly failure, resulting in damage to the airplane.
Notice of Submission Deadline for International Arrival Authorizations at Chicago O'Hare International Airport for the Winter 2007 Scheduling Season
Document Number: 07-1874
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-04-16
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA announces May 3, 2007, as the deadline for submitting requests for the allocation of international Arrival Authorizations at Chicago O'Hare International Airport (ORD). The FAA deadline coincides with the submission deadline established by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) for the Winter 2007 Schedule Coordination Conference. The conference covers the period of October 28, 2007 through March 29, 2008. The FAA limits scheduled arrivals at ORD from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., Central Time, Monday through Friday, and 12 p.m. to 9 p.m., on Sunday, based on runway capacity.
Special Conditions: Boeing Model 787-8 Airplane; Systems and Data Networks Security-Protection of Airplane Systems and Data Networks From Unauthorized External Access
Document Number: 07-1838
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-04-16
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This notice proposes special conditions for the Boeing Model 787-8 airplane. This airplane will have novel or unusual design features when compared to the state of technology envisioned in the airworthiness standards for transport category airplanes. The architecture of the Boeing Model 787-8 systems and networks allows access to external systems and networks, including the public Internet. On-board wired and wireless devices may also have access to parts of the airplane's digital systems that provide flight critical functions. These new connectivity capabilities may result in security vulnerabilities to the airplane's critical systems. For these design features, the applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for protection and security of airplane systems and data networks against unauthorized access. These proposed special conditions contain the additional safety standards that the Administrator considers necessary to establish a level of safety equivalent to that established by the existing airworthiness standards. Additional special conditions will be issued for other novel or unusual design features of the Boeing Model 787-8 airplanes.

The airport will receive fair market value for the property, which will be subsequently reinvested in another eligible airport improvement project or used for operation and maintenance of the Kendall Miami Executive Airport. Documents reflecting the Sponsor's request are available, by appointment only, for inspection at the Miami Dade Aviation Department Offices and the FAA Airports District Office.
