Airworthiness Directives; Turbomeca Arrius 2F Turboshaft Engines
Document Number: E7-9721
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-05-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for Turbomeca Arrius 2F turboshaft engines. That AD currently requires removing from service certain serial number (SN) fuel control units (FCUs) or replacing the constant delta pressure (delta P) diaphragm in those FCUs. This AD requires replacing all FCUs not incorporating modification Tf 55 with FCUs that incorporate modification Tf 55. This AD results from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and Turbomeca expanding the applicability to the full population of FCUs installed on Arrius 2F turboshaft engines. FCUs not incorporating modification Tf 55 are susceptible to having an improperly assembled constant delta P diaphragm. We are issuing this AD to prevent an uncommanded engine in-flight shutdown on a single-engine helicopter, resulting in a forced autorotation landing or an accident.

Document Number: 07-2514
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-05-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This notice proposed to establish Class E airspace at Centreville, AL. An Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) Standard Instrument Approach Procedure (SIAP) Runway (RWY) 10 has been developed for Bibb County Airport. As a result, controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet Above Ground Level (AGL) is needed to contain the SIAP and for Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at Bibb County Airport. The operating status of the airport will change from Visual Flight Rules (VFR) to include IFR operations concurrent with the publication of the SIAP.
Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Vero Beach, FL
Document Number: 07-2511
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-05-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This notice proposes to establish Class E2 airspace at Vero Beach, FL. As a result of an evaluation, it has been determined Class E Airspace Designated as Surface Areas should be established for Vero Beach Municipal Airport. Miami Air Route Traffic Control Center has communications capabilities and weather observation reporting when the Vero Beach tower is closed. Therefore, the airport will meet criteria for Class E2 airspace. Class E2 surface area airspace is required when the control tower is closed to contain Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) and other Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport. This action would establish Class E2 airspace extending upward from the surface to and including 2,500 feet MSL within a 4.2- mile radius of the airport and within 3.2 miles each side of the 261[deg] bearing from the Vero Beach Nondirectional Radio Beacon (NDB) extending from the 4.2 mile radius of the Vero Beach Municipal Airport to 7 miles west of the NDB.
Public Notice for Waiver of Aeronautical Land-Use Assurance Rickenbacker International Airport Columbus, OH
Document Number: 07-2510
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-05-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is considering a proposal to change a portion of the airport from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use and to authorize the release of 188.653 acres of vacant airport property previously used for agricultural purposes for the proposed development of bulk warehouse/distribution facilities as a component of the Rickenbacker Global Logistics Park. The land was acquired by the Rickenbacker Port Authority through three Quitclaim Deeds from the United States of American dated March 30, 1984, September 22, 2004 (amended and restated August 26, 2005) and May 16, 2005. There are no impacts to the airport by allowing the airport to dispose of the property. Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the disposal of the subject airport property nor a determination of eligibility for grant-in-aid funding from the FAA. The CRAA will receive $4,245,000 for the parcel. In accordance with section 47107(h) of title 49, United States Code, this notice is required to be published in the Federal Register 30 days before modifying the land-use assurance that requires the property to be used for an aeronautical purpose.
Airworthiness Directives; Eurocopter France Model EC130 B4 Helicopters
Document Number: E7-9708
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-05-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This document proposes adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Eurocopter France (Eurocopter) Model EC 130 B4 helicopters, with certain twist grip assemblies installed. This proposal would require inspecting the pilot and co-pilot collective levers for proper bonding between the twist grip drive tubes and the control pinions and if debonding is present, replacing the collective levers before further flight. This proposal is prompted by one incident in which the engine remained at idle speed although the twist grip had been turned to the flight position. The actions specified by this proposed AD are intended to detect debonding between the twist grip drive tubes and the control pinions on the pilot and co-pilot collective levers to prevent loss of cockpit throttle control of the engine, and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.
Airworthiness Directives; Pratt & Whitney (PW) PW4164, PW4168, and PW4168A Turbofan Engines
Document Number: E7-9697
Type: Proposed Rule

Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain EMBRAER Model EMB-145LR, -145XR, and -145MP airplanes; and Model EMB-135BJ and -135LR airplanes. This AD requires replacing the electrical bonding clamps inside the fuel tanks and adjacent areas. This AD results from a report of the failure of a fitting clamp of an electrical bonding cable for the fuel tubing. We are issuing this AD to prevent loss of bonding protection in the interior of the fuel tanks or adjacent areas, and a consequent potential source of ignition in a fuel tank and possible fire or explosion.
Airworthiness Directives; Cessna Aircraft Company Models 208 and 208B Airplanes
Document Number: E7-9398
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-05-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) to supersede AD 2006-06-06, which applies to certain Cessna Aircraft Company (Cessna) Models 208 and 208B airplanes. AD 2006-06-06 currently requires you to incorporate information into the applicable section of the Airplane Flight Manual (AFM) and Pilot's Operating Handbook (POH) and requires you to install placards. Since we issued AD 2006-06-06, Cessna issued new S1 Known Icing Equipment AFM supplements and developed a low airspeed awareness system. Consequently, this AD requires you to incorporate the applicable AFM supplement revision and temporarily retain the requirements of AD 2006-06-06 until the above revisions are incorporated. One of the AFM requirements is the installation of a functional low airspeed awareness system to operate the airplane in known icing conditions. We are issuing this AD to assure that the pilot has enough information and the necessary equipment to prevent loss of control of the airplane while in-flight during icing conditions.
Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 747-400 Series Airplanes
Document Number: E7-9396
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-05-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Boeing Model 747-400 series airplanes. This AD requires repetitive inspections for any crack in the upper deck floor beam at station 400, which include inspecting the floor beam web and chords, certain fastener holes at the intersection of the floor beam and frame on both sides of the airplane, and certain floor panel attachment fastener holes at the floor beam upper chords. This AD also requires corrective action if necessary. This AD results from several reports indicating that fatigue cracking was found in upper deck floor beams made from 7000 series aluminum alloy. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct cracking in the upper deck floor beam at station 400, which could extend and sever the floor beam. A severed floor beam could result in loss of controllability and rapid decompression of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; APEX Aircraft (Type Certificate No. A36EU Formerly Held by AVIONS MUDRY et CIE) Model CAP 10 B Airplanes

Airworthiness Directives; Cirrus Design Corporation Models SR20 and SR22 Airplanes
Document Number: 07-2438
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-05-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Cirrus Design Corporation (CDC) Models SR20 and SR22 airplanes. This proposed AD would require you to replace the pick-up collar support and nylon screws, of the Cirrus Airplane Parachute System (CAPS), with a new design pick-up collar support and custom tension screws. This proposed AD results from a CDC report of an in-flight CAPS activation where the parachute failed to successfully deploy. We are proposing this AD to correct pick-up collar support fasteners of the CAPS, which could result in the premature separation of the collar. This condition, if not corrected, could result in the parachute failing to successfully deploy (CAPS failure).
Airworthiness Directives; Allied Ag Cat Productions, Inc. (Type Certificate No. 1A16 Formerly Held by Schweizer Aircraft Corp.) G-164 Series Airplanes
Document Number: E7-9402
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-05-16
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 82-07-04, which applies to certain Allied Ag Cat Productions, Inc. (Ag Cat) G-164 series airplanes. AD 82-07-04 currently requires you to modify the fuel shut-off valve control by installation of a new stop-plate. Since we issued AD 82-07-04, we have determined the need to add airplane models and serial numbers that were not previously included in the applicability. Consequently, this proposed AD would retain the actions of AD 82-07-04 and add airplane models and serial numbers to the applicability. We are proposing this AD to prevent turning the fuel shut-off valve clockwise past the ``ON'' position stop which, if not corrected, could allow the fuel valve to be rotated to an unplacarded ``OFF'' position. This condition could lead to reduced fuel flow and consequent loss of engine power.
Airworthiness Directives; Empresa Brasileira de Aeronautica S.A. (EMBRAER) Model EMB-135BJ Airplanes
Document Number: E7-9394
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-05-16
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: It has been found cases in which the drain mast of the water and waste system does not meet the SFAR-88 (Special Federal Aviation Regulation No. 88) requirements. In case of fuel leakage or fuel vapor release, the proximity of this mast with the fuel tank may cause fuel ignition, leading to a possible tank explosion.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A300-600 Series Airplanes and Model A310 Series Airplanes
Document Number: E7-9391
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-05-16
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to supersede an existing airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to certain Airbus Model A300-600, A310-200, and A310-300 series airplanes. The existing AD currently requires inspecting for certain serial numbers on elevators, and doing a detailed inspection, visual inspection with a low-angle light, and tap- test inspection of the upper and lower surfaces of the external skins on certain identified elevators for any damage (i.e., debonding of the graphite fiber reinforced plastic/Tedlar film protection, bulges, debonding of the honeycomb core to the carbon fiber reinforced plastic, abnormal surface reflections, and torn-out plies), and doing corrective actions if necessary. This proposed AD would also require inspecting for damage of the identified elevators in accordance with a new repetitive inspection program, at new repetitive intervals; and would provide an optional terminating action for the repetitive inspections. This proposed AD results from reports of damage caused by moisture/water inside the elevator. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct debonding of the skins on the elevators, which could cause reduced structural integrity of an elevator and reduced controllability of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 757-200 and 757-300 Series Airplanes
Document Number: E7-9390
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-05-16
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Boeing Model 757-200 and 757-300 series airplanes. This proposed AD would require installing a copper bonding jumper between a ground and the clamp on the tube of the forward and aft gray water composite drain masts. This proposed AD results from a report of charred insulation blankets and burned wires around the forward gray water composite drain mast found during an inspection of the forward cargo compartment on a Model 767-300F airplane. We are proposing this AD to prevent a fire near a composite drain mast and possible disruption of the electrical power system due to a lightning strike on a composite drain mast, which could result in the loss of several functions essential for safe flight.

We are superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) by adopting a new 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:
Airworthiness Directives; General Electric Company (GE) GE90 Series Turbofan Engines
Document Number: E7-8990
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-05-10
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for GE GE90-110B1, -113B, and -115B series turbofan engines with certain Turbine Center Frames (TCFs) installed. This AD requires removing certain TCFs, listed by part number (P/N) in this AD, from service before exceeding 14,300 flight cycles. This AD results from a report that GE inadvertently omitted some TCF P/Ns from the Airworthiness Limitations Section (ALS) of the engine manual. We are issuing this AD to prevent structural failure of the TCF with uncontained failure of low pressure turbine (LPT) rotating parts. Uncontained failure of the LPT rotating parts could result in damage to the airplane and possible loss of control of the airplane.
Extended Operations (ETOPS) of Multi-Engine Airplanes
Document Number: E7-8810
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-05-10
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
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 adds the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Information Collection Control Number indicating approval of the information collection requirements of the final rule. This amendment also makes three corrections: In part 135, it corrects the dual maintenance paragraph to conform to part 121 and deletes a redundant defining of ``adequate airport''; in part 121 it corrects the rule language applicable to those persons who must accomplish and certify by signature the completion of ETOPS tasks; and in parts 121 and 135 it corrects the hours required for notification of maintenance problems based on an earlier FAA rulemaking. None of these changes is substantive, but will clarify the final rule for the affected public.
