Aviation Rulemaking Advisory Committee-New Task
The FAA assigned the Aviation Rulemaking Advisory Committee a new task to: Review and recommend revisions to certain requirements for operation of aviation maintenance technician schools. This notice is to inform the public of this ARAC activity.
Airworthiness Directives; Hawker Beechcraft Corporation (Type Certificate No. A00010WI previously held by Raytheon Aircraft Company) Model 390 Airplanes
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Hawker Beechcraft Corporation Model 390 Airplanes. This proposed AD would require you to inspect the starter-generator to determine the serial number (S/N) and suffix letter, which indicates if the part is defective, and replace any defective starter-generator with one of new design. This proposed AD results from reports of a manufacturing error where certain starter-generators may have been improperly shimmed. We are proposing this AD to detect and replace defective starter-generators, which could result in premature starter- generator failure. This failure could lead to increased chances of dual starter-generator failure on the same flight.
Standard Instrument Approach Procedures, Weather Takeoff Minimums; Miscellaneous Amendments
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.
IFR Altitudes; Miscellaneous Amendments
This amendment adopts miscellaneous amendments to the required IFR (instrument flight rules) altitudes and changeover points for certain Federal airways, jet routes, or direct routes for which a minimum or maximum en route authorized IFR altitude is prescribed. This regulatory action is needed because of changes occurring in the National Airspace System. These changes are designed to provide for the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace under instrument conditions in the affected areas.
