Airworthiness Directives; PIAGGIO AERO INDUSTRIES S.p.A. Model P-180 Airplanes
Document Number: E7-13713
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-07-16
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 Criteria: Airship Design Criteria for Zeppelin Luftschifftechnik GmbH Model LZ N07 Airship
Document Number: E7-13707
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-07-16
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action reopens the comment period stated in the notice of availability of proposed design criteria and request for comments for the airworthiness criteria on the airship design criteria for the Zeppelin Luftschifftechnik GmbH Model LZ N07 Airship. The notice was issued on April 10, 2007 and published on May 3, 2007 (72 FR 24656). In that document, the FAA announced the availability and request for comments on a design criteria for the airship.
Standard Instrument Approach Procedures, Weather Takeoff Minimums; Miscellaneous Amendments
Document Number: E7-13224
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-07-16
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.

Airworthiness Directives; Bell Helicopter Textron Canada Model 430 Helicopters
Document Number: 07-3434
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-07-16
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This document proposes adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Bell Helicopter Textron Canada (BHTC) Model 430 helicopters. This proposal would require replacing a certain servo actuator-to- actuator support attachment bolt (bolt) with an airworthy bolt. This proposal would also require establishing a retirement life for certain bolts and recording the retirement life on a component history card or equivalent record. This proposal is prompted by further evaluation of certain fatigue-critical parts, resulting in establishing a life limit of 5000 hours for the affected bolts. The actions specified by this proposed AD are intended to prevent fatigue failure of the bolt and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.
