Federal Aviation Administration July 19, 2007 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Special Conditions; Symphony Aircraft Industries, Inc. Model SA160; Protection of Systems for High Intensity Radiated Fields (HIRF)
Document Number: E7-14050
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-07-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These special conditions are issued to Symphony Aircraft Industries, Inc. for a type design change to the SA160 airplane. This airplane will have novel and unusual design features when compared to the state of technology envisaged in the applicable airworthiness standards. These novel and unusual design features include the installation of electronic flight instrument system (EFIS) displays (Entegra Avionics Suite) manufactured by Avidyne Corporation for which the applicable regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate airworthiness standards for the protection of these systems from the effects of high intensity radiated fields (HIRF). These special conditions contain the additional safety standards that the Administrator considers necessary to establish a level of safety equivalent to the airworthiness standards applicable to these airplanes.
Airworthiness Directives; Cessna Aircraft Company, Models 172, 182, and 206 Series Airplanes
Document Number: E7-13984
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-07-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Cessna Aircraft Company (Cessna), Models 172, 182, and 206 series airplanes. This proposed AD would require you to remove the seats, modify the seat base/back attach brackets, and reinstall the seats of all the crew seats of the affected airplanes and seats 3 and 4 on Model 206 series airplanes. This proposed AD results from reports of the seat base/back attach bracket failing where it is welded to the seat base. We are proposing this AD to prevent failure of the seat base/back attach brackets, which could result in the seats collapsing backwards during flight with consequent loss of control.
