The operating status of the airport will change from Visual Flight Rules (VFR) to include IFR operations concurrent with the publication of the SIAP. Additional controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of IFR operations at Green County, Waynesburg, PA.
Special Conditions: Boeing Model 777 Series Airplanes; Seats With Non-Traditional, Large, Non-Metallic Panels
Document Number: E8-3141
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-02-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These special conditions are for Boeing Model 777 series airplanes. These airplanes will have a novel or unusual design feature(s) associated with seats that include non-traditional, large, non-metallic panels that would affect survivability during a post-crash fire event. The applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for this design feature. These 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.
Proposed Modification of Restricted Areas R-4401A, R-4401B, and R-4401C; Camp Shelby, MS
Document Number: E8-3138

Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes a minor expansion of Restricted Areas R- 4401A, B, and C, Camp Shelby, MS, by moving the southeastern corner of the areas approximately two nautical miles to the east of the current position. This change would ensure that aircraft conducting high altitude munitions delivery training at Camp Shelby remain within the confines of restricted airspace.
Airworthiness Directives; Lockheed Model L-1011 Series Airplanes
Document Number: E8-2996
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2008-02-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Lockheed Model L-1011 series airplanes. This proposed AD would require revising the FAA-approved maintenance program by incorporating new airworthiness limitations for fuel tank systems to satisfy Special Federal Aviation Regulation No. 88 requirements. This proposed AD would also require the accomplishment of certain fuel system modifications, the initial inspections of certain repetitive fuel system limitations to phase in those inspections, and repair if necessary. This proposed AD results from a design review of the fuel tank systems. We are proposing this AD to prevent the potential for ignition sources inside fuel tanks caused by latent failures, alterations, repairs, or maintenance actions, which, in combination with flammable fuel vapors, could result in a fuel tank explosion and consequent loss of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Taylorcraft Models A, B, and F Series Airplanes
Document Number: E8-2995
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2008-02-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Taylorcraft Models A, B, and F series airplanes. This proposed AD would require inspection of the wing strut attach fittings for corrosion or cracks and would require repair or replacement if corrosion or cracks are found. This proposed AD results from data collected from an accident involving a Taylorcraft Model BF12-65 airplane. The wing separated from the airplane after the wing strut attach fitting failed due to corrosion. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct corrosion or cracks in the wing strut attach fittings. This condition, if not corrected, could result in failure of the wing strut attach fittings and lead to wing separation and loss of control.

Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 737-600, -700, -700C, -800 and -900 Series Airplanes
Document Number: E8-2887
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2008-02-15
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Boeing Model 737-600, -700, -700C, -800 and -900 series airplanes. This proposed AD would require an inspection of the escape slides for the forward and aft entry and service doors to determine the part number and service bulletin number stenciled on the escape slide girt, and modification of the escape slide assemblies. This proposed AD also would require concurrent modification of the escape slide latch assembly; concurrent inspection of the escape slides to determine the part number and service bulletin number stenciled on the escape slide girts, and replacement of the trigger housing on the regulator valve with improved trigger housing if necessary; and concurrent replacement of the rod in the pilot valve regulator with a new improved rod; as applicable. This proposed AD results from reports that certain escape slides did not automatically inflate when deployed or after the manual inflation cable was pulled. We are proposing this AD to prevent failure of an escape slide to inflate when deployed, which could result in the slide being unusable during an emergency evacuation and consequent injury to passengers or crewmembers.
Extended Operations (ETOPS) of Multi Engine Airplanes
Document Number: E8-2879
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-02-15
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is delaying the compliance date for certain sections of a final rule, published January 16, 2007, that established regulations governing the design, operation, and maintenance of certain airplanes operated on flights that fly over 180 minutes from an adequate airport. The extension of the compliance date is necessary to give operators additional time to gain a comprehensive understanding of Extended Operations (ETOPS) requirements, develop training and procedures, and implement safety measures established in the final rule. In addition, the regulatory text for certain sections is amended to reflect this delay of compliance dates.

The FAA is correcting typographical errors in three existing airworthiness directives (ADs) that were published in the Federal Register on January 8, 2008 (73 FR 1269); January 7, 2008 (73 FR 1052); and January 7, 2008 (73 FR 1055). The errors resulted in incorrect docket numbers. One AD applies to all Viking Air Limited Model (Caribou) DHC-4 and (Caribou) DHC-4A airplanes. The other two ADs apply to all Boeing Model 747-100, 747-100B, 747-100B SUD, 747-200B, 747- 200C, 747-200F, 747-300, 747-400, 747-400D, 747-400F, 747SR, and 747SP series airplanes. The Viking Air AD requires doing a fluorescent penetrant inspection for cracking of certain upper engine mount bracket assemblies, and corrective actions if necessary. One of the Boeing ADs requires revising the FAA-approved maintenance inspection program to include inspections that will give no less than the required damage tolerance rating for each structural significant item, and repair of cracked structure. The other Boeing AD requires implementing a corrosion prevention and control program.
