Airworthiness Directives; Saab Model SAAB 2000 Airplanes
Document Number: E8-1812
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-02-05
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This 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 Directives; 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; and Model 767-200 and -300 Series Airplanes; Equipped With Certain Goodrich Evacuation Systems
Document Number: E8-1724
Type: Rule

Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain 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; and Model 767-200 and -300 series airplanes; equipped with certain Goodrich evacuation systems. For certain airplanes, this AD requires replacing the evacuation system shear-pin restraints with new ones. For certain other airplanes, this AD requires an inspection for manufacturing lot numbers; and a general visual inspection of the shear-pin restraints for discrepancies, and corrective actions if necessary. This AD results from several reports of corroded shear-pin restraints that prevented Goodrich evacuation systems from deploying properly. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of an evacuation system, which could impede an emergency evacuation and increase the chance of injury to passengers and flightcrew during the evacuation.
Airworthiness Directives; Eurocopter Model AS 332 L2 Helicopters
Document Number: E8-1701
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-02-05
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Eurocopter Model AS 332 L2 helicopters. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), the Technical Agent of France, with which we have a bilateral agreement, states in the MCAI:
Establishment of Class E Airspace; Wheatland, WY
Document Number: E8-1846
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-02-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action corrects a final rule published in the Federal Register January 8, 2008 (73 FR 1271), Airspace Docket No. 07-ANM-10, FAA Docket No. FAA-2007-28649. In that rule, an error was made in the legal description for Wheatland, WY. Specifically, the latitude referencing Wheatland, Phifer Airfield, WY stated ``* * * lat. 43[deg]03[min]20[sec] N.'' instead of ``* * * lat. 42[deg]03[min]20[sec] N.'' This action corrects that error.
Airworthiness Directives; CFM International, S.A. CFM56-7B Series Turbofan Engines
Document Number: E8-1830
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-02-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for CFM International, S.A. CFM56-7B series turbofan engines. This AD requires revising the Airworthiness Limitations Section (ALS) in the Engine Shop Manual (ESM) and the air carrier's approved continuous airworthiness maintenance program (CAMP) to add mandatory inspections of certain low pressure turbine rear frames (TRFs) to the ALS or CAMP. This AD results from a refined lifing analysis by the engine manufacturer that shows the need to identify an initial threshold for inspecting certain TRFs. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the TRF from low-cycle fatigue cracks. Failure of the TRF could result in engine separation from the airplane, which could lead to loss of control of the airplane.
Approval of Noise Compatibility Program; Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Atlanta, GA
Document Number: 08-464
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-02-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces its findings on the Noise Compatibility Program submitted by the City of Atlanta under the provisions of 49 U.S.C. (the Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act, hereinafter referred to as ``the Act'') and 14 CFR part 150. These findings are made in recognition of the description of Federal and nonfederal responsibilities in Senate Report No. 96-52 (1980). On April 10, 2007, the FAA determined that the noise exposure maps submitted by the City of Atlanta under Part 150 were in compliance with applicable requirements. On January 24, 2008, the FAA approved the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport Noise Compatibility Program. All of the recommendations of the program were approved. No program elements relating to new or revised flight procedures for noise abatement were proposed by the airport operator.

Airworthiness Directives; Eurocopter Deutschland GmbH Model EC135 Helicopters
Document Number: E8-1702
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-02-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This document publishes in the Federal Register an amendment adopting Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2007-26-51, which was sent previously to all known U.S. owners and operators of Eurocopter Deutschland GmbH (Eurocopter) Model EC135 helicopters by individual letters. This AD requires, within 5 hours time-in-service (TIS), inspecting the tail rotor control rod (control rod) and adjoining ball pivot and replacing any unairworthy parts before further flight. This amendment is prompted by a report of a fatal accident involving the failure of a control rod. The actions specified by this AD are intended to prevent failure of a control rod and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.
