Operating Limitations at Newark Liberty International Airport
Document Number: 08-1278
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-05-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
In a proposed order published on March 18, 2008, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) tentatively identified the parameters of an order that would temporarily limit scheduled flight operations at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR).\1\ The FAA issued the proposal as a result of persistent congestion and delays at EWR during the peak operating hours, as well as a dramatic projected increase in flight delays at the airport during the summer of 2008 if proposed schedules were implemented as requested by carriers. After evaluating the written comment submitted to the public docket in this matter, the FAA is issuing this final Order, which will take effect at 6 a.m., Eastern Time, on June 20, 2008.
Congestion Management Rule for John F. Kennedy International Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport
Document Number: 08-1271
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2008-05-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to establish procedures to address congestion in the New York City area by assigning slots at John F. Kennedy (JFK) and Newark Liberty (Newark) International Airports in a way that allows carriers to respond to market forces to drive efficient airline behavior. This proposal is a companion to a separate rulemaking initiative addressing congestion mitigation at New York's LaGuardia airport. Today's proposal is similar to what we have proposed for LaGuardia airport, but it takes into consideration the characteristics of both JFK and Newark, including the large number of international flights at these airports and our international obligations. The FAA proposes to extend the caps on the operations at the two airports, assign to existing operators the majority of slots at the airports, and create a market by annually auctioning off a limited number of slots in each of the first five years of this rule. The FAA is proposing two alternatives. Under the first alternative, the assignment of slots at JFK and Newark would be conducted through a uniform mechanism. The FAA would auction off a portion of the slots and would use the proceeds to mitigate congestion and delay in the New York City area. Under the second alternative, the same auction procedure would apply at Newark as under the first alternative but at JFK the auction proceeds would go to the carrier holding the slot rather than to the FAA. For both alternatives, this proposal also contains provisions for minimum usage, capping unscheduled operations, and withdrawal for operational need. The FAA proposes to sunset the rule in ten years.
Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 747-100, 747-100B, 747-200B, 747-200C, 747-200F, 747-300, 747SR, and 747SP Series Airplanes
Document Number: E8-11330
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-05-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Boeing Model 747-100, 747-100B, 747-200B, 747-200C, 747-200F, 747-300, 747SR, and 747SP series airplanes. This AD requires an inspection to determine if acceptable external skin doublers are installed at the stringer 6 (S-6) lap splices, between station (STA) 340 and STA 400. For airplanes without the acceptable external skin doublers, this AD requires repetitive related investigative actions and corrective actions if necessary. This AD also provides an optional terminating modification for the repetitive related investigative actions. This AD results from a report of cracked fastener holes at the right S-6 lap splice between STA 340 and STA 380. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct cracking in the fuselage skin, which could result in rapid decompression and loss of structural integrity.
Special Conditions: AmSafe, Inc., Various Transport Category Airplanes; Inflatable Restraints
Document Number: E8-11297
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-05-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These special conditions are issued for the transport category airplanes listed in Table 1. These airplanes, as modified by AmSafe, Inc., will have a novel or unusual design feature associated with the lap belt or shoulder harness portion of the safety belt that contains an integrated inflatable airbag installed on passenger seats. 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.
Airworthiness Directives; Empresa Brasileira de Aeronautica S.A. (EMBRAER) Model ERJ 170 and ERJ 190 Airplanes
Document Number: E8-11289
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2008-05-20
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 Directives; Boeing Model 757-200 and -200PF Series Airplanes, and Model 767-200 and -300 Series Airplanes
Document Number: E8-11286
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2008-05-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Boeing Model 757-200 and -200PF series airplanes; and Model 767-200 and -300 series airplanes. This proposed AD would require doing an inspection to determine the part number and serial number of the hub assembly of the ram air turbine (RAT), and replacing the hub assembly of the RAT with a new, serviceable, or reworked and re-identified hub assembly if necessary. This proposed AD results from reports indicating that the counterweights in some hub assemblies of the RATs could be under strength and fracture when they are extended in flight. We are proposing this AD to prevent a fractured counterweight on the hub assembly of the RAT, which will cause an overspeed condition, and consequent turbine blade separation, possible injury to passengers, possible airplane structural damage, and an inoperative RAT. An inoperative RAT will cause the loss of hydraulic power to the primary flight controls in cases where both engines are shut down in flight, resulting in subsequent loss of control of the airplane.

Airworthiness Directives; Engine Components Inc. (ECi) Reciprocating Engine Cylinder Assemblies
Document Number: E8-11116
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2008-05-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Lycoming Engines (formerly Textron Lycoming) models 320, 360, and 540 series, ``Parallel Valve'' reciprocating engines, with certain Engine Components Inc. (ECi) cylinder assemblies, part number (P/N) AEL65102 series ``Titan'', installed. This proposed AD would require initial and repetitive visual inspections and compression tests to detect cracks at the head-to-barrel interface, replacement of cylinder assemblies found cracked, and replacement of certain cylinder assemblies, at new reduced times-in-service. This proposed AD results from reports of 45 failures with head separations of ECi cylinder assemblies. We are proposing this AD to prevent loss of engine power due to cracks at the head-to-barrel interface in the cylinder assemblies and possible engine failure caused by separation of a cylinder head, which could result in loss of control of the aircraft.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier Model CL-600-2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700 & 701) Series Airplanes and Model CL-600-2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900) Series Airplanes
Document Number: E8-11112
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2008-05-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to revise an existing airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to certain Bombardier Model CL-600-2C10 (Regional Jet series 700 & 701) series airplanes and Model CL-600-2D24 (Regional Jet series 900) series airplanes. The existing AD currently requires revising the Airworthiness Limitations section of the Instructions of Continued Airworthiness by incorporating new repetitive inspections and an optional terminating action for the repetitive inspections, and repairing any crack. This proposed AD would clarify the applicability of the existing AD. This proposed AD results from reports of hydraulic pressure loss in either the number 1 or number 2 hydraulic system due to breakage or leakage of hydraulic lines in the aft equipment bay and reports of cracks on the aft pressure bulkhead web around these feed- through holes. We are proposing this AD to prevent loss of hydraulic pressure, which could result in reduced controllability of the airplane, and to detect and correct cracks on the aft pressure bulkhead web, which could result in reduced structural integrity of the aft pressure bulkhead.
Airworthiness Directives; Various Aircraft Equipped With Honeywell Primus II RNZ-850( )/-851(-) Integrated Navigation Units
Document Number: E8-11104
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2008-05-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to supersede an existing airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to various aircraft equipped with certain Honeywell Primus II RNZ-850( )/-851( ) integrated navigation units (INUs). The existing AD, as one alternative for compliance, provides for a one-time inspection to determine whether a certain modification has been installed on the Honeywell Primus II NV-850 navigation receiver module (NRM), which is part of the INU. In lieu of accomplishing this inspection, and for aircraft found to have an affected NRM, that AD provides for revising the aircraft flight manual to include new limitations for instrument landing system approaches. That AD also requires an inspection to determine whether certain other modifications have been done on the NRM; and doing related investigative, corrective, and other specified actions, as applicable; as well as further modifications to address additional anomalies. This proposed AD would extend the compliance time for a certain inspection and associated actions. This proposed AD would also revise the applicability to include additional affected INUs. This proposed AD results from reports indicating that erroneous localizer and glideslope indications have occurred on certain aircraft equipped with the subject INUs. We are proposing this AD to ensure that the flight crew has accurate localizer and glideslope deviation indications. An erroneous localizer or glideslope deviation indication could lead to the aircraft making an approach off the localizer, which could result in impact with an obstacle or terrain.

Notice of Availability of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (Draft EIS) for the Replacement of Runway 10R/28L, Development of a New Passenger Terminal, and Other Associated Airport Projects at Port Columbus International Airport (CMH) and Notice of Public Hearing
Document Number: E8-10184
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-05-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is issuing this Notice of Availability to advise the public that a Draft EIS will be available for public review beginning May 16, 2008. The document was prepared pursuant to major environmental directives to comply with NEPA: Section 102(2)(c) of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (Pub. L. 91-190); Section 106 consultation for impacts to historic structures, as identified in 36 CFR 800.8, Coordination with the National Environmental Policy Act; U.S. Department of Transportation Section 303(c) consultation; and other applicable Federal and State environmental laws, regulations, and Executive Orders. The Draft EIS was prepared in response to a proposal presented to the FAA by the Columbus Regional Airport Authority (CRAA), the owner and operator of CMH and identified in the Draft EIS as the Airport Sponsor, for environmental review. The FAA prepared this Draft EIS to analyze and disclose potential environmental impacts related to possible Federal actions at CMH. Numerous Federal actions would be necessary if airfield development were to be implemented. Proposed improvements include replacement of Runway 10R/28L, Development of a New Passenger Terminal, and other airfield projects (see below). The Draft EIS presents the purpose and need for the proposed Federal action, analysis of reasonable alternatives, including the No Action alternative, discussion of impacts for each reasonable alternative, and supporting appendices. The FAA will consider all information contained in this Draft EIS and additional information that may be provided during the public comment period before issuing a Final EIS and Agency decision regarding the possible alternatives and Federal actions. The Airport Sponsor proposes to replace Runway 10R/28L at CMH, approximately 700 feet south of the existing Runway 10R/28L; develop new terminal facilities in the midfield area; provide ancillary facilities in support of the replacement runway and midfield terminal; and implement noise abatement air traffic procedures developed for the replacement runway. The replacement runway would be 10,113 feet long. This length would maintain CMH's ability to accommodate current and projected airport operations. Existing Runway 10R/28L would be decommissioned as a runway and converted into a taxiway upon commissioning of the replacement runway. In addition, a south taxiway and north parallel taxiways to proposed Runway 10R/28L would be constructed. To meet future aircraft parking and passenger processing requirements, new midfield terminal facilities are needed. The Draft EIS assesses a development envelope that is defined as an area large enough to encompass Phase I and II of the CRAA terminal development program. The Draft EIS discusses the number of gates, approximate square footage, approximate curb frontage, and the number of passengers that the terminal would accommodate. Ancillary facilities in support of the replacement runway and midfield terminal would be constructed. The facilities include roadway relocations and construction; parking improvements; property acquisition; and relocation of residences, as necessary. The CRAA has prepared a 14 CFR Part 150 Noise Compatibility Study Update (Part 150 Update) to address the current and future noise conditions. The Part 150 Update includes an analysis of the potential noise and land use impacts resulting from the proposed development of relocating Runway 10R/28L to the south, as well as possible mitigation options. The noise abatement air traffic options recommended through the Part 150 Update are included in the EIS as part of the proposed project. In addition, the land use mitigation that is recommended in the Part 150 Update is included in the EIS as mitigation for impacts resulting from the proposed project. Public Comment and Information Workshop/Public Hearing: The public comment period on the Draft EIS will start May 16, 2008 and will end on July 11, 2008. Two Public Information Workshops and Public Hearings will be held on June 11 and 12, 2008 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the following locations:
Airworthiness Directives; EADS SOCATA Model TBM 700 Airplanes
Document Number: E8-10066
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-05-09
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) issued by the 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; Agusta S.p.A. Model A109C, A109E, and A109K2 Helicopters
Document Number: E8-10054
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-05-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This document supersedes Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2001-24- 07 R1 and adopts AD 2007-26-52, which was sent previously to all known U.S. owners and operators of Agusta S.p.A. (Agusta) Model A109C, A109E, and A109K2 helicopters by individual letters. This AD requires inspections for swelling, deformation, bonding separation, or a crack on each main rotor blade (MRB) with a certain tip cap installed, and if any of these conditions are found that exceed the prescribed limits, replacing the MRB before further flight. This amendment is prompted by a report of the in-flight loss of part of a tip cap. The actions specified in this AD are intended to prevent an increase in vibration of the MRB and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.
