Airworthiness Directives; Hawker Beechcraft Corporation Models 1900, 1900C, and 1900D Airplanes
Document Number: E8-29591
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2008-12-15
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Hawker Beechcraft Corporation (HBC) Models 1900, 1900C, and 1900D airplanes. This proposed AD would require a one-time visual inspection and repetitive ultrasonic inspections of the left and right main landing gear (MLG) actuators for leaking and/or cracks with replacement of the actuator if leaking and/or cracks are found. This proposed AD results from reports of leaking and cracked actuators. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct leaking and cracks in the MLG actuators, which could result in loss of hydraulic fluid. This condition could lead to an inability to extend or lock down the landing gear, which could result in a gear up landing or a gear collapse on landing.

Establishment of Class E Airspace; Clewiston, FL
Document Number: E8-29269
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-12-15
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action establishes Class E Airspace at Clewiston, FL. Airspace is needed to support new Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) that have been developed for Airglades Airport. As a result, controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet Above Ground Level (AGL) is needed to contain the SIAP and for Instrument Flight Rule (IFR) operations at the airport. The operating status of the airport will change from Visual Flight Rules (VFR) to include IFR operations concurrent with the publication of the SIAP. This action enhances the safety and airspace management of Airglades Airport, Clewiston, FL.
Amendment to Class E Airspace; Rutland, VT
Document Number: E8-29268
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-12-15
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action revises the Class E Airspace at Rutland-Southern Vermont Regional (RUT); Rutland, VT to provide adequate controlled airspace for those aircraft using Instrument Approach Procedures to the airport. The IRA NDB has been decommissioned and new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) have been developed. This rule also imparts a technical amendment to change the name of the airport from Rutland State Airport to Rutland-Southern Vermont Regional. This action will enhance the safety and airspace management around Rutland- Southern Vermont Regional.
