We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above that would supersede an existing AD. 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:

Public Notice for Waiver of Aeronautical Land-Use Assurance
Document Number: E8-28505
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-12-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is considering a proposal to change a portion of the airport from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use and to authorize the sale of certain airport property. The sale will include a perpetual navigational easement, precluding the building of any structures. The area is a 28.665-acre parcel of vacant land located east of the airport. The land was acquired via warranty deed dated November 18, 1987, recorded November 23, 1987, in Randolph County, Book No. 246, Page No. 490-491. There are no impacts to the airport by allowing the airport to sell the property. The land is not needed for aeronautical use. Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the disposal of the subject airport property nor a determination of eligibility for grant-in aid funding from the FAA. The disposition of the proceeds from the sale of the airport property will be in accordance with FAA's Policy and Procedures Concerning the Use of Airport Revenue, published in the Federal Register on February 16, 1999. In accordance with Section 47107(h) of Title 49, United States Code, this notice is required to be published in the Federal Register 30 days before modifying the land-use assurance that requires the property to be used for an aeronautical purpose.
Notice of Intent To Release Certain Properties From all Terms, Conditions, Reservations and Restrictions of a Quitclaim Deed Agreement Between the City of Palatka and the Federal Aviation Administration for the Kay Larkin Field, Palatka Municipal Airport, Palatka, FL
Document Number: E8-28504
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-12-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA hereby provides notice of intent to release certain airport properties (14.26 acres) at the Kay Larkin Field, Palatka Municipal Airport, Palatka, FL from the conditions, reservations, and restrictions as contained in an Agreement between the FAA and the City of Palatka, dated February 28, 1947. The release of property will allow the City of Palatka to dispose of the property for other than aeronautical purposes. The property is located in the Section 3, Township 10 South, Range 26 East, of Putnam County. The parcel is currently designated as non-aeronautical use. The property will be disposed of for the purpose of allowing for the construction of a floating dock manufacturing facility. The fair market value of the property has been determined by appraisal to be $25,000 per acre ($356,500). The airport will receive fair market value for the property, which will be subsequently reinvested in another eligible airport improvement project. Documents reflecting the Sponsor's request are available, by appointment only, for inspection at the City of Palatka and the FAA Airports District Office.
Airworthiness Directives; McDonnell Douglas Model DC-9-10, DC-9-20, DC-9-30, DC-9-40, and DC-9-50 Series Airplanes, Equipped With a Tail Cone Evacuation Slide Container Installed in Accordance With Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) ST735SO
Document Number: E8-27937
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-12-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for McDonnell Douglas Model DC-9-10, DC-9-20, DC-9-30, DC-9-40, and DC-9-50 series airplanes, equipped with tail cone evacuation slide containers as specified above. This AD requires modifying the tail cone slide. This AD also requires additional tail cone drops and slide deployments, and repair if necessary. This AD results from several reports of inadvertent tail cone deployments in which the tail cone slide failed to deploy. We are issuing this AD to ensure that the tail cone evacuation slide deploys correctly. Failure of the slide to deploy during an emergency evacuation could result in injury to flightcrew and passengers.
Revisions to Digital Flight Data Recorder Regulations for Boeing 737 Airplanes and for All Part 125 Airplanes
Document Number: E8-28562
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-12-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA amends the regulations governing flight data recorders to increase the number of digital flight data recorder parameters for all Boeing 737 series airplanes manufactured after August 18, 2000. This change is based on safety recommendations from the National Transportation Safety Board following its investigations of two accidents and several incidents involving 737s. The rule also adopts a prohibition on deviations from flight recorder requirements for all airplanes operated under part 125.

Special Conditions: Spectrum Aeronautical, LLC Model 40; Lithium Polymer Battery Installation
Document Number: E8-28491
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2008-12-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes special conditions for the Spectrum Aeronautical, LLC Model 40 (S-40) airplane. This airplane will have a novel or unusual design feature associated with the installation of lithium polymer (Li-Poly) batteries for emergency, main, and auxiliary power unit (APU) applications. The applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for this design feature. These proposed 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; MD Helicopters, Inc. Model MD900 Helicopters
Document Number: E8-28347
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-12-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This document supersedes AD 2008-18-52 and publishes in the Federal Register an amendment adopting Emergency Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2008-22-53 which was sent previously to all known U.S. owners and operators of MD Helicopters, Inc. (MDHI) Model MD900 helicopters by individual letters. This AD requires turning ON both Vertical Stabilizer Control System (VSCS) switches and turning OFF the autopilot (AP/SAS) switch; pulling certain AP/SAS circuit breakers; installing a placard near the AP/SAS master switch; installing an airspeed limitation placard on the instrument panel; and making changes to the Rotorcraft Flight Manual (RFM). This AD is prompted by 4 occurrences in which the left VSCS adapter tubes failed on the MD900 helicopters and the vertical stabilizer became uncontrollable, resulting in reduced yaw control of the helicopter. There were no injuries, but in one occurrence, due to the high speed quick yaw, the helicopter lost a window and a door. The actions specified by this AD are intended to prevent loss of yaw control and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.
Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 777-200LR Series Airplanes Powered by General Electric (GE) Model GE90-110B Engines, and Model 777-300ER Series Airplanes Powered by GE Model GE90-115B Engines
Document Number: E8-28158
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-12-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are revising an existing airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to certain Boeing Model 777-200LR and -300ER series airplanes. That AD currently requires revising the airplane flight manual to prohibit takeoffs at less than full-rated thrust. This new AD reduces the applicability of the existing AD. This AD results from a report of two occurrences of engine thrust rollback during takeoff. We are issuing this AD to prevent dual-engine thrust rollback during the takeoff phase of flight, which could result in the airplane failing to lift off before reaching the end of the runway or failing to clear obstacles below the takeoff flight path.
