Federal Aviation Administration November 9, 2010 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-215-1A10 (CL-215), CL-215-6B11 (CL-215T Variant), and CL-215-6B11 (CL-415 Variant) Airplanes
Document Number: 2010-28275
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-11-09
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; The Cessna Aircraft Company Model 750 Airplanes
Document Number: 2010-28274
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-11-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Model 750 airplanes. This proposed AD would require an inspection to determine the serial numbers of the auxiliary power unit (APU) generator and the left and right engine direct current (DC) generators, and related corrective actions if necessary. This proposed AD would also require revising the airplane flight manual. This proposed AD results from a report of a DC generator overvoltage event which caused smoke in the cockpit and damage to numerous avionics and electrical components. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct an overvoltage condition on the DC electrical busses caused by exciter stator winding failures, and subsequent failure of the generator control unit (GCU) overvoltage protection circuitry, which could result in damage to critical electrical and avionics components.
Establishment and Amendment of Area Navigation (RNAV) Routes; Alaska
Document Number: 2010-28192
Type: Rule
Date: 2010-11-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action establishes two and modifies four Area Navigation (RNAV) routes in Alaska. T and Q-routes are Air Traffic Service (ATS) routes, based on RNAV, for use by aircraft having instrument flight rules (IFR)-approved Global Positioning System (GPS)/Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) equipment, or Distance Measuring Equipment (DME)/DME Inertial Reference Unit (IRU) navigation capability. The FAA is taking this action to enhance safety and improve the efficient use of the navigable airspace in Alaska.

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; Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701, & 702), Model CL-600-2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705), and Model CL-600-2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900) Airplanes

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Model 757 Airplanes
Document Number: 2010-28160
Type: Rule
Date: 2010-11-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Model 757 airplanes. This AD requires changing the lower fixed leading edge panel assemblies immediately outboard of the nacelles at slats 4 and 7. This AD results from reports of Model 757 airplanes in service that have drain holes and unsealed panel assemblies in the fixed leading edge adjacent to the inboard end of slats 4 and 7 that are too close to the hot portion of the engines. We are issuing this AD to prevent fuel leaking onto an engine and a consequent fire.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701, & 702), CL-600-2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705), and CL-600-2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900) Airplanes

We are superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. That AD currently requires repetitive high frequency eddy current inspections to detect cracking in the vertical radius (also known as the ``vertical leg'') of the upper cap of the center wing rear spar, and repair if necessary. This new AD expands the area to be inspected by including inspections to detect cracking of the horizontal flange of the upper cap of the left and right center wing rear spar, and repair if necessary. This new AD also adds certain airplanes to the applicability. This AD was prompted by reports of cracking in the vertical radius of the upper cap of the center wing rear spar, and the horizontal flange on the inboard side of the of the rear spar upper cap, which resulted from stress corrosion. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct cracking in the vertical leg or the horizontal flange of the upper cap of the left or right center wing rear spar, which could cause a possible fuel leak, damage to the wing skin, and structural failure of the upper cap, and result in reduced structural integrity of the airplane.
