Federal Aviation Administration April 2011 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; Hawker Beechcraft Corporation Models B300 and B300C (C-12W) Airplanes
Document Number: 2011-10387
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-04-29
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This proposed AD would require inserting an update to the performance charts in the FAA-approved airplane flight manual and the pilot's operating handbook, part number (P/N) 130- 590031-245. This proposed AD was prompted by an error found in the take-off speeds and field lengths published in the FAA-approved airplane flight manual. We are proposing this AD to correct the published data in the airplane flight manual and the pilot's operating handbook and ensure it corresponds with the published data in the pilot's checklist. This condition, if not corrected, could result in a pilot taking off from shorter runways than required by the airplane if the airplane loses an engine after takeoff decision speed (V1). This could result in the airplane running out of runway before take-off can be accomplished.
Airworthiness Directives; Burl A. Rogers (Type Certificate Previously Held by William Brad Mitchell and Aeronca, Inc.) Models 15AC and S15AC Airplanes
Document Number: 2011-10383
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-04-29
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This document extends the period for public comment on the above-referenced NPRM. The proposed AD would require repetitive inspections of the upper and lower main wing spar cap angles for cracks and/or corrosion and installing inspection access panels. The proposed AD would also require replacing the wing spar cap angles if moderate or severe corrosion is found and applying corrosion inhibitor. The proposed AD was prompted by reports of intergranular exfoliation and corrosion of the upper and/or lower wing main spar cap angles found on the affected airplanes. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct cracks, intergranular exfoliation and corrosion in the wing main spar cap angles, which could result in reduced strength of the wing spar and the load carrying capacity of the wing. This could lead to wing failure and consequent loss of control. This extension of the comment period is necessary to assure that all interested persons have ample opportunity to present their views on the proposed requirements of the NPRM.

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Model 757 Airplanes, and Model 767-200, 767-300, and 767-300F Series Airplanes
Document Number: 2011-9524
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-04-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede an existing airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to the products listed above. The existing AD currently requires revising the Limitations section of the airplane flight manual (AFM) to advise the flight crew of procedures to follow to ensure that a fuel filter impending bypass condition due to gross fuel contamination is detected in a timely manner. Since we issued that AD, a new design change has been developed that will correct an error in the operating program software (OPS) of the engine indication and crew alerting system (EICAS). This proposed AD would require installing new OPS (Version 7) of the EICAS in the EICAS computers. This proposed AD would also require various concurrent actions, depending on the airplane configuration, including installing a certain EICAS OPS version, making wiring changes, replacing the audio accessory unit, replacing certain handsets and EICAS computers, changing EICAS computer connector keying, and loading Operational Program Configuration (OPC) software. This proposed AD also retains the existing AD provision that relieves certain airplanes (those equipped with certain EICAS OPS versions) from the proposed requirements. Accomplishment of the new proposed actions would terminate the requirements of the existing AD. We are proposing this AD to prevent malfunction and thrust loss on both engines, which could result in a forced off-airport landing.

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Model 737 Airplanes
Document Number: 2011-9410
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-04-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are revising an earlier proposed airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Model 737 airplanes. The original NPRM would have required repetitive inspections, lubrications, and repetitive repairs/ overhauls of the ball nut and ballscrew and attachment (Gimbal) fittings for the trim actuator of the horizontal stabilizer; various installation(s); and corrective actions if necessary; as applicable. The original NPRM resulted from a report of extensive corrosion of a ballscrew used in the drive mechanism of the horizontal stabilizer trim actuator (HSTA). This action revises the original NPRM by adding airplanes to the applicability. We are proposing this supplemental NPRM to prevent an undetected failure of the primary load path for the ballscrew in the drive mechanism of the HSTA and subsequent wear and failure of the secondary load path, which could lead to loss of control of the horizontal stabilizer and consequent loss of control of the airplane.
