Airworthiness Directives; Cessna Aircraft Company (Cessna) Models 337, 337A (USAF 02B), 337B, 337C, 337D, 337E, T337E, 337F, T337F, 337G, T337G, M337B, F 337E, FT337E, F 337F, FT337F, F 337G, and FT337GP Airplanes
Document Number: 2011-10818
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-05-04
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 inspecting the wings for internal and external damage, repairing any damage, reinforcing the wings, installing operational limitation placards in the cockpit, and adding limitations to the airplane flight manual supplement. This proposed AD was prompted by a review of installed Flint Aero, Inc. wing tip auxiliary fuel tanks, Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) SA5090NM. We are issuing this proposed AD to detect and correct damage in the wings and to prevent overload failure of the wing due to the installation of the STC. Damage in the wing or overload failure of the wing could result in structural failure of the wing, which could result in loss of control.

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. For Model A310 and A300-600 series airplanes, the MCAI describes the unsafe condition as:
Public Notice for Waiver of Aeronautical Land-Use Assurance; Richard Downing Airport, Coshocton, OH
Document Number: 2011-10812
Type: Notice
Date: 2011-05-04
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 the airport property. The proposal consists of the sale of vacant, unimproved land owned by the Coshocton County Regional Airport Authority. Parcels LR3, LR4, LR5, LR6, and LR7 total approximately 9.714 acres. The land was acquired under grants 5-39-0028-01, 5-39-0028-02, and 3-39-0028-0183. There are no impacts to the airport by allowing the airport to dispose of the property. The proposed land for release is vacant, not required for future development, safety, or compatible land 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 proceeds from the disposal 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.
Special Conditions: Gulfstream Aerospace LP (GALP) Model G250 Airplane, Dynamic Test Requirements for Side-Facing, Single-Occupant Seats
Document Number: 2011-10755
Type: Rule
Date: 2011-05-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These special conditions are issued for the Gulfstream Aerospace LP (GALP) model G250 airplane. This airplane will have a novel or unusual design feature associated with dynamic test requirements for side-facing, single-occupant 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.
Notice of Intent To Rule on Request To Release Airport Property at Hammond Northshore Regional Airport, Hammond, LA
Document Number: 2011-10637
Type: Notice
Date: 2011-05-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to rule and invites public comment on the release of land at the Hammond Northshore Regional Airport, Hammond, Louisiana. The property consists of vacant land located on the corner of Industrial Park Road and Shelton Road near the Hammond Northshore Regional Airport just outside the city limits of Hammond, Louisiana. The land in question was acquired by the city of Hammond, Louisiana on September 8, 1948, through provisions of the Federal Property and Administration Service Act of 1949 and the Surplus Property Act of 1944. As airport owner, the city of Hammond has requested to release a parcel in an effort to obtain a control tower at the Hammond Northshore Regional Airport. As part of this release, this parcel will change from aeronautical to non-aeronautical use and be limited to some type of commercial or industrial use under the provisions of Section 125 of the Wendell H. Ford Aviation Investment Reform Act for the 215t Century (AIR 21).
Standard Instrument Approach Procedures, and Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures; Miscellaneous Amendments
Document Number: 2011-10021
Type: Rule
Date: 2011-05-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This rule establishes, amends, suspends, or revokes Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) and associated Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures for operations at certain airports. These regulatory actions are needed because of the adoption of new or revised criteria, or because of changes occurring in the National Airspace System, such as the commissioning of new navigational facilities, adding new obstacles, or changing air traffic requirements. These changes are designed to provide safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace and to promote safe flight operations under instrument flight rules at the affected airports.
