Airworthiness Directives; Agusta S.p.A. Model AB412 Helicopters
Document Number: 2011-11797
Type: Rule
Date: 2011-05-16
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Agusta S.p.A. (Agusta) Model AB412 helicopters. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by the aviation authority of Italy to identify and correct an unsafe condition related to the rescue hoist hook installed on this model helicopter. The aviation authority of Italy, with which we have a bilateral agreement, states in the MCAI that a missing lock pin may cause the loss of the hoist hook and any load. The absence of the lock pin constitutes an unsafe condition, and this AD is intended to detect the presence of an identification plate marked ``BT 412-124,'' which indicates that the hook assembly has the lock pin installed to prevent the loss of a rescue hoist hook and its load.
Standard Instrument Approach Procedures, and Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures; Miscellaneous Amendments
Document Number: 2011-11374
Type: Rule
Date: 2011-05-16
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This 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.
