Final Written Re-Evaluation for Environmental Impact Statement: Sikorsky Memorial Airport, Stratford, CT
Document Number: 2011-18196
Type: Notice
Date: 2011-07-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is issuing this notice to advise the public that a Writetn Re-Evaluation of a Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) has been completed for Sikorsky Memorial Airport in Stratford, Connecticut.
Airworthiness Directives; Turbomeca Arriel 1 Series Turboshaft Engines
Document Number: 2011-18171
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-07-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to revise an existing airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to the products listed above. The existing AD currently requires removing from service certain gas generator second stage turbine discs, part number (P/N) 0 292 25 040 0, that are not marked with ``CFR'' before the discs exceed 2,500 cycles-in-service (CIS) since-new or within 20 CIS from the effective date of the AD, whichever occurs later. That AD also requires removing from service certain gas generator second stage turbine discs, P/N 0 292 25 040 0, that are marked with ``CFR'' before the discs exceed 3,500 CIS since-new. Since we issued that AD, Turbomeca has restored all or part of the life limits of the affected discs, and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) issued AD 2010-0101R2, dated March 24, 2011 to do the same. This proposed AD would still prevent disc failure but extends the life limits of the affected discs. We are proposing this AD to prevent failure of the gas generator second stage turbine disc which could result in the release of high energy debris and damage to the helicopter.
Airworthiness Directives; Lycoming Engines Model TIO 540-A Series Reciprocating Engines
Document Number: 2011-18170
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-07-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to rescind an airworthiness directive (AD) for Lycoming Engines model TIO 540-A series reciprocating engines. The existing AD, AD 71-13-01 (Amendment 39-1231) resulted from a report of a failed fuel injector tube assembly. Since we issued AD 71-13-01, we became aware that Lycoming Engines no longer supports Service Bulletin (SB) No. 335A, which was incorporated by reference in AD 71-13-01. The intent of the requirements of that SB is now in Lycoming Engines Mandatory SB No. 342F. This proposal to rescind AD 71-13-01 allows the public the opportunity to comment on the FAA's determination of the duplication of requirements in another AD, before we rescind the engine-level AD.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Model 767-200, -300, and -400ER Series Airplanes
Document Number: 2011-18136
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-07-19
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 replacing the separation link assembly on the applicable entry and service doors with an improved separation link assembly, and doing related investigative and corrective actions if necessary. Since we issued that AD, we have received a report that an additional airplane is subject to the unsafe condition. This proposed AD would add that airplane to the applicability and also remove certain other airplanes from the applicability. We are proposing this AD to prevent failure of an entry or service door to open fully in the event of an emergency evacuation, which could impede exit from the airplane. This condition could result in injury to passengers or crewmembers.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A330-201, -202, -203, -223, -243, -301, -302, -303, -321, -322, -323, -341, -342, and -343 Airplanes; and Model A340-200 and -300 Series Airplanes
Document Number: 2011-18131
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-07-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
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:
Establishment of Class E Airspace; Brunswick, ME
Document Number: 2011-17978
