Airworthiness Directives; Learjet Inc. Model 45 Airplanes
Document Number: 2011-17265
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-07-08
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 revising the maintenance program to incorporate life limits for the main landing gear (MLG) actuator end cap. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of the potential for fatigue cracking of the end cap of the MLG prior to the published life limitation. We are proposing this AD to prevent fatigue cracking of the end cap of the MLG, which could result in the failure of the MLG actuator upon landing, and failure of the MLG to extend or retract during flight.

Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Tonopah, NV
Document Number: 2011-17200
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-07-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to modify Class E airspace at Tonopah Airport, Tonopah, NV.

Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-07-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation

Additional controlled airspace is necessary to facilitate vectoring of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) traffic from Grand Junction Regional Airport to en route. The FAA is proposing this action to enhance the safety and management of aircraft operations at Grand Junction Regional Airport. This action also would amend Class D and Class E airspace to update the airport name from Grand Junction, Walker Field.

Document Number: 2011-16863
Type: Rule
Date: 2011-07-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is making a minor technical change to a final rule published in the Federal Register on July 27, 2004. This final rule established new requirements for the certification, operation, and maintenance of light-sport aircraft under several regulations. In the final rule, the FAA inadvertently did not change an affected regulatory reference in one section. The FAA is issuing this technical amendment to correct that oversight.

Airworthiness Directives; Schweizer Aircraft Corporation (Schweizer) Model 269A, A-1, B, C, C-1, and TH-55 Series Helicopters
Document Number: 2011-16571
Type: Rule
Date: 2011-07-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding an existing emergency airworthiness directive (EAD) for the specified Schweizer model helicopters that was previously sent to all known U.S. owners and operators. That EAD currently requires removing each locknut and verifying sufficient drag torque and retorquing, or if the locknut does not have sufficient drag torque, replacing the locknut with an airworthy locknut. This AD retains the existing EAD requirements but also requires within a specified time, modifying the expandable bolts and installing a cotter pin. This AD is prompted by a locknut working loose from a bolt attaching the tailboom support strut at the aft cluster fitting because the locknut installed on the expandable bolt did not have the proper threads. We are issuing this AD to modify each expandable bolt to allow adding a cotter pin to prevent the strut and driveshaft separating from the helicopter and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.

Document Number: 2011-15990
Type: Rule
Date: 2011-07-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This AD requires repetitive inspections for cracking of the left and right upper center skin panels of the horizontal stabilizer, and corrective action if necessary. This AD was prompted by a report of a crack found in the upper center skin panel at the aft inboard corner of a right horizontal stabilizer. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct cracks in the horizontal stabilizer upper center skin panel. Uncorrected cracks might ultimately lead to the loss of overall structural integrity of the horizontal stabilizer.
