Airworthiness Directives; Diamond Aircraft Industries Powered Sailplanes
Document Number: 2011-20038
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-08-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Diamond Aircraft Industries Model H-36 ``DIMONA'' powered sailplanes. 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:
Airworthiness Directives; Costruzioni Aeronautiche Tecnam srl Model P2006T Airplanes
Document Number: 2011-20037

Airworthiness Directives; Lockheed Martin Corporation/Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company Model L-1011 Series Airplanes
Document Number: 2011-19968
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-08-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede an existing airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to Model L-1011-385-1, L-1011-385-1-14, and L-1011- 385-1-15 airplanes. The existing AD currently requires implementation of a Supplemental Inspection Document (SID) program of structural inspections to detect fatigue cracking, and repair, if necessary, to ensure continued airworthiness of these airplanes as they approach the manufacturer's original fatigue design life goal. Since we issued that AD, an evaluation by the manufacturer of usage and flight data provided additional information about certain Structurally Significant Details (SSDs) where fatigue damage is likely to occur. This proposed AD would add airplanes to the applicability, change certain inspection thresholds, add three new SSDs, and remove an SSD that has been addressed by a different AD. We are proposing this AD to prevent fatigue cracking that could compromise the structural integrity of these airplanes.
Standard Instrument Approach Procedures, and Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures; Miscellaneous Amendments
Document Number: 2011-19507
Type: Rule
Date: 2011-08-08
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.
