Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; Clearance of Renewed Approval of Information Collection: Financial Responsibility for Licensed Launch Activities
Document Number: 2011-21672
Type: Notice
Date: 2011-08-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FAA invites public comments about our intention to request the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to renew an information collection. Information is used to determine if licensees have complied with financial responsibility requirements (including maximum probable loss determination) as set forth in FAA regulations.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Model 757-200, -200PF, and -200CB Series Airplanes
Document Number: 2011-21668
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-08-24
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 repetitive inspections of the shim installation between the engine strut vertical flange and bulkhead, and repair if necessary. The existing AD also requires, for certain airplanes, an inspection for cracking of the four critical fastener holes in the horizontal flange, and repair if necessary. Additionally, the existing AD requires that the existing action be performed on airplanes without conclusive records of previous inspections. Since we issued that AD, we have received reports of loose fasteners and cracks at the joint common to the aft torque bulkhead and strut-to-diagonal brace fitting and one report of such damage occurring less than 3,000 flight cycles after the last inspection. This proposed AD would reduce the repetitive inspection interval, and add repetitive detailed inspections for cracking of the bulkhead, and repair if necessary. This proposed AD would also provide an option, for certain airplanes, to extend the repetitive intervals by also doing repetitive ultrasonic inspections for cracking of the bulkhead, and repair if necessary. This proposed AD would also add an option for the high frequency eddy current inspection for cracking of the critical fastener holes, and repair if necessary. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct cracks, loose and broken bolts, and shim migration in the joint between the aft torque bulkhead and the strut-to-diagonal brace fitting, which could result in damage to the strut and consequent separation of the strut and engine from the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Model 767-200, -300, and -300F Series Airplanes
Document Number: 2011-21667
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-08-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain model 767-200, -300, and -300F series airplanes. This proposed AD would require doing certain wiring changes, installing a new relay and necessary wiring in the cabin air conditioning and temperature control system (CACTCS), and performing an operational test of the cooling pack fire suppression system. This AD results from reports of loss of avionics cooling due to an unserviceable relay installed on a panel as part of the CACTCS. We are proposing this AD to prevent loss of electrical equipment bay cooling and the overheating of flight deck instruments, which would result in the eventual loss of primary flight displays, an unusually high pilot workload, and depressurization of the cabin.

Proposed Amendment to Class B Airspace; Salt Lake City, UT
Document Number: 2011-21293
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-08-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to modify Salt Lake City, UT, Class B airspace to contain aircraft conducting Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) instrument approach procedures to Salt Lake City International Airport (SCL), Salt Lake City, UT. The FAA is taking this action to improve the flow of air traffic, enhance safety, and reduce the potential for midair collision, while accommodating the concerns of airspace users. Further, this effort supports the FAA's national airspace redesign goal of optimizing terminal and en route airspace to reduce aircraft delays and improve system capacity.
