Date: 2011-11-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation

Airworthiness Directives; MD Helicopters, Inc. Model MD900 Helicopters
Document Number: 2011-28897
Type: Rule
Date: 2011-11-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This amendment supersedes an existing airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to MD Helicopters, Inc. (MDHI) Model MD900 helicopters. That AD currently requires turning ON both Vertical Stabilizer Control System (VSCS) switches and turning OFF the autopilot (AP/SAS) switch; pulling certain AP/SAS circuit breakers; installing a placard near the AP/SAS master switch; installing an airspeed limitation placard on the instrument panel; and making changes to the Rotorcraft Flight Manual (RFM). This amendment retains those requirements and provides an option of replacing each affected tube adapter with a newly-designed tube adapter, which provides terminating action for the unsafe condition. This amendment is prompted by the manufacturer introducing an improved, newly-designed tube adapter. The actions specified by this AD are intended to prevent loss of yaw control and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.
Airworthiness Directives; Cessna Aircraft Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2011-28861
Type: Rule
Date: 2011-11-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is correcting an airworthiness directive (AD) that published in the Federal Register. That AD applies to certain Cessna Aircraft Company (Cessna) Models 150F, 150G, 150H, 150J, 150K, 150L, 150M, A150K, A150L, A150M, F150F, F150G, F150H, F150J, F150K, F150L, F150M, FA150K, FA150L, FRA150L, FA150M, FRA150M, 152, A152, F152, and FA152 airplanes. There is an error in the compliance instructions. This document corrects that error. In all other respects, the original document remains the same.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes
Document Number: 2011-28859
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-11-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes. 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; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes
Document Number: 2011-28857
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-11-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes Model 737-600, -700, -700C, -800, -900, and -900ER Series Airplanes
Document Number: 2011-28856
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-11-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Airplanes Model 737-600, -700, -700C, -800, -900, and -900ER series airplanes. This proposed AD would require checking the escape slide girt for serviceability and replacement if necessary, modifying the cable routing provision, replacing the regulator padding, modifying the aspirator orientation, and modifying the valise. This proposed AD also would, for certain airplanes, require modifying or replacing the Vespel piston, modifying the pilot valve regulator, installing a new firing cable and safety pin, and modifying the slide valise. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of escape slides failing to deploy from the forward and aft right-hand doors during scheduled maintenance slide deployments, which could result in the slide being unusable during an emergency evacuation and increased likelihood of injury to passengers or crewmembers due to the difficulty in evacuating the aircraft.

Clarification of Policy Regarding Designated Aircraft Dispatcher Examiners
Document Number: 2011-28516
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-11-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This document announces the availability of a revised section of FAA Order 8900.1, regarding the qualification, authority, and limitations of Designated Aircraft Dispatcher Examiners (DADEs). This section provides guidance to FAA employees on the responsibilities, qualifications, and oversight of DADEs under 14 CFR part 183. Under this proposed revision, the FAA is clarifying its policy regarding the qualifications, privileges, and limitations of these designees, in addition to establishing guidelines for DADEs when testing applicants for an Aircraft Dispatcher Certificate. Upon review of the comments and any necessary revision, this Order would cancel and replace FAA Order 8900.1, Volume 5, Chapter 5, Section 10, and Volume 13, Chapter 3, Sections 1-4, issued September 13, 2007.
