Notice of Availability of a Final Environmental Assessment (Final EA) and a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI)/Record of Decision (ROD) for the Proposed Construction and Operation of a Replacement Aerial Tramway, South Franklin Mountain, El Paso, Texas
Document Number: 2013-31543
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-01-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is issuing this notice to advise the public that the FAA has prepared, and approved on November 6, 2013, a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI)/Record of Decision (ROD) based on the Final Environmental Assessment (Final EA) for the Proposed Construction and Operation of a Replacement Aerial Tramway (ATRAM), South Franklin Mountain, El Paso, Texas. The FAA prepared the Final EA in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act and the FAA's regulations and guidelines for environmental documents and the Final EA was signed on September 30, 2013. Copies of the Final EA and/or FONSI/ROD are available by contacting Ms. Virginia Marcks through the contact information provided below.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2013-31527
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-01-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus Model A318, A319, A320, and A321 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by a determination that certain maintenance activities, such as repairs or the accumulation of paint layers, might cause the weight of an elevator to exceed the certified limits. This AD requires checking the weight of certain elevators, and corrective action if necessary; and re-identifying the elevators. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct elevators that exceed the certified weight limits, which could result in reduced control of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation (Sikorsky) Helicopters
Document Number: 2013-31525
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-01-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Sikorsky Model S-70, S-70A, S-70C, S-70C (M), and S-70C (M1) helicopters with General Electric (GE) T700-GE-401C or T700-GE-701C engines installed. This AD requires establishing new fatigue life limits for certain GE engine gas generator turbine (GGT) rotor parts. This AD was prompted by a reevaluation of the method for determining the life limit for certain GE engine GGT rotor parts and the determination that these life limits should be based on low cycle fatigue (LCF) events instead of hours time-in-service (TIS). The actions are intended to prevent fatigue failure of a GGT rotor part, engine failure, and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.
Airworthiness Directives; Embraer S.A. Airplanes
Document Number: 2013-31450
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-01-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Embraer S.A. Model ERJ 170 and ERJ 190 airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of failures of the emergency slide on the forward passenger door, which prevented the door from opening. This AD requires repetitive re-packing of certain forward door escape slides. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the emergency slide, which can prevent the forward passenger door from opening, and which could result in impeded emergency evacuation and possible subsequent injury to passengers and flightcrew.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2013-31313
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-01-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus Model A318, A319, A320, and A321 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of certain sliding windows that were difficult to operate after landing. This AD requires a detailed inspection to identify part numbers of sliding windows and sliding window seals, and modification if necessary. This AD also includes an optional replacement. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct incorrect seals, which could lead to the functional loss of the sliding window as an exit, possibly preventing the flightcrew from safely evacuating the airplane during an emergency.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2013-31312
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-01-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2009-14-02 for certain The Boeing Company Model 747-100, 747-100B, 747-100B SUD, 747- 200B, 747-200C, 747-200F, 747-300, 747-400, 747-400D, 747-400F, 747SR, and 747SP series airplanes. AD 2009-14-02 required repetitive inspections for wear damage and cracks of the fuselage skin in the interface area of the vertical stabilizer seal and fuselage skin, a detailed inspection for wear damage and cracks of the surface of any skin repair doubler in the area, and corrective actions if necessary. For airplanes on which the fuselage skin has been blended to remove wear damage, AD 2009-14-02 also required repetitive external detailed inspections or high frequency eddy current inspections for cracks of the blended area of the fuselage skin, and corrective actions if necessary. This new AD reduces the repetitive inspection interval, changes certain corrective actions, and expands the applicability. This AD was prompted by a report of wear through the fuselage skin that occurred sooner than the previous repetitive inspection interval. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct wear damage and cracks of the fuselage skin in the interface area of the vertical stabilizer seal and fuselage skin in sections 46 and 48, which could cause in-flight depressurization of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; the Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2013-31307
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-01-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 737-600, -700, -700C, -800, and -900 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of arcing and smoke at the left number 2 window in the flight deck. This AD requires inspecting the orientation of both sides of the coil cord connector keyways of the number 2 windows on the flight deck; re-clocking the connector keyways, if necessary; and replacing the coil cord assemblies on both number 2 windows on the flight deck. We are issuing this AD to prevent arcing, smoke, and fire in the flight deck, which could lead to injuries to or incapacitation of the flightcrew.
