Airworthiness Directives; Gulfstream Aerospace LP (Type Certificate Previously Held by Israel Aircraft Industries, Ltd.) Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-01015
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-01-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2013-03- 23, for all Gulfstream Aerospace LP (Type Certificate previously held by Israel Aircraft Industries, Ltd.) Model Gulfstream G150 airplanes. AD 2013-03-23 currently requires revising the airplane flight manual (AFM) to include procedures to advise the flightcrew of certain runway slope and anti-ice corrections and take-off distance values. Since we issued AD 2013-03-23, a revision to the AFM has been issued, which modifies runway slope and anti-ice corrections to both V1 and take-off distance values. This proposed AD would require revising the Performance section of the AFM, which includes the revised procedures. We are proposing this AD to prevent the use of published, non- conservative data, which could result in the inability to meet the required take-off performance, with a consequent hazard to safe operation during performance-limited take-off operations.
Airworthiness Directives; M7 Aerospace LLC Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-01011
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-01-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain M7 Aerospace LLC Models SA26-T, SA26-AT, SA226-AT, SA226-T, SA226-T(B), SA226-TC, SA227-AC (C-26A), SA227-AT, SA227-TT, SA227-BC (C-26A), SA227-CC, and SA227-DC (C-26B) airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of jamming of the aileron control cable chain in the pilot and copilot control columns due to inadequate lubrication and maintenance of the chain. This proposed AD would require repetitively replacing and lubricating the aileron chain, sprocket, and bearings in the control columns. We are proposing this AD to correct the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airplanes Originally Manufactured by Lockheed for the Military as P-3A and P3A Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-01010
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-01-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain airplanes, originally manufactured by Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company for the military as P-3A or P3A airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a determination that the existing maintenance program must be revised to address fatigue cracking of the airplane. This proposed AD would require revising the maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate certain limitations. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct fatigue cracking, which could result in reduced structural integrity of the airplane.

Notice of Intent To Release Airport Property for Non-Aeronautical Use; Hyannis, Massachusetts
Document Number: 2014-00948
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-01-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is considering a proposal to change 53.55 acres of airport land from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use and to authorize the lease of the land for non- aeronautical purposes at the Barnstable Municipal Airport-Boardman/ Polando Field, Hyannis, Massachusetts. The land would be leased to the Cape and Vineyard Electrical Company (CVEC), Massachusetts, to permit installation of solar photovoltaic (PV) arrays for the collection of energy. The lease will generate additional airport revenue. In accordance with section 47107(h) of Title 49, United States Code the FAA invites public comment on this notice.
Notice of Noise Exposure Map; Bradley International Airport, Windsor Locks, Connecticut
Document Number: 2014-00942
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-01-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces its determination that the noise exposure maps for Bradley International Airport, Windsor Locks, Connecticut, as submitted by the Connecticut Airport Authority under the provisions of Title I of the Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act of 1979 (Pub. L. 96-193) and 14 CFR Part 150, are in compliance with applicable requirements.
Modification of the Dallas/Fort Worth Class B Airspace Area; TX
Document Number: 2014-00941
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-01-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action modifies the Dallas/Fort Worth, TX, Class B airspace area to ensure containment of large turbine-powered aircraft flying instrument procedures to and from the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) and Dallas Love Field Airport (DAL) within Class B airspace. The FAA is taking this action to further support its national airspace redesign goal of optimizing terminal and en route airspace areas to enhance safety, improve the flow of air traffic, and reduce the potential for near midair collision in the DFW terminal area.
Amendment to Class B Airspace; Detroit, MI
Document Number: 2014-00622
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-01-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action modifies the Detroit, MI, Class B airspace area to contain aircraft conducting published instrument procedures at Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW), Detroit, MI, within Class B airspace. The FAA is taking this action to support containment of aircraft operations using the three existing dual Simultaneous Independent Instrument Landing System (SIILS) configurations, runways 22R/21L, runways 4L/3R and runways 27L/27R, as well as support containment of aircraft operations for triple SIILS operations to runways 4L/4R/3R and runways 21L/22L/22R. This action will enhance safety, improve the flow of air traffic, and reduce the potential for midair collisions in the DTW terminal area, while accommodating the concerns of all airspace users. Furthermore, this effort supports the FAA's national airspace redesign goal of optimizing terminal and enroute airspace areas to reduce aircraft delays and improve system capacity.
Airworthiness Directives; Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation (Sikorsky) Helicopters
Document Number: 2013-31459
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-01-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Sikorsky Model S-70, S-70A, and S-70C helicopters. This AD establishes a new life limit based on a prorated formula for certain identified components (parts) installed on Model S-70, S-70A, and S-70C helicopters after being previously installed on certain military model helicopters. This AD was prompted by the discovery that certain parts have been interchanged between military helicopter models with different life limits and the possibility that these same parts can be interchanged with civilian models with different life limits. The actions are intended to establish a pro-rated in service life limit for each identified part to prevent fatigue failure of a part and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.
