Federal Aviation Administration June 2, 2014 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Helicopters (Previously Eurocopter France) (Airbus Helicopters) Helicopters
Document Number: 2014-12740
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-06-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Airbus Helicopters Model EC225LP, AS332C, AS332L, AS332L1, and AS332L2 helicopters. This proposed AD would require inspecting each TECALEMIT flexible hydraulic hose (hose) installed in the main gearbox (MGB) compartment and replacing the hose if a crack, cut, or other damage exists. This proposed AD is prompted by reports about the loss of in- flight hydraulic pressure on Eurocopter helicopters. The proposed actions are intended to prevent loss of the hydraulic system and consequently, loss of helicopter control.
Airworthiness Directives; Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation (Sikorsky) Helicopters
Document Number: 2014-12738
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-06-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Sikorsky Model S-76A, S-76B, and S-76C helicopters with a main gearbox (MGB) installed that has undergone certain repairs. This proposed AD would require inspecting the MGB lower housing jet bores for leaks, paint or caulk blistering, and liner protrusion. This proposed AD is prompted by several reports of MGB low oil pressure warnings which were determined to be the result of unsecured jet bore liners that had protruded. The proposed actions are intended to prevent failure of the MGB from loss of oil, which could result in subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.
Airworthiness Directives; Various Restricted Category Helicopters
Document Number: 2014-12737
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-06-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede airworthiness directive (AD) 2012-14- 11 for Arrow Falcon Exporters, Inc. (AFE), Rotorcraft Development Corporation (RDC), and San Joaquin Helicopters (SJH) Model OH-58A, OH- 58A+, and OH-58C helicopters. AD 2012-14-11 currently requires inspecting the main rotor mast (mast) for a crack. Since we issued AD 2012-14-11, we have determined that the area of the mast requiring inspection should be expanded and repetitive inspections of the mast should be accomplished. This proposed AD would expand the area of the mast that requires an inspection for a crack and would require repetitive inspections of the mast. The proposed actions are intended to prevent failure of the mast and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.
Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Pine Knot, KY
Document Number: 2014-12689
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-06-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to establish Class E airspace at Pine Knot, KY, to accommodate a new Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) Standard Instrument Approach Procedure (SIAP) serving McCreary County Airport. This action would enhance the safety and airspace management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations within the National Airspace System.
