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. The respondents supply information through the AC 8050-135 to the FAA Civil Aviation Registry's Aircraft Registration Branch in order to obtain an authorization code for access to the International Registry.
Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; Clearance of Renewed Approval of Information Collection: Neighborhood Environmental Survey
Document Number: 2014-13686
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-06-12
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 undertake an information collection. The purpose of this research is to conduct a nation-wide survey to update the scientific evidence of the relationship between aircraft noise exposure and its effects on communities around airports.
Special Conditions: Airbus Model A350-900 Series Airplane; Ground Pivoting Loads
Document Number: 2014-13667
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-06-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These special conditions are issued for Airbus Model A350-900 Series airplanes. These airplanes will have a novel or unusual design feature(s) associated with a braking system that affects the airplane's pivoting behavior. The applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for this design feature. These special conditions contain the additional safety standards that the Administrator considers necessary to establish a level of safety equivalent to that established by the existing airworthiness standards.
Special Conditions: Airbus Model A350-900 Series, Limit Pilot Force Because of Side Stick Controller
Document Number: 2014-13666
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-06-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These special conditions are issued for Airbus Model A350-900 series airplanes. These airplanes will have a novel or unusual design feature associated with side stick controllers which require limited pilot force because they are operated by only one hand. The applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for this design feature. These special conditions contain the additional safety standards that the Administrator considers necessary to establish a level of safety equivalent to that established by the existing airworthiness standards.
Special Conditions: Airbus Model A350-900 Series Airplane; Composite Fuselage In-Flight Fire/Flammability Resistance
Document Number: 2014-13665
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-06-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These special conditions are issued for Airbus Model A350-900 series airplanes. These airplanes will have a novel or unusual design feature associated with the in-flight fire and flammability resistance of the composite fuselage. Experience has shown that eliminating fire propagation on the surface of interior and insulating materials enhances survivability since the threats from an in-flight fire (e.g., toxic gas emission and smoke obscuration) are typically by-products of a propagating fire. The Airbus Model A350-900 series airplanes must provide protection against an in-flight fire propagating along the surface of the fuselage. Special conditions are needed to address this design feature. The applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for this design feature. These special conditions contain the additional safety standards that the Administrator considers necessary to establish a level of safety equivalent to that established by the existing airworthiness standards.
Special Conditions: Boeing Model 787-9, Side-Facing Seats
Document Number: 2014-13664
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-06-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These special conditions are issued for the Boeing Model 787-9 airplane. This airplane has a novel or unusual design feature associated with side-facing seats. The applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for occupants of seats installed at an angle of 49 degrees to the centerline of the airplane, nor for inflatable restraint systems. These special conditions contain the additional safety standards that the Administrator considers necessary to establish a level of safety equivalent to that established by the existing airworthiness standards.
Special Conditions: Gulfstream Model GVI Airplanes; Airbag-Equipped Shoulder Belt
Document Number: 2014-13663
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-06-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These special conditions are issued for the Gulfstream Model GVI airplane. This airplane, as modified by Gulfstream, will have a novel or unusual design feature associated with airbag-equipped shoulder belts. The applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for this design feature. These special conditions contain the additional safety standards that the Administrator considers necessary to establish a level of safety equivalent to that established by the existing airworthiness standards.
Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce Deutschland Ltd & Co KG Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2014-13532
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-06-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Rolls-Royce Deutschland Ltd & Co KG (RRD) BR700-725A1-12 turbofan engines. This AD requires removal of affected fuel metering units (FMUs) on RRD BR700-725A1-12 engines. This AD was prompted by reports of wear on the receptors of the double-ended unions in the FMU housing on BR700-725A1-12 engines causing fuel leakage. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the FMU, which could lead to damage to one or more engines and damage to the airplane.
