Federal Aviation Administration August 14, 2014 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; Dassault Aviation Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-19249
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-08-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Dassault Aviation Model FALCON 2000 and FALCON 2000EX airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a design review, which revealed that the forward servicing compartment (FSC) is configured with tie-down points. This proposed AD would require inspecting the FSC for installed tie-down points, and removing those tie-down points. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct installed tie-down points, which could lead to inadvertent use of the FSC as a cargo compartment, which could result in damage to the structure of the airplane or potential risk of fire.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-19248
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-08-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 767-200, -300, and -400ER series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of the engine indication and crew alerting system (EICAS) display system malfunctioning during flight. This proposed AD would require an inspection for plastic couplings, corrective actions if necessary, and installation of new spray shrouds. We are proposing this AD to prevent an uncontrolled water leak from a defective potable water system coupling, which could cause the main equipment center (MEC) line replaceable units (LRUs) to become wet, resulting in an electrical short and potential loss of several functions essential for safe flight.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-19244
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-08-14
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 was prompted by issuance of revised certification maintenance requirements (CMR) for the horizontal stabilizer trim actuator (HSTA). This proposed AD would require revising the maintenance or inspection program. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct premature wear and cracking of the HSTAs, which could result in reduced structural integrity and reduced control of the airplane due to the failure of system components.
Special Conditions: Robinson Model R44 and R44 II Helicopters, Installation of HeliSAS Autopilot and Stabilization Augmentation System (AP/SAS)
Document Number: 2014-19211
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-08-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These special conditions are issued for the modification of the Robinson Helicopter Company Model R44 and R44 II helicopters. These model helicopters will have a novel or unusual design feature after installation of the HeliSAS helicopter autopilot/stabilization augmentation system (AP/SAS) that has potential failure conditions with more severe adverse consequences than those envisioned by the existing applicable airworthiness regulations. These special conditions contain the added safety standards the Administrator considers necessary to ensure the failures and their effects are sufficiently analyzed and contained.
Amendment of Air Traffic Service (ATS) Routes in the Vicinity of Grand Rapids, MI
Document Number: 2014-19208
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-08-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action amends the legal descriptions of Jet Route J-34 and VHF omnidirectional range (VOR) Federal airways V-274, V-285, and V-510, in the vicinity of Grand Rapids, MI. The FAA is taking this action because the name of the Grand Rapids, MI, VOR/Distance Measure Equipment (VOR/DME) facility, which is included in the descriptions of the above routes, is being changed to the Victory VOR/DME.
Modification and Establishment of Air Traffic Service (ATS) Routes in the Vicinity of Huntingburg, IN
Document Number: 2014-19204
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-08-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action modifies VOR Federal airway V-243 and establishes area navigation (RNAV) route T-325 in the vicinity of Huntingburg, IN. The FAA is taking this action due to the scheduled decommissioning of the Huntingburg, IN (HNB), VHF Omnidirectional Range (VOR)/Distance Measuring Equipment (DME) facility, which provides navigation guidance for a portion of V-243.
Approval of Noise Compatibility Program; Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, Seattle, Washington
Document Number: 2014-19197
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-08-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced its findings on the noise compatibility program submitted by the Seattle- Tacoma International Airport under the provisions of 49 U.S.C. (the Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act, hereinafter referred to as ``the Act'') and 14 CFR Part 150 on May 29, 2014. These findings were made in recognition of the description of Federal and nonfederal responsibilities in Senate Report No. 96-52 (1980). On December 13, 2013, the FAA determined that the noise exposure maps submitted by the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport under Part 150 were in compliance with applicable requirements. On May 29, 2014, the FAA approved the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport Noise Compatibility Program in a Record of Approval (ROA), which was published in the Federal Register on June 12, 2014. Subsequent to the Federal Register publication, FAA recognized that a measure was inadvertently omitted from the ROA. This measure has been added via an errata sheet. Measure M-14Sound insulate eligible owner- occupied multi-family (condominiums) within the modified noise remedy boundary was included in the Noise Compatibility Program and vetted with the public through the Part 150 process. As stated in the errata sheet, FAA has approved this measure.
Notice of Intent To Rule on Request To Release Airport Property at Pocahontas Municipal Aiport, Pocahontas, Arkansas
Document Number: 2014-19195
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-08-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to rule and invites public comment on the release of land at Pocahonas Municipal Airport under the provisions of Section 125 of the Wendell H. Ford Aviation Investment Reform Act for the 21st Century (AIR 21).
Amendment and Revocation of Jet Routes; Northeast United States
Document Number: 2014-19043
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-08-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action modifies jet routes J-64 and J-80, and removes jet route J-77, in the northeastern United States. The FAA is taking this action to remove segments that are receiving minimal to no usage due to other more efficient routes in the area. This action eliminates the unneeded route segments, reduces aeronautical chart clutter and improves chart readability.
