Federal Aviation Administration January 5, 2015 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; Beechcraft Corporation Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-30490
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-01-05
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Beechcraft Corporation Model G58 airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of fuel leaks due to fuel cells that did not properly fit in Model G58 airplanes. This AD requires inspecting for and replacing, as necessary, certain fuel cells. This AD also requires inspecting and replacing parts, as necessary, of the left and right fuel system installations and correcting torques on fuel system fittings; and prohibits future installations of certain fuel cells. We are issuing this AD to correct the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; GROB-WERKE Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-30489
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-01-05
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain GROB-WERKE Models G115EG and G120A airplanes. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as a defective starter solenoid. We are issuing this AD to require actions to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Saab AB, Saab Aerosystems Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-30428
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-01-05
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Saab AB, Saab Aerosystems Model 340B airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report that the elevator position quoted in an aircraft maintenance manual is incorrect and a report that the trunnion at the lower part of the control column was installed incorrectly. This AD requires an inspection of the stick pusher rigging and an inspection of the installation of the trunnion and the stick pusher rigging, and corrective actions if necessary. We are issuing this AD to correct the rigging of the elevator position of the stick pusher to reduce the probability of a negative effect on the handling quality during stall, which could result in reduced controllability of the airplane.
