Notice of Opportunity for Public Comment on Surplus Property Release at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport, Anchorage, Alaska.
Document Number: 2015-01823
Type: Notice
Date: 2015-01-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is considering a proposal to change approximately 40 acres of airport land from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport, Anchorage, Alaska. It is determined through study and master planning that the property will not be needed for aeronautical purposes for the foreseeable future as this portion of the parcel is not contiguous with the airport proper and is significantly geographically separated from the operational areas of the airport. A change to non-aeronautical use does not exclude aeronautical activities in this area in the future.

Airworthiness Directives; Dassault Aviation Airplanes
Document Number: 2015-01185
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-01-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Dassault Aviation Model MYSTERE-FALCON 50 airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report of an untimely and intermittent indication of slat activity due to chafing of the electrical wiring under the glare shield and behind the flight deck front panel. This AD requires installing two protective plates between the electrical wiring under the glare shield and the engine fire pull handles. We are issuing this AD to prevent chafing of the electrical wiring, which could result in a short circuit and generation of smoke in the cockpit, potential loss of several functions essential for safe flight, and consequent reduced controllability of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2015-01184
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-01-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model A330-300, A340-200, and A340-300 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report of substantial inner skin disbonding damage found on a rudder. This AD requires performing an inspection for damage of certain rudders, and repair if necessary. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct damage of the rudder, which could result in reduced structural integrity of the rudder.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2015-01182
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-01-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2009-06-06 for all Airbus Model A310 and A300-600 series airplanes. AD 2009-06-06 required revising the Airworthiness Limitations Section of the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness to incorporate new limitations and maintenance tasks for aging systems maintenance. This new AD requires revising the maintenance or inspection program to incorporate new maintenance requirements and airworthiness limitations. This AD was prompted by a determination that more restrictive maintenance requirements and airworthiness limitations are necessary. We are issuing this AD to prevent reduced structural integrity and reduced control of these airplanes due to the failure of system components.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes
Document Number: 2015-01180
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-01-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model DHC-8-400 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of two in-service incidents where one side of the main landing gear (MLG) did not achieve down-lock. This AD requires doing a detailed inspection of the apex joints of the stabilizer brace lock link in the MLG for clearance; rectifying and repairing the clearance gap, if necessary; and lubricating the apex joints of the stabilizer brace lock link in the MLG. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct insufficiently greased stabilizer brace lock linkage of the MLG and over-torqued lock linkage attachment bolts, which could lead to the failure to extend and down-lock the MLG, and could affect the safe landing of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Empresa Brasileira de Aeronautica S.A. (Embraer) Airplanes
Document Number: 2015-01177
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-01-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Empresa Brasileira de Aeronautica S.A. (Embraer) Model EMB-135ER, - 135KE, -135KL, -135LR, -145, -145ER, -145MR, -145LR, -145XR, -145MP, and -145EP airplanes. This AD was prompted by a determination of the need to revise the airplane airworthiness limitations related to the pylon yokes I and II, and the skin panel of the windshield pillar. This AD requires revising the maintenance or inspection program, as applicable. We are issuing this AD to prevent fatigue cracking of various structural elements, which could affect the structural integrity of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2015-01174
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-01-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus Model A330-201, -202, -203, -301, -302, and -303 airplanes. This AD requires a one-time ultrasonic inspection for fractures of all aft mount-pylon bolts of each engine. This AD was prompted by a report of one bolt on the aft engine mount upper beam found totally broken. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct fracture of the aft mount- pylon bolts, which could result in failure of the engine mount and consequent detachment of the engine.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes
Document Number: 2015-01171
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-01-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-2B16 (CL-604 Variant) airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of loose, broken, or backed-out spur gear bolts on the horizontal stabilizer trim actuator (HSTA). This AD requires a revision to the airplane flight manual, a revision to the maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, and replacement of HSTAs having certain part numbers. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct loose spur gear bolts on the HSTA, which, if combined with the failure of the primary load path, could lead to failure of the HSTA and subsequent loss of the airplane.
Standard Instrument Approach Procedures, and Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures; Miscellaneous Amendments
Document Number: 2015-01034
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-01-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This rule establishes, amends, suspends, or removes Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) and associated Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures (ODPs) for operations at certain airports. These regulatory actions are needed because of the adoption of new or revised criteria, or because of changes occurring in the National Airspace System, such as the commissioning of new navigational facilities, adding new obstacles, or changing air traffic requirements. These changes are designed to provide safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace and to promote safe flight operations under instrument flight rules at the affected airports.
