The FAA is issuing this notice to advise the public of the thirty-second meeting of the RTCA Special Committee 224, Airport Security Access Control Systems.
Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; Clearance of Renewed Approval of Information Collection: Organization Designation Authorization
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 Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on the following collection of information was published on December 22, 2014. This collection involves organizations applying to perform certification functions on behalf of the FAA, including approving data and issuing various aircraft and organization certificates.
Airworthiness Directives; Stemme AG Gliders
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Stemme AG TSA-M Models S6 and S6-RT gliders. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by the aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as a bending defect of the fork head installed in the aileron, speed brake, and flap control systems. We are issuing this AD to require actions to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Short Brothers & Harland Ltd. Airplanes
The FAA is correcting an airworthiness directive (AD) that published in the Federal Register. That AD applies to all Short Brothers & Harland Ltd. Model SC-7 Series 3 airplanes. The amendment number in the Agency Identification Numbers in the preamble section of the AD is incorrect. Although no other part of the preamble or regulatory information has been corrected, we are publishing the entire rule in the Federal Register.
Airworthiness Directives; Agusta S.p.A. Helicopters
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2014-04-14 for Agusta S.p.A. (Agusta) Model A109S, AW109SP, A119, and AW119 MKII helicopters. AD 2014-04-14 required removing certain rod end assemblies from service because of reports of fractures. This new AD retains the requirements of AD 2014-04-14 but expands the scope of applicable rod end assemblies. This AD was prompted by reports of additional fractured rod end assemblies. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of a rod end assembly, which could result in damage to the main rotor assembly and loss of control of the helicopter.
