Notice of Opportunity for Public Comment on Surplus Property Release at Jack Edwards Airport, Gulf Shores, AL
Under the provisions of title 49, U.S.C. 47153(c), notice is being given that the FAA is considering a request from the City of Gulf Shores and the City of Gulf Shores Airport Authority to waive the requirement that a 11.48-acre parcel of surplus property, located at the Jack Edwards Airport, be used for aeronautical purposes.
Ninth Meeting: RTCA Tactical Operations Committee (TOC)
The FAA is issuing this notice to advise the public of the seventh meeting of the RTCA Tactical Operations Committee.
Amendment of Restricted Area Boundary Descriptions; Joint Base Lewis-McChord, WA
This action corrects a final rule; technical amendment, published in the Federal Register on April 7, 2015, that made a correction to a typographical error to R-6703A, R-6703B, R-6703C, R- 6703D, R-6703E and R-6703F at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, WA. Due to a submission error, the abbreviation for West in the longitude description of restricted area R-6703A was entered as ``N''. This action corrects the boundary description of R-6703A by changing the longitude direction to ``W''.
Notice of Request To Release Airport Property
The FAA proposes to rule and invites public comment on the release of land at the Colonel James Jabara Airport (AAO), Wichita, Kansas, under the provisions of 49 U.S.C. 47107(h)(2).
Airworthiness Directives; GE Aviation Czech s.r.o. Turboprop Engines
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain serial number GE Aviation Czech s.r.o. M601E-11, M601E-11A, and M601F turboprop engines with certain part number (P/N) gas generator turbine (GGT) blades, installed. This proposed AD was prompted by the determination that certain GGT blades are susceptible to blade failure. This proposed AD would require removing from service any affected engine with certain GGT blades installed. We are proposing this AD to prevent GGT blade failure, which could lead to engine failure and loss of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce plc Turbofan Engines
We are revising an earlier proposed airworthiness directive (AD) for all Rolls-Royce plc (RR) RB211 Trent 768-60, 772-60, and 772B- 60 turbofan engines. The NPRM proposed to require inspection of the fan case low-pressure (LP) fuel tubes and clips and the fuel oil heat exchanger (FOHE) mounts and hardware. The NPRM was prompted by fuel leaks caused by damage to the fan case LP fuel tube. This supplemental action revises the NPRM by expanding inspections and corrective actions, correcting a part number (P/N) and the costs of compliance, reducing the applicability, providing another method to comply with certain requirements, and giving credit for certain previous actions. We are proposing this SNPRM to prevent failure of the fan case LP fuel tube, which could lead to an in-flight engine shutdown, loss of thrust control, and damage to the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Pratt & Whitney Turbofan Engines
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Pratt & Whitney (PW) PW4164-1D, PW4168-1D, PW4168A-1D and PW4170 engines, and certain PW4164, PW4168, and PW4168A turbofan engines. This proposed AD was prompted by fuel nozzle-to-fuel supply manifold interface fuel leaks. This proposed AD would require inspecting fuel nozzles for signs of leakage, replacing hardware as required, and torqueing to specified requirement. We are proposing this AD to prevent fuel leaks which could result in engine fire and damage to the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model DHC-8-400 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report that during production, an incorrect clevis was used, resulting in improper installation onto the alternate release cable of the main landing gear (MLG). This AD requires a detailed visual inspection of the emergency release clevis of the MLG to determine if an incorrect clevis has been installed, and if necessary, replacing the clevis with a correct clevis and clevis pin. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct improper installation of the clevis, which could cause loss of the alternate release system and prevent the MLG from extending and retracting, and could consequently affect the airplane's continued safe flight and landing.
