Membership in the National Parks Overflights Advisory Group Aviation Rulemaking Committee
By Federal Register notice (See 81 FR 290, January 5, 2016) the National Park Service (NPS) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) invited interested persons to apply to fill two upcoming openings on the National Parks Overflights Advisory Group (NPOAG) Aviation Rulemaking Committee (ARC). The notice invited interested persons to apply to fill future openings to represent air tour operator concerns and environmental interests. This notice informs the public of the person selected to fill the air tour operator future vacancy. No selection has been made for the vacancy representing environmental interests so this notice also invites persons interested in serving on the ARC to apply for the upcoming opening for this seat.
Delegation of Authority
The FAA is giving notice of a new delegation of authority from the Administrator to the Chief Counsel and to the Director of the Office of Adjudication regarding civil penalty actions under 14 CFR part 13 subpart G. The delegation was set forth in a memorandum signed by the Administrator dated March 28, 2016. The FAA is publishing the text of the delegation, so that it is available to interested parties. This delegation supersedes and replaces a previous delegation of authority by the Administrator by memorandum issued on October 27, 1992 and published in the Federal Register on December 9, 1992. 57 FR 58280; December 9, 1992.
Airworthiness Directives; Dassault Aviation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Dassault Aviation Model FALCON 7X airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of multiple cases of ram air turbine (RAT) blade damage. This AD requires deployment of the RAT, replacement of the RAT placard with a new RAT placard, and re-identification of the RAT. We are issuing this AD to prevent blade damage to the RAT, which could prevent RAT deployment in flight during an emergency, possibly resulting in reduced control of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2014-03-14 for all Airbus Model A330-200 and -300 series airplanes, and Model A340- 200, -300, -500, and -600 series airplanes. AD 2014-03-14 required removing bulb-type maintenance lights; installing a drain mast on certain airplanes; and installing muffs on connecting bleed elements on certain airplanes. For certain Model A340-200 and -300 series airplanes, this new AD also requires replacing certain insulation sleeves with new insulation sleeves. This AD results from fuel system reviews conducted by the airplane manufacturer. We are issuing this AD to prevent ignition sources inside fuel tanks, which, in combination with flammable fuel vapors, could result in fuel tank explosions and consequent loss of the airplane.
