Receipt of Noise Compatibility Program and Request for Review for Bob Hope Airport, Burbank, California
Document Number: 2016-11814
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-05-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces that it is reviewing a proposed noise compatibility program that was submitted for Bob Hope Airport under the provisions of 49 U.S.C. 47501 et seq. (the Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act, hereinafter referred to as ``the Act'') and 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 150 by the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority, Burbank, California. This program was submitted subsequent to a determination by FAA that associated noise exposure maps submitted under 14 CFR part 150 for Bob Hope Airport were in compliance with applicable requirements, effective October 10, 2013, 78 FR 64048-64049. The proposed noise compatibility program will be approved or disapproved on or before November 7, 2016.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-11682
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-05-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2014-20-01 for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-2B16 (CL-601-3A, CL-601-3R, and CL-604 Variants) airplanes. AD 2014-20-01 required repetitive inspections for any fuel leak in the right-hand landing lights compartment, and related investigative and corrective actions if necessary. AD 2014-20-01 also provides for an optional replacement of the connector of the fuel boost pump canister of the auxiliary power unit (APU), which terminates the repetitive inspections. This new AD requires replacing the connector of the fuel boost pump canister of the APU. This AD was prompted by the determination that a terminating action for the repetitive inspections is necessary. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct fuel leaks in the right-hand landing lights compartment, which, in combination with the heat generated by the taxi lights and landing lights on the ground reaching the auto-ignition temperature of the fuel, could result in ignition of any fuel or fumes present in the right-hand landing lights compartment.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-11457
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-05-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model BD-700-1A10 and BD-700-1A11 airplanes. This AD was prompted by a determination that the network interface installed between the Information Management System (IMS) 6000 unit and the Cabin Entertainment System (CES) network could affect the Aircraft Control Domain (ACD), and result in the transmission of misleading navigational information to the flightcrew. This AD requires inspecting the network interface installation between the IMS and the CES, and disconnecting the installation, if necessary. We are issuing this AD to prevent the transmission of misleading navigational information, which could adversely affect the ability of the flightcrew to maintain the safe flight and landing of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-11427
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-05-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model DHC-8-102, -103, -106, -201, -202, -301, -311, and -315 airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report of a pilot commanding an in-flight engine shut down in response to a low oil pressure warning indication. Further investigation revealed the mounting studs in the engine mounted alternating current (AC) generator mounting plate were pulled out of position and the threaded interface in the plate was corroded. This AD requires repetitive inspections for discrepancies on certain AC generator mounting adapters, and replacing discrepant adapters with serviceable ones. This AD also requires revising the maintenance program to incorporate a repetitive task specified in certain temporary revisions. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct corrosion in the AC generator mounting plate, which could result in a gap between the AC generator and the generator mounting plate, and cause loss of engine oil and consequent engine failure.
