Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
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 a previously approved information collection. Title 49 United States Code (49 U.S.C.) 44703(h): Records of Employment of Pilot Applicants, which was established by the Pilot Records Improvement Act of 1996 (PRIA), mandates that air carriers who have been issued a part 119 air carrier certificate and are authorized to conduct operations under Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 121 or part 135 as well as part 125 and 135 operators, request and receive FAA records, air carrier and other operator records, and the National Driver Register records before allowing an individual to begin service as a pilot.
Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace, Barter Island, AK
Document Number: 2016-24625
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-10-13
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to modify Class E airspace at Barter Island LRRS Airport, Barter Island, AK because the North Slope Borough is relocating the airport. The FAA found modification of this airspace and adjustment of the airport's geographic coordinates necessary for the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-24508
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-10-13
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 737-600, -700, -700C, -800, -900, and -900ER series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of passenger service units (PSUs) becoming detached from the supporting airplane structure in several Model 737 airplane incidents that exceeded the design emergency load requirements for the PSUs. This proposed AD would require modifying the PSUs and life vest panels by removing the existing inboard lanyard and installing two new lanyards on the outboard edge of the PSUs and life vest panels. We are proposing this AD to prevent PSUs and life vest panels from detaching from the supporting airplane structure, which could lead to passenger injuries and impede passenger and crew egress during evacuation.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-22835
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-10-13
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2010-23-19 for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701, and 702) airplanes, Model CL-600-2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705) airplanes, and Model CL-600-2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900) airplanes. AD 2010-23-19 required repetitive inspections for damage of the main landing gear (MLG) inboard doors and fairing, and corrective actions if necessary. This new AD requires repetitive inspections for damage of the MLG inboard doors, MLG fairing, and adjacent structures of the MLG inboard doors, and corrective actions if necessary; replacement of the MLG fairing seal; and a terminating action involving increasing the clearances between the MLG fairing and MLG door. This new AD also adds one airplane and removes others from the applicability. This AD was prompted by reports of the MLG failing to fully extend. We are issuing this AD to prevent loss of controllability of the airplane during landing.
