Notice of Opportunity for Public Comment on a Land Use Change From Aeronautical to Non-Aeronautical Use for Revenue Generation of 5 Acres of Airport Land at Nantucket Memorial Airport, Nantucket, MA
Document Number: 2017-11478
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-06-05
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
Notice is being given that the FAA is considering a request from the Town of Nantucket in Nantucket, MA, to change the current land use from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use of a 5 acre parcel of land. The parcel is located in the northwestern quadrant of the airport and is adjacent to other non-airport parcels used for industrial and/or commercial use properties. The parcel is currently identified as surplus for non-aeronautical use on the airport's September 16, 2015 Airport Layout Plan. The parcel will be used to generate non- aeronautical revenue through the lease of land for industrial/ commercial use. All revenues through the leasing of the parcel will continue to be subject to the FAA's revenue-use policy and dedicated to the maintenance and operation of Nantucket Memorial Airport.
Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce plc Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2017-11412
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-06-05
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding airworthiness directive (AD) 2015-17-19 for all Rolls-Royce plc (RR) RB211 Trent 768-60, 772-60, and 772B-60 turbofan engines. AD 2015-17-19 required inspection of the fan case low-pressure (LP) fuel tubes and associated clips and the fuel oil heat exchanger (FOHE) mounts and associated hardware. This AD requires an engine modification, which terminates the repetitive inspections. This AD was prompted by fractures on the LP fuel return tube at mid-span locations that were found with resulting fuel leaks. We are issuing this AD to correct the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-11257
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-06-05
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 737-100, -200, -200C, -300, -400, and -500 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of cracking in the upper aft skin at the rear spar of the wings. This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections for cracking of the upper aft skin of the wings, and repair if necessary. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-11256
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-06-05
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model CL-600-2B16 (CL-604 Variant) airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of in-service incidents regarding the loss of all air data system information provided to the flightcrew. This proposed AD would require revising the airplane flight manual to provide ``Unreliable Airspeed'' procedures to the flightcrew to stabilize the airplane's airspeed and attitude for continued safe flight and landing. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Northrop Grumman LITEF GmbH LCR-100 Attitude and Heading Reference System Units
Document Number: 2017-11132
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-06-05
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Northrop Grumman LITEF GmbH LCR-100 Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS) units installed on various aircraft. This proposed AD would require removing certain LCR-100 AHRS units from service. This proposed AD is prompted by test results showing loss of or invalid data. The proposed actions are intended to prevent an unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation Helicopters
Document Number: 2017-11128
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-06-05
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation (Sikorsky) Model S-76A, S-76B, S-76C, and S-76D helicopters. This proposed AD would require inspecting the main rotor (M/R) servo pushrod (pushrod) assembly and applying slippage marks. This proposed AD is prompted by an accident of a Sikorsky Model S-76C helicopter caused by a failed pushrod assembly. The proposed actions are intended to prevent an unsafe condition on these products.
