Commercial Space Transportation Advisory Committee-Reestablishment
Document Number: 2017-12331
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-06-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
FAA announces the reestablishment of the COMSTAC, a Federal Advisory Committee that provides information, advice, and recommendations to the Department of Transportation and the Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on the critical matters facing the U.S. commercial space transportation industry. This reestablishment will take effect 15 days after the publication of this announcement, and will expire after 2 years.
Special Conditions: Embraer S.A. Model ERJ 190-300 Airplane; Electronic System Security Protection From Unauthorized Internal Access
Document Number: 2017-12281
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-06-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These special conditions are issued for the Embraer S.A. (Embraer) Model ERJ 190-300 airplane. This airplane will have a novel or unusual design feature when compared to the state of technology envisioned in the airworthiness standards for transport-category airplanes. This design feature is a digital-systems network architecture requiring isolation or protection from unauthorized internal access. The applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for this design feature. These special conditions contain the additional safety standards that the Administrator considers necessary to establish a level of safety equivalent to that established by the existing airworthiness standards.
Special Conditions: Embraer S.A. ERJ 190-300 Airplane; Electronic-System Security Protection From Unauthorized External Access
Document Number: 2017-12280
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-06-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These special conditions are issued for the Embraer S.A. (Embraer) ERJ 190-300 airplane. This airplane will have a novel or unusual design feature when compared to the state of technology envisioned in the airworthiness standards for transport-category airplanes. These airplanes will have a digital-systems network architecture composed of several connected networks that may allow access to or by external computer systems and networks, and may result in airplane electronic system-security vulnerabilities. The applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for this design feature. These special conditions contain the additional safety standards that the Administrator considers necessary to establish a level of safety equivalent to that established by the existing airworthiness standards.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-09846
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-06-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model CL-600-2A12 (CL-601 Variant) and CL- 600-2B16 (CL-601-3A, CL-601-3R, and CL-604 Variants) airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a determination that the bushing holes on the engine mount rib might not conform to the engineering drawings and that certain inspections of the engine mount rib must be included in the airworthiness limitations section (ALS) of the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness (ICA). This proposed AD would require revising the maintenance or inspection program to incorporate certain airworthiness limitation items (ALIs). We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
