Public Notice for Waiver of Aeronautical Land-Use Assurance
Document Number: 2019-09360
Type: Notice
Date: 2019-05-07
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is considering a proposal to change 8.313 acres of airport land from aeronautical to non-aeronautical use and to authorize the lease of airport property located at John Glenn Columbus International Airport, Columbus, Ohio. The aforementioned land is not needed for aeronautical use. The subject property is located along the northern property boundary of the airport; north of Bridgeway Avenue. The parcel is currently vacant. The parcel presently serves the primary purpose of compatible land use. The parcel will continue to serve in this same capacity with a proposed change to nonaeronautical, revenue-producing use from its present aeronautical use designation. The parcel will be used for construction of a 2-story office building, approximately 19,600 square feet, connected to a 80,100 square foot building, and the potential to add a 30,000 square foot building. The proposed development also includes approximately 289 parking spaces with the flexibility to add 14 spaces for future expansion.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-09266
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-05-07
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2016-07- 22, which applies to all Airbus SAS Model A300 B4-600, B4-600R, and F4- 600R series airplanes, and Model A300 C4-605R Variant F airplanes (collectively called Model A300-600 series airplanes), and Model A310 series airplanes. AD 2016-07-22 requires modifying the electrical routing installation at the right-hand (RH) and left-hand (LH) wings to achieve a minimum distance between wiring bundles and surrounding structures. Since we issued AD 2016-07-22, we received reports of missing installation information for certain airplanes. This proposed AD would retain the requirements of AD 2016-07-22 and, for certain airplanes, add a requirement to further modify the electrical installations in both wings, as specified in an European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which will be incorporated by reference. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-09265
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-05-07
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 96-25-04, which applies to certain Airbus SAS Model A320 series airplanes. AD 96- 25-04 requires repetitive inspections to detect chafing of the wire looms (bundles) in the wing and the horizontal stabilizer and in certain areas of the main landing gear (MLG) bays; repair or replacement, protection, and realignment, if necessary; installation of protective sleeves around the wire bundles; and realignment of bundles that are not guided centrally into the conduit end fittings. Since we issued AD 96-25-04, investigations identified issues with the previously installed protective sleeves. This proposed AD would partially retain the requirements of AD 96-25-04 and would require modification of the wing electrical installation, as specified in an European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which will be incorporated by reference. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-09264
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-05-07
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2018-20- 06, which applies to certain Airbus SAS Model A300 F4-600R series airplanes. AD 2018-20-06 requires repetitive high frequency eddy current (HFEC) inspections of the aft lower deck cargo door (LDCD) frame forks; a one-time check of the LDCD clearances; and a one-time detailed visual inspection of hooks, eccentric bushes, and x-stops; and corrective actions if necessary. Since we issued AD 2018-20-06, we determined certain compliance times need to be revised, depending on frame fork configuration. This proposed AD would continue to require the actions of AD 2018-20-06 and would require new compliance times, depending on frame fork configuration. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-09257
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-05-07
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus SAS Model A330-200 Freighter series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of cracked flexible hoses of the oxygen crew and courier distribution system (OCCDS) on A330 freighter airplanes. This proposed AD would require repetitive detailed inspections, including functional testing, of the OCCDS and replacement of affected part(s) if necessary, as specified in an European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which will be incorporated by reference. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-09256
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-05-07
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus SAS Model A320-251N and -271N airplanes; and A321-251N, -253N, -271N, and -272N airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report that during a calibration check, some torqueing tools used on the final assembly line have been found out of tolerance. This proposed AD would require retorqueing each affected connection of sense and fire extinguishing lines within the pylon area to a correct torque value, as specified in a European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which will be incorporated by reference. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Petition for Exemption; Summary of Petition Received; Bell Helicopter Textron, Inc.
Document Number: 2019-09253
Type: Notice

Neither publication of this notice nor the inclusion or omission of information in the summary is intended to affect the legal status of the petition or its final disposition.
Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; Clearance of New Approval of Information Collection: Safety Statement Requirement for Manufacturers of Small Unmanned Aircraft Correction
Document Number: 2019-09252
Type: Notice
Date: 2019-05-07
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 of a new information collection. The collection involves manufacturers of small unmanned aircraft providing a safety statement to owners of the UAS they produce. This is a statutory requirement. To minimize the burden on small businesses, the FAA has developed an example safety statement that can be used to satisfy the requirement. This FRN corrects the previously submitted 60- Day FRN to include updated contact information and docket number.
