Federal Aviation Administration May 29, 2019 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; Embraer S.A. Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-11093
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-05-29
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Embraer S.A. Model ERJ 170 airplanes; Model ERJ 190-100 STD, - 100 LR, -100 ECJ, and -100 IGW airplanes; and Model ERJ 190-200 STD, - 200 LR, and -200 IGW airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of the ram air turbine (RAT) compartment door seal peeling off and tangling up on the RAT rotor during flight test. This proposed AD would require a general visual inspection for peeling-off of the RAT compartment door seal, bonding if necessary, and the rework of the RAT compartment door seal attachment. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Special Conditions: Airbus Model A330 Series Airplanes; Seats With Inertia Locking Devices
Document Number: 2019-11071
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-05-29
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These special conditions are issued for the Airbus Model A330 series airplane. These airplanes 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 seats with inertia locking devices. 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; Leonardo S.p.A. (Type Certificate Previously Held by Finmeccanica S.p.A., AgustaWestland S.p.A) Helicopters
Document Number: 2019-10773
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-05-29
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Leonardo S.p.A. (Type Certificate previously held by Finmeccanica S.p.A., AgustaWestland S.p.A.) Model AW109SP helicopters. This AD requires inspecting and altering the rescue hoist. This AD was prompted by a report of a damaged hoist cable that detached after load application. The actions of this AD are intended to address an unsafe condition on these products.
