Special Conditions: Robinson Helicopter Company, Model Robinson R66, Visual Flight Rules Autopilot and Stability Augmentation System (AP/SAS System)
Document Number: 2019-13651
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-06-26
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes special conditions for the Robinson Helicopter Company (Robinson) Model R66 helicopter. This helicopter will have a novel or unusual design feature associated with installation of the autopilot and stability augmentation system (AP/SAS system). The applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for this design feature. These proposed 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.

Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; Clearance of Approval of New Information Collection: For the Information Collection Entitled, Website for Frequency Coordination Request (WebFCR), Pursuant to FAA Order 6050.32B
Document Number: 2019-13525
Type: Notice
Date: 2019-06-26
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 allow a new information collection. The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on the following collection of information was published on April 19, 2019. The FAA has developed and deployed an information system, The Web-based Frequency Coordination Request (WebFCR) system to collect certain broadcast frequency information originally collected on form 7460-1, under OMB control number 2120- 0001. It was determined that several broadcast applications from proponents not associated with construction, alterations and/or obstructions were not being properly captured with the required frequency data impacting the initiation of aeronautical studies, hence this defined new collection.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-13422
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-06-26
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus SAS Model A330-200, A330-200 Freighter, A330-300, A340- 200, A340-300, A340-500, and A340-600 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report that an airplane failed to extend its nose landing gear (NLG) using the free fall method, due to loss of the green hydraulic system. This proposed AD would require repetitive tests of affected free fall actuators (FFA), and replacement of any affected FFA that fails a test with a serviceable FFA; as specified in a European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which will be incorporated by reference. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-13421
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-06-26
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus SAS Model A330-243, A330-243F, A330-341, A330-342, and A330-343 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of thrust reverser unit (TRU) beams found with evidence of thermally caused material degradation in the rearmost section of the TRU beam at certain latches. This proposed AD would require an inspection for heat damage of each left-hand and right-hand TRU beam. Depending on findings, this proposed AD might also require inspections of the TRU beam latches, the TRU beam clevises, and the thrust reverser outer fixed structure rear area; corrective actions; and replacement of TRU beams; as specified in a European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which will be incorporated by reference. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
