Federal Aviation Administration August 5, 2019 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-16701
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-08-05
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus SAS Model A330-200 Freighter series airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of cracked flexible hoses of the oxygen crew and courier distribution system (OCCDS) on A330 freighter airplanes. This AD requires repetitive detailed inspections, including functional testing, of the OCCDS and replacement of affected part(s) if necessary, as specified in a European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which is incorporated by reference. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Amendment of Class E Airspace; Forest City, IA
Document Number: 2019-16606
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-08-05
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action amends the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Forest City Municipal Airport, Forest City, IA. This action is due to an airspace review caused by the decommissioning of the Forest City non-directional beacon (NDB), which provided navigation information to the instrument procedures at this airport. Airspace redesign is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at this airport.
Airworthiness Directives; Diamond Aircraft Industries GmbH Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-16573
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-08-05
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Diamond Aircraft Industries GmbH Model DA 42 NG and Model DA 42 M-NG airplanes. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The unsafe condition in the MCAI is insufficient clearance of the gust lock mounts on the pilot side rudder pedals. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Canada Limited Partnership (Type Certificate Previously Held by C Series Aircraft Limited Partnership (CSALP); Bombardier, Inc.) Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-16571
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-08-05
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Canada Limited Partnership Model BD-500-1A10 and BD- 500-1A11 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a determination that new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations are necessary. This proposed AD would require revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Glasflugel Gliders
Document Number: 2019-16570
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-08-05
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2018-21- 04 for Glasflugel Models Club Libelle 205, H 301 ``Libelle,'' H 301B ``Libelle,'' Kestrel, Mosquito, Standard ``Libelle,'' and Standard Libelle-201B gliders. This proposed AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as jamming between the double two-ring end of the towing cable and the deflector angles of the center of gravity (C.G.) release mechanism. We are issuing this proposed AD to require actions to address the unsafe condition on these products.
