Federal Aviation Administration August 9, 2019 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Special Conditions: The Boeing Company (Boeing) Model 777-9 Series Airplane; Interior Design To Facilitate Searches for Passenger Cabin High Wall Suites
Document Number: 2019-17091
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-08-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes special conditions for The Boeing Company (Boeing) Model 777-9 series airplane. This airplane will have novel or unusual design features when compared to the state of technology envisioned in the airworthiness standards for transport category airplanes. These design features are passenger cabins with high wall suites (HWS). 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.
Airworthiness Directives; GE Honda Aero Engines Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2019-17078
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-08-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all GE Honda Aero Engines (GHAE) HF120 model turbofan engines with a certain fuel pump metering unit (FPMU) assembly. This AD was prompted by damage found on the permanent magnetic alternator (PMA) drive gear within the FPMU assembly. This AD requires removal of a certain FPMU assembly and its replacement with a part eligible for installation. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Special Conditions: The Boeing Company Model 777 Series Airplanes; Seats With Inertia Locking Devices
Document Number: 2019-17051
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-08-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes special conditions for The Boeing Company (Boeing) Model 777 series airplanes. 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 an inertia locking device (ILD) installed in passenger seats. 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.
Special Conditions: The Boeing Company Model 737 Series Airplanes; Seats With Inertia Locking Devices
Document Number: 2019-17050

Primary Category Design Standards; Cub Crafters, Inc., Model CC21-180 Airplane
Document Number: 2019-17013
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-08-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These airworthiness design standards are issued to Cub Crafters, Inc., for type certification of the Model CC21-180 airplane under the regulations for primary category aircraft.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-17008
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-08-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 787-8 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of an escapement from the wing spar terminal fitting supplier indicating that the engineering requirements provided by Boeing for controlling machine mismatch were incorrect for part faying surfaces, which can result in a reduced fatigue capability at the interface of the side of body (SOB) rib. This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections for fatigue cracking and applicable on- condition actions for the SOB rib webs where fastener locations attach the terminal fittings. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Delay of Class E Airspace Effective Date; Boulder City, NV
Document Number: 2019-16930
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-08-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action corrects the effective date for the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth at Boulder City, NV. The effective date was listed as August 15, 2019 and should have been October 10, 2019. This does not affect the charted boundaries or operating requirements of the airspace.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-16899
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-08-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2010-26-01, which applies to certain The Boeing Company Model 777-200 series airplanes. AD 2010-26-01 requires installing a new insulation blanket on the latch beam firewall of each thrust reverser (T/R) half. Since AD 2010-26-01 was issued, the agency received a report that the T/R affected by AD 2010-26-01 has the potential to be installed on airplanes outside of the applicability of that AD. This proposed AD would retain the requirements of 2010-26-01. This proposed AD would also add airplanes to the applicability. For those airplanes, this proposed AD would require an inspection to determine if the installed T/R has an affected part number and, if an affected part number is found, installation of a new insulation blanket. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
