Federal Aviation Administration August 30, 2019 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Special Conditions: DAHER Aerospace Model TBM700 Airplanes; Autothrust System
Document Number: 2019-18814
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-08-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These special conditions are issued for the DAHER Aerospace Model TBM700 airplane. This airplane will have a novel or unusual design feature associated with the use of an autothrust system. The applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for this design feature. These special conditions contain the additional safety standards the Administrator considers necessary to establish a level of safety equivalent to that established by the existing airworthiness standards.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-18764
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-08-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus SAS Model A350-941 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by the results of a structural analysis, which identified that the upper frame fittings (UFF) of the forward cargo door surrounding structure have a low fatigue life. This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections of the forward cargo door UFF and brackets for discrepancies and, depending on the findings, doing applicable corrective actions, as specified in a European Union 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: 2019-18763
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-08-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus SAS Model A319-112, A319-115, A319-132, A320-214, A320-216, A320-232, A320-233, A320-251N, A320-271N, A321-211, A321-231, A321-232, A321-251N, and A321-253N airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of finding container/galley end stop bumpers damaged in service. This proposed AD would require replacement of the affected bumpers with serviceable bumpers, as specified in a European Union 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; Fokker Services B.V. Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-18762
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-08-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Fokker Services B.V. Model F28 Mark 0070 and 0100 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of lavatory waste bin fire extinguishers found depleted. This proposed AD would require a one-time inspection of the installation of the waste bins for interference (the inspection also includes a weight check of the waste bin fire extinguisher and an inspection of the discharge tubes for damage), modification of affected waste bins, and replacement of affected fire extinguishers, as specified in a European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which will be incorporated by reference. This proposed AD would also require replacement of the fire extinguisher if any damaged discharge tube is found or the weight of the waste bin fire extinguisher is too low. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-18761
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-08-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus SAS Model A320-214, -216, -232, and -233 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of undetected contacts between certain harnesses of the common fuel quantity indicating system and the center tank structure. This proposed AD would require modification of the fasteners for certain harness routings, 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.
Airspace Designations; Incorporation by Reference
Document Number: 2019-18722
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-08-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 relating to airspace designations to reflect the approval by the Director of the Federal Register of the incorporation by reference of FAA Order 7400.11D, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points. This action also explains the procedures the FAA will use to amend the listings of Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas; air traffic service routes; and reporting points incorporated by reference.
