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 renew an information collection. The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on the following collection of information was published on November 7, 2019. The collection involves the voluntary submission of application information for persons applying to become designated representatives of the FAA Administrator under 14 CFR part 183. The information to be collected will be used by the FAA to screen and select designees who will act as representatives of the FAA Administrator in performing various certification and examination functions under Title VI of the Federal Aviation Act. This notice corrects information in the 60-day notice stating the collection applies only to DER applicants using FAA Form 8110-4. The collection applies to all applicants for designation under 14 CFR part 183 and includes four (4) forms in total. Additionally, the FAA is introducing the Designee Management System (DMS), a web-based application to provide for electronic information submission by applicants.
Airworthiness Directives; 328 Support Services GmbH (Type Certificate Previously Held by AvCraft Aerospace GmbH; Fairchild Dornier GmbH; Dornier Luftfahrt GmbH) Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-01922
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-02-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2004-06-01, which applies to certain Dornier Model 328-100 series airplanes; and AD 2009-06-09, which applies to all Dornier Model 328- 100 series airplanes. AD 2004-06-01 requires replacement of the existing main landing gear (MLG) leg assembly with a modified assembly. AD 2009-06-09 requires modifying the MLG main body and trailing arm bushings, and revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations. Since the FAA issued AD 2004-06-01 and 2009-06-09, the FAA has determined 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, 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.
