Federal Aviation Administration February 28, 2020 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airport Improvement Program (AIP) Grant Assurances
Document Number: 2020-04139
Type: Notice
Date: 2020-02-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA has updated the AIP grant assurances to reflect recent legislative provisions in the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018 as well as recently issued executive orders.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Helicopters
Document Number: 2020-04043
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-02-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Airbus Helicopters Model EC 155B and EC155B1 helicopters. This proposed AD would require modifying the wiring of the attitude and heading reference system (AHRS) connector. This proposed AD is prompted by a report of wiring of the AHRS contrary to approved design specifications. The actions of this proposed AD are intended to address an unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; ATR-GIE Avions de Transport Régional Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-03547
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-02-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2000-17-09, AD 2008-04-19 R1, and AD 2015-26-09; and to terminate all requirements of AD 2018-18-05, which applies to ATRGIE Avions de Transport R[eacute]gional Model ATR42-200, -300, and -320 airplanes. AD 2018-18-05 requires updating the maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new or more restrictive maintenance requirements and airworthiness limitations and terminates the relevant requirements of AD 2000-17-09, AD 2008-04-19 R1, and AD 2015-26-09. Since AD 2018-18-05 was issued, 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.
Special Conditions: The Boeing Company Model 777-9 Series; Overhead Flight Attendant Rest Compartment
Document Number: 2020-03475
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-02-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These special conditions are issued for the Boeing Company (Boeing) Model 777-9 series airplane. This airplane 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 associated with the installation of an overhead flight attendant rest (OFAR) compartment. The applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for this design feature. These 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.
