Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Helicopters
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus Helicopters Model EC225LP helicopters. This proposed AD was prompted by a mechanical deformation found on the protective cover of the ``SHEAR'' control pushbutton installed on a copilot collective stick. This proposed AD would require modification of the helicopter by replacing the protective cover and re-identifying the part number (P/N) of the pilot and copilot collective sticks. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; Clearance of Renewed Approval of Information Collection: Experimental Permits for Reusable Suborbital Rockets
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 FAA collects information from applicants for experimental permits in order to determine whether they satisfy the requirements for obtaining an experimental permit.
Airworthiness Directives; Fokker Services B.V. Airplanes
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Fokker Services B.V. Model F28 Mark 0100 airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report of a crack found in the inboard boom of the left- hand frame at fuselage station (STA) 17011. This AD requires a detailed inspection of the fuselage at STA 17011 for any cracking, repair if necessary, and a reporting requirement, as specified in a European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which is incorporated by reference. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Notice To Rescind a Notice of Intent To Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement
A Notice of Intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement was published in the Federal Register Vol. 78, No. 248, Thursday, December 26, 2013, to advise the public that the FAA would prepare an EIS analyzing the potential environmental impacts of the proposed Shiloh Launch Complex. Space Florida had indicated an intent to submit an application to the FAA to request approval to operate a commercial space launch site, called the ``Shiloh Launch Complex'' in Brevard and Volusia Counties, Florida, triggering the requirement to comply with the National Environmental Policy Act. The FAA is issuing this notice to advise the public that Space Florida is conducting further analysis of the proposed site and the FAA will no longer prepare an EIS for this proposed project, at this time. If Space Florida decides to reinitiate the project, the FAA will release a new Notice of Intent for this project.
