Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; Clearance of Renewed Approval of Information Collection: National Flight Data Center Web Portal
Document Number: 2020-08836
Type: Notice
Date: 2020-04-27
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
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 collection involves aeronautical information detailing the physical description and operational status of all components of the National Airspace System (NAS). The information to be collected will be used to update government, military, and private aeronautical database, charts, publications, and flight management systems.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-08754
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-04-27
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus SAS Model A350-941 and -1041 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by the results of laboratory tests on non- rechargeable lithium batteries installed in certain emergency locator transmitters (ELT), which highlighted a lack of protection against current injections of 28 volts direct current (DC) or 115 volts alternating current (AC) that could lead to thermal runaway and a battery fire. This proposed AD would require modifying a certain ELT by installing a diode between the ELT and the terminal block, 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: 2020-08753
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-04-27
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus SAS Model A350-941 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports that the latches for the forward and aft pressure relief doors could be opened during exposure to fire, leading to a breach in the engine core firewall. This proposed AD would require modification and re-identification of the affected thrust reversers (TRs) and latch access doors (LADs), 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: 2020-08752
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-04-27
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus SAS Model A330-941 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report that seven spoiler servo-controls (SSCs) lost hydraulic locking function due to a sheared seal on the blocking valve. This proposed AD would require repetitive operational tests of the hydraulic locking function on each SSC and replacement if necessary, 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; Gulfstream Aerospace LP Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-08751
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-04-27
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Gulfstream Aerospace LP Model Gulfstream G280 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of inadequate clearance between the fuel probes and forward fuel tank structure. This proposed AD would require measuring the clearance between certain fuel probes and the forward fuel tank structure, and reinstalling the probes if necessary, as specified in a Civil Aviation Authority of Israel (CAAI) 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: 2020-08750
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-04-27
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus SAS Model A350-941 and -1041 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report that sticking effects have been observed affecting the breathing bag on certain passenger oxygen masks. This proposed AD would require replacement of affected passenger oxygen masks, 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.
