Federal Aviation Administration March 30, 2021 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; Pilatus Aircraft Ltd. Airplanes
Document Number: 2021-06514
Type: Rule
Date: 2021-03-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Pilatus Aircraft Ltd. (Pilatus) Model PC-24 airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report that electronic circuit breakers (ECBs) were found in a locked state after maintenance, but before flight. This AD requires revising the airplane flight manual (AFM) to incorporate a procedure to check for the ECB status. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation Airplanes
Document Number: 2021-06500
Type: Rule
Date: 2021-03-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation (Gulfstream) Model GV airplanes. This AD was prompted by notification of corrosion present in floor beam support links. This AD requires inspecting the right butt line 6 floor beam inboard support links and bushings for corrosion. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; Clearance of New Approval of Information Collection: Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) BEYOND and Partnership for Safety Plan (PSP) Programs
Document Number: 2021-06490
Type: Notice
Date: 2021-03-30
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 for a new information collection. The collection involves data and report submissions by State, local and tribal participants in the UAS BEYOND program, and by industry participants in the Partnership for Safety Plan (PSP) program. UAS BEYOND and PSP participants will also conduct qualitative, non- statistical surveys of the general public. The information to be collected will be used to inform FAA policy and decision-making regarding integrating UAS into the National Airspace System.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Helicopters Deutschland GmbH (AHD) Helicopters
Document Number: 2021-06473
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-03-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Airbus Helicopters Deutschland GmbH (AHD) Model EC135P1, EC135P2, EC135P2+, EC135P3, EC135T1, EC135T2, EC135T2+, and EC135T3 helicopters. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of a report of increased control force in the collective axis. This proposed AD would require a one-time visual inspection of the main rotor actuator (MRA), as specified in a European Aviation Safety Agency (now European Union Aviation Safety Agency) (EASA) AD, which is proposed for incorporation by reference (IBR). The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce Deutschland Ltd & Co KG (Type Certificate Previously Held by Rolls-Royce plc) Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2021-06408
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-03-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to supersede airworthiness directive (AD) 2020-13-07, which applies to all Rolls-Royce Deutschland Ltd & Co KG (RRD) Trent 1000-D2, Trent 1000-J2, and Trent 1000-K2 model turbofan engines with a certain part-numbered fuel pump installed. AD 2020-13-07 requires removal and replacement of the fuel pump with a part eligible for installation. Since the FAA issued AD 2020-13-07, the manufacturer determined that an additional part-numbered fuel pump is subject to the same unsafe condition identified in AD 2020-13-07. This proposed AD would add an additional part-numbered fuel pump and additional Trent 1000 model turbofan engines to the applicability. This proposed AD would require new and reduced life limits, depending on the engine model, for affected fuel pumps. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
