Airworthiness Directives; PZL Swidnik S.A. Helicopters
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain PZL Swidnik S.A. Model PZL W-3A helicopters. This AD requires visually inspecting the bonding on a certain part-numbered fairing installed on a certain part-numbered vibration absorber, improving the bonding if necessary, using improved installation procedures to secure the fairing to the vibration absorber, and removing certain parts from service. This AD also prohibits installing the affected part unless it is inspected and installed per the AD requirements. This AD was prompted by a report of a broken bolt securing the fairing to the vibration absorber that resulted from an incorrect torque value for the nut used to secure the fairing to the vibration absorber. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

This action modifies the Class E airspace, designated as a surface area at Gulkana Airport, Gulkana, AK. This action also modifies the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface.

Additionally, this action removes the Gulkana VORTAC and the Glenallen NDB from the Class E2 text header and airspace description. Further, this action removes the Gulkana VOR/DME from the Class E5 text header and airspace description. Lastly, this action implements administrative updates to the Class E2 and E5 text headers and the Class E2 airspace description. The airspace is designed to support instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airport.
