Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2022-18452
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2022-08-29
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus SAS Model A350-1041 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of rejected take-offs after transient engine N1 shaft speed exceedance. This proposed AD would require replacing certain hydro-mechanical units (HMUs) with serviceable HMUs before reaching a reduced life limit, as specified in a European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which is proposed for incorporation by reference. This proposed AD would also limit the installation of affected parts under certain conditions. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

Airworthiness Directives; Viking Air Limited (Type Certificate Previously Held by Bombardier Inc. and de Havilland Inc.) Airplanes
Document Number: 2022-18383
Type: Rule
Date: 2022-08-26
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2002-14- 28, which applied to all de Havilland Inc. (type certificate currently held by Viking Air Limited) Model DHC-2 Mk. I, DHC-2 Mk. II, and DHC-2 Mk. III airplanes. AD 2002-14-28 established a life limit for the front fuselage struts and required repetitively replacing the front fuselage struts every 15 years or repetitively inspecting the struts for corrosion or fatigue damage and replacing when the damage exceeded a certain level. Since the FAA issued AD 2002-14-28, Transport Canada superseded its mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) to correct this unsafe condition on these products. This AD requires either doing recurring visual inspections, borescope inspections, and non-destructive inspections (NDIs) of the struts and airframe lugs with corrective action as necessary or replacing the struts every 15 years and doing recurring NDIs of the airframe lugs with corrective action as necessary. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Notice of Intent of Waiver With Respect to Land; French Lick Municipal Airport, French Lick, IN
Document Number: 2022-18379
Type: Notice
Date: 2022-08-26
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is considering a proposal to change 18.23 Acres of airport land from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use and to authorize the sale of airport property located at French Lick Municipal Airport, French Lick, IN. The aforementioned land is not needed for aeronautical use. The current county road adjacent to the subject property was constructed on previous airport property sold by the Airport to Orange County; however, due to unforeseen geological conditions, the road has failed multiple times. As a corrective action, Orange County, in partnership with the Indiana Department of Transportation seek to realign a portion of the road to a location to avoid the region with the geologic issues. In order to facilitate this realignment, the Airport was approached with a second request to transfer additional land to Orange County. This land is located on the opposite side of the new road that was recently constructed and is not contiguous with the airport land that supports aeronautical use. Therefore, the French Lick Municipal Airport Board of Aviation Commissioners (BOAC) would like to release 18.23 acres of land to the Orange County Commissioners, for the purpose of allowing Orange County to construct a realigned County Road 300 South.

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2022-18112
Type: Rule
Date: 2022-08-23
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation

The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain MHI RJ Aviation ULC Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes. This AD was prompted by a determination that a certain nondestructive test (NDT) procedure associated with a certain airworthiness limitation for inspecting surface and subsurface fatigue cracks at certain fuselage stations does not address all required inspections. This AD requires using a revised NDT procedure when performing an airworthiness limitation task. This AD also prohibits the use of earlier revisions of that NDT procedure.

AD 2021-14-08 requires revising the existing airplane flight manual (AFM) to include a procedure to reinforce the airspeed check during the take-off phase and provide instructions to abort take-off in certain cases. This AD was prompted by the development of a software update to the elevator aileron computer (ELAC) to address the unsafe condition. This proposed AD would continue to require the actions in AD 2021-14-08 and would require replacing each affected ELAC and removing the AFM revision required by AD 2021-14-08, as specified in a European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which is proposed for incorporation by reference. This proposed AD would also prohibit the installation of affected parts. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
