Agency Requests for Renewal of a Previously Approved Information Collection: Small Business Transportation Resource Center (SBTRC) Regional Field Offices Intake Form (DOT F 4500)
Document Number: 2016-02369
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-02-08
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council
The OSDBU invites the public to comment about our intention to request the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) approval to renew an information collection. The collection involves the use of the SBTRC Regional Field Offices Intake Form (DOT F 4500). On November 12, 2015, OSDBU published a 60-day notice in the Federal Register (Vol. 80, No. 218) (Formerly Docket Number DOT-OST-2012-0080), informing the public of OSDBU's intention to extend an approved information collection. The collection involves the use of the Regional Field Offices Intake Form (DOT F 4500), which documents the type of assistance provided to each small business that is enrolled in the program database. The information will be used to ascertain whether the program is providing services to its constituency, the small business community, and is done so in a fair and equitable manner. The information collected is necessary to determine whether small businesses are participating in DOT funded and DOT assisted opportunities. We are required to publish this notice in the Federal Register by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, Public Law 104-13.

Qualification of Drivers; Exemption Applications; Vision
Document Number: 2016-02367
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-02-08
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, Customs and Border Protection Bureau
FMCSA announces its denial of 345 applications from individuals who requested an exemption from the Federal vision standard applicable to interstate truck and bus drivers and the reasons for the denials. FMCSA has statutory authority to exempt individuals from the vision requirement if the exemptions granted will not compromise safety. The Agency has concluded that granting these exemptions does not provide a level of safety that will be equivalent to, or greater than, the level of safety maintained without the exemptions for these commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers.
Qualification of Drivers; Exemption Applications; Vision
Document Number: 2016-02366
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-02-08
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, Customs and Border Protection Bureau
FMCSA announces receipt of applications from 20 individuals for exemption from the vision requirement in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. They are unable to meet the vision requirement in one eye for various reasons. The exemptions will enable these individuals to operate commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) in interstate commerce without meeting the prescribed vision requirement in one eye. If granted, the exemptions would enable these individuals to qualify as drivers of commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) in interstate commerce.

Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards; Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment
Document Number: 2016-02268
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-02-08
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service
NHTSA is amending the side marker requirements contained in the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) on lamps, reflective devices and associated equipment for vehicles 80 inches or more in width and less than 30 feet long. This final rule adopts the amendments proposed in the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM), published on December 4, 2012. These amendments will restore the side marker photometry requirements for motor vehicles under thirty feet in length that were in place prior to the 2007 final rule that reorganized the standard. Restoration of the side marker requirements will have no negative impact on safety or function and will allow motor vehicle manufacturers to avoid unnecessary modifications to their side marker lamps with no added safety or functional benefit.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-02193
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-02-08
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 737-600, -700, -700C, -800, -900, and -900ER series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of wire chafing damage, which caused an electrical arc to an adjacent hydraulic tube located on the forward bulkhead of the main landing gear (MLG) wheel well, resulting in a hole in a hydraulic tube and consequent total loss of system B hydraulic fluid. This proposed AD would require an inspection for chafing damage of wire bundles and a hydraulic tube in the right side of the MLG wheel well, and corrective action if necessary; and installation of clamps between the wire bundles and hydraulic tube. We are proposing this AD to prevent chafing damage, which could result in electrical arcing that can cause a hole in the hydraulic tube and consequent loss of hydraulic fluid, possibly resulting in a fire in the MLG wheel well.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-01580
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-01-28
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus Model A319, A320, and A321 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report that a main landing gear (MLG) door could not be closed due to rupture of the actuator fitting. Later reports indicated that the forward monoblock fitting of the MLG door actuator (referred to as the nerve area) could be damaged after rupture of the actuator fitting. This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections of the MLG door actuator fitting and its components for cracking, and corrective actions if necessary. This proposed AD would also require eventual replacement of all affected MLG door actuator fittings with new monoblock fittings, which would terminate the repetitive inspections. We are proposing this AD to prevent rupture of the door actuator fittings, which could result in detachment of an MLG door and subsequent exterior damage and consequent reduced structural integrity of the airplane.
Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace, Shelton, WA
Document Number: 2016-01503
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-01-28
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
This action proposes to establish Class E airspace at Sanderson Field Airport, Shelton, WA, to accommodate new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures developed at the airport. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport.
Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace, Revocation of Class E Airspace; Chico, CA
Document Number: 2016-01502
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-01-28
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
This action modifies Class D airspace, Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, and removes Class E surface area airspace designated as an extension at Chico Municipal Airport, Chico, CA. The FAA found it necessary to amend the airspace area by increasing the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface for the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations for arriving and departing aircraft at the airport. The FAA found no standard instrument approach procedures requiring Class E surface area airspace designated as an extension to Class D airspace. This action changes from navigation aids to geographic coordinate references in the legal description and updates the geographic coordinates of Chico Municipal and Ranchaero Airports for the Class D and E airspace areas noted above.
Amendment of Class E Airspace; Boise, ID
Document Number: 2016-01501
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-01-28
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
This action modifies Class E surface area airspace designated as an extension to Class C airspace, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Boise Air Terminal/Gowen Field Airport, formerly Boise Air Terminal (Gowen Field), Boise, ID. After reviewing the airspace, the FAA found standard instrument approach procedures are not fully contained in controlled airspace, thereby necessitating airspace redesign for the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport. This action also corrects the name of the airport to match the FAAs aeronautical database.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-00949
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-01-28
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 96-18-06 for certain Airbus Model A320-211 and -231 airplanes. AD 96-18-06 required visual inspections to detect cracks of the pressurized floor fittings at frame 36, and renewal of the zone protective finish or replacement of fittings with new fittings if necessary. Since we issued AD 96-18- 06, an extended service goal analysis by the manufacturer revealed that the compliance times and repetitive inspection intervals should be reduced to meet the design service goal. This AD retains the requirements of AD 96-18-06, with reduced compliance times and repetitive inspection intervals. This AD also adds Model A320-212 airplanes to the applicability. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct fatigue cracking in the pressurized floor fittings at frame 36, which could result in failure of a floor fitting and subsequent depressurization of the fuselage.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2016-00611
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-01-28
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 98-20-27 for all Airbus Model A300 B4-600, B4-600R, and F4-600R series airplanes, and Model A300 C4-605R Variant F airplanes (collectively called Model A300-600 series airplanes). AD 98-20-27 required repetitive inspections to detect fatigue cracking of the wing top skin at the front spar joint; and a follow-on eddy current inspection and repair, if necessary. This new AD reduces the inspection compliance time and intervals, and expands the inspection area of the wing top skin at the front spar joint. This AD was prompted by reports of cracking of the wing top skin in an area not required for inspection by AD 98-20-27. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct fatigue cracking of the wing top skin at the front spar joint; such fatigue cracking could result in reduced structural integrity of the airplane.
