Parts and Accessories Necessary for Safe Operation; Application for an Exemption From Volvo Trucks of North America
Document Number: 2015-18172
Type: Notice
Date: 2015-07-24
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, Customs and Border Protection Bureau
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requests public comment on an application for exemption from Volvo Trucks of North America (Volvo) to allow the placement of rain and ambient light detection sensors on Volvo commercial motor vehicles (CMV) lower in the windshield than is currently permitted by the Agency's regulations in order to utilize a mounting location that allows the sensor to function correctly. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) currently require antennas, transponders, and similar devices to be located not more than 6 inches below the upper edge of the windshield, outside the area swept by the windshield wipers, and outside the driver's sight lines to the road and highway signs and signals. Volvo believes that mounting the sensor lower in the windshield will allow it to function properly while maximizing the external view of the road and maintaining an adequate forward facing field of view for the driver.

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2015-18152
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2015-07-24
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2012-15- 13, which applies to certain The Boeing Company Model 747-100B SUD, 747-300, 747-400, and 747-400D series airplanes; and Model 747-200B series airplanes having a stretched upper deck. AD 2012-15-13 currently requires inspections for cracking and discrepancies of certain fasteners; modification of the frame-to-tension-tie joints; repetitive post-modification inspections; related investigative and corrective actions if necessary; and repetitive inspections for cracking in the tension tie channels, and repair if necessary. For certain airplanes, AD 2012-15-13 also requires an inspection to determine if the angle is installed correctly, and re-installation if necessary; and an inspection at the fastener locations where the tension tie previously attached to the frame prior to certain modifications, and repair if necessary. Since we issued AD 2012-15-13, an evaluation indicated that the upper deck is subject to widespread fatigue damage (WFD). This proposed AD would add a new inspection for cracking in the tension tie channels and post-modification inspections of the modified tension ties for cracking, and repair if necessary. We are proposing this AD to prevent fatigue cracking of the tension ties, shear webs, and frames of the upper deck, which could result in rapid decompression and reduced structural integrity of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2015-18151
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2015-07-24
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 787-8 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports indicating that the ram air turbine (RAT) assembly may fail to operate if deployed at low airspeeds. This proposed AD would require replacing either the RAT pump and control module assembly or the entire RAT assembly. We are proposing this AD to prevent failure of the RAT assembly to operate at low air speeds. The volume fuse on the RAT assembly may be activated in-flight before the RAT is deployed. This may lead to improper pump hydraulic pressure offloading when the RAT is needed. Failure of the RAT to operate in an all engine out event would result in loss of control of the airplane.
Final Order 1050.1F Environmental Impact: Policies and Procedures
Document Number: 2015-18084
Type: Notice
Date: 2015-07-24
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has revised its procedures for implementing the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) by issuing Order 1050.1F, Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures. Order 1050.1F cancels Order 1050.1E, Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures. The revisions in Order 1050.1F include reorganization of the Order to make it easier to use, clarification of requirements, additions to the list of Categorical Exclusions (CATEXs), updating of policies and procedures to be consistent with recent guidance, addition of provisions for emergency actions, and updating of terminology to incorporate the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen). The FAA issued a notice and request for comment in the Federal Register on August 14, 2013 (78 FR 49596). All comments received were considered in the issuance of the final Order. This notice summarizes the changes made to Order 1050.1E and includes responses to substantive comments received.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Helicopters Deutschland GmbH (Formerly Eurocopter Deutschland GmbH) Helicopters
Document Number: 2015-18049
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2015-07-24
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Airbus Helicopters Deutschland GmbH (Airbus) (formerly Eurocopter Deutschland GmbH) Model MBB-BK 117C-2 helicopters with an external mounted hoist system wiring harness installed. This proposed AD would require inspecting the hoist control pendant wiring harness for chafing, and if there is chafing, before the next hoist operation, replacing the wiring harness. This proposed AD would also require a installing a protection sleeve on the hoist control pendant wiring harness. This proposed AD is prompted by an uncommanded hoist release involving chafing on the wiring harness of the hoist control pendant and on the wiring. The proposed actions are intended to prevent loss of an external load or person from the hoist resulting in injury to persons being lifted and loss of control of the helicopter.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2015-17978
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-07-24
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2004-13-02, which applied to certain The Boeing Company Model 747-100, -200B, and - 200F series airplanes. AD 2004-13-02 required repetitive inspections to find discrepancies in the upper and lower skins of the fuselage lap joints, and repair if necessary. This new AD adds post-repair inspections for cracking and corrosion, and repair if necessary; structural modification at the lap joints; and post-modification inspections for cracking and corrosion, and repair if necessary. This AD was prompted by an evaluation by the design approval holder (DAH) that indicates the longitudinal lap joints are subject to widespread fatigue damage (WFD). The actions mandated by this AD are necessary to reach the limit of validity (LOV). We are issuing this AD to detect and correct fatigue cracking in the upper and lower skins of the fuselage lap joints, which could result in sudden fracture and failure of a lap joint and rapid in-flight decompression of the airplane fuselage.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2015-17977
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-07-24
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 98-22-10 for certain The Boeing Company Model 737-100, -200, -200C, and -300 series airplanes. AD 98-22-10 required repetitive inspections for cracking of the aft frame and frame support structure of the forward service doorway, and repair if necessary. AD 98-22-10 also provided an optional terminating action for the repetitive inspection requirements of that AD. This new AD requires new inspections and adds airplanes to the applicability; for certain airplanes, this new AD provides an optional preventive modification, which terminates the repetitive inspections. This AD was prompted by reports of fatigue cracking of the aft frame and frame support structure of the forward service doorway around the six doorstop fittings, and a determination that inspections are needed in additional locations and that additional airplanes might be subject to the identified unsafe condition. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct fatigue cracking of the aft frame and frame support structure of the forward service doorway around the six doorstop fittings, which could result in door deflection and loss of pressurization.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2015-17956
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-07-24
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus Model A318, A319, A320, and A321 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of wear of the trimmable horizontal stabilizer actuator (THSA). This AD requires repetitive inspections of the THSA for damage, and replacement if necessary; and replacement of the THSA after reaching a certain life limit. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct wear on the THSA, which would reduce the remaining life of the THSA, possibly resulting in premature failure and consequent reduced control of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes
Document Number: 2015-17937
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-07-24
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model BD-100-1A10 (Challenger 300) airplanes. This AD was prompted by testing of the spoiler electronic control unit (SECU) software for an upgrade, which revealed a timing error between the command and monitor channels. This AD requires revising the maintenance or inspection program to incorporate repetitive operational tests of the aileron disconnect system, and corrective action if necessary. This AD also requires modification and reidentification of the SECU, which would terminate the repetitive operational tests. We are issuing this AD to prevent a timing error in the SECU software, which, in combination with failure of the roll disconnect switch, could result in complete loss of spoiler functionality and consequent reduced controllability of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2015-17935
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-07-24
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2012-13-06, for all Airbus Model A300 series airplanes and all 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 2012-13-06 required a one-time detailed inspection to determine the length of the fire shut-off valve (FSOV) bonding leads and for contact or chafing of the wires, and corrective actions if necessary. This new AD requires a new one-time detailed inspection of the FSOV bonding leads to ensure that the correct bonding leads are inspected, and corrective action if necessary. This AD was prompted by a determination that the description of the inspection area specified in the service information was misleading; therefore, some operators might have inspected incorrect bonding leads. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct contact or chafing of wires and the bonding leads, which, if not detected, could be a source of sparks in the wing trailing edge, and could lead to an uncontrolled engine fire.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2015-17934
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-07-24
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 98-13-23 for certain 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 98-13-23 required inspections to detect corrosion and cracking of the lower horizontal stabilizer cutout longeron, the corner fitting, the skin strap, and the outer skin; and repair, if necessary. This new AD reduces the compliance times and repetitive intervals, and changes the inspection procedures. This AD was prompted by the determination that the risk of cracking is higher than initially determined. We are issuing this AD to prevent cracking of the lower horizontal stabilizer cutout longeron, the corner fitting, the skin strap, and the outer skin, which could result in reduced structural integrity of the horizontal-stabilizer cutout longeron.
Airworthiness Directives; BAE Systems (Operations) Limited Airplanes

Document Number: 2015-17973
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2015-07-23
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service
NHTSA is issuing this ANPRM following a July 10, 2014 grant of a petition for rulemaking from Ms. Marianne Karth and the Truck Safety Coalition (petitioners) regarding possible amendments to the Federal motor vehicle safety standards (FMVSSs) relating to rear impact (underride) guards. The petitioners request that NHTSA require underride guards on vehicles not currently required by the FMVSSs to have guards, notably, single unit trucks, and improve the standards' requirements for all guards, including guards now required for heavy trailers and semitrailers. Today's ANPRM requests comment on NHTSA's estimated cost and benefits of requirements for underride guards on single unit trucks, and for retroreflective material on the rear and sides of the vehicles to improve the conspicuity of the vehicles to other motorists. Separately, NHTSA plans to issue a notice of proposed rulemaking proposing to upgrade the requirements for all guards.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2015-17955
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2015-07-23
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 787 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by the disclosure that the inner diameters of some batches of landing gear pins were not shot peened in accordance with design specifications and need to be replaced. This proposed AD would require inspection for improperly manufactured landing gear pins, and replacement if necessary. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct insufficient shot peening that could lead to stress corrosion cracking and failure of the landing gear pin, and cause landing gear collapse and inability to control the airplane at high speeds on the ground.
Airworthiness Directives; Bell Helicopter Textron, Inc.
Document Number: 2015-17953
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-07-23
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bell Helicopter Textron, Inc. (Bell), Model 204B, 205A, 205A-1, and 212 helicopters. This AD requires removing a certain part-numbered main rotor (M/R) blade grip (grip) from service. This AD is prompted by an error in a parts manufacturer approval (PMA) that incorrectly allows installation of the grips on the Bell Model 212. The actions specified in this AD are intended to prevent grip failure, separation of the M/R blade, and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Helicopters (Previously Eurocopter France) Helicopters
Document Number: 2015-17952
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2015-07-23
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
We propose to supersede airworthiness directive (AD) 2014-07- 52 for certain Airbus Helicopters (previously Eurocopter France) Model AS350B, AS350BA, AS350B1, AS350B2, AS350B3, AS350C, AS350D, AS350D1, AS355E, AS355F, AS355F1, AS355F2, AS355N, and AS355NP helicopters. AD 2014-07-52 currently requires repetitively inspecting certain reinforcement angles of the rear structure to tailboom junction frame (reinforcement angles) for a crack at 10 hour time-in-service (TIS) intervals, repairing any cracked reinforcement angle, and allows an optional repetitive inspection with a 165 hour TIS inspection interval as a terminating action for the 10 hour TIS inspections. This proposed AD would retain the inspection requirements of AD 2014-07-52 and require the inspection of the area around each reinforcement angle screw hole as terminating action to the 10 hour TIS inspections. These proposed actions are intended to detect a crack in the reinforcement angle, which if not corrected, could result in loss of the tailboom and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2015-17932
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2015-07-23
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2013-22- 11, which applies to certain The Boeing Company Model 747-400 and -400D series airplanes. AD 2013-22-11 currently requires repetitive inspections to detect cracks in the floor panel attachment fastener holes of certain upper deck floor beam upper chords, repetitive inspections, corrective actions if necessary, and replacement of the upper deck floor beam upper chords. Since we issued AD 2013-22-11, we received a report that certain fastener holes in the upper deck floor beam upper chords may not have been inspected in accordance with AD 2013-22-11. This proposed AD would add additional repetitive inspections for cracks for certain airplanes, and corrective actions if necessary. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct fatigue cracking in certain upper chords of the upper deck floor beam, which could become large and cause the floor beams to become severed and result in rapid decompression or reduced controllability of the airplane.
Pipeline Safety: Pipeline Damage Prevention Programs
Document Number: 2015-17259
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-07-23
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, Indian Health Service
Pursuant to the Pipeline Inspection, Protection, Enforcement, and Safety (PIPES) Act of 2006, this final rule establishes review criteria for State excavation damage prevention law enforcement programs as a prerequisite for PHMSA to conduct an enforcement proceeding against an excavator in the absence of an adequate enforcement program in the State where a pipeline damage prevention violation occurs. This final rule amends the pipeline safety regulations to establish the following: Criteria and procedures for determining the adequacy of State pipeline excavation damage prevention law enforcement programs; an administrative process for making State adequacy determinations; the Federal requirements PHMSA will enforce in States with inadequate excavation damage prevention law enforcement programs; and the adjudication process for administrative enforcement proceedings against excavators where Federal authority is exercised. The development of the review criteria and the subsequent determination of the adequacy of State excavation damage prevention law enforcement programs is intended to encourage States to develop effective excavation damage prevention law enforcement programs to protect the public from the risk of pipeline ruptures caused by excavation damage and allow for Federal administrative enforcement action in States with inadequate enforcement programs.

Airworthiness Directives; Pratt & Whitney Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2015-17710
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-07-21
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Pratt & Whitney (PW) JT8D-217C and JT8D-219 turbofan engines. This AD was prompted by reports of cracking in the low-pressure turbine (LPT) shaft. This AD requires removing affected LPT shafts from service using a drawdown plan. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the LPT shaft, which could lead to an uncontained engine failure and damage to the airplane.
Amendment of Class B Airspace; New Orleans, LA
Document Number: 2015-17709
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-07-20
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
This action amends Class B airspace at the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport, New Orleans, LA, by removing reference to the Instrument Landing System (ILS) Runway 10 Outer Compass Locator (LOM) from the text header information and surface area (Area A) description and replacing it in the Area A description with the geographic latitude/longitude coordinates of the LOM. This change is necessary due to the planned decommissioning of the LOM navigation aid. The Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport and New Orleans Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base (Alvin Callender Field) airport names and airport reference point (ARP) geographic coordinates are also updated. The St. Charles and Lakefront airports, used in the Class B description, are added in the legal description text header information, as well as, the Harvey VHF Omnidirectional Range/Tactical Air Navigation (VORTAC) navigation aid. Lastly, general editing of the legal description is accomplished to improve clarity. These changes are editorial only to match existing FAA aeronautical database information and do not alter the current charted boundaries or altitudes or the ATC procedures for the New Orleans Class B airspace area.
Airworthiness Directives; General Electric Company Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2015-17703
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-07-20
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all General Electric Company (GE) GEnx turbofan engine models. This AD was prompted by reports of GEnx-1B and GEnx-2B engines experiencing power loss in ice crystal icing (ICI) conditions. This AD precludes the use of full authority digital engine control (FADEC) software, version B175 or earlier, in GEnx-1B engines, and the use of FADEC software, version C065 or earlier, in GEnx-2B engines. We are issuing this AD to prevent engine failure, loss of thrust control, and damage to the airplane.

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2015-17688
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2015-07-20
Agency: Historic Preservation, Advisory Council, African Development Foundation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 737-100, -200, -200C, -300, -400, -500 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of cracked antenna support channels, skin cracking underneath the number 2 very high frequency (VHF) antenna, and cracking in the frames attached to the internal support structure. This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections to determine the condition of the skin and the internal support structure, and follow-on actions including corrective action as necessary. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct skin cracking of the fuselage which could result in separation of the number 2 VHF antenna from the airplane and rapid depressurization of the cabin.
