- Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Model BD–700–1A10 and BD–700–1A11 Airplanes. Docket No. FAA–2010–0959; Directorate Identifier 2010–NM–119–AD] RIN 2120–AA64. SUMMARY: We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This proposed AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as: “There have been two in-service reports of main landing gear (MLG) tire failure on landing, during which a flailing tire tread caused damage to No. 2 and No. 3 hydraulic system lines in the wing auxiliary spar area on the left side of the aircraft. This damage resulted in the loss of supply pressure to the inboard and outboard brakes, as the only remaining braking source available was the No. 3 hydraulic system accumulator. The degradation of the brake system performance could adversely affect the aircraft during landing.” The unsafe condition is loss of braking capability, which could reduce the ability of the flightcrew to safely land
the airplane. The proposed AD would require actions that are intended to address the unsafe condition described in the MCAI.
- Airworthiness Directives; Embraer—Empresa Brasileira de Aeronautica S.A. Model EMB–500 Airplanes. Docket No. FAA–2010–1023; Directorate Identifier 2010–CE–055–AD] RIN 2120–AA64. 14 CFR Part 39. SUMMARY: We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This proposed AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as: It has been detected a short circuit in harness W101 due to its interference with the main door mechanism. Further analysis of the affected region has also revealed the possibility of chafing between the same harness and the oxygen tubing. The chafing of the wiring harness against the oxygen tubing could lead to a short circuit of the wiring harness and a subsequent fire in the
airplane. Since this condition may occur in other airplanes of the same type and affects flight safety, a corrective action is required. Thus, sufficient reason exists to request compliance with this AD in the indicated time limit. The proposed AD would require actions that are intended to address the unsafe condition described in the MCAI.
- Flightcrew Member Duty and Rest Requirements. 14 CFR Parts 117 and 121,
Docket No. FAA–2009–1093; Notice No. 10–11, RIN 2120–AJ58. SUMMARY: The FAA published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on September 14, 2010, to amend its existing flight, duty and rest regulations applicable to certificate holders and their flightcrew members. The FAA has received several requests from stakeholders to extend the comment period for filing comments to the proposed rule. This notice provides the FAA’s response to those requests.
- Seventh Meeting—Special Committee 222: Inmarsat Aeronautical Mobile Satellite (Route) Services. SUMMARY: The FAA is issuing this notice to advise the public of a meeting of RTCA Special Committee 222: Inmarsat Aeronautical Mobile Satellite (Route) Services.
- Request for Public Comment, Morgantown Municipal Airport, Morgantown, WV. SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration is requesting public comment on the proposed release of 46.53 acres of land currently owned by the City of Morgantown, Sponsor for the Morgantown Municipal Airport, Morgantown, West Virginia. The parcel is located within the Sixth Ward District of the City of Morgantown, Morgantown, West Virginia. The site is a 47.00 acre portion of the larger Morgantown Municipal Airport property. The land is currently being used as a cross wind runway. It has been determined that this runway is no longer needed for safety or capacity. The property is not a vital part of, or necessary for the Sponsor’s operation and development of the Morgantown Airport. Once released, the land will change to a non-aeronautical use and will be transferred to the West Virginia Army National Guard (‘‘AR–WVARNG’’). Thereafter, AR–WVARNG will construct or cause the construction of and operate a West Virginia Army National Guard Readiness Center on the property. The development of this property will also bring the construction of a roadway and
utilities that will be needed for subsequent development of aviation facilities on a part of the airport that is now remote and without utilities or access. The airport land being released is not needed for airport development as shown on the Airport Layout Plan. Fair Market Value has been determined based upon an appraisal of the Property.
