July 9,2013

NOTICES

Noise Exposure Map Notice for Hilo International Airport, Hilo, Hawaii [FR
DOC# 2013-16451] SUMMARY: The FAA announces its determination that the
noise exposure maps submitted by Hawaii State Department of Transportation,
Airports Division (HDOT-A), for Hilo International Airport under the
provisions of 49 U.S.C. 47501 et. seq (Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement
Act) and 14 CFR part 150 are in compliance with applicable requirements.

Notice of Intent To Rule on Passenger Facility Charge (PFC) Application 11
-05-C-00-SFO to Impose and Use PFC Revenue at San Francisco International
Airport, San Francisco, California [FR DOC# 2013-16453] SUMMARY: The FAA
proposes to rule and invites public comment on the application to impose
and use PFC revenue at San Francisco International Airport (SFO), under the
provisions of the Aviation Safety and Capacity Expansion Act of 1990 (Title
IX of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990) (Pub. L. 101-508) and
Part 158 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (Title 14 CFR part 158).

Notice of Opportunity for Public Comment on Surplus Property Release at
Brunswick Executive Airport in Brunswick, ME [FR DOC# 2013-16462] SUMMARY:
Under the provisions of Title 49, U.S.C. 47153(d), notice is being given
that the FAA is considering a request from Midcoast Regional Redevelopment
Authority to waive the surplus property requirements for approximately 3.47
acres of airport property located at Brunswick Executive Airport in
Brunswick, ME. It has been determined through study and master planning
that the subject parcel will not be needed for aeronautical purposes and
would better serve the airport if used for aviation compatible, non-
aeronautical revenue generation. Full and permanent relief of the surplus
property requirements on this specific parcel will allow the airport and
its tenant on this parcels to enter into a long-term lease and begin making
infrastructure improvements. All revenues through the leasing of the parcel
will continue to be subject to the FAAs revenue- use policy and dedicated
to the maintenance and operation of the Brunswick Executive Airport.

 

PROPOSED RULES

Airworthiness Directives; Vulcanair S.p.A. Airplanes [FR DOC# 2013-16394]
SUMMARY: We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for
Vulcanair S.p.A. (type certificate previously held by Partenavia) Models P
68, P 68B, P 68C, P 68C-TC, P 68 “OBSERVER,” P68TC “OBSERVER,” and P68
“OBSERVER 2” airplanes that would supersede AD 2008-24-11, Amendment 39-
15751. 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 cracking and/or corrosion of the
wing spar, which could result in structural failure of the wing. We are
issuing this proposed AD to require actions to address the unsafe condition
on these products.

 

RULES

Airworthiness Directives; Various Restricted Category Helicopters [FR DOC#
2013-15946] SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for
various restricted category Model HH-1K, TH-1F, TH-1L, UH-1A, UH-1B, UH-1E,
UH- 1F, UH-1H, UH-1L, and UH-1P helicopters with certain main rotor hub
inboard strap fittings (fittings) installed. This AD requires a magnetic
particle inspection (MPI) of the fittings for a crack, and if there is a
crack, replacing the fitting with an airworthy fitting. This AD is prompted
by reports of cracked fittings on Bell model helicopters and the
determination that these same part-numbered fittings may be installed on
various restricted category helicopters. These actions are intended to
detect a crack in a fitting, which may lead to failure of a fitting, loss
of a main rotor blade, and subsequent loss of helicopter control.

Airworthiness Directives; Eurocopter Deutschland (Eurocopter) Helicopters
[FR DOC# 2013-16388] SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive
(AD) for Eurocopter Model MBB-BK117 A-3, MBB-BK117 A-4, MBB-BK117 B-1, and
MBB- BK117 C-2 helicopters with a Metro Aviation (Metro) vapor-cycle air
conditioning kit installed in accordance with Supplemental Type Certificate
(STC) No. SH3880SW. This AD requires repetitively inspecting the air
conditioning drive pulley (pulley) for looseness and properly installed
lockwire, and also requires reinstalling the pulley. This AD is prompted by
two reports of the pulley detaching from the rotor brake disc on the tail
rotor (T/R) driveshaft. These actions are intended to prevent separation of
the pulley, damage to the T/R driveshaft, and subsequent loss of control of
the helicopter.

Amendment of Restricted Areas R-2504A & R-2504B; Camp Roberts, CA, and
Restricted Area R-2530; Sierra Army Depot, CA [FR DOC# 2013-16449] SUMMARY:
This action amends the descriptions of restricted areas R- 2504A and R-
2504B, Camp Roberts, CA, and restricted area R-2530, Sierra Army Depot, CA,
by removing the abbreviation “PST” from the time of designation. This
amendment does not change the dimensions of, or activities conducted
within, R-2504A, R-2504B, and R-2530.
