      The Western Area Power Administration (Western), a Federal power marketing agency of the Department of Energy (DOE), announces its determination of the Post-2004 Marketable Resources (which consists of both capacity and energy) from the Salt Lake City Area Integrated Projects (SLCA/IP) developed under the requirements of Subpart C--Power Marketing Initiative of the Energy Planning and Management Program (Program) Final Rule. Western has evaluated hydrologic studies that indicate, most importantly, the need to reduce the energy component of the Marketable Resources for the 20 years of the contract period. In fiscal year (FY) 2005 (beginning October 1, 2004), the energy component of the Marketable Resources begins at its lowest level and then gradually increases over the next 5 years. It reaches a level in the fifth year that remains constant through the remainder of the contracting period, subject to change only under the terms of the contract. Firm electric service contracts (Contracts) between Western and its existing and new customers will permit delivery to begin with the October 2004 billing period and continue through the September 2024 billing period (Contract Period).

    • Airworthiness Directives; Aviointeriors S.p.A. Series 312 Seats
      Type
      Proposed Rule
      Length
      3 pages

      The FAA proposes to supersede an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for Aviointeriors S.p.A. (formerly ALVEN), series 312 seats. That AD currently requires initial and repetitive inspections of the seat central crossmember for cracks, and if necessary, replacing the crossmember with a new crossmember. This proposed AD would require the same actions and would add other crossmember part numbers for inspection. In addition, this proposed AD would replace the original design crossmembers with reinforced design crossmembers as optional terminating actions to the repetitive inspections. This proposed AD results from reports of 88 cracked seat central crossmembers and 60 aisle side crossmembers, to date, and from the introduction of reinforced seat crossmembers by the manufacturer. We are proposing this AD to prevent the loss of the structural integrity of the seat due to cracks in seat crossmembers.

    • Airworthiness Directives; Becker Flugfunkwerk GmbH AR 4201 VHF AM Transceivers
      Type
      Proposed Rule
      Length
      2 pages

      The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Becker Flugfunkwerk GmbH AR 4201 VHF AM transceivers. This proposed AD would require adding an aircraft flight manual (AFM) limitation to the Limitations Section of the AFM, and cockpit placard due to the intermittent malfunctioning of the transceiver, or removing the affected transceiver from service. This proposed AD results from reports of crewmembers having difficulty communicating with Air Traffic Control and other aircraft due to the AR 4201 VHF AM transceiver's inability to block interference from transmitters operating on frequencies other than those set in the transceiver. We are proposing this AD to prevent difficulty in communicating with Air Traffic Control and other aircraft due to intermittent malfunctioning of the transceiver.

    • Airworthiness Directives; Bell Helicopter Textron Canada Model 407 Helicopters
      Type
      Rule
      Length
      3 pages

      This amendment supersedes an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for Bell Helicopter Textron Canada (BHTC) Model 407 helicopters which requires a one-time replacement of certain oil cooler blower bearings. Also, the existing AD requires adding a limitation and caution to the rotorcraft flight manual (RFM) and inspecting, replacing, and lubricating certain bearings at specified intervals. This amendment adds certain segmented drive shaft bearings to the applicability and requires modifying the oil cooler blower inlet ducts and airflow shields and replacing certain bearings. Thereafter, this amendment requires removing the current temporary limitations and inserting revised limitations into the RFM. This amendment also requires revising the inspection and lubrication requirements. This amendment is prompted by several cases of bearing failure. The addition of certain segmented drive shaft bearings is due to two recent failures. The actions specified by this AD are intended to prevent failure of a bearing, loss of tail rotor drive, and a subsequent loss of directional control of the helicopter.

    • Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 737-600, -700, -700C, -800, and -900 Series Airplanes Equipped With Certain Honeywell Start Converter Units
      Type
      Rule
      Length
      6 pages

      This amendment adopts a new airworthiness directive (AD), applicable to certain Boeing Model 737-600, -700, -700C, -800, and -900 series airplanes equipped with certain Honeywell start converter units (SCU). This amendment requires replacement of the SCU of the auxiliary power unit (APU) located in the electrical and electronics (E/E) compartment with a new or modified SCU. This action is necessary to prevent overheating of the electrical connector of the SCU, which could create an ignition source and possible fire in the E/E compartment and cause damage to certain electrical wire bundles on the E2-2 shelf. Such damage could result in loss of power from the APU generator, failure of electrically powered airplane systems, and consequent reduction in the ability of the flight crew to control the airplane in certain adverse

    • Airworthiness Directives; CFM International, S.A. CFM56-2-C, -3 Series, and -5 Series Turbofan Engines
      Type
      Rule
      Length
      5 pages

      This amendment adopts a new airworthiness directive (AD), that applies to CFM International, S.A., CFM56-2-C, -3 series, and -5 series turbofan engines. This amendment requires removing from service main fuel pumps with bronze gear-stage bearings and installing main fuel pumps with bi-metal, aluminum/bronze bearings. This amendment results from several reports of main fuel pump bronze bearing failures. We are issuing this AD to prevent main fuel pump bearing failures resulting in fuel nozzle clogging, low pressure turbine (LPT) case burn-through, and damage to the airplane.

    • Airworthiness Directives; DG Flugzeugbau GmbH, Model DG-500MB Sailplanes
      Type
      Proposed Rule
      Length
      3 pages

      The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain DG Flugzeugbau GmbH, Model DG-500MB sailplanes. This proposed AD would require you to replace the engine pylon extension/ retraction Warner LA10 spindle drive with an improved designed Stross BSA 10 spindle drive and to modify the electrical system following applicable service information. This proposed AD is the result of mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by the airworthiness authority for Germany. We are issuing this proposed AD to prevent failure of the Warner LA10 spindle drive, which could result in the engine pylon not rising or lowering. This condition could cause an unstable engine pylon assembly during flight with loss of control of the sailplane.

    • Airworthiness Directives; Hartzell Propeller, Inc., McCauley Propeller Systems, and Sensenich Propeller Manufacturing Company, Inc. Propellers
      Type
      Proposed Rule
      Length
      3 pages

      The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Hartzell Propeller, Inc., McCauley Propeller Systems, and Sensenich Propeller Manufacturing Company, Inc. propellers. This proposed AD would require maintenance actions amounting to an overhaul of the affected propellers. This proposed AD results from the investigation of a failed propeller blade and subsequent inspections of various propeller models returned to service by Southern California Propeller Service, of Inglewood, CA. We are proposing this AD to prevent blade failure that could result in separation of a propeller blade and loss of control of the airplane.

    • Airworthiness Directives; McDonnell Douglas Model MD-11 and -11F Airplanes

      This document corrects an error that appeared in airworthiness directive (AD) 2004-01-16 that was published in the Federal Register on January 20, 2004 (69 FR 2659). The error resulted in the omission of the phrase ``as applicable.'' This AD is applicable to certain McDonnell Douglas Model MD-11 and -11F airplanes. This AD requires revising the wire connection stackups for the terminal strip of the generator feeder tail compartment of the auxiliary power unit (APU), and removing a nameplate, as applicable. For certain airplanes, this AD also requires replacing the terminal strips and revising the terminal hardware stackup for the feeder of the center cargo loading system.
