MGMT520 - WEEK 2 ASSIGNMENT
1. Identify the administrative agency (full name, not just the acronym) which controls the regulation. Briefly explain why this agency and your proposed regulation interests you. If this proposed regulation will affect you or the business in which you are working, please explain how. It is not required that the proposed regulation affect you professionally or personally. You can use any regulation for this assignment so long as you are able to answer the questions posed here (Questions 1-5).
Airworthiness Directives: The Boeing Company Airplanes
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
Action: ...view middle of the document...
Also, explain briefly what you wish to accomplish with your comment.
I am in favor of the proposed repetitive inspections checks for blockage of the forward strut drain line in the 777-200 and -300 series airplanes equipped with Pratt and Whitney engines. In my opinion, I believe that doing such inspections could help the company identify the problem faster and come up with a quick solution. The safety of the passengers and your aircraft, especially the passengers, should be the biggest concern and most important fact. I hope you start with inspections soon enough. And if any problems are found, repairs must be performed approved by both: Boeing Company Airplanes and the FFA.
4. Provide the "deadline" (date) by which comments are (or were) due. If the due date has already passed, please provide when the deadline was. (NOTE: If you cannot find the answer to this question, you probably have not found a proposed regulation and you should look for a different one to complete your assignment.)
Comments must be received by September 22, 2014.
a. To what does your comment's submission legally entitle you? In other words, once you have submitted your comment, what will you be legally entitled to do later in the promulgation process (if you should choose to do so)?
Every administrative agency have a policy to afford the public an opportunity to participate in the rulemaking process. As a traveler, I agree with that policy since my safety and the safety of my family is my biggest concern. Knowing that something might go wrong in the plane, will be always in my mind by boarding one; and it can even change my mind, changing one airlines for another and therefore, the airline would lose customers, productivity and respect. I would give my opinion and concerns in such meetings; and also have evidence to make them notice of past incidents. On May 24, 2013, we issued AD 2013-11-14, Amendment 39-17474 (78 FR 35749, June 14, 2013), for certain The Boeing Company Model 777-200 and -300 series airplanes. AD 2013-11-14 currently requires repetitive general visual inspections of the strut forward dry bay for hydraulic fluid contamination, and related investigative and corrective actions if necessary. On April 12, 2011, we issued AD 2011-09-11, Amendment 39-16673 (76 FR 24354, May 2, 2011), for certain The Boeing Company Model 777-200 and -300 series airplanes. AD 2011-09-11 requires repetitive inspections for hydraulic fluid contamination of the interior of the strut disconnect assembly; repetitive inspections for discrepancies of the interior of the strut disconnect assembly, if necessary; repetitive inspections of the exterior of the strut disconnect assembly for cracks, if necessary; corrective action if necessary; and an optional terminating action for the inspections.
