RECALLS 2000+ CRANKSHAFTS...
The ongoing controversy surrounding Lycoming crankshafts took a new
twist Monday as the company issued Mandatory Service Bulletin (MSB)
566, which greatly widens the net draping a crankshaft issue
previously limited to high-horsepower six-cylinder engines (often
found in high-stress turbocharged applications). The new MSB recalls
crankshafts in more than 1000 engines manufactured, rebuilt,
overhauled or repaired since March 1, 1999. In addition, some 1227
crankshafts not affiliated with a specific engine serial number are
also affected. This is a group of engines distinct from the set of
high-power, six-cylinder Lycomings that have been subject to a
previous recall and Airworthiness Directive (AD) for crankshaft
PROBLEM, BROADER SCOPE...
Lycoming said that a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NRPM) would be
issued by Friday with an AD to follow, making the new MSB truly
mandatory for Part 91 operators. According to Lycoming president Ian
Walsh, "We had enough incidences to finally decide that all cranks
with the same 'heat code' manufactured by Interstate should be
recalled." These crankshafts are found in a wide array of Lycoming
six- and four-cylinder engines, even some low-power, 180-hp O-360
applications. Crankshafts for the high-power engines that were caught
in the previous recall are not affected. Affected crankshafts have a
serial number starting in V5379, although not all cranks in that
series are covered under the MSB. More...
This MSB comes on the heels of Lycoming's loss of a lawsuit sought by
Interstate Forging in Navasota, Texas, alleging that Lycoming had
improperly specified vanadium to be added to the crank alloy. Lycoming
claimed that Interstate had improperly manufactured the cranks and
that the addition of vanadium was not at fault. The jury verdict
awarded Interstate $96 million. Lycoming has appealed the decision.
Marty Rose, an attorney who defended Interstate in Texas, offered
comments on Lycoming's latest move. "Seems rather obvious that they
learned a lesson from our jury verdict in Texas because the jury found
the problem was the vanadium," he said. "And now they're pulling all
the crankshafts that they had manufactured with vanadium added."
WHAT IT MEANS
Lycoming claims to have all the cranks in hand, produced by new vendor
Louisville Forge in Georgetown, K.Y., to replace the affected parts
without an interruption of normal programs. If your engine has an
affected crankshaft, Lycoming will replace the crank at no cost and,
"when authorized by Lycoming," will reimburse owners for the removal
and replacement labor according to Lycoming's current Removal and
Installation Labor Allowance Guidebook (SSP-875). More...

ACTS ON GA SECURITY...
The spending bill for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is in
play this week in Washington, and the policy-watchers at AOPA are raising a red flag -- some senators are
submitting amendments that would make GA pilots very unhappy. The
worst one says anyone who negligently violates Washington's restricted
flight zone leading to the evacuation of a public building could be
slapped with a $100,000 fine, confiscation of the aircraft, and a
five-year loss of flying privileges. New Mexico Senators Pete Domenici
Bingaman sponsored this amendment, and AOPA already is talking to
them. "The proposed penalty is extraordinarily harsh -- too harsh in
fact -- but it's clear that members of Congress want to get every
pilot's attention that they will not accept any more excuses for these
transgressions," AOPA President Phil Boyer said on Tuesday.
CALLS FOR FURTHER STUDY
Less threatening is an amendment calling for a government study of GA
security, proposed by Senators Hillary R. Clinton (D-N.Y.) and Richard
Durbin (D-Ill.). The study would examine the potential for GA aircraft
to be used as weapons against high-risk sites and would check the
overall security of GA airports. It would also assess what technology
is available to easily track GA aircraft and prevent aircraft theft.
"We would welcome an unbiased study," Boyer said, "because we are
convinced from our own independent research that within the list of
risks and threats to the American population, GA will rank very low."
Boyer's assessment seems to be in line with that of Michael Chertoff,
who took over the Department of Homeland Security in February.

LET THE (LABOR) GAMES BEGIN...
To some observers, contract negotiations between the FAA and its air
traffic controllers are shaping up to be the most divisive,
confrontational and acrimonious talks since President Ronald Reagan
fired striking controllers in 1981 -- and the latest round of
bargaining hasn't even begun yet. The two sides don't formally sit
down until next week but in back-to-back news teleconferences, FAA
Administrator Marion Blakey and John Carr, president of the National
Air Traffic Controllers Association (NATCA), each promised courteous
and productive talks while delivering (sometimes) carefully worded but
plainly pointed barbs at their counterparts. "Frankly, I'm surprised
she stooped so low so soon," Carr said of Blakey's comparison between
the wages and working conditions of controllers versus firefighters
and police officers, who are generally paid less and who, Blakey
noted, "put their lives on the line" on the job. Even the backdrop of
the teleconference had its share of drama. More...
NATCA, SHE SAID, HE SAID...
Blakey told reporters that, "We can't afford an agreement like 1998."
The existing contract, signed under a previous administrator and
extended by her two years ago, is a "bad deal" that costs too much.
She said the average controller's annual pay package, excluding
retirement benefits, is now more than $165,000 and that some make more
than $200,000 a year. Blakey also claims the contract gives the union
"de facto control" over scheduling and staffing levels. NATCA's Carr
vehemently denied that the union had seized control of staffing and
shifting, and offered to pay Blakey or any of the reporters taking
part in his teleconference $1 million if they could find within the
wording of the existing contract proof the union was granted such
IF NO AGREEMENT IS REACHED
Blakey and Carr both pledged to take the high road during the talks,
but it's the vantage point that creates the perception and while the
two may be approaching a problem from opposite sides of the coin there
may be more obstacles. "We don't think these negotiations need to be
contentious," said Blakey. Carr said he was entering the negotiations
"with an open mind and a very positive attitude." But the two sides
have different ideas on what will happen if the talks fail to achieve
a mutual agreement. According to the FAA's legal interpretation, if
the two sides reach an impasse, it will be up to Congress to pass
judgment on the deal. If Congress fails to come up with a solution,
the FAA says it has the authority to impose its contract on the union.
Carr disagrees and that particular disagreement is already before the

OKS NEW TEXAS AIRPORT
When airports normally are closing down at a quick pace around the
country, it's always a pleasure to find a new site for general
aviation. This week, the FAA approved the opening up of the private South
Waller County Airport near Houston for public use. The developer
will start out by paving 4,500 feet of runway, and plans to build
hangars and a restaurant and eventually accommodate up to 1,000
business and personal aircraft. "We believe this airport will be a
tremendous asset for the community," airport spokesman Drew Coats said
in a news release on Tuesday. "The airport will provide needed
transportation infrastructure to the public without using public
money. It will stimulate the economy, create good jobs and provide a
variety of educational opportunities for kids." More...
MEDICINE CITED IN FATAL CRASH
A pilot who died in the crash of his twin Cessna 441 had 10 times the
normal dose of an over-the-counter sedating antihistamine in his
blood, the NTSB said it in its final report, filed last week. "It is probable
that the pilot's performance and judgment were substantially impaired
by his very high blood level of chlorpheniramine," the NTSB said. The
airplane had departed from its home base, Boca Raton (Fla.) Airport,
on Dec. 30, 2003, headed for Palm Beach International Airport, 18
miles away. The pilot requested a practice ILS approach, but
disappeared from radar about three miles from the airport. Witnesses
saw the airplane descend and impact a canal. The 77-year-old pilot had
an airline transport certificate. More...

FLIES JET NO. 4
Eclipse Aviation flew its fourth conforming test aircraft for the
first time on Saturday. N505EA took off at 1:44 p.m. from the
Albuquerque (N.M.) International Sunport, climbed to 15,000 feet and
reached 160 knots. The aircraft flew for 43 minutes and completed
initial tests of flap operation, pressurization, and handling
characteristics. 5EA is the first of two beta-test jets that will be
tested under accelerated usage conditions to ensure reliability and
functionality, the company said. "With four out of five of our flight
test aircraft now in the air, we are generating rich data and
invaluable learnings every day that will allow us to continue to move
aggressively towards FAA certification next year,'' CEO Vern Raburn
said in a news release. More...
ON WALTON CRASH
The NTSB has released its preliminary report on the June 27 crash in Wyoming that killed Wal-Mart heir
John Walton. According to the report, Walton took off from Runway 19
at Jackson Hole Airport in a two-place CGS Hawk Arrow, flew a pattern
at about 700 to 900 feet, and shortly after turning onto the base leg,
began a nose-low descent and impacted the ground. He was in radio
contact with the control tower and did not report any problems, and
initial inspection of the aircraft has not revealed any evidence of
mechanical or structural failure, the NTSB said. Meanwhile, Chuck
Slusarczyk, owner of CGS Aviation, told The Associated Press on Monday that judging from
photos and an eyewitness account, the fuselage cover did not seem to
be on the aircraft during the flight. "It's not designed to fly
without a fuselage cover," Slusarczyk said. More...
