Type: Notice
Date: 2017-05-26
Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Army, Corps of Engineers
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) announces the availability of a Public Review Final Feasibility Study with Integrated Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), for the Ala Wai Canal Project, Oahu, Hawaii. The Final Feasibility Study/EIS evaluates alternatives to manage flood risk within the Ala Wai watershed, which includes the neighborhoods of Makiki, Manoa, Palolo, Kapahulu, Moiliili, McCully, and Waikiki. It also documents the existing condition of environmental resources in areas considered for locating flood risk management features and potential impacts on those resources that could result from implementing each alternative. The State of Hawaii, Department of Land and Natural Resources is the non-Federal sponsor and the proposing agency for compliance with the Hawaii law on Environmental Impact Statements.
Walnuts Grown in California; Proposed Amendment to Marketing Order 984 and Referendum Order
Document Number: 2017-10676
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-05-26
Agency: Agricultural Marketing Service, Department of Agriculture
This rule proposes one amendment to Marketing Order No. 984 (order), which regulates the handling of walnuts grown in California, and provides growers with the opportunity to vote in a referendum to determine if they favor the change. This amendment was proposed by the California Walnut Board (Board), which is responsible for the local administration of the order and is comprised of walnut growers and handlers operating within the production area. The amendment would authorize the Board to borrow from a commercial lending institution to fund operations and marketing/research expenses. This proposed amendment is intended to reflect a customary business practice that will provide greater flexibility to the Board while increasing its effectiveness.
Proposed Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace, New Bern, NC
Document Number: 2017-10555
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-05-26
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend Class D and Class E airspace at Coastal Carolina Regional Airport (formally Craven County Regional Airport), New Bern, NC. The Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) part-time status would be removed from Class E airspace designated as an extension, as well as the segment using the New Bern VHF Omnidirectional Range/ Distance Measuring Equipment (VOR/DME) navigation aid used to describe the northeast and southwest extensions to the airport. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airport. This action also would update the geographic coordinates of the airport, update the airport's name, and make an editorial change replacing Airport/Facility Directory with the term Chart Supplement in the legal descriptions of associated Class D and E airspace.
Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace for Oskaloosa, IA
Document Number: 2017-10553
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-05-26
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to modify Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Oskaloosa Municipal Airport, Oskaloosa, IA, to accommodate new standard instrument approach procedures for instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airport. This action is necessary due to the decommissioning of the Oskaloosa non directional radio beacon (NDB), and cancellation of the NDB approach procedure, and would enhance the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport.
Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce plc Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2017-10440
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-05-26
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede airworthiness directive (AD) 2014-24- 08 that applies to all Rolls-Royce plc (RR) RB211-535E4-37, RB211- 535E4-B-37, and RB211-535E4-C-37 turbofan engines with certain low- pressure (LP) fuel filter-to-high-pressure (HP) fuel pump tube assemblies, or HP fuel pump-to-fuel flow governor (FFG) or FFG-to-HP pump inlet overspill return tube assemblies and flanged adaptor installed. AD 2014-24-08 requires replacing certain LP fuel filter-to- HP fuel pump tube assemblies. Since we issued AD 2014-24-08, fuel leaks have occurred at the flanged joints of the HP fuel pump-to-FFG tube assembly and FFG-to-HP pump inlet overspill return tube assembly. This proposed AD would retain the original AD requirements and also require installation of new HP fuel pump-to-FFG and FFG-to-HP pump inlet overspill return tube assemblies and flanged adaptor. We are proposing this AD to correct the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce Deutschland Ltd & Co KG Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2017-10439
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-05-26
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Rolls-Royce Deutschland Ltd & Co KG (RRD) model Tay 620-15 turbofan engines. This proposed AD was prompted by RRD recalculating the life limit for certain high-pressure compressor (HPC) stage 12 rotor disks. This proposed AD would require reducing the maximum approved life limit. We are proposing this AD to correct the unsafe condition on these products.

Date: 2017-05-26
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to establish Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Ashburn, GA, to accommodate new Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) serving Turner County Airport. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airport.
Amendment of Class D Airspace; Kingsville, TX
Document Number: 2017-10429
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-05-26
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action amends the legal description of Class D airspace extending up to 2,500 feet above the surface at Kingsville Naval Air Station (NAS), Kingsville, TX. This action is necessary due to the decommissioning of the Kingsville radio beacon (RBN), and cancellation of the RBN approach, and enhances the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airport. This action also updates the geographic coordinates of Kingsville Naval Air Station, Kingsville, TX, to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database.
Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Johnson City, TN
Document Number: 2017-10428
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-05-26
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to establish Class E airspace at Johnson City, TN, to accommodate new Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures (SIAPs) serving Johnson City Medical Center Heliport. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the heliport.
Proposed Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace; Fort Knox, KY, and Louisville, KY
Document Number: 2017-10427
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-05-26
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class D airspace by removing the Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) part-time status at Godman Army Airfield (AAF) Fort Knox, KY; and Bowman Field Airport, Louisville, KY. This action would also update the geographic coordinates of these airports in the associated Class D and E airspace descriptions. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at these airports.
Airworthiness Directives; B/E Aerospace Protective Breathing Equipment Part Number 119003-11 and Part Number 119003-21
Document Number: 2017-10409
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-05-26
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2016-11- 20, which applies to certain B/E Aerospace protective breathing equipment (PBE) that is installed on airplanes. AD 2016-11-20 requires replacing part number (P/N) 119003-11 PBE units. Since we issued AD 2016-11-20, we received a report that PBE units, P/N 119003-21, within a certain serial number range are made with candle tube material determined to have a low yield strength and may be volatile upon use or disposal. This proposed AD would retain the actions required in AD 2016-11-20 and would require inspecting and replacing P/N 119003-11 and 119003-21 PBE units. We are proposing this AD to correct the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Stemme AG Gliders
Document Number: 2017-10402
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-05-26
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Stemme AG Model S10-VT gliders (type certificate previously held by Stemme GmbH & Co. KG). This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by the aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as certain propeller front transmission gear wheels having insufficient material strength because of improper heat treatment during manufacturing. We are issuing this AD to require actions to address the unsafe condition on these products.
