Airworthiness Directives; Fokker Services B.V. Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-01527
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-02-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Fokker Services B.V. Model F28 Mark 0070 and 0100 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a determination that new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations are necessary. This proposed AD would require revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Viking Air Limited (Type Certificate Previously Held by Bombardier, Inc.; Canadair Limited) Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-01524
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-02-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Viking Air Limited Model CL-215-6B11 (CL-215T Variant) and CL- 215-6B11 (CL-415 Variant) airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report that a supplier fabricated Teflon parts with a charge of 15 percent fiberglass content instead of the specified 5 percent fiberglass content. This proposed AD would require repetitive detailed visual inspections of the aileron control system cables and flap interconnect system cables for damage or disconnected cables, corrective actions if necessary, and replacement of the Teflon parts in the aileron control systems, aileron/rudder interconnect, and aileron power unit beam. The replacement of these parts would terminate the repetitive inspections. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Learjet, Inc. Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-01500
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-02-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2017-11- 09, which applies to certain Learjet, Inc. (Learjet), Model 60 airplanes. AD 2017-11-09 requires a one-time inspection of the fuselage skin for corrosion and, as necessary, additional related inspections and corrective actions. Since we issued AD 2017-11-09, we identified an error in the fluorescent dye penetrant inspection of the fuselage skin and an ambiguity in the compliance time for the fluorescent dye penetrant inspection. We are proposing this AD to clarify the compliance time and correct an error for the fluorescent dye penetrant inspection of the fuselage skin.
Amendment of Class E Airspace; Jackman, ME, and Revocation of Class E Airspace; Newton Field, ME
Document Number: 2019-01492
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-02-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action amends Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Newton Field, Jackman, ME, to accommodate new area navigation (RNAV) global positioning system (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures serving the airport. Also, this action removes duplicative Class E airspace for Newton Field, ME. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at this airport. This action also updates the geographic coordinates of this airport to be in concert with the FAA's aeronautical database.
Posting of Station Licenses and Related Information
Document Number: 2019-01491
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-02-08
Agency: Federal Communications Commission, Agencies and Commissions
In this document, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC or Commission) eliminates provisions of our rules that require broadcasters to post and maintain copies of their licenses and related information in specific locations. These rules have become redundant and obsolete now that licensing information is readily accessible online through the Commission's databases, including CDBS, LMS, and ULS. It therefore finds that eliminating these rules, which apply in some form to all broadcast licensees, will serve the public interest.

Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-02-08
Agency: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Agencies and Commissions, Federal Reserve System, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Department of Treasury, Department of the Treasury
The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Board), and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) are inviting public comment on a notice of proposed rulemaking (proposal) that would provide for a simple measure of capital adequacy for certain community banking organizations, consistent with section 201 of the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act. Under the proposal, most depository institutions and depository institution holding companies that have less than $10 billion in total consolidated assets, that meet risk-based qualifying criteria, and that have a community bank leverage ratio (as defined in the proposal) of greater than 9 percent would be eligible to opt into a community bank leverage ratio framework. Such banking organizations that elect to use the community bank leverage ratio and that maintain a community bank leverage ratio of greater than 9 percent would not be subject to other risk-based and leverage capital requirements and would be considered to have met the well capitalized ratio requirements for purposes of section 38 of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act and regulations implementing that section, as applicable, and the generally applicable capital requirements under the agencies' capital rule.
