Airworthiness Directives; Ipeco Pilot and Co-Pilot Seats
Document Number: 2019-15413
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-07-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to supersede airworthiness directive (AD) 2017-22-02, which applies to certain Ipeco Holdings Limited (Ipeco) pilot and co-pilot seats. AD 2017-22-02 requires modification and re- identification of the affected seats. Since the FAA issued AD 2017-22- 02, Ipeco has received reports that the tracklock spring modification required by AD 2017-22-02 does not adequately address the issue of unexpected seat movement during takeoff and landing and the FAA also determined the need to add additional seat part numbers (P/Ns) to the applicability. This proposed AD would continue to require modification and re-identification of the affected seats. This proposed AD would also require initial and repetitive inspections of the affected tracklock springs and, depending on the findings, replacement of the tracklock springs with a part eligible for installation. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Centers of Excellence for Domestic Maritime Workforce Training and Education Designation Program Guidance: Proposed New Policy and Information Collection Request
Document Number: 2019-15406
Type: Notice
Date: 2019-07-19
Agency: Maritime Administration, Department of Transportation
This notice provides interested parties with the opportunity to comment on the Maritime Administration's (MARAD) new program designating eligible and qualified training entities as Centers of Excellence for Domestic Maritime Workforce Training and Education (CoE). The National Defense Authorization Act of 2018 (the Act), provided the Secretary of Transportation with the discretionary authority to designate eligible and qualified entities as CoEs. CoE designations will serve to assist the maritime industry in obtaining and maintaining the highest quality workforce. On May 31, 2018, MARAD published a notice in the Federal Register seeking public comment regarding the development of a guide for applicants seeking CoE designation. MARAD received a total of eighteen comments which have been considered and are examined in the Supplementary Information section below. Now, MARAD is proposing to implement a voluntary program to identify and recommend qualified training providers for CoE designation. MARAD invites public comment on this new program and its application guidance.

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-15358
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-07-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 737-200, -200C, -300, -400, and -500 airplanes.

Revision to Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) Out Equipment and Use Requirements
Document Number: 2019-15248
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-07-18
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This interim final rule modifies the requirement that all aircraft equipped with Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast Out (ADS-B Out) must transmit at all times. This rulemaking provides an exception to ADS-B requirements, removing the transmission requirement for sensitive operations conducted by Federal, State and local government entities in matters of national defense, homeland security, intelligence and law enforcement. The changes provide relief to those Federal, State and local government agencies that operate aircraft equipped with ADS-B Out but need the ability to terminate the transmission signal when conducting sensitive national defense, homeland security, intelligence and law enforcement missions that could be compromised by transmitting real time identification and positional flight information over ADS-B. This rulemaking also allows the FAA to except certain aircraft from operating a transponder or transmitting ADS-B Out, when doing so would jeopardize Air Traffic Control (ATC) functions.

Partial Extension of Compliance Date for Entry-Level Driver Training
Document Number: 2019-14956
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-07-18
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA proposes to amend its December 8, 2016, final rule, ``Minimum Training Requirements for Entry-Level Commercial Motor Vehicle Operators'' (ELDT final rule), by extending the compliance date for two provisions from the rule. The date for training providers to upload entry-level driver training (ELDT) certification information into the Training Provider Registry (TPR) and for State Driver Licensing Agencies (SDLAs) to receive driver-specific ELDT information would be extended from February 7, 2020, to February 7, 2022. This action would provide FMCSA additional time to complete development of the electronic interface that will receive and store ELDT certification information from training providers and transmit that information to the SDLAs. The proposed extension would also provide SDLAs with sufficient time to modify their information technology (IT) systems and procedures, as necessary, to accommodate their receipt of driver- specific ELDT data from the TPR.
