Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-00700
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-01-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-00448
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-01-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 727, 727C, 727-100, 727-100C, 727- 200, and 727-200F series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of nuisance stick shaker activation while the airplane accelerated to cruise speed at the top of climb.

Request for Information Concerning Large Truck Crash Causal Factors Study
Document Number: 2020-00557
Type: Notice
Date: 2020-01-15
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
FMCSA seeks information on how best to design and conduct a study to identify factors contributing to all FMCSA reportable large truck crashes (towaway, injury and fatal). Methodologically, the Agency seeks information on how best to balance sample representativeness, comprehensive data sources, ranges of crash types, and cost efficiency. The methodology should also address the use of on-board electronic systems which can generate information about speeding, lane departure, and hard braking. The study should be designed to yield information that will help FMCSA and the truck safety community to identify activities and other measures likely to lead to significant reductions in the frequency, severity, and crash rate involving commercial motor vehicles. As practicable, the study shall rank such activities and measures by the reductions each would likely achieve, if implemented. This RFI supports a two-part process to gather information for the development of a Large Truck Crash Causal Factors Study (LTCCFS) and to promote transparency and innovation by enabling the public, academics, experts, and industry to comment on how best to conduct this study. This study will help improve FMCSA and its State partners' ability to: 1. Evaluate crashes involving large trucks and identify emerging trends; 2. Monitor crash trends and identify causes and contributing factors; and 3. Develop effective safety improvement policies and programs.

Amendment of Class E Airspace; Redding, CA
Document Number: 2020-00106
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-01-10
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action modifies Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D or Class E surface area, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Redding Municipal Airport, Redding CA. This action also removes Class E airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface; this airspace is wholly contained within the Rogue Valley en route airspace and duplication is not necessary. Additionally, this action updates the geographic coordinates of the airport to match the FAA's database. Lastly, this action removes references to the Redding VOR/DME and Lassen NDB from the airspace legal description, as well as the airspace extensions associated with the navigational aids.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-00059
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-01-10
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 787-8 and 787-9 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports that the cabin air compressor (CAC) outlet check valve failed due to fatigue of the aluminum flappers, and exposed the Y-duct to temperatures above its design limit. This proposed AD would require installing new inboard and outboard CAC outlet check valves on the left-side and right-side cabin air conditioning and temperature control system (CACTCS) packs. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
