Airworthiness Directives; Hamilton Sundstrand Corporation Propellers
Document Number: 2020-01338
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-01-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Hamilton Sundstrand Corporation (Hamilton Sundstrand) 54H60 model propellers. This proposed AD was prompted by the failure of a propeller blade that resulted in the loss of the airplane. This proposed AD would require initial and repetitive eddy current inspections (ECI) of the affected propeller blades and replacement of the propeller blades that fail the inspection. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

Date: 2020-01-27
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain ATRGIE Avions de Transport R[eacute]gional Model ATR72 airplanes.

This AD was prompted by a report indicating that two elevator booster assemblies experienced significant hydraulic fluid leaks, caused by fatigue cracks in the actuator cylinder. This AD requires an inspection to determine the part number of the elevator booster actuator, repetitive ultrasonic inspections of the actuator to detect cracking, and replacement of cracked elevator booster assemblies. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

This AD requires repetitive functional tests of the hydraulic reservoir air pressurization lines, and repair or replacement if necessary, as specified in a European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which is incorporated by reference. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Proposed Amendment, Establishment, and Revocation of Multiple Air Traffic Service (ATS) Routes in the Vicinity of Waukon, IA
Document Number: 2020-00997
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-01-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend six VHF Omnidirectional Range (VOR) Federal airways, V-2, V-77, V-138, V-218, V-246 and V-398; establish two low altitude Area Navigation (RNAV) routes, T-348 and T- 389; and remove one VOR Federal airway, V-411, in the vicinity of Waukon, IA. The Air Traffic Service (ATS) route modifications are necessary due to the planned decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Waukon, IA, VOR/Distance Measuring Equipment (VOR/DME) navigation aid (NAVAID). The NAVAIDs provide navigation guidance for portions of the affected air traffic service (ATS) routes. The VOR is being decommissioned as part of the FAA's VOR Minimum Operational Network (MON) program.
Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Tahlequah, OK
Document Number: 2020-00996
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-01-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Tahlequah Municipal Airport in Tahlequah, OK. The FAA is proposing this action as the result of an airspace review caused by the decommissioning of the Tahlequah non- directional radio beacon (NDB). The geographic coordinates for the airport in the associated airspace would be updated to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database. Airspace redesign is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at this airport.

This proposed AD was prompted by reports of two new unsafe conditions and the need to supersede corrective actions for two previously addressed unsafe conditions. The FAA proposes to supersede AD 2018-25-09 and AD 2019-12-01, which apply to the affected LEAP-1B model turbofan engines. Since the FAA issued the ADs, the FAA received information and analysis indicating that supersedure of these ADs is warranted.
