Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Connersville and Richmond, IN
Document Number: 2019-02690
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-02-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Mettel Field Airport, Connersville, IN, and Richmond Municipal Airport, Richmond, IN. The FAA is proposing this action as the result of an airspace review caused by the decommissioning of the Richmond VHF omnidirectional range (VOR) navigation aid, which provided navigation information for the instrument procedures at this airport, as part of the VOR Minimum Operational Network (MON) Program. The geographic coordinates of the airports would also be updated to coincide with the FAA's aeronautic database. Airspace redesign is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at these airports.

Document Number: 2019-02687
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-02-20

This action amends Class D airspace, Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D surface area, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface at Schenectady County Airport, Schenectady, NY, and Albany, NY by updating the geographic coordinates of this airport, Saratoga County Airport, Hunter NDB, and Cambridge VOR/DME. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at this airport. This action also replaces the outdated term Airport/ Facility Directory with the term Chart Supplement in the legal descriptions of associated Class D and E airspace of Schenectady County Airport, Schenectady, NY, and Ithaca Tompkins Regional Airport, Ithaca, NY. In addition, subsequent to publication, it was noted that the Cambridge VOR/DME was identified as VORTAC. This action corrects the error.

Document Number: 2019-02661
Type: Notice
Date: 2019-02-19

APA requested the exemption for APA member companies currently holding an exemption from the HOS 14-hour rule during the Independence Day season. These member companies will continue to use paper records of duty status (RODS) in lieu of an ELD during the designated Independence Day periods. FMCSA has determined that the terms and conditions of the exemption ensure a level of safety equivalent to, or greater than, the level of safety achieved without the exemption.

Airworthiness Directives; Engine Alliance Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2019-02654
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-02-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2018-11-16 for all Engine Alliance (EA) GP7270 and GP7277 turbofan engines with a certain engine fan hub assembly. AD 2018-11-16 required a one-time eddy current inspection (ECI) of the engine fan hub blade slot bottom and blade slot front edge for cracks, a visual inspection of the engine fan hub assembly for damage, and removal of parts if damage or defects are found that are outside serviceable limits. This AD retains these requirements, but expands the population of affected engine fan hub assemblies and revises the compliance time for the inspections. This AD was prompted by the FAA's determination that inspections need to be expanded to all EA GP7270 and GP7277 turbofan engines. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-02552
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-02-15
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2018-19- 18, which applies to certain Airbus SAS Model A300 B4-603, B4-620, and B4-622 airplanes; Model A300 B4-600R series airplanes; Model A300 C4- 605R Variant F airplanes; and Model A300 F4-605R airplanes. AD 2018-19- 18 requires, depending on airplane configuration, a modification of certain angle fitting attachment holes; repetitive inspections for cracking of certain holes of the internal lower angle fitting web, certain holes of the internal lower angle fitting horizontal splicing, the aft bottom panel, and a certain junction area; and related investigative and corrective actions if necessary. Since we issued AD 2018-19-18, we have determined that additional airplanes are affected by the unsafe condition. This proposed AD would retain the actions required by AD 2018-19-18, expand the applicability, and, for certain airplanes, would require repetitive inspections for cracking of certain holes of the center wing box (CWB) lower angle fittings and the CWB lower panel, and corrective actions if necessary. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Pratt & Whitney Division (PW) Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2019-02453
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-02-15

This AD was prompted by an in-flight failure of a 1st-stage low-pressure compressor (LPC) blade. This AD requires initial and repetitive thermal acoustic imaging (TAI) inspections for cracks in certain 1st-stage LPC blades and removal of those blades that fail inspection. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Parts and Accessories Necessary for Safe Operation; Application for an Exemption From the Automobile Carriers Conference of the American Trucking Associations
Document Number: 2019-02378
Type: Notice
Date: 2019-02-15
Agency: Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announces its decision to grant the Automobile Carriers Conference (ACC) of the American Truck Associations (ATA) for a limited 5-year exemption to relieve motor carriers operating stinger steered automobile transporter equipment from the requirement to place warning flags on projecting loads of new motor vehicles. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR) require any commercial motor vehicle (CMV) transporting a load which extends more than 4 feet beyond the rear of the vehicle be marked with a single red or orange fluorescent warning flag at the extreme rear if the projecting load is 2 feet wide or less, and two warning flags if the projecting load is wider than 2 feet, located to indicate the maximum width of loads which extend beyond the sides and/or rear of the vehicle. The Agency has determined that the lack of warning flags on stinger steered automobile transporter equipment when transporting motor vehicles would not have an adverse impact on safety and that adherence to the terms and conditions of the exemption would achieve a level of safety equivalent to or greater than the level of safety provided by the regulation.

We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus SAS Model A330-200, -200F, and -300 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by a revision of the airworthiness limitations section (ALS), which provides new and more restrictive maintenance requirements and airworthiness limitations for airplane structures and systems. This AD requires revising the existing maintenance or inspection program to incorporate new maintenance requirements and airworthiness limitations. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 787 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report of an uncommanded descent and turn that occurred after an inflight switch to the spare flight management function (FMF). This AD requires an inspection of the flight management system (FMS) to determine if certain operational program software (OPS) is installed and installation of new FMS OPS and a software check if necessary. For certain airplanes, this AD also requires concurrent actions. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

The non-compliance could result in flight attendant seats failing in a high-G crash. This AD requires modifications for galley mounted seat fittings. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
