Extension of the Requirement for Helicopters To Use the New York North Shore Helicopter Route; Technical Amendment
The FAA is correcting an error, whereby the applicability of a regulation was extended instead of its effectivity. Consequently, a section of the pertinent regulation was relocated in Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations and all remaining provisions of the regulation inadvertently expired. However, the entire regulation was intended to be extended for four years in the final rule published on July 25, 2016 (Doc. No. 2016-17427, 81 FR 48323), which became effective on August 7, 2016.

Notice of Release From Federal Grant Assurance Obligations at Bob Hope Airport, Burbank, Los Angeles County, California
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes to rule and invites public comment on the application for a release of approximately 1.5 acres of airport property at Bob Hope Airport, Burbank, Los Angeles County, California, from all conditions contained in the Grant Assurances since the parcel of land is not needed for airport purposes. The property will be sold for its fair market value and the proceeds used for airport purposes. The redevelopment of the land for commercial purposes represents a compatible land use that will not interfere with the airport or its operation, thereby protecting the interests of civil aviation.
Proposed Establishment of Restricted Area R-2603; Fort Carson, CO
This action proposes to establish restricted area R-2603 within the existing Fort Carson, CO, Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site (PCMS), near Trinidad, CO. The U.S. Army requires additional restricted airspace because the restricted area ranges at Fort Carson are not large enough to meet all training requirements. The proposed R-2603 would provide increased ground-to-air, air-to-ground, and air-to-air battle space to increase training capacity and relieve training congestion at Fort Carson.
Notice of Release From Federal Grant Assurance Obligations at Tucson International Airport, Tucson, Pima County, Arizona
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes to rule and invites public comment on the application for a release of approximately 3 acres of airport property at Tucson International Airport, Tucson, Pima County, Arizona, from all conditions contained in the Grant Assurances since the parcel of land is not needed for airport purposes. The property will be sold for its fair market value and the proceeds used for airport purposes. The redevelopment of the land for roadway enhancements to property owned by the U. S. Air Force represents a compatible land use that will not interfere with the airport or its operation, thereby protecting the interests of civil aviation.
Modification of Class D Airspace; Peru, IN
This action modifies Class D airspace at Grissom Army Reserve Base (ARB), IN, to allow for a lower Circling Minimum Descent Altitude, where Instrument Flight Rules Category E circling procedures are being used. This action increases the area of the existing controlled airspace for Grissom ARB, IN. Additionally, this action will add Peru, Grissom ARB, IN to the subtitle of the airspace designation.
Airworthiness Directives; M7 Aerospace LLC
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all M7 Aerospace LLC Models SA226-AT, SA226-T, SA226-T(B), SA226-TC, SA227- AC (C-26A), SA227-AT, SA227-BC (C-26A), SA227-CC, SA227-DC (C-26B), and SA227-TT airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by corrosion and stress corrosion cracking of the pitch trim actuator upper attach fittings of the horizontal stabilizer front spar. This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections of the pitch trim actuator upper attach fittings for corrosion and/or cracking in the bolt holes and the web/flange radius with replacement of fittings as necessary. We are proposing this AD to prevent jamming and/or loss of control of the horizontal stabilizer, which could result in partial or complete loss of airplane pitch control.
