Establishment of Class E Airspace, Willits, CA
Document Number: 2017-15869
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-07-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Frank R. Howard Memorial Hospital Heliport, Willits, CA, to support the development of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations under standard instrument approach and departure procedures at the heliport, for the safety and management of aircraft within the National Airspace System.
Proposed Establishment of Class D and Class E Airspace, Amendment of Class E Airspace; Truckee, CA
Document Number: 2017-15868
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-07-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to establish Class D airspace, and Class E airspace designated as an extension, and modify Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, at Truckee-Tahoe Airport, Truckee, CA. This airspace redesign is necessary to support standard instrument approach and departure procedures under instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airport due to the commissioning of the Truckee-Tahoe Airport Non-Federal Contract Tower. This proposal would enhance the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport.

Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action modifies Class E surface area airspace, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Bishop Airport (formerly Eastern Sierra Regional Airport), Bishop, CA. This action also establishes Class E surface area airspace designated as an extension at this airport. After a review, the FAA found these modifications are necessary for the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules aircraft operations at the airport.
Amendment of Class E Airspace, Colorado City, AZ
Document Number: 2017-15866
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-07-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action modifies Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Colorado City Municipal Airport, Colorado City, AZ, to support the implementation of new Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures for instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airport. In addition, it removes the Class E airspace area extending upward from 1,200 feet. Also, this action updates the geographic coordinates of the airport to match the FAA's current aeronautical database. This action enhances the safety and management of controlled airspace within the national airspace system.
Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace and Amendment of Class D and E Airspace; Kaunakakai, HI
Document Number: 2017-15865
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-07-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes changes to airspace designations at Molokai Airport, Kaunakakai, HI. The FAA proposes to establish an area of Class E airspace designated as a surface area; modify Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D or E surface area; and modify Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface. Also, this action would update the airport's geographic coordinates for the associated Class D and E airspace areas to reflect the FAA's current aeronautical database and remove references to the Molokai VHF Omnidirectional Range/Tactical Air Navigation (VORTAC). These proposed changes would enhance safety and support Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-15806
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-07-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2016-13- 14, for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model DHC-8-400 series airplanes. AD 2016-13-14 requires an inspection to determine if certain left and right main landing gear (MLG) retract actuator rod ends are installed and repetitive liquid penetrant inspections (LPIs) of affected left and right MLG retract actuator rod ends, and corrective actions if necessary. Since we issued AD 2016-13-14, we have determined that replacement of the left and right MLG is necessary to address the unsafe condition. This proposed AD would retain the actions specified in AD 2016-13-14 and add a replacement of the left and right MLG retract actuator rod ends. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
