Document Number: 2017-21558
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-10-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Pratt & Whitney Division (PW) PW4052, PW4056, PW4060, PW4062, PW4062A, PW4152, PW4156A, PW4158, PW4460, and PW4462 turbofan engine models, including engines identified with suffixes -1C, -1E, -3, -3A, or -3B. This proposed AD was prompted by the discovery of multiple cracked 4th stage low-pressure turbine (LPT) air seals in the fleet. This proposed AD requires removal from service of certain air seals. We are proposing this AD to correct the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-21445
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-10-12
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 737-100, -200, and -200C series airplanes.

This AD requires revising the maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to add supplemental inspections. This AD also requires inspections to detect cracks in each structural significant item (SSI), and repair of any cracked structure. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

Notice Suspending Implementation of the Environmental Impact Statement and Record of Decision for the Philadelphia International Airport Capacity Enhancement Program
Document Number: 2017-21880
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-10-11
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is suspending further implementation of the December 2010 ROD for the Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) CEP. Due to unforeseen changes in operations at PHL, several of the airfield capacity enhancing components identified in the CEP ROD are not needed at this time. When the CEP ROD was issued, operations at PHL were forecasted to reach 555,112 in 2016 and 699,799 in 2025. PHL was consistently ranked as one of the most delayed airports in the nation. Delays at PHL contributed to delays throughout the region and across the nation and were resulting in substantial costs in time and money for passengers and airlines. However, unforeseen changes in the aviation industry and aircraft activity have resulted in considerably less activity at PHL. Actual operations at PHL in 2016 were 394,022, nearly thirty percent lower than originally forecasted. PHL is no longer experiencing severe congestion or significant delays. Over recent years, there has been no indication or reason to believe that forecasted operations and associated delays at PHL will reach the level experienced at the time FAA approved the CEP ROD. Since there is no longer a foreseeable need for additional capacity at PHL, the airport sponsor, the City of Philadelphia, has elected to postpone several of the major components of CEP, including construction of the new southern runway and the extension of Runway 8/26. In support of this decision, the FAA is suspending the ROD for the PHL CEP. Projects currently underway will continue to completion. As circumstances change and new projects are proposed, environmental analyses for those projects will be conducted in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).

This action modifies airspace designations at Molokai Airport, Kaunakakai, HI. The FAA establishes an area of Class E airspace designated as a surface area; modifies Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D or E surface area; and modifies Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface. Also, this action updates the airport's geographic coordinates for the associated Class D and E airspace areas to reflect the FAA's current aeronautical database and removes references to the Molokai VHF omnidirectional range/tactical air navigation (VORTAC). These changes enhance safety and support instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airport.
