Proposed Amendment of VOR Federal Airways V-18, V-102, and V-278 in the Vicinity of Guthrie, TX
Document Number: 2018-17767
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-08-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend VHF Omnidirectional Range (VOR) Federal airways V-18, V-102, and V-278 in the vicinity of Guthrie, TX. The modifications are necessary due to the planned decommissioning of the Guthrie, TX, VOR/Tactical Air Navigation (VORTAC) navigation aid (NAVAID), which provides navigation guidance for portions of the affected air traffic service (ATS) routes. The Guthrie VORTAC is being decommissioned as part of the FAA's VOR Minimum Operational Network (MON) program.
Amendment of Multiple Restricted Area Boundary Descriptions; Florida
Document Number: 2018-17766
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-08-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action makes minor adjustments to the boundary descriptions of restricted areas R-2905A and R-2905B, Tyndall AFB, FL; R-2914B, and R-2919B, Valparaiso, FL; R-2915A and R-2915C, Eglin AFB, FL. The changes are needed because the FAA has adopted updated digital data that more precisely define maritime limits and other geophysical features used in the boundary descriptions. This requires minor changes to certain latitude/longitude points in the boundary descriptions of the above restricted areas in order to match the updated data and ensure accurate boundary depiction on aeronautical charts.

Agency: Federal Highway Administration, Department of Transportation
The FHWA is issuing this notice to advise the public that we are rescinding the September 26, 2013, NOI to prepare an EIS for a proposed project, the I-90 Tolling Project, to manage congestion and traffic flow on I-90 between I-5 and I-405, and contribute revenue to the sustainable, long-term funding for timely completion of the SR 520 Bridge Replacement and HOV Program and maintenance and future transportation improvements on I-90.
Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce Corporation Engines
Document Number: 2018-17704
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-08-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Rolls-Royce Corporation (RRC) AE 2100D2A and AE 2100D3 model turboprop engines and AE 3007A2 model turbofan engines. This AD was prompted by the possibility of a low-cycle fatigue failure on certain turbine wheels. This AD requires removing the affected turbine wheels at the next engine shop visit or before reaching the new reduced life limit, whichever occurs first, and replacing them with parts eligible for installation. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; ATR-GIE Avions de Transport Régional Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-17661
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-08-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2017-24-01, which applied to certain ATRGIE Avions de Transport R[eacute]gional Model ATR42-500 airplanes and Model ATR72-212A airplanes. AD 2017-24-01 required an inspection for routing attachments of electrical harness bundles and for wire damage, and corrective actions if necessary. This new AD adds additional airplanes to the applicability. This AD was prompted by a determination that additional airplanes are affected by the unsafe condition. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Fokker Services B.V. Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-17624
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-08-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Fokker Services B.V. Model F28 Mark 0070 and 0100 airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report that the retraction actuator eye-end of a Goodrich main landing gear (MLG) failed. This AD requires a one-time general visual inspection of the left-hand (LH) and right-hand (RH) MLG retraction actuators and replacement if necessary. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Standard Instrument Approach Procedures, and Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures; Miscellaneous Amendments
Document Number: 2018-17619
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-08-17
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This rule establishes, amends, suspends, or removes Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) and associated Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures (ODPs) for operations at certain airports. These regulatory actions are needed because of the adoption of new or revised criteria, or because of changes occurring in the National Airspace System, such as the commissioning of new navigational facilities, adding new obstacles, or changing air traffic requirements. These changes are designed to provide safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace and to promote safe flight operations under instrument flight rules at the affected airports.
