Date: 2019-02-07
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes to rule and invites public comment for the release of approximately 336 acres of airport property at the Lost Hills Airport (Airport) in Lost Hills, California from all conditions contained in the Surplus Property Deed and Grant Assurances because the Airport land is not needed for airport purposes. The land requested to be released is located at the northeast corner of State Route 46 and Lost Hills Road in Lost Hills California. The subject land is adjacent to offsite agricultural uses, sewage treatment ponds and residential and commercial development. On the west side of the Airport there is a small industrial lease area and one water well. Whereas, on the southwest portion of the Airport there is a soccer complex, County public park and fire station. The Airport land will be sold via County public auction at Fair Market Value (FMV) for either its existing use as industrial/public facility or conversion to agricultural use. The County public park and fire station currently located on Airport land will be sold at its FMV for continued uninterrupted use. The proceeds from the sale of airport land will be reinvested into Meadows Field and Kern Valley airports, therefore benefitting general aviation. Unamortized Airport Improvement Program Grant funds in the amount of $426,289 will be reinvested into general aviation grant projects at either Meadows Field Airport or Kern Valley Airport, both located in Kern County, California.

Document Number: 2019-01467
Type: Notice
Date: 2019-02-07
Agency: Department of Transportation, Office of the Secretary
In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, the Department of Transportation proposes to update and reissue a current Department of Transportation system of records titled, ``Department of Transportation/Office of the SecretaryDOT/OST 102Aviation Consumer Complaint Application Online System of Records.'' This system of records allows the Department of Transportation/Office of the Secretary to collect and maintain records on service-related consumer complaints, inquiries, opinions, and compliments regarding air carriers or air travel companies. The records and information collected and maintained in this system are used to verify compliance with Department's aviation consumer protection requirements. The system receives and is used to process informal complaints regarding aviation consumer issues. The Aviation Consumer Complaint Application Online System of Records utilizes the Department's electronic case management and tracking system to generate reports. It also allows the Department to manage information provided during the course of its investigations and, in the process, to facilitate its management of investigations and investigative resources. Through this system, the Department can enter, update, review, analyze, and manage information regarding case projects and enforcement elements in addition to the ability to run a variety of reports to better manage tracking current and expiring cases. Furthermore, it allows DOT employees to track actions taken to resolve violations, provide a system for creating and reporting statistical information, and tracking government property and other resources used in investigative activities. This system of records notice has been updated within the system location, system manager, categories of records in the system, record source categories, routine uses, storage, retrievability, retention and disposal, safeguards, notification procedures, exemptions, and history. Additionally, the Department of Transportation is issuing a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to exempt this system of records from certain provisions of the Privacy Act, elsewhere in the Federal Register. Furthermore, this notice includes non-substantive changes to simplify the formatting and text of the previously published notice. It also updates the SORN to reflect changes in the heading names and order as required by the reissuance of Circular A-108 by the Office of Management and Budget. This updated system will be included in the Department of Transportation's inventory of record systems.

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-01244
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-02-07
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 787-8, 787-9, and 787-10 airplanes. This AD requires revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations. This AD was prompted by reports of warpage of internal engine fire handle components, which can cause binding and prevent proper operation. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Saab AB, Saab Aeronautics (Formerly Known as Saab AB, Saab Aerosystems) Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-01243
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-02-07
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Saab AB, Saab Aeronautics Model SAAB 2000 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by an event where the airplane did not respond to the flightcrew's flight control inputs because the pitch trim switches did not disconnect the autopilot. This proposed AD would require modifying the wiring installation for the autopilot disconnect logic. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus SAS Model A319-113 and -114 airplanes, and Model A320-211 and - 212 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report that a life- limit of 64,000 flight cycles has been established for certain titanium crossbeams of the forward engine mount. This proposed AD would require repetitive replacements of all affected crossbeams of the forward engine mount. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
