Third Meeting: RTCA Special Committee 223: Airport Surface Wireless Communications
The FAA is issuing this notice to advise the public of a meeting of RTCA Special Committee 223: Airport Surface Wireless Communications.
Fifty-First Meeting: RTCA Special Committee 186: Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B)
The FAA is issuing this notice to advise the public of a meeting of RTCA Special Committee 186: Automatic Dependent SurveillanceBroadcast (ADS-B).
Revocation of Class D and E Airspace; Panama City, FL
This action would remove Class D and Class E airspace areas at Panama City-Bay County Airport, Panama City, FL, as the old airport and control tower is scheduled to be closed. Controlled airspace will be established for the new airport under separate rulemaking.
Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Lucin, UT
This action proposes to establish Class E airspace for the Lucin VHF Omni-Directional Radio Range Tactical Air Navigational Aid (VORTAC), Lucin, UT, to facilitate vectoring of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) traffic from en route airspace to Salt Lake City, UT. This action would enhance the safety and management of IFR operations for the Salt Lake City, UT area.
Proposed Amendment of Class D and E Airspace; Yuma, AZ
This action proposes to modify Class D and Class E airspace in the Yuma, AZ, area. Additional controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate aircraft arriving and departing Somerton Airport, Somerton, AZ. This action would enhance the safety and management of aircraft operations at the airport.
Amendment of Class E Airspace; Mount Airy, NC
This action proposes to amend Class E Airspace at Mount Airy, NC, to accommodate the additional airspace needed for the Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) developed for Mount Airy-Surry County Airport. This action enhances the safety and airspace management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport.
Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce Deutschland Ltd & Co KG (RRD) Models Tay 620-15, Tay 650-15, and Tay 651-54 Turbofan Engines
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This proposed AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as: Following a review of operational data of the Tay 651-54 engine, it has been found that the actual stress levels in the Tay 651- 54 engine High Pressure Compressor (HPC) stages 1, 3, 6, 7 and 12 discs were higher than those originally assumed and therefore the approved lives needed to be reduced.
Airworthiness Directives; Pratt & Whitney (PW) Model PW2037, PW2037(M), and PW2040 Turbofan Engines
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for PW Model PW2037, PW2037(M), and PW2040 turbofan engines. This proposed AD would require removing erosion damage on fan blades with cutback leading edges and restoring the leading edge contour. This proposed AD results from reports from PW that fan blade leading edge erosion can result in a fan thrust deterioration mode (FTDM) condition, which reduces the engine's capability of producing full rated take-off thrust. We are proposing this AD to prevent loss of engine thrust from an FTDM condition, which could result in an inability to maintain safe flight.
Airworthiness Directives; Pratt & Whitney (PW) PW4000 Series Turbofan Engines
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for PW PW4052, PW4056, PW4060, PW4062, PW4062A, PW4074, PW4077, PW4077D, PW4084D, PW4090, PW4090-3, PW4152, PW4156, PW4156A, PW4158, PW4164, PW4168, PW4168A, PW4460, and PW4462 turbofan engines. This proposed AD would require initial and repetitive fluorescent penetrant inspections (FPI) for cracks in the blade locking and loading slots of the high-pressure compressor (HPC) drum rotor disk assembly. This proposed AD results from reports of cracked locking and loading slots in the HPC drum rotor disk assembly. We are proposing this AD to detect cracks in the locking and loading slots in the HPC drum rotor disk assemblies, which could result in rupture of the HPC drum rotor disk assembly and damage to the airplane.
Public Notice for Waiver of Aeronautical Land-Use Assurance; James N. Cox Dayton International Airport, Dayton, OH
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is considering a proposal to change a portion of the airport from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use and to authorize the release of 9.167 acres of airport property for future non-aeronautical use. The land consists of portions of 2 original airport acquired parcels. These parcels were acquired by the City of Dayton from the U.S. Government, Department of Housing and Urban Development without federal participation. There are no requirements to retain the land for airport use. There are no impacts to the airport by allowing the City of Dayton to lease the property. The land is not needed for aeronautical use. Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the lease of the subject airport property nor a determination of eligibility for grant-in-aid funding from the FAA. The disposition of proceeds from the lease of the airport property will be in accordance with FAA's Policy and Procedures Concerning the Use of Airport Revenue, published in the Federal Register on February 16, 1999. In accordance with section 47107(h) of title 49, United States Code, this notice is required to be published in the Federal Register 30 days before modifying the land-use assurance that requires the property to be used for an aeronautical purpose.
Petition for Exemption; Summary of Petition Received
This notice contains a summary of a petition seeking relief from specified requirements of 14 CFR. The purpose of this notice is to improve the public's awareness of, and participation in, this aspect of FAA's regulatory activities. Neither publication of this notice nor the inclusion or omission of information in the summary is intended to affect the legal status of the petition or its final disposition.
Airworthiness Directives; Empresa Brasileira de Aeronautica S.A. (EMBRAER) Model ERJ 170 and Model ERJ 190 Airplanes
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as:
