Special Conditions: General Electric CT7-2E1 Turboshaft Engine
Document Number: 2012-17560
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2012-07-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes special conditions for the General Electric CT7-2E1 engine model. This engine model will have a novel or unusual design feature which is a combination of two existing ratings into a new rating called ``flat 30-second and 2-minute OEI'' rating. This rating is intended for the continuation of flight of a multi- engine rotorcraft after one engine becomes inoperative. The applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for this design feature. These proposed special conditions contain the additional safety standards the Administrator considers necessary to establish a level of safety equivalent to that established by the existing airworthiness standards.
Modification of VOR Federal Airways V-10, V-12, and V-508 in the Vicinity of Olathe, KS
Document Number: 2012-17510
Type: Rule
Date: 2012-07-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action modifies three VHF Omnidirectional Range (VOR) Federal airways V-10, V-12, and V-508 in the vicinity of Olathe, KS. The FAA is taking this action to adjust the airway route structure due to the planned decommissioning of the Johnson County VOR navigation aid located on Johnson County Executive Airport, Olathe, KS. The establishment of the WETZL fix is canceled due to lack of extended service volume, and replaced with the existing DODSN fix, thereby making a one-degree correction to the Napoleon, MO, radial in the V-10 and V-12 airway descriptions. This action also removes the reference to the decommissioning of the Distance Measuring Equipment (DME) portion of the Johnson County VOR/DME navigation aid, as it remains in service.
Standard Instrument Approach Procedures, and Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures; Miscellaneous Amendments
Document Number: 2012-17289
Type: Rule
Date: 2012-07-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This rule establishes, amends, suspends, or revokes Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) and associated Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures 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.
