Public Notice for Waiver of Aeronautical Land-Use Assurance
The FAA is considering a proposal to change 76.592 acres of airport land from the federal obligation dedicating it to aeronautical use and to authorize this land to be used for revenue producing, non- aeronautical purposes at Indianapolis International Airport, Indianapolis, Indiana. The aforementioned land is not needed for current or future aeronautical use. The land is located along the southern boundary of the airport, bordered by Col. H. Weir Cook Memorial Drive; West Perimeter Road; Haueisen Road; and Bridgeport Road. The land is not developed. A solar power generating facility is proposed for development on the land.
Flight Simulation Training Device Qualification Standards for Extended Envelope and Adverse Weather Event Training Tasks; Extension of Comment Period
This action extends the comment period for an NPRM that was published on July 10, 2014. In that document, the FAA proposed new and updated flight simulation training device (FSTD) technical evaluation requirements that are necessary to fully implement the training requirements recently adopted in the Qualification, Service, and Use of Crewmembers and Aircraft Dispatchers final rule (Crewmember and Aircraft Dispatcher Training Final Rule) published on November 12, 2013. Additionally, the FAA proposed further changes to address several NTSB safety recommendations, aviation rulemaking committee recommendations, and to conduct a limited alignment of the part 60 FSTD technical evaluation requirements with that of the latest international FSTD evaluation guidance document. One airline, an association that represents several airlines, and an FSTD sponsor have requested that the FAA extend the comment period to allow time to adequately analyze the NPRM and prepare comments.
Modification and Establishment of Area Navigation (RNAV) Routes; Western United States
This action modifies three RNAV Q-routes and establishes five Q-routes originating in Oakland Air Route Traffic Control Center's (ARTCC) airspace. The routes promote operational efficiencies for users and provide connectivity to current and proposed RNAV en route and terminal procedures. Also, two waypoints and a fix name is changed for Q-120, and Q-128, as the proposed names already were in use.
Establishment of Class D Airspace and Amendment of Class E Airspace; Blackstone, VA
This action establishes Class D airspace and amends Class E airspace at Blackstone, VA, to accommodate the new air traffic control tower at Allen C Perkinson Blackstone Army Airfield. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airfield. This action updates the geographic coordinates of the airfield's Class E airspace, and adds exclusion of Restricted area airspace in Class D airspace.
Establishment of Class E Airspace; Cynthiana, KY
This action establishes Class E Airspace at Cynthiana, KY, to accommodate a new Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAP) serving Cynthiana- Harrison County Airport. This action enhances the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport.
Establishment of Class E Airspace; Pine Knot, KY
This action establishes Class E airspace at Pine Knot, KY, to accommodate a new Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) Standard Instrument Approach Procedure (SIAP) serving Mc Creary County Airport. This action enhances the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport.
