Federal Aviation Administration September 25, 2014 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Proposed Modification of Restricted Areas R-4501A, R-4501B, R-4501C, R-4501D, R-4501F, and R-4501H; Fort Leonard Wood, MO.
Document Number: 2014-22884
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-09-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to modify the designated altitudes of restricted area R-4501B, Fort Leonard Wood, MO, by raising the restricted area ceiling from 1,500 feet mean seal level (MSL) in the north and 2,200 feet MSL in the south to a single altitude of 4,300 feet MSL across the entire restricted area. This action also proposes to add exclusions to the boundaries of R-4501C, R-4501F, and R-4501H to address overlapping restricted areas. Finally, this action proposes numerous administrative changes to the R-4501A and R-4501B titles and R-4501A-D, R-4501F, and R-4501H using agency information to standardize the format and information provided describing these restricted areas of the Fort Leonard Wood restricted area complex.
Proposed Modification of Restricted Areas R-3804A, R-3804B, and R-3804C; Fort Polk, LA
Document Number: 2014-22880
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-09-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to expand the lateral boundary of restricted area R-3804B, Fort Polk, LA, and raise the restricted area ceiling to, but not including 10,000 feet mean sea level (MSL). The expanded restricted airspace would be used to contain new live fire ranges and support mission requirements of the U.S. Army in order to fully exploit the capabilities of modern weapons systems and complex training scenarios that replicate the conditions encountered during military deployments today. This action also proposes time of designation changes to R-3804A and R-3804B to better reflect when the restricted areas are required and in use by the U.S. Army and when the airspace is available for use by nonparticipants. This action would incorporate editorial corrections to the R-3804A, R-3804B, and R-3804C legal descriptions.
Proposed Establishment of Class D and E Airspace, and Amendment of Class E Airspace; Hammond, LA
Document Number: 2014-22849
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-09-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to establish Class D airspace and Class E airspace designated as an extension, at Hammond, LA. The establishment of an air traffic control tower has made this action necessary for the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations within the airspace at Hammond Northshore Regional Airport. This action also would amend the airport name and adjust the geographic coordinates for the current Class E airspace area.
Proposed Revocation of Class D Airspace; Independence, KS
Document Number: 2014-22846
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-09-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to remove Class D airspace at Independence Municipal Airport, Independence, KS. The closure of the airport's air traffic control tower has necessitated the need for this proposal.
Special Conditions: Boeing Model 777-300ER, Single-Occupant, Oblique (Side-Facing) Seats With Inflatable Lapbelts
Document Number: 2014-22781
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-09-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These special conditions are issued for Boeing Model 777-300ER airplanes with single-occupant, oblique (side-facing) seats equipped with inflatable lapbelts. This installation is novel or unusual, and the applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for occupants of seats installed at an oblique angle of 30 degrees to the centerline of the airplane or for inflatable restraint systems. These special conditions contain the additional safety standards that the Administrator considers necessary to establish a level of safety equivalent to that established by the existing airworthiness standards.
Airports/Locations: Special Operating Restrictions
Document Number: 2014-22507
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-09-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action amends the Appendix listing airports/locations with special operating restrictions in FAA's general operating and flight rules. Specifically, this action adds an additional entry for Houston, TX (William P. Hobby Airport), and San Diego, CA (Marine Corps Air Station Miramar), to the Appendix, which lists the airports where aircraft operating within 30 nautical miles (NM) of the listed airports, from the surface upward to 10,000 feet mean sea level (MSL) must be equipped with an altitude encoding transponder. The FAA is taking this action to correctly identify applicable airports under the appropriate sections in the Appendix.
Standard Instrument Approach Procedures, and Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures; Miscellaneous Amendments
Document Number: 2014-22380
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-09-25
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.
