Standard Instrument Approach Procedures, and Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures; Miscellaneous Amendments
Document Number: 2017-25003
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-11-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This rule amends, suspends, or removes 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 for the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace and to promote safe flight operations under instrument flight rules at the affected airports.

Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace, Selinsgrove, PA
Document Number: 2017-24870
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-11-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface in Selinsgrove, PA. A new area navigation (RNAV) global positioning system (GPS) standard instrument approach procedure has been developed at Penn Valley Airport, requiring airspace reconfiguration. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airport. This action also would update the geographic coordinates of the airport.
Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace, Moundsville, WV
Document Number: 2017-24869
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-11-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface at Marshall County Airport, Moundsville, WV, due to the FAA's reevaluation of the airspace. This amendment would result in an increase from a 6.2-mile radius to a 7.3-mile radius of the airport. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airport. This action also would update the geographic coordinates of the airport.
Establishment of Class E Airspace; Boothville, LA
Document Number: 2017-24868
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-11-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Boothville Heliport, Boothville, LA. Controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate new special instrument approach procedures developed at Boothville Heliport, for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the heliport.
Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace for the Following Ohio Towns; Millersburg, OH and Coshocton, OH
Document Number: 2017-24851
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-11-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to modify Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Holmes County Airport, Millersburg, OH; and at Richard Downing Airport, Coshocton, OH due to the decommissioning of Tiverton VHF Omnidirectional Range (VOR) and Distance Measuring Equipment (DME), cancellation of the VOR approaches, and implementation of area navigation (RNAV) procedures have made this action necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at these airports. Additionally, the geographic coordinates at Richard Downing Airport and Holmes County Airport would be adjusted to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-24813
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-11-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 707 airplanes, and Model 720 and 720B series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by fuel system reviews conducted by the manufacturer. This proposed AD would require revising the maintenance or inspection program to include new airworthiness limitations. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Dassault Aviation Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-24810
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-11-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2017-19-17, which applied to certain Dassault Aviation Model FALCON 900EX and FALCON 2000EX airplanes. AD 2017-19-17 required revising the airplane flight manual (AFM) to include procedures to follow when an airplane is operating in icing conditions. AD 2017-19-17 also required a detailed inspection of the wing anti-ice system ducting for the presence of a diaphragm, and follow-on actions (replacement of ducting or re- identification of the ducting part marking). This new AD retains the actions required by AD 2017-19-17, and corrects the follow-on actions for certain airplanes. This AD was prompted by a determination that the follow-on actions specified in AD 2017-19-17 were incorrect for certain airplanes. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-24737
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-11-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model CL-600-2A12 (CL-601 Variant) and CL-600-2B16 (CL-601-3A, CL-601-3R, and CL-604 Variants) airplanes. This AD was prompted by a determination that the bushing holes on the engine mount rib might not conform to the engineering drawings and that certain inspections of the engine mount rib must be included in the airworthiness limitations section (ALS) of the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness (ICA). This AD requires revising the maintenance or inspection program to incorporate certain airworthiness limitation items (ALIs). We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-24732
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-11-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 737-100, -200, -200C, -300, -400, and -500 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of cracks found in the lower chord of the left wing rear spar. This AD requires repetitive inspections for cracking of the lower chord of the rear spar and lower aft skin and applicable on-condition actions. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-23989
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-11-20
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 757-200, -200PF, and -200CB series airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of slats disbonding on airplanes on which the terminating actions of AD 2005-07-08 had been performed. We have also received reports of slats disbonding on airplanes outside of the applicability of AD 90-23-06, AD 91-22-51, and AD 2005-07-08, which also addressed slat disbonding. This AD requires determining the type of trailing edge slat wedges of the leading edge slats, repetitive inspections for disbonding on certain trailing edge slat wedges, and corrective actions if necessary. This AD also provides an optional terminating action for the repetitive inspections. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
