Proposed Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace; Lewiston, ID
Document Number: 2017-26206
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-12-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend controlled airspace at Lewiston- Nez Perce County Airport, Lewiston, ID, by enlarging Class D airspace, and Class E surface airspace, and reducing Class E airspace designated as an extension, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface. Also, this action would remove the part-time Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) status from Class E airspace designated as an extension. Additionally, an editorial change would be made to the legal descriptions replacing ``Airport/Facility Directory'' with the term ``Chart Supplement''. This action would enhance safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airport.
Proposed Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace; Twin Falls, ID
Document Number: 2017-26205
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-12-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to modify Class E airspace designated as an extension, and modify Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Joslin Field-Magic Valley Regional Airport, Twin Falls, ID. Also, the part-time Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) status would be removed from Class E airspace designated as an extension. Additionally, an editorial change would be made to the Class D airspace, Class E surface airspace, and Class E extension airspace legal descriptions replacing ``Airport/Facility Directory'' with the term ``Chart Supplement.'' Also, this proposal would remove the words ``Twin Falls'' from the airport name in the airspace designations for Class D and E airspace noted in this proposal. A biennial review found these changes are necessary to accommodate airspace redesign for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations within the National Airspace System.
Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Rangely, CO
Document Number: 2017-26204
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-12-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to establish Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, at Rangely Airport, Rangely, CO, to accommodate new area navigation (RNAV) procedures at the airport. This action would ensure the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations within the National Airspace System.
Establishment of Class E Airspace; Kaunakakai, HI
Document Number: 2017-26203
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-12-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action corrects a final rule published in the Federal Register of October 11, 2017, that establishes Class E airspace and amends Class D and E airspace at Molokai Airport, Kaunakakai, HI. The airspace description for the airport in Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface contained the following wording in error: ``That airspace extending upward from the surface . . .'' It is removed and replaced by ``That airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface . . . .''
Establishment of Class E Airspace, Twin Bridges, MT
Document Number: 2017-26202
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-12-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 and 1,200 feet above the surface at Twin Bridges Airport, Twin Bridges, MT, to accommodate the development of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations under standard instrument approach and departure procedures at the airport, for the safety and management of aircraft within the National Airspace System. This action also makes a minor correction to one geographic coordinate of the airport reference point.
Notice of Availability of the Federal Aviation Administration's Record of Decision for the Establishment and Modification of Oregon Military Training Special Use Airspace Identified as Warning Area 570, Eel Military Operation Area Complex, Redhawk Military Operation Area Complex, and Juniper/Hart Military Operation Area Complex and the Federal Aviation Administration's Adoption of the Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) Prepared by the Oregon Air National Guard/National Guard Bureau for the Proposed Establishment and Modification of Oregon Military Training Airspace (EIS No. 20170197)
Document Number: 2017-26201
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-12-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
On September 29, 2017, the FAA signed its Adoption/Record of Decision (ROD) for its aeronautical actionthe modification and establishment of Military Operation Areas (MOAs), Air Traffic Controlled Assigned Airspace (AATCAs) and Warning Areas for the Oregon Military Training Airspace. The Adoption/ROD identifies the aeronautical action and states the FAA decision to modify existing airspace and establish new airspace to support the Oregon Air National Guard's F-15 training operations. In accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, paragraphs 9-2, Adoption of Other Agencies' National Environmental Policy Act Documents, and 7400.2L, paragraph 32-2-3, the FAA has conducted an independent review and evaluation of the Air National Guard, National Guard Bureau and U.S. Air Force's Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the proposed Establishment and Modification of Military Operation Areas (MOAs) and Warning Area. Based on its independent review, the FAA has determined that the EIS and its supporting documentation, as incorporated by reference, adequately assess and disclose the environmental impacts of the FAA's proposed aeronautical action and that the adoption of the FEIS by the FAA is authorized. Accordingly, the FAA adopts the FEIS, Appendices and all information identified therein, incorporated by reference and made publicly available. Further, the FAA's September 29, 2017 Adoption/ Record of Decision (ROD) is based on its adoption of the FEIS and the FEIS' identification, analysis and conclusions regarding resources, and environmental effects of the ANG/NGB's Proposed Action.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-26193
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-12-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 767-200 and -300 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of two cracks at a certain frame inner chord. This proposed AD would require a detailed inspection for any material review board (MRB) filler installed in the area from the frame web to the stub-beam fitting at certain stations to determine if the filler extends above the frame-to-stub-beam joint, and applicable on-condition actions. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Fokker Services B.V. Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-26192
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-12-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Fokker Services B.V. Model F28 Mark 0070 and 0100 airplanes. This AD requires contacting the FAA to obtain instructions for addressing the unsafe condition on these products, and doing the actions specified in those instructions. This AD was prompted by a report of sparks and an electrical smell on the flight deck of a Model F28 Mark 0070 airplane. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Fokker Services B.V. Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-26191
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-12-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Fokker Services B.V. Model F28 Mark 1000, 2000, 3000, and 4000 airplanes. This AD requires contacting the FAA to obtain instructions for addressing the unsafe condition on these products, and doing the actions specified in those instructions. This AD was prompted by reports indicating that certain exit signs have a hydrogen isotope that decays over time, causing the signs to lose their brightness. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
