Amendment, Revocation, and Establishment of Class D and E Airspace; Enid Vance AFB, OK; Enid Woodring Municipal Airport, OK; Enid, OK; and Vance AFB, OK
Document Number: 2018-06756
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-04-05
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action: Removes the Class D airspace for Enid Woodring Municipal Airport, OK, and Enid Vance AFB, OK; establishes Class D airspace for Enid Woodring Regional Airport, Enid, OK, and Vance AFB, OK; amends the Class E airspace designated as a surface area for Enid Woodring Regional Airport; establishes Class E airspace designated as a surface area for Vance AFB; removes the Class E airspace designated as an extension of Class D and Class E surface areas at Enid Woodring Municipal Airport, OK, and Enid Vance AFB, OK; establishes Class E airspace designated as an extension of Class D and Class E surface areas at Enid Woodring Regional Airport and Vance AFB; and amends the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Enid Woodring Regional Airport and Vance AFB. Due to the differing operating hours of the two airports, the airspace descriptions are being separated for safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at these airports. Additionally, airspace redesign is necessary to accommodate new instrument procedures at Enid Woodring Regional Airport.
Amendment of Class E Airspace; Selinsgrove, PA
Document Number: 2018-06754
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-04-05
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation

Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Ellijay, GA
Document Number: 2018-06753
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-04-05
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to establish Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Ellijay, GA, to accommodate new area navigation (RNAV) global positioning system (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures (SIAPs) serving Gilmer County Airport. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at this airport.
Proposed Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace; Eastover, SC and Sumter, SC
Document Number: 2018-06752
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-04-05
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend Class D airspace and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at McEntire Joint National Guard Base (JNGB), Eastover, SC, to accommodate airspace reconfiguration due to the decommissioning of the McEntire non- directional radio beacon (NDB) and cancellation of the NDB approach. 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 McEntire JNGB, Shaw AFB, and Sumter Airport, Sumter, SC, and update the names of McEntire JNGB and Sumter Airport. Also, an editorial change would be made to the airspace designation in both Class D and E airspace.
Amendment of Class B Airspace Description; St. Louis, MO
Document Number: 2018-06750
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-04-05
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action amends the description of the St. Louis, MO, Class B airspace area by changing the references for defining the center point of the airspace from the Cardinal VHF Omnidirectional Range/ Distance Measuring Equipment (VOR/DME) to ``Point of Origin'' due to the planned decommissioning of the Cardinal, MO, VOR/DME. The St. Louis Class B airspace description is edited further to update the St. Louis Lambert International Airport name, St. Charles County Smartt Airport name, and airport reference point (ARP) geographic coordinates for the airports to match the current information in the FAA's aeronautical database. The Creve Coeur Airport ARP and St. Louis Lambert International Airport Instrument Landing System (ILS) Runway 30L Localizer geographic coordinates are also updated to match the FAA's aeronautical database. In addition, the airspace description is edited throughout to improve accuracy and clarity. These changes are editorial only and do not alter the current charted boundaries, altitudes, or ATC procedures for the St. Louis, MO, Class B airspace area.
Airworthiness Directives; Bell Helicopter Textron Canada Limited Helicopters
Document Number: 2018-06640
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-04-05
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2017-13- 03 for Bell Helicopter Textron Canada Limited (Bell) Model 429 helicopters. AD 2017-13-03 requires adding an identification number to life-limited rod ends that do not have a serial number (S/N). Since we issued AD 2017-13-03, an additional life-limited rod end was identified that is affected by the same unsafe condition. This proposed AD would retain the requirements of AD 2017-13-03 and revise the Applicability paragraph by adding that rod end. The actions of this proposed AD are intended to address an unsafe condition on these products.

Airworthiness Directives; Piper Aircraft, Inc.
Document Number: 2018-06336
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-04-05
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2018-02-05 for certain Piper Aircraft, Inc. Models PA-28-140, PA-28-150, PA-28-151, PA-28-160, PA-28-161, PA-28-180, PA-28-181, PA-28-236, PA-28-201T, PA- 28R-180, PA-28R-200, PA-28R-201, PA-28R-201T, PA-28RT-201, and PA-28RT- 201T airplanes. AD 2018-02- 05 required inspecting the fuel tank selector cover to verify the left and right fuel tank selector placards are located at the proper positions and replacing those that are improperly located with new placards. This AD addresses the same unsafe condition and requires the same actions as AD 2018-02-05, but changes the inspection of the fuel tank selector cover to a preflight check and allows for various fuel selector clocking configurations. This AD was prompted by our determination to allow the owner/operator (pilot) holding at least a private pilot certificate to perform the preflight check. We are issuing this AD to allow the pilot to do a preflight check of the fuel selector placards.
