Twenty Seventh RTCA SC-223 IPS and AeroMACS Joint Plenary With WG-108
Document Number: 2018-09446
Type: Notice
Date: 2018-05-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is issuing this notice to advise the public of a meeting of Twenty Seventh RTCA SC-223 IPS and AeroMACS Joint Plenary with WG-108.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-09277
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-05-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model A319-131, A319-132, A319-133, A320-231, A320-232, A320-233, A321-131, A321-231, and A321-232 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of fan cowl door (FCD) losses during take-off. This proposed AD would require modification and re-identification, or replacement, of certain FCDs, and installation of a placard in the flight deck. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-09218
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-05-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 737-200, -300, -400, and -500 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of cracks in the frame web common to the stringer ties adjacent to the air-conditioning support brackets. This AD requires an inspection of the frame for any air- conditioning bracket assembly or intercostal, and, depending on the results, repetitive inspections of the frame web for cracking of certain locations, and applicable on-condition actions. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Hoonah, AK
Document Number: 2018-09108
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-05-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to establish Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, at Hoonah Airport, Hoonah, AK, to accommodate 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.
Amendment of Class D and E Airspace and Revocation of Class E Airspace; Pocatello, ID
Document Number: 2018-09107
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-05-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action amends controlled airspace at Pocatello Regional Airport, Pocatello, ID, by amending Class D airspace and Class E airspace designated as a surface area; removing Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D or E surface area; and amending Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface. Also, this action updates the airport's geographic coordinates for the associated Class D and E airspace areas to reflect the FAA's current aeronautical database. Additionally, reference to the Pocatello VHF Omnidirectional Range/Tactical Air Navigation (VORTAC) is removed from the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface description. This action enhances the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airport.
Proposed Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace, and Revocation of Class E Airspace; Juneau, AK
Document Number: 2018-09106
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-05-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend Class D airspace, Class E surface area airspace, Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, and remove Class E airspace designated as an extension at Juneau International Airport, Juneau, AK. Airspace redesign is necessary as the FAA transitions from ground-based to satellite-based navigation for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airport. This proposal would also update the airport's geographic coordinates to match the FAA's aeronautical database for the associated Class D and E airspace areas, and would make an editorial change to the Class D airspace legal description replacing Airport/Facility Directory with the term Chart Supplement.
Proposed Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace; Moses Lake, WA
Document Number: 2018-09105
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-05-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to modify Class D airspace, Class E surface area airspace, Class E airspace designated as an extension, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 and 1,200 feet above the surface at Grant County International Airport (formerly Grant County Airport), Moses Lake, WA. This action also proposes to remove the Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) part-time status of Class E airspace designated as an extension, and update the airport name and geographic coordinates for the airport in the associated Class D and E airspace areas to match the FAA's aeronautical database. These changes are necessary to accommodate airspace redesign for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airport. Also, an editorial change would be made to the Class D and Class E airspace legal descriptions replacing ``Airport/Facility Directory'' with the term ``Chart Supplement''.
