Federal Aviation Administration June 22, 2018 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Proposed Establishment and Modification of Area Navigation Routes, Atlantic Coast Route Project; Northeastern United States
Document Number: 2018-13377
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-06-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is withdrawing the NPRM published in the Federal Register on January 5, 2017, proposing to establish 12 high altitude area navigation (RNAV) routes (Q-routes), and modify one existing Q- route, in support of the Atlantic Coast Route Project (ACRP). The FAA reviewed project scoping and determined that additional planning is warranted to ensure a more efficient implementation and integration with other ongoing program activities, and determined that withdrawal of the proposed rule is warranted.
Amendment and Removal of VOR Federal Airways in the Vicinity of Lansing, MI, and Pontiac, MI
Document Number: 2018-13376
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-06-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action modifies VHF Omnidirectional Range (VOR) Federal airways V-2, V-26, V-84, V-218, and V-510 in the vicinity of Lansing, MI, and removes airway V-410 in the vicinity of Pontiac, MI. These modifications are required due to the planned decommissioning of the Lansing, MI, VHF Omnidirectional Range/Tactical Air Navigation (VORTAC) and the Pontiac, MI, VORTAC navigation aids, which provide navigation guidance for portions of the above routes.
Modification to Restricted Area R-5601F and Establishment of Restricted Area R-5601J; Fort Sill, OK
Document Number: 2018-13375
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-06-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action amends the restricted areas at Fort Sill, OK, to subdivide R-5601F into two subareas, R-5601F and R-5601J, make a minor correction to one boundary point in R-5601G, and to update and standardize the using agency information for each restricted area in the Fort Sill restricted area complex. The FAA is taking this action to allow for more efficient use of the airspace during periods when military activities only require the eastern portions of the restricted area complex. The airspace modifications are fully contained within the existing lateral and vertical boundaries of the Fort Sill, OK, restricted airspace. The using agency information update to each of the restricted areas in the Fort Sill complex is editorial only.
Amendment of Class E Airspace; Kenansville, NC
Document Number: 2018-13374
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-06-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action amends Class E airspace at Duplin County Airport, Kenansville, NC, to accommodate airspace reconfiguration due to the decommissioning of the Kenan 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 this airport. This action also updates the geographic coordinates of this airport.
Amendment of Class E Airspace; Altoona, PA
Document Number: 2018-13373
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-06-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action amends amend Class E surface area airspace and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface at Altoona-Blair County Airport, Altoona, PA. This action accommodates airspace reconfiguration due to the decommissioning of Altoona VHF omnidirectional range navigation system (VOR) and cancellation of the VOR approaches. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at this airport.
Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace, Bloomsburg, PA
Document Number: 2018-13371
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-06-22
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 Bloomsburg, PA, due to the decommissioning of the Milton very high frequency omni- directional range collocated tactical air navigation aid (VORTAC) which requires airspace reconfiguration at Bloomsburg Municipal 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.
Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Chebeague Island, ME
Document Number: 2018-13370
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-06-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to establish Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Chebeague Island Heliport, Chebeague Island, ME, to accommodate new area navigation (RNAV) global positioning system (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures serving the heliport. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at this heliport.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-13335
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-06-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model DHC-8-400 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of broken P-clamps on the pressure relief line and the motive flow line in the left and right fuel tanks, and fouling conditions between the motive flow line and the collector tank partition wall in both fuel tanks. This proposed AD would require, depending on airplane configuration: Increasing the hole size in the collector tank partition wall, inspecting the motive flow line for damage, and replacing the associated grommet and motive flow line; replacing the affected single nut plate brackets and standoffs at the affected stations on the motive flow line and pressure relief line; and inspecting the motive flow line and vent line at certain wing stations, and inspecting the fuel tubes, to verify that an appropriate clearance has been maintained between the fuel tubes and their support brackets, and applicable corrective actions. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-13334
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-06-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model CL-600-2B16 (CL-604 Variants) airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of floodlight lamps found burned and the corresponding circuit breaker tripped as a result of fluid entering the cockpit floodlight fixtures. This proposed AD would require installation of a new gasket seal on floodlight fixtures. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Dassault Aviation
Document Number: 2018-13333
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-06-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Dassault Aviation Model MYSTERE-FALCON 200 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a determination that more restrictive maintenance requirements and airworthiness limitations are necessary. This proposed AD would require revising the maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new or more restrictive maintenance requirements and airworthiness limitations. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
