Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is publishing notice of proposed release of 0.589 acres of land at the Hanover County Airport, Hanover, Virginia to the Virginia Department of Transportation for the widening of Sliding Hill Road to allow for two lanes of traffic in each direction. There are no adverse impacts to the Airport and the land is not needed for airport development as shown on the Airport Layout Plan. Fair Market Value of the land has been established and will be provided to the County of Hanover for use on future AIP eligible Airport development. The Airport will benefit from the improvements associated with Sliding Hill Road with the enhanced access to the development on the east side of the airport.
Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace, Augusta, GA, and Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace, Waynesboro, GA
Document Number: 2018-16869
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-08-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface in Augusta, GA, by recognizing the name change of Augusta Regional Airport at Bush Field (formerly Augusta Regional at Bush Field Airport); removing Burke County Airport and Millen Airport from the airspace designation and establishing these two airports under Waynesboro, GA, designation; and updating the geographic coordinates of Daniel Field, Augusta, GA, and Millen Airport, Waynesboro, GA. This action would accommodate airspace reconfiguration due to the decommissioning of the Millen non- directional radio beacon (NDB) and cancellation of the NDB approach at Millen Airport. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at these airports.
Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace, Knoxville, TN; and Establishment of Class E Airspace, Madisonville, TN
Document Number: 2018-16865
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-08-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking proposes to move Monroe County Airport, Madisonville, TN, associated with the Knoxville, TN, McGhee-Tyson Airport, and establish it as stand-alone airspace with its own designation. This proposal is necessary to further the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at this airport.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-16733
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-08-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus SAS Model A321-111, -112, -131, -211, -212, -213, -231, and -232 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report that during removal of left-hand (LH) gear rib 5, four failed fasteners were discovered. This proposed AD would require a one-time ultrasonic inspection of the LH and right-hand (RH) wing rib 5-to-rear spar attachments for cracked or failed fasteners, and if necessary, a detailed inspection of the gear rib 5 and spar web for cracks and damage, a rotating probe test of the gear rib and spar web bolt holes for cracks and damage, reaming the gear rib and the spar web bolt holes, and replacement of cracked or failed fasteners. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce plc Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2018-16649
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-08-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Rolls-Royce plc (RR) Trent 1000-A2, Trent 1000-C2, Trent 1000-D2, Trent 1000-E2, Trent 1000-G2, Trent 1000-H2, Trent 1000-J2, Trent 1000-K2, and Trent 1000-L2 turbofan engine models. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of intermediate-pressure compressor (IPC) rotor seal failures. This proposed AD would require initial and repetitive on-wing borescope inspections (BSI) of affected IPC rotor seals, and removing any cracked parts from service. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Helicopters
Document Number: 2018-16638
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-08-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Airbus Helicopters Model EC225LP helicopters. This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections of each life raft inflation cylinder percussion system bellcrank (bellcrank). This proposed AD is prompted by reports of jammed bellcranks. The actions of this proposed AD are intended to prevent an unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-16504
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-08-09
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus SAS Model A318-111 and -112 airplanes, Model A319-111, -112, - 113, -114, and -115 airplanes, Model A320-211, -212, -214, and -216 airplanes, and Model A321-111, -112, -211, -212, and -213 airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report of a production quality deficiency on the inner retainer installed on link assemblies of the aft engine mount, which could result in failure of the retainer. This AD requires modifying and re-identifying the aft engine mount assemblies. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
