Federal Aviation Administration August 10, 2018 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Amendment of Class E Airspace; Lansing, MI
Document Number: 2018-17100
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-08-10
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action modifies Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Capital Region International Airport, Lansing, MI. This action is the result of an airspace review due to the decommissioning of the Lansing VHF omnidirectional range (VOR) navigation aid as part of the VOR Minimum Operational Network (MON) Program. The geographic coordinates and name of the airport are also updated to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database. An editorial change is also made to the airspace legal designation by removing the city from the airport name.
Establishment of Class E Airspace; Freeport, PA
Document Number: 2018-17099
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-08-10
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface in Freeport, PA, to accommodate new area navigation (RNAV) global positioning system (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures serving McVille Airport. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at this airport.
Revocation of Class E Airspace; St Marys, GA
Document Number: 2018-17089
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-08-10
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action removes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at St Marys, GA, because St Marys Airport has closed, and controlled airspace is no longer required at this location.
Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace; Biloxi, MS, and Gulfport, MS
Document Number: 2018-17088
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-08-10
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action amends Class D airspace, and Class E surface airspace, in addition to removing the NOTAM part-time status from Class E airspace designated as an extension, and amending Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Keesler Air Force Base (AFB), Biloxi, MS, and Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport, (formerly Gulfport-Biloxi Regional Airport), Gulfport, MS. The geographic coordinates for these airports and the Keesler TACAN navigation aid are adjusted in the associated Class D and E airspace to match the FAA's aeronautical database. Also, this action replaces the outdated term ``Airport/Facility Directory'' with the term ``Chart Supplement'' in the Class D and Class E surface area legal descriptions. This action enhances the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at these airports.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-16735
Type: Rule
Date: 2018-08-10
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus SAS Model A318, A319, and A320 series airplanes, and Model A321- 111, -112, -131, -211, -212, -213, -231, -232, -251N, -253N, and -271N airplanes. This AD was prompted by a revision of an airworthiness limitations document that specifies more restrictive maintenance requirements and airworthiness limitations. This AD requires revising the maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate the specified maintenance requirements and airworthiness limitations. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Dassault Aviation Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-16732
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-08-10
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Dassault Aviation Model FAN JET FALCON, and FAN JET FALCON SERIES C, D, E, F, and G airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a determination of the need for a revision to the airplane airworthiness limitations to introduce changes to the maintenance requirements and airworthiness limitations. This proposed AD would require revising the maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new airworthiness limitations and maintenance requirements. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Dassault Aviation Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-16573
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-08-10
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Dassault Aviation Model FALCON 7X 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 and more restrictive maintenance requirements and airworthiness limitations for airplane structures and systems. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-16501
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-08-10
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus SAS Model A330-200 Freighter, A330-200, and A330-300 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a revision of a certain airworthiness limitations item (ALI) document, which specifies new or more restrictive maintenance instructions and airworthiness limitations, and a determination that those maintenance instructions and airworthiness limitations are necessary. This proposed AD would require revising the maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new or revised maintenance instructions and airworthiness limitations. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Dassault Aviation Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-16498
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-08-10
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Dassault Aviation Model Falcon 10 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.
