This action corrects a final rule published in the Federal Register on August 23, 2018, amending Class D airspace and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface at New Smyrna Beach Municipal Airport, New Smyrna Beach, FL. The longitude coordinate symbols for Massey Ranch Airpark listed in Class E airspace areas extending upward from 700 feet were typed as degrees, minutes, minutes instead of degrees, minutes, and seconds.

Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; Clearance of Reinstate Approval of Information Collection: Aviation Insurance
Document Number: 2018-19975
Type: Notice
Date: 2018-09-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FAA invites public comments about our intention to request the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to reinstate an information collection. The collection involves obtaining basic information from new aviation insurance applicants about eligible aviation insurance applicants needed to establish a legally binding, non-premium insurance policy with the FAA, as requested by another Federal agency, such as the applicants name and address, and the aircraft to be covered by the policy. The information collected will be used to determine whether applicants are eligible for Chapter 443 insurance and the amount of coverage necessary; populate non-premium insurance policies with the legal name and address; and meet conditions of coverage required by each insurance policy. As a condition of coverage, air carriers will be required to submit any changes to the basic information initially submitted on the application, as necessary. Air carrier's will also be responsible for providing a copy of their current commercial insurance policy on an ongoing basis, and aircraft registration and serial numbers for any new aircraft the air carrier would like to add to the policy. This information will form part of a legally binding agreement (i.e., insurance policy) between the FAA and air carrier. Failure to provide this updated information could result in lack or denial of coverage.

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-19838
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-09-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are revising an earlier proposal for certain The Boeing Company Model 737-600, -700, -700C, -800, -900, and -900ER series airplanes. This action revises the notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) by adding airplanes to the applicability and adding a measurement of the distance between the hooks of the torsion spring of the lanyard assembly. We are proposing this airworthiness directive (AD) to address the unsafe condition on these products. Since these actions would impose an additional burden over those in the NPRM, we are reopening the comment period to allow the public the chance to comment on these changes.
Airworthiness Directives; Honeywell International Inc. Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2018-19798
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-09-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2017-20- 01, which applies to certain Honeywell International Inc. (Honeywell) TFE731-20 and TFE731-40 turbofan engines. AD 2017-20-01 requires removing the affected fan disk and replacing it with a fan disk eligible for installation. Since we issued AD 2017-20-01, we determined that some turbofan engine models were omitted from the applicability of AD 2017-20-01. This proposed AD would add these turbofan engine models to the applicability, remove the Honeywell TFE731-20 turbofan engine from the applicability, and prohibit installation of affected fan disks. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Zodiac Seats France, Cabin Attendant Seats
Document Number: 2018-19797
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-09-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Zodiac Seats France 536-Series Cabin Attendant Seats. This proposed AD was prompted by potential risk of premature corrosion on the seat structure and clamps. This proposed AD would require inspection and modification of all Zodiac Seats France 536-Series Cabin Attendant Seats. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-19767
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-09-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus SAS Model A350-941 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a determination that certain holes for the vertical tail plane (VTP) tension bolts connection are not properly protected against corrosion. This proposed AD would require modifying the VTP tension bolts connection by adding sealant and protective treatment to the head of the connection, at the barrel nut cavities, and in the surrounding area. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes
Document Number: 2018-19759
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-09-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2010-14- 05, which applies to certain Bombardier, Inc., Model CL-600-1A11 (600), CL-600-2A12 (601), and CL-600-2B16 (601-3A, 601-3R, and 604 Variants) airplanes. AD 2010-14-05 requires inspection for the part numbers of the system and brake accumulators, and repetitive replacement of affected accumulators. Since we issued AD 2010-14-05, we have determined that new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations, as well as additional actions, are necessary to address the unsafe condition. In addition to the requirements of AD 2010-14-05, this proposed AD would require relocating the accumulators and revising the maintenance or inspection program to incorporate new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations. This proposed AD would also add optional terminating action for certain airplanes. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
