The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus Helicopters Model SA-365N, SA-365N1, AS-365N2, and AS 365 N3 helicopters. This AD was prompted by a report of an obstructed tail rotor (TR) pedal control that was blocked during flight. This AD requires a one-time inspection for proper positioning of the TR actuator harness and cable ties installation and, depending on the results, accomplishing corrective action, as specified in a European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which is incorporated by reference. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Modification of Restricted Areas R-4201A and R-4201B; Camp Grayling, MI
Document Number: 2024-13313
Type: Rule
Date: 2024-06-18
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action modifies the designated altitudes of restricted area R-4201B, Camp Grayling, MI, by raising the restricted area ceiling from 9,000 feet mean sea level (MSL) to 23,000 feet MSL to match the ceiling of the adjacent restricted area R-4201A, Camp Grayling, MI. Additionally, this action adds a "tie-in" boundary point in the R- 4201A boundaries description to ensure a shared R-4201A and R-4201B boundary. Lastly, this action makes minor administrative changes to the R-4201B time of designation information and the R-4201A and R-4201B using agency information to standardize the format of the information provided describing these restricted areas.

Amendment of VOR Federal Airways V-13, V-133, and V-300, and United States RNAV Route T-331; Establishment of Canadian RNAV Routes Q-924, T-765, T-776, and T-810; and Revocation of Jet Route J-533 and VOR Federal Airway V-348; Northcentral United States
Document Number: 2024-13178

Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action amends Very High Frequency Omnidirectional Range (VOR) Federal Airways V-13, V-133, and V-300, and United States (U.S.) Area Navigation (RNAV) Route T-331; establishes Canadian RNAV Routes Q- 924, T-765, T-776, and T-810 in U.S. airspace; and revokes Jet Route J- 533 and VOR Federal Airway V-348. The FAA is taking this action due to the planned decommissioning of the Thunder Bay, Ontario (ON), Canada, VOR navigational aid (NAVAID). This action supports NAV CANADA's NAVAID Modernization Program within Canada.

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2024-13150
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2024-06-18
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2023-04-06 and AD 2024-04-07, which apply to certain Airbus SAS Model A318, A319, A320 and A321 series airplanes. AD 2023-04-06 and AD 2024- 04-07 require revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations. Since the FAA issued AD 2023-04-06 and AD 2024-04-07, the FAA has determined that new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations are necessary. This proposed AD would continue to require certain actions in AD 2023-04-06 and AD 2024-04-07 and would require revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations, as specified in a European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which is proposed for incorporation by reference (IBR). The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Removal of Check Pilot Medical Certificate Requirement
Document Number: 2024-12621
Type: Rule
Date: 2024-06-18
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action finalizes the substantive relief proposed in the notice of proposed rulemaking entitled Removal of Check Pilot Medical Certificate Requirement. It removes inconsistencies applicable to the qualification requirements for check pilots and flight instructors in domestic, flag, and supplemental operations and flight instructors in commuter and on-demand operations so that check pilots, check flight engineers, and flight instructors can continue to perform their functions in aircraft without a medical certificate unless they are serving as required flightcrew members. It also removes the medical certificate requirement for flight instructors in commuter and on- demand operations who perform their functions in aircraft and are not serving as required flightcrew members. Removing the conflicting medical certificate requirement enables the utilization of pilots who are otherwise qualified to function as check pilots, check flight engineers, and flight instructors in aircraft. Finally, this final rule updates related terminology.
