Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 757 Airplanes
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Boeing Model 757 airplanes. This proposed AD would require installing a control wheel damper assembly at the first officer's drum bracket assembly and aileron quadrant beneath the flight deck floor in section 41; doing a functional test and adjustment of the new installation; and doing related investigative/corrective actions if necessary. For certain airplanes, this proposed AD would require doing an additional adjustment test of the re-located control wheel position sensor, and an operational test of the flight data recorder and the digital flight data acquisition unit. This proposed AD also would require installing vortex generators (vortilons) on the leading edge of the outboard main flap on certain airplanes. This proposed AD results from several reports that flightcrews experienced unintended roll oscillations during final approach, just before landing. We are proposing this AD to prevent unintended roll oscillations near touchdown, which could result in loss of directional control of the airplane, and consequent airplane damage and/or injury to flightcrew and passengers.
Proposed Revision of Class E Airspace; Valdez, AK
This action proposes to modify the Class E airspace at Valdez, AK. Two new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) and one revised SIAP are being published for the Valdez Airport.

Proposed Revision of Class E Airspace; Saint Paul Island, AK
This action proposes to modify Class E airspace at St. Paul Island, AK. A new Standard Instrument Approach Procedure (SIAP) is being published for the St. Paul Island Airport along with five SIAP revisions.

Modification of Offshore Airspace Areas: Gulf of Alaska Low and Control 1487L; AK
This action amends the Gulf of Alaska Low and Control 1487L Offshore airspace areas in Alaska. Specifically, this action modifies the Gulf of Alaska Low and Control 1487L airspace areas in the vicinity of the Yakutat Airport, Yakutat, AK, by lowering the affected controlled airspace floor to 700 feet mean sea level (MSL) for the Gulf of Alaska Low, and 1,200 feet MSL for Control 1487L. The FAA is taking this action to provide additional controlled airspace for the safety of aircraft executing instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the Yakutat Airport.
Public Notice for a Change in Use of Aeronautical Property at Bradford Regional Airport, Lewis Run, PA
The Federal Aviation Administration is requesting public comment on the Bradford Regional Airport Authority's request to change a portion (23.48 Acres) of airport property from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use.
