This action establishes 14 VOR Federal Airways (V-176, V-383, V-396, V-406, V-410, V-418, V-426, V-486, V-416, V-467, V-542, V-584, V-586, and V-609); modifies 12 VOR Federal Airways (V-14, V-26, V-40, V-72, V-75, V-90, V-96, V-103, V-116, V-297, V-435, and V-526); and revokes one VOR Federal Airway (V-42) over the East Central United States in support of the Midwest Airspace Enhancement Plan (MASE). It should be noted that the FAA is withdrawing the proposal to establish VOR Federal Airway V-414 and delaying action to establish V-65 and modify V-133. Additionally, editorial changes are made to route numbers and the order of route elements for V-176, V-383, V-410, V-426, V-467, and V-486. The FAA is taking this action to enhance safety and to improve the efficient use of the navigable airspace assigned to the Chicago, Cleveland, and Indianapolis Air Route Traffic Control Centers (ARTCC).
Revision of Class D/E Airspace; Big Delta, Allen Army Airfield, Fort Greely, AK
Document Number: E7-597
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-01-18
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action revises Class D and E airspace at Allen Army Airfield (AAF), AK. The United States Army has decided to staff the Allen AAF air traffic control tower (ATCT) part time. The Class D and E airspace is being revised in order to align Class D airspace effective times to match ATCT hours of operation. The current title of the airspace described in FAA Order 7400.9P is also changing to reflect current guidance in FAA Order 7400.2E. This rule results in the revision of Class D and E airspace at Allen AAF, Delta Junction, AK.
Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce plc RB211 Series Turbofan Engines; Correction.
Document Number: E7-497
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-01-18
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This document makes corrections to Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2006-17-12. That AD applies to Rolls-Royce plc RB211 series turbofan engines. We published AD 2006-17-12 in the Federal Register on August 23, 2006 (71 FR 49339). An incorrect engine model number exists in the applicability paragraph and in the title of Table 5. Also, an incorrect serial number appears in Table 1. This document corrects these numbers. In all other respects, the original document remains the same.
Airworthiness Directives; Dassault Model F2000EX Airplanes
Document Number: E7-490
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-01-18
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as incorrect monitoring of the fire detection system; therefore, its integrity is not guaranteed at all times. This AD requires actions that are intended to address the unsafe condition described in the MCAI.
