Establishment of Class E Airspace; Fort Collins, CO
This action will establish Class E airspace at Fort Collins- Loveland Municipal Airport, Fort Collins, CO. Controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate Instrument flight rules (IFR) operations from this airport located in mountainous terrain and enable positive control at Fort Collins-Loveland Municipal Airport, Fort Collins, CO. This will enhance the safety and management of aircraft operations at Fort Collins-Loveland Municipal Airport, Fort Collins, CO.

The FAA is issuing this notice to advise the public of a meeting of RTCA Special Committee 220/Automatic Flight Guidance and Control.
Establishment of Colored and VOR Federal Airways; Alaska
This action establishes four Federal airways in the National Airspace System (NAS) to replace four non-part 95 routes in Alaska. The routes consist of three Very High Frequency Omnidirectional Range (VOR) Federal airways, and one Low/Medium Frequency (L/MF) Colored Federal airway in Alaska. The conversion of these non-part 95 routes would change uncharted nonregulatory airways requiring special aircrew authorization to Federal Airways, thus adding to the instrument flight rules (IFR) airway and route infrastructure in Alaska. The addition of these routes improves the management of air traffic operations and thereby enhances safety. A minor change to the description of V-619 also is being made.
Establishment of Low Altitude Area Navigation Routes (T-Routes); Sacramento and San Francisco, CA
This action delays the effective date for the establishment of four low altitude Area Navigation (RNAV) T-routes, designated T-257, T- 259, T-261 and T-263, in the Sacramento and San Francisco, CA, terminal areas until September 25, 2008. The FAA is taking this action to allow additional time for processing and charting.
Airworthiness Directives; International Aero Engines AG (IAE) V2500 Series Turbofan Engines
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for IAE V2500-A1, V2522-A5, V2524-A5, V2527-A5, V2527E-A5, V2527M-A5, V2530-A5, V2533-A5, V2525-D5, and V2528-D5 turbofan engines. This AD requires removing certain No. 4 bearing oil system components from service at the next shop visit or by an end date determined by the engine model. This AD results from instances of oil loss from the No. 4 bearing compartment. We are issuing this AD to prevent heat damage to high- pressure turbine (HPT) and low-pressure turbine (LPT) critical life limited hardware such as the HPT stage 1-2 airseal. Damage to the HPT stage 1-2 airseal could cause uncontained engine failure and damage to the airplane.
