Federal Aviation Administration October 2, 2009 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Special Conditions: Boeing Model 747-8/-8F Airplanes, Systems and Data Networks Security-Protection of Airplane Systems and Data Networks From Unauthorized External Access
Document Number: E9-23753
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2009-10-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes special conditions for the Boeing Model 747-8/-8F airplane. This airplane will have novel or unusual design features associated with the architecture and connectivity capabilities of the airplane's computer systems and networks, which may allow access to external computer systems and networks. Connectivity to external systems and networks may result in security vulnerabilities to the airplane's systems. The applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for these design features. These proposed special conditions contain the additional safety standards that the Administrator considers necessary to establish a level of safety equivalent to that established by the existing airworthiness standards.
IFR Altitudes; Miscellaneous Amendments
Document Number: E9-23752
Type: Rule
Date: 2009-10-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This amendment adopts miscellaneous amendments to the required IFR (instrument flight rules) altitudes and changeover points for certain Federal airways, jet routes, or direct routes for which a minimum or maximum en route authorized IFR altitude is prescribed. This regulatory action is needed because of changes occurring in the National Airspace System. These changes are designed to provide for the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace under instrument conditions in the affected areas.
Proposed Amendment to Class E Airspace; Riverton, WY
Document Number: E9-23751
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2009-10-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend Class E airspace at Riverton Regional Airport, Riverton, WY. Additional controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate aircraft using the VHF Omni-Directional Radio Range (VOR), Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) Standard Instrument Approach Procedure (SIAP) at Riverton Regional Airport, Riverton, WY. This will improve the safety of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) aircraft executing the VOR (RNAV) GPS (SIAP) at Riverton Regional Airport, Riverton, WY.
