Pilot, Flight Instructor, and Pilot School Certification; Correction
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is making several corrections to its ``Pilot, Flight Instructor, and Pilot School Certification'' final rule published in the Federal Register on August 21, 2009. The FAA corrections include standardizing certain part 61 time period durations from ``60 days'' to now read ``2 calendar months.'' We are also correcting an omission and errors to the prerequisite eligibility requirements for use of flight simulators. Additionally, we are correcting the duration of a student pilot certificate to 60 calendar months for a student pilot seeking a sport pilot certificate. Finally, we are correcting a sentence in the preamble to conform with the final rule regarding the use of flight training devices.
Proposed Amendment of Class D Airspace; St Louis, MO
This action proposes to amend Class D airspace at St Louis, MO. Additional controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) at Spirit of St Louis Airport, St Louis, MO. The FAA is taking this action to enhance the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations for SIAPs at Spirit of St Louis Airport.
Establishment of VOR Federal Airway V-626; UT
This action establishes VOR Federal Airway 626 (V-626) located between the Myton, UT, Very High Frequency Omnidirectional Range/ Tactical Air Navigation (VORTAC) and the Salt Lake City terminal area. This route will improve aircraft flow during busy traffic periods into the Salt Lake City terminal area, and provide a more precise means of navigation and reduce controller workload.
Modification of Restricted Areas and Other Special Use Airspace; Fallon, NV
This action amends the time of designation and using agency of nine restricted areas located in the vicinity of the Fallon Naval Air Station (NAS), Fallon, NV, as part of a Department of the Navy initiative to standardize the operating hours throughout the Fallon Airspace Complex. The times of use are being expanded to meet the critical need of the Navy for additional nighttime training, and the using agency changes are administrative in accordance with a Navy realignment of functions. Additionally, this action modifies the times of use of the four military operation areas (MOAs) in the Fallon Airspace Complex. Unlike restricted areas, which are designated under 14 CFR part 73, MOAs are not rulemaking airspace actions. The MOA changes described here were published in the National Flight Data Digest (NFDD). The Navy requested these airspace changes to provide additional night training time to meet combat readiness requirements currently being carried out in accordance with 14 CFR 99.7.
