Establishment of Restricted Area R-2502A; Fort Irwin, CA
Document Number: E9-23879
Type: Rule
Date: 2009-10-05
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action establishes a restricted area (R-2502A) at Fort Irwin, CA, as part of a Department of the Army initiative at the National Training Center (NTC). The NTC is being expanded to meet the critical need of the Army for additional training land and airspace suitable for maneuvering large numbers of military personnel and equipment. Additionally, the Silver military operation area (MOA) in the vicinity of the NTC Complex has been modified as part of this initiative. Unlike restricted areas, which are designated under Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 73, MOAs are not rulemaking airspace actions. However, since the R-2502A will infringe on the Silver MOA, the FAA is including a description of the Silver MOA change in this rule. The MOA change described here was published in the National Flight Data Digest (NFDD). The Army requested these airspace changes to provide the additional special use airspace (SUA) above the expanded ground maneuver area to facilitate realistic combat training at the NTC.

Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 757 Airplanes
Document Number: E9-23421
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2009-09-29
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Boeing Model 757 airplanes. This proposed AD would require inspecting to verify the part number of the low-pressure flex-hoses of the flightcrew and supernumerary oxygen system installed under the oxygen mask stowage box at a flightcrew and supernumerary oxygen mask location, and replacing with a new non-conductive low-pressure flex- hose of the oxygen system if necessary.

Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 747-100, 747-200B, 747-300, and 747SR Series Airplanes
Document Number: E9-23190
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2009-09-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are revising an earlier proposed airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Boeing Model 747-100, 747-200B, 747-300, and 747SR series airplanes. The original NPRM proposed to require installation of a closeout panel and moisture curtains for the main equipment center. The original NPRM also proposed to require changing the drain tubes for the power drive units (PDU) and the pitot static tubes and installing larger moisture shrouds. The original NPRM resulted from a report of water contamination in the electrical and electronic units in the main equipment center. This action revises the original NPRM by adding airplanes to the applicability and removing certain others, and removing certain requirements. We are proposing this supplemental NPRM to prevent the malfunction of one or more electrical and electronic units in the main equipment center, which could adversely affect the airplane's continued safe flight.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A330 and A340 Airplanes

This proposed AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated 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:
Standard Instrument Approach Procedures, and Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures; Miscellaneous Amendments
Document Number: E9-22072
Type: Rule
Date: 2009-09-24
Agency: Department of Transportation, Federal Aviation Administration
This rule establishes, amends, suspends, or revokes Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) and associated Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures for operations at certain airports. These regulatory actions are needed because of the adoption of new or revised criteria, or because of changes occurring in the National Airspace System, such as the commissioning of new navigational facilities, adding new obstacles, or changing air traffic requirements. These changes are designed to provide safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace and to promote safe flight operations under instrument flight rules at the affected airports.

Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Red Oak, IA
Document Number: E9-22844
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2009-09-22
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend Class E airspace at Red Oak, IA. Additional controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) at Red Oak Municipal Airport, Red Oak, IA. This action would also update the geographic coordinates of Red Oak Municipal Airport and the Red Oak NDB to coincide with the FAA's National Aeronautical Charting Office. The FAA is taking this action to enhance the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations for SIAPs at Red Oak Municipal Airport.
