Federal Aviation Administration October 18, 2010 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce plc (RR) RB211-524 Series Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2010-26115
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-10-18
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action revises an earlier proposed airworthiness directive (AD), applicable to certain RR RB211-524 series turbofan engines. That proposal would have required initial and repetitive borescope inspections of the head section and meterpanel assembly of the combustion liner, and replacement if necessary with serviceable parts. That proposal was prompted by an inquiry submitted by an operator, which resulted in RR performing a complete review of the affected front combustion liner part numbers (P/Ns). This action revises the proposed rule by clarifying the applicability paragraph (c) of the proposed AD. We are proposing this AD to prevent deterioration of the engine combustion liner, which can result in combustion liner breakup, case burn-through, engine fire, and damage to the airplane.
Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Panguitch, UT
Document Number: 2010-26096
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-10-18
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking would expand controlled Class E airspace to include a portion extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface at Panguitch Municipal Airport, Panguitch, UT. In an NPRM published in the Federal Register June 28, 2010, the FAA proposed to establish controlled airspace from 700 feet above the surface. The FAA has reassessed the proposal to include Class E airspace 700 feet and 1,200 feet above the surface to further the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport.
Establishment of Class E Airspace; Kalaupapa, HI
Document Number: 2010-26095
Type: Rule
Date: 2010-10-18
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action will establish Class E airspace at Kalaupapa, HI, to accommodate aircraft using a new Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) at Kalaupapa Airport. This will improve the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport.
Revocation of Class C Airspace, Establishment of Class D Airspace, and Modification of Class E Airspace; Columbus, GA
Document Number: 2010-26094
Type: Rule
Date: 2010-10-18
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action removes the Columbus, GA, Class C airspace area; establishes Class D airspace to replace the Class C airspace; and amends the existing Class E surface area and 700 foot Class E airspace at Columbus, GA. The FAA is taking this action because Columbus Metropolitan Airport no longer meets the criteria required to qualify for a Class C airspace designation. Reconfiguring the airspace facilitates more efficient use of airspace in the Columbus, GA area. A minor correction to the geographic coordinates for Lawson Army Airfield (AAF) also will be made.
Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace; Klamath Falls, OR
Document Number: 2010-26091
Type: Rule
Date: 2010-10-18
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action will amend Class D and Class E airspace at Klamath Falls, OR. Decommissioning of the Merrill Non-Directional Radio Beacon (NDB) at Klamath Falls Airport has made this action necessary for the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport. This action also will adjust the geographic coordinates of the airport and a navigation aid, and will change the name of the airport.
Standard Instrument Approach Procedures, and Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures; Miscellaneous Amendments
Document Number: 2010-25842
Type: Rule
Date: 2010-10-18
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This 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.
