Proposed Modification of Offshore Airspace Areas: Norton Sound Low, Control 1234L and Control 1487L; Alaska
Document Number: 2011-14715
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-06-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to modify the Norton Sound Low, Control 1234L, and Control 1487L Offshore Airspace Areas in Alaska. The airspace floors would be lowered to provide controlled airspace beyond 12 miles from the coast of the United States given that there is a requirement to provide Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) en route Air Traffic Control (ATC) services and within which the United States is applying domestic ATC procedures.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Model 747-100, 747-100B, 747-100B SUD, 747-200B, 747-200C, 747-200F, 747-300, 747-400, 747-400D, 747-400F, 747SR, and 747SP Series Airplanes
Document Number: 2011-14697
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-06-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This proposed AD would require modification of the fluid drain path in the leading edge area of the wing. This proposed AD was prompted by a design review following a ground fire incident and reports of flammable fluid leaks from the wing leading edge area onto the engine exhaust area. We are proposing this AD to prevent flammable fluid from leaking onto the engine exhaust nozzle, which could result in a fire.

This action enhances the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport. Also, the geographic coordinates for the airport will be corrected.

This document notifies the public of a change in the Office of Management and Budget's approval control number for certain information collection. The rule titled ``Washington, DC Metropolitan Area Special Flight Rules Area'' was published on December 16, 2008.
