Notice of Availability of a Record of Decision (ROD) and Order for a Written Reevaluation of Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the Development and Expansion of Runway 9R-27L and Associated Projects at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport
The FAA is issuing this notice to advise the public that it has issued a ROD and Order for a written reevaluation of the FEIS for the Development and Expansion of Runway 9R-27L and Associated Projects at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, Broward County, Florida. The FEIS for the runway expansion project was issued in June 2008. The FAA issued a ROD for this Federal action in December 2008. The runway expansion and other associated airport projects are currently undergoing final engineering and design. Construction activities are scheduled to begin in the summer of 2011. The Broward County (the Airport Sponsor) has submitted a request to the FAA for approval of the engineering and design refinements that are minor changes to the previously approved project. The ROD and Order approves the engineering and design refinements to the previously approved project disclosed in the written reevaluation and as shown on a revised Airport Layout Plan (ALP) that has been submitted to the FAA. Subsequent to this ROD and Order, the FAA will approve the revised ALP.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Model 747 Airplanes and Model 767 Airplanes Equipped With General Electric Model CF6-80C2 or CF6-80A Series Engines
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This AD requires revising the airplane flight manual (AFM) to advise the flightcrew to use certain procedures during descent in certain icing conditions. This AD was prompted by reports of several in-flight engine flameouts, including multiple dual engine flameout events and one total power loss event, in ice-crystal icing conditions. We are issuing this AD to ensure that the flightcrew has the proper procedures to follow in certain icing conditions. These certain icing conditions could cause a multiple engine flameout during flight with the potential inability to restart the engines, and consequent forced landing of the airplane.
