Amendment of Restricted Areas R-6703A, B, C, D; and Establishment of Restricted Areas R-6703E, F, G, H, I, and J; WA
This action modifies the internal boundaries of R-6703 by further subdividing the airspace from the current four subareas (A through D) to ten subareas (A through J). This change is totally contained within the current outer boundaries of R-6703. The designated altitudes and time of designation remain as currently published. In addition, the name ``Fort Lewis, WA,'' in the titles of the restricted areas is changed to ``Joint Base Lewis-McChord, WA. The name of the using agency is changed from ``Commanding General, Fort Lewis, WA,'' to ``Joint Base Garrison Commander, Joint Base Lewis-McChord, WA.'' The name changes are the result of Department of Defense organizational consolidations. In addition to better accommodating training requirements, this also allows more efficient use of airspace through increased ability to activate only those subareas actually needed for the mission.
This action proposes to establish two new low-altitude RNAV routes, designated T-287 and T-299, in the Washington, DC area. The new routes would enhance the flow of air traffic to the west of the Washington-Dulles International Airport.

Termination of the Preparation of an Air Tour Management Plan and Environmental Assessment for Petrified Forest National Park, Arizona
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), in cooperation with the National Park Service (NPS), announces that it will no longer prepare an Air Tour Management Plan (ATMP) and Environmental Assessment (EA) for commercial air tour operations over Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona. The FAA and NPS have stopped work on preparation of the ATMP and EA based upon a provision included in the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 (Pub.

The FAA is proposing this action to enhance the safety and management of aircraft operations at the airport.
Airworthiness Directives; Cessna Aircraft Company Airplanes
The FAA is correcting an airworthiness directive (AD) that published in the Federal Register. That AD applies to all Cessna Aircraft Company (Cessna) Models 190, 195 (L-126A,B,C), 195A, and 195B airplanes that are equipped with certain inboard aileron hinge brackets. The AD docket number in the preamble section and the rule portion of the AD is incorrect. Also, the statement that no comments on the notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) were received is incorrect. This document corrects these errors. In all other respects, the original document remains the same.
