Federal Aviation Administration May 7, 2013 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Plattsburgh, NY
Document Number: 2013-10814
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-05-07
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend Class E Airspace at Plattsburgh, NY, as the Clinton County Airport has closed and controlled airspace removed. New Class E Airspace at Plattsburgh International Airport would be created to accommodate standard instrument approach procedures developed at the airport. This action would enhance the safety and airspace management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations.
Airworthiness Directives; Piper Aircraft, Inc. Airplanes
Document Number: 2013-10786
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-05-07
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This document withdraws a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) that would have applied to all Piper Aircraft, Inc. (type certificate previously held by The New Piper Aircraft Inc.) Models PA-18 and PA-19 airplanes. The proposed airworthiness directive (AD) would have required either moving all toggle-style magneto switches located on the left cabin panel, adjacent to the front seat, away from this position; or replacing these switches with FAA-approved, non-keyed, rotary-style switches. Since issuance of the NPRM, the FAA has re-evaluated this airworthiness concern and determined that an unsafe condition does not exist that would warrant AD action. This withdrawal does not prevent the FAA from initiating future rulemaking on this subject.
Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Presidio, TX
Document Number: 2013-10163
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-05-07
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to establish Class E airspace at Presidio, TX. Controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAP) at Presidio Lely International Airport. The FAA is taking this action to enhance the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations for SIAPs at the airport.
