Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; McMinnville, TN
Document Number: 2013-23219
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-09-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend Class E Airspace at McMinnville, TN, as the Warri Non-Directional Beacon (NDB) has been decommissioned and new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures have been developed at Warren County Memorial Airport. This action would enhance the safety and airspace management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport.

Document Number: 2013-23218
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-09-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to establish Class E airspace at Donlin Creek Airport, Donlin Creek, AK.

The FAA is proposing this action to enhance the safety and management of aircraft operations at the airport.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2013-23076
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-09-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 737-600, -700, -700C, -800, -900, and -900ER series airplanes, and Model 777 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by testing reports on certain Honeywell phase 3 display units (DUs). These DUs exhibited susceptibility to radio frequency emissions in WiFi frequency bands at radiated power levels below the levels that the displays are required to tolerate for certification of WiFi system installations. The phase 3 DUs provide primary flight information including airspeed, altitude, pitch and roll attitude, heading, and navigation information to the flightcrew. This proposed AD would require replacing the existing phase 3 DUs with new phase 3A DUs and installing new DU database software. We are proposing this AD to prevent loss of flight-critical information displayed to the flightcrew during a critical phase of flight, such as an approach or takeoff, which could result in loss of airplane control at an altitude insufficient for recovery, or controlled flight into terrain or obstacles.
