Federal Aviation Administration January 8, 2014 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Paragould, AR
Document Number: 2014-00116
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-01-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend Class E airspace at Paragould, AR. Decommissioning of the Paragould non-directional radio beacon (NDB) at Kirk Field has made reconfiguration necessary for standard instrument approach procedures and for the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport. Geographic coordinates also would be updated.
Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Holdrege, NE
Document Number: 2014-00114
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-01-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend Class E airspace at Holdrege, NE. Decommissioning of the Holdrege non-directional radio beacon (NDB) at Brewster Field Airport has made airspace reconfiguration necessary for standard instrument approach procedures and for the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport. Geographic coordinates also would be adjusted.
Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Warsaw, MO
Document Number: 2014-00113
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-01-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to establish Class E airspace at Warsaw, MO. Controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAP) at Warsaw Municipal Airport. The FAA is taking this action to enhance the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations for SIAPs at the airport.
Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Jefferson City, MO
Document Number: 2014-00107
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-01-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend Class E airspace at Jefferson City, MO. Decommissioning of the Noah non-directional radio beacon (NDB) at Jefferson City Memorial Airport has made reconfiguration necessary for standard instrument approach procedures and for the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport.
Proposed Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace; Traverse City, MI
Document Number: 2014-00106
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-01-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend Class D and Class E airspace at Traverse City, MI. Additional controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAP) at Cherry Capital Airport. Geographic coordinates of the airport also would be adjusted. The FAA is taking this action to enhance the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations for SIAPs at the airport.
Special Conditions: Airbus, Model A350-900 Series Airplane; Lateral Trim Function Through Differential Flap Setting
Document Number: 2014-00105
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-01-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes special conditions for the Airbus Model A350-900 series airplanes. These airplanes will have a novel or unusual design feature associated with a lateral trim function that deploys flaps asymmetrically for airplane lateral trim control. This function replaces the traditional method of providing airplane lateral trim over a small range through flap and aileron mechanical rigging. The applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for this design feature. These proposed special conditions contain the additional safety standards that the Administrator considers necessary to establish a level of safety equivalent to that established by the existing airworthiness standards.
Special Conditions: Airbus, A350-900 Series Airplane; Crashworthiness-Emergency Landing Conditions
Document Number: 2014-00104
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-01-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes special conditions for the Airbus Model A350-900 series airplanes. These airplanes will have a novel or unusual design feature associated with crashworthiness of carbon fiber reinforced plastic used in the construction of the fuselage. The applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for this design feature. These proposed special conditions contain the additional safety standards that the Administrator considers necessary to establish a level of safety equivalent to that established by the existing airworthiness standards.
Special Conditions: Airbus, Model A350-900 Series Airplane; Airplane Level of Safety Provided by Composite Fuel Tank Structure: Post-Crash Fire Survivability.
Document Number: 2014-00102
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-01-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes special conditions for Airbus Model A350- 900 series airplanes. These airplanes will have a novel or unusual design feature(s) associated with the post-crash fire survivability of composite fuel tanks. The applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for this design feature. These proposed special conditions contain the additional safety standards that the Administrator considers necessary to establish a level of safety equivalent to that established by the existing airworthiness standards.
Special Conditions: Airbus, Model A350-900 Series Airplane; Flight Envelope Protection: High Speed Limiting
Document Number: 2014-00100
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-01-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes special conditions for Airbus Model A350- 900 series airplanes. These airplanes will have a novel or unusual design feature associated with high speed limiting. The applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for this design feature. These proposed special conditions contain the additional safety standards that the Administrator considers necessary to establish a level of safety equivalent to that established by the existing airworthiness standards.
Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce plc Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2014-00083
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-01-08
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Rolls-Royce plc (RR) RB211-524G2-19, RB211-524G3-19, RB211-524H-36, and RB211-524H2-19 turbofan engines. This AD requires a one-time reduction in the cyclic life of certain high-pressure (HP) compressor rotor stage 1 and stage 2 discs, and removal of discs that exceed the reduced cycle life. This AD was prompted by a review by RR of the cyclic life of life-limited parts (LLPs) for RB211-524 series engines. We are issuing this AD to prevent the failure of certain LLPs, which could result in uncontained engine damage and damage to the airplane.
