Date: 2014-04-11
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes to rule and invites public comment on the application for a non-aeronautical land- use change of approximately 23.06 acres of airport property at A.B. Won Pat Guam International Airport, Tamuning, Guam from the aeronautical use provisions of the Quitclaim Deed and Grant Agreement Assurances since the land is not needed for the purpose for which it was conveyed. The property will be used to grant an easement to the Government of Guam for the construction of a roadway in exchange for which the Airport Authority will be fairly compensated. The project will improve traffic flow and better utilize the airport property to enhance transportation at and around the airport. The use of the land for a roadway represents a compatible land use that will not interfere with the airport or its operation, thereby protecting the interests of civil aviation.

Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-04-11
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This document announces the reopening of the comment period for the above-referenced NPRM, which proposed the adoption of a new airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to all The Boeing Company Model MD-90-30 airplanes and that would supersede AD 97-11-07 and AD 99-18-23. The NPRM proposed to continue to require revising the Airworthiness Limitations Section (ALS) of the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness to incorporate certain compliance times for principal structural elements (PSE) inspections and replacement times for safe-life limited parts. The NPRM also proposed to require revising the maintenance or inspection program to incorporate a new PSE requirement for the rear spar caps of the horizontal stabilizer and its associated inspections. This reopening of the comment period is necessary to ensure that all interested persons have ample opportunity to submit any written relevant data, views, or arguments regarding the proposed requirements of the NPRM.
