Airworthiness Directives; Technify Motors GmbH Reciprocating Engines
Document Number: 2014-11983
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-05-23
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Technify Motors GmbH (type certificate previously held by Thielert Aircraft Engines GmbH) TAE 125-02-99 and TAE 125-02-114 reciprocating engines. This proposed AD was prompted by in-flight shutdowns on airplanes with TAE 125-02 engines. This proposed AD would require removal of each high-pressure (HP) fuel pump before 300 flight hours (FHs) in service or within 55 FHs after the effective date of the AD, whichever occurs later. We are proposing this AD to prevent failure of the HP fuel pump, which could result in damage to the engine and damage to the airplane.
Notice before Waiver With Respect to Land at Richmond International Airport, Richmond, Virginia
Document Number: 2014-11982
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-05-23
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is publishing notice of proposed release of 1.318 acres of land at the Richmond International Airport, Richmond, Virginia to the Henrico County for construction of the widening of Charles City Road. An additional 0.622 Acres will be permanently utilized by Henrico County within utility, and drainage easements. There are no adverse impacts to the Airport and the land is not needed for airport development as shown on the Airport Layout Plan. Fair Market Value of the land has been established. The Airport will benefit from the improvements to Charles City Road with the more efficient intersection at Airport Drive. The east and west bound through lanes and dedicated right and left turn lanes will provide a more efficient entry to the Airport. These intangible benefits will offset the value of the released property.
Modification and Establishment of Restricted Areas; Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD
Document Number: 2014-11976
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-05-23
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action establishes a new restricted area, designated R- 4001C, within a part of the existing restricted areas R-4001A and R- 4001B, at the U.S. Army's Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland. The purpose of the new area is to contain two moored balloons, called Aerostats, operating continuously at approximately 10,000 feet MSL. This action segregates nonparticipating aircraft from a hazard to navigation in Aberdeen Proving Ground airspace.
Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce plc Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2014-11919
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-05-23
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede airworthiness directive (AD) 2013-12- 01 that applies to all Rolls-Royce plc (RR) model RB211 Trent 768-60, 772-60, and 772B-60 turbofan engines. AD 2013-12-01 requires a one-time ultrasonic inspection (UI) of low-pressure (LP) compressor blades with more than 2,500 flight cycles since new or last inspection. Since we issued AD 2013-12-01, RR determined that repetitive UIs of the LP compressor blades are needed. This proposed AD would require initial and repetitive UIs of the affected LP compressor blades. We are proposing this AD to prevent LP compressor blade airfoil separations, damage to the engine, and damage to the airplane.
Proposed Establishment of Class D Airspace and Amendment of Class E Airspace; Blackstone, VA.
Document Number: 2014-11859
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-05-23
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to establish Class D airspace and amend existing Class E airspace at Blackstone, VA, to accommodate the new air traffic control tower at Allen C. Perkinson Blackstone Army Airfield. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airfield. This action also would update the geographic coordinates of the airfield's existing Class E airspace.
Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Cynthiana, KY
Document Number: 2014-11858
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-05-23
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to establish Class E Airspace at Cynthiana, KY, to accommodate a new Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAP) serving Cynthiana-Harrison County Airport. This action would enhance the safety and airspace management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations within the National Airspace System.
Standard Instrument Approach Procedures, and Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures; Miscellaneous Amendments
Document Number: 2014-11558
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-05-23
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This rule establishes, amends, suspends, or revokes Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) and associated Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures for operations at certain airports. These regulatory actions are needed because of the adoption of new or revised criteria, or because of changes occurring in the National Airspace System, such as the commissioning of new navigational facilities, adding new obstacles, or changing air traffic requirements. These changes are designed to provide safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace and to promote safe flight operations under instrument flight rules at the affected airports.
