Federal Aviation Administration May 27, 2014 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Proposed Amendment of Class D Airspace; Wichita, McConnell AFB, KS
Document Number: 2014-12177
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-05-27
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend Class D airspace at Wichita, McConnell AFB, KS. The closure of nearby Derby, Hamilton Field has necessitated the need to amend Class D airspace at McConnell AFB. This action would enhance the safety and management of aircraft operations at the airport.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-12093
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-05-27
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 777-200, -200LR, -300, -300ER, and 777F series airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of two in-service occurrences on Model 737-400 airplanes of total loss of boost pump pressure of the fuel feed system, followed by loss of fuel system suction feed capability on one engine, and in-flight shutdown of the engine. This AD requires revising the maintenance program to incorporate a revision to the Airworthiness Limitations Section of the maintenance planning data (MPD) document. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct failure of the engine fuel suction feed of the fuel system, which, in the event of total loss of the fuel boost pumps, could result in dual engine flameout, inability to restart the engines, and consequent forced landing of the airplane.
Modification of Air Traffic Service (ATS) Routes; North Central United States
Document Number: 2014-11999
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-05-27
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action modifies three Jet Routes (J-45, J-151, and J-233) and a high altitude area navigation (RNAV) route (Q-19). The FAA is taking this action due to a service restriction of the Des Moines, IA (DSM), VHF Omnidirectional Range (VOR)/Tactical Air Navigation (VORTAC) facility that provides navigation guidance for a portion of the ATS routes identified.
Modification of the Philadelphia, PA, Class B Airspace Area
Document Number: 2014-11995
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-05-27
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action amends the description of Area G of the Philadelphia Class B airspace area to correct a design error that resulted in the Class B airspace boundary being published 2.1 nautical miles (NM) larger on the southeast side of the area than intended. There are no other changes to the Philadelphia Class B airspace area.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Helicopters (Type Certificate Previously Held By Eurocopter France) Helicopters
Document Number: 2014-11528
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-05-27
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Helicopters Model AS332L1 and Model EC225LP helicopters. This AD requires relocating the power supply circuit breaker source of one engine's multi-purpose air intake (MPAI). This AD is prompted by a report that power loss to the MPAI could open the engine air intakes, which could result in engine ice ingestion during flight in icing conditions. These actions are intended to prevent ice ingestion by both engines, which could result in complete loss of engine thrust, and possible loss of control of the helicopter.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-09835
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-05-27
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 757-200, -200PF, -200CB, and -300 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of cracking of the forward bulkhead web, web stiffeners, attachment angles, and thermal anti-ice (TAI) spray ring assemblies of the engine air intake cowl. This AD requires replacing the forward bulkhead assembly, TAI spray ring assembly, and attachment fittings of the air intake cowl. We are issuing this AD to prevent the failure of air intake cowl components due to cracking, which could result in the air intake cowl separating from the engine and striking critical airplane control surfaces that could result in a loss of airplane control; severe engine damage and loss of thrust; or large parts striking a person or property on the ground.
