The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes to rule and invites public comment on the application for a release of approximately .3885 acre of airport property at Taylor Airport, Taylor, Arizona, from all conditions contained in the Grant Agreement Assurances since the land is not needed for airport purposes.

Proposed Modification of Class D and Class E Airspace; Pasco, WA
Document Number: 2014-15692
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-07-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to modify the Class D and Class E airspace at Tri-Cities Airport, Pasco, WA. Controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate the new Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures at the airport. This action, initiated by the biennial review of the Pasco WA, airspace area, would enhance the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport.
Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce plc Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2014-15620
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-07-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Rolls-Royce plc (RR) RB211 Trent 768-60, 772-60, and 772B-60 turbofan engines. This proposed AD was prompted by fuel leaks caused by damage to the fan case low-pressure (LP) fuel tube. This proposed AD would require inspection of the fan case LP fuel tubes and associated clips and the fuel oil heat exchanger (FOHE) mounts and associated hardware. We are proposing this AD to prevent failure of the fan case LP fuel tube, which could lead to an in-flight shutdown of one or more engines due to fuel starvation, loss of thrust control, and damage to the airplane.
