Federal Aviation Administration September 24, 2015 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Revocation of Jet Route J-513; North Central United States
Document Number: 2015-24101
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-09-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action removes jet route J-513 in the north central United States. The FAA is taking this action to reflect and accommodate route changes made in Canadian airspace as part of Canada's Windsor- Toronto-Montreal (WTM) airspace redesign project.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes
Document Number: 2015-24020
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2015-09-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2014-20- 01, for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-2B16 (CL-601-3A, CL-601- 3R, and CL-604 Variants) airplanes. AD 2014-20-01 currently requires repetitive inspections for any fuel leak in the right-hand landing lights compartment, and related investigative and corrective actions if necessary. AD 2014-20-01 also provides for an optional replacement of the connector of the fuel boost pump canister of the auxiliary power unit (APU), which terminates the repetitive inspections. Since we issued AD 2014-20-01, we have determined that a terminating action for the repetitive inspections is necessary. This proposed AD would retain the repetitive inspections for any fuel leak in the right-hand landing lights compartment and the related investigative and corrective actions, and would require replacing the connector of the fuel boost pump canister of the APU. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct fuel leaks in the right-hand landing lights compartment, which, in combination with the heat generated by the taxi lights and landing lights on the ground reaching the auto-ignition temperature of the fuel, could result in ignition of any fuel or fumes present in the right-hand landing lights compartment.
Amendment of Class C Airspace; Portland International Airport, OR
Document Number: 2015-23997
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-09-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action amends geographic coordinates of Portland International Airport, Portland, OR, under Class C airspace, due to recent surveys of the airport. This action also updates the name and geographic coordinates of satellite airports referenced in the Portland description. This action does not change the boundaries or operating requirements of the airspace.
Amendment of Class C Airspace; Burbank, CA
Document Number: 2015-23994
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-09-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action amends the name and geographic coordinates of the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport at Burbank, CA. The Burbank-Glendale- Pasadena Airport has been renamed Bob Hope Airport and geographic coordinates are updated to reflect recent surveys of the airport.
Amendment of Class E Airspace; Douglas, WY
Document Number: 2015-23993
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-09-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action modifies Class E airspace at Converse County Airport, Douglas, WY, to accommodate new Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) at Converse County Airport, and addresses an inaccuracy identified by FAA Airspace Policy and Support that V-19, which is no longer located in the area, is used in the legal description of the airspace. The geographic coordinates of the airport also are adjusted. The FAA is taking this action to enhance the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport.
Establishment of Class E Airspace, Delta, CO
Document Number: 2015-23992
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-09-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Blake Field Airport, Delta CO, to accommodate new Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures developed for the airport. This action enhances the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport.
Establishment of Class E Airspace; Iron Mountain, MI
Document Number: 2015-23991
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-09-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action establishes Class E airspace at the Iron Mountain VHF Omni-Directional Radio Range/Distance Measuring Equipment (VOR/ DME), Iron Mountain, MI, to facilitate vectoring of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) aircraft under control of Minneapolis Air Route Traffic Control Center (ARTCC). This action enhances the safety and efficiency of aircraft operations within the National Airspace System (NAS). A minor change in the regulatory text is made to align the new Class E airspace with Minneapolis ARTCC's airspace.
Establishment of Class E Airspace; Newberry, MI
Document Number: 2015-23987
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-09-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action establishes Class E airspace at the Newberry VHF Omni-Directional Radio Range/Distance Measuring Equipment (VOR/DME), Newberry, MI, to facilitate vectoring of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) aircraft under control of Minneapolis Air Route Traffic Control Center (ARTCC). This action enhances the safety and efficiency of aircraft operations within the National Airspace System (NAS). A minor change in the regulatory text is made to align the new Class E airspace with Minneapolis ARTCC's airspace.
Airworthiness Directives; Dassault Aviation Airplanes
Document Number: 2015-22803
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2015-09-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Dassault Aviation Model MYSTERE-FALCON 50, MYSTERE-FALCON 900, FALCON 900EX, FALCON 2000, and FALCON 2000EX airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of an in-flight lightning strike to the WHELEN anti-collision light located on the top of the vertical fin tip that caused severe damage and induced the loss of some airplane functions. This proposed AD would require modification of the anti- collision light bonding. We are proposing this AD to prevent loss of electrical power and essential functions, and possible reduced control of the airplane.
