Federal Aviation Administration April 13, 2017 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-07442
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-04-13
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is correcting an airworthiness directive (AD) that published in the Federal Register. That AD applies to all Airbus Model A330-243, -243F, -341, -342, and -343 airplanes. As published, the AD number specified in the preamble and regulatory text is incorrect. This document corrects that error. In all other respects, the original document remains the same.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-07441
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-04-13
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2014-26- 10, for all Airbus Model A318, A319, A320, and A321 series airplanes. AD 2014-26-10 currently requires revising the maintenance or inspection program to incorporate maintenance requirements and airworthiness limitations. Since we issued AD 2014-26-10, we have determined that more restrictive maintenance instructions and airworthiness limitations are necessary. This proposed AD would require revising the maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new or revised airworthiness limitation requirements. This proposed AD also removes airplanes from the applicability. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-07440
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-04-13
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 757-200, -200PF, and -200CB series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of slats disbonding on airplanes on which the terminating actions of AD 2005-07-08 had been performed. We have also received reports of slats disbonding on airplanes outside of the applicability of AD 90-23-06, AD 91-22-51, and AD 2005-07-08. This proposed AD would require determining the type of trailing edge slat wedges of the leading edge slats, repetitive inspections for disbonding on certain trailing edge slat wedges, and corrective actions, if necessary. This proposed AD would also provide an optional terminating action for the repetitive inspections. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Medford, OR
Document Number: 2017-07380
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-04-13
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to modify Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D or E surface area, modify Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, and remove Class E airspace upward from 1,200 feet above the surface at Rogue Valley International-Medford Airport, Medford, OR. This action is necessary due to the proposed decommissioning of the PUMIE locator outer marker and removal of the VHF Omnidirectional Range/Tactical Air Navigation (VORTAC) from the airspace description as the FAA transitions from ground-based navigation aids to satellite-based navigation. Also, this action would update the airport's geographic coordinates for Class D and E airspace areas to reflect the FAA's current aeronautical database.
Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Pauls Valley, OK
Document Number: 2017-07378
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-04-13
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to modify Class E airspace extending up to 700 feet above the surface at Pauls Valley Municipal Airport, Pauls Valley, OK. Airspace reconfiguration is necessary due to the decommissioning of the Pauls Valley non-directional radio beacon (NDB), and cancellation of the NDB approach. This proposed action would enhance the safety and management of standard instrument approach procedures for instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the airport.
