Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-08828
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-05-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 707 airplanes and Model 720 and 720B series airplanes. This AD was prompted by a determination that undetected web fatigue cracking caused by oil canning may exist in the aft pressure bulkhead web. This AD requires repetitive detailed inspections for any oil canning or cracking of the aft pressure bulkhead web, and corrective actions if necessary. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Proposed Amendment of Class D and E Airspace: Battle Creek, MI
Document Number: 2017-08856
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-05-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to modify Class D airspace, and Class E airspace designated as an extension at W.K. Kellogg Airport (formerly W.K. Kellogg Field), Battle Creek, MI. Airspace reconfiguration is necessary due to the decommissioning of the Battle Creek VHF Omnidirectional Range Collocated Tactical Air Navigation System (VORTAC), and cancellation of the VOR approaches. Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface also would be amended due to the redesign of the Instrument Landing System (ILS) approach, thereby removing reference to the BATOL navigation aid and Battle Creek ILS localizer. This action would also update the geographic coordinates of the airport, as well as make an editorial change replacing Airport/ Facility Directory with the term Chart Supplement in the associated Class D and E airspace areas.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-08831
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-05-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 737-200, -200C, -300, -400, and -500 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of skin doublers that disbonded from their skin panels. This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections of fuselage skin panels, and applicable on-condition actions. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-08830
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-05-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model DHC-8-102, -103, -106, -201, -202, -301, -311, and -315 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of undamped main landing gear (MLG) extension in-service. This proposed AD would require replacement of the MLG retraction actuator rod-ends on both MLG assemblies. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Supplemental Type Certificates SA401SW, SE325SW, SE419SW (Original Product Type Certificate Numbers A1CE, 2A13, 1A15, 1A10, 2A3, 273, E5CE, 3E1, E246, and E267)
Document Number: 2017-08753
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-05-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This Notice requests the current holder(s)or their heirsof STC's SA401SW, Full flow oil filter; SE325SW, Full flow oil filter; SE419SW, Full flow oil filter; come forward and identify themselves before the FAA declares these STC's abandoned.
Public Notice for Waiver of Aeronautical Land-Use Assurance
Document Number: 2017-08752
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-05-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is considering a proposal to change 4.53 acres of airport land from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use and to authorize the lease of airport property located at Flying Cloud Airport, Minneapolis, Minnesota. The aforementioned land is not needed for aeronautical use. The property is located northeast of the airport's Gate H and south of Pioneer Trail. This parcel has been vacant since the 1950's with drainage ditches on three sides. The proposed use of the property is to lease the parcel for development of commercial/retail space.
Airport Privatization Pilot Program: Preliminary Application for St. Louis Lambert International Airport, St. Louis, MO
Document Number: 2017-08751
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-05-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA has completed its review of the St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL) preliminary application for participation in the Airport Privatization Pilot Program. The preliminary application is accepted for review, with a filing date of March 22, 2017. The City of St. Louis, the airport sponsor, may proceed with the necessary steps to select a private operator, negotiate an agreement and submit a final application to the FAA for exemption under the pilot program.
Revocation of Class E Airspace and Establishment of Class E Airspace; Ruston, LA
Document Number: 2017-08749
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-05-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action removes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Ruston Municipal Airport, Ruston, LA, as the airport has closed and controlled airspace is no longer required, and establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at the new Ruston Regional Airport, Ruston, LA. This final rule is necessary to ensure the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the new airport.
Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace, Hawthorne, NV
Document Number: 2017-08748
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-05-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to establish Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Hawthorne Industrial Airport, Hawthorne, NV, to support the development of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations under standard instrument approach and departure procedures at the airport, for the safety of aircraft and management of airspace within the National Airspace System.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-08708
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-05-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 737-300, -400, and -500 series airplanes. This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections for cracking in the skin lap splice at the lower fastener row, and repair if necessary. This AD was prompted by an evaluation by the design approval holder (DAH) indicating that the lower skin at the skin lap splice lower fastener row is subject to widespread fatigue damage (WFD). We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
