Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Medford, WI and Waupaca, WI
Document Number: 2017-11678
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-06-07
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to modify Class E airspace extending up to 700 feet above the surface at Taylor County Airport, Medford, WI and Waupaca Municipal Airport, Waupaca, WI, to accommodate new standard instrument approach procedures (SIAPS) for instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at these airports. This action is necessary due to the decommissioning of the Medford and Waupaca non directional radio beacons (NDB), and cancellation of NDB approaches. This action would enhance the safety and management of IFR operations at these airports.
Amendment of VOR Federal Airways; Eastern United States

Amendment of Class E Airspace; Moses Lake, WA; Olympia, WA
Document Number: 2017-11582
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-06-07
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action withdraws the final rule, technical amendment published in the Federal Register on April 25, 2017. In that action, the FAA amended Class E Airspace at Grant County International Airport, Moses Lake, WA, and Olympia Regional Airport, Olympia, WA. The FAA has determined that withdrawal of the final rule, technical amendment is warranted since a change in the geographic coordinates of the airports will affect the charted boundaries of the airspace, and therefore should be considered under the full rulemaking process.

Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace, Alexander City, AL
Document Number: 2017-11395
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-06-07
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend Class E airspace at Alexander City, AL, due to the decommissioning of the Alexander City non- directional beacon (NDB), which requires airspace reconfiguration at Thomas C Russell Field Airport.

Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-06-07
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Hot Springs, VA, by adding controlled airspace for Bath Community Hospital Heliport to the Ingalls Field Airport airspace designation. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at the heliport. This action also would update the geographic coordinates of Ingalls Field Airport in the associated Class E airspace.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-11001
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-06-07
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-1A11 (CL-600), CL-600-2A12 (CL- 601 Variant), and CL-600-2B16 (CL-601-3A, CL-601-3R, and CL-604 Variants) airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a new life limitation that has been introduced for the side brace fitting shaft and side brace-to-airplane fitting pin of the main landing gear (MLG). This proposed AD would require revising the maintenance or inspection program. This proposed AD would also require an inspection to identify the serial number, to serialize, and to record the accumulated life of the side brace fitting shaft of the MLG. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
