Notice of Opportunity for Public Comment on a Land Use Change From Aeronautical to Non-Aeronautical Use for 4.2 Acres of Airport Land for Solar Farm Use at Newport Airport, Middletown, RI
Document Number: 2017-19782
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-09-18
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
Notice is being given that the FAA is considering a request from the Rhode Island Airport Corporation (RIAC), to change the current land use from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use of a 4.2-acre parcel of land. The parcel is located in the western quadrant of the airport. The Airport Layout Plan was updated with a Pen and Ink Change to designate the parcel for non-aeronautical use. The annual savings in electrical costs created by the solar farm will offset the fair market value of the land lease over the lease period.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes
Document Number: 2017-19658
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-09-18
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model BD-700-1A10 and BD-700-1A11 airplanes. This AD was prompted by a determination that a certain task in the aircraft maintenance manual (AMM) will not accomplish the intent of a candidate certification maintenance requirement (CCMR) for detecting dormant failures of the pitch feel (PF) and rudder travel limiter actuator (RTLA) back-up modules. This AD requires doing an operational test of the flight control unit (FCU) back-up modules, and repair if necessary. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
