Results 101 - 108 of 108
Standard Instrument Approach Procedures, and Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures; Miscellaneous Amendments
Document Number: 2019-08860
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-05-03
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This rule amends, suspends, or removes Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) and associated Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures for operations at certain airports. These regulatory actions are needed because of the adoption of new or revised criteria, or because of changes occurring in the National Airspace System, such as the commissioning of new navigational facilities, adding new obstacles, or changing air traffic requirements. These changes are designed to provide for the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace and to promote safe flight operations under instrument flight rules at the affected airports.
Special Conditions: Greenpoint Technologies, Inc., Boeing Model 787-8 Airplane; Dynamic Test Requirements for Single-Occupant, Side-Facing Seats With Airbag Devices in Shoulder Belts
Document Number: 2019-08973
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-05-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These special conditions are issued for the Boeing Model 787-8 airplane. This airplane, as modified by Greenpoint Technologies, Inc. (Greenpoint), will have a novel or unusual design feature when compared to the state of technology envisioned in the airworthiness standards for transport category airplanes. This design feature is single- occupant, side-facing seats with airbag devices in shoulder belts, and a floor-level, leg-flail-prevention device to limit the axial rotation of the upper leg. The applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for this design feature. These special conditions contain the additional safety standards that the Administrator considers necessary to establish a level of safety equivalent to that established by the existing airworthiness standards.
Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; Clearance of a Renewed Approval of Information Collection: FAA Airport Master Record
Document Number: 2019-08944
Type: Notice
Date: 2019-05-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FAA invites public comments about our intention to request the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to renew an information collection. The collection involves aeronautical information that the FAA uses to carry out agency missions related to aviation flying safety, flight planning, airport engineering and federal grants analysis, aeronautical chart and flight information publications, and the promotion of air commerce as required by statute. The information to be collected will be used for airspace studies conducted under 49 U.S.C. 329(b) and will be published in flight information handbooks and charts for pilot use.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-08916
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-05-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 787-8 and 787-9 airplanes. This AD was prompted by a determination that certain areas in the tire/wheel threat zones could be susceptible to damage, which could result in loss of braking on one main landing gear (MLG) truck, loss of nose wheel steering, and loss of directional control on the ground when below rudder effectiveness speed. This AD requires installing hydraulic tubing, a pressure-operated check valve, and new flight control software. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-08915
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-05-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model BD-100-1A10 airplanes. This AD was prompted by an incident of uncommanded nose wheel steering (NWS) in-service; subsequent investigation revealed that the steering selector valve (SSV) is susceptible to jamming in the open position due to particulate contamination of the hydraulic system. This AD requires modifying the left-hand hydraulic system of the NWS control system and, for certain airplanes, torqueing the fittings on a certain tube assembly. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; Clearance of a Renewed Approval of Information Collection: Suspected Unapproved Parts Report
Document Number: 2019-08871
Type: Notice
Date: 2019-05-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FAA invites public comments about our intention to request the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to renew an information collection. The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on the following collection of information was published on February 19, 2019. The information collected on the FAA Form 8120-11 is reported voluntarily by manufacturers, repair stations, aircraft owner/operators, air carriers, and the general public who wish to report suspected unapproved parts to the FAA for review. The report information is collected and correlated by the FAA, Aviation Safety Hotline Program Office, and used to determine if an unapproved part investigation is warranted.
Notice of Submission Deadline for Schedule Information for John F. Kennedy International Airport, Los Angeles International Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport, and San Francisco International Airport for the Winter 2019/2020 Scheduling Season; Suspension of Level 2 at Chicago O'Hare International Airport
Document Number: 2019-08862
Type: Notice
Date: 2019-05-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
Under this notice, the FAA announces the submission deadline of May 16, 2019, for winter 2019/2020 flight schedules at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR), and San Francisco International Airport (SFO). The deadline coincides with the schedule submission deadline for the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Slot Conference for the winter 2019/2020 scheduling season. The FAA is suspending the Level 2 (runway) designation at Chicago O'Hare International Airport (ORD) for the winter 2019/2020 season; therefore, schedules will not need to be submitted to the FAA for service to/from ORD. This notice also reminds carriers of the upcoming deadline to comply with Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast Out (``ADS-B Out'') equipage requirements and advises carriers of the potential consequences of non-equipage.
Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; Clearance of a Renewed Approval of Information Collection: Certification Procedures for Products and Parts Correction
Document Number: 2019-08849
Type: Notice
Date: 2019-05-01
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA published two notices in the Federal Register inviting public comments about our intention to request the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to renew an information collection. The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on the following collection of information was published on September 26, 2018. The Federal Register Notice with a 30-day comment period soliciting comments on the following collection of information was published on February 13, 2019. Both of these notices added an additional five responses to the original collection request because of adding additional blocks to one of the forms. This was incorrect. The additional blocks were added, but the previous respondents had already used the form using a previous block on the form. Also the new blocks were named incorrectly.
