Notice of Opportunity for Public Comment on a Request To Release Surplus Property at the Vidalia Regional Airport, Vidalia, Georgia
Document Number: 2019-11899
Type: Notice
Date: 2019-06-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
FAA is considering a request from the City of Vidalia to waive the requirement that 6.11 acres of surplus property located at the Vidalia Regional Airport be used for aeronautical purposes. Currently, the ownership of the property provides for the protection of FAR Part 77 surfaces and compatible land use which would continue to be protected with deed restrictions required in the transfer of land ownership. The land is owned and operated by the airport, but not currently in use or planned for aeronautical use.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-11830
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-06-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2008-24-14, which applied to all Bombardier, Inc., Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes. AD 2008-24-14 required revising the instructions for continued airworthiness to incorporate certain airworthiness limitations for the main landing gear (MLG) trunnion fitting assembly. This AD requires revising the maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate certain airworthiness limitations (AWLs). This AD also requires reworking the trunnion fitting in order to meet new structural safe-life limits. This AD was prompted by reports of cracks on the MLG trunnion fitting during fatigue testing; the introduction of new AWL tasks with revised inspection, modification, and safe-life requirements; and a determination that the trunnion fitting lower flange and both forward and aft bore holes are also subject to fatigue cracking. 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: Application for Employment With the Federal Aviation Administration; Correction
Document Number: 2019-11820
Type: Notice
Date: 2019-06-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This notice is a Correction to the notice published on May 14, 2019, due to invalid Docket number, updated comment deadline, as well as clarification for Respondents and their Frequency. 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 an automated application process for employment with the Federal Aviation Administration. Applicants access an online form that is presented with requests for certain information. The information collected is necessary to determine basic eligibility for employment and potential eligibility for Veteran's Preference, Veteran's Readjustment Act, and People with Disability appointments. In addition, there are specific occupation questions that assist the FAA Office of Human Resource Management (AHR) in determining candidates' qualifications in order that the best-qualified candidates are hired for the many FAA occupations.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-11790
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-06-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 737-100, -200, -200C, -300, -400, and -500 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of cracks caused by corrosion of the edge of the bore of the spot face and corrosion of the lug bore of certain side-strut support fitting lugs. This AD requires repetitive detailed inspections of the left and right side-strut support fitting lugs with bushings installed for any corrosion, any crack, or any severed lug; repetitive detailed and high frequency eddy current (HFEC) inspections of the left and right side-strut support fitting lugs with bushings removed for any corrosion or any crack; and applicable on-condition actions. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-11785
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-06-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2018-26- 07, which applies to all Airbus SAS Model A350-941 and -1041 airplanes. AD 2018-26-07 requires repetitive greasing of the thrust reverser actuators (TRAs), dispatch restrictions, and maintenance procedure revisions. Since we issued AD 2018-26-07, we are now proposing to add a requirement to replace the TRAs, which AD 2018-26-07 specified was not required at the time to provide the opportunity for the public to comment on the merits of that action. This proposed AD would require actions specified in an European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which will be incorporated by reference. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Minersville, PA
Document Number: 2019-11778
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-06-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to establish Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Primrose Heliport, Minersville, PA, to accommodate new area navigation (RNAV) global positioning system (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures serving this heliport. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at this heliport.
Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Marion, OH
Document Number: 2019-11776
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-06-06
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Marion Municipal Airport, Marion, OH. The FAA is proposing this action as the result of an airspace review caused by the decommissioning of the Marion localizer/ distance measuring equipment (LOC/DME) navigation aid, which provided navigation information for the instrument procedures at this airport. Airspace redesign is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at this airport.
