Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These special conditions are issued for the Airbus Model A330- 300 and Model A330-900 series airplanes. These airplanes, as modified by TTF Aerospace, LLC (TTF Aerospace), 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 a lower deck mobile crew rest (LD-MCR) compartment installed in the aft cargo compartment of Model A330–300 and Model A330-900 series airplanes. 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.

Airworthiness Directives; Saab AB, Saab Aeronautics (Formerly Known as Saab AB, Saab Aerosystems) Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-14726
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-07-11
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Saab AB, Saab Aeronautics Model SAAB 2000 airplanes. This AD was prompted by an event where the airplane did not respond to the flightcrew's flight control inputs because the pitch trim switches did not disconnect the autopilot. This AD requires modifying the wiring installation for the autopilot disconnect logic. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

Proposed Amendment of the Class E Airspace; Haleyville, AL, and Hamilton, AL
Document Number: 2019-14633
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-07-11
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 Posey Field Airport, Haleyville, AL, and Marion County-Rankin Fite Airport, Hamilton, AL. The FAA is proposing this action as the result of the decommissioning of the Hamilton VHF omnidirectional range (VOR) navigation aid, which provided navigation information for the instrument procedures at this airport, as part of the VOR Minimum Operational Network (MON) Program. The name and geographic coordinates of Marion County-Rankin Fite Airport would also be updated to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database. Airspace redesign is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at these airports.
