Public Notice for Intent To Release Airport Property
The FAA proposes to rule and invites public comment on the release of airport property at the Kenai Municipal Airport, Kenai, Alaska.
Proposed Amendment of the Class D and Class E Airspace; Meridian, MS
This action proposes to amend the Class D airspace at Joe Williams NOLF, Meridian, MS; Key Field, Meridian, MS; and NAS Meridian/ McCain Field, Meridian, MS; the Class E airspace area designated as an extension to Class D airspace at Key Field; and the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Key Field, Joe Williams NOLF, and NAS Meridian/McCain Field. The FAA is proposing this action as the result of the decommissioning of the Kewanee VHF omnidirectional range (VOR) navigation aid, which provided navigation information for the instrument procedures at these airports, as part of the VOR Minimum Operational Network (MON) Program. The names and geographic coordinates of NAS Meridian/McCain Field and Joe Williams NOLF, and the geographic coordinates of Key Field 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.
Airworthiness Directives; Leonardo S.p.A. Helicopters
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Leonardo S.p.A. (Leonardo) Model AW169 helicopters. This AD requires replacing the seals, filler wedges, and handles of each emergency exit window. This AD was prompted by a report that a high level of pushing force was required to jettison some windows. The actions of this AD are intended to address an unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Dassault Aviation Airplanes
The FAA proposes to supersede Airworthiness Directives (ADs) 2016-01-16, 2017-19-03, and 2018-19-05, which apply to Dassault Aviation Model MYSTERE-FALCON 900 airplanes. Those ADs require revising the maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new or more restrictive maintenance requirements and/or airworthiness limitations. Since AD 2018-19-05 was issued, the FAA has determined that new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations are necessary. This proposed AD would require revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Helicopters
The FAA is superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2018-18-12 for Airbus Helicopters (Airbus) Model AS350B, AS350B1, AS350B2, AS350B3, and AS350BA helicopters with a certain part-numbered Pall Aerospace Corporation Inlet Barrier Filter (IBF) element installed. AD 2018-18-12 required revising the Rotorcraft Flight Manual Supplement (RFMS) for your helicopter to prohibit operating a helicopter with an IBF element in wet weather and drying or replacing the IBF element if wet. This AD retains the requirements of AD 2018-18-12 but no longer allows reinstallation of a filter after it has been removed. This AD also expands the applicability, provides an optional terminating action for the RFMS revision for your helicopter, and prohibits installing the affected IBFs on any helicopter. This AD was prompted by further review of the unsafe condition and the determination that additional part- numbered IBF elements are affected by the unsafe condition. The actions of this AD are intended to address an unsafe condition on these products.
