IFR Altitudes; Miscellaneous Amendments
This amendment adopts miscellaneous amendments to the required IFR (instrument flight rules) altitudes and changeover points for certain Federal airways, jet routes, or direct routes for which a minimum or maximum en route authorized IFR altitude is prescribed. This regulatory action is needed because of changes occurring in the National Airspace System. These changes are designed to provide for the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace under instrument conditions in the affected areas.
Petition for Exemption; Summary of Petition Received: Wing Aviation, LLC; Correction
On September 5, 2019, the FAA published a notice in the Federal Register containing a summary of a petition seeking relief from specified requirements of Federal Aviation Regulations. 84 FR 46774. This notice corrects the sections of the Code of Federal Regulations from which the petitioner seeks relief.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
The FAA is correcting an airworthiness directive (AD) that published in the Federal Register. That AD applies to certain The Boeing Company Model 737-100, 737-200, 737-200C, 737-300, 737-400, and 737-500 series airplanes. As published, a paragraph reference specified in the regulatory text is incorrect. This document corrects that error. In all other respects, the original document remains the same.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
The FAA is superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2019-06- 09, which applied to certain Airbus SAS Model A350-941 airplanes. AD 2019-06-09 required repetitive tightness checks of the baby bassinet inserts installed on stowages and partitions and, depending on findings, accomplishment of applicable corrective actions, as specified in a European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which was incorporated by reference. This new AD continues to require repetitive tightness checks of the baby bassinet inserts installed on stowages and partitions and, depending on findings, accomplishment of applicable corrective actions, and also requires modification of the baby bassinet inserts, which constitutes terminating action for the repetitive tightness checks; as specified in an EASA AD, which is incorporated by reference. This AD was prompted by reports that baby bassinet inserts installed on airplane stowages and partitions were found loose because a self-securing fixation device (Loctite) had not been applied. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440); CL-600-2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701 & 702); CL-600-2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705); CL-600-2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900); and CL-600-2E25 (Regional Jet Series 1000) airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of incorrect deployment of forward and aft flight attendant oxygen masks. This AD requires repacking the flight attendant and lavatory oxygen box assemblies as applicable, replacing the placards, and re-identifying the assemblies. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Proposed Revocation of Class E Airspace; Marshalltown, IA: Withdrawal
The FAA is withdrawing the NPRM published in the Federal Register on August 14, 2019, to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Marshalltown Municipal Airport, Marshalltown, IA. Upon further consideration, the FAA has determined that an operational requirement for the airspace still exists; therefore, withdrawal of the proposed rule is warranted
Amendment of the Class D Airspace; New Iberia, LA
This action amends Class D airspace at Acadiana Regional Airport, New Iberia, LA. This action is the result of the decommissioning of the ACADI Non-directional radio beacon, (NDB). This action is for the safety and management of standard instrument approach procedures for instrument flight rules (IFR), operations at this airport.
Proposed Amendment and Removal of Air Traffic Service (ATS) Routes; Southeastern United States
This action proposes to amend 25 jet routes, remove 7 jet routes, and remove 1 high altitude area navigation (RNAV) route in the southeastern United States. This action is in support of the Northeast Corridor Atlantic Route Project to improve the efficiency of the National Airspace System (NAS) and reduce dependency on ground-based navigational systems.
Airworthiness Directives; Saab AB, Saab Aeronautics (Formerly Known as Saab AB, Saab Aerosystems) Airplanes
The FAA proposes to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2019-03-19, which applies to all Saab AB, Saab Aeronautics Model SAAB 2000 airplanes. AD 2019-03-19 requires a functional check of certain fuel probes, and replacement with a serviceable part if necessary. Since the FAA issued AD 2019-03-19, the agency has determined the definition of a ``serviceable part'' must be revised. This proposed AD would retain a functional check of certain fuel probes, and replacement with a serviceable part if necessary. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
