Amendment of Class E Airspace; Redding, CA
Document Number: 2020-00106
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-01-10
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action modifies Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D or Class E surface area, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Redding Municipal Airport, Redding CA. This action also removes Class E airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface; this airspace is wholly contained within the Rogue Valley en route airspace and duplication is not necessary. Additionally, this action updates the geographic coordinates of the airport to match the FAA's database. Lastly, this action removes references to the Redding VOR/DME and Lassen NDB from the airspace legal description, as well as the airspace extensions associated with the navigational aids.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-00059
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-01-10
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 787-8 and 787-9 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports that the cabin air compressor (CAC) outlet check valve failed due to fatigue of the aluminum flappers, and exposed the Y-duct to temperatures above its design limit. This proposed AD would require installing new inboard and outboard CAC outlet check valves on the left-side and right-side cabin air conditioning and temperature control system (CACTCS) packs. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; General Electric Company Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2020-00020
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-01-10
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all General Electric Company (GE) CF34-8C1, CF34-8C5, CF34-8C5A1, CF34-8C5B1, CF34-8C5A2, CF34-8C5A3, CF34-8E2, CF34-8E2A1, CF34-8E5, CF34-8E5A1, CF34-8E5A2, CF34-8E6, and CF34-8E6A1 turbofan engine models with a certain outer shell combustion liner (combustion outer liner shell) installed. This proposed AD was prompted by two in-flight engine shutdowns (IFSDs) that occurred as a result of failures of the combustion outer liner shell. This proposed AD would require a borescope inspection (BSI) or visual inspection of the combustion outer liner shell and, depending on the results of the inspection, possible replacement of the combustion outer liner shell. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Amendment of the Class E Airspace; Coudersport, PA; and Revocation of Class E Airspace; Galeton, PA
Document Number: 2019-28507
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-01-10
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action amends the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Charles Cole Memorial Hospital Heliport, Coudersport, PA, and revokes the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Cherry Springs Airport, Galeton, PA. This action is due to an airspace review caused by the closure of the Cherry Spring Airport. The geographic coordinates of Charles Cole Memorial Hospital Heliport 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 Charles Cole Memorial Hospital Heliport.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2019-28469
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-01-10
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 737-900ER series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of significant corrosion of electrical connectors located in the main landing gear (MLG) wheel well. This proposed AD would require repetitive records checks to determine exposure to certain deicing fluids or repetitive inspections for corrosion of the electrical connectors, and corrective actions if necessary. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
