Federal Aviation Administration January 24, 2020 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; Lockheed Martin Corporation/Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-01145
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-01-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Lockheed Martin Corporation/Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company Model 382, 382B, 382E, 382F, and 382G airplanes, type certificated in any category; and Model C-130A, C-130B, C-130BL, C-130E, C-130H, C-130H-30, C-130J, C-130J-30, EC-130Q, HC-130H, KC-130H, NC-130B, NC-130, and WC- 130H airplanes, type certificated in the restricted or amateur category. This AD was prompted by a report indicating that two elevator booster assemblies experienced significant hydraulic fluid leaks, caused by fatigue cracks in the actuator cylinder. This AD requires an inspection to determine the part number of the elevator booster actuator, repetitive ultrasonic inspections of the actuator to detect cracking, and replacement of cracked elevator booster assemblies. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-01044
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-01-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus SAS Model A350-941 and -1041 airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of sealant bead damage caused by rotation of the attachment fitting bearing assembly of a trimmable horizontal stabilizer (THS). This AD requires repetitive detailed inspections, and applicable corrective action(s) if necessary, as specified in a European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which is incorporated by reference. In addition, as specified in the EASA AD, this AD provides an optional modification that would terminate the inspections. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-01043
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-01-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus SAS Model A300 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report that indicated that bleed and air conditioning systems were contaminated by hydraulic fluid, and by an investigation that revealed that hydraulic fluid contaminations caused the failure of check valves installed on the hydraulic reservoir air pressurization system. This AD requires repetitive functional tests of the hydraulic reservoir air pressurization lines, and repair or replacement if necessary, as specified in a European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which is incorporated by reference. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Proposed Amendment, Establishment, and Revocation of Multiple Air Traffic Service (ATS) Routes in the Vicinity of Waukon, IA
Document Number: 2020-00997
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-01-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend six VHF Omnidirectional Range (VOR) Federal airways, V-2, V-77, V-138, V-218, V-246 and V-398; establish two low altitude Area Navigation (RNAV) routes, T-348 and T- 389; and remove one VOR Federal airway, V-411, in the vicinity of Waukon, IA. The Air Traffic Service (ATS) route modifications are necessary due to the planned decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Waukon, IA, VOR/Distance Measuring Equipment (VOR/DME) navigation aid (NAVAID). The NAVAIDs provide navigation guidance for portions of the affected air traffic service (ATS) routes. The VOR is being decommissioned as part of the FAA's VOR Minimum Operational Network (MON) program.
Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Tahlequah, OK
Document Number: 2020-00996
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-01-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Tahlequah Municipal Airport in Tahlequah, OK. The FAA is proposing this action as the result of an airspace review caused by the decommissioning of the Tahlequah non- directional radio beacon (NDB). The geographic coordinates for the airport in the associated airspace would 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 this airport.
