Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-01-29
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend the Class E airspace, designated as a surface area, at the Bryce Canyon Airport, Bryce Canyon, UT. The proposal would extend the surface area by adding a small amount of airspace to the northeast of the airport. Also, this action proposes to amend the Class E airspace by adding an area, designated as an extension to a surface area, to the southwest of the airport. Additionally, this action proposes to amend the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface by reducing the area to the east and southeast of the airport. Further, the actions proposes to remove Class E airspace extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface. This airspace is wholly contained within Class E en route airspace and duplication is not necessary. Lastly, this action proposes an administrative update to the surface airspace's legal descriptions. These changes are necessary to accommodate airspace redesign for the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport.
Airworthiness Directives; Superior Air Parts, Inc. (SAP) Engines and Lycoming Engines Reciprocating Engines With a Certain SAP Crankshaft Assembly
Document Number: 2020-01414
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-01-29
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all SAP Model IO-360-series and O-360-series reciprocating engines and certain Lycoming Engines (Lycoming) Model AEIO-360-, IO-360-, and O-360-series reciprocating engines with a certain SAP crankshaft assembly installed. This SAP crankshaft assembly is installed as original equipment on the affected SAP engines and as a replacement part under parts manufacturer approval (PMA) on the affected Lycoming engines. This proposed AD was prompted by three crankshaft assembly failures that resulted in the loss of engine power and immediate or emergency landings. This proposed AD would require the removal from service of all affected crankshaft assemblies. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
