Notice of Release of Land Affecting Federal Grant Assurance Obligations at Hayward Executive Airport, Hayward, Alameda County, California
Document Number: 2020-03663
Type: Notice
Date: 2020-02-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is considering a proposal and invites public comment to change a portion of the airport from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use at Hayward Executive Airport (HWD), Hayward, Alameda County, California. The proposal consists of two parcels, containing a total of 3.18 acres of airport land, located southwest of Taxiway Z, between Taxiways Z and C. These parcels were originally acquired from the federal government as surplus land, via quitclaim deed issued by the War Assets Administration on April 16, 1947. Land adjacent to the parcels was previously released for non-aeronautical revenue generation, for use as a regional fire training facility. The additional two parcels will be leased for non-aeronautical revenue generation, and incorporated into the regional fire training facility. The use of the land for a fire training facility represents a compatible land use that will not interfere with the airport or its operation, thereby protecting the interests of civil aviation. The airport will be compensated for the fair market value of the land.
Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-03548
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-02-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model BD-700-1A10 and BD-700-1A11 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report that the anti- fretting coating on the piston rods of certain ram air turbine (RAT) deployment actuators may have been incorrectly applied. This proposed AD would require a review of airplane maintenance records or an inspection of the RAT deployment actuator to determine the serial number and, depending on the findings, replacement with an upgraded RAT deployment actuator. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; Clearance of [a Renewed] Approval of Information Collection: Pilots Convicted of Alcohol or Drug-Related Motor Vehicle Offenses Subject to State Motor Vehicle Administrative Procedure
Document Number: 2020-03528
Type: Notice
Date: 2020-02-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FAA invites public comments about our intention to request the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to renew an information collection. The collection involves receiving and maintaining correspondence required to be sent to the FAA from pilots who have been involved in a drug or alcohol related motor vehicle action. The information to be collected will be used to and/or is necessary because the FAA is concerned about those airmen abusing or dependent on drugs or alcohol in regard to the safety of the National Airspace System.
Airworthiness Directives; De Havilland Aircraft of Canada Limited (Type Certificate Previously Held by Bombardier, Inc.) Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-03353
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-02-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain De Havilland Aircraft of Canada Limited Model DHC-8-400 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report that certain elevator power control unit (PCU) arm fittings have nonconforming fillet radii. This proposed AD would require an inspection for affected elevator PCU assemblies, inspections of affected elevator PCU arm fittings for nonconforming fillet radii and cracks, replacement if necessary, and re-identification of the affected elevator PCU assemblies. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Standard Instrument Approach Procedures, and Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures; Miscellaneous Amendments

Date: 2020-02-24
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This rule amends, suspends, or removes Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) and associated Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures for operations at certain airports. These regulatory actions are needed because of the adoption of new or revised criteria, or because of changes occurring in the National Airspace System, such as the commissioning of new navigational facilities, adding new obstacles, or changing air traffic requirements. These changes are designed to provide for the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace and to promote safe flight operations under instrument flight rules at the affected airports.
