Amendment of Class E Airspace and Establishment of Class E Airspace Extension; Battle Mountain, NV
This action amends the Class E surface area, Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface and creates Class E airspace as an extension to the Class E surface area at Battle Mountain Airport, Battle Mountain, NV. After establishment of a new area navigation (RNAV) procedure and review of the airspace, the FAA found it necessary to amend the existing airspace and establish new controlled airspace for the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at this airport. This action also removes a reference to the Battle Mountain VORTAC from the legal description for the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces its decision to adopt the United States Air Force (USAF) Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base Personnel Recovery Training Program for the establishment of a Temporary Military Operations Area (TMOA) in Playas, New Mexico. This notice announces that, based on its independent review and evaluation of the EA and supporting documents, the FAA is adopting the EA and issuing a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI)/Record of Decision (ROD) for the establishment of the Playas TMOA.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 757 airplanes and Model 767-200, -300, and - 300F series airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of excessively high flight deck or cabin temperatures. This AD requires revising certificate limitations and operating procedures of the existing airplane flight manual (AFM), to provide the flightcrew with procedures for hot flight deck or cabin temperatures to follow under certain conditions. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Amendment of Jet Route J-37 in the Vicinity of Atlanta, GA
This action amends Jet Route J-37 in the vicinity of Atlanta, GA, by removing the route segment between the Montgomery, AL, VHF Omnidirectional Range (VOR)/Tactical Air Navigation (VORTAC) and the Lynchburg, VA, VOR/Distance Measuring Equipment (VOR/DME) navigation aids. The route segment was recently removed from the jet route effective January 30, 2020, and then inadvertently added back to the jet route the following chart cycle, effective March 26, 2020. Subsequent to the publication of the rule that added the route segment back to J-37, the FAA identified the error and is taking this action to correct it by removing the route segment as it was in January 2020 in support of the Northeast Corridor Atlantic Coast Route Project.
