This action amends VHF Omnidirectional Range (VOR) Federal airways V-125, V-178, V-313, and V-429 in the vicinity of Cape Girardeau, MO. The modifications are necessary due to the planned decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Cape Girardeau, MO, VOR/ Distance Measuring Equipment (VOR/DME) navigation aid (NAVAID), which provides navigation guidance for portions of the affected airways. The Cape Girardeau VOR is being decommissioned as part of the FAA's VOR Minimum Operational Network (MON) program.
Airworthiness Directives; Polskie Zaklady Lotnicze Sp. z o.o. Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-10015
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-05-14
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Polskie Zaklady Lotnicze Sp. z o.o. Model PZL M28 05 airplanes. This proposed AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product.

The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

This proposed AD was prompted by a report of contamination from galvanic corrosion between the fuel control unit (FCU) aluminum body and the steel union fitting causing the loss of engine control, resulting in an engine over-speed condition and subsequent in-flight shutdown (IFSD). This proposed AD would require replacing the FCU with a part eligible for installation. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
