Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; Clearance of Renewed Approval of Information Collection: Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) Out Performance Requirements To Support Air Traffic Control (ATC) Service
Document Number: 2020-12849
Type: Notice
Date: 2020-06-15
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the FAA invites public comments about our intention to request the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to renew a previously approved information collection. On May 28, 2010, the FAA published the final rule, entitled Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) Equipage Mandate To Support Air Traffic Control Service. 75 FR 30160. As of January 2, 2020, when operating in the airspace designated in 14 CFR 91.225(a), (b) and (d), operators must be equipped with ADS-B Out avionics that meet the performance requirements of 14 CFR 91.227. ADS-B supports the aircraft surveillance needs of the FAA by requiring avionics equipment that meet the performance requirements of 14 CFR 91.227 and continuously transmit aircraft information to be received by the FAA, via automation, for use in providing air traffic surveillance services. ADS-B is transforming all segments of aviation (e.g., real- time precision shared situational awareness, and advanced applications for pilots and controllers alike).
Airworthiness Directives; Hamilton Sundstrand Corporation Propellers
Document Number: 2020-12821
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-06-15
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Hamilton Sundstrand Corporation (Hamilton Sundstrand) 54H60 model propellers. This AD was prompted by the failure of a propeller blade that resulted in the loss of the airplane. This AD requires initial and repetitive eddy current inspections (ECIs) of the affected propeller blades and replacement of the propeller blades that fail the inspection. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-12812
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-06-15
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation (Gulfstream) Model G-IV airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of un-commanded nose wheel steering turns. This AD requires replacing the nose wheel steering servo valve manifold, incorporating revised operating procedures into the airplane flight manual (AFM), doing a records inspection for any incidents of un-commanded nose wheel steering turns, and reporting the results to the FAA. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Proposed Establishment of Area Navigation (RNAV) Routes T-301 and T-305; Northcentral United States
Document Number: 2020-12778
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-06-15
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to establish area navigation (RNAV) routes T-301 and T-305 in the northcentral United States. The proposed new RNAV routes would expand the availability of RNAV routing in support of transitioning the National Airspace System (NAS) from ground-based to satellite-based navigation. Additionally, a portion of the new RNAV routes would provide enroute structure where VHF Omnidirectional Range (VOR) Federal airway segments were removed due to the Cape Girardeau, MO, VOR being decommissioned in support of the FAA's VOR Minimum Operational Network (MON) program.
Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Clinton, MO
Document Number: 2020-12774
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-06-15
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Clinton Regional Airport, Clinton, MO. The FAA is proposing this action as the result of an airspace review due to the decommissioning of the Golden Valley non- directional beacon (NDB) which provided navigation information to the instrument procedures at this airport. The name and geographic coordinates of the airport would also be updated to coincide with the FAA's aeronautic database.
