Neither publication of this notice nor the inclusion or omission of information in the summary is intended to affect the legal status of the petition or its final disposition.
Airworthiness Directives; CFM International, S.A. Turbofan Engines
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain CFM International, S.A. (CFM) LEAP-1A23, LEAP-1A24, LEAP- 1A24E1, LEAP-1A26, LEAP-1A26CJ, LEAP-1A26E1, LEAP-1A29, LEAP-1A29CJ, LEAP-1A30, LEAP-1A32, LEAP-1A33, LEAP-1A33B2, LEAP-1A35A model turbofan engines. This proposed AD was prompted by an investigation by CFM that showed a subsurface anomaly in a part manufactured using the same material as the LEAP-1A high-pressure turbine (HPT) stage 2 disk. This proposed AD would require an ultrasonic inspection (UI) of the HPT stage 2 disk and replacement of any HPT stage 2 disk that fails the UI with a part eligible for installation. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; PZL Swidnik S.A. Helicopters
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for PZL Swidnik S.A. (PZL) Model PZL W-3A helicopters. This AD requires establishing a life limit for certain horizontal stabilizers and removing from service any affected horizontal stabilizer in accordance with that life limit. This AD was prompted by the discovery of an error in the Airworthiness Limitations for PZL Model PZL W-3A helicopters. The actions of this AD are intended to address an unsafe condition on these products.
Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace; Mountain Home, ID
This action modifies Class D airspace at the Mountain Home Air Force Base Airport. This action also modifies Class E airspace, designated as a surface area. Additionally, this action modifies Class E airspace, extending upward from 700 feet above the surface. This action also modifies Class E airspace, extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface. Further, this action removes Mountain Home Municipal Airport from the legal description of the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface. Lastly, this action implements two administrative amendments to the airspace legal descriptions.
Proposed Amendment of V-53, V-115, V-140, V-339, T-215, and T-323, and Revocation of V-339 in the Vicinity of Hazard, KY
This action proposes to amend three VHF Omnidirectional Range (VOR) Federal airways, V-53, V-115, and V-140; amend two Area Navigation (RNAV) T-routes, T-215 and T-323; and remove one VOR Federal airway, V-339, in the vicinity of Hazard, KY. The Air Traffic Service (ATS) route modifications are necessary due to the planned decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Hazard, KY, VOR/Distance Measuring Equipment (VOR/DME) navigation aid (NAVAID) which provides navigation guidance for portions of the affected ATS routes. The Hazard VOR is being decommissioned as part of the FAA's VOR Minimum Operational Network (MON) program.
Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace, Revocation of Class E Airspace, and Establishment of Class E Airspace; Multiple Ohio Towns
This action amends the Class D airspace and Class E surface airspace at Wright-Patterson AFB, Dayton, OH, and Wilmington Air Park, Wilmington, OH; revokes the Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class D and Class E surface area at Wilmington Air Park; amends the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at multiple Ohio airports; and establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Springfield-Beckley Municipal Airport, Springfield, OH. This action is the result of airspace reviews caused by the decommissioning of the Springfield VHF omnidirectional range (VOR) navigation aid as part of the VOR Minimum Operational Network (MON) Program, and the decommissioning of the Springfield localizer and glideslope at Springfield-Beckley Municipal Airport. The names and geographic coordinates of multiple Ohio airports are also being updated to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database.
Pilot Professional Development; Technical Amendment; Correction.
The FAA is correcting a final rule technical amendment published on June 30, 2020 (85 FR 39069). In that final rule, which became effective on the date of publication, the FAA corrected errors in regulatory cross references associated with the Pilot Professional Development final rule. The FAA inadvertently listed an incorrect amendment number for the final rule technical amendment. This document corrects that error.
