Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-16892
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-08-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus SAS Model A318, A319, A320, and A321 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of low halon concentration in the forward and aft cargo compartments due to air leakage through cargo door seals. This AD requires repetitive cleaning and greasing of affected cargo door seals, as specified in a European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which is incorporated by reference. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Amendment of Class E Airspace; Pottsville, PA
Document Number: 2020-16857
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-08-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action removes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Schuylkill County/Joe Zerbey Airport, Pottsville, PA due to the extension of runway 11. This action also updates the geographic coordinates of the airport, and Schuylkill Medical Center Heliport (formerly Pottsville Hospital). Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations in the area.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-16843
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-08-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus SAS Model A350-941 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report that during the assembly of a certain section of the fuselage, the gaps found on self-aligning nuts for eight fasteners were out of tolerance. This proposed AD would require a rotating probe test of all fastener holes located in the affected area for any discrepancies, an eddy current inspection of the surrounding flange for any discrepancies, a detailed inspection of certain frames for any discrepancies, and corrective actions if necessary, as specified in a European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which will be incorporated by reference. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace; Las Vegas, NV
Document Number: 2020-16835
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-08-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action modifies Class E airspace by adding an area, designated as an extension to a Class D or Class E surface area. This action also implements several administrative amendments to the airspace legal descriptions.
Airworthiness Directives; Piper Aircraft, Inc. Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-16225
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-08-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is revising an earlier proposal for certain Piper Aircraft, Inc. (Piper) Models PA-28-140, PA-28-150, PA-28-160, PA-28- 180, PA-28-235, PA-32-260, and PA-32-300 airplanes. This action revises the notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) by including a revision to the manufacturer's service information, including an additional inspection method, and removing the requirement to install the access panel. The FAA is proposing this airworthiness directive (AD) to address the unsafe condition on these products. Since the actions in the revised service information would impose an additional burden over those in the NPRM, the FAA is reopening the comment period to allow the public the chance to comment on these changes.
