Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Montezuma, GA
Document Number: 2020-18990
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-08-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface in Montezuma, GA, due to the decommissioning of the Montezuma non-directional beacon (NDB) and cancellation of the associated approach at Dr. CP Savage Sr. Airport. This action would also update the geographic coordinates of the airport. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations in the area.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-18936
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-08-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2019-03- 11, which applied to certain Airbus SAS Model A350-941 and -1041 airplanes. AD 2019-03-11 required revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new or more restrictive maintenance requirements and airworthiness limitations. This AD requires revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations 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.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-18930
Type: Rule
Date: 2020-08-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus SAS Model A318-111, -112, -121, and -122 airplanes; Model A319-111, -112, -113, -114, -115, -131, -132, and -133 airplanes; Model A320-211, -212, -214, -216, -231, -232, and -233 airplanes; and Model A321-111, -112, -131, -211, -212, -213, -231, and -232 airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of fatigue cracks on continuity fittings at the lower framing of the front windshield on airplanes on which a certain production modification has been embodied. Additional analysis showed that certain certification requirements for damage tolerance and fatigue are not met on airplanes in a certain post- production modification configuration. This AD requires repetitive high frequency eddy current (HFEC) inspections of the central node windshield area for cracking, and applicable corrective actions if cracking is found, 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.
Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Trenton, MO
Document Number: 2020-18921
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-08-28
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 Trenton Municipal Airport, Trenton, MO. The FAA is proposing this action as the result of an airspace review caused by the decommissioning of the Trenton non- directional beacon (NDB) which provided navigation information to the instrument procedures at this airport. The geographical coordinates would also be updated to coincide with the FAA's aeronautic database. Airspace redesign is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations at this airport.

This action amends VHF Omnidirectional Range (VOR) Federal airways V-24, V-97, and V-171 in the vicinity of Lone Rock, WI. These amendments are due to the planned decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Lone Rock, WI, VOR/Distance Measuring Equipment (VOR/DME) navigation aid (NAVAID) which provides navigation guidance for portions of the affected airways. The Lone Rock, WI, VOR is being decommissioned as part of the FAA's VOR Minimum Operational Network (MON) program.
