Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2021-01161
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-01-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2017-14-13, which applies to certain The Boeing Company Model 737-600, -700, -700C, -800, -900, and -900ER series airplanes. AD 2017-14-13 requires a torque check of the screws in the cover assembly of the heel rest for both the captain's and the first officer's rudder pedals, and corrective action if necessary. Since the FAA issued AD 2017-14-13, operators have continued to find loose rudder pedal cover fasteners on previously inspected airplanes and airplanes outside the applicability of AD 2017-14-13. This proposed AD would require modifying the rudder pedal cover and shroud, and apply to all The Boeing Company Model 737- 600, -700, -700C, -800, -900, and -900ER series airplanes and Model 737-8 and 737-9 airplanes. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2021-01160
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-01-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 737-9 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of missing sealant on the left and right wing leading edge outboard blowout door. This proposed AD would require doing a fluid seal contact inspection and a detailed inspection for missing sealant on the blowout door and applying sealant if necessary. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2021-01100
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-01-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is revising an earlier proposal for all The Boeing Company Model 737-100, -200, -200C, -300, -400, and -500 series airplanes. This action revises the notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) by reducing the compliance time for certain airplanes. The FAA is proposing this airworthiness directive (AD) to address the unsafe condition on these products. Since these actions would impose an additional burden over that in the NPRM, the FAA is reopening the comment period to allow the public the chance to comment on these changes.
Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace and Establishment of Class E Airspace; Fort Riley and Manhattan, KS
Document Number: 2021-01020
Type: Rule
Date: 2021-01-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action amends the Class D and Class E airspace at Marshall AAF, Fort Riley, KS, and Manhattan Regional Airport, Manhattan, KS, and establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Marshall AAF and Freeman Field, Junction City, KS. This action is the result of airspace reviews due to the decommissioning of the Calvary and McDowell Creek non-directional beacons (NDBs). The names and geographic coordinates of the airports and navigational aids are also being updated to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database.
Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace and Revocation of Class E Airspace; Muskegon, MI
Document Number: 2021-01019
Type: Rule
Date: 2021-01-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action amends the Class D and Class E airspace and revokes the Class E airspace designated as an extension to Class D and Class E surface areas at Muskegon County Airport, Muskegon, MI. This action is the result of an airspace review caused by the decommissioning of the Muskegon VHF omnidirectional range (VOR) navigation aid as part of the VOR Minimum Operational Network (MON) Program. The geographic coordinates of the airport are also being updated to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database.
Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Hughes, AK
Document Number: 2021-00835
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-01-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to establish Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Hughes Airport, Hughes, AK, to accommodate new area navigation (RNAV) procedures. This action would ensure the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations within the National Airspace System.
Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce Deutschland Ltd & Co KG (Type Certificate Previously Held by Rolls-Royce Deutschland GmbH, Formerly BMW Rolls-Royce GmbH) Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2021-00672
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-01-21
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Rolls-Royce Deutschland Ltd & Co KG (RRD) BR700-710A1-10, BR700-710A2-20 and BR700-710C4-11 model turbofan engines. This proposed AD was prompted by an investigation by RRD, which revealed a quality escape during the high-pressure turbine (HPT) stage 1 disk rim cooling air hole manufacturing process. This proposed AD would require removing affected HPT disks from service prior to reaching specified compliance times or at the next engine shop visit, whichever occurs first. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
