Airworthiness Directives; Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation Helicopters
Document Number: 2021-03950
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-03-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation (Sikorsky) Model S-92A helicopters. This proposed AD was prompted by an incident of a side facing utility seat detaching from wall attachment points. This proposed AD would require modifying certain side facing utility seats and observer seats. This proposed AD would also prohibit installing those seats unless the modification has been accomplished. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Proposed Amendment of Restricted Area R-7001C and Establishment of Restricted Areas R-7001D, R-7002A, R-7002B, and R-7002C; Guernsey, WY
Document Number: 2021-00748
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-03-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend restricted area R-7001C and establish three restricted areas, R-7001D, R-7002A, R-7002B, and R- 7002C at Guernsey, WY. The Wyoming Army National Guard (WYARNG) requested the establishment of the new restricted areas to support its air-to-ground firing from helicopters and longer range artillery training. This additional airspace allows for the segregation of hazardous activities from non-participating air traffic. The FAA is also proposing to amend R-7001C to correct an inadvertent error to ensure proper vertical separation.
