Notice of Opportunity for Public Comment on Release and Sale of Land Acquired With Airport Improvement Program (AIP) Assistance at Evergreen Municipal Airport, Evergreen, Alabama
Document Number: 2021-09952
Type: Notice
Date: 2021-05-11
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
Notice is being given that the FAA is considering a request from the City of Evergreen, Alabama to sell 1.76 acres of airport property, previously purchased through an AIP grant for the runway protection zone, to be used by the state highway department as right-of-way for the widening of US Highway 84.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes
Document Number: 2021-09876
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-05-11
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus SAS Model A318, A319, A320, A321, A330-200, A330-200 Freighter, A330-300, A330-800, A330-900, A340-200, A340-300, A340-500, A340-600, and A380-800 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report that repetitive disconnection and reconnection of certain batteries during airplane parking or storage could lead to a reduction in capacity of those batteries. This proposed AD would require replacing certain nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd) batteries with serviceable Ni- Cd batteries, or maintaining the electrical storage capacity of those Ni-Cd batteries during airplane storage or parking, as specified in a European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which is proposed for incorporation by reference. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Textron Aviation Inc. (Type Certificate Previously Held by Cessna Aircraft Company) Airplanes
Document Number: 2021-09871
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-05-11
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Textron Aviation Inc. (Textron) (Type Certificate previously held by Cessna Aircraft Company) Models 210N, 210R, P210N, P210R, T210N, T210R, 177, 177A, 177B, 177RG, and F177RG airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by the in-flight break-up of a Model T210M airplane in Australia, due to fatigue cracking that initiated at a corrosion pit, and subsequent corrosion reports on other Model 210- series and Model 177-series airplanes. This proposed AD would require visual and eddy current inspections of the carry-thru spar lower cap, corrective action if necessary, application of a protective coating and corrosion inhibiting compound (CIC), and reporting the inspection results to the FAA. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Federal Aviation Administration Policy: Review of Solar Energy System Projects on Federally-Obligated Airports
Document Number: 2021-09862
Type: Rule
Date: 2021-05-11
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This document establishes FAA policy for proposals by sponsors of federally-obligated airports to construct solar energy systems on airport property. FAA is publishing this policy because it is in the public interest to enhance safety by analyzing ocular impact of proposed solar energy systems on airport traffic control tower personnel. The policy applies to proposed on-airport solar energy systems at federally-obligated towered airports. This policy replaces the Interim Policy published on October 23, 2013.
