Notice of Intent of Waiver With Respect to Land; Prairie Du Chien Municipal Airport, Prairie Du Chien, WI
Document Number: 2021-11342
Type: Notice
Date: 2021-05-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is considering a proposal to change 0.50 acres (future Parcel 17D) of Clear Zone Easement contained in Parcel 17B to Avigation Easement in exchange for converting 2.94 acres of land currently not controlled by the Airport Sponsor (future Parcel 36) to an Avigation Easement for approach protection. Both Parcel 17B and future Parcel 36 are owned by Crossing Rivers Health Center (and are being sold to a commercial developer) and located adjacent to Prairie du Chien Municipal Airport, Prairie du Chien, WI. The proposed release of 0.50 acres of Clear Zone Easement to Avigation Easement is not in the Runway Protection Zone (RPZ). The release of 0.50 acres from Clear Zone Easement to Avigation Easement is required to allow development on the property that is being sold by the Crossing Rivers Health Center. The conversion from Clear Zone Easement to Avigation Easement will not result in any impact to surfaces protected by Part 77 or airport design surfaces. The Clear Zone Easement was originally purchased to enable the Airport to ensure airport compatible land use. The proposed future use of 0.50 acres of the land will be a compatible land use.
Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; Clearance of Renewed Approval of Information Collection: General Operating and Flight Rules FAR 91 and FAR 107
Document Number: 2021-11300
Type: Notice
Date: 2021-05-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FAA invites public comments about our intention to request Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to renew an information collection. The collection involves information required to process a request for a Minimum Equipment List (MEL) Letter of Authorization (LOA) in accordance with certain regulations prescribing general operating and flight rules. The information to be collected is necessary because a written request is required to obtain an MEL LOA. The information collected includes only those details essential to evaluate the request, approve the MEL, and issue the LOA.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Canada Limited Partnership (Type Certificate Previously Held by C Series Aircraft Limited Partnership (CSALP); Bombardier, Inc.) Airplanes
Document Number: 2021-11237
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-05-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Canada Limited Partnership Model BD-500-1A10 and BD- 500-1A11 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of wear damage found between the bonding clamps and the fuel feed tubes inside the left- and right-hand fuel tanks. This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections of the fuel feed tubes for damage, replacement if necessary, and modification of the fuel feed line installation inside the left- and right-hand fuel tanks, which would terminate the repetitive inspections, as specified in a Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) AD, which is proposed for incorporation by reference. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Proposed Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace and Establishment of Class E Airspace; Waco, TX
Document Number: 2021-11233
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-05-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend the Class D and Class E airspace and establish Class E airspace at airports in Waco, TX. The FAA is proposing this action as the result of biennial airspace reviews. The name and geographic coordinates of various airports and navigational aids would also be updated to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database.
Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Hondo, TX
Document Number: 2021-11232
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-05-28
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 South Texas Regional Airport at Hondo, Hondo, TX. The FAA is proposing this action as the result of an airspace review caused by the decommissioning of the Hondo non- directional beacon (NDB). The name and geographic coordinates of the airport would also be updated to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database.
Proposed Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace, Revocation of Class E Airspace and Establishment of Class E Airspace; Carbondale and Marion, IL
Document Number: 2021-11231
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-05-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend the Class D airspace and Class E airspace at Carbondale, IL, and Marion, IL; revoke the Class E airspace area designated as an extension to Class D airspace at Veterans Airport of Southern Illinois, Marion, IL; and establish Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Southern Illinois Airport, Carbondale/Murphysboro, IL. The FAA is proposing this action as the result of airspace reviews caused by the decommissioning of the Marion very high frequency (VHF) omnidirectional range (VOR) as part of the VOR Minimal Operational Network (MON) Program. The names and geographic coordinates of the airports would also be updated to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database.
Proposed Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace and Revocation of Class E Airspace; Columbus, OH
Document Number: 2021-11230
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-05-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend the Class D airspace and Class E airspace at Columbus, OH, and revoke the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Dan Darby Airport, Columbus, OH. The FAA is proposing this action as the result of an airspace review caused by the decommissioning of the Rickenbacker International Airport runway 5R middle marker and the cancellation of instrument procedures at Dan Darby Airport. The name and geographic coordinates of various airports would also be updated to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database.

Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-05-28
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 Eveleth-Virginia Municipal Airport, Eveleth, MN.

Airworthiness Directives; Leonardo S.p.a. Helicopters
Document Number: 2021-11198
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-05-28
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Leonardo S.p.a. Model AW189 helicopters. This proposed AD was prompted by corrosion on the inlet check valve banjo fitting of emergency flotation system (EFS) float assemblies. This proposed AD would require visually inspecting each banjo fitting installed on an affected EFS float assembly, and depending on the results, removing the banjo fitting from service. This proposed AD would also require applying corrosion inhibiting compound to each banjo fitting installed on an affected EFS float assembly and prohibit installing an affected EFS float assembly unless the banjo fitting inspection, banjo fitting replacement, and corrosion inhibiting compound application requirements have been accomplished as specified in a European Aviation Safety Agency (now European Union Aviation Safety Agency) (EASA) AD, which is proposed for incorporation by reference (IBR). The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce Deutschland Ltd & Co KG (Type Certificate previously Held by Rolls-Royce plc) Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2021-11158
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-05-28
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) Trent XWB-75, Trent XWB-79, Trent XWB-79B, and Trent XWB-84 model turbofan engines. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of cracks in the intermediate-pressure compressor (IPC) rotor 1 (R1) blades installed on certain Trent XWB model turbofan engines. This proposed AD would require initial and repetitive borescope inspections (BSIs) of the affected IPC R1 blades and, depending on the results of the inspections, replacement of all 34 IPC R1 blades. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
