Federal Aviation Administration June 25, 2021 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Airworthiness Directives; Leonardo S.p.a. Helicopters
Document Number: 2021-13668
Type: Rule
Date: 2021-06-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Leonardo S.p.a. Model AB139, AW139, and AW189 helicopters. This AD was prompted by a report of the in-flight failure of one of the three stainless steel external rings bonded to the main rotor swashplate boot. This AD requires repetitive inspections of these stainless steel external rings for corrosion, cracks, and the condition of the adhesive that bonds the rings to the main rotor swashplate boot, and corrective action if necessary, 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; Williams International Co., L.L.C. Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2021-13516
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-06-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Williams International Co., L.L.C. (Williams) FJ44-2A, FJ44-2C, FJ44-3A, and FJ44-3A-24 model turbofan engines. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of cracks in high-pressure turbine (HPT) disk posts and failure of an HPT disk post. This proposed AD would require the removal and replacement of the affected HPT disk before reaching its new life limit. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Tuscaloosa, AL
Document Number: 2021-13492
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-06-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface for Tuscaloosa National Airport, Tuscaloosa, AL. The FAA is proposing this action as a result of an airspace review caused by the decommissioning of the CRIMSON Very High Frequency Omnidirectional Range collocated with Tactical Air Navigation (VORTAC). This action would also update name of Tuscaloosa National Airport, (formerly Tuscaloosa Municipal Airport) AL. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations in the area.

Proposed Revocation of Class E Airspace; Red Hook, NY
Document Number: 2021-13489
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-06-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to remove Class E airspace in Red Hook, NY, as Skyhawk Airport has been abandoned, and controlled airspace is no longer required. This action would enhance the safety and management of controlled airspace within the national airspace system.
Notice of Intent To Rule on Request for Land Use Change From Aeronautical to Non-Aeronautical for 7.6 Acres of Land at Lebanon Municipal Airport, Lebanon, NH
Document Number: 2021-13484

The land is not required for aeronautical use and can be developed as an extension of the existing business park. The expansion would create a new long term revenue source for the airport and the proceeds will be deposited in the airport's operations and maintenance account.
Standard Instrument Approach Procedures, and Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures; Miscellaneous Amendments
Document Number: 2021-13470
Type: Rule
Date: 2021-06-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This rule amends, suspends, or removes Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) and associated Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures for operations at certain airports. These regulatory actions are needed because of the adoption of new or revised criteria, or because of changes occurring in the National Airspace System, such as the commissioning of new navigational facilities, adding new obstacles, or changing air traffic requirements. These changes are designed to provide for the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace and to promote safe flight operations under instrument flight rules at the affected airports.
Standard Instrument Approach Procedures, and Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures; Miscellaneous Amendments
Document Number: 2021-13469
Type: Rule
Date: 2021-06-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This rule establishes, amends, suspends, or removes Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPS) and associated Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure procedures (ODPs) for operations at certain airports. These regulatory actions are needed because of the adoption of new or revised criteria, or because of changes occurring in the National Airspace System, such as the commissioning of new navigational facilities, adding new obstacles, or changing air traffic requirements. These changes are designed to provide safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace and to promote safe flight operations under instrument flight rules at the affected airports.
Airworthiness Directives; B-N Group Ltd. Airplanes
Document Number: 2021-13463
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-06-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain B-N Group Ltd. Models BN-2, BN-2A, BN-2A-2, BN-2A-3, BN-2A- 6, BN-2A-8, BN-2A-9, BN-2A-20, BN-2A-21, BN-2A-26, BN-2A-27, BN-2B-20, BN-2B-21, BN-2B-26, BN-2B-27, BN-2T, and BN-2T-4R airplanes. This proposed AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI identifies the unsafe condition as failure of the rudder final drive rod because of cracks in the region of the taper pins. This proposed AD would require repetitively inspecting the rudder final drive rod assembly and replacing the rudder final drive assembly, if necessary. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; General Electric Company Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2021-13424
Type: Rule
Date: 2021-06-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain General Electric Company (GE) GEnx-1B64, 1B64/P1, -1B64/P2, - 1B67, -1B67/P1, -1B67/P2, -1B70, -1B70/75/P1, -1B70/75/P2, -1B70/P1, - 1B70/P2, -1B70C/P1, -1B70C/P2, -1B74/75/P1, -1B74/75/P2, -1B76/P2, - 1B76A/P2, -2B67, -2B67/P, and -2B67B model turbofan engines. This AD was prompted by a finding during an inspection by the manufacturer that two stages 6-10 compressor rotor spools in the high-pressure compressor (HPC) assembly were damaged at similar locations. Additionally, the manufacturer reported that certain stages 6-10 compressor rotor spool webs did not undergo a required fluorescent penetrant inspection (FPI) during production. This AD requires inspection of the stages 6-10 compressor rotor spool and, depending on the results of the inspection, replacement of the stages 6-10 compressor rotor spool. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes
Document Number: 2021-13407
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-06-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2019-01-08, which applies to certain The Boeing Company Model 777-200, -200LR, -300, and -300ER series airplanes. AD 2019-01-08 requires modifications for galley mounted attendant seat fittings. Since the FAA issued AD 2019-01-08, the FAA determined that additional airplanes are subject to the unsafe condition. This proposed AD would retain the requirements of AD 2019-01-18 and expand the applicability to include additional airplanes. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
Proposed Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace; South Florida
Document Number: 2021-13274
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-06-25
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation

This action would also update the geographic coordinates of the Fort Lauderdale Very High Frequency Omnidirectional Range Collocated with Distance Measuring Equipment (VOR/DME), and the QEEZY Locator Outer Marker (LOM). This action would also make an editorial change replacing the term Airport/Facility Directory with the term Chart Supplement in the legal descriptions of associated Class D and E airspace. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations in the area.
