Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Mooresville, NC
Document Number: 2021-16346
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-08-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface for Lake Norman Airpark, Mooresville, NC, by removing Lowe's Mooresville Heliport from the description, as the heliport has closed and airspace is no longer required. This action would enhance the safety and management of controlled airspace within the national airspace system. Also, during the airspace review the FAA determined a radius increase was required at Lake Norman Airpark. In addition, the FAA proposes to remove unnecessary verbiage that references Class E airspace in Statesville, NC, and Concord, NC. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations in the area.
Airworthiness Directives; Embraer S.A. Airplanes
Document Number: 2021-16339
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-08-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Embraer S.A. Models EMB-500 and EMB-505 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report that the operational envelope does not contain airspeed limitations and procedures for operating the airplane at static air temperatures below -54 [deg]C. This proposed AD would require revising the airplane flight manual (AFM) to incorporate new and revised airspeed limitations and procedures. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
