Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; Clearance of a Renewed Approval of Information Collection: Financial Responsibility for Licensed Launch Activities
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, FAA invites public comments about our intention to request the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to renew an information collection. The information to be collected will be used to determine if licensees have complied with financial responsibility requirements for maximum probable loss determination (MPL) analysis as set forth in FAA regulations. The FAA is responsible for determining MPL required to cover claims by a third party for bodily injury or property damage, and the United States, its agencies, and its contractors and subcontractors for covered property damage or loss, resulting from a Commercial space transportation permitted or licensed activity. The MPL determination forms the basis for financial responsibility requirements issued in a license or permit order.
Amendment of Class E Airspace; Covington, GA
This action amends Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface for Covington Municipal Airport, Covington, GA. This action is the result of an airspace review caused by the decommissioning of the ALCOVY Non-directional Beacon (NDB) and cancellation of the associated approaches. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations in the area.
Proposed Establishment of United States Area Navigation (RNAV) Route T-369; Bethel, AK
This action proposes to establish United States Area Navigation (RNAV) route T-369 in the vicinity of Bethel, AK in support of a large and comprehensive T-route modernization project for the state of Alaska.
Proposed Establishment of United States Area Navigation (RNAV) Route T-367; St. Mary's, AK
This action proposes to establish United States Area Navigation (RNAV) route T-367 in the vicinity of St. Mary's, AK in support of a large and comprehensive T-route modernization project for the state of Alaska.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Helicopters
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Helicopters Model SA330J helicopters. This proposed AD was prompted by a review of Model EC225LP helicopter data that revealed potential tightening torque loss of the attachment screws of the upper deck fittings of the three main gearbox (MGB) suspension bars. Due to design similarities, the MGB right-hand (RH) rear fittings and MGB RH rear fitting attachment screws on Model SA330J helicopters could also be affected. Additional analysis confirmed that the service life limit (life limit) (SLL) for these affected MGB RH rear fittings needs to be reduced for helicopters on which these affected parts were operated concurrently with metallic main rotor blades installed. This proposed AD would require determining the damage value and SLL of each affected MGB RH rear fitting, replacing each affected MGB RH rear fitting with a new part, and replacing the MGB RH rear fitting attachment screws, as specified in a 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.
Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Iuka, MS
This action proposes to establish Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to accommodate Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) serving Iuka Airport, Iuka, MS. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of instrument flight rules (IFR) operations in the area.
