Federal Aviation Administration Federal Register Rules and Proposed Rules, Monday, October 18, 2010

Rules

  • Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace; Klamath Falls, OR. 14 CFR Part 71, Docket No. FAA–2010–0651; Airspace Docket No. 10–ANM–7.  SUMMARY: This action will amend Class D and Class E airspace at Klamath Falls, OR.  Decommissioning of the Merrill Non-Directional Radio Beacon (NDB) at Klamath Falls Airport has made this action necessary for the safety and management of  Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport. This action also will  adjust the geographic coordinates of the airport and a navigation aid, and will  change the name of the airport.
  • Establishment of Class E Airspace; Kalaupapa, HI. 14 CFR Part 71, Docket No. FAA–2010–0650; Airspace Docket No. 10–AWP–9. SUMMARY: This action will establish Class E airspace at Kalaupapa, HI, to accommodate aircraft using a new  Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) at Kalaupapa Airport. This will improve the safety  and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport.
  • Revocation of Class C Airspace, Establishment of Class D Airspace, and  Modification of Class E Airspace; Columbus, GA. 14 CFR Part 71, Docket No. FAA–2010–0386; Airspace Docket No. 10–AWA–1. SUMMARY: This action removes the Columbus, GA, Class C airspace area; establishes Class D airspace to  replace the Class C airspace; and amends the existing Class E surface area and  700 foot Class E airspace at Columbus, GA. The FAA is taking this action because Columbus Metropolitan Airport no longer meets the criteria required to qualify for a Class C airspace designation. Reconfiguring the airspace facilitates more  efficient use of airspace in the Columbus, GA area. A minor correction to the  geographic coordinates for Lawson Army Airfield (AAF) also will be made.
  • Standard Instrument Approach Procedures, and Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures; Miscellaneous Amendments. 14 CFR Part 97, Docket No. 30748; Amdt. No. 3395. SUMMARY: This rule establishes, amends,
    suspends, or revokes 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 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. 14 CFR Part 97, Docket No. 30747; Amdt. No. 3394. SUMMARY: This establishes, amends, suspends, or revokes 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 safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace and to promote safe  flight operations under instrument flight rules at the affected airports.

Proposed Rules

  • Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce plc (RR) RB211–524 Series Turbofan Engines. 14 CFR Part 39 [Docket No. FAA–2009–0162; Directorate Identifier 2004–NE–19–AD] RIN 2120–AA64. SUMMARY: This action revises an earlier
    proposed airworthiness directive (AD), applicable to certain RR RB211–524 series turbofan engines. That proposal would have required initial and repetitive borescope inspections of the head section and meterpanel assembly of the  combustion liner, and replacement if necessary with serviceable parts. That  proposal was prompted by an inquiry submitted by an operator, which resulted in  RR performing a complete review of the affected front combustion liner part numbers (P/Ns). This action revises the proposed rule by clarifying the applicability paragraph (c) of the proposed AD. We are proposing this AD to  prevent deterioration of the engine combustion liner, which can result in combustion liner breakup, case burnthrough, engine fire, and damage to the airplane.
  • Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Panguitch, UT. 14 CFR Part 71 [Docket No. FAA–2010–0529; Airspace Docket No. 10–ANM–3].  SUMMARY: This supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking would expand controlled Class E airspace to include a portion extending upward from 1,200 feet above the surface at Panguitch Municipal Airport, Panguitch, UT. In an NPRM published in the  Federal Register June 28, 2010, the FAA proposed to establish controlled airspace from 700 feet above the surface. The FAA has reassessed the proposal to include Class E airspace 700 feet and 1,200 feet above the surface to further the  safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the  airport.
