PROPOSED RULES

Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes [FR DOC# 2013-20715] SUMMARY: We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes.
This proposed AD was prompted by reports of fractured rudder pedal tubes installed on the pilot-side rudder bar assembly. This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections for cracking and damage of both pilot-side rudder pedal tubes, and replacement of affected pilot-side rudder bar assemblies if necessary. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct cracking of both pilot-side rudder pedal tubes, which could result in loss of pilot rudder pedal input causing reduced yaw controllability or a runway excursion.

Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Gainesville, TX [FR DOC# 2013-20719] SUMMARY: This action proposes to amend Class E airspace at Gainesville, TX. Decommissioning of the Gainesville radio beacon (RBN) at Gainesville Municipal Airport has made reconfiguration necessary for standard instrument approach procedures and for the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport.

Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Del Rio, TX [FR DOC# 2013-20716] SUMMARY: This action proposes to amend Class E airspace at Del Rio, TX. Additional controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate new circling approach requirements at Laughlin Air Force Base (AFB). The FAA is taking this action to enhance the safety and
management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations for instrument approach procedures at the airport.

Proposed Modification of Class E Airspace; Prineville, OR [FR DOC# 2013-20729] SUMMARY: This action proposes to modify Class E airspace at Prineville, OR, to accommodate aircraft using Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures at Prineville Airport. A minor adjustment would also be made to the geographic coordinates of the airport. The FAA is proposing this action to enhance the safety and management of aircraft operations at the airport.

Proposed Revocation of Class E Airspace; Danville, IL [FR DOC# 2013-20722] SUMMARY: This action proposes to remove Class E airspace at Danville, IL. The FAA has determined that, because of changes in the composition of flight operations at Vermilion Regional Airport, a Class E surface area is no longer needed to enhance the safety and
management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations for standard instrument approach procedures at the airport.
