The parcel is located on the northwest corner of the Penn Yan Airport. The tract currently consists of 0.069 +/- acres of land and it is currently vacant. The requested release is for the purpose of permitting the airport owner (Yates County) to grant an easement of 0.069 +/-acres for ingress/egress to a boat storage and maintenance facility to be constructed by Land and Sea Properties on airports lands previously released. The proposed 50′ +/- wide by 60.11′ +/-easement is required to comply with the Town of Milo requirement to provide emergency equipment ingress/egress to the Land and Sea Properties boat storage and maintenance facility from the Penn Yan Airport access road. Documents reflecting the Sponsor’s request are available, by appointment only, for inspection at the Office of the Yates County Legislature and the FAA New York Airport District Office.

 

PROPOSED RULES

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes [FR DOC# 2013-20969] SUMMARY: We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 747-200B, -200C, -200F, -300, and 747SR series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of cracks of both lower chords and web on certain outboard struts. This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections for cracking of the lower spar chords and web, web lower spar chord modification, which includes inspections for cracking of the lower spar chords, and repetitive post modification inspections for cracking of the lower spar web and chord; and applicable corrective actions. We are proposing this AD to prevent cracked chords and web on certain outboard struts, which, if the chord severs, could result in reduced structural integrity of the diagonal brace load path and of the strut-to-wing attachment, and consequent separation of a strut and engine from the airplane during flight.

Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes [FR DOC# 2013-20968] SUMMARY: We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model DHC-8-102, -103, -106, -201, -202, -301, -311, and -315 series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of a pilot commanding an in-flight engine shut down in response to a low oil pressure warning indication. Further investigation revealed the mounting studs in the engine mounted alternating current (AC) generator mounting plate were pulled out of position and the threaded interface in the plate was corroded. This proposed AD would require repetitive inspections for discrepancies on certain AC generator mounting adapters, and replacing discrepant adapters with serviceable ones. This proposed AD would also require revising the maintenance program to incorporate a repetitive task specified in certain temporary revisions. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct corrosion in the AC generator mounting plate, which could result in a gap between the AC generator and the generator mounting plate, and cause loss of engine oil and consequent engine failure.

 

RULES

Pilot Certification and Qualification Requirements for Air Carrier Operations; Correction [FR DOC# 2013-20962] SUMMARY: The FAA is correcting a final rule published on July 15, 2013 (78 FR 42324). In that final rule, which became effective on the date of publication, the FAA amended its regulations to create new certification and qualification requirements for pilots in air carrier operations. The FAA inadvertently listed an incorrect amendment number for that final rule. This document corrects that error.
