July 10,2013

PROPOSED RULES

Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Everett, WA [FR DOC# 2013-16572]
SUMMARY: This action proposes to modify Class E airspace at Everett, WA, to
accommodate aircraft departing and arriving under Instrument Flight Rules
(IFR) at Snohomish County Airport (Paine Field), WA. A minor adjustment
would also be made to the geographic coordinates of the Airport. This
action, initiated by the biennial review of the Snohomish County airspace
area, would enhance the safety and management of aircraft operations at the
airport.

Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Battle Mountain, NV [FR DOC#
2013-16573] SUMMARY: This action proposes to establish Class E airspace at
the Battle Mountain VHF Omni-Directional Radio Range Tactical Air
Navigational Aid (VORTAC) navigation aid, Battle Mountain, NV, to
facilitate vectoring of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) aircraft under
control of Salt Lake City, Oakland, and Los Angeles Air Route Traffic
Control Centers (ARTCCs). The FAA is proposing this action to enhance the
safety and management of aircraft operations within the National Airspace
System.

Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Wasatch, UT [FR DOC# 2013-
16568] SUMMARY: This action proposes to establish Class E airspace at the
Wasatch VHF Omni-Directional Radio Range Tactical Air Navigational Aid
(VORTAC) navigation aid, Wasatch, UT, to facilitate vectoring of Instrument
Flight Rules (IFR) aircraft under control of Salt Lake City Air Route
Traffic Control Center (ARTCC). The FAA is proposing this action to enhance
the safety and management of aircraft operations within the National
Airspace System.

Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Glasgow, MT [FR DOC# 2013-
16571] SUMMARY: This action proposes to establish Class E airspace at the
Glasgow VHF Omni-Directional Radio Range/Distance Measuring Equipment
(VOR/DME) navigation aid, Glasgow, MT, to facilitate vectoring of
Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) aircraft under control of Salt Lake City and
Minneapolis Air Route Traffic Control Centers (ARTCCs). The FAA is
proposing this action to enhance the safety and management of aircraft
operations within the National Airspace System.

 
RULES

Airworthiness Directives; Dassault Aviation Airplanes [FR DOC# 2013-15141]
SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain
DASSAULT AVIATION Model FALCON 2000, FALCON 2000EX, MYSTERE-FALCON 900, and FALCON 900EX airplanes; and all Model MYSTERE-FALCON 50 airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports that collapse of the main landing gear (MLG) could
cause wing tank structure failure, which could result in fuel spillage and
consequent fire hazard. This AD requires modification of the wing fuel
tanks in the area of the wheel well. We are issuing this AD to prevent fuel
spillage in the event of a MLG collapse, and consequent fire hazard.

Airworthiness Directives; Piper Aircraft, Inc. Airplanes [FR DOC# 2013-
15149] SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for
certain Piper Aircraft, Inc. Models PA-46-310P, PA-46-350P, PA-46R-350T,
and PA-46-500TP airplanes. This AD requires inspecting the fuel vent valves
to identify if the nitrile parts are installed and modifying and eventually
replacing the fuel vent valves if the nitrile parts are installed. This AD
was prompted by nitrile fuel vent valves not providing the correct
ventilation. If not corrected, this unsafe condition may lead to structural
damage of the wings, which could result in loss of control. We are issuing
this AD to correct the unsafe condition on these products.

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes [FR DOC# 2013-15153] SUMMARY: We
are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model
A319-112, -113, and -132 airplanes; Model A320-211, -212, -214, -231, and
-232 airplanes; and Model A321-111 and -131 airplanes. This AD was prompted
by a report of two fatigue cracks on the left-hand and right-hand sides of
the continuity fittings at the front windshield lower framing on a Model
A319 series airplane. This AD requires a high frequency eddy current (HFEC)
inspection for any cracking on the left- hand and right-hand sides of the
windshield central lower node continuity fittings, and repair if necessary.
We are issuing this AD to detect and correct cracking of the windshield
central lower node continuity fittings, which could reduce the structural
integrity of the airplane.

Airworthiness Directives; Dowty Propellers Propellers [FR DOC# 2013-15292]
SUMMARY: We are revising an existing airworthiness directive (AD) that
applies to all Dowty Propellers R408/6-123-F/17 model propellers. That AD
currently requires initial applications of sealant between the bus bar
assembly and the backplate assembly of certain line-replaceable units, and
repetitive applications of sealant on all R408/6-123-F/17 model propellers.
This new AD requires the same actions and allows the use of an equivalent
sealant as prescribed in revised service information. This AD was prompted
by the need to add an optional terminating action to the applications of
sealant. We are issuing this AD to prevent an in-flight double generator
failure, which could result in reduced control of the airplane.

Airworthiness Directives; Pilatus Aircraft Ltd. Airplanes [FR DOC# 2013-
15532] SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all
PILATUS Aircraft Ltd. Model PC-7 airplanes. This AD results from mandatory
continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by an aviation authority
of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an
aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as a need to
incorporate new revisions into the Limitations section of the FAA-approved
maintenance program (e.g., maintenance manual). The limitations were
revised to include an emergency fuel control system adjustment test. We are
issuing this AD to require actions to address the unsafe condition on these
products.

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes [FR DOC# 2013-15335] SUMMARY: We
are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Model
A318, A319, A320, and A321 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by a
report of an uncommanded nose landing gear (NLG) retraction. This AD
requires installing a power interruption protection circuit for the landing
gear control interface unit (LGCIU). We are issuing this AD to prevent
untimely unlocking and/or retraction of the NLG, which, while on the
ground, could result in injury to ground personnel and damage to the
airplane.

Amendment of Class E Airspace; Ogallala, NE [FR DOC# 2013-16448] SUMMARY:
This action amends Class E airspace at Ogallala, NE. Additional controlled
airspace is necessary to accommodate new Area Navigation (RNAV) Standard
Instrument Approach Procedures at Searle Field Airport. This action
enhances the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rule (IFR)
operations at the airport.

Establishment of Class E Airspace; Sanibel, FL [FR DOC# 2013-16442]
SUMMARY: This action corrects the geographic coordinates in the airspace
description of a final rule, published in the Federal Register on June 10,
2013, establishing controlled airspace at Sanibel Island Heliport, Sanibel,
FL.

Establishment of Class E Airspace; Elbow Lake, MN [FR DOC# 2013-16444]
SUMMARY: This action establishes Class E airspace at Elbow Lake, MN.
Controlled airspace is necessary to accommodate new Area Navigation (RNAV)
Standard Instrument Approach Procedures at Elbow Lake Municipal–Pride of
the Prairie Airport. The FAA is taking this action to enhance the safety
and management of Instrument Flight Rule (IFR) operations at the airport.
