Public Notice for Waiver of Aeronautical Land-Use Assurance [FR DOC# 2013-15130]
SUMMARY: The FAA is considering a proposal to change a 0.747-acre portion of
airport land from aeronautical use to non-aeronautical use and to authorize the
sale of airport property located at Morris Municipal Airport, Morris, Illinois. The
subject portion of airport property considered for release from obligation to be
maintained for aeronautical use and sale includes a 0.346-acre portion of Parcel G
(110.55 total acres) and 0.401-acre portion of Parcel C2 (73.27 total acres) that
are located in the west quadrant of the airport along Illinois Route 47 and
currently not being used directly for aeronautical purposes. Currently, ownership
of the property provides for protection of FAR Part 77 surfaces and compatible land
use which would continue to be protected with deed restrictions required in the
transfer of land ownership. The change from aeronautical to non-aeronautical use
would allow for the widening of Route 47 which is directly adjacent to the airport.
The aforementioned land is not needed for aeronautical use.
Airworthiness Criteria: Proposed Airship Design Criteria for Lockheed Martin
Aeronautics Model LMZ1M Airship [FR DOC# 2013-15056] SUMMARY: This notice announces the availability of and requests comments on the proposed design criteria for the Lockheed Martin Aeronautics model LMZ1M airship. On March 12, 2012 Lockheed Martin Aeronautics submitted an application for type certification for the model LMZ1M.
The LMZ1M is a manned cargo lifting hybrid airship incorporating a number of
advanced features. The Hybrid Certification Criteria (HCC) for Transport Category
Hybrid Airships, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company Document Number 1008D0122 Rev. C dated January 31, 2013 was specifically developed for the LMZ1M.
Notice of Availability of a Draft Environmental Assessment [FR DOC# 2013-15134]
SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes to fund, construct,
operate, and maintain a replacement aerial tramway (ATRAM) system on South Franklin
Mountain, El Paso, Texas. The purpose of the proposed project is the replacement of
the existing ATRAM with a modern ATRAM system. The FAA needs to continue the safe
and reliable transport of FAA maintenance personnel to service communication
facilities located at the top of South Franklin Mountain. The FAA’s preferred
alternative is to construct, operate, and maintain a replacement ATRAM at a
location adjacent to the existing ATRAM system at South Franklin Mountain, El Paso,
Texas. The FAA has prepared a Draft Environmental Assessment (DEA) in conformance
with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) and
FAA Order 1050.1E, Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures. The DEA analyzes
the potential environmental impacts that may result from construction and operation
of the proposed replacement ATRAM system at the proposed site, as well as the no
action alternative (i.e., not constructing and operating the replacement ATRAM).
First Meeting: RTCA Special Committee 228-Minimum Operational Performance Standards for Unmanned Aircraft Systems [FR DOC# 2013-15139] SUMMARY: The FAA is issuing this notice to advise the public of a meeting of RTCA Special Committee 228–Minimum Operational Performance Standards for Unmanned Aircraft Systems.
Thirteenth Meeting: RTCA Special Committee 225, Rechargeable Lithium Battery and
Battery Systems-Small and Medium Size [FR DOC# 2013-15138] SUMMARY: The FAA is
issuing this notice to advise the public of the twelfth meeting of the RTCA Special
Committee 225, Rechargeable Lithium Battery and Battery Systems–Small and Medium
Seventh Meeting: RTCA Special Committee 226, Audio Systems and Equipment [FR DOC# 2013-15136] SUMMARY: The FAA is issuing this notice to advise the public of the
sixth meeting of the RTCA Special Committee 226, Audio Systems and Equipment
Proposed Amendment of Class D Airspace; Santa Monica, CA [FR DOC# 2013-15133]
SUMMARY: This SNPRM would further modify the Class D airspace area at Santa Monica
Municipal Airport, Santa Monica, CA. In a NPRM published in the Federal Register of
October, 27, 2011, the FAA proposed to create additional Class D airspace at Santa
Monica Municipal Airport. The FAA has reassessed the proposal and finds that
further enlargement of the airspace area is necessary for the safety and management
of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations in the Santa Monica, CA, area. The
geographic coordinates of the airport also would be adjusted.
Special Conditions: Cessna Aircraft Company, Model J182T; Electronic Engine Control
System Installation [FR DOC# 2013-13841] SUMMARY: These special conditions are
issued for the Cessna Aircraft Company (Cessna) Model J182T airplane. This airplane
will have a novel or unusual design feature(s) associated with the installation of
an electronic engine control. The applicable airworthiness regulations do not
contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for this design feature. These
special conditions contain the additional safety standards that the Administrator
considers necessary to establish a level of safety equivalent to that established
by the existing airworthiness standards.
