Federal Register Proposed Rules, Rules and Notices for June 26,2013

June 26,2013

NOTICES

Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; Clearance of
Renewed Approval of Information Collection: Safe Disposition of Life-Limited
Aircraft Parts [FR DOC# 2013-15315] SUMMARY: In accordance with the Paperwork
Reduction Act of 1995, FAA invites public comments about our intention to request
the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval to renew an information
collection. This collection involves response to the Wendall H. Ford Investment and
Reform Act for the 21st Century which requires that all persons who remove any
life-limited aircraft part have a method to prevent the installation of that part
after it has reached its life limit.

Proposed Establishment, Modification and Cancellation of Air Traffic Service (ATS)
Routes; Northeast United States [FR DOC# 2013-15283] SUMMARY: This action proposes to modify two jet routes, six VOR Federal airways, and three area navigation
routes; to establish six area navigation (RNAV) routes; and to cancel two VOR
Federal airways in the northeast United States. The FAA is proposing this action
due to the scheduled decommissioning of the Lake Henry, PA, VHF Omnidirectional
Range/Tactical Air Navigation (VORTAC) facility which provides navigation guidance
for portions of the affected routes. This action would enhance the safety and
efficient management of aircraft within the National Airspace System.

 

RULES

Airworthiness Directives; General Electric Company Turbofan Engines [FR DOC# 2013-
15001] SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all General
Electric Company (GE) GE90-110B1 and GE90-115B turbofan engines. This emergency AD was sent previously to all known U.S. owners and operators of these engines. This
AD prohibits operation of an airplane with affected transfer gearbox assemblies
(TGBs) installed on both engines five days after the effective date of this AD.
This AD was prompted by reports of two failures of TGBs which resulted in in-flight
shutdowns (IFSDs). We are issuing this AD to prevent additional IFSDs of one or
more engines, loss of thrust control, and damage to the airplane.

Amendment of Class D Airspace; El Monte, CA [FR DOC# 2013-15137] SUMMARY: This
action corrects a final rule published in the Federal Register of May 14, 2013,
that amends Class D airspace at El Monte Airport, El Monte, CA. In that rule, the
legal description references the airport bearing incorrectly.

Establishment of Class E Airspace; Port Townsend, WA [FR DOC# 2013-15135] SUMMARY: This action establishes Class E airspace at Jefferson County International Airport, Port Townsend, WA, to accommodate aircraft using a new Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures at
Jefferson County International Airport. This improves the safety and management of
Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport.
