PROPOSED RULES

Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Factoryville, PA [FR DOC# 2013-12709] SUMMARY: This action proposes to amend Class E Airspace at Factoryville, PA, as the Lake Henry VORTAC has been decommissioned, requiring airspace redesign at Seamans Field Airport. This action would enhance the safety and airspace management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport.

Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Bedford, PA [FR DOC# 2013-12707] SUMMARY: This action proposes to amend Class E Airspace at Bedford, PA, as the St. Thomas VORTAC has been decommissioned, requiring airspace redesign at Bedford County Airport. This action would enhance the safety and airspace management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport. This action also would update the geographic coordinates of the airport.

 
RULES

Standard Instrument Approach Procedures, and Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures; Miscellaneous Amendments [FR DOC# 2013-12315] SUMMARY: This rule establishes, amends, suspends, or revokes Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) and associated Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures for operations at certain airports. These regulatory actions are needed because of the adoption of new or revised criteria, or because of changes occurring in the National Airspace System, such as the commissioning of new navigational facilities, adding new obstacles, or changing air traffic requirements. These changes are designed to provide safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace and to promote safe flight operations under instrument flight rules at the affected airports.

Standard Instrument Approach Procedures, and Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures; Miscellaneous Amendments [FR DOC# 2013-12318] SUMMARY: This rule establishes, amends, suspends, or revokes Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) and associated Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures for operations at certain airports. These regulatory actions are needed because of the adoption of new or revised criteria, or because of changes occurring in the National Airspace System, such as the commissioning of new navigational facilities, adding new obstacles, or changing air traffic requirements. These changes are designed to provide safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace and to promote safe flight operations under instrument flight rules at the affected airports.

Airworthiness Directives; Aircraft Industries a.s. Airplanes [FR DOC# 2013-12517]
SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Aircraft Industries a.s. Model L-420 airplanes. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness
information (MCAI) issued by the aviation authority of another country to identify and
correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe
condition as in-flight engine flame out occurred at take-off with water injection after
reduction of engine power. We are issuing this AD to require actions to address the
unsafe condition on these products.

Modification of Class D and Class E Airspace; Pueblo, CO [FR DOC# 2013-12621] SUMMARY: This action modifies Class D airspace and Class E airspace areas at Pueblo Memorial Airport, Pueblo, CO, to accommodate aircraft using VHF Omni-Directional Radio
Range/Distance Measuring Equipment (VOR/DME) standard instrument approach procedures at Pueblo Memorial Airport. This improves the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport. Adjustments to the geographic coordinates of the airport also are made.

Amendment of Class E Airspace; Eureka, NV [FR DOC# 2013-12624] SUMMARY: This action modifies Class E airspace at Eureka Airport, Eureka, NV, to accommodate aircraft using Area Navigation (RNAV) Global Positioning System (GPS) standard instrument approach procedures at the airport. This improves the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the airport.

Establishment of Class E Airspace; Tuba City, AZ [FR DOC# 2013-12623] SUMMARY: This action establishes Class E airspace at the Tuba City VHF Omni-Directional Radio Range Tactical Air Navigational Aid (VORTAC), Tuba City, AZ, to facilitate vectoring of
Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) aircraft under control of Denver, Albuquerque and Salt Lake City Air Route Traffic Control Centers (ARTCCs). This improves the safety and management of IFR operations in the vicinity of the VORTAC.

Special Conditions: Gulfstream Model G280 Airplane, Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) With Head-Up Display (HUD) [FR DOC# 2013-12605] SUMMARY: These special conditions are issued for the Gulfstream model G280 series airplanes. These airplanes, as modified by Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation, will have an advanced, enhanced-flight-vision system (EFVS). The EFVS is a novel or unusual design feature which consists of a head-up display (HUD) system modified to display forward- looking infrared (FLIR) imagery. 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.
