Special Air Traffic Procedures for Super Bowl LII
In anticipation of a large number of aircraft operating in the Minneapolis−St. Paul metropolitan area during the week of Super Bowl LII, special security provisions will be in effect for this event including (but not limited to) Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs), two−way communication, and discrete transponder requirements. Pilots are encouraged to check NOTAMs frequently to verify they have the most current information. TFR information is normally disseminated by a FDC NOTAM 3 to 5 days prior to the event. Once published, text and graphic depictions of restrictions may be found at http://tfr.faa.gov. You can also read about the FAA's flight restrictions, notices, and published routes at www.fly2sb52.org.
AD Issued for Piper Fuel Tank Selector Placards
The FAA this week issued an Airworthiness Directive (AD) that applies to certain model Piper PA-28s. AD 2018-02-05 requires inspecting the fuel tank selector cover to verify that the left and right fuel tank selector placards are located at the proper positions and replacing those that are improperly located with new placards. The AD, which goes into effect on Feb. 7, 2018, was prompted by a quality control issue at the manufacturer that resulted in the installation of the fuel tank selector covers with the left and right fuel tank selector placards improperly located. For more details, see the AD at https://go.usa.gov/xnwhA.
