Proposed Revision of Class E Airspace; Wenatchee, WA, 33401-33402 [05-11328]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 109 / Wednesday, June 8, 2005 / Proposed Rules associated failure condition category. If the AP/SAS is considered to be a complex system, compliance with the requirements contained in this document for aspects of the AP/SAS that can result in failure conditions classified as ‘‘Major’’ may be shown by analysis, in combination with appropriate testing to validate the analysis. Compliance with the requirements contained in this special condition for aspects of the AP/SAS that can result in failure conditions classified as ‘‘Hazardous/Severe-Major’’ may be shown by flight-testing in combination with analysis and simulation, and the appropriate testing to validate the analysis. Flight tests may be limited for this classification of failures due to safety considerations. Compliance with the requirements contained in this special condition for aspects of the AP/SAS that can result in failure conditions classified as ‘‘Catastrophic’’ may be shown by analysis, and appropriate testing in combination with simulation to validate the analysis. Very limited flight tests in combination with simulation are typically used as a part of a showing of compliance for failures in this classification. Flight tests are performed only in circumstances that use operational variations, or extrapolations from other flight performance aspects to address flight safety. This proposed special condition would require that the AP/SAS system installed on a Robinson Model R44 helicopter, Type Certification Data Sheet Number H11NM, Revision 3, meet these requirements to adequately address the failure effects identified by the FHA, and subsequently verified by the SSA, within the defined design integrity requirements. This special condition would be applicable to the Hoh Aeronautics, Inc. AP/SAS installed as an STC approval, in a Robinson Model R44 helicopter, Type Certification Data Sheet Number H11NM, Revision 3. Conclusion This action would affect only certain novel or unusual design features for a Hoh Aeronautics, Inc. AP/SAS STC installed on one model series of helicopter. It is not a rule of general applicability and affects only the applicant who applied to the FAA for approval of these features on the helicopter. The FAA is requesting comments to allow interested persons to submit views. 15:36 Jun 07, 2005 Aircraft, Air transportation, Aviation safety, Rotorcraft, Safety. The authority citation for this special condition is as follows: 42 U.S.C. 7572, 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40105, 40113, 44701– 44702, 44704, 44709, 44711, 44713, 44715, 45303. The Special Condition Accordingly, pursuant to the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the following special condition is proposed as part of the Hoh Aeronautics, Inc. supplemental type certificate basis for an Autopilot/ Stability Augmentation System to be installed on a Robinson Model R44 helicopter, Type Certification Data Sheet Number H11NM, Revision 3. The Autopilot/Stability Augmentation System must be designed and installed so that the failure conditions identified in the Functional Hazard Assessment and verified by the System Safety Assessment, after design completion, are adequately addressed in accordance with the ‘‘Definitions’’ and ‘‘Requirements’’ sections (including the integrity, environmental, and test and analysis requirements) of this special condition. Issued in Fort Worth, Texas, on May 26, 2005. S. Frances Cox, Acting Manager, Rotorcraft Directorate, Aircraft Certification Service.

The Proposal This action would amend Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations, part 71 (14 CFR part 71) by revising Class E airspace at Wenatchee/Pangborn Airport, Wenatchee, WA. The establishment of a new Standard ILS SIAP requires additional Class E controlled airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface for the safety of IFR aircraft executing the new Standard ILS SIAP at Wenatchee/Pangborn Memorial Airport, Wenatchee, WA. Controlled airspace is necessary where there is a requirement for IFR services, which include arrival, departure, and transitioning to/from the terminal or en route environment. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9M dated August 30, 2004, and effective September 16, 2004, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in this order. The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. Therefore, this proposed regulations; (1) is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed rule would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

The Proposal

    This action would amend Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations, part 
71 (14 CFR part 71) by revising Class E airspace at Wenatchee/Pangborn 
Airport, Wenatchee, WA. The establishment of a new Standard ILS SIAP 
requires additional Class E controlled airspace extending upward from 
700 feet or more above the surface for the safety of IFR aircraft 
executing the new Standard ILS SIAP at Wenatchee/Pangborn Memorial 
Airport, Wenatchee, WA. Controlled airspace is necessary where there is 
a requirement for IFR services, which include arrival, departure, and 
transitioning to/from the terminal or en route environment.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of 
FAA Order 7400.9M dated August 30, 2004, and effective September 16, 
2004, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E 
airspace designation listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in this order.
    The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves 
an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. 
Therefore, this proposed regulations; (1) is not a ``significant 
regulatory action'' under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a 
``significant rule'' under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 
FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a 
regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since 
this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures 
and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed rule would not 
have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
