The FAA amends § 39.13 by adding the following new airworthiness directive: Hamilton Sundstrand: Docket No. FAA– 2005–21691; Directorate Identifier 2005– NE–13–AD. Comments Due Date (a) The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) must receive comments on this airworthiness directive (AD) action by February 6, 2006. Federal Aviation Administration 14 CFR Part 71 [Docket No. FAA–2005–23081; Airspace Docket No. 05–AAL–31] RIN 2120–AA66 Proposed Amendments to Colored Federal Airways; AK Affected ADs Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT. ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). AGENCY: (b) None. Applicability (c) This AD applies to Hamilton Sundstrand Model 14RF–19 propellers with propeller system actuator yoke arms, part number (P/N) 810436–2, which might be installed in actuator assemblies P/N 790119– 6. These propellers are installed on, but not limited to, SAAB 340 airplanes. Unsafe Condition (d) This AD results from propeller system actuator yoke arms breaking during flight. We are issuing this AD to prevent actuator yoke arms breaking during flight, which could cause high propeller vibration, requiring the pilot to feather the propeller, and could contribute to reduced controllability of the airplane. Compliance (e) You are responsible for having the actions required by this AD performed within 60 days after the effective date of this AD, unless the actions have already been done. Install Improved Actuator Yoke Arms (f) Using the Accomplishment Instructions of Hamilton Sundstrand Service Bulletin 14RF–19–61–113, Revision 1, dated September 2, 2003, replace all actuator yoke arms, P/N 810436–2 with improved actuator yoke arms, P/N 810436–3. (g) Mark newly installed actuators using the Accomplishment Instructions of Hamilton Sundstrand Service Bulletin 14RF– 19–61–113, Revision 1, dated September 2, 2003. (h) After the effective date of this AD, do not install any actuator yoke arms, P/N 810436–2, into any propeller assembly. Alternative Methods of Compliance (i) The Manager, Boston Certification Office, has the authority to approve alternative methods of compliance for this AD if requested using the procedures found in 14 CFR 39.19.

Rulemaking Distribution System, which describes the application 
procedure.

Background

    In October 2005, it was determined that continued operation of the 
Bishop, AK, NDB was in jeopardy at its current location because of 
riverbank erosion along the Yukon River to within 150 feet of the NDB 
site. This action is needed to reconfigure the airways to exclude the 
Bishop, AK, NDB.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to revoke colored Federal Airway B-12, 
modify three colored Federal Airways B-4, R-50 and G-7, and establish 
colored Federal Airway R-4 in Alaska. The FAA is proposing this action 
to remove all airways and routes off the Bishop NDB, AK, in preparation 
for the NDB's eventual decommissioning from the NAS.
    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 regulation: (1) Is not a ``significant 
regulatory action'' under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a 
``significant rule'' under Department of Transportation (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, when promulgated, will not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities 
under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
