Unsafe Condition (d) This AD results from CFM International adding subsequently certified engine models, CFM56–5B3/ P1, CFM56–5B3/2P1, CFM56–5B4/P1, and CFM56–5B4/2P1, to the list of engines that could have affected harnesses installed, and increasing the population of affected EGT harnesses. We are issuing this AD to prevent unexpected deterioration of critical rotating engine parts due to higher than desired engine operating EGTs. rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with PROPOSAL_1 Compliance (e) You are responsible for having the actions required by this AD performed within the compliance times specified unless the actions have already been done. (f) If an EGT harness or EGT coupling has a serial number that is followed by the letter ‘‘W’’, no further action is required for that part. (g) For affected EGT harnesses and EGT couplings identified using paragraph (c) of this AD, with fewer than 3,000 engine flight hours-sinceinstallation, do the following: (1) Replace affected EGT harnesses and EGT couplings, not being trend monitored, with serviceable parts within 500 flight hours after the effective date of this AD; or (2) After the effective date of this AD: (i) Review the smooth data EGT trend via the System for Analysis of Gas Turbine Engines (SAGE), or equivalent, since the affected components were first installed on the current engine. (ii) Continue this trend monitoring for the affected EGT harnesses and EGT couplings to ensure that the system does not show a minimum of 30 °C downward (i.e. cooler) indication, or more, without a corresponding change in other associated engine parameters such as N1 (LPT rotor speed), N2 (HPT rotor speed), and fuel flow. (iii) Provided that there is sufficient, actual EGT margin to do so, replace the EGT harnesses and EGT couplings within 100 flight hours after they have been determined to be defective. (iv) Continue to monitor the EGT indications for 3,000 engine flight hours since the first installation on the current engine. Terminating Action (h) Any of the following three conditions is terminating action for the trend monitoring requirements specified in paragraphs (g)(2)(i) through (g)(2)(iv) of this AD: VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:32 Jun 15, 2006 Jkt 208001 (1) Replacing an EGT harness and EGT coupling with a serviceable part, or (2) Replacing an EGT harness and EGT coupling with an EGT harness and EGT coupling that has a letter ‘‘W’’ following the SN, or (3) Accumulating 3,000 engine flight hours on an EGT harness and EGT coupling.

Background In April of 1996, the FAA Administrator announced that the FAA would begin a comprehensive review and redesign of the United States airspace. This endeavor became known as the National Airspace Redesign (NAR) project. The goal of NAR is to increase system flexibility, predictability, and access; maintain and improve safety; improve efficiency; reduce delays; and support the evolution of emerging technologies. The MASE project is the culmination of the NAR process with regard to aircraft operations in the Cleveland and Detroit terminal areas as well as in the high altitude, en route airspace environment. The purpose of MASE is to develop and implement new en route and terminal airspace procedures that would increase efficiency and enhance safety of aircraft movements in the airspace overlying and beyond the Cleveland and Detroit terminal areas. Specifically, the MASE project consists of changes to routes, fixes, altitudes, and holding patterns, as well as the development of new procedures and routes. Overall, MASE focuses on developing and implementing improvements in the air navigation structure and operating methods to allow more flexible and efficient VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:32 Jun 15, 2006 Jkt 208001 management of aircraft operations over the East Central United States. The Proposal The FAA is proposing to amend Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to establish 16 VOR Federal Airways (V–65, V–176, V–383, V–396, V–406, V–410, V–414, V–416, V–418, V–426, V–467, V–486, V–542, V–584, V–586, and V–609); modify 13 VOR Federal Airways (V–14, V–26, V–40, V– 72, V–75, V–90, V–96, V–103, V–116, V–133, V–297, V–435, and V–526); and revoke one VOR Federal Airway (V–42) over the East Central United States within the airspace assigned to the Chicago, Cleveland, and Indianapolis ARTCCs. These actions are proposed as part of MASE to enhance safety and to facilitate the more flexible and efficient use of the navigable airspace. Further, this action would enhance the management of aircraft operations within the Chicago, Cleveland, and Indianapolis ARTCCs’ areas of responsibility. VOR Federal Airways are published in paragraph 6010 of FAA Order 7400.9N, dated September 1, 2005, and effective September 15, 2005, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The VOR Federal Airways listed in this document would be published subsequently in the 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 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. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air). The Proposed Amendment In consideration of the foregoing, the Federal Aviation Administration proposes to amend 14 CFR part 71 as follows: PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 PART 71—DESIGNATION OF CLASS A, B, C, D, AND E AIRSPACE AREAS; AIR TRAFFIC SERVICE ROUTES; AND REPORTING POINTS 1.

well as in the high altitude, en route airspace environment. The 
purpose of MASE is to develop and implement new en route and terminal 
airspace procedures that would increase efficiency and enhance safety 
of aircraft movements in the airspace overlying and beyond the 
Cleveland and Detroit terminal areas. Specifically, the MASE project 
consists of changes to routes, fixes, altitudes, and holding patterns, 
as well as the development of new procedures and routes. Overall, MASE 
focuses on developing and implementing improvements in the air 
navigation structure and operating methods to allow more flexible and 
efficient management of aircraft operations over the East Central 
United States.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing to amend Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations 
(14 CFR) part 71 to establish 16 VOR Federal Airways (V-65, V-176, V-
383, V-396, V-406, V-410, V-414, V-416, V-418, V-426, V-467, V-486, V-
542, V-584, V-586, and V-609); modify 13 VOR Federal Airways (V-14, V-
26, V-40, V-72, V-75, V-90, V-96, V-103, V-116, V-133, V-297, V-435, 
and V-526); and revoke one VOR Federal Airway (V-42) over the East 
Central United States within the airspace assigned to the Chicago, 
Cleveland, and Indianapolis ARTCCs. These actions are proposed as part 
of MASE to enhance safety and to facilitate the more flexible and 
efficient use of the navigable airspace. Further, this action would 
enhance the management of aircraft operations within the Chicago, 
Cleveland, and Indianapolis ARTCCs' areas of responsibility.
    VOR Federal Airways are published in paragraph 6010 of FAA Order 
7400.9N, dated September 1, 2005, and effective September 15, 2005, 
which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The VOR Federal 
Airways listed in this document would be published subsequently in the 
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 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.
