We prepared a regulatory evaluation of the estimated costs to comply with this proposed AD and placed it in the AD docket. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Safety. The Proposed Amendment Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the FAA proposes to amend 14 CFR part 39 as follows: PART 39—AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES 1.

Applicability (c) This AD applies to SOCATA TBM 700 airplanes, all serial numbers, certificated in any category. jlentini on PROD1PC65 with PROPOSAL Reason (d) The mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) states this Airworthiness Directive (AD) was prompted by reports of loose rivets on frames C18 BIS and C19, which, if not corrected, could result in a reduced structural integrity of the tail area. Actions and Compliance (e) Unless already done, within the next 100 hours time-in-service (TIS) or 12 months, whichever occurs later after the effective date of this AD, and thereafter at intervals not to exceed 100 hours TIS, accomplish a detailed inspection of the area and apply corrective actions as necessary by doing all the applicable actions in accordance with the accomplishment instructions of the EADS SOCATA TBM Aircraft Mandatory Service Bulletin SB 70–129, ATA No. 53, dated June 2005.

The Proposal

    The FAA is considering an amendment to Part 71 of the Federal 
Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) to establish Class D airspace at 
Griffiss AFB, Rome, NY. The protection of an activated Control Tower 
makes this action necessary. That airspace would extend from the 
surface to and including 3,200 feet MSL within a 4.5 mile radius of the 
Griffiss Airfield, Rome, NY, and within 2 miles each side of bearing 
135[deg]/315[deg] from a point at Lat 43[deg]14.03[min] N, Long 
75[deg]24.42[min] W, extending from the 4.5 mile radius zone, to a 
point 6 miles NW and 6 miles SE of the airport. The class D airspace 
area would be effective during the specific dates and times established 
in advance by a notice to airmen. The effective date and time would 
thereafter be continuously published in the Airport/Facility Directory. 
Class D airspace designations for airspace areas extending upward from 
the surface to and including 3,200 feet MSL are published in Paragraph 
5000 of FAA Order 7400.9P, dated September 1, 2006, and effective 
September 16, 2006, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. 
The Class D airspace designation 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 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 would only affect air traffic procedures 
and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed rule would not 
have significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
