(ii) If a manufacturing lot number from 3375 through 5551 inclusive is not found, do a general visual inspection of the shear-pin restraints for discrepancies (i.e., corrosion, security of pin retainer/label, overall condition, and lack of play). If any discrepancy is found, before further flight, replace the shear-pin restraint with a new restraint. Note 1: For the purposes of this AD, a general visual inspection is: ‘‘A visual examination of an interior or exterior area, installation, or assembly to detect obvious damage, failure, or irregularity. This level of inspection is made from within touching distance unless otherwise specified. A mirror may be necessary to ensure visual access to all surfaces in the inspection area. This level of inspection is made under normally available lighting conditions such as daylight, hangar lighting, flashlight, or droplight and may require removal or opening of access panels or doors. Stands, ladders, or platforms may be required to gain proximity to the area being checked.’’ Parts Installation (h) As of the effective date of this AD, no Goodrich evacuation system with a part number and serial number identified in paragraph (c)(1) or (c)(2) of this AD may be installed on any airplane, unless the shearpin restraints have been replaced with new restraints in accordance with paragraph (g)(1) of this AD. (i) As of the effective date of this AD, no Goodrich evacuation system with a part number and serial number identified in paragraphs (c)(3) through (c)(27) of this AD may be installed on any airplane, unless the shear-pin restraints have been inspected and found acceptable in accordance with paragraph (g)(2) of this AD.

The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to modify Class D airspace at Castle Airport, Atwater, CA. Local communities and aviation concerns met with the FAA on April 26, 2007, at Atwater, CA, to present alternative airspace designs for the existing Class D airspace at Atwater, CA, Castle Airport. The various airspace alternatives presented were designed to accommodate IFR and Visual Flight Rules (VFR) operations in and out of Merced Airport located 6 miles to the south. The FAA, local communities, and aviation concerns agreed on an alternative that would reduce the ceiling of the Class D airspace, modify the southern border, and add an extension on the north side of the Class D for the safety of aircraft executing SIAP’s and other IFR operations at Castle Airport. Class D airspace will be effective during specified dates and times established in advance by a Notice to Airmen. The effective date and time will, thereafter, be published in the Airport/Facility Directory. Class D airspace designations for airspace areas extending upward from the surface of the earth are published in Paragraph 5000 of FAA Order 7400.9P, dated September 1, 2006, and effective September 15, 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 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. The Proposed Amendment DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY In consideration of the foregoing, the Federal Aviation Administration proposes to amend 14 CFR part 71 as follows: Internal Revenue Service [REG–143601–06] PART 71—DESIGNATION OF CLASS A, B, C, D, AND E AIRSPACE AREAS; AIR TRAFFIC SERVICE ROUTES; AND REPORTING POINTS 1.

the FAA on April 26, 2007, at Atwater, CA, to present alternative

aircraft executing SIAP's and other IFR operations at Castle Airport. 
Class D airspace will be effective during specified dates and times 
established in advance by a Notice to Airmen. The effective date and

    Class D airspace designations for airspace areas extending upward

    The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves

Therefore, this proposed regulation; (1) Is not a ``significant
