Reason (e) The mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) states: To prevent damage to the rear spar due to working and failing rivets between the rear spar and the inboard rib * * * The MCAI requires inspecting the inboard end of the rear spar for security of the blind rivets, inspecting the radii of the rear spar upper and lower flanges for cracking, inspecting the aft flange of the inboard rib for cracking, replacing the rear spar if cracks are found in any of the inspections, and modifying the rear spar by replacing the blind rivets with bolts or rivets. Actions and Compliance (f) Unless already done, do the following actions: (1) Within 50 hours time-in-service (TIS) after the effective date of this AD, and thereafter at intervals not to exceed 150 hours TIS until the blind rivets have been replaced by bolts or rivets as required in paragraph (f)(3) of this AD, inspect the inboard end of the rear spar for security of the blind rivets, which attach the fuselage attach fitting to the rear spar and inboard rib; inspect the radii of the rear spar upper and lower flanges for cracking; and inspect the aft flange of the inboard rib for cracking following Pacific Aerospace Limited Mandatory Service Bulletin PACSB/XL/022 dated February 14, 2007. (2) Before further flight, after any inspection where cracking is found, repair the aft flange of the inboard rib and/or replace the rear spar following Pacific Aerospace Limited Mandatory Service Bulletin PACSB/XL/022 dated February 14, 2007. (3) Within 12 months or 300 hours TIS after the effective date of this AD, whichever occurs first, replace the blind rivets (part number NAS1738E–6–6) that join the rear spar and the aft end of the inboard rib with bolts or rivets following Pacific Aerospace Limited Mandatory Service Bulletin PACSB/ XL/022, dated February 14, 2007. (4) At intervals not to exceed 12 months or 300 hours TIS after the effective date of this AD, whichever occurs first, after the modification required in paragraph (f)(3) of this AD, repetitively inspect the main wing aft attachment area following Pacific Aerospace Limited Mandatory Service Bulletin PACSB/XL/022, dated February 14, 2007. If any cracks are found, prior to further flight, repair the main wing aft attachment area. rmajette on PROD1PC64 with PROPOSALS FAA AD Differences Note: This AD differs from the MCAI and/ or service information as follows: No differences.

History On June 16, 2006, the FAA published an NPRM in the Federal Register 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) (71 FR 34854). Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. No comments were received objecting to the proposal. On January 18, 2007, the FAA published in the Federal Register a final rule (72 FR 2182) taking action on all of the above proposed airway establishments, modifications and revocations except V–65 and V–133. Action on V–65 was deferred because the Sandusky VOR was out of service. Establishment of V–65 is being taken under separate rulemaking. Action on V–133 was deferred because the original routing proposed in the NPRM did not pass flight check. This SNPRM proposes an alternative routing for V–133 that has already passed flight check. VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:14 Jun 14, 2007 Jkt 211001 The Proposal The FAA is proposing to amend Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to modify V–133 over the East Central United States. This action is 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 Air Route Traffic Control Centers’ areas of responsibility. VOR Federal Airways are published in paragraph 6010 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 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. Environmental Review The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environment Policy Act in accordance with 311a and 311b., FAA Order 1050.1E, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures’’. This airspace action is not expected to cause any potentially significant environment impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of environmental assessment.

History

    On June 16, 2006, the FAA published an NPRM in the Federal Register 
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) (71 FR 34854). Interested parties 
were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting 
written comments on the proposal. No comments were received objecting 
to the proposal.
    On January 18, 2007, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
final rule (72 FR 2182) taking action on all of the above proposed 
airway establishments, modifications and revocations except V-65 and V-
133. Action on V-65 was deferred because the Sandusky VOR was out of 
service. Establishment of V-65 is being taken under separate 
rulemaking. Action on V-133 was deferred because the original routing 
proposed in the NPRM did not pass flight check. This SNPRM proposes an 
alternative routing for V-133 that has already passed flight check.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing to amend Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations 
(14 CFR) part 71 to modify V-133 over the East Central United States. 
This action is 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 Air Route 
Traffic Control Centers' areas of responsibility.
    VOR Federal Airways are published in paragraph 6010 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 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.

Environmental Review

    The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical 
exclusion under the National Environment Policy Act in accordance with 
311a and 311b., FAA Order 1050.1E, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies 
and Procedures''. This airspace action is not expected to cause any 
potentially significant environment impacts, and no extraordinary 
circumstances exist that warrant preparation of environmental 
assessment.
