Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Wheatland, WY, 53201-53202 [E7-18332]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 180 / Tuesday, September 18, 2007 / Proposed Rules conditions would apply to that model as well under the provisions of § 21.101(a)(1). Conclusion This action affects only certain novel or unusual design features on Adam Aircraft Industries Model A700 airplanes. It is not a rule of general applicability, and it affects only the applicant who applied to the FAA for approval of these features on the airplane. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 23 Aircraft, Aviation safety, Signs and symbols. Citation The authority citation for these proposed special conditions is as follows: rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with PROPOSALS Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113 and 44701; 14 CFR 21.16 and 21.17; and 14 CFR 11.38 and 11.19. The Proposed Special Conditions Accordingly, pursuant to the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the following proposed special conditions are issued as part of the type certification basis for the Adam Aircraft Industries Model A700. 1. SC 23.561(c): Each airplane with retractable landing gear and external fuel tank system(s) located beneath the fuselage must be designed to protect each occupant in a landing— 1. With the wheels retracted; 2. With descent velocity of 12.25 feet per second UNLESS mitigating design features are incorporated that address: i. Independent load path ii. Fuel management iii. Location/Geometry iv. Other safety enhancing design features as proposed by the applicant If adequate mitigation is demonstrated for all the above design features, the FAA will reduce the descent velocity to no less than 5 feet per second. and 3. By defining, based on a rational analysis, supported by tests: i. A downward ultimate inertia force; and ii. A coefficient of friction of 0.5, or a rational analysis for a coefficient of friction, at the ground. Compliance with SC 23.561(c)(2) will be demonstrated by dynamic drop test. 2. SC 23.721: The following general requirements for the landing gear apply: 1. The landing-gear system must be designed so that if it fails due to overloads during takeoff and landing (assuming the overloads to act in the upward and aft directions), the failure mode is not likely to cause the spillage VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:58 Sep 17, 2007 Jkt 211001 of enough fuel from any part of the external fuel tank system(s) located beneath the fuselage to constitute a fire hazard. 2. The airplane must be designed so that, with the airplane under control, it can be landed on a paved runway with any one or more landing-gear legs not extended without sustaining a structural component failure that is likely to cause the spillage of enough fuel to constitute a fire hazard. 3. Compliance with the provisions of this section may be shown by analysis or tests, or both. 3. SC 23.994: Fuel system components in external fuel tank system(s) located beneath the fuselage must be protected from damage which could result in spillage of enough fuel to constitute a fire hazard as a result of a wheels-up landing on a paved runway. 4. SC 23.XXX: Fuel tanks within and below the fuselage contour must be installed in accordance with the requirements prescribed in Sec. 23.967. External fuel tank system(s) located beneath the fuselage must have the following design mitigations: 1. The external fuel tank system(s) must be in a protected position so that exposure of the tank to scraping action, or impact, with the ground is unlikely during a gear-up landing of the most critical landing gear or landing gears, when landing on a paved runway. 2. The external fuel tank system(s) must be protected by dedicated protective structure, and the protective structure load paths must be independent of the fuel system during a gear-up landing of the most critical landing gear or landing gears, when landing on a paved runway. 3. The hazard to the external fuel tank system(s) that results from impact by landing gear tire fragments or other likely debris must be minimized. 4. The fuel management of the external fuel tank system(s) must be such that fuel in the external fuel tank system(s) is to be emptied prior to fuel in the main tanks.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by establishing Class E airspace at 
Wheatland, WY. Additional controlled airspace is necessary to 
accommodate aircraft using the new RNAV (GPS) SIAP at Wheatland Phifer 
Airfield. This action would enhance the safety and management of 
aircraft operations at Phifer Airfield, Wheatland, WY.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 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 E 
airspace designation listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in this 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, would not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act.
