Proposed Modification of Restricted Area 3404; Crane, IN, 59971-59973 [E7-20795]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 204 / Tuesday, October 23, 2007 / Proposed Rules fuel tank explosion and consequent loss of the airplane. The installation of the auxiliary hydraulic pump wire harness on Model DC–9–82 (MD–82) airplanes is similar to that on the affected Model MD–90–30 airplanes. Therefore, all of these models are subject to the same unsafe condition. Relevant Service Information We have reviewed Boeing Alert Service Bulletin MD90–29A021, dated May 15, 2007. The service bulletin describes procedures for replacing the wire harness of the auxiliary hydraulic pump with a new wire harness, and routing the new wire harness outside of the tire burst area. Accomplishing the actions specified in the service information is intended to adequately address the unsafe condition. FAA’s Determination and Requirements of the Proposed AD We have evaluated all pertinent information and identified an unsafe condition that is likely to exist or develop on other airplanes of this same type design. For this reason, we are proposing this AD, which would require accomplishing the actions specified in the service information described previously. rfrederick on PROD1PC67 with PROPOSALS Costs of Compliance There are about 110 airplanes of the affected design in the worldwide fleet. This proposed AD would affect about 16 airplanes of U.S. registry. The proposed actions would take about 7 work hours per airplane, at an average labor rate of $80 per work hour. Required parts would cost about $3,997 per airplane. Based on these figures, the estimated cost of the proposed AD for U.S. operators is $72,912, or $4,557 per airplane. Authority for This Rulemaking Title 49 of the United States Code specifies the FAA’s authority to issue rules on aviation safety. Subtitle I, Section 106, describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the Agency’s authority. We are issuing this rulemaking under the authority described in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart III, Section 44701, ‘‘General requirements.’’ Under that section, Congress charges the FAA with promoting safe flight of civil aircraft in air commerce by prescribing regulations for practices, methods, and procedures the Administrator finds necessary for safety in air commerce. This regulation is within the scope of that authority because it addresses an unsafe condition VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:55 Oct 22, 2007 Jkt 214001 that is likely to exist or develop on products identified in this rulemaking action. Regulatory Findings We have determined that this proposed AD would not have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. This proposed AD would not have a substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship between the national Government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. For the reasons discussed above, I certify that the proposed regulation: 1. Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; 2. Is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under the DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034, February 26, 1979); and 3. Will not have a significant economic impact, positive or negative, on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. We prepared a regulatory evaluation of the estimated costs to comply with this proposed AD and placed it in the AD docket. See the ADDRESSES section for a location to examine the regulatory evaluation. 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. The authority citation for part 39 continues to read as follows: Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701. § 39.13 [Amended] 2. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) amends § 39.13 by adding the following new airworthiness directive (AD): McDonnell Douglas: Docket No. FAA–2007– 0074; Directorate Identifier 2007–NM– 151–AD. 59971 Service Bulletin MD90–29A021, dated May 15, 2007. Unsafe Condition (d) This AD results from fuel system reviews conducted by the manufacturer, as well as reports of shorted wires in the right wheel well and evidence of arcing on the power cables of the auxiliary hydraulic pump. We are issuing this AD to prevent shorted wires or electrical arcing at the auxiliary hydraulic pump, which could result in a fire in the wheel well. We are also issuing this AD to reduce the potential of an ignition source adjacent to the fuel tanks, which, in combination with flammable fuel vapors, could result in a fuel tank explosion and consequent loss of the airplane. 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. Replacement (f) Within 18 months after the effective date of this AD, replace the wire harness of the auxiliary hydraulic pump with a new wire harness and route the new wire harness outside of the tire burst area, in accordance with the Accomplishment Instructions of Boeing Alert Service Bulletin MD90–29A021, dated May 15, 2007. Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs) (g)(1) The Manager, Los Angeles Aircraft Certification Office, FAA, has the authority to approve AMOCs for this AD, if requested in accordance with the procedures found in 14 CFR 39.19. (2) To request a different method of compliance or a different compliance time for this AD, follow the procedures in 14 CFR 39.19. Before using any approved AMOC on any airplane to which the AMOC applies, notify your appropriate principal inspector (PI) in the FAA Flight Standards District Office (FSDO), or lacking a PI, your local FSDO.

History On January 31, 2007, the U.S. Navy requested that the FAA take action to modify R–3404. The requested action is needed to provide additional airspace to protect nonparticipating aircraft from blast fragments generated during the disposal of a variety of types of ordnance at the Naval Support Activity Crane’s (NSA Crane) Demolition Range. The Proposal At the request of the U.S. Navy, the FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 73 to modify R–3404. The modification would better center the restricted area over NSA Crane’s blast area, enlarge the restricted area from a 1/2–nm radius to a 1–nm radius, increase the ceiling from 2,500 feet MSL to 4,100 feet MSL, and change the name of the using agency from ‘‘Commanding Officer, Naval Ammunition Depot, PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 Crane, IN’’ to ‘‘U.S. Navy, Crane Division, Naval Surface Warfare Center tenant of NSA Crane.’’ Section 73.34 of Title 14 CFR part 73 was republished in FAA Order 7400.8N, effective February 16, 2007. 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. The FAA’s authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is found in Title 49 of the United States Code. Subtitle I, Section 106 describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency’s authority. This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of the airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it would modify R–3404, Crane, IN., for the protection of nonparticipating aircraft during the disposal of a variety of types of ordnance.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background A. Salt 1. Salt in the Human Diet Salt (sodium chloride) is an essential part of the diet. Both the sodium and chloride ions are required, for example, to maintain extracellular volume and serum osmolality (Ref. 1). Salt is found naturally in foods such as milk and shellfish (Ref. 1). Salt also is added intentionally as a food ingredient for multiple technical effects in foods, e.g., as a seasoning agent and flavor enhancer, a preservative and curing agent, a formulating and processing aid, and a dough conditioner (47 FR 26590, June 18, 1982 (the 1982 policy notice)). The Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2005 (Dietary Guidelines) (Ref. 2), a joint publication of the Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), forms the basis for the Federal Government’s nutrition programs and policies. Chapter 8 of the Dietary Guidelines reports that, on average, the natural salt content of food accounts for only about 10 percent of total intake, while discretionary salt use (i.e., salt added at the table or while cooking) provides another 5 to 10 percent of total intake. Chapter 8 of the Dietary Guidelines also reports that approximately 75 percent of total salt intake is derived from salt added to processed food by manufacturers. 2. Adverse Health Effects of Salt Excessive sodium has been cited by the scientific community as a contributory factor in the development of hypertension and cardiovascular disease (47 FR 26580). In general, there is a dose-dependent relationship between sodium intake and blood pressure that has been observed to occur throughout the range of levels of sodium intake (Ref. 1). Blood pressures among individuals in certain populations (e.g., persons with hypertension, diabetes, kidney disease, older persons, and African Americans) are more responsive to dietary sodium than blood pressures among the general population (Ref. 1). The Dietary Guidelines recommend that the general population consume no more than 2,300 milligrams/day (mg/d) and that persons with hypertension, blacks, and middle-aged and older E:\FR\FM\23OCP1.SGM 23OCP1

History

    On January 31, 2007, the U.S. Navy requested that the FAA take 
action to modify R-3404. The requested action is needed to provide 
additional airspace to protect nonparticipating aircraft from blast 
fragments generated during the disposal of a variety of types of 
ordnance at the Naval Support Activity Crane's (NSA Crane) Demolition 
Range.

The Proposal

    At the request of the U.S. Navy, the FAA is proposing an amendment 
to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 73 to modify R-
3404. The modification would better center the restricted area over NSA 
Crane's blast area, enlarge the restricted area from a 1/2-nm radius to 
a 1-nm radius, increase the ceiling from 2,500 feet MSL to 4,100 feet 
MSL, and change the name of the using agency from ``Commanding Officer, 
Naval Ammunition Depot, Crane, IN'' to ``U.S. Navy, Crane Division, 
Naval Surface Warfare Center tenant of NSA Crane.''
    Section 73.34 of Title 14 CFR part 73 was republished in FAA Order 
7400.8N, effective February 16, 2007.
    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.
    The FAA's authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is 
found in Title 49 of the United States Code. Subtitle I, Section 106 
describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, 
Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency's 
authority.
    This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in 
Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, the 
FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of the 
airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient 
use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority 
as it would modify R-3404, Crane, IN., for the protection of 
nonparticipating aircraft during the disposal of a variety of types of 
ordnance.

Environmental Review

    This proposal will be subjected to an environmental analysis in 
accordance with FAA Order 1050.1E, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies 
and Procedures,'' prior to any FAA final regulatory action.
