When using this test to show compliance with the HIRF requirements, no credit is given for signal attenuation due to installation. A preliminary hazard analysis must be performed by the applicant, for approval by the FAA, to identify either electrical or electronic systems that perform critical functions. The term ‘‘critical’’ means those functions whose failure would contribute to, or cause, a failure condition that would prevent the continued safe flight and landing of the airplane. The systems identified by the hazard analysis that perform critical functions are candidates for the application of HIRF requirements. A system may perform both critical and non-critical functions. Primary electronic flight display systems, and their associated components, perform critical functions such as attitude, altitude, and airspeed indication. The HIRF requirements apply only to critical functions. Compliance with HIRF requirements may be demonstrated by tests, analysis, models, similarity with existing systems, or any combination of these. VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:25 Nov 01, 2007 Jkt 214001 Service experience alone is not acceptable since normal flight operations may not include an exposure to the HIRF environment. Reliance on a system with similar design features for redundancy as a means of protection against the effects of external HIRF is generally insufficient since all elements of a redundant system are likely to be exposed to the fields concurrently. Applicability As discussed above, these special conditions are applicable to the Model 208B, Garmin G1000 project. Should Cessna Aircraft Company apply at a later date for an amended or supplemental type certificate to modify any other model on the same type certificate to incorporate the same novel or unusual design feature, the special conditions would apply to that model as well under the provisions of § 21.101. Conclusion This action affects only certain novel or unusual design features on one model of airplane. It is not a rule of general applicability and affects only the applicant who applied to the FAA for approval of these features on the airplane. The substance of these special conditions has been subjected to the notice and comment period in several prior instances and has been derived without substantive change from those previously issued. It is unlikely that prior public comment would result in a significant change from the substance contained herein. For this reason, and because a delay would significantly affect the certification of the airplane, which is imminent, the FAA has determined that prior public notice and comment are unnecessary and impracticable, and good cause exists for adopting these special conditions upon issuance. The FAA is requesting comments to allow interested persons to submit views that may not have been submitted in response to the prior opportunities for comment described above.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

History

    On Wednesday, August 15, 2007, the FAA proposed to amend part 71 of 
the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) to establish Class D 
airspace at Independence Municipal Airport, KS (72 FR 45699). The 
proposal was to establish a Class D airspace area to provide controlled 
airspace for flight operations due to the establishment of an air 
traffic control tower. Interested parties were invited to participate 
in this rulemaking proceeding by submitting written comments on the 
proposal to the FAA. No comments objecting to the proposal were 
received.

The Rule

    This notice amends part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 
CFR part 71) by establishing a Class D airspace area extending upward 
from the surface to an including 3,300 feet above sea level within a 
4.6-mile radius of Independence Municipal Airport, KS. The 
establishment of an air traffic control tower has made this action 
necessary. The intended effect of this action is to provide controlled 
airspace for flight operations at Independence Municipal Airport, KS. 
The area will be depicted on appropriate aeronautical charts.
    Class D airspace areas extending upward from the surface of the 
earth are published in Paragraph 5000 of FAA Order 7400.9R, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, signed August 15, 2007, and 
effective September 15, 2007, which is incorporated by reference in 14 
CFR 71.1. of the same Order. The Class D airspace designation listed in 
this document will be published subsequently in the Order.
    The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an 
established body of technical regulations for which frequently and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. 
Therefore, this regulation--(1) is not a ``significantly 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 to minimal. Since this is a routine matter 
than will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this 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.
    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 
since it contains flight operations at Independence Municipal Airport, 
KS.
