Should DynCorp International apply at a later date for a change to the STC to include another model incorporating the same novel or unusual design feature, the special condition would apply to that STC modification as well under the provisions of § 21.101. Conclusion This action affects only certain novel or unusual design features associated with this STC project. 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 helicopter. The substance of this special condition has been subjected to a 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, the FAA has determined that prior public notice and comment are unnecessary, and good cause exists for adopting this special condition 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.

VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:52 Nov 15, 2007 Jkt 214001 The Special Condition Accordingly, pursuant to the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the following special condition is issued as part of the supplemental type certification basis for STC Project ST2902RC–R, installation of PT6–67D on Global Helicopter Technology, Inc. (GHTI), Model UH–1H, Restricted Category Helicopters, type certificated under TC R00002RC. Protection for Electrical and Electronic Systems From High Intensity Radiated Fields. 1. Each system that performs critical control functions must be designed and installed to ensure that the operation and operational capabilities of these critical control functions are not adversely affected when the helicopter is exposed to high intensity radiated fields external to the helicopter. 2. For the purpose of this special condition, critical control functions are defined as those functions, whose failure would contribute to, or cause, an unsafe condition that would prevent the continued safe flight and landing of the aircraft.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On October 24, 2007, the FAA issued AD 2007–22–10, amendment 39–15246 (72 FR 61796, November 1, 2007), for all Airbus Model A330–200, A330–300, A340–200, A340–300, A340–500, and A340–600 series airplanes. The AD requires repetitive detailed visual inspections for cracking of the LH (left hand) and RH (right hand) wing MLG (main landing gear) rib 6 aft bearing lugs, and repair or replacement of the MLG rib 6 fitting, if necessary. As published, Table 2 of the AD states that certain repetitive inspection intervals apply to Model ‘‘A300–300 series airplanes, except WV27.’’ That sentence contains a typographical error and, instead, should state that those repetitive inspection intervals apply to Model ‘‘A340–300 series airplanes, except WV27.’’ No other part of the regulatory information has been changed; therefore, the final rule is not republished in the Federal Register.

ACTION: Final rule. ebenthall on PRODPC61 with RULES AGENCY: SUMMARY: This rule amends Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) for operations at certain airports. These regulatory actions are needed because of changes in the National Airspace System, such as the commissioning of new navigational facilities, adding of new obstacles, or changing air traffic requirements. These changes are designed to provide safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace and to promote safe flight operations under instrument flight rules at the affected airports. DATES: This rule is effective November 16, 2007. The compliance date for each SIAP is specified in the amendatory provisions. The incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in the regulations is approved by the Director of the Federal Register as of November 16, 2007. ADDRESSES: Availability of matter incorporated by reference in the amendment is as follows: For Examination— 1.

Box 25082 Oklahoma City, OK 73125) telephone: (405) 954–4164. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This rule amends Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 97 (14 CFR part 97) by amending the referenced SIAPs. The complete regulatory description of each SIAP is listed on the appropriate FAA Form 8260, as modified by the National Flight Data Center (FDC)/Permanent Notice to Airmen (P–NOTAM), and is incorporated by reference in the amendment under 5 U.S.C. 552(a), 1 CFR part 51, and § 97.20 of Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations. The large number of SIAPs, their complex nature, and the need for a special format make their verbatim publication in the Federal Register expensive and impractical. Further, airmen do not use the regulatory text of PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 the SIAPs, but refer to their graphic depiction on charts printed by publishers of aeronautical materials. Thus, the advantages of incorporation by reference are realized and publication of the complete description of each SIAP contained in FAA form documents is unnecessary. This amendment provides the affected CFR sections and specifies the types of SIAP and the corresponding effective dates. This amendment also identifies the airport and its location, the procedure and the amendment number. The Rule This amendment to 14 CFR part 97 is effective upon publication of each separate SIAP as amended in the transmittal. For safety and timeliness of change considerations, this amendment incorporates only specific changes contained for each SIAP as modified by FDC/P–NOTAMs. The SIAPs, as modified by FDC P– NOTAM, and contained in this amendment are based on the criteria contained in the U.S. Standard for Terminal Instrument Procedures (TERPS). In developing these changes to SIAPs, the TERPS criteria were applied only to specific conditions existing at the affected airports. All SIAP amendments in this rule have been previously issued by the FAA in a FDC NOTAM as an emergency action of immediate flight safety relating directly to published aeronautical charts. The circumstances which created the need for all these SIAP amendments requires making them effective in less than 30 days. Because of the close and immediate relationship between these SIAPs and safety in air commerce, I find that notice and public procedure before adopting these SIAPs are impracticable and contrary to the public interest and, where applicable, that good cause exists for making these SIAPs effective in less than 30 days. Conclusion The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which E:\FR\FM\16NOR1.SGM 16NOR1

ACTION: Final rule; correction.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The FAA is correcting a typographical error in an existing 
airworthiness directive (AD) that was published in the Federal Register 
on November 1, 2007 (72 FR 61796). The error resulted in an error in an 
airplane series number identified in Table 2 of the AD. This AD applies 
to all Airbus Model A330-200, A330-300, A340-200, A340-300, A340-500, 
and A340-600 series airplanes. This AD requires repetitive detailed 
visual inspections for cracking of the LH (left hand) and RH (right 
hand) wing MLG (main landing gear) rib 6 aft bearing lugs, and repair 
or replacement of the MLG rib 6 fitting, if necessary.

DATES: Effective November 16, 2007.

ADDRESSES: You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at http://
www.regulations.gov; or in person at the Docket Operations office 
between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal 
holidays. The AD docket contains this AD, the regulatory evaluation, 
any comments received, and other information. The street address for

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On October 24, 2007, the FAA issued AD 2007-
22-10, amendment 39-15246 (72 FR 61796, November 1, 2007), for all 
Airbus Model A330-200, A330-300, A340-200, A340-300, A340-500, and 
A340-600 series airplanes. The AD requires repetitive detailed visual 
inspections for cracking of the LH (left hand) and RH (right hand) wing 
MLG (main landing gear) rib 6 aft bearing lugs, and repair or 
replacement of the MLG rib 6 fitting, if necessary.
    As published, Table 2 of the AD states that certain repetitive 
inspection intervals apply to Model ``A300-300 series airplanes, except 
WV27.'' That sentence contains a typographical error and, instead, 
should state that those repetitive inspection intervals apply to Model 
``A340-300 series airplanes, except WV27.''
    No other part of the regulatory information has been changed; 
therefore, the final rule is not republished in the Federal Register.
    The effective date of this AD remains November 16, 2007.
