The initial rate, points, and fullyindexed rate are used to compute APRs for the one-year and five-year variablerate products: One-year variable-rate—4.91 Five-year variable-rate—5.16 Data for the interpolated two-year and three-year variable-rate mortgages are calculated as weighted averages of the figures for the one- and five-year variable-rates, which are used in conjunction with the yields on the twoand three-year Treasuries as follows: Two-year variable-rate: Initial rate—[3×(5.18–2.07)+1×(5.57– 3.13)]/4+2.43=5.37 Fees & Points—[3×.7+1×.6]/4=.7 Margin—[3×2.75+1×2.75]/4=2.75 Fully-indexed rate—2.07+2.75=4.82 Three-year variable-rate: Initial rate—[2×(5.18–2.07)+2×(5.57– 3.13)]/4+2.67=5.45 Fees & Points—[2×.7+2×.6]/4=.7 Margin—[2×2.75+2×2.75]/4=2.75 Fully-indexed rate—2.07+2.75=4.82 The foregoing initial rates, points, margins, and fully-indexed rates are used to calculate APRs for the two- and three-year variable-rate products: Two-year variable-rate—4.97 Three-year variable-rate—5.03 Data for the seven-year and ten-year variable-rate products are estimated VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:58 Oct 23, 2008 Jkt 217001 using the survey data for the five-year variable-rate product and yields on the seven- and ten-year Treasuries: Seven-year variable-rate: Initial rate—(5.57–3.13)+3.44=5.88 Fees & Points—=.6 Margin—=2.75 Fully-indexed rate—2.07+2.75=4.82 Ten-year variable-rate: Initial rate—(5.57–3.13)+3.87=6.31 Fees & Points—=.6 Margin—=2.75 Fully-indexed rate—2.07+2.75=4.82 The foregoing initial rates, points, margins, and fully-indexed rates are used to calculate APRs for the sevenand ten-year variable-rate products: Seven-year variable-rate—5.40 Ten-year variable-rate—5.85 The initial rate and points of the variable-rate mortgages calculated above are used to estimate APRs for fixed-rate products with terms to maturity of ten years or less: One-year fixed: Initial rate—5.18 Fees & Points—.7 APR—6.49 Two-year fixed: Initial rate—5.37 Fees & Points—.7 APR—6.06 Three-year fixed: Initial rate—5.45 Fees & Points—.7 APR—5.92 Five-year fixed: Initial rate—5.57 Fees & Points—.6 APR—5.82 Seven-year fixed: Initial rate—5.88 Fees & Points—.6 APR—6.06 Ten-year fixed: Initial rate—6.31 Fees & Points—.6 APR—6.44 [FR Doc.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The FAA amends the airworthiness standards for issuance of original and amended type certificates for airplane propellers. The previous propeller requirements did not adequately address the technological advances of the past twenty years. The new standards address these advances in technology and harmonize FAA and European Aviation Safety Agency propeller certification requirements, thereby simplifying airworthiness approvals for imports and exports. DATES: These amendments become effective December 23, 2008. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For questions concerning this final rule contact Jay Turnberg, Engine and Propeller Directorate Standards Staff, ANE–110, Federal Aviation Administration, 12 New England Executive Park, Burlington, Massachusetts 01803–5299; telephone (781) 238–7116; facsimile (781) 238– 7199, e-mail: jay.turnberg@faa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Authority for This Rulemaking The FAA’s authority to issue rules on 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. PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 63339 This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart III, section 44701, ’’General requirements.’’ Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations for practices, methods, and procedures the Administrator finds necessary for safety in air commerce, including minimum safety standards for aircraft propellers. This final rule is within the scope of that authority because it updates existing regulations for airplane propellers. Background Over the past decade, advances in technology have required repeated application of special conditions or special tests for many propeller certification programs. In addition, the need to demonstrate compliance with both FAA and European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) requirements placed additional burdens on propeller manufacturers who required foreign certification. Therefore, we concluded that part 35 should be substantially revised. This action harmonizes FAA part 35 propeller certification requirements with most of EASA’s Certification Specifications for Propellers (CS–P). Summary of the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking On April 11, 2007 (72 FR 18136), the FAA proposed changes to propeller requirements in Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) parts 23, 25, 33, and 35. We proposed to amend the airworthiness standards for issuance of original and amended type certificates for aircraft propellers to address advances in technology and harmonize FAA requirements with EASA’s CS–P. The comment period closed on June 11, 2007. We reopened the comment period on June 20, 2007 (72 FR 33925) for an additional 45 days in response to requests from propeller manufacturers for more time to comment. The comment period closed again on August 6, 2007. Summary of the Final Rule This final rule on propeller requirements contains no significant changes from the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) published on April 11, 2007. We made minor changes to several sections to ensure clarity and more consistency with EASA regulations in response to the comments we received. This rule harmonizes FAA and EASA regulations for most of part 35, updates §§ 23.907 and 25.907 and links part 35 to §§ 23.905, 25.901, 25.905, and 33.19. E:\FR\FM\24OCR1.SGM 24OCR1
