Proposed Establishment of Colored Federal Airway; Alaska, 64573-64575 [E8-25940]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 211 / Thursday, October 30, 2008 / Proposed Rules Applicability (c) This AD applies to Fokker F.28 Mark 0070 and 0100 airplanes, certificated in any category. Subject (d) Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 53: Fuselage. pwalker on PROD1PC71 with PROPOSALS Reason (e) The mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) states: Several reports have been received about roll control problems due to frozen moisture on the aileron pulleys that are located in the LH [left-hand] and RH [right-hand] Main Landing Gear (MLG) wheel bays on the centre wing rear spar, under the wing to fuselage fairings. Investigation revealed that improper sealing of the aerodynamic seals of the Wing-to-Fuselage Fairings can cause rainor washwater and de-icing fluids to leak onto the affected aileron pulleys. Exposure of the aileron pulleys to the leaked moisture in freezing condition can result in restricted aileron control movement (partly jammed) and/or higher control forces. This condition, if not corrected, could lead to partial loss of control of the aircraft. To address this unsafe condition, Fokker Services originally introduced SBF100–53–101 which was made mandatory through CAA Netherlands (CAA– NL) AD NL–2005–013 [which corresponds to FAA AD 2008–04–22] with a compliance time of 12 months after November 1, 2005. Following this, new reports of problems due to freezing moisture in the same area have been received. This has prompted Fokker Services to publish SBF100–53–107, which introduces an additional one-time inspection [for deviations] of the aerodynamic seals of the Wing-to-Fuselage Fairings and the application of an improved sealing of the aerodynamic seal by means of a fillet seam between the upper left and right fairings and the fuselage skin. For the reasons described above, this EASA AD supersedes CAA–NL AD NL–2005–013 and requires an additional one-time inspection [for deviations] and application of improved sealing. This action retains the inspection in AD 2008–04–22. Doing the additional inspection terminates the requirement to do the inspection required by the existing AD. The additional inspection for deviations includes inspecting for fit between the left-hand and right-hand wing-to-fuselage fairings and the fuselage skin; inspecting for damage to the aerodynamic seal on the fairings; inspecting for fit of the aerodynamic seal to the fuselage; and related investigative and corrective actions if necessary. The related investigative actions include inspecting the aerodynamic seal for damage (including wear); inspecting the abrasion resistant coating for damage (including wear); and re-inspecting for fit. The corrective actions include installing a new seal, restoring the protective coating, correcting the position of the fairing, and sealing the gaps between the fairings and the surrounding structure. VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:41 Oct 29, 2008 Jkt 217001 Restatement of Certain Requirements of AD 2008–04–22 (f) Unless already done: Within 12 months after April 3, 2008 (the effective date of AD 2008–04–22), inspect the wing-to-fuselage fairings for indications of incorrect fit, damage, or wear, in accordance with the Accomplishment Instructions of Fokker Service Bulletin SBF100–53–101, dated September 30, 2005 (‘‘the service bulletin’’). Doing the inspection required by paragraph (g) of this AD terminates the actions required by this paragraph. (1) If no indications of incorrect fit, damage, or wear are found, no further action is required by this paragraph. (2) If any incorrect fit, damage, or wear is found, before next flight, do related investigative actions and applicable corrective actions in accordance with the Accomplishment Instructions of the service bulletin. New Requirements of This AD: Actions and Compliance (g) Unless already done: Within 12 months after the effective date of this AD, inspect for deviations of the aerodynamic seal of the wing-to-fuselage fairings and the fuselage skin, do all applicable related investigative and corrective actions, and apply a fillet seam between the fairings and the fuselage skin, in accordance with the Accomplishment Instructions of Fokker Service Bulletin SBF100–53–107, dated February 26, 2008. Do all applicable related investigative and corrective actions before further flight. Accomplishment of this inspection terminates the actions required by paragraph (f) of this AD. FAA AD Differences Note: This AD differs from the MCAI and/ or service information as follows: No differences. Other FAA AD Provisions (h) The following provisions also apply to this AD: (1) Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs): The Manager, ANM–116, International Branch, Transport Airplane Directorate, FAA, has the authority to approve AMOCs for this AD, if requested using the procedures found in 14 CFR 39.19.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Public Participation Interested persons are invited to participate in this rulemaking by submitting written data, views, or arguments on all aspects of the proposed rule. CBP also invites comments that relate to the economic, environmental, or federalism effects that might result from this proposed rule. Comments that will provide the most assistance to CBP will reference a specific portion of the proposed rule, explain the reason for any recommended change, and include data, information, or authority that support such recommended change. See ADDRESSES above for information on how to submit comments. Background CBP published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (73 FR 43385) on July 25, 2008, proposing to amend the CBP regulations to establish uniform rules of origin for imported merchandise. The proposed rule would extend application of the country of origin rules codified in 19 CFR part 102. Those rules have proven PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 64575 to be more objective and transparent and provide greater predictability in determining the country of origin of imported merchandise than the system of case-by-case adjudication they would replace. The proposed change also will aid an importer’s exercise of reasonable care. In addition, the document proposes to amend the country of origin rules applicable to pipe fitting and flanges, printed greeting cards, glass optical fiber, and rice preparations. Finally, the proposed rule would amend the textile regulations set forth in § 102.21 to make corrections so that the regulations reflect the language of section 334(b)(5) of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act. The notice of proposed rulemaking invited the public to comment on the proposal. Comments on the proposed rule were requested on or before September 23, 2008. In response to the proposed rule published in the Federal Register, CBP received correspondence from several parties requesting an extension of the comment period. In a notice published in the Federal Register on September 8, 2008 (73 FR 51962), CBP provided an additional 30 days for interested parties to submit comments on the proposed rule until October 23, 2008. Re-Opening of Comment Period As a result of modifications to the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) in 2007, certain tariff provisions have been added or removed, and certain goods have been transferred, for tariff classification purposes, to different or newly-created provisions. CBP is publishing a document in today’s Federal Register which sets forth technical corrections to §§ 102.20 and 102.21 of the CBP regulations (19 CFR 102.20 and 102.21) in order to align the regulations with the current version of the HTSUS. The technical corrections to the tariff shift rules set forth in that document will enable parties to properly evaluate the impact, if any, of the proposed rule on the country of origin of their goods. Accordingly, in order to afford parties the opportunity to enhance their review of the proposed rule and provide meaningful comment in light of the technical corrections to §§ 102.20 and 102.21, the decision has been made to re-open the comment period on the proposed rule. Comments are now due on or before December 1, 2008. E:\FR\FM\30OCP1.SGM 30OCP1

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to establish Colored Federal Airway B-7 
between Bethel and Cape Newenham, AK. This action would add to the IFR 
airway and route structure in Alaska by providing IFR connectivity 
between Bethel, AK and Cape Newenham, AK. The FAA is proposing this 
action to improve the management of air traffic operations in the State 
of Alaska and to enhance safety.
    Colored Federal Airways are published in paragraph 6009 of FAA 
Order 7400.9R, signed August 15, 2007, and effective September 15, 
2007, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Colored 
Federal Airways listed in this document will be published subsequently 
in the 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 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 
because it proposes to create a Federal Airway within the State of 
Alaska and represents the FAA's continuing effort to safely and 
efficiently use the navigable airspace.

Environmental Review

    The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical 
exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance 
with FAA Order 1050.1E, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies and 
Procedures,'' paragraph 311a. This airspace action is not expected to 
cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no 
extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an 
environmental assessment.
