Docket No. FAA–2011–0259; Directorate Identifier 2010–NM–196–AD. Effective Date (a) This airworthiness directive (AD) becomes effective July 27, 2011. Affected ADs (b) This AD supersedes AD 2010–02–02, Amendment 39–16173. Applicability (c) This AD applies to Dassault Aviation Model FALCON 7X airplanes, certificated in any category, all serial numbers. Subject (d) Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 34: Navigation. Reason (e) The mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) states: Several occurrences of untimely radioaltimeter lock-up have been reported, where the failed radio-altimeter indicated a negative distance to the ground despite the aircraft was flying at medium or high altitude. A locked radio-altimeter #1 leads to untimely inhibition of warnings that could be displayed along with certain abnormal conditions while the avionic system switches into landing mode during altitude cruise. * * * * * [Untimely radio altimeter lock-up] may cause the crew to be unaware of possible system failures that could require urgent crew’s actions. * * * * * jlentini on DSK4TPTVN1PROD with RULES Compliance (f) You are responsible for having the actions required by this AD performed within the compliance times specified, unless the actions have already been done. Restatement of Requirements of AD 2010– 02–02, With Revised Affected Airplanes (g) For airplanes on which modification M0566 or Dassault Service Bulletin Falcon 7X–100 has not been accomplished: Within 14 days after January 28, 2010 (the effective date of AD 2010–02–02), revise the Limitations Section of the Dassault Falcon 7X Airplane Flight Manual (AFM) to include the following statement. This may be done by inserting a copy of this AD in the AFM. ‘‘If radio-altimeter #1 lock-up conditions occur in flight, power off radio-altimeter #1, in accordance with the instructions of Falcon 7X AFM procedure 3–140–65. Dispatch of the airplane with any radioaltimeter inoperative is prohibited.’’ Note 1: When a statement identical to that in paragraph (g) of this AD has been included in the general revisions of the AFM, the general revisions may be inserted into the AFM, and the copy of this AD may be removed from the AFM. New Requirements of This AD (h) For airplanes on which M0566 or Dassault Service Bulletin Falcon 7X–100 has been accomplished: Within 14 days after the VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:22 Jun 21, 2011 Jkt 223001 effective date of this AD, revise the Limitations Section of the Dassault Falcon 7X AFM to include the following statement. This may be done by inserting a copy of this AD in the AFM. Doing this revision terminates the requirements of paragraph (g) of this AD. ‘‘If radio-altimeter #1 lock-up conditions occur in flight, revert to the correct radioaltimeter output, in accordance with the instructions of Falcon 7X AFM procedure 3–140–65B and 3–140–70A. Dispatch of the airplane with any radioaltimeter inoperative is prohibited.’’ Note 2: When a statement identical to that in paragraph (h) of this AD has been included in the general revisions of the AFM, the general revisions may be inserted into the AFM, and the copy of this AD may be removed from the AFM.

The Rule This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Brunswick, ME to provide controlled airspace required to support the standard instrument approach procedures developed for Brunswick Executive Airport. This action is necessary for the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. Brunswick Executive Airport uses the same facilities as the former Brunswick Naval Air Station (NAS), which closed in September 2010 (see 75 FR 57848). The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current, is non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative comments. It, therefore, (1) is not a ‘‘significant 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 so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that 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. 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

History

    On March 18, 2011, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking to establish Class E airspace at 
Brunswick Executive Airport, Brunswick, ME (75 FR 14824) Docket No. 
FAA-2011-0116. Interested parties were invited to participate in this 
rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the 
FAA. No comments were received. Subsequent to publication, a 
typographical error was found in the controlled airspace radius 
mileage. This action will make the correction.

[[Page 36286]]

    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of 
FAA Order 7400.9U dated August 18, 2010, and effective September 15, 
2010, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR Part 71.1. The Class 
E airspace designations listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in the Order.

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface at Brunswick, ME to provide controlled airspace 
required to support the standard instrument approach procedures 
developed for Brunswick Executive Airport. This action is necessary for 
the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. Brunswick 
Executive Airport uses the same facilities as the former Brunswick 
Naval Air Station (NAS), which closed in September 2010 (see 75 FR 
57848).
    The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an 
established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current, is 
non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative 
comments. It, therefore, (1) is not a ``significant 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 so minimal. Since this is a routine matter 
that 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.
    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 
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 establishes Class E airspace at Brunswick, ME.
