Download as PDF erowe on DSK5CLS3C1PROD with RULES 40596 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 132 / Monday, July 11, 2011 / Rules and Regulations finds that the test time associated with the continuous OEI rating is an appropriate baseline to define additional requirements for this new normal use 30- minute AEO rating. Therefore, engine durability using this rating must be demonstrated over and above the takeoff rating and other normal use ratings included in the rating structure. No changes to the special conditions have been made in this regard. The commenter also states that the 25 hour requirement is inconsistent with § 33.87 philosophies, stating that time at any rating validates any lower rating. This statement is incorrect. The test requirements are established to demonstrate engine durability at all normal and emergency ratings and associated limits. The test profiles incorporate specific elements to this end. The normal ratings all have individual elements that must be performed. The 30-minutes AEO rating is a normal use rating that is expected to be used with a frequency of occurrence similar to the takeoff or maximum continuous ratings, and must have a specific and independent element as part of the overall test. Also, the expectation is that 30-minute AEO will be used far more frequently than any emergency 0E1 rating. These emergency ratings must also be demonstrated (when applicable) however due to their limited use, these elements of the test may overlap certain normal rating elements found in the various test profiles. The practice mentioned by the commenter is applied to OEI ratings only, because they are rarely used and only in emergency situations. Therefore, the frequency of occurrence for normal use ratings dictate that specific test time be allocated to each rating, and that time can’t be combined because a rating is higher than another. No changes to the special conditions have been made in this regard. The commenter also states that the basis for 25 hours of required run time was not described in the special condition. The 25 hours was selected to be between the basic cumulative run time for takeoff rating (18.75 hours) and maximum continuous rating (45 hours). This requirement is weighted more heavily toward the takeoff time due to the severe nature of the rating and intended operation. Therefore, no changes to the special conditions have been made in this regard. Applicability These special conditions are applicable to the PWC PW210S turbo VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:08 Jul 08, 2011 Jkt 223001 shaft engine. If PWC applies later for a change to the type certificate to include another closely related model incorporating the same novel or unusual design feature, these special conditions may also apply to that model as well, and would be made part of the certification basis for that model. Conclusion We reviewed the available data, including the comment received, and have determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting this special condition with the changes described above. This action affects only certain novel or unusual design features on one model of engine. It is not a rule of general applicability, and it affects only the applicant who applied to the FAA for approval of this feature on the engine product. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 33 Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Safety. The authority citation for these special conditions is as follows: Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701– 44702, 44704. The Proposed Special Conditions Accordingly, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issues the following special conditions as part of the type certification basis for the PWC PW210S turbo shaft engine. 1. PART 1 DEFINITION. Unless otherwise approved by the Administrator and documented in the appropriate manuals and certification documents, the following definition applies to this special condition: ‘‘Rated 30 Minute AEO Power’’, means the approved shaft horsepower developed under static conditions at the specified altitude and temperature, and within the operating limitations established under part 33, and limited in use to periods not exceeding 30- minutes each. 2. PART 33 REQUIREMENTS. (a) Sections 33.1 Applicability and 33.3 General: As applicable, all documentation, testing and analysis required to comply with the part 33 certification basis, must account for the 30-minute AEO rating, limits and usage. (b) Section 33.4, instructions for continued airworthiness (ICA). In addition to the requirements of § 33.4, the ICA must: (1) Include instructions to ensure that in-service engine deterioration due to rated 30-minute AEO power usage will not be excessive, meaning that all other approved ratings are available within associated limits and assumed usage, for successive flights; and that deterioration PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 will not exceed that assumed for declaring a time between overhaul (TBO) period. (i) The applicant must validate the adequacy of the maintenance actions required under paragraph (b)(1) above. (2) Include in the airworthiness limitations section (ALS), any mandatory inspections and serviceability limits related to the use of the 30-minute AEO rating. (c) Section 33.87, Endurance Test. In addition to the requirements of §§ 33.87(a) and 33.87(d), the overall test run must include a minimum of 25 hours of operation at 30-minute AEO power and limits, divided into periods of 30-minutes AEO power with alternate periods at maximum continuous power or less. (1) Modification of the § 33.87 test requirements to include the 25 hours of operation at 30- minute AEO power rating must be proposed by the Applicant and accepted by the FAA. (2) Each § 33.87(d) continuous oneengine-inoperative (0EI) rating test period of 30-minutes or longer, run at power and limits equal to or higher then the 30-minutes AEO raring, may be credited toward this requirement. Note that the test time required for the takeoff or other OEI ratings may not be counted toward the 25 hours of operation required at the 30-minute AEO rating.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: erowe on DSK5CLS3C1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: History On April 12, 2011, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking to amend Class E airspace for Madison, SD, creating controlled airspace at Madison Municipal Airport (76 FR 20279) Docket No. FAA–2011–0135. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:08 Jul 08, 2011 Jkt 223001 Cost per product Parts cost $0 $170 Part 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 The Rule Adoption of the Amendment This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by creating additional Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface for new standard instrument approach procedures at Madison Municipal Airport, Madison, SD. This action is necessary for the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. Geographic coordinates are also being updated to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database. 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. Therefore, this regulation: (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 U.S. Code. Subtitle 1, 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 amends controlled airspace for Madison Municipal Airport, Madison, SD. In consideration of the foregoing, the Federal Aviation Administration amends 14 CFR Part 71 as follows: PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 9990 Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (Air). PART 71—DESIGNATION OF CLASS A, B, C, D, AND E AIRSPACE AREAS; AIR TRAFFIC SERVICE ROUTES; AND REPORTING POINTS 1. The authority citation for 14 CFR Part 71 continues to read as follows: ■ Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40103, 40113, 40120; E.O. 10854, 24 FR 9565, 3 CFR, 1959– 1963 Comp., p. 389. § 71.1 [Amended] 2. The incorporation by reference in 14 CFR Part 71.1 of the Federal Aviation Administration Order 7400.9U, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 18, 2010, and effective September 15, 2010, is amended as follows: ■ Paragraph 6005 Class E Airspace areas extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth. * * * * * AGL SD E5 Madison, SD [Amended] Madison Municipal Airport, SD (Lat. 44°00′59″ N., long. 97°05′08″ W.)
