For compartments less than 25 ft3 in interior volume, the design must ensure the ability to contain a fire likely to occur within the compartment under normal use. 2 Smoke or Fire Detectors Enclosed stowage compartments equal to or exceeding 25 ft3 in interior volume must be provided with a smoke or fire detection system to ensure that a fire can be detected within a one-minute detection time. Flight tests must be conducted to show compliance with this requirement. Each system (or systems) must provide: (a) A visual indication in the flight deck within one minute after the start of a fire. (b) An aural warning in the OFAR compartment. (c) A warning in the main passenger cabin. This warning must be readily detectable by a flight attendant, taking into consideration the positioning of flight attendants throughout the main passenger compartment during various phases of flight. 3 Liner If material used in constructing the stowage compartment can be shown to meet the flammability requirements of a liner for a Class B cargo compartment (i.e., § 25.855 at Amendment 25–93, and Appendix F, part I, paragraph (a)(2)(ii)), then no liner would be required for enclosed stowage compartments equal to or greater than 25 ft3 in interior volume but less than 57 ft3 in interior volume. For all enclosed stowage compartments equal to or greater than 57 ft3 in interior volume but less than or equal to 200 ft3, a liner must be provided that meets the requirements of § 25.855 for a Class B cargo compartment. 4 Fire Location Detector If an OFAR compartment has enclosed stowage compartments exceeding 25 ft3 interior volume that are located separately from the other stowage compartments (for example, away from one central location, such as the entry to the OFAR compartment or a common area within the OFAR compartment) that compartment would require additional fire protection features and/or devices to assist the firefighter in determining the location of a fire.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 



History



    On May 18, 2011, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice 

of proposed rulemaking to amend Class D airspace for Denton, TX, 

creating additional controlled airspace at Denton Municipal Airport (76 

FR 28684) Docket No. FAA-2010-1327. 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 D airspace 

designations are published in paragraph 5000 of FAA Order 7400.9U dated 

August 18, 2010, and effective September 15, 2010, which is 

incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class D airspace 

designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in 

the Order.



The Rule



    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 

Part 71 by creating additional Class D airspace for new standard 

instrument approach procedures at Denton Municipal Airport, Denton, TX. 

This action is necessary for the safety and management of IFR 

operations at the airport. The geographic coordinates of Denton 

Municipal Airport are also being updated to coincide with the FAA's 

aeronautical database. With the exception of this change, this action 

is the same as that published in the NPRM.

    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 Denton Municipal Airport, Denton, 

TX.
