Novel or Unusual Design Features The GIV–X will incorporate the following novel or unusual design features: Digital systems architecture composed of several connected networks. The proposed architecture and network configuration may be used for, or interfaced with, a diverse set of functions, including: 1. Flight-safety related control, communication, and navigation systems (aircraft control domain); 2. Airline business and administrative support (airline information domain); 3. Passenger information and entertainment systems (passenger entertainment domain); and 4. The capability to allow access to or by external sources. pmangrum on DSK29S0YB1PROD with RULES same type certificate to incorporate the same novel or unusual design feature, the special conditions would also apply to the other model. In addition to the applicable airworthiness regulations and special conditions, the GIV–X must comply with the fuel vent and exhaust emission requirements of 14 CFR part 34 and the noise certification requirements of 14 CFR part 36. The FAA issues special conditions, as defined in 14 CFR 11.19, in accordance with § 11.38, and they become part of the type certification basis under § 21.101. Conclusion This action affects only certain novel or unusual design features on one model of airplane. It is not a rule of general applicability and affects only the applicant who applied to the FAA for approval of these features on the airplane. The substance of these special conditions has been subjected to the notice and comment period in several prior instances and has been derived without substantive change from those previously issued. It is unlikely that prior public comment would result in a significant change from the substance contained herein. Therefore, because a delay would significantly affect the certification of the airplane, which is imminent, the FAA has determined that prior public notice and comment are unnecessary and impracticable, and good cause exists for adopting these special conditions upon issuance. The FAA is requesting comments to allow interested persons to submit views that may not have been submitted in response to the prior opportunities for comment described above. Discussion The GIV–X integrated network configuration may allow increased connectivity with external network sources and will have more interconnected networks and systems, such as passenger entertainment and information services, than previous Gulfstream airplane models. This may allow the exploitation of network security vulnerabilities and increased risks potentially resulting in unsafe conditions for the airplane and its occupants. This potential exploitation of security vulnerabilities may result in intentional or unintentional destruction, disruption, degradation, or exploitation of data and systems critical to the safety and maintenance of the airplane. The existing regulations and guidance material did not anticipate these types of system architectures. Furthermore, 14 CFR regulations and current system safety assessment policy and techniques do not address potential security vulnerabilities which could be exploited by unauthorized access to airplane networks and servers. Therefore, these special conditions are being issued to ensure that the security (i.e., confidentiality, integrity, and availability) of airplane systems is not VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:45 Oct 19, 2011 Jkt 226001 Applicability As discussed above, these special conditions are applicable to the Gulfstream Model GIV–X. Should Gulfstream apply at a later date for a supplemental type certificate to modify any other model included on the Type Certificate No. A12EA to incorporate the same novel or unusual design features, these special conditions would apply to that model as well. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 25 Aircraft, Aviation safety, Reporting and recordkeeping requirements. The authority citation for these special conditions is as follows: Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701, 44702, 44704. The Special Conditions Accordingly, pursuant to the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the following special conditions are issued as part of the type certification basis for Gulfstream Model GIV–X airplanes. 1. The applicant must ensure that the design provides isolation from, or airplane electronic system security protection against, access by unauthorized sources internal to the airplane. The design must prevent inadvertent and malicious changes to, PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 and all adverse impacts upon, airplane equipment, systems, networks, or other assets required for safe flight and operations. 2. The applicant must establish appropriate procedures to allow the operator to ensure that continued airworthiness of the aircraft is maintained, including all post Type Certification modifications that may have an impact on the approved electronic system security safeguards.

The FAA subsequently delayed the effective date from June 30, 2011, until further notice (76 FR 35097; June 16, 2011). The FAA has determined that V–320 and V–440 do not have satisfactory signal reception coverage capable of meeting the existing MEA requirements in the vicinity of Anchorage, AK. Amendments for these airways will be proposed at a future date under a separate rulemaking. Accordingly, this action is taken to remove these two Victor airways in Alaska. The remaining 27 ATS routes, as amended, are unaffected by this action and the effective date remains delayed until further notice per the final rule, delay of effective date published in the Federal Register on June 16, 2011 (76 FR 35097). VOR Federal airways are published in Paragraph 6010 of FAA Order 7400.9V, dated August 9, 2011, and effective September 15, 2011, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The VOR Federal airways listed in this document will be subsequently published in the Order. 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 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 as it modifies Federal airways in Alaska.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 65107 Background We are making final the rule for recovery of delinquent debts that we proposed in a Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM) published in the Federal Register on March 2, 2011 (76 FR 11402). The preamble to the NPRM discussed the changes from the current rules and our reasons for proposing those changes. To the extent that we are adopting the proposed rule as published, we are not repeating that information here. Interested readers may refer to the preamble to the NPRM.1 Changes to Our Regulations We are changing our regulations to conform to Treasury’s regulations. In addition to collecting non-tax debts beyond the original 10-year statute of limitations, we will collect delinquent overpayments under titles II, VIII, and XVI by offset of various State payments, including State tax refunds. Debt Collection Improvement Act (DCIA) of 1996, Public Law 104–134, 110 Stat. 1321–358 et seq. (April 26, 1996); 31 U.S.C. 3716; 31 CFR 285.6. Therefore, we are changing Title 20 §§ 404.520, 404.521, 408.940, 408.941, 416.580, 416.581, and 422.310. Under these sections, we notify the overpaid person and refer overpayments to Treasury for tax refund and administrative offset. Public Comments on the NPRM In the NPRM, we provided the public a 60-day comment period, which ended on May 2, 2011. We received two public comments from individuals. Since the comments were long, we have summarized and paraphrased them. We are responding to the significant issues raised by the commenters that were within the scope of this rule. Comment: One commenter wanted to make sure that our regulations are written with understandable language. Response: We are committed to writing our documents clearly and welcome feedback if the public does not believe that our documents are clear. Comment: Another commenter agreed with our proposed rule and suggested that individuals be given ample notice before monies are reclaimed and that individuals be thoroughly informed before entering into a contract that might fall under this rule. Response: Before referring a person for offset under these sections, we will give him or her at least 60 days prior notice in accordance with §§ 404.521, 408.941, 416.581, and 422.310. 1 The NPRM is available at http:// www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=SSA2010-0010-0001.

SUMMARY: This action removes two modified VHF Omnidirectional Range 
(VOR) Federal airways, V-320 and V-440, from a final rule published in 
the Federal Register of April 28, 2011. That rule amended 29 Air 
Traffic Service (ATS) routes in Alaska affected by the relocation of 
the Anchorage VOR navigation aid. The FAA is taking this action as a 
result of these VOR Federal airways not passing flight inspections to 
retain existing minimum enroute altitude (MEA) requirements in the 
vicinity of Anchorage, AK.

affected by the relocation of the Anchorage VOR navigation aid. The FAA 
subsequently delayed the effective date from June 30, 2011, until 
further notice (76 FR 35097; June 16, 2011).
    The FAA has determined that V-320 and V-440 do not have 
satisfactory signal reception coverage capable of meeting the existing 
MEA requirements in the vicinity of Anchorage, AK. Amendments for these 
airways will be proposed at a future date under a separate rulemaking. 
Accordingly, this action is taken to remove these two Victor airways in 
Alaska.
    The remaining 27 ATS routes, as amended, are unaffected by this 
action and the effective date remains delayed until further notice per 
the final rule, delay of effective date published in the Federal 
Register on June 16, 2011 (76 FR 35097).
    VOR Federal airways are published in Paragraph 6010 of FAA Order 
7400.9V, dated August 9, 2011, and effective September 15, 2011, which 
is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The VOR Federal airways 
listed in this document will be subsequently published in the Order.
    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 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 
as it modifies Federal airways in Alaska.

Final Rule Technical Amendment

    Accordingly, pursuant to the authority delegated to me, the 
modified VOR Federal airways V-320 and V-440 legal descriptions as 
published in the Federal Register on April 28, 2011 (76 FR 23687), FR 
Doc. 2011-10240, page 23688, column 2, line 4, and column 3, line 4, 
respectively, are removed.
