Proposed Amendment of Class D Airspace; Santa Monica, CA, 66662-66663 [2011-27807]

Download as PDF wreier-aviles on DSK7SPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS 66662 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 208 / Thursday, October 27, 2011 / Proposed Rules loss of all engines may be excluded when showing that unrecoverable loss of critical portions of the electrical system is extremely improbable. Unrecoverable loss of all engines is covered in 2, below, and thus may be excluded when showing compliance with this requirement. 2. Regardless of any electricalgeneration and distribution-system recovery capability shown under paragraph 1, sufficient electrical-system capability must be provided to: a. Allow time to descend, with all engines inoperative, at the speed that provides the best glide slope, from the maximum operating altitude to the altitude at which the soonest possible engine restart could be accomplished, and b. Subsequently allow multiple start attempts of the engines and APU. This capability must be provided in addition to the electrical capability required by existing 14 CFR part 25 requirements related to operation with all engines inoperative. 3. The airplane emergency electricalpower system must be designed to supply: a. Electrical power required for immediate safety, which must continue to operate without the need for crew action following the loss of the normal electrical power, for a duration sufficient to allow reconfiguration to provide a non-time limited source of electrical power. b. Electrical power required for continued safe flight and landing for the maximum diversion time. 4. If APU-generated electrical power is used in satisfying the requirements of these special conditions, and if reaching a suitable runway upon which to land is beyond the capacity of the battery systems, then the APU must be able to be started under any foreseeable flight condition prior to the depletion of the battery or the restoration of normal electrical power, which ever occurs first. This capability must be demonstrated by flight tests at the most critical condition. a. It must be shown that the APU will provide adequate electrical power for continued safe flight and landing. b. The AFM must incorporate nonnormal procedures that will direct the pilot to take appropriate actions to activate the APU after loss of normal engine-driven generated electrical power. As a part of showing compliance with these special conditions, the tests by which loss of all normal electrical power is demonstrated must also take into account the following: VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:40 Oct 26, 2011 Jkt 226001 1. The failure condition should be assumed to occur during night instrument meteorological conditions (IMC), at the most critical phase of the flight, relative to the worst possible electrical-power distribution and equipment-loads-demand condition. 2. After the unrestorable loss of normal engine generator power, the airplane-engine restart capability must be provided and operations continued in IMC. 3. It should be demonstrated that the aircraft is capable of continued safe flight and landing. The length of time must be computed based on the maximum diversion-time capability for which the airplane is being certified. Consideration for airspeed reductions resulting from the associated failure or failures must be made. 4. The airplane must provide adequate indication of loss of normal electrical power to direct the pilot to the non-normal procedures, and the AFM must incorporate non-normal procedures that will direct the pilot to take appropriate actions.

The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by modifying Class D airspace at Santa Monica Municipal Airport, CA, to accommodate IFR aircraft departing and arriving at the airport. This action, initiated by FAA’s biennial review of the Santa Monica Municipal Airport airspace area, and based on the results of a study conducted by the Los Angeles Visual Flight Rules (VFR) Task Force, and the Los Angeles Class B Workgroup, would enhance the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. Class D airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000, 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 Class D airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in this Order. The FAA has determined 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 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:40 Oct 26, 2011 Jkt 226001 66663 routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified this proposed rule, when promulgated, would 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 for 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 would amend this proposal for controlled airspace at Santa Monica Municipal Airport, Santa Monica, CA. miles northeast, and that airspace beginning at the intersection of the 2.7-mile radius and 287° bearing from the airport to lat. 34°01′43″ N., long. 118°31′49″ W.; to lat. 33°59′06″ N., long. 118°32′16″ W.; to lat. 33°58′47″ N., long. 118°31′43″ W.; to lat. 33°58′04″ N., long. 118°31′42″ W.; to lat. 33°58′04″ N., long. 118°30′25″ W.; to lat. 33°57′00″ N., long. 118°28′41″ W.; to the intersection of the 168° bearing from the airport and the 2.7mile radius of the airport.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by modifying Class D airspace at Santa 
Monica Municipal Airport, CA, to accommodate IFR aircraft departing and 
arriving at the airport. This action, initiated by FAA's biennial 
review of the Santa Monica Municipal Airport airspace area, and based 
on the results of a study conducted by the Los Angeles Visual Flight 
Rules (VFR) Task Force, and the Los Angeles Class B Workgroup, would 
enhance the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. 
Class D airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000, 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 Class D airspace 
designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in 
this Order.
    The FAA has determined 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 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 this proposed rule, when 
promulgated, would 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 for 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 would amend this proposal for controlled airspace at Santa Monica 
Municipal Airport, Santa Monica, CA.
