Amendment of Area Navigation Route Q-1; CA, 71492-71493 [2012-28999]

Download as PDF 71492 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 232 / Monday, December 3, 2012 / Rules and Regulations detail the scope of the Agency’s authority. We are issuing this rulemaking under the authority described in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart III, Section 44701, ‘‘General requirements.’’ Under that section, Congress charges the FAA with promoting safe flight of civil aircraft in air commerce by prescribing regulations for practices, methods, and procedures the Administrator finds necessary for safety in air commerce. This regulation is within the scope of that authority because it addresses an unsafe condition that is likely to exist or develop on products identified in this rulemaking action. 2012–23–12 Turbomeca S.A.: Amendment 39–17268; Docket No. FAA–2008–0681; Directorate Identifier 2008–NE–13–AD. Regulatory Findings Turbomeca S.A. informed the European Aviation Safety Agency of a case of a ‘‘red disk’’ plug, adapted for bench testing, which was installed on the FCU on an engine and released for service operation. An engine experienced an in-service high pressure leak event (at the fuel pump outlet) due to cracking of this ‘‘red disk’’ plug. This leak could lead to in-flight flame-out and/or possibly a fire. This AD was prompted by Turbomeca S.A. informing us that FCUs manufactured, repaired, or overhauled after March 31, 2008, do not require inspection. We are issuing this AD to prevent fuel leaks, which could result in a fire and damage to the helicopter. We have determined that this AD will not have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. This AD will not have a substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. For the reasons discussed above, I certify that this AD: (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), (3) Will not affect intrastate aviation in Alaska, and (4) Will not have a significant economic impact, positive or negative, on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by reference, Safety. Adoption of the Amendment Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the FAA amends 14 CFR part 39 as follows: 1.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Correction to Final Rule History Accordingly, pursuant to the authority delegated to me, the TACOS, CA, waypoint published in the Federal Register on October 29, 2012 (77 FR 65461) for RNAV route Q–1 is corrected as follows: After a recent review of aeronautical data, the Aeronautical Navigation Products Group identified the current VOR Federal airway V–8 description published in FAA Order 7400.9, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, did not match the airway information contained in the FAA’s aeronautical database or the charted depiction of the airway. When V–8 was amended in the Federal Register of September 30, 1993 (58 FR 51010), the airway was realigned over the Rifle, CO, VHF Omnidirectional Range/Distance Measuring Equipment (VOR/DME) navigation aid between Grand Junction, CO, and Kremmling, CO. In the Federal Register of August 9, 2010 (75 FR 47709), V–8 was renamed from the Findlay, OH, VORTAC to the Flag City, OH, VORTAC. The Rifle, CO, VOR/DME was inadvertently deleted from the airway description.

[FR Doc. 2012–28999 Filed 11–30–12; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–13–P VerDate Mar<15>2010 13:39 Nov 30, 2012 Jkt 229001 SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 71493 aeronautical database retained the Rifle, CO, VOR/DME in the airway description correctly and the associated aeronautical charts remain published accordingly. To overcome any confusion or flight safety issues associated with conflicting airway description information being published, the FAA is amending the V–8 legal description to reflect the airway aligned over the Rifle, CO, VOR/DME. Accordingly, since this is an administrative correction to update the V–8 description to be in concert with the FAA’s aeronautical database and charting, notice and public procedures under Title 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary. The Rule The FAA amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by amending the legal description of VOR Federal airway V–8 in the vicinity of Rifle, CO. Specifically, the FAA amends V–8 to reflect the airway aligned over the Rifle, CO, VOR/DME; thus, matching the information currently contained in the FAA’s aeronautical database and the charted depiction of the airway. VOR Federal airways are listed in paragraph 6010 of FAA Order 7400.9W dated August 8, 2012, and effective September 15, 2012, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The VOR Federal airway listed in this document will be revised subsequently 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 Department of Transportation (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, E:\FR\FM\03DER1.SGM 03DER1
