Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 102 / Tuesday, May 28, 2013 / Rules and Regulations architecture and a full digital flight control system which provides comprehensive flight envelope protections. of airplanes. It is not a rule of general applicability. Discussion The applicable airworthiness regulation in this instance is 14 CFR § 25.143. The purpose of § 25.143 is to verify that any operational maneuvers conducted within the operational envelope can be accomplished smoothly with average piloting skill and without exceeding any structural limits. The pilot should be able to predict the airplane response to any control input. During the course of the flight test program, the pilot determines compliance with § 25.143 through primarily qualitative methods. During flight test, the pilot should evaluate all of the following: • The interface between each protection function, • Transitions from one mode to another, • The aircraft response to intentional dynamic maneuvering, whenever applicable, through dedicated maneuvers, • General controllability assessment, • High speed characteristics, and • High angle-of-attack. Section § 25.143, however, does not adequately ensure that the novel or unusual features of the Model EMB–550 airplane will have a level of safety equivalent to that of existing standards. This special condition is therefore required to accommodate the the flightenvelope-limiting systems in the Model EMB–550 airplane. The additional safety standards in this special condition will ensure a level of safety equivalent to that of existing standards. Aircraft, Aviation safety, Reporting and recordkeeping requirements. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 25 wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES Discussion of Comments Notice of proposed special conditions number 25–19–SC for the Embraer S.A. Model EMB–550 airplanes was published in the Federal Register on January 24, 2013 (78 FR 5148). No comments were received, and the special conditions are adopted as proposed. Applicability As discussed above, these special conditions are applicable to the Model EMB–550 airplane. Should Embraer S.A. apply at a later date for a change to the type certificate to include another model incorporating the same novel or unusual design feature, the special conditions would apply to that model as well. Conclusion This action affects only certain novel or unusual design features on one model VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:18 May 24, 2013 Jkt 229001 31839 Issued in Renton, Washington, on May 21, 2013.

DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Aviation Administration 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 Embraer S.A. Model EMB–550 airplanes. 1. General Limiting Requirements: a. Onset characteristics of each envelope protection feature must be smooth, appropriate to the phase of flight and type of maneuver, and not in conflict with the ability of the pilot to satisfactorily change airplane flight path, speed, or attitude as needed. b. Limit values of protected flight parameters (and if applicable, associated warning thresholds) must be compatible with the following: i. Airplane structural limits, ii. Required safe and controllable maneuvering of the airplane, and iii. Margins to critical conditions. Unsafe flight characteristics/conditions must not result if dynamic maneuvering, airframe and system tolerances (both manufacturing and inservice), and non-steady atmospheric conditions, in any appropriate combination and phase of flight, can produce a limited flight parameter beyond the nominal design limit value. c. The airplane must be responsive to intentional dynamic maneuvering to within a suitable range of the parameter limit. Dynamic characteristics such as damping and overshoot must also be appropriate for the flight maneuver and limit parameter in question. d. When simultaneous envelope limiting is engaged, adverse coupling or adverse priority must not result. 2. Failure States: Electronic flight control system failures (including sensor) must not result in a condition where a parameter is limited to such a reduced value that safe and controllable maneuvering is no longer available. The crew must be alerted by suitable means if any change in envelope limiting or maneuverability is produced by single or multiple failures of the electronic flight control system not shown to be extremely improbable. ■ PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 14 CFR Part 71 [Docket No. FAA–2012–0821; Airspace Docket No. 12–ASW–8] Establishment of Class E Airspace; Beeville-Chase Field, TX Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The CSX Transportation, Inc. requested a temporary deviation for the Louisville and Nashville Railroad Drawbridge, across the Cumberland River, mile 190.4, at Nashville, Tennessee to remain in the closed-to-navigation position while a worn gear and shaft assembly are replaced. The closure period will start at 8 a.m., May 28, 2013 to 6 p.m., May 29, 2013. Once the worn gear and shaft assembly are removed, the swing span will not be able to open, even for emergencies, until the replacement of the gear and shaft assembly is installed. The Louisville and Nashville Railroad Drawbridge currently operates in accordance with 33 CFR 117.5, which states the general requirement that drawbridges shall open promptly and fully for the passage of vessels when a request to open is given in accordance with the subpart. In order to facilitate the needed bridge work, the drawbridge must be kept in the closed-to-navigation position. There are no alternate routes for vessels transiting this section of the Cumberland River. The Louisville and Nashville Railroad Drawbridge, in the closed-to-navigation position, provides a vertical clearance of 47 feet above normal pool. Navigation on the waterway consists primarily of commercial tows and recreational watercraft. This temporary deviation has been coordinated with the waterway users. No objections were received. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the designated period of this temporary deviation.
