SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Airworthiness Directive 2012–23–13, Amendment 39–17269 (77 FR 71087, November 29, 2012), currently includes the following under paragraph (e)(xiii) in the Required Actions section: (xiii) For Number 2 crossfeed breakaway valve, P/N 70307–03600–103, establish a life limit of 1,500 hours. As published, the identification of the P/N as 70307–03600–103 is incorrect. The correct P/N is 70307–03006–103. No other part of the regulatory information has been changed; therefore, only the changed portion of the final rule is being published in the Federal Register. wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES Comments After we published our Final rule; request for comments (77 FR 71087; November 29, 2012), we received a comment from one commenter. Request The one commenter from the manufacturer stated that the document VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:32 Jul 11, 2013 Jkt 229001 reduced the life limit for the main and tail rotor blades but does not make any reference to the detailed internal life limited components of the blades. The commenter asked whether the AD applies only to the blade assembly P/Ns and whether the blade components were overlooked. We do not agree that the AD should include life limits for the internal components of the blade assembly. The life limit of each main and tail rotor blade reflects the life limit of its lowest component in the Sikorsky Airworthiness Limitations technical manual. That manual does not list life limits for individual internal components.

The Class E 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 establishing Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 6.8-mile radius of Parkston Municipal Airport, Parkston, SD, to ensure that required controlled airspace exists to contain new standard instrument approach procedures at the airport. Controlled airspace enhances the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. 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 only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, does not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

History

    On April 30, 2013, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to establish Class E airspace for 
the Parkston, SD, area, creating controlled airspace at Parkston 
Municipal Airport (78 FR 25232) Docket No. FAA-2012-1282. 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 E airspace designations are published in paragraph 
6005 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 Class 
E 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 establishing Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface within a 6.8-mile radius of Parkston Municipal 
Airport, Parkston, SD, to ensure that required controlled airspace 
exists to contain new standard instrument approach procedures at the 
airport. Controlled airspace enhances the safety and management of IFR 
operations at the airport.
    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 only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this rule, when promulgated, does 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 establishes controlled airspace at Parkston Municipal Airport, 
Parkston, SD.

Environmental Review

    The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical 
exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance 
with FAA Order 1050.1E, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies and 
Procedures,'' paragraph 311a. This airspace action is not expected to 
cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no 
extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an 
environmental assessment.
