Amendment of Class E Airspace; Paragould, AR, 21846-21847 [2014-08771]

Download as PDF 21846 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 75 / Friday, April 18, 2014 / Rules and Regulations Costs of Compliance We estimate that this AD will affect about 232 engines installed on aircraft of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it will take about 24 hours per engine to comply with this AD. The average labor rate is $85 per hour. Required parts will cost about $9,268 per engine. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this AD on U.S. operators to be $2,623,456. Authority for This Rulemaking Title 49 of the United States Code specifies the FAA’s authority to issue rules on aviation safety. 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. 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. pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with RULES Regulatory Findings We 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 this AD: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866, (2) Is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under the DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034, February 26, 1979), (3) Will not affect intrastate aviation in Alaska to the extent that it justifies making a regulatory distinction, 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. We prepared a regulatory evaluation of the estimated costs to comply with this AD and placed it in the AD docket.

Adoption of the Amendment Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the FAA amends 14 CFR part 39 as follows: PART 39—AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES 1. The authority citation for part 39 continues to read as follows: ■ Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701. § 39.13 [Amended] 2. The FAA amends § 39.13 by adding the following new airworthiness directive (AD): ■ 2014–08–05 Rolls-Royce Deutschland Ltd & Co KG (Type Certificate previously held by Rolls-Royce Deutschland GmbH and BMW Rolls-Royce GmbH): Amendment 39–17829; Docket No. FAA–2013–0884; Directorate Identifier 2013–NE–31–AD. (a) Effective Date This AD becomes effective May 23, 2014. (b) Affected ADs None. (c) Applicability This AD applies to all Rolls-Royce Deutschland Ltd & Co KG (RRD) BR700– 715A1–30, BR700–715B1–30, and BR700– 715C1–30 turbofan engines. (d) Reason This AD was prompted by a report of a partial de-bonding of the low-pressure compressor (LPC) case ice impact panels during an engine shop visit. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the LPC case ice impact panels, which could result in damage to the engine and loss of control of the airplane. (e) Actions and Compliance Unless already done, after the effective date of this AD, at the next engine shop visit or within 12,500 engine flight cycles since the last shop visit, whichever occurs first, replace the four LPC ice impact panels with panels eligible for installation. (f) Definitions (1) For the purposes of this AD, an ‘‘engine shop visit’’ is the induction of an engine into the shop for maintenance involving the separation of pairs of major mating engine flanges. The separation of engine flanges solely for the purpose of transportation without subsequent engine maintenance does not constitute an engine shop visit. (2) For the purposes of this AD, a panel that is ‘‘eligible for installation’’ is a new LPC impact panel or one that has been repaired using RRD Alert Non-Modification Service Bulletin (NMSB) No. ALERT SB–BR700–72– A900281, dated July 1, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

History

    On January 8, 2014, the FAA published in the Federal Register a 
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend Class E airspace for the 
Paragould, AR, area, modifying controlled airspace at Kirk Field 
Airport (79 FR 1344) Docket No. FAA-2013-0588. 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 
7400.9X dated August 7, 2013, and effective September 15, 2013, 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 amending Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface for standard instrument approach procedures at Kirk 
Field Airport, Paragould, AR. Airspace reconfiguration is necessary due 
to the decommissioning of the Paragould NDB and the cancellation of the 
NDB approach. The segment northeast of the airport is now within 2.5 
miles each side of the 062[deg] bearing from the airport. Controlled 
airspace is necessary for the safety and management of IFR operations 
at the airport. Geographic coordinates are also adjusted to coincide 
with the FAA's aeronautical database.
    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 amends controlled airspace at Kirk Field, Paragould, AR.

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.
