Airworthiness Directives; Continental Motors, Inc. Reciprocating Engines
Document Number: 2016-05467
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-03-11
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Continental Motors, Inc. (CMI) TSIO-550-K, TSIOF-550-K, TSIO- 550-C, TSIOF-550-D, and TSIO-550-N reciprocating engines. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of an uncommanded in-flight shutdown (IFSD) resulting in injuries and significant airplane damage. This proposed AD would require replacing the oil cooler cross fitting assembly. We are proposing this AD to prevent failure of the oil cooler cross fitting and engine, IFSD and loss of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Turbomeca S.A. Turboshaft Engines
Document Number: 2016-05465
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-03-11
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Turbomeca S.A. MAKILA 2A and MAKILA 2A1 turboshaft engines. This proposed AD was prompted by two occurrences of crack initiation on a ferrule of the diffuser. This proposed AD would require repetitive diffuser inspections and replacement of those diffusers that fail inspection. We are proposing this AD to prevent rupture of the ferrule of the diffuser, which could result in engine fire and damage to the helicopter.
Airworthiness Directives; Rolls-Royce Deutschland Ltd & Co KG Turbofan Engines
Document Number: 2016-05463
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-03-11
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede airworthiness directive (AD) 2006-18- 14 that applies to all Rolls-Royce Deutschland Ltd & Co KG (RRD) Tay 650-15 and Tay 651-54 turbofan engines. AD 2006-18-14 requires calculating and re-establishing the cyclic life of stage 1 high- pressure turbine (HPT) disks, part number (P/N) JR32013 and P/N JR33838, and stage 1 low-pressure turbine (LPT) disk, P/N JR32318A. This proposed AD would require re-calculating the cyclic life, and would impose a reduced cyclic life, of stage 1 HPT disk, P/N JR32013. We are proposing this AD to prevent failure of stage 1 HPT disks, P/N JR32013 and P/N JR33838, and stage 1 LPT disk, P/N JR32318A, which could result in an uncontained engine failure and damage to the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Turbomeca S.A. Turboshaft Engines
Document Number: 2016-05461
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-03-11
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to supersede airworthiness directive (AD) 2010-11- 10 that applies to all Turbomeca S.A., Astazou XIV B and XIV H turboshaft engines. AD 2010-11-10 requires inspection of certain third stage turbine wheels and removal of any damaged wheel. This AD was prompted by a report of a third stage turbine wheel crack detected during engine overhaul. This proposed AD would expand the population and frequency of repetitive inspections. We are proposing this AD to prevent uncontained failure of the third stage turbine wheel, which could result in damage to the engine and damage to the helicopter.
Airworthiness Directives; Dowty Propellers Constant Speed Propellers
Document Number: 2016-05460
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-03-11
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Dowty Propellers R352/6-123-F/1, R352/6-123-F/2, and R410/6-123-F/35 model propellers. This AD was prompted by reports of dowel hole cracks in the face of the rear hub half. This AD requires installing dowel hole liners as necessary. We are issuing this AD to prevent loss of structural integrity of the propeller hub, which could result in damage to the propeller and damage to the airplane.
Medicare Program; Part B Drug Payment Model
Document Number: 2016-05459
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-03-11
Agency: Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, Department of Health and Human Services
This proposed rule discusses the implementation of a new Medicare payment model under section 1115A of the Social Security Act (the Act). We propose the Part B Drug Payment Model as a two-phase model that would test whether alternative drug payment designs will lead to a reduction in Medicare expenditures, while preserving or enhancing the quality of care provided to Medicare beneficiaries. The first phase would involve changing the 6 percent add-on to Average Sales Price (ASP) that we use to make drug payments under Part B to 2.5 percent plus a flat fee (in a budget neutral manner). The second phase would implement value-based purchasing tools similar to those employed by commercial health plans, pharmacy benefit managers, hospitals, and other entities that manage health benefits and drug utilization. We believe this model will further our goals of smarter, that is, more efficient spending on quality care for Medicare beneficiaries.

Proposed Collection: Study to Estimate Radiation Doses and Cancer Risks from Radioactive Fallout from the Trinity Nuclear Test, 0925-NEW, New Submission, National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH). Need and Use of Information Collection: This research plan is for a radiation-related cancer risk projection study for the residents of the state of New Mexico (NM) potentially exposed to radioactive fallout from the Trinity nuclear test conducted in 1945. Data will be collected on diet and lifestyle from three groups in NM (non-Hispanic white, Hispanic, and Native American) alive in the 1940s via focus groups and key informant interviews and will be used to derive means and ranges of exposure-related parameters, such as consumption of contaminated foodstuffs, collection and use of water, time spend outdoors, and building materials. These parameter values will be used with historical fallout deposition data in fallout dose assessment models to estimate external and internal radiation doses to typical persons in all counties in New Mexico by ethnicity and age. The estimated doses will be used with literature-derived risk and parameter values on risk/unit dose to project the excess cancers expected (per 1,000 persons within each stratum) including uncertainty on each estimate. Endpoints are leukemia, thyroid cancer, stomach cancer, colon cancer, and all solid cancers combined. This data collection is needed to accomplish the overall Trinity Study goals, which are to: (1) Estimate external and internal radiation dose to the four primary organs/tissues of interest (thyroid, stomach, colon, and red bone marrow) from primary radionuclides in nuclear testing fallout in each county of New Mexico as a result of the Trinity test, stratified by age, gender, ethnicity, and conditions of exposure (low, medium, high); (2) in each county, estimate the number of excess cancer cases to organs of interest per 1,000 (hypothetical) persons stratified by age, gender, ethnicity, and conditions of exposure (low, medium, high). The study data will be collected via focus group and individual interview. Between 10 and 15 focus groups with up to 8 participants are planned. These participants will be 70 years old and older, living in New Mexico, who were alive at the time of the Trinity nuclear test and living in any of 19 Native American pueblos/tribes or Hispanic/Latino and non-Hispanic white communities in or near the fallout region in New Mexico. Additionally, up to 30 individual interviews are planned with key informants chosen to represent a variety of experiences and expertise. Individuals who prefer not to take part in a focus group will be interviewed individually as key informants. The investigators will collaborate with community representatives who will recommend potential participants for either the focus groups or interviews. The objective of the focus groups and interviews is to collect information directly from community members who were alive at the time of the Trinity test, or with direct knowledge of specific life circumstances, cultural patterns, and dietary practices of Native Americans, Hispanics/Latinos, or non-Hispanic whites living in New Mexico at this time. In this study, two interviewers, including one with extensive experience working with tribal communities, will moderate the focus groups and conduct in-depth interviews. Translators and interpreters with experience in the study populations will be presented when needed. Each focus group and interview will be scheduled for no more than two hours and will take place in office settings, community facilities, or municipal facilities. OMB approval is requested for 3 years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 395.

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Helicopters
Document Number: 2016-05369
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-03-11
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Airbus Helicopters Model AS 365 N3 helicopters. This proposed AD would require inspecting the cabin and cockpit for labels, placards, or markings that provide jettison procedure instructions for cabin doors, removing any labels, placards, or markings that are in an incorrect location, and installing placards where they are missing. This proposed AD is prompted by the determination that placards had not been installed according to specifications on newly manufactured helicopters. The proposed actions are intended to provide exit procedures during an emergency.

We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Agusta Model AB139 and AW139 helicopters. This proposed AD would require performing operational checks of both hydraulic systems. This proposed AD is prompted by an assessment of the hydraulic systems of the helicopter following an accident. The proposed actions are intended to prevent loss of hydraulic power to the flight controls and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.

Airworthiness Directives; Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation
Document Number: 2016-05258
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-03-11
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation (Sikorsky) Model S-92A helicopters.

Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Removal of the Louisiana Black Bear From the Federal List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Removal of Similarity-of-Appearance Protections for the American Black Bear
Document Number: 2016-05206
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-03-11
Agency: Fish and Wildlife Service, Department of the Interior
We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), are removing the Louisiana black bear (Ursus americanus luteolus) from the Federal List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife (List). This action is based on a thorough review of the best available scientific and commercial information, which indicates that this subspecies has recovered and no longer meets the definition of an endangered or threatened species under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act). Our review of the status of this subspecies shows that the threats have been eliminated or reduced, adequate regulatory mechanisms exist, and populations are stable such that the species is not currently, and is not likely to again become, a threatened species within the foreseeable future in all or a significant portion of its range. This rule also removes from the List the American black bear, which is listed within the historical range of the Louisiana black bear due to similarity of appearance, and removes designated critical habitat for the Louisiana black bear. Finally, this rule also announces the availability of a final post-delisting monitoring (PDM) plan for the Louisiana black bear.
Proposed Amendment of Class D and Class E Airspace for the Following Oklahoma Towns; Antlers, OK; Oklahoma City, OK; Oklahoma City Wiley Post Airport, OK; and Shawnee, OK
Document Number: 2016-05177
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-03-11
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to modify Class D airspace, Class E airspace designated as surface areas, and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Antlers, OK; Oklahoma City, OK; Oklahoma City Wiley Post Airport, OK; and Shawnee, OK. The decommissioning of non-directional radio beacons (NDB) and/or cancellation of NDB approaches due to advances in Global Positioning System (GPS) capabilities have made this action necessary for the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the above locations. This action also would note the updated airport names of David Jay Perry Airport, Goldsby, OK; El Reno Regional Airport, Shawnee Regional Airport, and Chandler Regional Airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database. Additionally, this action would update the geographic coordinates for Tinker AFB, El Reno Regional Airport, Wiley Post Airport, Sundance Airpark, Seminole Municipal Airport, Prague Municipal Airport, Chandler Regional Airport, Tilghman NDB, Cushing Municipal Airport, Cushing NDB, and Cushing Regional Hospital Heliport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database.
Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Clovis, NM
Document Number: 2016-05173
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-03-11
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This action proposes to modify Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Portales Municipal Airport, Clovis, NM. This action is necessary due to the decommissioning of the Portales non-directional radio beacon (NDB), cancellation of NDB approaches at Portales Municipal Airport, and implementation of area navigation (RNAV) procedures at the airport. This action will also update the geographic coordinates for Portales Municipal Airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database. This proposal would enhance the safety and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations in the Clovis, NM, airspace area.
