Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 185 / Friday, September 23, 2016 / Proposed Rules Regulatory Findings We determined that this proposed AD would not have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. This proposed AD would 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 proposed regulation: (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, 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. (d) Subject Air Transport Association of America (ATA) Code 34: Navigation. (e) Reason This AD was prompted by mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as cracks in the inner shell of certain pitot/static pressure heads. We are issuing this proposed AD to change the model applicability due to errors found in AD 2016–06–01. (b) Affected ADs This AD replaces AD 2016–06–01, Amendment 39–18432 (81 FR 13717; March 15, 2016). (f) Actions and Compliance Unless already done, do the following actions in paragraphs (f)(1) through (5) of this AD: (1) For all airplanes that are equipped with pitot/static pressure head part number (P/N) DU130–24, except Models BN–2T and BN– 2T–4R: Within 50 hours time-in-service (TIS) after April 19, 2016 (the effective date retained from AD 2016–06–01) and repetitively thereafter at intervals not to exceed 50 hours TIS, inspect the pitot/static pressure head for cracks and/or separation and perform a leak test following the procedures in the action section of BrittenNorman Service Bulletin SB 310, Issue 4, dated September 25, 2015. (2) For Models BN–2T and BN–2T–4R that are equipped with pitot/static pressure head part number (P/N) DU130–24: Within 50 hours TIS after the effective date of this AD and repetitively thereafter at intervals not to exceed 50 hours TIS, inspect the pitot/static pressure head for cracks and/or separation and perform a leak test following the procedures in the action section of BrittenNorman Service Bulletin SB 310, Issue 4, dated September 25, 2015. (3) For all airplanes equipped with pitot/ static pressure head part number (P/N) DU130–24: If, during an inspection or test required in paragraph (f)(1) or (2) of this AD discrepancies are found, before further flight, replace the pitot/static pressure head with an airworthy part. (4) For all airplanes equipped with pitot/ static pressure head part number (P/N) DU130–24: Corrections performed on airplanes as required in paragraph (f)(3) of this AD do not constitute terminating action for the repetitive actions required in paragraph (f)(1) or (2) of this AD. (5) For all airplanes not equipped with a pitot/static pressure head P/N DU130–24 on the effective date of this AD: After April 19, 2016 (the effective date retained from AD 2016–06–01), do not install a pitot/static pressure head P/N DU130–24. (c) Applicability This AD applies to B–N Group Ltd.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Authority for This Rulemaking 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, 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 would amend Class E surface area at Ankeny Regional Airport, Ankeny, IA; and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Algona Municipal Airport, Algona, IA; Ankeny Regional Airport; Atlantic Municipal Airport, Atlantic, IA; Belle Plaine Municipal Airport, Belle Plaine, IA; Creston Municipal Airport, Creston, IA; Estherville Municipal Airport, Estherville, IA; Grinnell Regional Airport, Grinnell, IA; Guthrie County Regional Airport, Guthrie Center, IA; and Oelwein Municipal Airport, Oelwein, IA.

An informal docket may also be examined during normal business hours at the Federal Aviation Administration, Air Traffic Organization, Central Service Center, Operations Support Group, 10101 Hillwood Parkway, Fort Worth, TX 76177. Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.11A, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 3, 2016, and effective September 15, 2016. FAA Order 7400.11A is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11A lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by modifying: Class E surface area airspace within a 4.2-mile radius (increased from the 4mile radius) of Ankeny Regional Airport, Ankeny, IA; Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface: By removing the 10-mile extension northwest of Algona Municipal Airport, Algona, IA, and updating the geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database; Within a 6.7-mile radius (reduced from the previous 7.1-mile radius) of Ankeny Regional Airport, Ankeny, IA, and removing the extensions 9.3 miles northeast and 11.1 miles north of the airport; Within a 7.2-mile radius (increased from the 6.8-mile radius) of Atlantic Municipal Airport, Atlantic, IA, with an E:\FR\FM\23SEP1.SGM 23SEP1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 185 / Friday, September 23, 2016 / Proposed Rules rmajette on DSK2TPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS extension to the northeast from the 7.2mile radius to 9.2 miles, and updating the geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database; Within a 6.5-mile radius (reduced from the previous 7.5-mile radius) of Belle Plaine Municipal Airport, Belle Plaine, IA, and correcting city designation from Belle Plane to Belle Plaine; By removing the 11-mile extension south of Creston Municipal Airport, Creston, IA; By removing the 7.4-mile extensions south and northwest of Estherville Municipal Airport, Estherville, IA; Within a 6.5-mile radius (reduced from the previous 7.6-mile radius) of Grinnell Regional Airport, Grinnell, IA, and updating the geographical coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database; By adding an extension to the north from the 6.4-mile radius to 9.8 miles of Guthrie County Regional Airport, Guthrie Center, IA; And within a 6.4-mile radius (reduced from the previous 7.3-mile radius) of Oelwein Municipal Airport, Oelwein, IA. Airspace reconfiguration is necessary due to the decommissioning of NDBs, cancellation of NDB approaches, and implementation of RNAV procedures at the above airports. Controlled airspace is necessary for the safety and management of the standard instrument approach procedures for IFR operations at the airports. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002 and 6005 of FAA Order 7400.11A, dated August 3, 2016, and effective September 15, 2016, 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. Regulatory Notices and Analyses 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, is non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative comments. It, therefore: (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 will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:12 Sep 22, 2016 Jkt 238001 65585 is certified that this rule, when promulgated, would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. That airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 6.7-mile radius of Ankeny Regional Airport, excluding that portion within the Des Moines Class C airspace area. Environmental Review This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures’’ prior to any FAA final regulatory action. Atlantic Municipal Airport, IA (Lat. 41°24′14″ N., long. 95°02′56″ W.)

ACTION: Proposed rule with request for comments. AGENCY: As part of a comprehensive review of agency practices related to the disclosure of records and information, the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) is updating its implementing rule under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). The proposed rule, which is modeled after a template provided by the U.S. Department of Justice, describes how to make a FOIA request to USTR and how the FOIA Office, which includes the USTR officials who are authorized to work on FOIA requests, processes requests for records. We are in the process of renaming and reorganizing part 2004 to include all of the rules governing disclosure of USTR records and information, and with this proposed rule, we are moving the FOIA rule into a new subpart B to part 2004. DATES: We must receive your written comments on or before November 22, 2016. SUMMARY: You should submit written comments through the Federal eRulemaking Portal: http:// www.regulations.gov. The docket number for this rulemaking is USTR– 2016–0015. USTR invites comments on all aspects of the proposed rule, and will revise the language as appropriate after taking all timely submitted comments into consideration. Copies of all comments will be available for public viewing at www.regulations.gov upon completion of processing. You can view a submission by entering the docket number USTR–2016–0015 in the search field at http:// www.regulations.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background Freedom of Information Act Policies and Procedures VerDate Sep<11>2014 provide, such as your name, mailing address, email address, and telephone number. Jkt 238001 USTR has undertaken a comprehensive review of agency practices related to the collection, use, protection and disclosure of USTR records and information. As a result of that review, USTR is updating it FOIA implementing rule. The FOIA, 5 U.S.C. 552, provides a right of access to certain records and information Federal agencies maintain and control. The FOIA requires each Federal agency to publish regulations describing how to submit a FOIA request and how the FOIA Office will process these requests. USTR’s current FOIA rule, codified at 15 CFR part 2004, was last revised in in 2008. See 73 FR 35063, June 20, 2008. Due to the passage of time and amendments to the FOIA, we are completely rewriting and updating the rule. USTR’s proposed rule is modeled after a template provided by the U.S. Department of Justice, and incorporates the practical experience of the FOIA staff. This rulemaking would move the FOIA rule to a new subpart B to part 2004, which we have proposed renaming and reorganizing to include all of the rules governing disclosure of USTR records and information. II. Section-by-Section Analysis Section 2004.1—Purpose and scope: This section describes the purpose of the regulation, which is to implement the FOIA, and explains general policies and procedures for requesters seeking access to records and information, and for processing requests by the USTR FOIA Office. Section 2004.2—Proactive disclosures: This section describes USTR information the public can access without filing a FOIA request. Section 2004.3—How to make a FOIA request: This section explains what an individual must do to submit a valid FOIA request to USTR and where a request should be sent. It also describes the information a requester must provide so USTR can identify the PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 records sought and process their request. Section 2004.4—Confidential commercial information: This section explains when and how a person or entity that submits information to USTR must identify confidential commercial information. It also describes how USTR staff will handle such information. Section 2004.5—The USTR staff that processes FOIA requests: The USTR FOIA Office handles all FOIA requests. The section explains when the FOIA staff will consult with or refer a request to another Federal agency. Section 2004.6—When we will respond to your request: This section describes the period of time within which USTR will respond to requests, i.e., ordinarily within twenty working days after the date the request is perfected. It provides for an extension if there are unusual circumstances and explains the requirements for expedited processing. The section also describes our multitrack processing system. Section 2004.7—What our response will include: This section explains that we will respond to your request in writing either with the requested records or a detailed explanation of the reasons why all of the requested records were not disclosed. We also will provide information about the right of appeal and the mediation services offered by the Office of Government Information Services of the National Archives and Records Administration. Section 2004.8—What you can do if you are dissatisfied with our response: This section describes when and how a requester may appeal a determination on a FOIA request and how and within what period of time USTR will make a determination on an appeal. Section 2004.9—Fees: This section describes the different categories of requesters and the types and amounts of fees we may assess to process and respond to a FOIA request. III. Regulatory Flexibility Act USTR has considered the impact of the proposed rule and determined that if adopted as a final rule it is not likely to have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small business entities because it is applicable only to USTR’s internal operations and legal obligations. See 5 U.S.C. 601 et seq. IV. Paperwork Reduction Act The proposed rule does not contain any information collection requirement that requires the approval of the Office of Management and Budget under the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.).

SUMMARY: This action proposes to modify Class E surface area at Ankeny 
Regional Airport, Ankeny, IA; and Class

[[Page 65584]]

E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Algona 
Municipal Airport, Algona, IA; Ankeny Regional Airport; Atlantic 
Municipal Airport, Atlantic, IA; Belle Plaine Municipal Airport, Belle 
Plaine, IA; Creston Municipal Airport, Creston, IA; Estherville 
Municipal Airport, Estherville, IA; Grinnell Regional Airport, 
Grinnell, IA; Guthrie County Regional Airport, Guthrie Center, IA; and 
Oelwein Municipal Airport, Oelwein, IA. Decommissioning of non-
directional radio beacons (NDB), cancellation of NDB approaches, and 
implementation of area navigation (RNAV) procedures have made this 
action necessary for the safety and management of Instrument Flight 
Rules (IFR) operations at the above airports. Additionally, the 
geographic coordinates for Algona Municipal Airport, Atlantic Municipal 
Airport, and Grinnell Regional Airport would be adjusted to coincide 
with the FAA's aeronautical database. The name of Belle Plaine, IA, 
would also be adjusted to correct a misspelling in the legal 
description.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Authority for This Rulemaking

    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, 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 would amend Class E surface area at Ankeny Regional Airport, 
Ankeny, IA; and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface at Algona Municipal Airport, Algona, IA; Ankeny Regional 
Airport; Atlantic Municipal Airport, Atlantic, IA; Belle Plaine 
Municipal Airport, Belle Plaine, IA; Creston Municipal Airport, 
Creston, IA; Estherville Municipal Airport, Estherville, IA; Grinnell 
Regional Airport, Grinnell, IA; Guthrie County Regional Airport, 
Guthrie Center, IA; and Oelwein Municipal Airport, Oelwein, IA.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.11A, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 3, 2016, and effective 
September 15, 2016. FAA Order 7400.11A is publicly available as listed 
in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11A lists 
Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and 
reporting points.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by modifying:

    Class E surface area airspace within a 4.2-mile radius (increased 
from the 4-mile radius) of Ankeny Regional Airport, Ankeny, IA;
    Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface:
    By removing the 10-mile extension northwest of Algona Municipal 
Airport, Algona, IA, and updating the geographic coordinates of the 
airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database;
    Within a 6.7-mile radius (reduced from the previous 7.1-mile 
radius) of Ankeny Regional Airport, Ankeny, IA, and removing the 
extensions 9.3 miles northeast and 11.1 miles north of the airport;
    Within a 7.2-mile radius (increased from the 6.8-mile radius) of 
Atlantic Municipal Airport, Atlantic, IA, with an

[[Page 65585]]

extension to the northeast from the 7.2-mile radius to 9.2 miles, and 
updating the geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the 
FAA's aeronautical database;
    Within a 6.5-mile radius (reduced from the previous 7.5-mile 
radius) of Belle Plaine Municipal Airport, Belle Plaine, IA, and 
correcting city designation from Belle Plane to Belle Plaine;
    By removing the 11-mile extension south of Creston Municipal 
Airport, Creston, IA;
    By removing the 7.4-mile extensions south and northwest of 
Estherville Municipal Airport, Estherville, IA;
    Within a 6.5-mile radius (reduced from the previous 7.6-mile 
radius) of Grinnell Regional Airport, Grinnell, IA, and updating the 
geographical coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA's 
aeronautical database;
    By adding an extension to the north from the 6.4-mile radius to 9.8 
miles of Guthrie County Regional Airport, Guthrie Center, IA;
    And within a 6.4-mile radius (reduced from the previous 7.3-mile 
radius) of Oelwein Municipal Airport, Oelwein, IA.
    Airspace reconfiguration is necessary due to the decommissioning of 
NDBs, cancellation of NDB approaches, and implementation of RNAV 
procedures at the above airports. Controlled airspace is necessary for 
the safety and management of the standard instrument approach 
procedures for IFR operations at the airports.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6002 and 
6005 of FAA Order 7400.11A, dated August 3, 2016, and effective 
September 15, 2016, 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.

Regulatory Notices and Analyses

    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, is 
non-controversial and unlikely to result in adverse or negative 
comments. It, therefore: (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 will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this rule, when promulgated, would not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities 
under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Environmental Review

    This proposal will be subject to an environmental analysis in 
accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies 
and Procedures'' prior to any FAA final regulatory action.
