The Proposed Amendment Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the FAA proposes to amend 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): ■ The Boeing Company: Docket No. FAA– 2017–1099; Product Identifier 2017– NM–093–AD. (a) Comments Due Date We must receive comments by January 22, 2018. (b) Affected ADs None. (c) Applicability This AD applies to The Boeing Company Model 767–200 and –300 series airplanes, as identified in Boeing Alert Requirements Bulletin 767–53A0278 RB, dated June 30, 2017, certificated in any category. (d) Subject Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 53, Fuselage. jstallworth on DSKBBY8HB2PROD with PROPOSALS (e) Unsafe Condition This AD was prompted by a report of a crack on the transition radius of the station (STA) 883.5 frame inner chord and an additional crack indication at a fastener hole in the frame inner chord common to a material review board (MRB) filler that extended above the frame-to-stub-beam joint. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct cracking of the frame inner chord, which could result in the inability of one or more overwing stub frames between STA 808 and STA 933, each a principal structural element, to sustain limit load; this condition could adversely affect the structural integrity of the airplane. (f) Compliance Comply with this AD within the compliance times specified, unless already done. (g) Required Actions Except as required by paragraph (h) of this AD: At the applicable times specified in the ‘‘Compliance’’ paragraph of Boeing Alert Requirements Bulletin 767–53A0278 RB, dated June 30, 2017, do all applicable actions identified in, and in accordance with, the Accomplishment Instructions of Boeing Alert VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:39 Dec 05, 2017 Jkt 244001 Requirements Bulletin 767–53A0278 RB, dated June 30, 2017.

(h) Exceptions to Service Information Specifications (1) For purposes of determining compliance with the requirements of this AD, the phrase ‘‘the effective date of this AD’’ may be substituted for ‘‘the original issue date of Requirements Bulletin 767–53A0278 RB’’ as specified in Boeing Alert Requirements Bulletin 767–53A0278 RB, dated June 30, 2017. (2) Where Boeing Alert Requirements Bulletin 767–53A0278 RB, dated June 30, 2017, specifies contacting Boeing, this AD requires repair using a method approved in accordance with the procedures specified in paragraph (i) of this AD. (3) For airplanes identified as Group 1, Configuration 1, in Boeing Alert Requirements Bulletin 767–53A0278 RB, dated June 30, 2017, that have been modified to a freighter configuration: The actions specified in Boeing Alert Requirements Bulletin 767–53A0278 RB, dated June 30, 2017, for Group 1, Configuration 2, must be done instead of the actions for Group 1, Configuration 1, except as required by paragraph (h)(2) of this AD.

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.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.11B, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 3, 2017, and effective 
September 15, 2017. FAA Order 7400.11B is publicly available as listed 
in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11B 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 establishing Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface at Rangely Airport, Rangely, CO, 
within an area approximately 10 miles wide, from north to south, and 
extending to approximately 10 miles east and 12 miles west of the 
airport.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of 
FAA Order 7400.11B, dated August 3, 2017, and effective September 15, 
2017, 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.
