Download as PDF 58142 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 236 / Monday, December 11, 2017 / Proposed Rules information found in paragraph (k)(2) of this AD. (d) Subject Joint Aircraft System Component (JASC)/ Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 32, Landing Gear. (e) Unsafe Condition This AD was prompted by information received from UTC that brake pad wear indicator pins were set incorrectly. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct wear indicator pins that were set at an incorrect length. The unsafe condition, if not corrected, could result in brake pad wear beyond the acceptable limits without indication and consequent loss of braking ability, which could lead to a runway excursion. (f) Compliance Comply with this AD within the compliance times specified, unless already done. (g) Inspection (1) For Model 510 airplanes: Within 75 landings after the effective date of this AD or within 90 days after the effective date of this AD, whichever occurs first, inspect the brake pad wear indicator pins, P/N 2–1706–1, for correct length following UTC Service Bulletin 2–1706–1–32–1, Revision 1, July 18, 2017. (2) For Models 680 and 680A airplanes: Within 200 landings after the effective date of this AD or within 90 days after the effective date of this AD, whichever occurs first, inspect the brake pad wear indicator pins, P/N 2–1675–1, for correct length following UTC Service Bulletin 2–1675–32– 2, Revision 1, July 18, 2017. (3) The compliance times in this AD are presented in landings. If you do not keep a record of the total number of landings, then multiply the total number of hours time-inservice (TIS) after the effective date by 0.85 for Model 510 airplanes and multiply the total number of hours TIS after the effective date by 0.73 for Models 680 and 680A airplanes to estimate the number of landings. daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with PROPOSALS (h) Replacement If any brake pad wear indicator pin is found to have an incorrect length during the inspection required in paragraph (g) of this AD, before further flight, contact Textron for FAA-approved replacement instructions approved specifically for this AD. You may use the contact information listed in paragraph (k)(2) of this AD, as applicable. (i) Special Flight Permit We allow a special flight permit per 14 CFR 39.23 for the replacement of the brake assembly required in paragraph (h) of this AD provided the wear indicator pin length extends a minimum of 0.200 inches beyond the brake assembly housing with the brakes engaged. (j) Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs) (1) The Manager, Wichita ACO Branch, FAA, has the authority to approve AMOCs for this AD, if requested using the procedures VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:10 Dec 08, 2017 Jkt 244001 found in 14 CFR 39.19. In accordance with 14 CFR 39.19, send your request to your principal inspector or local Flight Standards District Office, as appropriate. If sending information directly to the manager of the certification office, send it to the attention of the person identified in paragraph (k)(1) of this AD.

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 Manley Hot Springs Airport, 
Manley Hot Springs, AK. This airspace is necessary to accommodate the 
development of RNAV (IFR) operations in standard instrument approach 
and departure procedures at the airport. Class E airspace would be 
established within a 6.3-mile radius of Manley Hot Springs 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.
