(h) Inspection of the NLG Fork for Cracks (1) If you determine that a NLG fork P/N 100–410–7001 (type A) is installed during the inspection required in paragraph (g) of this AD, within 25 hours TIS after the effective date of this AD and repetitively thereafter at intervals not to exceed 100 hours TIS, do a fluorescent penetrant, dye penetrant, or open-hole eddy current inspection of the NLG fork for cracks following section 5. Instructions in Quest Aircraft Field Service Instruction FSI–147, Revision 00 (not dated). (2) If you find any cracks of the NLG fork during any inspection required in paragraph (h)(1) of this AD, before further flight, replace the NLG fork with a NLG fork P/N 100–410– 7013 (type B) following section 5. Instructions in Quest Aircraft Field Service Instruction FSI–147, Revision 00 (not dated). Replacement of the NLG fork with a NLG fork P/N 100–410–7013 (type B) terminates the repetitive inspections required in paragraphs (h)(1) and (i)(1) of this AD. (k) Restriction of NLG Fork P/N 100–410– 7001 (Type A) Installation rmajette on DSKBCKNHB2PROD with PROPOSALS (i) Inspection of the Shimmy Damper Bracket (1) If you have not replaced a NLG fork P/N 100–410–7001 (type A) per the initial inspection and replacement requirements in paragraph (h) of this AD, then within 25 hours TIS after the effective date of this AD and repetitively thereafter at intervals not to exceed 100 hours TIS (until the NLG fork is replaced with a P/N 100–410–7013 (type B fork)), inspect the shimmy damper bracket for looseness following pages 32_110 and 32_111, section 3252, Shimmy Damper, found in Chapter 32, Landing Gear, of Quest Aircraft Company Kodiak 100 Maintenance Manual, Revision No. 21, dated February 15, 2017. (2) If a loose shimmy damper bracket is found during any inspection required in paragraph (i)(1) of this AD, rework the shimmy damper bracket with interference-fit bolts following Quest Aircraft Field Service Instruction FSI–146, Revision 00 (not dated). Reworking the shimmy damper bracket with the interference-fit bolts terminates the repetitive inspections required in paragraph (i)(1) of this AD. (3) If any other damaged (loose, leaking, corrosion, worn, etc.) components are found in the shimmy damper system during any inspection required in paragraph (i)(1) of this AD, before further flight, replace damaged components as necessary following pages 32_110 and 32_111, section 3252, Shimmy Damper, found in Chapter 32, Landing Gear, of Quest Aircraft Company Kodiak 100 Maintenance Manual, Revision No. 21, dated February 15, 2017. (j) Optional Terminating Action In lieu of the NLG fork and shimmy damper bracket inspections required in paragraphs (h)(1) and (i)(1) of this AD, you may replace the NLG fork P/N 100–410–7001 (type A) with a NLG fork P/N 100–410–7013 (type B) following section 5.

If a NLG fork P/N 100–410–7013 (type B) is removed from the airplane for any reason (for example, to install floats), you must reinstall a NLG fork P/N 100–410–7013 (type B) when operating with wheels.

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 to amend Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by revising the legal description for Class E airspace at Duplin County Airport, Kenansville, NC. The FAA proposes to revise the legal description to include only the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface at Duplin County Airport within a 6.8-mile (from a 6.4-mile) radius of the airport. Airspace reconfiguration is necessary due to the decommissioning of the Kenan NDB, and cancellation of the NDB approach. These changes would enhance the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. The FAA also proposes to update the geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database.

The Class E airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. Regulatory Notices and Analyses The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. 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 proposed rule, when promulgated, will 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.

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 to amend Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations 
(14 CFR) part 71 by revising the legal description for Class E airspace 
at Duplin County Airport, Kenansville, NC. The FAA proposes to revise 
the legal description to include only the Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet or more above the surface at Duplin County Airport 
within a 6.8-mile (from a 6.4-mile) radius of the airport. Airspace 
reconfiguration is necessary due to the decommissioning of the Kenan 
NDB, and cancellation of the NDB approach. These changes would enhance 
the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. The FAA 
also proposes to update the geographic coordinates of the airport to 
coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database.
    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 designation listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in the Order.

Regulatory Notices and Analyses

    The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves 
an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. 
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 proposed rule, when promulgated, will 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.
