(d) Subject Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 78, Engine exhaust. (e) Reason This AD was prompted by a report of fatigue cracking in the latch beam gussets on a certain thrust reverser (T/R). We are issuing this AD to address this condition, which, if not detected and corrected, could lead to crack propagation until part failure and potential departure of the T/R cascade during T/R operation, which could result in damage to the airplane and hazards to persons or property on the ground. (f) Compliance Comply with this AD within the compliance times specified, unless already done. (g) Requirements Except as specified in paragraph (h) of this AD: Comply with all required actions and compliance times specified in, and in accordance with, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD 2018–0227, dated October 22, 2018 (‘‘EASA AD 2018–0227’’). amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with PROPOSALS1 (h) Exceptions to EASA AD 2018–0227 (1) For purposes of determining compliance with the requirements of this AD: Where EASA AD 2018–0227 refers to its effective date, this AD requires using the effective date of this AD. (2) The ‘‘Remarks’’ section of EASA AD 2018–0227 does not apply to this AD. (i) Other FAA AD Provisions The following provisions also apply to this AD: (1) Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs): The Manager, International Section, Transport Standards Branch, FAA, has the authority to approve AMOCs for this AD, if requested using the procedures 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 International Section, send it to the attention of the person identified in paragraph (j)(2) of this AD. Information may be emailed to: 9-ANM-116-AMOCREQUESTS@faa.gov. Before using any approved AMOC, notify your appropriate principal inspector, or lacking a principal inspector, the manager of the local flight standards district office/certificate holding district office. (2) Contacting the Manufacturer: For any requirement in this AD to obtain instructions from a manufacturer, the instructions must be accomplished using a method approved by the Manager, International Section, Transport Standards Branch, FAA; or EASA; or Airbus SAS’s EASA Design Organization Approval (DOA). If approved by the DOA, the approval must include the DOAauthorized signature. (3) Required for Compliance (RC): For any service information referenced in EASA AD 2018–0227 that contain RC procedures and VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:22 Dec 27, 2018 Jkt 247001 tests: Except as required by paragraph (i)(2) of this AD, RC procedures and tests must be done to comply with this AD; any procedures or tests that are not identified as RC are recommended. Those procedures and tests that are not identified as RC may be deviated from using accepted methods in accordance with the operator’s maintenance or inspection program without obtaining approval of an AMOC, provided the procedures and tests identified as RC can be done and the airplane can be put back in an airworthy condition. Any substitutions or changes to procedures or tests identified as RC require approval of an AMOC.

FAA Order 7400.11C is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section of this proposed rule. FAA Order 7400.11C 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 to amend RNAV route T–299 and establish T–318 and T–360. The proposed route changes are described below. T–299: T–299 currently extends between the UCREK, VA, waypoint (WP), (located south of Staunton, VA), and the SCAPE, PA, fix (located east of Chambersburg, PA). The proposed change would extend the route to the OBEPE, VA, fix (approximately 11 NM southwest of the UCREK WP) providing connectivity to VOR Federal airway V– 290. T–318: T–318 is a proposed new route that would extend between the JARLO, WV, WP and the SHERL, NY, WP. This would provide RNAV routing from the Charleston, WV, area, eastward to Virginia, then northeastward to the New York City area. T–360: T–360 is a proposed new route that would extend between West Virginia and the Richmond, VA, area. It would also provide connectivity to routes T–299 and T–318. United States Area Navigation Routes are published in paragraph 6011 of FAA Order 7400.11C, dated August 13, 2018, and effective September 15, 2018, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The RNAV routes listed in this document would be subsequently published 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 Department of Transportation (DOT) Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 67161 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. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air).

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.11C, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 13, 2018 and effective 
September 15, 2018. FAA Order 7400.11C is publicly available as listed 
in the ADDRESSES section of this proposed rule. FAA Order 7400.11C 
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 to amend RNAV route T-299 and establish T-
318 and T-360. The proposed route changes are described below.
    T-299: T-299 currently extends between the UCREK, VA, waypoint 
(WP), (located south of Staunton, VA), and the SCAPE, PA, fix (located 
east of Chambersburg, PA). The proposed change would extend the route 
to the OBEPE, VA, fix (approximately 11 NM southwest of the UCREK WP) 
providing connectivity to VOR Federal airway V-290.
    T-318: T-318 is a proposed new route that would extend between the 
JARLO, WV, WP and the SHERL, NY, WP. This would provide RNAV routing 
from the Charleston, WV, area, eastward to Virginia, then northeastward 
to the New York City area.
    T-360: T-360 is a proposed new route that would extend between West 
Virginia and the Richmond, VA, area. It would also provide connectivity 
to routes T-299 and T-318.
    United States Area Navigation Routes are published in paragraph 
6011 of FAA Order 7400.11C, dated August 13, 2018, and effective 
September 15, 2018, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. 
The RNAV routes listed in this document would be subsequently published 
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 
Department of Transportation (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.
