Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 116 / Monday, June 17, 2019 / Rules and Regulations (a) Effective Date This AD is effective June 17, 2019 to all persons except those persons to whom it was made immediately effective by Emergency AD 2019–08–51, issued on April 18, 2019, which contained the requirements of this amendment. (b) Affected ADs None. (c) Applicability This AD applies to Cirrus Design Corporation Model SF50 airplanes, all serial numbers, certificated in standard category. (d) Subject Joint Aircraft System Component (JASC)/ Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 27; Flight Controls. (e) Unsafe Condition This AD was prompted by Cirrus reporting three incidents of the stall warning and protection system (SWPS) or Electronic Stability & Protection (ESP) System engaging when not appropriate. The SWPS and ESP may engage even when sufficient airspeed and proper angle of attack (AOA) exists for normal flight. SWPS includes the stall warning alarm, stick shaker and stick pusher. ESP includes under speed protection (USP). The SWPS and ESP engaging could potentially result in a STALL WARNING crew alert (CAS) message activation, accompanied by an audio alarm and stick shaker activation, followed possibly by either low speed ESP/USP engaging and/or the stick pusher engaging. The pilot will also observe the dynamic and color-coded (Red) airspeed awareness ranges displaying the stall band, regardless of actual indicated airspeed. These conditions, if not addressed, could result in the flight crew having difficulty controlling the airplane, lead to excessive nose-down attitude, significant altitude loss, and possible impact with terrain. khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with RULES (f) Compliance Comply with this AD within the compliance times specified, unless already done. (g) Corrective Action (1) Before further flight after the effective date of this AD, replace the AOA sensor with an improved AOA sensor, Aerosonic part number 4677–03 Mod 1 or Cirrus part number 32159–004 in accordance with section 11. ACCOMPLISHMENT INSTRUCTIONS, paragraphs A, B, and C of Cirrus Design Corporation SF50 Service Bulletin Number: SB5X–34–03, dated April 16, 2019.

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 the 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 modifies the National Airspace System route structure as necessary to preserve the safe and efficient flow of air traffic. khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with RULES History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking for Docket No. FAA–2018–0220 in the Federal Register (83 FR 12887; March 26, 2018), modifying V–78 and removing V–224 in the vicinity of Manistique, MI, due to the planned decommissioning of the Schoolcraft County, MI, VOR/DME. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. No comments were received. VOR Federal airways are published in paragraph 6010(a) 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 VOR Federal airways listed in this document will be subsequently published in the Order. Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference This document amends FAA Order 7400.11C, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 13, VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:54 Jun 14, 2019 Jkt 247001 2018, and effective September 15, 2018. FAA Order 7400.11C is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11C lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. The Rule The FAA is amending Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying the description of VOR Federal airway V–78 and removing VOR Federal airway V–224, due to the planned decommissioning of the Schoolcraft County, MI, VOR. The VOR Federal airway changes are described below. V–78: V–78 extends between the Huron, SD, VOR/Tactical Air Navigation (VORTAC) and the Saginaw, MI, VOR/ DME. The airway segment between the Escanaba, MI, VOR/DME and the Pellston, MI, VORTAC is removed. The unaffected portions of the airway remain as charted. V–224: V–224 extends between the Sawyer, MI, VOR/DME and the Schoolcraft County, MI, VOR/DME. The airway is removed in its entirety. The radials in the route description below are unchanged and stated in True degrees. 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. 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 only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, does not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. Policies and Procedures, paragraph 5– 6.5a, which categorically excludes from further environmental impact review rulemaking actions that designate or modify classes of airspace areas, airways, routes, and reporting points (see 14 CFR part 71, Designation of Class A, B, C, D, and E Airspace Areas; Air Traffic Service Routes; and Reporting Points). As such, this action is not expected to result in any potentially significant environmental impacts. In accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, paragraph 5–2 regarding Extraordinary Circumstances, the FAA has reviewed this action for factors and circumstances in which a normally categorically excluded action may have a significant environmental impact requiring further analysis. The FAA has determined that no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment or environmental impact study.

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 
the 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 modifies the National Airspace System route structure 
as necessary to preserve the safe and efficient flow of air traffic.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking for Docket No. 
FAA-2018-0220 in the Federal Register (83 FR 12887; March 26, 2018), 
modifying V-78 and removing V-224 in the vicinity of Manistique, MI, 
due to the planned decommissioning of the Schoolcraft County, MI, VOR/
DME. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking 
effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. No comments were 
received.
    VOR Federal airways are published in paragraph 6010(a) 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 VOR Federal 
airways listed in this document will be subsequently published in the 
Order.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document amends 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 document. FAA Order 7400.11C lists Class A, 
B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and 
reporting points.

The Rule

    The FAA is amending Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 by modifying the description of VOR Federal airway V-78 and 
removing VOR Federal airway V-224, due to the planned decommissioning 
of the Schoolcraft County, MI, VOR. The VOR Federal airway changes are 
described below.
    V-78: V-78 extends between the Huron, SD, VOR/Tactical Air 
Navigation (VORTAC) and the Saginaw, MI, VOR/DME. The airway segment 
between the Escanaba, MI, VOR/DME and the Pellston, MI, VORTAC is 
removed. The unaffected portions of the airway remain as charted.
    V-224: V-224 extends between the Sawyer, MI, VOR/DME and the 
Schoolcraft County, MI, VOR/DME. The airway is removed in its entirety.
    The radials in the route description below are unchanged and stated 
in True degrees.

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. 
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 only affects air traffic procedures 
and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, 
does not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of 
small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Environmental Review

    The FAA has determined that this action of modifying one VOR 
Federal airway and removing another near Manistique, MI qualifies for 
categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act and 
its implementing regulations at 40 CFR part 1500, and in accordance 
with FAA Order 1050.1F, Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures, 
paragraph 5-6.5a, which categorically excludes from further 
environmental impact review rulemaking actions that designate or modify 
classes of airspace areas, airways, routes, and reporting points (see 
14 CFR part 71, Designation of Class A, B, C, D, and E Airspace Areas; 
Air Traffic Service Routes; and Reporting Points). As such, this action 
is not expected to result in any potentially significant environmental 
impacts. In accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, paragraph 5-2 regarding 
Extraordinary Circumstances, the FAA has reviewed this action for 
factors and circumstances in which a normally categorically excluded 
action may have a significant environmental impact requiring further 
analysis. The FAA has determined that no extraordinary circumstances 
exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment or 
environmental impact study.
