(e) Unsafe Condition This AD was prompted by reports of two in-flight shutdowns due to oil leaking from the connection between the LP10 oil supply tube and the fuel oil cooler (FOC). The FAA is issuing this AD to prevent failure of the LP10 oil supply tube, engine fire and damage to the airplane. The unsafe condition, if not addressed, could result in engine fire and damage to the airplane. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with RULES (f) Compliance Comply with this AD within the compliance times specified, unless already done. (g) Required Actions (1) Within 300 engine cycles from the effective date of this AD, perform an initial gap inspection with a 0.001 inch feeler gauge between the LP10 oil supply tube, part number (P/N) 5312624–01, and the FOC, P/ N 5306769. (i) If any gap is found, remove the LP10 oil supply tube and the FOC and replace with parts eligible for installation prior to further flight. (ii) If no gap is found, repeat this inspection every 850 engine cycles since the previous inspection. (2) At the next shop visit after the effective date of this AD, remove the LP10 oil supply tube, P/N 5312624–01, and the FOC, P/N 5306769, and replace with parts eligible for installation. 17:38 Feb 20, 2020 Jkt 250001 (1) The Manager, ECO Branch, FAA, has the authority to approve AMOCs for this AD, if requested using the procedures found in 14 CFR 39.19.

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.

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.

[[Page 10050]]

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 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 would establish 
Class E airspace at Alpine Airport, Alpine, WY, to ensure the safety 
and management of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the 
airport.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (84 FR 67383; December 10, 2019) for Docket No. FAA-2019-0811 
to establish Class E airspace at Alpine Airport, Alpine, WY. Interested 
parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by 
submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. One comment was 
received. The commenter recommended the airport should be 
decommissioned. The comment is not germane to the establishment of 
airspace to contain IFR procedures.
    Class E5 airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of 
FAA Order 7400.11D, dated August 8, 2019, and effective September 15, 
2019, 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.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document amends FAA Order 7400.11D, Airspace Designations and 
Reporting Points, dated August 8, 2019, and effective September 15, 
2019. FAA Order 7400.11D is publicly available as listed in the 
ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11D lists Class A, 
B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and 
reporting points.

The Rule

    This amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 71 establishing Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet or 
more above the surface at the Alpine Airport, Alpine, WY. The Class E 
airspace supports the airport's transition from VFR to IFR operations. 
Specifically, it will, to the extent possible, contain IFR departures 
until reaching 1,200 feet above the surface and IFR arrivals when 
descending below 1,500 feet above the surface.
    The first airspace area extends upward from 700 feet above the 
surface within a 4.0-mile radius to the airport, and within 1 mile each 
side of the 179[deg] bearing from the airport, extending from the 4.0-
mile radius to 5.8 south of the airport, and within 1.8 miles each side 
of the 321[deg] bearing from the airport, extending from the 4.0-mile 
radius to 10.5 miles northwest of the airport.
    The second airspace area extends upward from 1,200 feet above the 
surface within a 13-mile radius of the airport.
    FAA Order 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is 
published yearly and effective on September 15.

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

    The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical 
exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance 
with FAA Order 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies and 
Procedures,'' paragraph 5-6.5a. This airspace action is not expected to 
cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no 
extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an 
environmental assessment.
