Download as PDF 22586 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 79 / Thursday, April 23, 2020 / Rules and Regulations lotter on DSKBCFDHB2PROD with RULES specified compliance time unless it has already been accomplished prior to that time. (f) Required Actions (1) Before the first flight of each day and at intervals not to exceed 10 hours time-inservice (TIS), check the MGB magnetic chip detector plug (chip detector) for any sludge. Also, check for dark oil in the MGB oil-sight glass. The actions required by this paragraph may be performed by an owner/operator (pilot) holding at least a private pilot certificate and must be entered into the aircraft records showing compliance with this AD in accordance with Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) §§ 43.9 (a)(1) through (4) and 14 CFR 91.417(a)(2)(v). The record must be maintained as required by 14 CFR 91.417, 121.380, or 135.439. ‘‘Sludge’’ is a deposit on the chip detector that is typically dark in color and in the form of a film or paste, as compared to metal chips or particles normally found on a chip detector. Sludge may have both metallic or nonmetallic properties, may consist of copper (pinion bearing), magnesium (pump case), and steel (pinion) from the oil pump, and a nonmetallic substance from the chemical breakdown of the oil as it interacts with the metal. (i) Before further flight, if any sludge is found on the chip detector, remove, open, and inspect the pump. (ii) Before further flight, if the oil appears dark in color when it is observed through the MGB oil-sight glass, take an oil sample. If the oil taken in the sample is dark or dark purple, before further flight, remove, open, and inspect the pump. (2) Within 25 hours TIS, after operating both engines at normal operating revolutions per minute (RPM) for at least 20 minutes to ensure the MGB oil temperature has stabilized, inspect the oil pump for wear by following the Accomplishment Instructions, paragraph 2.B.2., steps 1. through 6., of Eurocopter Alert Service Bulletin (ASB) No. 05.00.51, dated July 9, 2007 (ASB 05.00.51), or Airbus Helicopters ASB No. 05.00.51, Revision 1, dated July 29, 2015 (ASB 05.00.51 Rev 1). (i) Record the outside air temperature (OAT) and rotor speed (NR RPM) and plot the point at which they intersect using the graph in Figure 1 or 2 of ASB 05.00.51 or ASB 05.00.51 Rev 1. (ii) If the point on the graph at the intersection of the recorded OAT and the NR RPM falls within: (A) Zone 3—Before further flight, replace the MGB and pump with an airworthy MGB and pump. (B) Zone 2—At intervals not to exceed 25 hours TIS, repeat the inspection procedures by following the Accomplishment Instructions, paragraph 2.B.2, steps 1. through 6., of ASB 05.00.51 or ASB 05.00.51 Rev 1. After being classified in ‘‘Zone 2,’’ you must obtain two successive inspections separated by at least 24 hours TIS that fall within Zone 1 before you can begin to inspect at intervals not to exceed 110 hours TIS by following paragraph (f)(2)(ii)(C) of this AD for Zone 1. (C) Zone 1—At intervals not to exceed 110 hours TIS, repeat the inspection procedures VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:13 Apr 22, 2020 Jkt 250001 by following the Accomplishment Instructions, paragraph 2.B.2., steps 1. through 6., of ASB 05.00.51 or ASB 05.00.51 Rev 1. (iii) Compliance with paragraphs (f)(2)(i) and (ii) of this AD constitutes terminating action for the checks and inspections required by paragraph (f)(1) of this AD. (3) As an optional terminating action for the requirements in this AD, alter the lubrication system for the MGB in accordance with the Accomplishment Instructions, paragraphs 3.B.2.a. through 3.B.3 of Airbus Helicopters Service Bulletin No. AS355–63.00.25, Revision 1, dated July 29, 2015, or Revision 2, dated June 22, 2017. Mineral oil 0–155 is required after compliance with this alteration. Note 1 to paragraph (f)(3) of this AD: Airbus Helicopters identifies alteration of the lubrication system as MOD 077222. (g) Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs) (1) The Manager, Safety Management Section, Rotorcraft Standards Branch, FAA, may approve AMOCs for this AD. Send your proposal to: James Blyn, Aviation Safety Engineer, Regulations & Policy Section, Rotorcraft Standards Branch, FAA, 10101 Hillwood Pkwy., Fort Worth, TX 76177; telephone 817–222–5110; email 9–ASW– FTW–AMOC-Requests@faa.gov. (2) For operations conducted under a 14 CFR part 119 operating certificate or under 14 CFR part 91, subpart K, the FAA suggests that you notify your principal inspector, or lacking a principal inspector, the manager of the local flight standards district office or certificate holding district office, before operating any aircraft complying with this AD through an AMOC.

The effective date for that final rule is May 21, 2020. Subsequent to the final rule, due to COVID–19 pandemic concerns and response considerations, ATC facilities across the National Airspace System (NAS) have adjusted controller scheduling and reduced staffing to reduce pandemic impacts. This has resulted in controller training and briefing challenges while they perform essential ATC duties supporting the NAS. As a result, some ATC facilities affected by the rule amendments were unable to complete the required prerequisite controller training necessary to safely implement new air traffic procedures necessary to adopt the regulatory air traffic service (ATS) route amendments, and accompanying arrival procedure actions, to support the May 21, 2020, effective date. To facilitate the safe and continuous use of existing air traffic procedures, and allow sufficient time for ATC facilities to complete the required prerequisite training necessary to safely implement the new air traffic procedures, the planned decommissioning of the Robinson, KS, VOR has been slipped to September 10, 2020.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    The FAA published a final rule in the Federal Register for Docket 
No. FAA-2019-0677 (85 FR 13481, March 9, 2020), removing VOR Federal 
airway V-61 in its entirety and extending RNAV route T-286 in its place 
due to the planned decommissioning of the Robinson, KS, VOR NAVAID. The 
effective date for that final rule is May 21, 2020. Subsequent to the 
final rule, due to COVID-19 pandemic concerns and response 
considerations, ATC facilities across the National Airspace System 
(NAS) have adjusted controller scheduling and reduced staffing to 
reduce pandemic impacts. This has resulted in controller training and 
briefing challenges while they perform essential ATC duties supporting 
the NAS. As a result, some ATC facilities affected by the rule 
amendments were unable to complete the required pre-requisite 
controller training necessary to safely implement new air traffic 
procedures necessary to adopt the regulatory air traffic service (ATS) 
route amendments, and accompanying arrival procedure actions, to 
support the May 21, 2020, effective date.
    To facilitate the safe and continuous use of existing air traffic 
procedures, and allow sufficient time for ATC facilities to complete 
the required prerequisite training necessary to safely implement the 
new air traffic procedures, the planned decommissioning of the 
Robinson, KS, VOR has been slipped to September 10, 2020. Therefore, 
the rule removing V-61 and amending T-286 is delayed to coincide with 
that date.
    VOR Federal airways are published in paragraph 6010(a) and RNAV T-
routes are published in paragraph 6011 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 VOR Federal airways and RNAV T-route 
listed in this document will be subsequently published in the Order.
    FAA Order 7400.11, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, is 
published yearly and effective on September 15.

Good Cause for No Notice and Comment

    Section 553(b)(3)(B) of Title 5, United States Code, (the 
Administrative Procedure Act) authorizes agencies to dispense with 
notice and comment procedures for rules when the agency for ``good 
cause'' finds that those procedures are ``impracticable, unnecessary, 
or contrary to the public interest.'' Under this section, an agency, 
upon finding good cause, may issue a final rule without seeking comment 
prior to the rulemaking. The FAA finds that prior notice and public 
comment to this final rule is unnecessary due to the brief length of 
the extension of the effective date and the fact that there is no 
substantive change to the rule.''

Delay of Effective Date

Accordingly, pursuant to the authority delegated to me, the effective 
date of the final rule, Airspace Docket 19-ACE-5, as published in the 
Federal Register on March 9, 2020 (85 FR 13481), FR Doc. 2020-04657, is 
hereby delayed until September 10, 2020.
