Proposed Modification of Class D and Establishment of Class E Airspace; Hayward, CA, 57170-57172 [2020-20223]

Download as PDF 57170 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 179 / Tuesday, September 15, 2020 / Proposed Rules responsibilities among the various levels of government. For the reasons discussed above, I certify this proposed regulation: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866, (2) Will not affect intrastate aviation in Alaska, and (3) Will not have a significant economic impact, positive or negative, on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by reference, Safety. The Proposed Amendment Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the FAA proposes to amend 14 CFR part 39 as follows: PART 39—AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES 1. The authority citation for part 39 continues to read as follows: ■ Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701. § 39.13 [Amended] 2. The FAA amends § 39.13 by adding the following new airworthiness directive (AD): ■ Saab AB, Support and Services (Formerly Known as Saab AB, Saab Aeronautics): Docket No. FAA–2020–0840; Project Identifier MCAI–2020–00907–T. (a) Comments Due Date The FAA must receive comments by October 30, 2020. (b) Affected ADs None. (c) Applicability This AD applies to all Saab AB, Support and Services (Formerly Known as Saab AB, Saab Aeronautics) Model 340A (SAAB/ SF340A) and SAAB 340B airplanes; and Model SAAB 2000 airplanes, certificated in any category. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with PROPOSALS (d) Subject Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 32, Landing Gear. (e) Reason This AD was prompted by reports that certain nose landing gear (NLG) door attachment bolts are susceptible to hydrogen embrittlement. The FAA is issuing this AD to address NLG door attachment bolts that were incorrectly manufactured and are susceptible to hydrogen embrittlement, decreasing the mechanical characteristics. This condition could lead to failure of the affected parts, which would impair the link between the NLG and NLG door and could prevent the extension or retraction of the NLG, and cause VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:25 Sep 14, 2020 Jkt 250001 consequent damage to the airplane and possible loss of control during landing. (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, European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD 2020–0149, dated July 7, 2020 (‘‘EASA AD 2020–0149’’). (h) Exceptions to EASA AD 2020–0149 (1) Where EASA AD 2020–0149 refers to its effective date, this AD requires using the effective date of this AD. (2) The ‘‘Remarks’’ section of EASA AD 2020–0149 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, Large Aircraft Section, International Validation 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 Large Aircraft Section, International Validation Branch, send it to the attention of the person identified in paragraph (j)(2) of this AD. Information may be emailed to: 9-AVS-AIR730-AMOC@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, Large Aircraft Section, International Validation Branch, FAA; or EASA; or Saab AB, Support and Services’ EASA Design Organization Approval (DOA). If approved by the DOA, the approval must include the DOA-authorized signature.

The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying the lateral dimensions of the Class D, establishing a new Class E surface area and establishing a Class E extension to the Class D and Class E surface areas. The Class D would be expanded from 3.5 miles to within a 4-mile radius of the airport, excluding the airspace in the Oakland Metropolitan Airport Class C PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 57171 Surface Area. The extension 1.8 miles each side of the 119° bearing to the southeast is no longer needed and would be removed. These modifications would bring the airspace up to current standards and provide additional protection for circling. Class E airspace extending upward from the surface would be established with the same lateral boundaries as the Class D. This would provide improved safety for operations within this area when the Airport Traffic Control Tower is not staffed. Class E airspace as an extension to the Class D and Class E surface areas would be established to capture aircraft as they descend through 1,000 feet AGL while using the RNAV Approach to Runway 28L. In addition, the term Airport Facility/ Directory would be replaced with Chart Supplement, the name of the airport and the geographical coordinates for Hayward Executive and Metropolitan Oakland International airports would be updated to match the FAA’s National Airspace System Resource (NASR) database. Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 5000, 6002, 6004, of FAA Order 7400.11E, dated July 21, 2020, and effective September 15, 2020, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR part 71.1.

Public Law 108–159, 117 Stat. 1952. The FACT Act added section 605(h) to the Fair Credit Reporting Act (‘‘FCRA’’), requiring a national consumer reporting agency (‘‘CRA’’) that receives a request for a consumer report that contains an address substantially different from the address on file for the consumer to notify the requester of the existence of the discrepancy.1 Section 605(h) also required federal banking agencies, the National Credit Union Administration and the FTC to issue regulations providing guidance regarding reasonable policies and procedures that a user of a consumer report should employ when the user receives a notice of such discrepancy.2 In 2007, the agencies issued the Address Discrepancy Rule to satisfy this requirement.3 The Address Discrepancy Rule requires users of consumer reports to develop and implement reasonable policies and procedures designed to enable the user to form a reasonable belief that a consumer report relates to the consumer about whom it has requested a consumer report, when the user receives a notice of address discrepancy.4 Users must also develop and implement reasonable policies and procedures for furnishing an address for the consumer that the user has reasonably confirmed as accurate to the CRA from whom it received the notice when the user (1) can confirm that the consumer report relates to the consumer about whom the user requested the report, (2) establishes a continuing relationship with the consumer, and (3) 1 Section 605 is codified at 15 U.S.C. 1681c.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.11E, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, dated July 21, 2020, and effective 
September 15, 2020. FAA Order 7400.11E is publicly available as listed 
in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11E 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 by modifying the lateral dimensions of the 
Class D, establishing a new Class E surface area and establishing a 
Class E extension to the Class D and Class E surface areas.
    The Class D would be expanded from 3.5 miles to within a 4-mile 
radius of the airport, excluding the airspace in the Oakland 
Metropolitan Airport Class C Surface Area. The extension 1.8 miles each 
side of the 119[deg] bearing to the southeast is no longer needed and 
would be removed. These modifications would bring the airspace up to 
current standards and provide additional protection for circling.
    Class E airspace extending upward from the surface would be 
established with the same lateral boundaries as the Class D. This would 
provide improved safety for operations within this area when the 
Airport Traffic Control Tower is not staffed.
    Class E airspace as an extension to the Class D and Class E surface 
areas would be established to capture aircraft as they descend through 
1,000 feet AGL while using the RNAV Approach to Runway 28L.
    In addition, the term Airport Facility/Directory would be replaced 
with Chart Supplement, the name of the airport and the geographical 
coordinates for Hayward Executive and Metropolitan Oakland 
International airports would be updated to match the FAA's National 
Airspace System Resource (NASR) database.
    Class D and Class E airspace designations are published in 
paragraph 5000, 6002, 6004, of FAA Order 7400.11E, dated July 21, 2020, 
and effective September 15, 2020, which is incorporated by reference in 
14 CFR part 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this 
document will be published subsequently in the Order.
    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

    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.
