Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Port Alsworth, AK, 10505-10507 [2021-01617]

Download as PDF tkelley on DSKBCP9HB2PROD with PROPOSALS Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 33 / Monday, February 22, 2021 / Proposed Rules deployment system (LRDS) installed per Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) SR09211RC. The NPRM was prompted by an incident that occurred where the handle bent prior to the life raft deploying, and this prohibited the crew from successfully deploying and using the life raft. It was determined that the handle in this incident was not manufactured to the approved Type Design. The NPRM would have required removing and replacing the pilot or copilot life raft deployment handle (handle) located on the left side of the ‘‘broom closet’’ of the helicopter. Since issuance of the NPRM, the FAA determined that, based on a review of the design approval holder’s records, all of the handles have been replaced. Accordingly, the NPRM is withdrawn. DATES: The FAA is withdrawing the proposed rule published March 1, 2011 (76 FR 11174), as of February 22, 2021. ADDRESSES: The proposed actions were intended to address bending of the handle, which could result in failure of the life raft to deploy. This failure could lead to loss of access to the life raft after an emergency ditching on water.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FAA gave the public the opportunity to comment on the NPRM. The FAA received no comments on the NPRM or on the determination of the cost to the public. Discussion The FAA has issued an NPRM that proposed to amend 14 CFR part 39 by adding an AD that would apply to the specified products. The NPRM was published in the Federal Register on March 1, 2011 (76 FR 11174). The NPRM was prompted by an incident that occurred where the handle bent prior to the life raft deploying, and this prohibited the crew from successfully deploying and using the life raft. It was determined that the handle in this incident was not manufactured to the approved Type Design. The NPRM proposed to require removing and replacing the pilot or copilot handle located on the left side of the ‘‘broom closet’’ of the helicopter. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:29 Feb 19, 2021 Jkt 253001 Actions Since the NPRM Was Issued Since issuance of the NPRM, the FAA determined that, based on a review of the design approval holder’s records, all of the handles have been replaced, which addresses the identified unsafe condition. Therefore, the FAA determined that AD action is not appropriate. Withdrawal of the NPRM constitutes only such action and does not preclude the FAA from further rulemaking on this issue, nor does it commit the FAA to any course of action in the future. Comments FAA’s Conclusions Upon further consideration, the FAA determined that the NPRM is unnecessary. Accordingly, the NPRM is withdrawn. Regulatory Findings Since this action only withdraws an NPRM, it is neither a proposed nor a final rule. This action therefore is not covered under Executive Order 12866, the Regulatory Flexibility Act, or DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034, February 26, 1979). List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by reference, Safety. The Withdrawal Accordingly, the notice of proposed rulemaking, Docket No. FAA–2011– 0099, which was published in the Federal Register on March 1, 2011 (76 FR 11174), is withdrawn. ■ Issued on January 20, 2021.

The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to 14 CFR part 71 by establishing Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface of the earth at Wilder/Natwick LLC Airport, Port Alsworth, AK. The Class E airspace would be established within a 2.5 mile radius of the airport beginning at the point the 308° bearing from the airport intersects the 2.5-mile radius clockwise to the point the 79° bearing from the airport intersects the 2.5-mile radius.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On September 22, 2020, the Postal Service published a notice of proposed rulemaking (85 FR 59484–59486) to update addressing standards. In response to that proposed rule, the mailing industry provided many valuable comments, which has prompted the Postal Service to issue a revised proposed rule with an additional comment period. The revised proposed rule will clarify our proposal to respond to mailer comments by clearly outlining the ways in which the proposal has changed. Comments Thirty-five formal responses were received. Several responses expressed concern that the change would create cost increases for lower volume mailers that currently process their lists quarterly and would be required to process more frequently, increasing the cost paid to mail service providers for address matching services. Several responses suggested the 60-day requirement should be increased to 95 days, which coincides with Move Update Standards. Other comments questioned the 60-day requirement from address matching to the mailing date with a product release that is still valid for use beyond that time frame. The remaining comments requested an extension of the comment period. Background Currently, DMM section 602.6.0, ZIP Code Accuracy Standards, provides that a ZIP CodeTM may be used on a mail piece within 12 months after verified using a Postal Service approved method. Once a ZIP Code is used on a mailpiece, the address associated with that ZIP Code is considered to meet Postal Service addressing standards for an additional 12 months from the date first used in the mail. DMM sections 602.7.0, Carrier Route Accuracy Standard, and 9.0, Coding Accuracy Support System (CASS), provide that Address Matching and Coding Update standards require coding to be performed within 90 days before the mailing date for carrier route mailings and 180 days for all non-carrier route mailings using the most current USPS database. The current product release schedule allows for use of a database that is valid for 105 days and may be used for an additional 6 months beyond that timeframe. As such, an address added or modified in the Postal Service database may not be updated on PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 10507 a mailer’s mailing list for nearly 1 year after the change was made. In 2012, the Postal Service implemented address management product fulfillment via an electronic product fulfillment method designed to provide subscription products to customers more efficiently. The database product updates are posted each month to a secure site where customers can log in to simply download the product files. A recent survey of licensed Address Management data products indicates that CASS and Multiline Accuracy Support System (MASS) Certified software and service providers are retrieving and using the monthly updates during the address matching and coding processes. Proposal The Postal Service proposed implementing a database product cycle that aligns with the release of other mailing products. This will provide consistency across all mailing products and the method by which the data files are available and distributed. The suggestion to increase the 60-day requirement to coincide with the 95 days required for Move Update Standards is not within the scope of this proposal. The updated proposed release schedule allows for 120 days of use and an overlap in dates for product use. Mailers that currently process their lists quarterly would still be compliant as long as they do not mail beyond the ‘‘last permissible mailing date’’ for the ‘‘product date’’ as shown in the USPS Product Cycle in Exhibit 9.3.1. Mailers will be expected to update their systems with the latest data files as soon as practicable and should not wait until the ‘‘last permissible use’’ date. The Postal Service is proposing to implement this change effective July 1, 2021. However, mailers may opt to use the new monthly update cycles for both carrier route and non-carrier route mailings immediately. We believe this proposed revision will provide customers with a more efficient process and will reduce the risk of using address information that is not current. Although exempt from the notice and comment requirements of the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553(b), (c)) regarding proposed rulemaking by 39 U.S.C. 410(a), the Postal Service invites public comment on the following proposed revisions to Mailing Standards of the United States Postal Service, Domestic Mail Manual (DMM), incorporated by reference in the Code of Federal Regulations.

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 14 CFR part 71 by establishing 
Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface of 
the earth at Wilder/Natwick LLC Airport, Port Alsworth, AK.
    The Class E airspace would be established within a 2.5 mile radius 
of the airport beginning at the point the 308[deg] bearing from the 
airport intersects the 2.5-mile radius clockwise to the point the 
79[deg] bearing from the airport intersects the 2.5-mile radius. This 
area will accommodate circling north of runway 6/24. In addition, this 
area would include that airspace within a 7.3 mile radius of the 
airport beginning at the point the 230[deg] bearing from the airport 
intersects the 7.3-mile radius clockwise to the point the 271[deg] 
bearing from the airport intersects the 7.3-mile radius. This area 
would protect aircraft using the RNAV approach to runway 6 and 
departures until reaching 1,200 feet AGL.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of 
FAA Order 7400.11E, dated July 21, 2020, and effective September 15, 
2020, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 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.
