Proposed Amendment of Class E Airspace; Scott City, KS, 20100-20102 [2021-07579]

Download as PDF 20100 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 72 / Friday, April 16, 2021 / Proposed Rules 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: ■ Airbus Canada Limited Partnership (Type Certificate Previously Held by C Series Aircraft Limited Partnership (CSALP); Bombardier, Inc.): Docket No. FAA– 2021–0269; Project Identifier MCAI– 2020–01417–T. (a) Comments Due Date The FAA must receive comments by June 1, 2021. (b) Affected Airworthiness Directives (ADs) None. (c) Applicability This AD applies to Airbus Canada Limited Partnership (type certificate previously held by C Series Aircraft Limited Partnership (CSALP); Bombardier, Inc.) Model BD–500– 1A10 and BD–500–1A11 airplanes, certificated in any category, as identified in Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) AD CF–2020–41, issued October 15, 2020 (TCCA AD CF–2020–41). (d) Subject Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 72, Engines. (e) Reason This AD was prompted by reports of inflight engine shutdowns (IFESs); investigation results indicated that this could be caused by high altitude climbs at higher thrust settings on engines with certain thrust ratings. The FAA is issuing this AD to provide the flightcrew with information and procedures for operation above 29,000 feet to prevent uncontained failure of an engine during an IFES, which could result in structural damage and reduced structural integrity of the airplane. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with PROPOSALS (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, paragraph A., of TCCA AD CF–2020–41. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:09 Apr 15, 2021 Jkt 253001 (h) Exceptions to TCCA AD CF–2020–41 (1) Where TCCA AD CF–2020–41 refers to its effective date, this AD requires using the effective date of this AD. (2) Where paragraph A. of TCCA AD CF– 2020–41 requires amending the airplane flight manual (AFM) by ‘‘incorporating the Supplement 21 Operation above 29,000 feet from AFM Revision 15–A, dated 10 September 2020,’’ this AD requires amending the existing AFM by incorporating Supplement 21—Operation Above 29,000 Feet, of Airbus A220–100 Airplane Flight Manual, Publication BD500–3AB48–22200– 00, Issue 016, dated October 16, 2020. (3) Where paragraph A. of TCCA AD CF– 2020–41 specifies to ‘‘inform all flight crews of the new supplement and thereafter operate the aeroplane accordingly,’’ this AD does not require those actions as those actions are already required by existing FAA operating regulations. (4) Where paragraphs B. and C. of TCCA AD CF–2020–41 specify procedures for a borescope inspection for signs of damage of the 1st stage axial low-pressure compressor (LPC) rotor of each engine, to be performed after the AFM N1 limitation has been exceeded, this AD does not require that action. (5) Where paragraph C. of TCCA AD CF– 2020–41 describes an optional installation of health management unit reports to monitor N1 exceedances, this AD does not include that option. (i) Other FAA AD Provisions The following provisions also apply to this AD: (1) Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs): The Manager, New York ACO 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.

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, New York ACO Branch, FAA; or Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA); or Airbus Canada’s TCCA Design Approval Organization (DAO). If approved by the DAO, the approval must include the DAO-authorized signature.

Definition Section 4.25(e)(1)(i) of the TTB regulations (27 CFR 4.25(e)(1)(i)) defines a viticultural area for American wine as a delimited grape-growing region having distinguishing features, as described in part 9 of the regulations, and a name and a delineated boundary, as established in part 9 of the regulations. These designations allow vintners and consumers to attribute a given quality, reputation, or other characteristic of a wine made from grapes grown in an area to the wine’s geographic origin. The establishment of AVAs allows vintners to describe more accurately the origin of their wines to consumers and helps consumers to identify wines they may purchase. Establishment of an AVA is neither an approval nor an endorsement by TTB of the wine produced in that area.

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 amend the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet 
above the surface at Scott City Municipal Airport, KS, to support 
instrument flight rule operations at this airport.

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 amending the 
Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface 
within a 6.5-mile (decreased from 6.9-mile) radius of Scott City 
Municipal Airport, Scott City, KS; and updating geographic coordinates 
of the airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database.
    This action is the result of an airspace review due to the 
decommissioning of the Scott City NDB which provided navigation 
information for the instrument procedures at this airport.
    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.
