Download as PDF 33920 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 121 / Monday, June 28, 2021 / Proposed Rules (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866, (2) Would not affect intrastate aviation in Alaska, and (3) Would 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: ■ Bell Textron Canada Limited (Type Certificate Previously Held by Bell Helicopter Textron Canada Limited): Docket No. FAA–2021–0513; Project Identifier 2018–SW–116–AD. (a) Comments Due Date The FAA must receive comments on this airworthiness directive (AD) by August 12, 2021. (b) Affected ADs None. (c) Applicability This AD applies to Bell Textron Canada Limited (type certificate previously held by Bell Helicopter Textron Canada Limited) Model 429 helicopters, certificated in any category, serial numbers 57001 and subsequent. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with PROPOSALS (d) Subject Joint Aircraft Service Component (JASC) Code: 6500, Tail Rotor Drive System; and 6520, Tail Rotor Gearbox. (e) Unsafe Condition This AD was prompted by reports of tail rotor gearbox assemblies found loose on the gearbox support. The FAA is issuing this AD address tail rotor gearbox assemblies found loose on the gearbox support. The unsafe condition, if not addressed, could result in structural damage and possible loss of control of the helicopter. (f) Compliance Comply with this AD within the compliance times specified, unless already done. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:20 Jun 25, 2021 Jkt 253001 (g) Required Actions Within 12 months after the effective date of this AD; or at the next scheduled 200hours time-in-service (TIS) or 12-month inspection, whichever occurs first, do a torque check of the tail rotor gearbox attachment hardware, in accordance with the Accomplishment Instructions, paragraph 2., of Bell Alert Service Bulletin 429–18–41, dated July 24, 2018. Repeat the torque check thereafter at intervals not to exceed 200 hours TIS or 12 months, whichever occurs first. (h) Corrective Actions If, during any torque check required by paragraph (g) of this AD, any tail rotor gearbox attachment moves during any torque check, repeat the torque check specified in paragraph (g) of this AD at intervals no less than 10 hours TIS and not to exceed 25 hours TIS until the torque stabilizes on all the nuts. Stabilization has occurred when, at the next torque check, the value has remained within the specified acceptable limits (160 to 200 inch-pounds (in-lbs) or 19 to 22 newton meters (Nms), inclusive), preventing movement of the gearbox housing. After the torque stabilizes on all the nuts, the repetitive torque checks specified in paragraph (g) of this AD are still required. (i) Credit for Previous Actions This paragraph provides credit for the initial torque check required by paragraph (g) of this AD, if that action was done before the effective date of this AD as required by paragraph (f)(2) of AD 2018–16–51, Amendment 39–19421 (83 FR 53171, October 22, 2018).

The Proposal The FAA proposes an amendment to 14 CFR part 71 to amend Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface for Malden Regional Airport, MO, as the Malden VORTAC has been decommissioned and all associated airspace extensions of Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface, off the Malden VORTAC have been eliminated. The Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface would be amended by increasing the radius to 7.3 miles (previously 6.7 miles). Also the airport’s name (formerly Malden Municipal Airport) and geographic coordinates would be updated to coincide with the FAA’s data base. 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.

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 proposed rule, when promulgated, will 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.

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 amends Class E airspace in Malden, MO, to support IFR operations

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 proposes an amendment to 14 CFR part 71 to amend Class E 
airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface for Malden 
Regional Airport, MO, as the Malden VORTAC has been decommissioned and 
all associated airspace extensions of Class E airspace extending upward 
from 700 feet above the surface, off the Malden VORTAC have been 
eliminated. The Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface would be amended by increasing the radius to 7.3 miles 
(previously 6.7 miles). Also the airport's name (formerly Malden 
Municipal Airport) and geographic coordinates would be updated to 
coincide with the FAA's data base.
    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 proposed regulation only involves 
an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. 
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 proposed rule, when promulgated, will 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.
