Proposed Establishment of United States Area Navigation (RNAV) Route T-366; Point Hope, AK, 58230-58232 [2021-22546]

Download as PDF 58230 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 201 / Thursday, October 21, 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. (2) For gliders with single air brake metal end stops installed: Within 3 months after the effective date of this AD, inspect each single air brake metal end stop for overlap in accordance with Schempp-Hirth Flugzeugbau GmbH Working Instructions for Technical Note 396–20 rev1 action 2, dated September 18, 2020. If there is insufficient overlap, before further flight, repair using a method approved by the FAA or the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). (h) Parts Installation Prohibition § 39.13 [Amended] 2. The FAA amends § 39.13 by adding the following new airworthiness directive: ■ Schempp-Hirth Flugzeugbau GmbH: Docket No. FAA–2021–0878; Project Identifier MCAI–2020–01460–G. (a) Comments Due Date The FAA must receive comments on this airworthiness directive (AD) by December 6, 2021. (b) Affected ADs None. (c) Applicability This AD applies to the Schempp-Hirth Flugzeugbau GmbH gliders identified in paragraphs (c)(1) and (2) of this AD, certificated in any category. (1) Model Duo Discus gliders, serial number (S/N) 1 through 541 inclusive, except S/N 534. (2) Model Duo Discus T gliders, S/N 1 through 174 inclusive. (d) Subject Joint Aircraft System Component (JASC) Code 2760, Drag Control System. (e) Unsafe Condition This AD was prompted by mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as jerky extension of the air brakes at very high air speeds, including cases where the air brake blades interlock. The FAA is issuing this AD to prevent and correct damage of the airbrake end-stops. The unsafe condition, if not addressed, could result in blockage of the air brakes and reduced control of the glider. jspears on DSK121TN23PROD with PROPOSALS1 (f) Compliance Comply with this AD within the compliance times specified, unless already done. (g) Required Actions (1) For gliders with air brake end stop plastic bushings (22 mm) installed: Within 3 months after the effective date of this AD, replace each air brake end stop plastic bushing (22 mm) with an air brake end stop plastic bushing (32 mm) in accordance with Schempp-Hirth Flugzeugbau GmbH Working Instructions for Technical Note 890–16 rev1 and Technical Note 396–20 rev1 action 1, dated September 18, 2020. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:54 Oct 20, 2021 Jkt 256001 As of the effective date of this AD, do not install an air brake end stop plastic bushing (22 mm) on any glider.

FAA Order JO 7400.11F is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section of this document.

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.

found in Title 49 of the United States Code. Subtitle I, Section 106 
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

authority as it would expand the availability of RNAV in Alaska and 
improve the efficient flow of air traffic within the National Airspace 
System (NAS) by lessening the dependency on ground based navigation.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document proposes to amend FAA Order JO 7400.11F, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 10, 2021, and effective 
September 15, 2021. FAA Order JO 7400.11F is publicly available as 
listed in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order JO 7400.11F 
lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service 
routes, and reporting points.

Background

    In 2003, Congress enacted the Vision 100--Century of Aviation 
Reauthorization Act (Pub L., 108-176), which established a joint 
planning and development office in the FAA to manage the work related 
to the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen). Today, 
NextGen is an ongoing FAA-led modernization of the nation's air 
transportation system to make flying safer, more efficient, and more 
predictable.
    In support of NextGen, this proposal is part of a larger and 
comprehensive T-route modernization project in the state of Alaska. The 
project mission statement states: ``To modernize Alaska's Air Traffic 
Service route structure using satellite based navigation Development of 
new T-routes and optimization of existing T-routes will enhance safety, 
increase efficiency and access, and will provide en route continuity 
that is not subject to the restrictions associated with ground based 
airway navigation.'' As part of this project, the FAA evaluated the 
existing Colored Airway structure for: (a) Direct replacement (i.e., 
overlay) with a T-route that offers a similar or lower Minimum En route 
Altitude (MEA) or Global Navigation Satellite System Minimum En route 
Altitude (GNSS MEA); (b) the replacement of the colored airway with a 
T-route in an optimized but similar geographic area, while retaining 
similar or lower MEA; or (c) removal with no route structure (T-route) 
restored in that area because the value was determined to be 
insignificant.
    The aviation industry/users have indicated a desire for the FAA to 
transition the Alaskan en route navigation structure away from 
dependency on Non-Directional Beacons (NDB), and move to develop and 
improve the RNAV route structure. The FAA proposes to establish RNAV 
route T-366 to provide an alternate routing for Colored airways B-2, B-
5, and G-16. These routes utilize Wainwright Village, AK, (UKK) and 
Nuiqsut Village, AK, (UQS) NDBs, which are planned for decommissioning.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to 14 CFR part 71 to establish 
RNAV route T-366 in the vicinity of Point Hope, AK in support of a 
large and comprehensive T-route modernization project for the state of 
Alaska. The proposed route is described below.
    T-366: The FAA proposes to establish T-366 navigating from Point 
Hope, AK, to Cape Lisburne, AK, (LUR), mirroring Colored airway B-5, 
from LUR to Point Lay, AK, (PIZ), mirroring Colored airway B-2, and 
from PIZ to UQS, mirroring Colored airway G-16.
    United States Area Navigation Routes are published in paragraph 
6011 of FAA Order JO 7400.11F dated August 10, 2021, and effective 
September 15, 2021, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. 
The RNAV route listed in this document would be published subsequently 
in FAA Order JO 7400.11F.
    FAA Order JO 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.

regulatory action'' under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a 
``significant rule'' under Department of Transportation (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.
