(b) Affected ADs None. (c) Applicability This AD applies to Daher Aerospace (type certificate previously held by SOCATA) Model TBM 700 airplanes, serial numbers 1106 and larger, certificated in any category. (d) Subject Joint Aircraft System Component (JASC) Code 2130, Cabin Pressure 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 a nonconfirming dump switch ejecting from its slot. The FAA is issuing this AD to prevent dump switches ejecting from their slots, which, in case of smoke/fumes in the cabin, could prevent evacuation of the smoke/ fumes. The unsafe condition, if not addressed, could result in excessive flight crew workload and injury to airplane occupants. (f) Compliance Comply with this AD within the compliance times specified, unless already done. (g) Required Actions Within 12 months after the effective date of this AD, inspect each dump switch part number (P/N) 7388475012 to determine if a seal is installed, as depicted in Figure 3 of Daher Aerospace Service Bulletin SB 70– 271–21, Revision 1, dated November 2019. (1) If a seal is installed, no further action is required by this paragraph. (2) If a seal is not installed, within 12 months after the effective date of this AD, modify the dump switch in accordance with steps (2) through (5) of the Description of Accomplishment Instructions in Daher Aerospace Service Bulletin SB 70–271–21, Revision 1, dated November 2019. jspears on DSK121TN23PROD with RULES1 (h) Parts Installation Provision As of the effective date of this AD, do not install a dump switch P/N 7388475012 on any airplane unless the switch has been modified as described in Daher Aerospace Service Bulletin SB 70–271–21, Revision 1, dated November 2019. Removal of a dump switch from an airplane and re-installation of that dump switch on the same airplane within the same maintenance visit is not an installation for purposes of this paragraph.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Authority for This Rulemaking The FAA’s authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is 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 E:\FR\FM\08DER1.SGM 08DER1 69582 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 233 / Wednesday, December 8, 2021 / Rules and Regulations 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 establish Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above ground level to support IFR operations at Rogers Field, Chester, CA. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (86 FR 43456; August 9, 2021) for Docket No. FAA–2021–0557 to establish Class E airspace at Rogers Field, Chester, CA. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. One comment in support of the action was received. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraphs 6005 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 Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in FAA Order JO 7400.11. jspears on DSK121TN23PROD with RULES1 Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference This document amends FAA Order JO 7400.11F, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 10, 2021, and effective September 15, 2021.

FAA Order JO 7400.11F lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. The Rule The FAA is amending 14 CFR part 71 by establishing Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface of the earth at Rogers Field, Chester, CA. The Class E airspace will be established extending upward from 700 feet above ground level (AGL) within a 4-mile radius of the airport. In addition, airspace extending upward from 700 feet AGL will be established within an area 2 miles each side of the approach course to runway 34, extending 3.3 miles south from the 4-mile radius parallel to the extended center line of runway 16, then proceeding southeast 7 miles on a course of 131°. This will form a dog leg that provides controlled airspace for aircraft as they descend VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:00 Dec 07, 2021 Jkt 256001 below 1500 feet AGL on approach to runway 34. The airspace extending upward from 700 feet AGL will also include an area 2 miles each side of the 330° bearing from the airport extending from the 4-mile radius northwest to 5.5 miles from the airport. This area will provide controlled airspace for the departure and missed approach procedures. 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 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 The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance with FAA Order 1050.1F, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures,’’ paragraph 5–6.5a. This airspace action is not expected to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant the preparation of an environmental assessment.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Authority for This Rulemaking

    The FAA's authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is 
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

[[Page 69582]]

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 establish Class E airspace extending upward from 
700 feet above ground level to support IFR operations at Rogers Field, 
Chester, CA.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (86 FR 43456; August 9, 2021) for Docket No. FAA-2021-0557 to 
establish Class E airspace at Rogers Field, Chester, CA. Interested 
parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by 
submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. One comment in 
support of the action was received.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraphs 6005 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 Class 
E airspace designations listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in FAA Order JO 7400.11.

Availability and Summary of Documents for Incorporation by Reference

    This document amends 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.

The Rule

    The FAA is amending 14 CFR part 71 by establishing Class E airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet above the surface of the earth at Rogers 
Field, Chester, CA.
    The Class E airspace will be established extending upward from 700 
feet above ground level (AGL) within a 4-mile radius of the airport. In 
addition, airspace extending upward from 700 feet AGL will be 
established within an area 2 miles each side of the approach course to 
runway 34, extending 3.3 miles south from the 4-mile radius parallel to 
the extended center line of runway 16, then proceeding southeast 7 
miles on a course of 131[deg]. This will form a dog leg that provides 
controlled airspace for aircraft as they descend below 1500 feet AGL on 
approach to runway 34. The airspace extending upward from 700 feet AGL 
will also include an area 2 miles each side of the 330[deg] bearing 
from the airport extending from the 4-mile radius northwest to 5.5 
miles from the airport. This area will provide controlled airspace for 
the departure and missed approach procedures.
    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 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

    The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical 
exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance 
with FAA Order 1050.1F, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies and 
Procedures,'' paragraph 5-6.5a. This airspace action is not expected to 
cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no 
extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant the preparation of an 
environmental assessment.
