The FAA is issuing this AD to prevent excessive rudder forces following loss of an engine or significant loss of thrust. The unsafe condition, if not addressed, could result in the inability of the flight crew to maintain the safe flight and landing of the airplane and loss of control of the airplane. 16:00 Feb 03, 2022 (g) Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs) (1) The Manager, Wichita ACO Branch, FAA, has the authority to approve AMOCs for this AD, if requested using the procedures found in 14 CFR 39.19.

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 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 the Class D airspace and Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Southern Wisconsin Regional Airport, Janesville, WI, to support instrument flight rule operations at this airport. History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal E:\FR\FM\04FER1.SGM 04FER1 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 24 / Friday, February 4, 2022 / Rules and Regulations Register (86 FR 62755; November 12, 2021) for Docket No. FAA–2021–0980 to amend the Class D and Class E airspace at Janesville, WI.

Class D and E airspace designations are published in paragraphs 5000 and 6005, respectively, 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.

FAA Order JO 7400.11F lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. The Rule This amendment to 14 CFR part 71: Amends the Class D airspace to within a 4.3-mile (increased from a 4.1mile) radius of Southern Wisconsin Regional Airport, Janesville, WI; adds an extension 1 mile each side of the 221° bearing from the airport extending from the 4.3-mile radius of the airport to 4.4 miles southwest of the airport; adds an extension 1 mile each side of the 331° bearing from the airport extending from the 4.3-mile radius of the airport to 4.4 miles northwest of the airport; updates the name (previously Rock County Airport) and geographic coordinates of the airport to coincide with the FAA’s aeronautical database; removes the city associated with the airport from the airspace legal description to comply with changes to FAA Order JO 7400.2N, Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters; and updates the outdated term ‘‘Airport/Facility Directory’’ to ‘‘Chart Supplement’’; And amends the Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to within a 6.8-mile (decreased from an 8.9-mile) radius of Southern Wisconsin Regional Airport; adds an extension 2 miles each side of the 042° bearing from the airport extending from the 6.8-mile radius of the airport to 10.9 miles northeast of the airport; removes the city associated with the airport from the airspace legal VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:00 Feb 03, 2022 Jkt 256001 description to comply with changes to FAA Order JO 7400.2N; and removes the exclusionary language as it is not required.

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 only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, does 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 5–6.5.a. This airspace action is not expected to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment.

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 only affects air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this rule, when promulgated, does 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 5-6.5.a. This airspace action is not expected 
to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no 
extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an 
environmental assessment.
