Amendment of the Class E Airspace; Corsicana, TX, 10714-10715 [2022-03995]

Download as PDF 10714 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 38 / Friday, February 25, 2022 / Rules and Regulations Authority for This Rulemaking Title 49 of the United States Code specifies the FAA’s authority to issue rules on aviation safety. 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. The FAA is issuing this rulemaking under the authority described in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart III, Section 44701: General requirements. Under that section, Congress charges the FAA with promoting safe flight of civil aircraft in air commerce by prescribing regulations for practices, methods, and procedures the Administrator finds necessary for safety in air commerce. This regulation is within the scope of that authority because it addresses an unsafe condition that is likely to exist or develop on products identified in this rulemaking action. Regulatory Findings This AD will not have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. This AD will not have a substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. For the reasons discussed above, I certify that this AD: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866, and (2) Will not affect intrastate aviation in Alaska. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by reference, Safety. The Amendment Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the FAA amends 14 CFR part 39 as follows: PART 39—AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES 1.

(c) Applicability This AD applies to MARS A.S. ATL–88/ 90–1B (commercially known as ATL–15 SL) emergency parachutes with an extension of static line made of Microline cord and that meet any of the criterion in paragraph (c)(1), (2), or (3) of this AD: (1) The parachute has a date of manufacture between January 1, 2016, and December 31, 2020, inclusive; (2) The parachute has a serial number (S/ N) 2145001 through S/N 2145005 inclusive, and S/N 2145023 through S/N 2145034 inclusive; or (3) The date of manufacture or the S/N of the parachute is unknown. (d) Subject Joint Aircraft System Component (JASC) Code 2563, Parachute. (e) Unsafe Condition This AD results from 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 identifies the unsafe condition as the length of the ripcord between the pins being too long, which could cause a malfunction of the emergency parachute. The unsafe condition, if not addressed, could result in failure of the emergency parachute to deploy when needed. (f) Compliance Comply with this AD within the compliance times specified, unless already done. (g) Remove From Service As of the effective date of this AD, remove each emergency parachute from service. (h) Special Flight Permit Special flight permits are prohibited.

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 E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above 
the surface at C. David Campbell Field-Corsicana Municipal Airport, 
Corsicana, TX, to support instrument flight rule operations at this 
airport.

History

    The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal 
Register (86 FR 70059; December 9, 2021) for Docket No. FAA-2021-1102 
to amend the Class E airspace at Corsicana, TX. Interested parties were 
invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written 
comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 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

    This amendment to 14 CFR part 71 amends the Class E airspace 
extending upward from 700 feet above the surface to within a 6.6-mile 
(increased from a 6.5-mile) radius of C. David Campbell Field-Corsicana 
Municipal Airport, Corsicana, TX; removes the Powell NDB and associated 
extensions from the airspace legal description; removes the city 
associated with the airport in the header of the airspace legal 
description to comply with changes to FAA Order JO 7400.2N, Procedures 
for Handling Airspace Matters; and updates the geographic coordinates 
of the airport to coincide with the FAA's aeronautical database.
    This action is the result of an airspace review as part of the 
decommissioning of the Powell NDB which provided guidance to instrument 
procedures at this airport.
    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.
