ACTION: Final rule; request for comments. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Dassault Model Falcon 2000EX airplanes. This AD requires revising the airplane flight manual (AFM) to extend runway length limits for takeoff and landing. This AD also provides for an optional terminating action for the AFM revision. This AD results from an event in which braking efficiency was temporarily lost during landing, but was recovered after the flightcrew fully released and then reapplied the brakes. We are issuing this AD to prevent a runway overrun in the event of loss of braking function, which could result in injury to passengers or flightcrew and damage to the airplane. DATES: This AD becomes effective September 22, 2005. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in the AD as of September 22, 2005. We must receive comments on this AD by November 7, 2005.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ´ ´ The Direction Generale de l’Aviation Civile (DGAC), which is the airworthiness authority for France, notified us that an unsafe condition may exist on certain Dassault Model Falcon 2000EX airplanes. The DGAC advises us that an event occurred in which braking efficiency was temporarily lost during landing, but was recovered after the flightcrew fully released and then reapplied the brakes. This event has been attributed to improper communication of acceleration information between the inertial reference system (IRS) and the brake system control unit (BSCU). This condition, if not corrected, could result in a runway overrun in the event of loss of braking function, which could result in injury to passengers or flightcrew and damage to the airplane. Relevant Service Information Dassault has issued Temporary Change (TC) 17, dated July 26, 2005, to the Dassault Falcon 2000EX EASy Airplane Flight Manual, DGT88898. The TC describes procedures for revising the Limitations and Performance sections of the airplane flight manual (AFM) to extend runway length limits for takeoff and landing. The procedures include maximum allowable weights and field length limits for takeoff and landing. Dassault has also issued Service Bulletin F2000EX–80, dated May 11, 2005. The service bulletin describes procedures for modifying the wiring that links the IRS to the BCSU. The modification establishes a direct wiring link between the IRS and the BSCU, which makes the braking function fully independent of the enhanced avionics system. Accomplishing the modification terminates the AFM revision. We have determined that accomplishing the actions specified in the TC will adequately address the PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 unsafe condition. The DGAC mandated the TC and issued French emergency airworthiness directive UF–2005–140, dated July 26, 2005, to ensure the continued airworthiness of these airplanes in France. FAA’s Determination and Requirements of This AD This airplane model is manufactured in France and is type certificated for operation in the United States under the provisions of section 21.29 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR 21.29) and the applicable bilateral airworthiness agreement. Pursuant to this bilateral airworthiness agreement, the DGAC has kept the FAA informed of the situation described above. We have examined the DGAC’s findings, evaluated all pertinent information, and determined that we need to issue an AD for products of this type design that are certificated for operation in the United States. Therefore, we are issuing this AD to prevent a runway overrun in the event of loss of braking function, which could result in injury to passengers or flightcrew and damage to the airplane. This AD requires accomplishing the actions specified in the TC described previously, except as discussed under ‘‘Differences Among this AD, French Emergency Airworthiness Directive, and TC.’’ This AD also provides for an optional terminating action for the AFM revision. Differences Among This AD, French Emergency Airworthiness Directive, and TC Although the French emergency airworthiness directive specifies a compliance time of before the next flight after the effective date of the French emergency airworthiness directive for the AFM revision, we specify a compliance time of 10 days after the effective date of this AD. We find that this will prevent airplanes from being grounded unnecessarily without adversely affecting the safety of the airplanes. The French emergency airworthiness directive requires accomplishing the terminating action before December 31, 2006. This AD will provide for doing the terminating action as an option, and we may consider further rulemaking to require the terminating action. Interim Action We consider this AD interim action. We are currently considering requiring the modification of the wiring that links the IRS to the BSCU, which would terminate the AFM revision required by this AD. However, the planned E:\FR\FM\07SER1.SGM 07SER1 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 172 / Wednesday, September 7, 2005 / Rules and Regulations compliance time for the installation of the modification would allow enough time to provide notice and opportunity for prior public comment on the merits of the modification. FAA’s Determination of the Effective Date An unsafe condition exists that requires the immediate adoption of this AD; therefore, providing notice and opportunity for public comment before the AD is issued is impracticable, and good cause exists to make this AD effective in less than 30 days. Comments Invited This AD is a final rule that involves requirements that affect flight safety and was not preceded by notice and an opportunity for public comment; however, we invite you to submit any relevant written data, views, or arguments regarding this AD. Send your comments to an address listed in the ADDRESSES section. Include ‘‘Docket No. FAA–2005–22308; Directorate Identifier 2005–NM–160–AD’’ at the beginning of your comments. We specifically invite comments on the overall regulatory, economic, environmental, and energy aspects of the AD that might suggest a need to modify it. We will post all comments we receive, without change, to http:// dms.dot.gov, including any personal information you provide. We will also post a report summarizing each substantive verbal contact with FAA personnel concerning this AD. Using the search function of that web site, anyone can find and read the comments in any of our dockets, including the name of the individual who sent the comment (or signed the comment on behalf of an association, business, labor union, etc.).

Examining the Docket You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at http://dms.dot.gov, or in person at the Docket Management Facility office between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. The Docket Management Facility office (telephone (800) 647–5227) is located on the plaza level of the Nassif Building at the DOT street address stated in the ADDRESSES section. Comments will be available in the AD docket shortly after the Docket Management System receives them. VerDate Aug<18>2005 15:01 Sep 06, 2005 Jkt 205001 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. We are 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 We have determined that 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 the regulation: 1. Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; 2. Is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under the DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034, February 26, 1979); and 3. Will not have a significant economic impact, positive or negative, on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. We prepared a regulatory evaluation of the estimated costs to comply with this AD and placed it in the AD docket. See the ADDRESSES section for a location to examine the regulatory evaluation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Discussion

    The Direction G[eacute]n[eacute]rale de l'Aviation Civile (DGAC), 
which is the airworthiness authority for France, notified us that an 
unsafe condition may exist on certain Dassault Model Falcon 2000EX 
airplanes. The DGAC advises us that an event occurred in which braking 
efficiency was temporarily lost during landing, but was recovered after 
the flightcrew fully released and then reapplied the brakes. This event 
has been attributed to improper communication of acceleration 
information between the inertial reference system (IRS) and the brake 
system control unit (BSCU). This condition, if not corrected, could 
result in a runway overrun in the event of loss of braking function, 
which could result in injury to passengers or flightcrew and damage to 
the airplane.

Relevant Service Information

    Dassault has issued Temporary Change (TC) 17, dated July 26, 2005, 
to the Dassault Falcon 2000EX EASy Airplane Flight Manual, DGT88898. 
The TC describes procedures for revising the Limitations and 
Performance sections of the airplane flight manual (AFM) to extend 
runway length limits for takeoff and landing. The procedures include 
maximum allowable weights and field length limits for takeoff and 
landing.
    Dassault has also issued Service Bulletin F2000EX-80, dated May 11, 
2005. The service bulletin describes procedures for modifying the 
wiring that links the IRS to the BCSU. The modification establishes a 
direct wiring link between the IRS and the BSCU, which makes the 
braking function fully independent of the enhanced avionics system. 
Accomplishing the modification terminates the AFM revision.
    We have determined that accomplishing the actions specified in the 
TC will adequately address the unsafe condition. The DGAC mandated the 
TC and issued French emergency airworthiness directive UF-2005-140, 
dated July 26, 2005, to ensure the continued airworthiness of these 
airplanes in France.

FAA's Determination and Requirements of This AD

    This airplane model is manufactured in France and is type 
certificated for operation in the United States under the provisions of 
section 21.29 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR 21.29) and 
the applicable bilateral airworthiness agreement. Pursuant to this 
bilateral airworthiness agreement, the DGAC has kept the FAA informed 
of the situation described above. We have examined the DGAC's findings, 
evaluated all pertinent information, and determined that we need to 
issue an AD for products of this type design that are certificated for 
operation in the United States.
    Therefore, we are issuing this AD to prevent a runway overrun in 
the event of loss of braking function, which could result in injury to 
passengers or flightcrew and damage to the airplane. This AD requires 
accomplishing the actions specified in the TC described previously, 
except as discussed under ``Differences Among this AD, French Emergency 
Airworthiness Directive, and TC.'' This AD also provides for an 
optional terminating action for the AFM revision.

Differences Among This AD, French Emergency Airworthiness Directive, 
and TC

    Although the French emergency airworthiness directive specifies a 
compliance time of before the next flight after the effective date of 
the French emergency airworthiness directive for the AFM revision, we 
specify a compliance time of 10 days after the effective date of this 
AD. We find that this will prevent airplanes from being grounded 
unnecessarily without adversely affecting the safety of the airplanes.
    The French emergency airworthiness directive requires accomplishing 
the terminating action before December 31, 2006. This AD will provide 
for doing the terminating action as an option, and we may consider 
further rulemaking to require the terminating action.

Interim Action

    We consider this AD interim action. We are currently considering 
requiring the modification of the wiring that links the IRS to the 
BSCU, which would terminate the AFM revision required by this AD. 
However, the planned

[[Page 53057]]

compliance time for the installation of the modification would allow 
enough time to provide notice and opportunity for prior public comment 
on the merits of the modification.

FAA's Determination of the Effective Date

    An unsafe condition exists that requires the immediate adoption of 
this AD; therefore, providing notice and opportunity for public comment 
before the AD is issued is impracticable, and good cause exists to make 
this AD effective in less than 30 days.

Comments Invited

    This AD is a final rule that involves requirements that affect 
flight safety and was not preceded by notice and an opportunity for 
public comment; however, we invite you to submit any relevant written 
data, views, or arguments regarding this AD. Send your comments to an 
address listed in the ADDRESSES section. Include ``Docket No. FAA-2005-
22308; Directorate Identifier 2005-NM-160-AD'' at the beginning of your 
comments. We specifically invite comments on the overall regulatory, 
economic, environmental, and energy aspects of the AD that might 
suggest a need to modify it.
    We will post all comments we receive, without change, to http://
dms.dot.gov, including any personal information you provide. We will 
also post a report summarizing each substantive verbal contact with FAA 
personnel concerning this AD. Using the search function of that web 
site, anyone can find and read the comments in any of our dockets, 
including the name of the individual who sent the comment (or signed 
the comment on behalf of an association, business, labor union, etc.). 
You may review the DOT's complete Privacy Act Statement in the Federal 
Register published on April 11, 2000 (65 FR 19477-78), or you may visit 
http://dms.dot.gov.

Examining the Docket

    You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at http://
dms.dot.gov, or in person at the Docket Management Facility office 
between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal 
holidays. The Docket Management Facility office (telephone (800) 647-
5227) is located on the plaza level of the Nassif Building at the DOT 
street address stated in the ADDRESSES section. Comments will be 
available in the AD docket shortly after the Docket Management System 
receives them.

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.
    We are 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

    We have determined that 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 the regulation:
    1. Is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under Executive Order

Adoption of the Amendment

0
Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, 
the FAA amends 14 CFR part 39 as follows:

PART 39--AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES

0
1. The authority citation for part 39 continues to read as follows:

    Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701.


Sec.  39.13  [Amended]

0
2. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) amends Sec.  39.13 by 
adding the following new airworthiness directive (AD):

2005-18-15 Dassault Aviation: Amendment 39-14255. Docket No. FAA-
2005-22308; Directorate Identifier 2005-NM-160-AD.

Effective Date

    (a) This AD becomes effective September 22, 2005.

Affected ADs

    (b) None.

Applicability

    (c) This AD applies to Dassault Model Falcon 2000EX airplanes, 
certificated in any category, with serial numbers 6, and 28 and 
subsequent; except those on which Dassault Aviation Modification 
F2000EX M2675 has been done during production.

Unsafe Condition

    (d) This AD results from an event in which braking efficiency 
was temporarily lost during landing, but was recovered after the 
flightcrew fully released and then reapplied the brakes. We are 
issuing this AD to prevent a runway overrun in the event of loss of 
braking function, which could result in injury to passengers or 
flightcrew and damage to the airplane.

Compliance

    (e) You are responsible for having the actions required by this 
AD performed within the compliance times specified, unless the 
actions have already been done.

Airplane Flight Manual (AFM) Revision

    (f) Within 10 days after the effective date of this AD: Revise 
the Limitations and Performance sections of Dassault Falcon EASy 
F2000EX AFM, DGT88898, to include the information in Dassault 
Temporary Change (TC) 17, dated July 26, 2005, as specified in the 
TC. The TC includes procedures for extending runway length limits 
for takeoff and landing. Operate the airplane according to the 
limitations and procedures in the TC.

    Note 1: This may be done by inserting a copy of Dassault TC 17 
in the AFM. When the TC has been included in the general revisions 
of the AFM, the general revisions may be inserted in the AFM, 
provided the relevant information in the general revision is 
identical to that in Dassault TC 17.

Optional Terminating Action

    (g) Modifying the wiring that links the inertial reference 
system and the brake system control unit, in accordance with 
Dassault Service Bulletin F2000EX-80, dated May 11, 2005, ends the 
requirements for the AFM revision required by paragraph (f) of this 
AD. After accomplishing the modification, Dassault TC 17, dated July 
26, 2005, may be removed from the AFM.
