SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion What events have caused this AD? The FAA has received reports of chafing conditions in the powerplant left-hand and right-hand engine assembly cable, wire, and hose routing clearance. The incidents of chafing have been reported on airplane serial numbers: RB–20, RB– 50, RB–61, and RB–101. Investigation revealed that the areas of concern include control cables, wiring harnesses, fluid and drain hoses, and support structure. Further, FAA determined that the cause of the unsafe condition relates to the design and quality control. Raytheon developed kits and service information to correct the chafing conditions. What is the potential impact if FAA took no action? The existence of chafing E:\FR\FM\13SER1.SGM 13SER1 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 176 / Tuesday, September 13, 2005 / Rules and Regulations conditions in the engine installation could result in leaking flammable fluids near an ignition source. This failure could lead to fire damage or loss of airplane control. Has FAA taken any action to this point? We issued a proposal to amend part 39 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 39) to include an AD that would apply to certain Raytheon Aircraft Company Model 390 Premier airplanes. This proposal was published in the Federal Register as a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) on June 1, 2005 (70 FR 31393). The NPRM proposed to require you to install a kit to correct chafing conditions in the powerplant left-hand and right-hand engine installations. Comments Was the public invited to comment? We provided the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. The following presents the comments received on the proposal and FAA’s response to each comment: Comment Issue No. 1: Request To Change the Compliance Time Wording What is the commenter’s concern? The Luftfahrt-Bundesamt (LBA), which is the airworthiness authority for Germany, requests that FAA change the compliance time wording to prevent any misunderstanding and/or noncompliance of the AD requirements. The LBA’s request notes, that if none of the inspection events (100-hour or annual inspection) occurs within 30 days after the effective date of the AD, the actions of the AD are not required. What is FAA’s response to the concern? The FAA agrees that the compliance time in the AD could currently be misinterpreted. We are rewording the compliance time to be more specific and to help eliminate any possible confusion. Comment Issue No. 2: Revision of Raytheon Aircraft Company Service Mandatory Service Bulletin No. SB 71– 3685 and New Kits What is the commenter’s concern? Raytheon’s comment notes that subsequent to the original release of SB No. 71–3685, several customers discovered that one of the tube assemblies, part number (P/N) 390– 910091–0005, provided in the Kit No. 390–9104–0001, interfered with the engine case on their airplanes. Raytheon has corrected the problem with two new kits, which are called out in SB No. 71– 3685 Rev. 1, Issued: May 2005, Revised July 2005. The Kit No. 390–9104–0003 is for owners/operators who attempted to comply with the original issuance of the service bulletin and could not. The Kit No. 390–9104–0005 is for owner/ operators who have not complied with the original issuance of the service bulletin. What is FAA’s response to the concern? Raytheon revised Mandatory Service Bulletin No. SB 71–3685 to the Revision 1, dated July 2005, level because it was not possible to comply with the Kit requirements as originally specified for some airplanes. The revision references kits and specifies how to comply with the action. Incorporating the revised service bulletin only makes compliance possible and does not increase the burden originally proposed in the NPRM. Therefore, FAA has determined that the final rule should incorporate Raytheon Mandatory Service Bulletin No. SB 71–3685, Rev. 1, dated July 2005. Conclusion What is FAA’s final determination on this issue? We have carefully reviewed the available data and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting the AD as proposed except for the changes discussed above and minor editorial corrections. We have Labor cost The labor and part costs are covered by Raytheon Aircraft Company warranty to the extent stated in the service information. Authority for This Rulemaking What authority does FAA have for issuing this rulemaking action? Title 49 of the United States Code specifies the FAA’s authority to issue rules on VerDate Aug<18>2005 15:30 Sep 12, 2005 Jkt 205001 determined that these changes and minor corrections: —Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the NPRM for correcting the unsafe condition; and —Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was already proposed in the NPRM.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion

    What events have caused this AD? The FAA has received reports of 
chafing conditions in the powerplant left-hand and right-hand engine 
assembly cable, wire, and hose routing clearance. The incidents of 
chafing have been reported on airplane serial numbers: RB-20, RB-50, 
RB-61, and RB-101.
    Investigation revealed that the areas of concern include control 
cables, wiring harnesses, fluid and drain hoses, and support structure. 
Further, FAA determined that the cause of the unsafe condition relates 
to the design and quality control.
    Raytheon developed kits and service information to correct the 
chafing conditions.
    What is the potential impact if FAA took no action? The existence 
of chafing

[[Page 53913]]

conditions in the engine installation could result in leaking flammable 
fluids near an ignition source. This failure could lead to fire damage 
or loss of airplane control.
    Has FAA taken any action to this point? We issued a proposal to 
amend part 39 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 39) to 
include an AD that would apply to certain Raytheon Aircraft Company 
Model 390 Premier airplanes. This proposal was published in the Federal 
Register as a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) on June 1, 2005 (70 
FR 31393). The NPRM proposed to require you to install a kit to correct 
chafing conditions in the powerplant left-hand and right-hand engine 
installations.

Comments

    Was the public invited to comment? We provided the public the 
opportunity to participate in developing this AD. The following 
presents the comments received on the proposal and FAA's response to 
each comment:

Comment Issue No. 1: Request To Change the Compliance Time Wording

    What is the commenter's concern? The Luftfahrt-Bundesamt (LBA), 
which is the airworthiness authority for Germany, requests that FAA 
change the compliance time wording to prevent any misunderstanding and/
or non-compliance of the AD requirements. The LBA's request notes, that 
if none of the inspection events (100-hour or annual inspection) occurs 
within 30 days after the effective date of the AD, the actions of the 
AD are not required.
    What is FAA's response to the concern? The FAA agrees that the 
compliance time in the AD could currently be misinterpreted. We are 
rewording the compliance time to be more specific and to help eliminate 
any possible confusion.

Comment Issue No. 2: Revision of Raytheon Aircraft Company Service 
Mandatory Service Bulletin No. SB 71-3685 and New Kits

    What is the commenter's concern? Raytheon's comment notes that 
subsequent to the original release of SB No. 71-3685, several customers 
discovered that one of the tube assemblies, part number (P/N) 390-
910091-0005, provided in the Kit No. 390-9104-0001, interfered with the 
engine case on their airplanes. Raytheon has corrected the problem with 
two new kits, which are called out in SB No. 71-3685 Rev. 1, Issued: 
May 2005, Revised July 2005. The Kit No. 390-9104-0003 is for owners/
operators who attempted to comply with the original issuance of the 
service bulletin and could not. The Kit No. 390-9104-0005 is for owner/
operators who have not complied with the original issuance of the 
service bulletin.
    What is FAA's response to the concern? Raytheon revised Mandatory 
Service Bulletin No. SB 71-3685 to the Revision 1, dated July 2005, 
level because it was not possible to comply with the Kit requirements 
as originally specified for some airplanes. The revision references 
kits and specifies how to comply with the action.
    Incorporating the revised service bulletin only makes compliance 
possible and does not increase the burden originally proposed in the 
NPRM. Therefore, FAA has determined that the final rule should 
incorporate Raytheon Mandatory Service Bulletin No. SB 71-3685, Rev. 1, 
dated July 2005.

Conclusion

    What is FAA's final determination on this issue? We have carefully 
reviewed the available data and determined that air safety and the 
public interest require adopting the AD as proposed except for the 
changes discussed above and minor editorial corrections. We have 
determined that these changes and minor corrections:

--Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the NPRM for 
correcting the unsafe condition; and
--Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was already 
proposed in the NPRM.

Changes to 14 CFR Part 39--Effect on the AD

    How does the revision to 14 CFR part 39 affect this AD? On July 10, 
2002, the FAA published a new version of 14 CFR part 39 (67 FR 47997, 
July 22, 2002), which governs the FAA's AD system. This regulation now 
includes material that relates to altered products, special flight 
permits, and alternative methods of compliance. This material 
previously was included in each individual AD. Since this material is 
included in 14 CFR part 39, we will not include it in future AD 
actions.

Costs of Compliance

    How many airplanes does this AD impact? We estimate that this AD 
affects 74 airplanes in the U.S. registry.
    What is the cost impact of this AD on owners/operators of the 
affected airplanes? We estimate the following costs to do the 
installation of the kit(s) to correct chafing conditions in the engine 
installation:

    The labor and part costs are covered by Raytheon Aircraft Company 
warranty to the extent stated in the service information.

Authority for This Rulemaking

    What authority does FAA have for issuing this rulemaking action? 
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

Regulatory Findings

    Will this AD impact various entities? We have determined that this 
AD will not have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132.

the reasons discussed above, I certify that this AD:
    1. Is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under Executive Order 
12866;
