Model 750XL Airplanes Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT. ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The FAA adopts a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Pacific Aerospace Corporation Ltd Model 750XL airplanes. This AD requires you to inspect the condition of the left and right outer panel attachment lugs for damage (scoring and gouging) and/or cracks (using a fluorescent PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 penetrant inspection procedure for the crack inspection); to inspect the spacing of left and right outer panel attachment lugs; to replace the lugs if damage is found; and to make necessary corrections to the spacing. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by the airworthiness authority for New Zealand. We are issuing this AD to prevent structural failure of the outer panel and spar due to a cracked, bent, or distorted condition of the left and right outer panel attachment lugs; and incorrect spacing of the left and right outer panel attachment lugs. This failure could lead to loss of control of the airplane. DATES: This AD becomes effective on December 29, 2005. As of December 29, 2005, the Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in the regulation. ADDRESSES: To get the service information identified in this AD, contact Pacific Aerospace Corporation Ltd., Hamilton Airport, Private Bag HN 3027, Hamilton, New Zealand; telephone: (64) 7–843–6144; facsimile: (64) 7–843–6134.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion What events have caused this AD? The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), which is the airworthiness authority for New Zealand, recently notified FAA that an unsafe condition may exist on certain Pacific Aerospace Corporation Ltd Model 750XL airplanes. The CAA reports the attachment lug spacers are incorrectly sized and cause the lugs to distort when the attachment bolt is tightened. Also, outer wing attachment lugs were used to secure the spar in the wing build jig without spacers. This E:\FR\FM\29NOR1.SGM 29NOR1 71382 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 228 / Tuesday, November 29, 2005 / Rules and Regulations may have bent the clevis legs outward. These two problems may cause cracking and/or degradation of fatigue life. What is the potential impact if FAA took no action? A cracked, bent, or distorted condition of the left and right outer panel attachment lugs and incorrect spacing of the left and right outer panel attachment lugs could result in structural failure. This failure could lead to loss of control of the airplane. 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 Pacific Aerospace Corporation Ltd Model 750XL airplanes. This proposal was published in the Federal Register as a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) on August 19, 2005 (70 FR 48657). The NPRM proposed to require you to inspect the condition and spacing of the left and right outer panel attachment lugs; replace the lugs if damage is found; and make any necessary corrections to the spacing. Changes to 14 CFR Part 39—Effect on the AD Comments Was the public invited to comment? We provided the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We received no comments on the proposal or on the determination of the cost to the public. 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. 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 minor editorial corrections. We have determined that these 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. Costs of Compliance How many airplanes does this AD impact? We estimate that this AD affects 4 airplanes in the U.S. registry. What would be the cost impact of this AD on owners/operators of the affected airplanes? We estimate the following costs to do this proposed inspection: Labor cost Total cost per airplane Total cost on U.S. operators 6 workhours × $65 = $390 ...................................................................................................................................... $390 $1,560 We estimate the following costs to do any necessary replacements that would be required based on the results of this inspection. We have no way of determining the number of airplanes that may need this replacement: Labor cost Parts cost Total cost per airplane 16 workhours × $65 = $1,040 .................. Pacific Aerospace Corporation Ltd. will provide warranty credit for replacement costs. $1,040 Authority for this Rulemaking Regulatory Findings 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 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 AD. Will this AD impact various entities? 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. Will this AD involve a significant rule or regulatory action? For the reasons discussed above, I certify that this AD: 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 summary of the costs to comply with this AD (and other VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:11 Nov 28, 2005 Jkt 208001 PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 information as included in the Regulatory Evaluation) and placed it in the AD Docket.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion

    What events have caused this AD? The Civil Aviation Authority 
(CAA), which is the airworthiness authority for New Zealand, recently 
notified FAA that an unsafe condition may exist on certain Pacific 
Aerospace Corporation Ltd Model 750XL airplanes. The CAA reports the 
attachment lug spacers are incorrectly sized and cause the lugs to 
distort when the attachment bolt is tightened. Also, outer wing 
attachment lugs were used to secure the spar in the wing build jig 
without spacers. This

[[Page 71382]]

may have bent the clevis legs outward. These two problems may cause 
cracking and/or degradation of fatigue life.
    What is the potential impact if FAA took no action? A cracked, 
bent, or distorted condition of the left and right outer panel 
attachment lugs and incorrect spacing of the left and right outer panel 
attachment lugs could result in structural failure. This failure could 
lead to loss of control of the airplane.
    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 Pacific Aerospace Corporation 
Ltd Model 750XL airplanes. This proposal was published in the Federal 
Register as a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) on August 19, 2005 
(70 FR 48657). The NPRM proposed to require you to inspect the 
condition and spacing of the left and right outer panel attachment 
lugs; replace the lugs if damage is found; and make any necessary 
corrections to the spacing.

Comments

    Was the public invited to comment? We provided the public the 
opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We received no 
comments on the proposal or on the determination of the cost to the 
public.

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 minor 
editorial corrections. We have determined that these 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 4 airplanes in the U.S. registry.
    What would be the cost impact of this AD on owners/operators of the 
affected airplanes? We estimate the following costs to do this proposed 
inspection:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                                 Total cost per   Total cost on

    We estimate the following costs to do any necessary replacements 
that would be required based on the results of this inspection. We have 
no way of determining the number of airplanes that may need this 
replacement:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                          Total cost per

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 
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 AD.

Regulatory Findings

    Will this AD impact various entities? 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.
    Will this AD involve a significant rule or regulatory action? For 
the reasons discussed above, I certify that this AD:
    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 summary of the costs to comply with this AD (and 
other information as included in the Regulatory Evaluation) and placed 
it in the AD Docket. You may get a copy of this summary by sending a 
request to us at the address listed under ADDRESSES. Include ``Docket 
No. FAA-2005-21935; Directorate Identifier 2005-CE-37-AD'' in your 
request.

    (c) This AD affects Model 750XL, serial numbers 101 through 115, 
that are certificated in any category.

What Is the Unsafe Condition Presented in This AD?

    (d) This AD is the result of incorrect sizing of the attachment 
lug spacers causing the lugs to distort when the attachment bolt is 
tightened. Also, outer wing attachment lugs were used to secure the 
spar in the wing build jig without spacers. This may have bent the 
clevis legs outward. These two problems may cause cracking and/or 
degradation of fatigue life. The actions specified in this AD are 
intended to prevent structural failure of the outer panel and spar 
due to a cracked, bent, or distorted condition of the left and right 
outer panel attachment lugs; and incorrect spacing of the left and 
right outer panel attachment lugs. This failure could lead to loss 
of control of the airplane.
