Comments will be available in the AD docket shortly after the Docket Management Facility receives them. Costs of Compliance Discussion What events have caused this proposed AD? The FAA has received two reports of fuel line leaks within a compartment in the center console of Model SR22 airplanes. This compartment is drained to the belly of the aircraft. Investigation found that the leaks resulted from wire chafing on the fuel lines. What is the potential impact if FAA took no action? This condition, if not corrected, could result in unsafe fuel vapor within the cockpit and possible fire. Relevant Service Information Is there service information that applies to this subject? We have reviewed Cirrus Design Corporation Service Bulletin SB 2X–28–04 R1, Issued: November 1, 2005, Revised: November 8, 2005. What are the provisions of this service information? The service information describes procedures for: • Fuel line chafing inspection; and • Protective measures to prevent a potential chafing condition. FAA’s Determination and Requirements of the Proposed AD Why have we determined AD action is necessary and what would this proposed AD require? We are proposing this AD to address an unsafe condition that we determined is likely to exist or develop on other products of this same type design. The proposed AD would PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 How many airplanes would this proposed AD impact? We estimate that this proposed AD affects 2,135 airplanes in the U.S. registry. What would be the cost impact of this proposed AD on owners/operators of the affected airplanes? The manufacturer will cover parts and labor costs if the work is done within the standard airplane warranty period and the work is done at any of the manufacturer’s authorized service centers. 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 rulemaking action. Regulatory Findings Would this proposed AD impact various entities? We have determined that this proposed AD would not have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. This proposed AD would 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 proposed regulation: 1. Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; E:\FR\FM\08DEP1.SGM 08DEP1 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 235 / Thursday, December 8, 2005 / Proposed Rules 2.

Discussion

    What events have caused this proposed AD? The FAA has received two 
reports of fuel line leaks within a compartment in the center console 
of Model SR22 airplanes. This compartment is drained to the belly of 
the aircraft. Investigation found that the leaks resulted from wire 
chafing on the fuel lines.
    What is the potential impact if FAA took no action? This condition, 
if not corrected, could result in unsafe fuel vapor within the cockpit 
and possible fire.

Relevant Service Information

    Is there service information that applies to this subject? We have 
reviewed Cirrus Design Corporation Service Bulletin SB 2X-28-04 R1, 
Issued: November 1, 2005, Revised: November 8, 2005.
    What are the provisions of this service information? The service 
information describes procedures for:
     Fuel line chafing inspection; and
     Protective measures to prevent a potential chafing 
condition.

FAA's Determination and Requirements of the Proposed AD

    Why have we determined AD action is necessary and what would this 
proposed AD require? We are proposing this AD to address an unsafe 
condition that we determined is likely to exist or develop on other 
products of this same type design. The proposed AD would require you to 
inspect the fuel line and wire bundles for any chafing damage; if any 
chafing damage is found, replace any damaged fuel line and repair any 
damaged wires or sheathing of the wire harness; and install the forward 
loop clamp, fuel line shield, aft loop clamp, and anti-chafe tubing. 
The proposed AD would require you to use the service information 
described previously to perform these actions.

Costs of Compliance

    How many airplanes would this proposed AD impact? We estimate that 
this proposed AD affects 2,135 airplanes in the U.S. registry.
    What would be the cost impact of this proposed AD on owners/
operators of the affected airplanes? The manufacturer will cover parts 
and labor costs if the work is done within the standard airplane 
warranty period and the work is done at any of the manufacturer's 
authorized service centers.

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 
rulemaking action.

Regulatory Findings

    Would this proposed AD impact various entities? We have determined 
that this proposed AD would not have federalism implications under 
Executive Order 13132. This proposed AD would 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 proposed 
regulation:
    1. Is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under Executive Order 
12866;

[[Page 72947]]

    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 proposed AD. See the ADDRESSES section for a location 
to examine the regulatory evaluation.
