Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 108 / Tuesday, June 6, 2006 / Rules and Regulations with the producer until the buyer exercises this option to purchase the cotton. This option to purchase shall expire, notwithstanding any action or inaction by either the producer or the buyer, at the earlier of: (1) The maturity of any Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) loan that is secured by such cotton; (2) The date CCC claims title to such cotton; or (3) Such other date as provided in this option. (k) Absent other provisions causing the producer to lose beneficial interest in the cotton, inclusion in a contract of a provision that allows the producer to select the sales price of the cotton at the time the contract is entered into or at a later date, a contract normally referred to as a deferred price contract or a price later contract, will not result in the loss of beneficial interest in the cotton. (l) Commodities produced under a contract in which the title to the seed remains with the entity providing the seed to the producer, including contracts for the production of hybrid seed, genetically modified commodities and other specialty seeds as approved in writing by CCC, are eligible to be pledged as collateral for a marketing assistance loan and a loan deficiency payment may be made with respect to such production if at the time of the request for such a loan or payment the producer has not: (1) Received a payment under the contract; or (2) Delivered the commodity to another person. * * * * * I 15. Amend § 1427.18 by revising paragraphs (e) and (f) to read as follows: § 1427.18 Liability of the producer. wwhite on PROD1PC61 with RULES * * * * * (e) The producer and CCC agree that it will be difficult, if not impossible, to prove the amount of damages to CCC if a producer makes any fraudulent representation in obtaining a loan or loan deficiency payment or in maintaining or settling a loan or disposing of or moving the loan collateral without the prior written approval of CCC. Accordingly, if CCC determines that the producer has violated the terms or conditions of their requests for a loan or any applicable form required by CCC, liquidated damages shall be assessed on the quantity involved in the violation. Liquidated damages assessed in accordance with this section will be determined by multiplying the quantity involved in the violation by 10 percent of the marketing assistance loan rate applicable to the loan note. VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:35 Jun 05, 2006 Jkt 208001 (f) When it has been determined that a violation of the terms and conditions of a loan deficiency application has occurred, CCC will determine the quantity of the cotton involved with respect to such violation and assess liquidated damages by multiplying the quantity of cotton involved in the violation by 10 percent of the marketing assistance loan rate. * * * * * 16. Amend § 1427.21 by adding a new paragraph (e) to read as follows: I § 1427.21 Settlement. * * * * * (e) If CCC sells the commodity described in paragraph (a) of this section in settlement of the recourse loan, the sales proceeds shall be applied to the amount owed CCC by the producer. The producer shall be responsible for any costs incurred by CCC in completing the sale and CCC will deduct the amount of these costs from the sales proceeds. When CCC sells any cotton obtained by forfeiture under a marketing assistance loan, CCC will, in all instances, retain all proceeds obtained from the sale of the cotton and will not make any payment of any amount of such proceeds to any party, including the producer who had satisfied their obligation under the loan through forfeiture of the cotton to CCC. 17. Amend § 1427.23 by revising paragraph (a)(3) to read as follows: I § 1427.23 Cotton loan deficiency payments. (a) * * * (3) A producer must submit a completed request for a loan deficiency payment for a quantity of eligible cotton under § 1427.5(a) on or before the date beneficial interest is lost in the commodity and before the final loan availability date for the commodity. Producers must, on a form prescribed by CCC, indicate their intentions to receive a loan deficiency payment and submit the prescribe form to the FSA Service Center on or before beneficial interest is lost in such quantity. A producer may not file such a form after beneficial interest is lost. * * * * * Signed in Washington, DC, on May 10, 2006. Teresa C. Lasseter, Executive Vice President, Commodity Credit Corporation. [FR Doc. 06–5078 Filed 6–5–06; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3410–05–P PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 32427 DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Aviation Administration 14 CFR Part 39 [Docket No. FAA–2005–22358; Directorate Identifier 2005–NE–20–AD; Amendment 39– 14632; AD 2006–12–07] RIN 2120–AA64 Airworthiness Directives; Engine Components Inc. (ECi) Reciprocating Engine Cylinder Assemblies Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of Transportation (DOT). ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for Lycoming Engines (formerly Textron Lycoming) models 320, 360, and 540 series, ‘‘Parallel Valve’’ reciprocating engines, with certain Engine Components Inc. (ECi) cylinder assemblies, part number (P/N) AEL65102 series ‘‘Classic Cast’’, installed. That AD currently requires replacing these ECi cylinder assemblies. This AD requires the same actions, but replaces the ‘‘Engine Models’’ Table 1 and ‘‘Engines Installed On, But Not Limited To’’ Table 2 with corrected tables. Also, this AD corrects the casting part number. This AD results from reports of applicability errors found in AD 2005–26–10. We are issuing this AD to prevent loss of engine power due to cracks in the cylinder assemblies and possible engine failure caused by separation of a cylinder head. DATES: This AD becomes effective July 11, 2006. ADDRESSES: You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at http:// dms.dot.gov or in Room PL–401 on the plaza level of the Nassif Building, 400 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Peter Hakala, Aerospace Engineer, Special Certification Office, FAA, Rotorcraft Directorate, 2601 Meacham Blvd., Fort Worth, TX 76193; telephone (817) 222–5145; fax (817) 222–5785. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FAA proposed to amend 14 CFR part 39 with a proposed AD. The proposed AD applies to Lycoming Engines models 320, 360, and 540 series, ‘‘Parallel Valve’’ reciprocating engines, with certain ECi cylinder assemblies, P/N AEL65102 series ‘‘Classic Cast’’, installed. We published the proposed AD in the Federal Register on February 24, 2006 (71 FR 9480). That action proposed to require the same actions as AD 2005–26–10, but would replace the E:\FR\FM\06JNR1.SGM 06JNR1 32428 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 108 / Tuesday, June 6, 2006 / Rules and Regulations ‘‘Engine Models’’ Table 1 and ‘‘Engines Installed On, But Not Limited To’’ Table 2 with corrected tables. Also, that action proposed to correct the casting part number. Examining the AD Docket You may examine the docket that contains the AD, any comments received, and any final disposition in person at the Docket Management Facility Docket Office between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. The Docket Office (telephone (800) 647–5227) is located on the plaza level of the Department of Transportation Nassif Building at the street address stated in ADDRESSES. Comments will be available in the AD docket shortly after the DMS receives them. Comments We provided the public the opportunity to participate in the development of this AD. We have considered the comments received. One commenter requests that we change all references to casting P/N AEL65099 to read ‘‘casting head markings EC 65099–REV–1’’ to more accurately describe the actual markings. We agree, and made the reference changes in the AD. Request To Explain Another Set of Numbers on the Cylinder The same commenter requests that we explain that the set of numbers appearing on the cylinder below and to the left of the SN, in the form of ‘‘12345–67’’ is not used for determining applicability. We agree, and have added a statement to point this out in the AD. Update to Related Information Under paragraph (k), Related Information, we updated the reference to ECi Service Bulletin No. 05–08, Revision 1, dated December 29, 2005, to Revision 2, dated February 28, 2006. wwhite on PROD1PC61 with RULES Conclusion We have carefully reviewed the available data, including the comments received, and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting the AD with the changes described previously. We have determined that these changes will neither increase the economic burden on any operator nor increase the scope of the AD. 16:35 Jun 05, 2006 Jkt 208001 We estimate that 7,557 ECi cylinder assemblies are installed on Lycoming engines in the United States. We estimate that it will take about two workhours per engine to perform the aircraft inspections of the cylinder assemblies for applicability, and that the average labor rate is $65 per workhour. From the Lycoming Engines ‘‘Removal and Installation Labor Allowance Guidebook’’, dated May 2000, the complete cylinder replacement for a four cylinder engine takes 12 hours, while the complete cylinder replacement for a six cylinder engine takes 16 hours. Required parts will cost about $1,000 per cylinder assembly. Based on these figures, we estimate that the total cost of the AD to U.S. operators to be $9,152,140. ECi indicated that they might give operators and repair stations credit for returned cylinder assemblies toward the purchase of new ECi cylinder assemblies. Authority for This Rulemaking Request To Change All References to Casting P/N AEL65099 VerDate Aug<31>2005 Costs of Compliance 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 this AD: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 (2) Is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under 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 placed it in the AD Docket. You may get a copy of this summary at the address listed under ADDRESSES. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Safety. Adoption of the Amendment Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the Federal Aviation Administration amends 14 CFR part 39 as follows: I PART 39—AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES 1. The authority citation for part 39 continues to read as follows: I Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701. § 39.13 [Amended] 2.

ACTION: Final rule; request for comments. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Viking Air Limited Model DHC–7 airplanes. This AD requires revising the FAA-approved Airworthiness Limitations section of the airplane maintenance manual to prohibit operation of the airplane past its designed life limit for the primary structure, which is 80,000 total flight cycles. This AD also requires contacting the FAA for approval of analysis that substantiates that the airplane is safe to continue operation beyond the designed life limit. This AD results from a report that the designed life limit for the primary structure for the affected airplanes is 80,000 total flight cycles. We are issuing this AD to prevent continued operation of an airplane beyond its designed life limit for the primary structure, which could result in reduced structural integrity of the airplane. This AD becomes effective June 21, 2006. We must receive comments on this AD by August 7, 2006. DATES: E:\FR\FM\06JNR1.SGM 06JNR1

DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION

Federal Aviation Administration

14 CFR Part 39

[Docket No. FAA-2005-22358; Directorate Identifier 2005-NE-20-AD; 
Amendment 39-14632; AD 2006-12-07]
RIN 2120-AA64


Airworthiness Directives; Engine Components Inc. (ECi) 
Reciprocating Engine Cylinder Assemblies

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of 
Transportation (DOT).

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive 
(AD) for Lycoming Engines (formerly Textron Lycoming) models 320, 360, 
and 540 series, ``Parallel Valve'' reciprocating engines, with certain 
Engine Components Inc. (ECi) cylinder assemblies, part number (P/N) 
AEL65102 series ``Classic Cast'', installed. That AD currently requires 
replacing these ECi cylinder assemblies. This AD requires the same 
actions, but replaces the ``Engine Models'' Table 1 and ``Engines 
Installed On, But Not Limited To'' Table 2 with corrected tables. Also, 
this AD corrects the casting part number. This AD results from reports 
of applicability errors found in AD 2005-26-10. We are issuing this AD 
to prevent loss of engine power due to cracks in the cylinder 
assemblies and possible engine failure caused by separation of a 
cylinder head.

DATES: This AD becomes effective July 11, 2006.

ADDRESSES: You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at http://
dms.dot.gov or in Room PL-401 on the plaza level of the Nassif 
Building, 400 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Peter Hakala, Aerospace Engineer, 
Special Certification Office, FAA, Rotorcraft Directorate, 2601 Meacham 
Blvd., Fort Worth, TX 76193; telephone (817) 222-5145; fax (817) 222-
5785.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FAA proposed to amend 14 CFR part 39 
with a proposed AD. The proposed AD applies to Lycoming Engines models 
320, 360, and 540 series, ``Parallel Valve'' reciprocating engines, 
with certain ECi cylinder assemblies, P/N AEL65102 series ``Classic 
Cast'', installed. We published the proposed AD in the Federal Register 
on February 24, 2006 (71 FR 9480). That action proposed to require the 
same actions as AD 2005-26-10, but would replace the

[[Page 32428]]

``Engine Models'' Table 1 and ``Engines Installed On, But Not Limited 
To'' Table 2 with corrected tables. Also, that action proposed to 
correct the casting part number.

Examining the AD Docket

    You may examine the docket that contains the AD, any comments 
received, and any final disposition in person at the Docket Management 
Facility Docket Office between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through 
Friday, except Federal holidays. The Docket Office (telephone (800) 
647-5227) is located on the plaza level of the Department of 
Transportation Nassif Building at the street address stated in 
ADDRESSES. Comments will be available in the AD docket shortly after 
the DMS receives them.

Comments

    We provided the public the opportunity to participate in the 
development of this AD. We have considered the comments received.

Request To Change All References to Casting P/N AEL65099

    One commenter requests that we change all references to casting P/N 
AEL65099 to read ``casting head markings EC 65099-REV-1'' to more 
accurately describe the actual markings. We agree, and made the 
reference changes in the AD.

Request To Explain Another Set of Numbers on the Cylinder

    The same commenter requests that we explain that the set of numbers 
appearing on the cylinder below and to the left of the SN, in the form 
of ``12345-67'' is not used for determining applicability. We agree, 
and have added a statement to point this out in the AD.

Update to Related Information

    Under paragraph (k), Related Information, we updated the reference 
to ECi Service Bulletin No. 05-08, Revision 1, dated December 29, 2005, 
to Revision 2, dated February 28, 2006.

Conclusion

    We have carefully reviewed the available data, including the 
comments received, and determined that air safety and the public 
interest require adopting the AD with the changes described previously. 
We have determined that these changes will neither increase the 
economic burden on any operator nor increase the scope of the AD.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that 7,557 ECi cylinder assemblies are installed on 
Lycoming engines in the United States. We estimate that it will take 
about two workhours per engine to perform the aircraft inspections of 
the cylinder assemblies for applicability, and that the average labor 
rate is $65 per workhour. From the Lycoming Engines ``Removal and 
Installation Labor Allowance Guidebook'', dated May 2000, the complete 
cylinder replacement for a four cylinder engine takes 12 hours, while 
the complete cylinder replacement for a six cylinder engine takes 16 
hours. Required parts will cost about $1,000 per cylinder assembly. 
Based on these figures, we estimate that the total cost of the AD to 
U.S. operators to be $9,152,140. ECi indicated that they might give 
operators and repair stations credit for returned cylinder assemblies 
toward the purchase of new ECi cylinder assemblies.

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 this AD:
    (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) 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 
placed it in the AD Docket. You may get a copy of this summary at the 
address listed under ADDRESSES.

Unsafe Condition

    (d) This AD results from reports of applicability errors found 
in AD 2005-26-10. We are issuing this AD to prevent loss of engine 
power due to cracks in the cylinder assemblies and possible engine 
failure caused by separation of a cylinder head.

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.

Engines Not Overhauled or Repaired Since New

    (f) If your engine has not been overhauled or had any major 
repair since new, no further action is required.

Engines Overhauled or Repaired Since New

    (g) If your engine was overhauled or repaired since new, do the 
following:
    (1) Determine if ECi cylinder assemblies, P/N AEL65102 series 
``Classic Cast'', having casting head markings EC 65099-REV-1 and 
SNs 1 through 9879 (SN may have an ``L'' prefix for a long reach 
spark plug) are installed on your engine, as follows:
    (i) Inspect the engine log books and maintenance records for 
reference to the subject ECi cylinder assemblies.
    (ii) If the engine log books and maintenance records did not 
record the P/N and SN of the cylinder assemblies, visually inspect 
the cylinder assemblies and verify the P/N and SN of the cylinder 
assemblies.
    (2) If the cylinder assemblies are not ECi, P/N AEL65102 series 
``Classic Cast'', having casting head markings EC 65099-REV-1, no 
further action is required.
    (3) If any cylinder assembly is an ECi P/N AEL65102 series 
``Classic Cast'', having casting head markings EC 65099-REV-1 and a 
SN 1 through 9879 (SN may have an ``L'' prefix for a long reach 
spark plug), do the following:
    (i) If the cylinder assembly has fewer than 800 operating hours-
in-service (HIS) on the effective date of this AD, replace the 
cylinder assembly at no later than 800 operating HIS. No action is 
required until the operating HIS reaches 800 hours.
    (ii) If the cylinder assembly has 800 operating HIS or more on 
the effective date of this AD, replace the cylinder assembly within 
60 operating HIS after the effective date of this AD.

Definition of a Replacement Cylinder Assembly

    (h) For the purpose of this AD, a replacement cylinder assembly 
is defined as follows:
    (1) A serviceable cylinder assembly made by Lycoming Engines.
    (2) A serviceable FAA-approved, Parts Manufacturer Approval 
cylinder assembly from another manufacturer.
    (3) A serviceable ECi cylinder assembly, P/N AEL65102 series, 
``Titan'', having casting P/N AEL85099.
    (4) A serviceable ECi cylinder assembly, P/N AEL65102 series 
``Classic Cast'', having casting head markings EC 65099-REV-1, that 
has a SN 9880 or higher (SN may have an ``L'' prefix for a long 
reach spark plug).

Prohibition of Cylinder Assemblies, P/N AEL65102 Series ``Classic 
Cast'', Having Casting Head Markings EC 65099-REV-1 and SNs 1 Through 
9879

    (i) After the effective date of this AD, do not install any ECi 
cylinder assembly, P/N AEL65102, having casting head markings EC 
65099-REV-1 that has a SN 1 through 9879 (SN may have an ``L'' 
prefix for a long reach spark plug), onto any engine.
