SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) that supersedes AD 2005–26–53, which applies to certain Pacific Aerospace Corporation Ltd. (PAC) 750XL airplanes. AD 2005–26–53 currently requires you to insert text into the Limitations Section of the Airplane Flight Manual (AFM) that reduces the maximum takeoff weight from 7,500 pounds to 7,125 pounds. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by the airworthiness authority for New Zealand and the FAA’s decision that the actions correct an unsafe condition. Consequently, this AD would require you to remove rivets that have not been fully age hardened and replace them E:\FR\FM\21JNR1.SGM 21JNR1 35510 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 119 / Wednesday, June 21, 2006 / Rules and Regulations with bolts, washers, and nuts in specific locations where reduction in rivet strength affects overall structural capability. This AD retains the actions of the previous AD until the rivets are replaced with the bolts, washers, and nuts. We are issuing this AD so that wing ultimate load requirements are met. If wing ultimate load requirements are not met, wing failure could result with consequent loss of control of the airplane. DATES: This AD becomes effective on July 31, 2006. As of July 31, 2006, the Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in the regulation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion On March 3, 2006, 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. (PAC) 750XL airplanes. This proposal was published in the Federal Register as a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) on March 10, 2006 (71 FR 12305). The NPRM proposed to supersede AD 2005–26–53, Amendment 39–14451 (71 FR 2453, January 17, 2006), and require you to remove rivets that have not been fully age hardened and replace them with bolts, washers, and nuts in specific locations where reduction in rivet strength affects overall structural capability. The proposed AD would retain the airplane weight AFM Limitations requirement of AD 2005–26–53 until the rivets are replaced with the bolts, washers, and nuts. Comments 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 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 We estimate that this AD affects 7 airplanes in the U.S. registry. We estimate the following costs to do the replacement: Labor cost Parts cost Total cost per airplane Total cost on U.S. operators 32 work-hours × $80 per hour = $2,560 ..................................................................................... $519 $3,079 $21,553 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 AD. sroberts on PROD1PC70 with RULES 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 VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:35 Jun 20, 2006 Jkt 208001 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 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–2006–23579; Directorate Identifier 2006–CE–02–AD’’ in your request.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Discussion

    On March 3, 2006, 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. (PAC) 750XL 
airplanes. This proposal was published in the Federal Register as a 
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) on March 10, 2006 (71 FR 12305). 
The NPRM proposed to supersede AD 2005-26-53, Amendment 39-14451 (71 FR 
2453, January 17, 2006), and require you to remove rivets that have not 
been fully age hardened and replace them with bolts, washers, and nuts 
in specific locations where reduction in rivet strength affects overall 
structural capability. The proposed AD would retain the airplane weight 
AFM Limitations requirement of AD 2005-26-53 until the rivets are 
replaced with the bolts, washers, and nuts.

Comments

    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

    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

    We estimate that this AD affects 7 airplanes in the U.S. registry.
    We estimate the following costs to do the replacement:

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 AD.

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 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-2006-23579; Directorate Identifier 2006-CE-02-AD'' in your 
request.

    (b) This AD supersedes AD 2005-26-53; Amendment 39-14451.

Applicability

    (c) This AD affects Model 750XL airplanes, serial numbers 101, 
102, 104 through 120, and 125, that are certificated in any 
category.

Unsafe Condition

    (d) This AD is the result of some critical rivets on the wing 
not being fully age-hardened and being installed in specific 
locations where reduction in rivet strength reduces wing strength. 
The actions specified in this AD are intended to ensure wing 
ultimate load requirements are met. If wing ultimate load 
requirements are not met, wing failure could result with consequent 
loss of control of the airplane.
