DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Aviation Administration 14 CFR Part 39 [Docket No. FAA–2006–24254; Directorate Identifier 2006–CE–24–AD; Amendment 39– 14767; AD 2006–19–10] RIN 2120–AA64 Airworthiness Directives; Cirrus Design Corporation Models SR20 and SR22 Airplanes Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT. ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: ycherry on PROD1PC64 with RULES SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) that supersedes AD 2005–17–19, which applies to certain Cirrus Design Corporation (CDC) Models SR20 and SR22 airplanes. AD 2005–17–19 currently requires you to measure and adjust the crew seat break-over bolts and to replace the crew seat recline locks on both crew seats. Since we issued AD 2005–17–19, CDC developed new crew seat break-over pins to replace the old crew seat break-over bolts. Consequently, this AD retains the action from AD 2005–17–19 of replacing the crew seat recline locks on both seats and adds the action of replacing the crew seat break-over bolts with the new crew seat break-over pins on both seats. We are issuing this AD to prevent the crew seats from folding forward during emergency landing dynamic loads with consequent occupant injury. DATES: This AD becomes effective on October 24, 2006.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion On April 25, 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 CDC Models SR20 and SR22 airplanes. This proposal was published in the Federal Register as a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) on May 2, PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 2006 (71 FR 25785). The NPRM proposed to supersede AD 2005–17–19, Amendment 39–14240 (70 FR 51999, September 1, 2005), retain the action of replacing the crew seat recline locks on both seats, and add the action of replacing the crew seat break-over bolts with the new crew seat break-over pins on both seats. Comments 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 We received one comment from Jenna Deutschmann. The commenter supports the AD but believes the manufacturer should be liable to correct and pay for the problem since it involves a malfunction on their part. The FAA issues ADs to correct unsafe conditions. We do not identify who will pay for the parts or labor. In this case, CDC will provide warranty credit to the extent noted in Service Bulletins SB 2X–25–17 R1, Issued: December 15, 2005, Revised: January 20, 2006; and SB 2X–25–06 R4, Issued: August 13, 2004, Revised: May 5, 2005. We are not changing the AD as a result of this comment. 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 2,230 airplanes in the U.S. registry. We estimate the following costs to do the required replacements: E:\FR\FM\19SER1.SGM 19SER1 54756 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 181 / Tuesday, September 19, 2006 / Rules and Regulations Labor cost Model number and serial number Replacement of the recline locks: 1 workhour × $80 per hour = $80. Replacement of the recline locks: 1 workhour × $80 per hour = $80. Replacement of the recline locks: 1 workhour × $80 per hour = $80. Replacement of the crew seat break-over pins: 1 work-hour × $80 per hour = $80. Note: CDC will provide warranty credit to the extent noted in Service Bulletins SB 2X– 25–17 R1, Issued: December 15, 2005, Revised: January 20, 2006; and SB 2X–25–06 R4, Issued: August 13, 2004, Revised: May 5, 2005. 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–2006–24254; Directorate Identifier 2006–CE–24–AD’’ in your request. Adoption of the Amendment Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the Federal Aviation Administration amends part 39 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 39) as follows: I PART 39—AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES 1.

Airworthiness Directives; Cirrus Design Corporation Models SR20 
and SR22 Airplanes

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) that 
supersedes AD 2005-17-19, which applies to certain Cirrus Design 
Corporation (CDC) Models SR20 and SR22 airplanes. AD 2005-17-19 
currently requires you to measure and adjust the crew seat break-over 
bolts and to replace the crew seat recline locks on both crew seats. 
Since we issued AD 2005-17-19, CDC developed new crew seat break-over 
pins to replace the old crew seat break-over bolts. Consequently, this 
AD retains the action from AD 2005-17-19 of replacing the crew seat 
recline locks on both seats and adds the action of replacing the crew 
seat break-over bolts with the new crew seat break-over pins on both 
seats. We are issuing this AD to prevent the crew seats from folding 
forward during emergency landing dynamic loads with consequent occupant 
injury.

DATES: This AD becomes effective on October 24, 2006.
    As of October 24, 2006 the Director of the Federal Register

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion

    On April 25, 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 CDC Models SR20 and SR22 airplanes. This 
proposal was published in the Federal Register as a notice of proposed 
rulemaking (NPRM) on May 2, 2006 (71 FR 25785). The NPRM proposed to 
supersede AD 2005-17-19, Amendment 39-14240 (70 FR 51999, September 1, 
2005), retain the action of replacing the crew seat recline locks on 
both seats, and add the action of replacing the crew seat break-over 
bolts with the new crew seat break-over pins on both seats.

Comments

    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

    We received one comment from Jenna Deutschmann. The commenter 
supports the AD but believes the manufacturer should be liable to 
correct and pay for the problem since it involves a malfunction on 
their part.
    The FAA issues ADs to correct unsafe conditions. We do not identify 
who will pay for the parts or labor. In this case, CDC will provide 
warranty credit to the extent noted in Service Bulletins SB 2X-25-17 
R1, Issued: December 15, 2005, Revised: January 20, 2006; and SB 2X-25-
06 R4, Issued: August 13, 2004, Revised: May 5, 2005.
    We are not changing the AD as a result of this comment.

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 2,230 airplanes in the U.S. 
registry.
    We estimate the following costs to do the required replacements:

Service Bulletins SB 2X-25-17 R1, Issued: December 15, 2005,

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-2006-24254; Directorate Identifier 2006-CE-24-AD'' in your 
request.

Adoption of the Amendment

0
Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, 
the Federal Aviation Administration amends part 39 of the Federal 
Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 39) as follows:

PART 39--AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES

0
2. FAA amends Sec.  39.13 by removing Airworthiness Directive (AD) 
2005-17-19, Amendment 39-14240 (70 FR 51999, September 1, 2005), and by 
adding the following new AD:

2006-19-10 Cirrus Design Corporation: Amendment 39-14767; Docket No. 
FAA-2006-24254; Directorate Identifier 2006-CE-24-AD.

Effective Date

    (a) This AD becomes effective on October 24, 2006.

Affected ADs

    (b) This AD supersedes AD 2005-17-19, Amendment 39-14240.

Applicability

    (c) This AD affects the following airplane models and serial 
numbers that are certificated in any category:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
             Model                  Serial Nos.
--------------------------------------------------

Unsafe Condition

    (d) This AD results from discovering that the crew seats, under 
emergency landing dynamic loads, may fold forward at less than the 
26 g required by the regulations, 14 Code of Federal Regulations
