ACTION: Final rule; request for comments. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to certain Bombardier Model CL–600–2B16 (CL–604) airplanes and Model CL–600–2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes. These models may be referred to by their marketing designations as RJ100, RJ200, RJ440, CRJ100, CRJ200, CRJ440, and CL–65. The existing AD currently requires revising the Emergency Procedures section of the airplane flight manual (AFM) to advise the flightcrew of additional procedures to follow in the event of stabilizer trim runaway. For certain airplanes, the existing AD also requires revising the Abnormal Procedures section of the AFM to advise the flightcrew of procedures to follow in the event of MACH TRIM, STAB TRIM, and horizontal stabilizer trim malfunctions. This AD requires revising the same Emergency and Abnormal Procedures sections of the AFM to advise the flightcrew of revised/ additional procedures. This AD also requires revising the Normal section of the AFM to require a review of the location of certain circuit breakers and a functional check of the stabilizer trim system. This AD also requires installing circuit breaker identification collars and provides an optional terminating action for the requirements of the AD. This AD also removes airplanes from the applicability of the existing AD. This AD results from reports of uncommanded horizontal stabilizer trim motion. We are issuing this AD to ensure that the flightcrew is advised of appropriate procedures to follow in the event of uncommanded movement or stabilizer trim runaway. Failure to follow these procedures could result in excessive uncommanded movement of the horizontal stabilizer trim actuator E:\FR\FM\30OCR1.SGM 30OCR1 63220 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 209 / Monday, October 30, 2006 / Rules and Regulations (HSTA) and loss of ability to use trim switches to override uncommanded movement or yoke disconnect switches to disconnect the HSTA, which could result in reduction of or loss of pitch control and consequent reduced controllability of the airplane. DATES: This AD becomes effective November 14, 2006. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in the AD as of November 14, 2006. On September 1, 2006 (71 FR 51990, September 1, 2006), the Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain other publications listed in the AD. We must receive any comments on this AD by December 29, 2006.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Bruce Valentine, Aerospace Engineer, Systems and Flight Test Branch, ANE– 172, FAA, New York Aircraft Certification Office, 1600 Stewart Avenue, suite 410, Westbury, New York 11590; telephone (516) 228–7328; fax (516) 794–5531. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion On August 29, 2006, the FAA issued AD 2006–18–04, amendment 39–14742 (71 FR 51990, September 1, 2006). That AD applies to certain Bombardier Model CL–600–2B16 (CL–604) airplanes and Model CL–600–2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes. That AD requires revising the Emergency Procedures section of the airplane flight manual (AFM) to advise the flightcrew of additional procedures to follow in the event of stabilizer trim runaway. For certain airplanes, that AD also requires revising the Abnormal Procedures section of the AFM to advise the flightcrew of procedures to follow in the event of MACH TRIM, STAB TRIM, and horizontal stabilizer trim malfunctions. That AD resulted from reports of uncommanded horizontal stabilizer trim motion. The actions specified in that AD are intended to ensure that the flightcrew is advised of appropriate procedures to follow in the event of stabilizer trim runaway. Failure to follow these procedures could result in excessive uncommanded movement of the horizontal stabilizer trim actuator (HSTA) and loss of ability to use trim switches to override uncommanded movement or yoke disconnect switches to disconnect the HSTA, which could result in reduction of or loss of pitch control and consequent reduced controllability of the airplane. That AD paralleled Canadian airworthiness directives CF–2006–20, dated August 22, 2006, and CF–2006– 21, dated August 23, 2006. Actions Since AD Was Issued Since we issued that AD 2006–18–04, Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the airworthiness authority for Canada, issued Canadian airworthiness directives CF–2006–21R1, dated October 3, 2006, and CF–2006– 20R1, dated October 4, 2006, which supersede Canadian airworthiness directives CF–2006–21 and CF–2006– 20, respectively. The new Canadian airworthiness directives specify revising the AFM procedures for stabilizer trim runaway, installing circuit breaker collars, and introducing trim system preflight tests. The Canadian airworthiness directives also specify installing a new, improved horizontal stabilizer trim control unit (HSTCU). The new Canadian airworthiness directives also revise the affected airplanes by removing serial numbers (S/Ns) 5666 and subsequent for the Model CL–600–2B16 (CL–604) airplanes and removing S/Ns 8067 and subsequent for Model CL–600–2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes. Model CL–600–2B16 (CL– 604) airplanes, S/Ns 5666 and subsequent, and Model CL–600–2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes, S/Ns 8067 and subsequent, have the new, improved HSTCU installed during production. In AD 2006–18–04, we stated that we considered that AD interim action and that the manufacturer was developing service bulletins that specify replacing HSTCU circuit boards with HSTCU circuit boards having conformal coating and was exploring other interim measures. The manufacturer now has developed a replacement and other interim measures, and we have determined that further rulemaking is indeed necessary; this AD follows from that determination. Relevant Service Information Bombardier has issued the temporary revisions (TRs) specified in the table below. TABLE—TRS Use— Dated— To the— CL–600–2B16 (CL–604) airplanes ...........................

Bombardier has also issued Modification Summary Package IS601R27410051, Revision C, dated September 29, 2006 (for Model CL–600– 2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) E:\FR\FM\30OCR1.SGM 30OCR1 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 209 / Monday, October 30, 2006 / Rules and Regulations cprice-sewell on PROD1PC66 with RULES airplanes). The modification summary package describes procedures for installing circuit breaker identification collars on certain circuit breakers. Bombardier has also issued Alert Service Bulletin A604–27–029, dated September 28, 2006 (for Model CL–600– 2B16 (CL–604) airplanes). The service bulletin describes procedures for installing circuit breaker identification collars on certain circuit breakers and for installing a new, improved HSTCU. Bombardier has also issued Service Bulletin 601R–27–147, dated September 28, 2006 (for Model CL–600–2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes). The service bulletin describes procedures for installing a new, improved HSTCU. The service bulletin refers to Sagem Service Bulletin HSTCU–27–011, dated September 22, 2006, as an additional source of service information for doing the installation. TCCA mandated the service information and issued Canadian airworthiness directives CF–2006–20R1, dated October 4, 2006, and CF–2006– 21R1, dated October 3, 2006, to ensure the continued airworthiness of these airplanes in Canada. The Canadian airworthiness directives also specify to brief the flightcrew to do the following actions prior to the first flight of the day: Do a review of the location of certain circuit breakers, and do a functional check of the stabilizer trim system. FAA’s Determination and Requirements of This AD These airplane models are manufactured in Canada and are type certificated for operation in the United States under the provisions of section 21.29 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR 21.29) and the applicable bilateral airworthiness agreement. Pursuant to this bilateral airworthiness agreement, TCCA has kept the FAA informed of the situation described above. We have examined TCCA’s findings, evaluated all pertinent information, and determined that we need to issue an AD for products of this type design that are certificated for operation in the United States. Therefore, we are issuing this AD to supersede AD 2006–18–04. This new AD retains the requirements of the existing AD and requires revising the Emergency and Abnormal Procedures sections of the AFM to advise the flightcrew of additional/revised procedures to follow in the event of stabilizer trim runaway, which replace AFM revisions required by the existing AD. This new AD also requires the installation of circuit breaker identification collars. This AD also requires revising the Normal section of VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:00 Oct 27, 2006 Jkt 211001 the AFM to require the flightcrew to review the location of certain circuit breakers and do a functional check of the stabilizer trim system prior to the first flight of the day. This new AD also provides an optional terminating action for the requirements of this AD. This new AD also removes airplanes from the applicability of the existing AD. Interim Action We consider this AD interim action. We are currently considering requiring the installation of a new, improved HSTCU, which will constitute terminating action for the requirements of this AD action. However, the planned compliance time for the installation of the modification would allow enough time to provide notice and opportunity for prior public comment on the merits of the modification. FAA’s Determination of the Effective Date An unsafe condition exists that requires the immediate adoption of this AD; therefore, providing notice and opportunity for public comment before the AD is issued is impracticable, and good cause exists to make this AD effective in less than 30 days. Comments Invited This AD is a final rule that involves requirements that affect flight safety and was not preceded by notice and an opportunity for public comment; however, we invite you to submit any relevant written data, views, or arguments regarding this AD. Send your comments to an address listed in the ADDRESSES section. Include ‘‘Docket No. FAA–2006–26118; Directorate Identifier 2006–NM–226–AD’’ at the beginning of your comments. We specifically invite comments on the overall regulatory, economic, environmental, and energy aspects of the AD that might suggest a need to modify it. We will post all comments we receive, without change, to http:// dms.dot.gov, including any personal information you provide. We will also post a report summarizing each substantive verbal contact with FAA personnel concerning this AD. Using the search function of that Web site, anyone can find and read the comments in any of our dockets, including the name of the individual who sent the comment (or signed the comment on behalf of an association, business, labor union, etc.). You can review the DOT’s complete Privacy Act Statement in the Federal Register published on April 11, 2000 (65 FR 19477–78), or you can visit http://dms.dot.gov. PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 63221 Examining the Docket You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at http://dms.dot.gov, or in person at the Docket Management Facility office between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. The Docket Management Facility office (telephone (800) 647–5227) is located on the plaza level of the Nassif Building at the DOT street address stated in the ADDRESSES section. Comments will be available in the AD docket shortly after the Docket Management System receives them. 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 the regulation: 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 regulatory evaluation of the estimated costs to comply with this AD and placed it in the AD docket. See the ADDRESSES section for a location to examine the regulatory evaluation.

The FAA issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 to include an AD that would apply to certain Airbus Model A318– 100 and A319–100 series airplanes; Model A320–111 airplanes; Model A320–200, A321–200, A330–200, A330– 300, A340–200, and A340–300 series airplanes; Model A340–541 airplanes; and Model A340–642 airplanes; equipped with certain Sogerma-Services powered seats. That NPRM was published in the Federal Register on January 19, 2006 (71 FR 3021). That NPRM proposed to require inspecting to determine if a certain actuator is installed in the pilot’s or co-pilot’s seat, and doing applicable corrective actions. For certain actuators, that NPRM also proposed to require replacing rotors on both vertical and horizontal movements with new rotors, and replacing the clutch cap with a new cap. Comments We provided the public the opportunity to participate in the development of this AD. We have considered the comments received. Support for the NPRM Airbus supports the contents of the NPRM. Northwest Airlines supports the intent of the NPRM. PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 63225 Request To Extend Compliance Time Based on Parts Availability United Airlines states that the actuator supplier has a limited quantity of spare actuators. United estimates that it would require a six-month window between the AD release date and the AD effective date to permit sufficient time to rotate its spares through the shop for AD rework. United requests that we select an AD effective date that is at least six to eight months after the AD release date to provide sufficient lead time for the industry to rotate the spare actuators and seats. The Air Transport Association (ATA), on behalf of USAirways, also states that its members have spoken to the seat manufacturer and raised concerns that there might be part shortages. ATA states that the issue of parts availability needs to be addressed before the AD is released. We infer that the commenters request that we extend the compliance time in paragraph (h) of the NPRM or that we remove that paragraph from the final rule. Regarding parts shortages, we have confirmed with Airbus and EADS Sogerma that the necessary parts are available well within the time necessary to replace the actuators. We have not changed the final rule in this regard. Request To Extend Compliance Time To Match Heavy Maintenance Schedule ATA, on behalf of USAirways, requests that the compliance time be extended from 56 months to 72 months. This extension would allow USAirways to accomplish the AD requirements during heavy maintenance. We do not agree with the request to extend the compliance time based on an operator’s heavy maintenance schedule. We have determined that the compliance time, as proposed, represents the maximum interval of time allowable for the affected airplanes to continue to safely operate before the inspection is done. Since maintenance schedules vary among operators, there would be no assurance that the airplane would be inspected during that maximum interval. We have not changed the final rule in this regard. However, operators may request approval of an alternative method of compliance in accordance with the procedures specified in paragraph (i) of this AD. Request To Reduce Compliance Time The Airline Pilot’s Association (ALPA) recommends that the compliance time for the actuator/ component replacement should be no greater than 50 percent of the component time-in-service that would E:\FR\FM\30OCR1.SGM 30OCR1

Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier Model CL-600-2B16 (CL-604) 
Airplanes and Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) 
Airplanes

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

ACTION: Final rule; request for comments.

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

SUMMARY: The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive 
(AD) that applies to certain Bombardier Model CL-600-2B16 (CL-604) 
airplanes and Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) 
airplanes. These models may be referred to by their marketing 
designations as RJ100, RJ200, RJ440, CRJ100, CRJ200, CRJ440, and CL-65. 
The existing AD currently requires revising the Emergency Procedures 
section of the airplane flight manual (AFM) to advise the flightcrew of 
additional procedures to follow in the event of stabilizer trim 
runaway. For certain airplanes, the existing AD also requires revising 
the Abnormal Procedures section of the AFM to advise the flightcrew of 
procedures to follow in the event of MACH TRIM, STAB TRIM, and 
horizontal stabilizer trim malfunctions. This AD requires revising the 
same Emergency and Abnormal Procedures sections of the AFM to advise 
the flightcrew of revised/additional procedures. This AD also requires 
revising the Normal section of the AFM to require a review of the 
location of certain circuit breakers and a functional check of the 
stabilizer trim system. This AD also requires installing circuit 
breaker identification collars and provides an optional terminating 
action for the requirements of the AD. This AD also removes airplanes 
from the applicability of the existing AD. This AD results from reports 
of uncommanded horizontal stabilizer trim motion. We are issuing this 
AD to ensure that the flightcrew is advised of appropriate procedures 
to follow in the event of uncommanded movement or stabilizer trim 
runaway. Failure to follow these procedures could result in excessive 
uncommanded movement of the horizontal stabilizer trim actuator

[[Page 63220]]

(HSTA) and loss of ability to use trim switches to override uncommanded 
movement or yoke disconnect switches to disconnect the HSTA, which 
could result in reduction of or loss of pitch control and consequent 
reduced controllability of the airplane.

DATES: This AD becomes effective November 14, 2006.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of certain publications listed in the AD as of November 14, 
2006.
    On September 1, 2006 (71 FR 51990, September 1, 2006), the Director 
of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of 
certain other publications listed in the AD.
    We must receive any comments on this AD by December 29, 2006.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion

    On August 29, 2006, the FAA issued AD 2006-18-04, amendment 39-
14742 (71 FR 51990, September 1, 2006). That AD applies to certain 
Bombardier Model CL-600-2B16 (CL-604) airplanes and Model CL-600-2B19 
(Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes. That AD requires revising 
the Emergency Procedures section of the airplane flight manual (AFM) to 
advise the flightcrew of additional procedures to follow in the event 
of stabilizer trim runaway. For certain airplanes, that AD also 
requires revising the Abnormal Procedures section of the AFM to advise 
the flightcrew of procedures to follow in the event of MACH TRIM, STAB 
TRIM, and horizontal stabilizer trim malfunctions. That AD resulted 
from reports of uncommanded horizontal stabilizer trim motion. The 
actions specified in that AD are intended to ensure that the flightcrew 
is advised of appropriate procedures to follow in the event of 
stabilizer trim runaway. Failure to follow these procedures could 
result in excessive uncommanded movement of the horizontal stabilizer 
trim actuator (HSTA) and loss of ability to use trim switches to 
override uncommanded movement or yoke disconnect switches to disconnect 
the HSTA, which could result in reduction of or loss of pitch control 
and consequent reduced controllability of the airplane.
    That AD paralleled Canadian airworthiness directives CF-2006-20, 
dated August 22, 2006, and CF-2006-21, dated August 23, 2006.

Actions Since AD Was Issued

    Since we issued that AD 2006-18-04, Transport Canada Civil Aviation 
(TCCA), which is the airworthiness authority for Canada, issued 
Canadian airworthiness directives CF-2006-21R1, dated October 3, 2006, 
and CF-2006-20R1, dated October 4, 2006, which supersede Canadian 
airworthiness directives CF-2006-21 and CF-2006-20, respectively. The 
new Canadian airworthiness directives specify revising the AFM 
procedures for stabilizer trim runaway, installing circuit breaker 
collars, and introducing trim system preflight tests. The Canadian 
airworthiness directives also specify installing a new, improved 
horizontal stabilizer trim control unit (HSTCU). The new Canadian 
airworthiness directives also revise the affected airplanes by removing 
serial numbers (S/Ns) 5666 and subsequent for the Model CL-600-2B16 
(CL-604) airplanes and removing S/Ns 8067 and subsequent for Model CL-
600-2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes. Model CL-600-2B16 
(CL-604) airplanes, S/Ns 5666 and subsequent, and Model CL-600-2B19 
(Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes, S/Ns 8067 and subsequent, 
have the new, improved HSTCU installed during production.
    In AD 2006-18-04, we stated that we considered that AD interim 
action and that the manufacturer was developing service bulletins that 
specify replacing HSTCU circuit boards with HSTCU circuit boards having 
conformal coating and was exploring other interim measures. The 
manufacturer now has developed a replacement and other interim 
measures, and we have determined that further rulemaking is indeed 
necessary; this AD follows from that determination.

TR 604/21-1 describes revising the Emergency and Abnormal Procedures 
sections of the Canadair Challenger CL-604 AFM to advise the flightcrew 
of additional procedures to follow in the event of stabilizer trim 
runaway and to advise the flightcrew of revised procedures to follow in 
the event of MACH TRIM, STAB TRIM, and horizontal stabilizer trim 
malfunctions. TR RJ/152-5 describes revising the Emergency and Abnormal 
Procedures sections of the Canadair Regional Jet AFM to advise the 
flightcrew of revised procedures to follow in the event of stabilizer 
trim runaway and in the event of MACH TRIM, STAB TRIM, and horizontal 
stabilizer trim malfunctions.

    Bombardier has also issued Modification Summary Package 
IS601R27410051, Revision C, dated September 29, 2006 (for Model CL-600-
2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440)

airplanes). The modification summary package describes procedures for 
installing circuit breaker identification collars on certain circuit 
breakers.
    Bombardier has also issued Alert Service Bulletin A604-27-029, 
dated September 28, 2006 (for Model CL-600-2B16 (CL-604) airplanes). 
The service bulletin describes procedures for installing circuit 
breaker identification collars on certain circuit breakers and for 
installing a new, improved HSTCU.
    Bombardier has also issued Service Bulletin 601R-27-147, dated 
September 28, 2006 (for Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 
440) airplanes). The service bulletin describes procedures for 
installing a new, improved HSTCU. The service bulletin refers to Sagem 
Service Bulletin HSTCU-27-011, dated September 22, 2006, as an 
additional source of service information for doing the installation.
    TCCA mandated the service information and issued Canadian 
airworthiness directives CF-2006-20R1, dated October 4, 2006, and CF-
2006-21R1, dated October 3, 2006, to ensure the continued airworthiness 
of these airplanes in Canada. The Canadian airworthiness directives 
also specify to brief the flightcrew to do the following actions prior 
to the first flight of the day: Do a review of the location of certain 
circuit breakers, and do a functional check of the stabilizer trim 
system.

FAA's Determination and Requirements of This AD

    These airplane models are manufactured in Canada and are type 
certificated for operation in the United States under the provisions of 
section 21.29 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR 21.29) and 
the applicable bilateral airworthiness agreement. Pursuant to this 
bilateral airworthiness agreement, TCCA has kept the FAA informed of 
the situation described above. We have examined TCCA's findings, 
evaluated all pertinent information, and determined that we need to 
issue an AD for products of this type design that are certificated for 
operation in the United States.
    Therefore, we are issuing this AD to supersede AD 2006-18-04. This 
new AD retains the requirements of the existing AD and requires 
revising the Emergency and Abnormal Procedures sections of the AFM to 
advise the flightcrew of additional/revised procedures to follow in the 
event of stabilizer trim runaway, which replace AFM revisions required 
by the existing AD. This new AD also requires the installation of 
circuit breaker identification collars. This AD also requires revising 
the Normal section of the AFM to require the flightcrew to review the 
location of certain circuit breakers and do a functional check of the 
stabilizer trim system prior to the first flight of the day. This new 
AD also provides an optional terminating action for the requirements of 
this AD. This new AD also removes airplanes from the applicability of 
the existing AD.

Interim Action

    We consider this AD interim action. We are currently considering 
requiring the installation of a new, improved HSTCU, which will 
constitute terminating action for the requirements of this AD action. 
However, the planned compliance time for the installation of the 
modification would allow enough time to provide notice and opportunity 
for prior public comment on the merits of the modification.

FAA's Determination of the Effective Date

    An unsafe condition exists that requires the immediate adoption of 
this AD; therefore, providing notice and opportunity for public comment 
before the AD is issued is impracticable, and good cause exists to make 
this AD effective in less than 30 days.

Comments Invited

    This AD is a final rule that involves requirements that affect 
flight safety and was not preceded by notice and an opportunity for 
public comment; however, we invite you to submit any relevant written 
data, views, or arguments regarding this AD. Send your comments to an 
address listed in the ADDRESSES section. Include ``Docket No. FAA-2006-
26118; Directorate Identifier 2006-NM-226-AD'' at the beginning of your 
comments. We specifically invite comments on the overall regulatory, 
economic, environmental, and energy aspects of the AD that might 
suggest a need to modify it.
    We will post all comments we receive, without change, to http://
dms.dot.gov, including any personal information you provide. We will 
also post a report summarizing each substantive verbal contact with FAA 
personnel concerning this AD. Using the search function of that Web 
site, anyone can find and read the comments in any of our dockets, 
including the name of the individual who sent the comment (or signed 
the comment on behalf of an association, business, labor union, etc.). 
You can review the DOT's complete Privacy Act Statement in the Federal 
Register published on April 11, 2000 (65 FR 19477-78), or you can visit

Examining the Docket

    You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at http://
dms.dot.gov, or in person at the Docket Management Facility office 
between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal 
holidays. The Docket Management Facility office (telephone (800) 647-
5227) is located on the plaza level of the Nassif Building at the DOT 
street address stated in the ADDRESSES section. Comments will be 
available in the AD docket shortly after the Docket Management System 
receives them.

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 the regulation:
    1. Is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under Executive Order

List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39

    Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by 
reference, Safety.

Adoption of the Amendment

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

PART 39--AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES

0
1. The authority citation for part 39 continues to read as follows:

    Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701.


Sec.  39.13  [Amended]

0
2. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) amends Sec.  39.13 by 
removing amendment 39-14742 (71 FR 51990, September 1, 2006) and adding 
the following new AD:

2006-22-06 Bombardier, Inc. (Formerly Canadair): Docket No. FAA-
2006-26118; Directorate Identifier 2006-NM-226-AD; Amendment 39-
14803.

Effective Date

    (a) This AD becomes effective November 14, 2006.

Affected ADs

    (b) This AD supersedes AD 2006-18-04.

Applicability

    (c) This AD applies to Bombardier Model CL-600-2B16 (CL-604) 
airplanes, serial numbers 5301 through 5665 inclusive; and Model CL-
600-2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes, serial numbers 
7003 through 7990 inclusive and 8000 through 8066 inclusive; 
certificated in any category.

    Note 1: The Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) 
airplanes may be referred to by their marketing designations as 
RJ100, RJ200, RJ440, CRJ100, CRJ200, CRJ440, and CL-65.

Unsafe Condition

    (d) This AD results from reports of uncommanded horizontal 
stabilizer trim motion. We are issuing this AD to ensure that the 
flightcrew is advised of appropriate procedures to follow in the 
event of uncommanded movement or stabilizer trim runaway. Failure to 
follow these procedures could result in excessive uncommanded 
movement of the horizontal stabilizer trim actuator (HSTA) and loss 
of ability to use trim switches to override uncommanded movement or 
yoke disconnect switches to disconnect the HSTA, which could result 
in reduction of or loss of pitch control and consequent reduced 
controllability of the airplane.

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.

Restatement of Requirements of AD 2006-18-04

Airplane Flight Manual (AFM) Revision

    (f) Within 7 days after September 1, 2006 (the effective date of
