SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion We received reports of problems with the installation of the Kelly Aerospace Thermal Systems Thermawing Deice System (also known as E-Vade) on Columbia Aircraft Manufacturing Models LC41–550FG and LC42–550FG airplanes following Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) SA02260CH. A short circuit condition at the deice heater connector to the copper mesh material imbedded in the composite airplane structure (for lightning protection) caused burning of the wings and horizontal stabilizer, which created holes in the structure. The short circuit was caused by insufficient removal of copper mesh when the deice heater connectors were installed. This condition, if not corrected, could cause damage to the wings and horizontal stabilizer resulting in reduced structural integrity of the airplane. Relevant Service Information We reviewed Kelly Aerospace Thermal Systems Service Letter Bulletin No. SL–06–001, Issue Date: November 15, 2006. The service information describes procedures for disabling the E–Vade system. E:\FR\FM\11DER1.SGM 11DER1 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 237 / Monday, December 11, 2006 / Rules and Regulations FAA’s Determination and Requirements of This AD We are issuing this AD because we evaluated all the information and determined the unsafe condition described previously is likely to exist or develop on other products of the same type design. This AD requires disabling the E–Vade system and installing a placard in clear view of the pilot. In preparing this rule, we contacted type clubs and aircraft operators to get technical information and information on operational and economic impacts. We did not receive any information through these contacts. If received, we would have included a discussion of any information that may have influenced this action in the rulemaking docket. FAA’s Determination of the Effective Date Since an unsafe condition exists that requires the immediate adoption of this AD, we determined that notice and opportunity for public comment before issuing this AD are impracticable, and that good cause exists for making this amendment effective in fewer than 30 days. Comments Invited This AD is a final rule that involves requirements affecting flight safety, and we did not precede it by notice and an opportunity for public comment. We invite you to send any written relevant data, views, or arguments regarding this AD. Send your comments to an address listed under the ADDRESSES section. Include the docket number ‘‘FAA– 2006–26400; Directorate Identifier 2006–CE–71–AD’’ at the beginning of your comments.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion

    We received reports of problems with the installation of the Kelly 
Aerospace Thermal Systems Thermawing Deice System (also known as E-
Vade) on Columbia Aircraft Manufacturing Models LC41-550FG and LC42-
550FG airplanes following Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) 
SA02260CH.
    A short circuit condition at the deice heater connector to the 
copper mesh material imbedded in the composite airplane structure (for 
lightning protection) caused burning of the wings and horizontal 
stabilizer, which created holes in the structure.
    The short circuit was caused by insufficient removal of copper mesh 
when the deice heater connectors were installed.
    This condition, if not corrected, could cause damage to the wings 
and horizontal stabilizer resulting in reduced structural integrity of 
the airplane.

Relevant Service Information

    We reviewed Kelly Aerospace Thermal Systems Service Letter Bulletin 
No. SL-06-001, Issue Date: November 15, 2006. The service information 
describes procedures for disabling the E-Vade system.

[[Page 71479]]

FAA's Determination and Requirements of This AD

    We are issuing this AD because we evaluated all the information and 
determined the unsafe condition described previously is likely to exist 
or develop on other products of the same type design. This AD requires 
disabling the E-Vade system and installing a placard in clear view of 
the pilot.
    In preparing this rule, we contacted type clubs and aircraft 
operators to get technical information and information on operational 
and economic impacts. We did not receive any information through these 
contacts. If received, we would have included a discussion of any 
information that may have influenced this action in the rulemaking 
docket.

FAA's Determination of the Effective Date

    Since an unsafe condition exists that requires the immediate 
adoption of this AD, we determined that notice and opportunity for 
public comment before issuing this AD are impracticable, and that good 
cause exists for making this amendment effective in fewer than 30 days.

Comments Invited

    This AD is a final rule that involves requirements affecting flight 
safety, and we did not precede it by notice and an opportunity for 
public comment. We invite you to send any written relevant data, views, 
or arguments regarding this AD. Send your comments to an address listed 
under the ADDRESSES section. Include the docket number ``FAA-2006-
26400; Directorate Identifier 2006-CE-71-AD'' at the beginning of your 
comments. We specifically invite comments on the overall regulatory, 
economic, environmental, and energy aspects of the AD. We will consider 
all comments received by the closing date and may amend the AD in light 
of those comments.
    We will post all comments we receive, without change, to https://
dms.dot.gov, including any personal information you provide. We will 
also post a report summarizing each substantive verbal contact we 
receive concerning this AD.

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 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 regulatory evaluation of the estimated costs to 
comply with this AD and placed it in the AD docket.

Examining the AD Docket

    You may examine the AD docket that contains the AD, the regulatory 
evaluation, any comments received, and other information on the 
Internet at https://dms.dot.gov; or in person at the Docket Management 
Facility between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except 
Federal holidays. The Docket Office (telephone (800) 647-5227) is 
located at the street address stated in the ADDRESSES section. Comments 
will be available in the AD docket shortly after receipt.
