The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD), which applies to certain Airbus Model A318–100, A319–100, A320–200, A321– 100, and A321–200 series airplanes; and Model A320–111 airplanes. That AD currently requires modification of the electrical bonding of all structures and systems installed inside the center fuel tank. This new AD requires modification of additional bonding points inside the center fuel tank. This AD results from a report that additional bonding points need to be modified in order to prevent electrical arcing in the center fuel tank. We are issuing this AD to prevent electrical arcing in the center fuel tank due to inadequate bonding, which could result in an explosion of the center fuel tank and consequent loss of the airplane. DATES: This AD becomes effective May 8, 2007. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in the AD as of May 8, 2007. On October 26, 2005 (70 FR 55228, September 21, 2005), the Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of Airbus Service Bulletin A320–28–1104, Revision 01, dated December 8, 2004.

Contact Airbus, 1 Rond Point Maurice Bellonte, 31707 Blagnac Cedex, France, SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Discussion The FAA issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 to include an AD that supersedes AD 2005–19–14, amendment 39–14279 (70 FR 55228, September 21, 2005). The existing AD applies to certain Airbus Model A318–100, A319– 100, A320–200, A321–100, and A321– 200 series airplanes; and Model A320– 111 airplanes. That NPRM was published in the Federal Register on January 12, 2007 (72 FR 1467). That NPRM proposed to continue to require modification of the electrical bonding of all structures and systems installed inside the center fuel tank. That NPRM also proposed to require modification of additional bonding points inside the center fuel tank. Comments We provided the public the opportunity to participate in the development of this AD. No comments have been received on the NPRM 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. Costs of Compliance The following table provides the estimated costs for U.S. operators to comply with this AD. There are approximately 720 U.S.-registered airplanes. The average labor rate is $80 per work hour. E:\FR\FM\03APR1.SGM 03APR1 15813 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 63 / Tuesday, April 3, 2007 / Rules and Regulations ESTIMATED COSTS Action Work hours Parts Modification of electrical bonding (required by AD 2005–19–14).

Between $417,600 and $475,200. rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with RULES 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 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.

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A318, A319, A320, and A321 
Airplanes

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

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive 
(AD), which applies to certain Airbus Model A318-100, A319-100, A320-
200, A321-100, and A321-200 series airplanes; and Model A320-111 
airplanes. That AD currently requires modification of the electrical 
bonding of all structures and systems installed inside the center fuel 
tank. This new AD requires modification of additional bonding points 
inside the center fuel tank. This AD results from a report that 
additional bonding points need to be modified in order to prevent 
electrical arcing in the center fuel tank. We are issuing this AD to 
prevent electrical arcing in the center fuel tank due to inadequate 
bonding, which could result in an explosion of the center fuel tank and 
consequent loss of the airplane.

DATES: This AD becomes effective May 8, 2007.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of certain publications listed in the AD as of May 8, 2007.
    On October 26, 2005 (70 FR 55228, September 21, 2005), the Director 
of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of 
Airbus Service Bulletin A320-28-1104, Revision 01, dated December 8, 
2004.

ADDRESSES: You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at http://

(telephone (800) 647-5227) is located on the plaza level of the Nassif 
Building at the street address stated in the ADDRESSES section.

Discussion

    The FAA issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 
CFR part 39 to include an AD that supersedes AD 2005-19-14, amendment 
39-14279 (70 FR 55228, September 21, 2005). The existing AD applies to 
certain Airbus Model A318-100, A319-100, A320-200, A321-100, and A321-
200 series airplanes; and Model A320-111 airplanes. That NPRM was 
published in the Federal Register on January 12, 2007 (72 FR 1467). 
That NPRM proposed to continue to require modification of the 
electrical bonding of all structures and systems installed inside the 
center fuel tank. That NPRM also proposed to require modification of 
additional bonding points inside the center fuel tank.

Comments

    We provided the public the opportunity to participate in the 
development of this AD. No comments have been received on the NPRM 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.

Costs of Compliance

    The following table provides the estimated costs for U.S. operators 
to comply with this AD. There are approximately 720 U.S.-registered 
airplanes. The average labor rate is $80 per work hour.

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 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.
