ADDRESSES Discussion The FAA issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 to include an AD that supersedes AD 2005–12–05, amendment 39–14121 (70 FR 34316, June 14, 2005). (A correction of that AD was published in the Federal Register on June 28, 2005 (70 FR 37152).) The existing AD applies to Boeing Model 737–200, –300, –400, –500, –600, –700, –800, and –900 series airplanes; Boeing Model 757–200 and –300 series airplanes; and McDonnell Douglas Model DC–10–10, DC–10–10F, DC–10–30, DC–10–30F, DC–10–40, MD– 10–10F, MD–10–30F, MD–11, and MD– 11F airplanes. That NPRM was published in the Federal Register on January 19, 2007 (72 FR 2475). That NPRM proposed to continue to require modification of the reinforced flight deck door and other actions related to the reinforced flight deck door. Those other actions include modifying the door, inspecting and modifying wiring in the area, and revising the maintenance program to require more frequent testing of the decompression panels of the flight deck door. That NPRM also proposed to add airplanes to the existing requirement of a one-time inspection for chafing of wire bundles in the area of the flight deck door and corrective actions if necessary. That NPRM also proposed to remove certain airplanes from the applicability. Comments We provided the public the opportunity to participate in the development of this AD. We have considered the comments that have been received on the NPRM. Support for the NPRM Boeing, United Airlines, and the Air Line Pilots Association, International (ALPA) support the intent of the NPRM. Request To Issue a Separate AD United Airlines requests that rather than superseding the existing AD, we issue a separate AD action since the new proposed actions are applicable only to the Model 737–300, –400, and –500 series airplanes. The commenter states that if the existing AD is superseded, numerous documents must be updated for all airplane models affected by the earlier actions. The commenter asserts that superseding an already complex compliance plan provides an opportunity for non-compliance and unnecessarily increases an operator’s workload. E:\FR\FM\23MYR1.SGM 23MYR1 28833 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 99 / Wednesday, May 23, 2007 / Rules and Regulations We acknowledge that the less burdensome approach is to issue a separate AD that applies only to the Model 737–300, –400, and –500 series airplanes. Further, our normal policy is to issue a separate AD when any new requirements would affect only a small portion of the affected airplanes, so that we do not burden operators with the workload associated with revising maintenance record entries. However, in this case, we determined that the existing AD needed to be superseded because we are also removing certain airplanes from the applicability. For certain operators, this final rule is relieving in nature. Therefore, we have not revised this AD in this regard. Clarification of Alternative Method of Compliance (AMOC) Paragraph We have revised this action to clarify the appropriate procedure for notifying the principal inspector before using any approved AMOC on any airplane to which the AMOC applies. Conclusion We have carefully reviewed the available data, including the comments that have been received, and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting the AD with the change described previously. We have determined that this change will neither increase the economic burden on any operator nor increase the scope of the AD. Costs of Compliance We have determined that about 1,047 additional airplanes (Model 737–300, –400, and –500 series airplanes) in the worldwide fleet are subject to this AD; therefore, there are now about 3,423 airplanes of the affected design in the worldwide fleet. The following table provides the estimated costs, at an average labor rate of $80 per work hour, for U.S. operators to comply with this AD.

Authority for This Rulemaking cprice-sewell on PROD1PC71 with RULES Cost per airplane Parts 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. VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:35 May 22, 2007 Jkt 211001 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 PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 E:\FR\FM\23MYR1.SGM 23MYR1 28834 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 99 / Wednesday, May 23, 2007 / Rules and Regulations 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.

On February 1, 2006, the FAA published the notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM), ‘‘Passenger Facility Charge Program, Debt Service, Air Carrier Bankruptcy, and Miscellaneous Changes’’ (71 FR 5188) to address the remaining mandates in Vision 100. These mandates include: (1) Making low-emission airport vehicles and ground support equipment eligible for PFC funding, (2) Using PFCs to pay debt service on projects that are ‘‘not an eligible airportrelated project’’ when there is a financial need at an airport, (3) Clarifying the PFC status of military charters, (4) Structuring PFC account requirements for carriers in bankruptcy, and (5) Making eligible the use of PFC revenue as local share for projects under the air traffic modernization costsharing program. In addition, the FAA is adopting other changes that streamline benefits beyond those contained in the 2005 final rule. These changes will: (1) Provide for the electronic filing of notices and reports, (2) Provide a process for periodic review and change of the carrier compensation level, and (3) Modify the content and due date for some public agency reports and notices.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: AGENCY: Authority for This Rulemaking The FAA’s authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is found in Title 49 of the United States Code. 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. This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40117. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to impose a passenger facility fee to finance eligible airport-related projects. This regulation is within the scope of that authority because Vision 100 requires the FAA to change the PFC program. Many actions in this document are in response to Vision 100. SUMMARY: This final rule amends FAA regulations dealing with the Passenger Facility Charge (PFC) program to add more eligible uses for revenue, protect such revenue in bankruptcy proceedings, and eliminate charges to passengers on military charters. These changes respond to the Vision 100— Century of Aviation Reauthorization Act. This final rule also revises current reporting requirements to reflect technological improvements, and to clarify and update existing references and regulations. This final rule further streamlines the existing policies of the PFC program. DATES: This amendment becomes effective June 22, 2007. Background On March 23, 2005, the FAA published a final rule establishing a 3year pilot program for non-hub airports to test new application and application approval procedures for the PFC program (70 FR 14928). The 2005 final rule contains several changes designed to streamline the PFC application and amendment procedures for all PFC applications and amendments, thereby improving the entire PFC program. The FAA published the 2005 final rule to address Congressional mandates in the Vision 100—Century of Aviation Reauthorization Act (Vision 100). The non-hub pilot program, with the PFC application streamlining procedures, however, was only one of six mandates specified in Vision 100.

Transportation (DOT).

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive 
(AD), which applies to certain transport category airplanes identified 
above. That AD currently requires modification of the reinforced flight 
deck door and other actions related to the reinforced flight deck door. 
Those other actions include modifying the door, inspecting and 
modifying wiring in the area, and revising the maintenance program to 
require more frequent testing of the decompression panels of the flight 
deck door. This new AD continues to require the existing requirements. 
This new AD adds airplanes to the existing requirement of a one-time 
inspection for chafing of wire bundles in the area of the flight deck 
door and corrective actions if necessary. This proposed AD also removes 
certain airplanes from the applicability. This AD results from a report 
of smoke and fumes in the cockpit of a Model 737-300 series airplane. 
We are issuing this AD to prevent inadvertent release of the 
decompression latch and consequent opening of the decompression panel 
in the flight deck door, or penetration of the flight deck door by 
smoke, any of which could result in injury to the airplane flightcrew. 
We are also proposing this AD to detect and correct wire chafing, which 
could result in arcing, fire, and/or reduced controllability of the 
airplane.

DATES: This AD becomes effective June 27, 2007.
    On July 19, 2005 (70 FR 34316, June 14, 2005), the Director of the 
Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain

Discussion

    The FAA issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 
CFR part 39 to include an AD that supersedes AD 2005-12-05, amendment 
39-14121 (70 FR 34316, June 14, 2005). (A correction of that AD was 
published in the Federal Register on June 28, 2005 (70 FR 37152).) The 
existing AD applies to Boeing Model 737-200, -300, -400, -500, -600, -
700, -800, and -900 series airplanes; Boeing Model 757-200 and -300 
series airplanes; and McDonnell Douglas Model DC-10-10, DC-10-10F, DC-
10-30, DC-10-30F, DC-10-40, MD-10-10F, MD-10-30F, MD-11, and MD-11F 
airplanes. That NPRM was published in the Federal Register on January 
19, 2007 (72 FR 2475). That NPRM proposed to continue to require 
modification of the reinforced flight deck door and other actions 
related to the reinforced flight deck door. Those other actions include 
modifying the door, inspecting and modifying wiring in the area, and 
revising the maintenance program to require more frequent testing of 
the decompression panels of the flight deck door. That NPRM also 
proposed to add airplanes to the existing requirement of a one-time 
inspection for chafing of wire bundles in the area of the flight deck 
door and corrective actions if necessary. That NPRM also proposed to 
remove certain airplanes from the applicability.

Comments

    We provided the public the opportunity to participate in the 
development of this AD. We have considered the comments that have been 
received on the NPRM.

Support for the NPRM

    Boeing, United Airlines, and the Air Line Pilots Association, 
International (ALPA) support the intent of the NPRM.

Request To Issue a Separate AD

    United Airlines requests that rather than superseding the existing 
AD, we issue a separate AD action since the new proposed actions are 
applicable only to the Model 737-300, -400, and -500 series airplanes. 
The commenter states that if the existing AD is superseded, numerous 
documents must be updated for all airplane models affected by the 
earlier actions. The commenter asserts that superseding an already 
complex compliance plan provides an opportunity for non-compliance and 
unnecessarily increases an operator's workload.

[[Page 28833]]

    We acknowledge that the less burdensome approach is to issue a 
separate AD that applies only to the Model 737-300, -400, and -500 
series airplanes. Further, our normal policy is to issue a separate AD 
when any new requirements would affect only a small portion of the 
affected airplanes, so that we do not burden operators with the 
workload associated with revising maintenance record entries. However, 
in this case, we determined that the existing AD needed to be 
superseded because we are also removing certain airplanes from the 
applicability. For certain operators, this final rule is relieving in 
nature. Therefore, we have not revised this AD in this regard.

Clarification of Alternative Method of Compliance (AMOC) Paragraph

    We have revised this action to clarify the appropriate procedure 
for notifying the principal inspector before using any approved AMOC on 
any airplane to which the AMOC applies.

Conclusion

    We have carefully reviewed the available data, including the 
comments that have been received, and determined that air safety and 
the public interest require adopting the AD with the change described 
previously. We have determined that this change will neither increase 
the economic burden on any operator nor increase the scope of the AD.

Costs of Compliance

    We have determined that about 1,047 additional airplanes (Model 
737-300, -400, and -500 series airplanes) in the worldwide fleet are 
subject to this AD; therefore, there are now about 3,423 airplanes of 
the affected design in the worldwide fleet. The following table 
provides the estimated costs, at an average labor rate of $80 per work 
hour, for U.S. operators to comply with 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 have determined that this AD will not have federalism 
implications under Executive Order 13132. This AD will not have a 
substantial direct effect on

[[Page 28834]]

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.

Unsafe Condition

    (d) This AD results from a report of smoke and fumes in the 
cockpit of a Model 737-300 series airplane. We are issuing this AD 
to prevent inadvertent release of the decompression latch and 
consequent opening of the decompression panel in the flight deck 
door, or penetration of the flight deck door by smoke, any of which 
could result in injury to the airplane flightcrew. We are also 
issuing this AD to detect and correct wire chafing, which could 
result in arcing, fire, and/or 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 2005-12-05

    Note 2: For the purposes of this AD, a general visual inspection 
is ``a visual examination of an interior or exterior area, 
installation or assembly to detect obvious damage, failure or 
irregularity. This level of inspection is made from within touching 
distance unless otherwise specified. A mirror may be necessary to 
ensure visual access to all surfaces in the inspection area. This 
level of inspection is made under normal available lighting 
conditions such as daylight, hangar lighting, flashlight or drop-
light and may require removal or opening of access panels or doors. 
Stands, ladders or platforms may be required to gain proximity to 
the area being checked.''

Parts Installation

    (n) As of July 19, 2005, no person may install a reinforced 
flight deck door under any STC listed in Table 1 of this AD, on any 
airplane, unless all applicable requirements of this AD have been
