SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Streamlined Issuance of AD The FAA is implementing a new process for streamlining the issuance of ADs related to MCAI. The streamlined process will allow us to adopt MCAI safety requirements in a more efficient manner and will reduce safety risks to the public. This process continues to follow all FAA AD issuance processes to meet legal, economic, Administrative Procedure Act, and Federal Register requirements. We also continue to meet our technical decision-making responsibilities to identify and correct unsafe conditions on U.S.-certificated products. This AD references the MCAI and related service information that we considered in forming the engineering basis to correct the unsafe condition. The AD contains text copied from the MCAI and for this reason might not follow our plain language principles. Discussion The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the European E:\FR\FM\31MYR1.SGM 31MYR1 30252 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 104 / Thursday, May 31, 2007 / Rules and Regulations Community, has issued Emergency AD No: 2007–110–E, dated April 23, 2007 (referred to after this as ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for the specified products. The MCAI states: Installation of G-load monitoring units on some Zlin Z 42 series airplanes has revealed that certain aircraft during aerobatic manoeuvres exceeded the limit loads initially defined for the certification. As a consequence to restore the safety margins on aircraft operated in Utility (‘‘U’’) category; this Airworthiness Directive (AD) mandates a modification of the Airplane Flight Manual (AFM) so as to limit the permissible manoeuvres in ‘‘U’’ category flights. You may obtain further information by examining the MCAI in the AD. Relevant Service Information Moravan Aviation s.r.o. has issued Mandatory Service Bulletin Z242L/49a, dated February 15, 2007, which incorporates the AFM revision 8, dated November 24, 2006, which limits certain maneuvers in Utility Category. The actions described in this service information are intended to correct the unsafe condition identified in the MCAI. cprice-sewell on PRODPC61 with RULES FAA’s Determination and Requirements of the AD This product has been approved by the aviation authority of another country, and is approved for operation in the United States. Pursuant to our bilateral agreement with this State of Design Authority, they have notified us of the unsafe condition described in the MCAI and service information referenced above. We are issuing this AD because we evaluated all information provided by the State of Design Authority and determined the unsafe condition exists and is likely to exist or develop on other products of the same type design. Differences Between This AD and the MCAI or Service Information We have reviewed the MCAI and related service information and, in general, agree with their substance. But we might have found it necessary to use different words from those in the MCAI to ensure the AD is clear for U.S. operators and is enforceable. In making these changes, we do not intend to differ substantively from the information provided in the MCAI and related service information. We might have also required different actions in this AD from those in the MCAI in order to follow FAA policies. Any such differences are described in a separate paragraph of the AD. These requirements take precedence over those copied from the MCAI. VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:52 May 30, 2007 Jkt 211001 FAA’s Determination of the Effective Date An unsafe condition exists that requires the immediate adoption of this AD. The FAA has found that the risk to the flying public justifies waiving notice and comment prior to adoption of this rule, because there is a risk of structural damage in the wing area if the currently allowed maneuvers in the Utility Category are continued. It is imperative that the required limitations take effect immediately, so the operator is aware of these changes and does not exceed the new limits needed in order to maintain the integrity of the structure. Therefore, 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 opportunity for public comment. We invite you to send any written relevant data, views, or arguments about this AD. Send your comments to an address listed under the ADDRESSES section. Include ‘‘Docket No. FAA–2007–28114; Directorate Identifier 2007–CE–044– AD’’ at the beginning of your comments. We specifically invite comments on the overall regulatory, economic, environmental, and energy aspects of this AD. We will consider all comments received by the closing date and may amend this AD because of those comments. 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 we receive about 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 PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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.

Airworthiness Directives; MORAVAN a.s. Model Z242L Airplanes

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule; request for comments.

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

SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the 
products listed above. This AD results from mandatory continuing 
airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by the aviation authority of 
another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an 
aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as:

    Installation of G-load monitoring units on some Zlin Z 42 series 
airplanes has revealed that certain aircraft during aerobatic 
manoeuvres exceeded the limit loads initially defined for the 
certification.
    As a consequence to restore the safety margins on aircraft 
operated in Utility (``U'') category; this Airworthiness Directive 
(AD) mandates a modification of the Airplane Flight Manual (AFM) so 
as to limit the permissible manoeuvres in ``U'' category flights.

    This AD requires actions that are intended to address the unsafe 
condition described in the MCAI.

DATES: This AD becomes effective June 5, 2007.
    On June 5, 2007 the Director of the Federal Register approved the 
incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in this AD.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Streamlined Issuance of AD

    The FAA is implementing a new process for streamlining the issuance 
of ADs related to MCAI. The streamlined process will allow us to adopt 
MCAI safety requirements in a more efficient manner and will reduce 
safety risks to the public. This process continues to follow all FAA AD 
issuance processes to meet legal, economic, Administrative Procedure 
Act, and Federal Register requirements. We also continue to meet our 
technical decision-making responsibilities to identify and correct 
unsafe conditions on U.S.-certificated products.
    This AD references the MCAI and related service information that we 
considered in forming the engineering basis to correct the unsafe 
condition. The AD contains text copied from the MCAI and for this 
reason might not follow our plain language principles.

Discussion

    The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical 
Agent for the Member States of the European

[[Page 30252]]

Community, has issued Emergency AD No: 2007-110-E, dated April 23, 2007 
(referred to after this as ``the MCAI''), to correct an unsafe 
condition for the specified products. The MCAI states:

    Installation of G-load monitoring units on some Zlin Z 42 series 
airplanes has revealed that certain aircraft during aerobatic 
manoeuvres exceeded the limit loads initially defined for the 
certification.
    As a consequence to restore the safety margins on aircraft 
operated in Utility (``U'') category; this Airworthiness Directive 
(AD) mandates a modification of the Airplane Flight Manual (AFM) so 
as to limit the permissible manoeuvres in ``U'' category flights.

    You may obtain further information by examining the MCAI in the AD.

Relevant Service Information

    Moravan Aviation s.r.o. has issued Mandatory Service Bulletin 
Z242L/49a, dated February 15, 2007, which incorporates the AFM revision 
8, dated November 24, 2006, which limits certain maneuvers in Utility 
Category. The actions described in this service information are 
intended to correct the unsafe condition identified in the MCAI.

FAA's Determination and Requirements of the AD

    This product has been approved by the aviation authority of another 
country, and is approved for operation in the United States. Pursuant 
to our bilateral agreement with this State of Design Authority, they 
have notified us of the unsafe condition described in the MCAI and 
service information referenced above. We are issuing this AD because we 
evaluated all information provided by the State of Design Authority and 
determined the unsafe condition exists and is likely to exist or 
develop on other products of the same type design.

Differences Between This AD and the MCAI or Service Information

    We have reviewed the MCAI and related service information and, in 
general, agree with their substance. But we might have found it 
necessary to use different words from those in the MCAI to ensure the 
AD is clear for U.S. operators and is enforceable. In making these 
changes, we do not intend to differ substantively from the information 
provided in the MCAI and related service information.
    We might have also required different actions in this AD from those 
in the MCAI in order to follow FAA policies. Any such differences are 
described in a separate paragraph of the AD. These requirements take 
precedence over those copied from the MCAI.

FAA's Determination of the Effective Date

    An unsafe condition exists that requires the immediate adoption of 
this AD. The FAA has found that the risk to the flying public justifies 
waiving notice and comment prior to adoption of this rule, because 
there is a risk of structural damage in the wing area if the currently 
allowed maneuvers in the Utility Category are continued. It is 
imperative that the required limitations take effect immediately, so 
the operator is aware of these changes and does not exceed the new 
limits needed in order to maintain the integrity of the structure. 
Therefore, 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 opportunity for public 
comment. We invite you to send any written relevant data, views, or 
arguments about this AD. Send your comments to an address listed under 
the ADDRESSES section. Include ``Docket No. FAA-2007-28114; Directorate 
Identifier 2007-CE-044-AD'' at the beginning of your comments. We 
specifically invite comments on the overall regulatory, economic, 
environmental, and energy aspects of this AD. We will consider all 
comments received by the closing date and may amend this AD because of 
those comments.
    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 we 
receive about 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

[[Page 30253]]

Subject

    (d) Air Transport Association of America (ATA) Code 5: Time 
Limits.

Reason

    (e) The mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) 
states:

    Installation of G-load monitoring units on some Zlin Z 42 series 
airplanes has revealed that certain aircraft during aerobatic 
manoeuvres exceeded the limit loads initially defined for the 
certification.
    As a consequence to restore the safety margins on aircraft 
operated in Utility (``U'') category; this Airworthiness Directive 
(AD) mandates a modification of the Airplane Flight Manual (AFM) so 
as to limit the permissible manoeuvres in ``U'' category flights.

Actions and Compliance

    (f) Unless already done, within 10 days after June 5, 2007 (the 
effective date of this AD) modify the Limitations Section of the 
Airplane Flight Manual (AFM) following Moravan Aviation s.r.o. 
Mandatory Service Bulletin Z242L/49a, dated February 15, 2007, by 
incorporating AFM, revision 8, dated November 24, 2006.

FAA AD Differences

    Note: This AD differs from the MCAI and/or service information 
as follows: No differences.
