Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 223 / Tuesday, November 20, 2007 / Rules and Regulations December 26, 2007 (the effective date of this AD), whichever occurs first: (1) Modify the engine electrical system by installing additional engine control unit (ECU) backup batteries following Diamond Aircraft Industries GmbH Work Instruction WI–OSB–42–050, Revision 2, dated September 10, 2007, as referenced in Diamond Aircraft Industries GmbH Optional Service Bulletin No. OSB–42–050\1, dated October 15, 2007. If your aircraft has Diamond Aircraft Industries GmbH Optional ¨ Design Change No. OAM 42–074 installed, you will need to show compliance with this paragraph through an alternative method of compliance (AMOC) in accordance with paragraph (g)(1) of this AD. (2) Incorporate Diamond Aircraft ¨ Temporary Revision AMM–TR–OAM–42– 129, dated July 11, 2007, into the FAAapproved maintenance program (e.g., maintenance manual). The owner/operator holding at least a private pilot certificate as authorized by section 43.7 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR 43.7) may do this action. Make an entry in the aircraft records showing compliance with this portion of the AD following section 43.9 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR 43.9). (3) Update the airplane flight manual (AFM) by inserting a copy of Diamond ¨ Aircraft Temporary Revision TR–OAM–42– 129, dated July 11, 2007, into the AFM. The owner/operator holding at least a private pilot certificate as authorized by section 43.7 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR 43.7) may do this action. Make an entry in the aircraft records showing compliance with this portion of the AD following section 43.9 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR 43.9). rmajette on PROD1PC64 with RULES FAA AD Differences Note: This AD differs from the MCAI and/ or service information as follows: (1) We believe that the batteries specified in the MCAI do not fully address the unsafe condition for U.S. registered airplanes. The batteries specified in the MCAI only provide approximately 10 minutes of backup electrical power to the engine full authority digital engine controls (FADECs) in the event of an aircraft electrical failure. In accordance with 14 CFR 23.1353(h), the FAA requires a minimum of 30 minutes of backup electrical power for the engine FADECs in the event of an aircraft electrical failure. To fully address the unsafe condition, Diamond Aircraft Industries GmbH has developed different part numbers and procedures for U.S.registered airplanes. These procedures require the installation of larger capacity batteries than the MCAI required. The batteries specified in Diamond Aircraft Industries GmbH Work Instruction WI–OSB– 42–050, Revision 2, dated September 10, 2007, will provide a minimum of 30 minutes of backup electrical power for the engine FADECs when installed in accordance with Diamond Aircraft Industries GmbH Work Instruction WI–OSB–42–050, Revision 2, dated September 10, 2007. We have discussed this difference with EASA, and they accepted that the FAA’s view is different to require installation of larger capacity batteries. VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:17 Nov 19, 2007 Jkt 214001 (2) Diamond Aircraft Industries GmbH Optional Service Bulletin No. OSB–42– 050\1, dated October 15, 2007, excludes aircraft with Diamond Aircraft Industries ¨ ¨ GmbH OAM No. OAM 42–074 installed because Diamond Aircraft Industries GmbH ¨ ¨ OAM No. OAM 42–074 adds equipment that is in the same location as the batteries in Diamond Aircraft Industries GmbH Optional Service Bulletin No. OSB–42–050\1, dated October 15, 2007. The unsafe condition still needs to be addressed in aircraft with ¨ Diamond Aircraft Industries GmbH OAM No. ¨ OAM 42–074 installed. Therefore, this AD does apply to aircraft with Diamond Aircraft ¨ ¨ Industries GmbH OAM No. OAM 42–074 installed and owners/operators of aircraft with Diamond Aircraft Industries GmbH ¨ ¨ OAM No. OAM 42–074 installed will need to seek an AMOC for those aircraft.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion Cessna issued Service Bulletin SB525B–24–02, dated January 10, 2007, to add fuses to the emergency electrical power relay circuits to protect aircraft wiring left unprotected in the original design. Since issuance of that service bulletin, the FAA received a report from Cessna of a Model 525B airplane experiencing an in-flight direct short between aircraft direct current (DC) power and ground with loss of numerous systems, tripped circuit breakers, and burned wiring adjacent to the power distribution panel. Cessna determined that a wiring alteration done following Cessna Citation Service Bulletin SB525B–24– 02, dated January 10, 2007, contributed to this direct short between aircraft DC power and ground. The service bulletin had incorrect alteration instructions, which if implemented, could cause a VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:17 Nov 19, 2007 Jkt 214001 direct short between aircraft DC power and ground. Failure or opening of power bus limiters in conjunction with incorporation of that service bulletin may result in loss of numerous systems and burned aircraft wiring. The instructions and wiring diagrams call for incorrectly connecting 28V DC to an annunciator panel where there should be a ground. Terminal 2 of circuit breaker HZ050 is left with no wiring connected. This results in a direct short. Cessna revised the service bulletin to include correct alteration instructions that would fully address the unsafe condition of unprotected wiring in the original design. This condition, if not corrected, could result in burned wiring and loss of various aircraft electrical systems. Relevant Service Information We reviewed Cessna Citation Service Bulletin SB525B–24–02, Revision 1, dated October 4, 2007. The service information describes procedures for incorporating electrical power relay circuit protection kit P/N SB525B–24– 02. The manufacturer intends that the actions specified in the service information adequately address the unsafe condition. 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 you to incorporate electrical power relay circuit protection kit P/N SB525B–24– 02. 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 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 this condition, if not corrected, could result in burned wiring and loss of various aircraft electrical systems. Therefore, we determined that notice and opportunity for public comment before issuing this AD are PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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– 2007–0198; Directorate Identifier 2007– CE–085–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:// www.regulations.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: E:\FR\FM\20NOR1.SGM 20NOR1 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 223 / Tuesday, November 20, 2007 / Rules and Regulations (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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion

    Cessna issued Service Bulletin SB525B-24-02, dated January 10, 
2007, to add fuses to the emergency electrical power relay circuits to 
protect aircraft wiring left unprotected in the original design. Since 
issuance of that service bulletin, the FAA received a report from 
Cessna of a Model 525B airplane experiencing an in-flight direct short 
between aircraft direct current (DC) power and ground with loss of 
numerous systems, tripped circuit breakers, and burned wiring adjacent 
to the power distribution panel.
    Cessna determined that a wiring alteration done following Cessna 
Citation Service Bulletin SB525B-24-02, dated January 10, 2007, 
contributed to this direct short between aircraft DC power and ground. 
The service bulletin had incorrect alteration instructions, which if 
implemented, could cause a direct short between aircraft DC power and 
ground.
    Failure or opening of power bus limiters in conjunction with 
incorporation of that service bulletin may result in loss of numerous 
systems and burned aircraft wiring. The instructions and wiring 
diagrams call for incorrectly connecting 28V DC to an annunciator panel 
where there should be a ground. Terminal 2 of circuit breaker HZ050 is 
left with no wiring connected. This results in a direct short.
    Cessna revised the service bulletin to include correct alteration 
instructions that would fully address the unsafe condition of 
unprotected wiring in the original design.
    This condition, if not corrected, could result in burned wiring and 
loss of various aircraft electrical systems.

Relevant Service Information

    We reviewed Cessna Citation Service Bulletin SB525B-24-02, Revision 
1, dated October 4, 2007. The service information describes procedures 
for incorporating electrical power relay circuit protection kit P/N 
SB525B-24-02. The manufacturer intends that the actions specified in 
the service information adequately address the unsafe condition.

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 
you to incorporate electrical power relay circuit protection kit P/N 
SB525B-24-02.
    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

    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 this 
condition, if not corrected, could result in burned wiring and loss of 
various aircraft electrical systems. 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 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-2007-0198; 
Directorate Identifier 2007-CE-085-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://
www.regulations.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.

Adoption of the Amendment

0
Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, 
the FAA amends 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 FAA amends Sec.  39.13 by adding the following new airworthiness 
directive (AD):

2007-23-16 Cessna Aircraft Company: Amendment 39-15262; Docket No. 
FAA-2007-0198; Directorate Identifier 2007-CE-085-AD.

Effective Date

    (a) This AD becomes effective on December 19, 2007.

Affected ADs

    (b) None.

Applicability

    (c) This AD applies to Model 525B, serial numbers 0001 through 
0013 airplanes, that are certificated in any category.

Unsafe Condition

    (d) This AD results from both the need to protect aircraft 
wiring left unprotected in the original design and a report of a 
Model 525B airplane experiencing in-flight loss of numerous systems, 
tripped circuit breakers, and burned wiring adjacent to the power 
distribution panel. We are issuing this AD to correct an incorrect 
wiring installation and to provide short-circuit protection for all 
wiring from the aircraft power distribution system. This condition 
could result in burned wiring and loss of various aircraft 
electrical systems.

Compliance

    (e) To address this problem, you must do the following, unless 
already done:
