DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Aviation Administration 14 CFR Part 39 [Docket No. FAA–2007–29240; Directorate Identifier 2007–CE–076–AD; Amendment 39–15618; AD 2008–15–06] RIN 2120–AA64 Airworthiness Directives; Cessna Aircraft Company Models 175 and 175A Airplanes Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of Transportation (DOT). ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Cessna Aircraft Company (Cessna) Models 175 and 175A airplanes. This AD requires you to check the airplane logbook to determine if the original engine mounting brackets have been replaced. If the original engine mounting brackets are still installed, this AD requires you to repetitively inspect those brackets for cracks and replace any cracked engine mounting bracket. After replacing all four original engine mounting brackets, no further action will be required by this AD. This AD was prompted by a report that the engine became detached from the firewall during landing on one of the affected airplanes. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct cracks in the engine mounting brackets, which could result in failure of the engine mounting bracket. This failure could lead to the engine detaching from the firewall. DATES: This AD becomes effective on September 2, 2008. On September 2, 2008, the Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in this AD. ADDRESSES: For service information identified in this AD, contact Cessna Aircraft Company, Product Support, P.O. Box 7706, Wichita, Kansas 67277; telephone: (316) 517–5800; fax: (316) 942–9006.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion On March 31, 2008, we issued a proposal to amend part 39 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 39) to include an AD that would apply to certain Cessna Models 175 and 175A airplanes. This proposal was published in the Federal Register as a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) on April 8, 2008 (73 FR 19017). The NPRM proposed to require you to check the airplane logbook to determine if the original engine mounting brackets have been replaced. If the original engine mounting brackets are still installed, the NPRM proposed to require you to repetitively inspect those brackets for cracks and replace any cracked engine mounting bracket. After replacing all four original engine mounting brackets, no further action would be required by the NPRM. Comments We provided the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We received no comments on the proposal 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 except for minor editorial corrections. We have determined that these minor corrections: • Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the NPRM for correcting the unsafe condition; and • Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was already proposed in the NPRM. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this AD affects 1,218 airplanes in the U.S. registry. We estimate the following costs to do the inspection: Total cost per airplane Labor cost 7.5 work-hours × $80 per hour = $600 ........................ Not applicable ............................................................... Total cost on U.S. operators $600 Parts cost $730,800 hsrobinson on PROD1PC76 with RULES We estimate the following costs to do any necessary replacements: Labor cost Parts cost Total cost per airplane 3 work-hours per bracket × $80 per hour = $240 per bracket. 4 brackets per airplane × $240 per bracket = $960. $200 per bracket. 4 × $200 = $800 for all 4 brackets. $440 per bracket. $1,760 to replace all 4 brackets.

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 AD. 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 the 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 summary of the costs to comply with this AD (and other information as included in the Regulatory Evaluation) and placed it in the AD Docket.

Internet address: http://www.alaska.faa.gov/at. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: History On Thursday, May 29, 2008, the FAA proposed to amend part 71 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 71) to establish Class E airspace upward from 700 ft. and 1,200 ft. above the surface at Venetie, AK (73 FR 30820). The action was proposed in order to create Class E airspace PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 sufficient in size to contain aircraft while executing instrument procedures for the Venetie Airport. Class E controlled airspace extending upward from 700 ft. and 1,200 ft. above the surface in the Venetie Airport area is established by this action. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking proceeding by submitting written comments on the proposal to the FAA. No comments were received. The rule is adopted as proposed. The area will be depicted on aeronautical charts for pilot reference. The coordinates for this airspace docket are based on North American Datum 83. The Class E airspace areas designated as 700/1,200 ft. transition areas are published in paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9R, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, signed August 15, 2007, and effective September 15, 2007, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. The Rule This amendment to 14 CFR part 71 establishes Class E airspace at the Venetie Airport, Alaska. This Class E airspace is established to accommodate aircraft executing instrument procedures, and will be depicted on aeronautical charts for pilot reference. The intended effect of this rule is to provide adequate controlled airspace for Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) operations at the Venetie Airport, Venetie, Alaska. The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. It, therefore—(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) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the anticipated E:\FR\FM\29JYR1.SGM 29JYR1

Airworthiness Directives; Cessna Aircraft Company Models 175 and 
175A Airplanes

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

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain 
Cessna Aircraft Company (Cessna) Models 175 and 175A airplanes. This AD 
requires you to check the airplane logbook to determine if the original 
engine mounting brackets have been replaced. If the original engine 
mounting brackets are still installed, this AD requires you to 
repetitively inspect those brackets for cracks and replace any cracked 
engine mounting bracket. After replacing all four original engine 
mounting brackets, no further action will be required by this AD. This 
AD was prompted by a report that the engine became detached from the 
firewall during landing on one of the affected airplanes. We are 
issuing this AD to detect and correct cracks in the engine mounting 
brackets, which could result in failure of the engine mounting bracket. 
This failure could lead to the engine detaching from the firewall.

DATES: This AD becomes effective on September 2, 2008.
    On September 2, 2008, the Director of the Federal Register approved 
the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in this 
AD.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion

    On March 31, 2008, we issued a proposal to amend part 39 of the 
Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 39) to include an AD that 
would apply to certain Cessna Models 175 and 175A airplanes. This 
proposal was published in the Federal Register as a notice of proposed 
rulemaking (NPRM) on April 8, 2008 (73 FR 19017). The NPRM proposed to 
require you to check the airplane logbook to determine if the original 
engine mounting brackets have been replaced. If the original engine 
mounting brackets are still installed, the NPRM proposed to require you 
to repetitively inspect those brackets for cracks and replace any 
cracked engine mounting bracket. After replacing all four original 
engine mounting brackets, no further action would be required by the 
NPRM.

Comments

    We provided the public the opportunity to participate in developing 
this AD. We received no comments on the proposal 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 
except for minor editorial corrections. We have determined that these 
minor corrections:
     Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the 
NPRM for correcting the unsafe condition; and
     Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was 
already proposed in the NPRM.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this AD affects 1,218 airplanes in the U.S. 
registry.
    We estimate the following costs to do the inspection:

 
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                                  Total cost per   Total cost on
                  Labor cost                               Parts cost                airplane     U.S. operators
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
7.5 work-hours x $80 per hour = $600..........  Not applicable..................            $600        $730,800
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We estimate the following costs to do any necessary replacements:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                       Total cost per
         Labor cost                Parts cost             airplane
------------------------------------------------------------------------
3 work-hours per bracket x    $200 per bracket. 4   $440 per bracket.
 $80 per hour = $240 per       x $200 = $800 for     $1,760 to replace
 bracket. 4 brackets per       all 4 brackets.       all 4 brackets.
 airplane x $240 per bracket
 = $960.

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 AD.

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 the 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 summary of the costs to comply with this AD (and 
other information as included in the Regulatory Evaluation) and placed 
it in the AD Docket. You may get a copy of this summary by sending a 
request to us at the address listed under ADDRESSES. Include ``Docket 
No. FAA-2007-29240; Directorate Identifier 2007-CE-076-AD'' in your 
request.
