ALF502L–2 and ALF502L–2C Turbofan Engines Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of Transportation (DOT). ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). AGENCY: SUMMARY: The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Honeywell International Inc. ALF502L– 2 and ALF502L–2C turbofan engines with certain high-pressure compressor (HPC) first stage discs installed. This proposed AD would require performing a dimensional inspection to determine if excessive disc balance material was removed and a magnetic particle inspection if the disc passes the dimensional inspection. This proposed AD results from reports of discs found with excessive material removed from the balancing material of the disc. We are proposing this AD to prevent the discs from fracturing before reaching the currently published life limit. A disc fracture could result in an uncontained failure of the disc and damage to the airplane. We must receive any comments on this proposed AD by January 27, 2009.

The AD docket contains this proposed AD, the VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:53 Nov 26, 2008 Jkt 217001 regulatory evaluation, any comments received, and other information. The street address for the Docket Operations office (telephone (800) 647–5527) is the same as the Mail address provided in the ADDRESSES section. Comments will be available in the AD docket shortly after receipt. Discussion The HPC first stage disc has an area from which too much material could be removed during the balancing operation. We received reports of two HPC first stage discs with too much material removed from the balance material of the disc. Honeywell revised the engine overhaul manual to clarify the limits for removed balance material. Removing too much material from the balance area of the disc may result in a reduced fatigue life of the disc. This condition, if not corrected, could result in the disc fracturing before reaching its currently published life limit. A disc fracture could result in an uncontained failure of the disc and damage to the airplane. Relevant Service Information We have reviewed and approved the technical contents of Honeywell Alert Service Bulletin (ASB) ALF/LF A72– 1102, dated April 24, 2007, that describes procedures for inspecting the HPC first stage disc for missing balance material. FAA’s Determination and Requirements of the Proposed AD We have evaluated all pertinent information and identified an unsafe condition that is likely to exist or develop on other products of this same type design. We are proposing this AD, which would require at the next shop visit, but not later than 2,500 cycles-inservice after the effective date of this proposed AD, inspecting the HPC first stage disc for excessive missing balance material and a magnetic particle inspection. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this proposed AD would affect 148 engines installed on airplanes of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it would take about 3 work-hours per engine to perform the proposed actions, and that the average labor rate is $80 per work-hour. Required parts would cost about $21,000 per engine. Based on these figures, we estimate the total cost of the proposed AD to U.S. operators to be $3,143,520. PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 72371 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 proposed AD would not have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. This proposed AD would 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 the proposed 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. Would not have a significant economic impact, positive or negative, on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Discussion

    The HPC first stage disc has an area from which too much material 
could be removed during the balancing operation. We received reports of 
two HPC first stage discs with too much material removed from the 
balance material of the disc. Honeywell revised the engine overhaul 
manual to clarify the limits for removed balance material. Removing too 
much material from the balance area of the disc may result in a reduced 
fatigue life of the disc. This condition, if not corrected, could 
result in the disc fracturing before reaching its currently published 
life limit. A disc fracture could result in an uncontained failure of 
the disc and damage to the airplane.

Relevant Service Information

    We have reviewed and approved the technical contents of Honeywell 
Alert Service Bulletin (ASB) ALF/LF A72-1102, dated April 24, 2007, 
that describes procedures for inspecting the HPC first stage disc for 
missing balance material.

FAA's Determination and Requirements of the Proposed AD

    We have evaluated all pertinent information and identified an 
unsafe condition that is likely to exist or develop on other products 
of this same type design. We are proposing this AD, which would require 
at the next shop visit, but not later than 2,500 cycles-in-service 
after the effective date of this proposed AD, inspecting the HPC first 
stage disc for excessive missing balance material and a magnetic 
particle inspection.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this proposed AD would affect 148 engines 
installed on airplanes of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it would 
take about 3 work-hours per engine to perform the proposed actions, and 
that the average labor rate is $80 per work-hour. Required parts would 
cost about $21,000 per engine. Based on these figures, we estimate the 
total cost of the proposed AD to U.S. operators to be $3,143,520.

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 proposed AD would not have federalism 
implications under Executive Order 13132. This proposed AD would 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 the proposed 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. Would 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 proposed AD. You may get a copy of this summary at the 
address listed under ADDRESSES.
