ACTION: Final rule. SUMMARY: The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD), which applies to certain Airbus Model A300 and A310 series airplanes. That AD currently requires replacement of the nose landing gear drag strut upper attachment pin. This new AD requires revising the Airworthiness Limitations section (ALS) of the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness (ICA) to require additional life limits and/or replacements for certain main landing gear and nose landing gear components, and also expands the applicability. This AD results from revisions to the ALS of the ICA to include new or more restrictive life limits and/or replacements. We are issuing this AD to ensure the continued structural integrity of these airplanes. DATES: This AD becomes effective October 27, 2009. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in the AD as of October 27, 2009.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion The FAA issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 to include an AD that supersedes AD 87–16–06, amendment 39–5692 (52 FR 28241, July 29, 1987). The existing AD applies to certain Airbus Model A300 and A310 series airplanes. That NPRM was published in the Federal Register on April 1, 2009 (74 FR 14751). That NPRM proposed to continue to require replacement of the nose landing gear drag strut upper attachment pin. That NPRM also proposed to require revising the Airworthiness Limitations section (ALS) of the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness (ICA) to require additional life limits and/or replacements for certain main landing gear and nose landing gear components, and would also expand 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. Request To Add Grace Period TradeWinds Airlines requests that we add a ‘‘grace period’’ to the life limit placed on the nose landing gear (NLG) shock absorber bottom, part number (P/N) C62037–1, listed in Table 1 of the NPRM, as referenced in paragraph (h)(1)(i) of the NPRM. TradeWinds explains that this component was not listed in Chapter 5 of the Airbus A300 Airplane Maintenance Manual (AMM) and had no corresponding FAA AD issued against it. Therefore, for U.S. operators, there was never a requirement to track the life limit. TradeWinds suggests a grace period of the next NLG overhaul or restoration be added so this internal component can be replaced without unscheduled removal from the airplane. We do not agree that it is necessary to add a grace period based on the operator’s next overhaul or restoration. Maintenance schedules vary among operators; there is no assurance that the overhaul or restoration would occur within the maximum interval of time allowable for the affected airplanes to operate safely. However, under the provisions of paragraph (l) of this AD, we will consider requests for adjustments to the compliance time if data are submitted to substantiate that such an adjustment would provide an acceptable level of safety. We have not changed the AD in this regard. Information Letter (SIL) 32–118, Revision 02, dated October 24, 2007, as referenced in paragraph (j) of the NPRM. TradeWinds requests a note or some clarification to describe the use or application of the SIL as it pertains to the AD. We agree with the request to clarify the purpose of the SIL. We have added Note 2 to the AD to include the following information from page 1 of the SIL: Note 2: Airbus Service Information Letter 32–118, Revision 02, dated October 24, 2007, provides operators with guidance on the means to assign a conservative calculated life to parts whose history of accumulated landings is partial or unknown; and to select the limitations applicable to parts whose history of application details (aircraft type, aircraft model, weight variant, etc.) is partial or unknown. 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 Request To Clarify Purpose of Service Information Letter (SIL) TradeWinds Airlines requests that we clarify the purpose of Airbus Service The following table provides the estimated costs for U.S. operators to comply with this AD.

14 CFR Part 39

[Docket No. FAA-2009-0292; Directorate Identifier 2008-NM-011-AD; 
Amendment 39-16011; AD 2009-18-15]
RIN 2120-AA64


Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A300, A310, and A300-600 
Series Airplanes

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

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive 
(AD), which applies to certain Airbus Model A300 and A310 series 
airplanes. That AD currently requires replacement of the nose landing 
gear drag strut upper attachment pin. This new AD requires revising the 
Airworthiness Limitations section (ALS) of the Instructions for 
Continued Airworthiness (ICA) to require additional life limits and/or 
replacements for certain main landing gear and nose landing gear 
components, and also expands the applicability. This AD results from 
revisions to the ALS of the ICA to include new or more restrictive life 
limits and/or replacements. We are issuing this AD to ensure the 
continued structural integrity of these airplanes.

DATES: This AD becomes effective October 27, 2009.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of certain publications listed in the AD as of October 27, 
2009.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Discussion

    The FAA issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 
CFR part 39 to include an AD that supersedes AD 87-16-06, amendment 39-
5692 (52 FR 28241, July 29, 1987). The existing AD applies to certain 
Airbus Model A300 and A310 series airplanes. That NPRM was published in 
the Federal Register on April 1, 2009 (74 FR 14751). That NPRM proposed 
to continue to require replacement of the nose landing gear drag strut 
upper attachment pin. That NPRM also proposed to require revising the 
Airworthiness Limitations section (ALS) of the Instructions for 
Continued Airworthiness (ICA) to require additional life limits and/or 
replacements for certain main landing gear and nose landing gear 
components, and would also expand 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.

Request To Add Grace Period

    TradeWinds Airlines requests that we add a ``grace period'' to the 
life limit placed on the nose landing gear (NLG) shock absorber bottom, 
part number (P/N) C62037-1, listed in Table 1 of the NPRM, as 
referenced in paragraph (h)(1)(i) of the NPRM. TradeWinds explains that 
this component was not listed in Chapter 5 of the Airbus A300 Airplane 
Maintenance Manual (AMM) and had no corresponding FAA AD issued against 
it. Therefore, for U.S. operators, there was never a requirement to 
track the life limit. TradeWinds suggests a grace period of the next 
NLG overhaul or restoration be added so this internal component can be 
replaced without unscheduled removal from the airplane.
    We do not agree that it is necessary to add a grace period based on 
the operator's next overhaul or restoration. Maintenance schedules vary 
among operators; there is no assurance that the overhaul or restoration 
would occur within the maximum interval of time allowable for the 
affected airplanes to operate safely. However, under the provisions of 
paragraph (l) of this AD, we will consider requests for adjustments to 
the compliance time if data are submitted to substantiate that such an 
adjustment would provide an acceptable level of safety. We have not 
changed the AD in this regard.

Request To Clarify Purpose of Service Information Letter (SIL)

    TradeWinds Airlines requests that we clarify the purpose of Airbus 
Service Information Letter (SIL) 32-118, Revision 02, dated October 24, 
2007, as referenced in paragraph (j) of the NPRM. TradeWinds requests a 
note or some clarification to describe the use or application of the 
SIL as it pertains to the AD.
    We agree with the request to clarify the purpose of the SIL. We 
have added Note 2 to the AD to include the following information from 
page 1 of the SIL:

    Note 2:
    Airbus Service Information Letter 32-118, Revision 02, dated 
October 24, 2007, provides operators with guidance on the means to 
assign a conservative calculated life to parts whose history of 
accumulated landings is partial or unknown; and to select the 
limitations applicable to parts whose history of application details 
(aircraft type, aircraft model, weight variant, etc.) is partial or 
unknown.

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

    The following table provides the estimated costs 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 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

[[Page 48145]]

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.
