ACTION: Notice of proposed special conditions. SUMMARY: This action proposes special conditions for the Boeing Model 787–8 airplane. This airplane will have novel or unusual design features when compared to the state of technology envisioned in the airworthiness standards for transport category airplanes. The Boeing Model 787–8 airplane will incorporate a fuel tank nitrogen generation system (NGS) that actively reduces flammability exposure within the main fuel tanks significantly below that required by the fuel tank flammability regulations. Among other benefits, this significantly reduces the potential for fuel vapor ignition caused by lightning strikes. The applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for this design feature. These proposed special conditions contain the additional safety standards that the Administrator considers necessary to establish a level of safety equivalent to VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:31 Oct 13, 2009 Jkt 220001 Background On March 28, 2003, The Boeing Company applied for an FAA type PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 certificate for its new Boeing Model 787–8 passenger airplane. The Boeing Model 787–8 airplane will be a new design, two-engine turbo-jet transport category airplane with a two-aisle cabin configuration. The maximum takeoff weight will be 484,000 pounds, and it will carry a maximum of 381 passengers. Type Certification Basis Under provisions of 14 CFR 21.17, Boeing must show that Boeing Model 787–8 airplanes (hereafter referred to as ‘‘the 787’’) meet the applicable provisions of 14 CFR part 25, as amended by Amendments 25–1 through 25–117, with three exceptions. Sections 25.809(a) and 25.812 will remain as amended by Amendment 25–115, and § 25.981, which will be as amended by Amendment 25–125 in accordance with 14 CFR 26.37. If the Administrator finds that the applicable airworthiness regulations (i.e., part 25) do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for the 787 because of novel or unusual design features, special conditions are prescribed under provisions of 14 CFR 21.16. In addition to the applicable airworthiness regulations and special conditions, the 787 must comply with the fuel vent and exhaust emission requirements of 14 CFR part 34 and the noise certification requirements of 14 CFR part 36. Finally, the FAA must also issue a finding of regulatory adequacy under § 611 of Public Law 92–574, the ‘‘Noise Control Act of 1972.’’ Special conditions, as defined in 14 CFR 11.19, are issued in accordance with § 11.38 and become part of the type certification basis in accordance with § 21.17(a)(2). Special conditions are initially applicable to the model for which they are issued. Should the type certificate for that model be amended later to include any other model that incorporates the same or similar novel or unusual design features, the special conditions would also apply to the other model under § 21.101. Novel or Unusual Design Features The proposed 787 will have a fuel tank NGS that is intended to control fuel tank flammability. This NGS is designed to provide a level of performance that will reduce the warm day fleet average wing fuel tank flammability significantly below the maximum wing fuel tank flammability limits set in § 25.981(b), as amended by Amendment 25–125. This high level of wing fuel tank NGS performance is an unusual design feature not envisioned at the E:\FR\FM\14OCP1.SGM 14OCP1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction

person is not required to respond to, a collection of information 
unless it displays a currently valid Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB) control number. The collection of information contained in this 
proposed rule is being submitted to OMB for review.
    Comment is solicited on:
    (1) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for 
the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including 
whether the information will have practical utility;

those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate 
automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology; e.g., permitting 
electronic submission of responses; and
    (5) Estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, 
maintenance, and purchases of services to provide information.
    Summary of the collections: (1) An information collection would 
occur when an insured depository institution applies to the FDIC for an 
exemption from all or part of its assessment prepayment; the 
application would explain why the prepayment would significantly impair 
the institution's liquidity, or would otherwise create significant 
hardship, would contain a full explanation of the need for the 
exemption and include supporting documentation, such as current

management's plans to correct the circumstances that caused the 
inability to pay the assessment, and any other relevant information, 
including any information the FDIC may request. (2) An information
