ACTION: Final rule. SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) to revise AD 2009–10–09, which applies to Cessna Aircraft Company (Cessna) 150 and 152 series airplanes. AD 2009–10– 09 requires either installing a placard prohibiting spins and other acrobatic maneuvers in the airplane or replacing the rudder stop, the rudder stop bumper, and the attachment hardware with a new rudder stop modification kit and replacing the safety wire with jamnuts. Since we issued AD 2009–10– 09, we became aware of a need to clarify certain model and serial number designations, remove the duplicate requirement of replacing the safety wire with jamnuts, and clarify the conditional acceptability of using modification kit part number (P/N) SK152–25 as a terminating action to this AD. Consequently, this AD retains the actions currently required in AD 2009– 10–09, corrects model designation for certain serial numbers, removes the duplicate requirement of replacing safety wire with jamnuts, and clarifies the conditional acceptability of using modification kit P/N SK152–25 as a terminating action to this AD. We are issuing this AD to prevent the rudder from traveling past the normal travel limit. Operation in this non-certificated control position is unacceptable and could cause undesirable consequences, such as contact between the rudder and the elevator. DATES: This AD becomes effective on December 11, 2009. As of June 17, 2009 (74 FR 22429, May 13, 2009), the Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of Cessna Aircraft Company Service Bulletin SEB01–1, dated January 22, 2001; Cessna Aircraft Company Service Kit SK152–25A, Revision A, dated February 9, 2001; and Cessna Aircraft Company Service Kit SK152–24A, Revision A, dated March 9, 2001, listed in this AD.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion On August 7, 2009, 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 150 and 152 series airplanes. This proposal was published in the Federal Register as a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) on August 14, 2009 (74 FR 41096). The NPRM proposed to revise AD 2009–10– 09 with a new AD that would retain the actions currently required in AD 2009– 10–09, correct model designation for certain serial numbers, remove the duplicate requirement to replace the safety wire with jamnuts, and clarify the conditional acceptability of using the P/ N SK152–25 kit as a terminating action to the proposed AD. 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. E:\FR\FM\06NOR1.SGM 06NOR1 57409 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 214 / Friday, November 6, 2009 / Rules and Regulations Costs of Compliance We estimate the following costs to do the insertion of the operational limitation: We estimate that this AD affects 17,090 airplanes in the U.S. registry. Labor cost Parts cost Total cost per airplane Total cost on U.S. operators 1 work-hour × $80 per hour = $80 .............................................................. Not applicable ................................ $80 $1,367,200 We estimate the following costs to do the modification: Labor cost Parts cost Total cost per airplane Total cost on U.S. operators 4 work-hours × $80 per hour = $320 .......................................................................................... $90 $410 $7,006,900 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–2007–27747; Directorate Identifier 2007–CE–030– AD’’ in your request.

We are issuing this AD to prevent the rudder from traveling past the normal travel limit. Operation in this noncertificated control position is unacceptable and could cause undesirable consequences, such as contact between the rudder and the elevator. Compliance (e) To address this problem, you must do either the actions in option 1 or option 2 of this AD, unless already done: Compliance Procedures (1) Option 1: For all airplanes that do not have modification kits part number (P/N) SK152– 25A or P/N SK152–24A installed, do the following: (i) Insert the following text into the Limitations section of the FAA-approved airplane flight manual (AFM), and pilots operating handbook (POH): ‘‘INTENTIONAL SPINS AND OTHER ACROBATIC/ AEROBATIC MANEUVERS PROHIBITED PER AD 2009–10–09. NOTE: THIS AD DOES NOT PROHIBIT PERFORMING INTENTIONAL STALLS.’’ (ii) Fabricate a placard (using at least 1⁄8inch letters) with the following words and install the placard on the instrument panel within the pilot’s clear view: ‘‘INTENTIONAL SPINS AND OTHER ACROBATIC/AEROBATIC MANEUVERS PROHIBITED PER AD 2009–10–09.’’. (iii) The AFM and POH limitations in paragraph (e)(1)(i) of the AD and the placard in paragraph (e)(1)(ii) of this AD may be removed after either paragraph (e)(2)(i) or paragraph (e)(2)(ii) of this AD is done. (2) Option 2: Install a rudder stop modification kit: (i) For airplanes with a forged bulkhead, replace the rudder stops, rudder stop bumpers, and attachment hardware with the new rudder stop modification kit P/N SK152–25A, which includes replacing the safety wire with jamnuts (ii) For airplanes with a sheet metal bulkhead, replace the rudder stops, rudder stop bumpers, and attachment hardware with the new rudder stop modification kit P/N SK152–24A, which includes replacing the safety wire with jamnuts. srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with RULES Actions Within the next 100 hours time-in-service (TIS) after June 17, 2009 (the effective date retained from AD 2009–10–09), or within the next 12 months after June 17, 2009 (the effective date retained from AD 2009–10–09), whichever occurs first. A person authorized to perform maintenance as specified in 14 CFR section 43.3 of the Federal Aviation Administration Regulations (14 CFR 43.3) is required to make the AFM and POH changes, fabricate the placard required in paragraph (e)(1)(i) of this AD, and make an entry into the aircraft logbook showing compliance with the portion of the AD per compliance with 14 CFR 43.9. Within the next 100 hours TIS after June 17, 2009 (the effective date retained from AD 2009–10–09), or within the next 12 months after June 17, 2009 (the effective date retained from AD 2009–10–09), whichever occurs first. Follow Cessna Aircraft Company Service Bulletin SEB01–1, dated January 22, 2001; and, as applicable, either Cessna Aircraft Company Service Kit SK152–25A, Revision A, dated February 9, 2001, or Cessna Aircraft Company Service Kit SK152–24A, Revision A, dated March 9, 2001. (f) Kit P/Ns SK152–24 and SK152–25, which are listed in SEB01–1, were superseded by kit P/Ns SK152–24A and SK152–25A. Cessna has not revised the service bulletin to reflect the new P/Ns. The kits P/Ns SK152–24 and SK152–25 will VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:06 Nov 05, 2009 Jkt 220001 automatically be filled with P/Ns SK152–24A and SK152–25A, respectively. (1) The P/N SK152–24 kit does not address the unsafe condition because the nutplate in the kit can not be used due to rivet spacing on the aft bulkhead. In addition, a note was added to kit P/N SK152–24A stating ‘‘some PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 airplanes in this serial range may have a forged bulkhead installed after leaving the factory. Service Kit SK152–25A or later revision must be used to modify these airplanes.’’ Therefore, kit P/N SK152–24 is not allowed for installation for this AD.

(h) AMOCs approved for AD 2009–10–09 are approved for this AD. srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with RULES (2) The P/N SK152–25 kit did not address the unsafe condition because a washer that was too small, P/N NAS1149FN832P, was included in the kit. This error was corrected in the P/N SK152–25A kit. If a P/N SK152– 25 kit is installed using the correct washer P/N NAS1149F0332P (and this information is recorded in the maintenance log), credit will be given for installing P/N SK152–25A kit because this was the only difference between the kits. (3) If you previously installed a kit P/N SK152–24 or a kit P/N SK152–25 with washer P/N NAS1149FN832P, and you choose the Option 2 kit installation to comply with this AD, then kit P/N SK152– 24A or either kit P/N SK152–25 with washer P/N NAS1149F0332P or kit P/N SK152–25A, as applicable, must be installed. (4) If a P/N SK152–25 kit was installed prior to this AD and the washer P/N used in the installation is unknown (not recorded in the maintenance log), and you wish to use Option 2 to comply with this AD, the installed washer must be replaced with a P/N NAS1149F0332P washer, and this work must be recorded in the maintenance log. 14 CFR Part 39 Material Incorporated by Reference (i) If you choose to comply with this AD using paragraph (e)(2) of this AD, you must use Cessna Aircraft Company Service Bulletin SEB01–1, dated January 22, 2001; and, as applicable, either Cessna Aircraft Company Service Kit SK152–25A, Revision A, dated February 9, 2001; or Cessna Aircraft Company Service Kit SK152–24A, Revision A, dated March 9, 2001, to do the actions required by this AD, unless the AD specifies otherwise.

ACTION: Final rule; request for comments. SUMMARY: The FAA is revising an existing airworthiness directive (AD), which applies to certain 328 Support Services GmbH Dornier Model 328–300 airplanes. That AD currently requires modifying the electrical wiring of the fuel pumps; installing insulation at the flow control and shut-off valves, and other components of the environmental control system; installing markings at fuel wiring harnesses; replacing the wiring harness of the auxiliary fuel system with a new wiring harness; and installing insulated couplings in the fuel system; as applicable. That AD also currently requires revising the Airworthiness Limitations section of the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness to incorporate new inspections of the fuel tank system. This AD clarifies the intended effect of the AD on spare and on-airplane fuel tank system components. This AD results from fuel system reviews conducted by the manufacturer. We are issuing this AD to reduce the potential of ignition sources inside fuel tanks, which, in combination with flammable fuel PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 57411 vapors, could result in fuel tank explosions and consequent loss of the airplane. DATES: This AD is effective November 23, 2009.

Airworthiness Directives; Cessna Aircraft Company 150 and 152 
Series Airplanes

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

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) to revise 
AD 2009-10-09, which applies to Cessna Aircraft Company (Cessna) 150 
and 152 series airplanes. AD 2009-10-09 requires either installing a 
placard prohibiting spins and other acrobatic maneuvers in the airplane 
or replacing the rudder stop, the rudder stop bumper, and the 
attachment hardware with a new rudder stop modification kit and 
replacing the safety wire with jamnuts. Since we issued AD 2009-10-09, 
we became aware of a need to clarify certain model and serial number 
designations, remove the duplicate requirement of replacing the safety 
wire with jamnuts, and clarify the conditional acceptability of using 
modification kit part number (P/N) SK152-25 as a terminating action to 
this AD. Consequently, this AD retains the actions currently required 
in AD 2009-10-09, corrects model designation for certain serial 
numbers, removes the duplicate requirement of replacing safety wire 
with jamnuts, and clarifies the conditional acceptability of using 
modification kit P/N SK152-25 as a terminating action to this AD. We 
are issuing this AD to prevent the rudder from traveling past the 
normal travel limit. Operation in this non-certificated control 
position is unacceptable and could cause undesirable consequences, such 
as contact between the rudder and the elevator.

DATES: This AD becomes effective on December 11, 2009.
    As of June 17, 2009 (74 FR 22429, May 13, 2009), the Director of 
the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of Cessna 
Aircraft Company Service Bulletin SEB01-1, dated January 22, 2001; 
Cessna Aircraft Company Service Kit SK152-25A, Revision A, dated 
February 9, 2001; and Cessna Aircraft Company Service Kit SK152-24A, 
Revision A, dated March 9, 2001, listed in this AD.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion

    On August 7, 2009, 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 150 and 152 series airplanes. This 
proposal was published in the Federal Register as a notice of proposed 
rulemaking (NPRM) on August 14, 2009 (74 FR 41096). The NPRM proposed 
to revise AD 2009-10-09 with a new AD that would retain the actions 
currently required in AD 2009-10-09, correct model designation for 
certain serial numbers, remove the duplicate requirement to replace the 
safety wire with jamnuts, and clarify the conditional acceptability of 
using the P/N SK152-25 kit as a terminating action to the proposed AD.

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.

[[Page 57409]]

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this AD affects 17,090 airplanes in the U.S. 
registry.
    We estimate the following costs to do the insertion of the 
operational limitation:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                                Total cost  per   Total cost on
                  Labor cost                              Parts cost                airplane      U.S. operators
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1 work-hour x $80 per hour = $80.............  Not applicable.................             $80       $1,367,200
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We estimate the following costs to do the modification:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                                Total cost  per   Total cost on
                          Labor cost                              Parts cost        airplane      U.S. operators
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4 work-hours x $80 per hour = $320...........................             $90             $410       $7,006,900
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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-2007-27747; Directorate Identifier 2007-CE-030-AD'' in your 
request.

    Note: This AD revision clarifies the applicability of AD 2009-
10-09, eliminates a duplicate requirement for replacement of safety 
wire with jamnuts, and clarifies the intent of the conditional 
acceptability of using modification kit P/N SK152-25 as a 
terminating requirement to the AD. No further action is required for 
those already in compliance with AD 2009-10-09.

Unsafe Condition

    (d) Aircraft in full conformity with type design can exceed the 
travel limits set by the rudder stops. We are issuing this AD to 
prevent the rudder from traveling past the normal travel limit. 
Operation in this non-certificated control position is unacceptable 
and could cause undesirable consequences, such as contact between 
the rudder and the elevator.

Compliance

    (e) To address this problem, you must do either the actions in 
option 1 or option 2 of this AD, unless already done:

    (ii) For airplanes with a sheet
     metal bulkhead, replace the
     rudder stops, rudder stop
     bumpers, and attachment
     hardware with the new rudder
     stop modification kit P/N SK152-
     24A, which includes replacing
     the safety wire with jamnuts.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (f) Kit P/Ns SK152-24 and SK152-25, which are listed in SEB01-1, 
were superseded by kit P/Ns SK152-24A and SK152-25A. Cessna has not 
revised the service bulletin to reflect the new P/Ns. The kits P/Ns 
SK152-24 and SK152-25 will automatically be filled with P/Ns SK152-
24A and SK152-25A, respectively.
    (1) The P/N SK152-24 kit does not address the unsafe condition 
because the nutplate in the kit can not be used due to rivet spacing 
on the aft bulkhead. In addition, a note was added to kit P/N SK152-
24A stating ``some airplanes in this serial range may have a forged 
bulkhead installed after leaving the factory. Service Kit SK152-25A 
or later revision must be used to modify these airplanes.'' 
Therefore, kit P/N SK152-24 is not allowed for installation for this 
AD.

[[Page 57411]]

    (2) The P/N SK152-25 kit did not address the unsafe condition 
because a washer that was too small, P/N NAS1149FN832P, was included 
in the kit. This error was corrected in the P/N SK152-25A kit. If a 
P/N SK152-25 kit is installed using the correct washer P/N 
NAS1149F0332P (and this information is recorded in the maintenance 
log), credit will be given for installing P/N SK152-25A kit because 
this was the only difference between the kits.
    (3) If you previously installed a kit P/N SK152-24 or a kit P/N 
SK152-25 with washer P/N NAS1149FN832P, and you choose the Option 2 
kit installation to comply with this AD, then kit P/N SK152-24A or 
either kit P/N SK152-25 with washer P/N NAS1149F0332P or kit P/N 
SK152-25A, as applicable, must be installed.
    (4) If a P/N SK152-25 kit was installed prior to this AD and the 
washer P/N used in the installation is unknown (not recorded in the 
maintenance log), and you wish to use Option 2 to comply with this 
AD, the installed washer must be replaced with a P/N NAS1149F0332P 
washer, and this work must be recorded in the maintenance log.
