Background On August 17, 2009, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) published Notice No. 09–09, Certification of Turbojets (74 FR 41522). Comments to that document were to be received on or before November 16, 2009. By letter dated October 29, 2009, Cessna Aircraft Company requested that the FAA extend the comment period for Notice No. 09–09 an additional 30 days. In their request, Cessna explains that the ‘‘far reaching implications of the proposal create the need for more time to generate a reasonable and proper response.’’ The FAA concurs with the petitioner’s request for an extension of the comment period on Notice No. 09– 09. This will also allow other commenters who may not have anticipated an extension of the comment period additional time to submit their comments. Absent unusual circumstances, the FAA does not anticipate any further extension of the comment period for this rulemaking. pwalker on DSK8KYBLC1PROD with PROPOSALS Extension of Comment Period In accordance with § 11.47(c) of Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations, the FAA has reviewed the petition made by Cessna Aircraft Company for extension of the comment period to Notice No. 09–09. The petitioner has shown a substantive interest in the proposed rule and good cause for the extension. The FAA has determined that extension of the comment period is consistent with the public interest and that good cause exists for taking this action. Accordingly, the comment period for Notice No. 09–09 is extended until December 16, 2009. Issued in Washington, DC, on November 10, 2009. Pamela Hamilton-Powell, Director, Office of Rulemaking.

Various Model MU–2B Airplanes AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of Transportation (DOT). ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). SUMMARY: We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2006–17– 01, AD 2006–15–07, AD 2000–02–25, and AD 97–25–02, which apply to certain Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) various Model MU–2B airplanes. An FAA-led MU–2B safety evaluation resulted in the standardization of the MU–2B specific training and the FAA-accepted pilot operating checklists through a special federal aviation regulation (SFAR). MHI revised the airplane flight manuals (AFMs) to align them with the information in that training and the checklists. In addition, incorporating all AFM revisions up to and including this latest AFM revision will incorporate all AFM compliance actions required by the four above-mentioned ADs. This proposed AD would retain from AD 2006–17–01 the inspection of the engine torque indication system and possible recalibration of the torque pressure transducers and would require incorporating all revisions up to and including the latest revisions of the AFM. We are proposing this AD to correct inconsistencies in critical operating procedures between the MU– 2B specific training, the FAA-accepted pilot operating checklists, and the AFMs. This condition, if not corrected, could result in operators using FAAaccepted pilot operating checklists that differ from the AFM in certain critical operating procedures, which could result in failure to properly operate the airplane. This failure could lead to loss of control. DATES: We must receive comments on this proposed AD by December 31, 2009.

Send your comments to an address listed under the ADDRESSES section. Include the docket number, ‘‘FAA–2009–1076; Directorate Identifier 2009–CE–019–AD’’ at the beginning of your comments.

We will post all comments we receive, without change, to http:// www.regulations.gov, including any personal information you provide. We will also post a report summarizing each substantive verbal contact we receive concerning this proposed AD. Discussion This proposed AD results from inconsistencies in critical operating procedures between the MU–2B specific training, the FAA-accepted pilot operating checklists, and the AFMs. In 2005, the FAA, Aircraft Certification and Flight Standards Service, conducted an MU–2B safety evaluation. The FAA found that MU–2B specific training was not required for all operators and, when provided, was not standardized. The safety evaluation also revealed that many FAA-accepted pilot operating checklists used by operators and E:\FR\FM\16NOP1.SGM 16NOP1

Background

    On August 17, 2009, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) 
published Notice No. 09-09, Certification of Turbojets (74 FR 41522). 
Comments to that document were to be received on or before November 16, 
2009.
    By letter dated October 29, 2009, Cessna Aircraft Company requested 
that the FAA extend the comment period for Notice No. 09-09 an 
additional 30 days. In their request, Cessna explains that the ``far 
reaching implications of the proposal create the need for more time to 
generate a reasonable and proper response.''
    The FAA concurs with the petitioner's request for an extension of 
the comment period on Notice No. 09-09. This will also allow other 
commenters who may not have anticipated an extension of the comment 
period additional time to submit their comments. Absent unusual 
circumstances, the FAA does not anticipate any further extension of the 
comment period for this rulemaking.

Extension of Comment Period

    In accordance with Sec.  11.47(c) of Title 14, Code of Federal 
Regulations, the FAA has reviewed the petition made by Cessna Aircraft 
Company for extension of the comment period to Notice No. 09-09. The 
petitioner has shown a substantive interest in the proposed rule and 
good cause for the extension. The FAA has determined that extension of 
the comment period is consistent with the public interest and that good 
cause exists for taking this action.
    Accordingly, the comment period for Notice No. 09-09 is extended 
until December 16, 2009.

    Issued in Washington, DC, on November 10, 2009.
