ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as: SUMMARY: Two cases of a crack on a ‘‘dry’’ ADG [air driven generator] (Hamilton Sundstrand part number in the 761339 series), in the aft area of the strut and generator housing assembly, have been reported on CL–600–2B19 aircraft. The same part is also installed on CL–600– 2C10, –2D15 and –2D24 aircraft. Investigation determined that the crack was in an area of the strut where the wall thickness of the casting was below specification, due to a manufacturing anomaly in a specific batch of ADGs. Structural failure and departure of the ADG during deployment could possibly result in damage to the aircraft structure. If deployment was activated by a dual engine shutdown, ADG structural failure would also result in loss of hydraulics for the flight controls. * E:\FR\FM\01OCR1.SGM * * 01OCR1 * * Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 190 / Friday, October 1, 2010 / Rules and Regulations We are issuing this AD to require actions to correct the unsafe condition on these products. DATES: This AD becomes effective November 5, 2010. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in this AD as of November 5, 2010. ADDRESSES: You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at http:// www.regulations.gov or in person at the U.S. Department of Transportation, Docket Operations, M–30, West Building Ground Floor, Room W12–140, 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., Washington, DC.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with RULES Discussion We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 to include an AD that would apply to the specified products. That NPRM was published in the Federal Register on June 18, 2010 (75 FR 34657). That NPRM proposed to correct an unsafe condition for the specified products. The MCAI states: Two cases of a crack on a ‘‘dry’’ ADG [air driven generator] (Hamilton Sundstrand part number in the 761339 series), in the aft area of the strut and generator housing assembly, have been reported on CL–600–2B19 aircraft. The same part is also installed on CL–600– 2C10, –2D15 and –2D24 aircraft. Investigation determined that the crack was in an area of the strut where the wall thickness of the casting was below specification, due to a manufacturing anomaly in a specific batch of ADGs. Structural failure and departure of the ADG during deployment could possibly result in damage to the aircraft structure. If deployment was activated by a dual engine shutdown, ADG structural failure would also result in loss of hydraulics for the flight controls. This [Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA)] directive gives instructions to check the part number of the installed ADG and, for ADGs with a part number in the 761339 series, the serial numbers of the ADG and strut and generator housing assembly are also to be checked. If these serial numbers are within specified ranges * * *, a one-time fluorescent penetrant inspection of the ADG strut is required [and replacement of the ADG if necessary]. Note: For ADGs with serial numbers in the * * * specified ranges, subsequent fluorescent penetrant inspections are required after each scheduled in-flight or on- VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:31 Sep 30, 2010 Jkt 223001 ground functional check of the ADG and also after each unscheduled in-flight ADG deployment. These inspection requirements are not mandated in this [TCCA] directive but are specified in the approved maintenance program. 60605 You may obtain further information by examining the MCAI in the AD docket. 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. Comments Regulatory Findings We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We considered the comment received. Air Line Pilots Association, International supports the NPRM. We 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 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 regulatory evaluation of the estimated costs to comply with this AD and placed it in the AD docket. Conclusion We reviewed the available data, including the comment received, and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting the AD as proposed. Differences Between This AD and the MCAI or Service Information We have reviewed the MCAI and related service information and, in general, agree with their substance. But we might have found it necessary to use different words from those in the MCAI to ensure the AD is clear for U.S. operators and is enforceable. In making these changes, we do not intend to differ substantively from the information provided in the MCAI and related service information. We might also have required different actions in this AD from those in the MCAI in order to follow our FAA policies. Any such differences are highlighted in a NOTE within the AD. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this AD will affect 1,073 products of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it will take about 1 workhour per product to comply with the basic requirements of this AD. The average labor rate is $85 per work-hour. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this AD to the U.S. operators to be $91,205, or $85 per product. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00033 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Examining the AD Docket You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at http:// www.regulations.gov; or in person at the Docket Operations office between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. The AD docket contains the NPRM, the regulatory evaluation, any comments received, and other information. The street address for the Docket Operations office (telephone (800) 647–5527) is in the ADDRESSES section. Comments will be available in the AD docket shortly after receipt.

The FAA amends § 39.13 by adding the following new AD: ■ 2010–20–19 Bombardier, Inc.: Amendment 39–16454. Docket No. FAA–2010–0550; Directorate Identifier 2009–NM–124–AD. Effective Date (a) This airworthiness directive (AD) becomes effective November 5, 2010. Affected ADs (b) None. Applicability (c) This AD applies to Bombardier, Inc. Model CL–600–2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes, serial numbers 7305 through 8051 inclusive; Model CL–600–2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701, & 702) airplanes, serial numbers 10003 through 10260 inclusive; and Model CL–600–2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705) airplanes and Model CL–600–2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900) airplanes, serial numbers 15001 through 15106 inclusive; certificated in any category. Subject (d) Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 24: Electrical Power. Reason (e) The mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) states: Two cases of a crack on a ‘‘dry’’ ADG [air driven generator] (Hamilton Sundstrand part number in the 761339 series), in the aft area of the strut and generator housing assembly, have been reported on CL–600–2B19 aircraft. The same part is also installed on CL–600– 2C10, –2D15 and–2D24 aircraft. Investigation determined that the crack was in an area of the strut where the wall thickness of the casting was below specification, due to a manufacturing anomaly in a specific batch of ADGs. Structural failure and departure of the ADG during deployment could possibly result in damage to the aircraft structure. If deployment was activated by a dual engine shutdown, ADG structural failure would also result in loss of hydraulics for the flight controls. This [Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA)] directive gives instructions to check the part number of the installed ADG and, for ADGs with a part number in the 761339 series, the serial numbers of the ADG and strut and generator housing assembly are also to be checked. If these serial numbers are within specified ranges * * *, a one-time fluorescent penetrant inspection of the ADG strut is required [and replacement of the ADG if necessary]. Note: For ADGs with serial numbers in the * * * specified ranges, subsequent fluorescent penetrant inspections are required after each scheduled in-flight or onground functional check of the ADG and also after each unscheduled in-flight ADG deployment. These inspection requirements are not mandated in this [TCCA] directive but are specified in the approved maintenance program. Compliance (f) You are responsible for having the actions required by this AD performed within the compliance times specified, unless the actions have already been done. Actions (g) Do the following actions. (1) Within 1,000 flight hours after the effective date of this AD or before the first scheduled ADG functional test after the effective date of this AD, whichever occurs first, inspect to determine the part number of the installed ADG. A review of the airplane maintenance records is acceptable in lieu of this inspection if the part number can be conclusively determined from that review. (i) If a Hamilton Sundstrand ADG having part number 1711405 is installed, the strut thickness is within specification and no further action is required by this AD. (ii) If a Hamilton Sundstrand ADG having a part number in the 761339 series is installed, within 1,000 flight hours after the effective date of this AD or before the first scheduled ADG functional test after the effective date of this AD, whichever occurs first, inspect to determine the serial number of the ADG. A review of the airplane maintenance records is acceptable in lieu of this inspection if the serial number can be conclusively determined from that review. (A) If the serial number of the ADG is 2000 or higher, the strut wall thickness is within specification and no further action is required by this AD. (B) If the serial number of the ADG is in the range 0101 through 1999 and symbol ‘‘24–3’’ is marked in the serial number block of the identification plate, the strut wall thickness is within specification, no further action is required by this AD. (C) If the serial number of the ADG is in the range 0101 through 1999 and the symbol ‘‘24–3’’ is not marked in the serial block of the identification plate, within 1,000 flight hours after the effective date of this AD or before the first scheduled ADG functional test after the effective date of this AD, whichever occurs first, inspect to determine the serial number of the strut and generator housing assembly. A review of the airplane maintenance records is acceptable in lieu of this inspection if the serial number can be conclusively determined from that review. (1) If the serial number of the strut and generator housing assembly is in the range 0001 through 2503, do a fluorescent penetrant inspection in accordance with paragraph (g)(2) of this AD at the times specified in paragraph (g)(2) of this AD.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 to include an AD that would apply to the specified products. That NPRM was published in the Federal Register on May 10, 2010 (75 FR 25791), and proposed to supersede AD 2009– 22–12, Amendment 39–16065 (74 FR 55767, October 29, 2009). That NPRM proposed to correct an unsafe condition for the specified products. When we issued AD 2009–22–12, we stated that we did not include certain actions (the inspection to determine if certain transducers are installed and replaced if necessary in paragraph (h) of this AD) because the planned compliance time was not enough to give notice as AD 2009–22–12 was issued as an immediately adopted rule. We now have determined that further rulemaking is indeed necessary, and this AD follows from that determination. You may obtain further information by examining the MCAI in the AD docket. Since we issued the NPRM we have reviewed Bombardier Service Bulletin 670BA–27–053, Revision B, dated January 12, 2010. We referred to Bombardier Service Bulletin 670BA–27– PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 053, Revision A, dated July 7, 2009, as the appropriate source of service information for doing certain actions specified in the NPRM. Bombardier Service Bulletin 670BA–27–053, Revision B, dated January 12, 2010, contains minor editorial changes that do not have an effect on the technical content in this AD. We have revised paragraphs (h) and (i) of this AD to refer to Bombardier Service Bulletin 670BA– 27–053, Revision B, dated January 12, 2010. We have also added Bombardier Service Bulletin 670BA–27–053, Revision A, dated July 7, 2009, to paragraph (j) of this AD for credit for inspections and replacements accomplished before the effective date of this AD. Comments We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We considered the comments received. One commenter, Air Line Pilots Association, International, supports the NPRM. Request to Reference the Correct Service Bulletin Comair, Inc. states that the intended reference for paragraph (j) of the NPRM should be Bombardier Service Bulletin 670BA–27–053, dated May 14, 2009, for inspections and replacements accomplished before the effective date of this AD. We agree with Comair, Inc. that Bombardier Service Bulletin 670BA–27– 053, dated May 14, 2009, is considered acceptable for compliance with the corresponding actions specified in this AD. We have added this service bulletin to paragraph (j) of this AD. Conclusion We reviewed the available data, including the comments received, and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting the AD with the change described previously. We determined that this change will not increase the economic burden on any operator or increase the scope of the AD. Differences Between This AD and the MCAI or Service Information We have reviewed the MCAI and related service information and, in general, agree with their substance. But we might have found it necessary to use different words from those in the MCAI to ensure the AD is clear for U.S. operators and is enforceable. In making these changes, we do not intend to differ substantively from the information provided in the MCAI and related service information. We might also have required different actions in this AD from those in the E:\FR\FM\01OCR1.SGM 01OCR1

SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the 
products listed above. This AD results from mandatory continuing 
airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of 
another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an 
aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as:

    Two cases of a crack on a ``dry'' ADG [air driven generator] 
(Hamilton Sundstrand part number in the 761339 series), in the aft 
area of the strut and generator housing assembly, have been reported 
on CL-600-2B19 aircraft. The same part is also installed on CL-600-
2C10, -2D15 and -2D24 aircraft. Investigation determined that the 
crack was in an area of the strut where the wall thickness of the 
casting was below specification, due to a manufacturing anomaly in a 
specific batch of ADGs. Structural failure and departure of the ADG 
during deployment could possibly result in damage to the aircraft 
structure. If deployment was activated by a dual engine shutdown, 
ADG structural failure would also result in loss of hydraulics for 
the flight controls.
* * * * *

We are issuing this AD to require actions to correct the unsafe 
condition on these products.

DATES: This AD becomes effective November 5, 2010.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of certain publications listed in this AD as of November 5, 
2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion

    We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR 
part 39 to include an AD that would apply to the specified products. 
That NPRM was published in the Federal Register on June 18, 2010 (75 FR 
34657). That NPRM proposed to correct an unsafe condition for the 
specified products. The MCAI states:

    Two cases of a crack on a ``dry'' ADG [air driven generator] 
(Hamilton Sundstrand part number in the 761339 series), in the aft 
area of the strut and generator housing assembly, have been reported 
on CL-600-2B19 aircraft. The same part is also installed on CL-600-
2C10, -2D15 and -2D24 aircraft. Investigation determined that the 
crack was in an area of the strut where the wall thickness of the 
casting was below specification, due to a manufacturing anomaly in a 
specific batch of ADGs. Structural failure and departure of the ADG 
during deployment could possibly result in damage to the aircraft 
structure. If deployment was activated by a dual engine shutdown, 
ADG structural failure would also result in loss of hydraulics for 
the flight controls.
    This [Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA)] directive gives 
instructions to check the part number of the installed ADG and, for 
ADGs with a part number in the 761339 series, the serial numbers of 
the ADG and strut and generator housing assembly are also to be 
checked. If these serial numbers are within specified ranges * * *, 
a one-time fluorescent penetrant inspection of the ADG strut is 
required [and replacement of the ADG if necessary].
    Note: For ADGs with serial numbers in the * * * specified 
ranges, subsequent fluorescent penetrant inspections are required 
after each scheduled in-flight or on-ground functional check of the 
ADG and also after each unscheduled in-flight ADG deployment. These 
inspection requirements are not mandated in this [TCCA] directive 
but are specified in the approved maintenance program.

You may obtain further information by examining the MCAI in the AD 
docket.

Comments

    We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing 
this AD. We considered the comment received. Air Line Pilots 
Association, International supports the NPRM.

Conclusion

    We reviewed the available data, including the comment received, and 
determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting the 
AD as proposed.

Differences Between This AD and the MCAI or Service Information

    We have reviewed the MCAI and related service information and, in 
general, agree with their substance. But we might have found it 
necessary to use different words from those in the MCAI to ensure the 
AD is clear for U.S. operators and is enforceable. In making these 
changes, we do not intend to differ substantively from the information 
provided in the MCAI and related service information.
    We might also have required different actions in this AD from those 
in the MCAI in order to follow our FAA policies. Any such differences 
are highlighted in a NOTE within the AD.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this AD will affect 1,073 products of U.S. 
registry. We also estimate that it will take about 1 work-hour per 
product to comply with the basic requirements of this AD. The average 
labor rate is $85 per work-hour. Based on these figures, we estimate 
the cost of this AD to the U.S. operators to be $91,205, or $85 per 
product.

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 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 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 regulatory evaluation of the estimated costs to 
comply with this AD and placed it in the AD docket.

Examining the AD Docket

    You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov; or in person at the Docket Operations office 
between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal 
holidays. The AD docket contains the NPRM, the regulatory evaluation, 
any comments received, and other information. The street address for 
the Docket Operations office (telephone (800) 647-5527) is in the 
ADDRESSES section. Comments will be available in the AD docket shortly 
after receipt.

2010-0550; Directorate Identifier 2009-NM-124-AD.

Effective Date

    (a) This airworthiness directive (AD) becomes effective November 
5, 2010.

Affected ADs

    (b) None.

Applicability

    (c) This AD applies to Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-2B19 
(Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes, serial numbers 7305 
through 8051 inclusive; Model CL-600-2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700,

CL-600-2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900) airplanes, serial numbers 
15001 through 15106 inclusive; certificated in any category.

Subject

    (d) Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 24: 
Electrical Power.

Reason

    (e) The mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) 
states:

    Two cases of a crack on a ``dry'' ADG [air driven generator] 
(Hamilton Sundstrand part number in the 761339 series), in the aft 
area of the strut and generator housing assembly, have been reported 
on CL-600-2B19 aircraft. The same part is also installed on CL-600-
2C10, -2D15 and-2D24 aircraft. Investigation determined that the 
crack was in an area of the strut where the wall thickness of the 
casting was below specification, due to a manufacturing anomaly in a 
specific batch of ADGs. Structural failure and departure of the ADG 
during deployment could possibly result in damage to the aircraft 
structure. If deployment was activated by a dual engine shutdown, 
ADG structural failure would also result in loss of hydraulics for 
the flight controls.
    This [Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA)] directive gives 
instructions to check the part number of the installed ADG and, for 
ADGs with a part number in the 761339 series, the serial numbers of 
the ADG and strut and generator housing assembly are also to be 
checked. If these serial numbers are within specified ranges * * *, 
a one-time fluorescent penetrant inspection of the ADG strut is 
required [and replacement of the ADG if necessary].
    Note: For ADGs with serial numbers in the * * * specified 
ranges, subsequent fluorescent penetrant inspections are required 
after each scheduled in-flight or on-ground functional check of the 
ADG and also after each unscheduled in-flight ADG deployment. These 
inspection requirements are not mandated in this [TCCA] directive 
but are specified in the approved maintenance program.

Compliance

    (f) You are responsible for having the actions required by this 
AD performed within the compliance times specified, unless the 
actions have already been done.

Actions

    (g) Do the following actions.
    (1) Within 1,000 flight hours after the effective date of this 
AD or before the first scheduled ADG functional test after the 
effective date of this AD, whichever occurs first, inspect to 
determine the part number of the installed ADG. A review of the 
airplane maintenance records is acceptable in lieu of this 
inspection if the part number can be conclusively determined from 
that review.
    (i) If a Hamilton Sundstrand ADG having part number 1711405 is 
installed, the strut thickness is within specification and no 
further action is required by this AD.
    (ii) If a Hamilton Sundstrand ADG having a part number in the 
761339 series is installed, within 1,000 flight hours after the 
effective date of this AD or before the first scheduled ADG 
functional test after the effective date of this AD, whichever 
occurs first, inspect to determine the serial number of the ADG. A 
review of the airplane maintenance records is acceptable in lieu of 
this inspection if the serial number can be conclusively determined 
from that review.
    (A) If the serial number of the ADG is 2000 or higher, the strut 
wall thickness is within specification and no further action is 
required by this AD.
    (B) If the serial number of the ADG is in the range 0101 through 
1999 and symbol ``24-3'' is marked in the serial number block of the 
identification plate, the strut wall thickness is within 
specification, no further action is required by this AD.
    (C) If the serial number of the ADG is in the range 0101 through 
1999 and the symbol ``24-3'' is not marked in the serial block of 
the identification plate, within 1,000 flight hours after the 
effective date of this AD or before the first scheduled ADG 
functional test after the effective date of this AD, whichever 
occurs first, inspect to determine the serial number of the strut 
and generator housing assembly. A review of the airplane maintenance 
records is acceptable in lieu of this inspection if the serial 
number can be conclusively determined from that review.
    (1) If the serial number of the strut and generator housing 
assembly is in the range 0001 through 2503, do a fluorescent 
penetrant inspection in accordance with paragraph (g)(2) of this AD 
at the times specified in paragraph (g)(2) of this AD.
    (2) If the serial number of the strut and generator housing 
assembly is 2504 or higher, the strut wall thickness is within 
specification and no further action is required by this AD.
    (3) If the serial number of the strut and generator housing 
assembly is not inspected or it is not possible to determine the 
serial number, do a fluorescent penetrant inspection in accordance 
with paragraph (g)(2) of this AD at the times specified in paragraph 
(g)(2) of this AD.
    (2) For ADGs having a strut and generator assembly identified in 
paragraph (g)(1)(ii)(C)(1) or (g)(1)(ii)(C)(3) of this AD: Within 
1,000 flight hours after the effective date of this AD or before the 
first scheduled ADG functional test after the effective date of this 
AD, whichever occurs first, do a fluorescent penetrant inspection 
for cracking of the ADG strut, and if any crack is found, before 
further flight, replace the ADG with a serviceable ADG, in 
accordance with the Accomplishment Instructions of Bombardier Alert 
Service Bulletin A601R-24-120, Revision C, dated April 20, 2009 (for 
Model CL-600-2B19 airplanes); or Bombardier Alert Service Bulletin 
A670BA-24-020, Revision C, dated April 20, 2009 (for Model CL-600-
2C10, CL-600-2D15, and CL-600-2D24 airplanes).
    (3) Fluorescent penetrant inspections accomplished before the 
effective date of this AD in accordance with any applicable service 
bulletin specified in Table 1 of this AD are considered acceptable 
for compliance with the corresponding fluorescent penetrant 
inspection specified in this AD.
