ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to all of the McDonnell Douglas Corporation airplanes identified above. The existing AD currently requires revising the SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 maintenance program to incorporate new airworthiness limitations for fuel tank systems to satisfy Special Federal Aviation Regulation No. 88 requirements. This new AD adds requirements to revise the maintenance program to incorporate specific Critical Design Configuration Control Limitations (CDCCL) information and install fuel tank float switch in-line fuses. This new AD also adds two Airworthiness Limitations inspections (ALIs). This AD results from a design review of the fuel tank systems. We are issuing this AD to prevent the potential for ignition sources inside fuel tanks caused by latent failures, alterations, repairs, or maintenance actions, which, in combination with flammable fuel vapors, could result in a fuel tank explosion and consequent loss of the airplane. This AD becomes effective November 12, 2010. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in the AD as of November 12, 2010. On May 27, 2008 (73 FR 21523, April 22, 2008), the Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of a certain other publication listed in the AD.

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 2008–09–04, Amendment 39–15484 (73 FR 21523, April 22, 2008). The existing AD applies to all Model DC–8–31, DC–8–32, DC–8– 33, DC–8–41, DC–8–42, and DC–8–43 airplanes; Model DC–8–50 series airplanes; Model DC–8F–54 and DC– 8F–55 airplanes; Model DC–8–60 series airplanes; Model DC–8–60F series airplanes; Model DC–8–70 series airplanes; and Model DC–8–70F series airplanes. That NPRM was published in the Federal Register on June 25, 2010 (75 FR 36298). That NPRM proposed to continue to require revising the Relevant Service Information We reviewed Boeing DC–8 Special Compliance Item Report, MDC– 02K9030, Revision D, dated June 9, 2010. This service information does not add any additional work. We have revised paragraphs (j), (m), and (n) of this AD to refer to this report. Comments We provided the public the opportunity to participate in the development of this AD. No comments have been received on the NPRM or on the determination of the cost to the public. Change to Paragraph Reference We revised paragraph (l) of this AD to correct a typographical error that appeared in the NPRM. In paragraph (l) of the NPRM, we inadvertently referred to ‘‘paragraph (k)’’ instead of ‘‘paragraph (j)’’ of the AD. Paragraph (l) of this final rule correctly references paragraph (j) of this AD. Explanation of Additional Change to NPRM We also clarified the airplanes affected by paragraph (k) of this AD by referring to the airplanes identified in Boeing Service Bulletin DC8–28–090, dated October 9, 2009. Airplanes not listed in the effectivity of Boeing Service Bulletin DC8–28–090, dated October 9, 2009, are not required to do the installation required by paragraph (k) of this AD. Conclusion We have carefully reviewed the available data and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting the AD with the changes mentioned previously. Costs of Compliance There are about 125 airplanes of the affected design in the worldwide fleet. The following table provides the estimated costs for U.S. operators to comply with this AD.

Up to 35 hours ..... 85 0 Up to $2,975 ......... 125 Up to $371,875. 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. VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:58 Oct 06, 2010 Jkt 223001 Parts Cost per airplane Number of U.S.-registered airplanes 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 under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. We prepared a regulatory evaluation of the estimated costs to comply with PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Fleet cost this AD and placed it in the AD docket. See the ADDRESSES section for a location to examine the regulatory evaluation. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by reference, Safety. Adoption of the Amendment Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the FAA amends 14 CFR part 39 as follows: ■ PART 39—AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES 1.

The U.S. Army notified the FAA that the Kwajalein TACAN was decommissioned. This action corrects the legal descriptions for the Class E airspace areas in the vicinity of the Marshall Islands. DATES: Effective date 0901 UTC, January 13, 2011. The Director of the Federal Register approves this incorporation by reference action under 1 CFR part 51, subject to the annual revision of FAA Order 7400.9 and publication of conforming amendments. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ken McElroy, Airspace and Rules Group, Office of System Operations Airspace and AIM, Federal Aviation Administration, 800 Independence Avenue, SW., Washington, DC 20591; telephone: (202) 267–8783. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by removing the reference to the Kwajalein TACAN, as it has been decommissioned, from the legal description of Class E airspace designated as an extension to a Class D surface area, and Class E airspace areas extending upward from 700 feet or more above the surface of the earth at Kwajalein Island, Bucholz AAF, Marshall Islands, RMI. Therefore, notice and public procedures under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) are unnecessary. Class E airspace designations are published in paragraphs 6004 and 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9U signed August 18, 2010, and effective September 15, 2010, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designations listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 B ................................ C ................................ D ................................ Original ...................... Date July 23, 2009. January 5, 2010. June 9, 2010. October 9, 2009. current. Therefore, this regulation: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under Department of Transportation (DOT) Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. The FAA’s authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is found in Title 49 of the United States Code. 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. This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in subtitle VII, part A, subpart I, section 40103. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of the airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it amends Class E airspace at Kwajalein Island, Marshall Island, RMI. Environmental Review The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance with 311a., FAA Order 1050.1E, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures.’’ This airspace action is not expected to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment.

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

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The FAA is superseding an existing airworthiness directive 
(AD) that applies to all of the McDonnell Douglas Corporation airplanes 
identified above. The existing AD currently requires revising the 
maintenance program to incorporate new airworthiness limitations for 
fuel tank systems to satisfy Special Federal Aviation Regulation No. 88 
requirements. This new AD adds requirements to revise the maintenance 
program to incorporate specific Critical Design Configuration Control 
Limitations (CDCCL) information and install fuel tank float switch in-
line fuses. This new AD also adds two Airworthiness Limitations 
inspections (ALIs). This AD results from a design review of the fuel 
tank systems. We are issuing this AD to prevent the potential for 
ignition sources inside fuel tanks caused by latent failures, 
alterations, repairs, or maintenance actions, which, in combination 
with flammable fuel vapors, could result in a fuel tank explosion and 
consequent loss of the airplane.

DATES: This AD becomes effective November 12, 2010.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of certain publications listed in the AD as of November 12, 
2010.
    On May 27, 2008 (73 FR 21523, April 22, 2008), the Director of the 
Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of a certain 
other publication listed in the AD.

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 2008-09-04, Amendment 
39-15484 (73 FR 21523, April 22, 2008). The existing AD applies to all 
Model DC-8-31, DC-8-32, DC-8-33, DC-8-41, DC-8-42, and DC-8-43 
airplanes; Model DC-8-50 series airplanes; Model DC-8F-54 and DC-8F-55 
airplanes; Model DC-8-60 series airplanes; Model DC-8-60F series 
airplanes; Model DC-8-70 series airplanes; and Model DC-8-70F series 
airplanes. That NPRM was published in the Federal Register on June 25, 
2010 (75 FR 36298). That NPRM proposed to continue to require revising 
the maintenance program. That NPRM also proposed to add requirements to 
revise the maintenance program to incorporate specific Critical Design 
Configuration Control Limitations (CDCCL) information and install fuel 
tank float switch in-line fuses. That NPRM also proposed to add two 
Airworthiness Limitations inspections (ALIs).

Relevant Service Information

    We reviewed Boeing DC-8 Special Compliance Item Report, MDC-
02K9030, Revision D, dated June 9, 2010. This service information does 
not add any additional work. We have revised paragraphs (j), (m), and 
(n) of this AD to refer to this report.

Comments

    We provided the public the opportunity to participate in the 
development of this AD. No comments have been received on the NPRM or 
on the determination of the cost to the public.

Change to Paragraph Reference

    We revised paragraph (l) of this AD to correct a typographical 
error that appeared in the NPRM. In paragraph (l) of the NPRM, we 
inadvertently referred to ``paragraph (k)'' instead of ``paragraph 
(j)'' of the AD. Paragraph (l) of this final rule correctly references 
paragraph (j) of this AD.

Explanation of Additional Change to NPRM

    We also clarified the airplanes affected by paragraph (k) of this 
AD by referring to the airplanes identified in Boeing Service Bulletin 
DC8-28-090, dated October 9, 2009. Airplanes not listed in the 
effectivity of Boeing Service Bulletin DC8-28-090, dated October 9, 
2009, are not required to do the installation required by paragraph (k) 
of this AD.

Conclusion

    We have carefully reviewed the available data and determined that 
air safety and the public interest require adopting the AD with the 
changes mentioned previously.

Costs of Compliance

    There are about 125 airplanes of the affected design in the 
worldwide fleet. The following table provides the estimated costs for 
U.S. operators to comply with this AD.

                                                                     Estimated Costs

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 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.
