ACTION: Final rule; request for comments. 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: ` On two occurrences on Mystere-Falcon 50 aeroplanes in service, it was detected that two pipes of the emergency brake system #2 located near the nose landing gear bearing were swapped. The swapping of these two pipes implies that when the Left Hand (LH) brake pedal is depressed, the Right Hand (RH) brake unit is activated, and conversely, when the RH brake pedal is depressed, the LH brake unit is actuated. This constitutes an unsafe condition, which may go unnoticed as the condition is latent until the emergency brake system #2 is used. This condition, if not PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 corrected, could ultimately lead to a runway excursion of the aeroplane. * * * * * This AD requires actions that are intended to address the unsafe condition described in the MCAI. DATES: This AD becomes effective December 9, 2010. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of a certain publication listed in the AD as of December 9, 2010. We must receive comments on this AD by January 10, 2011. ADDRESSES: You may send comments by any of the following methods: • Federal eRulemaking Portal: Go to http://www.regulations.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the European Community, has issued EASA Emergency Airworthiness Directive 2010–0208–E, dated October 12, 2010 (referred to after this as ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for the specified products. The MCAI states: ` On two occurrences on Mystere-Falcon 50 aeroplanes in service, it was detected that E:\FR\FM\24NOR1.SGM 24NOR1 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 226 / Wednesday, November 24, 2010 / Rules and Regulations two pipes of the emergency brake system #2 located near the nose landing gear bearing were swapped. The swapping of these two pipes implies that when the Left Hand (LH) brake pedal is depressed, the Right Hand (RH) brake unit is activated, and conversely, when the RH brake pedal is depressed, the LH brake unit is actuated. This constitutes an unsafe condition, which may go unnoticed as the condition is latent until the emergency brake system #2 is used. This condition, if not corrected, could ultimately lead to a runway excursion of the aeroplane. For the reasons described above, this [EASA] AD requires an [general visual] inspection of the main landing gear braking system and, in case of findings, proper reinstallation of the emergency brake system #2 pipes. This [EASA] AD also requires painting the affected pipes for clear identification in order to avoid mistakes while reinstalling them after maintenance. You may obtain further information by examining the MCAI in the AD docket. Relevant Service Information DASSAULT AVIATION has issued Service Bulletin F50–515, dated October 12, 2010. The actions described in this service information are intended to correct the unsafe condition identified in the MCAI. FAA’s Determination and Requirements of this AD This product has been approved by the aviation authority of another country, and is approved for operation in the United States. Pursuant to our bilateral agreement with the State of Design Authority, we have been notified of the unsafe condition described in the MCAI and service information referenced above. We are issuing this AD because we evaluated all pertinent information and determined the unsafe condition exists and is likely to exist or develop on other products of the same type design. jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with RULES Differences Between the 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 FAA policies. Any such differences are highlighted in a Note within the AD. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:38 Nov 23, 2010 Jkt 223001 FAA’s Determination of the Effective Date An unsafe condition exists that requires the immediate adoption of this AD. The FAA has found that the risk to the flying public justifies waiving notice and comment prior to adoption of this rule because this unsafe condition could result in a high speed runway excursion when the brakes are applied. Therefore, we determined that notice and opportunity for public comment before issuing this AD are impracticable and that good cause exists for making this amendment effective in fewer than 30 days. Comments Invited This AD is a final rule that involves requirements affecting flight safety, and we did not precede it by notice and opportunity for public comment. We invite you to send any written relevant data, views, or arguments about this AD. Send your comments to an address listed under the ADDRESSES section. Include ‘‘Docket No. FAA–2010–1155; Directorate Identifier 2010–NM–238– AD’’ at the beginning of your comments. We specifically invite comments on the overall regulatory, economic, environmental, and energy aspects of this AD. We will consider all comments received by the closing date and may amend this AD because of those 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 about this AD. 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. PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 71531 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. 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 authority citation for part 39 continues to read as follows: ■ Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701. § 39.13 [Amended]. 2. The FAA amends § 39.13 by adding the following new AD: ■ 2010–24–08 Dassault Aviation: Amendment 39–16527. Docket No. FAA–2010–1155; Directorate Identifier 2010–NM–238–AD. Effective Date (a) This airworthiness directive (AD) becomes effective December 9, 2010. Affected ADs (b) None. Applicability (c) This AD applies to DASSAULT AVIATION Model MYSTERE–FALCON 50 airplanes, certificated in any category, all serial numbers. Subject (d) Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 32: Landing Gear. Reason (e) The mandatory continued airworthiness information (MCAI) states: E:\FR\FM\24NOR1.SGM 24NOR1 71532 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 226 / Wednesday, November 24, 2010 / Rules and Regulations ` On two occurrences on Mystere-Falcon 50 aeroplanes in service, it was detected that two pipes of the emergency brake system #2 located near the nose landing gear bearing were swapped. The swapping of these two pipes implies that when the Left Hand (LH) brake pedal is depressed, the Right Hand (RH) brake unit is activated, and conversely, when the RH brake pedal is depressed, the LH brake unit is actuated. This constitutes an unsafe condition, which may go unnoticed as the condition is latent until the emergency brake system #2 is used. This condition, if not corrected, * * * * * 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) Within 7 days after the effective date of this AD, do a general visual inspection for correct installation (as defined in Dassault Service Bulletin F50–515, dated October 12, 2010) of the emergency brake system number 2, in accordance with the Accomplishment Instructions of Dassault Service Bulletin F50–515, dated October 12, 2010, except that work required by this AD can only be done by persons prescribed in 14 CFR 43.3 and 43.7. (h) If the emergency brake system number 2 is found installed incorrectly during the inspection required by paragraph (g) of this AD: Before further flight, install the emergency brake system number 2 correctly, in accordance with the Accomplishment Instructions of Dassault Service Bulletin F50–515, dated October 12, 2010. jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with RULES FAA AD Differences Note 1: This AD differs from the MCAI and/or service information as follows: (1) European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD 2010–0208–E, dated October 12, 2010, has a compliance time of ‘‘before the next flight after the effective date of this AD.’’ This AD requires that the actions be done within 7 days after the effective date of this AD. (2) EASA AD 2010–0208–E, dated October 12, 2010, allows the flightcrew to inspect the emergency brake system number 2 specified in accordance with Dassault Service Bulletin F50–515, dated October 12, 2010. However, this AD requires the inspection to be performed by certificated maintenance personnel. (3) EASA AD 2010–0208–E, dated October 12, 2010, requires painting the pipes end of the emergency brake system number 2 and related unions within 7 months after the effective date of that AD. This AD does not require painting the pipes end of the emergency brake system number 2 and related unions. We might consider additional rulemaking to require this action in the future.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: This amendment adopts a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Robinson Model R22, R22 Alpha, R22 Beta, and R22 Mariner helicopters, and Model R44 and R44 II helicopters. This AD requires visually inspecting each tail rotor (T/R) control pedal bearing block support (support) for a crack, measuring the thickness of each support, installing support safety tabs on certain supports, and replacing supports of a certain thickness during the next 2,200 hour overhaul. This amendment is prompted by two reports of Model R22 helicopters experiencing broken supports during flight, which resulted in the T/R control pedals becoming jammed. The actions specified by this AD are intended to prevent the supports from breaking, which can bind the T/R control pedals, resulting in a reduction of yaw control and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.

Airworthiness Directives; DASSAULT AVIATION Model MYSTERE-FALCON 
50 Airplanes

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

ACTION: Final rule; request for comments.

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

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:

    On two occurrences on Myst[egrave]re-Falcon 50 aeroplanes in 
service, it was detected that two pipes of the emergency brake 
system 2 located near the nose landing gear bearing were 
swapped.
    The swapping of these two pipes implies that when the Left Hand 
(LH) brake pedal is depressed, the Right Hand (RH) brake unit is 
activated, and conversely, when the RH brake pedal is depressed, the 
LH brake unit is actuated. This constitutes an unsafe condition, 
which may go unnoticed as the condition is latent until the 
emergency brake system 2 is used. This condition, if not 
corrected, could ultimately lead to a runway excursion of the 
aeroplane.
* * * * *

This AD requires actions that are intended to address the unsafe 
condition described in the MCAI.

DATES: This AD becomes effective December 9, 2010.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of a certain publication listed in the AD as of December 9, 
2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion

    The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical 
Agent for the Member States of the European Community, has issued EASA 
Emergency Airworthiness Directive 2010-0208-E, dated October 12, 2010 
(referred to after this as ``the MCAI''), to correct an unsafe 
condition for the specified products. The MCAI states:

    On two occurrences on Myst[egrave]re-Falcon 50 aeroplanes in 
service, it was detected that

[[Page 71531]]

two pipes of the emergency brake system 2 located near the 
nose landing gear bearing were swapped.
    The swapping of these two pipes implies that when the Left Hand 
(LH) brake pedal is depressed, the Right Hand (RH) brake unit is 
activated, and conversely, when the RH brake pedal is depressed, the 
LH brake unit is actuated. This constitutes an unsafe condition, 
which may go unnoticed as the condition is latent until the 
emergency brake system 2 is used. This condition, if not 
corrected, could ultimately lead to a runway excursion of the 
aeroplane.
    For the reasons described above, this [EASA] AD requires an 
[general visual] inspection of the main landing gear braking system 
and, in case of findings, proper re-installation of the emergency 
brake system 2 pipes. This [EASA] AD also requires painting 
the affected pipes for clear identification in order to avoid 
mistakes while reinstalling them after maintenance.

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

Relevant Service Information

    DASSAULT AVIATION has issued Service Bulletin F50-515, dated 
October 12, 2010. The actions described in this service information are 
intended to correct the unsafe condition identified in the MCAI.

FAA's Determination and Requirements of this AD

    This product has been approved by the aviation authority of another 
country, and is approved for operation in the United States. Pursuant 
to our bilateral agreement with the State of Design Authority, we have 
been notified of the unsafe condition described in the MCAI and service 
information referenced above. We are issuing this AD because we 
evaluated all pertinent information and determined the unsafe condition 
exists and is likely to exist or develop on other products of the same 
type design.

Differences Between the 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 FAA policies. Any such differences are 
highlighted in a Note within the AD.

FAA's Determination of the Effective Date

    An unsafe condition exists that requires the immediate adoption of 
this AD. The FAA has found that the risk to the flying public justifies 
waiving notice and comment prior to adoption of this rule because this 
unsafe condition could result in a high speed runway excursion when the 
brakes are applied. Therefore, we determined that notice and 
opportunity for public comment before issuing this AD are impracticable 
and that good cause exists for making this amendment effective in fewer 
than 30 days.

Comments Invited

    This AD is a final rule that involves requirements affecting flight 
safety, and we did not precede it by notice and opportunity for public 
comment. We invite you to send any written relevant data, views, or 
arguments about this AD. Send your comments to an address listed under 
the ADDRESSES section. Include ``Docket No. FAA-2010-1155; Directorate 
Identifier 2010-NM-238-AD'' at the beginning of your comments. We 
specifically invite comments on the overall regulatory, economic, 
environmental, and energy aspects of this AD. We will consider all 
comments received by the closing date and may amend this AD because of 
those 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 about this AD.

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.

Adoption of the Amendment

0
Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, 
the FAA amends 14 CFR part 39 as follows:

PART 39--AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES

0
1. The authority citation for part 39 continues to read as follows:

    Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701.


Sec.  39.13  [Amended].

0
2. The FAA amends Sec.  39.13 by adding the following new AD:

2010-24-08 Dassault Aviation: Amendment 39-16527. Docket No. FAA-
2010-1155; Directorate Identifier 2010-NM-238-AD.

Effective Date

    (a) This airworthiness directive (AD) becomes effective December 
9, 2010.

Affected ADs

    (b) None.

Applicability

    (c) This AD applies to DASSAULT AVIATION Model MYSTERE-FALCON 50 
airplanes, certificated in any category, all serial numbers.

Subject

    (d) Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 32: Landing 
Gear.

Reason

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

[[Page 71532]]

    On two occurrences on Myst[egrave]re-Falcon 50 aeroplanes in 
service, it was detected that two pipes of the emergency brake 
system 2 located near the nose landing gear bearing were 
swapped.
    The swapping of these two pipes implies that when the Left Hand 
(LH) brake pedal is depressed, the Right Hand (RH) brake unit is 
activated, and conversely, when the RH brake pedal is depressed, the 
LH brake unit is actuated. This constitutes an unsafe condition, 
which may go unnoticed as the condition is latent until the 
emergency brake system 2 is used. This condition, if not 
corrected,
* * * * *

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) Within 7 days after the effective date of this AD, do a 
general visual inspection for correct installation (as defined in 
Dassault Service Bulletin F50-515, dated October 12, 2010) of the 
emergency brake system number 2, in accordance with the 
Accomplishment Instructions of Dassault Service Bulletin F50-515, 
dated October 12, 2010, except that work required by this AD can 
only be done by persons prescribed in 14 CFR 43.3 and 43.7.
    (h) If the emergency brake system number 2 is found installed 
incorrectly during the inspection required by paragraph (g) of this 
AD: Before further flight, install the emergency brake system number 
2 correctly, in accordance with the Accomplishment Instructions of 
Dassault Service Bulletin F50-515, dated October 12, 2010.

FAA AD Differences

    Note 1: This AD differs from the MCAI and/or service information 
as follows:
    (1) European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD 2010-0208-E, dated 
October 12, 2010, has a compliance time of ``before the next flight 
after the effective date of this AD.'' This AD requires that the 
actions be done within 7 days after the effective date of this AD.
    (2) EASA AD 2010-0208-E, dated October 12, 2010, allows the 
flightcrew to inspect the emergency brake system number 2 specified 
in accordance with Dassault Service Bulletin F50-515, dated October 
12, 2010. However, this AD requires the inspection to be performed 
by certificated maintenance personnel.

    (3) EASA AD 2010-0208-E, dated October 12, 2010, requires 
painting the pipes end of the emergency brake system number 2 and 
related unions within 7 months after the effective date of that AD. 
This AD does not require painting the pipes end of the emergency 
brake system number 2 and related unions. We might consider 
additional rulemaking to require this action in the future.

Other FAA AD Provisions

    (i) The following provisions also apply to this AD:
    (1) Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs): The Manager, 
International Branch, ANM-116, Transport Airplane Directorate, FAA, 
has the authority to approve AMOCs for this AD, if requested using 
the procedures found in 14 CFR 39.19. Send information to ATTN: Tom 
Rodriguez, Aerospace Engineer, International Branch, ANM-116, 
Transport Airplane Directorate, FAA, 1601 Lind Avenue, SW., Renton, 
Washington 98057-3356; telephone (425) 227-1137; fax (425) 227-1149. 
Before using any approved AMOC on any airplane to which the AMOC 
applies, notify your principal maintenance inspector (PMI) or 
principal avionics inspector (PAI), as appropriate, or lacking a 
principal inspector, your local Flight Standards District Office. 
The AMOC approval letter must specifically reference this AD.
    (2) Airworthy Product: For any requirement in this AD to obtain 
corrective actions from a manufacturer or other source, use these 
actions if they are FAA-approved. Corrective actions are considered 
FAA-approved if they are approved by the State of Design Authority 
(or their delegated agent). You are required to assure the product 
is airworthy before it is returned to service.
    (3) Reporting Requirements: For any reporting requirement in 
this AD, under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 
U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has 
approved the information collection requirements and has assigned 
OMB Control Number 2120-0056.
