SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion On March 27, 2008, we issued AD 2008–07–10, Amendment 39–15451 (73 FR 18706, April 7, 2008), for certain Hawker Beechcraft Corporation Models B200, B200GT, B300, and B300C airplanes. That AD requires fabricating and installing a placard incorporating E:\FR\FM\16DER1.SGM 16DER1 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 241 / Thursday, December 16, 2010 / Rules and Regulations information that limits operation when there is known or forecast icing and requires replacing a section of the pneumatic supply tube for the tail deice system with a new tube of a different material. That AD resulted from reports of collapsed tail deice boot pneumatic supply tubes. We issued that AD to prevent collapsed pneumatic supply tubes, which could result in failure of the tail deice boots to operate. This failure could lead to loss of control in icing conditions. Actions Since AD Was Issued Since we issued AD 2008–07–10, we received reports of two failures of the pneumatic supply tube for the tail deice system outside the area covered by AD 2008–07–10 on an affected Model B300 airplane and on an affected Model B300C airplane. Relevant Service Information We reviewed Hawker Beechcraft Mandatory Service Bulletin SB 30–3889, Rev. 1, dated October 2010. The service information describes procedures for replacing the entire length of the pneumatic supply tube for the tail deice system with a new tube of a different material. FAA’s Determination We are issuing this AD because we evaluated all the relevant information and determined the unsafe condition described previously is likely to exist or develop in other products of the same type design. AD Requirements This AD requires accomplishing the actions specified in the service information described previously. FAA’s Justification and 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 condition could result in failure of the tail deice boots to operate. This failure could lead to loss of control in icing conditions. Therefore, we find that notice and opportunity for prior public comment are impracticable and that good cause exists for making this amendment effective in less than 30 days. Comments Invited This AD is a final rule that involves requirements affecting flight safety, and 78597 we did not provide you with notice and an opportunity to provide your comments before it becomes effective. However, we invite you to send any written data, views, or arguments about this AD. Send your comments to an address listed under the ADDRESSES section. Include the docket number FAA–2010–1242 and directorate identifier 2010–CE–062–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. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this AD affects 90 airplanes of U.S. registry. We estimate the following costs to comply with this AD: ESTIMATED COSTS Action Labor Cost Fabricate placard (retained action from AD 2008– 07–10). Replace entire length of the pneumatic supply tube for the tail de-ice system. According to the manufacturer, some of the costs of this AD may be covered under warranty, thereby reducing the cost impact on affected individuals. We do not control warranty coverage for affected individuals. As a result, we have included all costs in our cost estimate. jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with RULES Authority for This Rulemaking Title 49 of the United States Code specifies the FAA’s authority to issue rules on aviation safety.

That NPRM was published in the Federal Register on October 13, 2010 (75 FR 62716), and proposed to supersede AD 2004–03–29, Amendment 39–13473 (69 FR 6553; February 11, 2004) and AD 2008–14–12, Amendment 39–15607 (73 FR 40951; July 17, 2008). That NPRM proposed to correct an unsafe condition for the specified products. The MCAI states that: 14 CFR Part 39 [Docket No. FAA–2010–1021; Directorate Identifier 2010–CE–053–AD; Amendment 39–16541; AD 2010–26–02] RIN 2120–AA64 Airworthiness Directives; Pacific Aerospace Limited Model FU24–954 and FU24A–954 Airplanes Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of Transportation (DOT). ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: We are superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued 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: jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with RULES To prevent possible in-flight failure of the vertical stabiliser, leading to loss of control of the aircraft * * * We are issuing this AD to require actions to correct the unsafe condition on these products.

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 received no comments on the NPRM or on the determination of the cost to the public. Conclusion We reviewed the available data 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 PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 78599 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. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this AD will affect 3 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 $255 or $85 per product. In addition, we estimate that it would take about 10.5 work-hours and require parts costing $14,375 to comply with the replacement requirements of this proposed AD. Based on these figures, we estimate the replacement cost of this AD to the U.S. operators to be $45,802.50, or $15,267.50 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.

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.

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 E:\FR\FM\16DER1.SGM 16DER1

ACTION: Final rule; request for comments.

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

SUMMARY: We are superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) 
for the products listed above. That AD currently requires fabricating 
and installing a placard incorporating information that limits 
operation when there is known or forecast icing and requires replacing 
a section of the pneumatic supply tube for the tail deice system with a 
new tube of a different material. This AD requires fabricating and 
installing a placard incorporating information that limits operation 
when there is known or forecast icing and requires replacing the entire 
length of the pneumatic supply tube for the tail deice system with a 
new tube of a different material. This AD was prompted by reports of 
two failures of the pneumatic supply tube for the tail deice system 
outside the area covered by AD 2008-07-10. We are issuing this AD to 
prevent collapsed pneumatic supply tubes, which could result in failure 
of the tail deice boots to operate. This failure could lead to loss of 
control in icing conditions.

DATES: This AD is effective December 20, 2010.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of a certain publication listed in the AD as of December 20, 
2010.
    We must receive any comments on this AD by January 31, 2011.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion

    On March 27, 2008, we issued AD 2008-07-10, Amendment 39-15451 (73 
FR 18706, April 7, 2008), for certain Hawker Beechcraft Corporation 
Models B200, B200GT, B300, and B300C airplanes. That AD requires 
fabricating and installing a placard incorporating

[[Page 78597]]

information that limits operation when there is known or forecast icing 
and requires replacing a section of the pneumatic supply tube for the 
tail deice system with a new tube of a different material. That AD 
resulted from reports of collapsed tail deice boot pneumatic supply 
tubes. We issued that AD to prevent collapsed pneumatic supply tubes, 
which could result in failure of the tail deice boots to operate. This 
failure could lead to loss of control in icing conditions.

Actions Since AD Was Issued

    Since we issued AD 2008-07-10, we received reports of two failures 
of the pneumatic supply tube for the tail deice system outside the area 
covered by AD 2008-07-10 on an affected Model B300 airplane and on an 
affected Model B300C airplane.

Relevant Service Information

    We reviewed Hawker Beechcraft Mandatory Service Bulletin SB 30-
3889, Rev. 1, dated October 2010. The service information describes 
procedures for replacing the entire length of the pneumatic supply tube 
for the tail deice system with a new tube of a different material.

FAA's Determination

    We are issuing this AD because we evaluated all the relevant 
information and determined the unsafe condition described previously is 
likely to exist or develop in other products of the same type design.

AD Requirements

    This AD requires accomplishing the actions specified in the service 
information described previously.

FAA's Justification and 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 
condition could result in failure of the tail deice boots to operate. 
This failure could lead to loss of control in icing conditions. 
Therefore, we find that notice and opportunity for prior public comment 
are impracticable and that good cause exists for making this amendment 
effective in less than 30 days.

Comments Invited

    This AD is a final rule that involves requirements affecting flight 
safety, and we did not provide you with notice and an opportunity to 
provide your comments before it becomes effective. However, we invite 
you to send any written data, views, or arguments about this AD. Send 
your comments to an address listed under the ADDRESSES section. Include 
the docket number FAA-2010-1242 and directorate identifier 2010-CE-062-
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.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this AD affects 90 airplanes of U.S. registry.
    We estimate the following costs to comply with this AD:

                                                 Estimated Costs
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                                     Cost per      Cost on U.S.

 tail de-ice system.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    According to the manufacturer, some of the costs of this AD may be 
covered under warranty, thereby reducing the cost impact on affected 
individuals. We do not control warranty coverage for affected 
individuals. As a result, we have included all costs in our cost 
estimate.

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

    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),
    (3) Will not affect intrastate aviation in Alaska, and
    (4) 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.
