ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Hawker Beechcraft Corporation Models B300 and B300C (C–12W) airplanes. This AD was prompted by an error found in the take-off speeds and field lengths published in the FAA-approved airplane flight manual. This AD requires a correction to the published data in the airplane flight manual and the pilot’s operating handbook to ensure it corresponds with the published data in the pilot’s checklist. This condition, if not corrected, could result in a pilot taking off from shorter runways than required by the airplane if the airplane loses an engine after takeoff decision speed (V1). This could result in the airplane running out of runway before take-off can be accomplished. We are issuing this AD to correct the unsafe condition on these products. DATES: This AD is effective August 19, 2011. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of a certain publication listed in the AD as of August 19, 2011. ADDRESSES: For service information identified in this AD, contact Hawker Beechcraft Corporation, 9709 East Central, Wichita, Kansas 67201; telephone: (316) 676–5034; fax: (316) 676–6614; Internet: https:// www.hawkerbeechcraft.com/ service_support/pubs/.

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 published in the Federal Register on April 29, 2011 (76 FR 23921). That NPRM proposed to require inserting an update to the performance charts in the FAA-approved Airplane Flight Manual and the Pilot’s Operating Handbook, part number (P/N) 130– 590031–245. The required runway distances published in the current manual could be up to 320 feet shorter than what is necessary. Hawker Beechcraft Corporation determined data in the pilot’s checklist (P/N 130– 590031–273) was correct. This condition, if not corrected, could result in taking off from shorter runways than required by the airplane if the airplane loses an engine after takeoff decision speed (V1). This could result in the airplane running out of runway before take-off can be accomplished. 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 relevant data and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting the AD as proposed except for minor editorial changes. We have determined that these minor changes: • Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the NPRM for correcting the unsafe condition; and • Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was already proposed in the NPRM. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this proposed AD affects 46 airplanes of U.S. registry.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 to include an airworthiness directive (AD) that would apply to the specified products.

Comments We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. The following presents the comments received on the proposal and the FAA’s response to each comment. B/E Aerospace supports the NPRM. Request To Address Past Production Cut Over Point Airplanes The Boeing Company (Boeing) stated that a statement should be included in the final rule AD action to address installation of the affected oxygen mask assemblies on Boeing airplanes that are not included in existing Boeing service bulletins because these airplanes are past production cut over point. Boeing stated that, due to long-time lag between production cut over change and the release of the AD, there is a high likelihood that on Boeing airplanes past production cut over point, but prior to release of this AD due to lack of awareness of the pending AD release, operators could have installed one of the affected oxygen mask assemblies during routine maintenance. The Applicability section of the proposed AD could mislead operators to not take corrective actions on Boeing airplanes even if they had unknowingly installed affected oxygen mask assemblies on airplanes past production cut over prior to release of the AD. This could also apply to installation of affected oxygen mask assemblies on Boeing airplanes through supplemental type certificate (STC) or through field approval. We agree with the commenter. However, the unsafe condition on Boeing airplanes will be addressed separately from this AD. If additional action is necessary to address Boeing’s concerns, additional rulemaking may be taken specific to Boeing airplanes. We have not changed the final rule AD action based on this comment. Request for Applicability Clarification Boeing stated that there is confusion between the statements in the Differences Between the Proposed AD and the Service Information section and the Applicability section in the proposed AD. The statements are contradictory and could mislead operators. In the proposed AD, it is stated in the Differences Between the Proposed AD and the Service Information section that oxygen mask E:\FR\FM\15JYR1.SGM 15JYR1

Airworthiness Directives; Hawker Beechcraft Corporation Models 
B300 and B300C (C-12W) Airplanes

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain 
Hawker Beechcraft Corporation Models B300 and B300C (C-12W) airplanes. 
This AD was prompted by an error found in the take-off speeds and field 
lengths published in the FAA-approved airplane flight manual. This AD 
requires a correction to the published data in the airplane flight 
manual and the pilot's operating handbook to ensure it corresponds with 
the published data in the pilot's checklist. This condition, if not 
corrected, could result in a pilot taking off from shorter runways than 
required by the airplane if the airplane loses an engine after takeoff 
decision speed (V1). This could result in the airplane 
running out of runway before take-off can be accomplished. We are 
issuing this AD to correct the unsafe condition on these products.

DATES: This AD is effective August 19, 2011.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of a certain publication listed in the AD as of August 19, 
2011.

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 published in the Federal Register on April 29, 2011 (76 FR 
23921). That NPRM proposed to require inserting an update to the 
performance charts in the FAA-approved Airplane Flight Manual and the 
Pilot's Operating Handbook, part number (P/N) 130-590031-245. The 
required runway distances published in the current manual could be up 
to 320 feet shorter than what is necessary. Hawker Beechcraft 
Corporation determined data in the pilot's checklist (P/N 130-590031-
273) was correct. This condition, if not corrected, could result in 
taking off from shorter runways than required by the airplane if the 
airplane loses an engine after takeoff decision speed (V1). 
This could result in the airplane running out of runway before take-off 
can be accomplished.

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 relevant data and determined that air safety and 
the public interest require adopting the AD as proposed except for 
minor editorial changes. We have determined that these minor changes:
     Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the 
NPRM for correcting the unsafe condition; and
     Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was 
already proposed in the NPRM.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this proposed AD affects 46 airplanes of U.S. 
registry.

[[Page 41668]]

    We estimate the following costs to comply with this proposed 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

    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.

(e) Unsafe Condition

    This AD was prompted by an error that was discovered in the 
take-off speeds and field lengths published in the FAA-approved 
flight manual. This AD is issued to correct the published data in 
the airplane flight manual and the pilot's operating handbook and 
ensure it corresponds with the published data in the pilot's 
checklist. This condition, if not corrected, could result in taking 
off from shorter runways than required by the airplane if the 
airplane loses an engine after takeoff decision speed 
(V1). This could result in the airplane running out of 
runway before take-off can be accomplished.

    Comply with this AD within the compliance times specified, 
unless already done.
