E:\FR\FM\26OCP1.SGM 26OCP1 66208 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 207 / Wednesday, October 26, 2011 / Proposed Rules Discussion This document proposes adopting a new AD for the Sikorsky Model S–92A helicopters. This proposal would require revising the Operating Limitations section, Part 1, Section 1, Weight Limits, of the Sikorsky Model S– 92A RFM with the following statement ‘‘Performance credit for above specification engine power margin is prohibited.’’ Engine power margin is determined through power assurance checks. Previous flight manual revisions allowed for the use of above specification engine power margin as shown in the circled area of Figure 1 of this AD. The use of above-specification engine power margin is now being prohibited. Sikorsky has published various RFM revisions correcting the charts in Parts I and IV of the RFM. If those revisions have previously been incorporated into the RFM, the RFM revision specified by this proposed AD would not be required. The RFM revisions, all dated April 9, 2008, are as follows: Revision with correct charts Affected RFM jlentini on DSK4TPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS S92A–RFM–002 S92A–RFM–003 S92A–RFM–004 S92A–RFM–005 S92A–RFM–006 ................ ................ ................ ................ ................ Revision Revision Revision Revision Revision 8. 7. 6. 5. 6. This proposal is prompted by the manufacturer’s analysis of engine data that revealed the data was inaccurate in dealing with available engine power margin. The actions specified by this proposed AD are intended to prevent the use of inaccurate performance data in calculating maximum gross weight by revising the Operating Limitations section of the RFM. This unsafe condition is likely to exist or develop on other helicopters of the same type design. Therefore, the proposed AD would require inserting a limitation into the Operating Limitation section of the RFM prohibiting the use of power margin percentage credit in calculating gross weight and inserting the revisions into the Operating Limitations, Part 1, Section 1, of Sikorsky RFM SA S92A–RFM–002, –003, –004, –005, and –006. We estimate that this proposed AD would affect 37 helicopters of U.S. registry, and the proposed actions would take about 1 work hour per helicopter to insert the revisions into the RFM at an average labor rate of $85 VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:20 Oct 25, 2011 Jkt 226001 per work hour. Parts costs are not associated with this AD. Based on these figures, we estimate the total cost impact of the proposed AD on U.S. operators would be $3,145. Regulatory Findings We have determined that this proposed AD would not have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. Additionally, this proposed AD would 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 the proposed regulation: 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); 3. Will not affect intrastate aviation in Alaska to the extent that it justifies making a regulatory distinction; 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. We prepared an economic evaluation of the estimated costs to comply with this proposed AD. See the AD docket to examine the draft economic evaluation. 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.

Discussion

    This document proposes adopting a new AD for the Sikorsky Model S-
92A helicopters. This proposal would require revising the Operating 
Limitations section, Part 1, Section 1, Weight Limits, of the Sikorsky 
Model S-92A RFM with the following statement ``Performance credit for 
above specification engine power margin is prohibited.'' Engine power 
margin is determined through power assurance checks. Previous flight 
manual revisions allowed for the use of above specification engine 
power margin as shown in the circled area of Figure 1 of this AD. The 
use of above-specification engine power margin is now being prohibited. 
Sikorsky has published various RFM revisions correcting the charts in 
Parts I and IV of the RFM. If those revisions have previously been 
incorporated into the RFM, the RFM revision specified by this proposed 
AD would not be required. The RFM revisions, all dated April 9, 2008, 
are as follows:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
              Affected RFM                Revision with  correct charts
------------------------------------------------------------------------
S92A-RFM-002...........................  Revision 8.
S92A-RFM-003...........................  Revision 7.
S92A-RFM-004...........................  Revision 6.
S92A-RFM-005...........................  Revision 5.
S92A-RFM-006...........................  Revision 6.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

     This proposal is prompted by the manufacturer's analysis of engine 
data that revealed the data was inaccurate in dealing with available 
engine power margin. The actions specified by this proposed AD are 
intended to prevent the use of inaccurate performance data in 
calculating maximum gross weight by revising the Operating Limitations 
section of the RFM.
    This unsafe condition is likely to exist or develop on other 
helicopters of the same type design. Therefore, the proposed AD would 
require inserting a limitation into the Operating Limitation section of 
the RFM prohibiting the use of power margin percentage credit in 
calculating gross weight and inserting the revisions into the Operating 
Limitations, Part 1, Section 1, of Sikorsky RFM SA S92A-RFM-002, -003, 
-004, -005, and -006.
    We estimate that this proposed AD would affect 37 helicopters of 
U.S. registry, and the proposed actions would take about 1 work hour 
per helicopter to insert the revisions into the RFM at an average labor 
rate of $85 per work hour. Parts costs are not associated with this AD. 
Based on these figures, we estimate the total cost impact of the 
proposed AD on U.S. operators would be $3,145.

Regulatory Findings

    We have determined that this proposed AD would not have federalism 
implications under Executive Order 13132. Additionally, this proposed 
AD would 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 the proposed 
regulation:
    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);
    3. Will not affect intrastate aviation in Alaska to the extent that 
it justifies making a regulatory distinction; 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.
    We prepared an economic evaluation of the estimated costs to comply 
with this proposed AD. See the AD docket to examine the draft economic 
evaluation.

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.

The Proposed Amendment

    Accordingly, pursuant to the authority delegated to me by the 
Administrator, the Federal Aviation Administration proposes to amend 
part 39 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (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.


Sec.  39.13  [Amended]

    2. Section 39.13 is amended by adding a new airworthiness directive 
to read as follows:

Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation: Docket No. FAA-2011-1115; Directorate 
Identifier 2010-SW-011-AD.

    Applicability: Model S-92A helicopters, certificated in any 
category.
    Compliance: Within 90 days, unless accomplished previously.
    To prevent the use of inaccurate performance data in calculating 
the maximum gross weight, revise the Operating Limitations section 
of the Rotorcraft Flight Manual (RFM) as follows:
    (a) By making pen and ink changes, insert into the Operating 
Limitations section, Part 1, Section 1, Weight Limits, of RFM SA 
S92A-RFM-002, -003, -004, -005, and -006 the following limitation 
``Performance credit for above specification engine power margin is 
prohibited.''
    (b) If the RFM already contains the revisions appropriate for 
your helicopter as listed in the following Table 1, all dated April 
9, 2008, with the correct performance charts, without the 
performance credit as depicted in the circled area of Figure 1 of 
this AD, the operating limitation required by paragraph (a) of this 
AD does not need to be inserted into the RFM.
