Airplanes Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT. ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). AGENCY: We propose to revise an existing airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to certain Bombardier Model CL–600–2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes; all Model CL–600–2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701, & 702) airplanes; all Model CL– 600–2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705) airplanes; and all Model CL–600–2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900) airplanes. The existing AD currently requires replacing certain water accumulator assemblies having a certain part installed on the pitot and static lines of the air data computer (ADC). Since we issued that AD, an error was discovered in one service document number, and we have determined that credit for accomplishing actions in another erroneously cited service document should be removed from that AD. This proposed AD would correct the erroneous service document number and remove the other erroneously cited service document from that AD. We are proposing this AD to prevent pitot-static tubing from becoming partially or completely blocked by water, which could result in erroneous airspeed and mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:22 Apr 17, 2012 Jkt 226001 altitude indications and consequent loss of control of the airplane.

Discussion On September 28, 2011, we issued AD 2011–21–07, Amendment 39–16830 (76 FR 64801, October 19, 2011). That AD required actions intended to address an unsafe condition on the products listed above. Since we issued AD 2011–21–07, Amendment 39–16830 (76 FR 64801, October 19, 2011), an error was discovered in the document number specified in paragraph (i), ‘‘Credit for Actions Accomplished in Accordance with Previous Service Information,’’ of that AD. The citation in that paragraph should have read ‘‘Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R–34–147, Revision A, dated November 3, 2009.’’ Additionally, we have determined that ‘‘Bombardier Service Bulletin 670BA–34–147, dated April 1, 2009,’’ was incorrectly included in AD 2011–21–07 and should be removed from paragraph (i), ‘‘Credit for Actions Accomplished in Accordance with Previous Service Information,’’ of that AD. FAA’s Determination and Requirements of This Proposed 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 proposing this AD because we evaluated all pertinent information and determined an unsafe condition exists and is likely to exist or develop on other products of the same type design. Comments Invited We invite you to send any written relevant data, views, or arguments about this proposed AD. Send your comments to an address listed under the ADDRESSES section.

List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 The new requirements of this proposed AD add no additional economic burden. Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by reference, Safety. 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, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the FAA proposes to amend 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 removing airworthiness directive (AD) 2011–21–07, Amendment 39–16830 (76 FR 64801, October 19, 2011), and adding the following new AD: Bombardier, Inc.: Docket No. FAA–2012– 0335; Directorate Identifier 2011–NM– 252–AD. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS Regulatory Findings (a) Comments Due Date We determined that this proposed AD would not have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. 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 this 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; 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 a regulatory evaluation of the estimated costs to comply with this proposed AD and placed it in the AD docket. We must receive comments by June 4, 2012.

Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

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

SUMMARY: We propose to revise an existing airworthiness directive (AD) 
that applies to certain Bombardier Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional Jet 
Series 100 & 440) airplanes; all Model CL-600-2C10 (Regional Jet Series 
700, 701, & 702) airplanes; all Model CL-600-2D15 (Regional Jet Series 
705) airplanes; and all Model CL-600-2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900) 
airplanes. The existing AD currently requires replacing certain water 
accumulator assemblies having a certain part installed on the pitot and 
static lines of the air data computer (ADC). Since we issued that AD, 
an error was discovered in one service document number, and we have 
determined that credit for accomplishing actions in another erroneously 
cited service document should be removed from that AD. This proposed AD 
would correct the erroneous service document number and remove the 
other erroneously cited service document from that AD. We are proposing 
this AD to prevent pitot-static tubing from becoming partially or 
completely blocked by water, which could result in erroneous airspeed 
and altitude indications and consequent loss of control of the 
airplane.

DATES: We must receive comments on this proposed AD by June 4, 2012.

ADDRESSES: You may send comments by any of the following methods:

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Comments Invited

    We invite you to send any written relevant data, views, or 
arguments about this proposed AD. Send your comments to an address 
listed under the ADDRESSES section. Include ``Docket No. FAA-2012-0335; 
Directorate Identifier 2011-NM-252-AD'' at the beginning of your 
comments. We specifically invite comments on the overall regulatory, 
economic, environmental, and energy aspects of this proposed AD. We 
will consider all comments received by the closing date and may amend 
this proposed AD based on 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 proposed AD.

Discussion

    On September 28, 2011, we issued AD 2011-21-07, Amendment 39-16830 
(76 FR 64801, October 19, 2011). That AD required actions intended to 
address an unsafe condition on the products listed above.
    Since we issued AD 2011-21-07, Amendment 39-16830 (76 FR 64801, 
October 19, 2011), an error was discovered in the document number 
specified in paragraph (i), ``Credit for Actions Accomplished in 
Accordance with Previous Service Information,'' of that AD. The 
citation in that paragraph should have read ``Bombardier Service 
Bulletin 601R-34-147, Revision A, dated November 3, 2009.'' 
Additionally, we have determined that ``Bombardier Service Bulletin 
670BA-34-147, dated April 1, 2009,'' was incorrectly included in AD 
2011-21-07 and should be removed from paragraph (i), ``Credit for 
Actions Accomplished in Accordance with Previous Service Information,'' 
of that AD.

FAA's Determination and Requirements of This Proposed 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 proposing this AD because we 
evaluated all pertinent information and determined an unsafe condition 
exists and is likely to exist or develop on other products of the same 
type design.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this proposed AD affects 1,041 airplanes of U.S. 
registry.
    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

    We determined that this proposed AD would not have federalism 
implications under Executive Order 13132. 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 this 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; 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 a regulatory evaluation of the estimated costs to 
comply with this proposed 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.

The Proposed Amendment

    Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the 
Administrator, the FAA proposes to amend 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. The FAA amends Sec.  39.13 by removing airworthiness directive 
(AD) 2011-21-07, Amendment 39-16830 (76 FR 64801, October 19, 2011), 
and adding the following new AD:

Bombardier, Inc.: Docket No. FAA-2012-0335; Directorate Identifier 
2011-NM-252-AD.

(a) Comments Due Date

    We must receive comments by June 4, 2012.

(b) Affected ADs

    This AD revises AD 2011-21-07, Amendment 39-16830 (76 FR 64801, 
October 19, 2011).

(c) Applicability

    This AD applies to Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional 
Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes, serial numbers 7003 through 7067 
inclusive, 7069 through 7990 inclusive, 8000 through 8107 inclusive,

(e) Reason

    This AD was prompted by reports of airspeed mismatch between the 
pilot and co-pilot's airspeed indicators. We are issuing this AD 
prevent pitot-static tubing from becoming partially or completely 
blocked by water, which could result in erroneous airspeed and 
altitude indications and consequent loss of control of the airplane.
