The existing AD currently requires revising certain sections of a certain airplane flight manual, deactivating certain hydraulic accumulators, removing certain hydraulic accumulators, ultrasonic inspections for cracks on accumulators and screw caps and replacement if necessary, and replacing certain accumulators. Since we issued that AD, we have determined that, for certain airplanes, reducing the compliance time for a certain replacement is necessary to ensure that the identified unsafe condition is addressed. This proposed AD would continue to require the existing actions from the existing AD. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct hydraulic accumulator screw cap/end cap failure, which could result in the loss of the associated hydraulic E:\FR\FM\19APP1.SGM 19APP1 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 76 / Thursday, April 19, 2012 / Proposed Rules tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS system and high-energy impact damage to adjacent systems and structure, and consequent loss of control of the airplane.

We will also post a report summarizing each substantive verbal contact we receive about this proposed AD. FAA’s Determination and Requirements of This Proposed AD Discussion On October 20, 2011, we issued AD 2011–23–08, Amendment 39–16859 (76 FR 71241, November 17, 2011). That AD required actions intended to address an unsafe condition on certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL–600–2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) Airplanes. Since we issued AD 2011–23–08, Amendment 39–16859 (76 FR 71241, November 17, 2011), we have determined that the compliance time specified in paragraph (n) of this proposed AD (referred to as paragraph (q) in AD 2011–23–08) must be clarified. We are including the phrase, ‘‘whichever occurs first,’’ in paragraph (n)(1) of this AD, which requires operators to perform the action at the earlier of the times. We have determined that the proposed reduced compliance time is necessary to address the identified unsafe condition in a timely manner. This compliance time also matches the compliance time given in Canadian Airworthiness Directive CF– 2010–24, dated August 3, 2010. We have also determined that certain phrases need to be added and certain phrases need to be removed from certain credit paragraphs of this AD. We have revised paragraphs (o)(4) and (o)(5) of this proposed AD to specify ‘‘before December 22, 2011 (the effective date of AD 2011–23–08, Amendment 39–16859 (76 FR 71241, November 17, 2011)),’’ instead of ‘‘before November 4, 2010.’’ We have revised paragraph (o)(2) of this AD by removing ‘‘hydraulic system No. 1’’ because the service information in paragraph (o)(2) does not specify to remove the hydraulic system No. 1 accumulator. We have also revised paragraph (o)(2) of this proposed AD by removing Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R–32–107, Revision A, dated June 17, 2010, because credit for that service bulletin is already given in paragraph (m) of this proposed AD. You may obtain further information by examining the MCAI in the AD docket. Changes to Existing AD PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 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. This proposed AD would retain all requirements of AD 2011–23–08, Amendment 39–16859 (76 FR 71241, November 17, 2011). Since AD 2011– 23–08 was issued, the AD format has been revised, and certain paragraphs have been rearranged. As a result, the corresponding paragraph identifiers have changed in this proposed AD, as listed in the following table: REVISED PARAGRAPH IDENTIFIERS Requirement in AD 2011–23–08, Amendment 39–16859 (76 FR 71241, November 17, 2011) Corresponding requirement in this proposed AD paragraph (l) paragraph (m) paragraph (n) paragraph (o) paragraph (p) paragraph (q) paragraph (r) paragraph (s) paragraph (p)(1) paragraph (p)(2) paragraph (p)(3) paragraph (l) paragraph (m) paragraph (n) paragraph (o)(4) paragraph (o)(5) We have also revised paragraph (j) (paragraph (j) of AD 2011–23–08, Amendment 39–16859 (76 FR 71241, November 17, 2011)) of this proposed AD to refer to paragraph (k) of this AD instead of paragraph (l)(1) (paragraph (l) of AD 2011–23–08) for the applicable compliance times. Differences Between This AD and the MCAI or Service Information The actions specified in Canadian Airworthiness Directive CF–2010–24, dated August 3, 2010, apply only to Tactair accumulators. The actions required by paragraphs (h), (i), and (m) of this proposed AD apply to all accumulators in the positions specified in paragraphs (h), (i), and (l) of this proposed AD. While Canadian Airworthiness Directive CF–2010–24, dated August 3, 2010, does not require replacement of the reducer of the hydraulic system No. E:\FR\FM\19APP1.SGM 19APP1 23422 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 76 / Thursday, April 19, 2012 / Proposed Rules 1 with a new reducer, paragraph (n) of this proposed AD does. Costs of Compliance Based on the service information, we estimate that this proposed AD would affect about 605 products of U.S. registry. The actions that are required by AD 2011–23–08, Amendment 39–16859 (76 FR 71241, November 17, 2011), and retained in this proposed AD take about 33 work-hours per product, at an average labor rate of $85 per work hour. Required parts cost about $3,054 per product. Where the service information lists required parts costs that are covered under warranty, we have assumed that there will be no charge for these parts. As we do not control warranty coverage for affected parties, some parties may incur costs higher than estimated here. Based on these figures, the estimated cost of the currently required actions is $5,859 per product. The new requirements of this proposed AD add no additional economic burden. 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. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS 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: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:50 Apr 18, 2012 Jkt 226001 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. § 39.13 [Amended] 2. The FAA amends § 39.13 by removing airworthiness directive (AD) 2011–23–08, Amendment 39–16859 (76 FR 71241, November 17, 2011), and adding the following new AD: Bombardier, Inc.: Docket No. FAA–2012– 0420; Directorate Identifier 2011–NM– 284–AD.

RIN 2120-AA64


Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

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

SUMMARY: We propose to supersede an existing airworthiness directive 
(AD) that applies to certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-2B19 
(Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes. The existing AD currently 
requires revising certain sections of a certain airplane flight manual, 
deactivating certain hydraulic accumulators, removing certain hydraulic 
accumulators, ultrasonic inspections for cracks on accumulators and 
screw caps and replacement if necessary, and replacing certain 
accumulators. Since we issued that AD, we have determined that, for 
certain airplanes, reducing the compliance time for a certain 
replacement is necessary to ensure that the identified unsafe condition 
is addressed. This proposed AD would continue to require the existing 
actions from the existing AD. We are proposing this AD to detect and 
correct hydraulic accumulator screw cap/end cap failure, which could 
result in the loss of the associated hydraulic

[[Page 23421]]

system and high-energy impact damage to adjacent systems and structure, 
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:
     Federal eRulemaking Portal: Go to http://www.regulations.gov. Follow the instructions for submitting comments.

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-2012-0420; 
Directorate Identifier 2011-NM-284-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 October 20, 2011, we issued AD 2011-23-08, Amendment 39-16859 
(76 FR 71241, November 17, 2011). That AD required actions intended to 
address an unsafe condition on certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-
2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) Airplanes.
    Since we issued AD 2011-23-08, Amendment 39-16859 (76 FR 71241, 
November 17, 2011), we have determined that the compliance time 
specified in paragraph (n) of this proposed AD (referred to as 
paragraph (q) in AD 2011-23-08) must be clarified. We are including the 
phrase, ``whichever occurs first,'' in paragraph (n)(1) of this AD, 
which requires operators to perform the action at the earlier of the 
times. We have determined that the proposed reduced compliance time is 
necessary to address the identified unsafe condition in a timely 
manner. This compliance time also matches the compliance time given in 
Canadian Airworthiness Directive CF-2010-24, dated August 3, 2010.
    We have also determined that certain phrases need to be added and 
certain phrases need to be removed from certain credit paragraphs of 
this AD. We have revised paragraphs (o)(4) and (o)(5) of this proposed 
AD to specify ``before December 22, 2011 (the effective date of AD 
2011-23-08, Amendment 39-16859 (76 FR 71241, November 17, 2011)),'' 
instead of ``before November 4, 2010.'' We have revised paragraph 
(o)(2) of this AD by removing ``hydraulic system No. 1'' because the 
service information in paragraph (o)(2) does not specify to remove the 
hydraulic system No. 1 accumulator. We have also revised paragraph 
(o)(2) of this proposed AD by removing Bombardier Service Bulletin 
601R-32-107, Revision A, dated June 17, 2010, because credit for that 
service bulletin is already given in paragraph (m) of this proposed AD. 
You may obtain further information by examining the MCAI in the AD 
docket.

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.

Changes to Existing AD

    This proposed AD would retain all requirements of AD 2011-23-08, 
Amendment 39-16859 (76 FR 71241, November 17, 2011). Since AD 2011-23-
08 was issued, the AD format has been revised, and certain paragraphs 
have been rearranged. As a result, the corresponding paragraph 
identifiers have changed in this proposed AD, as listed in the 
following table:

                      Revised Paragraph Identifiers
------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                         Corresponding
Requirement in AD 2011-23-08, Amendment 39-16859 (76    requirement in
            FR 71241, November 17, 2011)               this  proposed AD

paragraph (q).......................................      paragraph (n)
paragraph (r).......................................   paragraph (o)(4)
paragraph (s).......................................   paragraph (o)(5)
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We have also revised paragraph (j) (paragraph (j) of AD 2011-23-08, 
Amendment 39-16859 (76 FR 71241, November 17, 2011)) of this proposed 
AD to refer to paragraph (k) of this AD instead of paragraph (l)(1) 
(paragraph (l) of AD 2011-23-08) for the applicable compliance times.

Differences Between This AD and the MCAI or Service Information

    The actions specified in Canadian Airworthiness Directive CF-2010-
24, dated August 3, 2010, apply only to Tactair accumulators. The 
actions required by paragraphs (h), (i), and (m) of this proposed AD 
apply to all accumulators in the positions specified in paragraphs (h), 
(i), and (l) of this proposed AD.
    While Canadian Airworthiness Directive CF-2010-24, dated August 3, 
2010, does not require replacement of the reducer of the hydraulic 
system No.

[[Page 23422]]

1 with a new reducer, paragraph (n) of this proposed AD does.

Costs of Compliance

    Based on the service information, we estimate that this proposed AD 
would affect about 605 products of U.S. registry.
    The actions that are required by AD 2011-23-08, Amendment 39-16859 
(76 FR 71241, November 17, 2011), and retained in this proposed AD take 
about 33 work-hours per product, at an average labor rate of $85 per 
work hour. Required parts cost about $3,054 per product. Where the 
service information lists required parts costs that are covered under 
warranty, we have assumed that there will be no charge for these parts. 
As we do not control warranty coverage for affected parties, some 
parties may incur costs higher than estimated here. Based on these 
figures, the estimated cost of the currently required actions is $5,859 
per product.
    The new requirements of this proposed AD add no additional economic 
burden.

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.

    2. The FAA amends Sec.  39.13 by removing airworthiness directive 
(AD) 2011-23-08, Amendment 39-16859 (76 FR 71241, November 17, 2011), 
and adding the following new AD:

Bombardier, Inc.: Docket No. FAA-2012-0420; Directorate Identifier 
2011-NM-284-AD.

(a) Comments Due Date

    We must receive comments by June 4, 2012.

(b) Affected ADs

    This AD supersedes AD 2011-23-08, Amendment 39-16859 (76 FR 
71241, November 17, 2011).

(c) Applicability

    This AD applies to Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional

performed within the compliance times specified, unless the actions 
have already been done.

(g) Retained Airplane Flight Manual (AFM) Revision, With Revised 
Service Information

    This paragraph restates the revision required by paragraph (g) 
of AD 2010-22-02, Amendment 39-16481 (75 FR 64636, October 20, 
2010), with revised service information. Within 30 days after 
November 4, 2010 (the effective date of AD 2010-22-02, Amendment 39-
16481 (75 FR 64636, October 20, 2010)), revise the Limitations 
section, Normal Procedures section, and Abnormal Procedures section 
of the Canadair Regional Jet AFM, CSP A-012, by incorporating 
Canadair Regional Jet Temporary Revision (TR) RJ/186-1, dated August 
24, 2010, into the applicable section of Canadair Regional Jet AFM, 
CSP A-012. Thereafter, except as provided by paragraph (p) of this 
AD, no alternative actions specified in Canadair Regional Jet TR RJ/
186-1, dated August 24, 2010, may be approved.

    Note 1 to paragraph (g) of this AD:  The actions required by 
paragraph (g) of this AD may be done by inserting a copy of Canadair 
Regional Jet TR RJ/186-1, dated August 24, 2010, into the applicable 
section of the Canadair Regional Jet AFM, CSP A-012. When this TR 
has been included in the general revisions of this AFM, the general 
revisions may be inserted into this AFM, and this TR removed, 
provided that the relevant information in the general revision is 
identical to that in Canadair Regional Jet TR RJ/186-1, dated August 
24, 2010.

(h) Retained Deactivation of the Hydraulic System No. 3 Accumulator,
