SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 to supersede AD 2011–13–05, Amendment 39–16728 (76 FR 40222, July 8, 2011). That AD applies to Turbomeca S.A. Arriel 2B and 2B1 turboshaft engines. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on June 1, 2012 (77 FR 32437). That NPRM proposed to continue to require accomplishment of the TU166 modification on Turbomeca S.A. Arriel 2B and 2B1 turboshaft engines. That NPRM also proposed to require adding the Arriel 2S2 engine to the applicability of engines requiring the TU166 modification with a different compliance time. 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. Request To Add the Arriel 2C2 Engine Model Turbomeca S.A. requested that we add the Arriel 2C2 engine model to the proposed AD applicability. The commenter referenced European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD 2012–0124, dated July 9, 2012, issued to include the Arriel 2C2 engine model requiring the TU166 modification. We agree. We added the Arriel 2C2 engine model to the AD applicability. Request To Reduce Compliance Time Sikorsky requested that we reduce the proposed AD compliance time for Arriel 2S2 engine models to within 100-cyclesin-service (CIS), instead of 500 CIS, and, add a calendar time limitation of ‘‘but not later than September 30, 2012,’’ based on the EASA AD having a compliance date of November 16, 2012. The commenter believes that the frequency of occurrence of the blade ruptures, when the risk is analyzed per the FAA Advisory Circular 39–8, PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 targeting a reasonable risk, argues for an earlier TU166 modification. We do not agree. The risk analyzed by Sikorsky had inputs that were too conservative. We did not change the AD. Conclusion We reviewed the relevant data, considered the comments received, and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting the AD with the changes described previously. Costs of Compliance Based on the service information, we estimate that this AD will affect about 551 products of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it will take about 60 workhours per product to comply with this AD. The average labor rate is $85 per work-hour. Required parts will cost about $3,900 per product. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of the AD on U.S. operators to be $4,959,000. 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 have determined that 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), E:\FR\FM\19SER1.SGM 19SER1 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 182 / Wednesday, September 19, 2012 / Rules and Regulations (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.

Airworthiness Directives; Turbomeca S.A. Turboshaft Engines

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: We are superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) 
for certain Turbomeca S.A. Arriel 2B and 2B1 turboshaft engines. That 
AD currently requires accomplishment of the TU166 modification. This 
new AD requires adding the Arriel 2S2 and 2C2 engines to the 
applicability of engines requiring the TU166 modification with 
different compliance times. This AD was prompted by reports of an 
accident involving a twin-engine helicopter powered by two Arriel 2S2 
engines. We are issuing this AD to prevent rupture of a gas generator 
(GG) turbine blade, which could result in an uncommanded in-flight 
shutdown and a forced landing or accident.

DATES: This AD is effective October 24, 2012.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of certain publications listed in the AD as of October 24, 
2012.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of a certain other publication listed in this AD as of August

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion

    We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR 
part 39 to supersede AD 2011-13-05, Amendment 39-16728 (76 FR 40222, 
July 8, 2011). That AD applies to Turbomeca S.A. Arriel 2B and 2B1 
turboshaft engines. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on June 
1, 2012 (77 FR 32437). That NPRM proposed to continue to require 
accomplishment of the TU166 modification on Turbomeca S.A. Arriel 2B 
and 2B1 turboshaft engines. That NPRM also proposed to require adding 
the Arriel 2S2 engine to the applicability of engines requiring the 
TU166 modification with a different compliance time.

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.

Request To Add the Arriel 2C2 Engine Model

    Turbomeca S.A. requested that we add the Arriel 2C2 engine model to 
the proposed AD applicability. The commenter referenced European 
Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD 2012-0124, dated July 9, 2012, issued 
to include the Arriel 2C2 engine model requiring the TU166 
modification.
    We agree. We added the Arriel 2C2 engine model to the AD 
applicability.

Request To Reduce Compliance Time

    Sikorsky requested that we reduce the proposed AD compliance time 
for Arriel 2S2 engine models to within 100-cycles-in-service (CIS), 
instead of 500 CIS, and, add a calendar time limitation of ``but not 
later than September 30, 2012,'' based on the EASA AD having a 
compliance date of November 16, 2012. The commenter believes that the 
frequency of occurrence of the blade ruptures, when the risk is 
analyzed per the FAA Advisory Circular 39-8, targeting a reasonable 
risk, argues for an earlier TU166 modification.
    We do not agree. The risk analyzed by Sikorsky had inputs that were 
too conservative. We did not change the AD.

Conclusion

    We reviewed the relevant data, considered the comments received, 
and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting 
the AD with the changes described previously.

Costs of Compliance

    Based on the service information, we estimate that this AD will 
affect about 551 products of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it 
will take about 60 work-hours per product to comply with this AD. The 
average labor rate is $85 per work-hour. Required parts will cost about 
$3,900 per product. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of the 
AD on U.S. operators to be $4,959,000.

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 have determined that 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),

[[Page 58003]]

    (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.
