Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 219 / Tuesday, November 13, 2012 / Rules and Regulations without substantive change from those previously issued. It is unlikely that prior public comment would result in a significant change from the substance contained herein. Therefore, because a delay would significantly affect the certification of the airplane, the FAA has determined that prior public notice and comment are unnecessary and impracticable, and good cause exists for adopting these special conditions upon issuance. The FAA is requesting comments to allow interested persons to submit views that may not have been submitted in response to the prior opportunities for comment described above. DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 25 SUMMARY: Aircraft, Aviation safety, Reporting and recordkeeping requirements. The authority citation for these special conditions is as follows: Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701, 44702, 44704. The Special Conditions erowe on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with Accordingly, pursuant to the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the following special conditions are issued as part of the type certification basis for ATR–GIE Avions de Transport Regional Models ATR42– 500 and ATR72–212A airplanes. 1. Airplane Electronic System Security Protection from Unauthorized External Access. The applicant must ensure airplane electronic system security protection from access to or by unauthorized sources external to the airplane, including those possibly caused by maintenance activity. 2. The applicant must ensure that electronic system security threats are identified and assessed, and that effective electronic system security protection strategies are implemented to protect the airplane from all adverse impacts on safety, functionality, and continued airworthiness. 3. The applicant must establish appropriate procedures to allow the operator to ensure that continued airworthiness of the aircraft is maintained, including all post-typecertification modifications that may have an impact on the approved electronic system-security safeguards.

Airplanes Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of Transportation (DOT). ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: We are revising an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for 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. That 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). This new AD corrects an erroneous service document number and removes the other erroneously cited service document from that AD. This new AD was prompted by an error that was discovered in one service document number, and a determination that credit for accomplishing actions in another erroneously cited service document should be removed from that AD. We are issuing this AD to prevent pitotstatic 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: This AD becomes effective December 18, 2012. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in this AD as of November 23, 2011 (76 FR 64801, October 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 was published in the Federal Register on April 18, 2012 (77 FR 23169), and proposed to revise AD 2011–21–07, Amendment 39–16830 (76 FR 64801, October 19, 2011). That NPRM proposed to correct an unsafe condition for the specified products. 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) of that AD. Comments We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We have considered the comment received. Request for Credit for Previous Actions Air Wisconsin (AWI) requested that we revise the NPRM (77 FR 23169, April 18, 2012) to continue to give credit for previous actions for airplanes modified using Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R–34–147, dated April 1, 2009. AWI provided the following reasons for its request. • AWI stated that in the original issue of Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R– 34–147, dated April 1, 2009, for airplane serial numbers (S/N) 7003 through 7890, this service information called for the use of a parts kit that was different from the parts kit used for airplane S/Ns 7891 and subsequent. AWI stated that it discovered, during the use of that service information, that there was no difference between the two groups of airplanes. AWI stated that airplane S/Ns 7891 and subsequent needed to use the same parts kit as airplane S/Ns 7003 through 7890, with the only difference being that the kit for airplane S/Ns 7891 and subsequent lacked two tee fittings, part number AS1033W040406, which were contained in the kits for airplane S/Ns 7003 through 7891. AWI stated that, as a result of its discovery, E:\FR\FM\13NOR1.SGM 13NOR1 erowe on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with 67560 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 219 / Tuesday, November 13, 2012 / Rules and Regulations Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R–34– 147, dated April 1, 2009, was revised to Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R–34– 147, Revision A, dated November 3, 2009, eliminating the reference to these two different groups of airplanes and correcting the materials kit to include the tee fittings. • AWI stated that Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R–34–147, Revision A, dated November 3, 2009, does nothing to change parts kits or instructions for airplane S/Ns 7003 through 7890, but only makes the correction for airplane S/Ns 7891 and subsequent. • AWI stated that airplane S/Ns 7891 and subsequent modified with the use of Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R– 34–147, dated April 1, 2009, that used the additional tee fittings are in compliance with Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R–34–147, Revision A, dated November 3, 2009. • AWI stated that it has completed this modification on its fleet of 71 affected airplanes and that airplane S/Ns 7891 and subsequent used the necessary tee fittings called for in Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R–34– 147, Revision A, dated November 3, 2009. • AWI stated that Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R–34–147, Revision A, dated November 3, 2009, clearly states on the transmittal, ‘‘The changes in this revision have no effect on aircraft that have incorporated a previous issue of the service bulletin.’’ We do not agree to provide credit for previous actions done using Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R–34–147, dated April 1, 2009. We issued the NPRM (77 FR 23169, April 18, 2012) due to an error that was discovered in AD 2011– 21–07, Amendment 39–16830 (76 FR 64801, October 19, 2011), in a service document number, and also due to a provision incorrectly giving credit for accomplishing previous actions in another erroneously cited service document. Credit for previous actions using Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R–34–147, dated April 1, 2009, is not appropriate because a modification kit requiring tee fittings was missing from that service information. In order to comply with the intent of the AD, Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R–34– 147, Revision A, dated November 3, 2009, corrected the kit error, and hence, is mandated by this revised AD to correct the unsafe condition. Under the provisions of paragraph (j) of this AD, however, we will consider requests for approval of an alternative method of compliance (AMOC) if sufficient data are submitted to substantiate that a different method of compliance would provide an acceptable level of safety. VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:16 Nov 09, 2012 Jkt 229001 We have not changed the AD in this regard. Conclusion We reviewed the available data, including the comment received, 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 (77 FR 23169, April 18, 2012) for correcting the unsafe condition; and • Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was already proposed in the NPRM (77 FR 23169, April 18, 2012). Costs of Compliance We estimate that this AD will affect about 1,041 products of U.S. registry. The new requirements of this AD add no additional economic burden. The current costs for this AD are repeated for the convenience of affected operators. The actions that are required by AD 2011–21–07, Amendment 39–16830 (76 FR 64801, October 19, 2011), and retained in this AD take about 2 workhours per product, at an average labor rate of $85 per work-hour. Required parts cost about $1,200 per product. Based on these figures, the estimated cost of the currently required actions is $1,370 per product. 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 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 PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 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 AD and placed it in the AD docket. Examining the AD Docket You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at http:// www.regulations.gov; or in person at the Docket Operations office between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. The AD docket contains the NPRM (77 FR 23169, April 18, 2012). The regulatory evaluation, any comments received, and other information. The street address for the Docket Operations office (telephone (800) 647–5527) is in the ADDRESSES section. Comments will be available in the AD docket shortly after receipt.

Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of 
Transportation (DOT).

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: We are revising an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for 
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. That 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). This new AD corrects an erroneous service 
document number and removes the other erroneously cited service 
document from that AD. This new AD was prompted by an error that was 
discovered in one service document number, and a determination that 
credit for accomplishing actions in another erroneously cited service 
document should be removed from that AD. We are issuing 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: This AD becomes effective December 18, 2012.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of certain publications listed in this AD as of November 23, 
2011 (76 FR 64801, October 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 was published in the Federal Register on April 18, 2012 (77 
FR 23169), and proposed to revise AD 2011-21-07, Amendment 39-16830 (76 
FR 64801, October 19, 2011). That NPRM proposed to correct an unsafe 
condition for the specified products.
    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) of that AD.

Comments

    We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing 
this AD. We have considered the comment received.

Request for Credit for Previous Actions

    Air Wisconsin (AWI) requested that we revise the NPRM (77 FR 23169, 
April 18, 2012) to continue to give credit for previous actions for 
airplanes modified using Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R-34-147, dated 
April 1, 2009. AWI provided the following reasons for its request.
     AWI stated that in the original issue of Bombardier 
Service Bulletin 601R-34-147, dated April 1, 2009, for airplane serial 
numbers (S/N) 7003 through 7890, this service information called for 
the use of a parts kit that was different from the parts kit used for 
airplane S/Ns 7891 and subsequent. AWI stated that it discovered, 
during the use of that service information, that there was no 
difference between the two groups of airplanes. AWI stated that 
airplane S/Ns 7891 and subsequent needed to use the same parts kit as 
airplane S/Ns 7003 through 7890, with the only difference being that 
the kit for airplane S/Ns 7891 and subsequent lacked two tee fittings, 
part number AS1033W040406, which were contained in the kits for 
airplane S/Ns 7003 through 7891. AWI stated that, as a result of its 
discovery,

[[Page 67560]]

Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R-34-147, dated April 1, 2009, was 
revised to Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R-34-147, Revision A, dated 
November 3, 2009, eliminating the reference to these two different 
groups of airplanes and correcting the materials kit to include the tee 
fittings.
     AWI stated that Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R-34-147, 
Revision A, dated November 3, 2009, does nothing to change parts kits 
or instructions for airplane S/Ns 7003 through 7890, but only makes the 
correction for airplane S/Ns 7891 and subsequent.
     AWI stated that airplane S/Ns 7891 and subsequent modified 
with the use of Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R-34-147, dated April 1, 
2009, that used the additional tee fittings are in compliance with 
Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R-34-147, Revision A, dated November 3, 
2009.
     AWI stated that it has completed this modification on its 
fleet of 71 affected airplanes and that airplane S/Ns 7891 and 
subsequent used the necessary tee fittings called for in Bombardier 
Service Bulletin 601R-34-147, Revision A, dated November 3, 2009.
     AWI stated that Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R-34-147, 
Revision A, dated November 3, 2009, clearly states on the transmittal, 
``The changes in this revision have no effect on aircraft that have 
incorporated a previous issue of the service bulletin.''
    We do not agree to provide credit for previous actions done using 
Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R-34-147, dated April 1, 2009. We issued 
the NPRM (77 FR 23169, April 18, 2012) due to an error that was 
discovered in AD 2011-21-07, Amendment 39-16830 (76 FR 64801, October 
19, 2011), in a service document number, and also due to a provision 
incorrectly giving credit for accomplishing previous actions in another 
erroneously cited service document. Credit for previous actions using 
Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R-34-147, dated April 1, 2009, is not 
appropriate because a modification kit requiring tee fittings was 
missing from that service information. In order to comply with the 
intent of the AD, Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R-34-147, Revision A, 
dated November 3, 2009, corrected the kit error, and hence, is mandated 
by this revised AD to correct the unsafe condition. Under the 
provisions of paragraph (j) of this AD, however, we will consider 
requests for approval of an alternative method of compliance (AMOC) if 
sufficient data are submitted to substantiate that a different method 
of compliance would provide an acceptable level of safety. We have not 
changed the AD in this regard.

Conclusion

    We reviewed the available data, including the comment received, 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 (77 FR 23169, April 18, 2012) for correcting the unsafe condition; 
and
     Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was 
already proposed in the NPRM (77 FR 23169, April 18, 2012).

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this AD will affect about 1,041 products of U.S. 
registry. The new requirements of this AD add no additional economic 
burden. The current costs for this AD are repeated for the convenience 
of affected operators. The actions that are required by AD 2011-21-07, 
Amendment 39-16830 (76 FR 64801, October 19, 2011), and retained in 
this AD take about 2 work-hours per product, at an average labor rate 
of $85 per work-hour. Required parts cost about $1,200 per product. 
Based on these figures, the estimated cost of the currently required 
actions is $1,370 per product.

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 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 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 AD and placed it in the AD docket.
