SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 to revise AD 2004–21–08, amendment 39–13828 (69 FR 62396, October 26, 2004). That AD applies to the specified products. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on January 8, 2013 (78 FR 1155). That NPRM proposed to retain the actions of AD 2004–21–08 while requiring future compliance following a revised service bulletin that clarifies the casting numbers and part numbers to be inspected. Comments We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM (78 FR 1155, January 8, 2013) or on the determination of the cost to the public. Examining the AD Docket We are revising an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for all Cessna Aircraft Company (Cessna) Models 190, 195 (L–126A,B,C), 195A, and 195B airplanes that are equipped with certain inboard aileron hinge brackets. That AD currently requires you to repetitively inspect the affected inboard aileron hinge brackets for cracks or corrosion and replace them if cracks or corrosion is found. Replacement with aluminum brackets would terminate the need for the repetitive inspections. This new AD retains the actions of AD 2004– 21–08 while requiring future compliance following a revised service bulletin that clarifies the casting numbers and part numbers to be inspected. This AD was prompted by SUMMARY: Conclusion You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at http:// www.regulations.gov; or in person at the Docket Management Facility between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Gary Park, Aerospace Engineer, Wichita ACO, FAA, 1801 Airport Road, Wichita, KS We reviewed the relevant data and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting the AD as proposed. We have determined that these minor changes: • Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the NPRM (78 FR 1155, January 8, 2013) for correcting the unsafe condition; and • Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was already proposed in the NPRM (78 FR 1155, January 8, 2013). Costs of Compliance We estimate that this AD affects 643 airplanes of U.S. registry.

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 wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with RULES 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), (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. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by reference, Safety. Adoption of the Amendment Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:43 Apr 03, 2013 Jkt 229001 the FAA amends 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 Amendment 39–13828 (69 FR 62396, October 26, 2004), and adding the following new AD: ■ 2004–21–08 R1 Cessna Aircraft Company: Amendment 39–17400; Docket No. FAA–2012–18033; Directorate Identifier 2004–CE–16–AD. (a) Effective Date This AD is effective May 9, 2013. (b) Affected ADs This AD revises AD 2004–21–08, Amendment 39–13828, (69 FR 62396, October 26, 2004). (c) Applicability This AD affects Models 190, 195 (L– 126A,B,C), 195A, and 195B airplanes, all serial numbers, that are: (1) certificated in any category; and (2) equipped with at least one part number (P/N) 0322709 or P/N 0322709–1 inboard aileron hinge bracket. (d) Subject Joint Aircraft System Component (JASC)/ Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 2710, Aileron Control System. (e) Unsafe Condition This AD was first prompted by several reports of cracks and corrosion found on the magnesium aileron hinge brackets. Magnesium is known to be susceptible to corrosion. Since issuance of AD 2004–21–08 (69 FR 62396, October 26, 2004), reports of confusion between the casting number on the aileron hinge bracket and the part number called out in the AD have caused us to issue this revision to AD 2004–21–08. We are issuing this AD to correct the unsafe condition on these products. Parts cost $1,999 1,592 4,101 Cost per product $2,254 1,847 4,611 (g) Credit for Actions Accomplished in Accordance With Previous Service Information This paragraph provides credit for the actions required by paragraphs (h), (i), and (j) of this AD, if the actions were performed before the effective date of this AD using Cessna Aircraft Company Single Engine Service Bulletin SEB04–1, dated April 26, 2004.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: We are superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 737– 600, –700, –700C, –800, –900, and –900ER series airplanes. That AD currently requires repetitive inspections of the aft attach lugs of the elevator tab control mechanisms, and replacement of any discrepant elevator tab control mechanism. This new AD requires replacing the left and right elevator tab control mechanisms with elevator tab control mechanisms that have the modified attach lugs, which would terminate the existing requirements. This AD was prompted by reports of failure of the aft attach lugs on the elevator tab control mechanisms, which resulted in severe elevator vibration; and reports of gaps in elevator tab control mechanisms and analysis indicating that additional elevator tab control mechanisms might have bearings that will come loose. We are issuing this AD to prevent discrepancies in the aft attach lugs of the elevator tab control mechanism, which could result in severe elevator and tab vibration. Consequent structural failure of the elevator or horizontal stabilizer could result in loss of structural integrity and aircraft control. DATES: This AD is effective May 9, 2013.

The NPRM published in the Federal Register on September 20, 2012 (77 FR 58330). That NPRM proposed to continue to require repetitive inspections of the aft attach lugs of the elevator tab control mechanisms, and replacement of any discrepant elevator tab control mechanism. That NPRM also proposed to require replacing the left and right elevator tab control mechanisms with elevator tab control mechanisms that have modified attach lugs, which would terminate the existing requirements.

Airworthiness Directives; Cessna Aircraft Company Airplanes

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: We are revising an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for 
all Cessna Aircraft Company (Cessna) Models 190, 195 (L-126A,B,C), 
195A, and 195B airplanes that are equipped with certain inboard aileron 
hinge brackets. That AD currently requires you to repetitively inspect 
the affected inboard aileron hinge brackets for cracks or corrosion and 
replace them if cracks or corrosion is found. Replacement with aluminum 
brackets would terminate the need for the repetitive inspections. This 
new AD retains the actions of AD 2004-21-08 while requiring future 
compliance following a revised service bulletin that clarifies the 
casting numbers and part numbers to be inspected. This AD was prompted 
by reports of confusion between the casting number on the aileron hinge 
bracket and the part number (P/N) called out in the AD. We are issuing 
this AD to correct the unsafe condition on these products.

DATES: This AD is effective May 9, 2013.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of a certain publication listed in the AD as of May 9, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Discussion

    We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR 
part 39 to revise AD 2004-21-08, amendment 39-13828 (69 FR 62396, 
October 26, 2004). That AD applies to the specified products. The NPRM 
published in the Federal Register on January 8, 2013 (78 FR 1155). That 
NPRM proposed to retain the actions of AD 2004-21-08 while requiring 
future compliance following a revised service bulletin that clarifies 
the casting numbers and part numbers to be inspected.

Comments

    We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing 
this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM (78 FR 1155, January 8, 
2013) or on the determination of the cost to the public.

Conclusion

    We reviewed the relevant data and determined that air safety and 
the public interest require adopting the AD as proposed. We have 
determined that these minor changes:
     Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the 
NPRM (78 FR 1155, January 8, 2013) for correcting the unsafe condition; 
and
     Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was 
already proposed in the NPRM (78 FR 1155, January 8, 2013).

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this AD affects 643 airplanes of U.S. registry.
    We estimate the following costs to comply with this AD:

                                                                     Estimated Costs

    The new requirements of this AD add no additional economic burden.
    We estimate the following costs to do any necessary replacements 
that would be required based on the results of the inspection. We have 
no way of determining the number of aircraft that might need these 
replacements:

    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),
    (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.

List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39

    Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by 
reference, Safety.

Adoption of the Amendment

    Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the 
Administrator, the FAA amends 14 CFR part 39 as follows:

PART 39--AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES

0
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]

0
2. The FAA amends Sec.  39.13 by removing Amendment 39-13828 (69 FR 
62396, October 26, 2004), and adding the following new AD:

2004-21-08 R1 Cessna Aircraft Company: Amendment 39-17400; Docket 
No. FAA-2012-18033; Directorate Identifier 2004-CE-16-AD.

(a) Effective Date

    This AD is effective May 9, 2013.

(b) Affected ADs

    This AD revises AD 2004-21-08, Amendment 39-13828, (69 FR 62396, 
October 26, 2004).

(c) Applicability

    This AD affects Models 190, 195 (L-126A,B,C), 195A, and 195B 
airplanes, all serial numbers, that are:
    (1) certificated in any category; and
    (2) equipped with at least one part number (P/N) 0322709 or P/N 
0322709-1 inboard aileron hinge bracket.

(d) Subject

    Joint Aircraft System Component (JASC)/Air Transport Association 
(ATA) of America Code 2710, Aileron Control System.

(e) Unsafe Condition

    This AD was first prompted by several reports of cracks and 
corrosion found on the magnesium aileron hinge brackets. Magnesium 
is known to be susceptible to corrosion. Since issuance of AD 2004-
21-08 (69 FR 62396, October 26, 2004), reports of confusion between 
the casting number on the aileron hinge bracket and the part number 
called out in the AD have caused us to issue this revision to AD 
2004-21-08. We are issuing this AD to correct the unsafe condition 
on these products.

(f) Compliance

    Comply with this AD at the times specified following the 
procedures in Cessna Aircraft Company Single Engine Service Bulletin 
SEB04-1, Revision 1, dated October 3, 2012, unless already done.

(g) Credit for Actions Accomplished in Accordance With Previous Service 
Information

    This paragraph provides credit for the actions required by 
paragraphs (h), (i), and (j) of this AD, if the actions were 
performed before the effective date of this AD using Cessna Aircraft 
Company Single Engine Service Bulletin SEB04-1, dated April 26, 
2004. All actions performed after May 9, 2013 (the effective date of 
this AD) will be required following Cessna Aircraft Company Single 
Engine Service Bulletin SEB04-1, Revision 1, dated October 3, 2012.

(h) Inspect Each P/N 0322709 and P/N 0322709-1 Inboard Aileron Hinge 
Bracket or Any Other Bracket Made From Magnesium for Cracks or 
Corrosion

    Within the next 100 hours time-in-service (TIS) after November 
30, 2004 (the effective date retained from AD 2004-21-08, Amendment 
39-13828 (69 FR 62396, October 26, 2004)), and repetitively 
thereafter at intervals not to exceed 100 hours TIS until each 
bracket is replaced with aluminum, inspect each P/N 0322709 and P/N 
0322709-1 inboard aileron hinge bracket or any other bracket made 
from magnesium for cracks or corrosion.

(i) Replace Any Cracked or Corroded Inboard Aileron Hinge Bracket

    Before further flight after any inspection where any cracked or 
corroded bracket is found, replace any cracked or corroded inboard 
aileron hinge.
    (1) If replacement is with an FAA-approved bracket made from 
magnesium, do the 100-hour TIS interval repetitive inspections as 
required in paragraph (h) of this AD.
    (2) If replacement is with an FAA-approved bracket that is made 
from aluminum, then no further inspections are necessary. These can 
be Cessna parts or non-Cessna parts.

(j) Terminating Action for the Repetitive Inspections

    (1) As terminating action for the repetitive inspections, you 
may replace all inboard aileron hinge brackets with FAA-approved 
brackets that are made from aluminum (as specified in paragraph 
(i)(2) of this AD) regardless if any corrosion or crack is found.
    (2) You may do this replacement at any time, but you must 
replace any corroded or cracked bracket before further flight after 
the applicable inspection where any corrosion or crack is found.

(k) Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs)

    (1) The Manager, Wichita Aircraft Certification Office (ACO), 
FAA, has the

[[Page 20229]]

authority to approve AMOCs for this AD, if requested using the 
procedures found in 14 CFR 39.19. In accordance with 14 CFR 39.19, 
send your request to your principal inspector or local Flight 
Standards District Office, as appropriate. If sending information 
directly to the manager of the ACO, send it to the attention of the 
person identified in the Related Information section of this AD.
    (2) Before using any approved AMOC, notify your appropriate 
principal inspector, or lacking a principal inspector, the manager 
of the local flight standards district office/certificate holding 
district office.
    (3) All AMOCs approved for AD 2004-21-08 (69 FR 62396, October
