ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). erowe on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS-1 AGENCY: SUMMARY: We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all DASSAULT AVIATION Model FAN JET FALCON, FAN JET FALCON SERIES C, D, E, F, and G airplanes; Model MYSTERE-FALCON 200 airplanes; and Model MYSTERE-FALCON 20–C5, 20– D5, 20–E5, and 20–F5 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of a manufacturing defect in the charge indicator on fire extinguisher bottles. This proposed AD would require repetitive weighing of fire extinguisher bottles having a certain part number, and eventual replacement of those bottles to terminate the repetitive weighing. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct a dormant failure in the fire suppression system, which could result in the inability to put out a fire in an engine, auxiliary power unit, or rear compartment.

Discussion The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical Agent for Member States of the European Community, has issued EASA Airworthiness Directive 2012–0189, dated September 24, 2012 (referred to after this as ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for the specified products. The MCAI states: A manufacturing defect of the charge indicator of fire extinguisher bottles has been reported on Dassault Aviation Fan Jet Falcon ` and Mystere-Falcon 20 series aeroplanes. The results of the investigations concluded that this defect may lead to corrosion of the charge indicator, causing improper PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 29669 indication of loss of pressure inside the bottle. In addition, the Part Numbers (P/N) of the fire extinguishers and batch numbers of the affected charge indicators have been identified. This condition, if not detected and corrected, could constitute a dormant failure that might impact the capability to extinguish a fire, either in an engine or the Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) or the rear compartment, possibly resulting in damage to the aeroplane and injury to the occupants. For the reasons described above, this [EASA] AD requires repetitive weighing of the affected fire extinguishers bottles and, ultimately replacement of the affected bottles with serviceable bottles. In addition, this AD prohibits installation of an affected fire extinguisher bottle. You may obtain further information by examining the MCAI in the AD docket. Relevant Service Information Dassault Aviation has issued the following service information: • Mandatory Service Bulletin F20– 785, dated June 11, 2012 (for Model FAN JET FALCON, FAN JET FALCON SERIES C, D, E, F, and G airplanes; and MYSTERE–FALCON 20–C5, 20–D5, 20– E5, and 20–F5 airplanes); • Mandatory Service Bulletin F200– 131, dated June 11, 2012 (for Model MYSTERE–FALCON 200 airplanes); • Dassault Maintenance Procedure 26–20–3, ‘‘Weighing of Engine Freon Fire Extinguishers,’’ dated October 2009, of Chapter 26 of Book 2 of the Falcon 20 Maintenance Manual (for Model FAN JET FALCON, FAN JET FALCON SERIES C, D, E, F, and G airplanes; and Model MYSTERE– FALCON 20–C5, 20–D5, 20–E5, and 20– F5 airplanes); • Dassault Aviation Maintenance Procedure 26–20–2, ‘‘Removal of Pyrotechnical Cartridge for Check/ Replacement,’’ dated October 2010, of Chapter 26 of Book 2 of the Falcon 20 Maintenance Manual (for Model FAN JET FALCON, FAN JET FALCON SERIES C, D, E, F, and G airplanes; and Model MYSTERE–FALCON 20–C5, 20– D5, 20–E5, and 20–F5 airplanes); • Dassault Aviation Falcon 200 Maintenance Requirement Card 171.0, ‘‘Engine/Rear compartment Extinguisher (14W1–14W2)—Removal/Installation (ATA 26–20–06), dated December 2011, of Chapter 26 of Book 1 of the Falcon 200 Maintenance Manual (for Model MYSTERE–FALCON 200 airplanes); and • Dassault Aviation Falcon 200 Maintenance Requirement Card 171.0, ‘‘Engine/Rear compartment Extinguisher (14W1–14W2)—Check/Replacement of Percussion Cartridge (ATA 26–20–08),’’ dated December 2011, of Chapter 26 of Book 1 of the Falcon 200 Maintenance E:\FR\FM\21MYP1.SGM 21MYP1 29670 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 98 / Tuesday, May 21, 2013 / Proposed Rules Manual (for Model MYSTERE–FALCON 200 airplanes). The actions described in this service information are intended to correct the unsafe condition identified in the MCAI. 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 Based on the service information, we estimate that this proposed AD would affect about 185 products of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it would take about 4 work-hours per product to comply with the basic requirements of this proposed AD. The average labor rate is $85 per work-hour. Required parts would cost about $6,400 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, we estimate the cost of the proposed AD on U.S. operators to be up to $1,246,900, or $6,740 per product. erowe on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS-1 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 13:19 May 20, 2013 Jkt 229001 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.

RIN 2120-AA64


Airworthiness Directives; DASSAULT AVIATION Airplanes

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

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

SUMMARY: We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all 
DASSAULT AVIATION Model FAN JET FALCON, FAN JET FALCON SERIES C, D, E, 
F, and G airplanes; Model MYSTERE-FALCON 200 airplanes; and Model 
MYSTERE-FALCON 20-C5, 20-D5, 20-E5, and 20-F5 airplanes. This proposed 
AD was prompted by reports of a manufacturing defect in the charge 
indicator on fire extinguisher bottles. This proposed AD would require 
repetitive weighing of fire extinguisher bottles having a certain part 
number, and eventual replacement of those bottles to terminate the 
repetitive weighing. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct a 
dormant failure in the fire suppression system, which could result in 
the inability to put out a fire in an engine, auxiliary power unit, or 
rear compartment.

DATES: We must receive comments on this proposed AD by July 5, 2013.

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

Discussion

    The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical 
Agent for Member States of the European Community, has issued EASA 
Airworthiness Directive 2012-0189, dated September 24, 2012 (referred 
to after this as ``the MCAI''), to correct an unsafe condition for the 
specified products. The MCAI states:

    A manufacturing defect of the charge indicator of fire 
extinguisher bottles has been reported on Dassault Aviation Fan Jet 
Falcon and Myst[egrave]re-Falcon 20 series aeroplanes.
    The results of the investigations concluded that this defect may 
lead to corrosion of the charge indicator, causing improper 
indication of loss of pressure inside the bottle. In addition, the 
Part Numbers (P/N) of the fire extinguishers and batch numbers of 
the affected charge indicators have been identified.
    This condition, if not detected and corrected, could constitute 
a dormant failure that might impact the capability to extinguish a 
fire, either in an engine or the Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) or the 
rear compartment, possibly resulting in damage to the aeroplane and 
injury to the occupants.
    For the reasons described above, this [EASA] AD requires 
repetitive weighing of the affected fire extinguishers bottles and, 
ultimately replacement of the affected bottles with serviceable 
bottles. In addition, this AD prohibits installation of an affected 
fire extinguisher bottle.

    You may obtain further information by examining the MCAI in the AD 
docket.

Manual (for Model MYSTERE-FALCON 200 airplanes).
    The actions described in this service information are intended to 
correct the unsafe condition identified in the MCAI.

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

    Based on the service information, we estimate that this proposed AD 
would affect about 185 products of U.S. registry. We also estimate that 
it would take about 4 work-hours per product to comply with the basic 
requirements of this proposed AD. The average labor rate is $85 per 
work-hour. Required parts would cost about $6,400 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, we estimate the cost of the proposed AD on U.S. operators to 
be up to $1,246,900, or $6,740 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 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.
