The purpose of these notices is to give interested persons an opportunity to participate in the rule making prior to the adoption of the final rules. DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Aviation Administration 14 CFR Part 39 [Docket No. FAA–2013–0472; Directorate Identifier 98–CE–097–AD] RIN 2120–AA64 Airworthiness Directives; PIAGGIO AERO INDUSTRIES S.p.A Airplanes Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of Transportation (DOT). ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM); rescission. AGENCY: We propose to rescind an airworthiness directive (AD) for PIAGGIO AERO INDUSTRIES S.p.A. Model P–180 airplanes. The existing AD resulted from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as partial detachment of the inner protective film of the composite nacelles. Since issuance of that AD, we have determined that the unsafe condition does not exist or is not likely to develop on affected type design airplanes, and therefore the AD should be rescinded. The proposed AD would allow the public the opportunity to comment on the FAA’s determination of the unsafe condition no longer existing before it is officially rescinded. DATES: We must receive comments on this proposed AD by July 15, 2013. ADDRESSES: You may send comments by any of the following methods: • Federal eRulemaking Portal: Go to http://www.regulations.gov.

Discussion On March 18, 1999, we issued AD 99– 07–10, Amendment 39–11095 (64 FR 14824, March 29, 1999). That AD required actions intended to address an unsafe condition on the products listed above. PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 Since we issued AD 99–07–10, Amendment 39–11095 (64 FR 14824, March 29, 1999), the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the European Community, has issued AD Cancellation Notice No.: 2013– 0085–CN, dated April 8, 2013, which cancelled Ente Nazionale per l’Aviazione Civile (ENAC) (the airworthiness authority for Italy) AD No. 98–208, dated June 9, 1998. Italian AD No. 98–208 required the inspections and corrective actions of Piaggio Service Bulletin (Mandatory) No.: SB–80–0101, Original Issue: May 6, 1998. AD 99–07– 10, Amendment 39–11095 (64 FR 14824, March 29, 1999), is the result of mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by ENAC. We have been notified that since 2000, all nacelles for PIAGGIO AERO INDUSTRIES S.p.A Model P–180 airplanes have been manufactured by a different supplier, and no new occurrences of film detachment have been reported on earlier manufactured airplanes. Therefore, nacelle inner panel protective film detachment is no longer considered probable. Consequently, PIAGGIO AERO INDUSTRIES S.p.A. issued Mandatory Service Bulletin No. SB 80–0101, Rev. N. ZZ, dated February 19, 2013, to cancel the previous revision of this service bulletin. FAA’s Determination and Requirements of the Proposed AD We are proposing this AD because we evaluated all information and determined the unsafe condition identified in the existing AD no longer exists and the AD is not necessary. 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 E:\FR\FM\30MYP1.SGM 30MYP1 32364 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 104 / Thursday, May 30, 2013 / Proposed Rules 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.

In accordance with the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (MSA) and the Interjurisdictional Fisheries Act (IFA), NMFS (on behalf of the Secretary of Commerce) proposed regulations that were to govern the requests for determinations of fishery resource disasters as a basis for acquiring potential disaster assistance. The proposed regulations would have established definitions, characteristics of commercial fishery failures, fishery resource disasters, serious disruptions affecting future production, and harm incurred by fishermen. It also established requirements for initiating a review by NMFS, and the administrative process it would follow in response to such requests. The intended result of the proposed procedures and requirements was to clarify and interpret the fishery disaster assistance provisions of the MSA and the IFA through rulemaking and, thereby, ensure consistency and facilitate the processing of requests. On June 16, 2011, NMFS issued an internal policy for determinations of fishery resource disasters as a basis for acquiring potential disaster assistance titled: POLICY Guidance for Disaster Assistance Under Magnuson-Stevens Act 312(a) and Interjurisdictional Fisheries Act 308(b) and 308(d), http:// www.nmfs.noaa.gov/sfa/sf3/ disaster_policy2011.pdf. The purpose of this document is to provide guidance for evaluating requests for fisheries disaster relief under the provisions of section 312(a) and 315 of the MSA and sections 308(b) and 308(d) of the IFA.

Airworthiness Directives; PIAGGIO AERO INDUSTRIES S.p.A Airplanes

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

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM); rescission.

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

SUMMARY: We propose to rescind an airworthiness directive (AD) for 
PIAGGIO AERO INDUSTRIES S.p.A. Model P-180 airplanes. The existing AD 
resulted from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) 
originated by an aviation authority of another country to identify and 
correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes 
the unsafe condition as partial detachment of the inner protective film 
of the composite nacelles. Since issuance of that AD, we have 
determined that the unsafe condition does not exist or is not likely to 
develop on affected type design airplanes, and therefore the AD should 
be rescinded. The proposed AD would allow the public the opportunity to 
comment on the FAA's determination of the unsafe condition no longer 
existing before it is officially rescinded.

DATES: We must receive comments on this proposed AD by July 15, 2013.

Discussion

    On March 18, 1999, we issued AD 99-07-10, Amendment 39-11095 (64 FR 
14824, March 29, 1999). That AD required actions intended to address an 
unsafe condition on the products listed above.
    Since we issued AD 99-07-10, Amendment 39-11095 (64 FR 14824, March 
29, 1999), the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the 
Technical Agent for the Member States of the European Community, has 
issued AD Cancellation Notice No.: 2013-0085-CN, dated April 8, 2013, 
which cancelled Ente Nazionale per l'Aviazione Civile (ENAC) (the 
airworthiness authority for Italy) AD No. 98-208, dated June 9, 1998. 
Italian AD No. 98-208 required the inspections and corrective actions 
of Piaggio Service Bulletin (Mandatory) No.: SB-80-0101, Original 
Issue: May 6, 1998. AD 99-07-10, Amendment 39-11095 (64 FR 14824, March 
29, 1999), is the result of mandatory continuing airworthiness 
information (MCAI) issued by ENAC.
    We have been notified that since 2000, all nacelles for PIAGGIO 
AERO INDUSTRIES S.p.A Model P-180 airplanes have been manufactured by a 
different supplier, and no new occurrences of film detachment have been 
reported on earlier manufactured airplanes. Therefore, nacelle inner 
panel protective film detachment is no longer considered probable. 
Consequently, PIAGGIO AERO INDUSTRIES S.p.A. issued Mandatory Service 
Bulletin No. SB 80-0101, Rev. N. ZZ, dated February 19, 2013, to cancel 
the previous revision of this service bulletin.

FAA's Determination and Requirements of the Proposed AD

    We are proposing this AD because we evaluated all information and 
determined the unsafe condition identified in the existing AD no longer 
exists and the AD is not necessary.

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

[[Page 32364]]

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.

List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39

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

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