SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 33197 Discussion The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the European Community, has issued AD No. 2013– 0073–E, dated March 21, 2013 (referred to after this as ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for the specified products. The MCAI states: During an inspection on elevator/stabilizer hinges, improper installation of the spherical bearing part number (P/N) SKF GE–10 on the central hinge lever and a crack on the weld length of the horizontal tail/elevator plane hinge assembly have been reported. This condition, if not detected and corrected, could lead to the loss of the main elevator control. To address this potential unsafe condition, Magnaghi Aeronautica issued Service Bulletin (SB–C) n. SB–005–2013–SKY ARROW to inspect the affected areas of the pitch flight control system. For the reasons described above, this AD requires inspection of the spherical bearing and the horizontal tail/elevator plane hinge assembly to detect any crack, signs of corrosion or improper installation, and accomplishment of the applicable corrective actions. The MCAI also requires sending a detailed report of any crack, signs of corrosion, or improper installation found during the required inspections to Magnaghi Aeronautica S.p.A.; requesting an FAA-approved repair scheme; and incorporating the repair . You may obtain further information by examining the MCAI in the AD docket. Relevant Service Information Magnaghi Aeronautica SpA has issued Service Bulletin SB–C n.

We invite you to send any written relevant data, views, or arguments about this AD. Send your comments to an address listed under the ADDRESSES section. Include ‘‘Docket No. FAA–2013–0455; Directorate Identifier 2013–CE–013– AD’’ at the beginning of your comments. We specifically invite comments on the overall regulatory, economic, environmental, and energy aspects of this AD. We will consider all comments received by the closing date and may amend this AD because of those comments. We will post all comments we receive, without change, to http:// www.regulations.gov, including any personal information you provide. We will also post a report summarizing each substantive verbal contact we receive about this AD. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this AD will affect 9 products of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it will take about 2 workhours per product to comply with the basic requirements of this AD. The average labor rate is $85 per work-hour. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of the AD on U.S. operators to be $1,530, or $170 per product. We are unable to estimate the costs to accomplish any necessary repair that will be required based on the results of any required inspection. Magnaghi Aeronautica S.p.A. will evaluate the damage of each affected airplane and develop an appropriate repair scheme. 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:17 Jun 03, 2013 Jkt 229001 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.

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 February 5, 2013 (78 FR 8052). That NPRM proposed to correct an unsafe condition for the specified products. The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the European Community, has issued EASA Airworthiness Directive 2012–0162, dated August 29, 2012 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for the specified products. The MCAI states: Two reports were received concerning Falcon 900 aeroplanes, where chafing between the tail strobe power supply and a hydraulic line was found. In the latest reported occurrence, the chafing damaged the power line and created an electrical arcing which created a pin hole in the hydraulic line, leading to hydraulic fluid leakage. This condition, if not corrected, could jeopardize the aeroplane’s safe flight. To address this potential unsafe condition, Dassault Aviation developed modification (M5741) of the routing of the tail strobe power supply wire, which is available for accomplishment in service through Dassault Service Bulletin (SB) F900–431 or SB F900EX–437, as applicable to aeroplane model. For the reasons described above, this [EASA] AD requires modification of the routing of the tail strobe power supply wire. The unsafe condition is chafing between the tail strobe power supply and a hydraulic line, which could result in hydraulic fluid leakage and possible fire due to arcing, and consequent loss of control of the airplane due to structural failure of the tail. You may obtain further information by examining the MCAI in the AD docket. Comments We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM (78 FR 8052, February 5, 2013) or on the determination of the cost to the public. Conclusion We reviewed the available data 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: E:\FR\FM\04JNR1.SGM 04JNR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Discussion

    The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical 
Agent for the Member States of the European Community, has issued AD 
No. 2013-0073-E, dated March 21, 2013 (referred to after this as ``the 
MCAI''), to correct an unsafe condition for the specified products. The 
MCAI states:

    During an inspection on elevator/stabilizer hinges, improper 
installation of the spherical bearing part number (P/N) SKF GE-10 on 
the central hinge lever and a crack on the weld length of the 
horizontal tail/elevator plane hinge assembly have been reported.
    This condition, if not detected and corrected, could lead to the 
loss of the main elevator control.
    To address this potential unsafe condition, Magnaghi Aeronautica 
issued Service Bulletin (SB-C) n. SB-005-2013-SKY ARROW to inspect 
the affected areas of the pitch flight control system.
    For the reasons described above, this AD requires inspection of 
the spherical bearing and the horizontal tail/elevator plane hinge 
assembly to detect any crack, signs of corrosion or improper 
installation, and accomplishment of the applicable corrective 
actions.

The MCAI also requires sending a detailed report of any crack, signs of 
corrosion, or improper installation found during the required 
inspections to Magnaghi Aeronautica S.p.A.; requesting an FAA-approved 
repair scheme; and incorporating the repair . You may obtain further 
information by examining the MCAI in the AD docket.

Relevant Service Information

    Magnaghi Aeronautica SpA has issued Service Bulletin SB-C n. SB-
005-2013-SKY ARROW, Issue 1, dated March 13, 2013. The actions 
described in this service information are intended to correct the 
unsafe condition identified in the MCAI.

FAA's Determination and Requirements of the 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 this State of Design Authority, they 
have notified us of the unsafe condition described in the MCAI and 
service information referenced above. We are issuing this AD because we 
evaluated all information provided by the State of Design Authority and 
determined the unsafe condition exists and is likely to exist or 
develop on other products of the same type design.

[[Page 33198]]

FAA's Determination of the Effective Date

    An unsafe condition exists that requires the immediate adoption of 
this AD. The FAA has found that the risk to the flying public justifies 
waiving notice and comment prior to adoption of this rule because This 
condition, which, if not corrected, could lead to the loss of the main 
elevator control and result in loss of control. Therefore, we 
determined that notice and opportunity for public comment before 
issuing this AD are impracticable and that good cause exists for making 
this amendment effective in fewer than 30 days.

Comments Invited

    This AD is a final rule that involves requirements affecting flight 
safety, and we did not precede it by notice and opportunity for public 
comment. We invite you to send any written relevant data, views, or 
arguments about this AD. Send your comments to an address listed under 
the ADDRESSES section. Include ``Docket No. FAA-2013-0455; Directorate 
Identifier 2013-CE-013-AD'' at the beginning of your comments. We 
specifically invite comments on the overall regulatory, economic, 
environmental, and energy aspects of this AD. We will consider all 
comments received by the closing date and may amend this AD because of 
those comments.
    We will post all comments we receive, without change, to http://www.regulations.gov, including any personal information you provide. We 
will also post a report summarizing each substantive verbal contact we 
receive about this AD.

    We estimate that this AD will affect 9 products of U.S. registry. 
We also estimate that it will take about 2 work-hours per product to 
comply with the basic requirements of this AD. The average labor rate 
is $85 per work-hour.
    Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of the AD on U.S. 
operators to be $1,530, or $170 per product.
    We are unable to estimate the costs to accomplish any necessary 
repair that will be required based on the results of any required 
inspection. Magnaghi Aeronautica S.p.A. will evaluate the damage of 
each affected airplane and develop an appropriate repair scheme.

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.

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 adding the following new AD:

2013-11-01 Iniziative Industriali Italiane S.p.A.: Amendment 39-
17461; Docket No. FAA-2013-0455; Directorate Identifier 2013-CE-013-
AD.

(a) Effective Date

    This airworthiness directive (AD) becomes effective June 19, 
2013.

(b) Affected ADs

    None.

(c) Applicability

    This AD applies to Iniziative Industriali Italiane S.p.A. Models 
Sky Arrow 650 TC, Sky Arrow 650 TCN, Sky Arrow 650TCS, and Sky Arrow 
650TCNS airplanes, all serial numbers, certificated in any category.

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association of America (ATA) Code 27: Flight 
Controls.

(e) Reason

    This AD was prompted by mandatory continuing airworthiness 
information (MCAI) issued by the aviation authority of another 
country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation 
product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as improper 
installation of the spherical bearing on the central hinge lever and 
a crack on the weld length of the horizontal tail/elevator plane 
hinge assembly. We are issuing this AD to correct this condition, 
which, if not corrected, could lead to the loss of the main elevator 
control and could result in loss of control.

(f) Actions and Compliance

    Unless already done, do the following actions.
    (1) Before further flight after June 19, 2013 (the effective 
date of this AD), and thereafter at intervals not to exceed 25 hours 
time-in-service (TIS), perform detailed visual inspections of the 
horizontal tail/elevator plane hinge assembly part number (P/N) 
R26208/00 following paragraph 4. INSTRUCTIONS of Magnaghi 
Aeronautica SpA Service Bulletin SB-C n. SB-005-2013-SKY ARROW, 
Issue 1, dated March 13, 2013.
    (2) If during any inspection required by paragraph (f)(1) of 
this AD, the spherical bearing is found partially or completely out 
of its seat and/or signs of cracks or corrosion of the hinges, hinge 
levers or hinge brackets are detected, before further flight send a 
detailed report to Magnaghi Aeronautica S.p.A. following paragraph 
4. INSTRUCTIONS of Magnaghi Aeronautica SpA Service Bulletin SB-C n. 
SB-005-2013-SKY ARROW, Issue 1, dated March 13, 2013, to the address 
specified in paragraph (i)(3) of this AD, requesting an FAA-approved 
repair scheme and incorporating the repair.
    (3) As of June 19, 2013 (the effective date of this AD) do not 
install any spherical bearing P/N SKF GE-10 or horizontal tail/
elevator plane hinge assembly P/N R26208/00 on any airplane, unless 
it has passed the inspection following paragraph 4. INSTRUCTIONS of 
Magnaghi Aeronautica SpA Service Bulletin SB-C n. SB-005-2013-SKY 
ARROW, Issue 1, dated March 13, 2013.

(g) Other FAA AD Provisions

    The following provisions also apply to this AD:
    (1) Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs): The Manager, 
Standards Office, FAA, has the authority to approve AMOCs
