SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion On July 8, 2010, at 75 FR 39192, the Federal Register published our notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM), which proposed to amend 14 CFR part 39 to include an AD that would apply to Arrow Falcon Exporters, Inc. (previously Utah State University); Firefly Aviation Helicopter Services (previously Erickson Air-Crane Co.); California Department of Forestry; Garlick Helicopters, Inc.; Global Helicopter Technology, Inc.; Hagglund Helicopters, LLC (previously Western International Aviation, Inc.); International Helicopters, Inc.; Precision Helicopters, LLC; Robinson Air Crane, Inc.; San Joaquin Helicopters (previously Hawkins and Powers Aviation, Inc.); S.M.&T. Aircraft (previously US Helicopters, Inc., UNC Helicopter, Inc., Southern Aero Corporation, and Wilco Aviation); Smith Helicopters; Southern Helicopter, Inc.; Southwest Florida Aviation International, Inc. (previously Jamie R. Hill and Southwest Florida Aviation); Tamarack Helicopters, Inc. (previously Ranger Helicopter Services, Inc.); US Helicopter, Inc. (previously UNC Helicopter, Inc.); West Coast Fabrication; and Williams Helicopter Corporation (previously Scott Paper Co.) Model HH–1K, TH–1F, TH–1L, UH–1A, UH–1B, UH–1E, UH–1F, UH–1H, UH– 1L, and UH–1P Helicopters; and Southwest Florida Aviation Model UH– 1B (SW204 and SW204HP) and UH–1H (SW205) Helicopters with certain grips installed. The NPRM proposed to require creating a component history card or equivalent record for each grip; determining and recording the total hours TIS for each grip; visually inspecting the upper and lower tangs of the grip for a crack; inspecting the grip buffer pads for delamination and if delamination is present, inspecting the grip surface for corrosion or other damage; inspecting the grip for a crack using UT and fluorescent penetrant inspection methods; and establishing a retirement life for certain grips. The NPRM was prompted by reports of three in-flight failures of grips, P/N 204–011– 121–009 and 204–011–121–121, installed on Bell Model 212 helicopters. The failures resulted from cracks originating in the lower blade bolt lug. The cracking was attributed to subsurface fatigue, corrosion and mechanical damage. Grips with these same P/Ns are eligible for installation on certain restricted category helicopters. PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Grips, P/N 204–044–121–005 and 204– 044–121–113, are also affected if they were ever installed on a Model 205B or UH–1N helicopter. The proposed requirements were intended to prevent failure of the grip, separation of a main rotor blade, and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter. Comments We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD, but we did not receive any comments on the NPRM (75 FR 39192, July 8, 2010). FAA’s Determination We have reviewed the relevant information and determined that an unsafe condition exists and is likely to exist or develop on other products of these same type designs and that air safety and the public interest require adopting the AD requirements as proposed except for we are incorporating the figure by reference instead of including it in our AD and other minor changes to meet current publication requirements. These changes are consistent with the intent of the proposals in the NPRM (75 FR 39192, July 8, 2010) and will not increase the economic burden on any operator nor increase the scope of the AD. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this AD will affect 20 helicopters of U.S. registry and that labor costs will average $85 per workhour. Based on these estimates, we expect the following costs: • Creating new component history cards or the equivalent will require two work-hours for a labor cost of $170 per helicopter, $3,400 for the U.S. fleet. • Maintaining records will require five work-hours per year for a labor cost of $425. • Conducting 24 visual inspections using a magnifying glass will require 12 work-hours per year for a labor cost of $1,020. • 1⁄2 of a buffer pad inspection: 1.5 hours per year for a labor cost of $128. • 1⁄4 of a fluorescent penetrant inspection: .5 work hour per year for a labor cost of $43. • 4 UT inspections: 4 work hours per year for a labor cost of $340. • Removing and replacing a grip set will require 20 work hours per year. A set of grips will cost $37,590, for total cost of $39,290 per helicopter. 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 E:\FR\FM\06AUR1.SGM 06AUR1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 151 / Tuesday, August 6, 2013 / Rules and Regulations 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 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 to the extent that it justifies making a regulatory distinction; 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 an economic evaluation of the estimated costs to comply with this AD and placed it in the AD docket.

1B (SW204 and SW204HP) and UH-1H (SW205) Helicopters. This AD requires 
creating a component history card or equivalent record for each main 
rotor grip (grip); determining and recording the total hours time-in-
service (TIS) for each grip; visually inspecting the upper and lower 
tangs of the grip for a crack; inspecting the grip buffer pads for 
delamination and if delamination is present, inspecting the grip 
surface for corrosion or other damage; inspecting the grip for a crack 
using ultrasonic (UT) and fluorescent penetrant inspection methods; and 
establishing a retirement life for certain grips. This AD was prompted 
by three in-flight failures of grips installed on Bell Helicopter 
Textron (Bell) Model 212 helicopters, which resulted from cracks 
originating in the lower main rotor blade bolt lug. The actions are 
intended to prevent failure of the grip, separation of a main rotor 
blade, and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion

    On July 8, 2010, at 75 FR 39192, the Federal Register published our 
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM), which proposed to amend 14 CFR 
part 39 to include an AD that would apply to Arrow Falcon Exporters, 
Inc. (previously Utah State University); Firefly Aviation Helicopter 
Services (previously Erickson Air-Crane Co.); California Department of 
Forestry; Garlick Helicopters, Inc.; Global Helicopter Technology, 
Inc.; Hagglund Helicopters, LLC (previously Western International 
Aviation, Inc.); International Helicopters, Inc.; Precision 
Helicopters, LLC; Robinson Air Crane, Inc.; San Joaquin Helicopters 
(previously Hawkins and Powers Aviation, Inc.); S.M.&T. Aircraft 
(previously US Helicopters, Inc., UNC Helicopter, Inc., Southern Aero 
Corporation, and Wilco Aviation); Smith Helicopters; Southern 
Helicopter, Inc.; Southwest Florida Aviation International, Inc. 
(previously Jamie R. Hill and Southwest Florida Aviation); Tamarack 
Helicopters, Inc. (previously Ranger Helicopter Services, Inc.); US 
Helicopter, Inc. (previously UNC Helicopter, Inc.); West Coast 
Fabrication; and Williams Helicopter Corporation (previously Scott 
Paper Co.) Model HH-1K, TH-1F, TH-1L, UH-1A, UH-1B, UH-1E, UH-1F, UH-
1H, UH-1L, and UH-1P Helicopters; and Southwest Florida Aviation Model 
UH-1B (SW204 and SW204HP) and UH-1H (SW205) Helicopters with certain 
grips installed. The NPRM proposed to require creating a component 
history card or equivalent record for each grip; determining and 
recording the total hours TIS for each grip; visually inspecting the 
upper and lower tangs of the grip for a crack; inspecting the grip 
buffer pads for delamination and if delamination is present, inspecting 
the grip surface for corrosion or other damage; inspecting the grip for 
a crack using UT and fluorescent penetrant inspection methods; and 
establishing a retirement life for certain grips. The NPRM was prompted 
by reports of three in-flight failures of grips, P/N 204-011-121-009 
and 204-011-121-121, installed on Bell Model 212 helicopters. The 
failures resulted from cracks originating in the lower blade bolt lug. 
The cracking was attributed to subsurface fatigue, corrosion and 
mechanical damage. Grips with these same P/Ns are eligible for 
installation on certain restricted category helicopters. Grips, P/N 
204-044-121-005 and 204-044-121-113, are also affected if they were 
ever installed on a Model 205B or UH-1N helicopter. The proposed 
requirements were intended to prevent failure of the grip, separation 
of a main rotor blade, and subsequent loss of control of the 
helicopter.

Comments

    We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing 
this AD, but we did not receive any comments on the NPRM (75 FR 39192, 
July 8, 2010).

FAA's Determination

    We have reviewed the relevant information and determined that an 
unsafe condition exists and is likely to exist or develop on other 
products of these same type designs and that air safety and the public 
interest require adopting the AD requirements as proposed except for we 
are incorporating the figure by reference instead of including it in 
our AD and other minor changes to meet current publication 
requirements. These changes are consistent with the intent of the 
proposals in the NPRM (75 FR 39192, July 8, 2010) and will not increase 
the economic burden on any operator nor increase the scope of the AD.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this AD will affect 20 helicopters of U.S. 
registry and that labor costs will average $85 per work-hour. Based on 
these estimates, we expect the following costs:
     Creating new component history cards or the equivalent 
will require two work-hours for a labor cost of $170 per helicopter, 
$3,400 for the U.S. fleet.
     Maintaining records will require five work-hours per year 
for a labor cost of $425.
     Conducting 24 visual inspections using a magnifying glass 
will require 12 work-hours per year for a labor cost of $1,020.
     \1/2\ of a buffer pad inspection: 1.5 hours per year for a 
labor cost of $128.
     \1/4\ of a fluorescent penetrant inspection: .5 work hour 
per year for a labor cost of $43.
     4 UT inspections: 4 work hours per year for a labor cost 
of $340.
     Removing and replacing a grip set will require 20 work 
hours per year. A set of grips will cost $37,590, for total cost of 
$39,290 per helicopter.

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

[[Page 47533]]

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

    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 to the extent 
that it justifies making a regulatory distinction; 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 an economic evaluation of the estimated costs to comply 
with this AD and placed it in the AD docket.

accomplished prior to that time.

(e) Required Actions

    (1) Within 10 hours time-in-service (TIS), create a component 
history card or equivalent record and determine and record the total 
hours TIS for each grip. If the total hours TIS cannot be determined 
from the helicopter records, assume and record 50 hours TIS for each 
month for which the hours cannot be determined with the grip 
installed on any helicopter. Continue to count and record the hours 
TIS and begin to count and record the number of times the helicopter 
engine(s) are started (engine start/stop cycles).
    (2) Within 10 hours TIS, and then at intervals not to exceed 25 
hours TIS, without removing the main rotor blades:
    (i) Clean the exposed surfaces of the upper and lower tangs of 
each grip with denatured alcohol and wipe dry.
    (ii) Using a 10X or higher magnifying glass, visually inspect 
the exposed surfaces of the upper and lower tangs of each grip for a 
crack. Pay particular attention to the lower surface of each lower 
grip tang from the main rotor blade bolt-bushing flange to the 
leading and trailing edge of each grip tang as depicted in Figure 5-
7, Inspection of Main Rotor Hub Grip (1200 Hours), Revision 9, dated 
August 8, 2008, of Chapter 5, Inspections and Component Overhaul 
Schedule, Revision 11, dated April 30, 2010, of Bell Helicopter 
Textron, Inc. (BHTI), BHT-212-MM-1, Revision 13, dated September 16, 
2010.
    (iii) At the intervals shown in Table 1 to Paragraph (e) of this 
AD, ultrasonic (UT) inspect each grip for a crack in accordance with 
the BHTI Nondestructive Inspection Procedure, Log No. 00-340, 
Revision E, dated April 9, 2002. The UT inspection of the grip must 
be performed by a Nondestructive Testing (NDT) UT Level I Special, 
Level II, or Level III inspector who is qualified under the 
guidelines established by MIL-STD-410E, ATA Specification 105, AIA-
NAS-410, or an FAA-accepted equivalent for qualification standards 
of NDT Inspection/Evaluation Personnel.
