Airplanes Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of Transportation (DOT). ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: We are superseding airworthiness directive (AD) 2010–11– 02 for all Gulfstream Aerospace LP (Type Certificate Previously Held by Israel Aircraft Industries, Ltd.) Model Gulfstream 100 airplanes, and Model Astra SPX and 1125 Westwind Astra airplanes. AD 2010–11–02 required amending the airplane flight manuals (AFMs) to include additional procedures for verifying complete closure and locking of the main entry door (MED). AD 2010–11–02 also required modifying the warning and caution lights panel (WACLP), changing the WACLP and MED wiring, changing the wiring harness connecting the MED to the WACLP, and revising the log of modification of the AFM if necessary. This new AD revises the compliance time and removes an airplane from the applicability. This AD was prompted by a report of a MED opening in flight on an unmodified airplane. We are issuing this AD to prevent incomplete closure of the MED, which may result in the door opening in flight and possible separation of the door, causing damage to the airplane structure and left engine by flying debris and objects. DATES: This AD becomes effective September 10, 2013. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of a certain publication listed in this AD as of September 10, 2013. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain other publications listed in this AD as of June 25, 2010 (75 FR 28485, May 21, 2010). ADDRESSES: You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at http:// www.regulations.gov or in person at the U.S. Department of Transportation, Docket Operations, M–30, West Building Ground Floor, Room W12–140, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., Washington, DC. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with RULES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:14 Aug 05, 2013 Jkt 229001 Tom Stafford, Aerospace Engineer, International Branch, ANM–116, Transport Airplane Directorate, FAA, 1601 Lind Avenue SW., Renton, WA 98057–3356; telephone (425) 227–1622; fax (425) 227–1149. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: 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. The NPRM was published in the Federal Register on February 26, 2013 (78 FR 12995), and proposed to supersede AD 2010–11–02, Amendment 39–16307 (75 FR 28485, May 21, 2010), which superseded AD 2007–03–05, Amendment 39–14916 (72 FR 4414, January 31, 2007). The NPRM proposed to correct an unsafe condition for the specified products. The Civil Aviation Authority of Israel (CAAI), which is the aviation authority for Israel, has issued Israeli Airworthiness Directive 31–06– 11–05R1, dated May 18, 2011 (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: To increase pilots’ awareness to the possibility of incomplete closure of the Main Entry Door (MED) by the following means: 1. Splitting the common caution light CABIN DOOR signaling both MED Improper Closure and MED Inflatable Seal Failure into two separate lights: CABIN DOOR and CABIN DOOR SEAL. 2. Converting the separated CABIN DOOR Caution light into a Warning light by changing its color to red. NOTE: Airplane Flight Manuals (AFM’S) refer to these changes as MOD G1–20052. Incomplete closure of the MED may be followed by in-flight opening and possible separation of the door. As a result, the MED, the adjacent fuselage structure and other parts of the aircraft may be damaged due to opening forces and landing impact. Damage to the aircraft structure and to the left engine by flying debris and objects may also occur. * * * * * This AD retains the actions required by AD 2010–11–02, Amendment 39– 16307 (75 FR 28485, May 21, 2010). This AD limits the existing compliance time. This AD also removes the airplane having serial number (S/N) 158 from the applicability because the modification was done in production. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 received no comments on the NPRM (78 FR 12995, February 26, 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 this AD as proposed except for minor editorial changes. We have determined that these minor changes: • Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the NPRM (78 FR 12995, February 26, 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 12995, February 26, 2013). Costs of Compliance The new requirements of this AD add no additional economic burden. The current costs for this AD are repeated for the convenience of affected operators, as follows: We estimate that this AD will affect about 160 products of U.S. registry. The actions that were required by AD 2010–11–02, Amendment 39–16307 (75 FR 28485, May 21, 2010), and retained in this AD take about 60 work-hours per product, at an average labor rate of $85 per work-hour. Required parts cost about $600 per product. Based on these figures, the estimated cost of the actions required by this AD is $5,700 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 AD will not have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. This AD will not have a substantial direct effect on E:\FR\FM\06AUR1.SGM 06AUR1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 151 / Tuesday, August 6, 2013 / Rules and Regulations 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. We prepared a regulatory evaluation of the estimated costs to comply with this AD and placed it in the AD docket. Examining the AD Docket You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at http:// www.regulations.gov; or in person at the Docket Operations office between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. The AD docket contains this AD, the regulatory evaluation, any comments received, and other information.

Airworthiness Directives; Gulfstream Aerospace LP (Type 
Certificate Previously Held by Israel Aircraft Industries, Ltd.) 
Airplanes

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

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: We are superseding airworthiness directive (AD) 2010-11-02 for 
all Gulfstream Aerospace LP (Type Certificate Previously Held by Israel 
Aircraft Industries, Ltd.) Model Gulfstream 100 airplanes, and Model 
Astra SPX and 1125 Westwind Astra airplanes. AD 2010-11-02 required 
amending the airplane flight manuals (AFMs) to include additional 
procedures for verifying complete closure and locking of the main entry 
door (MED). AD 2010-11-02 also required modifying the warning and 
caution lights panel (WACLP), changing the WACLP and MED wiring, 
changing the wiring harness connecting the MED to the WACLP, and 
revising the log of modification of the AFM if necessary. This new AD 
revises the compliance time and removes an airplane from the 
applicability. This AD was prompted by a report of a MED opening in 
flight on an unmodified airplane. We are issuing this AD to prevent 
incomplete closure of the MED, which may result in the door opening in 
flight and possible separation of the door, causing damage to the 
airplane structure and left engine by flying debris and objects.

DATES: This AD becomes effective September 10, 2013.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of a certain publication listed in this AD as of September 
10, 2013.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of certain other publications listed in this AD as of June

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. 
The NPRM was published in the Federal Register on February 26, 2013 (78 
FR 12995), and proposed to supersede AD 2010-11-02, Amendment 39-16307 
(75 FR 28485, May 21, 2010), which superseded AD 2007-03-05, Amendment 
39-14916 (72 FR 4414, January 31, 2007). The NPRM proposed to correct 
an unsafe condition for the specified products. The Civil Aviation 
Authority of Israel (CAAI), which is the aviation authority for Israel, 
has issued Israeli Airworthiness Directive 31-06-11-05R1, dated May 18, 
2011 (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:

    To increase pilots' awareness to the possibility of incomplete 
closure of the Main Entry Door (MED) by the following means:
    1. Splitting the common caution light CABIN DOOR signaling both 
MED Improper Closure and MED Inflatable Seal Failure into two 
separate lights: CABIN DOOR and CABIN DOOR SEAL.
    2. Converting the separated CABIN DOOR Caution light into a 
Warning light by changing its color to red.
    NOTE: Airplane Flight Manuals (AFM'S) refer to these changes as 
MOD G1-20052.
    Incomplete closure of the MED may be followed by in-flight 
opening and possible separation of the door. As a result, the MED, 
the adjacent fuselage structure and other parts of the aircraft may 
be damaged due to opening forces and landing impact.
    Damage to the aircraft structure and to the left engine by 
flying debris and objects may also occur.
* * * * *

    This AD retains the actions required by AD 2010-11-02, Amendment 
39-16307 (75 FR 28485, May 21, 2010). This AD limits the existing 
compliance time. This AD also removes the airplane having serial number 
(S/N) 158 from the applicability because the modification was done in 
production. 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 12995, February 26, 
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 this AD as proposed except for 
minor editorial changes. We have determined that these minor changes:
     Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the 
NPRM (78 FR 12995, February 26, 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 12995, February 26, 2013).

Costs of Compliance

    The new requirements of this AD add no additional economic burden. 
The current costs for this AD are repeated for the convenience of 
affected operators, as follows:
    We estimate that this AD will affect about 160 products of U.S. 
registry.
    The actions that were required by AD 2010-11-02, Amendment 39-16307 
(75 FR 28485, May 21, 2010), and retained in this AD take about 60 
work-hours per product, at an average labor rate of $85 per work-hour. 
Required parts cost about $600 per product. Based on these figures, the 
estimated cost of the actions required by this AD is $5,700 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 AD will not have federalism implications 
under Executive Order 13132. This AD will not have a substantial direct 
effect on

[[Page 47547]]

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.
    We prepared a regulatory evaluation of the estimated costs to 
comply with this AD and placed it in the AD docket.

    You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov; or in person at the Docket Operations office 
between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal

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 airworthiness directive (AD) 
2010-11-02, Amendment 39-16307 (75 FR 28485, May 21, 2010), and adding 
the following new AD:

2013-14-10 Gulfstream Aerospace LP (Type Certificate Previously Held 
by Israel Aircraft Industries, Ltd.): Amendment 39-17515. Docket No. 
FAA-2013-0093; Directorate Identifier 2011-NM-109-AD.

(a) Effective Date

    This airworthiness directive (AD) becomes effective September 
10, 2013.

(b) Affected ADs

    This AD supersedes AD 2010-11-02, Amendment 39-16307 (75 FR 
28485, May 21, 2010).

(c) Applicability

    This AD applies to Gulfstream Aerospace LP (Type Certificate 
previously held by Israel Aircraft Industries, Ltd.) Model 
Gulfstream 100 airplanes, and Model Astra SPX and 1125 Westwind 
Astra airplanes; certificated in any category; all serial numbers 
except serial number 158.

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 31: Indicating/
Recording Systems.

(e) Reason

    This AD was prompted by a report of a main entry door (MED) 
opening in flight on an unmodified airplane. We are issuing this AD 
to prevent incomplete closure of the main entry door, which may 
result in the door opening in flight and possible separation of the 
door, causing damage to the airplane structure and left engine by 
flying debris and objects.

(f) Compliance

    You are responsible for having the actions required by this AD 
performed within the compliance times specified, unless the actions 
have already been done.

(g) Retained Revisions to Airplane Flight Manuals

    This paragraph restates the requirements of paragraph (f) of AD 
2010-11-02, Amendment 39-16307 (75 FR 28485, May 21, 2010). Within 
10 days after February 15, 2007 (the effective date of AD 2007-03-
05, Amendment 39-14916 (72 FR 4414, January 31, 2007)), amend 
Section IV, Normal Procedures, of Gulfstream airplane flight manuals 
(AFMs) Model 1125 Astra, 25W-1001-1; Model Astra SPX, SPX-1001-1; 
and Model G100, G100-1001-1; as applicable; to include the language 
specified in figure 1 to paragraph (g) of this AD. Insertion of 
copies of figure 1 to paragraph (g) of this AD at the appropriate 
places of the AFMs is acceptable. The actions required by this 
paragraph may be accomplished by a holder of a Private Pilot's 
License.
