ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). AGENCY: We propose to supersede airworthiness directive (AD) 2011–17– 08, which applies to all Airbus Model A330–200 series airplanes, Model A330–200 Freighter series airplanes, and Model A330–300 series airplanes. AD 2011–17–08 currently requires revising the maintenance program by incorporating certain Airworthiness Limitation Items (ALIs). Since we issued AD 2011–17–08, Airbus has revised a certain ALI document, which specifies more restrictive instructions and/or airworthiness limitations. This proposed AD would revise the maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new or revised structural inspection requirements. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct fatigue cracking, damage, and corrosion in certain structure, which could result in reduced structural integrity of the airplane. DATES: We must receive comments on this proposed AD by May 23, 2014. ADDRESSES: You may send comments by any of the following methods: • Federal eRulemaking Portal: Go to http://www.regulations.gov.

Send your comments to an address listed under the ADDRESSES section. Include ‘‘Docket No. FAA–2014–0190; Directorate Identifier 2012–NM–188–AD’’ at the beginning of your comments. We specifically invite comments on the overall regulatory, economic, environmental, and energy aspects of this proposed AD. We will consider all comments received by the closing date and may amend this proposed AD based on those comments. PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 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 proposed AD. Discussion On August 2, 2011, we issued AD 2011–17–08, Amendment 39–16772 (76 FR 53303, August 26, 2011), which superseded AD 2006–09–07, Amendment 39–14577 (71 FR 25919, May 3, 2006). AD 2011–17–08 required actions intended to address an unsafe condition on the products listed above. Since we issued AD 2011–17–08, Amendment 39–16772 (76 FR 53303, August 26, 2011), the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the European Community, has issued EASA Airworthiness Directive 2012–0211, dated October 12, 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: The airworthiness limitations are currently defined and published in the Airbus A330 Airworthiness Limitations Section (ALS). The airworthiness limitations applicable to the Damage Tolerant Airworthiness Limitation Items (DT ALI) are currently specified in Airbus A330 ALI, Airbus Document reference AI/SE–M4/95A.0089/97, which is approved by EASA and referenced in Airbus ALS Part 2. Issue 19 of the Airbus A330 ALI Document introduces more restrictive maintenance requirements and/or airworthiness limitations. Failure to comply with the relevant instructions could result in an unsafe condition. For the reasons described above, this [EASA] AD retains the requirements of EASA AD 2010–0174 [http://ad.easa.europa.eu/ blob/easa_ad_2010_0174_superseded.pdf/ AD_2010–0174_1] [which corresponds to FAA AD 2011–17–08, Amendment 39–16772 (76 FR 53303, August 26, 2011)], which is superseded, and requires the implementation of the new or more restrictive maintenance instructions and/or airworthiness limitations as specified in Airbus A330 ALI Document reference AI/SE–M4/95A.0089/97 issue 19. The unsafe condition is fatigue cracking, damage, and corrosion in certain structure, which could result in reduced structural integrity of the airplane. You may examine the MCAI in the AD docket on the Internet at http:// www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating it in Docket No. FAA– 2014–0190.
