Discussion ehiers on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS-1 Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation authority for Canada, has issued Canadian Airworthiness Directive CF–2013–22, dated August 12, 2013 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL– 600–2B16 (CL–604 Variant) airplanes. The MCAI states: There have been several reported incidents where Bombardier Regional Jet aeroplanes experienced in-flight uncommanded rudder movements. Investigation revealed that a failure of the voltage regulator inside the yaw damper actuator could lead to uncommanded yaw movement. If not corrected, this condition could lead to structural failure and the subsequent loss of the aeroplane. VerDate Mar<15>2010 13:55 Apr 18, 2014 Jkt 232001 Since the Challenger 604 aeroplanes have the same system, and can also experience a similar problem of uncommanded yaw movement, Transport Canada is issuing this [Canadian] AD that mandates the introduction of an emergency procedure to the Aeroplane Flight Manual (AFM) to address the above-mentioned unsafe condition. You may examine the MCAI in the AD docket on the Internet at http:// www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating Docket No. FAA–2014– 0250. Relevant Service Information Bombardier, Inc. has issued emergency procedures for the applicable AFMs: • For Model CL–600–2B16 (CL–604 Variant) airplanes having serial numbers (S/Ns) 5301 through 5665 inclusive: Procedure 1.C., Uncommanded Yaw Motion, of Section 03–06, Automatic Flight Control System, of Chapter 3— Emergency Procedures, of the Bombardier Challenger CL–604 AFM, PSP 604–1, Revision 89, dated July 8, 2013; and • For Model CL–600–2B16 (CL–604 Variant) airplanes having S/Ns 5701 and subsequent: Procedure 1.C., Uncommanded Yaw Motion, of Section 03–06, Automatic Flight Control System, of Chapter 3—Emergency Procedures, of the Bombardier Challenger CL–605 AFM, PSP 605–1, Revision 25, dated July 8, 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 This Proposed 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 the State of Design Authority, we have been notified of the unsafe condition described in the MCAI and service information referenced above. We are proposing this AD because we evaluated all pertinent information and determined an unsafe condition exists and is likely to exist or develop on other products of the same type design. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this proposed AD affects 116 airplanes of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it would take about 1 work-hour per product to comply with the basic requirements of this proposed AD. The average labor rate is $85 per work-hour. Required parts would cost about $0 per product. PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this proposed AD on U.S. operators to be $9,860, or $85 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 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. The Proposed Amendment Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the FAA proposes to amend 14 CFR part 39 as follows: E:\FR\FM\21APP1.SGM 21APP1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 76 / Monday, April 21, 2014 / Proposed Rules PART 39—AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES 1.

Discussion

    Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation 
authority for Canada, has issued Canadian Airworthiness Directive CF-
2013-22, dated August 12, 2013 (referred to after this as the Mandatory 
Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ``the MCAI''), to correct an 
unsafe condition for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-2B16 (CL-604 
Variant) airplanes. The MCAI states:

    There have been several reported incidents where Bombardier 
Regional Jet aeroplanes experienced in-flight uncommanded rudder 
movements. Investigation revealed that a failure of the voltage 
regulator inside the yaw damper actuator could lead to uncommanded 
yaw movement. If not corrected, this condition could lead to 
structural failure and the subsequent loss of the aeroplane.
    Since the Challenger 604 aeroplanes have the same system, and 
can also experience a similar problem of uncommanded yaw movement, 
Transport Canada is issuing this [Canadian] AD that mandates the 
introduction of an emergency procedure to the Aeroplane Flight 
Manual (AFM) to address the above-mentioned unsafe condition.

    You may examine the MCAI in the AD docket on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating Docket No. FAA-2014-
0250.

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

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this proposed AD affects 116 airplanes of U.S. 
registry.
    We also estimate that it would take about 1 work-hour per product 
to comply with the basic requirements of this proposed AD. The average 
labor rate is $85 per work-hour. Required parts would cost about $0 per 
product. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this proposed 
AD on U.S. operators to be $9,860, or $85 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 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.
