Discussion The Japan Civil Aviation Bureau (JCAB), which is the aviation authority for Japan, has issued AD No. TCD– 8396–2014, dated April 21, 2014 (referred to after this as ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for Fuji Heavy Industries, Ltd. Models FA–200– 160, FA–200–180, and FA–200–180AO airplanes and was based on mandatory continuing airworthiness information originated by an aviation authority of another country. The MCAI was issued based on reports of deterioration of brake performance due to seal defects caused by deterioration due to age of the O-rings of the brake master cylinder on the affected airplanes, which could VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:41 May 16, 2014 Jkt 232001 result in reduced or loss of control during ground operations. The MCAI requires repetitive replacement of any O-ring of the brake master cylinders. You may examine the MCAI on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating Docket No. FAA–2014–0311. 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. Relevant Service Information Fuji Heavy Industries, Ltd. has issued Service Bulletin No. 200–016, dated April 17, 2014. The actions described in this service information are intended to correct the unsafe condition identified in the MCAI. Regulatory Findings FAA’s Determination and Requirements of the 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 this State of Design Authority, they have notified us of the unsafe condition described in the MCAI and service information referenced above. We are proposing this AD because we evaluated all information and determined the 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 will affect 3 products 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. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of the proposed AD on U.S. operators to be $255, or $85 per product. In addition, we estimate that any necessary follow-on actions would take about 8 work-hours and require parts costing $10, for a cost of $690 per product. We have no way of determining the number of products that may need these actions. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 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.

Fuji Heavy Industries, Ltd. Models FA-200-160, FA-200-180, and FA-200-
180AO airplanes. This proposed AD results from mandatory continuing 
airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of 
another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an 
aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as 
deterioration of brake performance due to seal defects caused by 
deterioration due to age of the O-rings of the brake master cylinder.

Discussion

    The Japan Civil Aviation Bureau (JCAB), which is the aviation 
authority for Japan, has issued AD No. TCD-8396-2014, dated April 21, 
2014 (referred to after this as ``the MCAI''), to correct an unsafe 
condition for Fuji Heavy Industries, Ltd. Models FA-200-160, FA-200-
180, and FA-200-180AO airplanes and was based on mandatory continuing 
airworthiness information originated by an aviation authority of 
another country. The MCAI was issued based on reports of deterioration 
of brake performance due to seal defects caused by deterioration due to 
age of the O-rings of the brake master cylinder on the affected 
airplanes, which could result in reduced or loss of control during 
ground operations. The MCAI requires repetitive replacement of any O-
ring of the brake master cylinders. You may examine the MCAI on the 
Internet at http://www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating 
Docket No. FAA-2014-0311.

Relevant Service Information

    Fuji Heavy Industries, Ltd. has issued Service Bulletin No. 200-
016, dated April 17, 2014. 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 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 this State of Design Authority, they 
have notified us of the unsafe condition described in the MCAI and 
service information referenced above. We are proposing this AD because 
we evaluated all information and determined the 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 will affect 3 products 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.
    Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of the proposed AD on 
U.S. operators to be $255, or $85 per product.
    In addition, we estimate that any necessary follow-on actions would 
take about 8 work-hours and require parts costing $10, for a cost of 
$690 per product. We have no way of determining the number of products 
that may need these actions.

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.

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association of America (ATA) Code 32: Landing 
Gear.

(e) Reason

    This AD was prompted by mandatory continuing airworthiness 
information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another 
country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation 
product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as deterioration of 
brake performance due to seal defects caused by deterioration due to 
age of the O-rings of the brake master cylinders. We are issuing 
this proposed AD to prevent the deterioration of brake performance, 
which could result in reduced or loss of control during ground 
operations.

(f) Actions and Compliance

    Unless already done, do the following actions required by 
paragraphs (f)(1) through (f)(3) of this AD:
    (1) As of the effective date of this AD, if the brake master 
cylinder O-rings have accumulated more than 1,000 hours time-in-
service (TIS) or 5 years since the last replacement of any O-ring or 
if the replacement date of any O-ring cannot be determined, within 
50 hours TIS after the effective date of this AD or 1 year after the 
effective date of this AD, whichever occurs first, replace any O-
ring following Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd. Service Bulletin No. 200-
016, dated April 17, 2014.
    (2) As of the effective date of this AD, every time the brake 
master cylinder is replaced, inspect the manufacture date on the 
data tag of the brake master cylinder or the last replacement date 
of any O-ring by referring to the airframe logbook.
    (3) During any inspection of the manufacture date of the brake 
master cylinder or the last replacement date of any O-ring as 
required by paragraph (f)(2) of this AD, if it is determined that 
the O-rings have accumulated more than 5 years since the manufacture 
date on the data tag of the brake master cylinder or the last 
replacement date of the brake master cylinder O-rings, or if the 
manufacture date on the data tag on the brake master cylinder and 
the last replacement date of any brake master cylinder O-ring cannot 
be determined, before further flight, replace all brake master 
cylinder O-rings when installed on the airplane following Fuji Heavy 
Industries Ltd. Service Bulletin No. 200-016, dated April 17, 2014.

(g) Other FAA AD Provisions

    The following provisions also apply to this AD:
