Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 126 / Tuesday, July 1, 2014 / Rules and Regulations reworked in accordance with RR Service Bulletin (SB) No. RB.211–72–G604, dated March 18, 2013. (d) Reason This AD was prompted by the identification by RR of limitations in the drawing definition for the Trent 800 lowpressure (LP) turbine bearing support and exhaust case assembly, which resulted in thin-wall section parts being delivered into service. We are issuing this AD to prevent failure of the LP turbine bearing support and exhaust case assembly, which could lead to engine separation and damage to the airplane. (e) Actions and Compliance Comply with this AD within the compliance times specified, unless already done. (1) For engines that have an LP turbine bearing support and exhaust case assembly identified by part number (P/N) and serial number (S/N) in Table 1 to paragraph (e) of this AD, installed, at the next engine shop visit after the effective date of this AD, but not later than June 30, 2017, replace the assembly with one that is eligible for installation. (2) For engines with an LP turbine bearing support and exhaust case assembly not identified by P/N and S/N in Table 1 to paragraph (e) of this AD, installed, at the next piece-part exposure of the LP turbine bearing support and exhaust case assembly after the effective date of AD: (i) Inspect the hub to conical panel weld line thickness using paragraphs 3.B.(3)(a) through 3.B.(3)(d)(iii) of RR Alert Service Bulletin (ASB) No. RB.211–72–AG644, dated April 30, 2013; and (ii) Inspect the hub to conical panel flange thickness using paragraphs 3.B.(4)(a) through 3.B.(4)(c)(v) of RR ASB No. RB.211–72– AG644, dated April 30, 2013. (iii) If the LP turbine bearing support and exhaust case assembly does not pass the inspections required by paragraphs (e)(2)(i) and (e)(2)(ii) of this AD, replace the LP turbine bearing support and exhaust case assembly with one that is eligible for installation.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2007–10– 16 for all British Aerospace Regional Aircraft Jetstream Model 3201 airplanes. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued 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 the need to incorporate revisions to the Airworthiness Limitations section of the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness. We are issuing this AD to require actions to address the unsafe condition on these products. DATES: This AD is effective August 5, 2014. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of a certain publication listed in the AD as of August 5, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with RULES We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 to add an AD that would apply to all British Aerospace Regional Aircraft Jetstream Model 3201 airplanes. That NPRM was published in the Federal Register on April 14, 2014 (79 FR 20832), and proposed to supersede AD 2007–10–16, Amendment 39–15057 (72 FR 27953, May 18, 2007). The NPRM proposed to correct an unsafe condition for the specified products and was based on mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country. The MCAI states: The Jetstream Series 3200 Aircraft Maintenance Manual (AMM), includes Chapter 05–10–05 ‘‘Airworthiness Limitations, Description and Operation’’. The maintenance tasks and limitations contained in this chapter have been identified as mandatory actions for continued airworthiness and EASA issued AD 2007– 0074 to require operators to comply with those instructions. Since that AD was issued, BAE Systems (Operations) Ltd amended Jetstream Series 3200 AMM Chapter 05–10–05 to introduce life limitations for the main landing gear radius rod mounting shaft assemblies and to incorporate wing structure inspections previously introduced through BAE Systems (Operations) Ltd Service Bulletin (SB) SB 51– JA020940. In addition, a new table was introduced to provide extended fatigue life limitations for structural items for aeroplanes entered into a life extension programme. Reference to BAE Systems (Operations) Ltd SB 32–JA981042 was updated from Revision 7 to Revision 8 to reflect increased life limits of the nose landing gear. Failure to comply with the new and more restrictive instructions could result in an unsafe condition. For the reasons described above, this EASA AD retains the requirements of EASA AD 2007–0074, which is superseded, and requires implementation of the maintenance requirements and/or airworthiness VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:01 Jun 30, 2014 Jkt 232001 limitations as specified in Chapter 05–10–05 of the Jetstream Series 3200 AMM at Revision 29. The MCAI can be found in the AD docket on the Internet at http:// www.regulations.gov/ #!documentDetail;D=FAA-2014-02410002. Comments We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM (79 FR 20832, April 14, 2014) or on the determination of the cost to the public. Conclusion We reviewed the relevant data and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting the 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 (79 FR 20832, April 14, 2014) for correcting the unsafe condition; and • Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was already proposed in the NPRM (79 FR 20832, April 14, 2014). Costs of Compliance We estimate that this AD will affect 14 products of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it will take about 1 workhour per product to comply with the basic requirements of this AD of inserting the document into the Airworthiness Limitations section of the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness. The average labor rate is $85 per work-hour. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this AD on U.S. operators to be $1,190, or $85 per product. We have no way of determining the cost to replace the life limited parts and to do the applicable maintenance tasks on each airplane. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 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 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Discussion

    We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR 
part 39 to add an AD that would apply to all British Aerospace Regional 
Aircraft Jetstream Model 3201 airplanes. That NPRM was published in the 
Federal Register on April 14, 2014 (79 FR 20832), and proposed to 
supersede AD 2007-10-16, Amendment 39-15057 (72 FR 27953, May 18, 
2007).
    The NPRM proposed to correct an unsafe condition for the specified 
products and was based on mandatory continuing airworthiness 
information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another 
country. The MCAI states:

    The Jetstream Series 3200 Aircraft Maintenance Manual (AMM), 
includes Chapter 05-10-05 ``Airworthiness Limitations, Description 
and Operation''. The maintenance tasks and limitations contained in 
this chapter have been identified as mandatory actions for continued 
airworthiness and EASA issued AD 2007-0074 to require operators to 
comply with those instructions.
    Since that AD was issued, BAE Systems (Operations) Ltd amended 
Jetstream Series 3200 AMM Chapter 05-10-05 to introduce life 
limitations for the main landing gear radius rod mounting shaft 
assemblies and to incorporate wing structure inspections previously 
introduced through BAE Systems (Operations) Ltd Service Bulletin 
(SB) SB 51-JA020940. In addition, a new table was introduced to 
provide extended fatigue life limitations for structural items for 
aeroplanes entered into a life extension programme. Reference to BAE 
Systems (Operations) Ltd SB 32-JA981042 was updated from Revision 7 
to Revision 8 to reflect increased life limits of the nose landing 
gear.
    Failure to comply with the new and more restrictive instructions 
could result in an unsafe condition.
    For the reasons described above, this EASA AD retains the 
requirements of EASA AD 2007-0074, which is superseded, and requires 
implementation of the maintenance requirements and/or airworthiness 
limitations as specified in Chapter 05-10-05 of the Jetstream Series 
3200 AMM at Revision 29.

The MCAI can be found in the AD docket on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=FAA-2014-0241-0002.

Comments

    We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing 
this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM (79 FR 20832, April 14, 
2014) or on the determination of the cost to the public.

Conclusion

    We reviewed the relevant data and determined that air safety and 
the public interest require adopting the 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 (79 FR 20832, April 14, 2014) for correcting the unsafe condition; 
and
     Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was 
already proposed in the NPRM (79 FR 20832, April 14, 2014).

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this AD will affect 14 products of U.S. registry. 
We also estimate that it will take about 1 work-hour per product to 
comply with the basic requirements of this AD of inserting the document 
into the Airworthiness Limitations section of the Instructions for 
Continued Airworthiness. The average labor rate is $85 per work-hour.
    Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this AD on U.S. 
operators to be $1,190, or $85 per product.
    We have no way of determining the cost to replace the life limited 
parts and to do the applicable maintenance tasks on each airplane.

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 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 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.

2. The FAA amends Sec.  39.13 by removing Amendment 39-15057 (72 FR 
27953, May 18, 2007), and adding the following new AD:

2014-13-05 British Aerospace Regional Aircraft: Amendment 39-17880; 
Docket No. FAA-2014-0241; Directorate Identifier 2014-CE-008-AD.

(a) Effective Date

    This airworthiness directive (AD) becomes effective August 5, 
2014.

(b) Affected ADs

    This AD supersedes AD 2007-10-16, Amendment 39-15057 (72 FR 
27953, May 18, 2007).

(c) Applicability

    This AD applies to British Aerospace Regional Aircraft Jetstream 
Model 3201 airplanes, all serial numbers, certificated in any 
category.

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association of America (ATA) Code 5: Time Limits.

(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 the need to 
incorporate revisions to the Airworthiness Limitations section of 
the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness (ICA). We are issuing 
this AD to enforce compliance with these requirements in order to 
maintain airworthiness.

(f) Actions and Compliance

    Unless already done, do the actions in paragraphs (f)(1) and 
(f)(2) of this AD:
    (1) As of August 5, 2014 (the effective date of this AD), 
replace each component before exceeding the applicable life limit 
and complete all applicable maintenance tasks within the thresholds 
and intervals as specified in Chapter 05-10-05, Airworthiness 
Limitations, of the British Aerospace Jetstream 3200 Series Aircraft 
Maintenance Manual, Revision, 29, dated December 15, 2012.
    (2) You may comply with the requirements in paragraph (f)(1) of 
this AD by incorporating British Aerospace Jetstream 3200 Series 
Aircraft Maintenance Manual, Revision 29, Airworthiness Limitations, 
Chapter 05-10-05, dated December 15, 2012, into the Airworthiness 
Limitations section of your ICA and complying with that program.

 (g) Other FAA AD Provisions

    The following provisions also apply to this AD:
    (1) Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs): The Manager, 
Standards Office, FAA, has the authority to approve AMOCs for this 
AD, if requested using the procedures found in 14 CFR 39.19. Send

taylor.martin@faa.gov. Before using any approved AMOC on any 
airplane to which the AMOC applies, notify your appropriate 
principal inspector (PI) in the FAA Flight Standards District Office 
(FSDO), or lacking a PI, your local FSDO.
    (2) Airworthy Product: For any requirement in this AD to obtain 
corrective actions from a manufacturer or other source, use these 
actions if they are FAA-approved. Corrective actions are considered 
FAA-approved if they are approved by the State of Design Authority 
(or their delegated agent). You are required to assure the product 
is airworthy before it is returned to service.
