Airplanes Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT. ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Embraer S.A. Model ERJ 170 airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of ‘‘BLEED 1(2) LEAK’’ messages displayed on the engine indication and crew alert system (EICAS), and indirect damage to components of the electrical wiring interconnection system (EWIS) in the engine pylon area. This AD requires inspecting the EWIS components for damage, and repair if necessary. This AD also requires installing pre-cooler deflectors on the left- and right-hand pylons, and applying silicone sealant. We are issuing this AD to prevent indirect damage to EWIS components near the engine bleed air pre-coolers, which could result in a dual engine roll back to idle and consequent dual engine power loss and reduced controllability of the airplane. DATES: This AD is effective October 2, 2014. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in this AD as of October 2, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 by adding an AD that would apply to certain Embraer S.A. Model ERJ 170 airplanes. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on March 28, 2014 (79 FR 17461). ˆ The Agencia Nacional de Aviacao ¸˜ Civil (ANAC), which is the aviation authority for Brazil, has issued Brazilian Airworthiness Directive 2013–11–01, effective November 4, 2013 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for certain Embraer S.A. Model ERJ 170 airplanes. The MCAI states: This [Brazilian] AD results from reports of ‘‘BLEED 1(2) LEAK’’ messages being displayed on the Engine Indication and Crew Alert system (EICAS) panel, and indirect damages to components of the Electrical Wiring Interconnection System (EWIS) on the engine pilone area, zones 419 and 429, adjacent to the exhaust flange of the engine bleed air precooler. Further investigation has shown that a leakage on the flange of the precooler refrigerating air exhaust duct caused the damage and triggered the message. We are issuing this [Brazilian] AD to prevent EWIS components indirect damage, near to engine PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 bleed air precooler, which could result in a dual engine roll back to idle and the consequent dual engine power loss. Required actions include inspecting the EWIS components adjacent to the left- and right-hand pre-cooler for damage, and repair if necessary; installing pre-cooler deflectors on the left- and right-hand pylons, and applying silicone sealant. You may examine the MCAI in the AD docket on the Internet at http:// www.regulations.gov/ #!docketDetail;D=FAA-2014-0172-0002. Comments We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM (79 FR 17461, March 28, 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 this AD with the changes described previously and minor editorial changes. We have determined that these minor changes: • Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the NPRM (79 FR 17461, March 28, 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 17461, March 28, 2014). We also determined that these changes will not increase the economic burden on any operator or increase the scope of this AD. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this AD affects 181 airplanes of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it takes about 6 work-hours per product to comply with the basic requirements of this AD. The average labor rate is $85 per work-hour. Required parts cost about $366 per product. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of the AD on U.S. operators to be $158,556, or $876 per product. We have received no definitive data that would enable us to provide cost estimates for the on-condition actions specified in this AD. Authority for This Rulemaking Title 49 of the United States Code specifies the FAA’s authority to issue rules on aviation safety. Subtitle I, E:\FR\FM\28AUR1.SGM 28AUR1 51230 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 167 / Thursday, August 28, 2014 / Rules and Regulations 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 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 that this AD: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866, (2) Is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under 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.

The NPRM was prompted by reports that the pintle pins installed on a certain number of airplanes may be incorrectly protected against corrosion. The NPRM proposed to require replacing certain pintle pins on the left- and right-hand main landing gear (MLG) with a serviceable part. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct pintle pins that have been incorrectly corrosionprotected, which could cause the pintle pins to shear under normal load and lead to the collapse of the MLG during take-off or landing. The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the European Community, has issued EASA Airworthiness Directive 2013–0162, dated July 24, 2013 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition all Dassault Aviation Model FALCON 7X airplanes. The MCAI states: Messier-Bugatti-Dowty, the manufacturer of the landing gears of the Falcon 7X aeroplanes, has advised that pintle pins Part Number (P/N) 55–2355007–01 being installed on a certain number of aeroplanes may be incorrectly protected against corrosion. These pins are designed to shear in case of excessive loads on the main landing gears so that structural damage would be contained after a landing gear collapse. The cadmiumcoating inside the bore of suspect pins may not be compliant to the original thickness specifications. Inspection of a few removed parts in service revealed that traces of limited corrosion can be found on an unstressed area of the pins. Messier-Bugatti-Dowty identified a list of potentially affected pintle pins and subsequently, Dassault Aviation identified on which aeroplanes those pintle pins were installed. This condition, if not corrected, may lead to corrosion of the pins and ultimately cause them to shear under normal load. This could result in landing gear collapse during take-off or landing. To address this condition, Dassault Aviation, with the support of MessierBugatti-Dowty, developed Service Bulletin (SB) F7X–182 to provide instructions for removal of potentially affected pintle pins and replacement with serviceable parts. For the reasons described above, this [EASA] AD requires replacement of pintle pins on affected airplanes. This [EASA] AD E:\FR\FM\28AUR1.SGM 28AUR1

Airworthiness Directives; Embraer S.A. Airplanes

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain 
Embraer S.A. Model ERJ 170 airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports 
of ``BLEED 1(2) LEAK'' messages displayed on the engine indication and 
crew alert system (EICAS), and indirect damage to components of the 
electrical wiring interconnection system (EWIS) in the engine pylon 
area. This AD requires inspecting the EWIS components for damage, and 
repair if necessary. This AD also requires installing pre-cooler 
deflectors on the left- and right-hand pylons, and applying silicone 
sealant. We are issuing this AD to prevent indirect damage to EWIS 
components near the engine bleed air pre-coolers, which could result in 
a dual engine roll back to idle and consequent dual engine power loss 
and reduced controllability of the airplane.

DATES: This AD is effective October 2, 2014.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of certain publications listed in this AD as of October 2, 
2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion

    We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR 
part 39 by adding an AD that would apply to certain Embraer S.A. Model 
ERJ 170 airplanes. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on March 
28, 2014 (79 FR 17461).
    The Ag[ecirc]ncia Nacional de Avia[ccedil][atilde]o Civil (ANAC), 
which is the aviation authority for Brazil, has issued Brazilian 
Airworthiness Directive 2013-11-01, effective November 4, 2013 
(referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness 
Information, or ``the MCAI''), to correct an unsafe condition for 
certain Embraer S.A. Model ERJ 170 airplanes. The MCAI states:

    This [Brazilian] AD results from reports of ``BLEED 1(2) LEAK'' 
messages being displayed on the Engine Indication and Crew Alert 
system (EICAS) panel, and indirect damages to components of the 
Electrical Wiring Interconnection System (EWIS) on the engine pilone 
area, zones 419 and 429, adjacent to the exhaust flange of the 
engine bleed air precooler.
    Further investigation has shown that a leakage on the flange of 
the precooler refrigerating air exhaust duct caused the damage and 
triggered the message. We are issuing this [Brazilian] AD to prevent 
EWIS components indirect damage, near to engine bleed air precooler, 
which could result in a dual engine roll back to idle and the 
consequent dual engine power loss.

    Required actions include inspecting the EWIS components adjacent to 
the left- and right-hand pre-cooler for damage, and repair if 
necessary; installing pre-cooler deflectors on the left- and right-hand 
pylons, and applying silicone sealant. You may examine the MCAI in the 
AD docket on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov/#!docketDetail;D=FAA-2014-0172-0002.

Comments

    We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing 
this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM (79 FR 17461, March 28, 
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 this AD with the changes described 
previously and minor editorial changes. We have determined that these 
minor changes:
     Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the 
NPRM (79 FR 17461, March 28, 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 17461, March 28, 2014).
    We also determined that these changes will not increase the 
economic burden on any operator or increase the scope of this AD.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this AD affects 181 airplanes of U.S. registry.
    We also estimate that it takes about 6 work-hours per product to 
comply with the basic requirements of this AD. The average labor rate 
is $85 per work-hour. Required parts cost about $366 per product. Based 
on these figures, we estimate the cost of the AD on U.S. operators to 
be $158,556, or $876 per product.
    We have received no definitive data that would enable us to provide 
cost estimates for the on-condition actions specified in this AD.

Authority for This Rulemaking

    Title 49 of the United States Code specifies the FAA's authority to 
issue rules on aviation safety. Subtitle I,

[[Page 51230]]

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

    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 that 
this AD:
    (1) Is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under Executive 
Order 12866,
    (2) Is not a ``significant rule'' under 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.

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 adding the following new airworthiness 
directive (AD):

2014-16-05 Embraer S.A.: Amendment 39-17929; Docket No. FAA-2014-
0172; Directorate Identifier 2013-NM-222-AD.

(a) Effective Date

    This AD is effective October 2, 2014.

(b) Affected ADs

    None.

(c) Applicability

    This AD applies to Embraer S.A. Model ERJ 170-100 LR, -100 STD, 
-100 SE, and -100 SU airplanes; and Model ERJ 170-200 LR, -200 SU, 
and -200 STD airplanes; certificated in any category; as identified 
in EMBRAER Service Bulletin 170-36-0019, dated August 23, 2011.

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 36, Pneumatic.

(e) Reason

    This AD was prompted by reports of ``BLEED 1(2) LEAK'' messages 
displayed on the engine indication and crew alert system (EICAS), 
and indirect damage to components of the electrical wiring 
interconnection system (EWIS) in the engine pylon area. We are 
issuing this AD to prevent indirect damage to EWIS components near 
the engine bleed air pre-coolers, which could result in a dual 
engine roll back to idle and consequent dual engine power loss and 
reduced controllability of the airplane.

(f) Compliance

    Comply with this AD within the compliance times specified, 
unless already done.

(g) Required Actions and Compliance Time

    Within 8,000 flight cycles or 12,000 flight hours after the 
effective date of this AD, whichever occurs later, do the actions 
specified in paragraphs (g)(1), (g)(2), and (g)(3) of this AD.
    (1) Do a general visual inspection of the EWIS components 
adjacent to the left- and right-hand pre-coolers (zones 419 and 429 
respectively) for damage, in accordance with the instructions 
specified in Subject 20-62-00, ``Requirements for EWIS Components 
Inspections and Checks--Maintenance Practices,'' of Chapter 20, 
``Standard Practices-Airframe,'' of EMBRAER 170/175/190/195 Standard 
Wiring Practices Manual SWPM-1590, Revision 25, dated June 3, 2013. 
Repair all damage before further flight, in accordance with the 
instructions specified in Subject 20-62-00, ``Requirements for EWIS 
Components Inspections and Checks--Maintenance Practices,'' of

195 Standard Wiring Practices Manual SWPM-1590, Revision 25, dated 
June 3, 2013.
    (2) Install a new deflector on the left- and right-hand pre-
cooler exhaust flange, in accordance with Part I or Part III, as 
applicable, of the Accomplishment Instructions of EMBRAER Service 
Bulletin 170-36-0019, dated August 23, 2011.
    (3) Apply high temp silicone sealant to the left- and right-hand 
pre-cooler, in accordance with Part II or IV, as applicable, of the 
Accomplishment Instructions of EMBRAER Service Bulletin 170-36-0019, 
dated August 23, 2011.
