Due to typographical errors when the AD was published, an incorrect serial number and an incorrect reference to the service information appeared in the text of the rule. Specifically, AD 2014–07–04 included the following under paragraph (a) in the Applicability section: ‘‘This AD applies to Model S–92A helicopters, serial numbers 92006 through 920084, certificated in any category.’’ As published, the reference to serial number ‘‘92006’’ is incorrect and should be serial number ‘‘920006.’’ VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:35 Sep 12, 2014 Jkt 232001 AD 2014–07–04 also included the following under paragraph (e)(2) in the Required Actions section: ‘‘(2) Within 5 hours TIS, inspect each clamp for correct installation as shown in Figures 1 through 14 of Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation Alert Service Bulletin No. 92–20–001, dated October 27, 2005 (ASB). If clamps are incorrectly installed or missing, before further flight, install clamps by following the Accomplishment Instructions, paragraphs 3.A.(4) through 3.A.(17) of the ASB.’’ As published, the reference to ‘‘Figures 1 through 14’’ is incorrect because there are only 13 figures in the service information. The FAA has determined that it is appropriate to take action to revise AD 2014–07–04 to correct the serial numbers and figure reference. This revision ensures that this AD only applies to those aircraft subject to the unsafe condition and that it is possible for operators to comply with the AD by referencing the correct portions of the service information. No other part of the preamble or regulatory information has been changed. The final rule is being reprinted in its entirety for the convenience of affected operators. Impact of the Correction Since this action reduces the number of helicopters to which the AD is applicable and corrects an obvious error in referencing the service information, it has no adverse economic impact and imposes no additional burden on any person. Therefore, we find that notice and opportunity for prior public comment are unnecessary and that good cause exists for making this amendment effective in less than 30 days. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by Reference, Safety.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: We are revising an airworthiness directive (AD) 2013–22– SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:35 Sep 12, 2014 Jkt 232001 We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 to add an AD that would apply to DG Flugzeugbau GmbH Model DG– 1000T airplanes. The NPRM was published in the Federal Register on June 27, 2014 (79 FR 36440), and proposed to revise AD 2013–22–14, Amendment 39–17646 (78 FR 65869, November 4, 2013) (‘‘AD 2013–22–14’’). Since we issued AD 2013–22–14, the manufacturer of the Solo Kleinmotoren Model 2350 C engine has developed an PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 An occurrence of Solo 2350 C engine shaft failure and consequent propeller detachment was reported. The preliminary investigation revealed that the failed shaft was earlier modified in accordance with an approved method. This condition, if not corrected, could lead to additional cases of release of the propeller from the engine, possibly resulting in damage to the sailplane, or injury to persons on the ground. To address this potential unsafe condition, EASA issued Emergency AD 2013–0217–E to prohibit operation of the engine. Since that AD was issued, Solo Kleinmotoren GmbH developed a modification consisting of installing an improved eccenter axle—pulley assembly, allowing to resume operation of the engine. For the reason described above, this AD is revised to incorporate the optional modification, cancelling the operational restriction. The MCAI can be found in the AD docket on the Internet at: http:// www.regulations.gov/ #!documentDetail;D=FAA-2013-09290003. Comments We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM (79 FR 36440, June 27, 2014) or on the determination of the cost to the public. Conclusion Costs of Compliance We estimate that this AD will affect 2 products of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it will take about .5 workhour per product to comply with the retained requirement of placing a copy of AD 2013–22–14 into the Limitations section of the aircraft flight manual, E:\FR\FM\15SER1.SGM 15SER1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Comments Invited

    This AD is a final rule that involves requirements affecting flight 
safety, and we did not provide you with notice and an opportunity to 
provide your comments prior to it becoming effective. However, we 
invite you to participate in this rulemaking by submitting written 
comments, data, or views. We also invite comments relating to the 
economic, environmental, energy, or federalism impacts that resulted 
from adopting this AD. The most helpful comments reference a specific 
portion of the AD, explain the reason for any recommended change, and 
include supporting data. To ensure the docket does not contain 
duplicate comments, commenters should send only one copy of written 
comments, or if comments are filed electronically, commenters should 
submit them only one time. We will file in the docket all comments that 
we receive, as well as a report summarizing each substantive public 
contact with FAA personnel concerning this rulemaking during the 
comment period. We will consider all the comments we receive and may 
conduct additional rulemaking based on those comments.

Discussion

    AD 2014-07-04, Amendment 39-17818 (79 FR 21385, April 16, 2014), 
applied to certain Sikorsky Model S-92A helicopters and required, in 
part, repetitively inspecting each clamp for correct installation. Due 
to typographical errors when the AD was published, an incorrect serial 
number and an incorrect reference to the service information appeared 
in the text of the rule.
    Specifically, AD 2014-07-04 included the following under paragraph 
(a) in the Applicability section: ``This AD applies to Model S-92A 
helicopters, serial numbers 92006 through 920084, certificated in any 
category.'' As published, the reference to serial number ``92006'' is 
incorrect and should be serial number ``920006.''
    AD 2014-07-04 also included the following under paragraph (e)(2) in 
the Required Actions section: ``(2) Within 5 hours TIS, inspect each 
clamp for correct installation as shown in Figures 1 through 14 of 
Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation Alert Service Bulletin No. 92-20-001, 
dated October 27, 2005 (ASB). If clamps are incorrectly installed or 
missing, before further flight, install clamps by following the 
Accomplishment Instructions, paragraphs 3.A.(4) through 3.A.(17) of the 
ASB.'' As published, the reference to ``Figures 1 through 14'' is 
incorrect because there are only 13 figures in the service information.
    The FAA has determined that it is appropriate to take action to 
revise AD 2014-07-04 to correct the serial numbers and figure 
reference. This revision ensures that this AD only applies to those 
aircraft subject to the unsafe condition and that it is possible for 
operators to comply with the AD by referencing the correct portions of 
the service information.
    No other part of the preamble or regulatory information has been 
changed. The final rule is being reprinted in its entirety for the 
convenience of affected operators.

Impact of the Correction

    Since this action reduces the number of helicopters to which the AD 
is applicable and corrects an obvious error in referencing the service 
information, it has no adverse economic impact and imposes no 
additional burden on any person. Therefore, we find that notice and 
opportunity for prior public comment are unnecessary and that good 
cause exists for making this amendment effective in less than 30 days.
