Relevant Service Information Bombardier, Inc. has issued Service Bulletin 601R–71–034, Revision B, dated August 1, 2014. The actions described in this service information are intended to correct the unsafe condition identified in the MCAI. 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.

Model CL–600– 2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes. The MCAI states: There have been a number of engine fan cowl panel dislodgement incidents reported on the Bombardier CL–600–2B19 aeroplane fleet. The dislodged panels may cause damage to the fuselage and flight control surfaces of the aeroplane. Also, the debris from a dislodged panel may result in runway contamination and has the potential of causing injury on the ground. Although the majority of the subject panel dislodgements were reported on the first or second flight after an engine maintenance task was performed that required removal and reinstallation of the subject panels, the frequency of the dislodgements indicates that the existing attachment design is prone to human (maintenance) error. Bombardier has attempted to mitigate this issue by issuing maintenance advisories emphasizing the proper installation of engine fan cowl panels. In order to further mitigate VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:00 Oct 01, 2014 Jkt 235001 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 518 airplanes of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it would take about 9 work-hours 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 $5,248 per product. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this proposed AD on U.S. operators to be $3,114,734, or $6,013 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 PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by reference, Safety.

Discussion

    Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the airworthiness 
authority for Canada, has issued Canadian Airworthiness Directive CF-
2014-20, dated July 9, 2014 (referred to after this as the Mandatory 
Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ``the MCAI''), to correct an 
unsafe condition for all Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional 
Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes. The MCAI states:

    There have been a number of engine fan cowl panel dislodgement 
incidents reported on the Bombardier CL-600-2B19 aeroplane fleet. 
The dislodged panels may cause damage to the fuselage and flight 
control surfaces of the aeroplane. Also, the debris from a dislodged 
panel may result in runway contamination and has the potential of 
causing injury on the ground.
    Although the majority of the subject panel dislodgements were 
reported on the first or second flight after an engine maintenance 
task was performed that required removal and reinstallation of the 
subject panels, the frequency of the dislodgements indicates that 
the existing attachment design is prone to human (maintenance) 
error.
    Bombardier has attempted to mitigate this issue by issuing 
maintenance advisories emphasizing the proper installation of engine 
fan cowl panels. In order to further mitigate the potential safety 
hazard of the subject panel dislodgement, Bombardier has issued 
Service Bulletin (SB) 601R-71-034 to install additional fasteners 
for the attachment of the engine fan cowl panels to the nacelle's 
structure.
    This [Canadian] AD is issued to mandate compliance with 
Bombardier SB 601R-71-034.

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-
0750.

Relevant Service Information

    Bombardier, Inc. has issued Service Bulletin 601R-71-034, Revision 
B, dated August 1, 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 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 518 airplanes of U.S. 
registry.
    We also estimate that it would take about 9 work-hours 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 $5,248 
per product. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this 
proposed AD on U.S. operators to be $3,114,734, or $6,013 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.
