SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On September 12, 2014, FHFA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking and request for comments proposing to revise its regulations governing Bank membership, located at 12 CFR part 1263. See 79 FR 54847 (Sept. 12, 2014). Primarily, the proposed rule would revise part 1263 to: (1) Require each Bank member institution and each applicant for Bank membership to hold one percent of its assets in ‘‘home mortgage loans’’ (as that term is defined in proposed part 1263) in order to satisfy the statutory requirement that an institution make long-term home mortgage loans to be eligible for membership; (2) require each member to comply on an ongoing basis, rather than only at the time of application as at present, with the foregoing requirement and, where applicable, with the requirement that it have at least 10 percent of its assets in ‘‘residential mortgage loans’’ (as defined in proposed part 1263); (3) define the term ‘‘insurance company’’ to exclude captive insurers from Bank membership, but permit existing captive members to remain members for five years with PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 certain restrictions on their ability to obtain advances; (4) require a Bank to obtain and review an insurance company’s audited financial statements when considering it for membership; and (5) clarify the standards by which an insurance company’s ‘‘principal place of business’’ is to be identified in determining the appropriate Bank district for membership. The comment period for the proposed rule was originally set to expire on November 12, 2014. However, FHFA has received numerous requests from the Banks and from other interested parties for additional time to review the rule and provide comments. In response to these requests, FHFA is extending the comment period by an additional 60 days. This will result in a total comment period of 120 days, which will expire on January 12, 2015.

We will also post a report summarizing each substantive verbal contact we receive about this proposed AD. Discussion We received seven reports of fuel leaks in Beechcraft Corporation Model G58 airplanes. Six fuel leaks were observed before takeoff or after landing. One in-flight fuel leak caused large and rapid loss of fuel and a 24-gallon fuel imbalance. An investigation found issues that may have occurred on the production line, including fuel cell fit inconsistencies; improper installation of fuel components, which may cause loads on fuel cells and breach of fuel cells; and improper installation of fuel hoses and clamps, which may cause fuel leaks. Further investigation found discrepancies and variation in the fit of the fuel cell on airplanes produced after December 2011. These conditions, if not corrected, could result in significant fuel leakage. This could lead to an imbalance condition, which may affect airplane controllability and/or could lead to an airplane fire. Relevant Service Information We reviewed Beechcraft Mandatory Service Bulletin SB 28–4127, dated June 2013; and Beechcraft Mandatory Service Bulletin SB 28–4131, dated November 2013. The service information describes procedures for inspection of the left and right fuel system installations and replacement of parts, as necessary; inspection for proper torque on fuel system fittings; and inspection and replacement, as necessary, of fuel cells. FAA’s Determination We are proposing this AD because we evaluated all the relevant information and determined the unsafe condition described previously is likely to exist or develop in other products of the same type design. This proposed AD will only affect fuel cells installed on airplanes produced after December 2011. This proposed AD would include prohibiting the installation of both Beechcraft fuel cell part numbers produced by FFC and any PMA part numbers on the Model G58 airplanes serial numbers (SNs) TH– 2335 through TH–2378, certificated in any category. We are evaluating the Beechcraft and PMA fuel cells that are installed on airplanes prior to December 2011 for the same or similar condition and may take future rulemaking action for airplanes incorporating these parts. Proposed AD Requirements This proposed AD would require accomplishing the actions specified in the service information described previously and prohibit the installation of certain Beechcraft and FFC PMA fuel cells. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this proposed AD affects 18 airplanes of U.S. registry. We estimate the following costs to comply with this proposed AD: asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with RULES ESTIMATED COSTS Action Labor cost * Inspection of fuel cells ..................................... ** Inspection of left and right fuel system installations.

We estimate the following costs to do any necessary installations/ replacements that would be required based on the results of proposed inspections. We have no way of determining the number of airplanes that might need these installations/ replacements: ON-CONDITION COSTS Action Labor cost Replacement of left-hand (LH) leading edge (LE) outboard fuel cell. Replacement of right-hand (RH) LE outboard fuel cell ............ Replacement of LH LE inboard fuel cell ................................... Replacement of RH LE inboard fuel cell .................................. Replacement of LH center fuel cell .......................................... Replacement of RH center fuel cell .......................................... Replacement of tube assembly, flex hose, and clamps ........... According to Beechcraft Corporation, some of the costs of this proposed AD may be covered under warranty, thereby reducing the cost impact on affected individuals. We do not control warranty coverage for affected individuals. As a result, we have included all costs in our cost estimate. asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with RULES 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.

Cost per product $3,959 3,959 5,624 3,602 3,291 4,409 1,522 Regulatory Findings The Proposed Amendment 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. Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the FAA proposes to amend 14 CFR part 39 as follows: PART 39—AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES 1. The authority citation for part 39 continues to read as follows: ■ Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701. § 39.13 [Amended] 2. The FAA amends § 39.13 by adding the following new airworthiness directive (AD): ■ Beechcraft Corporation: Docket No. FAA– 2014–0771; Directorate Identifier 2014– CE–006–AD. (a) Comments Due Date We must receive comments by November 21, 2014. (b) Affected ADs None. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 (c) Applicability Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by reference, Safety. This AD applies to Beechcraft Corporation Model G58 airplanes, serial numbers (SNs) TH–2335 through TH–2378, certificated in any category.

(e) Unsafe Condition This AD was prompted by reports of fuel leaks due to fuel cells that did not properly fit in Model G58 airplanes. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct improperly fitting fuel cells. We are also issuing this AD to correct left and right fuel system installations and set correct torque on fuel system fittings for all affected airplanes, which if not corrected, could result in significant fuel leakage. This could lead to an imbalance condition, which may affect airplane controllability, and/or could lead to an airplane fire. (f) Compliance Comply with this AD within the compliance times specified in paragraphs (g) and (h), including all subparagraphs, unless already done. All of the actions in paragraphs (g) and (h) must be completed for compliance with this AD. The actions of Beechcraft Mandatory Service Bulletin SB 28–4127, dated June 2013, and Beechcraft Mandatory Service Bulletin SB 28–4131, dated November 2013, have numerous overlapping tasks. Instead of completing the required actions in paragraph (g) and paragraph (h) separately, you may complete the actions of both paragraphs concurrently to avoid repeating the same tasks unnecessarily. We recommend reviewing Appendices 1 through 3 for general guidance and suggestions for task ordering to assist you in not repeating tasks unnecessarily. asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with RULES (g) Fuel Cell Inspection (1) For Model G58 airplanes, S/Ns TH– 2356 through TH–2378: within the next 100 hours TIS after the effective date of this AD or within the next 12 months after the effective date of this AD, whichever occurs first, inspect the fuel cells (left hand (LH) inboard, outboard, and center; and right hand (RH) inboard, outboard, and center) following Beechcraft Mandatory Service Bulletin SB 28–4131, dated November 2013.

Airworthiness Directives; Beechcraft Corporation Airplanes

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

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

SUMMARY: We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for 
certain Beechcraft Corporation Model G58 airplanes. This proposed AD 
was prompted by reports of fuel leaks due to fuel cells that did not 
properly fit in Model G58 airplanes. This proposed AD would require 
inspecting for and replacing, as necessary, certain fuel cells. This 
proposed AD would also require inspecting and replacing parts, as 
necessary, of the left and right fuel system installations and 
correcting torques on fuel system fittings; and prohibit future 
installations of certain fuel cells. We are proposing this AD to 
correct the unsafe condition on these products.

DATES: We must receive comments on this proposed AD by November 21, 
2014.

Discussion

    We received seven reports of fuel leaks in Beechcraft Corporation 
Model G58 airplanes. Six fuel leaks were observed before takeoff or 
after landing. One in-flight fuel leak caused large and rapid loss of 
fuel and a 24-gallon fuel imbalance.
    An investigation found issues that may have occurred on the 
production line, including fuel cell fit inconsistencies; improper 
installation of fuel components, which may cause loads on fuel cells 
and breach of fuel cells; and improper installation of fuel hoses and 
clamps, which may cause fuel leaks.
    Further investigation found discrepancies and variation in the fit 
of the fuel cell on airplanes produced after December 2011.
    These conditions, if not corrected, could result in significant 
fuel leakage. This could lead to an imbalance condition, which may 
affect airplane controllability and/or could lead to an airplane fire.

Relevant Service Information

    We reviewed Beechcraft Mandatory Service Bulletin SB 28-4127, dated 
June 2013; and Beechcraft Mandatory Service Bulletin SB 28-4131, dated 
November 2013. The service information describes procedures for 
inspection of the left and right fuel system installations and 
replacement of parts, as necessary; inspection for proper torque on 
fuel system fittings; and inspection and replacement, as necessary, of 
fuel cells.

FAA's Determination

    We are proposing this AD because we evaluated all the relevant 
information and determined the unsafe condition described previously is 
likely to exist or develop in other products of the same type design. 
This proposed AD will only affect fuel cells installed on airplanes 
produced after December 2011. This proposed AD would include 
prohibiting the installation of both Beechcraft fuel cell part numbers 
produced by FFC and any PMA part numbers on the Model G58 airplanes 
serial numbers (SNs) TH-2335 through TH-2378, certificated in any 
category.
    We are evaluating the Beechcraft and PMA fuel cells that are 
installed on airplanes prior to December 2011 for the same or similar 
condition and may take future rulemaking action for airplanes 
incorporating these parts.

Proposed AD Requirements

    This proposed AD would require accomplishing the actions specified 
in the service information described previously and prohibit the 
installation of certain Beechcraft and FFC PMA fuel cells.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this proposed AD affects 18 airplanes of U.S. 
registry.
    We estimate the following costs to comply with this proposed AD:

    According to Beechcraft Corporation, some of the costs of this 
proposed AD may be covered under warranty, thereby reducing the cost 
impact on affected individuals. We do not control warranty coverage for 
affected individuals. As a result, we have included all costs in our 
cost estimate.

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.

List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39

    Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by 
reference, Safety.

The Proposed Amendment

    Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the 
Administrator, the FAA proposes to amend 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):

Beechcraft Corporation: Docket No. FAA-2014-0771; Directorate 
Identifier 2014-CE-006-AD.

(a) Comments Due Date

    We must receive comments by November 21, 2014.

(b) Affected ADs

    None.

(c) Applicability

    This AD applies to Beechcraft Corporation Model G58 airplanes, 
serial numbers (SNs) TH-2335 through TH-2378, certificated in any 
category.

[[Page 60387]]

(d) Subject

    Joint Aircraft System Component (JASC)/Air Transport Association 
(ATA) of America Code: 28, Fuel.

(e) Unsafe Condition

    This AD was prompted by reports of fuel leaks due to fuel cells 
that did not properly fit in Model G58 airplanes. We are issuing 
this AD to detect and correct improperly fitting fuel cells. We are 
also issuing this AD to correct left and right fuel system 
installations and set correct torque on fuel system fittings for all 
affected airplanes, which if not corrected, could result in 
significant fuel leakage. This could lead to an imbalance condition, 
which may affect airplane controllability, and/or could lead to an 
airplane fire.

(f) Compliance

    Comply with this AD within the compliance times specified in 
paragraphs (g) and (h), including all subparagraphs, unless already 
done. All of the actions in paragraphs (g) and (h) must be completed 
for compliance with this AD. The actions of Beechcraft Mandatory 
Service Bulletin SB 28-4127, dated June 2013, and Beechcraft 
Mandatory Service Bulletin SB 28-4131, dated November 2013, have 
numerous overlapping tasks. Instead of completing the required 
actions in paragraph (g) and paragraph (h) separately, you may 
complete the actions of both paragraphs concurrently to avoid 
repeating the same tasks unnecessarily. We recommend reviewing 
Appendices 1 through 3 for general guidance and suggestions for task 
ordering to assist you in not repeating tasks unnecessarily.

(g) Fuel Cell Inspection

    (1) For Model G58 airplanes, S/Ns TH-2356 through TH-2378:
