SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Comments Invited We invite you to send any written relevant data, views, or arguments about this proposed AD. Send your comments to an address listed under the ADDRESSES section. Include ‘‘Docket No. FAA–2014–0848; Directorate Identifier 2014–CE–031–AD’’ at the beginning of your comments. We specifically invite comments on the overall regulatory, economic, environmental, and energy aspects of this proposed AD. We will consider all comments received by the closing date and may amend this proposed AD because of those comments. We will post all comments we receive, without change, to http:// regulations.gov, including any personal information you provide. We will also post a report summarizing each substantive verbal contact we receive about this proposed AD. Discussion The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the European Community, has issued AD No. 2014– 0212, dated September 19, 2014 (referred to after this as ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for certain PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 Grob-Werke Models G115EG and G120A airplanes. The MCAI states: An operator of a G 115E aeroplane experienced a total loss of electrical power in flight. The root cause was found to be a defective starter solenoid causing an internal short circuit, which resulted in breakdown of the system voltage. This condition, if not detected and corrected, could result in reduced control of the aeroplane. To address this potential unsafe condition, GROB Aircraft AG issued Service Bulletin (SB) MSB1078–196 for G 115 aeroplanes and SB MSB1121–144 for G 120 aeroplanes to provide instructions for inspection and corrective action. For the reason described above, this AD requires a one-time inspection of the starter solenoid and, depending on the findings, replacement of the starter. A technical solution is currently under development and further AD action may follow. You may examine the MCAI on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating Docket No. FAA–2014–0848. Relevant Service Information GROB Aircraft has issued Service Bulletin No. MSB1078–196 and Service Bulletin No. MSB1121–144, both dated July 14, 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 this State of Design Authority, they have notified us of the unsafe condition described in the MCAI and service information referenced above. We are proposing this AD because we evaluated all information and determined the unsafe condition exists and is likely to exist or develop on other products of the same type design. Interim Action We consider this proposed AD interim action. GROB Aircraft is currently working on a final technical solution to resolve the unsafe condition. If final action is later identified, we might consider further rulemaking. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this proposed AD will affect 6 products of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it would take about 4 work-hours per product to comply with the basic requirements of this proposed AD. The average labor rate is $85 per work-hour. E:\FR\FM\23OCP1.SGM 23OCP1
