SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\20NOR1.SGM 20NOR1 69038 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 224 / Thursday, November 20, 2014 / Rules and Regulations FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Fabio Buttitta, Aerospace Engineer, Airframe and Mechanical Systems Branch, ANE–171, FAA, New York Aircraft Certification Office, 1600 Stewart Avenue, Suite 410, Westbury, NY 11590; telephone 516–228–7303; fax 516–794–5531. 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 Bombardier, Inc. Model CL–600–2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on August 4, 2014 (79 FR 45135). Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation authority for Canada, has issued Canadian Airworthiness Directive CF–2014–10, dated February 12, 2014 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL– 600–2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes. The MCAI states: Cases of inboard and outboard hydraulic brake lines connected to the incorrect port of the swivel assembly on the main landing gear were found in service, including a runway overrun event. Cross-connected brake hydraulic lines can cause the brakes and/or the anti-skid system to operate incorrectly. During a high speed rejected take-off, inability for the brakes to operate correctly could be catastrophic. This [Canadian] AD mandates the modification to prevent inadvertent crossconnection of the inboard and outboard hydraulic brake lines. The required action in this AD includes installing a new bracket on the left and right lower aft-wing planks of the MLG. You may examine the MCAI in the AD docket on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov/ #!documentDetail;D=FAA-2014-04890002. Comments We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM (79 FR 45135, August 4, 2014) or on the determination of the cost to the public. rmajette on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with RULES Conclusion We reviewed the relevant data and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting this AD as proposed, except for minor editorial changes. We have determined that these minor changes: • Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the NPRM (79 FR VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:14 Nov 19, 2014 Jkt 235001 45135, August 4, 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 45135, August 4, 2014). Costs of Compliance We estimate that this AD affects 526 airplanes of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it will take 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 will cost about $375 per product. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this AD on U.S. operators to be $465,510, or $885 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 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 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion On July 16, 2014, at 79 FR 41462, the Federal Register published our notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM), which proposed to amend 14 CFR part 39 by adding an AD that would apply to Agusta Model A109E, A109K2, A119, and AW119 MKII helicopters with a main transmission, part number (P/N) 109–0400–03–103, 109–0400–05–103, and 109–0400–03–109, with a Gleason crown, P/N 109–0403–07–103, installed. The NPRM proposed to require, for main transmissions with 2,400 or more hours time-in-service (TIS), performing repetitive magnetic particle inspections of the Gleason crown for a crack. If there is a crack, the NPRM proposed replacing the Gleason crown assembly before further flight. The NPRM also proposed to prohibit installing a Gleason crown, P/N 109–0403–07–103, or a Gleason crown assembly, P/N 109–0401–27–101 or P/N 109–0401–27–109, on any helicopter. The proposed requirements were intended to detect a crack, which could cause damage to or loss of the main rotor drive and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter. The NPRM was prompted by AD No. 2013–0118, dated June 3, 2013, issued by EASA, which is the Technical Agent E:\FR\FM\20NOR1.SGM 20NOR1

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 Bombardier, Inc. 
Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes. The NPRM 
published in the Federal Register on August 4, 2014 (79 FR 45135).
    Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation 
authority for Canada, has issued Canadian Airworthiness Directive CF-
2014-10, dated February 12, 2014 (referred to after this as the 
Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ``the MCAI''), to 
correct an unsafe condition for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-
2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes. The MCAI states:

    Cases of inboard and outboard hydraulic brake lines connected to 
the incorrect port of the swivel assembly on the main landing gear 
were found in service, including a runway overrun event. Cross-
connected brake hydraulic lines can cause the brakes and/or the 
anti-skid system to operate incorrectly. During a high speed 
rejected take-off, inability for the brakes to operate correctly 
could be catastrophic.
    This [Canadian] AD mandates the modification to prevent 
inadvertent cross-connection of the inboard and outboard hydraulic 
brake lines.

    The required action in this AD includes installing a new bracket on 
the left and right lower aft-wing planks of the MLG. You may examine 
the MCAI in the AD docket on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=FAA-2014-0489-0002.

Comments

    We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing 
this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM (79 FR 45135, August 4, 
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 as proposed, except for 
minor editorial changes. We have determined that these minor changes:
     Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the 
NPRM (79 FR 45135, August 4, 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 45135, August 4, 2014).

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this AD affects 526 airplanes of U.S. registry.
    We also estimate that it will take 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 will cost about $375 per 
product. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this AD on 
U.S. operators to be $465,510, or $885 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 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.

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):

2014-23-06 Bombardier, Inc.: Amendment 39-18022. Docket No. FAA-
2014-0489; Directorate Identifier 2014-NM-048-AD.

(a) Effective Date

    This AD becomes effective December 26, 2014.

(b) Affected ADs

    None.

(c) Applicability

    This AD applies to Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional 
Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes, certificated in any category, 
serial numbers 7003 and subsequent.

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 32, Landing 
Gear.

(e) Reason

    This AD was prompted by a report indicating that inboard and 
outboard hydraulic lines of the brakes were found connected to the 
incorrect ports on the swivel assembly of the main landing gear 
(MLG). We are issuing this AD to prevent incorrect installation of 
the brake hydraulic lines, which could cause the brakes and the 
anti-skid system to operate incorrectly, and consequent catastrophic 
failure of the airplane during a high-speed rejected take-off.

[[Page 69039]]

(f) Compliance

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

(g) Modification

    Within 6,600 flight hours after the effective date of this AD, 
but no later than 36 months after the effective date of this AD: 
Modify the MLG by installing a new bracket on the left and right 
lower aft-wing planks, in accordance with the Accomplishment 
Instructions of Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R-32-110, dated 
December 19, 2013.
