SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: and are approved by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). EASA issued AD 2008–0221 to require accomplishment of the maintenance tasks, and implementation of the airworthiness limitations, as specified in Dassault Aviation F20 AMM chapter 5–40 at revision 13. Since that [EASA] AD was issued, Dassault Aviation issued F20 AMM chapter 5–40 at revision 15, which introduces new or more restrictive maintenance requirements and/or airworthiness limitations. Dassault Aviation AMM chapter 5–40 revision 15 contains among other changes the following requirements: —Specific instructions applicable to F20GF (serial number 397); —Check of overpressure tightness on pressurization control regulating valves; —Check of overpressure relief valve vacuum supply lines. A new document reference number which comes with DGT 131028 revision 15 is replacing DMD11755. The maintenance tasks and airworthiness limitations, as specified in the F20 AMM chapter 5–40, have been identified as mandatory actions for continued airworthiness of the Fan Jet Falcon type design. Failure to comply with AMM chapter 5–40 at revision 15 might constitute an unsafe condition. For the reasons described above, this [EASA] AD requires implementation of the maintenance tasks and airworthiness limitations, as specified in Dassault Aviation F20 AMM chapter 5–40 at revision 15. Discussion We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 by adding an AD that would apply to all Dassault Aviation Model FAN JET FALCON and FAN JET FALCON SERIES C, D, E, F, and G airplanes. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on September 15, 2014 (79 FR 54917). The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the European Community, has issued EASA Airworthiness Directive 2014–0021, dated January 20, 2014 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for all Dassault Aviation Model FAN JET FALCON and FAN JET FALCON SERIES C, D, E, F, and G airplanes. The MCAI states: Comments We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM (79 FR 54917, September 15, 2014) or on the determination of the cost to the public. The airworthiness limitations and maintenance requirements for the Fan Jet Falcon type design are included in Dassault Aviation Falcon 20 (F20) Aircraft Maintenance Manual (AMM) chapter 5–40 PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 The unsafe condition is reduced structural integrity of the airplane. You may examine the MCAI in the AD docket on the Internet at http:// www.regulations.gov/ #!documentDetail;D=FAA-2014-06260002. 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 54917, September 15, 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 54917, September 15, 2014). Costs of Compliance We estimate that this AD affects 168 airplanes of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it would take about 1 work-hour per product to E:\FR\FM\21JAR1.SGM 21JAR1 2816 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 13 / Wednesday, January 21, 2015 / Rules and Regulations comply with the basic requirements of this AD. The average labor rate is $85 per work-hour. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this AD on U.S. operators to be $14,280, or $85 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. wreier-aviles on DSK4TPTVN1PROD with RULES 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.

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of 
Transportation (DOT).

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all 
Dassault Aviation Model FAN JET FALCON and FAN JET FALCON SERIES C, D, 
E, F, and G airplanes. This AD was prompted by our determination of the 
need for a revision to the airplane airworthiness limitations to 
introduce changes to the maintenance requirements and airworthiness 
limitations. This AD requires revising the maintenance or inspection 
program, as applicable, to incorporate a new airworthiness limitations 
section. We are issuing this AD to prevent reduced structural integrity 
of the airplane.

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 all Dassault Aviation Model 
FAN JET FALCON and FAN JET FALCON SERIES C, D, E, F, and G airplanes. 
The NPRM published in the Federal Register on September 15, 2014 (79 FR 
54917).
    The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical 
Agent for the Member States of the European Community, has issued EASA 
Airworthiness Directive 2014-0021, dated January 20, 2014 (referred to 
after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or 
``the MCAI''), to correct an unsafe condition for all Dassault Aviation 
Model FAN JET FALCON and FAN JET FALCON SERIES C, D, E, F, and G 
airplanes. The MCAI states:

    The airworthiness limitations and maintenance requirements for 
the Fan Jet Falcon type design are included in Dassault Aviation 
Falcon 20 (F20) Aircraft Maintenance Manual (AMM) chapter 5-40 and 
are approved by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). EASA 
issued AD 2008-0221 to require accomplishment of the maintenance 
tasks, and implementation of the airworthiness limitations, as 
specified in Dassault Aviation F20 AMM chapter 5-40 at revision 13.
    Since that [EASA] AD was issued, Dassault Aviation issued F20 
AMM chapter 5-40 at revision 15, which introduces new or more 
restrictive maintenance requirements and/or airworthiness 
limitations.
    Dassault Aviation AMM chapter 5-40 revision 15 contains among 
other changes the following requirements:
    --Specific instructions applicable to F20GF (serial number 397);
    --Check of overpressure tightness on pressurization control 
regulating valves;
    --Check of overpressure relief valve vacuum supply lines.
    A new document reference number which comes with DGT 131028 
revision 15 is replacing DMD11755.
    The maintenance tasks and airworthiness limitations, as 
specified in the F20 AMM chapter 5-40, have been identified as 
mandatory actions for continued airworthiness of the Fan Jet Falcon 
type design. Failure to comply with AMM chapter 5-40 at revision 15 
might constitute an unsafe condition.
    For the reasons described above, this [EASA] AD requires 
implementation of the maintenance tasks and airworthiness 
limitations, as specified in Dassault Aviation F20 AMM chapter 5-40 
at revision 15.

    The unsafe condition is reduced structural integrity of the 
airplane. You may examine the MCAI in the AD docket on the Internet at 
http://www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=FAA-2014-0626-0002.

Comments

    We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing 
this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM (79 FR 54917, September 
15, 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 54917, September 15, 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 54917, September 15, 2014).

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this AD affects 168 airplanes of U.S. registry.
    We also estimate that it would take about 1 work-hour per product 
to

[[Page 2816]]

comply with the basic requirements of this AD. The average labor rate 
is $85 per work-hour. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of 
this AD on U.S. operators to be $14,280, or $85 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

any category, all serial numbers.

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 05, Time Limits 
and Maintenance Checks.

(e) Reason

    This AD was prompted by our determination of the need for a 
revision to the airplane airworthiness limitations to introduce 
changes to the maintenance requirements and airworthiness 
limitations. We are issuing this AD to prevent reduced structural 
integrity of the airplane.

(f) Compliance

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

(g) Maintenance or Inspection Program Revision

    Within 30 days after the effective date of this AD, revise the 
maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate the 
information specified in Chapter 5-40, Airworthiness Limitations, 
DGT 131028, Revision 15, dated March 2012, of the Dassault Aviation 
Falcon 20 Maintenance Manual. The initial compliance time for 
accomplishing the actions specified in Chapter 5-40, Airworthiness 
Limitations, DGT 131028, Revision 15, dated March 2012, of the 
Dassault Aviation Falcon 20 Maintenance Manual is at the applicable

Chapter 5-40, Airworthiness Limitations, DGT 131028, Revision 15, 
dated March 2012, of the Dassault Aviation Falcon 20 Maintenance 
Manual specifies a compliance time in flight hours, those compliance 
times are total flight hours. Where the threshold column in the 
table in paragraph B, Mandatory Maintenance Operations, of Chapter 
5-40, Airworthiness Limitations, DGT 131028, Revision 15, dated 
March 2012, of the Dassault Aviation Falcon 20 Maintenance Manual 
specifies a compliance time in years, those compliance times are 
since the date of issuance of the original French or European 
Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) standard airworthiness certificate or 
date of issuance of the original French or EASA export certificate 
of airworthiness.

(h) No Alternative Actions and Intervals

    After accomplishing the revision required by paragraph (g) of 
this AD, no alternative actions (e.g., inspections) or intervals may 
be used unless the actions or intervals are approved as an 
alternative method of compliance (AMOC) in accordance with the 
procedures specified in paragraph (i)(1) of this AD.
