Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes, 4811-4812 [2015-01577]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 19 / Thursday, January 29, 2015 / Proposed Rules 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. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS 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 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 AD: ■ VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:13 Jan 28, 2015 Jkt 235001 PILATUS Aircraft Ltd.: Docket No. FAA– 2015–0132; Directorate Identifier 2014– CE–038–AD. (a) Comments Due Date We must receive comments by March 16, 2015. (b) Affected ADs None. (c) Applicability This AD applies to PILATUS Aircraft Ltd. Model PC–7 airplanes, all serial numbers, that (1) have not incorporated the actions of any version of PILATUS PC–7 Service Bulletin No: 21–006, which allows for the installation of a different air conditioning compressor mounted at a different location and thus making the unsafe condition nonexistent; and (2) are certificated in any category. (d) Subject Air Transport Association of America (ATA) Code 21: Air Conditioning. (e) Reason This AD was prompted by mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as the potential for a spring on the compressor clutch plate to shear the oil cooler inlet-hose due to the close routing of these parts without a protective cover. We are issuing this AD to correct the unprotected routing of the oil cooler inlet-hose, which could lead to damage of the oil hose resulting in an engine oil spill into the engine bay. (f) Actions and Compliance Unless already done, within the next 120 days after the effective date of this AD, install a cover assembly on the attachment points of the compressor following the Accomplishment Instructions in PILATUS PC–7 Service Bulletin No: 21–012, dated November 4, 2014. (g) Other FAA AD Provisions The following provisions also apply to this AD: (1) Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs): The Manager, Standards Office, FAA, has the authority to approve AMOCs for this AD, if requested using the procedures found in 14 CFR 39.19. Send information to ATTN: Doug Rudolph, Aerospace Engineer, FAA, Small Airplane Directorate, 901 Locust, Room 301, Kansas City, Missouri 64106; telephone: (816) 329–4059; fax: (816) 329– 4090; email: doug.rudolph@faa.gov. Before using any approved AMOC on any airplane to which the AMOC applies, notify your appropriate principal inspector (PI) in the FAA Flight Standards District Office (FSDO), or lacking a PI, your local FSDO. (2) Airworthy Product: For any requirement in this AD to obtain corrective actions from a manufacturer or other source, use these actions if they are FAA-approved. Corrective actions are considered FAA-approved if they are approved by the State of Design Authority PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 4811 (or their delegated agent). You are required to assure the product is airworthy before it is returned to service. (3) Reporting Requirements: For any reporting requirement in this AD, a federal agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, nor shall a person be subject to a penalty for failure to comply with a collection of information subject to the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act unless that collection of information displays a current valid OMB Control Number. The OMB Control Number for this information collection is 2120–0056. Public reporting for this collection of information is estimated to be approximately 5 minutes per response, including the time for reviewing instructions, completing and reviewing the collection of information.

These revisions would align VA’s disclosure and interest rate adjustment requirements with the implementing regulations of the Truth in Lending Act (TILA), as recently revised by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). Specifically, the rule would amend the timing, content, and format requirements for the disclosures provided to borrowers prior to an interest-rate adjustment. The proposed regulation would also require that an interest-rate adjustment correspond with the interest rate index available 45 days prior to the adjustment. This proposed rulemaking would ensure VA’s consistency with other applicable consumer finance and housing regulations governing adjustable rate mortgages.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:  We proposed to amend 14 CFR part 39 by 
adding a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) that would apply to The 
Boeing Company Model 747 airplanes equipped with an MDSCD. The NPRM was 
published in the Federal Register on December 1, 2014 (79 FR 71037). 
The NPRM proposed to require revising the airplane flight manual to 
incorporate limitations for carrying certain payloads. The NPRM also 
invites comments on its overall regulatory, economic, environmental, 
and energy aspects.

Events Leading to the Reopening of the Comment Period

    Since we issued the NPRM (79 FR 71037, December 1, 2014), several 
commenters have requested that the comment period be extended/reopened 
to provide additional time to comment on the merits of the proposal.

FAA's Determination

    We found it appropriate to reopen the comment period to give all 
interested persons additional time to examine the proposed requirements 
of the NPRM (79 FR 71037, December 1, 2014) and submit comments. We 
have determined that reopening the comment period for 30 days will not 
compromise the safety of these airplanes.

Extension of Comment Period

    The comment period for Docket No. FAA-2014-0780, Directorate 
Identifier 2014-NM-168-AD, has been revised. The comment period now 
closes March 2, 2015.
    No other part of the regulatory information has been changed; 
therefore, the NPRM (79 FR 71037, December 1, 2014) is not republished 
in the Federal Register.
