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 Dassault Aviation Model MYSTERE–FALCON 50 airplanes. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on August 12, 2014 (79 FR 47031). The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the European Union, has issued EASA Airworthiness Directive 2014–0024, dated January 23, 2014 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition on certain Dassault Aviation Model MYSTERE–FALCON 50 airplanes. The MCAI states: One operator experienced an untimely and intermittent indication of slat activity on his aeroplane. The results of the subsequent investigation revealed that electrical wiring under the glare shield and behind the flight deck front panel was chafing with hardware and was short-circuited to ground. This situation may have resulted from an incorrect installation of the wiring during a previous maintenance action in the area. A design review identified a lack of protection of the affected electrical wiring bundle, which would have prevented damage caused by chafing with aeroplane structural parts. This condition, if not corrected, might lead to an electrical short circuit and generation of smoke, possibly affecting operation of systems and resulting in reduced control of the aeroplane. To address this potential unsafe condition, Dassault Aviation issued [service bulletin] SB F50–530, providing instructions for installation of a protective plate on the electrical wiring. For the reasons described above, this [EASA] AD requires modification of the aeroplane by installing a protective plate on the electrical wiring. You may examine the MCAI in the AD docket on the Internet at http:// www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail; D=FAA-2014-0527-0002. Comments We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM (79 FR 47031, August 12, 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, with minor editorial changes. We have determined that these minor changes: • Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the NPRM (79 FR 47031, August 12, 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 47031, August 12, 2014). Related Service Information We reviewed Dassault Service Bulletin F50–530, dated November 12, 2013. The service information describes procedures for installing two protective plates between the electrical wiring under the glare shield and the engine fire pull handles. You can find this information at http:// www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating Docket No. FAA–2014– 0527. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this AD affects 250 airplanes of U.S. registry. We estimate the following costs to comply with this AD: ESTIMATED COSTS Action Labor cost Parts cost Cost per product Cost on U.S. operators Installation ....................................................... 26 work-hours × $85 per hour = $2,210 ........ $96 $2,306 $576,500 rljohnson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:34 Jan 29, 2015 Jkt 235001 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 PO 00000 Frm 00033 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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 E:\FR\FM\30JAR1.SGM 30JAR1 5036 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 20 / Friday, January 30, 2015 / Rules and Regulations 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

    We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR 
part 39 by adding an AD that would apply to certain Dassault Aviation 
Model MYSTERE-FALCON 50 airplanes. The NPRM published in the Federal 
Register on August 12, 2014 (79 FR 47031).
    The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical 
Agent for the Member States of the European Union, has issued EASA 
Airworthiness Directive 2014-0024, dated January 23, 2014 (referred to 
after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or 
``the MCAI''), to correct an unsafe condition on certain Dassault 
Aviation Model MYSTERE-FALCON 50 airplanes. The MCAI states:

    One operator experienced an untimely and intermittent indication 
of slat activity on his aeroplane. The results of the subsequent 
investigation revealed that electrical wiring under the glare shield 
and behind the flight deck front panel was chafing with hardware and 
was short-circuited to ground. This situation may have resulted from 
an incorrect installation of the wiring during a previous 
maintenance action in the area. A design review identified a lack of 
protection of the affected electrical wiring bundle, which would 
have prevented damage caused by chafing with aeroplane structural 
parts.
    This condition, if not corrected, might lead to an electrical 
short circuit and generation of smoke, possibly affecting operation 
of systems and resulting in reduced control of the aeroplane.
    To address this potential unsafe condition, Dassault Aviation 
issued [service bulletin] SB F50-530, providing instructions for 
installation of a protective plate on the electrical wiring.
    For the reasons described above, this [EASA] AD requires 
modification of the aeroplane by installing a protective plate on 
the electrical wiring.

    You may examine the MCAI in the AD docket on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=FAA-2014-0527-0002.

Comments

    We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing 
this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM (79 FR 47031, August 12, 
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, with minor 
editorial changes. We have determined that these minor changes:
     Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the 
NPRM (79 FR 47031, August 12, 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 47031, August 12, 2014).

Related Service Information

    We reviewed Dassault Service Bulletin F50-530, dated November 12, 
2013. The service information describes procedures for installing two 
protective plates between the electrical wiring under the glare shield 
and the engine fire pull handles. You can find this information at

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

    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);

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):

2014-02-04 Dassault Aviation: Amendment 39-18071. Docket No. FAA-
2014-0527; Directorate Identifier 2014-NM-045-AD.

(a) Effective Date

    This AD becomes effective March 6, 2015.

(b) Affected ADs

    None.

(c) Applicability

    This AD applies to Dassault Aviation Model MYSTERE-FALCON 50 
airplanes, certificated in any category, as identified in paragraphs 
(c)(1) and (c)(2) of this AD.
    (1) Airplanes with manufacturer serial numbers 5, 7, 27, 30, 34, 
36, 78, 132, and 251 through 352 inclusive.
    (2) Airplanes with manufacturer serial numbers 2 through 250 
inclusive, having Honeywell (formerly Allied Signal, Garrett 
AiResearch) TFE731-40-1C engines modified by Dassault Aviation 
Service Bulletin F50-280.

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 24, Electrical 
Power.

(e) Reason

    This AD was prompted by a report of an untimely and intermittent 
indication of slat activity due to chafing of the electrical wiring 
under the glare shield and behind the flight deck front panel. We 
are issuing this AD to prevent chafing of the electrical wiring, 
which could result in a short circuit and generation of smoke in the 
cockpit, potential loss of several functions essential for safe 
flight, and consequent reduced controllability of the airplane.

(f) Compliance

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

(g) Install Protective Plates

    Within 74 months after the effective date of this AD, install 
two Rilsan protective plates between the glare shield electrical 
wiring and the engine fire pull handles, in accordance with the 
Accomplishment Instructions of Dassault Service Bulletin F50-530, 
dated November 12, 2013.
