Download as PDF asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with RULES Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 60 / Monday, March 30, 2015 / Rules and Regulations This rule increases the quantity of Scotch spearmint oil that handlers may purchase from or handle on behalf of producers during the 2014–2015 marketing year, which ends on May 31, 2015. The 2014–2015 Scotch spearmint oil salable quantity was initially established at 1,149,030 pounds and the allotment percentage initially set at 55 percent. This rule increases the Scotch spearmint oil salable quantity to 1,984,423 pounds and the allotment percentage to 95 percent. The Committee reached its decision to recommend an increase in the salable quantity and allotment percentage for Scotch spearmint oil after careful consideration of all available information. With the increase, the Committee believes that the industry will be able to satisfactorily meet the current market demand for this class of spearmint oil. This rule amends the salable quantities and allotment percentages previously established in § 985.233. Authority for this action is provided in §§ 985.50, 985.51, and 985.52 of the order. In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35), the order’s information collection requirements have been previously approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and assigned OMB No. 0581–0178, Vegetable and Specialty Crop Marketing Orders. No changes in those requirements as a result of this action are necessary. Should any changes become necessary, they would be submitted to OMB for approval. This rule will not impose any additional reporting or recordkeeping requirements on either small or large spearmint oil handlers. As with all Federal marketing order programs, reports and forms are periodically reviewed to reduce information requirements and duplication by industry and public sector agencies. In addition, USDA has not identified any relevant Federal rules that duplicate, overlap, or conflict with this rule. Further, the Committee’s meeting was widely publicized throughout the spearmint oil industry and all interested persons were invited to attend the meeting and participate in Committee deliberations. Like all Committee meetings, the September 11, 2014, meeting was a public meeting and all entities, both large and small, were able to express their views on this issue. Comments on the interim rule were required to be received on or before December 30, 2014. No comments were received. Therefore, for the reasons given in the interim rule, we are VerDate Sep<11>2014 22:39 Mar 27, 2015 Jkt 235001 adopting the interim rule as a final rule, without change. To view the interim rule, go to: http://www.regulations.gov/#!document Detail;D=AMS-FV-13-0087-0003. This action also affirms information contained in the interim rule concerning Executive Orders 12866, 12988, 13175, and 13563; the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35); and the EGov Act (44 U.S.C. 101). After consideration of all relevant material presented, it is found that finalizing the interim rule, without change, as published in the Federal Register (79 FR 64657, October 31, 2014) will tend to effectuate the declared policy of the Act. List of Subjects in 7 CFR Part 985 Marketing agreements, Oils and fats, Reporting and recordkeeping requirements, Spearmint oil. Accordingly, the interim rule that amended 7 CFR part 985 and that was published at 79 FR 64657 on October 31, 2014, is adopted as a final rule, without change. Dated: March 24, 2015. Rex A.

RIN 2120–AA64 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Federal Aviation Administration 14 CFR Part 39 Airworthiness Directives; Pacific Aerospace Limited Airplanes Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of Transportation (DOT). ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Pacific Aerospace Limited (PAL) Model 750XL airplanes. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued 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 PAL Model 750XL airplanes manufactured with only one attitude indicator. A second attitude indicator is required for flights under instrument flight rules. We SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Discussion We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 to add an AD that would apply to Pacific Aerospace Limited Model 750XL airplanes. The NPRM was published in the Federal Register on December 8, 2014 (79 FR 72564). The NPRM proposed to correct an unsafe condition for the specified products and was based on mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country. The MCAI states: This AD with effective date 10 November 2014 is prompted by a recent determination that certain PAL750XL aircraft were inadvertently manufactured with instrument panels with only one Attitude Indicator (AI). A second AI is required for PAL750XL operating under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR). E:\FR\FM\30MRR1.SGM 30MRR1 16554 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 60 / Monday, March 30, 2015 / Rules and Regulations The AD mandates the installation of either a second AI, or the enablement of Reversionary Attitude mode in the Sandel Electronic Horizontal Situation Indicator (EHSI), if fitted, when operating under IFR. The MCAI can be found in the AD docket on the Internet at: http://www. regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D= FAA-2014-1002-0002. Comments We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM (79 FR 72564, December 8, 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 the 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 72564, December 8, 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 72564, December 8, 2014). Relative Service Information Under 1 CFR part 51 We reviewed Pacific Aerospace Limited Mandatory Service Bulletin PACSB/XL/074, Issue 2, dated November 4, 2014. The service bulletin describes procedures for installing a second attitude indicator or enabling the reversionary mode on a Sandel SN3500 electronic horizontal situation indicator (EHSI), if installed, whichever is applicable. This service information is reasonably available; see ADDRESSES for ways to access this service information. asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with RULES Costs of Compliance We estimate that this AD will affect 17 products of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it would 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 would cost about $3,500 per product. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of the AD on U.S. operators to be $68,170, or $4,010 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. VerDate Sep<11>2014 22:39 Mar 27, 2015 Jkt 235001 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 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.

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: PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 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: ■ 2015–06–09 Pacific Aerospace Limited: Amendment 39–18127; Docket No. FAA–2014–1002; Directorate Identifier 2014–CE–033–AD. (a) Effective Date This airworthiness directive (AD) becomes effective May 4, 2015. (b) Affected ADs None. (c) Applicability This AD applies to Pacific Aerospace Limited Model 750XL airplanes, all serial numbers, certificated in any category. (d) Subject Air Transport Association of America (ATA) Code 34: Navigation. (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 Pacific Aerospace Limited Model 750XL airplanes manufactured with instrument panels with only one attitude indicator. A second attitude indicator is required to operate under instrument flight rules (IFR). A reversionary attitude indicator reduces the probability of a single point failure, which could result in loss of control. We are issuing this proposed AD to install a reversionary attitude indicator before operating in IFR conditions. (f) Actions and Compliance Unless already done, before the next flight requiring instrument flight rules (IFR) after the effective date of this AD, install a second attitude indicator into the right hand instrument panel or enable the reversionary mode on a Sandel SN3500 electronic horizontal situation indicator (EHSI), if installed, whichever is applicable, following the ACCOMPLISHMENT INSTRUCTIONS in Pacific Aerospace Limited Mandatory Service Bulletin PACSB/XL/074, Issue 2, 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.

Airworthiness Directives; Pacific Aerospace Limited Airplanes

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

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Pacific 
Aerospace Limited (PAL) Model 750XL airplanes. This AD results from 
mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued 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 PAL Model 750XL airplanes manufactured with only one 
attitude indicator. A second attitude indicator is required for flights 
under instrument flight rules. We are issuing this AD to require 
actions to address the unsafe condition on these products.

DATES: This AD is effective May 4, 2015.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of a certain publication listed in the AD as of May 4, 2015.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Discussion

    We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR 
part 39 to add an AD that would apply to Pacific Aerospace Limited 
Model 750XL airplanes. The NPRM was published in the Federal Register 
on December 8, 2014 (79 FR 72564). The NPRM proposed to correct an 
unsafe condition for the specified products and was based on mandatory 
continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation 
authority of another country. The MCAI states:

    This AD with effective date 10 November 2014 is prompted by a 
recent determination that certain PAL750XL aircraft were 
inadvertently manufactured with instrument panels with only one 
Attitude Indicator (AI). A second AI is required for PAL750XL 
operating under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR).

[[Page 16554]]

    The AD mandates the installation of either a second AI, or the 
enablement of Reversionary Attitude mode in the Sandel Electronic 
Horizontal Situation Indicator (EHSI), if fitted, when operating 
under IFR.

The MCAI can be found in the AD docket on the Internet at: http://www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=FAA-2014-1002-0002.

Comments

    We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing 
this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM (79 FR 72564, December 8, 
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 the 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 72564, December 8, 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 72564, December 8, 2014).

Relative Service Information Under 1 CFR part 51

    We reviewed Pacific Aerospace Limited Mandatory Service Bulletin 
PACSB/XL/074, Issue 2, dated November 4, 2014. The service bulletin 
describes procedures for installing a second attitude indicator or 
enabling the reversionary mode on a Sandel SN3500 electronic horizontal 
situation indicator (EHSI), if installed, whichever is applicable. This 
service information is reasonably available; see ADDRESSES for ways to 
access this service information.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this AD will affect 17 products of U.S. registry. 
We also estimate that it would 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 would cost about $3,500 per 
product.
    Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of the AD on U.S. 
operators to be $68,170, or $4,010 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 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.

Sec.  39.13  [Amended]

2. The FAA amends Sec.  39.13 by adding the following new AD:

2015-06-09 Pacific Aerospace Limited: Amendment 39-18127; Docket No. 
FAA-2014-1002; Directorate Identifier 2014-CE-033-AD.

(a) Effective Date

    This airworthiness directive (AD) becomes effective May 4, 2015.

(b) Affected ADs

    None.

(c) Applicability

    This AD applies to Pacific Aerospace Limited Model 750XL 
airplanes, all serial numbers, certificated in any category.

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association of America (ATA) Code 34: Navigation.

(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 Pacific 
Aerospace Limited Model 750XL airplanes manufactured with instrument 
panels with only one attitude indicator. A second attitude indicator 
is required to operate under instrument flight rules (IFR). A 
reversionary attitude indicator reduces the probability of a single 
point failure, which could result in loss of control. We are issuing 
this proposed AD to install a reversionary attitude indicator before 
operating in IFR conditions.

(f) Actions and Compliance

    Unless already done, before the next flight requiring instrument 
flight rules (IFR) after the effective date of this AD, install a 
second attitude indicator into the right hand instrument panel or 
enable the reversionary mode on a Sandel SN3500 electronic 
horizontal situation indicator (EHSI), if installed, whichever is 
applicable, following the ACCOMPLISHMENT INSTRUCTIONS in Pacific 
Aerospace Limited Mandatory Service Bulletin PACSB/XL/074, Issue 2, 
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

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 
(or their delegated agent). You are required to assure the product 
is airworthy before it is returned to service.
