SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 to adding an AD that would apply to PILATUS Aircraft Ltd. Model PC–7 airplanes. The NPRM was published in the Federal Register on January 29, 2015 (80 FR 4810). The NPRM proposed to correct an unsafe condition for the specified products and was based on mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) E:\FR\FM\14APR1.SGM 14APR1 19882 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 71 / Tuesday, April 14, 2015 / Rules and Regulations originated by an aviation authority of another country. The MCAI states: This Airworthiness Directive (AD) is prompted due to an unprotected routing of the oil cooler inlet-hose close to the air conditioning compressor clutch plate. If a spring on the compressor clutch plate shears it could lead to a damage of the oil hose and the engine oil can spill into the engine bay. In order to correct and control the situation, this AD requires the installation of a cover assembly which will be mounted on the attachment points of the compressor. The MCAI can be found in the AD docket on the Internet at: http:// www.regulations.gov/ #!documentDetail;D=FAA-2014-10020002. Comments We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM (80 FR 4810, January 29, 2015) 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 (80 FR 4810, January 29, 2015) for correcting the unsafe condition; and • Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was already proposed in the NPRM (80 FR 4810, January 29, 2015). Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51 We reviewed PILATUS Aircraft Ltd. PILATUS PC–7 Service Bulletin No: 21– 012, dated November 4, 2014. The service information describes actions for installation of a cover assembly (between the compressor clutch plate and the oil hose) to protect the oil hose. This information is reasonably available at http://www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating Docket No. FAA–2015–0132, or see ADDRESSES for other ways to access this service information. asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with RULES Costs of Compliance We estimate that this AD will affect 10 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 $1,250 per product. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:01 Apr 13, 2015 Jkt 235001 Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of the AD on U.S. operators to be $17,600, or $1,760 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. Examining the AD Docket You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at http:// www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating Docket No. FAA–2015– 0132; or in person at the Docket Management Facility between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. The AD docket contains the NPRM, the regulatory evaluation, any comments received, and other information. The street address for the Docket Office (telephone (800) 647– 5527) is in the ADDRESSES section.

Notice of deviation from drawbridge regulations. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the Senator Ted Hickey (Leon C. Simon Blvd./Seabrook) bascule bridge across the Inner Harbor Navigation Canal, mile 4.6, at New Orleans, Louisiana. The deviation is necessary to ensure the safety of participants in the Ochsner Ironman 70.3 New Orleans event as they travel across the bridge as part of the bike and run courses. This deviation allows the bridge to remain in the closed-tonavigation position continuously during the event. DATES: This deviation is effective from 8 a.m. through 5 p.m. on Sunday, April 19, 2015. ADDRESSES: The docket for this deviation, [USCG–2015–0258] is SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 19883 available at http://www.regulations.gov.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: If you have questions on this temporary deviation, call or email Geri Robinson, Bridge Administration Branch, Coast Guard, telephone (504) 671–2128, email geri.a.robinson@uscg.mil. If you have questions on viewing the docket, call Cheryl F. Collins, Program Manager, Docket Operations, telephone 202–366– 9826. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Coast Guard received a request for a temporary deviation for the Senator Ted Hickey (Leon C. Simon Blvd./Seabrook) crossing the Inner Harbor Navigation Canal, mile 4.6, in New Orleans, Louisiana to remain in the closed-tonavigation position for a nine-hour period during the Ochsner Ironman 70.3, on April 19, 2015. The bridge owner also received a request to close the bridge to all traffic during the Ironman event, which was approved. The bridge provides 45 feet in the closed-to-navigation position above mean sea level. Currently, according to 33 CFR 117.458(c), the draw of the Senator Ted Hickey (Leon C. Simon Blvd./Seabrook), mile 4.6, shall open on signal from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.; except the bridge need not open from 7 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. From 8 p.m. to 7 a.m., the draw shall open on signal if at least two hours notice is given. This deviation allows the draw span of the bridge to remain closed to navigation between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Sunday, April 19, 2015, while the Ironman participants travel across the bridge as part of the race course. Navigation on the waterway consists mainly of tugs with tows. As a result of coordination between the Coast Guard and the waterway users, it has been determined that this closure will not have a significant effect on these vessels. The Coast Guard will inform users through the Local and Broadcast Notice to Mariners of the closure period. There is an alternate route available via the Rigolets Pass to vessel traffic. Vessels that can pass under the bridge in the closed-to-navigation position can do so at any time. For the duration of the E:\FR\FM\14APR1.SGM 14APR1

Airworthiness Directives; Pilatus Aircraft Ltd. Airplanes

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

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for PILATUS 
Aircraft Ltd. Model PC-7 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 the potential for a spring on the air conditioning 
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 require actions to address the unsafe condition on these 
products.

DATES: This AD is effective May 19, 2015.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of a certain publication listed in the AD as of May 19, 2015.

ADDRESSES: You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating Docket No. FAA-2015-

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion

    We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR 
part 39 to adding an AD that would apply to PILATUS Aircraft Ltd. Model 
PC-7 airplanes. The NPRM was published in the Federal Register on 
January 29, 2015 (80 FR 4810). The NPRM proposed to correct an unsafe 
condition for the specified products and was based on mandatory 
continuing airworthiness information (MCAI)

[[Page 19882]]

originated by an aviation authority of another country. The MCAI 
states:

    This Airworthiness Directive (AD) is prompted due to an 
unprotected routing of the oil cooler inlet-hose close to the air 
conditioning compressor clutch plate.
    If a spring on the compressor clutch plate shears it could lead 
to a damage of the oil hose and the engine oil can spill into the 
engine bay.
    In order to correct and control the situation, this AD requires 
the installation of a cover assembly which will be mounted on the 
attachment points of the compressor.

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 (80 FR 4810, January 29, 
2015) 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 (80 FR 4810, January 29, 2015) for correcting the unsafe 
condition; and
     Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was 
already proposed in the NPRM (80 FR 4810, January 29, 2015).

Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51

    We reviewed PILATUS Aircraft Ltd. PILATUS PC-7 Service Bulletin No: 
21-012, dated November 4, 2014. The service information describes 
actions for installation of a cover assembly (between the compressor 
clutch plate and the oil hose) to protect the oil hose. This 
information is reasonably available at http://www.regulations.gov by 
searching for and locating Docket No. FAA-2015-0132, or see ADDRESSES 
for other ways to access this service information.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this AD will affect 10 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 $1,250 per 
product.
    Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of the AD on U.S. 
operators to be $17,600, or $1,760 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

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 AD:

2015-07-04 Pilatus Aircraft Ltd.: Amendment 39-18132; Docket No. 
FAA-2015-0132; Directorate Identifier 2014-CE-038-AD.

(a) Effective Date

    This airworthiness directive (AD) becomes effective May 19, 
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 makes 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 air conditioning 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 May 19, 2015 
(the effective date of this AD), install a cover assembly on the 
attachment points of the compressor following the Accomplishment 
Instructions

[[Page 19883]]

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

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.
    (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

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
