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 all Przedsiebiorstwo DoswiadczalnoProdukcyjne Szybownictwa ‘‘PZLBielsko’’ Model SZD–50–3 ‘‘Puchacz’’ sailplanes. The NPRM was published in the Federal Register on April 17, 2015 (80 FR 21191). 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: An occurrence was reported involving a SZD–50–3 ‘‘Puchacz’’ sailplane, where a rudder cable fitting block, located in the forward part of the fuselage, detached after application of a high load on the steering pedal during spin recovery operation. Subsequent investigations determined that the failure was either caused by a manufacturing deficiency or originated by a crack. This condition, if not detected and corrected, could lead to further cases of rudder cable fitting block detachment, resulting in reduced control of the sailplane. To address this unsafe condition, Allstar PZL issued Service Bulletin (SB) No. BE– 063/SZD–50–3/2014, to provide inspection and reinforcement instructions. For the reasons described above, this AD requires accomplishment of a one-time PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 inspection of both (right hand (RH) and left hand (LH)) rudder cable fitting blocks to verify proper attachment to the fuselage shell and, depending on finding(s), a repair. This AD also requires reinforcement of the affected structural area. The MCAI can be found in the AD docket on the Internet at: http:// www.regulations.gov/ #!documentDetail;D=FAA-2015-09510002. Comments We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM (80 FR 21191, April 17, 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 21191, April 17, 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 21191, April 17, 2015). Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51 We reviewed Allstar PZL Glider Service Bulletin BE–063/SZD–50–3/ 2014 ‘‘Puchacz’’, dated December 14, 2014. The service bulletin describes procedures for inspecting the area around the left-hand and right-hand rudder cable fitting blocks for cracks and detachment and making all necessary repairs. This service information is reasonably available because the interested parties have access to it through their normal course of business or by the means identified in the ADDRESSES section of this AD. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this AD will affect 5 products of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it will take about 1 workhour per product to comply with the inspection requirement of this AD. The average labor rate is $85 per work-hour. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of the inspection requirement of this AD on U.S. operators to be $425, or $85 per product. E:\FR\FM\29JNR1.SGM 29JNR1 36912 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 124 / Monday, June 29, 2015 / Rules and Regulations In addition, we estimate that it will take about 2 work-hours per product to comply with the modification requirement of this AD and will require parts costing $100, for a cost of $270 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. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES 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– 0951; or in person at the Docket Management Facility between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays.

Airworthiness Directives; Przedsiebiorstwo Doswiadczalno-
Produkcyjne Szybownictwa ``PZL-Bielsko'' Sailplanes

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

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all 
Przedsiebiorstwo Doswiadczalno-Produkcyjne Szybownictwa ``PZL-Bielsko'' 
Model SZD-50-3 ``Puchacz'' sailplanes. 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 detachment of the rudder cable fitting block from the 
fuselage. We are issuing this AD to require actions to address the 
unsafe condition on these products.

DATES: This AD is effective August 3, 2015.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of a certain publication listed in the AD as of August 3, 
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 all Przedsiebiorstwo 
Doswiadczalno-Produkcyjne Szybownictwa ``PZL-Bielsko'' Model SZD-50-3 
``Puchacz'' sailplanes. The NPRM was published in the Federal Register 
on April 17, 2015 (80 FR 21191). 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:

    An occurrence was reported involving a SZD-50-3 ``Puchacz'' 
sailplane, where a rudder cable fitting block, located in the 
forward part of the fuselage, detached after application of a high 
load on the steering pedal during spin recovery operation. 
Subsequent investigations determined that the failure was either 
caused by a manufacturing deficiency or originated by a crack.
    This condition, if not detected and corrected, could lead to 
further cases of rudder cable fitting block detachment, resulting in 
reduced control of the sailplane.
    To address this unsafe condition, Allstar PZL issued Service 
Bulletin (SB) No. BE-063/SZD-50-3/2014, to provide inspection and 
reinforcement instructions.
    For the reasons described above, this AD requires accomplishment 
of a one-time inspection of both (right hand (RH) and left hand 
(LH)) rudder cable fitting blocks to verify proper attachment to the 
fuselage shell and, depending on finding(s), a repair. This AD also 
requires reinforcement of the affected structural area.

The MCAI can be found in the AD docket on the Internet at: http://www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=FAA-2015-0951-0002.

Comments

    We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing 
this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM (80 FR 21191, April 17, 
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 21191, April 17, 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 21191, April 17, 2015).

Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51

    We reviewed Allstar PZL Glider Service Bulletin BE-063/SZD-50-3/
2014 ``Puchacz'', dated December 14, 2014. The service bulletin 
describes procedures for inspecting the area around the left-hand and 
right-hand rudder cable fitting blocks for cracks and detachment and 
making all necessary repairs. This service information is reasonably 
available because the interested parties have access to it through 
their normal course of business or by the means identified in the 
ADDRESSES section of this AD.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this AD will affect 5 products of U.S. registry. 
We also estimate that it will take about 1 work-hour per product to 
comply with the inspection requirement of this AD. The average labor 
rate is $85 per work-hour.
    Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of the inspection 
requirement of this AD on U.S. operators to be $425, or $85 per 
product.

[[Page 36912]]

    In addition, we estimate that it will take about 2 work-hours per 
product to comply with the modification requirement of this AD and will 
require parts costing $100, for a cost of $270 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.

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:

2015-13-03 Przedsiebiorstwo Doswiadczalno-Produkcyjne Szybownictwa 
``PZL-Bielsko'': Amendment 39-18190; Docket No. FAA-2015-0951; 
Directorate Identifier 2015-CE-007-AD.

(a) Effective Date

    This airworthiness directive (AD) becomes effective August 3, 
2015.

(b) Affected ADs

    None.

(c) Applicability

    This AD applies to Przedsiebiorstwo Doswiadczalno-Produkcyjne 
Szybownictwa ``PZL-Bielsko'' Model SZD-50-3 ``Puchacz'' sailplanes, 
all serial numbers, certificated in any category.

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association of America (ATA) Code 27: Flight 
Controls.

(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 detachment of 
the rudder cable fitting block from the fuselage. We are issuing 
this AD to prevent detachment of the rudder cable fitting block from 
the fuselage, which if not detected and corrected, could result in 
reduced control.

(f) Actions and Compliance

    Unless already done, do the actions in paragraphs (f)(1) through 
(f)(3) of this AD:
    (1) Within 30 days after August 13, 2015 (the effective date of 
this AD), inspect the area around both the left-hand (LH) and the 
right-hand (RH) rudder cable fitting blocks following paragraph 3.1. 
of the INSTRUCTIONS section in Allstar PZL Glider Service Bulletin 
BE-063/SZD-50-3/2014 ``Puchacz'', dated December 14, 2014.
    (2) If, during the inspection required in paragraph (f)(1) of 
this AD, any crack or fitting block detachment is found, before 
further flight, repair and reinforce the attachment of both the LH 
and RH rudder cable fitting blocks. Do this repair and reinforcement 
following paragraph 3.2. of the INSTRUCTIONS section in Allstar PZL 
Glider Service Bulletin BE-063/SZD-50-3/2014 ``Puchacz'', dated 
December 14, 2014.
    (3) Unless already done following the requirement in paragraph 
(f)(2) of this AD, within the next 12 months after August 3, 2015 
(the effective date of this AD), reinforce the attachment of both 
the LH and RH rudder cable fitting blocks. Do this reinforcement 
following paragraph 3.2. of the INSTRUCTIONS section in Allstar PZL 
Glider Service Bulletin BE-063/SZD-50-3/2014 ``Puchacz'', dated 
December 14, 2014.
