Airworthiness Directives; Viking Air Limited Airplanes, 53480-53482 [2015-21934]

Download as PDF 53480 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 172 / Friday, September 4, 2015 / Proposed Rules rmajette on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS potential impacts to stakeholders/ licensees from implementing any of the desired regulatory changes described in this draft regulatory basis (e.g., what would be a reasonable cost estimate for implementation of the cyber security programs, including startup and annual costs)? • The NRC staff is aware of licensee voluntary efforts to address cyber security. Is there additional information related to these efforts that would inform the NRC staff’s assessment or analysis? IV. Cumulative Effects of Regulation The Cumulative Effects of Regulation (CER) describes the challenges that licensees or other impacted entities (such as State agency partners) may face while implementing new regulatory positions, programs, and requirements (e.g., rules, generic letters, backfits, inspections). The CER is an organizational effectiveness challenge that results from a licensee or impacted entity implementing a number of complex positions, programs, or requirements within a limited implementation period and with available resources (which may include limited available expertise to address a specific issue). The NRC has implemented CER enhancements to the rulemaking process to facilitate public involvement throughout the rulemaking process. Therefore, the NRC is specifically requesting comment on the cumulative effects that may result from this proposed rulemaking. In developing comments on the draft regulatory basis, consider the following questions: (1) In light of any current or projected CER challenges, what should be a reasonable effective date, compliance date, or submittal date(s) from the time the final rule is published to the actual implementation of any new proposed requirements, including changes to programs, procedures, or the facility? (2) If current or projected CER challenges exist, what should be done to address this situation (e.g., if more time is required to implement the new requirements, what period of time would be sufficient, and why such a time frame is necessary)? (3) Do other regulatory actions (e.g., orders, generic communications, license amendment requests, and inspection findings of a generic nature) by NRC or other agencies influence the implementation of the potential proposed requirements? (4) Are there unintended consequences? Does the potential proposed action create conditions that would be contrary to the potential proposed action’s purpose and VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:58 Sep 03, 2015 Jkt 235001 objectives? If so, what are the consequences and how should they be addressed? Please provide information on the costs and benefits of the potential proposed action. This information will be used to support any regulatory analysis by the NRC. DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION V.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On July 28, 2015, a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) (80 FR 44892) was published in the Federal Register to apply to Viking Air Limited Model DHC–3 airplanes. That NPRM proposed to require installing additional wing inspection access panels and inspecting the wings using borescope and visual methods with corrective action as necessary. As published, the repetitive inspection column in ‘‘Table 1 of Paragraph (f)(3) of This AD—Inspection Schedule’’ contains data that when displayed makes it look as if the repetitive inspections only apply to the first condition, whereas when printed shows that it applies to all conditions. To correct this, we are including the data in each condition. Although no other part of the preamble or regulatory information has been corrected, we are publishing the entire NPRM (80 FR 44892, July 28, 2015) in the Federal Register. The last date for submitting comments to the NPRM (80 FR 44892, July 28, 2015) remains September 11, 2015. 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: ■ Viking Air Limited: Docket No. FAA–2015– 3073; Directorate Identifier 2015–CE– 017–AD. (a) Comments Due Date We must receive comments by September 11, 2015. The date as originally published in the NPRM (80 FR 44892, July 28, 2015). (b) Affected ADs None. (c) Applicability This AD applies to Viking Air Limited DHC–3 airplanes, all serial numbers, certificated in any category. (d) Subject Air Transport Association of America (ATA) Code 57: Wings. (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 reports of corrugation cracking found at various wing stations and on the main spar lower cap. We are issuing this proposed AD to detect cracking and correct as necessary to address the unsafe condition on these products. (f) Actions and Compliance Unless already done, do the following actions in paragraphs (f)(1) through (f)(5) of this AD: 53481 (1) Within 30 days after the effective date of this AD, determine the accumulated air time for each wing by contacting Technical Support at Viking Air Limited. You can find contact information for Viking Air Limited in paragraph (h) of this AD. (2) Within 30 days after the effective date of this AD, determine all installed supplemental type certificates (STC) or modifications affecting the wings. Based on the accumulated air time determined from paragraph (f)(1) of this AD and before the initial inspection required in paragraph (f)(3) of this AD, install access panels as follows: (i) If the airplane is free of STCs or any other modifications affecting the wings, install additional inspection access panels following the Accomplishment Instructions Part A of Viking DHC–3 Otter Service Bulletin No. V3/0002, Revision ‘‘C’’, dated April 30, 2014. (ii) If the airplane is fitted with STC SA2009NY (which can be found on the Internet at: http://rgl.faa.gov/Regulatory_ and_Guidance_Library/rgstc.nsf/0/F7309 B7D9B008C588625734F00730144?Open Document&Highlight=sa02009ny), incorporate additional inspection access panels following the Accomplishment Instructions of Viking Air Limited SB 3–STC (03–50)-001, Revision ‘‘NC’’, dated April 30, 2014. Note 1 to paragraph (f)(2)(ii) of this AD: STC SA03–50 would be the Canadian equivalent of the United States STC 2A2009NY. (iii) If there are other STCs or modifications affecting the wings the operator must contact the FAA to request an FAA-approved alternative method of compliance using the procedures in paragraph (g)(1) of this AD and 14 CFR 39.19. To develop these procedures, we recommend you contact the STC holder for guidance in developing substantiating data. (3) Based on the accumulated air time on the wings determined in paragraph (f)(1) of this AD, perform initial and repetitive borescope and visual inspections of both the left-hand and right-hand wing box following Part B of the Accomplishment Instructions of Viking DHC–3 Otter Service Bulletin V3/ 0002, Revision ‘‘C’’, dated April 30, 2014, using the inspection schedules specified in Table 1 of paragraph (f)(3) of this AD: TABLE 1 OF PARAGRAPH (F)(3) OF THIS AD—INSPECTION SCHEDULE rmajette on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS Effectivity Initial inspection Repetitive inspection If Viking Air Limited SB V3/0002, Revision ‘‘A’’, dated February 22, 2013; or Viking Air Limited SB V3/0002, Revision ‘‘B’’, dated July 3, 2013; were complied with prior to the effective date of this AD. If, as of the effective date of this AD, the airplane has less than 31,200 wing air time hours. The initial inspection is not required since the inspection was accomplished while complying with Revision ‘‘A’’ or ‘‘B’’ of Viking Air Limited SB V3/0002. Repetitively inspect not to exceed every 1,600 wing air time hours accumulated after the last inspection or 2,100 flight cycles after the last inspection, whichever occurs first. Inspect within 800 wing air time hours after the effective date of this AD, or within 6 months after the effective date of this AD, whichever occurs first. Inspect upon or before accumulating 32,000 wing air time hours or within 6 months after the effective date of this AD, whichever occurs first. Repetitively inspect not to exceed every 1,600 wing air time hours accumulated after the last inspection or 2,100 flight cycles after the last inspection, whichever occurs first. Repetitively inspect not to exceed every 1,600 wing air time hours accumulated after the last inspection or 2,100 flight cycles after the last inspection, whichever occurs first.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On July 28, 2015, a notice of proposed 
rulemaking (NPRM) (80 FR 44892) was published in the Federal Register 
to apply to Viking Air Limited Model DHC-3 airplanes. That NPRM 
proposed to require installing additional wing inspection access panels 
and inspecting the wings using borescope and visual methods with 
corrective action as necessary.
    As published, the repetitive inspection column in ``Table 1 of 
Paragraph (f)(3) of This AD--Inspection Schedule'' contains data that 
when displayed makes it look as if the repetitive inspections only 
apply to the first condition, whereas when printed shows that it 
applies to all conditions. To correct this, we are including the data 
in each condition.
    Although no other part of the preamble or regulatory information 
has been corrected, we are publishing the entire NPRM (80 FR 44892, 
July 28, 2015) in the Federal Register.
    The last date for submitting comments to the NPRM (80 FR 44892, 
July 28, 2015) remains September 11, 2015.

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

Viking Air Limited: Docket No. FAA-2015-3073; Directorate Identifier 
2015-CE-017-AD.

(a) Comments Due Date

    We must receive comments by September 11, 2015. The date as 
originally published in the NPRM (80 FR 44892, July 28, 2015).

(b) Affected ADs

    None.

(c) Applicability

    This AD applies to Viking Air Limited DHC-3 airplanes, all 
serial numbers, certificated in any category.

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association of America (ATA) Code 57: Wings.

(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 reports of 
corrugation cracking found at various wing stations and on the main 
spar lower cap. We are issuing this proposed AD to detect cracking 
and correct as necessary to address the unsafe condition on these 
products.

(f) Actions and Compliance

    Unless already done, do the following actions in paragraphs 
(f)(1) through (f)(5) of this AD:
    (1) Within 30 days after the effective date of this AD, 
determine the accumulated air time for each wing by contacting 
Technical Support at Viking Air Limited. You can find contact 
information for Viking Air Limited in paragraph (h) of this AD.
    (2) Within 30 days after the effective date of this AD, 
determine all installed supplemental type certificates (STC) or 
modifications affecting the wings. Based on the accumulated air time 
determined from paragraph (f)(1) of this AD and before the initial 
inspection required in paragraph (f)(3) of this AD, install access 
panels as follows:
    (i) If the airplane is free of STCs or any other modifications 
affecting the wings, install additional inspection access panels 
following the Accomplishment Instructions Part A of Viking DHC-3 
Otter Service Bulletin No. V3/0002, Revision ``C'', dated April 30, 
2014.
    (ii) If the airplane is fitted with STC SA2009NY (which can be 
found on the Internet at: http://rgl.faa.gov/Regulatory_and_Guidance_Library/rgstc.nsf/0/F7309B7D9B008C588625734F00730144?OpenDocument&Highlight=sa02009ny), 
incorporate additional inspection access panels following the 
Accomplishment Instructions of Viking Air Limited SB 3-STC (03-50)-
001, Revision ``NC'', dated April 30, 2014.
    Note 1 to paragraph (f)(2)(ii) of this AD: STC SA03-50 would be 
the Canadian equivalent of the United States STC 2A2009NY.
    (iii) If there are other STCs or modifications affecting the 
wings the operator must contact the FAA to request an FAA-approved 
alternative method of compliance using the procedures in paragraph 
(g)(1) of this AD and 14 CFR 39.19. To develop these procedures, we 
recommend you contact the STC holder for guidance in developing 
substantiating data.

    (4) If the total flight cycles have not been kept, multiply the 
total number of airplane hours time-in-service (TIS) by 2 to 
calculate the cycles. For the purpose of this AD, some examples are 
below:
    (i) .5 hour TIS x 2 = 1 cycle; and
    (ii) 200 hours TIS x 2 = 400 cycles.
