ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all ATR—GIE Avions de Transport ´ Regional Model ATR42 and ATR72 airplanes. This AD was prompted by new occurrences of certain cracked main landing gear (MLG) rear hinge pins. This AD requires identifying the serial number and part number of the MLG rear hinge pins, and replacing pins or the MLG if necessary. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct cracked rear hinge pins, which could lead to MLG structural failure, possibly resulting in collapse of the MLG and consequent injury to the occupants of the airplane. DATES: This AD becomes effective December 29, 2015. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in this AD as of December 29, 2015.

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 all ATR—GIE Avions de ´ Transport Regional Model ATR42 and ATR72 airplanes. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on April 10, 2015 (80 FR 19246). The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the European Union, has issued EASA Airworthiness Directive 2014–0074, dated March 21, 2014 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for all ATR—GIE ´ Avions de Transport Regional Model ATR42 and ATR72 airplanes. The MCAI states: mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with RULES Prompted by cases of rupture of Main Landing Gear (MLG) rear hinge pin part number (P/N) D61000 encountered in service in 1994 and 1996, DGAC France issued [an] AD * * * for ATR 42 aeroplanes and [another]AD * * * for ATR 72 aeroplanes to require inspection and, depending on findings, corrective action. Since those [French] ADs were issued, new occurrences of cracked rear hinge pin P/N D61000 were reported on ATR72 MLG. The result of subsequent investigation revealed that the affected pins were subjected to a non-detected thermal abuse done in production during grinding process. Analysis also showed that other MLG pin P/N’s could be affected by the same nonconformity. This condition, if not detected and corrected, could lead to MLG structural failure, possibly resulting in collapse of the MLG and consequently injury to the occupants of the aeroplane. For the reasons described above, this [EASA] AD requires inspection and, depending on findings, replacement of affected pins. We reviewed the relevant data and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting this 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 19246, April 10, 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 19246, April 10, 2015). Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51 Messier-Bugatti-Dowty has issued the following service information, which describes procedures for inspecting the MLG hinge pin. • Service Bulletin 631–32–213, dated December 16, 2013. • Service Bulletin 631–32–214, dated January 13, 2014. • Service Bulletin 631–32–215, dated January 13, 2014. • Service Bulletin 631–32–216, Revision 1, dated December 17, 2013. • Service Bulletin 631–32–219, dated March 3, 2014. • Service Bulletin 631–32–220, dated March 3, 2014. 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 You may examine the MCAI in the AD docket on the Internet at http:// www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail; D=FAA-2015-0682-0002. We estimate that this AD affects 81 airplanes of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it will take about 8 work-hours per product to comply with the basic requirements of this AD. The average labor rate is $85 per work-hour. Required parts will cost about $16,000 per product. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this AD on U.S. operators to be $1,351,080, or $16,680 per product. According to the manufacturer, some of the costs of this AD may be covered under warranty, thereby reducing the cost impact on affected individuals. We do not control warranty coverage for affected individuals. As a result, we have included all costs in our cost estimate. Comments Authority for This Rulemaking We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM (80 FR 19246, April 10, 2015) or on the determination of the cost to the public. 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. VerDate Sep<11>2014 23:14 Nov 23, 2015 Jkt 238001 PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 73097 ‘‘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 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 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.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all 
ATR--GIE Avions de Transport R[eacute]gional Model ATR42 and ATR72 
airplanes. This AD was prompted by new occurrences of certain cracked 
main landing gear (MLG) rear hinge pins. This AD requires identifying 
the serial number and part number of the MLG rear hinge pins, and 
replacing pins or the MLG if necessary. We are issuing this AD to 
detect and correct cracked rear hinge pins, which could lead to MLG 
structural failure, possibly resulting in collapse of the MLG and 
consequent injury to the occupants of the airplane.

DATES: This AD becomes effective December 29, 2015. The Director of the 
Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain 
publications listed in this AD as of December 29, 2015.

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 all ATR--GIE Avions de 
Transport R[eacute]gional Model ATR42 and ATR72 airplanes. The NPRM 
published in the Federal Register on April 10, 2015 (80 FR 19246).
    The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical 
Agent for the Member States of the European Union, has issued EASA 
Airworthiness Directive 2014-0074, dated March 21, 2014 (referred to 
after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or 
``the MCAI''), to correct an unsafe condition for all ATR--GIE Avions 
de Transport R[eacute]gional Model ATR42 and ATR72 airplanes. The MCAI 
states:

    Prompted by cases of rupture of Main Landing Gear (MLG) rear 
hinge pin part number (P/N) D61000 encountered in service in 1994 
and 1996, DGAC France issued [an] AD * * * for ATR 42 aeroplanes and 
[another]AD * * * for ATR 72 aeroplanes to require inspection and, 
depending on findings, corrective action.
    Since those [French] ADs were issued, new occurrences of cracked 
rear hinge pin P/N D61000 were reported on ATR72 MLG.
    The result of subsequent investigation revealed that the 
affected pins were subjected to a non-detected thermal abuse done in 
production during grinding process. Analysis also showed that other 
MLG pin P/N's could be affected by the same nonconformity.
    This condition, if not detected and corrected, could lead to MLG 
structural failure, possibly resulting in collapse of the MLG and 
consequently injury to the occupants of the aeroplane.
    For the reasons described above, this [EASA] AD requires 
inspection and, depending on findings, replacement of affected pins.

    You may examine the MCAI in the AD docket on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=FAA-2015-0682-0002.

Comments

    We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing 
this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM (80 FR 19246, April 10, 
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 this 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 19246, April 10, 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 19246, April 10, 2015).

Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51

    Messier-Bugatti-Dowty has issued the following service information, 
which describes procedures for inspecting the MLG hinge pin.
     Service Bulletin 631-32-213, dated December 16, 2013.
     Service Bulletin 631-32-214, dated January 13, 2014.
     Service Bulletin 631-32-215, dated January 13, 2014.
     Service Bulletin 631-32-216, Revision 1, dated December 
17, 2013.
     Service Bulletin 631-32-219, dated March 3, 2014.
     Service Bulletin 631-32-220, dated March 3, 2014.
    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 affects 81 airplanes of U.S. registry.
    We also estimate that it will take about 8 work-hours per product 
to comply with the basic requirements of this AD. The average labor 
rate is $85 per work-hour. Required parts will cost about $16,000 per 
product. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this AD on 
U.S. operators to be $1,351,080, or $16,680 per product.
    According to the manufacturer, some of the costs of this AD may be 
covered under warranty, thereby reducing the cost impact on affected 
individuals. We do not control warranty coverage for affected 
individuals. As a result, we have included all costs in our cost 
estimate.

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 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
    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/#!docketDetail;D=FAA-2015-0682; or in person at the 
Docket Management Facility between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through
