[FR Doc. 2015–30022 Filed 11–25–15; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–13–P DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Aviation Administration 14 CFR Part 39 [Docket No. FAA–2015–5811; Directorate Identifier 2014–NM–158–AD] RIN 2120–AA64 Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT. ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). AGENCY: We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2004–19– 11 for certain Airbus Model 320 series airplanes. AD 2004–19–11 currently requires modification of the inner rear spar web of the wing, cold expansion of the attachment holes of the forward pintle fitting and the actuating cylinder anchorage of the main landing gear (MLG), repetitive ultrasonic inspections for cracking of the rear spar of the wing, and corrective action if necessary. AD 2004–19–11 also provides optional terminating action for the repetitive inspections. Since we issued AD 2004– 19–11, we have determined that the terminating action is necessary to address the unsafe condition. This proposed AD is intended to complete certain mandated programs intended to support the airplane reaching its limit of validity (LOV) of the engineering data that support the established structural maintenance program. This proposed AD would retain the requirements of AD 2004–19–11 and would require the previously optional terminating action. We are proposing this AD to prevent fatigue cracking of the inner rear spar, which may lead to reduced structural integrity of the wing and the MLG. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:45 Nov 25, 2015 Jkt 238001 We must receive comments on this proposed AD by January 11, 2016.

Discussion On September 21, 2004, we issued AD 2004–19–11, Amendment 39–13805 (69 FR 58828, October 1, 2004). AD 2004– 19–11 requires actions intended to address an unsafe condition on certain Airbus Model 320 series airplanes. AD 2004–19–11 superseded AD 2000–10– 15, Amendment 39–17739 (65 FR 34069, May 26, 2000). Since we issued AD 2004–19–11, Amendment 39–13805 (69 FR 58828, October 1, 2004), we have determined that the modification of the inner rear spar that is an optional terminating action of AD 2004–19–11 must be accomplished in order to address the identified unsafe condition. As described in FAA Advisory Circular 120–104 (http://www.faa.gov/ documentLibrary/media/Advisory_ Circular/120–104.pdf), several programs have been developed to support initiatives that will ensure the continued airworthiness of aging airplane structure. The last element of those initiatives is the requirement to establish a limit of validity (LOV) of the engineering data that support the structural maintenance program under 14 CFR 26.21. This proposed AD is the result of an assessment of the previously established programs by the design approval holder (DAH). The actions specified in this proposed AD are necessary to complete certain programs to ensure the continued airworthiness of aging airplane structure and to support an airplane reaching its LOV. The European Aviation Safety Agency, which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the European Union, has issued EASA Airworthiness Directive 2014–0169, corrected July 22, 2014 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition on certain Airbus Model A320 series airplanes. The MCAI states: During centre fuselage certification full scale fatigue test, cracks were found on the E:\FR\FM\27NOP1.SGM 27NOP1 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 228 / Friday, November 27, 2015 / Proposed Rules inner rear spar at holes position 52 on the right hand wing due to fatigue aspects. This condition, if not detected and corrected, could affect the structural integrity of the aeroplane. To prevent such cracks, Airbus developed modifications, which were introduced in production and in service through several Airbus Service Bulletins (SB). DGAC France issued * * * [an earlier AD], which was subsequently superseded by [DGAC] AD 2001–249 [which corresponds with FAA AD 2004–19–11, Amendment 39–13805 (69 FR 58828, October 1, 2004)], to require modification of the rear spar on some aeroplanes, post-modification repetitive inspections and, depending on findings, accomplishment of a repair. DGAC France AD 2001–249 also specified that modification in accordance with Airbus SB A320–57–1089 (in-service equivalent to Airbus mod 24591) constituted (optional) terminating action for the repetitive inspections. Since that [DGAC] AD [2001–249] was issued, in the framework of the A320 Extended Service Goal (ESG), it has been determined that Airbus mod 24591 is necessary to allow aeroplanes to operate up to the new ESG limit. For the reasons described above, this [EASA] AD retains the requirements of DGAC France AD 2001–249, which is superseded, and requires modification of all pre-mod 24591 aeroplanes. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS The modification includes modifying all specified fastener holes in the inner rear spar of the wing. You may examine the MCAI in the AD docket on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating Docket No. FAA–2015–5811. Related Service Information Under 1 CFR part 51 Airbus has issued the following service information. • Airbus Service Bulletin A320–57– 1004, Revision 02, dated June 14, 1993. This service information describes procedures for modifying the inner rear spar web of the wing. • Airbus Service Bulletin A320–57– 1060, Revision 2, dated December 16, 1994. This service information describes procedures for a cold expansion of all the attachment holes for the forward pintle fitting of the main landing gear (MLG), except for the holes that are for taper-lok bolts; and for a cold expansion of the holes at the actuating cylinder anchorage of the MLG. • Airbus Mandatory Service Bulletin A320–57–1088, Revision 04, dated August 6, 2001. This service information describes procedures for doing ultrasonic inspections for cracking of the rear spar of the wing. • Airbus Service Bulletin A320–57– 1089, Revision 03, dated February 9, 2001. This service information describes modification of the airplane by accomplishing cold reexpansion of the VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:45 Nov 25, 2015 Jkt 238001 holes in the inner rear spar for the attachment of gear rib 5, forward pintle fitting, and actuating cylinder anchorage; and the installation of interference fit fasteners in the rear spar and gear rib 5. 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 ADDRESSESsection of this NPRM. FAA’s Determination and Requirements of This Proposed AD This product has been approved by the aviation authority of another country, and is approved for operation in the United States. Pursuant to our bilateral agreement with the State of Design Authority, we have been notified of the unsafe condition described in the MCAI and service information referenced above. We are proposing this AD because we evaluated all pertinent information and determined an unsafe condition exists and is likely to exist or develop on other products of the same type design. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this proposed AD affects 84 airplanes of U.S. registry. The actions required by AD 2004–19– 11, Amendment 39–13805 (69 FR 58828, October 1, 2004), and retained in this proposed AD take about 684 workhours per product, at an average labor rate of $85 per work-hour. Required parts cost about $13,644 per product. Based on these figures, the estimated cost of the actions that are required by AD 2004–19–11 is $71,784 per product. We also estimate that it would take about 980 work-hours per product to comply with the basic requirements of this proposed AD. The average labor rate is $85 per work-hour. Required parts would cost about $32,727 per product. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this proposed AD on U.S. operators to be $9,746,268, or $116,027 per product. We have received no definitive data that would enable us to provide cost estimates for the on-condition actions specified in this proposed AD. 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, PO 00000 Frm 00056 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 74059 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 proposed AD would not have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. This proposed AD would 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 proposed regulation: 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. The Proposed Amendment Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the FAA proposes to amend 14 CFR part 39 as follows: 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 removing Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2004–19–11, Amendment 39–13805 (69 FR 58828, October 1, 2004), and adding the following new AD: ■ Airbus: Docket No. FAA–2015–5811; Directorate Identifier 2014–NM–158–AD.

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

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

SUMMARY: We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2004-19-
11 for certain Airbus Model 320 series airplanes. AD 2004-19-11 
currently requires modification of the inner rear spar web of the wing, 
cold expansion of the attachment holes of the forward pintle fitting 
and the actuating cylinder anchorage of the main landing gear (MLG), 
repetitive ultrasonic inspections for cracking of the rear spar of the 
wing, and corrective action if necessary. AD 2004-19-11 also provides 
optional terminating action for the repetitive inspections. Since we 
issued AD 2004-19-11, we have determined that the terminating action is 
necessary to address the unsafe condition. This proposed AD is intended 
to complete certain mandated programs intended to support the airplane 
reaching its limit of validity (LOV) of the engineering data that 
support the established structural maintenance program. This proposed 
AD would retain the requirements of AD 2004-19-11 and would require the 
previously optional terminating action. We are proposing this AD to 
prevent fatigue cracking of the inner rear spar, which may lead to 
reduced structural integrity of the wing and the MLG.

DATES: We must receive comments on this proposed AD by January 11, 
2016.

Discussion

    On September 21, 2004, we issued AD 2004-19-11, Amendment 39-13805 
(69 FR 58828, October 1, 2004). AD 2004-19-11 requires actions intended 
to address an unsafe condition on certain Airbus Model 320 series 
airplanes. AD 2004-19-11 superseded AD 2000-10-15, Amendment 39-17739 
(65 FR 34069, May 26, 2000).
    Since we issued AD 2004-19-11, Amendment 39-13805 (69 FR 58828, 
October 1, 2004), we have determined that the modification of the inner 
rear spar that is an optional terminating action of AD 2004-19-11 must 
be accomplished in order to address the identified unsafe condition.
    As described in FAA Advisory Circular 120-104 (http://www.faa.gov/documentLibrary/media/Advisory_Circular/120-104.pdf), several programs 
have been developed to support initiatives that will ensure the 
continued airworthiness of aging airplane structure. The last element 
of those initiatives is the requirement to establish a limit of 
validity (LOV) of the engineering data that support the structural 
maintenance program under 14 CFR 26.21. This proposed AD is the result 
of an assessment of the previously established programs by the design 
approval holder (DAH). The actions specified in this proposed AD are 
necessary to complete certain programs to ensure the continued 
airworthiness of aging airplane structure and to support an airplane 
reaching its LOV.
    The European Aviation Safety Agency, which is the Technical Agent 
for the Member States of the European Union, has issued EASA 
Airworthiness Directive 2014-0169, corrected July 22, 2014 (referred to 
after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or 
``the MCAI''), to correct an unsafe condition on certain Airbus Model 
A320 series airplanes. The MCAI states:

    During centre fuselage certification full scale fatigue test, 
cracks were found on the

[[Page 74059]]

inner rear spar at holes position 52 on the right hand wing due to 
fatigue aspects.
    This condition, if not detected and corrected, could affect the 
structural integrity of the aeroplane.
    To prevent such cracks, Airbus developed modifications, which 
were introduced in production and in service through several Airbus 
Service Bulletins (SB). DGAC France issued * * * [an earlier AD], 
which was subsequently superseded by [DGAC] AD 2001-249 [which 
corresponds with FAA AD 2004-19-11, Amendment 39-13805 (69 FR 58828, 
October 1, 2004)], to require modification of the rear spar on some 
aeroplanes, post-modification repetitive inspections and, depending 
on findings, accomplishment of a repair. DGAC France AD 2001-249 
also specified that modification in accordance with Airbus SB A320-
57-1089 (in-service equivalent to Airbus mod 24591) constituted 
(optional) terminating action for the repetitive inspections.
    Since that [DGAC] AD [2001-249] was issued, in the framework of 
the A320 Extended Service Goal (ESG), it has been determined that 
Airbus mod 24591 is necessary to allow aeroplanes to operate up to 
the new ESG limit.
    For the reasons described above, this [EASA] AD retains the 
requirements of DGAC France AD 2001-249, which is superseded, and 
requires modification of all pre-mod 24591 aeroplanes.

    The modification includes modifying all specified fastener holes in 
the inner rear spar of the wing. You may examine the MCAI in the AD 
docket on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov by searching for 
and locating Docket No. FAA-2015-5811.

Related Service Information Under 1 CFR part 51

    Airbus has issued the following service information.
     Airbus Service Bulletin A320-57-1004, Revision 02, dated 
June 14, 1993. This service information describes procedures for 
modifying the inner rear spar web of the wing.
     Airbus Service Bulletin A320-57-1060, Revision 2, dated 
December 16, 1994. This service information describes procedures for a 
cold expansion of all the attachment holes for the forward pintle 
fitting of the main landing gear (MLG), except for the holes that are 
for taper-lok bolts; and for a cold expansion of the holes at the 
actuating cylinder anchorage of the MLG.
     Airbus Mandatory Service Bulletin A320-57-1088, Revision 
04, dated August 6, 2001. This service information describes procedures 
for doing ultrasonic inspections for cracking of the rear spar of the 
wing.
     Airbus Service Bulletin A320-57-1089, Revision 03, dated 
February 9, 2001. This service information describes modification of 
the airplane by accomplishing cold reexpansion of the holes in the 
inner rear spar for the attachment of gear rib 5, forward pintle 
fitting, and actuating cylinder anchorage; and the installation of 
interference fit fasteners in the rear spar and gear rib 5.
    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 ADDRESSESsection of this 
NPRM.

FAA's Determination and Requirements of This Proposed AD

    This product has been approved by the aviation authority of another 
country, and is approved for operation in the United States. Pursuant 
to our bilateral agreement with the State of Design Authority, we have 
been notified of the unsafe condition described in the MCAI and service 
information referenced above. We are proposing this AD because we 
evaluated all pertinent information and determined an unsafe condition 
exists and is likely to exist or develop on other products of the same 
type design.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this proposed AD affects 84 airplanes of U.S. 
registry.
    The actions required by AD 2004-19-11, Amendment 39-13805 (69 FR 
58828, October 1, 2004), and retained in this proposed AD take about 
684 work-hours per product, at an average labor rate of $85 per work-
hour. Required parts cost about $13,644 per product. Based on these 
figures, the estimated cost of the actions that are required by AD 
2004-19-11 is $71,784 per product.
    We also estimate that it would take about 980 work-hours per 
product to comply with the basic requirements of this proposed AD. The 
average labor rate is $85 per work-hour. Required parts would cost 
about $32,727 per product. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost 
of this proposed AD on U.S. operators to be $9,746,268, or $116,027 per 
product.
    We have received no definitive data that would enable us to provide 
cost estimates for the on-condition actions specified in this proposed 
AD.

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 proposed AD would not have federalism 
implications under Executive Order 13132. This proposed AD would 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 proposed 
regulation:
    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.

    (1) Do an ultrasonic inspection for cracking of the rear spar of 
the wing, in accordance with Airbus Service Bulletin A320-57-1088, 
Revision 04, dated August 6, 2001. Inspect at the applicable time 
specified in paragraph 1.E. of Airbus Service Bulletin A320-57-1088, 
Revision 04, dated August 6, 2001, except as required by paragraphs 
(i)(1)(i) and (i)(1)(ii) of this AD.
    (i) For any airplane that has not been inspected but has exceeded 
the applicable specified compliance time in paragraph 1.E. of Airbus

[[Page 74061]]

Manager, International Branch, ANM-116, Transport Airplane Directorate, 
FAA; or EASA; or Airbus's EASA DOA. Modification of all specified 
fastener holes in the rear spar of the wing terminates the initial and 
repetitive inspections required by paragraphs (i)(1) and (i)(2) of this 
AD. If the modification is done both before the airplane accumulates 
12,000 total flight cycles and before the effective date of this AD, 
the modification also terminates the actions required by paragraphs (g) 
and (h) of this AD.

(l) Credit for Previous Actions

    (1) This paragraph provides credit for actions required by 
paragraph (i) of this AD, if those actions were performed before the 
effective date of this AD using Airbus Service Bulletin A320-57-1088, 
Revision 02, dated July 29, 1999; or Revision 03, dated February 9, 
2001, which are not incorporated by reference in this AD.
    (2) This paragraph provides credit for actions required by 
paragraph (k) of this AD, if those actions were performed before the 
effective date of this AD using Airbus Service Bulletin A320-57-1089, 
Revision 02, dated November 6, 1998, which is not incorporated by 
reference in this AD.
