[FR Doc. 2015–31850 Filed 12–23–15; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–13–P DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Aviation Administration 14 CFR Part 39 [Docket No. FAA–2015–7529; Directorate Identifier 2014–NM–207–AD] RIN 2120–AA64 Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT. ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). AGENCY: We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2014–16– 02, for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL–600–1A11 (CL–600) airplanes. AD 2014–16–02 currently requires revising the airplane flight manual to prohibit thrust reverser operation, doing repetitive detailed inspections of both engine thrust reversers for cracks, and modifying the thrust reversers if necessary. The modification of the thrust reversers is also an optional terminating action for the repetitive inspections. Since we issued AD 2014– 16–02, we have determined that it is necessary to add a requirement to repair or modify the thrust reversers, which would terminate the requirements of AD 2014–16–02. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct cracks of the translating sleeve at the thrust reverser actuator attachment points, which could result in deployment or dislodgement of an engine thrust reverser in flight and subsequent reduced control of the airplane.

Send your comments to an address listed under the ADDRESSES section. Include ‘‘Docket No. FAA–2015–7529; Directorate Identifier 2014–NM–207–AD’’ at the beginning of your comments. We specifically invite comments on the overall regulatory, economic, environmental, and energy aspects of this proposed AD. We will consider all comments received by the closing date and may amend this proposed AD based on those comments. We will post all comments we receive, without change, to http:// www.regulations.gov, including any personal information you provide.

Discussion On August 4, 2014, we issued AD 2014–16–02, Amendment 39–17926 (79 FR 46968, August 12, 2014). AD 2014– 16–02 requires actions intended to address an unsafe condition on certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL–600–1A11 (CL–600) airplanes. AD 2014–16–02 is parallel to Canadian AD CF–2014–19, dated June 20, 2014, which additionally mandated repair or modification of the thrust reversers. At that time, we had determined that the compliance time for that action would allow enough time to provide notice and opportunity for prior public comment on the merits of the actions. The preamble to AD 2014–16– 02 indicated we were considering further rulemaking to require repair or modification of the thrust reversers. We now have determined that further rulemaking is necessary. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS 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 Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information (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 18 airplanes of U.S. registry. The actions required by AD 2014–16– 02, Amendment 39–17926 (79 FR 46968, August 12, 2014), and retained in this proposed AD, take about 29 workhours per product, at an average labor rate of $85 per work-hour. Based on these figures, the estimated cost of the actions that are required by AD 2014– 16–02 is $2,465 per product. We also estimate that it would take about 100 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 $509 per product. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this proposed AD on U.S. operators to be $162,162, or $9,009 per product. According to the manufacturer, some of the costs of this proposed AD may be covered under warranty, thereby VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:42 Dec 23, 2015 Jkt 238001 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. 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. 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. 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: PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 § 39.13 [Amended] 2. The FAA amends § 39.13 by removing Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2014–16–02, Amendment 39–17926 (79 FR 46968, August 12, 2014), and adding the following new AD: ■ Bombardier, Inc.: Docket No. FAA–2015– 7529; Directorate Identifier 2014–NM– 207–AD.

ACTION: Supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM); reopening of comment period. We are revising an earlier proposed airworthiness directive (AD) for all Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation Model GV and GV–SP airplanes. The NPRM proposed to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2013–22–19, which requires inspecting to determine if fuel boost pumps having a certain part number are installed, replacing the fuel boost pumps having a certain part number, and revising the airplane maintenance or inspection program to include revised instructions for continued airworthiness. The NPRM also proposed to require revising the airplane maintenance program to include a fuel leak check of the fuel boost pumps, using new service information. The NPRM was prompted by reports of two independent types of failure of the fuel boost pump: overheat damage on the internal components and external housing, and fuel leakage. This action revises the NPRM by reducing the compliance time for revising the airplane maintenance program. We are proposing this supplemental NPRM (SNPRM) to prevent fuel leakage in combination with a capacitor clearance issue, which could result in an uncontrolled fire in the wheel well. Since these actions impose an additional burden over that proposed in the NPRM, we are reopening the comment period to allow the public the chance to comment on these proposed changes. DATES: We must receive comments on this SNPRM by February 8, 2016.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

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

SUMMARY: We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2014-16-
02, for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-1A11 (CL-600) airplanes. 
AD 2014-16-02 currently requires revising the airplane flight manual to 
prohibit thrust reverser operation, doing repetitive detailed 
inspections of both engine thrust reversers for cracks, and modifying 
the thrust reversers if necessary. The modification of the thrust 
reversers is also an optional terminating action for the repetitive 
inspections. Since we issued AD 2014-16-02, we have determined that it 
is necessary to add a requirement to repair or modify the thrust 
reversers, which would terminate the requirements of AD 2014-16-02. We 
are proposing this AD to detect and correct cracks of the translating 
sleeve at the thrust reverser actuator attachment points, which could 
result in deployment or dislodgement of an engine thrust reverser in 
flight and subsequent reduced control of the airplane.

Discussion

    On August 4, 2014, we issued AD 2014-16-02, Amendment 39-17926 (79 
FR 46968, August 12, 2014). AD 2014-16-02 requires actions intended to 
address an unsafe condition on certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-
1A11 (CL-600) airplanes. AD 2014-16-02 is parallel to Canadian AD CF-
2014-19, dated June 20, 2014, which additionally mandated repair or 
modification of the thrust reversers. At that time, we had determined 
that the compliance time for that action would allow enough time to 
provide notice and opportunity for prior public comment on the merits 
of the actions. The preamble to AD 2014-16-02 indicated we were 
considering further rulemaking to require repair or modification of the 
thrust reversers. We now have determined that further rulemaking is 
necessary.

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 Mandatory 
Continuing Airworthiness Information (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 18 airplanes of U.S. 
registry.
    The actions required by AD 2014-16-02, Amendment 39-17926 (79 FR 
46968, August 12, 2014), and retained in this proposed AD, take about 
29 work-hours per product, at an average labor rate of $85 per work-
hour. Based on these figures, the estimated cost of the actions that 
are required by AD 2014-16-02 is $2,465 per product.
    We also estimate that it would take about 100 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 $509 per product. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of 
this proposed AD on U.S. operators to be $162,162, or $9,009 per 
product.
    According to the manufacturer, some of the costs of this proposed 
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 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

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

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 removing Airworthiness Directive (AD) 
2014-16-02, Amendment 39-17926 (79 FR 46968, August 12, 2014), and 
adding the following new AD:

Bombardier, Inc.: Docket No. FAA-2015-7529; Directorate Identifier 
2014-NM-207-AD.

(a) Comments Due Date

    We must receive comments by February 8, 2016.

(b) Affected ADs

    This AD replaces AD 2014-16-02, Amendment 39-17926 (79 FR 46968, 
August 12, 2014).

(c) Applicability

    This AD applies to Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-1A11 (CL-600) 
airplanes, certificated in any category, serial numbers 1004 through 
1085.

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 78, Engine 
Exhaust.

(e) Reason

    This AD was prompted by reports of partial deployment of an 
engine thrust reverser in flight caused by a failure of the 
translating sleeve at the thrust reverser attachment points. We are 
issuing this AD to detect and correct cracks of the translating 
sleeve at the thrust reverser actuator attachment points, which 
could result in deployment or dislodgement of an engine thrust 
reverser in flight and subsequent reduced control of the airplane.

(f) Compliance

    Comply with this AD within the compliance times specified, 
unless already done.

(g) Retained Airplane Flight Manual (AFM) Revision With No Changes

    This paragraph restates the requirements of paragraph (g) of AD 
2014-16-02, Amendment 39-17926 (79 FR 46968, August 12, 2014), with 
no changes. Within 1 calendar day after August 12, 2014 (the 
effective date of AD 2014-16-02): Revise the applicable sections of 
the AFM to include the information specified in the temporary 
revisions (TRs) identified in paragraphs (g)(1), (g)(2), (g)(3), and 
(g)(4) of this AD, as applicable. These TRs introduce procedures to 
prohibit thrust reverser operation. Operate the airplane according 
to the limitations and procedures in the TRs identified in 
paragraphs (g)(1), (g)(2), (g)(3), and (g)(4) of this AD, as 
applicable. The revision required by paragraph (g) of this AD may be 
done by inserting copies of the applicable TRs identified in 
paragraphs (g)(1), (g)(2), (g)(3),

[[Page 80295]]

and (g)(4) of this AD into the AFM. When these TRs have been 
included in general revisions of the AFM, the general revisions may 
be inserted in the AFM, provided the relevant information in the 
general revision is identical to that in the applicable TRs, and the 
TRs may be removed.
