Airplanes Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of Transportation (DOT). AGENCY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:24 Dec 28, 2015 Jkt 238001 ACTION: Final rule. We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2011–07– 10 for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model BD–100–1A10 (Challenger 300) airplanes. AD 2011–07–10 required revising the Airworthiness Limitations section of the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness; doing detailed visual inspections; removing discrepant material; cleaning the surfaces of the valves, the plug of the sensing port, and the cabin pressure-sensing port plug; securing the insulation; installing a new safety valve, and replacing certain cabin pressure-sensing port plugs. This new AD retains all requirements of AD 2011– 07–10, and requires a detailed visual inspection of both safety valves and the surrounding area for foreign material, room temperature vulcanizing (RTV) silicone, contamination, foam on the bulkhead structure, tape or insulation, and loose material; and corrective actions if necessary. This AD was prompted by reports of in-flight loss of cabin pressurization that was attributed to partial blockage of a safety valve cabin pressure-sensing port in conjunction with a failed safety valve manometric capsule. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct blockage of a safety valve cabin pressure-sensing port, which could result in loss of cabin pressure. SUMMARY: This AD becomes effective February 2, 2016. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of a certain publication listed in this AD as of February 2, 2016. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain other publications listed in this AD as of May 5, 2011 (76 FR 17758, March 31, 2011).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 to supersede AD 2011–07–10, Amendment 39–16647 (76 FR 17758, March 31, 2011). AD 2011–07–10 applied to certain Bombardier, Inc. Model BD–100–1A10 (Challenger 300) airplanes. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on April 15, 2015 (80 FR 20181) (‘‘the NPRM’’). Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation authority for Canada, has issued Canadian Airworthiness Directive CF–2010–06R1, dated August 8, 2013 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model BD– 100–1A10 (Challenger 300) airplanes. The MCAI states: Investigation of a high altitude loss of cabin pressurization on a BD–100–1A10 aeroplane determined that it was caused by a partial blockage of a safety valve cabin pressure-sensing port, in conjunction with a dormant failure/leakage of the safety valve manometric capsule. The blockage, caused by accumulation of lint/dust on the grid of the port plug, did not allow sufficient airflow through the cabin pressure-sensing port to compensate for the rate of leakage from the manometric capsule, resulting in the opening of the safety valve. It was also determined that failure of the manometric capsule alone would not result in the opening of the safety valve. The original issue of this [Canadian] AD mandated a revision of the maintenance schedule, the cleaning of the safety valves, the removal of material from the area surrounding the safety valves and the modification of the safety valves with a gridless cabin pressure-sensing port plug. Since the original issue of this [Canadian] AD, there have been two additional reported events of in-flight loss of cabin pressurization that were attributed to partial blockage of a safety valve cabin pressure-sensing port in conjunction with a failed safety valve manometric capsule. Bombardier Aerospace has determined that aeroplanes with a particular interior installation require improved instructions to E:\FR\FM\29DER1.SGM 29DER1 81166 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 249 / Tuesday, December 29, 2015 / Rules and Regulations clean the safety valves and their surrounding area. In addition, Aircraft Maintenance Manual tasks have been updated to ensure that inspection of the safety valves and their surrounding is carried out after any maintenance action. Revision 1 of this [Canadian] AD is issued to mandate inspection and cleaning of the safety valves and their surrounding area on the affected aeroplanes. You may examine the MCAI in the AD docket on the Internet at http:// www.regulations.gov/ #!documentDetail;D=FAA-2015-11990002. Comments We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM or on the determination of the cost to the public. Revised Docket Number We have changed the docket number specified in the NPRM from ‘‘Docket No. FAA–2015–0827’’ to ‘‘Docket No. FAA–2015–1199’’ in this final rule. Conclusion We reviewed the available data and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting this AD with the change described previously and minor editorial changes. We have determined that these minor changes: • Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the NPRM for correcting the unsafe condition; and • Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was already proposed in the NPRM. jstallworth on DSK7TPTVN1PROD with RULES Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51 Bombardier has issued Service Bulletin 100–25–21, Revision 02, dated July 25, 2013. The service information describes procedures for a detailed visual inspection of both safety valves and the surrounding area for foreign material, RTV silicone, contamination, foam on the bulkhead structure, tape or insulation, and loose material, and applicable corrective actions. 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. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this AD affects 67 airplanes of U.S. registry. The actions required by AD 2011–07– 10, Amendment 39–16647 (76 FR 17758, March 31, 2011), and retained in this AD take about 10 work-hours per product, at an average labor rate of $85 per work-hour. Required parts cost VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:24 Dec 28, 2015 Jkt 238001 about $0 per product. Based on these figures, the estimated cost of the actions that were required by AD 2011–07–10 is $850 per product. We also estimate that it will take about 4 work-hours per product to comply with the new basic requirements of this AD. The average labor rate is $85 per work-hour. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this AD on U.S. operators to be $22,780, or $340 per product. According to the manufacturer, all 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 PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes

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

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2011-07-10 for 
certain Bombardier, Inc. Model BD-100-1A10 (Challenger 300) airplanes. 
AD 2011-07-10 required revising the Airworthiness Limitations section 
of the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness; doing detailed visual 
inspections; removing discrepant material; cleaning the surfaces of the 
valves, the plug of the sensing port, and the cabin pressure-sensing 
port plug; securing the insulation; installing a new safety valve, and 
replacing certain cabin pressure-sensing port plugs. This new AD 
retains all requirements of AD 2011-07-10, and requires a detailed 
visual inspection of both safety valves and the surrounding area for 
foreign material, room temperature vulcanizing (RTV) silicone, 
contamination, foam on the bulkhead structure, tape or insulation, and 
loose material; and corrective actions if necessary. This AD was 
prompted by reports of in-flight loss of cabin pressurization that was 
attributed to partial blockage of a safety valve cabin pressure-sensing 
port in conjunction with a failed safety valve manometric capsule. We 
are issuing this AD to detect and correct blockage of a safety valve 
cabin pressure-sensing port, which could result in loss of cabin 
pressure.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion

    We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR 
part 39 to supersede AD 2011-07-10, Amendment 39-16647 (76 FR 17758, 
March 31, 2011). AD 2011-07-10 applied to certain Bombardier, Inc. 
Model BD-100-1A10 (Challenger 300) airplanes. The NPRM published in the 
Federal Register on April 15, 2015 (80 FR 20181) (``the NPRM'').
    Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation 
authority for Canada, has issued Canadian Airworthiness Directive CF-
2010-06R1, dated August 8, 2013 (referred to after this as the 
Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ``the MCAI''), to 
correct an unsafe condition for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model BD-100-
1A10 (Challenger 300) airplanes. The MCAI states:

    Investigation of a high altitude loss of cabin pressurization on 
a BD-100-1A10 aeroplane determined that it was caused by a partial 
blockage of a safety valve cabin pressure-sensing port, in 
conjunction with a dormant failure/leakage of the safety valve 
manometric capsule. The blockage, caused by accumulation of lint/
dust on the grid of the port plug, did not allow sufficient airflow 
through the cabin pressure-sensing port to compensate for the rate 
of leakage from the manometric capsule, resulting in the opening of 
the safety valve. It was also determined that failure of the 
manometric capsule alone would not result in the opening of the 
safety valve.
    The original issue of this [Canadian] AD mandated a revision of 
the maintenance schedule, the cleaning of the safety valves, the 
removal of material from the area surrounding the safety valves and 
the modification of the safety valves with a gridless cabin 
pressure-sensing port plug.
    Since the original issue of this [Canadian] AD, there have been 
two additional reported events of in-flight loss of cabin 
pressurization that were attributed to partial blockage of a safety 
valve cabin pressure-sensing port in conjunction with a failed 
safety valve manometric capsule.
    Bombardier Aerospace has determined that aeroplanes with a 
particular interior installation require improved instructions to

[[Page 81166]]

clean the safety valves and their surrounding area. In addition, 
Aircraft Maintenance Manual tasks have been updated to ensure that 
inspection of the safety valves and their surrounding is carried out 
after any maintenance action.
    Revision 1 of this [Canadian] AD is issued to mandate inspection 
and cleaning of the safety valves and their surrounding area on the 
affected aeroplanes.

You may examine the MCAI in the AD docket on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=FAA-2015-1199-0002.

Comments

    We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing 
this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM or on the determination of 
the cost to the public.

Revised Docket Number

    We have changed the docket number specified in the NPRM from 
``Docket No. FAA-2015-0827'' to ``Docket No. FAA-2015-1199'' in this 
final rule.

Conclusion

    We reviewed the available data and determined that air safety and 
the public interest require adopting this AD with the change described 
previously and minor editorial changes. We have determined that these 
minor changes:
     Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the 
NPRM for correcting the unsafe condition; and
     Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was 
already proposed in the NPRM.

Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51

    Bombardier has issued Service Bulletin 100-25-21, Revision 02, 
dated July 25, 2013. The service information describes procedures for a 
detailed visual inspection of both safety valves and the surrounding 
area for foreign material, RTV silicone, contamination, foam on the 
bulkhead structure, tape or insulation, and loose material, and 
applicable corrective actions. 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.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this AD affects 67 airplanes of U.S. registry.
    The actions required by AD 2011-07-10, Amendment 39-16647 (76 FR 
17758, March 31, 2011), and retained in this AD take about 10 work-
hours per product, at an average labor rate of $85 per work-hour. 
Required parts cost about $0 per product. Based on these figures, the 
estimated cost of the actions that were required by AD 2011-07-10 is 
$850 per product.
    We also estimate that it will take about 4 work-hours per product 
to comply with the new basic requirements of this AD. The average labor 
rate is $85 per work-hour. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost 
of this AD on U.S. operators to be $22,780, or $340 per product.
    According to the manufacturer, all 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-2015-1199; or in person at the 
Docket Management Facility between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through 
Friday, except Federal holidays. The AD docket contains this AD, the 
regulatory evaluation, any comments received, and other information.
