BILLING CODE 6450–01–P VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:23 Mar 14, 2016 Jkt 238001 We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Honeywell International Inc. (Honeywell) TPE331 model turboprop engines and TSE331–3U model turboshaft engines. This proposed AD was prompted by the discovery of cracks in a 2nd stage compressor impeller during a routine shop visit. This proposed AD would require removal of the 2nd stage compressor impeller. We are proposing this AD to prevent failure of the compressor impeller, uncontained part release, damage to the engine, and damage to the airplane. DATES: We must receive comments on this proposed AD by May 16, 2016. ADDRESSES: You may send comments, using the procedures found in 14 CFR 11.43 and 11.45, by any of the following methods: • Federal eRulemaking Portal: Go to http://www.regulations.gov. Follow the instructions for submitting comments. • Fax: 202–493–2251. • Mail: U.S. Department of Transportation, Docket Operations, M– 30, West Building Ground Floor, Room W12–140, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., Washington, DC 20590. • Hand Delivery: Deliver to Mail address above between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. SUMMARY: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: [FR Doc. 2016–05824 Filed 3–14–16; 8:45 am] Federal Aviation Administration Examining the AD Docket You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at http:// www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating Docket No. FAA–2015– 4866; 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 proposed AD, the regulatory evaluation, any comments received, and other information. The street address for the Docket Office (phone: 800–647–5527) is in the PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 ADDRESSES section. Comments will be available in the AD docket shortly after receipt. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Joseph Costa, Aerospace Engineer, Los Angeles Aircraft Certification Office, FAA, Transport Airplane Directorate, 3960 Paramount Blvd., Lakewood, CA 90712–4137; phone: 562–627–5246; fax: 562–627–5210; email: joseph.costa@faa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Comments Invited We invite you to send any written relevant data, views, or arguments about this NPRM. Send your comments to an address listed under the ADDRESSES section. Include ‘‘Docket No. FAA– 2015–4866; Directorate Identifier 2015– NE–33–AD’’ at the beginning of your comments. We specifically invite comments on the overall regulatory, economic, environmental, and energy aspects of this NPRM. We will consider all comments received by the closing date and may amend this NPRM because of those comments. We will post all comments we receive, without change, to http:// www.regulations.gov, including any personal information you provide. We will also post a report summarizing each substantive verbal contact we receive about this NPRM. Discussion Several 2nd stage compressor impellers were found cracked in the aft curvic root radius when inspected during a routine shop visit. This condition, if not corrected, could result in failure of the compressor impeller, uncontained part release, damage to the engine, and damage to the airplane. FAA’s Determination We are proposing this NPRM because we evaluated all the relevant information and determined the unsafe condition described previously is likely to exist or develop in other products of the same type design. Proposed AD Requirements This NPRM would require accomplishing the actions specified in the service information described previously. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this proposed AD would affect 4,000 engines installed on airplanes of U.S. registry. We estimate that it would take 0 hours per engine to comply with this proposed AD. The average labor rate is $85 per hour. We also estimate that required parts would cost about $1,513.25 per engine.
