SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion On April 20, 2016, we issued AD 2016–09–04, Amendment 39–18502 (81 FR 26102, May 2, 2016) (‘‘AD 2016–09– 04’’), for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL–600–2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes. AD 2016–09–04 was prompted by the discovery of a number of incorrectly calibrated AOA transducers installed in the stall protection system. AD 2016–09–04 required replacement of incorrectly calibrated AOA transducers. We issued AD 2016–09–04 to detect and replace incorrectly calibrated AOA transducers; incorrect calibration of the transducers could result in late activation of the stick pusher. Since we issued AD 2016–09–04, we received a report of a typographical error in the regulatory text of AD 2016– 09–04. Paragraph (h) of AD 2016–09–04 inadvertently stated, ‘‘having a part number or serial number.’’ This should have stated ‘‘having a part number and serial number.’’ We have revised paragraph (h) of this AD accordingly. Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation authority PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 for Canada, has issued Canadian AD CF–2015–17, dated July 16, 2015 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL–600–2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes. The MCAI states: It was discovered that a number of AOA transducers installed on Bombardier CL– 600–2B19 aeroplanes were incorrectly calibrated due to a quality control problem at both the production and repair facilities. Incorrect calibration of the AOA transducer could result in a late activation of the stick pusher. This [Canadian] AD mandates the replacement of the incorrectly calibrated AOA transducer. You may examine the MCAI on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating Docket No. FAA–2016–7266. Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51 We reviewed Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R–27–164, dated March 30, 2015. The service information describes procedures for replacement of incorrectly calibrated AOA transducers with correctly calibrated AOA transducers. 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. FAA’s Determination and Requirements of This 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 issuing this AD because we evaluated all pertinent information and determined the unsafe condition exists and is likely to exist or develop on other products of the same type design. FAA’s Justification and Determination of the Effective Date We are superseding AD 2016–09–04 to correct a typographical error in the regulatory text. No other changes have been made to AD 2016–09–04. Therefore, we determined that notice and opportunity for public comment are unnecessary. Comments Invited This AD is a final rule that involves requirements affecting flight safety, and E:\FR\FM\22JNR1.SGM 22JNR1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 120 / Wednesday, June 22, 2016 / Rules and Regulations 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. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this AD affects 575 airplanes of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it would take about 4 work-hours per product to comply with the basic requirements of this AD. The average labor rate is $85 per work-hour. Required parts would cost about $10,000 per product. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this AD on U.S. operators to be $5,945,500, or $10,340 per product. Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the FAA amends 14 CFR part 39 as follows: 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. sradovich on DSK3TPTVN1PROD with RULES we did not precede it by notice and opportunity for public comment. We invite you to send any written relevant data, views, or arguments about this AD. Send your comments to an address listed under the ADDRESSES section. Include ‘‘Docket No. FAA–2016–7266; Directorate Identifier 2016–NM–085– AD’’ at the beginning of your comments. We specifically invite comments on the overall regulatory, economic, environmental, and energy aspects of this AD. We will consider all comments received by the closing date and may amend this AD 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 AD. ■ 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, VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:06 Jun 21, 2016 Jkt 238001 List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by reference, Safety.

Discussion

    On April 20, 2016, we issued AD 2016-09-04, Amendment 39-18502 (81 
FR 26102, May 2, 2016) (``AD 2016-09-04''), for certain Bombardier, 
Inc. Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes. AD 
2016-09-04 was prompted by the discovery of a number of incorrectly 
calibrated AOA transducers installed in the stall protection system. AD 
2016-09-04 required replacement of incorrectly calibrated AOA 
transducers. We issued AD 2016-09-04 to detect and replace incorrectly 
calibrated AOA transducers; incorrect calibration of the transducers 
could result in late activation of the stick pusher.
    Since we issued AD 2016-09-04, we received a report of a 
typographical error in the regulatory text of AD 2016-09-04. Paragraph 
(h) of AD 2016-09-04 inadvertently stated, ``having a part number or 
serial number.'' This should have stated ``having a part number and 
serial number.'' We have revised paragraph (h) of this AD accordingly.

authority for Canada, has issued Canadian AD CF-2015-17, dated July 16, 
2015 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness 
Information, or ``the MCAI''), to correct an unsafe condition for 
certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 
440) airplanes. The MCAI states:

    It was discovered that a number of AOA transducers installed on 
Bombardier CL-600-2B19 aeroplanes were incorrectly calibrated due to 
a quality control problem at both the production and repair 
facilities. Incorrect calibration of the AOA transducer could result 
in a late activation of the stick pusher.
    This [Canadian] AD mandates the replacement of the incorrectly 
calibrated AOA transducer.

    You may examine the MCAI on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating Docket No. FAA-2016-
7266.

Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51

    We reviewed Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R-27-164, dated March 
30, 2015. The service information describes procedures for replacement 
of incorrectly calibrated AOA transducers with correctly calibrated AOA 
transducers. 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.

FAA's Determination and Requirements of This 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 issuing this AD because we 
evaluated all pertinent information and determined the unsafe condition 
exists and is likely to exist or develop on other products of the same 
type design.

FAA's Justification and Determination of the Effective Date

    We are superseding AD 2016-09-04 to correct a typographical error 
in the regulatory text. No other changes have been made to AD 2016-09-
04. Therefore, we determined that notice and opportunity for public 
comment are unnecessary.

Comments Invited

    This AD is a final rule that involves requirements affecting flight 
safety, and

[[Page 40489]]

we did not precede it by notice and opportunity for public comment. We 
invite you to send any written relevant data, views, or arguments about 
this AD. Send your comments to an address listed under the ADDRESSES 
section. Include ``Docket No. FAA-2016-7266; Directorate Identifier 
2016-NM-085-AD'' at the beginning of your comments. We specifically 
invite comments on the overall regulatory, economic, environmental, and 
energy aspects of this AD. We will consider all comments received by 
the closing date and may amend this AD 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 AD.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this AD affects 575 airplanes of U.S. registry.
    We also estimate that it would take about 4 work-hours per product 
to comply with the basic requirements of this AD. The average labor 
rate is $85 per work-hour. Required parts would cost about $10,000 per 
product. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this AD on 
U.S. operators to be $5,945,500, or $10,340 per product.

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.

List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39

reference, Safety.

Adoption of the Amendment

    Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the 
Administrator, the FAA amends 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]
