DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Aviation Administration 14 CFR Part 39 [Docket No. FAA–2016–9190; Directorate Identifier 2016–NM–087–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) 2014–23– 06, for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL–600–2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes. AD 2014–23–06 currently requires modifying the main landing gear (MLG) by installing a new bracket on the left and right lower aftwing planks. Since we issued AD 2014– 23–06, we have determined that it is necessary to require a different modification of the MLG. This proposed AD would require modification of the MLG with an improved design. We are proposing this AD to prevent incorrect installation of the brake hydraulic lines, which could cause the brakes and the anti-skid system to operate incorrectly, and result in catastrophic failure of the airplane during a high-speed rejected takeoff.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Comments Invited We invite you to send any written relevant data, views, or arguments about this proposed AD. Send your comments to an address listed under the ADDRESSES section. Include ‘‘Docket No. FAA–2016–9190; Directorate Identifier 2016–NM–087–AD’’ at the beginning of your comments. We specifically invite comments on the overall regulatory, economic, environmental, and energy PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 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. We will also post a report summarizing each substantive verbal contact we receive about this proposed AD. Discussion On November 5, 2014, we issued AD 2014–23–06, Amendment 39–18022 (79 FR 69037, November 20, 2014) (‘‘AD 2014–23–06’’). AD 2014–23–06 requires actions intended to correct an unsafe condition for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL–600–2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes. Since we issued AD 2014–23–06, we have determined that the modification required by AD 2014–23–06 is inadequate, and that it is necessary to require an improved modification of the MLG. Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation authority for Canada, has issued Canadian Airworthiness Directive CF–2014–10R1, dated May 4, 2016 (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: Cases of inboard and outboard hydraulic brake lines connected to the incorrect port of the swivel assembly on the main landing gear were found in service. Cross-connected brake hydraulic lines can cause the brakes and/or the anti-skid system to operate incorrectly. During a high speed rejected take-off, inability for the brakes to operate correctly could be catastrophic. The original issue of this [Canadian] AD mandated the modification to prevent inadvertent crossconnection of the inboard and outboard hydraulic brake lines. Following the initial release of this [Canadian] AD, operators reported that the modifications required by Bombardier Service Bulletin (SB) 601R–32–110 Rev. NC., dated 19 December 2013, still have a potential for incorrect connection. Subsequently, the SB has been revised to introduce a modified design and this [Canadian] AD revision is issued to mandate the incorporation of the modified design. You may examine the MCAI in the AD docket on the Internet at http:// www.regulations.gov by searching for E:\FR\FM\24OCP1.SGM 24OCP1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 205 / Monday, October 24, 2016 / Proposed Rules and locating Docket No. FAA–2016– 9190. Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51 Bombardier, Inc. has issued Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R–32– 110, Revision C, dated May 4, 2016. The service information describes modifying the MLG by installing a block on the left and right lower aft-wing planks. 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 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. sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with PROPOSALS Costs of Compliance We estimate that this proposed AD affects 526 airplanes of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it would take about 9 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 $190 per product. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this proposed AD on U.S. operators to be $502,330, or $955 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:53 Oct 21, 2016 Jkt 241001 73043 that is likely to exist or develop on products identified in this rulemaking action. (d) Subject Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 32, Landing gear. 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. (e) Reason This AD was prompted by a report indicating that inboard and outboard hydraulic lines of the brakes were found connected to the incorrect ports on the swivel assembly of the main landing gear (MLG). We are issuing this AD to prevent incorrect installation of the brake hydraulic lines, which could cause the brakes and the anti-skid system to operate incorrectly, and result in catastrophic failure of the airplane during a high-speed rejected takeoff. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by reference, Safety.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Synopsis In the Incentive Auction Report and Order (IA R&O), 79 FR 48441, August 15, 2014, the Federal Communications Commission (Commission or FCC) delegated authority to the Media Bureau (the Bureau) to establish construction deadlines within the 39-month postauction transition period for television stations that are assigned to new channels in the incentive auction repacking process. In delegating authority to the Bureau to establish construction deadlines within the transition period, the FCC directed the Bureau to tailor the deadlines to stations’ individual circumstances. The Commission also determined that a phased construction schedule would facilitate efficient use of the resources necessary to complete the transition. In the IA R&O the FCC also directed the Bureau to account for ‘‘the needs of forward auction winners and their construction plans.’’ Based on the record to date and on staff analysis and computer modeling, the Bureau is developing a plan to create a phased transition schedule for broadcasters that are reassigned to a new channel in the repacking. Under this phased approach, stations will be assigned to one of 10 ‘‘transition phases’’ with sequential testing periods and deadlines, or ‘‘phase completion dates.’’ The phase completion date will be the date listed in each station’s construction permit as its construction deadline and will be the last day that a station may operate on its pre-auction channel.

Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

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

SUMMARY: We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2014-23-
06, for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional Jet Series 
100 & 440) airplanes. AD 2014-23-06 currently requires modifying the 
main landing gear (MLG) by installing a new bracket on the left and 
right lower aft-wing planks. Since we issued AD 2014-23-06, we have 
determined that it is necessary to require a different modification of 
the MLG. This proposed AD would require modification of the MLG with an 
improved design. We are proposing this AD to prevent incorrect 
installation of the brake hydraulic lines, which could cause the brakes 
and the anti-skid system to operate incorrectly, and result in 
catastrophic failure of the airplane during a high-speed rejected 
takeoff.

DATES: We must receive comments on this proposed AD by December 8, 
2016.

Discussion

    On November 5, 2014, we issued AD 2014-23-06, Amendment 39-18022 
(79 FR 69037, November 20, 2014) (``AD 2014-23-06''). AD 2014-23-06 
requires actions intended to correct an unsafe condition for certain 
Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) 
airplanes.
    Since we issued AD 2014-23-06, we have determined that the 
modification required by AD 2014-23-06 is inadequate, and that it is 
necessary to require an improved modification of the MLG.
    Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation 
authority for Canada, has issued Canadian Airworthiness Directive CF-
2014-10R1, dated May 4, 2016 (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:

    Cases of inboard and outboard hydraulic brake lines connected to 
the incorrect port of the swivel assembly on the main landing gear 
were found in service. Cross-connected brake hydraulic lines can 
cause the brakes and/or the anti-skid system to operate incorrectly. 
During a high speed rejected take-off, inability for the brakes to 
operate correctly could be catastrophic. The original issue of this 
[Canadian] AD mandated the modification to prevent inadvertent 
cross-connection of the inboard and outboard hydraulic brake lines.
    Following the initial release of this [Canadian] AD, operators 
reported that the modifications required by Bombardier Service 
Bulletin (SB) 601R-32-110 Rev. NC., dated 19 December 2013, still 
have a potential for incorrect connection. Subsequently, the SB has 
been revised to introduce a modified design and this [Canadian] AD 
revision is issued to mandate the incorporation of the modified 
design.

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 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 526 airplanes of U.S. 
registry.
    We also estimate that it would take about 9 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 $190 
per product. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this 
proposed AD on U.S. operators to be $502,330, or $955 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 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) 
2014-23-06, Amendment 39-18022 (79 FR 69037, November 20, 2014), and 
adding the following new AD:

Bombardier, Inc.: Docket No. FAA-2016-9190; Directorate Identifier 
2016-NM-087-AD.

(a) Comments Due Date

    We must receive comments by December 8, 2016.

(b) Affected ADs

    This AD replaces AD 2014-23-06, Amendment 39-18022 (79 FR 69037, 
November 20, 2014) (``AD 2014-23-06'').

(c) Applicability

    This AD applies to Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional 
Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes, certificated in any category, 
serial numbers 7003 and subsequent.

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 32, Landing 
gear.

(e) Reason

    This AD was prompted by a report indicating that inboard and 
outboard hydraulic lines of the brakes were found connected to the 
incorrect ports on the swivel assembly of the main landing gear 
(MLG). We are issuing this AD to prevent incorrect installation of 
the brake hydraulic lines, which could cause the brakes and the 
anti-skid system to operate incorrectly, and result in catastrophic 
failure of the airplane during a high-speed rejected takeoff.

(f) Compliance

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

 (g) Modification of the MLG

    (1) For airplanes on which Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R-32-
110, dated December 19, 2013, has been incorporated: Within 6,600 
flight hours or 37 months after the effective date of this AD, 
whichever occurs first, modify the MLG, in accordance with Part B of 
the Accomplishment Instructions of Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R-
32-110, Revision C, dated May 4, 2016.
    (2) For airplanes on which Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R-32-
110, dated December 19, 2013, has not been incorporated: Within 
4,400 flight hours or 24 months after the effective date of this AD, 
whichever occurs first, modify the MLG, in accordance with Part A of 
the Accomplishment Instructions of Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R-
32-110, Revision C, dated May 4, 2016.

(h) Credit for Previous Actions

    (1) This paragraph provides credit for actions required by 
paragraph (g)(1) of this AD, if those actions were performed before 
the effective date of this AD using Part B of Bombardier Service 
Bulletin 601R-32-110, Revision A, dated October 29, 2015; or 
Revision B, dated January 26, 2016.
    (2) This paragraph provides credit for actions required by 
paragraph (g)(2) of this AD, if those actions were performed before 
the effective date of this AD using Part A of Bombardier Service 
Bulletin 601R-32-110, Revision A, dated October 29, 2015; or 
Revision B, dated January 26, 2016.
