DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Aviation Administration 14 CFR Part 39 [Docket No. FAA–2016–5593; Directorate Identifier 2015–NM–184–AD; Amendment 39–18687; AD 2016–21–06] RIN 2120–AA64 Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of Transportation (DOT). ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2015–02– 23, for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL–600–1A11 (CL–600), CL–600–2A12 (CL–601), and CL–600–2B16 (CL–601– 3A and CL–601–3R Variants) airplanes. AD 2015–02–23 required repetitive inspections for fractured or incorrectly oriented fasteners on the inboard flap hinge-box forward fittings on both wings, and replacement of all fasteners if necessary. This new AD also requires replacement of the fasteners, which terminates the requirements of this AD. This AD was prompted by reports of incorrectly oriented fasteners. We are issuing this AD to prevent incorrectly oriented or fractured fasteners, which could result in detachment of the flap hinge-box and the flap surface, and consequent reduced controllability of the airplane. DATES: This AD is effective December 19, 2016. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in this AD as of February 18, 2015 (80 FR 5670, February 3, 2015).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 to supersede AD 2015–02–23, Amendment 39–18092 (80 FR 5670, February 3, 2015) (‘‘AD 2015–02–23’’). AD 2015–02–23 applied to certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL–600–1A11 (CL–600), CL–600–2A12 (CL–601), and CL–600–2B16 (CL–601–3A and CL– 601–3R Variants) airplanes. AD 2015– 02–23 corresponded to Canadian Emergency AD CF–2013–39R2, dated December 12, 2014 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Airworthiness Information, or ‘‘the MCAI’’). The MCAI was issued by Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation authority for Canada. The preamble to AD 2015–02–23 explained that we considered the requirements interim action and were considering further rulemaking. We have now determined that further rulemaking is indeed necessary and that, instead of continuing repetitive inspections, for airplanes which have any incorrectly oriented fastener, and no fractured or missing fastener, replacement of all forward and aft fasteners, regardless of condition or orientation, is necessary. This AD follows from that determination. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on April 20, 2016 (81 FR 23202). The NPRM was prompted by reports of incorrectly oriented fasteners. The NPRM proposed to continue to require repetitive inspections for fractured or incorrectly oriented fasteners on the inboard flap hinge-box forward fittings on both wings, and replacement of all fasteners if necessary. The NPRM also proposed to require replacement of the fasteners, which would terminate the requirements of this AD. We are issuing this AD to prevent incorrectly oriented or fractured fasteners, which could result in detachment of the flap hinge-box and the flap surface, and consequent reduced controllability of the airplane. 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. Conclusion We reviewed the available data and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting this AD as proposed except for 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. E:\FR\FM\14NOR1.SGM 14NOR1 79382 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 219 / Monday, November 14, 2016 / Rules and Regulations Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51 Bombardier has issued Alert Service Bulletins A600–0763, Revision 02, dated December 9, 2014, including Appendixes 1 and 2, dated September 26, 2013; and A601–0627, Revision 02, dated December 9, 2014, including Appendixes 1 and 2, dated September 26, 2013. The service information describes procedures for repetitive inspections of the fasteners on the inboard flap hinge-box forward fittings on both wings, and replacement of fasteners. These documents are distinct since they apply to different airplane models. 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 120 airplanes of U.S. registry. The actions required by AD 2015–02– 23, and retained in this AD, take about 1 work-hour 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 2015–02–23 is $85 per product. We also estimate that it would take about 59 work-hours per product to comply with the basic requirements of this AD. The average labor rate is $85 per work-hour. We have received no definitive data that would enable us to provide cost estimates for the parts cost. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this AD on U.S. operators to be $601,800, or $5,015 per product. In addition, we estimate that any necessary follow-on actions will take about 58 work-hours and require parts costing $753, for a cost of $5,683 per product. We have no way of determining the number of aircraft that might need this action. According to the manufacturer, some 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 available costs in our cost estimate. 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 Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by 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 1.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain The Boeing Company Model 777–200, –200LR, –300, and –300ER series airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report indicating that the manufacturer discovered locations where the control components and wiring of the left and right engine fuel spar valves do not have adequate physical separation to meet the redundant system separation requirements. This AD requires modifying the wiring, and installing a new relay bracket and new location for the relay on the left and right engine fuel spar valves. This AD also requires an inspection to identify the part number of the motor operated valve (MOV) actuators for the left and right engine fuel spar valves; replacement of specified MOV actuators with new MOV actuators; certain bonding resistance measurements; and applicable corrective actions. We are issuing this AD to prevent loss of control of both the left and right engine fuel spar valves during a single event, such as local wire bundle damage or a wire bundle fire, which could cause both engines to shut down or result in the inability to control an engine fire.

14 CFR Part 39

[Docket No. FAA-2016-5593; Directorate Identifier 2015-NM-184-AD; 
Amendment 39-18687; AD 2016-21-06]
RIN 2120-AA64


Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes

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

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2015-02-23, 
for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-1A11 (CL-600), CL-600-2A12 
(CL-601), and CL-600-2B16 (CL-601-3A and CL-601-3R Variants) airplanes. 
AD 2015-02-23 required repetitive inspections for fractured or 
incorrectly oriented fasteners on the inboard flap hinge-box forward 
fittings on both wings, and replacement of all fasteners if necessary. 
This new AD also requires replacement of the fasteners, which 
terminates the requirements of this AD. This AD was prompted by reports 
of incorrectly oriented fasteners. We are issuing this AD to prevent 
incorrectly oriented or fractured fasteners, which could result in 
detachment of the flap hinge-box and the flap surface, and consequent 
reduced controllability of the airplane.

DATES: This AD is effective December 19, 2016.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of certain publications listed in this AD as of February 18, 
2015 (80 FR 5670, February 3, 2015).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Discussion

    We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR 
part 39 to supersede AD 2015-02-23, Amendment 39-18092 (80 FR 5670, 
February 3, 2015) (``AD 2015-02-23''). AD 2015-02-23 applied to certain 
Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-1A11 (CL-600), CL-600-2A12 (CL-601), and 
CL-600-2B16 (CL-601-3A and CL-601-3R Variants) airplanes. AD 2015-02-23 
corresponded to Canadian Emergency AD CF-2013-39R2, dated December 12, 
2014 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness 
Information, or ``the MCAI''). The MCAI was issued by Transport Canada 
Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation authority for Canada.
    The preamble to AD 2015-02-23 explained that we considered the 
requirements interim action and were considering further rulemaking. We 
have now determined that further rulemaking is indeed necessary and 
that, instead of continuing repetitive inspections, for airplanes which 
have any incorrectly oriented fastener, and no fractured or missing 
fastener, replacement of all forward and aft fasteners, regardless of 
condition or orientation, is necessary. This AD follows from that 
determination.
    The NPRM published in the Federal Register on April 20, 2016 (81 FR 
23202). The NPRM was prompted by reports of incorrectly oriented 
fasteners. The NPRM proposed to continue to require repetitive 
inspections for fractured or incorrectly oriented fasteners on the 
inboard flap hinge-box forward fittings on both wings, and replacement 
of all fasteners if necessary. The NPRM also proposed to require 
replacement of the fasteners, which would terminate the requirements of 
this AD. We are issuing this AD to prevent incorrectly oriented or 
fractured fasteners, which could result in detachment of the flap 
hinge-box and the flap surface, and consequent reduced controllability 
of the airplane.

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.

Conclusion

    We reviewed the available data and determined that air safety and 
the public interest require adopting this AD as proposed except for 
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 Alert Service Bulletins A600-0763, Revision 
02, dated December 9, 2014, including Appendixes 1 and 2, dated 
September 26, 2013; and A601-0627, Revision 02, dated December 9, 2014, 
including Appendixes 1 and 2, dated September 26, 2013. The service 
information describes procedures for repetitive inspections of the 
fasteners on the inboard flap hinge-box forward fittings on both wings, 
and replacement of fasteners. These documents are distinct since they 
apply to different airplane models. 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 120 airplanes of U.S. registry.
    The actions required by AD 2015-02-23, and retained in this AD, 
take about 1 work-hour 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 2015-02-23 is $85 per product.
    We also estimate that it would take about 59 work-hours per product 
to comply with the basic requirements of this AD. The average labor 
rate is $85 per work-hour. We have received no definitive data that 
would enable us to provide cost estimates for the parts cost. Based on 
these figures, we estimate the cost of this AD on U.S. operators to be 
$601,800, or $5,015 per product.
    In addition, we estimate that any necessary follow-on actions will 
take about 58 work-hours and require parts costing $753, for a cost of 
$5,683 per product. We have no way of determining the number of 
aircraft that might need this action.
    According to the manufacturer, some 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 available 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.
