[FR Doc. 2017–03261 Filed 2–21–17; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–13–P DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Aviation Administration 14 CFR Part 39 [Docket No. FAA–2016–9305; Directorate Identifier 2016–NM–073–AD; Amendment 39–18804; AD 2017–04–09] Examining the AD Docket RIN 2120–AA64 Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of Transportation (DOT). ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2012–22– 12 for all Airbus Model A330–243, –243F, –341, –342, and –343 airplanes. AD 2012–22–12 required inspecting piccolo tubes and mount links, the aft side of the forward bulkhead, and outer boundary angles (OBAs); and doing corrective actions if necessary. This new AD retains certain requirements of AD 2012–22–12, and adds inspections of certain areas of the forward bulkhead, and related investigative and corrective actions if necessary. This AD was prompted by reports of cracking of air intake cowls, worn and detached attachment links, fractured thermal antiice (TAI) piccolo tubes, and loose or missing attachment rivets of the inner boundary angles (IBAs) and OBAs of the forward bulkhead. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products. DATES: This AD is effective March 29, 2017. The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in this AD as of March 29, 2017.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 to supersede AD 2012–22–12, Amendment 39–17248 (77 FR 67263, November 9, 2012) (‘‘AD 2012–22–12’’). AD 2012–22–12 applied to all Airbus Model A330–243, –243F, –341, –342, and –343 airplanes. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on November 7, 2016 (81 FR 78085). The NPRM was prompted by reports of cracking of air intake cowls on RollsRoyce Trent engines, worn and detached attachment links, fractured TAI piccolo tubes, and loose or missing attachment rivets of the IBAs and the OBAs of the forward bulkhead. The NPRM proposed to retain certain requirements of AD 2012–22–12, and add repetitive inspections for pulled, loose, and missing attachment rivets of the IBAs and OBAs of the forward bulkhead, and related investigative and corrective actions if necessary. We are PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 issuing this AD to detect and correct degraded structural integrity of the engine nose cowl, which in the case of forward bulkhead damage in conjunction with a broken piccolo tube, could lead to damage to the engine and operation in icing conditions with reduced TAI performance. The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the European Union, has issued EASA Airworthiness Directive, 2016–0086R1, dated May 13, 2016 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for all Airbus Model 330–243, –243F, –341, –342, and –343 airplanes. The MCAI states: During shop visit, cracks were found in several primary structural parts of Rolls Royce (RR) Trent 700 engine air intake cowls, specifically in the forward bulkhead web, web stiffeners and outer boundary angles (OBA). In addition, several attachment links were found severely worn, and some became detached. In two cases, the thermal anti-ice (TAI) piccolo tube was found fractured. Investigation results show that the cracks are most likely due to acoustic excitation and vibration. A broken piccolo tube, if not detected and corrected, in conjunction with forward air intake cowl bulkhead damage, could lead to in-flight detachment of the outer barrel, possibly resulting in damage to the engine or reduced control of the aeroplane. To address this potential unsafe condition, Airbus issued Service Bulletin (SB) A330– 71–3025, making reference to RR SB RB.211– 71–AG416, to provide inspection instructions, and, depending on findings, accomplishment of applicable corrective action(s). Consequently, EASA issued AD 2011–0062 [which corresponds to FAA AD 2012–22–12] to require repetitive special detailed inspections (SDI) [borescope] of the piccolo tube and affected mount links, the aft side of forward bulkhead, inner boundary angles (IBA) and OBA of the RR Trent 700 air intake cowl assemblies, and, depending on findings, accomplishment of applicable corrective action(s). Since EASA AD 2011–0062 was issued, some occurrences were reported of finding attachment rivets of the IBA and OBA either pulled, loose, or missing during inspection. It was determined that the affected IBA and OBA rivets may not have been previously inspected if operators accomplished the required inspection in accordance with the instructions of RR SB RB.211–71–AG416 at original issue. To address this potentially missed inspection, Airbus published SB A330–71– 3033, providing instructions for a one-time detailed inspection of the IBA and OBA attachment rivets, to be accomplished if the previous inspection was accomplished using the instructions of RR SB RB.211–71–AG416 at original issue. Airbus also published SB A330–71–3025 Revision 2, adding an inspection of the IBA and OBA attachment E:\FR\FM\22FER1.SGM 22FER1 11305 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 34 / Wednesday, February 22, 2017 / Rules and Regulations rivets, to be used if the previous inspection was accomplished using RR SB RB.211–71– AG416 at issue 1 or later. Airbus also published SB A330–71–3032 to introduce a modification (mod) that would eliminate the need for repetitive inspections. For the reasons described above, this [EASA] AD partially retains the requirements of EASA AD 2011–0062, which is superseded, and requires an additional [special] detailed inspection [borescope] of IBA and OBA forward bulkhead attachment rivets. This [EASA] AD also introduces an optional terminating action (Airbus mod 204615, embodied in production, which can be embodied in service with Airbus SB A330–71–3032) for the repetitive inspections required by this [EASA] AD. This [EASA] AD is revised to improve clarity, including Airbus and RR SB references and inserting Notes to identify the Part Numbers (P/N) of the affected engine air intake nose cowl assemblies. Related investigative actions include inspecting for cracked or fractured piccolo tubes and for broken piccolo tube links. Corrective actions include replacing the engine air intake cowl assembly and repair of pulled, loose, or missing rivets. The compliance times for the related investigative and corrective actions range from before further flight to within 100 flight cycles, depending on the findings of the inspections. The repetitive inspection interval for the IBAs, OBAs, and forward bulkhead varies depending on inspection findings, and ranges between 200 and 5,000 flight cycles. The repetitive inspection interval for the piccolo tubes and links is 2,500 flight cycles. You may examine the MCAI in the AD docket on the Internet at http:// www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating Docket No. FAA–2016– 9305. 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 Airbus has issued Service Bulletin A330–71–3025, Revision 02, dated December 9, 2015. This service information describes procedures for inspections of the piccolo tube and mount links, the aft side of the forward bulkhead, the IBAs, OBAs, and the forward bulkhead on the engine air intake cowl assemblies; and related investigative and corrective actions.

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.

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes

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

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2012-22-12 for 
all Airbus Model A330-243, -243F, -341, -342, and -343 airplanes. AD 
2012-22-12 required inspecting piccolo tubes and mount links, the aft 
side of the forward bulkhead, and outer boundary angles (OBAs); and 
doing corrective actions if necessary. This new AD retains certain 
requirements of AD 2012-22-12, and adds inspections of certain areas of 
the forward bulkhead, and related investigative and corrective actions 
if necessary. This AD was prompted by reports of cracking of air intake 
cowls, worn and detached attachment links, fractured thermal anti-ice 
(TAI) piccolo tubes, and loose or missing attachment rivets of the 
inner boundary angles (IBAs) and OBAs of the forward bulkhead. We are 
issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

DATES: This AD is effective March 29, 2017.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of certain publications listed in this AD as of March 29, 
2017.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion

    We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR 
part 39 to supersede AD 2012-22-12, Amendment 39-17248 (77 FR 67263, 
November 9, 2012) (``AD 2012-22-12''). AD 2012-22-12 applied to all 
Airbus Model A330-243, -243F, -341, -342, and -343 airplanes. The NPRM 
published in the Federal Register on November 7, 2016 (81 FR 78085). 
The NPRM was prompted by reports of cracking of air intake cowls on 
Rolls-Royce Trent engines, worn and detached attachment links, 
fractured TAI piccolo tubes, and loose or missing attachment rivets of 
the IBAs and the OBAs of the forward bulkhead. The NPRM proposed to 
retain certain requirements of AD 2012-22-12, and add repetitive 
inspections for pulled, loose, and missing attachment rivets of the 
IBAs and OBAs of the forward bulkhead, and related investigative and 
corrective actions if necessary. We are issuing this AD to detect and 
correct degraded structural integrity of the engine nose cowl, which in 
the case of forward bulkhead damage in conjunction with a broken 
piccolo tube, could lead to damage to the engine and operation in icing 
conditions with reduced TAI performance.
    The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical 
Agent for the Member States of the European Union, has issued EASA 
Airworthiness Directive, 2016-0086R1, dated May 13, 2016 (referred to 
after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or 
``the MCAI''), to correct an unsafe condition for all Airbus Model 330-
243, -243F, -341, -342, and -343 airplanes. The MCAI states:

    During shop visit, cracks were found in several primary 
structural parts of Rolls Royce (RR) Trent 700 engine air intake 
cowls, specifically in the forward bulkhead web, web stiffeners and 
outer boundary angles (OBA). In addition, several attachment links 
were found severely worn, and some became detached. In two cases, 
the thermal anti-ice (TAI) piccolo tube was found fractured. 
Investigation results show that the cracks are most likely due to 
acoustic excitation and vibration.
    A broken piccolo tube, if not detected and corrected, in 
conjunction with forward air intake cowl bulkhead damage, could lead 
to in-flight detachment of the outer barrel, possibly resulting in 
damage to the engine or reduced control of the aeroplane.
    To address this potential unsafe condition, Airbus issued 
Service Bulletin (SB) A330-71-3025, making reference to RR SB 
RB.211-71-AG416, to provide inspection instructions, and, depending 
on findings, accomplishment of applicable corrective action(s).
    Consequently, EASA issued AD 2011-0062 [which corresponds to FAA 
AD 2012-22-12] to require repetitive special detailed inspections 
(SDI) [borescope] of the piccolo tube and affected mount links, the 
aft side of forward bulkhead, inner boundary angles (IBA) and OBA of 
the RR Trent 700 air intake cowl assemblies, and, depending on 
findings, accomplishment of applicable corrective action(s).
    Since EASA AD 2011-0062 was issued, some occurrences were 
reported of finding attachment rivets of the IBA and OBA either 
pulled, loose, or missing during inspection. It was determined that 
the affected IBA and OBA rivets may not have been previously 
inspected if operators accomplished the required inspection in 
accordance with the instructions of RR SB RB.211-71-AG416 at 
original issue.
    To address this potentially missed inspection, Airbus published 
SB A330-71-3033, providing instructions for a one-time detailed 
inspection of the IBA and OBA attachment rivets, to be accomplished 
if the previous inspection was accomplished using the instructions 
of RR SB RB.211-71-AG416 at original issue. Airbus also published SB 
A330-71-3025 Revision 2, adding an inspection of the IBA and OBA 
attachment

[[Page 11305]]

rivets, to be used if the previous inspection was accomplished using 
RR SB RB.211-71-AG416 at issue 1 or later. Airbus also published SB 
A330-71-3032 to introduce a modification (mod) that would eliminate 
the need for repetitive inspections.
    For the reasons described above, this [EASA] AD partially 
retains the requirements of EASA AD 2011-0062, which is superseded, 
and requires an additional [special] detailed inspection [borescope] 
of IBA and OBA forward bulkhead attachment rivets. This [EASA] AD 
also introduces an optional terminating action (Airbus mod 204615, 
embodied in production, which can be embodied in service with Airbus 
SB A330-71-3032) for the repetitive inspections required by this 
[EASA] AD.
    This [EASA] AD is revised to improve clarity, including Airbus 
and RR SB references and inserting Notes to identify the Part 
Numbers (P/N) of the affected engine air intake nose cowl 
assemblies.

    Related investigative actions include inspecting for cracked or 
fractured piccolo tubes and for broken piccolo tube links. Corrective 
actions include replacing the engine air intake cowl assembly and 
repair of pulled, loose, or missing rivets.
    The compliance times for the related investigative and corrective 
actions range from before further flight to within 100 flight cycles, 
depending on the findings of the inspections.
    The repetitive inspection interval for the IBAs, OBAs, and forward 
bulkhead varies depending on inspection findings, and ranges between 
200 and 5,000 flight cycles. The repetitive inspection interval for the 
piccolo tubes and links is 2,500 flight cycles.
    You may examine the MCAI in the AD docket on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating Docket No. FAA-2016-
9305.

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.

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.
