Discussion Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation authority for Canada, has issued Canadian Airworthiness Directive CF–2017–06, effective February 14, 2017 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for all Bombardier, Inc., Model CL–600– 2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440), Model CL–600–2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701, & 702), Model CL–600– 2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705), and Model CL–600–2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900) airplanes. The MCAI states: [Canadian] AD CF–2013–13 was issued on 28 May 2013 [related to FAA AD 2013–14– 11, Amendment 39–17516 (78 FR 44781, July 25, 2013) (‘‘AD 2013–14–11’’)] to mandate the introduction of an emergency procedure to the Aeroplane Flight Manual to address the uncommanded rudder movement. Since the original issue of [Canadian] AD CF–2013–13, Bombardier Aerospace has developed a wiring modification for the yaw damper control system to prevent uncommanded movement of the rudder [and consequent loss of the ability to control the airplane]. This [Canadian] AD mandates the wiring modification for the yaw damper control system * * *. 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–2017– 0495. Related Rulemaking On July 11, 2013, we issued AD 2013– 14–11, applicable to all Bombardier, Inc., Model CL–600–2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440), Model CL–600–2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701, & 702), Model CL–600–2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705), and Model CL–600–2D24 PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 (Regional Jet Series 900) airplanes. That AD requires revising the airplane flight manual by incorporating an emergency procedure for uncommanded yaw motion. That AD was prompted by reports of airplanes experiencing uncommanded rudder movements while in flight. That AD was issued to advise the flightcrew of procedures to address a possible failure of the voltage regulator inside the yaw damper actuator that could lead to uncommanded rudder movement and consequent loss of the ability to control the airplane. Since issuance of AD 2013–14–11, a wiring modification for the yaw damper control system has been developed to prevent uncommanded rudder movement. Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51 We reviewed Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R–22–017, Revision C, dated May 11, 2016; and Bombardier Service Bulletin 670BA–22–007, Revision A, dated February 16, 2016. This service information describes procedures for modifying the wiring harness of the yaw damper control system. 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. 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 1,006 airplanes of U.S. registry. We estimate the following costs to comply with this proposed AD: E:\FR\FM\31MYP1.SGM 31MYP1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 103 / Wednesday, May 31, 2017 / Proposed Rules 24899 ESTIMATED COSTS Action Labor cost Parts cost Cost per product Wiring modification ........ 5 work-hours × $85 per hour = $425 Up to $39 ...................... Up to $464 .................... According to the manufacturer, some of the costs of this proposed 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 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 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 Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by 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 Up to $466,784.

Discussion

    Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation 
authority for Canada, has issued Canadian Airworthiness Directive CF-
2017-06, effective February 14, 2017 (referred to after this as the 
Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ``the MCAI''), to 
correct an unsafe condition for all Bombardier, Inc., Model CL-600-2B19 
(Regional Jet Series 100 & 440), Model CL-600-2C10 (Regional Jet Series 
700, 701, & 702), Model CL-600-2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705), and 
Model CL-600-2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900) airplanes. The MCAI states:

    [Canadian] AD CF-2013-13 was issued on 28 May 2013 [related to 
FAA AD 2013-14-11, Amendment 39-17516 (78 FR 44781, July 25, 2013) 
(``AD 2013-14-11'')] to mandate the introduction of an emergency 
procedure to the Aeroplane Flight Manual to address the uncommanded 
rudder movement.
    Since the original issue of [Canadian] AD CF-2013-13, Bombardier 
Aerospace has developed a wiring modification for the yaw damper 
control system to prevent uncommanded movement of the rudder [and 
consequent loss of the ability to control the airplane].
    This [Canadian] AD mandates the wiring modification for the yaw 
damper control system * * *.

    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-2017-
0495.

Related Rulemaking

    On July 11, 2013, we issued AD 2013-14-11, applicable to all 
Bombardier, Inc., Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440), 
Model CL-600-2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701, & 702), Model CL-600-
2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705), and Model CL-600-2D24 (Regional Jet 
Series 900) airplanes. That AD requires revising the airplane flight 
manual by incorporating an emergency procedure for uncommanded yaw 
motion. That AD was prompted by reports of airplanes experiencing 
uncommanded rudder movements while in flight. That AD was issued to 
advise the flightcrew of procedures to address a possible failure of 
the voltage regulator inside the yaw damper actuator that could lead to 
uncommanded rudder movement and consequent loss of the ability to 
control the airplane.
    Since issuance of AD 2013-14-11, a wiring modification for the yaw 
damper control system has been developed to prevent uncommanded rudder 
movement.

Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51

    We reviewed Bombardier Service Bulletin 601R-22-017, Revision C, 
dated May 11, 2016; and Bombardier Service Bulletin 670BA-22-007, 
Revision A, dated February 16, 2016. This service information describes 
procedures for modifying the wiring harness of the yaw damper control 
system. 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.

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 1,006 airplanes of U.S. 
registry.
    We estimate the following costs to comply with this proposed AD:

[[Page 24899]]



                                                 Estimated Costs
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                                                 Cost on U.S.
             Action                   Labor cost          Parts cost       Cost per product        operators
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wiring modification.............  5 work-hours x $85  Up to $39.........  Up to $464........  Up to $466,784.
                                   per hour = $425.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    According to the manufacturer, some of the costs of this proposed 
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 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 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.
