We will also post a report summarizing each substantive verbal contact we receive about this proposed AD. asabaliauskas on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with PROPOSALS Discussion On April 4, 2014, we issued AD 2014– 07–09, Amendment 39–17823 (79 FR 22367; April 22, 2014). That AD required actions intended to address an unsafe condition on British Aerospace Regional Aircraft Model Jetstream Series 3101 and Jetstream Model 3201 airplanes and was based on mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country. Since we issued AD 2014–07–09, more extensive reports of corrosion have been received, resulting in the need to inspect additional areas. The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the European Community, has issued EASA AD No.: 2017–0073, dated April 27, 2017 (referred to after this as ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for the specified products. The MCAI states: Maintenance instructions for BAE Jetstream 3100 and 3200 aeroplanes, which are approved by EASA, are currently defined and published in the BAE Systems (Operations) Ltd Jetstream Series 3100 & 3200 Corrosion Prevention and Control Programme (CPCP) document, JS/CPCP/01. These instructions have been identified as mandatory for continued airworthiness. Failure to accomplish these instructions could result in an unsafe condition. EASA issued AD 2012–0036 to require operators to comply with the inspection instructions as contained in the CPCP at Revision 6. Since that AD was issued, reports have been received of finding extensive corrosion. While affected areas are covered by an existing zonal inspection, it has been determined that this inspection is inadequate to identify the corrosion in those areas. Consequently, new inspection items 52–11– VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:12 Jun 22, 2017 Jkt 241001 002 C1, 200/EX/01 C2, 500/IN/02 C1, 600/IN/ 04 C1 and 700/IN/04 C1 have been added to the CPCP at Revision 8. For the reason described above, this [EASA] AD retains the requirements of EASA AD 2012–0036, which is superseded, and requires accomplishment of the actions specified in BAE Systems (Operations) Ltd Jetstream Series 3100 & 3200 CPCP, JS/CPCP/ 01, Revision 8 (hereafter referred to as ‘the CPCP’ in this AD). You may examine the MCAI on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating Docket No. FAA–2017–0639. Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51 BAE Systems (Operations) Limited has issued British Aerospace Jetstream Series 3100 & 3200 Corrosion Prevention and Control Programme, Manual Ref: JS/CPCP/01, Revision 8, dated October 15, 2016. The service information describes procedures for a comprehensive corrosion prevent and control program. 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 of this NPRM. FAA’s Determination and Requirements of the 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 this State of Design Authority, they have notified us of the unsafe condition described in the MCAI and service information referenced above. We are proposing this AD because we evaluated all information and determined the 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 will affect 42 products of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it would take about 100 work-hours per product to comply with the basic requirements of this proposed AD. The average labor rate is $85 per work-hour. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of the proposed AD on U.S. operators to be $357,000, or $8,500 per product. The scope of damage found in the required inspection could vary significantly from airplane to airplane. We have no way of determining how much damage may be found on each airplane or the cost to repair damaged parts on each airplane or the number of airplanes that may require repair. PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 28593 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 1. The authority citation for part 39 continues to read as follows: ■ Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701.

The FAA amends § 39.13 by removing Amendment 39–17823 (79 FR 22367; April 22, 2014), and adding the following new AD: ■ British Aerospace Regional Aircraft: Docket No. FAA–2017–0639; Directorate Identifier 2017–CE–016–AD. (a) Comments Due Date We must receive comments by August 7, 2017. (b) Affected ADs This AD replaces AD 2014–07–09, Amendment 39–17823 (79 FR 22367; April 22, 2014) (‘‘2014–07–09’’). (c) Applicability This AD applies to British Aerospace Regional Aircraft Jetstream Series 3101 and Jetstream Model 3201 airplanes, all serial numbers, certificated in any category. (d) Subject Air Transport Association of America (ATA) Code 5: Time Limits. asabaliauskas on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with PROPOSALS (e) Reason This AD was prompted by mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as inadequate instructions for inspection for corrosion on the rudder upper hinge bracket and certain internal wing stations and drainage paths. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct corrosion on the rudder upper hinge bracket and internal wing, areas of the passenger/ crew door hinges and supporting structure, the main spar joint, and the engine support attachment bolts, which could lead to reduced structural integrity of the airplane with consequent loss of control. (f) Actions and Compliance Comply with paragraphs (f)(1) through (3) of this AD within the compliance times specified, unless already done: (1) Before further flight after the effective date of this AD, incorporate BAE Systems (Operations) Limited Jetstream Series 3100 & 3200 Corrosion Prevention and Control Programme, Manual Ref. JS/CPCP/01, Revision 8, dated October 15, 2016, into the Limitations of your FAA-approved maintenance program (instructions for continued airworthiness) on the basis of which the operator or the owner ensures the continuing airworthiness of each operated airplane, as applicable to the airplane model. (2) Do all tasks at the times specified in BAE Systems (Operations) Limited Jetstream Series 3100 & 3200 Corrosion Prevention and Control Programme, Manual Ref. JS/CPCP/01, Revision 8, dated October 15, 2016, or within the next 12 months after the effective date of this AD, whichever occurs later, except for the following, which must be done within 12 months after the effective date of this AD: 52–11–002 C1, 200/EX/01 C2, 500/IN/02 C1, 600/IN/04 C1, and 700/IN/04 C1.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

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

SUMMARY: We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for 
British Aerospace Regional Aircraft Jetstream Series 3101 and Jetstream 
Model 3201 airplanes that would supersede AD 2014-07-09. This proposed 
AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) 
originated by an aviation authority of another country to identify and 
correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes 
the unsafe condition as inadequate instructions for inspection for 
corrosion on the rudder upper hinge bracket and certain internal wing 
and drainage paths. We are issuing this proposed AD to require actions 
to address the unsafe condition on these products.

Discussion

    On April 4, 2014, we issued AD 2014-07-09, Amendment 39-17823 (79 
FR 22367; April 22, 2014). That AD required actions intended to address 
an unsafe condition on British Aerospace Regional Aircraft Model 
Jetstream Series 3101 and Jetstream Model 3201 airplanes and was based 
on mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by 
an aviation authority of another country.
    Since we issued AD 2014-07-09, more extensive reports of corrosion 
have been received, resulting in the need to inspect additional areas.
    The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical 
Agent for the Member States of the European Community, has issued EASA 
AD No.: 2017-0073, dated April 27, 2017 (referred to after this as 
``the MCAI''), to correct an unsafe condition for the specified 
products. The MCAI states:

    Maintenance instructions for BAE Jetstream 3100 and 3200 
aeroplanes, which are approved by EASA, are currently defined and 
published in the BAE Systems (Operations) Ltd Jetstream Series 3100 
& 3200 Corrosion Prevention and Control Programme (CPCP) document, 
JS/CPCP/01. These instructions have been identified as mandatory for 
continued airworthiness.
    Failure to accomplish these instructions could result in an 
unsafe condition.
    EASA issued AD 2012-0036 to require operators to comply with the 
inspection instructions as contained in the CPCP at Revision 6.
    Since that AD was issued, reports have been received of finding 
extensive corrosion. While affected areas are covered by an existing 
zonal inspection, it has been determined that this inspection is 
inadequate to identify the corrosion in those areas. Consequently, 
new inspection items 52-11-002 C1, 200/EX/01 C2, 500/IN/02 C1, 600/
IN/04 C1 and 700/IN/04 C1 have been added to the CPCP at Revision 8.
    For the reason described above, this [EASA] AD retains the 
requirements of EASA AD 2012-0036, which is superseded, and requires 
accomplishment of the actions specified in BAE Systems (Operations) 
Ltd Jetstream Series 3100 & 3200 CPCP, JS/CPCP/01, Revision 8 
(hereafter referred to as `the CPCP' in this AD).

    You may examine the MCAI on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating Docket No. FAA-2017-
0639.

Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51

    BAE Systems (Operations) Limited has issued British Aerospace 
Jetstream Series 3100 & 3200 Corrosion Prevention and Control 
Programme, Manual Ref: JS/CPCP/01, Revision 8, dated October 15, 2016. 
The service information describes procedures for a comprehensive 
corrosion prevent and control program. 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 of this NPRM.

FAA's Determination and Requirements of the 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 this State of Design Authority, they 
have notified us of the unsafe condition described in the MCAI and 
service information referenced above. We are proposing this AD because 
we evaluated all information and determined the 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 will affect 42 products of U.S. 
registry. We also estimate that it would take about 100 work-hours per 
product to comply with the basic requirements of this proposed AD. The 
average labor rate is $85 per work-hour.
    Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of the proposed AD on 
U.S. operators to be $357,000, or $8,500 per product.
    The scope of damage found in the required inspection could vary 
significantly from airplane to airplane. We have no way of determining 
how much damage may be found on each airplane or the cost to repair 
damaged parts on each airplane or the number of airplanes that may 
require repair.

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

0
1. The authority citation for part 39 continues to read as follows:

    Authority:  49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701.

[[Page 28594]]

Sec.  39.13  [Amended]

0
2. The FAA amends Sec.  39.13 by removing Amendment 39-17823 (79 FR 
22367; April 22, 2014), and adding the following new AD:

British Aerospace Regional Aircraft: Docket No. FAA-2017-0639; 
Directorate Identifier 2017-CE-016-AD.

(a) Comments Due Date

    We must receive comments by August 7, 2017.

(b) Affected ADs

    This AD replaces AD 2014-07-09, Amendment 39-17823 (79 FR 22367; 
April 22, 2014) (``2014-07-09'').

(c) Applicability

    This AD applies to British Aerospace Regional Aircraft Jetstream 
Series 3101 and Jetstream Model 3201 airplanes, all serial numbers, 
certificated in any category.

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association of America (ATA) Code 5: Time Limits.

(e) Reason

    This AD was prompted by mandatory continuing airworthiness 
information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another 
country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation 
product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as inadequate 
instructions for inspection for corrosion on the rudder upper hinge 
bracket and certain internal wing stations and drainage paths. We 
are issuing this AD to detect and correct corrosion on the rudder 
upper hinge bracket and internal wing, areas of the passenger/crew 
door hinges and supporting structure, the main spar joint, and the 
engine support attachment bolts, which could lead to reduced 
structural integrity of the airplane with consequent loss of 
control.

(f) Actions and Compliance

    Comply with paragraphs (f)(1) through (3) of this AD within the 
compliance times specified, unless already done:
    (1) Before further flight after the effective date of this AD, 
incorporate BAE Systems (Operations) Limited Jetstream Series 3100 & 
3200 Corrosion Prevention and Control Programme, Manual Ref. JS/
CPCP/01, Revision 8, dated October 15, 2016, into the Limitations of 
your FAA-approved maintenance program (instructions for continued 
airworthiness) on the basis of which the operator or the owner 
ensures the continuing airworthiness of each operated airplane, as 
applicable to the airplane model.
    (2) Do all tasks at the times specified in BAE Systems 
(Operations) Limited Jetstream Series 3100 & 3200 Corrosion 
Prevention and Control Programme, Manual Ref. JS/CPCP/01, Revision 
8, dated October 15, 2016, or within the next 12 months after the 
effective date of this AD, whichever occurs later, except for the 
following, which must be done within 12 months after the effective 
date of this AD: 52-11-002 C1, 200/EX/01 C2, 500/IN/02 C1, 600/IN/04 
C1, and 700/IN/04 C1.
    (3) If any discrepancy, particularly corrosion, is found during 
any inspections or tasks required by paragraphs (f)(1) or (2) of 
this AD, within the compliance time specified, repair or replace, as 
applicable, all damaged structural parts and components and do the 
maintenance procedures for corrective action following BAE Systems 
(Operations) Limited Jetstream Series 3100 & 3200 Corrosion 
Prevention and Control Programme, Manual Ref. JS/CPCP/01, Revision 
8, dated October 15, 2016. If no compliance time is defined, do the 
applicable corrective action before further flight.

(g) Other FAA AD Provisions

    The following provisions also apply to this AD:
    (1) Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs): The Manager, 
Standards Office, FAA, has the authority to approve AMOCs for this 
AD, if requested using the procedures found in 14 CFR 39.19. Send 
information to ATTN: Doug Rudolph, Aerospace Engineer, FAA, Small
