SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion We issued a supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking (SNPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 to supersede AD 2012–23–09, Amendment 39–17265 (77 FR 73270, December 10, 2012) (‘‘AD 2012–23–09’’). AD 2012–23–09 applied to all Embraer S.A. Model ERJ 190–100 STD, –100 LR, and –100 IGW airplanes; and Model ERJ 190–200 STD, –200 LR, and –200 IGW airplanes. The SNPRM published in the Federal Register on May 22, 2017 (82 FR 23153) (‘‘the SNPRM’’). We preceded the SNPRM with a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) that published in the Federal PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Register on February 3, 2014 (79 FR 6106) (‘‘the NPRM’’). The NPRM was prompted by our determination that more restrictive maintenance requirements and airworthiness limitations are necessary. The NPRM proposed to require revising the maintenance or inspection program to incorporate modifications in the airworthiness limitations specified in the Embraer S.A. ERJ 190/195 MRBR to include new inspection tasks and their respective thresholds and intervals. The SNPRM proposed to revise the NPRM by adding a requirement to revise the maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new airworthiness limitations and by adding certain airplanes to the applicability. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct fatigue cracking of structural components, which could result in reduced structural integrity of the airplane. ˆ The Agencia Nacional de Aviacao ¸˜ Civil (ANAC), which is the aviation authority for Brazil, has issued Brazilian Airworthiness Directive 2016–04–01, effective April 4, 2016 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition on certain Embraer S.A. Model ERJ 190– 100 STD, –100 LR, –100 IGW, and –100 ECJ airplanes; and Model ERJ 190–200 STD, –200 LR, and –200 IGW airplanes. The MCAI states: This [Brazilian] AD was prompted by a determination that existing maintenance requirements and airworthiness limitations are inadequate to ensure the structural integrity of the airplane. We are issuing this [Brazilian] AD to prevent failure of certain system components, which could result in reduced structural integrity of the airplane. The required action is revising the maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate the airworthiness limitations. 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–2014– 0008. Comments We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We received no comments on the SNPRM or on the determination of the cost to the public. E:\FR\FM\06SER1.SGM 06SER1 42022 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 171 / Wednesday, September 6, 2017 / Rules and Regulations 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 SNPRM for correcting the unsafe condition; and • Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was already proposed in the SNPRM.

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. This AD is issued in accordance with authority delegated by the Executive Director, Aircraft Certification Service, as authorized by FAA Order 8000.51C. In accordance with that order, issuance of ADs is normally a function of the Compliance and Airworthiness Division, but during this transition period, the Executive Director has delegated the authority to issue ADs applicable to transport category airplanes to the Director of the System Oversight Division. under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. Regulatory Findings Adoption of the Amendment 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 Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the FAA amends 14 CFR part 39 as follows: VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:36 Sep 05, 2017 Jkt 241001 PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Parts cost Cost on U.S. operators Action List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by reference, Safety.

ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2011–03– 08, which applied to certain Bombardier, Inc., Model CL–215–1A10 (CL–215), CL–215–6B11 (CL–215T Variant), and CL–215–6B11 (CL–415 Variant) airplanes. AD 2011–03–08 required an inspection to determine the number of flight cycles accumulated by certain accumulators installed on the airplane, and repetitive inspections of the accumulators for cracks, and replacement if necessary. This AD retains those inspections and the accumulator replacement if necessary, and adds a new terminating action to address the identified unsafe condition. This AD was prompted by the development of a terminating action for the repetitive inspections. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

39-18985; AD 2017-16-08]
RIN 2120-AA64


Airworthiness Directives; Embraer S.A. Airplanes

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

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2012-23-09, 
which applied to all Embraer S.A. Model ERJ 190-100 STD, -100 LR, and -
100 IGW airplanes; and Model ERJ 190-200 STD, -200 LR, and -200 IGW 
airplanes. AD 2012-23-09 required revising the maintenance program to 
incorporate certain modifications in airworthiness limitations. This 
new AD requires revising the maintenance or inspection program to 
incorporate certain modifications in the airworthiness limitations to 
include new inspection tasks and their respective thresholds and 
intervals. This AD was prompted by our determination that more 
restrictive maintenance requirements and airworthiness limitations are 
necessary. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on 
these products.

DATES: This AD is effective October 11, 2017.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Discussion

    We issued a supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking (SNPRM) to 
amend 14 CFR part 39 to supersede AD 2012-23-09, Amendment 39-17265 (77 
FR 73270, December 10, 2012) (``AD 2012-23-09''). AD 2012-23-09 applied 
to all Embraer S.A. Model ERJ 190-100 STD, -100 LR, and -100 IGW 
airplanes; and Model ERJ 190-200 STD, -200 LR, and -200 IGW airplanes. 
The SNPRM published in the Federal Register on May 22, 2017 (82 FR 
23153) (``the SNPRM''). We preceded the SNPRM with a notice of proposed 
rulemaking (NPRM) that published in the Federal Register on February 3, 
2014 (79 FR 6106) (``the NPRM''). The NPRM was prompted by our 
determination that more restrictive maintenance requirements and 
airworthiness limitations are necessary. The NPRM proposed to require 
revising the maintenance or inspection program to incorporate 
modifications in the airworthiness limitations specified in the Embraer 
S.A. ERJ 190/195 MRBR to include new inspection tasks and their 
respective thresholds and intervals. The SNPRM proposed to revise the 
NPRM by adding a requirement to revise the maintenance or inspection 
program, as applicable, to incorporate new airworthiness limitations 
and by adding certain airplanes to the applicability. We are issuing 
this AD to detect and correct fatigue cracking of structural 
components, which could result in reduced structural integrity of the 
airplane.
    The Ag[ecirc]ncia Nacional de Avia[ccedil][atilde]o Civil (ANAC), 
which is the aviation authority for Brazil, has issued Brazilian 
Airworthiness Directive 2016-04-01, effective April 4, 2016 (referred 
to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or 
``the MCAI''), to correct an unsafe condition on certain Embraer S.A. 
Model ERJ 190-100 STD, -100 LR, -100 IGW, and -100 ECJ airplanes; and 
Model ERJ 190-200 STD, -200 LR, and -200 IGW airplanes. The MCAI 
states:

    This [Brazilian] AD was prompted by a determination that 
existing maintenance requirements and airworthiness limitations are 
inadequate to ensure the structural integrity of the airplane. We 
are issuing this [Brazilian] AD to prevent failure of certain system 
components, which could result in reduced structural integrity of 
the airplane.

    The required action is revising the maintenance or inspection 
program, as applicable, to incorporate the airworthiness limitations.
    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-2014-
0008.

Comments

    We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing 
this AD. We received no comments on the SNPRM or on the determination 
of the cost to the public.

[[Page 42022]]

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 
SNPRM for correcting the unsafe condition; and
     Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was 
already proposed in the SNPRM.

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.
    This AD is issued in accordance with authority delegated by the 
Executive Director, Aircraft Certification Service, as authorized by 
FAA Order 8000.51C. In accordance with that order, issuance of ADs is 
normally a function of the Compliance and Airworthiness Division, but 
during this transition period, the Executive Director has delegated the 
authority to issue ADs applicable to transport category airplanes to 
the Director of the System Oversight Division.

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.
