Discussion The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the European Union, has issued EASA AD 2018– 0007R1, dated January 19, 2018 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for all Airbus Model A318 series; Model A319 series; Model A320 series; and Model A321–111, –112, –131, –211, –212, –213, –231, and –232 airplanes. The MCAI states: Occurrences were reported on multiple Angle of Attack (AoA) probes blockages. Investigation results indicated the need for improved AoA monitoring in order to detect cases of AoA probe blockage. This condition, if not corrected, could lead to undue activation of the AoA protection, reverting to manual control of the aeroplane, which, under specific circumstances, could result in reduced control of the aeroplane. To address this potential unsafe condition, Airbus developed several Elevator Aileron Computer (ELAC) standards, i.e. ELAC units loaded with a specific software Part Number (P/N), and EASA issued AD 2017–0008, retaining part of the requirements of EASA AD 2015–0088R1 [which corresponds to FAA AD 2016–17–03, Amendment 39–18616 (81 FR 55358, August 19, 2016) (‘‘AD 2016–17– 03’’)], which was superseded, and requiring an upgrade of all ELAC units with ELAC L99 standard, which introduces improvements in the AoA probe monitoring for Current Engine Option (CEO) aeroplanes, and also incorporates flight control aspects for New Engine Option (NEO) aeroplanes. Since that [EASA] AD was issued, it was determined that clarification is necessary for the Parts Installation requirements, and some typographical (P/N) errors were detected. This [EASA] AD is revised accordingly. 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–2018– 0556. Relationship of Proposed AD to AD 2016–17–03 This NPRM does not propose to supersede AD 2016–17–03. Rather, we have determined that a stand-alone AD would be more appropriate to address the changes in the MCAI. This proposed AD would require all ELAC units to be upgraded with new software, or replaced with upgraded units. Accomplishment of the proposed actions would then terminate all of the requirements of AD 2016–17–03. Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51 Airbus has issued Service Bulletin A320–27–1263, Revision 00, dated April 28, 2017; and Service Bulletin A320– 27–1264, Revision 00, dated April 28, 2017. The service information describes the upgrade or replacement of ELAC units. These documents are distinct because they apply to different airplane configurations. 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 designs. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this proposed AD affects 1,250 airplanes of U.S. registry. We estimate the following costs to comply with this proposed AD: sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with PROPOSALS ESTIMATED COSTS Action Labor cost Parts cost Cost per product Modification ................ 3 work-hours × $85 per hour = $255 ............. Up to $7,970 .............. Up to $8,225 .............. Authority for This Rulemaking Title 49 of the United States Code specifies the FAA’s authority to issue VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:51 Jun 19, 2018 Jkt 244001 rules on aviation safety. Subtitle I, section 106, describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. ‘‘Subtitle VII: PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 Cost on U.S. operators Up to $10,281,250 Aviation Programs,’’ describes in more detail the scope of the Agency’s authority. E:\FR\FM\20JNP1.SGM 20JNP1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 119 / Wednesday, June 20, 2018 / Proposed Rules 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 proposed 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. sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with PROPOSALS 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; VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:51 Jun 19, 2018 Jkt 244001 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.

Discussion

    The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical 
Agent for the Member States of the European Union, has issued EASA AD 
2018-0007R1, dated January 19, 2018 (referred to after this as the 
Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ``the MCAI''), to 
correct an unsafe condition for all Airbus Model A318 series; Model 
A319 series; Model A320 series; and Model A321-111, -112, -131, -211, -
212, -213, -231, and -232 airplanes. The MCAI states:

    Occurrences were reported on multiple Angle of Attack (AoA) 
probes blockages. Investigation results indicated the need for 
improved AoA monitoring in order to detect cases of AoA probe 
blockage.
    This condition, if not corrected, could lead to undue activation 
of the AoA protection, reverting to manual control of the aeroplane, 
which, under specific circumstances, could result in reduced control 
of the aeroplane.
    To address this potential unsafe condition, Airbus developed 
several Elevator Aileron Computer (ELAC) standards, i.e. ELAC units 
loaded with a specific software Part Number (P/N), and EASA issued 
AD 2017-0008, retaining part of the requirements of EASA AD 2015-
0088R1 [which corresponds to FAA AD 2016-17-03, Amendment 39-18616 
(81 FR 55358, August 19, 2016) (``AD 2016-17-03'')], which was 
superseded, and requiring an upgrade of all ELAC units with ELAC L99 
standard, which introduces improvements in the AoA probe monitoring 
for Current Engine Option (CEO) aeroplanes, and also incorporates 
flight control aspects for New Engine Option (NEO) aeroplanes.
    Since that [EASA] AD was issued, it was determined that 
clarification is necessary for the Parts Installation requirements, 
and some typographical (P/N) errors were detected. This [EASA] AD is 
revised accordingly.

    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-2018-
0556.

Relationship of Proposed AD to AD 2016-17-03

    This NPRM does not propose to supersede AD 2016-17-03. Rather, we 
have determined that a stand-alone AD would be more appropriate to 
address the changes in the MCAI. This proposed AD would require all 
ELAC units to be upgraded with new software, or replaced with upgraded 
units. Accomplishment of the proposed actions would then terminate all 
of the requirements of AD 2016-17-03.

Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51

    Airbus has issued Service Bulletin A320-27-1263, Revision 00, dated 
April 28, 2017; and Service Bulletin A320-27-1264, Revision 00, dated 
April 28, 2017. The service information describes the upgrade or 
replacement of ELAC units. These documents are distinct because they 
apply to different airplane configurations.
    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 designs.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this proposed AD affects 1,250 airplanes of U.S. 
registry.
    We estimate the following costs to comply with this proposed AD:

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

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.

[[Page 28557]]

    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 proposed 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 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:
