[FR Doc. 2018–20357 Filed 9–25–18; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–13–P DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Aviation Administration 14 CFR Part 39 [Docket No. FAA–2018–0412; Product Identifier 2017–NM–180–AD; Amendment 39–19420; AD 2018–19–20] RIN 2120–AA64 Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT. ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2010–25– 06, which applied to certain The Boeing Company Model 737–200, –300, –400, and –500 series airplanes. AD 2010–25– 06 required repetitive inspections for cracking of certain fuselage frames and stub beams, and corrective actions if necessary. AD 2010–25–06 also provided for an optional repair, which terminated the repetitive inspections. For airplanes on which a certain repair was done, AD 2010–25–06 also required repetitive inspections for cracking of certain fuselage frames and stub beams, and corrective actions if necessary. This AD retains the actions required by AD 2010–25–06 and expands the inspection area. This AD was prompted by additional cracking found in areas not covered by the inspections in AD 2010– 25–06. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products. SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 48527 This AD is effective October 31, 2018.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 to supersede AD 2010–25–06, Amendment 39–16539 (75 FR 81409, December 28, 2010) (‘‘AD 2010–25– 06’’). AD 2010–25–06 applied to certain Model 737–200, –300, –400, and –500 series airplanes. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on May 15, 2018 (83 FR 22422). The NPRM was prompted by additional cracking found in areas not covered by the inspections in AD 2010–25–06. The NPRM proposed to retain the actions required by AD 2010–25–06 and expand the inspection area. We are issuing this AD E:\FR\FM\26SER1.SGM 26SER1 48528 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 187 / Wednesday, September 26, 2018 / Rules and Regulations to address fatigue cracking of certain fuselage frames and stub beams and possible severed frames, which could result in reduced structural integrity of the frames. This reduced structural integrity can increase loading in the fuselage skin, which will accelerate skin crack growth and could result in rapid decompression of the fuselage. Comments We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. The following presents the comments received on the NPRM and the FAA’s response to each comment. Effect of Winglets on Accomplishment of the Proposed Actions Aviation Partners Boeing stated that accomplishing the supplemental type certificate (STC) ST01219SE does not affect the actions specified in the NPRM. We agree with the commenter. We have redesignated paragraph (c) of the proposed AD as paragraph (c)(1) of this AD and added paragraph (c)(2) to this AD to state that installation of STC ST01219SE does not affect the ability to accomplish the actions required by this AD. Therefore, for airplanes on which STC ST01219SE is installed, a ‘‘change in product’’ alternative method of compliance (AMOC) approval request is not necessary to comply with the requirements of 14 CFR 39.17. Request To Clarify Compliance Language Boeing asked that the compliance language in paragraphs (g), (h), (i), (j) and (k) of the proposed AD be changed since there are multiple conditions and compliance times specified in paragraph 1.E., ‘‘Compliance’’ of the referenced service information. Boeing asked that the wording in these paragraphs be changed from ‘‘at the applicable time’’ specified in tables 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 9, respectively, to ‘‘at the applicable condition and time’’ specified in tables 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 9, respectively. Boeing stated that these changes would provide clarification. Although we do not agree to revise this AD as requested by the commenter, we agree to clarify the compliance language. The phrase ‘‘at the applicable time’’ means the compliance time associated with a given condition, as specified in the applicable table in paragraph 1.E., ‘‘Compliance,’’ of Boeing Alert Service Bulletin 737–53A1254, Revision 3, dated November 13, 2017. We have not changed this AD in this regard. Addition of Omitted Word We inadvertently omitted the word ‘‘in’’ prior to the word ‘‘table’’ in the phrase ‘‘. . . the applicable time specified table . . .’’ in certain sentences in paragraphs (g), (h), (i), and (j) of the proposed AD. We have revised the applicable sentences in paragraphs (g), (h), (i), and (j) of this AD to read ‘‘. . . the applicable time specified in table. . . .’’ Conclusion We reviewed the relevant data, considered the comments received, and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting this AD with the changes described previously, and minor editorial changes. We have determined that these minor changes: • Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the NPRM for addressing the unsafe condition; and • Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was already proposed in the NPRM. We also determined that these changes will not increase the economic burden on any operator or increase the scope of this AD. Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51 We reviewed Boeing Alert Service Bulletin 737–53A1254, Revision 3, dated November 13, 2017. This service information describes procedures for detailed and eddy current inspections of the fuselage frame and over wing stub beam at body station (BS) 616, BS 639, and BS 597 or BS 601, and buttock line (BL) 45.5 floor beam web at the BS 639 stub beam attachment, and related investigative and corrective actions. 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. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this AD affects 67 airplanes of U.S. registry. We estimate the following costs to comply with this AD: ESTIMATED COSTS FOR REQUIRED ACTIONS Action Labor cost Inspections ............................. Up to 67 work-hours × $85 per hour = $5,695 per inspection cycle. We estimate the following costs to do certain necessary repairs/replacements that would be required based on the Cost per product Parts cost $0 Cost on U.S. operators Up to $5,695 per inspection cycle. results of the inspections. We have no way of determining the number of Up to $381,565 per inspection cycle. aircraft that might need these repairs/ replacements: daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with RULES ON-CONDITION COSTS Action ** Labor cost Parts cost Repairs/replacements .................................................. Up to 76 work-hours × $85 per hour = $6,460 .......... * Cost per product Up to $6,460. * All required parts are supplied by the operator. This cost is minimal, and we have no way to determine what an operator would pay for these parts. ** We have received no definitive data that would enable us to provide cost estimates for certain other repairs specified in this AD. Authority for This Rulemaking Title 49 of the United States Code specifies the FAA’s authority to issue VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:04 Sep 25, 2018 Jkt 244001 rules on aviation safety. Subtitle I, Section 106, describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the Agency’s authority. E:\FR\FM\26SER1.SGM 26SER1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 187 / Wednesday, September 26, 2018 / Rules and Regulations 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 and associated appliances to the Director of the System Oversight Division. Regulatory Findings We have 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 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. daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with RULES List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by reference, Safety. Adoption of the Amendment Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the FAA amends 14 CFR part 39 as follows: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:04 Sep 25, 2018 Jkt 244001 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. § 39.13 [Amended] 2. The FAA amends § 39.13 by removing Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2010–25–06, Amendment 39–16539 (75 FR 81409, December 28, 2010), and adding the following new AD: ■ 2018–19–20 The Boeing Company: Amendment 39–19420; Docket No. FAA–2018–0412; Product Identifier 2017–NM–180–AD. (a) Effective Date This AD is effective October 31, 2018. (b) Affected ADs This AD replaces AD 2010–25–06, Amendment 39–16539 (75 FR 81409, December 28, 2010) (‘‘AD 2010–25–06’’). (c) Applicability (1) This AD applies to The Boeing Company Model 737–200, –300, –400, and –500 series airplanes, certificated in any category, as identified in Boeing Alert Service Bulletin 737–53A1254, Revision 3, dated November 13, 2017. (2) Installation of Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) ST01219SE (http:// rgl.faa.gov/Regulatory_and_Guidance_ Library/rgstc.nsf/0/ebd1cec7b301293e86257 cb30045557a/$FILE/ST01219SE.pdf) does not affect the ability to accomplish the actions required by this AD. Therefore, for airplanes on which STC ST01219SE is installed, a ‘‘change in product’’ alternative method of compliance (AMOC) approval request is not necessary to comply with the requirements of 14 CFR 39.17. (d) Subject Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 53, Fuselage. (e) Unsafe Condition This AD was prompted by the detection of fatigue cracks at certain frame sections, in addition to stub beam cracking, caused by high flight cycle stresses from both pressurization and maneuver loads and additional cracking found in areas not covered by the inspections in AD 2010–25– 06. We are issuing this AD to address fatigue cracking of certain fuselage frames and stub beams and possible severed frames, which could result in reduced structural integrity of the frames. This reduced structural integrity can increase loading in the fuselage skin, which will accelerate skin crack growth and could result in rapid decompression of the fuselage. (f) Compliance Comply with this AD within the compliance times specified, unless already done.

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2010-25-06, 
which applied to certain The Boeing Company Model 737-200, -300, -400, 
and -500 series airplanes. AD 2010-25-06 required repetitive 
inspections for cracking of certain fuselage frames and stub beams, and 
corrective actions if necessary. AD 2010-25-06 also provided for an 
optional repair, which terminated the repetitive inspections. For 
airplanes on which a certain repair was done, AD 2010-25-06 also 
required repetitive inspections for cracking of certain fuselage frames 
and stub beams, and corrective actions if necessary. This AD retains 
the actions required by AD 2010-25-06 and expands the inspection area. 
This AD was prompted by additional cracking found in areas not covered 
by the inspections in AD 2010-25-06. We are issuing this AD to address 
the unsafe condition on these products.

DATES: This AD is effective October 31, 2018.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of a certain publication listed in this AD as of October 31, 
2018.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Discussion

    We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR 
part 39 to supersede AD 2010-25-06, Amendment 39-16539 (75 FR 81409, 
December 28, 2010) (``AD 2010-25-06''). AD 2010-25-06 applied to 
certain Model 737-200, -300, -400, and -500 series airplanes. The NPRM 
published in the Federal Register on May 15, 2018 (83 FR 22422). The 
NPRM was prompted by additional cracking found in areas not covered by 
the inspections in AD 2010-25-06. The NPRM proposed to retain the 
actions required by AD 2010-25-06 and expand the inspection area. We 
are issuing this AD

[[Page 48528]]

to address fatigue cracking of certain fuselage frames and stub beams 
and possible severed frames, which could result in reduced structural 
integrity of the frames. This reduced structural integrity can increase 
loading in the fuselage skin, which will accelerate skin crack growth 
and could result in rapid decompression of the fuselage.

Comments

    We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing 
this AD. The following presents the comments received on the NPRM and 
the FAA's response to each comment.

Effect of Winglets on Accomplishment of the Proposed Actions

    Aviation Partners Boeing stated that accomplishing the supplemental 
type certificate (STC) ST01219SE does not affect the actions specified 
in the NPRM.
    We agree with the commenter. We have redesignated paragraph (c) of 
the proposed AD as paragraph (c)(1) of this AD and added paragraph 
(c)(2) to this AD to state that installation of STC ST01219SE does not 
affect the ability to accomplish the actions required by this AD. 
Therefore, for airplanes on which STC ST01219SE is installed, a 
``change in product'' alternative method of compliance (AMOC) approval 
request is not necessary to comply with the requirements of 14 CFR 
39.17.

Request To Clarify Compliance Language

    Boeing asked that the compliance language in paragraphs (g), (h), 
(i), (j) and (k) of the proposed AD be changed since there are multiple 
conditions and compliance times specified in paragraph 1.E., 
``Compliance'' of the referenced service information. Boeing asked that 
the wording in these paragraphs be changed from ``at the applicable 
time'' specified in tables 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 9, respectively, to ``at 
the applicable condition and time'' specified in tables 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 
and 9, respectively. Boeing stated that these changes would provide 
clarification.
    Although we do not agree to revise this AD as requested by the 
commenter, we agree to clarify the compliance language. The phrase ``at 
the applicable time'' means the compliance time associated with a given 
condition, as specified in the applicable table in paragraph 1.E., 
``Compliance,'' of Boeing Alert Service Bulletin 737-53A1254, Revision 
3, dated November 13, 2017. We have not changed this AD in this regard.

Addition of Omitted Word

    We inadvertently omitted the word ``in'' prior to the word 
``table'' in the phrase ``. . . the applicable time specified table . . 
.'' in certain sentences in paragraphs (g), (h), (i), and (j) of the 
proposed AD. We have revised the applicable sentences in paragraphs 
(g), (h), (i), and (j) of this AD to read ``. . . the applicable time 
specified in table. . . .''

Conclusion

    We reviewed the relevant data, considered the comments received, 
and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting 
this AD with the changes described previously, and minor editorial 
changes. We have determined that these minor changes:
     Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the 
NPRM for addressing the unsafe condition; and
     Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was 
already proposed in the NPRM.
    We also determined that these changes will not increase the 
economic burden on any operator or increase the scope of this AD.

Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51

    We reviewed Boeing Alert Service Bulletin 737-53A1254, Revision 3, 
dated November 13, 2017. This service information describes procedures 
for detailed and eddy current inspections of the fuselage frame and 
over wing stub beam at body station (BS) 616, BS 639, and BS 597 or BS 
601, and buttock line (BL) 45.5 floor beam web at the BS 639 stub beam 
attachment, and related investigative and corrective actions. 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.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this AD affects 67 airplanes of U.S. registry. We 
estimate the following costs to comply with this AD:

                                      Estimated Costs for Required Actions
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                                                 Cost on U.S.

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

    We estimate the following costs to do certain necessary repairs/
replacements that would be required based on the results of the 
inspections. We have no way of determining the number of aircraft that 
might need these repairs/replacements:

                                               On-Condition Costs

                                         $85 per hour = $6,460.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
* All required parts are supplied by the operator. This cost is minimal, and we have no way to determine what an
  operator would pay for these parts.
** We have received no definitive data that would enable us to provide cost estimates for certain other repairs
  specified in this 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 48529]]

    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 and 
associated appliances to the Director of the System Oversight Division.

Regulatory Findings

    We have 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 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.

Adoption of the Amendment

    Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the 
Administrator, the FAA amends 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.


Sec.  39.13  [Amended]

0
2. The FAA amends Sec.  39.13 by removing Airworthiness Directive (AD) 
2010-25-06, Amendment 39-16539 (75 FR 81409, December 28, 2010), and 
adding the following new AD:

2018-19-20 The Boeing Company: Amendment 39-19420; Docket No. FAA-
2018-0412; Product Identifier 2017-NM-180-AD.

(a) Effective Date

    This AD is effective October 31, 2018.

(b) Affected ADs

    This AD replaces AD 2010-25-06, Amendment 39-16539 (75 FR 81409, 
December 28, 2010) (``AD 2010-25-06'').

(c) Applicability

    (1) This AD applies to The Boeing Company Model 737-200, -300, -
400, and -500 series airplanes, certificated in any category, as 
identified in Boeing Alert Service Bulletin 737-53A1254, Revision 3, 
dated November 13, 2017.
    (2) Installation of Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) 
ST01219SE (http://rgl.faa.gov/Regulatory_and_Guidance_Library/
rgstc.nsf/0/ebd1cec7b301293e86257cb30045557a/$FILE/ST01219SE.pdf) 
does not affect the ability to accomplish the actions required by 
this AD. Therefore, for airplanes on which STC ST01219SE is 
installed, a ``change in product'' alternative method of compliance 
(AMOC) approval request is not necessary to comply with the 
requirements of 14 CFR 39.17.

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 53, Fuselage.

(e) Unsafe Condition

    This AD was prompted by the detection of fatigue cracks at 
certain frame sections, in addition to stub beam cracking, caused by 
high flight cycle stresses from both pressurization and maneuver 
loads and additional cracking found in areas not covered by the 
inspections in AD 2010-25-06. We are issuing this AD to address 
fatigue cracking of certain fuselage frames and stub beams and 
possible severed frames, which could result in reduced structural 
integrity of the frames. This reduced structural integrity can 
increase loading in the fuselage skin, which will accelerate skin 
crack growth and could result in rapid decompression of the 
fuselage.

(f) Compliance

    Comply with this AD within the compliance times specified, 
unless already done.

(g) Repetitive Inspections of Body Stations 616 and 639 Frames and Stub 
Beams and Corrective Actions
