AGENCY: We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2018–18– 01 for all CFM International S.A. (CFM) Model CFM56–7B turbofan engines. AD 2018–18–01 required initial and repetitive inspections of certain fan blades and, if they fail the inspection, their replacement with parts eligible for installation. This AD requires the same initial and repetitive inspections but revises the compliance time for the initial inspections and revises the installation prohibition based on the updated compliance time. This AD was prompted by further analysis by the manufacturer that indicated a need to reduce the initial fan blade inspection interval based on an ongoing root cause investigation of an April 2018 engine failure. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products. DATES: This AD is effective January 10, 2019.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion We issued AD 2018–18–01, Amendment 39–19380 (83 FR 49272, October 1, 2018), (‘‘AD 2018–18–01’’), for all CFM model CFM56–7B turbofan engines. AD 2018–18–01 required initial and repetitive ultrasonic inspections (USI) or eddy current inspection (ECI) of certain fan blades and, if they fail the inspection, their replacement with parts eligible for installation. AD 2018–18–01 resulted from analysis by the manufacturer that indicated a need to PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 reduce the repetitive fan blade inspection interval based on ongoing root cause investigation of an April 2018 engine failure. The April 2018 engine failure was the result of a fractured fan blade leading to the engine inlet cowl disintegrating and debris penetrating the fuselage, causing a loss of pressurization and prompting an emergency descent. One passenger fatality occurred as a result. We issued AD 2018–18–01 to reduce the repetitive inspection interval from 3,000 cycles to 1,600 cycles. Actions Since AD 2018–18–01 Was Issued Since we issued AD 2018–18–01, CFM gained a better understanding of the fan blade failures based on the inspections and further analysis of the detected cracks and the April 2018 event. As a result, CFM has published CFM International Service Bulletin (SB) CFM56–7B S/B 72–1033, Revision 3, dated November 6, 2018, to reduce the initial inspection requirement from 20,000 cycles since new (CSN) to 17,000 CSN. We are issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products. Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51 We reviewed CFM International SB CFM56–7B S/B 72–1033, Revision 3, dated November 6, 2018, and Subtask 72–21–01–220–091, of Task 72–21–01– 200–001, from the CFM56–7B Engine Shop Manual (ESM), Revision 57, dated January 15, 2018. CFM International SB CFM56–7B S/B 72–1033, Revision 3, describes procedures for performing a USI of the affected fan blades. Subtask 72–21–01–220–091, of Task 72–21–01– 200–001, from the CFM56–7B ESM, describes procedures for performing an ECI of the affected fan blades. 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.

Correction of Publication

    This document corrects an error and correctly adds the AD as an 
amendment to 14 CFR 39.13. Although no other part of the preamble or 
regulatory information has been corrected, we are publishing the entire 
rule in the Federal Register.
    The effective date of this AD remains December 28, 2018.
    Since this action only corrects the email address for requesting 
service information, it has no adverse economic impact and imposes no 
additional burden on any person. Therefore, we have determined that 
notice and public procedures are unnecessary.

    Within 42 months after the effective date of this AD, do an 
inspection to determine if any fusible plug has part number (P/N) 
B13984-3, stamped with Lot PA-21 or PA-22. A review of the airplane

installed.
    Note 1 to paragraph (g) of this AD: Guidance for performing the 
inspection specified in paragraph (g) of this AD can be found in 
applicable service information specified in paragraphs (c)(1) 
through (c)(16) of this AD and the applicable component maintenance 
manuals (CMMs) that have incorporated the appropriate Air Cruisers 
service information.

(h) Replacement of Affected Fusible Plug

    If, during the inspection or records review required by 
paragraph (g) of this AD, it is determined that any fusible plug has 
part number (P/N) B13984-3, stamped with Lot PA-21 or PA-22: Within 
42 months after the effective date of this AD, replace that fusible 
plug with a serviceable fusible plug P/N B13984-3 that is not 
stamped with Lot PA-21 or PA-22.
    Note 2 to paragraph (h) of this AD: Guidance can be found in the 
applicable CMM for the replacement. In addition, Air Cruisers 
Service Information Letter (SIL) 25-246, Rev. No. 1, dated February 
21, 2014, provides information regarding affected fusible plugs and 
guidance on the replacement.
