SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AD 2019– 07–05, Amendment 39–19616 (84 FR 16386, April 19, 2019) (‘‘AD 2019–07– 05’’), currently requires repetitive inspections for cracking of the 10VU rack fitting lugs, and repair of any cracking. That AD applies to all Airbus SAS Model A318 series airplanes; Model A319 series airplanes; Model A320–211, –212, –214, –216, –231, –232, and –233 airplanes; and Model A321–111, –112, –131, –211, –212, –213, –231, and –232 airplanes. Need for the Correction As published, table 1 to paragraph (h)(1) of AD 2019–07–05 contains an incomplete compliance time. The first row in table 1 to paragraph (h)(1) of AD 2019–07–05 inadvertently omitted certain clarifying compliance-time language (i.e., ‘‘whichever occurs first’’) to distinguish the initial compliance thresholds. The intent of AD 2019–07– 05 was to match the content and intent of European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD 2018–0131, dated June 19, 2018, which provides the complete compliance threshold. In addition, the substance of paragraph (h)(1) of AD 2019–07–05 was retained from superseded AD 2016–19–14, Amendment 39–18663 (81 FR 71602, October 18, 2016). Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51 AD 2019–07–05 requires Airbus Service Bulletins A320–92–1087, Revision 03, dated July 31, 2017; and A320–92–1119, dated July 28, 2017; which the Director of the Federal Register approved for incorporation by reference as of May 24, 2019 (84 FR E:\FR\FM\10MYR1.SGM 10MYR1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 91 / Friday, May 10, 2019 / Rules and Regulations Correction of Publication § 39.13 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 May 24, 2019. Since this action only corrects an incomplete compliance time, 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. ■ List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 (c) Applicability This AD applies to the Airbus SAS airplanes identified in paragraphs (c)(1) through (c)(4) of this AD, certificated in any category, all manufacturer serial numbers. (1) Model A318–111, -112, -121, and -122 airplanes. (2) Model A319–111, –112, –113, –114, –115, –131, –132, and –133 airplanes. (3) Model A320–211, –212, –214, –216, –231, –232, and –233 airplanes. (4) Model A321–111, –112, –131, –211, –212, –213, –231, and –232 airplanes. Accordingly, pursuant to the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the Federal Aviation Administration amends part 39 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 39) as follows: (2) For Group 2 airplanes: At the later of the times specified in paragraphs (h)(2)(i) and (h)(2)(ii) of this AD, and thereafter at intervals not to exceed 20,000 flight cycles or 40,000 flight hours, whichever occurs first, do a detailed inspection for cracking of the 10VU rack fitting lugs, in accordance with the Accomplishment Instructions of Airbus Service Bulletin A320–92–1119, dated July 28, 2017. (i) Prior to exceeding 30,000 total flight cycles or 60,000 total flight hours, whichever occurs first. (ii) Within 30 days after the effective date of this AD.

[Corrected] 2. The FAA amends § 39.13 by removing Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2016–19–14, Amendment 39–18663 (81 FR 71602, October 18, 2016), and adding the following new AD: 2019–07–05 Airbus SAS: Amendment 39– 19616; Docket No. FAA–2018–0903; Product Identifier 2018–NM–113–AD. (a) Effective Date The effective date of this AD is May 24, 2019. (b) Affected ADs This AD replaces AD 2016–19–14, Amendment 39–18663 (81 FR 71602, October 18, 2016) (‘‘AD 2016–19–14’’). Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 92, Electric and Electronic Common Installation. (e) Reason This AD was prompted by a report of cracks found during maintenance inspections on certain 10VU rack fitting lugs. We are issuing this AD to address reading difficulties of flight-critical information displayed to the flightcrew during a critical phase of flight, such as an approach or takeoff, which could result in loss of airplane control at an altitude insufficient for recovery. (f) Compliance Comply with this AD within the compliance times specified, unless already done. (g) Definitions For the purpose of this AD, Group 1 airplanes are in a pre-Airbus Modification 35869 configuration, and Group 2 airplanes are in a post-Airbus Modification 35869 configuration. (h) Repetitive Inspections (1) For Group 1 airplanes: At the later of the times specified in table 1 to paragraph (h)(1) of this AD, and thereafter at intervals not to exceed 20,000 flight cycles or 40,000 flight hours, whichever occurs first, do a detailed inspection for cracking of the 10VU rack fitting lugs, in accordance with the Accomplishment Instructions of Airbus Service Bulletin A320–92–1087, Revision 03, dated July 31, 2017. (i) Repair (j) Reporting If any crack is found during any inspection required by paragraph (h)(1) or (h)(2) of this AD: Before further flight, do a repair in accordance with the Accomplishment Instructions of Airbus Service Bulletin A320– 92–1087, Revision 03, dated July 31, 2017 (for Group 1 airplanes); or Service Bulletin A320–92–1119, dated July 28, 2017 (for Group 2 airplanes); as applicable. Repair of a 10VU rack fitting lug does not terminate the repetitive inspections required by paragraphs (h)(1) and (h)(2) of this AD. At the applicable time specified in paragraph (j)(1) or (j)(2) of this AD: Submit a report of findings (positive and negative) of each inspection required by paragraph (h) of this AD to Airbus Service Bulletin Reporting Online Application on Airbus World (https:// w3.airbus.com/), or submit the results to Airbus in accordance with the instructions of Airbus Service Bulletin A320–92–1087, Revision 03, dated July 31, 2017 (for Group 1 airplanes); or Service Bulletin A320–92– 1119, dated July 28, 2017 (for Group 2 airplanes); as applicable.

Airworthiness Directives; Airbus SAS Airplanes

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule; correction.

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

SUMMARY: The FAA is correcting an airworthiness directive (AD) that 
published in the Federal Register. That AD applies to all Airbus SAS 
Model A318 series airplanes; Model A319 series airplanes; Model A320-
211, -212, -214, -216, -231, -232, and -233 airplanes; and Model A321-
111, -112, -131, -211, -212, -213, -231, and -232 airplanes. As 
published, that AD contains an incomplete compliance time for the 
initial inspection for certain airplanes. This document corrects that 
error. In all other respects, the original document remains the same.

DATES: This correction is effective May 24, 2019.
    The effective date of AD 2019-07-05 remains May 24, 2019.
    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by 
reference of certain publications listed in this AD as of May 24, 2019 
(84 FR 16386, April 19, 2019).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AD 2019-07-05, Amendment 39-19616 (84 FR 
16386, April 19, 2019) (``AD 2019-07-05''), currently requires 
repetitive inspections for cracking of the 10VU rack fitting lugs, and 
repair of any cracking. That AD applies to all Airbus SAS Model A318 
series airplanes; Model A319 series airplanes; Model A320-211, -212, -
214, -216, -231, -232, and -233 airplanes; and Model A321-111, -112, -
131, -211, -212, -213, -231, and -232 airplanes.

Need for the Correction

    As published, table 1 to paragraph (h)(1) of AD 2019-07-05 contains 
an incomplete compliance time. The first row in table 1 to paragraph 
(h)(1) of AD 2019-07-05 inadvertently omitted certain clarifying 
compliance-time language (i.e., ``whichever occurs first'') to 
distinguish the initial compliance thresholds. The intent of AD 2019-
07-05 was to match the content and intent of European Aviation Safety 
Agency (EASA) AD 2018-0131, dated June 19, 2018, which provides the 
complete compliance threshold. In addition, the substance of paragraph 
(h)(1) of AD 2019-07-05 was retained from superseded AD 2016-19-14, 
Amendment 39-18663 (81 FR 71602, October 18, 2016).

Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51

    AD 2019-07-05 requires Airbus Service Bulletins A320-92-1087, 
Revision 03, dated July 31, 2017; and A320-92-1119, dated July 28, 
2017; which the Director of the Federal Register approved for 
incorporation by reference as of May 24, 2019 (84 FR

16386, April 19, 2019). 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 May 24, 2019.
    Since this action only corrects an incomplete compliance time, 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.

2019-07-05 Airbus SAS: Amendment 39-19616; Docket No. FAA-2018-0903; 
Product Identifier 2018-NM-113-AD.

(a) Effective Date

    The effective date of this AD is May 24, 2019.

(b) Affected ADs

    This AD replaces AD 2016-19-14, Amendment 39-18663 (81 FR 71602, 
October 18, 2016) (``AD 2016-19-14'').

(c) Applicability

    This AD applies to the Airbus SAS airplanes identified in 
paragraphs (c)(1) through (c)(4) of this AD, certificated in any 
category, all manufacturer serial numbers.
    (1) Model A318-111, -112, -121, and -122 airplanes.
    (2) Model A319-111, -112, -113, -114, -115, -131, -132, and -133

airplanes.

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 92, Electric and 
Electronic Common Installation.

(e) Reason

    This AD was prompted by a report of cracks found during 
maintenance inspections on certain 10VU rack fitting lugs. We are 
issuing this AD to address reading difficulties of flight-critical 
information displayed to the flightcrew during a critical phase of 
flight, such as an approach or takeoff, which could result in loss 
of airplane control at an altitude insufficient for recovery.

(f) Compliance

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

(g) Definitions

    For the purpose of this AD, Group 1 airplanes are in a pre-
Airbus Modification 35869 configuration, and Group 2 airplanes are 
in a post-Airbus Modification 35869 configuration.

(h) Repetitive Inspections

    (1) For Group 1 airplanes: At the later of the times specified 
in table 1 to paragraph (h)(1) of this AD, and thereafter at 
intervals not to exceed 20,000 flight cycles or 40,000 flight hours, 
whichever occurs first, do a detailed inspection for cracking of the 
10VU rack fitting lugs, in accordance with the Accomplishment 
Instructions of Airbus Service Bulletin A320-92-1087, Revision 03, 
dated July 31, 2017.

    (2) For Group 2 airplanes: At the later of the times specified 
in paragraphs (h)(2)(i) and (h)(2)(ii) of this AD, and thereafter at 
intervals not to exceed 20,000 flight cycles or 40,000 flight hours, 
whichever occurs first, do a detailed inspection for cracking of the 
10VU rack fitting lugs, in accordance with the Accomplishment 
Instructions of Airbus Service Bulletin A320-92-1119, dated July 28, 
2017.
    (i) Prior to exceeding 30,000 total flight cycles or 60,000 
total flight hours, whichever occurs first.
    (ii) Within 30 days after the effective date of this AD.

(i) Repair

    If any crack is found during any inspection required by 
paragraph (h)(1) or (h)(2) of this AD: Before further flight, do a 
repair in accordance with the Accomplishment Instructions of Airbus 
Service Bulletin A320-92-1087, Revision 03, dated July 31, 2017 (for 
Group 1 airplanes); or Service Bulletin A320-92-1119, dated July 28, 
2017 (for Group 2 airplanes); as applicable. Repair of a 10VU rack 
fitting lug does not terminate the repetitive inspections required 
by paragraphs (h)(1) and (h)(2) of this AD.

(j) Reporting

    At the applicable time specified in paragraph (j)(1) or (j)(2) 
of this AD: Submit a report of findings (positive and negative) of 
each inspection required by paragraph (h) of this AD to Airbus 
Service Bulletin Reporting Online Application on Airbus World 
(https://w3.airbus.com/), or submit the results to Airbus in 
accordance with the instructions of Airbus Service Bulletin A320-92-
1087, Revision 03, dated July 31, 2017 (for Group 1 airplanes); or 
Service Bulletin A320-92-1119, dated July 28, 2017 (for Group 2 
airplanes); as applicable. Where Figure A-FAAAA, Sheet 02, of 
Appendix 01, ``Inspection Report,'' of Airbus Service

[[Page 20544]]

Bulletin A320-92-1087, Revision 03, dated July 31, 2017; and Figure 
A-FAAAA, Sheet 02, of Appendix 01, ``Inspection Report,'' of Service 
Bulletin A320-92-1119, dated July 28, 2017; specifies sending 
removed lugs to Airbus for investigation, this AD does not include 
that requirement.
    (1) If the inspection was done on or after the effective date of 
this AD: Submit the report within 90 days after the inspection.
    (2) If the inspection was done before the effective date of this 
AD: Submit the report within 90 days after the effective date of 
this AD.

(k) Credit for Previous Actions

    This paragraph provides credit for actions required by 
paragraphs (h)(1) and (i) of this AD if those actions were performed 
before the effective date of this AD using Airbus Service Bulletin 
A320-92-1087, Revision 02, dated November 25, 2014.

(l) Paperwork Reduction Act Burden Statement

    A federal agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not 
required to respond to, nor shall a person be subject to a penalty 
for failure to comply with a collection of information subject to 
the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act unless that 
collection of information displays a current valid OMB Control 
Number. The OMB Control Number for this information collection is 
2120-0056. Public reporting for this collection of information is 
estimated to be approximately 1 hour per response, including the 
time for reviewing instructions, completing and reviewing the 
collection of information. All responses to this collection of 
information are mandatory. Comments concerning the accuracy of this 
burden and suggestions for reducing the burden should be directed to 
the FAA at: 800 Independence Ave. SW, Washington, DC 20591, Attn: 
Information Collection Clearance Officer, AES-200.

(m) Other FAA AD Provisions

    (1) Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs): The Manager, 
International Section, Transport Standards Branch, FAA, has the 
authority to approve AMOCs for this AD, if requested using the 
procedures found in 14 CFR 39.19. In accordance with 14 CFR 39.19, 
send your request to your principal inspector or local Flight 
Standards District Office, as appropriate. If sending information 
directly to the International Section, send it to the attention of 
the person identified in paragraph (n)(2) of this AD. Information 
may be emailed to: [email protected]. Before using any 
approved AMOC, notify your appropriate principal inspector, or 
lacking a principal inspector, the manager of the local flight 
standards district office/certificate holding district office.
    (2) Contacting the Manufacturer: As of the effective date of 
this AD, for any requirement in this AD to obtain corrective actions 
from a manufacturer, the action must be accomplished using a method 
approved by the Manager, International Section, Transport Standards 
Branch, FAA; or the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA); or 
Airbus SAS's EASA Design Organization Approval (DOA). If approved by 
the DOA, the approval must include the DOA-authorized signature.
    (3) Required for Compliance (RC): If any service information 
contains procedures or tests that are identified as RC, those 
procedures and tests must be done to comply with this AD; any 
procedures or tests that are not identified as RC are recommended. 
Those procedures and tests that are not identified as RC may be 
deviated from using accepted methods in accordance with the 
operator's maintenance or inspection program without obtaining 
approval of an AMOC, provided the procedures and tests identified as 
RC can be done and the airplane can be put back in an airworthy 
condition. Any substitutions or changes to procedures or tests 
identified as RC require approval of an AMOC.
