Discussion Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation authority for Canada, has issued Canadian AD CF–2018–32, dated December 10, 2018 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for all Bombardier, Inc., Model CL–600–2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes; Model CL– E:\FR\FM\14MYP1.SGM 14MYP1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 93 / Tuesday, May 14, 2019 / Proposed Rules 600–2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701 & 702) airplanes; Model CL–600–2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705) airplanes; Model CL–600–2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900) airplanes; and Model CL– 600–2E25 (Regional Jet Series 1000) airplanes. The MCAI states: It was determined that during ALTS CAP or (V) ALTS CAP mode, the flight guidance/ autopilot does not account for engine failure while capturing an altitude. If an engine failure occurs during or before a climb while in ALTS CAP or (V) ALTS CAP mode, the airspeed may drop significantly below the safe operating speed. Prompt crew intervention may be required to maintain a safe operating speed. This [Canadian] AD mandates the introduction of a Limitation and Abnormal procedure to the [airplane flight manual] AFM to address the above mentioned unsafe condition. You may examine the MCAI in the AD docket on the internet at https:// www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating Docket No. FAA–2019– 0256. Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51 Bombardier has issued the following service information, which describes procedures for revising the AFM by including a warning for the AFCS and procedures if an engine failure occurs during or before a climb while in ALTS CAP mode or if an engine failure occurs during or before a climb while in (V) ALTS CAP mode. These documents are distinct since they apply to different airplane models. • Subject 2—AFCS, of Section 02–08, ‘‘System Limitations,’’ of Chapter 2, ‘‘LIMITATIONS,’’ and Subject C, ‘‘Engine Failure in Climb During ALTS CAP,’’ of Section 05–02, ‘‘In-flight Engine Failures,’’ of Chapter 5, ‘‘ABNORMAL PROCEDURES,’’ of the Bombardier CRJ Regional Jet AFM, CSP A–012, Revision 70, dated July 13, 2018. • Subject 2—AFCS, of Section 02–08, ‘‘System Limitations,’’ of Chapter 2, ‘‘LIMITATIONS,’’ and Subject C, ‘‘Engine Failure in Climb During ALTS CAP’’ and ‘‘Engine Failure in Climb During (V) ALTS CAP,’’ of Section 05– 02, ‘‘In-flight Engine Failures,’’ of Chapter 5, ‘‘ABNORMAL PROCEDURES,’’ of the Bombardier CRJ Regional Jet AFM CSP B–012, Revision 24, dated May 11, 2018. • Subject 2—AFCS, of Section 02–08, ‘‘System Limitations,’’ of Chapter 2, ‘‘LIMITATIONS,’’ and Subject C, ‘‘Engine Failure in Climb During ALTS CAP’’ and ‘‘Engine Failure in Climb During (V) ALTS CAP,’’ of Section 05– 02, ‘‘In-flight Engine Failures,’’ of Chapter 5, ‘‘ABNORMAL PROCEDURES,’’ of the Bombardier CRJ Regional Jet AFM CSP C–012, Revision 19A, dated August 17, 2018. • Subject 2—AFCS, of Section 02–08, ‘‘System Limitations,’’ of Chapter 2, ‘‘LIMITATIONS,’’ and Subject C, ‘‘Engine Failure in Climb During ALTS CAP’’ and ‘‘Engine Failure in Climb During (V) ALTS CAP,’’ of Section 05– 02, ‘‘In-flight Engine Failures,’’ of Chapter 5, ‘‘ABNORMAL PROCEDURES,’’ of the Bombardier CRJ 21277 Regional Jet AFM CSP D–012, Revision 20, dated September 28, 2018. 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 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 the relevant information and determined the unsafe condition described previously is likely to exist or develop on other products of the same type design. Proposed Requirements of This NPRM This proposed AD would require revising the AFM by including a warning for the AFCS and procedures if an engine failure occurs during or before a climb while in ALTS CAP mode and if an engine failure occurs during or before a climb while in (V) ALTS CAP mode. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this proposed AD affects 985 airplanes of U.S. registry. We estimate the following costs to comply with this proposed AD: ESTIMATED COSTS FOR REQUIRED ACTIONS Labor cost Parts cost Cost per product Cost on U.S. operators 1 work-hour × $85 per hour = $85 .............................................................................................. $0 $85 $83,725 khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with PROPOSALS 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:21 May 13, 2019 Jkt 247001 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 and associated appliances to the Director of the System Oversight Division. PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 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); E:\FR\FM\14MYP1.SGM 14MYP1 21278 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 93 / Tuesday, May 14, 2019 / Proposed Rules List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 The Proposed Amendment Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the FAA proposes to amend 14 CFR part 39 as follows: PART 39—AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES 1.

Discussion

    Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation 
authority for Canada, has issued Canadian AD CF-2018-32, dated December 
10, 2018 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing 
Airworthiness Information, or ``the MCAI''), to correct an unsafe 
condition for all Bombardier, Inc., Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional Jet 
Series 100 & 440) airplanes; Model CL-

[[Page 21277]]

600-2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701 & 702) airplanes; Model CL-600-
2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705) airplanes; Model CL-600-2D24 (Regional 
Jet Series 900) airplanes; and Model CL-600-2E25 (Regional Jet Series 
1000) airplanes. The MCAI states:

    It was determined that during ALTS CAP or (V) ALTS CAP mode, the 
flight guidance/autopilot does not account for engine failure while 
capturing an altitude. If an engine failure occurs during or before 
a climb while in ALTS CAP or (V) ALTS CAP mode, the airspeed may 
drop significantly below the safe operating speed. Prompt crew 
intervention may be required to maintain a safe operating speed.
    This [Canadian] AD mandates the introduction of a Limitation and 
Abnormal procedure to the [airplane flight manual] AFM to address 
the above mentioned unsafe condition.

FAA's Determination

    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 the relevant information and determined the unsafe 
condition described previously is likely to exist or develop on other 
products of the same type design.

Proposed Requirements of This NPRM

    This proposed AD would require revising the AFM by including a 
warning for the AFCS and procedures if an engine failure occurs during 
or before a climb while in ALTS CAP mode and if an engine failure 
occurs during or before a climb while in (V) ALTS CAP mode.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this proposed AD affects 985 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.
    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 and associated appliances 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);

[[Page 21278]]

    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:

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 adding the following new airworthiness 
directive (AD):

Bombardier, Inc.: Docket No. FAA-2019-0256; Product Identifier 2019-
NM-027-AD.

(a) Comments Due Date

    We must receive comments by June 28, 2019.

(b) Affected ADs

    None.

(c) Applicability

    This AD applies to the Bombardier, Inc. airplanes identified in 
paragraphs (c)(1) through (c)(5) of this AD, certificated in any 
category, all manufacturer serial numbers.
    (1) Model CL-600-2B19 (Regional Jet Series 100 & 440) airplanes.
    (2) Model CL-600-2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701 & 702) 
airplanes.
    (3) Model CL-600-2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705) airplanes.
    (4) Model CL-600-2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900) airplanes.
    (5) Model CL-600-2E25 (Regional Jet Series 1000) airplanes.

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 22, Auto flight.

(e) Reason

    This AD was prompted by a report that during Automatic Flight 
Control System (AFCS) ALTS CAP or (V) ALTS CAP mode the flight 
guidance/autopilot does not account for engine failure while 
capturing an altitude. We are issuing this AD to address an engine 
failure that occurs during or before a climb while in ALTS CAP or 
(V) ALTS CAP mode, which may cause the airspeed to drop 
significantly below the safe operating speed, possibly resulting in 
reduced control of the airplane.

(f) Compliance

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

(g) Revision of the Airplane Flight Manual (AFM)

    Within 30 days after the effective date of this AD: Revise the 
AFM to include the information in Subject 2, ``Automatic Flight 
Control System (AFCS),'' of Section 02-08, ``System Limitations,'' 
of Chapter 2, ``LIMITATIONS,'' and Subject C, ``Engine Failure in 
Climb During ALTS CAP,'' or ``Engine Failure in Climb During (V) 
ALTS CAP,'' of Section 05-02, ``In-flight Engine Failures,'' of 
Chapter 5, ``ABNORMAL PROCEDURES,'' as applicable, of the applicable 
AFM identified in figure 1 to paragraph (g) of this AD.
