SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion The FAA issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 by adding an AD that would apply to all Fokker Services B.V. Model F28 Mark 0070 and 0100 airplanes. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on February 8, 2019 (84 FR 2796). The NPRM was prompted by a determination that new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations are necessary. The NPRM proposed to require revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations. The agency is issuing this AD to address reduced structural integrity of the airplane. The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the European Union, has issued EASA AD 2018–0159, dated July 25, 2018 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for all Fokker Services B.V. Model F28 Mark 0070 and 0100 airplanes. The MCAI states: E:\FR\FM\27JNR1.SGM 27JNR1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 124 / Thursday, June 27, 2019 / Rules and Regulations Fokker Services Engineering Report SE– 623 contains the Airworthiness Limitation Items (ALIs) and Safe Life Items (SLIs) for Fokker F28 Mark 0070 and Mark 0100 aeroplanes. This report is Part 2 of the Airworthiness Limitations Section of the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness, referred to in Section 06, Appendix 1, of the Fokker 70/100 Maintenance Review Board document. The complete Airworthiness Limitations Section consists of: Part 1—Report SE–473, Certification Maintenance Requirements (CMRs)—ref. EASA AD 2015–0027 [corresponds to FAA AD 2016–11–22, Amendment 39–18549 (81 FR 36438, June 7, 2016)], Part 2—Report SE–623, ALIs and SLIs—ref. EASA AD 2017–0095 [corresponds to FAA AD 2017–06–06, Amendment 39–18830 (83 FR 8328, February 27, 2018)], and Part 3—Report SE–672, Fuel ALIs and CDCCLs—ref. EASA AD 2015–0032 [corresponds to FAA AD 2016–11–15, Amendment 39–18542 (81 FR 36447, June 7, 2016)]. The instructions contained in those reports have been identified as mandatory actions for continued airworthiness. Failure to accomplish these actions could result in an unsafe condition. EASA previously issued [EASA] AD 2017– 0095, requiring the actions described in Report SE–623 at issue 17. Since that [EASA] AD was issued, Fokker Services published issue 18 of Report SE–623, containing new and/or more restrictive maintenance tasks. For the reason described above, this [EASA] AD retains the requirements of [EASA] AD 2017–0095, which is superseded, and requires implementation of the maintenance actions as specified in the ALS. 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– 1071. jspears on DSK30JT082PROD with RULES Comments The FAA gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this final rule. The FAA received no comments on the NPRM or on the determination of the cost to the public. Conclusion The FAA reviewed the relevant data and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting this final rule as proposed, except for minor editorial changes. The agency has 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. Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51 Fokker Services B.V. has issued Fokker Engineering Report SE–623, VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:21 Jun 26, 2019 Jkt 247001 Fokker 70/100 Airworthiness Limitations Section, Part 2—(Structure ALI’s and Safe Life Items), Issue 18, dated June 14, 2018. This service information describes airworthiness limitations and safe life limits. 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 The FAA estimates that this AD affects 4 airplanes of U.S. registry. The FAA estimates the following costs to comply with this AD: The FAA has determined that revising the existing maintenance or inspection program takes an average of 90 workhours per operator, although the FAA recognizes that this number may vary from operator to operator. In the past, the FAA has estimated that this action takes 1 work-hour per airplane. Since operators incorporate maintenance or inspection program changes for their affected fleet(s), the FAA has determined that a per-operator estimate is more accurate than a perairplane estimate. Therefore, the FAA estimates the total cost per operator to be $7,650 (90 work-hours × $85 per work-hour). 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. The FAA is 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 PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 30589 applicable to transport category airplanes and associated appliances to the Director of the System Oversight Division. Regulatory Findings 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) Will not affect intrastate aviation in Alaska, and (3) 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Discussion

    The FAA issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 
CFR part 39 by adding an AD that would apply to all Fokker Services 
B.V. Model F28 Mark 0070 and 0100 airplanes. The NPRM published in the 
Federal Register on February 8, 2019 (84 FR 2796). The NPRM was 
prompted by a determination that new or more restrictive airworthiness 
limitations are necessary. The NPRM proposed to require revising the 
existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to 
incorporate new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations. The 
agency is issuing this AD to address reduced structural integrity of 
the airplane.
    The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical 
Agent for the Member States of the European Union, has issued EASA AD 
2018-0159, dated July 25, 2018 (referred to after this as the Mandatory 
Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ``the MCAI''), to correct an 
unsafe condition for all Fokker Services B.V. Model F28 Mark 0070 and 
0100 airplanes. The MCAI states:


[[Page 30589]]


    Fokker Services Engineering Report SE-623 contains the 
Airworthiness Limitation Items (ALIs) and Safe Life Items (SLIs) for 
Fokker F28 Mark 0070 and Mark 0100 aeroplanes. This report is Part 2 
of the Airworthiness Limitations Section of the Instructions for 
Continued Airworthiness, referred to in Section 06, Appendix 1, of 
the Fokker 70/100 Maintenance Review Board document.
    The complete Airworthiness Limitations Section consists of:
    Part 1--Report SE-473, Certification Maintenance Requirements 
(CMRs)--ref. EASA AD 2015-0027 [corresponds to FAA AD 2016-11-22, 
Amendment 39-18549 (81 FR 36438, June 7, 2016)],
    Part 2--Report SE-623, ALIs and SLIs--ref. EASA AD 2017-0095 
[corresponds to FAA AD 2017-06-06, Amendment 39-18830 (83 FR 8328, 
February 27, 2018)], and
    Part 3--Report SE-672, Fuel ALIs and CDCCLs--ref. EASA AD 2015-
0032 [corresponds to FAA AD 2016-11-15, Amendment 39-18542 (81 FR 
36447, June 7, 2016)].
    The instructions contained in those reports have been identified 
as mandatory actions for continued airworthiness. Failure to 
accomplish these actions could result in an unsafe condition.
    EASA previously issued [EASA] AD 2017-0095, requiring the 
actions described in Report SE-623 at issue 17. Since that [EASA] AD 
was issued, Fokker Services published issue 18 of Report SE-623, 
containing new and/or more restrictive maintenance tasks.
    For the reason described above, this [EASA] AD retains the 
requirements of [EASA] AD 2017-0095, which is superseded, and 
requires implementation of the maintenance actions as specified in 
the ALS.

Comments

    The FAA gave the public the opportunity to participate in 
developing this final rule. The FAA received no comments on the NPRM or 
on the determination of the cost to the public.

Conclusion

    The FAA reviewed the relevant data and determined that air safety 
and the public interest require adopting this final rule as proposed, 
except for minor editorial changes. The agency has 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.

Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51

    Fokker Services B.V. has issued Fokker Engineering Report SE-623, 
Fokker 70/100 Airworthiness Limitations Section, Part 2--(Structure 
ALI's and Safe Life Items), Issue 18, dated June 14, 2018. This service 
information describes airworthiness limitations and safe life limits. 
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

    The FAA estimates that this AD affects 4 airplanes of U.S. 
registry. The FAA estimates the following costs to comply with this AD:
    The FAA has determined that revising the existing maintenance or 
inspection program takes an average of 90 workhours per operator, 
although the FAA recognizes that this number may vary from operator to 
operator. In the past, the FAA has estimated that this action takes 1 
work-hour per airplane. Since operators incorporate maintenance or 
inspection program changes for their affected fleet(s), the FAA has 
determined that a per-operator estimate is more accurate than a per-
airplane estimate. Therefore, the FAA estimates the total cost per 
operator to be $7,650 (90 work-hours x $85 per work-hour).

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.
    The FAA is 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

    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) Will not affect intrastate aviation in Alaska, and
    (3) 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.
