PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 32101 Discussion The FAA issued AD 2017–16–08, Amendment 39–18985 (82 FR 42021, September 6, 2017) (‘‘AD 2017–16–08’’), for certain Embraer S.A. Model ERJ 190– 100 STD, –100 LR, –100 ECJ and –100 IGW airplanes and Model ERJ 190–200 STD, –200 LR, and –200 IGW airplanes. AD 2017–16–08 requires revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate more restrictive airworthiness limitations. AD 2017–16–08 resulted from a determination that more restrictive airworthiness limitations are necessary. The FAA issued AD 2017– 16–08 to address fatigue cracking of structural components and to address failure of certain system components; these conditions could result in reduced structural integrity and system reliability of the airplane. Actions Since AD 2017–16–08 Was Issued The Ageˆncia Nacional de Aviac¸a˜o Civil (ANAC), which is the aviation authority for Brazil, has issued Brazilian AD 2019–05–02, effective May 2, 2019 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for certain Embraer S.A. Model ERJ 190–100 STD, –100 LR, –100 ECJ, and –100 IGW airplanes; and Model ERJ 190–200 STD, –200 LR, and –200 IGW airplanes. The MCAI states: This [Brazilian] AD was prompted by a new revision to the airworthiness limitations of the Maintenance Review Board Report. This [Brazilian] AD is being issued to ensure that fatigue cracking of principal structural elements is detected and corrected. Such fatigue cracking could adversely affect the structural integrity of these airplanes. The required action is revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate the airworthiness limitations in Appendix A—Airworthiness Limitations to the EMBRAER 190/195 Maintenance Review Board Report, MRB–1928, Revision 12, dated September 27, 2018; and Appendix A— Airworthiness Limitation to the EMBRAER Lineage 1000/1000E Maintenance Planning Guide, MPG– 2928, Revision 8, dated October 10, 2018; as applicable. The service information is divided into four parts: Part 1—Certification Maintenance Requirements (CMR), Part 2— Airworthiness Limitation Inspections (ALI)—Structures, Part 3—Fuel System Limitation Items (FSL), and Part 4—Life Limited Items (LLI). You may examine the MCAI in the AD docket on the internet at http:// E:\FR\FM\05JYP1.SGM 05JYP1 32102 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 129 / Friday, July 5, 2019 / Proposed Rules jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with PROPOSALS www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating Docket No. FAA–2019– 0519. Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51 Embraer has issued Part 1— Certification Maintenance Requirements (CMR); Part 2—Airworthiness Limitation Inspections (ALI)— Structures; Part 3—Fuel System Limitation Items (FSL); and Part 4—Life Limited Items (LLI); of Appendix A— Airworthiness Limitations; to the EMBRAER 190/195 Maintenance Review Board Report, MRB–1928, Revision 12, dated September 27, 2018. Embraer has also issued Part 1— Certification Maintenance Requirements (CMR); Part 2—Airworthiness Limitation Inspections (ALI)— Structures; Part 3—Fuel System Limitation Items (FSL); and Part 4—Life Limited Items (LLI); of Appendix A— Airworthiness Limitations; to the EMBRAER Lineage 1000/1000E Maintenance Planning Guide, MPG– 2928, Revision 8, dated October 10, 2018. This service information describes airworthiness limitations for fuel tank systems, safe life limits, and certification maintenance requirements. These documents are distinct since they apply to different airplane models. This proposed AD would also require Appendix A—Airworthiness Limitations (AL), of the EMBRAER ERJ 190/195 Maintenance Review Board Report, MRB–1928, Revision 9, dated August 14, 2015; Appendix A— Airworthiness Limitations (AL), of the EMBRAER Lineage 1000/1000E Maintenance Planning Guide, MPG– 2928, Revision 4, dated July 14, 2014; EMBRAER MPG—Temporary Revision 4–2, dated February 13, 2015; EMBRAER MPG—Temporary Revision 4–3, dated October 30, 2015; EMBRAER MRB—Temporary Revision 9–1, dated October 27, 2015; and EMBRAER MRB—Temporary Revision 9–3, dated October 27, 2015; which the Director of the Federal Register approved for incorporation by reference as of October 11, 2017 (82 FR 42021, September 6, 2017). 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 a bilateral agreement with the State of VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:35 Jul 03, 2019 Jkt 247001 Design Authority, the FAA has been notified of the unsafe condition described in the MCAI and service information referenced above. The FAA is proposing this AD because the agency 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 retain all of the requirements of AD 2017–16–08. This proposed AD would require revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations. This proposed AD would also add airplanes having serial numbers 19000697 through 19000758 inclusive to the applicability. This proposed AD would require revisions to certain operator maintenance documents to include new actions (e.g., inspections) and Critical Design Configuration Control Limitations (CDCCLs). Compliance with these actions and CDCCLs is required by 14 CFR 91.403(c). For airplanes that have been previously modified, altered, or repaired in the areas addressed by this proposed AD, the operator may not be able to accomplish the actions described in the revisions. In this situation, to comply with 14 CFR 91.403(c), the operator must request approval for an alternative method of compliance according to paragraph (k)(1) of this proposed AD. Costs of Compliance The FAA estimates that this proposed AD affects 107 airplanes of U.S. registry. The FAA estimates the following costs to comply with this proposed AD: The actions that are required by AD 2017–16–08 and retained in this NPRM take about 1 work-hour per product, at an average labor rate of $85 per work hour. Required parts cost about $0 per product. Based on these figures, the estimated cost of the actions that were required by AD 2017–16–08 is $85 per product. The FAA has determined that revising the existing maintenance or inspection program takes an average of 90 workhours per operator, although the agency 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 PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 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 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 The FAA 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) 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.

Airworthiness Directives; Embraer S.A. Airplanes

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

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

SUMMARY: The FAA proposes to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 
2017-16-08, which applies to certain Embraer S.A. Model ERJ 190-100 
STD, -100 LR, -100 IGW, and -100 ECJ airplanes; and Model ERJ 190-200 
STD, -200 LR, and -200 IGW airplanes. AD 2017-16-08 requires revising 
the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to 
incorporate more restrictive airworthiness limitations. Since the FAA 
issued AD 2017-16-08, the FAA determined that new or more restrictive 
airworthiness limitations are necessary. This proposed AD would require 
revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, 
to incorporate new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations. This 
proposed AD would also add airplanes to the applicability. The FAA is 
proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

DATES: The FAA must receive comments on this proposed AD by August 19, 
2019.

Discussion

    The FAA issued AD 2017-16-08, Amendment 39-18985 (82 FR 42021, 
September 6, 2017) (``AD 2017-16-08''), for certain Embraer S.A. Model 
ERJ 190-100 STD, -100 LR, -100 ECJ and -100 IGW airplanes and Model ERJ 
190-200 STD, -200 LR, and -200 IGW airplanes. AD 2017-16-08 requires 
revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, 
to incorporate more restrictive airworthiness limitations. AD 2017-16-
08 resulted from a determination that more restrictive airworthiness 
limitations are necessary. The FAA issued AD 2017-16-08 to address 
fatigue cracking of structural components and to address failure of 
certain system components; these conditions could result in reduced 
structural integrity and system reliability of the airplane.

Actions Since AD 2017-16-08 Was Issued

    The Ag[ecirc]ncia Nacional de Avia[ccedil][atilde]o Civil (ANAC), 
which is the aviation authority for Brazil, has issued Brazilian AD 
2019-05-02, effective May 2, 2019 (referred to after this as the 
Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ``the MCAI''), to 
correct an unsafe condition for certain Embraer S.A. Model ERJ 190-100 
STD, -100 LR, -100 ECJ, and -100 IGW airplanes; and Model ERJ 190-200 
STD, -200 LR, and -200 IGW airplanes. The MCAI states:

    This [Brazilian] AD was prompted by a new revision to the 
airworthiness limitations of the Maintenance Review Board Report. 
This [Brazilian] AD is being issued to ensure that fatigue cracking 
of principal structural elements is detected and corrected. Such 
fatigue cracking could adversely affect the structural integrity of 
these airplanes.

    The required action is revising the existing maintenance or 
inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate the airworthiness 
limitations in Appendix A--Airworthiness Limitations to the EMBRAER 
190/195 Maintenance Review Board Report, MRB-1928, Revision 12, dated 
September 27, 2018; and Appendix A--Airworthiness Limitation to the 
EMBRAER Lineage 1000/1000E Maintenance Planning Guide, MPG-2928, 
Revision 8, dated October 10, 2018; as applicable. The service 
information is divided into four parts: Part 1--Certification 
Maintenance Requirements (CMR), Part 2--Airworthiness Limitation 
Inspections (ALI)--Structures, Part 3--Fuel System Limitation Items 
(FSL), and Part 4--Life Limited Items (LLI).

Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51

    Embraer has issued Part 1--Certification Maintenance Requirements 
(CMR); Part 2--Airworthiness Limitation Inspections (ALI)--Structures; 
Part 3--Fuel System Limitation Items (FSL); and Part 4--Life Limited 
Items (LLI); of Appendix A--Airworthiness Limitations; to the EMBRAER 
190/195 Maintenance Review Board Report, MRB-1928, Revision 12, dated 
September 27, 2018.
    Embraer has also issued Part 1--Certification Maintenance 
Requirements (CMR); Part 2--Airworthiness Limitation Inspections 
(ALI)--Structures; Part 3--Fuel System Limitation Items (FSL); and Part 
4--Life Limited Items (LLI); of Appendix A--Airworthiness Limitations; 
to the EMBRAER Lineage 1000/1000E Maintenance Planning Guide, MPG-2928, 
Revision 8, dated October 10, 2018.
    This service information describes airworthiness limitations for 
fuel tank systems, safe life limits, and certification maintenance 
requirements. These documents are distinct since they apply to 
different airplane models.
    This proposed AD would also require Appendix A--Airworthiness 
Limitations (AL), of the EMBRAER ERJ 190/195 Maintenance Review Board 
Report, MRB-1928, Revision 9, dated August 14, 2015; Appendix A--
Airworthiness Limitations (AL), of the EMBRAER Lineage 1000/1000E 
Maintenance Planning Guide, MPG-2928, Revision 4, dated July 14, 2014; 
EMBRAER MPG--Temporary Revision 4-2, dated February 13, 2015; EMBRAER 
MPG--Temporary Revision 4-3, dated October 30, 2015; EMBRAER MRB--
Temporary Revision 9-1, dated October 27, 2015; and EMBRAER MRB--
Temporary Revision 9-3, dated October 27, 2015; which the Director of 
the Federal Register approved for incorporation by reference as of 
October 11, 2017 (82 FR 42021, September 6, 2017).
    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 a bilateral agreement with the State of Design Authority, the FAA 
has been notified of the unsafe condition described in the MCAI and 
service information referenced above. The FAA is proposing this AD 
because the agency 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 retain all of the requirements of AD 2017-
16-08. This proposed AD would require revising the existing maintenance 
or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new or more 
restrictive airworthiness limitations. This proposed AD would also add 
airplanes having serial numbers 19000697 through 19000758 inclusive to 
the applicability.
    This proposed AD would require revisions to certain operator 
maintenance documents to include new actions (e.g., inspections) and 
Critical Design Configuration Control Limitations (CDCCLs). Compliance 
with these actions and CDCCLs is required by 14 CFR 91.403(c). For 
airplanes that have been previously modified, altered, or repaired in 
the areas addressed by this proposed AD, the operator may not be able 
to accomplish the actions described in the revisions. In this 
situation, to comply with 14 CFR 91.403(c), the operator must request 
approval for an alternative method of compliance according to paragraph 
(k)(1) of this proposed AD.

Costs of Compliance

    The FAA estimates that this proposed AD affects 107 airplanes of 
U.S. registry.
    The FAA estimates the following costs to comply with this proposed 
AD:
    The actions that are required by AD 2017-16-08 and retained in this 
NPRM take about 1 work-hour per product, at an average labor rate of 
$85 per work hour. Required parts cost about $0 per product. Based on 
these figures, the estimated cost of the actions that were required by 
AD 2017-16-08 is $85 per product.
    The FAA has determined that revising the existing maintenance or 
inspection program takes an average of 90 work-hours per operator, 
although the agency 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 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

    The FAA 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) 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.
