AGENCY: SUMMARY: The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 757 airplanes and Model 767–200, –300, and –300F series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of excessively high flight deck or cabin temperatures. This proposed AD would require revising certificate limitations and operating procedures of the existing airplane flight manual (AFM), to provide the flightcrew with procedures for hot flight deck or cabin temperatures to follow under certain conditions. 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 October 4, 2019. ADDRESSES: You may send comments, using the procedures found in 14 CFR 11.43 and 11.45, by any of the following methods: • Federal eRulemaking Portal: Go to http://www.regulations.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion Comments Invited The FAA invites you to send any written relevant data, views, or arguments about this proposal. Send your comments to an address listed under the ADDRESSES section. Include ‘‘Docket No. FAA–2019–0605; Product Identifier 2019–NM–093–AD’’ at the beginning of your comments. The FAA specifically invites comments on the overall regulatory, economic, environmental, and energy aspects of this NPRM. The FAA will consider all comments received by the closing date and may amend this NPRM because of those comments. The FAA will post all comments received, without change, to http:// www.regulations.gov, including any The FAA has received reports of excessively high flight deck or cabin temperatures caused by a loss of power or open circuit breaker on the pack flow control assembly combined with a PACK OFF selection. This combination can drive a single pack into full hot output, which results in the pack operating hot without indication, and without overheat protection. This condition, if not addressed, could result in excessively high flight deck temperatures, which may inhibit safe operation of the airplane by the flightcrew and contribute to loss of continued safe flight and landing. It could also result in excessively high cabin temperatures, which may cause physiological distress to passengers and cabin crew. FAA’s Determination 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 in other products of the same type design. Proposed AD Requirements This proposed AD would require revising certificate limitations and operating procedures of the existing AFM, to provide the flightcrew with procedures for hot flight deck or cabin temperatures to follow under certain conditions.

Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

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

SUMMARY: The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) 
for all The Boeing Company Model 757 airplanes and Model 767-200, -300, 
and -300F series airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of 
excessively high flight deck or cabin temperatures. This proposed AD 
would require revising certificate limitations and operating procedures 
of the existing airplane flight manual (AFM), to provide the flightcrew 
with procedures for hot flight deck or cabin temperatures to follow 
under certain conditions. 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 October 4, 
2019.

ADDRESSES: You may send comments, using the procedures found in 14 CFR 
11.43 and 11.45, by any of the following methods:
     Federal eRulemaking Portal: Go to http://www.regulations.gov. Follow the instructions for submitting comments.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Comments Invited

    The FAA invites you to send any written relevant data, views, or 
arguments about this proposal. Send your comments to an address listed 
under the ADDRESSES section. Include ``Docket No. FAA-2019-0605; 
Product Identifier 2019-NM-093-AD'' at the beginning of your comments. 
The FAA specifically invites comments on the overall regulatory, 
economic, environmental, and energy aspects of this NPRM. The FAA will 
consider all comments received by the closing date and may amend this 
NPRM because of those comments.
    The FAA will post all comments received, without change, to http://www.regulations.gov, including any personal information you provide. 
The FAA will also post a report summarizing each substantive verbal 
contact received about this NPRM.

Discussion

    The FAA has received reports of excessively high flight deck or 
cabin temperatures caused by a loss of power or open circuit breaker on 
the pack flow control assembly combined with a PACK OFF selection. This 
combination can drive a single pack into full hot output, which results 
in the pack operating hot without indication, and without overheat 
protection. This condition, if not addressed, could result in 
excessively high flight deck temperatures, which may inhibit safe 
operation of the airplane by the flightcrew and contribute to loss of 
continued safe flight and landing. It could also result in excessively 
high cabin temperatures, which may cause physiological distress to 
passengers and cabin crew.

FAA's Determination

    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 in other products of the same type design.

Proposed AD Requirements

    This proposed AD would require revising certificate limitations and 
operating procedures of the existing AFM, to provide the flightcrew 
with procedures for hot flight deck or cabin temperatures to follow 
under certain conditions.

Costs of Compliance

    The FAA estimates that this proposed AD affects 866 airplanes of 
U.S. registry. The FAA estimates 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.
    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

[[Page 43081]]

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.
