Send your comments to an address listed under the ADDRESSES section. Include ‘‘Docket No. FAA–2019–1076; Product Identifier 2019–NM–173–AD’’ at the beginning of your comments. The FAA specifically invites comments on the Discussion Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation authority for Canada, has issued Canadian AD CF–2019–29, dated August 12, 2019 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or ‘‘the MCAI’’), to correct an unsafe condition for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model BD–100–1A10 airplanes. 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– 1076. This proposed AD was prompted by a report of an in-flight event where a flightcrew observed a SPOILER FAIL message and had difficulty maintaining roll control of the airplane. The FAA is proposing this AD to address uncommanded deployment of the multifunction spoiler at certain positions, which in combination with specific flap positions and airspeeds, could create an unacceptably high flightcrew workload in maintaining roll control of the airplane and could possibly lead to loss of controllability of the airplane. See the MCAI for additional background information. Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51 Bombardier has issued Bombardier Challenger 300, Airplane Flight Manual, Publication No. CSP 100–1, Revision 56, dated July 8, 2019; and Bombardier Challenger 350, Airplane Flight Manual, Publication No. CH 350 AFM, Revision 22, dated July 8, 2019. This service information describes procedures for ‘‘Flight Controls’’ in the Non-Normal Procedures section of the applicable AFM. These documents are distinct since they apply to different airplane serial numbers. 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 require revising the existing AFM to incorporate procedures for ‘‘Flight Controls’’ in the Non-Normal Procedures section of the applicable AFM as described previously. Costs of Compliance The FAA estimates that this proposed AD affects 577 airplanes of U.S. registry. The FAA estimates 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 $49,045 khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with PROPOSALS Authority for This Rulemaking Title 49 of the United States Code specifies the FAA’s authority to issue rules on aviation safety.

What is the background for this proposed rulemaking? III. What did New Jersey submit? IV. What is the EPA’s evaluation of New Jersey’s SIP submittal? V. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews I. What action is the EPA proposing? The EPA is proposing to approve a revision to the State Implementation Plan (SIP) submitted by the State of New Jersey on May 13, 2019, for purposes of making a negative declaration that no sources exist in the State of New Jersey that would be subject to the 2016 Oil and Gas CTG. II. What is the background for this proposed rulemaking? On October 27, 2016, EPA published in the Federal Register the ‘‘Release of Final Control Techniques Guidelines for the Oil and Natural Gas Industry.’’ See 81 FR 74798. The CTG provided information to state, local, and tribal air agencies to assist them in determining reasonably available control technology (RACT) for volatile organic compounds (VOC) emissions from select oil and natural gas industry emission sources. Clean Air Act (CAA) section 182(b)(2)(A) requires that for ozone nonattainment areas classified as Moderate, states must revise their SIPs to include provisions to implement RACT for each category of VOC sources covered by a CTG document issued between November 15, 1990, and the date of attainment. CAA section 184(b)(1)(B) extends this requirement to states in the Ozone Transport Region (OTR). States are required to adopt RACT controls that are at least as stringent as those found within the CTG. III. What did New Jersey submit? On May 13, 2019, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) submitted to the EPA a SIP revision consisting of a negative declaration for the 2016 Oil and Gas CTG. The oil and natural gas industry includes oil and natural gas operations involved in the extraction and production of crude oil and natural gas, as well as the processing, transmission, storage, and distribution of natural gas. For oil, the industry includes all operations from the well to the point of custody transfer at a petroleum refinery. For natural gas, the industry includes all operations from the well to the customer. The NJDEP cross referenced the source operations covered in the 2016 Oil and Gas CTG and its applicability to New Jersey.

Discussion

    Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation 
authority for Canada, has issued Canadian AD CF-2019-29, dated August 
12, 2019 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing 
Airworthiness Information, or ``the MCAI''), to correct an unsafe 
condition for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model BD-100-1A10 airplanes. 
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-
1076.
    This proposed AD was prompted by a report of an in-flight event 
where a flightcrew observed a SPOILER FAIL message and had difficulty 
maintaining roll control of the airplane. The FAA is proposing this AD 
to address uncommanded deployment of the multi-function spoiler at 
certain positions, which in combination with specific flap positions 
and airspeeds, could create an unacceptably high flightcrew workload in 
maintaining roll control of the airplane and could possibly lead to 
loss of controllability of the airplane. See the MCAI for additional 
background information.

Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51

    Bombardier has issued Bombardier Challenger 300, Airplane Flight 
Manual, Publication No. CSP 100-1, Revision 56, dated July 8, 2019; and 
Bombardier Challenger 350, Airplane Flight Manual, Publication No. CH 
350 AFM, Revision 22, dated July 8, 2019. This service information 
describes procedures for ``Flight Controls'' in the Non-Normal 
Procedures section of the applicable AFM. These documents are distinct 
since they apply to different airplane serial numbers.
    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 require revising the existing AFM to 
incorporate procedures for ``Flight Controls'' in the Non-Normal 
Procedures section of the applicable AFM as described previously.

Costs of Compliance

    The FAA estimates that this proposed AD affects 577 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

[[Page 3555]]

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.

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

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-2019-1076; Product Identifier 2019-
NM-173-AD.

(a) Comments Due Date

    The FAA must receive comments by March 9, 2020.

(b) Affected ADs

    None.

(c) Applicability

    This AD applies to Bombardier, Inc., Model BD-100-1A10 
airplanes, certificated in any category, serial numbers 20003 
through 20788 inclusive.

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 27, Flight 
controls.

(e) Reason

    This AD was prompted by a report of an in-flight event where a 
flightcrew observed a SPOILER FAIL message and had difficulty 
maintaining roll control of the airplane. The FAA is issuing this AD 
to address uncommanded deployment of the multi-function spoiler at 
certain positions, which in combination with specific flap positions 
and airspeeds, could create an unacceptably high flightcrew workload 
in maintaining roll control of the airplane and could possibly lead 
to loss of controllability of the airplane.

(f) Compliance

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

(g) Airplane Flight Manual (AFM) Revisions

    Within 30 days after the effective date of this AD: Revise the 
Non-Normal Procedures section of the existing AFM to incorporate the 
information in Section 05-23, ``Flight Controls'' of the applicable 
AFM specified in figure 1 to paragraph (g) of this AD.
