The FAA will consider all the comments received and may conduct additional rulemaking based on those comments. Discussion EASA, which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the European Union, has issued EASA AD No. 2019– 0160, dated July 5, 2019, to correct an unsafe condition for Leonardo S.p.A. Model AW189 helicopters, with T/R damper part number (P/N) 4F640V00254 with a serial number (S/ N) up to LK1229 inclusive. The EASA AD excludes any T/R damper that is marked with ‘‘R’’ on its S/N and any T/ R damper that has accumulated 150 flight hours or more since installation on a helicopter and that has been continuously installed for 12 months or more. EASA advises that occurrences were reported of leakage of the T/R damper hydraulic fluid. EASA advises that the T/R damper hydraulic fluid leakage occurred on newly installed T/ R dampers and those that had accumulated less than 150 flight hours. Therefore, the EASA AD requires repetitive visual inspections of the hydraulic fluid level of each T/R damper at intervals not to exceed 10 flight hours until the T/R damper accumulates 150 flight hours since first installation and 10 months after the effective date of the EASA AD. The EASA AD also provides a terminating action and requires a ground run following installation of an affected T/ R damper. Additionally, depending on the inspection results, the EASA AD requires replacement of the affected part with a serviceable part, returning T/R dampers for re-work and reidentification, and emailing information and pictures to Leonardo Helicopter Division. FAA’s Determination These helicopters have been approved by EASA and are approved for operation in the United States. Pursuant to the FAA’s bilateral agreement with the European Union, EASA has notified the FAA about the unsafe condition described in its AD. The FAA is issuing this AD after evaluating all known E:\FR\FM\26FER1.SGM 26FER1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: As published, AD 2020-01-18, Amendment 39-
19824 (85 FR 5304, January 30, 2020) (``AD 2020-01-18''), requires 
incorporating a new revision to the Airworthiness Limitations section 
of the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness to mandate certain 
repetitive inspections for fatigue cracking of principal structural 
elements (PSEs), and revising the existing maintenance or inspection 
program, as applicable, to incorporate additional new or more 
restrictive airworthiness limitations, for all The Boeing Company Model 
757 airplanes.

Need for the Correction

    As published, the service information reference for revising the 
existing maintenance or inspection program specified in the regulatory 
text is incorrect. The incorrectly specified reference was Boeing 757 
Maintenance Planning Data (MPD) Document, Section 9, Airworthiness 
Limitations (AWLs) and Certification Maintenance Requirements (CMRs), 
D622N001-9, Revision October 2018, which did not include reference to 
Subsection B. The correct reference is Subsection B., ``Airworthiness 
Limitations--Structural Inspections,'' of Boeing 757 Maintenance 
Planning Data (MPD) Document, Section 9, Airworthiness Limitations 
(AWLs) and Certification Maintenance Requirements (CMRs), D622N001-9, 
Revision October 2018.

Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51

    The FAA reviewed Boeing 757 Maintenance Planning Data (MPD) 
Document, Section 9, Airworthiness Limitations (AWLs) and Certification 
Maintenance Requirements (CMRs), D622N001-9, Revision October 2018. 
This service information describes procedures for airworthiness 
limitations for structural inspections, fuel tank systems, safe life 
limits, and certification maintenance requirements.
    This AD also requires the following service information, which the 
Director of the Federal Register approved for incorporation by

Section 9, ``Airworthiness Limitations and Certification Maintenance 
Requirements,'' Subsection B. of Boeing Document D622N001-9, Revision 
``June 2005.''
    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.

Correction of Publication

    This document corrects an error and correctly adds the AD as an 
amendment to 14 CFR 39.13. Although no other part of the preamble or 
regulatory information has been corrected, we are publishing the entire 
rule in the Federal Register.
    The effective date of this AD remains March 5, 2020.
    Since this action only corrects the service information reference 
for revising the existing maintenance or inspection program specified 
in the regulatory text, it has no adverse economic impact and imposes 
no additional burden on any person. Therefore, the FAA has determined 
that notice and public comment procedures are unnecessary.

May 26, 2006) (``AD 2006-11-11'').

(c) Applicability

    (1) This AD applies to all The Boeing Company Model 757-200, -
200PF, -200CB, and -300 series airplanes, certificated in any 
category.
    (2) Installation of Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) 
ST01518SE affects the ability to accomplish the actions required by 
this AD. Therefore, for airplanes on which STC ST01518SE is 
installed, a ``change in product'' alternative method of compliance 
(AMOC) approval request is necessary to comply with the requirements 
of 14 CFR 39.17.

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 28, Fuel; 53, 
Fuselage; 57, Wings.

(e) Unsafe Condition

    This AD was prompted by a determination that new or more 
restrictive airworthiness limitations are necessary. The FAA is 
issuing this AD to address fatigue cracking of various principal 
structural elements (PSEs); such fatigue cracking could adversely 
affect the structural integrity of these airplanes.

(f) Compliance

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

(g) Retained Revision to the Maintenance or Inspection Program, With No 
Changes

    This paragraph restates the requirements of paragraph (h) of AD 
2006-11-11, with no changes. Within 36 months after June 30, 2006 
(the effective date of AD 2006-11-11), revise Section 9, 
``Airworthiness Limitations and CMRs'' of the Boeing 757 Maintenance 
Planning Data (MPD) Document to incorporate Subsection B. of Boeing 
Document D622N001-9, Revision ``May 2003;'' or Revision ``June 
2005;'' as applicable.

(h) New Maintenance or Inspection Program Revision

    (1) Except for airplanes identified in paragraph (h)(2) of this 
AD: Within 18 months after the effective date of this AD, revise the 
existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to 
incorporate the information specified in Subsection B., 
``Airworthiness Limitations--Structural Inspections,'' of Boeing 757 
Maintenance Planning Data (MPD) Document, Section 9, Airworthiness 
Limitations (AWLs) and Certification Maintenance Requirements 
(CMRs), D622N001-9, Revision October 2018. The initial compliance 
time for doing the new or updated tasks is at the time specified in 
Subsection B., ``Airworthiness Limitations--Structural 
Inspections,'' of Boeing 757 Maintenance Planning Data (MPD) 
Document, Section 9, Airworthiness Limitations (AWLs) and 
Certification Maintenance Requirements (CMRs), D622N001-9, Revision 
October 2018, or within 18 months after the effective date of this 
AD, whichever occurs later. The compliance time for doing the 
unchanged tasks is at the time specified in Subsection B., 
``Airworthiness Limitations--Structural Inspections,'' of Boeing 757 
Maintenance Planning Data (MPD) Document, Section 9, Airworthiness 
Limitations (AWLs) and Certification Maintenance Requirements 
(CMRs), D622N001-9, Revision October 2018.
    (2) For airplanes with STC ST01518SE installed: Within 18 months 
after the effective date of this AD, revise the existing maintenance 
or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate a supplemental 
program to address the effect of STC ST01518SE, in accordance with 
the procedures specified in paragraph (l) of this AD.

(i) No Alternative Actions, Intervals, or Critical Design Configuration 
Control Limitations (CDCCLs) for Paragraph (g) of This AD

    Except as required by paragraph (h) of this AD: After the 
existing maintenance or inspection program has been revised as 
required by paragraph (g) of this AD, no alternative actions (e.g., 
inspections), intervals, or CDCCLs may be used unless the actions, 
intervals, and CDCCLs are approved as an alternative method of 
compliance (AMOC) in accordance with the procedures specified in 
paragraph (l) of this AD.

(j) No Alternative Actions, Intervals, or CDCCLs for Paragraph (h) of 
This AD

    After the existing maintenance or inspection program has been 
revised as required by paragraph (h) of this AD, no alternative 
actions (e.g., inspections), intervals, or CDCCLs may be used unless 
the actions, intervals, and CDCCLs are approved as an AMOC in 
accordance with the procedures specified in paragraph (l) of this 
AD.

(k) Terminating Action for the Requirements of Paragraph (g) of This AD

    Accomplishing the revision required by paragraph (h) of this AD 
terminates the revision required by paragraph (g) of this AD.

(l) Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs)

    (1) The Manager, Los Angeles ACO Branch, FAA, has the authority 
to approve AMOCs for this AD, if requested using the procedures 
found in 14 CFR 39.19. In accordance with 14 CFR 39.19, send your 
request to your principal inspector or local Flight Standards 
District Office, as appropriate. If sending information directly to 
the manager of the certification office, send it to the attention of 
the person identified in paragraph (m) of this AD. Information may 
be emailed to: [email protected].
    (2) Before using any approved AMOC, notify your appropriate 
principal inspector, or lacking a principal inspector, the manager 
of the local flight standards district office/certificate holding 
district office.
    (3) An AMOC that provides an acceptable level of safety may be 
used for any repair, modification, or alteration required by this AD 
if it is approved by The Boeing Company Organization Designation 
Authorization (ODA) that has been authorized by the Manager, Los 
Angeles ACO Branch, FAA, to make those findings. To be approved, the 
repair method, modification deviation, or alteration deviation must 
meet the certification basis of the airplane, and the approval must 
specifically refer to this AD.
    (4) AMOCs approved previously for AD 2001-20-12, Amendment 39-
12460 (66 FR 52492, October 16, 2001), and AD 2006-11-11, are 
approved as AMOCs for the corresponding provisions of this AD.
