SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Correcting Amendment to Regulations The RCPP interim rule was published February 13, 2020, (85 FR 8131–8145) to implement the RCPP regulations. During the final stage of developing the interim rule, several paragraphs were inadvertently omitted in 7 CFR 1464.5. Several paragraphs about producer eligibility and practice standards were mistakenly deleted. This correction adds in the correct text for paragraph (c)(4), adds paragraphs (c)(5), (d), and (e)(1), and renumbers the text that should have been paragraph (e)(2). Paragraph (c) specifies requirements for producer to be eligible for RCPP. Paragraph (d) specifies requirements for land to be considered eligible for enrollment in RCPP. Paragraph (e) specifies requirements for activities to be eligible for RCPP.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion The FAA was notified by Quest (now Daher Aircraft Design, LLC) that the performance section in the Kodiak 100 Series POH/AFM, revisions 8 through 21, and supplement 5, initial release and revision 01, to the POH/AFM were published with incorrect low weight landing distances in the ‘‘Obstacle Landing Distance’’ tables. The landing distances for 6,000 lbs., 5,000 lbs., and 4,000 lbs. were incorrectly calculated and show values up to 520 feet shorter than actual expected performance. However, the landing distances for 6,690 lbs. are accurate. Model Kodiak 100 airplanes were originally type certificated with a gross PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 weight of 6,690 lbs. Under an amended type certificate, serial numbers 100– 0035 and subsequent were produced with an increased gross weight configuration of 7,255 lbs. and delivered with a POH/AFM (revisions 8 through 21) that contained limitations and performance data for the increased gross weight. For airplanes with serial numbers produced before 100–0035, Quest issued Service Notice SN–025 as an optional retrofit to increase the gross weight. Airplanes retrofitted with SN– 025 were provided a supplement 5 to the POH/AFM (revision 1 through 7) that contained the limitations and performance changes associated with the increased gross weight. Quest issued revision 22 of the POH/ AFM to correct the landing distances data in the ‘‘Obstacle Landing Distance’’ table and to correct other errors and inconsistencies throughout the document. If not corrected, incorrect obstacle landing distances for weights below max gross weight could result in a runway overrun. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products. Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51 The FAA reviewed Table 5–19: Obstacle Landing Distance, pages 5_68 and 5_69, of Section 5, Performance, of the KODIAK 100 Series Aircraft Pilot’s Operating Handbook and FAA Approved Airplane Flight Manual (Document No: AM901.0), Revision 22, dated April 10, 2019. These pages contain correct landing distance data in the ‘‘Obstacle Landing Distance’’ table. 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. Other Related Service Information The FAA reviewed Quest Safety Communique, QSC–011, Revision 00, dated April 1, 2019. This document notifies owner/operators of the incorrect data in the ‘‘Obstacle Landing Distance’’ table and recommends they revise their procedures until the corrected data is available. FAA’s Determination The FAA is issuing this AD because it evaluated all relevant information and determined the unsafe condition described previously is likely to exist or develop in other products of the same type design.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Correcting Amendment to Regulations

    The RCPP interim rule was published February 13, 2020, (85 FR 8131-
8145) to implement the RCPP regulations. During the final stage of 
developing the interim rule, several paragraphs were inadvertently 
omitted in 7 CFR 1464.5. Several paragraphs about producer eligibility 
and practice standards were mistakenly deleted. This correction adds in 
the correct text for paragraph (c)(4), adds paragraphs (c)(5), (d), and 
(e)(1), and renumbers the text that should have been paragraph (e)(2). 
Paragraph (c) specifies requirements for producer to be eligible for 
RCPP. Paragraph (d) specifies requirements for land to be considered 
eligible for enrollment in RCPP. Paragraph (e) specifies requirements 
for activities to be eligible for RCPP.
