SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion The FAA issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 by adding an AD that would apply to certain GE GEnx–1B64/P2, –1B67/P2, –1B70/P2, –1B70C/P2, –1B70/75/P2, –1B74/75/P2, –1B76/P2, –1B76A/P2, and GEnx–2B67/P model turbofan engines. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on June 8, 2020 (85 FR 35021). The NPRM was prompted by the detection of meltrelated freckles in the billet, which may reduce the life limits of certain HPT rotor stage 2 disks and a certain stages 6–10 compressor rotor spool. The NPRM proposed to require the removal of certain HPT rotor stage 2 disk and the removal of a certain stages 6–10 compressor rotor spool before reaching their new life limits. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products. Comments The FAA gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this final rule. The following presents the comments received on the NPRM and the FAA’s response to each comment. Request to List Part and Serial Numbers GE requested that both the affected part and serial numbers be listed in the Applicability section of this AD instead of the affected engine serial numbers. The FAA agrees. The FAA recognizes that affected HPT rotor stage 2 disks could be moved from one engine to another engine. The intent of this AD is to mandate the removal of the affected PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 parts from service, regardless of the engine on which they are installed. The FAA is revising the Applicability section of this AD as suggested by the commenter. This change does not expand the scope of this AD because the number of affected engines installed on airplanes of U.S. registry remains the same in this final rule compared to what was published in the NPRM. Support for the AD The Air Line Pilots Association, International; the Boeing Company; and United Airlines Engineering expressed support for the AD as written. Conclusion The FAA reviewed the relevant data, considered the comments received, and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting this final rule with the changes described previously and minor editorial changes. The FAA has determined that these minor changes: • Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the NPRM for addressing the unsafe condition; and • Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was already proposed in the NPRM. The FAA also determined that these changes will not increase the economic burden on any operator or increase the scope of this final rule. Related Service Information The FAA reviewed GE GEnx–1B Service Bulletin (SB) 72–0473 R00, dated April 14, 2020; GE GEnx–1B SB 72–0474 R00, dated April 14, 2020; and GE GEnx–2B SB 72–0416 R00, dated April 14, 2020. GE GEnx–1B SB 72– 0473 R00 describes procedures for removing and replacing the HPT rotor stage 2 disks on GE GEnx–1B model engines. GE GEnx–1B SB 72–0474 R00 describes procedures for removing and replacing the stages 6–10 compressor rotor spool on GE GEnx–1B model engines. GE GEnx–2B SB 72–0416 R00 describes procedures for removing and replacing the HPT rotor stage 2 disks on GE GEnx–2B model engines. Costs of Compliance The FAA estimates that this AD affects two engines installed on airplanes of U.S. registry; one engine requires the HPT rotor stage 2 disk replacement and one engine requires the stages 6–10 compressor rotor spool replacement. The FAA estimates the following costs to comply with this AD: E:\FR\FM\29SER1.SGM 29SER1 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 189 / Tuesday, September 29, 2020 / Rules and Regulations 60899 ESTIMATED COSTS Action Labor cost Removal and replacement of the HPT rotor stage 2 disk ......

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion

    The FAA issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 
CFR part 39 by adding an AD that would apply to certain GE GEnx-1B64/
P2, -1B67/P2, -1B70/P2, -1B70C/P2, -1B70/75/P2, -1B74/75/P2, -1B76/P2, 
-1B76A/P2, and GEnx-2B67/P model turbofan engines. The NPRM published 
in the Federal Register on June 8, 2020 (85 FR 35021). The NPRM was 
prompted by the detection of melt-related freckles in the billet, which 
may reduce the life limits of certain HPT rotor stage 2 disks and a 
certain stages 6-10 compressor rotor spool. The NPRM proposed to 
require the removal of certain HPT rotor stage 2 disk and the removal 
of a certain stages 6-10 compressor rotor spool before reaching their 
new life limits. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe 
condition on these products.

Comments

    The FAA gave the public the opportunity to participate in 
developing this final rule. The following presents the comments 
received on the NPRM and the FAA's response to each comment.

Request to List Part and Serial Numbers

    GE requested that both the affected part and serial numbers be 
listed in the Applicability section of this AD instead of the affected 
engine serial numbers.
    The FAA agrees. The FAA recognizes that affected HPT rotor stage 2 
disks could be moved from one engine to another engine. The intent of 
this AD is to mandate the removal of the affected parts from service, 
regardless of the engine on which they are installed. The FAA is 
revising the Applicability section of this AD as suggested by the 
commenter. This change does not expand the scope of this AD because the 
number of affected engines installed on airplanes of U.S. registry 
remains the same in this final rule compared to what was published in 
the NPRM.

Support for the AD

    The Air Line Pilots Association, International; the Boeing Company; 
and United Airlines Engineering expressed support for the AD as 
written.

Conclusion

    The FAA reviewed the relevant data, considered the comments 
received, and determined that air safety and the public interest 
require adopting this final rule with the changes described previously 
and minor editorial changes. The FAA has determined that these minor 
changes:
     Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the 
NPRM for addressing the unsafe condition; and
     Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was 
already proposed in the NPRM.
    The FAA also determined that these changes will not increase the 
economic burden on any operator or increase the scope of this final 
rule.

Related Service Information

    The FAA reviewed GE GEnx-1B Service Bulletin (SB) 72-0473 R00, 
dated April 14, 2020; GE GEnx-1B SB 72-0474 R00, dated April 14, 2020; 
and GE GEnx-2B SB 72-0416 R00, dated April 14, 2020. GE GEnx-1B SB 72-
0473 R00 describes procedures for removing and replacing the HPT rotor 
stage 2 disks on GE GEnx-1B model engines. GE GEnx-1B SB 72-0474 R00 
describes procedures for removing and replacing the stages 6-10 
compressor rotor spool on GE GEnx-1B model engines. GE GEnx-2B SB 72-
0416 R00 describes procedures for removing and replacing the HPT rotor 
stage 2 disks on GE GEnx-2B model engines.

Costs of Compliance

    The FAA estimates that this AD affects two engines installed on 
airplanes of U.S. registry; one engine requires the HPT rotor stage 2 
disk replacement and one engine requires the stages 6-10 compressor 
rotor spool replacement.
    The FAA estimates the following costs to comply with this 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.

Regulatory Findings

    This AD will not have federalism implications under Executive Order 
13132. This AD will 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 that this AD:
    (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.
