ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: The FAA is superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2019–03– 27, which applied to all Dassault Aviation Model Falcon 10 airplanes. AD 2019–03–27 required repetitive detailed inspections of certain wing anti-ice outboard flexible hoses, and replacement of certain wing anti-ice outboard flexible hoses. This AD continues to require the actions in AD 2019–03–27, and also adds a new life limit for the improved wing anti-ice flexible hose; as specified in a European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which is incorporated by reference. This AD was prompted by a report indicating that certain wing anti-ice outboard flexible hoses were found damaged, likely resulting from the installation process, and the development of an improved wing antiice flexible hose. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products. DATES: This AD is effective March 31, 2021.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FAA gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this final rule. The FAA received no comments on the NPRM or on the determination of the cost to the public. Discussion EASA AD 2020–0127 describes procedures for repetitive detailed inspections of certain wing anti-ice outboard flexible hoses, replacement of certain wing anti-ice outboard flexible hoses, a new life limit for certain wing anti-ice outboard flexible hoses, and optional terminating actions for the repetitive inspections (replacement of all damaged affected wing anti-ice outboard flexible hoses or accomplishing and passing an inspection on an affected wing anti-ice outboard flexible hose after it has accumulated 100 flight cycles since installation on an airplane). This material 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. The EASA, which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the European Union, has issued EASA AD 2020–0127, dated June 4, 2020 (EASA AD 2020–0127) (also referred to as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or the MCAI), to correct an unsafe condition for all Dassault Aviation Model Falcon 10 airplanes. The FAA issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 to supersede AD 2019–03–27, Amendment 39–19579 (84 FR 7801, March 5, 2019) (AD 2019–03–27). AD 2019–03–27 applied to all Dassault Aviation Model Falcon 10 airplanes. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on November 2, 2020 (85 FR 69269). The NPRM was prompted by a report indicating that certain wing antiice outboard flexible hoses were found damaged, likely resulting from the installation process, and the development of an improved wing antiice flexible hose. The NPRM proposed to continue to require the actions in AD 2019–03–27, as specified in an EASA PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Conclusion The FAA reviewed the relevant data and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting this final rule as proposed, except for minor editorial changes.

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. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with RULES Regulatory Findings This AD will not have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background 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 CF6–80C2A1, CF6– 80C2A2, CF6–80C2A3, CF6–80C2A5, CF6–80C2A5F, CF6–80C2A8, CF6– 80C2B1, CF6–80C2B1F, CF6–80C2B2, CF6–80C2B2F, CF6–80C2B4, CF6– 80C2B4F, CF6–80C2B5F, CF6–80C2B6, CF6–80C2B6F, CF6–80C2B6FA, CF6– 80C2B7F, CF6–80C2B8F, and CF6– 80C2D1F model turbofan engines. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on April 10, 2020 (85 FR 20211). The NPRM was prompted by reports of incidents that resulted in a significant fuel loss during flight and an IFSD of the engine. The incidents resulted from inserts on the HMU/MEC idler adapter on the AGB assembly pulling out of the housing. An investigation by the manufacturer discovered improperly cut threads on the inserts and erroneous instructions in the maintenance manual, which contributed to poor thread engagement. In the NPRM, the FAA proposed to require initial and repetitive shim checks of the HMU/MEC idler adapter on the AGB assembly and, depending on the results of the shim check, possible replacement of the inserts on the HMU/MEC idler adapter.

Airworthiness Directives; Dassault Aviation Airplanes

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of 
Transportation (DOT).

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The FAA is superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2019-03-
27, which applied to all Dassault Aviation Model Falcon 10 airplanes. 
AD 2019-03-27 required repetitive detailed inspections of certain wing 
anti-ice outboard flexible hoses, and replacement of certain wing anti-
ice outboard flexible hoses. This AD continues to require the actions 
in AD 2019-03-27, and also adds a new life limit for the improved wing 
anti-ice flexible hose; as specified in a European Union Aviation 
Safety Agency (EASA) AD, which is incorporated by reference. This AD 
was prompted by a report indicating that certain wing anti-ice outboard 
flexible hoses were found damaged, likely resulting from the 
installation process, and the development of an improved wing anti-ice 
flexible hose. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe 
condition on these products.

DATES: This AD is effective March 31, 2021.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion

    The EASA, which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the 
European Union, has issued EASA AD 2020-0127, dated June 4, 2020 (EASA 
AD 2020-0127) (also referred to as the Mandatory Continuing 
Airworthiness Information, or the MCAI), to correct an unsafe condition 
for all Dassault Aviation Model Falcon 10 airplanes.
    The FAA issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 
CFR part 39 to supersede AD 2019-03-27, Amendment 39-19579 (84 FR 7801, 
March 5, 2019) (AD 2019-03-27). AD 2019-03-27 applied to all Dassault 
Aviation Model Falcon 10 airplanes. The NPRM published in the Federal 
Register on November 2, 2020 (85 FR 69269). The NPRM was prompted by a 
report indicating that certain wing anti-ice outboard flexible hoses 
were found damaged, likely resulting from the installation process, and 
the development of an improved wing anti-ice flexible hose. The NPRM 
proposed to continue to require the actions in AD 2019-03-27, as 
specified in an EASA AD. The NPRM also proposed to require adding a new 
life limit for the improved wing anti-ice flexible hose, as specified 
in EASA AD 2020-0127.
    The FAA is issuing this AD to address damaged wing anti-ice 
outboard flexible hoses, which could lead to a loss of performance of 
the wing anti-ice protection system that is not annunciated to the 
pilot, and could result in reduced control of the airplane. See the 
MCAI for additional background information.

Comments

    The FAA gave the public the opportunity to participate in 
developing this final rule. The FAA received no comments on the NPRM or 
on the determination of the cost to the public.

Conclusion

    The FAA reviewed the relevant data and determined that air safety 
and the public interest require adopting this final rule as proposed, 
except for 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 estimates the following costs to do any necessary on-
condition replacements that would be required based on the results of 
any required actions. The FAA has no way of determining the number of 
aircraft that might need these on-condition replacements:

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.

List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39

    Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by 
reference, Safety.

Adoption of the Amendment

    Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the 
Administrator, the FAA amends 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:
0
a. Removing Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2019-03-27, Amendment 39-19579 
(84 FR 7801, March 5, 2019), and
0
b. Adding the following new airworthiness directive:

2021-03-12 Dassault Aviation: Amendment 39-21415; Docket No. FAA-
2020-0977; Project Identifier MCAI-2020-01106-T.

(a) Effective Date

    This airworthiness directive (AD) is effective March 31, 2021.

(b) Affected AD

    This AD replaces AD 2019-03-27, Amendment 39-19579 (84 FR 7801, 
March 5, 2019) (AD 2019-03-27).

(c) Applicability

    This AD applies to all Dassault Aviation Model Falcon 10 
airplanes, certificated in any category.

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 30, Ice and rain 
protection.

(e) Reason

    This AD was prompted by a report indicating that certain wing 
anti-ice outboard flexible hoses were found damaged, likely 
resulting from the installation process, and the development of an 
improved wing anti-ice flexible hose. The FAA is issuing this AD to 
address damaged wing anti-ice outboard flexible hoses, which could 
lead to a loss of performance of the wing anti-ice protection system 
that is not annunciated to the pilot, and could result in reduced 
control of the airplane.

(f) Compliance

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

(g) Requirements

    Except as specified in paragraph (h) of this AD: Comply with all 
required actions and compliance times specified in, and in 
accordance with, European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD 
2020-0127, dated June 4, 2020 (EASA AD 2020-0127).

(h) Exceptions to EASA AD 2020-0127

    (1) Where EASA AD 2020-0127 refers to February 25, 2019 (the 
effective date of EASA AD 2019-0040-E, dated February 21, 2019), 
this AD requires using March 8, 2019 (the effective date of AD 2019-
03-27).
    (2) Where EASA AD 2020-0127 refers to its effective date, this 
AD requires using the effective date of this AD.
    (3) The ``Remarks'' section of EASA AD 2020-0127 does not apply 
to this AD.
    (4) Where EASA AD 2020-0127 refers to paragraph (4) of EASA AD 
2017-0108 for applicable life limits, for this AD refer to FAA AD 
2016-19-07, Amendment 39-18656 (81 FR 63688, September 16, 2016).

(i) No Reporting Requirement

    Although the service information referenced in EASA AD 2020-0127 
specifies to submit certain information to the manufacturer, this AD 
does not include that requirement.
