Need for the Correction As published, the EASA AD number in the preamble and regulatory text is incorrectly identified as ‘‘EASA AD 2020–100R1,’’ where the correct identification is ‘‘EASA AD 2020– 0100R1.’’ Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51 EASA AD 2020–0100R1, dated November 4, 2020, describes procedures for repair of each affected part, or replacement with a serviceable part. 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 Correction of Publication This document corrects multiple errors 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, the FAA is publishing the entire rule in the Federal Register. The effective date of this AD remains March 30, 2021. Since this action only corrects references to an EASA AD number, it has no adverse economic impact and imposes no additional burden on any person. Therefore, the FAA has determined that notice and public procedures are unnecessary. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by reference, Safety. Adoption of the Correction Accordingly, pursuant to the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the Federal Aviation Administration amends part 39 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 39) as follows: PART 39—AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES 1. The authority citation for part 39 continues to read as follows: ■ Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:13 Mar 09, 2021 Jkt 253001 [Corrected] 2.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Authority for This Rulemaking The FAA’s authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is found in Title 49 of the United States Code. 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. This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of the airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it modifies the route structure as necessary to preserve the safe and efficient flow of air traffic within the National Airspace System. PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 History The FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for Docket No. FAA–2020–0923 in the Federal Register (85 FR 70093; November 4, 2020), to amend Jet Route J–134, RNAV route Q–67, and VOR Federal airways V–45 and V–119; establish RNAV route Q–176; and remove Jet Route J–91 and VOR Federal airway V–174 in the vicinity of Henderson, WV. The proposed amendment, establishment, and revocation actions were due to the planned decommissioning of the VOR portion of the Henderson, WV, VORTAC NAVAID. Interested parties were invited to participate in this rulemaking effort by submitting written comments on the proposal. No comments were received. Subsequent to the NPRM, the Office of the Federal Register published a NPRM correction for Docket No. FAA– 2020–0923 in the Federal Register (85 FR 71293; November 9, 2020), correcting the RNAV route formatting for the Q–67 and Q–176 descriptions in the regulatory text and also adding the missing ‘‘Paragraph 6010(a) Domestic VOR Federal Airways’’ heading between the RNAV route Q–176 and VOR Federal airway V–45 descriptions in the regulatory text. The correct RNAV route formatting and Domestic VOR Federal Airways heading are included in the regulatory text in this rule. Additionally, subsequent to the NPRM, the FAA published a rule for Docket No. FAA–2020–0709 in the Federal Register (85 FR 79117; December 9, 2020), amending VOR Federal airway V–119 by removing the airway segment overlying the Clarion, PA, VOR/Distance Measuring Equipment (VOR/DME) between the Indian Head, PA, VORTAC and the Clarion, PA, VOR/DME. That airway amendment, effective February 25, 2021, is included in this rule. Lastly, the state reference for the Henderson, WV, VORTAC was incorrectly listed as Kentucky (KY) in the Proposal section of the NPRM for Jet Routes J–91 and J–134. The correct state is WV and this action corrects those errors. Jet Routes are published in paragraph 2004, United States RNAV Q-routes are published in paragraph 2006, and VOR Federal airways are published in paragraph 6010(a) of FAA Order 7400.11E, dated July 21, 2020, and effective September 15, 2020, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The ATS routes listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. E:\FR\FM\10MRR1.SGM 10MRR1

regulatory information has been corrected, the FAA is publishing the 
entire rule in the Federal Register.
    The effective date of this AD remains March 30, 2021.
    Since this action only corrects references to an EASA AD number, it 
has no adverse economic impact and imposes no additional burden on any 
person. Therefore, the FAA has determined that notice and public 
procedures are unnecessary.

(e) Reason

    This AD was prompted by a report of a quality issue with a 
certain repair method of damage-through honeycomb core cargo linings 
by speed patches applied to both sides. The FAA is issuing this AD 
to address reduced ability of repaired linings to contain smoke or 
fire, resulting in an increased risk of an uncontained fire in the 
cargo compartment and consequent structural damage to 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 
2020-0100R1, dated November 4, 2020 (EASA AD 2020-0100R1).

(h) Exceptions to EASA AD 2020-0100R1

AD requires using the effective date of this AD.
    (2) Where EASA AD 2020-0100R1 refers to ``19 May 2020 [the 
effective date of EASA AD 2020-0100 at original issue],'' this AD 
requires using the effective date of this AD.
    (3) Where task Aircraft Maintenance Manual (AMM) A330-A-25-XX-
3743-02001-690A-C specified in Airbus Service Bulletin A330-25-3743, 
dated September 23, 2019, states the measured dimension shall be 
equal to or more than ``30 mm (1.81 in),'' this AD requires using 
the measured dimension of ``30 mm (1.18 in).''

``For the FWD cargo-compartment, refer to Ref. AMM Task 25-54-00-
000-801,'' this AD requires using, ``For the FWD cargo-compartment, 
refer to Ref. AMM Task 25-52-00-000-801.''
    (5) The ``Remarks'' section of EASA AD 2020-0100R1 does not 
apply to this AD.

(i) Other FAA AD Provisions

    The following provisions also apply to this AD:
    (1) Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs): The Manager, 
Large Aircraft Section, International Validation 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 responsible Flight 
Standards Office, as appropriate. If sending information directly to 
the Large Aircraft Section, International Validation Branch, send it 
to the attention of the person identified in paragraph (j) of this 
AD. Information may be emailed to: [email protected]. 
Before using any approved AMOC, notify your appropriate principal 
inspector, or lacking a principal inspector, the manager of the 
responsible Flight Standards Office.
    (2) Contacting the Manufacturer: For any requirement in this AD 
to obtain instructions from a manufacturer, the instructions must be 
accomplished using a method approved by the Manager, Large Aircraft 
Section, International Validation Branch, FAA; or EASA; or Airbus 
SAS's EASA Design Organization Approval (DOA). If approved by the 
DOA, the approval must include the DOA-authorized signature.
    (3) Required for Compliance (RC): Except as required by 
paragraph (i)(2) of this AD, if any service information contains 
procedures or tests that are identified as RC, those procedures and 
tests must be done to comply with this AD; any procedures or tests 
that are not identified as RC are recommended. Those procedures and 
tests that are not identified as RC may be deviated from using 
accepted methods in accordance with the operator's maintenance or 
inspection program without obtaining approval of an AMOC, provided 
the procedures and tests identified as RC can be done and the 
airplane can be put back in an airworthy condition. Any 
substitutions or changes to procedures or tests identified as RC 
require approval of an AMOC.
