ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). AGENCY: The FAA proposes to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2019–21–11 and AD 2020–07–02. AD 2019–21–11 applies to all Pratt & Whitney (PW) PW1519G, PW1521G, PW1521G–3, PW1521GA, PW1524G, PW1524G–3, PW1525G, PW1525G–3, PW1919G, PW1921G, PW1922G, PW1923G, and PW1923G–A model turbofan engines. AD 2020–07–02 applies to all PW PW1519G, PW1521G, PW1521G–3, PW1521GA, PW1524G, PW1524G–3, PW1525G, and PW1525G– 3 model turbofan engines. AD 2019–21– 11 requires initial and repetitive borescope inspections (BSIs) of the lowpressure compressor (LPC) rotor 1 (R1) and, depending on the results of the inspections, replacement of the LPC. AD 2020–07–02 requires the removal from service of certain electronic engine control (EEC) full authority digital electronic control (FADEC) software and the installation of a software version eligible for installation. Since the FAA issued AD 2019–21–11 and AD 2020– 07–02, the manufacturer developed a new version of EEC FADEC software, which terminates the need for repetitive BSIs of the LPC R1. This proposed AD would continue to require repetitive BSIs of certain LPC R1s until replacement of EEC FADEC software with the updated software. This proposed AD would require a BSI after installation of the updated EEC FADEC software if certain Onboard Maintenance Message fault codes are displayed and meet specified criteria. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products. DATES: The FAA must receive comments on this proposed AD by May 10, 2021.

Background khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with PROPOSALS The FAA issued AD 2019–21–11, Amendment 39–19777 (84 FR 57813, October 29, 2019), (AD 2019–21–11) for certain PW PW1519G, PW1521G, PW1521GA, PW1524G, PW1525G, PW1521G–3, PW1524G–3, PW1525G–3, PW1919G, PW1921G, PW1922G, PW1923G, and PW1923G–A model turbofan engines. AD 2019–21–11 was prompted by an in-flight failure and additional findings of cracks in the LPC R1. AD 2019–21–11 requires initial and repetitive BSI of the LPC R1 and, depending on the results of the BSIs, replacement of the LPC. The agency issued AD 2019–21–11 to prevent failure of the LPC R1. The FAA issued AD 2020–07–02, Amendment 39–21106 (85 FR 17742, March 31, 2020), (AD 2020–07–02), for all PW PW1519G, PW1521G, PW1521G– 3, PW1521GA, PW1524G, PW1524G33, PW1525G, and PW1525G33 model turbofan engines. AD 2020–07–02 was prompted by reports of four in-flight shutdowns due to failure of the LPC R1 and by subsequent findings of cracked LPC R1s during inspections. AD 2020– 07–02 requires the removal from service of certain EEC FADEC software and the installation of a software version eligible for installation. The agency issued AD 2020–07–02 to prevent failure of the LPC R1. Actions Since AD 2019–21–11 and AD 2020–07–02 Were Issued Since the FAA issued AD 2019–21–11 and AD 2020–07–02, the manufacturer performed further root cause analysis of the LPC R1 failures and determined the need to update the EEC FADEC software to automate rotor speed management and limit the maximum climb and maximum continuous thrust ratings. FAA’s Determination The FAA is issuing this NPRM after determining that the unsafe condition described previously is likely to exist or develop on other products of the same type design. Related Service Information The FAA reviewed Pratt & Whitney Service Bulletin (SB) PW1000G–A–72– 00–0125–00A–930A–D, Issue No. 002, dated October 24, 2019; Pratt & Whitney SB PW1000G–A–72–00–0075–00B– 930A–D, Issue No. 003, dated October 24, 2019; Pratt & Whitney SB PW1000G–A–73–00–0044–00A–930A– D, Issue No. 004, dated February 23, 2021; and Pratt & Whitney SB PW1000G–A–73–00–0023–00B–930A– D, Issue No. 002, dated February 22, 2021. The FAA also reviewed Section PW1000G–A–72–00–00–02A–0B5A–A of Pratt & Whitney Engine Maintenance Manual (EMM), Issue No. 016, dated January 15, 2021; and Section PW1000G–A–72–31–00–00A–312A–D of Pratt & Whitney EMM, Issue No. 016, dated January 11, 2021. Pratt & Whitney SBs PW1000G–A– 72–00–0125–00A–930A–D, Issue No. 002, dated October 24, 2019, and PW1000G–A–72–00–0075–00B–930A– D, Issue No. 003, dated October 24, 2019, specify procedures for performing initial and repetitive BSI of certain LPC R1s. Pratt & Whitney SB PW1000G–A– 73–00–0044–00A–930A–D, Issue No. 004, dated February 23, 2021, specifies procedures for replacing or modifying the EEC to incorporate EEC FADEC software version V2.11.10.4. Pratt & Whitney SB PW1000G–A–73–00–0023– 00B–930A–D, Issue No. 002, dated February 22, 2021, specifies procedures for replacing or modifying the EEC to incorporate EEC FADEC software version V9.5.6.7. Section PW1000G–A–72–00–00–02A– 0B5A–A of Pratt & Whitney EMM, Issue No. 016, dated January 15, 2021, specifies procedures for inspecting the engine for possible engine damage after receiving notification of an N1 or N2 overspeed operation. Section PW1000G–A–72–31–00–00A–312A–D of Pratt & Whitney EMM, Issue No. 016, dated January 11, 2021, specifies procedures for performing a BSI of the LPC. Proposed AD Requirements in This NPRM This proposed AD would retain certain requirements of AD 2019–21–11 and none of the requirements of AD 2020–07–02. This proposed AD would continue to require a BSI of certain LPC R1s for damage and cracks and, depending on the results of the BSI, replacement of the LPC R1. This proposed AD would continue to require repetitive BSIs of certain LPC R1s until replacement of the EEC FADEC software with the updated software. This proposed AD would also require a BSI of the LPC R1 after installation of the updated EEC FADEC software if certain Onboard Maintenance Message fault codes are displayed and meet specified criteria. Interim Action The FAA considers that this proposed AD would be an interim action. If final corrective action is later identified, the FAA might consider additional rulemaking. Costs of Compliance The FAA estimates that this AD, if adopted as proposed, would affect 94 engines installed on airplanes of U.S. registry. The FAA estimates the following costs to comply with this proposed AD: ESTIMATED COSTS Action Labor cost Replace EEC FADEC software ...................... BSI per inspection cycle ................................. 2 work-hours × $85 per hour = $170 ............. 2 work-hours × $85 per hour = $170 .............

BSI of the LPC R1 if Onboard Maintenance Message fault codes are displayed. 40 work-hours × per $85 hour = $3,400 ...................... 2 work-hours × $85 per hour = $170 ........................... The FAA has included all known costs in its cost estimate. According to the manufacturer, however, some of the costs of this proposed AD may be covered under warranty, thereby reducing the cost impact on affected individuals. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with PROPOSALS 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 The FAA determined that this proposed AD would not have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. This proposed AD would 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 the proposed regulation: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866, (2) Would not affect intrastate aviation in Alaska, and (3) Would not have a significant economic impact, positive or negative, on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Airworthiness Directives; Pratt & Whitney Turbofan Engines

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

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

SUMMARY: The FAA proposes to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 
2019-21-11 and AD 2020-07-02. AD 2019-21-11 applies to all Pratt & 
Whitney (PW) PW1519G, PW1521G, PW1521G-3, PW1521GA, PW1524G, PW1524G-3, 
PW1525G, PW1525G-3, PW1919G, PW1921G, PW1922G, PW1923G, and PW1923G-A 
model turbofan engines. AD 2020-07-02 applies to all PW PW1519G, 
PW1521G, PW1521G-3, PW1521GA, PW1524G, PW1524G-3, PW1525G, and PW1525G-
3 model turbofan engines. AD 2019-21-11 requires initial and repetitive 
borescope inspections (BSIs) of the low-pressure compressor (LPC) rotor 
1 (R1) and, depending on the results of the inspections, replacement of 
the LPC. AD 2020-07-02 requires the removal from service of certain 
electronic engine control (EEC) full authority digital electronic 
control (FADEC) software and the installation of a software version 
eligible for installation. Since the FAA issued AD 2019-21-11 and AD 
2020-07-02, the manufacturer developed a new version of EEC FADEC 
software, which terminates the need for repetitive BSIs of the LPC R1. 
This proposed AD would continue to require repetitive BSIs of certain 
LPC R1s until replacement of EEC FADEC software with the updated 
software. This proposed AD would require a BSI after installation of 
the updated EEC FADEC software if certain Onboard Maintenance Message 
fault codes are displayed and meet specified criteria. The FAA is 
proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

DATES: The FAA must receive comments on this proposed AD by May 10, 
2021.

ADDRESSES: You may send comments, using the procedures found in 14 CFR 
11.43 and 11.45, by any of the following methods:

Background

    The FAA issued AD 2019-21-11, Amendment 39-19777 (84 FR 57813, 
October 29, 2019), (AD 2019-21-11) for certain PW PW1519G, PW1521G, 
PW1521GA, PW1524G, PW1525G, PW1521G-3, PW1524G-3, PW1525G-3, PW1919G, 
PW1921G, PW1922G, PW1923G, and PW1923G-A model turbofan engines. AD 
2019-21-11 was prompted by an in-flight failure and additional findings 
of cracks in the LPC R1. AD 2019-21-11 requires initial and repetitive 
BSI of the LPC R1 and, depending on the results of the BSIs, 
replacement of the LPC. The agency issued AD 2019-21-11 to prevent 
failure of the LPC R1.
    The FAA issued AD 2020-07-02, Amendment 39-21106 (85 FR 17742, 
March 31, 2020), (AD 2020-07-02), for all PW PW1519G, PW1521G, PW1521G-
3, PW1521GA, PW1524G, PW1524G33, PW1525G, and PW1525G33 model turbofan 
engines. AD 2020-07-02 was prompted by reports of four in-flight 
shutdowns due to failure of the LPC R1 and by subsequent findings of 
cracked LPC R1s during inspections. AD 2020-07-02 requires the removal 
from service of certain EEC FADEC software and the installation of a 
software version eligible for installation. The agency issued AD 2020-
07-02 to prevent failure of the LPC R1.

Actions Since AD 2019-21-11 and AD 2020-07-02 Were Issued

    Since the FAA issued AD 2019-21-11 and AD 2020-07-02, the 
manufacturer performed further root cause analysis of the LPC R1 
failures and determined the need to update the EEC FADEC software to 
automate rotor speed management and limit the maximum climb and maximum 
continuous thrust ratings.

FAA's Determination

    The FAA is issuing this NPRM after determining that the unsafe 
condition described previously is likely to exist or develop on other 
products of the same type design.

Proposed AD Requirements in This NPRM

    This proposed AD would retain certain requirements of AD 2019-21-11 
and none of the requirements of AD 2020-07-02. This proposed AD would 
continue to require a BSI of certain LPC R1s for damage and cracks and, 
depending on the results of the BSI, replacement of the LPC R1. This 
proposed AD would continue to require repetitive BSIs of certain LPC 
R1s until replacement of the EEC FADEC software with the updated 
software. This proposed AD would also require a BSI of the LPC R1 after 
installation of the updated EEC FADEC software if certain Onboard 
Maintenance Message fault codes are displayed and meet specified 
criteria.

Interim Action

    The FAA considers that this proposed AD would be an interim action. 
If final corrective action is later identified, the FAA might consider 
additional rulemaking.

Costs of Compliance

    The FAA estimates that this AD, if adopted as proposed, would 
affect 94 engines installed on airplanes of U.S. registry.
    The FAA estimates the following costs to comply with this proposed 
AD:

    The FAA has included all known costs in its cost estimate. 
According to the manufacturer, however, some of the costs of this 
proposed AD may be covered under warranty, thereby reducing the cost 
impact on affected individuals.

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

    The FAA determined that this proposed AD would not have federalism 
implications under Executive Order 13132. This proposed AD would 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 the proposed 
regulation:
    (1) Is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under Executive 
Order 12866,
    (2) Would not affect intrastate aviation in Alaska, and
    (3) Would not have a significant economic impact, positive or 
negative, on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria 
of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

the LPC R1, damage to the engine, damage to the airplane, and loss 
of control of the airplane.

(f) Compliance

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

(g) Required Actions

    (1) Except for those model turbofan engines identified in 
paragraph (g)(2) of this AD, perform a borescope inspection (BSI) of 
the LPC R1 for damage and cracks as follows:
    (i) For engines that have accumulated fewer than 300 flight 
cycles since new (CSN), perform a BSI within 50 flight cycles (FCs) 
from October 29, 2019 (the effective date of AD 2019-19-11), or 
before further flight, whichever occurs later.
    (ii) For engines that have accumulated fewer than 300 FCs since 
installation of V2.11.7 or V2.11.8 electronic engine control (EEC) 
full authority digital electronic control (FADEC) software, perform 
a BSI within 50 FCs from October 29, 2019, or before further flight, 
whichever occurs later.
    (iii) Thereafter, at intervals not to exceed 50 FCs until the 
engine accumulates 300 flight CSN or accumulates 300 FCs since the 
installation of V2.11.7 or V2.11.8 EEC FADEC software, whichever 
occurs later, repeat the BSI for damage and cracks.
    (iv) Perform the BSI required by paragraphs (g)(1)(i) through 
(iii) of this AD at the following LPC R1 locations:
    (A) The blade tip;
    (B) The leading edge;
    (C) The leading edge fillet to rotor platform radius; and
    (D) The airfoil convex side root fillet to rotor platform 
radius.
    (2) For any affected PW model turbofan engine installed as a 
``zero time spare,'' except for PW1519G, PW1521GA, PW1919G, and 
PW1922G model turbofan engines, within 15 FCs from the effective 
date of this AD, and thereafter at intervals not to exceed 15 FCs 
until the engine accumulates 300 flight CSN, perform a BSI of the 
LPC R1 for damage and cracks at the locations in paragraph 
(g)(1)(iv) of this AD.
    (3) Based on the results of the BSIs required by paragraphs 
(g)(1) and (2) of this AD, before further flight, remove and replace 
the LPC R1 if:
    (i) There is damage on an LPC R1 that exceeds serviceable 
limits; or
    (ii) Any crack in the LPC R1 exists.
