The authority citation for part 39 continues to read as follows: ■ Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701. § 39.13 [Amended] 2. The FAA amends § 39.13 by: a. Removing Airworthiness Directive 2020–21–01, Amendment 39–21274 (85 FR 63440, October 8, 2020); and ■ b. Adding the following new airworthiness directive: ■ ■ Airbus Helicopters: Docket No. FAA–2021– 0839; Project Identifier MCAI–2020– 01697–R. (a) Comments Due Date The FAA must receive comments on this airworthiness directive (AD) action by November 15, 2021. (b) Affected ADs This AD replaces AD 2020–21–01, Amendment 39–21274 (85 FR 63440, October 8, 2020) (AD 2020–21–01). (c) Applicability This AD applies to the Airbus Helicopters model helicopters, certificated in any category, as identified in paragraphs (c)(1) through (3) of this AD.
