AGENCY: The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Airbus Canada Limited Partnership Model BD–500–1A10 and BD–500– 1A11 airplanes. This AD was prompted by a report that some tie-rod assemblies may have been overtightened during the installation of interior monuments (such as galleys, lavatories, and forward stowage or wardrobes). This AD requires adjusting the tie-rod assemblies, as specified in a Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) AD, which is incorporated by reference.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The TCCA, which is the aviation authority for Canada, has issued TCCA AD CF–2021–25, dated July 22, 2021 (TCCA AD CF–2021–25) (also referred to as the MCAI), to correct an unsafe condition for certain Airbus Canada Limited Partnership Model BD–500– 1A10 and BD–500–1A11 airplanes. PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 The FAA issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 by adding an AD that would apply to certain Airbus Canada Limited Partnership Model BD–500–1A10 and BD–500–1A11 airplanes. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on December 17, 2021 (86 FR 71589). The NPRM was prompted by a report that some tie-rod assemblies may have been overtightened during the installation of interior monuments (such as galleys, lavatories, and forward stowage or wardrobes). The NPRM proposed to require adjusting the tie-rod assemblies, as specified in TCCA AD CF–2021–25. The FAA is issuing this AD to address overtightened (pre-loaded) tie-rods that induce unwanted stress in a monument and may cause the monument to become unconstrained in an emergency landing, potentially blocking exits or injuring occupants. See the MCAI for additional background information. Discussion of Final Airworthiness Directive Comments 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 requires adopting this AD as proposed. Except for minor editorial changes, this AD is adopted as proposed in the NPRM. None of the changes will increase the economic burden on any operator. Accordingly, the FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products. Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51 TCCA AD CF–2021–25 specifies procedures for, among other actions, adjustment of the affected tie-rod assemblies to remove any pre-load. 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. Costs of Compliance The FAA estimates that this AD affects 21 airplanes of U.S. registry.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background EASA, which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the European Union, has issued EASA AD 2021–0181, dated July 30, 2021 (EASA AD 2021– 0181) (also referred to as the MCAI), to correct an unsafe condition for all Airbus SAS Model A300 B2–1C, B2K– 3C, B2–203, B4–2C, B4–103, and B4– 203 airplanes. The FAA issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 by adding an AD that would apply to all Airbus SAS Model A300 B2–1C, B2K–3C, B2–203, B4–2C, B4– 103, and B4–203 airplanes. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on December 17, 2021 (86 FR 71592). The NPRM was prompted by a determination that new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations related to pylon maintenance are necessary. The NPRM proposed to require revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 applicable, to incorporate new or more restrictive airworthiness limitations for pylon maintenance, as specified in EASA AD 2021–0181. The FAA is issuing this AD to address fatigue cracking, damage, and corrosion in principal structural elements; such fatigue cracking, damage, and corrosion could result in reduced structural integrity of the airplane. See the MCAI for additional background information. Discussion of Final Airworthiness Directive Comments 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 requires adopting this AD as proposed. Except for minor editorial changes, this AD is adopted as proposed in the NPRM. None of the changes will increase the economic burden on any operator. Accordingly, the FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

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. Costs of Compliance The FAA estimates that this AD affects 1 airplane of U.S. registry. The FAA estimates the following costs to comply with this AD: The FAA has determined that revising the existing maintenance or inspection program takes an average of 90 workhours per operator, although the agency recognizes that this number may vary from operator to operator. Since operators incorporate maintenance or inspection program changes for their affected fleet(s), the FAA has determined that a per-operator estimate is more accurate than a per-airplane estimate. Therefore, the agency estimates the average total cost per operator to be $7,650 (90 work-hours × $85 per work-hour). 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: E:\FR\FM\28FER1.SGM 28FER1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The TCCA, which is the aviation authority for Canada, has issued 
TCCA AD CF-2021-25, dated July 22, 2021 (TCCA AD CF-2021-25) (also 
referred to as the MCAI), to correct an unsafe condition for certain 
Airbus Canada Limited Partnership Model BD-500-1A10 and BD-500-1A11 
airplanes.
    The FAA issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 
CFR part 39 by adding an AD that would apply to certain Airbus Canada 
Limited Partnership Model BD-500-1A10 and BD-500-1A11 airplanes. The 
NPRM published in the Federal Register on December 17, 2021 (86 FR 
71589). The NPRM was prompted by a report that some tie-rod assemblies 
may have been overtightened during the installation of interior 
monuments (such as galleys, lavatories, and forward stowage or 
wardrobes). The NPRM proposed to require adjusting the tie-rod 
assemblies, as specified in TCCA AD CF-2021-25.
    The FAA is issuing this AD to address overtightened (pre-loaded) 
tie-rods that induce unwanted stress in a monument and may cause the 
monument to become unconstrained in an emergency landing, potentially 
blocking exits or injuring occupants. See the MCAI for additional 
background information.

Discussion of Final Airworthiness Directive

Comments

    The FAA received no comments on the NPRM or on the determination of 
the cost to the public.

Conclusion

requires adopting this AD as proposed. Except for minor editorial 
changes, this AD is adopted as proposed in the NPRM. None of the 
changes will increase the economic burden on any operator. Accordingly, 
the FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these 
products.

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.

(CSALP); Bombardier, Inc.) Model BD-500-1A10 and BD-500-1A11 
airplanes, certificated in any category, as identified in Transport 
Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) AD CF-2021-25, dated July 22, 2021 
(TCCA AD CF-2021-25).

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 25, Equipment/
Furnishings.

(e) Unsafe Condition

    This AD was prompted by a report that some tie-rod assemblies 
may have been overtightened during the installation of interior 
monuments (such as those for the galleys, lavatories, and forward 
stowage or wardrobes). The FAA is issuing this AD to address over-
tightened (pre-loaded) tie-rods that induce unwanted stress in the 
monument and may cause the monument to become unconstrained in an 
emergency landing, potentially blocking exits or injuring occupants.

(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, TCCA AD CF-2021-25.

(h) Exceptions to TCCA AD CF-2021-25

    (1) Where TCCA AD CF-2021-25 refers to hours air time, this AD 
requires using flight hours.
    (2) Where TCCA AD CF-2021-25 refers to its effective date, this 
AD requires using the effective date of this AD.
    (3) The inspection specified in the Corrective Actions paragraph 
of TCCA AD CF-2021-25 does not apply to this AD.
