[FR Doc. 2022–04266 Filed 2–28–22; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4810–AM–P DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Aviation Administration 14 CFR Part 39 [Docket No. FAA–2021–0259; Project Identifier AD–2020–01128–E; Amendment 39–21900; AD 2022–02–03] RIN 2120–AA64 Airworthiness Directives; CFM International, S.A. Turbofan Engines Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT. ACTION: Final rule; correction. AGENCY: The FAA is correcting an airworthiness directive (AD) that published in the Federal Register. The AD applies to CFM International, S.A. CFM56–3 and CFM56–7B model turbofan engines with certain accessory gearbox assembly (AGB) not equipped with a dynamic oil seal assembly in the handcranking pad. As published, the part numbers (P/Ns) listed in paragraph (i)(2)(i) are incorrect. This document corrects that error. In all other respects, the original document remains the same; however, for clarity, the FAA is publishing the entire rule in the Federal Register. DATES: This correction is effective March 22, 2022. The effective date of AD 2022–02–03 remains March 22, 2022.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AD 2022– 02–03, 39–21961 (87 FR 8402, February 15, 2022) (AD 2022–02–03), requires independent inspection to verify reinstallation of the AGB handcranking pad cover after maintenance. AD 2022– 02–03 also requires the replacement of the affected AGB with a part eligible for installation as a terminating action to the inspection requirement. Need for the Correction As published, the P/Ns listed in paragraph (i)(2)(i) of the AD, which defines a part eligible for installation, are incorrect. The P/Ns were incorrectly listed as 340–046–503–0, 340–046–504– 0, and 340–046–505–0. The correct P/Ns are 335–300–103–0, 335–300–105–0, 335–300–106–0, 335–300–107–0, 335– 300–108–0, 335–300–109–0, and 335– 300–110–0. Although no other part of the preamble or regulatory information has been corrected, for clarity, the FAA is publishing the entire rule in the Federal Register. The effective date of this AD remains March 22, 2022. Good Cause for Adoption Without Prior Notice Section 553(b)(3)(B) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 551 et seq.) authorizes agencies to dispense with notice and comment procedures for rules when the agency for ‘‘good cause’’ finds that those procedures are ‘‘impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest.’’ Under this section, an agency, upon finding good cause, may issue a final rule without providing notice and seeking comment prior to issuance. Further, section 553(d) of the APA PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 11289 authorizes agencies to make rules effective in less than thirty days, upon a finding of good cause. The FAA has found that the risk to the flying public justifies foregoing notice and comment prior to adoption of this rule because this action corrects P/Ns that were correctly identified in a notice of proposed rulemaking, which published in the Federal Register on May 3, 2021 (86 FR 23301). Accordingly, notice and opportunity for prior public comment are unnecessary pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b). In addition, the FAA finds that good cause exists pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(d) for making this amendment effective in less than 30 days, for the same reasons the FAA found good cause to forego notice and comment.

Airworthiness Directives; CFM International, S.A. Turbofan 
Engines

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Final rule; correction.

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

SUMMARY: The FAA is correcting an airworthiness directive (AD) that 
published in the Federal Register. The AD applies to CFM International, 
S.A. CFM56-3 and CFM56-7B model turbofan engines with certain accessory 
gearbox assembly (AGB) not equipped with a dynamic oil seal assembly in 
the handcranking pad. As published, the part numbers (P/Ns) listed in 
paragraph (i)(2)(i) are incorrect. This document corrects that error. 
In all other respects, the original document remains the same; however, 
for clarity, the FAA is publishing the entire rule in the Federal 
Register.

DATES: This correction is effective March 22, 2022. The effective date 
of AD 2022-02-03 remains March 22, 2022.

ADDRESSES: For service information identified in this final rule, 
contact CFM International, S.A., Aviation Operations Center, 1 Neumann 
Way, M/D Room 285, Cincinnati, OH 45125; phone: (877) 432-3272; email: 
[email protected]. You may view this service information at the FAA, 
Airworthiness Products Section, Operational Safety Branch, 1200

availability of this material at the FAA, call (817) 222-5110. It is 
also available at https://www.regulations.gov by searching for and 
locating Docket No. FAA-2021-0259.

Examining the AD Docket

    You may examine the AD docket at https://www.regulations.gov by 
searching for and locating Docket No. FAA-2021-0259, or in person at

except Federal holidays. The AD docket contains this final rule, any 
comments received, and other information. The address for Docket 
Operations is U.S. Department of Transportation, Docket Operations M-

ECO Branch, FAA, 1200 District Avenue, Burlington, MA 01803; phone: 
(781) 238-7088; fax: (781) 238-7199; email: [email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AD 2022-02-03, 39-21961 (87 FR 8402, 
February 15, 2022) (AD 2022-02-03), requires independent inspection to 
verify re-installation of the AGB handcranking pad cover after 
maintenance. AD 2022-02-03 also requires the replacement of the 
affected AGB with a part eligible for installation as a terminating 
action to the inspection requirement.

Need for the Correction

    As published, the P/Ns listed in paragraph (i)(2)(i) of the AD, 
which defines a part eligible for installation, are incorrect. The P/Ns 
were incorrectly listed as 340-046-503-0, 340-046-504-0, and 340-046-
505-0. The correct P/Ns are 335-300-103-0, 335-300-105-0, 335-300-106-
0, 335-300-107-0, 335-300-108-0, 335-300-109-0, and 335-300-110-0.
    Although no other part of the preamble or regulatory information 
has been corrected, for clarity, the FAA is publishing the entire rule 
in the Federal Register.
    The effective date of this AD remains March 22, 2022.

Good Cause for Adoption Without Prior Notice

    Section 553(b)(3)(B) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 
U.S.C. 551 et seq.) authorizes agencies to dispense with notice and 
comment procedures for rules when the agency for ``good cause'' finds 
that those procedures are ``impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to 
the public interest.'' Under this section, an agency, upon finding good 
cause, may issue a final rule without providing notice and seeking 
comment prior to issuance. Further, section 553(d) of the APA 
authorizes agencies to make rules effective in less than thirty days, 
upon a finding of good cause.
    The FAA has found that the risk to the flying public justifies 
foregoing notice and comment prior to adoption of this rule because 
this action corrects P/Ns that were correctly identified in a notice of 
proposed rulemaking, which published in the Federal Register on May 3, 
2021 (86 FR 23301). Accordingly, notice and opportunity for prior 
public comment are unnecessary pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b).
    In addition, the FAA finds that good cause exists pursuant to 5 
U.S.C. 553(d) for making this amendment effective in less than 30 days, 
for the same reasons the FAA found good cause to forego notice and 
comment.

Accessory Drive.

(e) Unsafe Condition

    This AD was prompted by a dual engine loss of oil event and 42 
prior events of total loss of engine oil during flight. The FAA is 
issuing this AD to prevent loss of engine oil while in flight. The 
unsafe condition, if not addressed, could result in engine failure, 
loss of thrust control, reduced control of the aircraft, and damage 
to the airplane.

(f) Compliance

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

(g) Required Actions

    (1) After the effective date of this AD, after any maintenance 
that involves removal and re-installation of the AGB handcranking 
pad cover, perform an independent inspection to verify re-
installation of the AGB handcranking pad cover; or
    (2) Prior to the next removal of the AGB handcranking pad cover 
from the engine, insert the independent inspection required by 
paragraph (g)(1) of this AD as a required inspection item in the 
existing approved continuous airworthiness maintenance program for 
the aircraft.

(h) Mandatory Terminating Action

    As a mandatory terminating action to the requirements of 
paragraph (g) of this AD:
    (1) For affected CFM56-3, CFM56-3B, and CFM56-3C model turbofan 
engines, at the next engine shop visit, or before December 31, 2026, 
whichever occurs first after the effective date of this AD, replace
