The purpose of these notices is to give interested persons an opportunity to participate in the rule making prior to the adoption of the final rules. DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION Federal Aviation Administration 14 CFR Part 39 [Docket No. FAA–2024–1483; Project Identifier MCAI–2023–01094–T] RIN 2120–AA64 Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT. ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). AGENCY: The FAA proposes to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2021–10–02, which applies to all Bombardier, Inc., Model BD–700–1A10 and BD–700–1A11 airplanes. AD 2021– 10–02 requires repetitive general visual inspections of the left- and right-hand elevator torque tube bearings for any sand, dust, or corrosion; repetitive functional tests of the elevator control system; and replacement of the elevator torque tube bearings if necessary. Since the FAA issued AD 2021–10–02, the FAA has determined that a new airworthiness limitation is necessary. This proposed AD would continue to require certain actions in AD 2021–10– 02 and require revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate new airworthiness limitations. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products. DATES: The FAA must receive comments on this NPRM by July 29, 2024.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FAA issued AD 2021–10–02, Amendment 39–21535 (86 FR 33088, June 24, 2021) (AD 2021–10–02), for all Bombardier, Inc., Model BD–700–1A10 and BD–700–1A11 airplanes. AD 2021– 10–02 was prompted by an MCAI originated by Transport Canada, which is the aviation authority for Canada. Transport Canada issued AD CF–2020– 29, dated August 21, 2020 (Transport Canada AD CF–2020–29), to correct an unsafe condition. AD 2021–10–02 requires repetitive general visual inspections of the leftand right-hand elevator torque tube bearings for any sand, dust, or corrosion; repetitive functional tests of the elevator control system; and replacement of the elevator torque tube bearings if necessary. The FAA issued AD 2021–10–02 to address sand contamination and corrosion of the elevator torque tube bearings, which could lead to binding or seizure of the bearings, and potentially lead to a Comments Invited The FAA invites you to send any written relevant data, views, or arguments about this proposal. Send your comments to an address listed under ADDRESSES. Include ‘‘Docket No. FAA–2024–1483; Project Identifier MCAI–2023–01094–T’’ at the beginning of your comments. The most helpful comments reference a specific portion of the proposal, explain the reason for any recommended change, and include supporting data. The FAA will consider all comments received by the closing date and may amend the proposal because of those comments.

The FAA ddrumheller on DSK120RN23PROD with PROPOSALS1 reduction in or loss of airplane pitch control. 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 Requirements of This NPRM This proposed AD would retain certain requirements of AD 2021–10–02. This proposed AD would remove airplanes from the applicability, remove the reporting requirement, and provide credit for certain actions. This proposed AD would also require revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate a new airworthiness limitation. This proposed AD would require revisions to certain operator maintenance documents to include new actions (e.g., inspections). Compliance with these actions is required by 14 CFR 91.403(c). For airplanes that have been previously modified, altered, or repaired in the areas addressed by this proposed AD, the operator may not be able to accomplish the actions described in the revisions. In this situation, to comply with 14 CFR 91.403(c), the operator must request approval for an alternative method of compliance according to paragraph (l)(1) of this proposed AD. Costs of Compliance The FAA estimates that this AD, if adopted as proposed, would affect 461 airplanes of U.S. registry. The FAA estimates the following costs to comply with this proposed AD: The FAA has determined that revising the maintenance or inspection program takes an average of 90 work-hours 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). The FAA estimates the total cost per operator for the new proposed actions to be $7,650 (90 work-hours × $85 per work-hour). ESTIMATED COSTS FOR REQUIRED ACTIONS Action Retained actions from AD 2021–10–02. Labor cost Parts cost 22 work-hours × $85 per hour = $1,870. Up to $4 (for four cotter pins) *. Cost per product Up to $1,874 ..................... * Parts cost include replacement parts where necessary.

The FAA has no way of determining the number of aircraft that might need this on-condition action: ESTIMATED COSTS OF ON-CONDITION ACTIONS Labor cost Parts cost Cost per product 5 work-hours × $85 per hour = $425 ............................................................. $271 (for four bearings) ......................................... $696 The FAA has included all known costs in its cost estimate. According to the manufacturer, however, some or all of the costs of this proposed AD may be covered under warranty, thereby reducing the cost impact on affected operators. (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. 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. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39 ddrumheller on DSK120RN23PROD with PROPOSALS1 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 this proposed regulation: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866, Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by reference, Safety. The Proposed Amendment Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the FAA proposes to amend 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. § 39.13 [Amended] 2. The FAA amends § 39.13 by: a. Removing Airworthiness Directive 2021–10–02, Amendment 39–21535 (86 FR 33088, June 24, 2021); and ■ b. Adding the following new airworthiness directive: ■ ■ Bombardier, Inc.: Docket No. FAA–2024– 1483; Project Identifier MCAI–2023– 01094–T. (a) Comments Due Date The FAA must receive comments on this airworthiness directive (AD) by July 29, 2024. (b) Affected ADs This AD replaces AD 2021–10–02, Amendment 39–21535 (86 FR 33088, June 24, 2021) (AD 2021–10–02). (c) Applicability This AD applies to Bombardier, Inc., Model BD–700–1A10, and –1A11 airplanes, certificated in any category, having serial number 9002 through 60081 inclusive. (d) Subject Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 05, Time Limits/Maintenance Checks; 55, Flight Controls. (e) Reason This AD was prompted by a determination that new airworthiness limitations are necessary. The FAA is issuing this AD to address sand contamination and corrosion of the elevator torque tube bearings, which could lead to binding or seizure of the bearings, and potentially lead to a reduction in or loss of airplane pitch control. (f) Compliance Comply with this AD within the compliance times specified, unless already done. (g) Retained Inspection and Corrective Actions, With Change This paragraph restates the requirements of paragraph (g) of AD 2021–10–02, with change to Figure 1 to paragraph (g), which identifies the airplane marketing designation instead of the serial number range. Within 36 months from July 29, 2021 (the effective date of AD 2021–10–02) or within 63 months from the date of airplane manufacture, as identified on the identification plate of the airplane, whichever occurs later: Do a general visual inspection of the left- and right-hand elevator torque tube bearings for any sand, dust, or corrosion; perform a functional test of the elevator control system; and do all applicable corrective actions; in accordance with the Accomplishment Instructions of paragraphs 2.B., 2.C., and 2.D. of the applicable service information specified in figure 1 to paragraph (g) of this AD. Applicable corrective actions must be done before further flight. Repeat the general visual inspection and functional test thereafter at intervals not to exceed 63 months. Accomplishing the revision of the existing maintenance or inspection program required by paragraph (i) of this AD terminates the requirements of this paragraph.

RIN 2120-AA64


Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

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

SUMMARY: The FAA proposes to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 
2021-10-02, which applies to all Bombardier, Inc., Model BD-700-1A10 
and BD-700-1A11 airplanes. AD 2021-10-02 requires repetitive general 
visual inspections of the left- and right-hand elevator torque tube 
bearings for any sand, dust, or corrosion; repetitive functional tests 
of the elevator control system; and replacement of the elevator torque 
tube bearings if necessary. Since the FAA issued AD 2021-10-02, the FAA 
has determined that a new airworthiness limitation is necessary. This 
proposed AD would continue to require certain actions in AD 2021-10-02 
and require revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as 
applicable, to incorporate new airworthiness limitations. The FAA is 
proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

DATES: The FAA must receive comments on this NPRM by July 29, 2024.

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

Confidential Business Information

    CBI is commercial or financial information that is both customarily 
and actually treated as private by its owner. Under the Freedom of 
Information Act (FOIA) (5 U.S.C. 552), CBI is exempt from public 
disclosure. If your comments responsive to this NPRM contain commercial 
or financial information that is customarily treated as private, that 
you actually treat as private, and that is relevant or responsive to 
this NPRM, it is important that you clearly designate the submitted 
comments as CBI. Please mark each page of your submission containing 
CBI as ``PROPIN.'' The FAA will treat such marked submissions as 
confidential under the FOIA, and they will not be placed in the public 
docket of this NPRM. Submissions containing CBI should be sent to 
Gabriel Kim, Aviation Safety Engineer, FAA, 1600 Stewart Avenue, Suite 
410, Westbury, NY 11590; telephone 516-228-7300; email [email protected]. Any commentary that the FAA receives that is not 
specifically designated as CBI will be placed in the public docket for 
this rulemaking.

Background

    The FAA issued AD 2021-10-02, Amendment 39-21535 (86 FR 33088, June 
24, 2021) (AD 2021-10-02), for all Bombardier, Inc., Model BD-700-1A10 
and BD-700-1A11 airplanes. AD 2021-10-02 was prompted by an MCAI 
originated by Transport Canada, which is the aviation authority for 
Canada. Transport Canada issued AD CF-2020-29, dated August 21, 2020 
(Transport Canada AD CF-2020-29), to correct an unsafe condition.
    AD 2021-10-02 requires repetitive general visual inspections of the 
left- and right-hand elevator torque tube bearings for any sand, dust, 
or corrosion; repetitive functional tests of the elevator control 
system; and replacement of the elevator torque tube bearings if 
necessary. The FAA issued AD 2021-10-02 to address sand contamination 
and corrosion of the elevator torque tube bearings, which could lead to 
binding or seizure of the bearings, and potentially lead to a

[[Page 49820]]

reduction in or loss of airplane pitch control.

Actions Since AD 2021-10-02 Was Issued

    Since the FAA issued AD 2021-10-02, Transport Canada superseded 
Transport Canada CF-2020-29, and issued Transport Canada AD CF-2020-
29R1, dated October 20, 2023 (Transport Canada AD CF-2020-29R1) 
(referred to after this as the MCAI) to correct an unsafe condition on 
certain Bombardier, Inc., Model BD-700-1A10 and BD-700-1A11 airplanes. 
The MCAI states that data collected from the reports mandated by 
Transport Canada AD CF-2020-29 was used to validate inspection 
intervals, which have been integrated into new certification 
maintenance requirement (CMR) tasks. The MCAI also states that 
Transport Canada AD CF-2020-29R1 mandates the new CMR tasks while 
giving credit for initial and repetitive inspections already performed, 
revises the applicability to exclude airplanes delivered with the new 
CMRs, and removes the reporting requirement.
    The FAA is proposing this AD to address sand contamination and 
corrosion of the elevator torque tube bearings, which could lead to 
binding or seizure of the bearings, and potentially lead to a reduction 
in or loss of airplane pitch control.
    You may examine the MCAI in the AD docket at regulations.gov under 
Docket No. FAA-2024-1483.

    This service information 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.

FAA's Determination

    This product has been approved by the aviation authority of another 
country, and is approved for operation in the United States. Pursuant 
to the FAA's bilateral agreement with this State of Design Authority, 
it has notified the FAA of the unsafe condition described in the MCAI 
and service information referenced above. 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 Requirements of This NPRM

    This proposed AD would retain certain requirements of AD 2021-10-
02. This proposed AD would remove airplanes from the applicability, 
remove the reporting requirement, and provide credit for certain 
actions. This proposed AD would also require revising the existing 
maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to incorporate a new 
airworthiness limitation.
    This proposed AD would require revisions to certain operator 
maintenance documents to include new actions (e.g., inspections). 
Compliance with these actions is required by 14 CFR 91.403(c). For 
airplanes that have been previously modified, altered, or repaired in 
the areas addressed by this proposed AD, the operator may not be able 
to accomplish the actions described in the revisions. In this 
situation, to comply with 14 CFR 91.403(c), the operator must request 
approval for an alternative method of compliance according to paragraph 
(l)(1) of this proposed AD.

Costs of Compliance

    The FAA estimates that this AD, if adopted as proposed, would 
affect 461 airplanes of U.S. registry. The FAA estimates the following 
costs to comply with this proposed AD:
    The FAA has determined that revising the maintenance or inspection 
program takes an average of 90 work-hours 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 x $85 per work-hour).
    The FAA estimates the total cost per operator for the new proposed 
actions to be $7,650 (90 work-hours x $85 per work-hour).

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
* Parts cost include replacement parts where necessary.


[[Page 49821]]

    The FAA estimates the following costs to do any necessary on-
condition actions that would be required based on the results of any 
required actions. The FAA has no way of determining the number of 
aircraft that might need this on-condition action:

                 Estimated Costs of On-Condition Actions
------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                             Cost per
            Labor cost                  Parts cost           product
------------------------------------------------------------------------
5 work-hours x $85 per hour =      $271 (for four                  $696
 $425.                              bearings).
------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

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 this 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.

List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39

    Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by 
reference, Safety.

The Proposed Amendment

    Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the 
Administrator, the FAA proposes to amend 14 CFR part 39 as follows:

PART 39--AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES

0
1. The authority citation for part 39 continues to read as follows:

    Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701.


Sec.  39.13  [Amended]

0
2. The FAA amends Sec.  39.13 by:
0
a. Removing Airworthiness Directive 2021-10-02, Amendment 39-21535 (86 
FR 33088, June 24, 2021); and
0
b. Adding the following new airworthiness directive:

Bombardier, Inc.: Docket No. FAA-2024-1483; Project Identifier MCAI-
2023-01094-T.

(a) Comments Due Date

    The FAA must receive comments on this airworthiness directive 
(AD) by July 29, 2024.

(b) Affected ADs

    This AD replaces AD 2021-10-02, Amendment 39-21535 (86 FR 33088, 
June 24, 2021) (AD 2021-10-02).

(c) Applicability

    This AD applies to Bombardier, Inc., Model BD-700-1A10, and -
1A11 airplanes, certificated in any category, having serial number 
9002 through 60081 inclusive.

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 05, Time Limits/
Maintenance Checks; 55, Flight Controls.

(e) Reason

    This AD was prompted by a determination that new airworthiness 
limitations are necessary. The FAA is issuing this AD to address 
sand contamination and corrosion of the elevator torque tube 
bearings, which could lead to binding or seizure of the bearings, 
and potentially lead to a reduction in or loss of airplane pitch 
control.

(f) Compliance

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

(g) Retained Inspection and Corrective Actions, With Change

    This paragraph restates the requirements of paragraph (g) of AD 
2021-10-02, with change to Figure 1 to paragraph (g), which 
identifies the airplane marketing designation instead of the serial 
number range. Within 36 months from July 29, 2021 (the effective 
date of AD 2021-10-02) or within 63 months from the date of airplane 
manufacture, as identified on the identification plate of the 
airplane, whichever occurs later: Do a general visual inspection of 
the left- and right-hand elevator torque tube bearings for any sand, 
dust, or corrosion; perform a functional test of the elevator 
control system; and do all applicable corrective actions; in 
accordance with the Accomplishment Instructions of paragraphs 2.B., 
2.C., and 2.D. of the applicable service information specified in 
figure 1 to paragraph (g) of this AD. Applicable corrective actions 
must be done before further flight. Repeat the general visual 
inspection and functional test thereafter at intervals not to exceed 
63 months. Accomplishing the revision of the existing maintenance or 
inspection program required by paragraph (i) of this AD terminates 
the requirements of this paragraph.

(h) No Reporting Requirement

    Although the service information identified in Figure 1 to 
paragraph (g) of this AD specifies to submit certain information to 
the manufacturer, this AD does not include that requirement.

(i) New Revision of the Existing Maintenance or Inspection Program

    Within 30 days after the effective date of this AD, revise the 
existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to 
incorporate the information specified in the applicable temporary 
revision identified in figure 2 to paragraph (i) of this AD. The 
initial compliance time for doing the tasks is at the time specified 
in the applicable temporary revision identified in figure 2 to 
paragraph (i) of this AD, or within 90 days after the effective date 
of this AD, whichever occurs later. Accomplishing the revision of 
the existing maintenance or inspection program required by this 
paragraph terminates the actions required by paragraph (g) of this
