Federal Aviation Administration, DOT.
Final rule; rescission.
This amendment rescinds an existing airworthiness directive (AD), applicable to certain Raytheon Model BAe.125 Series 1000A Airplanes and Model Hawker 1000 airplanes. That AD currently requires inspections of the thrust reverser system for integrity, and correction of any discrepancy found. The requirements of that AD were intended to prevent a significant reduction in the controllability of the airplane due to an in-flight deployment of a thrust reverser. Since the issuance of that AD, the FAA has issued a separate AD that requires the accomplishment of modifications that terminate the requirements of the existing AD.

A proposal to amend part 39 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 39) to rescind an airworthiness directive (AD) that is applicable to certain Raytheon Model BAe.125 Series 1000A and Hawker 1000 series airplanes was published in the Federal Register on September 10, 1999 (64 FR 49112). That action proposed the rescission of AD 94-09-11, amendment 39-8900 (59 FR 22125, April 29, 1994), in order to prevent operators from performing an unnecessary action.
Interested persons have been afforded an opportunity to participate in the making of this amendment. No comments were received in response to the proposal.
After careful review of the available data, the FAA has determined that air safety and the public interest require the rescission of the rule as proposed, with the exception of the change to applicability.
Explanation of Change to Applicability
The FAA has revised the applicability of this final rule to identify model designations as published in the most recent type certificate data sheet for the affected models.
The regulations adopted herein 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. Therefore, it is determined that this final rule does not have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132.
For the reasons discussed above, I certify that this action (1) is not a “significant regulatory action” under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a “significant rule” under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034, February 26, 1979); 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. A final evaluation has been prepared for this action and it is contained in the Rules Docket. A copy of it may be obtained from the Rules Docket at the location provided under the caption ADDRESSES.Start List of Subjects
