Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of Transportation (DOT).

ACTION:

Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

SUMMARY:

The FAA proposes to supersede an existing airworthiness directive (AD) that applies to certain transport category airplanes identified above. The existing AD currently requires modification of the reinforced flight deck door and other actions related to the reinforced flight deck door. Those other actions include modifying the door, inspecting and modifying wiring in the area, and revising the maintenance program to require more frequent testing of the decompression panels of the flight deck door. This proposed AD would add airplanes to the existing requirement of a one-time inspection for chafing of wire bundles in the area of the flight deck door and corrective actions if necessary. This proposed AD would remove certain airplanes from the applicability. This proposed AD results from a report of smoke and fumes in the cockpit of a Model 737-300 series airplane. We are proposing this AD to prevent inadvertent release of the decompression latch and consequent opening of the decompression panel in the flight deck door, or penetration of the flight deck door by smoke or shrapnel, any of which could result in injury to the airplane flightcrew. We are also proposing this AD to detect and correct wire chafing, which could result in arcing, fire, and/or reduced controllability of the airplane.

DATES:

We must receive comments on this proposed AD by March 5, 2007.

Discussion

On May 26, 2005, we issued AD 2005-12-05, amendment 39-14121 (70 FR 37152, June 28, 2005). That AD applies to certain Boeing Model 737-200, -300, -400, -500, -600, -700, -800, and -900 series airplanes; Boeing Model 757-200 and -300 series airplanes; and McDonnell Douglas Model DC-10-10, DC-10-10F, DC-10-30, DC-10-30F, DC-10-40, MD-10-10F, MD-10-30F, MD-11, and MD-11F airplanes. That AD requires modification of the reinforced flight deck door and other actions related to the reinforced flight deck door. Those other actions include modifying the door, inspecting and modifying wiring in the area, and revising the maintenance program to require more frequent testing of the decompression panels of the flight deck door. That AD resulted from reports of discrepancies with the reinforced flight deck door. We issued that AD to prevent inadvertent release of the decompression latch and consequent opening of the decompression panel in the flight deck door, or penetration of the flight deck door by smoke or shrapnel, any of which could result in injury to the airplane flightcrew. That AD also requires finding and fixing wire chafing, which could result in arcing, fire, and/or reduced controllability of the airplane.

Actions Since Existing AD Was Issued

Since we issued AD 2005-12-05, we have received a report indicating that a Boeing Model 737-300 series airplane was forced to turn back to the airport ten minutes after departure, due to smoke and fumes in the cockpit of the airplane. Investigation revealed that the incident was caused by a certain wire, aft of the overhead P5 panel of the cockpit, chafing against a bracket for a certain plug disconnect, which had been installed during modification of the flight deck door lock in accordance with Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) ST01335LA. Chafing of wiring in the area of the flight deck door, if not corrected, could result in arcing, fire, and/or reduced controllability of the airplane. Previously, we addressed this unsafe condition in paragraph (m)(2) of AD 2005-12-05 for Model 737-200 series airplanes equipped with flight deck door assembly part number (P/N) B221001. That paragraph refers to C&D Aerospace Alert Service Bulletin B221001-52A02, dated November 5, 2002, as the appropriate source of service information for doing a general visual inspection for chafing of wire bundles in the area of the flight deck door and doing corrective actions if necessary. (Boeing Model 737-300, -400, and -500 series airplanes are included in the effectivity of C&D Aerospace Alert Service Bulletin B221001-52A02.) We have determined that the same unsafe condition also exists on Model 737-300, -400, and -500 series airplanes equipped with reinforced flight deck door assembly P/N B221001. Since Model 737-300, -400, and -500 series airplanes were included in the applicability of AD 2005-12-05, this proposed AD does not expand the applicability. Rather, this proposed AD would require additional action on those airplanes to adequately address the unsafe condition.

We inadvertently included McDonnell Douglas Model MD-10-10F airplanes in the applicability of AD 2005-12-05. The affected reinforced flight deck doors are not approved for installation on Model MD-10-10F airplanes under any STC. Therefore, we have removed those airplanes from the applicability of this proposed AD.

FAA's Determination and Requirements of the Proposed AD

We have evaluated all pertinent information and identified an unsafe condition that is likely to develop on other products of the same type design. For this reason, we are proposing this AD, which would supersede AD 2005-12-05 and would retain the requirements of the existing AD. For Model 737-300, -400, and -500 series airplanes, this proposed AD would also require accomplishing the actions specified in C&D Aerospace Alert Service Bulletin B221001-52A02, dated November 5, 2002, except as discussed under “Difference Between the Proposed AD and Service Bulletin.”

Difference Between the Proposed AD and Service Bulletin

Although C&D Aerospace Alert Service Bulletin B221001-52A02 describes procedures for installing a placard to show that the service bulletin has been accomplished, this proposed AD does not require that action. We have revised paragraph (m)(2) of the proposed AD to exclude that action.

Costs of Compliance

There are about 3,423 airplanes of the affected design in the worldwide fleet. For the new proposed action, there are about 1,047 Model 737-300, -400, and -500 series airplanes of the affected design in the worldwide fleet. The following table provides the estimated costs, at an average labor rate of $80 per work hour, for U.S. operators to comply with this proposed AD. Start Printed Page 2477

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.

We are 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

We have 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 that the proposed regulation:

1. Is not a “significant regulatory action” under Executive Order 12866;

2. Is not a “significant rule” under the 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.

We prepared a regulatory evaluation of the estimated costs to comply with this proposed AD and placed it in the AD docket. See the ADDRESSES section for a location to examine the regulatory evaluation.
