Start Preamble

AGENCY:

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

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as:

* * * * *

The aim of * * * [Special Federal Aviation Regulation (SFAR) 88] is to require all holders of type certificates * * * to carry out a definition review against explosion hazards.

The unsafe condition is the potential of ignition sources inside fuel tanks, which, in combination with flammable fuel vapors, could result in fuel tank explosions and consequent loss of the airplane. We are issuing this AD to require actions to correct the unsafe condition on these products.

DATES:

This AD becomes effective January 15, 2009.

The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in this AD as of January 15, 2009.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion

We issued a supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 to include an AD that would apply to the specified products. That supplemental NPRM was published in the Federal Register on June 17, 2008 (73 FR 34228). That supplemental NPRM proposed to correct an unsafe condition for the specified products. The MCAI states:

[T]he FAA published SFAR 88 (Special Federal Aviation Regulation 88).

By mail referenced 04/00/02/07/01-L296 of March 4th, 2002 and 04/00/02/07/03-L024 of February 3rd, 2003 the JAA (Joint Aviation Authorities) recommended to the National Aviation Authorities (NAA) the application of a similar regulation.

The aim of this regulation is to require all holders of type certificates for passenger transport aircraft certified after January 1st, 1958 with a capacity of 30 passengers or more, or a payload of 3,402 kg or more, to carry out a definition review against explosion hazards.

Consequently, the following measures [are] rendered mandatory * * *:

  • [inspection and] replacement [if necessary] of the white P-clips by blue P-clips which are more fuel resistant remove the risks of fuel quantity indicator (FQI) and fuel level sensor system (FLSS) harnesses chafing against the metallic part of the P-clip,
  • Modification of electrical bonding of equipment installed in fuel tanks in order to re-establish the conformity with the design definition by introducing additional bonding leads, electrical bonding points and electrical bonding of a support bracket for a diffuser assembly installed between Rib 1 and Rib 2 on the stringers of the Number 1 bottom skin panel,Start Printed Page 75308
  • Modification of bonding points, installation of additional bonding leads and other modifications of the Additional Center Tank (ACT),
  • Modification to increase the distance between metallic parts on the THS Trim Tank,
  • Installation of a bonding lead between the bonding tags on the Jettison valve actuator and drive assembly.

This new AD supersedes EASA AD 2006-0322, taking over its requirements and:

  • Mandates SB [service bulletin] A330-28-3082 Revision 04 which introduces an additional work for some bonding points which were omitted from the center tank at original issue (action n°2 [paragraph (f)(2) of this AD]);
  • Mandates SB A340-28-4097 Revision 03 which introduces an additional work by addition of electrical bondings omitted from previous revisions (action n°2);
  • Introduces an extension of the required compliance time to perform action n°4 for those aircraft already compliant with AIRBUS AOT 55-03 dated 22 August 1996 (“solution A”), mandated by DGAC [Direction Générale de l'Aviation Civile] AD F-1996-178-049(B) R1 and DGAC AD F-1996-177-038(B) with a compliance time of November 15th, 1996;
  • Refers to the latest revision of certain AIRBUS SBs.

The unsafe condition is the potential of ignition sources inside fuel tanks, which, in combination with flammable fuel vapors, could result in fuel tank explosions and consequent loss of the airplane. You may obtain further information by examining the MCAI in the AD docket.

Explanation of New Service Information

Airbus has issued Mandatory Service Bulletin A330-28-3082, Revision 05, including Appendix 1, dated May 27, 2008. We referred to Revision 04 of that service bulletin, dated August 3, 2007, as the appropriate source of service information for accomplishing certain actions specified in the supplemental NPRM. Revision 05 of the service bulletin was issued to delete information relating to the bonding of a bracket at Stringer 14 between Rib 1 and Rib 2, which is not applicable to the Model A330 airplanes affected by that service bulletin. Revision 05 also includes additional kits and other minor editorial changes. No additional work is required for airplanes modified in accordance with Revision 04.

We have changed Table 1 of this AD to include a reference to Revision 05, in addition to Revision 04, of Airbus Mandatory Service Bulletin A330-28-3082 for defining the applicability of certain paragraphs. We have also changed paragraphs (f)(2)(i) and (f)(2)(iii) of this AD to specify Revision 05 of the service bulletin as the appropriate source of service information for doing the actions in those paragraphs, and we have changed Table 2 of this AD to list Revision 04 of the service bulletin as acceptable for accomplishment of the actions before the effective date of this AD. Finally, we have changed Table 3 of this AD to include Revision 05 of the service bulletin in the list of related service information.

Comments

We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM or on the determination of the cost to the public.

Conclusion

We reviewed the available data and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting the AD with the changes described previously. We determined that these changes will not increase the economic burden on any operator or increase the scope of the AD.

Differences Between This AD and the MCAI or Service Information

We have reviewed the MCAI and related service information and, in general, agree with their substance. But we might have found it necessary to use different words from those in the MCAI to ensure the AD is clear for U.S. operators and is enforceable. In making these changes, we do not intend to differ substantively from the information provided in the MCAI and related service information.

We might also have required different actions in this AD from those in the MCAI in order to follow our FAA policies. Any such differences are highlighted in a NOTE within the AD.

Costs of Compliance

We estimate that this AD will affect 28 products of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it will take about 670 work-hours per product to comply with the basic requirements of this AD. The average labor rate is $80 per work-hour. Required parts will cost about $2,718 per product. Where the service information lists required parts costs that are covered under warranty, we have assumed that there will be no charge for these parts. As we do not control warranty coverage for affected parties, some parties may incur costs higher than estimated here. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this AD to the U.S. operators to be $1,576,904, or $56,318 per product.

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 determined that 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 this AD:

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 AD and placed it in the AD docket.

Examining the AD Docket

You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov; or in person at the Docket Operations office between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. The AD docket contains the NPRM, the regulatory evaluation, any comments received, and other information. The street address for the Docket Operations office (telephone (800) 647-5527) is in the ADDRESSES section. Comments will be available in the AD docket shortly after receipt.

(a) This airworthiness directive (AD) becomes effective January 15, 2009.

Affected ADs

(b) None.

Applicability

(c) This AD applies to all Airbus Model A330, A340-200, and A340-300 airplanes, all certified models, all serial numbers, certificated in any category.

Subject

(d) Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Codes 28: Fuel, and 55: Stabilizers.

Reason

(e) The mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) states:

[T]he FAA published SFAR 88 (Special Federal Aviation Regulation 88).

By mail referenced 04/00/02/07/01-L296 of March 4th, 2002 and 04/00/02/07/03-L024 of February 3rd, 2003, the JAA (Joint Aviation Authorities) recommended to the National Aviation Authorities (NAA) the application of a similar regulation.

The aim of this regulation is to require all holders of type certificates for passenger transport aircraft certified after January 1st, 1958 with a capacity of 30 passengers or more, or a payload of 3,402 kg or more, to carry out a definition review against explosion hazards.

Consequently, the following measures [are] rendered mandatory * * *:

  • [inspection and] replacement [if necessary] of the white P-clips by blue P-clips which are more fuel resistant remove the risks of fuel quantity indicator (FQI) and fuel level sensor system (FLSS) harnesses chafing against the metallic part of the P-clip,
  • Modification of electrical bonding of equipment installed in fuel tanks in order to re-establish the conformity with the design definition by introducing additional bonding leads, electrical bonding points and electrical bonding of a support bracket for a diffuser assembly installed between Rib 1 and Rib 2 on the stringers of the Number 1 bottom skin panel,
  • Modification of bonding points, installation of additional bonding leads and other modifications of the Additional Center Tank (ACT),
  • Modification to increase the distance between metallic parts on the THS (trimmable horizontal stabilizer) Trim Tank,
  • Installation of a bonding lead between the bonding tags on the Jettison valve actuator and drive assembly.

This new AD supersedes EASA AD 2006-0322, taking over its requirements and:

  • Mandates SB [service bulletin] A330-28-3082 Revision 04 which introduces an additional work for some bonding points which were omitted from the center tank at original issue (action n°2 [paragraph (f)(2) of this AD]);
  • Mandates SB A340-28-4097 Revision 03 which introduces an additional work by addition of electrical bondings omitted from previous revisions (action n°2);
  • Introduces an extension of the required compliance time to perform action n°4 for those aircraft already compliant with AIRBUS AOT 55-03 dated 22 August 1996 (“solution A”), mandated by DGAC [Direction Générale de l'Aviation Civile] AD F-1996-178-049(B) R1 and DGAC AD F-1996-177-038(B) with a compliance time of November 15th, 1996;
  • Refers to the latest revision of certain AIRBUS SBs.

The unsafe condition is the potential of ignition sources inside fuel tanks, which, in combination with flammable fuel vapors, could result in fuel tank explosions and consequent loss of the airplane.

Actions and Compliance

(f) Unless already done, do the actions in paragraphs (f)(1), (f)(2), (f)(3), (f)(4), and (f)(5) of this AD for the applicable airplanes identified in Table 1 of this AD.
