Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION:

Final rule; request for comments.

SUMMARY:

We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Gulfstream Model G-IV, GIV-X, GV-SP series airplanes and Model GV airplanes. This AD requires, for certain airplanes, a one-time inspection for sealant applied to the exterior of the auxiliary power unit (APU) enclosure (firewall), and, for airplanes with the subject sealant and certain other airplanes, a revision of the airplane flight manual to prohibit operation of the APU during certain ground and flight operations. This AD results from notification from the airplane manufacturer that an improper, flammable sealant was used on the interior and exterior of the APU enclosure (firewall). We are issuing this AD to prevent this flammable sealant from igniting the exterior surfaces of the APU enclosure (firewall) under certain anomalous conditions such as an APU failure/APU compartment fire, which could result in propagation of an uncontained fire to other critical areas of the airplane.

DATES:

This AD is effective August 26, 2009.

The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in the AD as of August 26, 2009.

We must receive comments on this AD by October 13, 2009.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion

The manufacturer has notified us that an improper, flammable sealant (GMS 4107) was used on interior angles formed by sheet intersections and titanium sheet mating surfaces of the auxiliary power unit (APU) enclosure (firewall). This flammable sealant was also used to coat rivet heads on the interior and exterior surfaces of the APU enclosure (firewall). In some places the sealant was used by design, and in other places it was used in error. This sealant could ignite the exterior surfaces of the APU enclosure (firewall) under certain anomalous conditions such as an APU failure/APU compartment fire. This condition, if not corrected, could result in propagation of an uncontained fire to other critical areas of the airplane.

Relevant Service Information

We reviewed the Gulfstream alert customer bulletins listed in the following table. The alert customer bulletins for Model G-IV series airplanes and Model GV airplanes describe procedures for a one-time inspection of the APU enclosure (firewall) for overcoat application of the flammable sealant on rivets or fillet seals on panel joints. For Model GIV-X and GV-SP series airplanes, and airplanes with flammable sealant found during the inspection, the alert customer bulletins describe revising the applicable airplane flight manual (AFM) and reporting compliance to Gulfstream.Start Printed Page 40062

FAA's Determination and Requirements of This AD

We are issuing this AD because we evaluated all the relevant information and determined the unsafe condition described previously is likely to exist or develop in other products of these same type designs. This AD requires accomplishing the actions specified in the service information described previously, except as discussed under “Differences Between the AD and the Service Information.”

Differences Between the AD and the Service Information

Although the Gulfstream alert customer bulletins specified in the table titled “Table 1—Applicable alert customer bulletins including airplane flight manual (AFM) supplements, and AFMs” of this AD specify to submit information to the manufacturer, this AD does not include such a requirement.

Although certain Gulfstream alert customer bulletins specified in the table titled “Table 1—Applicable alert customer bulletins including airplane flight manual (AFM) supplements, and AFMs” of this AD specify only to “inspect” for flammable sealant on the APU enclosure (firewall), we have determined that the procedures in those Gulfstream alert customer bulletins should be described as a “general visual inspection.” Note 1 has been included in this AD to define this type of inspection.

Clarification of Statement in Gulfstream Alert Customer Bulletins

The Gulfstream alert customer bulletins specified in the table titled “Table 1—Applicable alert customer bulletins including airplane flight manual (AFM) supplements, and AFMs” of this AD include a statement in the Accomplishment Instructions to inform operators to contact Gulfstream “if technical assistance is required” in accomplishing the actions specified in the alert customer bulletins. We have included Note 2 in this AD to clarify that any deviation from the instructions provided in the applicable alert customer bulletin must be approved as an alternative method of compliance under the provisions of paragraph (l) of this AD.

Interim Action

We consider this AD interim action. If final action is later identified, we might consider further rulemaking then.

FAA's Justification and Determination of the Effective Date

The use of flammable sealant in the construction of the primary APU enclosure (firewall) compromises the integrity of the enclosure (firewall). If an APU fire occurs, the flammable sealant can ignite the exterior of the APU enclosure (firewall). This area is very confined and surrounded by primary airframe structure that carries the empennage loads. Primary flight controls for pitch and yaw are routed through the area adjacent to the APU enclosure (firewall). Because of our requirement to promote safe flight of civil aircraft and thus the critical need to assure the structural integrity and proper functioning of the APU enclosure (firewall), and the short compliance time involved with this action, this AD must be issued immediately.

Because an unsafe condition exists that requires the immediate adoption of this AD, we find that notice and opportunity for prior public comment hereon are impracticable and that good cause exists for making this amendment effective in less than 30 days.

Comments Invited

This AD is a final rule that involves requirements affecting flight safety, and we did not provide you with notice and an opportunity to provide your comments before it becomes effective. However, we invite you to send any written data, views, or arguments about this AD. Send your comments to an address listed under the ADDRESSES section. Include “Docket No. FAA-2009-0683; Directorate Identifier 2009-NM-129-AD” at the beginning of your comments. We specifically invite comments on the overall regulatory, economic, environmental, and energy aspects of this AD. We will consider all comments received by the closing date and may amend this AD because of those comments.

We will post all comments we receive, without change, to http://www.regulations.gov, including any personal information you provide. We Start Printed Page 40063will also post a report summarizing each substantive verbal contact we receive about this AD.

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

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 that this AD:

(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.

You can find our regulatory evaluation and the estimated costs of compliance in the AD Docket.
