AGENCY:

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

ACTION:

Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM); correction.

SUMMARY:

This document makes a correction to a proposed airworthiness directive (AD), which was published in the Federal Register on July 9, 2010 (75 FR 39472), and applies to certain Eclipse Aerospace, Inc. (Eclipse) Model EA500 airplanes. This NPRM proposed to require incorporating changes to the electronic flight information system and the airplane flight manuals. The FAA incorrectly referenced the applicability for Model EA500 airplanes with certain serial numbers (SNs) of this proposed AD as “000039 through 000104, 000113 through 000115, 000120, and 000123 through 000124, that incorporate Performance Enhancement & Drag Reduction Modification per any revision level of Eclipse SB 500-99-001” instead of “000039 through 000104, 000113 through 000115, 000120, and 000123 through 000124, that incorporate Avionics Upgrade to AVIO NG Configuration for ETT Configured Aircraft per any revision level of Eclipse SB 500-99-002.” This document corrects the aircraft configuration of these applicable SNs. We are issuing this document to help eliminate any confusion that this proposed AD may have created.

DATES:

We must receive comments on this proposed AD by August 23, 2010, which is the same comment period as the originally published NPRM.

Discussion

On July 1, 2010, the FAA issued an NPRM (75 FR 39472, July 9, 2010), which applies to certain Eclipse Model EA500 airplanes. The NPRM proposed to require incorporating changes to the electronic flight information system and the airplane flight manuals.

In the published NPRM, we incorrectly referenced the applicability for Model EA500 airplanes with certain serial numbers (SNs) of this proposed AD as “000039 through 000104, 000113 through 000115, 000120, and 000123 through 000124, that incorporate Performance Enhancement & Drag Reduction Modification per any revision level of Eclipse SB 500-99-001” instead of “000039 through 000104, 000113 through 000115, 000120, and 000123 through 000124, that incorporate Avionics Upgrade to AVIO NG Configuration for ETT Configured Aircraft per any revision level of Eclipse SB 500-99-002.”

Need for the Correction

This correction is needed to correct the applicability for these SNs and eliminate any confusion that this NPRM may have created.

Correction of Publication

Accordingly, the publication of July 9, 2010 (75 FR 39472), of Notice of proposed rulemaking, Docket No. FAA-2010-0691, which was the subject of FR Doc. 2010-16740, is corrected as follows:

[Corrected]

On page 39474, in the third column, lines 1 through 6, replace “000039 through 000104, 000113 through 000115, 000120, and 000123 through 000124, that incorporate Performance Enhancement & Drag Reduction Modification per any revision level of Eclipse SB 500-99-001” with “000039 through 000104, 000113 through 000115, 000120, and 000123 through 000124, that incorporate Avionics Upgrade to AVIO NG Configuration for ETT Configured Aircraft per any revision level of Eclipse SB 500-99-002.”
