Final rule; request for comments; correction.


The FAA is correcting an airworthiness directive (AD) that was published in the Federal Register. That AD applies to Eurocopter Deutschland GmbH Model MBB-BK 117 C-2 helicopters. A page reference of the rotorcraft flight manual in the Required Actions section, paragraph (e)(1)(i), is incorrect. This document corrects that error. In all other respects, the original document remains the same.


This correction is effective August 17, 2012. The effective date for AD 2012-12-21 remains July 10, 2012. The last date for submitting comments to the final rule; request for comments remains August 24, 2012.


You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at; 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 this AD, any incorporated-by-reference service information, the economic evaluation, any comments received, and other information. The street address for the Docket Operations Office (phone: 800-647-5527) is U.S. Department of Transportation, Docket Operations Office, M-30, West Building Ground Floor, Room W12-140, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., Washington, DC 20590.
