AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION:

Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

SUMMARY:

We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all DASSAULT AVIATION Model FAN JET FALCON, FAN JET FALCON SERIES C, D, E, F, and G airplanes; Model MYSTERE-FALCON 200 airplanes; and Model MYSTERE-FALCON 20-C5, 20-D5, 20-E5, and 20-F5 airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of a manufacturing defect in the charge indicator on fire extinguisher bottles. This proposed AD would require repetitive weighing of fire extinguisher bottles having a certain part number, and eventual replacement of those bottles to terminate the repetitive weighing. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct a dormant failure in the fire suppression system, which could result in the inability to put out a fire in an engine, auxiliary power unit, or rear compartment.

DATES:

We must receive comments on this proposed AD by July 5, 2013.

Discussion

The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical Agent for Member States of the European Community, has issued EASA Airworthiness Directive 2012-0189, dated September 24, 2012 (referred to after this as “the MCAI”), to correct an unsafe condition for the specified products. The MCAI states:

A manufacturing defect of the charge indicator of fire extinguisher bottles has been reported on Dassault Aviation Fan Jet Falcon and Mystère-Falcon 20 series aeroplanes.

The results of the investigations concluded that this defect may lead to corrosion of the charge indicator, causing improper indication of loss of pressure inside the bottle. In addition, the Part Numbers (P/N) of the fire extinguishers and batch numbers of the affected charge indicators have been identified.

This condition, if not detected and corrected, could constitute a dormant failure that might impact the capability to extinguish a fire, either in an engine or the Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) or the rear compartment, possibly resulting in damage to the aeroplane and injury to the occupants.

For the reasons described above, this [EASA] AD requires repetitive weighing of the affected fire extinguishers bottles and, ultimately replacement of the affected bottles with serviceable bottles. In addition, this AD prohibits installation of an affected fire extinguisher bottle.

You may obtain further information by examining the MCAI in the AD docket.

Relevant Service Information

Dassault Aviation has issued the following service information:

  • Mandatory Service Bulletin F20-785, dated June 11, 2012 (for Model FAN JET FALCON, FAN JET FALCON SERIES C, D, E, F, and G airplanes; and MYSTERE-FALCON 20-C5, 20-D5, 20-E5, and 20-F5 airplanes);
  • Mandatory Service Bulletin F200-131, dated June 11, 2012 (for Model MYSTERE-FALCON 200 airplanes);
  • Dassault Maintenance Procedure 26-20-3, “Weighing of Engine Freon Fire Extinguishers,” dated October 2009, of Chapter 26 of Book 2 of the Falcon 20 Maintenance Manual (for Model FAN JET FALCON, FAN JET FALCON SERIES C, D, E, F, and G airplanes; and Model MYSTERE-FALCON 20-C5, 20-D5, 20-E5, and 20-F5 airplanes);
  • Dassault Aviation Maintenance Procedure 26-20-2, “Removal of Pyrotechnical Cartridge for Check/Replacement,” dated October 2010, of Chapter 26 of Book 2 of the Falcon 20 Maintenance Manual (for Model FAN JET FALCON, FAN JET FALCON SERIES C, D, E, F, and G airplanes; and Model MYSTERE-FALCON 20-C5, 20-D5, 20-E5, and 20-F5 airplanes);
  • Dassault Aviation Falcon 200 Maintenance Requirement Card 171.0, “Engine/Rear compartment Extinguisher (14W1-14W2)—Removal/Installation (ATA 26-20-06), dated December 2011, of Chapter 26 of Book 1 of the Falcon 200 Maintenance Manual (for Model MYSTERE-FALCON 200 airplanes); and

The actions described in this service information are intended to correct the unsafe condition identified in the MCAI.

FAA's Determination and Requirements of This Proposed AD

This product has been approved by the aviation authority of another country, and is approved for operation in the United States. Pursuant to our bilateral agreement with the State of Design Authority, we have been notified of the unsafe condition described in the MCAI and service information referenced above. We are proposing this AD because we evaluated all pertinent information and determined an unsafe condition exists and is likely to exist or develop on other products of the same type design.

Costs of Compliance

Based on the service information, we estimate that this proposed AD would affect about 185 products of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it would take about 4 work-hours per product to comply with the basic requirements of this proposed AD. The average labor rate is $85 per work-hour. Required parts would cost about $6,400 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 the proposed AD on U.S. operators to be up to $1,246,900, or $6,740 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 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 this 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),

(3) Will not affect intrastate aviation in Alaska, and

(4) 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.
