Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION:

Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

SUMMARY:

We propose to supersede airworthiness directive (AD) 2002-23-19, which applies to all Dassault Aviation Model Falcon 2000 series airplanes. That AD currently requires repetitive operational tests, repetitive measurements, and repetitive replacement of certain jackscrews. Since we issued that AD, the manufacturer revised the airplane maintenance manual (AMM) maintenance requirements and airworthiness limitations. This proposed AD would require revising the maintenance program to incorporate new or revised maintenance requirements and airworthiness limitations. We are proposing this AD to prevent reduced controllability of the airplane.

DATES:

We must receive comments on this proposed AD by August 26, 2013.

Discussion

On November 19, 2002, we issued AD 2002-23-19, Amendment 39-12963 (67 FR 71452, December 2, 2002), for all Dassault Aviation Model Falcon 2000 airplanes. (That AD superseded AD 99-14-07, Amendment 39-11218 (64 FR 36561, July 7, 1999)). AD 2002-23-19 requires repetitive operational tests of the flap asymmetry detection system, repetitive replacement of the inboard flap jackscrews, and repetitive measurement of the screw/nut play of the jackscrews on the inboard and outboard flaps.

Since we issued AD 2002-23-19, we have determined that existing maintenance requirements and airworthiness limitations are inadequate and additional inspections are necessary to address the identified unsafe condition. The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the European Community, has issued EASA Airworthiness Directive 2012-0156, dated August 23, 2012 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or “the MCAI”), to correct an unsafe condition for the specified products. The MCAI states:

The airworthiness limitations and maintenance requirements for the Falcon 2000 type design are included in Dassault Aviation Falcon 2000 (F2000) Aircraft Maintenance Manual (AMM) chapter 5-40 and are approved by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). EASA issued AD 2008-0221 to require accomplishment of the maintenance tasks, and implementation of the airworthiness limitations, as specified in Start Printed Page 41883Dassault Aviation F2000 AMM chapter 5-40 at revision 12.

Since that [EASA] AD was issued, Dassault Aviation have issued F2000 AMM chapter 5-40 at revision 17, which introduces new or more restrictive maintenance requirements and/or airworthiness limitations.

Dassault Aviation AMM chapter 5-40 revision 17 contains among other changes the following requirements:

—Inspection and test of horizontal stabilizer jackscrew;

—Operational test of voltage monitoring circuits;

—Upgrade of screwjack of flap actuators from the older to the latest -3 version;

—Revised Time Between Overhaul for screwjack of flap actuators -3 version;

—Revised interval for checking the screw/nut play on screwjack of flap actuators -3 version;

—Removal of service life limit for screwjack of flap actuators;

—Test of flap asymmetry protection system. Compliance with the flap asymmetry test is required by DGAC [Direction Générale de l'Aviation Civile] France AD F-1999-038-008(B)R1. F2000 AMM chapter 5-40 at revision 17 introduces extended inspection interval;

—Inspection procedures of fuselage and wings;

—Check of overpressure tightness on pressurization control regulating valves. Compliance with this check is required by EASA AD 2008-0072. F2000 AMM chapter 5-40 at revision 17 introduces extended inspection interval.

The maintenance tasks and airworthiness limitations, as specified in the F2000 AMM chapter 5-40, have been identified as mandatory actions for continued airworthiness of the F2000 type design. Failure to comply with AMM chapter 5-40 at revision 17 might constitute an unsafe condition.

* * * * *

The required action is revising the maintenance program to incorporate all airworthiness limitations and maintenance tasks specified in Chapter 5-40, Airworthiness Limitations, Revision 18, dated July 2012, of Chapter 5, Maintenance Planning Document, of the Dassualt Falcon 2000 Maintenance Manual. You may obtain further information by examining the MCAI in the AD docket.

Explanation of Change to Applicability

We have revised the applicability of AD 2002-23-19 in this proposed AD to clarify that only Dassault Model Falcon 2000 airplanes are affected by this proposed AD and not Model Falcon 2000EX airplanes. The applicability of AD 2002-23-19 states that the AD is applicable to Dassault Model Falcon 2000 series airplanes, which includes Model Falcon 2000EX airplanes, but it was not the FAA's intent to include Model Falcon 2000EX airplanes in the applicability of that AD.

Change to Existing AD (67 FR 71452, December 2, 2002)

This proposed AD would retain all requirements of AD 2002-23-19. Since AD 2002-23-19 was issued, the AD format has been revised, and certain paragraphs have been rearranged. As a result, the corresponding paragraph identifiers have changed in this proposed AD, as listed in the following table:

Relevant Service Information

Dassault has issued Chapter 5-40, Airworthiness Limitations, Revision 18, dated July 2012, of Chapter 5, Maintenance Planning Document, of the Dassualt Falcon 2000 Maintenance Manual. 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.

This proposed AD would require revisions to certain operator maintenance documents to include new actions (e.g., inspections). Compliance with these actions is required by 14 CFR 91.403(c). For airplanes that have been previously modified, altered, or repaired in the areas addressed by this proposed AD, the operator may not be able to accomplish the actions described in the revisions. In this situation, to comply with 14 CFR 91.403(c), the operator must request approval for an alternative method of compliance according to paragraph (m) of this proposed AD. The request should include a description of changes to the required inspections that will ensure the continued operational safety of the airplane.

Costs of Compliance

Based on the service information, we estimate that this proposed AD would affect about 229 products of U.S. registry.

The actions that are required by AD 2002-23-19, and retained in this proposed AD, take about 17 work-hours per product, per test/replacement cycle, at an average labor rate of $85 per work hour. Required parts cost about $21,680 per product, per replacement cycle. Based on these figures, the estimated cost of the currently required actions is $23,125 per product, per test/replacement cycle.

We estimate that it would take about 1 work-hour per product to comply with the new basic requirements of this proposed AD. The average labor rate is $85 per work-hour. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of the proposed AD on U.S. operators to be $19,465, or $85 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 proposed 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:Start Printed Page 41884

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.
