ACTION:

Final rule; request for comments.

SUMMARY:

We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2014-05-02 for certain The Boeing Company Model 737-100, -200, -200C, -300, -400, and -500 series airplanes. AD 2014-05-02 required repetitive inspections for cracking and corrosion of the aft pressure bulkhead, repetitive inspections of the frame chord drain path for debris, and corrective actions if necessary; and, for certain airplanes, enlargement of frame chord drain holes. This AD requires the same actions as AD 2014-05-02, but revises a certain repetitive inspection interval to avoid a misunderstanding of the repetitive inspection interval for the aft pressure bulkhead. This AD was prompted by reports from operators expressing confusion regarding a certain repetitive inspection interval for the aft pressure bulkhead. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct corrosion or cracking of the aft pressure bulkhead, which could result in loss of the aft pressure bulkhead web and stiffeners, and consequent rapid decompression of the airplane.

DATES:

Discussion

On February 18, 2014, we issued AD 2014-05-02, Amendment 39-17775 (79 FR 12045, March 4, 2014), for certain The Boeing Company Model 737-100, -200, -200C, -300, -400, and -500 series airplanes. AD 2014-05-02 required repetitive inspections for cracking and corrosion of the aft pressure bulkhead, repetitive inspections of the frame chord drain path for debris, and corrective actions if necessary; and, for certain airplanes, enlargement of frame chord drain holes. AD 2014-05-02 resulted from three reports of severe corrosion in the area affected by AD 2002-10-11, Amendment 39-12757 (67 FR 36085, May 23, 2002), which AD 2014-05-02 superseded. We issued AD 2014-05-02 to detect and correct corrosion or cracking of the aft pressure bulkhead, which could result in loss of the aft pressure bulkhead web and stiffeners, and consequent rapid decompression of the airplane.

Actions Since AD 2014-05-02, Amendment 39-17775 (79 FR 12045, March 4, 2014) Was Issued

Since we issued AD 2014-05-02, Amendment 39-17775 (79 FR 12045, March 4, 2014), we have received reports from operators expressing confusion regarding the repetitive inspection interval for the aft pressure bulkhead inspection that was required by paragraph (l)(2) of AD 2014-05-02. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct corrosion or cracking of the aft pressure bulkhead, which could result in loss of the aft pressure bulkhead web and stiffeners, and consequent rapid decompression of the airplane.

FAA's Determination

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 the same type design.

AD Requirements

This AD requires the same actions that were required by AD 2014-05-02, Amendment 39-17775 (79 FR 12045, March 4, 2014), but we have revised the Start Printed Page 52954wording of the repetitive inspection interval for the aft pressure bulkhead specified in paragraph (l)(2) of this AD to clarify the required action. We have stated that the repetitive inspection interval must be repeated at intervals not to exceed 2 years.

Additional Change to AD 2014-05-02, Amendment 39-17775 (79 FR 12045, March 4, 2014)

We have corrected a typographical error in the supplemental type certificate number that is in paragraph (c)(2) of AD 2014-05-02, Amendment 39-17775 (79 FR 12045, March 4, 2014).

We have also added a statement to paragraphs (k) and (o) of this AD that for repaired areas, the required inspection may be accomplished without removal of the repairs. This change will not increase the economic burden on any operator, nor will it increase the scope of this AD.

FAA's Justification and Determination of the Effective Date

An unsafe condition exists that requires the immediate adoption of this AD. The FAA has found that the risk to the flying public justifies waiving notice and comment prior to adoption of this rule because operators have been uncertain of the correct repetitive inspection interval for the aft pressure bulkhead inspection. Therefore, we find that notice and opportunity for prior public comment 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 the docket number FAA-2014-0623, and directorate identifier 2014-NM-139-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 will also post a report summarizing each substantive verbal contact we receive about this AD.

Costs of Compliance

We estimate that this AD affects 419 airplanes of U.S. registry.

We estimate the following costs to comply with this AD:

Estimated Costs

ActionLabor costParts costCost per productCost on U.S. operators
Inspection [actions retained from AD 2014-05-02, Amendment 39-17775 (79 FR 12045, March 4, 2014)]4 work-hours × $85 per hour = $ 340 per inspection cycle$0$340 per inspection cycle$142,460 per inspection cycle.

The requirements of this AD add no additional economic burden.

We estimate the following costs to do any necessary repairs that would be required based on the results of the inspection. We have no way of determining the number of aircraft that might need these repairs.

On-Condition Costs

ActionLabor costParts costCost per product
Repair [actions retained from AD 2014-05-02, Amendment 39-17775 (79 FR 12045, March 4, 2014)]Up to 136 work-hours × $85 per hour = Up to $11,560$5,217Up to $16,777.

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),

(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.
