ACTION:

Final rule; request for comments.

SUMMARY:

We are superseding Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2013-26-05 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. AD 2013-26-05 required repetitive weighing of fire extinguisher bottles having a certain part number, and eventual replacement of those bottles to terminate the repetitive weighing. This new AD continues to require repetitive weighing of fire extinguisher bottles having a certain part number, and eventual replacement of those bottles to terminate the repetitive weighing. This AD was prompted by our determination that certain text in the method of compliance language specified in AD 2013-26-05 incorrectly refers to Airbus, instead of “Dassault Aviation.” We are issuing 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 (APU), or rear compartment.

DATES:

This AD becomes effective May 8, 2015.

The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain other publications listed in this AD as of October 20, 2014 (79 FR 54897, dated September 15, 2014).

We must receive comments on this AD by June 8, 2015.

Discussion

On August 29, 2014, we issued AD 2013-26-05, Amendment 39-17714 (79 FR 54897, September 15, 2014), which applied to 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. AD 2013-26-05 was prompted by reports of a manufacturing defect in the charge indicator on fire extinguisher bottles. AD 2013-26-05 required repetitive weighing of fire extinguisher bottles having a certain part number, and eventual replacement of those bottles to terminate the repetitive weighing. We issued AD 2013-26-05 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, APU, or rear compartment.

AD 2013-26-05, Amendment 39-17714 (79 FR 54897, September 15, 2014), corresponds to Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information (MCAI) European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) AD 2012-0189, dated September 24, 2012. You may examine the MCAI on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating Docket No. FAA-2015-0830.

Since we issued AD 2013-26-05, Amendment 39-17714 (79 FR 54897, September 15, 2014), we have determined that there is an error in the manufacturer's name in the method of compliance language in certain text in the “Explanation of Change Made to This AD” section and in certain paragraphs of the regulatory text of AD 2013-26-05. AD 2013-26-05 refers to Airbus's EASA Design Organization Approval (DOA), instead of Dassault Aviation's EASA DOA. In order to refer to the appropriate EASA DOA, this AD replaces “Airbus's” with “Dassault Aviation's” in paragraphs (h)(2), (h)(2)(i), (h)(2)(ii), (h)(2)(iii), (h)(2)(iv), (i), (i)(1), (i)(2), (i)(3), (i)(4), (j)(1), (j)(2), (j)(3), (j)(4), and (l)(2) of this AD. The “Explanation of Change Made to This AD” section of AD 2013-26-05 is not restated in this AD.Start Printed Page 22636

FAA's Determination and Requirements of This 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 issuing this AD because we evaluated all pertinent information and determined the unsafe condition exists and is likely to exist or develop on other products of these same type designs.

FAA's Determination of the Effective Date

We are superseding AD 2013-26-05, Amendment 39-17714 (79 FR 54897, September 15, 2014), to correct certain erroneous manufacturer information in the “Explanation of Changes to This AD” section and in certain paragraphs of the regulatory text. No other changes have been made to AD 2013-26-05. Therefore, we determined that notice and opportunity for prior public comment are unnecessary.

Comments Invited

This AD is a final rule that involves requirements affecting flight safety, and we did not precede it by notice and opportunity for public comment. We invite you to send any written relevant data, views, or arguments about this AD. Send your comments to an address listed under the ADDRESSES section. Include “Docket No. FAA-2015-0830; Directorate Identifier 2015-NM-024-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 185 airplanes of U.S. registry.

The actions required by AD 2013-26-05, Amendment 39-17714 (79 FR 54897, September 15, 2014), and retained in this AD take about 4 work-hours per product, at an average labor rate of $85 per work-hour. Required parts cost about $6,400 per product. Based on these figures, the estimated cost of the actions that were required by AD 2013-26-05 is $1,246,900, or $6,740 per product.

The new requirements of this AD add no additional economic burden.

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 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 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.
