Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION:

Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

SUMMARY:

We propose to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2011-03-08, for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model CL-215-1A10 (CL-215), CL-215-6B11 (CL-215T Variant), and CL-215-6B11 (CL-415 Variant) airplanes. AD 2011-03-08 currently requires an inspection to determine the number of flight cycles accumulated by certain accumulators installed on the airplane, and repetitive inspections of the accumulators for cracks and replacement if necessary. Since we issued AD 2011-03-08, we determined that a terminating action is necessary to address the identified unsafe condition. This proposed AD would add a requirement for the terminating action. We are proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

DATES:

We must receive comments on this proposed AD by July 3, 2017.

Discussion

On January 26, 2011, we issued AD 2011-03-08, Amendment 39-16592 (76 FR 6536, February 7, 2011) (“AD 2011-03-08”), for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model CL-215-1A10 (CL-215), CL-215-6B11 (CL-215T Variant), and CL-215-6B11 (CL-415 Variant) airplanes. AD 2011-03-08 was prompted by reports of seven cases of on-ground hydraulic accumulator screw cap or end cap failure, which have resulted in loss of the associated hydraulic system and Start Printed Page 22767high-energy impact damage to adjacent systems and structure. AD 2011-03-08 requires an inspection to determine the number of flight cycles accumulated by applicable accumulators (i.e., brake, aileron, elevator, and rudder accumulators) installed on the airplane. AD 2011-03-08 also requires repetitive ultrasonic inspections of the accumulators for cracks and replacement of any accumulator in which a crack is detected. We issued AD 2011-03-08 to detect and correct cracking of the accumulator, which could result in loss of the associated hydraulic system and high-energy impact damage to adjacent systems and structure, potentially resulting in fuel spillage, uncommanded flap movement, or loss of aileron control.

Since we issued AD 2011-03-08, terminating action for the repetitive inspections has been developed. We have determined that a terminating action (relocation of the affected accumulators, and incorporation of new airworthiness limitations) is necessary to address the identified unsafe condition.

Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation authority for Canada, has issued Canadian Airworthiness Directive CF-2009-42R2, dated June 13, 2016 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or “the MCAI”), to correct an unsafe condition for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model CL-215-1A10 (CL-215), CL-215-6B11 (CL-215T Variant), and CL-215-6B11 (CL-415 Variant) airplanes. The MCAI states:

Seven cases of on-ground hydraulic accumulator screw cap or end cap failure have been experienced on CL-600-2B19 (CRJ) aeroplane, resulting in loss of the associated hydraulic system and high-energy impact damage to adjacent systems and structure. To date, the lowest number of flight cycles accumulated at the time of failure has been 6991.

Although there have been no failures to date on any CL-215-1A10 (CL-215) or CL-215-6B11 (CL-215T and CL-415) aeroplane, similar accumulators, Part Number (P/N) 08-8423-010 (MS28700-3), to those installed on the CL-600-2B19, are installed on the aeroplane models listed in the Applicability section of this [Canadian] AD.

A detailed analysis of the systems and structure in the potential line of trajectory of a failed screw cap/end cap for each accumulator has been conducted. It has identified that the worst-case scenarios would be impact damage to various components, potentially resulting in fuel spillage, uncommanded flap movement, or loss of aileron control.

This [Canadian] AD mandates repetitive [ultrasonic] inspections of the accumulators for cracks and replacement of any accumulator in which a crack is detected.

Revision 1 of this [Canadian] AD clarified the text of the [Canadian] AD, including the P/N of the affected accumulators.

This revision provides the terminating action [relocation of the affected accumulators, and incorporating new airworthiness limitations] to this [Canadian] AD. It also modifies the applicability range for the CL-215-1A10 (CL-215); the CL-215 is out of production and the last aeroplane produced was serial number 1125.

You may examine the MCAI in the AD docket on the Internet at http://www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating Docket No. FAA-2017-0474.

Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51

We reviewed the following Bombardier, Inc., service information:

  • Bombardier Canadair 215 Service Bulletin 215-552, Revision 2, dated June 18, 2015. This service information describes procedures to relocate the aileron hydraulic accumulator aft of its current location.
  • Bombardier Canadair 215T Service Bulletin 215-3158, Revision 2, dated April 15, 2014; and Bombardier 415 Service Bulletin 215-4423, Revision 5, dated March 17, 2016. These documents are distinct since they apply to different airplane models. This service information describes procedures to relocate the aileron, elevator, and rudder hydraulic accumulators aft and outboard of their current locations.
  • Bombardier Canadair 215 Service Bulletin 215-557, Revision 1, dated June 27, 2014; Bombardier Canadair 215T Service Bulletin 215-3182, Revision 1, dated June 27, 2014; and Bombardier 415 Service Bulletin 215-4470, Revision 1, dated June 27, 2014. These documents are distinct since they apply to different airplane models. This service information provides procedures to establish the number of flight hours for each accumulator and determine if it has been used on another type of aircraft.
  • Bombardier Model CL-215-1A10 (CL-215), Time Limits/Maintenance Checks (TLMC) Manual PSP 295, TR 295-7, dated December 13, 2013; Bombardier Model CL-215-6B11 (CL-215T), TLMC Manual PSP 395, TR LLC-3, dated December 13, 2013; Bombardier Model CL-215-6B11 (CL-215T), TLMC Manual PSP 395-1, TR LLC-1, dated December 13, 2013; and Bombardier Model CL-600-6B11 (CL-415), TLMC Manual PSP 495, TR 5-56, dated December 13, 2013. These documents are distinct since they apply to different airplane models. This service information provides a 10,000-hour accumulator life limitation for certain accumulators.

This service information is reasonably available because the interested parties have access to it through their normal course of business or by the means identified in the ADDRESSES.

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 these same type designs.

Costs of Compliance

We estimate that this proposed AD affects 7 airplanes of U.S. registry.

We estimate the following costs to comply with this proposed AD:

Estimated Costs

ActionLabor costParts costCost per productCost on U.S. operators
Ultrasonic inspection [retained action from AD 2011-03-08]7 work-hours × $85 per hour = $595$0$595$4,165
Relocation, determination of accumulator hours and usage, and maintenance or inspection program revision [new proposed action]56 work-hours × $85 per hour = $4,76004,76033,320
Start Printed Page 22768

We estimate the following costs to do any necessary replacement that would be required based on the results of the proposed inspection. We have no way of determining the number of airplanes that might need this replacement.

On-Condition Costs

ActionLabor costParts costCost per product
Replacement of cracked part [retained actions from AD 2011-03-08]6 work-hours × $85 per hour = $510$4,055$4,565

According to the manufacturer, some of the costs of this proposed AD may be covered under warranty, thereby reducing the cost impact on affected individuals. We do not control warranty coverage for affected individuals. As a result, we have included all costs in our cost estimate.

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.
