Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION:

Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

SUMMARY:

The FAA proposes to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2015-26-01, which applies to certain Airbus Helicopters Model AS332C1, AS332L1, AS332L2, EC225LP, AS-365N2, AS 365 N3, EC 155B, and EC155B1 helicopters with an energy-absorbing seat. AD 2015-26-01 requires inspecting for the presence of labels (placards) that prohibit stowing anything under the seat, and if a label (placard) is missing or not clearly visible to each occupant, installing a label (placard). Since the FAA issued AD 2015-26-01, the FAA has determined that additional helicopters are affected by the unsafe condition, and that new labels (placards) are required for all affected helicopters. This proposed AD would retain all of the requirements of AD 2015-26-01. This proposed AD would also add helicopters to the applicability and require a modification (installing new labels (placards)). The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

DATES:

The FAA must receive comments on this proposed AD by November 23, 2020.

Discussion

The FAA issued AD 2015-26-01, Amendment 39-18349 (80 FR 79466, December 22, 2015) (“AD 2015-26-01”), for certain Airbus Helicopters Model AS332C1, AS332L1, AS332L2, EC225LP, AS-365N2, AS 365 N3, EC 155B, and EC155B1 helicopters with an energy-absorbing seat. AD 2015-26-01 requires inspecting for the presence of labels (placards) that prohibit stowing anything under the seat, and if a label (placard) is missing or not clearly visible to each occupant, installing a label (placard). AD 2015-26-01 resulted from the discovery that required labels (placards) had not been systematically installed. The FAA issued AD 2015-26-01 to address any object stowed under an energy-absorbing seat, which could reduce the efficiency of the energy-absorbing function of the seat, resulting in injury to the seat occupants during an accident.

Actions Since AD 2015-26-01 Was Issued

Since AD 2015-26-01 was issued, the FAA has determined that additional helicopters are affected by the unsafe condition, and that new labels (placards) are required for all affected helicopters.

The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which is the Technical Agent for the Member States of the European Union, has issued EASA AD 2019-0088R1, dated November 8, 2019 (referred to after this as the Mandatory Continuing Airworthiness Information, or “the MCAI”), to correct an unsafe condition for certain Airbus Helicopters Model AS332C, AS332C1, AS332L, AS332L1, AS332L2, EC225LP, AS-365N2, AS 365 N3, EC 155B and EC155B1 helicopters with an energy-absorbing seat. EASA advised that during certification of an energy-absorbing seat with a new part number, the labels (placards) that require keeping the space under the seat free of any object were not systematically installed. EASA stated that this condition, if not corrected, could prompt occupants to stow objects under an energy-absorbing seat, which would reduce the effectiveness of the seat and the occupants' chance of surviving an accident. EASA consequently issued AD 2014-0204, dated September 11, 2014; corrected September 12, 2014 (which corresponds to FAA AD 2015-26-01) to require a one-time inspection for the presence of labels (placards) and, if they were missing or unreadable, making and installing labels (placards) prohibiting the placing of an object under an energy absorbing seat. EASA later advised, in EASA AD 2017-0226, dated November 17, 2017 (“EASA AD 2017-0226”), which superseded EASA AD 2014-0204, that additional new labels (placards) were required and that additional helicopters were affected by the unsafe condition. In this MCAI, which supersedes EASA AD 2017-0226, EASA advised that additional extended compliance times were necessary for certain helicopters.

You may examine the MCAI in the AD docket on the internet at https://www.regulations.gov by searching for and locating Docket No. FAA-2020-0905.

Other Related Service Information

Airbus Helicopters issued Airbus Helicopters Alert Service Bulletin No. EC225-04A012, Revision 1, dated September 7, 2017, which describes procedures for inspecting for labels, placards, or markings that prohibit stowing anything under certain seats and installing a placard.

Airbus Helicopters has also issued Airbus Helicopters Alert Service Bulletin No. EC225-25A179, Revision 0, dated September 7, 2017, which describes procedures for installing new labels (placards) prohibiting stowage of any object under an energy-absorbing seat.

FAA's Determination

This product has been approved by the aviation authority of another country, and is approved for operation in the United States. Pursuant to the FAA's bilateral agreement with the State of Design Authority, the FAA has been notified of the unsafe condition described in the MCAI and service information referenced above. The FAA is proposing this AD after evaluating all the relevant information and determining the unsafe condition described previously is likely to exist or develop on other products of the same type design.

Proposed Requirements of this NPRM

This proposed AD would retain all of the requirements of AD 2015-26-01. This proposed AD would require accomplishing the actions specified in the service information described previously.

Clarification of the Retained Compliance Times

Paragraph (g) of AD 2015-26-01 specified the compliance time as: “Within 110 hours time in service.” The FAA has included clarification of the retained compliance time for paragraph (g) of this NPRM, that specifies: “Within 110 hours time in service after January 26, 2016 (the effective date of AD 2015-26-01) . . .”

Clarification of the Generic Part Number for Seat Type

Figure 1 to paragraph (a) of AD 2015-26-01 specifies an incorrect generic part number for Socea Sogerma seat type ST107. The FAA has corrected that generic part number in figure 1 to paragraphs (c) and (j) of this proposed AD. The incorrect generic part number was 2010107-xx-xx; the correct generic part number is 2510107-xx-xx.

Costs of Compliance

The FAA estimates that this proposed AD affects 90 helicopters of U.S. registry. The FAA estimates the following costs to comply with this proposed AD:

Estimated Costs for Required Actions

ActionLabor costParts costCost per productCost on U.S. operators
Inspection (52 Helicopters) (Retained actions from AD 2015-26-01)1 work-hour × $85 per hour = $85$0$85$4,420
Install label (placard) (52 Helicopters) (Retained actions from AD 2015-26-01)2 work-hours × $85 per hour = $170$Minimal1708,840
Inspection (38 Helicopters) (New proposed actions)1 work-hour × $85 per hour = $85$0853,230
Install label (placard) (38 Helicopters) (New proposed actions)2 work-hours × $85 per hour = $170$Minimal1706,460
Install new label (placard) (New proposed actions)2 work-hours × $85 per hour = $170$Minimal17015,300

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.

The FAA is 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

The FAA determined that this proposed AD would not have federalism Start Printed Page 63243implications 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) Will not affect intrastate aviation in Alaska, and

(3) 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.
