Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc. Airplanes

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of Transportation (DOT).
ACTION: Final rule.
SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Bombardier, Inc. Model CL-600-2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701, & 702), CL-600-2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705), and CL-600-2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900) airplanes. This AD was prompted by reports of failures of a hydraulic accumulator's screw-cap/end cap while on the ground that resulted in loss of use of that hydraulic system, and in high-energy impact damage to adjacent systems and structures. This AD requires an inspection for part numbers; repetitive inspections for any cracking of certain hydraulic system accumulators, and replacement, if necessary; and revising the maintenance program to include a life limit for certain hydraulic system accumulators. We are issuing this AD to prevent loss of use of a hydraulic system, which could result in reduced controllability of the airplane.
DATES: This AD becomes effective October 24, 2012.

The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in this AD as of October 24, 2012.

ADDRESSES: You may examine the AD docket on the Internet athttp://www.regulations.govor in person at the U.S. Department of Transportation, Docket Operations, M-30, West Building Ground Floor, Room W12-140, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., Washington, DC.
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Cesar Gomez, Aerospace Engineer, Airframe and Mechanical Systems Branch, ANE-171, FAA, New York Aircraft Certification Office, 1600 Stewart Avenue, Suite 410, Westbury, New York 11590; telephone (516) 228-7318; fax (516) 794-5531.
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion

We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 to include an AD that would apply to the specified products. That NPRM was published in theFederal Registeron March 20, 2012 (77 FR 16193). That NPRM proposed to correct an unsafe condition for the specified products. The MCAI states:

Seven cases of on-ground hydraulic accumulator screw cap/end cap failure have been experienced on CL-600-2B19 aeroplanes resulting in loss of the associated hydraulic system and high-energy impact damage to adjacent systems and structure. The lowest number of flight cycles accumulated at the time of failure, to date, has been 6,991 flight cycles.

Although there have been no failures to date on any CL-600-2C10, CL-600-2D15 or CL-600-2D24 aeroplanes, similar accumulators to those installed on the CL-600-2B19, are installed. The part numbers (P/Ns) of the accumulators installed on CL-600-2C10, CL-600-2D15 and CL-600-2D24 aeroplanes are 900096-1 (Hydraulic System No. 1 and Hydraulic System No. 2 accumulators), 900097-1 (Hydraulic System No. 3 accumulator) and 08-60204-001 (Inboard Brake and Outboard Brake accumulators).

A detailed analysis of the calculated line of trajectory of a failed screw cap/end cap for each of the accumulators has been conducted, resulting in the identification of several areas where systems and/or structural components could potentially be damaged. Although all of the failures to date have occurred on the ground, an in-flight failure affecting such components could potentially have an adverse effect on the controllability of the aeroplane.

This [Canadian] directive gives instructions to conduct [an inspection to determine if certain hydraulic accumulators are installed and, if necessary,] repetitive ultrasonic inspections [for cracking] of the Hydraulic System No. 1, Hydraulic System No. 2, Hydraulic System No. 3, Inboard Brake and Outboard Brake accumulators, P/Ns 900096-1, 900097-1, and 08-60204-001, that are not identified by the letter “M” or “T” after the S/N [serial number] on the identification plate.

Required actions include revising the maintenance program to include a life limit for certain accumulators, and for airplanes on which cracking is found during an ultrasonic inspection, replacing the accumulator with a new accumulator containing the letter “M” or “T”, as applicable, after the serial number on the identification plate or with a new accumulator with a different part number, and eventual replacement of certain accumulators with new accumulators. You may obtain further information by examining the MCAI in the AD docket. Comments

We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We considered the comments received.

Request To Reference Most Recent Service Information

Comair Inc. (Comair) requested that we reference the most recent service information. Comair also stated that the revised service information has no effect on airplanes on which inspections, replacements, or maintenance program revisions were accomplished using the previous issues that were identified in the NPRM (77 FR 16193, March 20, 2012).

We agree to reference the most recent service information of certain service bulletins as identified below.

• Bombardier Alert Service Bulletin A670BA-29-011, Revision B, dated December 22, 2010, including Appendix A, Revision A, dated July 27, 2010 (for hydraulic system No. 1, and hydraulic system No. 2 accumulators).

• Bombardier Alert Service Bulletin A670BA-29-012, Revision B, dated December 22, 2010, including Appendix A, Revision A, dated July 27, 2010 (for hydraulic system No. 3 accumulators).

• Bombardier Alert Service Bulletin A670BA-32-021, Revision D, dated December 22, 2010, including Appendix A, Revision A, dated October 18, 2007 (for inboard and outboard brake accumulators).

• Bombardier Service Bulletin 670BA-29-013, Revision B, dated December 22, 2010, including Appendix A, dated January 29, 2010 (for hydraulic system No. 1, and hydraulic system No. 2 accumulators).

• Bombardier Service Bulletin 670BA-32-026, Revision B, dated December 22, 2010, including Appendix A, dated January 29, 2010 (for inboard and outboard brake accumulators).

• Bombardier Service Bulletin 670BA-32-028, Revision A, dated February 3, 2011 (for inboard brake and outboard brake accumulators).

This revised service information does not add more work to the actions described in the NPRM (77 FR 16193, March 20, 2012). We have revised paragraphs (i), (p), (q), and (t) of this AD accordingly.

Request To Include an Alternative Method of Compliance (AMOC) for a Different Part Number (P/N)

Tactair Fluid Controls (Tactair) requested that we include a hydraulic accumulator having P/N 11093-4 as an AMOC for replacing hydraulic accumulators having P/N 08-60204-001. Tactair noted that more than halfof the airplanes in the Model CL-600-2B19 fleet have been retrofitted to P/N 11093-4. Tactair also indicated that allowing use of P/N 11093-4 would be more economical for operators.

We disagree with the commenter's request. Part number 11093-4 has not yet been certified for use on Model CL-600-2C10 (Regional Jet Series 700, 701, & 702), CL-600-2D15 (Regional Jet Series 705), or CL-600-2D24 (Regional Jet Series 900) airplanes. Approval of AMOCs provides alternative methods of compliance to the methods required to be used in the associated AD. An AMOC is issued only after an AD has been issued and only after data are provided to show that the proposed solution is complete and addresses the unsafe condition. Once we issue this AD, any person may request approval of an AMOC under the provisions of paragraph (s)(1) of this AD. We have not changed this AD in this regard.

Updated Credit Language

We have revised the heading and wording for paragraph (q) of this AD to provide appropriate credit for previous accomplishment of certain actions. This change does not affect the intent of that paragraph.

Conclusion

We reviewed the available data, including the comments received, and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting the AD with the changes described previously.

Costs of Compliance

We estimate that this AD will affect 389 products of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it will take up to 21 work-hours per product to comply with the basic requirements of this AD. The average labor rate is $85 per work-hour. Required parts will cost about $8,988 per product. Where the service information lists required parts costs that are covered under warranty, we have assumed that there will be no charge for these parts. As we do not control warranty coverage for affected parties, some parties may incur costs higher than estimated here. Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of this AD to the U.S. operators to be up to $4,190,697, or $10,773 per product, per inspection cycle.

In addition, we estimate that any necessary follow-on actions would take up to 7 work-hours and require parts costing $8,988, for a cost of $9,583 per product. We have no way of determining the number of products that may need these actions.

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.

We prepared a regulatory evaluation of the estimated costs to comply with this AD and placed it in the AD docket.

Examining the AD Docket

You may examine the AD docket on the Internet athttp://www.regulations.gov;or in person at the Docket Operations office between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. The AD docket contains the NPRM (77 FR 16193, March 20, 2012), the regulatory evaluation, any comments received, and other information. The street address for the Docket Operations office (telephone (800) 647-5527) is in theADDRESSESsection. Comments will be available in the AD docket shortly after receipt.
