2019-26963. Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes  

  • Start Preamble

    AGENCY:

    Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

    ACTION:

    Final rule.

    SUMMARY:

    The FAA is adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all The Boeing Company Model 737-100, -200, -200C, -300, -400, and -500 series airplanes. This AD was prompted by significant changes made to the airworthiness limitations (AWLs) related to fuel tank ignition prevention and the nitrogen generation system. This AD requires revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to include new or revised AWLs. The FAA is issuing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.

    DATES:

    This AD is effective January 21, 2020.

    The Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of a certain publication listed in this AD as of January 21, 2020.

    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    Discussion

    The FAA issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 by adding an AD that would apply to all The Boeing Company Model 737-100, -200, -200C, -300, -400, and -500 series airplanes. The NPRM published in the Federal Register on June 10, 2019 (84 FR 26778). The NPRM was prompted by significant changes made to the AWLs related to fuel tank ignition prevention and the nitrogen generation system. The NPRM proposed to require revising the existing maintenance or inspection program, as applicable, to include new or revised AWLs.

    The FAA is issuing this AD to address the potential of ignition sources inside fuel tanks, which, in combination with flammable fuel vapors, could result in fuel tank explosions and consequent loss of the airplane.

    Comments

    The FAA gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this final rule. The following presents the comments received on the NPRM and the FAA's response to each comment.

    Support for the NPRM

    Air Line Pilots Association, International (ALPA) agreed with the intent of the NPRM.

    Effect of Winglets on Accomplishment of the Proposed Actions

    Aviation Partners Boeing stated that the installation of winglets per Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) ST01219SE does not affect the accomplishment of the manufacturer's service instructions.

    The FAA agrees with the commenter that STC ST01219SE does not affect the accomplishment of the manufacturer's service instructions. Therefore, the installation of STC ST01219SE does not affect the ability to accomplish the actions required by this AD. The FAA has not changed this AD in this regard.

    Request for Additional Affected AD

    Boeing requested that the FAA include AD 2018-04-12, Amendment 39-19208 (83 FR 9178, March 5, 2018) (“AD 2018-04-12”), as an affected AD in the proposed AD. Boeing pointed out that AD 2018-04-12 requires operators to incorporate certain AWLs included in certain previous revisions of Boeing 737-100/200/200C/300/400/500 Airworthiness Limitations (AWLs) and Certification Maintenance Requirements (CMRs), D6-38278-CMR. Boeing explained that the specific AWLs referenced by AD 2018-04-12 are still present in the latest revision mandated by this AD, but are at a later revision, and as such, should be considered terminating action for the requirements of paragraph (h) of AD 2018-04-12. Boeing noted that AD 2013-13-15, Amendment 39-17503 (78 FR 42415, July 16, 2013) (“AD 2013-13-15”), has similar requirements to those in AD 2018-04-12, and that those similar requirements in AD 2013-13-15 are terminated as specified in paragraph (j)(3) of the proposed AD.

    The FAA agrees with the commenter's request for the reasons provided. The FAA has added paragraph (b)(7) to this AD to specify that AD 2018-04-12 is affected by this AD, and paragraph (j)(7) to this AD to specify that the requirements of paragraph (h) of AD 2018-04-12 are terminated by the revision required by paragraph (g) of this AD.

    Clarification That Previous Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs) Are Not Approved For This AD

    The regulatory text of the NPRM did not include a paragraph specifying that AMOCs previously approved for the ADs specified in paragraph (j) of this AD are approved for the corresponding requirements of this AD. For clarity, the FAA has added paragraph (k)(4) to this AD to specify that AMOCs that were previously approved for the ADs specified in paragraph (j) of this AD are not approved as AMOCs for this AD.

    Conclusion

    The FAA reviewed the relevant data, considered the comments received, and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting this final rule with the changes described previously and minor editorial changes. The FAA has determined that these minor changes:

    • Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the NPRM for addressing the unsafe condition; and
    • Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was already proposed in the NPRM.

    The FAA also determined that these changes will not increase the economic burden on any operator or increase the scope of this final rule.

    Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51

    The FAA reviewed Boeing 737-100/200/200C/300/400/500 Airworthiness Limitations (AWLs) and Certification Maintenance Requirements (CMRs), D6-38278-CMR, dated March 2019. This service information describes AWLs that include airworthiness limitation instructions (ALI) and critical design configuration control limitations (CDCCL) tasks related to fuel tank ignition prevention and the nitrogen generation system. 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 section.

    Costs of Compliance

    The FAA estimates that this AD affects 381 airplanes of U.S. registry. The FAA estimates the following costs to comply with this AD:

    The FAA has determined that revising the existing maintenance or inspection program takes an average of 90 work-hours per operator, although the FAA recognizes that this number may vary from operator to operator. In the past, the FAA has estimated that this action takes 1 work-hour per airplane. Since operators incorporate maintenance or inspection program changes for their affected fleet(s), the FAA has determined that a per-operator estimate is more accurate than a per-airplane estimate. Therefore, the FAA estimates the total cost per operator to be $7,650 (90 work-hours × $85 per work-hour).

    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 Start Printed Page 68328develop on products identified in this rulemaking action.

    This AD is issued in accordance with authority delegated by the Executive Director, Aircraft Certification Service, as authorized by FAA Order 8000.51C. In accordance with that order, issuance of ADs is normally a function of the Compliance and Airworthiness Division, but during this transition period, the Executive Director has delegated the authority to issue ADs applicable to transport category airplanes and associated appliances to the Director of the System Oversight Division.

    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) 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.
