Federal Register/Vol. 75, No. 98/Friday, May 21, 2010/Rules and Regulations
products identified in this rulemaking
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 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); 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
List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39

safety, Incorporation by reference,
Adoption of the Amendment
Accordingly, under the authority
delegated to me by the Administrator,
the FAA amends 14 CFR part 39 as
m 1. The authority citation for part 39
continues to read as follows:
Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40113, 44701.
2. The FAA amends 39.13 by adding
the following new AD:

Amendment 39-16293. Docket No.
FAA-2010-0491; Directorate Identifier
(a) This airworthiness directive (AD)
becomes effective June 7, 2010.
Other Affected ADs
(c) This AD applies to Model AS332L2
helicopters, with a main rotor mast assembly
(mast) that has not been modified per MOD
0743714, installed, certificated in any
Note 1: MOD 0743714 includes replacing
the plastic peel shim with a stainless steel
peel shim, installing improved swashplate
bearing attachment screws, and increasing
the torque on those screws.
(d) The mandatory continued
airworthiness information (MCAI) AD was
issued after the discovery of broken
swashplate bearing attaching screw heads.
Failure of these screw heads could lead to the
loss of the coupling between the non-rotating
and the rotating swashplate. This AD is
intended to prevent loss of power to the
rotating swashplate and subsequent loss of
control of the helicopter.
Actions and Compliance
(e) For each mast that has less than 750
hours TIS since it was installed on any
helicopter or since its last overhaul, within
20 hours time-in-service (TIS), unless already
done, and thereafter at intervals not to exceed
25 hours TIS, and for each mast that has 750
or more hours TIS since it was installed on
any helicopter or since its last overhaul,
within 25 hours TIS, unless already done,
and thereafter at intervals not to exceed 25
(1) Inspect for the presence of each mast
swashplate bearing attachment screw head by
either using a mirror or by feeling for the
screw heads under the flange. Do the
inspections by following the
Accomplishment Instructions, Operational
Procedure, paragraphs 2.B.1. through 2.B.2.
and Figure 1, of Eurocopter Alert Service
Bulletin (ASB) No. 62.00.66, dated
September 13, 2006, except this AD does not
require you to send the assembly to an
"approved repair center for investigation and
(2) If an attachment screw head is missing,
before further flight, replace the unairworthy
mast with an airworthy mast.
Note 2: If you have complied with ASB No.
62.00.66, dated September 13, 2006, you
have met the intent of this AD.
Differences Between the FAA AD and the
(f) This AD differs from the MCAI AD as
(1) This AD does not require you to send
the assembly to an "approved repair center
for investigation and reconditioning."
(2) This AD uses "hours TIS" instead of
(3) This AD does not apply to non-installed
(4) This AD does not include an inspection
for masts that were inspected per a previous
