Airworthiness Directives; The BoeingCompany Airplanes
AGENCY
:
Federal AviationAdministration (FAA), DOT.
ACTION
:
Final rule.
SUMMARY
:
We are superseding anexisting airworthiness directive (AD) forall The Boeing Company Model 737–100, –200, –200C, –300, –400, and –500series airplanes. That AD currentlyrequires repetitive inspections to detectcracking in the web of the aft pressure bulkhead at body station 1016 at the aftfastener row attachment to the ‘‘Y’’chord, and corrective actions if necessary. This new AD adds variousinspections for discrepancies at the aftpressure bulkhead, and relatedinvestigative and corrective actions if necessary. This AD was prompted byseveral reports of fatigue cracking at thatlocation. We are issuing this AD todetect and correct such fatigue cracking,which could result in rapiddecompression of the fuselage.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
:
Discussion
We issued a notice of proposedrulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFRpart 39 to supersede AD 99–08–23,Amendment 39–11132 (64 FR 19879,April 23, 1999). That AD applies to thespecified products. The NPRMpublished in the
Federal Register
on June 28, 2012 (77 FR 38547). ThatNPRM proposed to continue to requirerepetitive inspections to detect crackingin the web of the aft pressure bulkheadat body station 1016 at the aft fastenerrow attachment to the ‘‘Y’’ chord, andcorrective actions if necessary. ThatNPRM also proposed to require addingvarious inspections for discrepancies atthe aft pressure bulkhead, and relatedinvestigative and corrective actions if necessary.
Comments
We gave the public the opportunity toparticipate in developing this AD. Wehave considered the comments received.Boeing supports the NPRM (77 FR38547, June 28, 2012). Aviation PartnersBoeing stated that it has reviewed theNPRM and has determined that theinstallation of winglets persupplemental type certificateST01219SE does not affect the NPRM.
Conclusion
We reviewed the relevant data,considered the comments received, anddetermined that air safety and thepublic interest require adopting the ADas proposed.
Costs of Compliance
We estimate that this AD affects 566airplanes of U.S. registry.We estimate the following costs tocomply with this AD:

Authority for This Rulemaking
Title 49 of the United States Codespecifies the FAA’s authority to issuerules on aviation safety. Subtitle I,Section 106, describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII,Aviation Programs, describes in moredetail the scope of the Agency’sauthority.We are issuing this rulemaking underthe authority described in Subtitle VII,Part A, Subpart III, Section 44701,‘‘General requirements.’’ Under thatsection, Congress charges the FAA withpromoting safe flight of civil aircraft inair commerce by prescribing regulationsfor practices, methods, and proceduresthe Administrator finds necessary forsafety in air commerce. This regulationis within the scope of that authority because it addresses an unsafe conditionthat is likely to exist or develop onproducts identified in this rulemakingaction.
Regulatory Findings
We have determined that this AD willnot have federalism implications underExecutive Order 13132. This AD willnot have a substantial direct effect onthe States, on the relationship betweenthe national government and the States,or on the distribution of power andresponsibilities among the variouslevels of government.
For the reasons discussed above, I certify that this AD: 
(1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatoryaction’’ under Executive Order 12866,(2) Is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ underDOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures(44 FR 11034, February 26, 1979),(3) Will not affect intrastate aviationin Alaska, and(4) Will not have a significanteconomic impact, positive or negative,on a substantial number of small entitiesunder the criteria of the RegulatoryFlexibility Act.
