    clusive.

(d) SUBJECT

    Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 22, Auto flight.

(e) REASON

    This AD was prompted  by reports  that during certain operating modes,
    the  flight guidance/autopilot  does  not  account for  engine failure
    while capturing an altitude. The FAA  is issuing this AD to address  a
    possible engine failure during or before a climb while in ALTSEL, ASEL
    or ALTS CAP mode, which could cause the airspeed to drop significantly
    below  the  safe  operating speed.  Prompt  crew  intervention may  be
    required to maintain a safe operating speed.

(f) COMPLIANCE

    Comply with this AD within the compliance times specified,  unless al-
    ready done.

(g) REVISION OF THE EXISTING AIRPLANE FLIGHT MANUAL (AFM)

    Within 30 days after the effective date of this AD:  Revise the exist-
    ing AFM to incorporate the information specified in the limitation and
    procedure specified  in  the  applicable  AFM specified in figure 1 to
    paragraph (g) of this AD.

14 CFR Part 39

[Docket No. FAA-2022-0398; Project Identifier MCAI-2020-00881-T]
RIN 2120-AA64

Airworthiness Directives; Bombardier, Inc., Airplanes

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD)
for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model CL-600-1A11 (600), CL-600-2A12
(601), and CL-600-2B16 (601-3A, 601-3R, and 604 Variants) airplanes.
This proposed AD was prompted by reports that during certain operating
modes, the flight guidance/autopilot does not account for engine
failure while capturing an altitude. This proposed AD would require
revising the existing airplane flight manual (AFM) to provide the
flightcrew with a new limitation and procedure for operation during
certain flight modes. 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 May 26,
2022.

ADDRESSES: You may send comments, using the procedures found in 14 CFR
11.43 and 11.45, by any of the following methods:
Federal eRulemaking Portal: Go to https://www.regulations.gov. Follow the instructions
for submitting comments.
Fax: 202-493-2251.
Mail: U.S. Department of Transportation, Docket
Operations, M-30, West Building Ground Floor, Room W12-140, 1200 New
Jersey Avenue SE, Washington, DC 20590.
Hand Delivery: Deliver to Mail address above between 9
a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays.

Background

Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA), which is the aviation
authority for Canada, has issued TCCA AD CF-2020-02, dated February 13,
2020 (TCCA AD CF-2020-02) (also referred to as the MCAI), to correct an
unsafe condition for certain Bombardier, Inc., Model CL-600-1A11 (600),
CL-600-2A12 (601), and CL-600-2B16 (601-3A,
601-3R, and 604 Variants) airplanes. 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-2022-0398.
This proposed AD was prompted by reports that during ALTSEL, ASEL,
or ALTS CAP mode, the flight guidance/autopilot does not account for
engine failure while capturing an altitude. The FAA is proposing this
AD to address a possible engine failure during or before a climb while
in ALTSEL, ASEL or ALTS CAP mode, which could cause the airspeed to
drop significantly below the safe operating speed. Prompt crew
intervention may be required to maintain a safe operating speed. See
the MCAI for additional background information.

Related Service Information Under 1 CFR Part 51

Bombardier has issued the following service information. This
service information contains a new AFM limitation and procedure for
operation during certain flight modes. These documents are distinct
since they apply to different airplane configurations. These
configurations may include the presence or absence of winglets,
incorporation of service bulletin 601-0300 which introduces an airspeed
limitation placard, and the type of engine installed on the airplane.

business or by the means identified in the ADDRESSES section.

FAA's Determination

These products have been approved by the aviation authority of
another country, and are 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 because the FAA evaluated all the relevant
information and determined the unsafe condition described previously is
likely to exist or develop on other products of these same type
designs.

Proposed Requirements of This NPRM

This proposed AD would require revising the existing AFM to provide
the flightcrew with a new limitation and procedure for operation during
flight in certain flight modes.

Differences Between This Proposed AD and the MCAI

This NPRM updates certain AFM revision levels identified in TCCA AD
CF-2020-02, and therefore identifies the complete, most recent service
information that will be incorporated by reference in the final rule.
Operators should note that Bombardier revised the ALTS CAP mode to (V)
ALTS CAP or
(V) ALTV CAP mode in a revision prior to the latest revisions of the
Bombardier Challenger 604/605/650 AFMs referenced in this AD.

Costs of Compliance

The FAA estimates that this proposed AD affects 133 airplanes of
U.S. registry. The FAA estimates the following costs to comply with
this proposed AD:

Estimated Costs for Required Actions

Labor cost
Parts cost
Cost per product
Cost on U.S. operators
1 work-hour x $85 per hour = $85
$0
$85
$11,305

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
implications 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) Would not affect intrastate aviation in Alaska, and
(3) Would not have a significant economic impact, positive or
negative, on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria
of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39

Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by
reference, Safety.

The Proposed Amendment

Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the
Administrator, the FAA proposes to amend 14 CFR part 39 as follows:

PART 39--AIRWORTHINESS DIRECTIVES
