AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of Transportation (DOT).
ACTION: Final rule.

SUMMARY: We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) to supersede AD 91-18-19, which
applies to certain Hawker Beechcraft Corporation (Hawker) (Type Certificate Numbers 3A15, 3A16,
and A23CE formerly held by Raytheon Aircraft Company; formerly held by Beech Aircraft
Corporation) Models 58, 58A, 58P, 58PA, 58TC, 58TCA, 95-B55, 95-B55A, A36, A36TC, B36TC,
E55, E55A, F33A, and V35B airplanes. AD 91-18-19 currently requires you to do a one-time
inspection of the pilot and copilot shoulder harnesses for an incorrect washer and replace any
incorrect washer with the correct washer. Since we issued AD 91-18-19,
we have found that the applicability of AD 91-18-19 was incorrectly stated when the Model A36TC
airplane was omitted from the Applicability section. Consequently, this AD would retain the actions
and the serial number (SN) applicability of AD 91-18-19 and realign the SN applicability for Models
A36TC and B36TC airplanes. We are issuing this AD to detect and correct an incorrect washer
installed in the pilot and copilot shoulder harnesses. This incorrect part could result in a
malfunctioning shoulder harness. Such a malfunction could lead to occupant injury.
DATES: This AD becomes effective on January 8, 2010.
As of October 21, 1991 (56 FR 42224, August 27, 1991), the Director of the Federal Register
approved the incorporation by reference of Beechcraft Mandatory Service Bulletin No. 2394, dated
December 1990, listed in this AD.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
Discussion
On August 20, 2009, we issued a proposal to amend part 39 of the Federal Aviation Regulations
(14 CFR part 39) to include an AD that would apply to certain Hawker (Type Certificate Numbers
3A15, 3A16, and A23CE formerly held by Raytheon Aircraft Company; formerly held by Beech
Aircraft Corporation) Models 58, 58A, 58P, 58PA, 58TC, 58TCA, 95-B55, 95-B55A, A36, A36TC,
B36TC, E55, E55A, F33A, and V35B airplanes. This proposal was published in the Federal Register
as a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) on August 28, 2009 (74 FR 44311). The NPRM
proposed to supersede AD 91-18-19 (56 FR 42224, August 27, 1991) with a new AD that would
retain the actions and the SN applicability of AD 91-18-19 and realign the SN applicability for
Models A36TC and B36TC airplanes.
Comments
We provided the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We received no
comments on the proposal or on the determination of the cost to the public.
2
We have carefully reviewed the available data and determined that air safety and the public
interest require adopting the AD as proposed except for minor editorial corrections. We have
determined that these minor corrections:
• Are consistent with the intent that was proposed in the NPRM for correcting the unsafe condition;
and
• Do not add any additional burden upon the public than was already proposed in the NPRM.
Costs of Compliance
We estimate that this AD affects 4,792 airplanes in the U.S. registry.
We estimate the following costs to do the inspection:
Labor Cost
Parts Cost
Total Cost Per
Airplane
Total Cost on U.S.
Operators

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 AD.
Regulatory Findings
We have 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); 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.
We prepared a summary of the costs to comply with this AD (and other information as included
in the Regulatory Evaluation) and placed it in the AD Docket. You may get a copy of this summary
by sending a request to us at the address listed under ADDRESSES. Include ''Docket No. FAA-2009-
0797; Directorate Identifier 2009-CE-032-AD'' in your request.
List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 39
Air transportation, Aircraft, Aviation safety, Incorporation by reference, Safety.
Adoption of the Amendment
Accordingly, under the authority delegated to me by the Administrator, the Federal Aviation
Administration amends part 39 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 39) as follows:

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 removing Airworthiness Directive (AD) 91-18-19, Amendment 39-
8022 (56 FR 42224, August 27, 1991), and adding the following new AD:

harnesses on certain Beech 33, 35, 36, 55, 58, and 95 series airplanes. We are issuing this AD to

(1) Inspect the washers on the “D” ring
of the pilot and copilot shoulder
harnesses for correct metal, inner and
outer diameter, and thickness.
(h) You must use Beechcraft Mandatory Service Bulletin No. 2394, dated December 1990, to do
the actions required by this AD, unless the AD specifies otherwise. AD 91-18-19 (56 FR 42224;
August 27, 1991), which is superseded by this airworthiness directive, incorporated this service
information by reference as Beech Service Bulletin No. 2394, dated December 1990.
Material Incorporated by Reference
(g) In reviewing the docket and project files, we found no AMOCs submitted for AD 91-18-19.
Since there are no AMOCs approved for AD 91-18-19 to approve for this AD, transfer of AMOCs to
this AD does not apply.
(f) The Manager, Wichita Aircraft Certification Office (ACO), FAA, has the authority to approve
AMOCs for this AD, if requested using the procedures found in 14 CFR 39.19. Send information to
Attn: Steve Potter, Aerospace Engineer, ACE-118W, Wichita Aircraft Certification Office (ACO),
1801 Airport Road, Room 100, Wichita, Kansas 67209; telephone: (316) 946-4124; fax: (316) 946-
4107. Before using any approved AMOC on any airplane to which the AMOC applies, notify your
appropriate principal inspector (PI) in the FAA Flight Standards District Office (FSDO), or lacking a
PI, your local FSDO.
Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs)

incorrect part could result in a malfunctioning shoulder harness. Such a malfunction could lead to
occupant injury.
