Airworthiness Review Program, Compilation of Proposals: Availability and Invitation to Submit Comments
AGENCY: Federal Aviation Agency, DOT
ACTION: Notice of Availability and Invitation to Submit Comments
On February 15, 1974, the Federal Aviation Administration, by Notice 74-5 (39 FR 5785), invited all interested persons to submit proposals for consideration during the 1974-75 airworthiness regulations review. In that Notice, the FAA announced that it would make available a compilation of those proposals that are to be given further consideration as possible agenda items for the Airworthiness Review Conference (December 2-11, 1974) for comment by all interested persons.
DATES: Comments must be received not later than August 1, 1974.
The FAA hereby announces the availability of the compilation of proposals described in Notice 74-5. The compilation is being routinely distributed to all those who submitted proposals and to others who have expressed interest in the program. Other interested persons may obtain a copy of the compilation by contacting the Federal Aviation Administration, Flight Standards Service, Attention: Airworthiness Review Staff, AFS-77, 800 Independence Avenue, SW., Washington, D.C. 20591.
Interested persons are invited to submit whatever written data, views, or arguments they may wish concerning proposals included in the compilation. All comments should be submitted in duplicate to the Federal Aviation Administration, Flight Standards Service, Attention: Airworthiness Review Staff, AFS-77, 800 Independence Avenue, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20591. In order to receive proper consideration, comments must be received not later than August 1, 1974. Comments are specifically solicited on any possible environmental impact of the proposals. All comments received will be available in the rules docket, both before and after the closing date for comments, for examination by interested persons.
As stated in Notice 74-5, a copy of which is appended to the compilation, not all proposals contained in the compilation of proposals will necessarily be included in the Final Agenda. The disposition of proposals in this regard will depend, in large measure, on the comments received. In this connection, it should be noted that there are over one thousand proposals in the compilation. In consideration of the large volume of material involved, interested persons are urged to follow the guidelines for comments recommended in the preface to the compilation.
As Notice 74-5 also indicates, the proposals and related justifications included in the compilation should be viewed as working proposals for further consideration. They may not represent the full or final position of the identified proponent. The comments made on the proposals in response to this Notice and additional discussion and dialogue at the Airworthiness Review Conference will form the basis on which FAA will make a final determination of which items will be included in the Notice of Proposed Rule Making scheduled for issuance by May 30, 1975.
The compilation includes an enclosure of unprocessed proposals received after the April 15, 1974, closing date. The FAA was unable to process these proposals but wishes to make them available for whatever relevant information they may contain. Those proposals, and comments upon them, will only be processed as time allows. In this connection, it should be noted that it may not be possible to give consideration, in the development of the Final Agenda, to late comments received in response to this notice.
It should be noted that the FAA may elect to undertake rule-making procedures, separate from the Airworthiness Review, on issues pertaining to proposals contained in the compilation of proposals, or included in the Final Agenda. In such cases, the pertinent proposals may be removed from further consideration during the Airworthiness Review.
The Proposed Amendment
This notice is issued under the authority of section 313(a) of the Federal Aviation Act of 1958 (49 U.S.C. 1354(a) and of section 6(c) of the Department of Transportation Act (49 U.S.C. 1655(c)).
Issued in Washington, D.C., on May 22, 1974.
