FAA Extends 145 Comment Period
August 17, 2012
On Aug. 17, the Federal Register published the FAA’s grant of an additional 90 days to the comment period of the agency’s rewrite of part 145 rules. Those wishing to comment on the proposed rule changes now have until November 19.
The extension of the comment period was in response to a letter from ARSA and eight aviation industry associations requesting more time to comment on the notice of proposed rulemaking, stressing the significant operational and financial ramifications for the small business dominated repair station industry. The groups also highlighted the difficulty that many repair stations face in preparing to comment on such a robust rulemaking proposal.
ARSA will continue to work in concert with its allies to solicit and compile industry comments. The additional time allows for a more comprehensive response that will undoubtedly improve any final rulemaking.
