On June 12, 2012, a summary of the AOPA/EAA petition was published in theFederal Register(77 FR 35103). Comments to that document were to be received on or before July 2, 2012.
By letter dated June 18, 2012, AOPA and EAA requested that the FAA extend the comment period for an additional 70 days. The petitioner states that the additional time is necessary to ensure the public has adequate time to provide substantive comments.
Reopening Comment Period
In accordance with SS 11.47(c) of Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations, the FAA has reviewed the petition made by AOPA/EAA. The FAA has determined that reopening of the comment period is consistent with the public interest, and that good cause exists for taking this action.
Accordingly, the comment period for Docket No. FAA-2012-0350 is reopened until September 14, 2012.
Issued in Washington, DC, on July 3, 2012.
