Final rule; technical amendment.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is making minor technical changes to a final rule published in the Federal Register on September 15, 2000 (65 FR 56192). That final rule amends the reporting requirements for air carriers and certificated domestic and foreign repair station operators concerning failures malfunctions, and defects of aircraft engines, systems, and components. In that final rule the FAA neglected to make conforming amendments to sections not amended by the final rule.
Effective on January 16, 2001.Start Further Info

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) published in the Federal Register of September 15, 2000 (65 FR 56192) a document that amended the regulations on reporting service difficulties. The FAA neglected to include a revision to 14 CFR 135.411 to clearly address the applicability of one newly adopted section to part 135 operations. When the provisions of § 135.415 were expanded into revised § 135.415 and new § 135.416, the appropriate changes to § 135.411 were not made to reflect the existence of the new § 135.416. The only change in this amendment is to add a reference to new § 135.416 to existing § 135.411 in two places. This document makes the appropriate amendatory change to clearly reflect that new § 135.416 as well as current §§ 134.415 and 135.417 apply to all operations under part 135. This amendment will not impose any additional restrictions on operators affected by these regulations.
The technical amendment will correct the omission of § 135.416 from the applicability paragraphs of § 135.411.Start List of Subjects
