SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On February 2, 2005, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) published the “Aging Airplane Safety” final rule; disposition of comments. The provisions of that rule included requirements for certain airplanes to undergo inspections and records reviews at specified intervals. The FAA discussed in the preamble to the rule that we were amending §§ 121.368 and 129.33 to remove the requirement for operators to provide the current status of both Corrosion Prevention and Control Programs and the inspections and procedures required under § 121.370a as separate items. To accomplish this, we intended to remove subparagraphs i, ii, and iii of §§ 121.368(d)(8) and 129.33(c)(8). Because of errors in the amendatory language, the subparagraphs were Start Printed Page 23936incorrectly retained in the rule language. This document corrects the amendatory language to remove those subparagraphs.
