Discussion

On October 6, 2005, the FAA published in the Federal Register the Notices of availability for 11 of the 12 ACs related to the “Enhanced Airworthiness Program for Airplane Systems” proposed rule. The close of comment period date for these notices is December 5, 2005. The FAA published the Notice of availability for the twelfth AC, AC 120-XX, in the Federal Register on October 18, 2005. The close of comment period date for this AC is December 19, 2005. The proposed rule (70 FR 58508), which also was published on October 6, 2005, contains a close of comment period date of February 3, 2006. The FAA's intent was to have the same close of comment period date for the draft ACs and proposed rule.
