On February 7, 2006, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued Proposed Grant of Exemption; Ameriflight, Inc. (71 FR 6307, 02/07/2006). Comments to that document were to be received on or before March 9, 2006.
By letter dated March 6, 2006, ALPA requested that the FAA extend the comment period for this proposed exemption for a period of 30 days. The FAA concurs with ALPA's request for an extension of the comment period. The comment period, however, closed on March 9, 2006. Additionally, the FAA believes that a 30-day extension would be excessive, thus, it will reopen the comment period for 15 days.
Reopening of Comment Period

ALPA has shown a substantive interest in the proposed exemption and good cause for the extension. The FAA also has determined that the 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 the proposed grant of exemption; Ameriflight, Inc.; Docket No. FAA-2005-20109 is reopened until April 3, 2006.Start Signature
