This action corrects the paragraph reference which describes the requisite qualifications to obtain a repairman certificate. This action also corrects the appendix references which describe requirements for altimeter system and altitude reporting equipment tests and inspections. The intent of this action is to ensure that the regulations are clear and accurate.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On August 9, 1979, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) published in the Federal Register (44 FR 46778) a final rule that amended 14 CFR 65.101 by designating the unnumbered paragraph as paragraph (a) and redesignating paragraphs (a) through (f) as paragraphs (a)(1) through (a)(6), respectively. However, the reference in paragraph (a)(6) to paragraph (c) was inadvertently not changed to reflect the redesignated numbering. This document makes the appropriate amendatory change to § 65.101(a)(6) to replace the incorrect reference (paragraph (c)) with the correct reference ( paragraph (a)(3)).

On August 18, 1989, the FAA published in the Federal Register (54 FR 34284) a final rule that included revisions to part 91, subpart E. One of the revisions was to redesignate § 91.171 (Altimeter system and altitude reporting equipment tests and inspections), as § 91.411. In making this change, the appendix references in paragraphs (a)(1) and (a)(2) were inadvertently reversed. That is, in paragraph (a)(1) we referenced appendix E, and in paragraph (a)(2), we referenced appendices E and F. However, the correct references are appendices E and F for paragraph (a)(1) and appendix E for paragraph (a)(2). This action revises § 91.411 to include the correct appendix references.

Technical Amendment

This technical amendment will change the paragraph reference in § 65.101(a)(6) from paragraph (c) to paragraph (a)(3). And, it will revise § 91.411 to reference appendices E and F in paragraph (a)(1) and appendix E in paragraph (a)(2).

These corrections to parts 65 and 91 will not impose any additional requirements on operators affected by these regulations.
