On December 29, 2005, the FAA published a final rule (70 FR 76974) that withdrew a final rule entitled Service Difficulty Reports. As part of that withdrawal, the FAA should have removed any cross-reference to § 135.416 that appeared elsewhere in the regulation, since that section was removed as part of withdrawing the Service Difficulty Reports rule.
To correct this oversight, this action removes references to § 135.416 from paragraphs (a)(1) and (a)(2) of § 135.411.
The technical amendment will make a minor editorial correction to § 135.411, paragraphs (a)(1) and (a)(2).
Justification for Immediate Adoption
Because this action removes references to a section that no longer exists, the FAA finds that notice and public comment under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) is unnecessary. For the same reason, the FAA finds that good cause exists under 5 U.S.C. 553(d) for making this rule effective upon publication.Start List of Subjects
