SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On July 15, 2008 (73 FR 40652), the FAA published a notice requesting comments on proposed changes to FAA Order 8130.2F and Advisory Circular (AC) 20-27G, as well as comments on the percentage of fabrication and assembly that must be completed by an amateur builder to obtain an experimental airworthiness certificate for an amateur-built aircraft. The comment close date of August 15, 2008 was not specifically posted in that notice and was only available on the FAA Web site. Because some interested parties may not have web access and, therefore, may not have been aware of the original comment deadline, the FAA has decided to extend the comment period by 45 days to September 30, 2008, and to publish this announcement in the Federal Register. This extension will also allow more time for the public to participate and provide the FAA with more in-depth comments on the proposed changes.
