SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

After issuing the March 31, 2008, Notice of Proposed Rulemaking concerning unmanned aircraft accidents, the NTSB discovered that a problem existed with the Web site, available at http://www.regulations.gov, that the NTSB listed in the Notice as one mechanism by which it would receive public comments. In particular, the NTSB subsequently determined that commenters were unable to submit comments through that Web site. The Start Printed Page 49156NTSB has arranged for this problem to be corrected and verified that commenters may now access the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking and submit comments via http://www.regulations.gov. As such, the NTSB is allowing the comment period for the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to remain open until September 30, 2008. The NTSB notes that it received several comments via facsimile and postal mail; commenters who submitted comments via facsimile or postal mail need not resubmit them.
