On September 17, 2003, the FAA published a final rule entitled, “Regulation of Fractional Aircraft Ownership Programs and On-Demand Operations” (68 FR 54520).

In that final rule the FAA updated and revised the regulations governing operations of aircraft in fractional ownership programs.

Technical Amendment

This technical amendment makes one revision to the final rule. The language in § 91.1091(f)(2) incorrectly uses the term “check pilot” when the term “flight instructor” should have been used. Accordingly, this amendment revises § 91.1091(f)(2).

Because the section title applies to flight instructors it is obvious that the use of the term “check pilot” in (f)(2) should have been “flight instructor”. This technical amendment corrects an incorrect term and we find good cause exists under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3) to make the amendment effective in less than 30 days.
