Carl N. Johnson, General Aviation and Commercial Division, Flight Standards Service, Federal Aviation Administration, 800 Independence Avenue SW., Washington, DC 20591; telephone: (202) 385-9600; facsimile: (202) 385-9597.
Background: This advisory circular (AC) provides updated information on the application of the statutory requirements for public aircraft operations (PAO) and FAA policy regarding the use of contract operators. This AC is not mandatory and does not constitute a regulation. Nothing in this AC changes the requirement to comply with the statute.
On March 23, 2011, the FAA published a Notice of Policy Regarding Civil Aircraft Operators Providing Contract Support to Government Entities (Public Aircraft Operations) (76 FR 16349). This advisory circular provides additional information on the application of that policy.
The agency will consider all comments received by April 13, 2012. Comments received after that date may be considered if consideration will not delay publication of the advisory circular. A copy of the advisory circular is available for review in the assigned docket at http://www.regulations.gov.
Issued in Washington, DC, on February 7, 2012.
John M. Allen,
Director, Flight Standards Service.
