SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

A number of inadvertent editing errors in the airworthiness standards of § 33.87 have been identified by the FAA. Some errors apply to the standards for one engine inoperative (OEI) ratings for rotorcraft turbine engines. Others are simply plain language errors. This technical amendment corrects those errors in § 33.87. None of the corrections are substantive in nature, and none will impose any additional burden on any person.
