The former “American Air Almanac” was created to meet the general requirements for air navigation in the United Kingdom, the United States, and Canada. In 14 CFR 1.1 the definition of night refers to twilight times as published in the “American Air Almanac”. The “American Air Almanac” publication ceased in 1953 and is currently called the “Air Almanac”. This technical amendment corrects the title of the publication.
This technical amendment makes one revision to the codified text § 1.1. The language in § 1.1incorrectly uses the title “American Air Almanac” when it should read “Air Almanac”.
Because the change in this technical amendment results in no substantive change, we find good cause exists under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3) to make the amendment effective in less than 30 days.Start List of Subjects
