SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On April 28, 2014, the FAA published for public comment a proposal to amend its policy concerning the impacts of certain structures during aeronautical studies conducted under Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations Part 77. Specifically, the FAA proposed to consider the impact of one engine out procedures when studying new structures or modifications to existing structures at certain airports that have a defined departure area for each runway end supporting commercial service operations. FAA is proposing to factor these impacts into the aeronautical study process because the encroachment of airspace by structures surrounding certain airports appears to be significantly limiting options available to airlines to establish OEI procedures. Registration for the meeting is required by June 23, 2014. To register, email 7-ACE-Federal-Registry-Notice@faa.gov with your name and the company or organization you are representing. In a response email, the attendees will be provided with instructions on how to connect to the online meeting and the teleconference. In the public meeting, the FAA will provide a slide presentation to further explain the proposed policy. Participants will be able to submit questions utilizing the instant message application of the online tool. In addition, the FAA is extending the time period for which the public may submit written comments for an additional 30 days.
