History

A Notice published in the Federal Register (81 FR 72145, October 19, 2016), entitled “Applicability of National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) to Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Review of Airport Wildlife Hazard Management Plans” requested clarification of Wildlife Hazard Management Plan (WHMP) Program and Policy Guidance Letter 92 issued in 2006. The clarification concerns how federal environmental laws apply to FAA approval of a new or updated WHMP.

The notice requested that interested parties submit written comments by November 18, 2016. On November 18, 2016, an airport industry association requested an extension to the comment period. After careful consideration, the FAA has decided to extend the comment period until January 17, 2017.
