However, in accordance with title 49 of the United States Code § 44704(a)(5), the FAA can make available upon request engineering data in possession of the FAA relating to an STC if the FAA can determine that the STC has been inactive for 3 or more years, and using due diligence the FAA is unable to locate the owner of record or the owner of record's heir. There has been no activity on these STCs for more than 3 years.
