FRAX NPRM comments pushed to November 16

 - October 2, 2007, 11:11 AM

The FAA extended to November 16 the comment period on its notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to regulate fractional aircraft ownership operations. Just before the original comment period was about to close on October 16, NBAA and the National Air Transportation Association requested a 30-day extension. The associations told the FAA that the September 11 aftermath distracted the aviation community and it would need more time to refocus its attention to the NPRM. In its notice extending the comment time, the FAA suggested that the NPRM may need changes, saying the events of September 11 “also raise safety issues that may need to be addressed during the comment period.”
