Simulator proposal reopened for comments

 - March 16, 2007, 10:43 AM

The comment window has been reopened until March 11 on the FAA’s proposal to revise the technical and operational requirements for simulators and flight-training devices, as well as consolidate them under one new rule. The proposal was published in September 2002 and the original comment period closed February 24 last year. But it has been reopened to give the public time to comment on recommendations from an FAA/industry rulemaking advisory committee. The committee was formed last July to resolve issues expressed in more than 80 comments submitted on the proposal.
