Deadline Closing on FAA Designee Proposal

 - March 23, 2007, 12:10 PM

Comments are due May 24 on the FAA’s proposal to replace the current designee program for companies and organizations with a new one that expands the functions that designees may perform, permits non-FAA-certified individuals and companies to become designees and rolls existing organizational designee categories into one “organization designation authorization” (ODA). Individual designees such as check airmen, airworthiness officials and engineering representatives would not be affected by this proposal. At press time, only two individuals have submitted comments.
