ADs, SAIBs To Be Available Only by E-mail
The FAA will transition to e-mail distribution of ADs and special airworthiness information bulletins (SAIBs) and eliminate mailed paper versions. Starting next month, interested parties will be able to sign up on the FAA’s RGL Web site (http://rgl.faa.gov/) to receive ADs and SAIBs via e-mail. The agency plans to phase out paper copies by July. For now, the agency will continue to mail or fax emergency ADs, but it is working on a method to deliver them electronically in the future. The FAA also will discontinue the emergency AD subscription service and SAIB service that is currently available.
