FAA Extends Time To Ask Questions about Flight and Duty Time Rule

 - April 12, 2012, 3:40 PM

The FAA has extended until June 4 the period to submit “clarifying questions” about the final rule that amends the existing flight, duty and rest regulations applicable to certificate holders and their flight crewmembers. In the rule, the FAA created a new Part 117, which replaces the existing flight, duty and rest regulations contained in Part 121 Subparts Q, R and S. As part of this rulemaking, the FAA also applied the new Part 117 to certain Part 91 operations.
