ARSA Pushes for Extension or Withdrawal of Continental Motors NPRM
On Aug. 30, ARSA and Savvy Aircraft Maintenance Management, Inc.
the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) submit objective evidence to support its proposed airworthiness directive (AD) regarding Continental Motors, Inc. Reciprocating Engines (
Docket No. FAA-2012-0002
) and either extend the comment period by 120 days or withdraw the rule until such information can be placed in the docket.
The groups contend that, although the agency includes engineering data, no evidence of the FAA's deliberations or objective standards supporting its statements were present and the documents required to comply with the proposed action were not appropriately incorporated by reference.
Additionally, ARSA pointed out that the proposed rule lacked elements for compliance with the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act and the Regulatory Flexibility Act, including demonstrating the action will have minimal significant economic impact on small businesses.
Stay tuned to the ARSA Dispatch and the hotline for news of the FAA's response.
