Petitions for Exemption Docket No.: FAA–2005–21913. Petitioner: Professional Aviation Maintenance Association. Section of 14 CFR Affected: 14 CFR 65.93(a) Inspection Authorization: Renewal. Description of Relief Sought: The Professional Aviation Maintenance Association (PAMA) requests this exemption to permit a 15-day extension from March 31 to April 15 for attendees of the PAMA convention to submit evidence of compliance with § 65.91(c)(1) through (4). PAMA requests this exemption for 10 years, through 2015. Because of scheduling events beyond PAMA’s control, the PAMA 2006 Aviation Maintenance Symposium, and PAMA’s extensive technical education programming, much of which is approved training for Inspection Authorization (IA) renewal, will be held March 28–30, 2006. Many potential attendees have already expressed concern that they will not be able to attend for purposes of IA renewal because of the insufficient time to provide the evidence of their training to their respective Flight Standards District Office before the end of March. Inspection Authorization renewal training is an important reason why many maintenance professionals attend PAMA’s annual Symposium.

Comments Invited: Interested persons are invited to submit such written data, views, or arguments, as they may desire. Communications should identify the consensus standard number and be submitted to the address specified above. All communications received on or before the closing date for comments will be forwarded to ASTM International Committee F37 for consideration. The standard may be changed in light of the comments received. The FAA will address all comments received during the recurring review of the consensus standard and will participate in the consensus standard revision process. Background: Under the provisions of the Sport Pilot and Light-Sport Aircraft rule, and revised Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A–119, ‘‘Federal Participation in the Development and Use of Voluntary Consensus Standards and in Conformity Assessment Activities’’, dated February 10, 1998, industry and the FAA have been working with ASTM International to develop consensus standards for light-sport aircraft. These consensus standards satisfy the FAA’s goal for airworthiness certification and a verifiable minimum safety level for light-sport aircraft. Instead of developing airworthiness standards through the rulemaking process, the FAA participates as a member of Committee F37 in developing these standards. The use of the consensus standard process assures government and industry discussion and agreement on appropriate standards for the required level of safety. Comments on Previous Notices of Availability In the Notice of Availability (NOA) issued on February 16, 2005, and published in the Federal Register on March 3, 2005, the FAA asked for public comments on the 15 consensus standards accepted by that NOA. The comment period closed on May 2, 2005. The preamble to the Sport Pilot and Light-Sport Aircraft Rule states, ‘‘If comments from the public are received as a result of the Notice of Availability, the FAA will address them during its recurring review of the consensus standards and participation in the consensus standards revision process.’’ And— ‘‘The FAA will respond to comments on the consensus standards in this revision process.’’ ASTM International Committee F37 examined the public comments received VerDate jul<14>2003 19:40 Jul 26, 2005 Jkt 205001 on these 15 standards during the May 2005 committee meeting held in Reno, Nevada. The committee determined the comments did not warrant or justify any changes or revisions to the standards. In the NOA issued on April 7, 2005, and published in the Federal Register on April 18, 2005, the FAA asked for public comments on the one consensus standard accepted by that NOA. The comment period closed on June 17, 2005. No comments were received on that consensus standard. Consensus Standards in This Notice of Availability The FAA has reviewed the standards presented in this NOA for compliance with the regulatory requirements of the rule. Any light-sport aircraft issued a special light-sport airworthiness certificate, which has been designed, manufactured, operated and maintained, in accordance with this and previously accepted ASTM consensus standards provides the public with the appropriate level of safety established under the regulations. Manufacturers who choose to produce these aircraft and certificate these aircraft under 14 CFR part 21, 21.190 or 21.191 are subject to the applicable consensus standard requirements. The FAA maintains a listing of all accepted standards at afs600.faa.gov. The Revised Consensus Standards and Effective Period of Use The following previously accepted consensus standards have been revised, and this Notice of Availability is accepting the later revisions. Either the previous revisions or the later revisions may be used for the initial certification of Special Light-Sport Aircraft until November 1, 2005. This overlapping period of time will allow aircraft that have started the initial certification process using the previous revision levels to complete that process. After November 1, 2005, manufacturers must use the later revisions and must identify these later revisions in the Statement of Compliance for initial certification of Special Light-Sport Aircraft unless the FAA publishes a specific notification otherwise. a.

(Continental Tire) has determined that certain tires that it produced do not comply with S6.5 of 49 CFR 571.119, Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 119, ‘‘New pneumatic tires for vehicles other than passenger cars.’’ Continental Tire has filed an appropriate report pursuant to 49 CFR Part 573, ‘‘Defect and Noncompliance Reports.’’ Pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 30118(d) and 30120(h), Continental Tire has petitioned for an exemption from the notification and remedy requirements of 49 U.S.C. Chapter 301 on the basis that this noncompliance is inconsequential to motor vehicle safety. This notice of receipt of Continental Tire’s petition is published under 49 U.S.C. 30118 and 30120 and does not represent any agency decision or other exercise of judgment concerning the merits of the petition. Affected are a total of approximately 430 tires produced on May 24, 2005. One requirement of S6.5 of FMVSS No. 119, tire markings, is that the tire identification shall comply with 49 CFR Part 574, ‘‘Tire Identification and Recordkeeping,’’ which includes the marking requirements of 574.5(b) DOT size code, and 574.5(c) DOT tire type. The subject tires are incorrectly marked for both size code and tire type. The markings read ‘‘A3 3T 1WP XXXX’’ when they should read ‘‘A3 55 1N1 XXXX.’’ Continental Tire explains: [T]he curing mold used in the production of the tires was being serviced. During the service, the interchangeable plugs that contain the DOT size and type information came out of the mold. The individual replacing the plugs inserted plugs engraved with the incorrect information. The noncompliance was discovered after 430 tires had been cured in this mold. Continental Tire believes that the noncompliance is inconsequential to motor vehicle safety and that no corrective action is warranted. Continental Tire states that ‘‘[a]ll other sidewall identification markings and safety information are correct, referring to recognizable size markings and load carrying capacities. A consumer or dealer examining the DOT Code could still determine the correct PO 00000 Frm 00118 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 43507 manufacturing plant and correct manufacturing date.’’ Interested persons are invited to submit written data, views, and arguments on the petition described above.
