Most commenters express concerns about the unavailability of appropriate service information and the limited number of compliance methods. In addition, several commenters suggest alternative methods of compliance, but do not provide any specific details. It is our intent to address the identified unsafe condition in a timely manner, with minimum disruption to industry, and maximum flexibility in methods of compliance. We encourage interested parties to continue to evaluate the proposal and to submit additional comments with more specific details concerning issues that the FAA may need to evaluate before finalizing its decision of the proposal. We have determined that such input may be beneficial before adoption of a final rule. As a result, we have decided to reopen the comment period for 90 days to receive additional comments. No part of the regulatory information has been changed; therefore, the NPRM is not republished in the Federal Register. Issued in Renton, Washington, on November 10, 2005.
