Alternatively, it must be shown that such deployment is not hazardous to the occupant and will provide the required protection. 4. It must be shown that the inflatable restraint system is not susceptible to inadvertent deployment as a result of wear and tear or the inertial loads resulting from in-flight or ground maneuvers (including gusts and hard landings) that are likely to be experienced in service. 5. It must be extremely improbable for an inadvertent deployment of the restraint system to occur, or an inadvertent deployment must not impede the pilot’s ability to maintain control of the airplane or cause an unsafe condition (or hazard to the airplane). In addition, a deployed inflatable restraint must be at least as strong as a Technical Standard Order (C114) certificated belt and shoulder harness. 6. It must be shown that deployment of the inflatable restraint system is not hazardous to the occupant or will not result in injuries that could impede rapid egress. This assessment should include occupants whose restraint is loosely fastened. 7. It must be shown that an inadvertent deployment that could cause injury to a standing or sitting person is improbable. In addition, the restraint must also provide suitable visual warnings that would alert rescue personnel to the presence of an inflatable restraint system. 8. It must be shown that the inflatable restraint will not impede rapid egress of the occupants 10 seconds after its deployment. 9. To comply with HIRF and lightning requirements, the inflatable restraint system is considered a critical system since its deployment could have a hazardous effect on the airplane. 10. It must be shown that the inflatable restraints will not release hazardous quantities of gas or particulate matter into the cabin. 11. The inflatable restraint system installation must be protected from the effects of fire such that no hazard to occupants will result. 12. There must be a means to verify the integrity of the inflatable restraint activation system before each flight or it must be demonstrated to reliably operate between inspection intervals. 13. A life limit must be established for appropriate system components. 14. Qualification testing of the internal firing mechanism must be performed at vibration levels appropriate for a general aviation airplane.

The technical amendment was necessary because amendments in the National Air Tour Safety Standards final rule (72 FR 6884; Feb. 13, 2007) redefined terms used in the drug and alcohol testing regulations. In the technical amendment, we changed the language in several charts in part 121, appendix J.

Subsequently, BIS published a final rule on March 22, 2007 (72 FR 13440) that corrected the April 24, 2006 final rule, by removing certain references to Missile Technology controls and adjusting the scope of controls and license exceptions in certain Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs). In adjusting the scope and license exceptions in certain ECCNs, the March 22, 2007 final rule unintentionally narrowed the scope of the license exception for technology and software under restriction (License Exception TSR) for ECCNs 4D001 (specified ‘‘software’’) and 4E001 (specified E:\FR\FM\07JNR1.SGM 07JNR1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

A. Correction to Section References in Part 136 Subpart B

    On February 13, 2007, the FAA published the ``National Air Tour 
Safety Standards'' final rule (72 FR 6884) in which we designated the 
existing sections in part 136, consisting of Sec. Sec.  136.1 through 
136.11, as subpart B, consisting of Sec. Sec.  136.31 through 136.49. 
The FAA inadvertently did not update the section references in the text 
of those sections to reflect the new numbering. This document corrects 
that oversight.

B. Comments Against Part 135 Certification

    In the preamble to the February 13, 2007, final rule, on pages 
6891-6892, the FAA discussed comments that opposed our proposal to 
require commercial air tour operators to conduct their operations under 
part 135. We explained the regulatory basis for our final decision and, 
in the second full paragraph of column 1 on page 6892, we described the 
regulations pertaining to the carriage of passengers under different 
categories of airworthiness certification. Upon review, we have 
determined that the first sentence of that paragraph was correct; 
however, the second sentence was not correct because we inadvertently 
omitted the words ``for compensation or hire'' when describing 
operations carrying passengers in aircraft with an ``Experimental 
Category'' airworthiness certificate. We therefore correct the preamble 
of the final rule on page 6892, column 1, the second full paragraph, by 
removing the sentence that reads, ``An `Experimental Category' 
certificate does not allow passengers at all.''

C. EAA Young Eagles Program

    During development of the ``National Air Tour Safety Standards'' 
final rule, we believed that the Experimental Aircraft Association 
(EAA) used its FAA-issued exemptions for all flights conducted under 
its Young Eagles program. Since publication of the final rule, however, 
we have learned that EAA uses its exemptions only for those few Young 
Eagles flights that are flown for compensation or hire. We therefore 
clarify that the final rule applies to only Young Eagles flights that 
are flown for compensation or hire, but the rule does not apply to 
other Young Eagles flights.
