Background

    On July 15, 2008 (73 FR 40652), the FAA published a notice 
requesting comments on proposed changes to FAA Order 8130.2F and 
Advisory Circular (AC) 20-27G, as well as comments on the percentage of 
fabrication and assembly that must be completed by an amateur builder 
to obtain an experimental airworthiness certificate for an amateur-
built aircraft; The comment close date of August 15, 2008 was not 
specifically posted in that notice and was only available on the FAA 
website, also commenters requested more review time. As a result, the 
FAA decided to extend the comment period by 45 days to September 30, 
2008. However, the reference materials (Order and AC) may have been 
inadvertently removed from the FAA's Web site for several days during 
the full 45 day comment period (August 15 until September 30). 
Therefore, the FAA has decided to reopen the comment period for an 
additional 45 days. This extension will allow the public to participate 
in the process and provide the FAA with more in-depth comments on the 
proposed changes.
