FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background [Docket No. FAA–2010–0100; Amdt. Nos. 61–130A] On July 15, 2013, the FAA published a final rule entitled, ‘‘Pilot Certification and Qualification Requirements for Air Carrier Operations’’ (78 FR 42324). In that final rule, which became effective July 15, 2013, the FAA revised the aeronautical experience requirements for an airline transport pilot (ATP) certificate in § 61.159(a) by adding paragraph (a)(3) which requires pilots to obtain 50 hours in the class of airplane for the ATP certificate sought and by revising former paragraph (a)(5) to permit pilots to credit time in a flight simulation training device (FSTD) accomplished in approved training programs under parts 121, 135, and 141 toward the aeronautical experience requirements for the ATP certificate. Under the prior rule, only FSTD time accomplished as part of an approved training course in part 142 could be credited. RIN 2120–AJ67 Correction Pilot Certification and Qualification Requirements for Air Carrier Operations; Correction In the amendatory language, the FAA mistakenly directed that redesignated paragraph (a)(5) be revised to permit the FSTD time in parts 121, 135, and 141 to be credited. In fact, because the final rule added new paragraph (a)(3), the amendatory language should have directed that redesignated paragraph (a)(6) should be revised.

This amendment adopts miscellaneous amendments to the required IFR (instrument flight rules) altitudes and changeover points for certain Federal airways, jet routes, or direct routes for which a minimum or maximum en route authorized IFR altitude is prescribed. This regulatory action is needed because of changes occurring in the National Airspace System. These changes are designed to provide for the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace under instrument conditions in the affected areas. DATES: Effective 0901 UTC, August 22, 2013.

Box 25082, Oklahoma City, OK 73125) telephone: (405) 954–4164. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This amendment to part 95 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (14 CFR part 95) amends, suspends, or revokes IFR altitudes governing the operation of all aircraft in flight over a specified route or any portion of that route, as well as the changeover points (COPs) for Federal airways, jet routes, or direct routes as prescribed in part 95. SUMMARY: The Rule The specified IFR altitudes, when used in conjunction with the prescribed changeover points for those routes, ensure navigation aid coverage that is adequate for safe flight operations and free of frequency interference. The reasons and circumstances that create the need for this amendment involve matters of flight safety and operational efficiency in the National Airspace System, are related to published aeronautical charts that are essential to the user, and provide for the safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace. In addition, those various reasons or circumstances require making this amendment effective before the next scheduled charting and publication date of the flight information to assure its timely availability to the user. The effective date of this amendment reflects those considerations. In view of the close and immediate relationship between these regulatory changes and safety in air commerce, I find that notice and public procedure before adopting this amendment are impracticable and contrary to the public interest and that good cause exists for making the amendment effective in less than 30 days. Conclusion The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. It, therefore—(1) is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. For the same reason, the FAA certifies that this amendment will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On July 15, 2013, the FAA published a final rule entitled, ``Pilot 
Certification and Qualification Requirements for Air Carrier 
Operations'' (78 FR 42324). In that final rule, which became effective 
July 15, 2013, the FAA revised the aeronautical experience requirements 
for an airline transport pilot (ATP) certificate in Sec.  61.159(a) by 
adding paragraph (a)(3) which requires pilots to obtain 50 hours in the 
class of airplane for the ATP certificate sought and by revising former 
paragraph (a)(5) to permit pilots to credit time in a flight simulation 
training device (FSTD) accomplished in approved training programs under 
parts 121, 135, and 141 toward the aeronautical experience requirements 
for the ATP certificate. Under the prior rule, only FSTD time 
accomplished as part of an approved training course in part 142 could 
be credited.

Correction

    In the amendatory language, the FAA mistakenly directed that 
redesignated paragraph (a)(5) be revised to permit the FSTD time in 
parts 121, 135, and 141 to be credited. In fact, because the final rule 
added new paragraph (a)(3), the amendatory language should have 
directed that redesignated paragraph (a)(6) should be revised. 
Accordingly, the FAA is issuing this correction to

[[Page 44874]]

restore former paragraph (a)(4) \1\ which was inadvertently removed 
from the final rule.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Former Sec.  61.159(a)(4) [new paragraph (a)(5)] pertains to 
pilot in command flight time requirements.
