SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On January 4, 2012, the FAA published a final rule entitled ‘‘Flightcrew Member Duty and Rest Requirements’’ (77 FR 330). In that rule, the FAA created a new part, part 117, which replaced the then-existing flight, duty, and rest regulations for part 121 passenger operations. As part of this rulemaking, the FAA also applied the new part 117 to certain part 91 operations, and it permitted all-cargo operations operating under part 121 to voluntarily opt into the part 117 flight, duty, and rest regulations. After the final rule was published, the FAA discovered several issues requiring a technical correction in the regulatory text of the rule. These issues, and the corresponding technical corrections, are as follows. Technical Corrections 14 CFR Parts 117 and 121 SUMMARY: DATES: 1. Certain Domestic All-Cargo Operations (§ 121.470(b)) Under the existing rules, 14 CFR 121.470(b) states that ‘‘[c]ertificate holders conducting scheduled operations entirely within the States of Alaska or Hawaii with airplanes having a passenger seat configuration of more than 30 seats, excluding each crewmember seat, or a payload capacity of more than 7,500 pounds’’ may elect to comply with the flag flight, duty, and rest rules of part 121. The final rule that created 14 CFR part 117 provides that all-cargo operations that do not choose to operate under part 117 will be able to operate under the same flight, duty, and rest rules that they operated under prior to the creation of part 117.1 However, the final rule inadvertently changed the 1 See Flightcrew Member Duty and Rest Requirements Final Rule, 77 FR 330, 336–337 (Jan. 4, 2012). PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 69287 regulatory text of § 121.470(b) to apply to airplanes with a passenger seat configuration of ‘‘30 seats or fewer . . . and a payload capacity of 7,500 pounds or less.’’ 2 Because this was not the intent of the final rule, § 121.470(b) has been corrected so that all-cargo operations that previously operated pursuant to § 121.470(b) can continue to do so after the final rule becomes effective.3 2. Conflict Between the Definitions in § 117.3 and Other Definitions The regulatory text in § 117.3 has been corrected to clarify that if there is a conflict in definitions, the definitions in § 117.3 control only for purposes of the flight and duty limitations and rest requirements of part 117. 3. Reporting Requirements of § 117.11(c) Section 117.11(b) permits a flightcrew member to exceed the flight-time limits of § 117.11(a) and § 117.23(b) in certain circumstances. To ensure that the FAA is notified in all instances in which the § 117.11(b) extension is utilized, § 117.11(c) has been corrected to clarify that reporting is required if the extension in § 117.11(b) is used to exceed either the limits of § 117.11 or § 117.23(b). 4. Reporting Requirements of § 117.19(b)(4) Similar to § 117.11(b), § 117.19(b) permits a flightcrew member to exceed the flight-duty-period limits specified in Tables B and C and in § 117.23(c). To ensure that the FAA is notified in all instances in which the § 117.19(b) extension is utilized, § 117.19(b)(4) has been corrected to clarify that reporting is required if the extension in § 117.19(b) is used to exceed either the limits of Tables B/C or § 117.23. We note that while reporting is not required if the limits of Table B or C are exceeded by 30 minutes or less, the corrected § 117.19(b) requires certificate holder reporting if the limits of § 117.23 are exceeded by any amount of time. 5. Cumulative Limitations in § 117.23(b) The cumulative flight-time limitations in § 117.23(c) have been corrected to clarify that a flightcrew member cannot accept an assignment that would cause that crewmember’s total flight duty period to exceed either 60 hours in any 2 Id. at 403 (emphasis added). FAA acknowledges that § 121.470(b) governs scheduled operations and § 110.2 defines a scheduled operation as a ‘‘passenger-carrying operation.’’ Consequently, an all-cargo operation may not be able to operate under § 121.470(b) as currently written. The FAA is examining this issue and may address it in a future regulatory action. 3 The E:\FR\FM\19NOR1.SGM 19NOR1

change. The NRC did not receive any comments that warranted withdrawal 
of the direct final rule. Therefore, this direct final rule was 
effective as scheduled.
