SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This document announces the availability of proposed FAA Order 8900.1 Volume 3, Chapter 63, Aircraft Dispatcher Certification Courses and Proposed Advisory Circular (AC) 65–XX (Number to be Determined), FAA-Approved Aircraft Dispatcher Certification Courses. Background The FAA has determined a need to establish formal policy related to FAAapproved Aircraft Dispatcher Certification Courses, operated in accordance with 14 CFR part 65, subpart C. As of the date of this notice there are 44 FAA-approved Aircraft Dispatcher Certification Courses currently operating. The lack of FAA policy related to the approval and oversight of these courses has led to a wide range of inconsistencies with respect to individual course approvals. The new guidance clarifies the requirements found in part 65, subpart C. The FAA’s determination of need to establish policy is also supported by public comment which the FAA PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 received to draft policy changes announced in docket number FAA– 2011–1149. The 2011 docket announced draft changes to FAA Order 8900.1, Volume 13, Chapter 3, which applies to Designated Aircraft Dispatcher Examiners (DADE). The 2011 draft policy introduced the FAA’s proposed requirements for the content of a Statement of Graduation provided by an Aircraft Dispatcher Certification Course operator in accordance with 14 CFR 65.70(d). Public comment to these proposed requirements pointed out that policy related to Aircraft Dispatcher Certification Course operators did not belong in a policy document related to DADEs. The comments suggested that requirements for a Statement of Graduation that are incumbent upon a course operator should be established someplace other than in a policy document related to DADES. The FAA agrees that policy related to Aircraft Dispatcher Certification Course Operators needs to be established outside of the policy related to DADEs. In light of the FAA’s determination and public comment received to docket number FAA–2011–1149, the FAA is providing this notice to provide the public with an opportunity to comment on the proposed new policy related to FAA-approved Aircraft Dispatcher Certification Courses. While the FAA generally does not request comment on internal orders, the agency has established a docket for public comments regarding this policy for inspectors in recognition of the interest of Aircraft Dispatcher Course Operators and applicants for an aircraft dispatcher certificate under part 65. The FAA has also placed in the docket, a copy of a draft revision to 8900.1, Volume 5, Chapter 5, Section 10, Aircraft Dispatcher Certification, for reference only. The agency will consider all comments received by December 22, 2014. Comments received after that date may be considered if consideration will not delay agency action on the review. A copy of the proposed order and AC is available for review in the assigned docket for the Order at https:// www.regulations.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This document announces the availability of 
proposed FAA Order 8900.1 Volume 3, Chapter 63, Aircraft Dispatcher 
Certification Courses and Proposed Advisory Circular (AC) 65-XX (Number 
to be Determined), FAA-Approved Aircraft Dispatcher Certification 
Courses.

Background

    The FAA has determined a need to establish formal policy related to 
FAA-approved Aircraft Dispatcher Certification Courses, operated in 
accordance with 14 CFR part 65, subpart C. As of the date of this 
notice there are 44 FAA-approved Aircraft Dispatcher Certification 
Courses currently operating. The lack of FAA policy related to the 
approval and oversight of these courses has led to a wide range of 
inconsistencies with respect to individual course approvals. The new 
guidance clarifies the requirements found in part 65, subpart C.
    The FAA's determination of need to establish policy is also 
supported by public comment which the FAA received to draft policy 
changes announced in docket number FAA-2011-1149. The 2011 docket 
announced draft changes to FAA Order 8900.1, Volume 13, Chapter 3, 
which applies to Designated Aircraft Dispatcher Examiners (DADE). The 
2011 draft policy introduced the FAA's proposed requirements for the 
content of a Statement of Graduation provided by an Aircraft Dispatcher 
Certification Course operator in accordance with 14 CFR 65.70(d). 
Public comment to these proposed requirements pointed out that policy 
related to Aircraft Dispatcher Certification Course operators did not 
belong in a policy document related to DADEs. The comments suggested 
that requirements for a Statement of Graduation that are incumbent upon 
a course operator should be established someplace other than in a 
policy document related to DADES. The FAA agrees that policy related to 
Aircraft Dispatcher Certification Course Operators needs to be 
established outside of the policy related to DADEs. In light of the 
FAA's determination and public comment received to docket number FAA-
2011-1149, the FAA is providing this notice to provide the public with 
an opportunity to comment on the proposed new policy related to FAA-
approved Aircraft Dispatcher Certification Courses.
    While the FAA generally does not request comment on internal 
orders, the agency has established a docket for public comments 
regarding this policy for inspectors in recognition of the interest of 
Aircraft Dispatcher Course Operators and applicants for an aircraft 
dispatcher certificate under part 65. The FAA has also placed in the 
docket, a copy of a draft revision to 8900.1, Volume 5, Chapter 5, 
Section 10, Aircraft Dispatcher Certification, for reference only. The 
agency will consider all comments received by December 22, 2014. 
Comments received after that date may be considered if consideration 
will not delay agency action on the review. A copy of the proposed 
order and AC is available for review in the assigned docket for the 
Order at https://www.regulations.gov.
