This fall, a jury issued a verdict that Trinity made a false or fraudulent claim to FHWA when it sought the eligibility determination for the ET-Plus. Additionally, a number of parties have raised concerns about the in-service performance of the ET-Plus and the potential variability in the dimensions of installed units of the ET-Plus.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

[[Page 77595]]

Background

    The National Parks Air Tour Management Act of 2000 (the Act) was 
enacted on April 5, 2000, as Public Law 106-181. The Act required the 
establishment of the advisory group within 1 year after its enactment. 
The NPOAG was established in March 2001. The advisory group is 
comprised of a balanced group of representatives of general aviation, 
commercial air tour operations, environmental concerns, and Native 
American tribes. The Administrator of the FAA and the Director of NPS 
(or their designees) serve as ex officio members of the group. 
Representatives of the Administrator and Director serve alternating 1-
year terms as chairman of the advisory group.
    In accordance with the Act, the advisory group provides ``advice, 
information, and recommendations to the Administrator and the Director-
    (1) On the implementation of this title [the Act] and the 
amendments made by this title;
    (2) On commonly accepted quiet aircraft technology for use in 
commercial air tour operations over a national park or tribal lands, 
which will receive preferential treatment in a given air tour 
management plan;
    (3) On other measures that might be taken to accommodate the 
interests of visitors to national parks; and
    (4) At the request of the Administrator and the Director, safety, 
environmental, and other issues related to commercial air tour 
operations over a national park or tribal lands.''

Membership

    The NPOAG ARC is made up of one member representing general 
aviation, three members representing the commercial air tour industry, 
four members representing environmental concerns, and two members 
representing Native American interests. Current members of the NPOAG 
ARC are as follows:
    The current NPOAG consists of Heidi Williams representing general 
aviation; Alan Stephen, Mark Francis, and Matthew Zuccaro representing 
commercial air tour operators; Michael Sutton and Dick Hingson 
representing environmental interests with two open seats; and Rory 
Majenty and Martin Begaye representing Native American interests. Mr. 
Majenty's 3-year membership expires on April 2, 2015.

Selection

    In order to retain balance within the NPOAG ARC, the FAA and NPS 
are seeking candidates interested in filling the two current open seats 
and Mr. Majenty's soon to be expiring seat. The two open seats to be 
filled will represent environmental concerns and the one upcoming 
opening will represent Native American interests. The FAA and NPS 
invite persons interested in representing environmental concerns or 
Native American interests on the ARC to contact Mr. Keith Lusk (contact 
information is written above in FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT). 
Requests to serve on the ARC must be made to Mr. Lusk in writing and 
postmarked or emailed on or before January 30, 2015. The request should 
indicate whether or not you are a member of an association or group 
related to environmental issues or a Native American tribe or have 
another affiliation with issues relating to aircraft flights over 
national parks. The request should also state what expertise you would 
bring to the NPOAG ARC as related to these issues and concerns. The 
term of service for NPOAG ARC members is 3 years. Current members may 
re-apply for another term.
    On June 18, 2010, President Obama signed a Presidential Memorandum 
directing agencies in the Executive Branch not to appoint or re-appoint 
federally registered lobbyists to advisory committees and other boards 
and commissions. Therefore, before appointing an applicant to serve on 
the NPOAG, the FAA and NPS will require the prospective candidate to 
certify that they are not a federally registered lobbyist.
