"The comments included in this document are the culmination of weeks of work by the committee of members who helped with the review of member comments, review of the NPRM itself, and conecerns that have been voiced by a wide variety of other industry interests.  We are hopeful that the FAA will carefully review these, and other comments by other industry organizations, companies, and individuals, prior to making any final rulemaking that will certainly have a long lasting effect on the aviation industry as a whole," said Executive Director, Jason Blair.
