14 CFR Part 77
[Docket No. FAA-2006-25002; Amendment No. 77-13-A]
Safe, Efficient Use and Preservation of the Navigable Airspace;
AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.
ACTION: Final rule; correction.
SUMMARY: The FAA is correcting the regulation addressing the effective
date of FAA determinations issued under 14 CFR part 77. The FAA amended
this regulation by final rule published on July 21, 2010. The purpose
of the final rule was to update the regulations governing objects that
may affect the navigable airspace, to incorporate case law and
legislative action, and to simplify the rule language. In one section
of the regulations, we inadvertently state that the effective date of
all determinations is 40 days from the date of issuance. However, only
FAA determinations subject to the discretionary review process are
effective 40 days from the date of issuance. All other FAA
determinations are effective upon issuance. This document corrects that
DATES: Effective January 18, 2011.
