The success of the Public Aircraft Forum at HELI-EXPO 2012 in Dallas, Texas will result in the formation of an industry-government working group to address the changes the FAA is proposing to Advisory Circular 00-1.1 A on Public Aircraft.
The circular provides guidance on what is considered a â€œpublic aircraft,â€ as defined by 49 U.S.C. Â§ 40102; the working group will provide additional guidance to the industry as to what meets the regulatory definition. The group will be comprised of industry stakeholders as well as officials from the NTSB, FAA and other government agencies.
The FAA is currently seeking comments on the draft circular, which are due on April 13, 2012. Comments can be mailed or faxed to the FAA, referencing docket number FAA-2012-0156, at:
