Our Original Response to the FAA's Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

* [For those not familiar, an Airworthiness Directive (AD) is an order issued by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to an aircraft owner to perform some task at their own expense. A Service Letter or Service Bulletin is issued by the aircraft manufacturer recommending an action, sometimes prompted by the FAA. A Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) is issued by the FAA prior to an AD, and usually calls for a federally mandated period for public response.]
