The FAA released a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) on January 10 that would update and extend Part 5 SMS requirements to Part 135 outfits, certain Part 21 certificate holders, and air tours operating under FAR 91.147. There is a comment period now through April 11. You can read the NPRM here. The FAA Part 5 NPRM is reaching the end of its comment period, and so far the industry has only submitted 74 comments...most of which do not meet the mark.
This is a critical time for the industry to rally together around Part 5, and provide feedback to the FAA. The Tennessee Business Aviation Association (TnBAA) would like to invite all of our members and industry individuals to join them in a presentation given by Amanda Ferraro, with Aviation Safety Solutions! The presentation will be held virtually via Zoom on March 23rd from 2pm to 3pm eastern.
If you are a Part 91 Flight Department that operates outside the U.S., Part 135, Part 145, Manufacturer, or a Flight School, you will benefit from this discussion.
Learn what the FAA is proposing in Part 5 and how to prepare your own comment that will benefit the industry.
