SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On May 28, 2010, the FAA published a final rule entitled,

``Automatic Dependent Surveillance--Broadcast (ADS-B) Out Performance

Requirements To Support Air Traffic Control (ATC) Service'' (75 FR 30160).

There are three footnotes in the preamble for the final rule that refer the reader to the docket to find information on the analyses and evaluations performed by the Separation Standards Working Group. The

FAA is revising two of those footnotes (footnotes 23 and 33) to clarify that the cited material is contained in Annexes B and G of RTCA DO-318

Safety, Performance and Interoperability Requirements Document for

Enhanced Air Traffic in Radar-Controlled Areas Using ADS-B Surveillance

(ADS-B RAD). A copy of those two annexes is in the docket. The third footnote (footnote 54) cites a SBS Working Group Report, dated November 30, 2006. This footnote should reference instead Annexes B and G of

RTCA DO-318.

In addition, both the preamble discussion and the regulatory text of Sec. Sec. 91.225 and 91.227 address equipment with an approved deviation under Sec. 21.618. By separate rulemaking entitled

``Production and Airworthiness Approval, Part Marking, and

Miscellaneous Amendments,'' published October 16, 2009 (74 FR 53368), the FAA revised part 21 subpart O, and Sec. 21.609 Approval for deviation was renumbered as Sec. 21.618, effective April 14, 2010. The

FAA later published a correction to that rule on March 1, 2010 (75 FR 9095) changing the effective date for the revision of subpart O to

April 16, 2011. In the ADS-B final rule, therefore, the FAA is changing the references from Sec. 21.618 to Sec. 21.609 to reflect the correct section number. The FAA also is issuing a separate technical amendment elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register to change the reference from Sec. 21.609 to Sec. 21.618, effective April 16, 2011.

In final rule FR Doc. 2010-12645, beginning on page 30160, in the

Federal Register of May 28, 2010, make the following corrections:

Corrections to Preamble 1. On page 30164, in the second column, in fourth line, revise

``Sec. 21.618'' to read ``Sec. 21.609.'' 2. On page 30166, in the second column, revise footnote 23 to read as follows:

\23\ The SSWG findings and analyses were adopted by RTCA SC-186 and codified in Annexes B and G of DO-318 Safety, Performance and

Interoperability Requirements Document for Enhanced Air Traffic in

Radar-Controlled Areas Using ADS-B Surveillance (ADS-B RAD). The annexes are available at http://www.regulations.gov. The docket number for this rulemaking is FAA-2007-29305. 3. On page 30169, in the third column, revise footnote 33 to read as follows:

\33\ The FAA's determination was based on the findings of the

SSWG, which were adopted by RTCA SC-186 and codified in Annexes B and G of DO-318 Safety, Performance and Interoperability

Requirements Document for Enhanced Air Traffic in Radar-Controlled

Areas Using ADS-B Surveillance (ADS-B RAD). The annexes are available at http://www.regulations.gov. The docket number for this rulemaking is FAA-2007-29305. 4. On page 30179, in the third column, revise footnote 54 to read as follows:

\54\ These operational evaluations were based on the findings of the SSWG, were adopted by RTCA SC-186 and codified in Annexes B and

G of DO-318 Safety, Performance and Interoperability Requirements

Document for Enhanced Air Traffic in Radar-Controlled Areas Using

ADS-B Surveillance (ADS-B RAD). The annexes are available at http:// www.regulations.gov. The docket number for this rulemaking is FAA- 2007-29305.
