FAA Makes Minor Changes to Part 139

On January 16, 2013, FAA published a Final Rule containing minor amendments to FAR Part 139.  The amendments include minor changes in the applicability provision; a change in the definition of “joint-use airport”; a prohibition on fraudulent or false statements in applications, records, or reports; and requirements for recurrent training for pedestrians and ground vehicles operating in the movement areas and safety areas.  FAA decided not to make several other changes identified in the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, published in February 2011.
