SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    A number of inadvertent editing errors in the airworthiness 
standards of Sec.  33.87 have been identified by the FAA. Some errors 
apply to the standards for one engine inoperative (OEI) ratings for 
rotorcraft turbine engines. Others are simply plain language errors. 
This technical amendment corrects those errors in Sec.  33.87. None of 
the corrections are substantive in nature, and none will impose any 
additional burden on any person.
