Federal Aviation Administration

14 CFR Part 1

[Docket No. FAA-2012-1043; Amdt. Nos. 1-1]


Night Definition; Technical Amendment

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration, DOT.

ACTION: Technical amendment.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The FAA is correcting the title of the publication ``American 
Air Almanac'' to its current title ``Air Almanac''. This document 
corrects this minor technical error in the codified regulations.

DATES: Effective October 12, 2012.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For technical questions concerning 
this action, contact Ida M. Klepper, Airmen and Airspace Rules 
Division, Office of Rulemaking, ARM-100, Federal Aviation 
Administration, 800 Independence Avenue SW., Washington, DC 20591; 
telephone: 202-267-9677; email: Ida.Klepper@faa.gov.

Background

    The former ``American Air Almanac'' was created to meet the general 
requirements for air navigation in the United Kingdom, the United 
States, and Canada. In 14 CFR 1.1 the definition of night refers to 
twilight times as published in the ``American Air Almanac''. The 
``American Air Almanac'' publication ceased in 1953 and is currently 
called the ``Air Almanac''. This technical amendment corrects the title 
of the publication.

Technical Amendment

    This technical amendment makes one revision to the codified text 
Sec.  1.1. The language in Sec.  1.1incorrectly uses the title 
``American Air Almanac'' when it should read ``Air Almanac''.
    Because the change in this technical amendment results in no 
substantive change, we find good cause exists under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3) 
to make the amendment effective in less than 30 days.

List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 1

    Air transportation.

The Amendment

    In consideration of the foregoing, the Federal Aviation 
Administration amends chapter I of title 14, Code of Federal 
Regulations as follows:
