DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION

Federal Aviation Administration


Furlough Implementation

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice.

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

SUMMARY: This action gives notice to the American public and aviation 
industry of the FAA's Aviation Safety Office's (AVS) furlough 
implementation. Under the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control 
Act of 1985, as amended by the Budget Control Act of 2011 and the 
American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, across-the-board budget cuts 
require the FAA to implement furloughs. AVS and its Services/Offices 
will implement the required 11 days of furlough beginning April 21, 
2013 and continuing through September 30, 2013. AVS will continue to 
focus resources on those initiatives that would have the highest safety 
and economic value for the American public and aviation industry. The 
furlough days vary, with each office scheduling those days in 
accordance with mission requirements, workload considerations, and 
applicable collective bargaining agreements. For specific information, 
please see the FAA Web site at http://www.faa.gov/about/office_org/headquarters_offices/avs/operations_sequestration.

DATES: The furlough will take place beginning April 21 through 
September 30, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: For specific information, please see the FAA 
Web site at http://www.faa.gov/about/office_org/headquarters_offices/avs/operations_sequestration.
