Title: Transponder Requirement for Gliders 
Abstract: This rulemaking would request public comment on removal of the current transponder exception for gliders. This action responds to recommendations from members of Congress and the National Transportation Safety Board. The purpose of this action is to gather information to determine whether the current glider exception from transponder equipment and use requirements provide the appropriate level of safety in the National Airspace System. The FAA would use the information gathered from this action to determine whether additional transponder equipment and use requirements are necessary for gliders operating in the excepted areas.
