Additional Information: The estimated costs of this rule do not include the costs of mitigations that operators could incur as a result of conducting the risk analysis proposed in this rule. Given the range of mitigation actions possible, it is difficult to provide a quantitative estimate of both the costs and benefits of such mitigations. However, we anticipate that operators will only implement mitigations where benefits exceeds costs. As such, the FAA believes that the costs of this rule would be justified by the anticipated benefits of the rule, if adopted as proposed.
