“FAA is also delaying the effective date of the remote identification final rule. Additionally, as a result of the delay in the effective dates, several corrections are necessary. Some of the compliance dates for § 107.29(a)(1) and (d) regarding the operation of a small unmanned aircraft system at night must be corrected so that they do not precede the new effective date. Similarly, a correction to § 107.65(d) regarding the timing of passing the recurrent aeronautical knowledge test or satisfying training requirements must also be made to conform to the delayed effective date. ”
