Date Issued
November 02, 1987
Responsible Office
This advisory circular (AC) provides guidance for the airworthiness approval of airborne windshear warning systems in transport category airplanes. Like all advisory circular material, this advisory circular is not, in itself, mandatory and does not constitute a regulation. It is issued for guidance purposes and to outline a method of compliance with the rules. In lieu of following this method without deviation, the applicant may elect to follow an alternate method, provided the alternate method is also found by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to be an acceptable means of complying with the requirements of Part 25 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR). Because the method of compliance presented in this AC is not mandatory, the terms "shall" and "must" used in this AC apply only to an applicant who chooses to follow this particular method without deviation.
