This advisory circular (AC) provides guidance for the flight test evaluation of transport category airplanes. This AC includes flight test methods and procedures to show compliance with the regulations contained in subpart B of Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 25, which address airplane performance and handling characteristics. Part 25 has been amended significantly since the last revision of this AC and, likewise, guidance and policy have changed in many areas as experience has been gained. During this time period, technology has advanced as well, resulting in a need for new or modified test techniques. This revision, AC 25-7B, adds acceptable means of compliance for the regulatory changes associated with amendments 108, 109, and 115 to part 25, and a revised means of compliance for expansion of takeoff and landing data for higher airport elevations. Means of compliance associated with flight in icing conditions was removed as this material is now contained in AC 25-25.
