Development of Transport Category Airplane Electrical Wiring Interconnection Systems Instructions for Continued Airworthiness Using an Enhanced Zonal Analysis Procedure
This advisory circular (AC) describes the compliance process for the “Enhanced Airworthiness Program for Airplane Systems/Fuel Tank Safety (EAPAS/FTS)” rule. That rule requires design approval holders (DAH) to develop instructions for continued airworthiness (ICA) consisting of maintenance and inspection tasks, intervals and procedures for the representative airplane’s electrical wiring interconnection system (EWIS) for each affected type design. The DAH must also review any fuel tank system ICA it has developed in compliance with Special Federal Aviation Regulation (SFAR) 88 in order to ensure compatibility with the EWIS ICA, including minimizing redundant requirements. The DAH must then submit the EWIS ICA to the FAA Oversight Office for review and approval.Date Cancelled: 05-04-2007

Air Carrier Maintenance Programs
This advisory circular (AC) describes the scope and content of air carrier aircraft maintenance programs. It explains the background of these programs as well as the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) regulatory requirements. Each of the 10 elements of air carrier maintenance programs are also described and explained. In this AC, air carrier maintenance means inspection, overhaul, repair, preservation, and the replacement of parts, as well as preventive maintenance. When “must” or “will” are used in this AC, they reflect regulatory requirements. When “you” or “your” is used in this AC, it refers to the air carrier.Date Cancelled: 11-05-2012
Standards For Airport Sign Systems
Contains the Federal Aviation Administration standards for the siting and installation of signs on airport runways and taxiways.
