WINGS - Pilot Proficiency Programs
The objective of the WINGS Pilot Proficiency Program is to reduce the number of accidents in General Aviation (GA) by assisting airmen to find educational opportunities designed to help them apply the principles of risk assessment and risk management (RM). When properly applied, these principles will help mitigate accident causal factors associated with common pilot errors, lack of proficiency, and faulty knowledge. The Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) purpose is to encourage the majority of GA pilots, through WINGS, to engage in ongoing, targeted flying tasks and learning activities keyed to identified risks and which are designed to mitigate those risks. The FAA continually collects and assesses its databases to identify the risks associated with GA flying and incorporates risk mitigation strategies into initial and ongoing pilot education.
Voluntary Industry Distributor Accreditation Program
This advisory circular (AC) describes a system for accrediting civil aircraft parts distributors based on voluntary industry oversight. The AC also provides information for developing accreditation programs. We, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), strongly endorse participation in such a program to help certificated persons establish the eligibility of parts and products for installation on U.S. type-certificated (TC) products. We have revised this AC to meet current changes in regulatory requirements and industry practices since original publication. This AC is not mandatory and does not constitute a regulation. Any mandatory language used in this AC applies only to those who choose to voluntarily participate in this program; those who do choose to participate must follow the processes and procedures described in this AC in their entirety to be considered compliant with this program.

Using Electronic Modeling Systems as Primary Type Design Data
This AC provides information and guidance on developing procedures for using electronic modeling systems in design, manufacture, installation, and inspection processes. It applies to applicants for Type Certificates (TCs), Amended Type Certificate (ATCs), Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs), Parts Manufacturer Approval (PMA), Technical Standard Order Authorizations (TSOA), major alterations, and major repairs. In this AC, we explain how you can submit a proposal to use electronic modeling system data instead of (or in addition to) traditional paper format for the technical data required for initial and post certification activities. We identify the minimum criteria for using electronic type design data, and include requirements for how to access and present the data. In this AC, we define an “electronic modeling system” as a three?dimensional (3-D) modeling system.
For Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification applicants, this AC mirrors our procedures in Order 8000.79, Use of Electronic Technology and Storage of Data, and Guide FAA-IR-01?01A, Aircraft Certification Guide for the Use of Electronic Technology and Alternative Methods of Storing Information. This AC must be used in conjunction with Order 8000.79 and Guide FAA-IR-01-01A.
This AC is not mandatory and does not constitute a regulation. We describe acceptable means, though it is not the only means, for using electronic modeling systems in design, manufacture, installation, and inspection processes. If you use the means described in this AC, you must follow it in its entirety
