25.785-1B ANM-100 Flight Attendant Seat and Torso Restraint System Installations

This advisory circular

CAe) provides information and guidance regarding an acceptable means, but not the only means, of compliance with th~ portions of 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 25.785 and 14 CFR 121.311, which deal with flight attendant seats. This material is for guidance purposes; it is not mandatory and does not constitute a regulation. The guidelines incorporated in this AC are intended to address the adequacy of new designs and are not intended to require that in·service airplanes be modified solely for the purpose of meeting them. Voluntary modifications to existing cabins are not required to meet the new criteria but modifiers should incorporate them to the extent practical considering the scope and intent of the voluntary modification.

25-27A ANM-100 Development of Transport Category Airplane Electrical Wiring Interconnection Systems Instructions for Continued Airworthiness Using and Enhanced Zonal Analysis Procedure

Airworthiness Program for Airplane Systems/Fuel Tank Safety (EAPAS/FTS)” rule. That rule requires design approval holders (DAHs) and applicants to develop instructions for continued airworthiness (ICA) consisting of maintenance and inspection tasks, intervals, and procedures for the representative airplane’s electrical wiring interconnection systems (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 No. 88 (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 Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) oversight office for review and approval. 

This AC provides guidance for developing maintenance and inspection instructions for EWIS using an enhanced zonal analysis procedure (EZAP). For the purposes of this AC, the term “maintenance” encompasses both “maintenance” and “preventive maintenance,” as those terms are defined in Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 1.1. For airplane models whose maintenance programs already include a zonal inspection program, the logic described here provides guidance on improving those programs. For airplanes without a zonal inspection program, use of this logic will produce zonal inspections for wiring that can be added to the existing maintenance program. This AC contains information that can be used by operators to improve EWIS maintenance practices. It stresses the importance of inspecting EWIS and
promotes a philosophy of “protect and clean as you go” when performing maintenance, repair, or alterations on an airplane.
33-9 ANE-111 Developing Data for Major Repairs of Turbine Engine Parts


a.     This advisory circular (AC) provides information and guidance on developing the technical data needed for major repairs of critical and complex turbine engine parts.  This guidance will help persons developing major repair data meet the requirements of Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 43 to restore the engine to at least equal to its original or properly altered condition.  This does not mean that a repaired part must be returned to a factory-new condition.  However, the engine on which the repaired part is installed must remain airworthy and in compliance with the applicable regulations.  For repairs of turbine engines and parts, the applicable requirements are Airworthiness Standards: Aircraft Engines (14 CFR part 33) and Fuel Venting and Exhaust Emissions Requirements for Turbine Engine Powered Airplanes (14 CFR part 34).
       b.    Additionally, this AC provides guidance to assist persons developing major repairs with developing a continued operational safety plan.  It also helps them evaluate engine parts recovered from accidents and incidents prior to making a repair.
