Acceptance of Aeronautical Data Processes and Associated Databases
This AC will help you to:
(1) Obtain a Letter of Acceptance (LOA) from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) that acknowledges compliance with this AC regarding aeronautical data processing.
(2) Evaluate whether data processes comply with the requirements of RTCA, Inc. document DO-200A, Standards for Processing Aeronautical Data.
(3) Define the data quality requirements (DQRs) for aeronautical data when obtaining airworthiness approval of new equipment or installations where the function of the equipment is dependent on an updateable database.
(4) Understand how an organization adheres to the data preparation and data transmission criteria applicable to the functions performed by that aeronautical data chain link or participant.
Acceptance and Use of Electronic Signatures, Electronic Recordkeeping Systems, and Electronic Manuals
This AC provides guidance on the acceptance and use of electronic signatures to satisfy certain operational and maintenance requirements. This AC also provides guidance on the acceptability of electronic recordkeeping systems and electronic maintenance manuals, including inspection procedures manuals, quality, operations manuals, and training manuals required by Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR).
Acceptance Guidance on Material Procurement and Process Specifications for Polymer Matrix Composite Systems
Provides information and guidance concerning an acceptable means, but not the only means, of compliance with Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 23. It is applicable to the material and process specifications, or other documents, used to ensure sufficient control of composite prepreg materials in normal, utility, acrobatic, and commuter category airplanes. Material in this AC is neither mandatory nor regulatory in nature and does not constitute a regulation.
Acceptable Methods, Techniques, and Practices - Aircraft Inspection and Repair [Large AC. This includes Change 1.]
This advisory circular (AC) contains methods, techniques, and practices acceptable to the Administrator for the inspection and repair of nonpressurized areas of civil aircraft, only when there are no manufacturer repair or maintenance instructions. This data generally pertains to minor repairs. The repairs identified in this AC may only be used as a basis for FAA approval for major repairs. The repair data may also be used as approved data, and the AC chapter, page, and paragraph listed in block 8 of FAA form 337 when:

Provides FAA standards and recommendations for the training of airport firefighting and rescue personnel in the proper operation and tactical use of Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) vehicles and ARFF vehicles equipped with High Reach Extendable Turret (HRETs). This guidance includes the development of department Standard Operating Guidelines (SOGs) and the development of department proficiency evaluation standards.
A Model Zoning Ordinance to Limit Height of Objects Around Airports
Provides a model zoning ordinance to be used as a guide to control the height of objects around airports. Editorially updated.
A Hazard in Aerobatics: Effects of G-Forces of Pilots
Provides background information on G-forces, their effect on the human body and their role in safe flying, and offers suggestions for avoiding problems caused by acceleration encountered in aerobatic maneuvers.
: Airworthiness Approval of Satellite Voice Equipment Supporting Air Traffic Service (ATS) Communication
This advisory circular (AC) provides guidance on airworthiness approval for designers, manufacturers, and installers of satellite voice equipment supportingair traffic service (ATS). In this AC, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) recommends one way to gain airworthiness approval for satellite voice equipment. This AC is not mandatory and does not constitute a regulation. This AC describes an acceptable means, but not the only means, to gain airworthiness approval for your satellite voice equipment. However, if you use the means described in this AC, you must follow it in its entirety.
14 CFR Part 23 Type Certification of an Airplane Originally Certificated to Joint Aviation Regulations - Very Light Airplane (JAR-VLA) Standards
Provides an acceptable means of compliance with Part 23 of the FAR for type certification of certain small airplanes.
14 CFR Part 23 Type Certification of an Airplane Originally Certificated to European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) (CS-VLA) Standards or Joint Aviation Requirements – Very Light Airplane (JAR-VLA)
This advisory circular (AC) sets forth an acceptable means of showing compliance with Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR), part 23, for the certification of airplanes originally certificated to either European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) CS-VLA or Joint Aviation Requirements (JAR) JAR-VLA.
Exclusive Rights at Federally Obligated Airports
Provides basic information about the FAA's prohibition on the granting of exclusive rights at federally-obligated airports. This prohibition is one of the obligations assumed by the airport sponsors of public airports that have accepted federal assistance, either in the form of grants or property conveyances. This AC cancels AC 150/5190-5 (Change 1), Exclusive Rights and Minimum Standards for Commercial Aeronautical Activities, dated June 10, 2002.
