120-106 AFS-300 Scope and Recommended Content for a Contractual Agreement Between an Air Carrier and a Contract Maintenance Provider

 This advisory circular (AC) describes the scope and recommended content requirements for contractual agreements between an air carrier and a contract maintenance provider (CMP). It explains the background and the necessity to interject specific requirements into a contractual agreement to ensure the air carrier fully supports the requirements imposed by Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR). Because the air carrier has the primary responsibility for the airworthiness of its aircraft it must ensure the proper controls are in place to assess, qualify, and authorize work performed for it by other persons, regardless of whether the performance of work is by a certificated or noncertificated CMP.

21-48 AIR-100 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

This advisory circular (AC) shows you how to obtain Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) airworthiness approval for the development, verification, and integration of an integrated modular avionics (IMA) system for installation into an aircraft or engine.  We cite RTCA, Inc. document RTCA/DO-297, Integrated Modular Avionics (IMA) Development Guidance and Certification Considerations, dated November 8, 2005 and supplement it with this text.  This AC also provides guidance on how to show compliance with Technical Standard Order (TSO)-C153, Integrated Modular Avionics Hardware Elements.

This AC is not mandatory and does not constitute a regulation.  In it, we describe an acceptable means, though it is not the only means, to obtain FAA approval of IMA systems.    

This AC uses the terminology “should” when discussing compliance to the AC itself, as the AC represents one, but not the only, method of complying with the regulations.   This AC uses the term “must” when discussing compliance to the regulations, as compliance to a regulation is not optional.  In these cases, the AC text supplies, in square brackets, a reference to the specific rule(s) being discussed.
