136-2 AFS-300 Recommended Aircraft Maintenance Practices for Commercial Air Tour Operators

 This AC describes maintenance practices that we, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), recommend for aircraft that you, a commercial air tour operator, use to perform commercial air tours. (We list these operations in Paragraph 2.) We based these practices, in part, on National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) safety recommendations. The recommended practices in this AC aren’t mandatory and don’t constitute a regulation. However, we believe that when properly followed, these practices can increase safety in your operation and reduce the number of maintenance-related air tour accidents.

00-1.1A AFS-800 Public Aircraft Operations

This advisory circular (AC) provides information to assist in determining whether government or government-contracted aircraft operations conducted within the territory of the United States are public or civil aircraft operations under the statutory definition of "public aircraft," in Title 49 of the United States Code (49 U.S.C.) §§ 40102(a)(41) and 40125 (the statute). Additionally, this AC contains Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) policy pertaining to civil aircraft operators that provide contract support to government entities. The intent of this material is to better define the responsibilities of the parties to these contracts. This AC is not mandatory and does not constitute a regulation. Nothing in this AC changes the legal requirement for public aircraft operators to comply with the statute.

00-60B AFS-800 North American Free Trade Agreement and Specialty Air Services Operations

This advisory circular (AC) provides information and guidance for operators under the provisions of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and operational guidance within the three Civil Aviation Authorities (CAA). NAFTA opens up cross-border trade in Specialty Air Services (SAS) and was ratified by the United States of America, the United Mexican States, and Canada.

65-31B AFS-300 Training, Qualification, and Certification of Nondestructive Inspection Personnel

This advisory circular (AC) contains recommendations for the experience, training, qualification, examination, and certification of nondestructive inspection (NDI) personnel for the inspection of aircraft, engines, propellers, accessories, and other aviation components. It recommends criteria for the qualification of personnel requiring appropriate knowledge of the technical principles underlying the nondestructive tests they perform. This document applies to those individuals directly responsible for technical adequacy of the NDI methods used, as well as those persons or organizations providing training, supervision, or oversight of NDI personnel. Organizations should have a written program describing the guidelines used to train, qualify, and certify personnel. Inspection personnel qualified under this document may be eligible for Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) repairman’s certification with an NDI rating.

25.795-9 ANM-100 Chemical Oxygen Generator Security Standards

This advisory circular (AC) provides guidance for an acceptable means of showing compliance with the requirements of Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations(14 CFR) 25.795(d), Chemical oxygen generators.  Section 25.795(d) requires each chemical oxygen generator (COG) or its installation to be designed so it meets one of several criteria.  The means of compliance described in this document provides guidance to supplement the engineering and operational judgment that must form the basis of any compliance findings relative to a COG installed on an airplane.

20-138D AIR-130 Airworthiness Approval of Positioning and Navigation Systems

This revision adds minor clarifications and new guidance material based on issues and questions since revision ‘C’ was published. There are several new changes such as: equipment capability versus installed limitations; clarifying database configuration versus equipment capability; adding step-down fixes to navigation databases; a new appendix for demonstrating radius to fix (RF) leg capability; and, including required navigation performance (RNP) prediction guidance for RNP authorization required approach (RNP AR APCH).

00-63A AFS-400 Use of Cockpit Displays of Digital Weather and Aeronautical Information

This advisory circular (AC) provides guidance to flightcrew members and other airmen on the use of data link to access Flight Information Services (FIS). This AC addresses both the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) FIS Broadcast (FIS-B) provided through the Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B) Universal Access Transceiver (UAT) network and non-FAA FIS systems provided through commercial data link services.

a. Flight Information Services (FIS). FIS is a service that provides Meteorological Information (METI) and Aeronautical Information (AI) to enhance pilot awareness of weather and/or airspace constraints while providing information for decision support tools and improving safety. METI and AI data link services enable flightcrews to support the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) concepts of information sharing and provide airmen with a common operating picture necessary to support the evolving global Air Traffic Management (ATM) concepts.

b. Advantages of FIS METI and AI. FIS of METI and AI can augment pilot voice communications with Flight Service Stations (FSS), other air traffic control (ATC) facilities, airline dispatch centers, flight following facilities or other Operation Control Centers (OCC), typically referred to as System Operations Control (SOC). In addition, Internet connectivity provides the capability for Baseline Synchronization Services (BSS) to be utilized to update the aircraft’s navigational and other databases prior to flight.

20-181 AIR-130 Airworthiness Approval of Attitude Heading Reference System (AHRS) Equipment

This advisory circular (AC) supplements existing airworthiness approval guidance for attitude heading reference system (AHRS) articles approved under technical standard order (TSO)?C201, Attitude Heading Reference System, or later revisions.  TSO-C201 includes performance standards for non-gimbaled attitude, heading, and turn and slip systems.
