Installation of Terrain Awareness and Warning System (TAWS) Approved for Part 23 Airplanes
Establishes an acceptable means, but not the only means, of obtaining FAA airworthiness approval for the installation of a TAWS that has been approved under Technical Standard Order (TSO)-C151A, Terrain Awareness and Warning System, in a Part 23 airplane. The FAA’s TSO process is a means for obtaining FAA design and performance approval for an appliance, system, or product; however, the TSO does not provide installation approval. This AC serves to provide guidance for designing an acceptable installation for a TAWS that complies with TSO-C151a. The guidance provided is specific to installations of these systems on airplanes certificated under Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations Part 23. It describes the airworthiness considerations for such installations as they apply to the unique features of the TAWS and the interface of the TAWS with other systems on the airplane.

Provides an acceptable means of compliance with Part 23 of the FAR for type certification of certain small airplanes.
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.

Means of Compliance with Title 14 CFR, Part 23, § 23.629, Flutter
Presents information and guidance to provide one means, but not the only means, of complying with Section 23.629, Flutter (including flutter, airfoil divergence, and control reversal) of Part 23 of the Federal Aviation Regulations.
Airworthiness Compliance Checklists Used to Substantiate Major Alterations for Small Airplanes
Standardization Guide for Integrated Cockpits in Part 23 Airplanes
The AC acknowledges the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) Publication #12, “Recommended Practices and Guidelines for an Integrated Flightdeck/Cockpit in a 14 CFR (or equivalent) Certificated Airplane,” as an acceptable means for showing compliance with applicable requirements for electronic displays in part 23 airplanes. Guidance in AC 23.1311, SAE, and RTCA documents was used in developing the GAMA Publication #12. (GAMA Publication #12 is available from GAMA. Their website is 222.gama.aera.) A combined industry and FAA team developed the GAMA publication.
