Airworthiness Standards: Transport Category Airplanes
Installed Systems and Equipment for Use by the Flightcrew
This advisory circular (AC) provides guidance for the design and methods of compliance for installed equipment on transport airplanes intended for use by the flightcrew. The guidance provided by this AC is intended to minimize the occurrence of design-related errors by the flightcrew and to enable the flightcrew to detect and manage errors that do occur. This AC provides recommendations for the design and evaluation of controls, displays, system behavior, and system integration that are all part of human factors considerations.

Guidance information is provided for showing compliance with structural and functional safety standards for doors and their operating systems. The intent of the requirements and some acceptable means of compliance are discussed. Other means are acceptable if they meet the intent of the regulations. For the propose of showing compliance with section 25.783 of FAR, hatches and exits are also considered to be doors.
Fuel Tank Ignition Source Prevention Guidelines

This guidance is applicable to transport category airplanes for which a new, amended, or supplemental type certificate is requested.
Fuel Tank Flammability
This advisory circular (AC) provides information and guidance on compliance with the airworthiness standards for transport category airplanes about limiting the time a fuel tank may be flammable or mitigation of hazards from flammable fuel air mixtures within fuel tanks. This guidance is applicable to transport category airplanes for which a new, amended, or supplemental type certificate is requested, and for which Amendment 25-125 applies. It is also applicable to certain existing design approval holders and certain pending applications for new type certificates, supplemental type certificates and amended type certificates where required by §§ 26.33, 26.35, 26.37, and 26.39, contained in a subpart D to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) part 26, “Fuel Tank Flammability.” Guidance on compliance with the associated requirements for operators of affected airplanes that must comply with requirements in 14 CFR parts 121, 125 and 129, to incorporate flammability reduction or ignition mitigation means by specified dates, will be contained in a separate document.
Fuel Tank Access Covers
Sets forth a means of compliance with the provisions of Part 25 of the FAR dealing with the certification requirements for fuel tank access covers on turbine powered transport category airplanes. Guidance information is provided for showing compliance with the impact and fire resistance requirements of Section 25.963(e).
Floor Proximity Emergency Escape Path Marking Systems Incorporating Photoluminescent Elements
Provides guidance for use in demonstrating compliance with the provisions of part 25 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) regarding floor proximity emergency escape path marking systems (FPEEPMS), which incorporate photo luminescent elements. Although mandatory terms such as “shall” or “must” are used in this AC, because the AC method of compliance is not itself mandatory, these terms apply only to applicants who seek to demonstrate compliance by use of the specific method described by this AC.
Floor Proximity Emergency Escape Path Marking
Provides guidance material for use in demonstrating compliance with the provisions of Part 25 of the FAR requiring floor proximity emergency escape path markings.
Flightdeck Protection (Smoke and Fumes)
This advisory circular (AC) describes an acceptable means of showing compliance with the requirements of Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR), part 25, § 25.795(b)(1), “Flight deck protection.” This section requires that an airplane be designed to limit the entry of smoke, fumes, and noxious gases into the flightdeck in the event of detonation of an explosive or incendiary device on the airplane. 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 penetration into the flightdeck of smoke, fumes, and noxious gases generated by explosions or fires elsewhere on the airplane.
This Advisory Circular (AC) provides guidance for showing compliance with certain requirements of Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR), part 25, for the design approval of flightcrew-alerting functions
FlightDeck Intrusion Resistance
This advisory circular (AC) sets forth an acceptable means, but not the only means, of demonstrating compliance with the provisions of the airworthiness standards for transport category airplanes related to the airplane design for flightdeck (also referred to as the pilot compartment or cockpit) intrusion resistance. Intrusion resistance, in the context of this AC, refers to the ability to resist forced entry by a person who is not authorized by the pilot in command to enter the flightdeck. Intrusion resistance also includes the ability to resist attempts to enter the flightdeck through use of simple tools, such as pocket knives, nail files, or keys.
Flight Test Guide For Certification Of Transport Category Airplanes
This advisory circular (AC) provides guidance for the flight test evaluation of transport category airplanes. This AC includes flight test methods and procedures to show compliance with the regulations contained in subpart B of Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 25, which address airplane performance and handling characteristics. This revision, AC 25-7C, is a complete revision to reduce the number of differences from the European Aviation Safety Agency’s Flight Test Guide, provide acceptable means of compliance for the regulatory changes associated with amendments 107, 109, 113, 115, 119, and 123 to part 25, respond to National Transportation Safety Board recommendations, and to provide a general update to reflect current FAA and industry practices and policies.
