Developing Data for Major Repairs of Turbine Engine Parts
a. This advisory circular (AC) provides information and guidance on developing the technical data needed for major repairs of critical and complex turbine engine parts. This guidance will help persons developing major repair data meet the requirements of Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 43 to restore the engine to at least equal to its original or properly altered condition. This does not mean that a repaired part must be returned to a factory-new condition. However, the engine on which the repaired part is installed must remain airworthy and in compliance with the applicable regulations. For repairs of turbine engines and parts, the applicable requirements are Airworthiness Standards: Aircraft Engines (14 CFR part 33) and Fuel Venting and Exhaust Emissions Requirements for Turbine Engine Powered Airplanes (14 CFR part 34).
b. Additionally, this AC provides guidance to assist persons developing major repairs with developing a continued operational safety plan. It also helps them evaluate engine parts recovered from accidents and incidents prior to making a repair.
|33.47-1||ANE-110||Detonation Testing in Reciprocating Aircraft Engines Provides guidance material for acceptable means of demonstrating compliance with the requirements of FAR Part 33, relating to detonation testing for reciprocating aircraft engines.||06-27-1988|
|33-4||ANE-110||Design Considerations Concerning the Use of Titanium in Aircraft Turbine Engines Provides guidance and acceptable means, not the sole means, by which compliance may be shown with the design requirements of Part 33 to minimize the probability of the occurrence of an internal fire when titanium is used in aircraft turbine engines.||07-28-1983|
Damage Tolerance of Hole Features in High-Energy Turbine
This advisory circular (AC) provides definitions, guidance, and acceptable methods, but not the only methods, that may be used to demonstrate compliance with requirements in § 33.70 of Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations related to the integrity of engine life-limited parts. Section 33.70 contains requirements applicable to the design and life management of propulsion system life-limited parts, including high-energy rotating parts.
This AC presents a damage tolerance approach which can be used to address manufacturing and operationally-induced anomalies in turbine engine rotating part hole features. This approach can be readily integrated with the existing “safe-life” process for high-energy rotors to produce an enhanced life management process. This approach does not replace existing safe-life methodology but supplements it. In the context of damage tolerance, this AC is not intended to allow operation beyond the component manual life limit set using the existing safe life approach which limits the useful rotor life to the minimum number of flight cycles required to initiate a crack. Rotor failure modes for which full containment of high-energy debris can be demonstrated are excluded from the procedures outlined in this AC and need not be accounted for in the overall risk assessment.
|33.14-1||ANE-110||Damage Tolerance for High Energy Turbine Engine Rotors This advisory circular describes an acceptable means for showing compliance with the requirements of section 33.14 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations). Section 33.14 contains requirements applicable to the design and life management of high energy rotating parts of aircraft gas turbine engines.||01-08-2001|
|33.28-1||ANE-110||Compliance Criteria for 14 CFR §33.28, Aircraft Engines, Electrical and Electronic Engine Control Systems This advisory circular (AC) provides guidance and acceptable methods, but not the only methods, that may be used to demonstrate compliance with 14 CFR 33.28, Electrical and Electronic Engine Control Systems. Like all AC material, this AC is not, in itself, mandatory and does not constitute a regulation. While these guidelines are not mandatory, they are derived from extensive Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and industry experience in determining compliance with the pertinent regulations.||06-29-2001|
Comparative Method to Show Equivalent Vibratory Stresses and High Cycle Fatigue Capability for Parts Manufacturer Approval of Turbine Engine and Auxiliary Power Unit Parts
This advisory circular (AC) describes a comparative test and analysis method that may be used for turbine engine or auxiliary power unit (APU) blades or vanes when produced under parts manufacturer approval (PMA). PMA applicants may use this comparative modal and high-cycle fatigue (HCF) method to show the vibratory stresses and HCF capability of their proposed blades or vanes are equivalent to those of the type design parts. This method supports showing that the engine or APU still complies with part 33 of Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR part 33) or Technical Standard Order (TSO) C77.

|33.87-1||ANE-111||Calibration Test Endurance Test and Teardown Inspection for Turbine Engine Certification (§§ 33.85, 33.87, 33.93) Provides information and guidance on acceptable methods, but not only methods, of compliance with the test requirements of § 33.85 (Calibration test) § 33.87 (endurance test), and §33.93 (teardown inspection) of Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR Part 33).||04-13-2006|
Bird Ingestion Certification Standards
This advisory circular (AC) provides guidance and acceptable methods, but not the only methods, that may be used to demonstrate compliance with the bird ingestion requirements of Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) § 33.76. Although this AC does refer to regulatory requirements that are mandatory, this AC is not, in itself, mandatory. This AC neither changes any regulatory requirements, nor authorizes changes in, or deviations from, the regulatory requirements.
Bird Ingestion Certification Standards
Provide guidance and acceptable methods, but not the only methods, for demonstrating compliance with bird ingestion requirement of § 33.76 of the Federal Aviation Regulations, Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations
