91-44A AIR-120 Operational and Maintenance Practices for Emergency Locator Transmitters and Receivers Combines and updates material in several Advisory Circulars on the subject of emergency locator transmitters (ELT) receivers for airborne service. 12-12-1980
91-62A AIR-120 Use of Child Seats in Aircraft Provides information to assist the public in the proper use of child seats aboard aircraft and provides precautions so all occupants are able to exit rapidly from aircraft during emergencies. 10-15-1992
91-77 AJR-1 General Aviation, Coded Departure Routes (CDR) Provides guidance to customers of the National Airspace System on the use of Coded Departure Routes. CDRs provide more flexibility for selecting an alternate departure for specific airport when traffic constraint such as thunderstorms, turbulence, and periods of excessive demand exist. Use of a CDR reduces key-entry inputs for controllers and minimizes read-back time between tower staff and pilots, which creates an abbreviated clearance. These abbreviated clearances provide an efficient means for air traffic control (ATC) to provide alternate routes if an airspace constraint occurs. 06-01-2007
91-80 AJR-1 Air Traffic Control System Command Center (ATCSCC) Hotlines

This advisory circular provides guidance to customers of the National Airspace System (NAS) in regard to the use of and participation on ATCSCC hotlines.

91-81 AJR-1 Dual J80 Route Procedure This advisory circular provides information to customers of the National Airspace System (NAS) in regards to the implementation and use of the dual J80 route procedure. The concept of the dual J80 route is to provide a near-term alternative for aircraft that normally file their flight on J80, westbound from New York and Philadelphia area airports. The dual J80 route virtually parallels the current J80 airway. This new procedure will be implemented as an unpublished route available on May 15, 2008. This route will be established and published as a “Q-Route” or Area area Navigation navigation (RNAV) route at a later date. The objective is to provide additional departure capability for westbound aircraft by alleviating constraints associated with airport departure flows that compete for J80, i.e., New York metropolitan and Philadelphia departures, and over flights from points north of the New York area. Current routes through this airspace transit very busy air traffic sectors, and delays are frequently encountered due tobecause of the large volume of aircraft that use these routes everyday. During summer months, these paths can be constrained by thunderstorms and turbulence. New York area departures will benefit from the additional route and increased flexibility, allowing our customers to receive more efficient air traffic services. 05-13-2008
91-33A ANE-110 Use of Alternate Grades of Aviation Gasoline for Grade 80/87, and Use of Automotive Gasoline Provides information relating to the use of alternate grades of gasoline when grade 80/87 aviation is not available and the resultant effects of the use of the alternate fuels which have higher TEL (tetraethyl lead) content. Suggestions are offered as acceptable means of avoiding engine operating difficulties when using alternate fuels. This circular also provides suggestions for added safety in the use of automotive gasoline in those aircraft engines and aircraft covered by Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs). 07-18-1984
91-56B ANM-115 Continuing Structural Integrity Program for Airplanes Provides guidance material to manufacturers and operators of transport category airplanes for use in developing a continuing structural integrity program to ensure safe operation of older airplanes throughout their operational lives. This guidance material applies to large transport airplanes which were certified under the fail-safe and fatigue requirements of Civil Air Regulations (CAR) 4b o 14 CFR part 25 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR), prior to Amendment 25-45, and which have a maximum gross weight greater than 75,000 pounds. Guidance material on this subject for other transports is provided in AC 91-60. The procedures set forth by this AC are applicable to the large transport category airplanes operated under Subpart D of part 91, and parts 121 and 125. 03-07-2008
