Address a number of issues linked to in-flight fires
Standard Operating Procedures for Flight Deck Crewmembers.
Presents background, basic concepts and philosophy in respect to SOP. SOP’s are universally recognized as basic to safe aviation operations. Effective crew coordination and crew performance, two central concepts of crew resource management depend upon the crew’s having a shared mental model of each task. That mental model, in turn, is founded on SOP’s. This AC emphasizes that SOP’s must be clear, comprehensive, and readily available in the manuals used by flight deck crewmembers. A comprehensive SOP template is provided.
Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP)
This AC provides guidance for establishing an air transportation Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP). This objective of the ASAP is to encourage air carrier and repair station employees to voluntarily report safety information that may be critical to identifying potential precursors to accidents. Under ASAP, safety issues are not resolved through punishment or discipline.
Acceptance and Use of Electronic Signatures, Electronic Recordkeeping Systems, and Electronic Manuals
This AC provides guidance on the acceptance and use of electronic signatures to satisfy certain operational and maintenance requirements. This AC also provides guidance on the acceptability of electronic recordkeeping systems and electronic maintenance manuals, including inspection procedures manuals, quality, operations manuals, and training manuals required by Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR).
Maintenance and Alteration Data
This advisory circular (AC) provides one means, but not the only means, of ensuring that the contemplated maintenance, alteration, or continue-in-service condition is in compliance with applicable regulations and existing policy.
Criteria for Approval of Category I and Category II Weather Minima for Approach
This AC provides an acceptable means, but not the only means, for obtaining and maintaining approval of CAT I & II Weather Minima including the installation and approval of associated aircraft systems.
Air Carrier First Aid Programs
Provides guidance about first aid program resources, subjects, equipment, and pertinent regulations. This revision adds information about blood borne pathogen awareness programs.
Damage Tolerance Assessment of Repairs to Pressurized Fuselages
Provides guidance to operators of certain transport category airplanes operated under 14 CFR Parts 91, 121, 125, and 129. The guidance provides an acceptable means of compliance with the regulations that require incorporating FAA-approved “repair assessment guidelines” into an operator’s FAA-approved maintenance or inspection program. The means of compliance described is intended to provide guidance to supplement the engineering and operational judgment that must form the basis of any compliance findings relative to repair assessments for pressurized fuselages.
Maintenance Resource Management Training
Presents guidelines for developing, implementing, reinforcing, and accessing Maintenance Resources Management Training Programs for improving communication effectiveness, and safety in maintenance operations.
Criteria for Approval of Category III Weather Minima for Takeoff, Landing, and Rollout
