120-71A AFS-210 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.

120-27E AFS-200/AFS-300 Aircraft Weight and Balance Control
Provides one means, but not the only means, for obtaining approval of a weight and balance control system. It provides guidance to certificate holders that are required to have an approved weight and balance program by Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 121 or choose to have an approved program under 14 CFR Part 135.
06-10-2005
120-49 AFS-200 Certification of Air Carriers
Provides information and guidance material on the certification process of air carriers under FAR Part 121 and Part 135. It provides information that can be used by applicants who desire to be certificated as an air carrier in accordance with FAR Part 121 and Part 135.

120-53B AFS-200 Guidance for Conduction and Use of Flight Standardization Board Evaluations

 

a. Evaluating Manufactured or Modified Aircraft. It provides a means but not the only means of evaluating manufactured or modified aircraft by the use of standard systems, processes, and tests necessary to determine pilot training and qualification requirements.

b. Differences in Training and Qualification between Aircraft. It describes an acceptable means, but not the only means, of compliance with applicable Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) that provide for differences in training and qualification between aircraft with the same type certificate. It further describes an acceptable means for providing related aircraft differences training and qualification under provision of 14 CFR part 121 between aircraft with different type certificates that have been "designated" by the Administrator as related. Both of these processes use the provision of the Flight Standardization Board (FSB) report as the basis for the approval of pilot training and qualification necessary for the operation of aircraft. This AC is intended to enhance safety by:

(1) Providing a standard method of assessing applicant programs.

(2) Directly relating pilot training and qualification requirements to fleet characteristics, operating concepts, and pilot assignments.

(3) Permitting better industry planning and management by outlining what FAA requirements apply, what training resources or devices are needed, and what alternatives are possible.

(4) Encouraging aircraft manufacturers to design with the goal of developing common characteristics between related aircraft

(5) Providing a recommended framework for application of suitable credits or constraints to better address new technology and future safety enhancements.

120-101 AFS-200 Part 121 Air Carrier Operational Control.

 

 

This advisory circular (AC) provides aviation safety inspectors (ASI) and air carrier management personnel with information to consider regarding certificate management and internal evaluation of operational control functions. This AC provides an accepted means, but not the only means for operators to comply with air carrier operational control regulations in Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 121, §§ 121.531 through 121.537, and guidance in Flight Standards Information Management System (FSIMS), Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Order 8900.1, Volume 3, Chapter 25, Operational Control for Air Carriers.

120-109 AFS-200 Stall and Stick Pusher Training

The information contained in this advisory circular (AC) was developed based on a review of recommended practices developed by major airplane manufacturers, labor organizations, air carriers, training organizations, simulator manufacturers, and industry representative organizations. This AC does not provide guidance for full aerodynamic stall training, which industry and government stakeholders are now developing. Once developed, this AC will be revised to include that guidance.

The goal of this AC is to provide best practices and guidance for training, testing, and checking for pilots, within existing regulations, to ensure correct and consistent responses to unexpected stall warnings and stick pusher activations. This AC emphasizes reducing the angle of attack (AOA) at the first indication of a stall as the primary means of approach-to-stall or stall recovery. Additionally, this AC provides guidance for operators and training centers in the development of stall and stick pusher event training.
