Sets forth an acceptable means, but not the only means, of demonstrating compliance with the provisions of Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 25 pertaining to the certification requirements for windshields, windows, and mounting structure. Guidance information is provided for showing compliance with § 25.775(d), relating to structural design of windshields and windows for airplanes with pressurized cabins. Terms used in this AC, such as “shall” or “must,” are used only in the sense of ensuring applicability of this particular method of compliance when the acceptable method of compliance described herein is used. Other methods of compliance with the requirements may be acceptable. While these guidelines are not mandatory, they are derived from extensive Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and industry experience in determining compliance with 14 CFR. This AC does not change, create any additional, authorize changes in, or permit deviations from, regulatory requirements.
