90-109 AFS-800 Airmen Transition to Experimental or Unfamiliar Airplanes (Cancelled)

This advisory circular (AC) provides information and guidance to owners and pilots of experimental airplanes and to flight instructors who teach in these airplanes. This information and guidance contains recommendations for training experience for pilots of experimental airplanes in a variety of groupings based on performance and handling characteristics. This AC does not address the testing of newly built experimental airplanes. The current edition of AC 90-89, Amateur-Built Aircraft and Ultralight Flight Testing Handbook, provides information on such testing. However, if a pilot is planning on participating in a flight-test program in an unfamiliar experimental airplane, this AC should be used to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to safely accomplish the test program using AC 90-89. This AC may also be useful in planning the transition to any unfamiliar fixed-wing airplanes, including type-certificated (TC) airplanes.

25-7B ANM-110 Flight Test Guide for Certification of Transport Category Airplanes (Cancelled)

This advisory circular (AC) provides guidance for the flight test evaluation of transport category airplanes. This AC includes flight test methods and procedures to show compliance with the regulations contained in subpart B of Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 25, which address airplane performance and handling characteristics. Part 25 has been amended significantly since the last revision of this AC and, likewise, guidance and policy have changed in many areas as experience has been gained. During this time period, technology has advanced as well, resulting in a need for new or modified test techniques. This revision, AC 25-7B, adds acceptable means of compliance for the regulatory changes associated with amendments 108, 109, and 115 to part 25, and a revised means of compliance for expansion of takeoff and landing data for higher airport elevations. Means of compliance associated with flight in icing conditions was removed as this material is now contained in AC 25-25.

120-106 AFS-300 Scope and Recommended Content for a Contractual Agreement Between an Air Carrier and a Contract Maintenance Provider (Cancelled)

 This advisory circular (AC) describes the scope and recommended content requirements for contractual agreements between an air carrier and a contract maintenance provider (CMP). It explains the background and the necessity to interject specific requirements into a contractual agreement to ensure the air carrier fully supports the requirements imposed by Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR). Because the air carrier has the primary responsibility for the airworthiness of its aircraft it must ensure the proper controls are in place to assess, qualify, and authorize work performed for it by other persons, regardless of whether the performance of work is by a certificated or noncertificated CMP.

121-22B AFS-300 Maintenance Review Board Report Maintenance Type Board, and OEM/TCH Inspection Program Procedures (Cancelled)

This advisory circular (AC) provides guidelines that industry may use to develop and revise the minimum scheduled interval/tasking requirements for derivative or newly type-certificated aircraft and powerplants for Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approval. This AC refers to these minimum scheduled interval/tasking requirements as the Maintenance Review Board Report (MRBR), Maintenance Type Board. After FAA approval, the requirements become a basis upon which operators develop their own individual maintenance programs. The report will become a living report for each type-certificate holder.

Use this AC to standardize development, implementation, and update of FAA-approved minimum scheduled maintenance/inspection requirements.

120-87B AFS-200 Use of Child Restraint Systems on Aircraft (Cancelled)

This advisory circular (AC) provides information and practices regarding the use of child restraint systems (CRS) on aircraft. We intend for operators to use this as a resource during the development, implementation, and revision of an air carrier’s standard operating procedures (SOP) and training programs regarding the use of CRSs. This AC is one of several Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) initiatives designed to address safety concerns of the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). In addition, it is a part of the FAA’s ongoing commitment to educate and inform aircraft operators, crewmembers, and airline passengers regarding the use of CRSs on aircraft in order to encourage and increase the use of approved CRSs.

120-70B AFS-460 Operational Authorization Process for use of Data Link Communication System (Cancelled)

This advisory circular (AC) presents various methods for operators of different data link systems to meet international standards set by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the regional airspace authorities. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) notes that there is presently no requirement in Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) to have data link communications when operating in the National Airspace System (NAS). Instead, the regulations in 14 CFR govern radio communication systems, and nothing in this AC relieves an operator from the requirement to have and use a voice communication system when operating in international airspace or the NAS. However, operators that choose to operate in a reduced separation standard that requires the use of a data link system (in addition to the required voice communication system) must obtain FAA design approval and a revision to their 14 CFR part 121, 125, 125M, or 135 operation specifications (OpSpecs), part 91 subpart K (part 91K) management specifications (MSpecs) or part 91 letter of authorization (LOA), as applicable. The original AC 120-70 was applicable to Aeronautical Telecommunication Network (ATN), very high frequency (VHF) data link (VDL) Mode 2 communication systems. The Future Air Navigation System (FANS) 1/A system used in oceanic and remote airspace is an analog system which communicates over Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS). Guidance is needed for the operation of all systems and therefore the first revision AC 120-70A, was created.

120-102 AFS-300 Incorporation of Electrical Wiring interconnection Systems Instructions for Continued Airworthiness into and Operator's Maintenance Program. (Cancelled)

 On November 8, 2007, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) published the Enhanced Airworthiness Program for Airplane Systems/Fuel Tank Safety (EAPAS/FTS) final rule. The intent of the rule is to help ensure the continued safety of commercial airplanes by improving the design, installation, and maintenance of electrical wiring systems. Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 121, § 121.1111, and part 129, § 129.111 include requirements for operators to revise their maintenance programs to include instructions for continued airworthiness (ICA), which include inspections and procedures for the electrical wiring interconnection systems (EWIS). This advisory circular (AC) only addresses the EWIS requirements and provides guidance accordingly. The current edition of AC 120-97, Incorporation of Fuel Tank System Instructions for Continued Airworthiness into Operator Maintenance or Inspection Programs, provides guidance for operators to comply with the fuel tank safety (FTS) requirements in the EAPAS/FTS rule.

120-68E AFS-200 Pilot Records Improvement Act of 1996 (Cancelled)

This advisory circular (AC) provides information that may be used to comply with the provisions of Title 49 of the United States Code (49 U.S.C.) § 44703(h), (i), and (j). This law is commonly referred to as the Pilot Records Improvement Act (PRIA) of 1996. PRIA requires the gathering and sharing of information relating to a pilot/applicant’s qualification and safety background. An air carrier or air operator is required to request those records so it can make an informed decision before hiring a pilot/applicant. PRIA shall apply to any hiring air carrier or air operator whether the pilot is hired directly or by contract. (See paragraph 1-4c.)
