33-10 ANE-111 Statistical Analysis Considerations for Comparative Test and Analysis Based Compliance Findings for Turbine Engine and Auxiliary Power Unit Replacement, Redesign and Repaired Parts (Cancelled)

a.   This advisory circular (AC) describes acceptable statistical methods, but not the only methods, to help develop substantiating data for comparative test and analysis compliance findings. The findings support the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approval of turbine engine and auxiliary power unit (APU) replacement, redesign and repaired parts produced under:

(1)  Parts manufacturer approval (PMA),

(2)  Type Certificate (TC),

(3)  Supplemental Type Certificate (STC), or

(4)  Repair or alteration.

b.   The AC describes statistical principles that can be used to help determine adequate sample sizes for a comparative showing of equivalency of parts from different design or manufacturing processes. The guidance in this AC is acceptable for determining sample sizes and/or populations of specimens. The resulting data may be used to support a showing of compliance to the airworthiness requirements of Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 21.303, 14 CFR part 33, 14 CFR part 43 and Technical Standard Order (TSO) C77.

20-149A AIR-130 Installation Guidance for Domestic Flight Information Services - Broadcast (Cancelled)

 a. This advisory circular (AC) supports the use of Flight Information Services - Broadcast (FIS-B) weather and other aeronautical data link products for enhanced situation awareness of flight conditions. In this AC, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) recommends one way to gain airworthiness approval for the installation of FIS-B avionics equipment. We identify safety and installation requirements for continued airworthiness of aircraft FIS-B avionics equipment, systems, and applications. This AC is not mandatory and does not constitute a regulation. This AC describes an acceptable means, but not the only means, to gain airworthiness approval for your FIS-B avionics equipment. However, if you use the means described in this AC, you must follow it in its entirety.

b. FIS-B was introduced to improve safety and to increase the utility, efficiency, and capacity of the National Airspace System (NAS). Timely delivery of quality, accurate, and consistent information is utilized by pilots for assisting in operational decisions.

c. This AC was revised to remove outdated information on the Flight Information Services Data Link (FISDL) program and replace with the current FIS-B system while maintaining alternative third party subscription services.

120-109 AFS-200 Stall and Stick Pusher Training (Cancelled)

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.
