Discussion

    By separate notices published in different issues of the Federal 
Register, the FAA proposes to amend several sections of 14 CFR part 25, 
and proposes to add a new Subpart I to update the regulations. The 
proposed AC 25-XX would provide generic guidance for demonstrating 
compliance with the proposed Subpart I safety initiatives. The methods 
and procedures described in this proposed AC are similar to those used 
for certification projects. This proposed AC represents one acceptable 
means, but not the only means, of compliance with certain aspects of 
the proposed Subpart I safety initiatives.
    Issuance of the proposed AC is contingent on issuance of the 
proposed safety initiatives (i.e., Enhanced Airworthiness Program for 
Airplane Systems, Reduction of Fuel Tank Flammability in Transport 
Category Airplanes, Aging Airplane Safety, and Widespread Fatigue 
Damage).
