The Notice of Proposed Rulemaking would not apply the proposed new requirements to transport category airplanes designed solely for cargo carriage. However, AC 25.981–2 remains applicable to these airplanes, which must comply with the current flammability standards contained in Proposed Advisory Circular 25.981–2A, Fuel Tank Flammability Federal Aviation Administration, DOT.
