The NRC staff is issuing, for public comment, this draft environmental assessment (EA) and finding of no significant impact (FONSI) associated with the proposed exemptions.

Special Conditions: Airbus Model A319-151n/171n, A320-251n/271n, and A321-251n/271n (SAneo) Series Airplanes; Transient Engine-Failure Loads
Document Number: 2015-10098
Type: Rule
Date: 2015-04-30
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These special conditions are issued for Airbus Model A319- 151n/171n, A320-251n/271n, and A321-251n/271n (collectively known as Single Aisle new engine option (SA neo)) series airplanes. These airplanes will have a novel or unusual design feature when compared to the state of technology envisioned in the airworthiness standards for transport-category airplanes. This design feature is a new generation of high-bypass engines, and the potential loads resulting from extreme engine-failure conditions. The applicable airworthiness regulations do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for this design feature. These special conditions contain the additional safety standards that the Administrator considers necessary to establish a level of safety equivalent to that established by the existing airworthiness standards.
