AGENCY: This notice announces the availability of one new and six revised consensus standards relating to the SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:32 Mar 31, 2017 Jkt 241001 provisions of the Sport Pilot and LightSport Aircraft rule issued July 16, 2004, and effective September 1, 2004. ASTM International Committee F37 on Light Sport-Aircraft developed the new and revised standards with FAA participation. By this notice, the FAA finds the new and revised standards acceptable for certification of the specified aircraft under the provisions of the Sport Pilot and Light-Sport Aircraft rule.

This notice announces the availability of one new and six revised consensus standards that supersede previously accepted consensus standards relating to the provisions of the Sport Pilot and Light-Sport Aircraft rule. ASTM International Committee F37 on LightSport Aircraft developed the new and revised standards. The FAA expects a suitable consensus standard to be reviewed periodically. The review cycle will result in a standard revision or reapproval. A standard is revised to make changes to its technical content or is reapproved to indicate a review cycle has been completed with no technical changes. A standard is issued under a fixed designation (e.g., F2245); the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of last revision. A number in parentheses following the year of original adoption or revision indicates the year of last reapproval. For example, F2242–05(2013) designates a standard that was originally adopted (or revised) in 2005 and reapproved in 2013. A superscript epsilon (e) indicates an editorial change since the last SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00116 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 16271 revision or reapproval. A notice of availability (NOA) will only be issued for new or revised standards. Reapproved standards issued with no technical changes or standards issued with editorial changes only (i.e., superscript epsilon [e]) are considered accepted by the FAA without need for an NOA. Comments Invited: Interested persons are invited to submit such written data, views, or arguments, as they may desire. Communications should identify the consensus standard number and be submitted to the address specified above. All communications received on or before the closing date for comments will be forwarded to ASTM International Committee F37 for consideration. The standard may be changed in light of the comments received. The FAA will address all comments received during the recurring review of the consensus standard and will participate in the consensus standard revision process. Background: Under the provisions of the Sport Pilot and Light-Sport Aircraft rule, and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A–119, ‘‘Federal Participation in the Development and Use of Voluntary Consensus Standards and in Conformity Assessment Activities’’, revised January 27, 2016, industry and the FAA have been working with ASTM International to develop consensus standards for lightsport aircraft. These consensus standards satisfy the FAA’s goal for airworthiness certification and a verifiable minimum safety level for light-sport aircraft. Instead of developing airworthiness standards through the rulemaking process, the FAA participates as a member of Committee F37 in developing these standards. The use of the consensus standard process facilitates government and industry discussion and agreement on appropriate standards for the required level of safety. Comments on Previous Notices of Availability In the previous Notice of Availability (NOA) issued on March 27, 2015, and published in the Federal Register on April 16, 2015 the FAA asked for public comments on the revised consensus standards accepted by that NOA. The comment period closed on June 15, 2015. No public comments were received regarding the standards accepted by this NOA. Consensus Standards in This Notice of Availability The FAA has reviewed the standards presented in this NOA for compliance E:\FR\FM\03APN1.SGM 03APN1
