Items of mass to be considered include, but are not limited to, rotors, transmissions, and engines. The items of mass must be restrained for the following ultimate inertial load factors: (1) Upward—1.5g. (2) Forward—4.0g. (3) Sideward—2.0g. (4) Downward—4.0g VAT.785 Seats and berths: (a) The seats and berths, and their supporting structures, must be designed for loads resulting from the specified flight and landing conditions, including the emergency landing conditions of VAT.561. (b) The reactions from safety belts and harnesses must be considered. (c) Each pilot seat must be designed for the reactions resulting from the application of the pilot forces prescribed in Sec. 27.397. (d) The structural analysis and testing of the structures specified in paragraphs (a) through (c) may be simplified— (1) By assuming that the critical load in each direction, as determined from the prescribed flight, ground, and emergency landing conditions, acts separately; or (2) By using selected combinations of loads, if the required strength in the specified directions is proven. (e) Each occupant’s seat must have a combined safety belt and shoulder harness with a single-point release. Each pilot’s combined safety belt and shoulder harness must allow each pilot, when seated with safety belt and shoulder harness fastened, to perform all functions necessary for flight operations. There must be a means to secure belts and harnesses, when not in use, to prevent interference with the operation of the rotorcraft and with rapid egress in an emergency. (f) Each occupant must be protected from serious head injury by a safety belt plus a shoulder harness that will prevent the head from contacting any injurious object. (g) The safety belt and shoulder harness must meet the static strength requirements specified by this rotorcraft type certification basis. VAT.963 Fuel tanks: general: Each flexible fuel tank bladder or liner must be approved or shown to be suitable for the particular application and must be puncture-resistant. Puncture resistance must be shown by meeting TSO–C80 paragraph 16.0 requirements using a minimum puncture force of 250 pounds. 14 CFR 36 through amendment 36–30 as follows: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:23 Dec 20, 2018 Jkt 247001 • Subpart H Issued in Ft.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Sfmt 4700 The FAA’s authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is found in Title 49 of the United States Code. Subtitle I, Section 106 describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, Aviation Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency’s authority. This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it establishes Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Sioux County Regional Airport, Maurice, IA, to support IFR operations at the airport. History On August 24, 2018, the FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (83 FR 42815) for Docket No. FAA–2018– 0671, to establish Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface at Sioux County Regional Airport, Maurice, IA.
