The FAA issues special conditions, as defined in 14 CFR 11.19, in accordance with § 11.38, and they become part of the type certification basis under § 21.101. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with RULES Novel or Unusual Design Features The Airbus DS C–295 series airplane will incorporate the following novel or unusual design feature: Airplane electronic systems and networks that allow access from external sources (e.g., wireless devices, internet connectivity) to the airplane’s previously isolated, internal electronic components. Discussion The Airbus DS C–295 series airplane architecture and network configuration may allow increased connectivity to, and access from, external network sources and airline operations and maintenance networks to the airplane control domain and airline information services domain. The airplane control domain and airline information services domain perform functions required for the safe operation and maintenance of the airplane. Previously, these domains had very limited connectivity with external network sources. The architecture and network configuration may allow the exploitation of network security vulnerabilities resulting in intentional or unintentional destruction, disruption, degradation, or exploitation of data, systems, and networks critical to the safety and maintenance of the airplane. The existing regulations and guidance material did not anticipate these types of airplane system architectures. Furthermore, 14 CFR regulations and the current system safety assessment policy and techniques do not address potential security vulnerabilities, which could be exploited by unauthorized access to airplane networks, data buses, and servers. Therefore, these special conditions are to ensure that the security (i.e., confidentiality, integrity, and availability) of airplane systems is not compromised by unauthorized wired or wireless electronic connections. 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. Applicability As discussed above, these special conditions are applicable to the Airbus VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:16 Feb 03, 2020 Jkt 250001 DS C–295 series airplane. Should Airbus DS apply at a later date for a change to the type certificate to include another model incorporating the same novel or unusual design feature, these special conditions would apply to that model as well.

Background On August 2, 2018, Airbus DS applied for a change to Type Certificate No. A21NM to update the Avionics System Rockwell Collins Proline II to the Avionics System based on Proline Fusion in the Airbus DS C–295 series airplane. The Airbus DS C–295 series VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:16 Feb 03, 2020 Jkt 250001 airplane, currently approved under Type Certificate No. A21NM, is a twinengine, transport category airplane configured for freighter use, with a maximum takeoff weight of 46,300 pounds. Type Certification Basis Under the provisions of title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 21.101, Airbus DS must show that the C–295 series airplane, as changed, meets the applicable provisions of the regulations listed in Type Certificate No. A21NM, or the applicable regulations in effect on the date of application for the change, except for earlier amendments as agreed upon by the FAA. If the Administrator finds that the applicable airworthiness regulations (i.e., 14 CFR part 25) do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for the Airbus DS C–295 series airplane because of a novel or unusual design feature, special conditions are prescribed under the provisions of § 21.16. Special conditions are initially applicable to the model for which they are issued. Should the type certificate for that model be amended later to include any other model that incorporates the same novel or unusual design feature, or should any other model already included on the same type certificate be modified to incorporate the same novel or unusual design feature, these special conditions would also apply to the other model under § 21.101. In addition to the applicable airworthiness regulations and special conditions, the Airbus DS C–295 series airplane must comply with the fuel vent and exhaust emission requirements of 14 CFR part 34 and the noise certification requirements of 14 CFR part 36. The FAA issues special conditions, as defined in 14 CFR 11.19, in accordance with § 11.38, and they become part of the type certification basis under § 21.101. Novel or Unusual Design Features The Airbus DS C–295 series airplane will incorporate the following novel or unusual design feature: Airplane electronic systems and networks that allow access, from airplane internal sources (e.g., wireless devices, internet connectivity), to the airplane’s previously isolated, internal electronic components. Discussion The Airbus DS C–295 series airplane electronic network system architecture is novel or unusual for commercial PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 6027 transport airplanes because it allows connection to previously isolated data networks connected to systems that perform functions required for the safe operation of the airplane.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On July 2, 2018, Boeing applied for a supplemental type certificate for the modification of the Boeing Model 747– 8 series airplane. The Boeing Model 747–8 currently approved under Type Certificate No. A20WE, is an extended range passenger version of the Boeing Model 747–400 series airplane with four General Electric engines having changes to increase its strength and fuel capacity. The modification incorporates the installation of an electrically heated surface, called a cooktop. Cooktops introduce high heat, smoke, and the possibility of fire into the passenger cabin environment. These potential hazards to the airplane and its occupants must be satisfactorily addressed. Since existing airworthiness regulations do not contain safety standards addressing cooktops, special conditions are needed. Type Certification Basis Under the provisions of title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 21.101, Boeing must show that the Model 747– 8 series airplane, as changed, continues to meet the applicable provisions of the regulations listed in Type Certificate No. A20WE or the applicable regulations in effect on the date of application for the change, except for earlier amendments as agreed upon by the FAA. If the Administrator finds that the applicable airworthiness regulations (e.g., 14 CFR part 25) do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards for the Boeing Model 747–8 airplane because of a novel or unusual design feature, special conditions are prescribed under the provisions of § 21.16. Special conditions are initially applicable to the model for which they are issued. Should the applicant apply for a supplemental type certificate to modify any other model included on the same type certificate to incorporate the same novel or unusual design feature, these special conditions would also apply to the other model under § 21.101. In addition to the applicable airworthiness regulations and special conditions, the Boeing Model 747–8 airplane must comply with the fuel vent and exhaust emission requirements of 14 CFR part 34 and the noise PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 certification requirements of 14 CFR part 36. The FAA issues special conditions, as defined in 14 CFR 11.19, in accordance with § 11.38, and they become part of the type certification basis under § 21.101. Novel or Unusual Design Features The modification of the Boeing Model 747–8 series airplane will incorporate a novel or unusual design feature, which is the installation of cooktops in the passenger cabin. Cooktops introduce high heat, smoke, and the possibility of fire into the passenger cabin environment. The current airworthiness standards of part 25 do not contain adequate or appropriate safety standards to protect the airplane and its occupants from these potential hazards. Discussion Currently, ovens are the prevailing means of heating food on airplanes. Ovens are characterized by an enclosure that contains both the heat source and the food being heated. The hazards represented by ovens are thus inherently limited, and are well understood through years of service experience. Cooktops, on the other hand, are characterized by exposed heat sources and the presence of relatively unrestrained hot cookware and heated food, which may represent unprecedented hazards to both occupants and the airplane. Cooktops could have serious passenger and airplane safety implications if appropriate requirements are not established for their installation and use. These special conditions apply to cooktops with electrically powered burners. The use of an open flame cooktop (for example, natural gas) is beyond the scope of these special conditions and would require separate rulemaking action. The requirements identified in these special conditions are in addition to those considerations identified in Advisory Circular (AC) 20– 168, Certification Guidance for Installation of Non-Essential, NonRequired Aircraft Cabin Systems & Equipment (CS&E), dated July 22, 2010, and those in AC 25–17A, Transport Airplane Cabin Interiors Crashworthiness Handbook, Change 1, dated May 24, 2016. The intent of these special conditions is to provide a level of safety that is consistent with that on similar airplanes without cooktops. The 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.

Register.

Comments Invited

    The FAA invites interested people to take part in this rulemaking 
by sending written comments, data, or views. The most helpful comments 
reference a specific portion of the special conditions, explain the 
reason for any recommended change, and include supporting data.
    The FAA will consider all comments received by the closing date for

comments received.

Background

    On August 2, 2018, Airbus DS applied for a change to Type 
Certificate No. A21NM to update the Avionics System Rockwell Collins 
Proline II to the Avionics System based on Proline Fusion in the Airbus 
DS C-295 series airplane. The Airbus DS C-295 series airplane, 
currently approved under Type Certificate No. A21NM, is a twin-engine, 
transport category airplane configured for freighter use, with a 
maximum takeoff weight of 46,300 pounds.

Type Certification Basis

    Under the provisions of title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 
CFR) 21.101, Airbus DS must show that the C-295 series airplane, as 
changed, meets the applicable provisions of the regulations listed in 
Type Certificate No. A21NM, or the applicable regulations in effect on 
the date of application for the change, except for earlier amendments 
as agreed upon by the FAA.
    If the Administrator finds that the applicable airworthiness 
regulations (i.e., 14 CFR part 25) do not contain adequate or 
appropriate safety standards for the Airbus DS C-295 series airplane 
because of a novel or unusual design feature, special conditions are 
prescribed under the provisions of Sec.  21.16.
    Special conditions are initially applicable to the model for which 
they are issued. Should the type certificate for that model be amended 
later to include any other model that incorporates the same novel or 
unusual design feature, or should any other model already included on 
the same type certificate be modified to incorporate the same novel or 
unusual design feature, these special conditions would also apply to 
the other model under Sec.  21.101.
    In addition to the applicable airworthiness regulations and special 
conditions, the Airbus DS C-295 series airplane must comply with the 
fuel vent and exhaust emission requirements of 14 CFR part 34 and the 
noise certification requirements of 14 CFR part 36.
    The FAA issues special conditions, as defined in 14 CFR 11.19, in 
accordance with Sec.  11.38, and they become part of the type 
certification basis under Sec.  21.101.

Novel or Unusual Design Features

    The Airbus DS C-295 series airplane will incorporate the following 
novel or unusual design feature:
    Airplane electronic systems and networks that allow access, from 
airplane internal sources (e.g., wireless devices, internet 
connectivity), to the airplane's previously isolated, internal 
electronic components.

Discussion

    The Airbus DS C-295 series airplane electronic network system 
architecture is novel or unusual for commercial transport airplanes 
because it allows connection to previously isolated data networks 
connected to systems that perform functions required for the safe 
operation of the airplane. This data network and design integration may 
result in security vulnerabilities from intentional or unintentional 
corruption of data and systems critical to the safety and maintenance 
of the airplane. The existing regulations and guidance material did not 
anticipate this type of system architecture or electronic access to 
airplane systems. Furthermore, 14 CFR regulations and the current 
system safety assessment policy and techniques do not address potential 
security vulnerabilities, which could be exploited by unauthorized 
access to airplane networks and servers. Therefore, these special 
conditions are to ensure that the security of airplane systems and 
networks is not compromised by unauthorized wired or wireless internal 
access.
    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.

Applicability

    As discussed above, these special conditions are applicable to the 
Airbus DS C-295 series airplane. Should Airbus DS apply at a later date 
for a change to the type certificate to include another model 
incorporating the same novel or unusual design feature, these special 
conditions would apply to that model as well.

Conclusion

    This action affects only a certain novel or unusual design feature 
on Airbus DS C-295 series airplane. It is not a rule of general 
applicability.
