Airworthiness Standards: Safety Analysis
Document Number: E6-11372
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-07-18
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA is proposing to amend the safety analysis type certification standard for turbine aircraft engines. This proposal harmonizes the FAA's type certification standard for safety analysis with the corresponding standards of the Joint Aviation Authorities (JAA) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). The proposed rule would establish a nearly uniform safety analysis standard for turbine aircraft engines certified in the United States under Part 33 of Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR part 33) and in European countries under Joint Aviation Requirements-Engines (JAR-E) and Certification Specifications-Engines (CS-E), thereby simplifying airworthiness approvals for import and export.
Special Conditions: Dassault Aviation Model Falcon 900EX and Falcon 2000EX Airplanes; Enhanced Flight Visibility System (EFVS)
Document Number: E6-11367
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-07-18
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These special conditions are issued for certain Dassault Aviation Model Falcon 900EX and Falcon 2000EX airplanes. These airplanes will have an advanced enhanced flight visibility system (EFVS). The EFVS is a novel or unusual design feature which consists of a head up display (HUD) system modified to display forward-looking infrared (FLIR) imagery. 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.
