Airworthiness Directives; Boeing Model 737-300, -400, -500, -600, -700, -700C, -800, and -900 Series Airplanes
The FAA proposes to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Boeing Model 737-300, -400, -500, -600, -700, -700C, -800, and -900 series airplanes. This proposed AD would require installing a new circuit breaker, relays, and wiring to allow the flightcrew to turn off electrical power to the in-flight entertainment (IFE) systems and other non-essential electrical systems through a switch in the flight compartment, and doing other specified actions. This proposed AD results from an IFE systems review. We are proposing this AD to ensure that the flightcrew is able to turn off electrical power to IFE systems and other non-essential electrical systems through a switch in the flight compartment. The flightcrew's inability to turn off power to IFE systems and other non-essential electrical systems during a non-normal or emergency situation could result in the inability to control smoke or fumes in the airplane flight deck or cabin.
Policy Statement, 14 CFR Part 23, §§ 23.853, 23.855, 23.863 and 23.1359, Flammability of MIL-C-17/60, /93, /94, /113, /127, and /128 Coaxial Cable
Policy Statement PS-ACE100-2007-002, 14 CFR Part 23, Sec. Sec. 23.853, 23.855, 23.863 and 23.1359, Flammability of MIL-C- 17/60, /93, /94, /113, /127, and /128 Coaxial Cable clarifies certification policy on part 23 and the Airship Design Criteria (ADC). The policy statement clarifies part 23, Sec. Sec. 23.853, 23.855, 23.863 and 23.1359 for installing coaxial cable in part 23 aircraft. It applies to normal, utility, acrobatic, and commuter category airplanes. It also applies to non-rigid airships (ADC sections 4.39, 4.40 and 6.21) certificated in the normal category (14 CFR part 21, Sec. 21.17(b)) with nine passenger seats or less. Material in the policy is neither mandatory nor regulatory in nature and does not constitute a regulation.
