Federal Aviation Administration August 4, 2017 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Special Conditions: Embraer S.A., Model ERJ 190-300 Series Airplanes; Design Roll Maneuver for Electronic Flight Controls
Document Number: 2017-16417
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-08-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These special conditions are issued for the Embraer S.A. (Embraer) Model ERJ 190-300 series airplanes. These airplanes will have a novel or unusual design feature when compared to the state of technology envisioned in the airworthiness standards for transport category airplanes. This design feature is an electronic flight control system (EFCS) that provides control of the airplane through pilot inputs to the flight computer. 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.
Special Conditions: Airbus Model A330-841 and A330-941 (A330 NEO) Airplanes; Interaction of Systems and Structures
Document Number: 2017-16416
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-08-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These special conditions are issued for the Airbus Model A330 NEO airplanes. This airplane will have novel or unusual design features when compared to the state of technology envisioned in the airworthiness standards for transport-category airplanes. These design features include systems that, directly or as a result of failure or malfunction, affect airplane structural performance. 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.
Special Conditions: Embraer S.A. Model ERJ 190-300 Airplane; Interaction of Systems and Structures
Document Number: 2017-16415

Special Conditions: Embraer S.A. Model ERJ 190-300 Airplane; Flight Envelope Protection: Normal Load Factor (g) Limiting
Document Number: 2017-16414
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-08-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These special conditions are issued for the Embraer S.A. (Embraer) Model ERJ 190-300 airplane. This airplane will have a novel or unusual design feature when compared to the state of technology envisioned in the airworthiness standards for transport-category airplanes. This design feature involves flight-envelope protection functions that limit such flight parameters as, for example, angle of attack, normal load factor, attitude, bank angle, and speed during normal operation. 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.
Special Conditions: Bombardier Inc. Model BD-700-2A12 and BD-700-2A13 Airplanes; Fuselage Post-Crash Fire Survivability
Document Number: 2017-16413
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-08-04
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
These special conditions are issued for the Bombardier Inc. (Bombardier) Model BD-700-2A12 and BD-700-2A13 airplanes. These airplanes will have a novel or unusual design feature when compared to the state of technology envisioned in the airworthiness standards for transport category airplanes. This feature is an aluminum-lithium fuselage construction that may provide different levels of protection from post-crash fire threats than would similar airplanes constructed from traditional aluminum structure. 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.
