FAA Advisory Circular 142-1, Standardized Curricula Delivered by Part 142 Training Centers
Document Number: 2020-11894
Type: Notice
Date: 2020-06-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
This notice announces the availability of FAA Advisory Circular (AC) 142-1, Standardized Curricula Delivered by Part 142 Training Centers. The AC introduces the standardized curriculum concept for training provided by part 142 training centers and describes the associated benefits of this voluntary approach. This AC provides guidance to part 142 training centers on how to obtain approval to deliver a standardized curriculum to part 135 operators, including guidance on how a part 142 training center may qualify its personnel as instructors and check pilots under part 135. This AC also provides guidance on how a part 135 operator may obtain approval to use a standardized curriculum as part of its training program. Voluntary use of standardized curricula for part 135 training promotes safety and increases administrative efficiency for industry. Based on these benefits, the FAA believes that most part 135 training provided by part 142 training centers will occur through standardized curricula after implementation.

Airworthiness Directives; Textron Aviation, Inc. Airplanes
Document Number: 2020-11351
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-06-02
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
The FAA proposes to supersede Airworthiness Directive (AD) 2019-08-13 for Textron Aviation, Inc. (type certificate previously held by Cessna Aircraft Company) Models 525, 525A, and 525B airplanes with Tamarack active load alleviation system (ATLAS) winglets installed in accordance with Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) SA03842NY. AD 2019- 08-13 resulted from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) originated by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as malfunction of the ATLAS. This AD results from the identification of corrective actions that, if implemented, allow operators to reactivate the ATLAS and restore operations to normal procedures. The FAA is proposing this AD to address the unsafe condition on these products.
