The intent of this proposed policy is to provide guidance for conducting a propeller safety analysis. Although part 35 of Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR part 35) does not explicitly require a safety analysis, safety analyses are frequently conducted to support part 35 requirements, special conditions, and aircraft manufacturer certification requirements. The proposed policy would not establish new requirements.
