Comments Invited

The proposed policy statement is available on the Internet at the following address: http://www.airweb.faa.gov/​rgl. If you do not have access to the Internet, you may request a copy by contacting the individual listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. The FAA invites interested parties to comment on the proposed policy.

Background

The proposed policy statement would supersede FAA policy number 2000-33.87-R2, issued April 21, 2000. The intent of this proposed policy is to establish a uniform approach for Aircraft Certification Offices (ACOs) to evaluate and approve a 2-minute gas temperature limit caused by thermal mismatch of engine hardware or flight conditions during acceleration to takeoff power. The FAA has revised this policy to provide guidance for demonstrating a 2-minute gas temperature limit within the 5-minute time limit associated with the takeoff power or thrust rating. The proposed policy would not establish new requirements.
