The listed means of compliance have been found acceptable and historically successful, but they are not the only methods that can be used to show compliance. In some cases, highly sophisticated airplanes may require more accurate or substantial solutions. Accordingly, the FAA is proposing and requesting comments on AC 23.1419-2C.
