This revised draft order redefines the responsibilities and procedures for Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) aircraft certification personnel responsible for the certification process required by Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations for civil aircraft, aircraft engines, and propellers. In redefining those responsibilities and procedures, the FAA provides updated guidance to their personnel and industry on policy and procedures for the type certification of aircraft products. The order has been revised extensively to incorporate information from FAA Order 8110.44, Conformity Inspection Notification Process; FAA Order 8100.5, Aircraft Certification Directorate Procedures; FAA Order 8110.48, How to Establish the Certification Basis for Changed Aeronautical Products; among other directives. This proposed revision also incorporates a revised type certification process model that more accurately depicts the complexities of the process.
