Authority for This Action
Section 44701(a)(5) of title 49 of the U.S.C. requires the Administrator to promulgate regulations and minimum standards for other practices, methods, and procedures necessary for safety in air commerce and national security. Consistent with this authority, the Administrator publishes FSB Reports for use by FAA employees who approve training programs, FAA employees and designees who certify airmen, and aircraft operators and training providers, to assist them in developing their flightcrew member training, checking, and currency. Additionally, the Administrator publishes this notice consistent with this same authority.
In September 2020, the FAA completed an operational evaluation of proposed operating procedures (checklists) and pilot training as a result of The Boeing Company Model 737-8 and 737-9 (737 MAX) design changes. The operational evaluation identified potential refinements to this Airplane Flight Manual (AFM) non-normal checklist Airspeed Unreliable. This AFM non-normal procedure was referenced in the NPRM Airworthiness Directives; The Boeing Company Airplanes (85 FR 47698). The FAA has posted the draft Boeing 737 FSB Report and an addendum to the Boeing 737 FSB Report, describing the potential refinements to the non-normal checklist at https://www.faa.gov/aircraft/draft_docs/fsb/.
The FAA invites public comments on the draft FSB Report, The Boeing Company 737, Revision 17, including the FSB Report addendum.
