Title 14 published on 2013-01-01
The following are only the Rules published in the Federal Register after the published date of Title 14.
For a complete list of all Rules, Proposed Rules, and Notices view the Rulemaking tab.
This document is an issuance of Final Airworthiness design criteria for night visual flight rules (VFR) expansion and substantiation for the Aquila GmbH AT01. These additional provisions are expansions of the existing JAR-VLA (Joint Aviation Requirements—Very Light Aircraft) and CS-VLA regulations to include Night-VFR. The current regulations only allow Day-VFR, but the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) is expanding the VLA regulations for this type of airplane through EASA special conditions. These FAA design criteria are being proposed to be the same as the EASA Special Conditions. The original certification of the aircraft was done under the provisions of 14 CFR part 21, § 21.29, as a 14 CFR part 21, § 21.17(b), special class aircraft, JAR-VLA, using the requirements of JAR-VLA Amendment VLA/92/01 as developed by the Joint Aviation Authority, and under Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations and two additional design criteria issued on September 2, 2003 (68 FR 56809).
On December 4, 2012, the FAA published a final rule; request for comments (77 FR 71691) to make the existing regulation consistent with the FAA's intent and with the certification practice both before and after the adoption of the existing rule. The 2012 final rule clarifies what an applicant must show regarding a “changed product” to comply with applicable standards and became effective on February 4, 2013. We sought public comment on that final rule even though it is only clarifying in nature. This action responds to the public comments the FAA received.
This rule amends the regulations governing noise certification standards for issuing type and airworthiness certificates for a new civil, hybrid airplane-rotorcraft known as the tiltrotor. This noise standard establishes new noise limits and procedures as the basis to ensure consistent aviation noise reduction technology is incorporated in tiltrotors for environmental protection. It provides uniform noise certification standards for tiltrotors certificated in the United States and harmonizes the U.S. regulations with the standards of the International Civil Aviation Organization's (ICAO) Annex 16.

This notice announces the issuance of the design criteria for Night visual flight rules (VFR) expansion and substantiation for the Aquila GmbH AT01. These additional provisions are expansions of the existing JAR-VLA (Joint Aviation Requirements—Very Light Aircraft) and CS-VLA regulations to include Night VFR.
