Here, key the ecclesiastical music, insert the visual of the clouds parting and Jack Pelton descending the mount with the stone tablets, or at least a USB drive announcing something intriguing. We heard over the weekend that a proposal is coming from the FAA to raise the light sport weight limit to pounds. Riding to the pancake breakfast in style at last. Pour that out of the blender and you get pound single-engine piston airplanes that a pilot could fly with up to six occupants, with driver's license certification.
Restrained means the pilot is in the control loop hands on and unrestrained means the pilot is not in the control loop hands off. NTE is Not to Exceed.
Amendment and Subsequent This section was changed by DocketAmendmentas follows: Since trim indicators on most airplanes are currently marked with the neutral position of the trimming device, this proposal would standardize the cockpit markings for all airplanes.
Revised paragraph a would also add a requirement for the pitch trim indicator to be marked with the proper pitch trim range for the takeoff of the airplane.
Some takeoff accidents, including some involving fatalities, have occurred because the pitch trim was not set to the proper range needed for the airplane takeoff. Because of this accident experience, most of the current airplane manufacturers mark the pitch trim indicator with the pitch trim range for takeoff.
Therefore, the proposed marking requirement would not have a significant impact on future airplane designs and would ensure that the markings needed for a safe takeoff are provided for the pilots use. Original Issue and Subsequent Section Several accidents have occurred because the pilot did not remove the control system lock prior to takeoff.
Many such accidents relate to internally applied locks, mostly pins installed at the control wheel column. Misuse and alteration of these installed locking devices, together with neglect by the pilot to perform a control freedom check before takeoff, contributed to such accidents.
When evaluating a control lock system, the following factors should be considered in finding compliance with the applicable regulation: The warning should be easily observable during both day and night operations.
Color, location, shape, and accessibility of the device, ease of removal with the pilot seated in the flying position, and legibility of any placards, etc. The system operation should be obvious. It should be possible to apply the lock only in such a manner that the required warning is provided.
When engaged, the lock should, by design, limit the operation of the airplane so that the pilot receives unmistakable warning in the cockpit before or at the start of takeoff by an effective means, such as one of the following: For airplanes with separate locks for throttle and control column, where one lock e.
Amendment and Subsequent This amendment, changed by Final Rule, Docketstates as follows: The proposal did not mandate the installation of an automatic system, but would add an optional provision that would show the acceptance of such systems.
The JAA stated its assumption that the proposed requirement would not be applicable to external locks. Based on the comments received, the FAA has re-examined the proposal. Since the proposal would have eliminated the current Section The FAA has determined that there is a need to retain the provision of current Section The added provision of Section The proposal to limit the operation of the airplane when the locks are engaged is being restated since control locks and their warnings can be overlooked and automatic disengage systems will fail.
