Understanding Part 23 Rewrite

On March 9, 2016, the FAA published a notice of proposed rulemaking entitled “Revision of Airworthiness Standards for Normal, Utility, Acrobatic, and Commuter Category Airplanes” (Part 23 NPRM). The purpose of the proposed rulemaking is to amend the airworthiness standards for normal, utility, acrobatic, and commuter category airplanes certified under 14 CFR Part 23 by removing the current prescriptive design requirements and replacing them with performance-based airworthiness standards.
