ASTM Sets January Meeting For GA Committee

Held In Conjunction With Part 23 ARC Meeting In Daytona, FL

ASTM International will hold a meeting of its F44 committee early in January in conjunction with its Part 23 ARC meeting in Daytona Beach, FL. The sessions will be held January 10th and 11th on the campus of Embry-Riddle University.

The Committee F44 on General Aviation Aircraft addresses issues related to design and construction, systems and performance, quality acceptance tests, and safety monitoring for general aviation aircraft (also known as Part 23) that is less than 19,000 pounds and 12 passengers.

Through the establishment of a Part 23 Aviation Rulemaking Committee (ARC), industry expressed an interest in evolving Part 23 regulations into a more performance based document, reliant on standards for the design and performance of aircraft, in order to leverage all the benefits that referencing standards has to offer. Ultimately, the desire is to reduce the regulatory burden on the industry (and therefore the cost of the aircraft) and leverage standards to allow technology to be readily updated in a streamlined certification process where appropriate.

Committee F44 normally meets twice a year, usually in April and October, with 50 members attending two to three days of technical meetings. The meetings are scheduled in conjunction with ASTM committees F37 on Light Sport Aircraft and F39 on Aircraft Systems along with industry trade and airshows. The Committee, with a membership of approximately 100, currently has jurisdiction of over 6 draft standards. F44 standards will be published in the Annual Book of ASTM Standards, Volume 15.11. F44 has 6 technical subcommittees that maintain jurisdiction over these standards.
