The FAA is requesting comment on draft Advisory Circular (AC) 43-ARTS, which provides instructions for use of the airworthiness approval tag.
If issued in its current form, the new AC would address requirements for a single and dual release, as well as recognize electronic generation and digital signatures. Initial industry feedback suggests that the draft document is a significant departure from current regulatory interpretation and policy.
The original deadline to provide comment was extended in response to an industry coalition request. Comment is due June 12.
