Avionics News August 2016 - 13

The topics have developed over time. The FAA has resolved
a number of topics that have been identified during these
forums. For those not yet resolved, long-term fixes have been
identified and are awaiting resources. The major issue of the
most recent forum was an update on the availability of ADS-B
Out solutions for the rotorcraft community, as well as the status of the upcoming Helicopter Emergency Medical Services
mandates. Although the rulemaking was labeled as the HEMS
mandate or HEMS rule, keep in mind that the rule contains
equipment mandates that cross both Part 91 and Part 135 operations independent of EMS operations.
Since the original inception of this forum, the FAA and
industry have resolved many of the issues that supported
the original semiannual forum. The fall forum will be combined with the FAA's 2016 International Rotorcraft Safety
Conference, which is scheduled for Oct. 25-27, 2016, in Hurst,
Texas, (near Fort Worth).
FAA-EASA Aviation Safety Conference
The annual summer gathering of aviation professionals from
around the world descended on Washington, D.C., as the FAA
played host to the 2016 conference. This year's conference, titled
Global Partnerships: The Capstone for Safety, was focused on
international cooperation. The AEA first participated in this conference in the organizational stages, financially supported the conference through sponsorship, and finally, as a participant on a number
of panel discussions. While originally an EASA (technically JAA)
- FAA conference, today the conference has grown to be a truly
international aviation safety forum supported by civil aviation
authorities worldwide. Most notably for AEA member companies,
in addition to EASA and FAA attendance, the AEA was able to
visit with CAA personnel from Brazil, Colombia, New Zealand
and Australia. Unfortunately, because of the extreme austerity
efforts currently underway with the Canada government, Transport
Canada Civil Aviation was notably absent from this "must-attend"
international authorities conference.
The conference alternates annually between Europe and the U.S.
While each authority conducts regional meetings to discuss legal,
regulatory and policy topics directly with their constituents, at this
international conference, the presentations focused on their global
aviation impact.
Latin American and Caribbean
Air Transport Association
June concluded with the seventh Pan American Aviation
Safety Summit in Panama, which was hosted by the Latin
American and Caribbean Air Transport Association, or ALTA.
While primarily focused on airline operations, this conference
provides an excellent forum for regulatory oversight of the
greater Latin American region, as well as an annual update of
the rollout on avionics mandates throughout the region. The
conference provides a number of valuable sessions applicable

to AEA members in Latin America. Most notably, the summit
included the annual update on the Regional Aviation Safety
Group-Pan American initiatives. The RASG-PA was established through the International Civil Aviation Organization in
November 2008 to be the focal point to ensure harmonization
and coordination of safety efforts aimed at reducing aviation
risks in the North American, Central American, Caribbean and
South American regions, and promote the implementation of
resulting safety initiatives by all stakeholders.
The other primary area of focus is the effort toward updating and modernizing avionics and avionics systems. One session titled, Reaching important milestones toward RNAV/PBN
implementation in the Latin American and Caribbean Region,
provided participants with the latest updates toward RNAV/PBN
implementation in the region. Another session titled, Addressing
Controlled Flight into Terrain risk in LATAM/CAR, reviewed
the importance of working with other areas within the airlines
to update systems and software.
It also is important to note that two major regions of Latin
America have ADS-B Out mandates that will affect nearly all
north-south flights. Both Colombia and Mexico have mandates
that will affect any flights overflying these regions.
AEA & FAA Parts Forum
July began with the AEA & FAA Parts Forum on the acceptability of parts for installation in certified aircraft. While scheduled
well before the recent public announcement by the Experimental
Aircraft Association about its supplemental type certificate for attitude indicator retrofit, this forum discussed the regulatory support
for this type of STC.
During the past two decades, the FAA and industry have
improperly become excessively conservative with regards to
replacement and modification parts. One of the major reasons for
this ultraconservative approach is the misapplication of the FAA's
Suspected Unapproved Parts program and the conservative "justin-case" approach that, just in case a single FAA inspector anywhere in the system might question an element of the installation,
we will simply just treat all aircraft as if they are the latest Boeing
transport. Contrary to the opinion of some, this is, in fact, a new
and novel approach to "parts that are acceptable for installation."
The Parts Forum was supported by the AEA, the Modification
and Replacement Parts Association and the FAA's Small Airplane
Directorate. The FAA headquarters provided presentations and
received recommendations from the attendees on how to streamline
parts acceptance and educate the end users on what is and is not
acceptable. While the regulations allow more flexibility than is
currently being exercised, each option has limitations, and it is the
installer's and owner/operator's responsibility to fully understand
and accept these limitations.
Each of these topics, and many more, will be the foundation of
the regulatory update presented later this year at each of the AEA
Connect Conferences. See you there!
