The FAA today published Notice of Issuance of Advisory Circular for “Change 1” to AC 23-15A, Small Airplane Certification Compliance Program. “Change 1 to AC 23-15A deletes the fourth sentence in paragraph 5n(2)(e) and deletes “fatigue properties” in fifth sentence in paragraph 5n(2)(e). This change is required since the paragraph was misinterpreted by some, to mean that no fatigue testing is required for composites. A parallel was drawn between the failure phenomenon (at a micro level) of wood and composites. Since the comparison created confusion, all mention of composites is eliminated.” Change 1 was issued on March 15, 2005 and, although Change 1 is not yet available online, when it is it you will be able to find it herewith all of the other published Advisory Circulars.
