In a Notice of Proposed Policy Statement published in the Federal Register today, the FAA is requesting comments about its proposed policy regarding Propeller Ice Protection Equipment. A copy of the policy statement is available here.
The policy statement is intended to clarify and provide guidance regarding certification of propeller ice protection systems which are governed by overlapping certification requirements in FAR’s Part 23 and Part 35. Although the proposed policy does not create any new requirements, it does clarify “configuration and quality control responsibilities for certificate holders and parts suppliers involved with propeller ice protection systems”.
For further information or to submit comments on the proposed policy statement, contact Jay Turnberg, FAA, Engine and Propeller Standards Staff, ANE-110, 12 New England Executive Park, Burlington, MA 01803; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org; telephone: (781) 238-7116; fax: (781) 238-7199.
