Summary of Change. Volume 3, Chapter 18, Section 3, Part A Operations Specifications—General.

Explanation of Policy Changes. This change incorporates new information into Volume 3, Chapter 18, Section 3, OpSpec A015. This change serves to streamline the process for issuing OpSpec A015, Autopilot in Lieu of a Second in Command. Before, this was treated as a deviation, and was added to A005. Title 14 CFR part 135, § 135.105 authorizes the use of an autopilot without requiring a request for deviation. No longer will PIs be able to select this in OpSpec A005. They will simply issue A015 to authorize this change.
