PURPOSE AND APPLICABILITY

The primary purpose of this Flight Standardization Board (FSB) report is to specify Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) training, checking and currency requirements applicable to flight crews operating Cessna Models 500, 550, S550, and 560, modified with display retrofit STC ST02739NY.  This report provides guidance to operators who will be operating the aircraft under Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 91, Subpart K of Part 91, and Part 135.

 

The guidelines in this report apply to: FAA Operations Inspectors, FAA Principal Operations Inspectors (POI), FAA Training Center Program Managers (TCPM), and FAA Aircrew Program Managers.  This report also applies to 14 CFR 135 Air Carrier Check Airmen and Instructors, Airline Transport Pilots instructing in air transportation service, Certificated Flight Instructors, Designated Pilot Examiners, Aircrew Program Designees, Training Center Evaluators, and 14 CFR Part 61, 135, 141 and 142 training providers.

 

This FSB Report has been written in accordance with the requirements of Advisory Circular (AC) 120-53A.  The contents of this FSB Report are applicable on the effective date of its final approval and will remain effective unless amended, superseded, or withdrawn by subsequent FSB determinations.

 

Provisions of the report include:

 

This report also provides:

Information which is advisory in nature, but may be mandatory (under 14 CFR part 135 operations specifications for particular operators) if the designated configurations apply and if approved for that operator.

 

 

 

 

PILOT TYPE RATING DETERMINATION

 

In accordance with 14 CFR Parts 1 and 61, the pilot type rating designation for the CE-500 pilot type rating for Cessna Models 500, 550, S550, and 560 aircraft, modified with display retrofit STC ST02739NY, is designated as CE-500.

 

The Second-In-Command Pilot Type Rating (CE-500 SIC PRIVILEGES ONLY) may be issued in accordance with 14 CFR Part 61.55.

 

 

MASTER DIFFERENCE REQUIREMENTS

 

MDRs are requirements applicable to crew qualification, which pertain to differences between variants of the same or related type and are listed in Appendix 1.

 

MDR requirements apply when differences between related aircraft affect flight crew knowledge, skills, or abilities related to flight safety.  These differences are expressed in difference levels A through E as defined in AC 120-53A.

OPERATOR DIFFERENCE REQUIREMENTS

 

ODR tables are developed by each individual 14 CFR 135 operator when differences exist which affect crew qualification.

The tables are examples and may not include items that are applicable to particular operators.

The example ODR tables in this report are not the only acceptable means of compliance.  Operators, who wish to establish a different means of compliance, must request FAA approval through their assigned POI for ODR tables unique to their fleet.  The POI should coordinate this action with the FSB chairman and AFS-200.

Sample ODR tables are provided are included in Appendix 2.

 

 

 

 

FSB SPECIFICATIONS FOR CHECKING

 

Checking Requirements

 

All checking requirements (61.58, 61.63, 61.157, 135.293, and 135.297) should be administered in accordance with the FAA Airline Transport Pilot and Aircraft Type Rating Practical Test Standards, document  number FAA-S-8081-5F, as amended.

 

FSB SPECIFICATIONS FOR CURRENCY

 

Mixed Fleet Operations

 

When MDR/ODR specifies Level C Currency, currency is maintained by operating the variant aircraft through a complete flight cycle including an instrument approach procedure within the previous 90 days.  Currency may be reestablished by completing a Line Check with a Line Check Airman, completion on a proficiency check in the variant aircraft or compliance with 14 CFR 61.57(c) or (d) recent flight experience requirements in the variant airplane

 

When MDR/ODR specifies Level D Currency, currency is maintained by operating the variant aircraft through 3 complete flight cycles (takeoff, departure, arrival, approach and landing) within the previous 90 days.  Currency may be reestablished by completing a Line Check, completion on a Proficiency Check in the variant aircraft or compliance with 14 CFR 61.57(c) or (d) recent flight experience requirements in the variant airplane.

 

Landing Currency

 

Takeoffs and landings performed in unmodified or aircraft modified with STC ST02739NY, may be credited interchangeably for meeting the requirements of 14 CFR 135.247 and 14 CFR 61.57.

FSB SPECIFICATIONS FOR DEVICES AND SIMULATORS

Device and Simulator Characteristics

Device and simulator characteristics are designated in AC 120-40 and 120-45 (as amended) or 14 CFR 60.  The acceptability of differences between devices, simulators, and aircraft must be determined for each approved training program.

Device Approval

Requests for device approval should be made through local CHDO to the National Simulator Program (NSP).  NSP criteria for flight devices and simulators are acceptable as published.

ALTERNATE MEANS OF COMPLIANCE

 

Approval Level and Approval Criteria Alternate means of compliance to the provisions of this report, must be approved by Kansas City Aircraft Evaluation Group.  If alternate compliance is sought, operators will be required to establish that any proposed alternate means provides an equivalent level of safety to the provisions of this FSB report.  Analysis, demonstrations, proof of concept testing, differences documentation, or other evidence may be required.

 

Requires Equivalent Safety In the event alternate compliance is sought, training program hour reductions, simulator approvals, and device approvals may be significantly limited and reporting requirements may be increased to assure equivalent safety.  FAA will generally not consider relief through alternate compliance means, unless sufficient lead time has been planned by an operator to allow for any necessary testing and evaluation.

 

Unforeseen Circumstances In the event of clearly unforeseen circumstances in which it is not possible for an operator to comply with report provisions, the operators may seek an interim equivalent program rather than a permanent alternate compliance method.  Financial arrangements, schedule adjustment, and other such reasons are not considered “unforeseen circumstances” for the purposes of this provision.

1. Purpose and Applicability

 

The following is provided for the benefit of FAA Principal Inspectors and aircraft operators for their use in determining the acceptance of EFB applications.  As described in AC 120-76A, Guidelines for the Certification, Airworthiness, and Operational Approval of Electronic Flight Bags Computing Devices, the Integrated Systems and Solutions (IS&S) Avionics system with optional Electronic Chart Server Unit configured for electronic charts is certified Class 3 EFB Hardware and Type C applications.

 

b

 

The EFB evaluation determined Integrated Systems and Solutions (IS&S) Avionics system with optional Electronic Chart Server Unit configured for electronic charts are suitable as one source, for electronic display of airport diagrams, approach plates, arrival procedures, and departure procedures.

 

Since chart information cannot be displayed while on emergency power, or in the event of certain avionics failures, a suitable backup source of aeronautical information is required.

 

All Flight Manual Supplement limitations must be complied with regarding use of Optional Electronic Chart Server Unit configured for electronic charts or satellite weather data .

 

3. FSB Specifications for Training

 

As a minimum the crew should use the EFB electronic chart functions to pull up airport depiction charts, Departure Procedures, Arrival Procedures, and approach charts.  If configured for satellite weather data, p ilots should be proficient in using all weather data functions available.

 

4. FSB Specification for Checking

 

Recommended tasks include demonstrating competency using electronic chart functions, to display departures, arrivals, and approaches during normal, abnormal and emergency procedures.  If configured for satellite weather data, p ilots should demonstrate proficiency using all weather data functions available.

utilizing the graphical weather text functions, if configured for satellite weather data.

 

5. FSB Specification for Currency

 

Recommended tasks include demonstrating competency in using electronic chart functions to display departures, arrivals, approaches, and weather data functions if configured.
