Certification Policy Changes

Primary Non-Commercial Aircraft Category


EAA is working to incorporate the final recommendations of the aircraft certification ARC (advisory and rulemaking committee) into FAA regulations. 

That includes a “primary non-commercial” category that would allow owners to modify their aircraft with non-certified safety and situational awareness equipment. Examples could include autopilots, angle of attack indicators, panel-mounted GPS units, and inflatable shoulder harnesses. 

EAA is committed to giving aircraft owners access to current safety technology without prohibitive costs and regulatory burdens.
