Special requirements for transport-category airplanes used as business/VIP jets are being developed by the FAA. According to the agency’s semi-annual listing of proposed revisions under consideration, “This rule will amend the airworthiness standards for transport-category airplanes by adding new cabin interior criteria for operators of private-use airplanes.” If enacted, these standards can be used instead of the specific requirements that affect transport-category airplanes operated by air carriers. Additionally, they will “supplement the requirements for operation under the air traffic and general operating rules.” The rule is intended to provide “alternative criteria for transport-category airplanes that are operated for private use, while continuing to provide an acceptable level of safety for those operations.” A notice of proposed rulemaking is scheduled to be published in the second half of this year.
