The FAA is notifying operators that the NTSB amended Part 830 to include five new conditions that require immediate notification upon occurrence. These include propeller blade release; loss of information from cockpit displays; TCAS resolution advisories issued; damage to helicopter tail- or main-rotor blades; and events involving aircraft that land or depart on a taxiway, incorrect runway or other area not designed as a runway, or runway incursions.
