Now online, the May/June 2014 issue of FAA Safety Briefing is all about Airworthiness Certification and Standards.
The issue looks at the hidden dangers of layering supplemental type certificates (STC), who to go to when your plane has an issue, and how to take care of an aging aircraft.
The issue’s Aeromedical Advisory department (p. 5) introduces Dr. James Fraser as the FAA’s new Federal Air Surgeon, while Angle of Attack (p. 28) covers the new streamlined policy on angle of attack indicators. Vertically Speaking (p. 29) covers some new initiatives by FAA, NTSB, and industry to improve rotorcraft safety.
