New FAR Coming Soon

New Far Coming Soon

A new development aircraft owners should be aware of is a new FAR expected to become effective in early 2011. Designated as FAR 121.1115 it will effectively establish a life limit on airframes. To protect against widespread fatigue damage, once the threshold is reached, the subject aircraft will either have to be permanently removed from service or undergo extensive structural modifications. In the case of the 757, the limit, called a Limit of Validity (LOV), is 50,000 flight cycles and comes into effect 60 months after publication of the FAR. The LOV will vary from model to model. The Aircraft Group can help you ascertain the specifics for your aircraft.
