News & Regulatory Updates
Notice of Proposed Amendment 2012-02 issued in March identified the intention of the European Aviation Safety Agency to issue a new acceptable means of compliance material in regards to the approval of the airworthiness and operational considerations of the installation of an electronic flight bag. The proposal includes a new AMC 20-25 and an associated new version of ETSO-2C165a on airport moving map display, as well as a draft opinion to the European Commission to amend the air operation requirements in regards to EFBs. This proposed AMC will eventually supersede and replace the currently used JAA TGL 36. The new AMC would apply to operators for commercial air transport, to type certificate and supplemental type certificate holders, as well as ETSO authorization holders if such equipment is installed and used. This AMC proposal is largely harmonized with FAA AC 120-76A – guidance for the certification, airworthiness and operational approval of electronic flight bag computing devices. Comments should be received by EASA no later than June 18, 2012.
