ASTM WK30359

    New Specification for Continued Airworthiness System for Light Sport Aircraft

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: F37.70 | Committee F37 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    This specification establishes the minimum requirements for a continued airworthiness system for manufacturers of Light Sport Aircraft (LSA). This specification applies to aircraft seeking civil aviation authority approval in the form of flight certificates, flight permits, or other like documentation.

    Through discussions with civil aviation authorities, industry, auditing bodies, and within the F37 committee itself, it has been decided to undertake a Continued Airworthiness (CA) harmonization effort across LSA aircraft types. The end goal is to consolidate the 5 existing standards into a single standard that can be used and developed across the industry. This effort will first focus on identifying the key differences between the 5 standards. Then, the task group will discuss harmonization of these areas of difference. Finally, the task group will ballot a new CA standard that can be used across all aircraft types.
