Use of the term airplane is used throughout this specification and will mean small airplane. 1.3 The applicant for a design approval shall seek the individual guidance to their respective CAA body concerning the use of this specification as part of a certification plan. For information on which CAA regulatory bodies have accepted this specification (in whole or in part) as a means of compliance to their small aircraft airworthiness regulations (hereinafter referred to as the Rules), refer to ASTM Committee F44 web page (www.ASTM.org/COMITTEE/F44.htm), which includes CAA website links. 1.5 Units--The values stated are in SI units followed by U.S. customary units in square brackets. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the standard. 1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory requirements prior to use.
