    Abstract

    This specification provides airworthiness design requirements for general aeroplane performance, and is applicable to small aeroplanes as defined in Terminology F3060. The applicant for a design approval shall seek the individual guidance to their respective civil aviation authority (CAA) body concerning the use of this specification as part of a certification plan.

    Performance requirements cover: stalling and takeoff speeds, takeoff performance, accelerate-stop distance, takeoff path, takeoff distance and takeoff run, takeoff flight path, climb, en route climb/descent, glide, reference landing approach speed, landing distance, and balked landing.

    This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification establishes the airworthiness design standards associated with general aeroplane performance.

    1.2 This specification is applicable to small aeroplanes as defined in Terminology F3060.

    1.3 The applicant for a design approval shall seek the individual guidance to their respective civil aviation authority (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 the ASTM Committee F44 webpage (www.astm.org/COMMITTEE/F44.htm) which includes CAA website links.

    1.4 Units—The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. 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.

    1.5 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 limitations prior to use.
