New Practice for External Loads and Aeroelastic Compliance Demonstration for multimodal VTOL/eVTOL aircraft

1. Scope

The scope of the Committee shall be the development and maintenance of standards and guidance materials intended to be acceptable means of compliance for general aviation aircraft rules and regulations around the world. The committee shall address the full spectrum of general aviation aircraft.
The work of this Committee will be coordinated with other ASTM committees and organizations having mutual interest.


F3116; F3093; F3115; aeroelasticity; flutter; divergence; control reversal; aeroservoelasticity; external loads; eVTOL; rotordynamics; dynamics; structural dynamics; durability; fatigue loads


The existing requirements in F3116, F3115 and F3093 were not written considering aircraft capable of vertical takeoff and landing or mixed vertical and conventional flight. This standard is intended to be used as part of the means of compliance for multimodal VTOL/eVTOL aircraft currently being certified under regulatory requirements related to 14 CFR Part 23/CS-23/Part 27/CS-27 and EASA CS-VTOL.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
