FAA Seeks Comment On ATP Revisions

The FAA is accepting comments until Dec. 21 on its proposed new ATP
certification standards, which have been posted online. The standards
were revised by an industry group chaired by David Oord, AOPA senior
director of regulatory affairs, working with the FAA’s Aviation
Rulemaking Advisory Committee. The working group proposed the new
standards, and the FAA has accepted the proposal. Interested parties
can review the proposal and submit comments online:
The working group’s goal was to ensure that the aeronautical-knowledge
elements in the regulations “reflect what airmen really need to know
for safe operation in the National Airspace System,” said Oord. The
standard improves on the prior ATP practical test standard by
consolidating overlapping tasks, AOPA said, and connects the knowledge
standards for risk management and skill with content in FAA handbooks.
Also, a Human Factors Task was added. The FAA and the industry group
have been working since January 2014 to develop new standards,
training guidance, test management, and reference materials for airman

Authority for This Action
Under 49 U.S.C. 44703(a), the Administrator is required to issue an
airman certificate when the Administrator finds, after investigation,
that an individual is qualified for, and physically able to perform
the duties related to the position authorized by the certificate.
Consistent with this authority, the Administrator establishes testing
standards to ensure that inspectors and designated examiners
conducting practical tests under the Administrator's authority
determine that an applicant is qualified for and physically able to
perform the duties related to the position authorized by the
certificate or rating sought.
The FAA established the Aviation Rulemaking Advisory Committee (ARAC)
to provide information, advice, and recommendations on aviation
related issues that could result in rulemaking to the Administrator,
through the Associate Administrator of Aviation Safety. On December
19, 2013, ARAC accepted the FAA's assignment of a new task to
establish an Airman Certification Standards Working Group (ACS WG) to
assist in the development of standards, training guidance, test
management, and reference materials for airman certification testing.
The FAA announced the ARAC's acceptance of this task through a Federal
Register Notice published on January 29, 2014 (79 FR 4800). The
original task focused on the Private Pilot, Commercial Pilot, ATP, and
Authorized Instructor certificates and the Instrument Rating in the
airplane category. The task was expanded in February 2016 (81 FR 6099)
to include the Aircraft Mechanic certificate with Airframe and/or
Powerplant ratings. The task was further expanded in September 2017 to
add the Sport Pilot and Recreational Pilot certificates in all
airplane categories, and the Private Pilot, Commercial Pilot, ATP, and
Instructor certificates and the Instrument rating in the remaining
aircraft categories to include rotorcraft, powered-lift, and glider.
On June 21, 2018, the ARAC met and approved the Interim Final Report
of the ACS WG. The Interim Final Report contained a recommendation for
the Airline Transport Pilot and Type Rating for Airplane (ATP/Type
Rating) ACS. The FAA received that recommendation from ARAC on June
22, 2018. The FAA has reviewed the draft ATP/Type Rating ACS, made
some changes based on internal feedback, and is now seeking comment
from the public. A copy of the document has been placed in the docket
for this action. The FAA will review and consider all comments
received and make any necessary changes prior to issuing the final
version of the ATP/Type Rating ACS. The final version of the ATP/Type
Rating ACS will be published at
The FAA invites interested persons to join in this notice and comment
process by filing written comments, data, or views. The most helpful
comments reference a specific portion of the proposal, explain the
reason for any recommended change, and include supporting data. To
ensure the docket does not contain duplicate comments, commenters
should send only one copy of written comments or, if comments are
filed electronically, commenters should submit only one time. More
information on submitting comments can be found in the ADDRESSES
section of this document.
The FAA will review all comments it receives on or before the closing
date for the comment period. The FAA will consider comments submitted
after the comment period has closed if it is possible to do so without
incurring expense or delay. The FAA may make changes based on the
comments it receives.
Issued in Washington, DC, on October 16, 2018.
