FAA - FO 8110.120
Processing Surrendered, Abandoned, And Historical Aircraft Type Certificates
|Publication Date:||2 February 2015|
Purpose of This Order.
This order provides policy and procedures for processing type certificates (TC) or supplemental type certificates (STC) surrendered by a design approval holder (DAH). This order also provides policy and procedures for the TCs and STCs the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) determines to be abandoned, and for "historical aircraft data." This order was prompted by provisions enacted in the Federal Aviation Administration Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 (Public Law 112-95), February 14, 2012 (2012 Act). The provision on release of data was codified in Title 49 of the United States Code (49 U.S.C.) § 44704(a)(5). The material regarding historical aircraft was not codified in Title 49, and remains in § 816 of the 2012 Act.
