FAA “reaches significant milestone on eVTOL certification with EASA”

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has announced that it has reached “a significant milestone on the path to certifying electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft” with the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).

The statement provided a link to Advisory Circular: AC 21.17-4 Type Certification—Powered-lift, which provides guidance for the type, production, and airworthiness certification of powered-lift. “This AC also designates the criteria in appendix A as an acceptable means, but not the only means, of showing compliance with title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 21.17(b) for Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) type certification of certain powered-lift.”

“This also marks important progress in our effort to more closely align rulemaking and policy initiatives between the United States and the European Union. We’re committed to ensuring the safety of the flying public both at home and abroad,” said the FAA in a statement.
