Welcome to our Terms and Definitions Feedback Form!

Just as with every other publisher of rapidly evolving, complex content, occasionally there are things that we can improve upon. Sometimes the reasons for this are technical and sometimes they're not. What makes our materials and system unique is that, thanks to this direct link to our editorial team which you are now using, we can rapidly consider and incorporate your feedback. We hope that you can appreciate that we have this system in place not because our stuff is shoddy, but, rather, because it is good.

We gladly and sincerely welcome constructive, considered, and, where possible, cross-referenced feedback on specific items of content using the form below.

Information
  • This is not the place for technical or customer support requests! We'll be happy to hear from you on such issues via our Online Helpdesk. Please use this form only to provide feedback relating specifically to one very particular piece of content (such as a single term/definition) as your message here will go to our editorial team only, not our technical or customer support staff. You will not receive a timely response (and in fact might get none at all) if you submit such a message through this system instead of via our helpdesk.
  • Please make sure your app/program content is up to date before using this feature - A very high percentage of false reports we get via this system can be traced to the fact that the user does not have the latest version of the program content on his/her device. Please be 100% sure (especially if you are thinking about submitting a ticket about a "missing image") that before submitting a ticket here that you have used the in-app or in-program update utility for the program or app in question (often available via a 'get updates' or 'check for updates' link or button from the main menu). This will also help ensure that you are studying the latest and greatest material!

Here is the current term:  If below it different substantially compared to how it appears in your app/software, be sure to update your software/app's content prior to using this form.
Part 23
Part 23 contains airworthiness standards for airplanes in the normal, utility, aerobatic, and commuter categories. It dictates the standards required for issuance and change of type certificates for airplanes in these categories. E.g., the maximum takeoff weight of an airplane in the normal, utility or acrobatic category cannot exceed 12,500 lb, while in the commuter category it cannot exceed 19,000 lb. CFR 14 Part 23 is a section (Part) of the USA/FAA Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs) that deals with Airworthiness Standards: Normal, Utility, Acrobatic and Commuter Airplanes.

This part has a large number of regulations to ensure airworthiness in areas such as structural loads, airframe, performance, stability, controllability, and safety mechanisms, how the seats must be constructed, oxygen and air pressurization systems, fire prevention, escape hatches, flight management procedures, flight control communications, emergency landing procedures, and other limitations, as well as testing of all the systems of the aircraft. It also determines special aspects of aircraft performance such as stall speed (e.g., for single engine airplanes – not more than 61 knots), rate of climb (not less than 300 ft/min), take-off speed (not less than 1.2 x VS1), and weight of each pilot and passenger (170 lb for airplanes in the normal and commuter categories, and 190 lb for airplanes in the acrobatic and utility categories).

The Cessna 177, Cirrus SR20 and Piper PA-34 Seneca are well-known airplanes types that were certificated to FAR Part 23.

Most of the Federal Aviation Regulations, including Part 23, commenced on February 1, 1965. Prior to that date, airworthiness standards for airplanes in the normal, utility and acrobatic categories were promulgated in Part 3 of the US Civil Air Regulations. Many well-known types of light airplane are type certificated to CAR Part 3, even though they remained in production after 1965. For example, the Cessna 150 and Piper Cherokee are type certificated to CAR Part 3.

Note
Please do not use this form to tell us that the definition you saw doesn't necessarily match the context where you saw it. We use an automated keyword-based system to match the tens of thousands of definitions in our glossaries with our material. Sometimes, when a term has more than one meaning or use or when an abbreviation might stand for more than one thing or resemble a 'normal' word, this results in a definition for a term being shown that doesn't necessarily match the context. Please do not report such issues here. Rather, please use your best judgment to evaluate whether such definitions apply to what you're reading. If the answer is 'no' but nevertheless you feel the term doen't have a good definition in our system but should, please go back and find the 'suggest a term' link in the app. Thanks!
We welcome your feedback.  Please carefully fill out the specifics below. If you wish to comment on more than one term/definition, please fill out and submit this form separately for each.
