FAA moving AD databases Aug. 16
The FAA is decommissioning several Airworthiness Directives databases Aug. 16, 2022, in the Regulatory Guidance Library, including:
- Emergency Airworthiness Directives (EAD)
- Airworthiness Directives (AD)
- Airworthiness Directives: Biweekly (AD Biweekly)
After Aug. 16, the AD documents will only be available on the newly developed Dynamic Regulatory System (DRS).
FAA officials note that PDF tutorial guides for the new system are available if you contact them via email at 9-AVS-AIR-Regulatory-and-Guidance-Library@FAA.gov.
You can subscribe to receive notifications about published ADs and EADs by navigating to the FAA GovDelivery Service. If you are already subscribed to notifications, you don’t have to take any other action, FAA officials reported.
Additionally, the FAA will continue to mail copies of the AD Biweekly, which is a paid subscription of all ADs issued in the Federal Register over the previous two-week period, officials noted.
