Federal Aviation Regulations CFR 14 Part 33 Airworthiness Standards: Aircraft Engines

ABD CFR 14 Part 33, part of the federal aviation regulations (FAR) developed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), describes the requirements for aircraft engines under the airworthiness standards.

Federal Aviation Regulations CFR 14 Part 33 Airworthiness Standards: Aircraft Engines

In this section, airworthiness standards are defined for the issuance of type certificates for aircraft engines and the amendments made to these certificates. Each applicant must demonstrate that the aircraft engine concerned meets the applicable requirements of this section.

14 CFR subpart B contains requirements for design and construction. This subsection describes the general design and construction requirements for piston and turbine aircraft engines. Compatibility and durability of the materials used in the engine,

  • It should be based on experience or testing, and
  • They must conform to approved specifications, such as industry or military specifications, that allow them to have durability and other characteristics assumed in the design data.

The materials used in the design and construction of the engine should minimize the possibility of fire occurrence and spread and the impact of a fire during normal operating and fault conditions. An engine component that is designed, built, and installed to act as a firewall must be non-combustible, constructed so that dangerous amounts of air, liquid, or flame cannot pass around or through the firewall, and must be corrosion-proof.

Engine design and construction should minimize the development of an unsafe condition of the engine between overhaul periods. The design of the compressor and turbine rotor cases must ensure that damage from rotor blade failure is contained. Each component of the propeller blade control system, which is part of the engine type design, must meet the requirements described in this section.

Engine design and construction should provide the necessary cooling under the conditions expected from aircraft operation.

The requirements for engine control systems apply to any system or device that is part of the engine type design, controls, limits or monitors engine operation and is necessary for the continued airworthiness of the engine.

Our organization, with its trained and expert staff and advanced technological equipment, among the numerous test, measurement, analysis and evaluation studies it has given for businesses in various sectors, It also provides airworthiness testing services for aircraft engines under CFR 14 Part 33 of the federal aviation regulations.
