MIL-HDBK-516B (EXPANDED VERSION), ASC/EN AIRWORTHINESS CERTIFICATION CRITERIA - EXPANDED VERSION OF MIL-HDBK-516B (26-SEP-2005)., This document is for the use of Air Force programs to aid in the development of Tailored Airworthiness Certification Criteria (TACC) or Modified Airworthiness Certification Criteria (MACC) documents.
It contains all sections (1 – 20 plus Appendices) from the MIL-HDBK-516B, 26 Sep 2005 publication. The criteria and references (sections 4 through 20) contain the addition of recommended standards and methods of compliance for each of the criterion.
The criteria contained herein are qualitative in nature. More specific guidance and background for specific criteria may be found in the appropriate Joint Service Specification Guides (JSSG) and Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations referenced herein. Also, note that each section contains a list of typical certification source data that may be referenced for evaluating system compliance with that section’s criteria. Terms such as \"acceptable\" used in the criteria are parameters whose specific definition must be determined and documented by the implementing office in the context of each unique air system.
This document is forms the basis for the USAF Airworthiness Certification Criteria future update to MIL-HDBK-516B currently in writing, and may be updated as the standards and methods of compliance sections for each criterion are further developed.
