Federal Aviation Administration, DOT 

Pt. 60, App. D 

(ii) Used by another FAA certificate holder 

in that other certificate holder’s FAA-ap-
proved flight training program for the heli-
copter simulated (as described in § 60.7(d)(1)). 
This 12-month period is established in the 
same manner as in example one; or 

(iii) Provided a statement each year from a 

qualified pilot, (after having flown the heli-
copter not the subject FTD or another FTD, 
during the preceding 12-month period) stat-
ing that the subject FTD’s performance and 
handling qualities represent the helicopter 
(as described in § 60.7(d)(2)). This statement is 
provided at least once in each 12-month pe-
riod established in the same manner as in ex-
ample one. 

(b) There is no minimum number of hours 

of FTD use required. 

(3) Example Three. 
(a) A sponsor in New York (in this exam-

ple, a Part 142 certificate holder) establishes 
‘‘satellite’’ training centers in Chicago and 
Moscow. 

(b) The satellite function means that the 

Chicago and Moscow centers must operate 
under the New York center’s certificate (in 
accordance with all of the New York center’s 
practices, procedures, and policies; e.g., in-
structor and/or technician training/checking 
requirements, record keeping, QMS pro-
gram). 

(c) All of the FTDs in the Chicago and Mos-

cow centers could be dry-leased (i.e., the cer-
tificate holder does not have and use FAA- 
approved flight training programs for the 
FTDs in the Chicago and Moscow centers) 
because— 

(i) Each FTD in the Chicago center and 

each FTD in the Moscow center is used at 
least once each 12-month period by another 
FAA certificate holder in that other certifi-
cate holder’s FAA-approved flight training 
program for the helicopter (as described in 
§ 60.7(d)(1)); or 

(ii) A statement is obtained from a quali-

fied pilot (having flown the helicopter, not 
the subject FTD or another FTD during the 
preceding 12-month period) stating that the 
performance and handling qualities of each 
FTD in the Chicago and Moscow centers rep-
resents the helicopter (as described in 
§ 60.7(d)(2)).

EQUIREMENTS

 

a. Flight test data used to validate FTD 

performance and handling qualities must 
have been gathered in accordance with a 
flight test program containing the following: 

(1) A flight test plan consisting of: 
(a) The maneuvers and procedures required 

for aircraft certification and simulation pro-
gramming and validation. 

(b) For each maneuver or procedure— 
(i) The procedures and control input the 

flight test pilot and/or engineer used. 

(ii) The atmospheric and environmental 

conditions. 

(iii) The initial flight conditions. 
(iv) The helicopter configuration, includ-

ing weight and center of gravity. 

(v) The data to be gathered. 
(vi) All other information necessary to 

recreate the flight test conditions in the 
FTD. 

(2) Appropriately qualified flight test per-

sonnel. 

(3) Appropriate and sufficient data acquisi-

tion equipment or system(s), including ap-
propriate data reduction and analysis meth-
ods and techniques, acceptable to the FAA’s 
Aircraft Certification Service. 

b. The data, regardless of source, must be 

presented: 

(1) In a format that supports the FTD vali-

dation process; 

(2) In a manner that is clearly readable and 

annotated correctly and completely; 

(3) With resolution sufficient to determine 

compliance with the tolerances set forth in 
Attachment 2, Table D2A Appendix D; 

(4) With any necessary guidance informa-

tion provided; and 

(5) Without alteration, adjustments, or 

bias. Data may be corrected to address 
known data calibration errors provided that 
an explanation of the methods used to cor-
rect the errors appears in the QTG. The cor-
rected data may be re-scaled, digitized, or 
otherwise manipulated to fit the desired 
presentation
