Panel: Changes in ARP4754B and ARP4761A 

Tuesday, March 15, The Hangar (Ballroom D/E), 3:30 p.m.

ARP4754 was originally issued in November and ARP4761 in December 1996. Revision A to ARP4754 was issued in December 2010. As a result of the revisions made in ARP4754A there are some inconsistencies with ARP4761. To correct these and to prevent the recurrence of inconsistencies, ARP4754B and ARP4761 were planned to be issued concurrently. The scope of the changes in ARP4754B was limited in order to meet this goal of concurrent revision release. This panel will discuss the changes incorporated in the two document revisions and also those changes deferred to the next revision.

Panel: New Development Assurance Guidelines in AIR7209

Wednesday, March 16, Ballroom C, 1:00 p.m.

The purpose of AIR7209, Development Assurance Principles for Aerospace Vehicles and Systems, is to provide a minimum set of safety principles for aircraft and system development. This document provides a basis to: Assess the acceptability of processes for aircraft and/or system development where experience has already demonstrated their effectiveness. Apply emerging technologies where existing techniques are not effective and alternate strategies are not documented in industry guidance. This panel will introduce this new guideline document.
