Rationale:ARP1558 was unanimously approved by AGE-2, AGE-2C, and the Aerospace Council then published on 10/06/2014. Its Rationale underlines that "This ARP supersedes former AIR1558A … in order to ensure aircraft protection against fuselage damage." The change of document status and contents was agreed because AIR1558A had become obsolete and its application would present a significant safety hazard to newer aircraft types with composite fuselages, dealt with in ARP1558 through state-of-the-art techniques.
Therefore, AIR1558A is hereby cancelled and superseded by ARP1558 for safety reasons.
