The design of large transport aircraft is governed by EASA's CS-25 regulation and the FAA's FAR Part 25 regulation.

It seems however that these regulations are nearly identical. It is obvious that a lot of collaboration took place between the two authorities in the creation of these standards.

Are there any major differences between these standards?

  • $\begingroup$ I know the regulations are massive documents and with a lot of sections and I'm sure there are a few small differences but am really interested, as the question states, in major differences. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Jonny I'd make your intention to ask for the major differences only easier to recognize in the question. Formatting helps a lot here ;) $\endgroup$ Apr 21 '15 at 20:14

    $\begingroup$ There are literally thousands of differences between them, including many major ones. This question is indeed too broad. $\endgroup$
