How does the 2016 part 23 airworthiness requirements rewrite affect older type certificates?
- If some aspect of an aircraft does not meet the new requirement do all of those aircraft have to be updated accordingly?
- If so, what if the aircraft can't be made to meet new requirements, such as climb rate, etc.
- If one of the new rules are less restrictive than the old can those aircraft take advantage of that?
- Do newly manufactured aircraft of the same type have to get recertified?
- If old type certificates are still valid and the FAA wants one of the new rules to be retroactive will they have to issue airworthiness directives for each type that doesn't meet the new standard?
