General aviation industry hails EASA’s CS-23 rewrite

EASA’s reorganized CS-23 certification rules, which remove certain design limitations for small aircraft, have been praised by general aviation manufacturers.

“These new rules will allow us to bring new aircraft models with features using increased automation to market,” said Simon Caldecott, president and CEO of Piper Aircraft and chairman of GAMA. “We anticipate that these new features will not only help increase the user experience, but will help improve safety. The introduction of the new CS-23 paves the way for a new era in general aviation.”

The rules establish objective and design-independent requirements. The aim is to enable innovative solutions that will enhance safety, while cutting time and certification costs.

“It’s revolutionary, which is why we have been an active supporter of the CS-23 initiative,” said Ivo Boscarol, CEO of Pipistrel. “Right now, we see tremendous opportunities in electric and hybrid propulsion and increased automation. The new CS-23 will enable us to move at the pace of these developments and more readily leverage these innovations.”

“EASA CS-23 are new, smart and flexible rules, prepared with and for a safe innovative general aviation industry,” said Trevor Woods, certification director at EASA.
