Aging Transport Systems Rulemaking Advisory Committee

Interior of exposed PlaneThe Aging Transport Systems Rulemaking Advisory Committee (ATSRAC) is a Federal Advisory Committee and is tasked with providing public recommendations to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The committee was chartered on January 19, 1999, by FAA Order 1110.127, which stated "The committee's primary task is to propose such revisions to the Federal Aviation Regulations and associated guidance material as may be appropriate to ensure that non-structural systems in transport airplanes are designed, maintained, and modified in a manner that ensures their continuing operational safety throughout the service life of the airplanes."

ATSRAC has successfully completed all of its tasks.
